One Shots takes us from the intimidating to the lighthearted, thanks to Massively reader Xarrin:
Dynasty Warriors Online has an intriguing feature. While fighting on a battlefield vs. other players, neutral NPCs will occasionally pop up and challenge all of the combatants. Whoever can defeat this roaming vagabond will obtain his or her services as a skilled warrior fighting alongside you.Send a pic of the funniest, most strangely designed, or scariest enemy you've taken on in an MMO to email@example.com along with your name and the name of the game. Tell us a little about the foe and we'll share it here on One Shots!
This gentleman, later named Pinkbeard, was by far the most interesting random-generated NPC in the game. With the appearance of an old man, voice of a 10-year-old, and namesake beard, he continues to frighten and confuse my opponents in matches.
Next week on One Shots is guild week. It's time to show off your best group shot of you and your guildmates. Whether you're hanging out, enjoying guild housing, taking out a huge enemy, or throwing a party, grab a screenshot, send it in, and tell us about your guild!
