One Shots: Past your curfew


One lesser-known fact about the life of adventurers is that they all have to submit to a daily curfew. By the time the sun’s setting, they need to be home so that they can wash the gore off of their armor, the mud off of their boots, and sit down with the family to enjoy a nice homecooked meal.

Breaking this curfew, it should be said, is done on penalty of extreme nagging. So I can just hear SmiteDoctor’s mom calling to him in Elder Scrolls Online, even as this majestic Templar ignores the rules in favor of exploring Mournhold at night.

And if you just so happen to be out after dark, you might discover the things that go bump in the night. Hirku Two had a close encounter of the ugly kind in Secret World: “The zombie hulk is a face only a mother could love and… oh wait, Mom just tossed her cookies too. Never mind.”

I think I’ll wander over to Utakata’s neck of the World of Warcraft woods, where “New York City Goblins” are partying quite hard, possibly to ignore thinking about how a dance studio in this game never, ever materialized.

And if you are ever looking to take a scenic cruise around Grand Theft Auto Online, Hikari knows all of the best vantage points:

And out of all of Vincent’s regular parade of gorgeous Final Fantasy XIV shots, this picture of a very put-upon peacock has raised so many questions in my mind. It might well be the single most impractical mount I’ve ever seen, unless there are load-bearing peacocks somewhere that I don’t know about.
