[GM]Dave Wants Your OpinionYes, you read that right. I'm looking for your opinion on this one.
No, no. I don't want your opinions about WoW, Twilight, or whatever other thing you're just waiting to give me your thoughts on.
Actually, it's about theme week.
As several of you have e-mailed to point out, it's time for another fan pack. It's been about a month since the last one and people seem to be getting a little anxious about getting them.
I waited a little longer this time because I don't want people getting sick of them.
Now, as a lead up to the fan pack, I was going to do a theme week as chosen by last month's highest donator. We spent a fair amount of time discussing various topics, but she just couldn't make up her mind.
She decided that the best way to handle this situation would be to put the choice to you.
This is called the "pussying out" method.
I kid, I kid.
Her two choices were between:
a) Turnabout is fair play
I would have to start a new character in FFXI with absolutely no help from any of my in-game friends. They're not even allowed to know it's me.
I... I can't even use my GM powers.
The idea is to review FFXI from a new player's perspective as I reviewed WoW. By removing as many of the biases as possible, could it put my WoW experience in a new light?
Note: I will still be taking names of players who aggravate me and, when the week is over, I will deal out retroactive vengeance.
b) The worst things I have ever done
This would basically be seven days of the worst, most terrible things I have ever done either in-game or out.
From my precocious childhood to the guy I punched in the face for trying to sell me a Used copy of a game that cost $5 new, which of my terrible deeds would rank among the worst?
There are so many. It's hard to choose just seven.
So, basically, the comments section of this post will act as a simple poll. 24 hours from now, I will read the comments and the theme for this week will be chosen be popular demand.
And, as usual, anyone who donates $5 or more to help support the blog will become an instant member of the official [GM]Dave fan club (applause here). One week (-ish) from today, a brand new fan pack will be sent to all members of this very exclusive club.
Membership also includes your choice of novelty hat when the revolution comes and my plans for world domination come to fruition.
Do you really want to be the only one without a hat? Do you really?
I should point out that anyone without the aforementioned hat will be busy toiling in the spice mines.
All proceeds go towards the care and feeding of the biological weapons installation that my wife and several blood tests confirm is my child.
The person who donates the most will be given the opportunity to participate in the blog in a way of their choosing including (but not limited to) story ideas, writing your own post, telling me how much I suck, having someone killed, or giving a counterpoint to one of my reviews.
Note: All counterpoints are the opinion of the person writing them and, in the case that they disagree with the opinion of [GM]Dave, are patently wrong.
You even get to pick your very own theme for an entire week's worth of posts.
Or... You get to let everyone else pick your very own theme for an entire week's worth of posts.
I'm very open to the opinions of others.
Note: [GM]Dave is not open to the opinions of others.
How could you ask for anything more?
Remember, if you act now, you'll be done faster than if you acted later!
What are you waiting for?
... Seriously. What are you waiting for?
Now, as I told my wife on our wedding night, "LET THE POLLING BEGIN!"
Yeah, she didn't find it funny either.
