One Shots: Fresh from the portal of death


When he stepped through the portal and toward a brand-new world, this Dwarf didn’t realize that he’d be disintegrated — and an identical copy would step out on the far side. How many times must he die for the cause of exploration and adventure? And will he ever look back and see the pile of his own corpses left in his wake?

As we contemplate that, say “hi” to Minimalistway’s newest character in RIFT: “Starting a new adventure with my good pal Alfredo and my good beard!”

“I’m back in City of Heroes,” said Sixuality, “and finding myself swinging a sword at a burning magma monster in an ancient underground city. I’m not sure if I should be declaring ‘You shall not pass!’ or ‘It’s clobberin’ time!'”

Either way, you’re going to get a copyright strike, I’m guessing!

“Wargaming promised no submarines (ever) in World of Warships,” pointed out Rees Racer. “But after a couple of years of testing, here it is. It’s not nearly as awful as much of the forum vitriol might suggest. It is certainly niche-play, and I enjoy them. The German Kriegsmarine produced well over 500 examples of the Type VII U-boat, and most were sunk…just like this one of mine.”

Meanwhile, Hurbster is living and breathing grape vapors in Final Fantasy XIV: “The weather was cloudy with a touch of purple.”

And finally, IronSalamander8 brings us yet another gorgeous vista from one of the Plants vs. Zombies games: “No Halloween this week, but how about a zombie tank commander with a monkey bunker (that fires bananas) on his head taking in some of the sights on Boney Island?”
