One Shots: I just got catfished


Catfishing used to be a delectable activity. Then the internet came along, and it turned into something dark and sinister. So let’s applaud Final Fantasy XIV for reclaiming the positive aura of fish who look like cats and can somehow read.

Minimalistway documents this moment as “the day when catfish learned how to hold a book. There was so much joy and some ignited catfish running around.”

Yrys is making friends and hopefully avoiding bear urine in Embers Adrift: “This was taken during the first GM-run event, where mistcrawlers (bats) invaded spider territory, and spiders captured the mistcrawler queen (or something like that). Waves of spiders also attacked Ravenrock, one of the ‘town’ areas. It was pretty fun for a first event, though not perfect.”

But with the mega-spiders gone, what’s going to eat the mega-mosquitoes?

As we all well know, One Shots is the classiest place to post proud pictures of your MMO house. So let us give our attention and polite applause to Josh at this time.

“I ended up making a lounge for my FFXIV free company in my room. I love how it came out so I figured I’d share.”

“This was the first year that I did the Wistmead quests in Lord of the Rings Online,” said Bel. “I was surprised and pleased when I could actually go inside the post office – I don’t know if that has always been an option or was added with the Wistmead quest. But it’s just fun finding new places in old areas.”

And to wrap things up, Katriana took us on a journey through Guild Wars 2’s history: “A tiny bit of Old Lion’s Arch that still exists just outside the gate in Gendarran Fields. Somehow, I hadn’t really paid attention to this before!”
