And if one thing should be taken from this experience, above anything else, should the fate of the universe ever be in your hands, only bother to seek the aid of girls under the age of 30.

Truer words have never been spoken.

The brunette on the last page is gooooorgeous!

Lesbian karate witches. What an excellent band name.
 
2006-02-03 3:43:45 PM  
I thought the last word of that headline was going to be a LOT different than 'quests.'

Meh, I would have handed out the "Broken I.W.I.N. Button" as a reward.

/obscure?

Or a locked box, then the questers could have paid my friend to open it for them, only to find it contained a bolt of linen cloth.

Misty morning, clouds in the sky,
Without warning a wizard walks by,
Casting his shadow, weaving his spell,
Funny clothes/Funny cloak, twinkling bell*

Never talking,
Just keeps walking,
Causing his magic

Evil power disappears
Demons worry when the wizard is near
He turns tears into joy,
Ev'ryone's happy when the wizard walks by

Never talk'n,
Just keeps walk'n,
Spreadin' his magic

Sun is shining; clouds have gone by,
All the people give a happy sigh,
He has passed by, giving his sign,
Left all the people feeling so fine

Never talk'n,
Just keeps walk'n,
Spreadin' his magic

I seriously want to go around in Seattle with a little golden Exclamation point held over my head, and if anyone stops, I'll give them chocolate coins to collect some sort of plant for me.
Wait even better, have a guy dress up strange, and make it a kill quest.

And use yellow chalk for the exclamation point, and move after you give them the quest to a question mark...


God I want to do it.
 
2006-02-03 7:40:11 PM  
Mmm, the ladies on the last page... I'd give them some XP.

Ding! Level up!

Laugh now, but if one TV executive reads this story, it will be Fox's next reality series.
 
2006-02-03 7:43:31 PM  
I'm pretty sure he is pondering whether or not he looks like a really old Patrick Stewart.
 
2006-02-03 7:44:06 PM  
hah, very nice read.

ive always wonder though, why the hell cant this poor bastard in every RPG clean out his own basement/sewer/celler/haunted house. why is it me? cant he just call the damn exterminators?


with that said, i really need to get back into RPGs again. i havnt played an online rpg since Diablo 2: Lord of destruction.

i think that this is hilarious - good for him to be carefree enough to try and pull this off. i love the "hello, fellow wizrd" comments to other men with grey beards

i laughed out loud, which i never do.
