One Shots: Past your curfew

    
23

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.

All right kiddos, I’ve done my part — now it’s time for you to do yours! Slather our comments with your best or most interesting MMO screenshots along with a story or two from them! Context, after all, matters.

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Long story short: Murderhobo killed SantaGacha (He was coming right for us!) and nearly ruined the ARK holiday stream.

There was also that one time I convinced the gang to participate in Naked Clown Survivor.

Yeah, I’m clearly doing the image links wrong. :( I’ve tried in two different threads, and my posts both just vanished into “awaiting moderation.” Which seems to be web-page-ese for “You did it WRONG!”

Two pigtailed tips…

1) You can always load up images directly from your hard drive that you have saved there. You don’t have to deal with fickle 3rd party hosts that way.

2) You can contact admin via the TIPS page or the flag them on the right hand corner of your message if you are looking for help with this.

…hope this helps! /bows

I guess it’s useful to know that it *can* be done. But I have no idea how to upload images from my computer, either. That’s why I was trying to use Imgur – there’s no obvious “upload” or “attach” tool in the very limited editing selection, so I assumed it had to be stored offsite.

In the comment box, click the little camera icon in the bottom right, a new row will appear at the bottom.
Click of those icons and it will open a file explorer window, browse to where your images are located, select and click the ‘open’ button.
Done.

Thank you. If I have ever noticed the extremely tiny camera icon, I would have assumed it was a “take Screenshot” function, not something to attach an image to the post.

PS: Thanks for the plug again, Mr. Justin.

…to be clear though, I believe Dance Studios was a concept to customize our toon’s dance moves from their default racial dances ingame. Much like the Barber Shop does with our physical features. I don’t think it was ever meant as dance instance where you characters show their stuff picted in my contribution. Sorry to say. >.<

Me and my infinite Allods screenshots haha. Yes i really enjoy the game, the story is top notch. Yes, again, huge disclaimer, only on the p2p server.

You can see here our fleet, League and Empire united against a common enemy, the Architects. We were sent on a certain Allod to investigate what we can about the “Gates II” project. After a long adventure through a lab-gone-wrong we found an Object that turned out to be a gate towards another planet full of unfriendly critters. Fast forward after that adventure was over, the Architects, shapers of time and space, invaded another Allod and i was sent there to help how i can, and as you can see, i have the whole space cavalry with me

Few mobs scares me and i played TSW, this monster reminded me of old folk story in my country, people say in a certain valley you can see hands coming out of the ground, they appear only at night and they throw rocks at people, this was a scary idea for 5 years-old-me.

I said before i don’t like mushroom, so how about dungeon full of mushroom and spores? and a lovely monster boss is just a bonus.

And #3 does not need context … it’s better that way 😂

The last one is such an FF14 moment.

So I got married in-game. Purely a business transaction, I wanted the glam and mount. I’m working on the HW Machinist relic weapon because I’m not overly fond of the new relic weapon design. I look good in a tux. I look equally fabulous in…well, whatever it is I’m wearing in the remaining screenshots :)

@Justin thanks for the shout out this week!

It was at this point that I regretted turning right at Albuquerque.
