One Shots: Woodland critters


TERA isn't quite two weeks old, but it's already offering up some spectacular views. Kromic on the Dragonfall server paused while riding on his mount to take this shot. He writes in,
While doing some exploring on my trusty steed in TERA, I found a great view of the capital city Velika.
His screenshot is just after the cut, along with three more images of woodland critters doing their duty to spice up our MMO scenery.

Akastace on EverQuest II's Antonia Bayle RP server (represent!) sent in this shot of her Fury -- that's one of the game's Druid classes. Yes, Akastace has shapeshifted into a tiger. Rawr!

Our next submission wouldn't be possible without the spot of lag that let RIFT player and Massively fan J3w3l ride her rhino underwater. "Beat that, sparkle pony," she chortles

RIFT by J3w3l
Today's final image, from Massively reader Khelf, is special for three reasons. First, it's a turtle, and turtles are my favorite. Second, it's from pioneering political sandbox A Tale in the Desert. And third, a player built this, someone "who either was really bored or finally snapped after yet another interminable mile of sand." See those trees by the head? Khelf's character is shorter than they are. That's how big this thing is!
