Oh, You're Going To Like This

So... We have a little problem.

This month's top donator has asked me to do an entire week of Jormy stories. Apparently, he is a big fan of the large, purple dragon and would like 7 straight stories related to said dragon.

This leaves me with a predicament. I did a theme week about Jormy about 9 months ago.

Now, I don't want to tell this guy too freaking bad and suggest a week about my favorite bacon recipes or something.

But I also don't want to do a theme week that is going to annoy the hell out of everyone else.

Decisions, decisions.

As usual, rather than doing any actual work, I'm going to put this decision off on you people. You will get to decide whether or not I go through with another Jormy theme week.

To sweeten the pot a little, the entire fan pack will be Jormy-related as well. Lots of Jormy. Jormypalooza.

Speaking of which, I'm trying very, very, VERY hard to stick to the four week schedule this time around, so the fan packs should be going out around next Wednesday.

I'm sure you all know the routine, but in case you're new, fan packs will be sent to anyone who has donated $5 or more since the last fan pack. Donating will automatically make you a remember of the Official [GM]Dave fan club. Fan club membership comes with a number of benefits including:

a) a fan pack of really gosh darn swell stories

b) mercy when I am finally named true and rightful ruler of this entire planet

Muwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

...

Too much?

The fan pack contains a variety of extra articles and stories (and whatever other stuff I decide to throw in).

Honestly, sometimes I have no idea what other stuff might go in there. If I suddenly decide to write a piece about the political undercurrents of the Cosby Show, I throw it in.

I'm weird like that.

I used to include wallpapers, but I got a cease and desist letter from the Photoshop people. Not because I was using Photoshop, but because I was using it so poorly.

"Crime against humanity" was the exact words they used.

Meh.

Also, in case you didn't actually read the beginning of this whole post, the top donator of the month gets to choose their very own theme for an entire week's worth of posts.

Wait! There's more!

Actually... There isn't more.

I was lying about the more.

Still, it's a very big honor. There are only about seven people in the entire world that I actually listen to and five of those are the voices in my head.

Those guys are so crazy.

So, in order to help me decide just write either "Yay Jormy!" or "Ugh, not Jormy again".

You can cast your vote about theme week either in the comments section or as a note on your donation.

I would like to assure you that both will be given equal value in my decision.

I would like to tell you that, but that would be lying.

Yes, yes. I'm evil.

We already knew that.

I propose a compromise;

The following said theme week posts must have the following elements;

1. Jormy
2. Bacon
3. ???
4. Jormy eating stupid people in bacon!!!

JORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is not possible to get too much Jormy. Only too little.

 
At 2:01 PM, Blogger RyRy said...

Yay Jormy!, And Yay Bacon!

 
At 2:13 PM, Blogger LuxNecronis said...

It's America's (and Japan's) truly favorite giant purple dragon. I have been going through Jormungand withdrawal for quite some time now, and require my fix.

To respond in an appropriate format...

YAY JORMY!!!

jormy is always welcome, but maybe not in excess. have him be the punch line to the week's events.

or heck, take him into campaign and eat every living thing that he comes across...

 
At 2:24 PM, Blogger Nick said...

Jormy of course. Never too much Jormy.

 
At 2:46 PM, Blogger Mark said...

I can never get enough Jormy.

 
At 3:19 PM, Blogger shallot said...

Ugh, not Jormy again.

*cringes under the weight of public opinion*

I like the idea of more Jormy ^_^

But I think if Jormy ate bacon with stupid people then the bacon might get downgraded >.<

Feeling better?? : )

 
At 4:59 PM, Blogger Leanne said...

JORMY!!!!

 
At 5:41 PM, Blogger Solar said...

Not Jormy stories. i've come to enjoy the none Jormy stories. They seem a little forced and or boring.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger Orion said...

Yay jormy!

 
At 5:55 PM, Blogger King of Solomon said...

No Jormy.

 
At 6:54 PM, Blogger Arathorn-Gilgamesh said...

I have to agree with Nkelly1968 on this. As a long time resident of Gilgamesh,nearly 6 years and counting, I would like nothing more than to see an asinine LS who can't play for themselves and has to resort to cheating to get anything done, wrapped in bacon croissants and served up to good old Jorm. More Jormy!

 
At 7:41 PM, Blogger Kahsha said...

JORMY with a side of bacon and Jack.

 
At 7:43 PM, Blogger Irving said...

Yay! Jormy! pl0x!

 
At 8:15 PM, Blogger kisune said...

Jormy! i've been having jormy withdrawals lately...a jormy theme week would fix that :D

 
At 8:43 PM, Blogger Carlos said...

Id love to see [GM]Jormy back in action doing some cleaning

 
At 8:45 PM, Blogger Jaszon said...

Jormy! Jormy! Jormy!

 
At 9:03 PM, Blogger skynes said...

Jormy! Jormy! Jormy!

I like the stupid people in bacon idea. OOO OOO! Or you eating bacon whilst feeding people to Jormy. After all, even he needs a lunch break :)

 
At 9:04 PM, Blogger Ulli said...

Instead of jormy, use his just as nasty cousin, tiamat. she has pms. =)

 
At 9:50 PM, Blogger ineedbettername said...

Yay Jormy!

 
At 10:07 PM, Blogger Jon said...

Jormy, David Hasselhoff and Chuck Norris on vacation in Denver.

 
At 11:05 PM, Blogger Fireball said...

I say do Jormy !

 
At 11:40 PM, Blogger Sarah said...

