One Shots: A well-rounded Hobbit (breakfast)
With the prodigious and well-known appetite of Hobbits, it’s a total surprise to me that the Shire hasn’t been stripped bare with these creatures’ all-consuming need for tummy fuel. Maybe that’s what the Scouring of the Shire was? It wasn’t in the movies, I wouldn’t know.
Anyway, Amorey contemplates eating 9,000 calories in one go: “Please note the very surprised look on my Hobbit’s face: ‘What about second breakfast ? Luncheon ? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?’ Eleven years in LOTRO is a big milestone for a tiny Hobbit.”
Also, do they have food wars? Weight watchers? I have so many questions about the dietary lives of these people.
Last week’s screenshot challenge to find and document “ugly” MMO zones wasn’t as huge of a draw for our commenters (can’t imagine why!), but a few were up to the challenge.
ESD noted this weird occurance: “Ugly zone is a hard one, had to dig into the archives. Pictured is the first hostile territory from Skyforge, can’t remember the name. Not that bad looking actually, but it is the thought process that gets me: A set of small tropical islands, OK. Jungle and palm trees, check. Beaches and sandbars, check. Always overcast with just a little sunlight, check. Wait what?”
Anyone want to join Utakata for a picnic in the scenic locale of World of Warcraft’s Eastern Plaguelands? Anyone? Anyone?
“You don’t want to eat the mushrooms around here,” she said. You’ll start seeing spots! And spots are bad…”
“A couple of Massively posters were wondering if Morn, the alien bar customer from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, was still holding down a barstool in Star Trek Online,” wrote Mysecretid. “Oh, yes he is! If you walk into Quark’s Bar on the venerable space station, you can walk up to Morn and actually ask him what he’s been doing all this time! I won’t spoil what happens next.”
I will spoil it. He straight-up murders your face and then wears your head as a hat. That Morn, what a joker.
Deekay_plus got spiffied up for the occasion in Star Citizen. I’m still not completely sold on the aesthetic of the game. It’s attractive, don’t get me wrong, but in a sterile, stainless steel-sort of way. I want my space neon, darn it!
“I took some trips to various moons of Crusader this week and bought some armour with in game moneyz,” he wrote. How do you think he looks?
Giant spiders are everywhere in MMOs. In fact, you’re fighting one right now. So why not take a picture of it, its brood, or its living quarters for this week’s screenshot challenge?
