Reader Chris could have had a lifelong companion but chose to go the Luke route in Star Wars: The Old Republic. "I let a Sith escape Belsavis in order to save the injured fighter pilot Conrad Gall from an 'ancient beast' -- a rancor, as it turns out. It was a close fight, as you can tell by where my Trooper finally took it down."
Hats off to the brave rancor, whose only crime was being born a big, fat, sharp-toothed freak. Stop the bullying, I say!
"Running through the story instances starts to get grim the closer I get to 50," reader GeekyBarista said. "Took a moment before this beautiful area was destroyed by The Strain to take in the beauty that the Eldan are able to create. The Strain has me seeing purple everywhere I go, but this reminded me of some beautiful plains where you can find some peace and quiet."
"My utmost creation, the childish cube!" Amilton crowed. "Time to face its wrath!"
I... have nothing to add here. Very pretty picture indeed. Also, I want to buy some of whatever is magically holding up those multi-ton rocks because flying cars need to be a reality within my lifetime.
