Back to Business

Okay, that didn't happen.

It didn't.

Let's move on.

So, this morning I was doing my usual server maintenance (read: turning servers on and off at random), when I got a GM call from a player.

A player named Sefferoth.

GM Call Description: I'm too stupid to live. Feed me to a dragon.

Okay, so that's not exactly what it said. But with a name like that, he was practically asking for it.

Suddenly, I was struck by an idea, an epiphany. Suddenly, a marvelous, beautiful, terrible thing laid itself out before my mind.

Oh, this was going to be fun.

I did a quick server search, selected the appropriate players and warped them all to Mordion Gaol.

*warpaga*

And there they stood, a legion of morons with Sephiroth rip off names. A legion of players with a base IQ just above that of a cheese sandwich.

[GM]Dave>> Hello, Adventurers.
[GM]Dave>> Apparently, you 're all too stupid to come up with your own name.
[GM]Dave>> We're not sure if this is due to naturally low IQ
[GM]Dave>> Or being dropped as a child.
[GM]Dave>> Results are pending.
[GM]Dave>> Does anyone have any questions?
Seppiroth>> Why are we all here?

Jormungand hits Seppiroth for 9,693 points of damage.
Seppiroth was defeated by Jormungand.

[GM]Dave>> Any more questions?
[GM]Dave>> Anybody?
Sefirot>> You can't do this!

Jormungand hits Sefirot for 8,751 points of damage.
Sefirot was defeated by Jormungand.

[GM]Dave>> Anybody else?
Seppheroth>> That wasn't a question.

Jormungand hits Seppheroth for 9,226 points of damage.
Seppheroth was defeated by Jormungand.

[GM]Dave>> Neither was that.
[GM]Dave>> Any more questions?

*silence*

[GM]Dave>> Good.
[GM]Dave>> Alright, you are all about to take part in a new event.
[GM]Dave>> One of you has been given an "S" Egg item.
[GM]Dave>> You have also all been set to PvP.
[GM]Dave>> Whoever has the "S" Egg at the end, gets to keep their name.
[GM]Dave>> Everyone else gets their character deleted.

I wonder how stupid these people really are.

[GM]Dave>> Are there any questions?
Sseferroth>> So all we do is find the egg?

Jormungand hits Sseferroth for 9,148 points of damage.
Sseferroth was defeated by Jormungand.

[GM]Dave>> So... no questions, I assume.
[GM]Dave>> Good. Go.

After that, Mordion Gaol became complete anarchy. N00bs killing n00bs. Abbreviations and misspellings gave way to screams of pain.

I almost cried it was so beautiful.

I really should have given one of those idiots an "S" Egg.

So, I left them to their little event and warped to the next Mordion Gaol room.

[GM]Dave>> Hello, Adventurers.
[GM]Dave>> Apparently, you 're all too stupid to come up with your own name.
[GM]Dave>> Are there any questions?
Clowd>> Why are we all here?

Damn, I love this job some days.

I just had to create an account here to express my thanks. I'm so glad that I still get to read your posts every day. I love reading these... they make me hurt internally. It's also stress-relieving to know that someone else thinks these people (read: dragon bait) are idiots too. WB [GM]Dave :D

Glad to see you're back. I was worried when I read you might quit.

See thing is...if you stopped writing I may have to feed myself to a dragon and where would the fun be in that?

Gladdy my level of creativity is higher than trying to make various versions of a pre-existing name. Yeah, I was one of the folks fascinated by "Sephiroth", but, really, the dude got slap by a gang of folks, then by spike-hair, and the world countered his "OMGtehUBAR" "Meteor" spell. Besides, what's so fun with being a Sephiroth clone, anyhow? They all died, remember? Where's the fun in that?

And it's like a bad case of "generic name branding". *lol*

Love your blog Dave, funniest ffxi-related thing I've seen, well, ever!

Something strange on this one though - Sefirot is actually a word from Kabbalah, Judaic Mysticism.

Now, I wouldn't expect 95% of the ffxi-playing populace to have the intelligence to select a name like that, there's a small...tiny...er...microscopic chance that it wasn't an attempt at a copy.

PS - If this comment has earned me a feeding to a dragon, feel free - I'm leaving the game for the next 4-6 months at the end of April, ironically on my birthday.

- Valkyrian

(if he did pick Sefirot on purpose, I sympathise - I have to explain constantly how Valkyrian is a male word from Norse mythos...this is what I get for minoring in literature/mythology lol).
