It seems some people want to challenge me without me using my GM powers.
That sounds really stupid. Why would I fight anyone without using my GM powers?
That's why I have them.
You don't see a professional boxer saying "Hey, it'd be fun to try fighting without using my hands."
No. They just punch people in the face.
I used to enjoy Ballista. Nothing like logging in and killing all the people I hate (read: everyone).
And they show up for it. Hell, they rush right on out for it.
That's incredibly convenient. It saves me so much time as now I don't have to chase them down before I murder them in the face.
However, you'll notice I said I USED to like Ballista.
I showed up one fine morning and noticed another Dragoon by the name of "Psylex" on the opposite team.
We stick together. We're like a family.
Plus, I really hate watching wyverns die.
It doesn't make me cry, I swear.
Then something weird happened.
This guy respectfully requested a one on one with me.
How do you respectfully request a fight like that?
"Please, sir. Could you be so kind as to kick my ass?"
Still, I agreed since he seemed like a semi-intelligent person.
We head off to a secluded spot where we won't be interrupted by retards actually trying to score petras.
People who play by keeping score make me sick.
Anyway, we /bow, draw our weapons, and commence.
3 seconds later I'm in the dirt.
Psylex>> You should try getting some more practice in. You were kinda slow with the macros there.
I get up, re-summon my wyvern and head back over to make him pay.
Oh, how he would pay. I was already imagining the terrible things I was going to make Jormy do to him after the match.
I'm kidding. I am a good sport about losing as long as I'm not the one doing it.
He would have to pay...
Round 2: This time I last 8 seconds.
I think because his High Jump timer wasn't up yet.
Psylex>> Not bad, man. Go again?
Round 3 doesn't go any better.
Nor do rounds 4 through 7.
Time to bring out the big guns. And by "the big guns", I mean my big purple dragon. And by "bring out", I mean feed.
As I drag over Susan's computer and log onto my GM character I get hit by an idea. Why bring out another dragon when there is already one flying over his head?
Yes, my brilliance amazes even me sometimes.
Psylex>> Hey, no hard feelings, right?
Psylex>> Yeah, Nanaja and I make a good team.
[GM]Dave>> Are you a fan of irony?
Psylex>> What do you mean?
Nanaja hits Psylex for 10,946 points of damage.
Psylex was defeated by Nanaja.
[GM]Dave>> Now you really ARE one entity. Enjoy being digested.
[GM]Dave>> We should do this again sometime.
Screw family. The winner of any fight is the one who doesn't get eaten.
