A Knife In The Back

So, given the amount of playtime I get between work and home, I've been leveling several characters over the past few years.

One of those characters has been getting extremely close to finishing off his relic dagger, the Mandau.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Mandau, all you really need to know is that it is awesomeness forged into a knife. This is the kind of knife Chuck Norris would use.

Yes. I went there.

Anyway, I've been getting extremely close to this goal and I was getting very hyped up. I was really looking forward to being the first of my friends to finish off my relic weapon.

Most of them didn't even know how close I was. I just wanted to surprise them all.

This was going to be sweet.

Man, they are going to freak out when they see me with that dagger. I'll just pop into my LSes and say something like...

Arzo>> (( Mandau )): O

Yeah. Something cool and simple like that.

Something really...

...

Wait a second...

My name isn't Arzo.

Arzo>> I finally finished my relic dagger!!!

But he...

I...

I was supposed to be first.

[GM]Dave>> Congratulations.

See? [GM]Dave isn't all bad.

I'm not a sore loser.

Arzo>> Holy crap!
Arzo>> I just did a 2483 Mercy Stroke to a spider.
[GM]Dave>> Yeah.
[GM]Dave>> That's nice.

Really, I'm not a sore loser at all.

Arzo>> Aquarius -> (( Found it! ))
[GM]Dave>> Are you freakin' kidding me?

I'm not a sore loser.

I'm not a sore loser.

I'm not a sore loser.

Arzo>> Woot!
Arzo>> Got the drop!

Not a sore loser.

Not a...

Oh, who the hell am I kidding?

[GM]Dave>> Wow, Arzo. This is a big event.
Arzo>> I know.
Arzo>> I've been working on it for two years.
[GM]Dave>> You should do something special.
Arzo>> Like what?
[GM]Dave>> You should get that dagger bronzed.
Arzo>> Haha, that's...
Arzo>> WHERE'D MY MANDAU GO?!

Arzo obtained a Bronze Dagger.

Arzo>> My...
Arzo>> I...
[GM]Dave>> Yeah.
[GM]Dave>> You're welcome.

Your tell could not be received. The other play is either changing areas or has just logged off and is weeping as he contemplates the two years he just wasted. He is also contemplating cutting his wrists with a knife.

Irony much?

[GM]Dave does not handle adversity well.

holla!

As good as the Mandau is, I'd be wary of its Poison proc. There are just too many instances to me where it would be a double-edged weapon.

Still, it's the best dagger in the game, and it looks flippin' sweet to boot.

Congratulations.

Sounds like a great weapon.

But what you did was plain rude, Dave. Couldn't you have given him an onion knife? because even bronze is too good for him.

This doesn't make any sense. How could you not know someone in your LS is so close to a stage 5 relic. Attestation and fragment won't appear out of nowhere.

I have felt the same was as you did in this story [GM]Dave.
I got over it though. If I didn't, I would have ulcers and maybe a homicidal crime on my record. >>
Just kidding. I am a nice guy, really.

\(^_^)/ what we all wish we could do

 
At 8:03 PM, Blogger Kittos said...

O_O *is on phoenix server*

 
At 5:46 AM, Blogger Franck Knight said...

Yeah, he's on Phoenix, but incognito ;)

But as a GM he can ban people on any server, so don't think he's only cleaning up one server from the filth :D

As a player thought, I know where he's hiding... which is why I don't talk to him in case of retaliation XD

Tokenblackguy, this is a warning. Go back to GameFAQs, and never reply to this blog again, or I will hurt you.


Dave, I think that was a little mean. You should've just shown him how rusty that dagger would be in a few years!

Lolfeba. TBG > You.

[GM]Dave, excellent, as always! Glad to have you back, buddy :)

Yay Phoenix, we have all the cool people.




I'm looking at you, Lakshmi.

 
At 8:38 AM, Blogger FighterMcWarrior said...

Arzo is on my server, I used to be good friends with him. That being said, I'd be amused if that happened.

 
At 5:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You handled that much better than I would (could) have... My only hope is that this Puke was at least 70+, and had plenty to lose...

Feeding someone to Jormy, for throwing a 3 million gil item and calling a GM, I can understand. Torturing someone who criticeized your girlfriend's refreshing, that's cool. Messing with someone's relic is not. Seriously. I thank God every night you don't know my character's name on FF.

 
At 6:51 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Finally, I can post. This blog has convinced me to buy FFXI just to witness firsthand not only the cool things going on, but also how STUPID some people can actually get. Don't worry Dave, if I ever make a stupid GM call(which I hope will be....never.) I will personally ask you to feed me to Jormy then delete my character, for it would be corrupted with my stupidity.

I'm new to your blogs... and I enjoy them thus far...

But... If I pointed out a typo... would you kill me?

I won't tell you where it is... It's more evil that way... You respect that right?
