Sometimes we get absolutely beautiful and eye-catching pictures sent in that have sinister undertones that are only revealed through a story. Such is the case for the following by reader Roger, who says that this corridor of Final Fantasy XIV
is not a place that a sane person would want to be.
"The intrepid Elezen Bard named Edouard with a pathological aversion to pants and a merry band of misfits is tackling the daunting challenges of the Sunken Temple of Qarn. We're close to the inner sanctum where the Scales of Judgment await and beyond which lies the massive, intimidating, living statue known as the Adjudicator... but first, we have to get through this hallway that is filled with ghosts and alligators for some reason."
And... ghost alligators? MY GREATEST FEAR.
I've been getting so many examples of awesome sets of non-skimpy female armor that I'm going to have to reserve an entire One Shots week to it. In the meantime, here's but one submission from RIFT
sent in by eLdritch. If you're curious, the "L" in that name had an early growth spurt compared to his siblings.
"In Exhibit A, you can see my Harbinger Bethayne Everblight keeping watch over the fields of Stillmoor, making sure that it doesn't get taken over by Regulos' lackeys... again," said eLdritch.
"Although Age of Conan
is more famous for its impaled and decapitated corpses basking in glorious godrays, I found this super cute scene," reader Rade said. "It's in Zelata's cave in the Wild Lands, and being a powerful witch (she helped Conan escape once), she summoned a pet sun for her plants to grow in this dark place."
I swear that I saw "Zelata" and what appeared to be a treasure chest and thought that this was some sort of Legend of Zelda
easter egg. But it's just an organic garden. I will try to contain my disappointment and hunger.
I've asked this before, but it's been a while so I'm going to do it again. For this week's screenshot challenge, I'd love to see pictures of your in-game house (or, ahem, garrison) and a captivating tale of how you designed it.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!
