One Shots: Martial yoga


It’s not a very well-known fact that the most successful armies in fantasy worlds are the ones that take the time to limber up before a bout. Combining yoga and weapon posing is perhaps the most shrewd decision by military generals since the shield wall formation.

And you best know that elite players like Vincent are on top of the latest trends: “Messing around with a couple FC mates on the moon in Final Fantasy XIV. Y’know… a normal Sunday sort of thing.”

Weapon yoga is also a thing in World of Warcraft, even when you can’t find a proper instrument of war to wield. I’ve heard it said that six-day old stale bread is a mighty substitute indeed.

Minimalistway spotted these intrepid warriors limbering up: “Defending the village: The Hammer, The Fists, and The Mighty Baguette. I hope next new class will be a baker.”

Welcome new poster Easter Candie to this space, even if E.C. is a suspected drug mule for the Khajiit in Elder Scrolls Online.

“We were somewhere around Elsweyr on the edge of the desert when the skooma began to take hold.”

“Hirku, you just thanked Justin for featuring your One Shots submission. What are you going to do next?”

“I’m going to Disfeyland!”

And I’ll grace you all with a recent Lord of the Rings Online pic I took next to a statue in North Ithilien. We both may be overgrown with ivy, but the chlorophyll brings out the best in our complexion!