Jormy!

 
At 11:41 PM, Blogger Sarah said...

Jormy! He's my favorite part of the entire blog.. well, that, and being mean to the denizens of FFXI. But that's included.

 
At 1:30 AM, Blogger Kenny said...

A choice between Jormy and Bacon and people are choosing the dragon? WTF is wrong with you people! Bacon all the way!

 
At 2:04 AM, Blogger Erubadhriel said...

YAY JORMY

 
At 3:11 AM, Blogger Hulyen said...

Yay Jormy!

 
At 4:38 AM, Blogger Turbohampster said...

Jormy, more please.

 
At 4:38 AM, Blogger Yuuzuki said...

Yay Jormy!

Did he ever meet other Dragons (Wyverns and this stuff)? Does he have any friends besides you? Are you friends or pet+master? How did you get to know him? Does he enjoy his work (eating ppl)? Did he ate too many ppl once and got sick or so? Is Jormy a he?
I hope you can provide answers to all these questions :3

 
At 4:39 AM, Blogger David said...

Yay Jormy!

 
At 5:04 AM, Blogger Crazze said...

Was gonna say ugh, no more jormy, but I feel like if it had a format unlike something we've seen before (maybe something closer to what Yuuzuki suggested) I may enjoy it.

So used to the,
1. Stupid People do stupid things
2. Jormy eats them
3. ???
4. Profit
format and would like to see something new but still jormy related.

 
At 5:42 AM, Blogger Mike Ridley said...

Yay Jormy!

 
At 5:46 AM, Blogger Kalie said...

Yay Jormy!

<3 stories about him

 
At 6:04 AM, Blogger David said...

Ask Jormy how he feels with the coming of FFXIV. Will he be there? Will you miss him?

 
At 6:10 AM, Blogger The Ogre (aka, Matt) said...

I'm all for more Jormy

 
At 6:40 AM, Blogger Just me said...

YAY JORMY!

 
At 7:11 AM, Blogger David said...

I find myself in agreement with those who have suggested doing something new with the Jormy concept. While I've enjoyed many Jormy tales, lately they seem to be forced, rather than inspired. A Jormy week... Sure, why not? A Jormy week with seven cases of idiot ingestation? [Hmmm.] [Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to pass.]

P.S.-I'd have to imagine that swallowing that much stupidity would give even a dragon an ulcer.

 
At 7:52 AM, Blogger Bufuman said...

Dude, you realize Jormy is probably the biggest reason your blog is so popular, right? Back when you started out, every post you made ended with some idiot (and on some occasions multiple idiots) got their asses slaughtered by Barney's giant, murderous, badass cousin. And we LOVED it!

In short, a week of Jormy stories = unchecked awesome.

 
At 9:14 AM, Blogger J. Scarper said...

I vote for Jormy. Jormy never gets old, IMHO. Although...yeah, what's going to happen to him (or her?) once FFXIV comes out?

 
At 9:24 AM, Blogger Justin said...

How about Susan naked, riding Jormy fighting the starship enterprise?

 
At 9:30 AM, Blogger Justin said...

oh wait. that's been done to death hasn't it? How about mini-jormy's sicced on the unsuspecting masses in the form of those fafnir statues? what could be more humiliating than having your ass handed to you by a wild rabbit sized wyrm inside your own mog house?

 
At 9:35 AM, Blogger Autumn said...

Yay Jormy!

I second the addition of bacon as an optional element.

 
At 9:55 AM, Blogger jasonx254 said...

Jormeehh!! huzzah! This is why we come to read GM Dave for jormeh....no offense Dave but the other stuff was getting rather boring. We come here not for RL related stuff but events that happened in game and had a jormey related ending.

 
At 10:53 AM, Blogger Master said...

I do enjoy Jormy. I also enjoy hearing your first times running around in FFXI.

I will never get tired of hearing about your first trip into the Dunes.

Wouldn't mind some more past experiences in the world of FFXI.

 
At 12:06 PM, Blogger Sven said...

YES JORMY

 
At 1:05 PM, Blogger Amanda said...

how about a week off goblin smithy?

 
At 1:16 PM, Blogger Taylor-MadeAK said...

Yay Jormy!

 
At 3:04 PM, Blogger Mike Richardson said...

Jormy!!!

 
At 5:44 PM, Blogger Leut said...

I vote for favorite sexual positions for Jormy.

(you thought I was gonna say Susan....you can.....if you want)

 
At 7:20 PM, Blogger Daniel said...

New Jormy, but not Jormy eating stupid people. We want Jormy, not stupid people.
OR you could NOT do Jormy right now and just declare an official Jormy week that is celebrated once a year. Therefore, Jormy stories would not be overkill, and you could spend all year thinking of stories for that one awesome week of honoring the great purple dragon.

But no on the bacon. Your top donator needs to be more clever.

 
At 7:22 PM, Blogger Katherine said...

I'm all for it, can you eat one of my friends?

 
At 7:49 PM, Blogger George said...

Yay! Jormy!

 
At 7:59 PM, Blogger Shimannee said...

I actually registered to say this:

...

UGH, NOT JORMY!!!!!

 
At 8:28 PM, Blogger Kahsha said...

PATHFINDER!!!




I'm so awesome I get 2 votes!

 
At 9:31 PM, Blogger Kenny said...

@Daniel

How can you say no to Bacon! It's bacon!

 
At 5:38 AM, Blogger Yensil blogs again! said...

How about Jormy's favorite bacon recipes?
