Huh...I'm going to let you in a little secret now, okay?
Just between you and me.
Are you ready?
Here it is.
I don't have a lot of faith in the intelligence of others.
I know. I'll give you a second to contain your shock.
As you may have been able to figure out, I basically see human beings as two types of people:
1) complete morons
You really can't blame me though. Given the number of times I've had to deal with idiots, you're lucky I'm as nice as I am.
Think about that.
Now, I've told you before that you can often tell when something bad is going to happen.
It's like a sixth sense.
The leader of your party suggests something and your first thought is "Oh damn. We are so dead."
And you're usually right.
A few nights ago, a party leader made an interesting (read: functionally retarded) suggestion.
He wanted me to tank.
As a DRG.
Yes, a DRG.
For those of you who don't play this game, this would be like asking a butcher to fix your car for you.
But I decided to give it a shot. I was extremely bored and figured it might be good for a laugh.
Also, I needed something to write about.
The things I do for you, oh loyal reader.
So, we gather in Mount Zhayolm and the leader points at a Magmatic Eruca. A Magmatic Eruca that spits fire and can wipe half your HP in a good shot.
At least I won't be in the party long.
So, we get to work and my finger is literally hovering over the summon Jormy button. The second I die, that leader gets an important lesson on proper party formation.
Also, dragon digestive tracts.
So, the first fight ends. And I'm alive.
I actually had to look at the screen and figure out if I was perhaps hallucinating.
But, no. There I was, burnt and battered, but no worse for the damage.
Must have been lucky.
So, we fight another.
Before I know it, three hours have gone by and I haven't died once.
We actually made a fairly decent amount of exp.
I don't think I can explain how life changing that moment was for me. I had gone into it assuming the worst of the leader and expecting to die. It wasn't even a question in my mind.
And I had been ready to feed him to Jormy and ban him.
Shame on me.
I learned a valuable lesson about trusting others and that not everyone I meet will turn out to be a total fu...
I made Jormy eat him twice.
