One Shots: Looking forward to a rainy day

Is there anything as excruciatingly tempting as receiving a gift meant for a very specific situation? You can’t wait to use it, but it won’t make sense until something happens. Something… like a rainy day.

But next time it pours, RimaHadley is ready: “FFXIV ran a Tactical ogre reborn Screenshot contest and I just received notification that my entry was one of the winners and I won this fancy Great Serpent of Ronka themed umbrella!”


Maybe Rima needs to take this umbrella to IronSalamander8 who is having a devilish time during the apocalypse.

“Here’s a very horror film-like shot 7 days to die with the storm clouds over the old church.”


“It was a week of fighting dragons Guild Wars 2 for me,” Katriana posted. “First we fought Zhaitan with MJ on stream on Tuesday. The next night I fought Kralkatorrik with some friends.”

All were dragon fights! These lizards were lightning fast!


Scott sent us this amusing portrait Swords of Legends Online.

“An amusing quirk of the game is that when you zoom in pretty close, which happens in some of the quest cutscenes, your character will turn around and look straight at the camera. This occasionally makes for an amusing little “fourth wall break” when the conversation ends in the cutscene and your character turns to you and seemingly says, “Really? Is this lady serious? I have to kill EIGHT MORE weasel people? Fine… but you’ll buy me dinner at the Cash Shop later.”


And Scott’s evil twin, Scot (missing the extra T but making up for it with an evil goatee) sent in an action-packed FFXIV image and said, “The girlfriend went through it Stormblood, so she called me to the Fringes to help me fight for an A rank with her level 70 Gunslinger and my level 90 Red Mage. It was a long fight but we managed to bring him down and I thought I’d commemorate him by gposing. It turns out that our recent actions worked surprisingly well together in so many small ways!”


Whether you’re huddled in a basement as the zombies approach, or waiting for a rainy day to flower your award-winning umbrella, there’s no time like the present to bring your latest MMO pics and stories to the comments to share!
