Ralph the Wonder Llama has a question for you: "Ever wondered what the inside of a god's home looks like?"
Well, yes, but only because I was once invited over to Jeff Daniel's pad for drinks and snooker. Oh wait, in-game? No, I haven't. Please, tell me more, Mr. Wonder Llama.
, my little Warrior was sent to the lair of the sleeping god Sikander to make sure he wouldn't wake up all groggy and cranky," he writes. "Long story short, he wasn't as happy to see me as I might have hoped. Luckily I managed to snap this awesome screenshot before everything went kablooey!"
Some of you are actually rising to meet my weekly challenges! Reader Bill heard my call for pop culture references a while back and sent in this interesting observation from RIFT
: "The recent Storm Legion
area, Dendrome, has its borders patrolled by these Architects who look a lot like the creatures who inhabited the moon in the '60s movie The First Men In The Moon, taken from an old H.G. Wells novel. These creatures spawn all over the border in small groups and march to the nearest border fort to attack and establish a foothold."
Coincidence or inside joke? Either way, it makes one think. Hmm.
Do we have time for one more TERA
pic? I think we do because reader Joe has sent us one that will make future news posts relating to the economy that much more eye-popping.
Joe gives us the 412 (that's one number better): "I'm sure it's true in MMOs other than this one, but after running through a dungeon, cavern, or castle, killing enemies, and picking up the odd coins that they drop, when you come to the room that's stacked with some pirate's plunder, you just have to say, 'Hello, I would like to loot all, please!'"
Here's a fun screenshot challenge for you: calendar pin-ups! Pretend that One Shots is making a calendar (and who the heck knows, I could use all revenue streams possible to get away from the Massively "servant" dungeons) and send us in an alluring pin-up for posting.
Want to be featured in a future edition of One Shots? Send your favorite MMO screenshots to email@example.com, and don't forget to include your name, the name of the game, and a description of the scene. Large, colorful, UI-free shots that tell a story and really show off the game make for the best images. Look ma, we brought back One Shots!
