Welcome To RandomOkay, I don't even know how to preface this update.
Usually, I throw in a long piece about how such and such a thing is annoying/emo/stupid and how people should be suspended/banned/murdered.
I then go on to relate a recent example that relates to that thing.
But today, I had the most random GM call ever.
GM Call Description: Event problem. Player harassment.
See, now this seemed like my average GM call.
"Boo hoo, someone iz botherin mee."
And I don't really see how someone could be harassed because of the event. I mean, it's just some running around and goldfish scooping.
It looked like some dragon-related violence and a deluxe package were in order.
I logged in all ready to go. Had my dragon macro warmed up and everything.
That's when my brain got broked.
[GM]Dave>> Hail, Adventurer.
[GM]Dave>> You seem to be having a problem with the event.
Player>> Other players are harassing me.
[GM]Dave>> Are they interfering with your event quest?
Player>> No, nothing like that.
[GM]Dave>> Are they verbally harassing you?
[GM]Dave>> I could check the logs.
Player>> Not exactly.
[GM]Dave>> Can I buy a freakin' vowel or something?
[GM]Dave>> I have no idea what you want.
Player>> Other players are bothering me non-stop.
Player>> It's making it hard to play.
[GM]Dave>> Just blist the players and move on.
[GM]Dave>> Christ, don't you people read the manual?
Player>> It's not that simple.
Player>> It's always different people.
[GM]Dave>> Why the hell are different people harassing you?
[GM]Dave>> Are you playing a Mithra?
[GM]Dave>> That shit is pretty standard.
Player>> No, I'm a Taru.
[GM]Dave>> What does this have to do with the event?
Player>> That's how they're harassing me.
Player>> They keep trying to scoop me.
[GM]Dave>> I'm sorry. What?
Player>> People keep coming up to me doing a scoop emote.
Player>> Then they say "Mystery box! Mystery box!"
Player>> I had to log in on my mule just to send the GM call.
[GM]Dave>> Why in the hell are they doing that?
Player>> My main character's name is Goldfish...
[GM]Dave>> I need to go lie down now.
What in the hell am I supposed to do there?
I decided that the best place to find an answer is at the bottom of a bottle of Jack Daniel's.
Apparently, the answer is drunk.
