Slideshow #6

I am deeply sorry for the 'mess' on this screenshot of Ragnarok Online, but it truly captures the chaos of the wedding. During a short period of time over the Holidays, there is a half-off wedding service officiated by Santa Claus himself. There is a catch however; the weddings are as short as a Las Vegas nuptual (with long lines to boot) and Santa summons a gaggle of monsters at the end of the ceremony for your guests to kill or be killed by. There was even a 1/16 chance of Santa summoning a boss monster, but thankfuly that did not happen at our ceremony.

Haloween 2003 in SWG. Location somewhere far from a NPC city on Corellia. This was one of over 20 Haloween parties that were held by the players on 1 server alone in SWG in 2003. This is what happends when you have a community in a game that was not all about kill, loot, repeat.

One of the saddest moments of my WoW experience. One of our guild members passed away unexpectedly after a year-long struggle with a real-life infection. She loved playing WoW, and was a joy to quest/raid with. We all knew her well, and a few of us knew her outside of the game too (which is how we learned of her death). Since she loved the game so much, we organized this in-game funeral/memorial for her. We each took turns saying a few words about her... recounting our good times together. After this ceremony, for about a week, we continued to have short "moments of silence" for her before raids would begin.

In this one free MMORPG called Fly for Fun [or flyff for short] I used to be picky about making my guild members sit in a circle for guild meetings. No matter how far from a main town we would go, and no matter how obscure the place was [this was on one of the desolate islands in the sky] someone would come by and go, "OMG a circle! i wanna join!" or "guild event? I join guild plz." My favorite was someone claiming that we invaded his island and now had to pay a fee.

This was taken during the AOL Cup event on Phantasy Star Online. Not wishing to waste advertisement opportunities for the event sponsor, Sega decided to throw in a room full of Delsabers spouting off AOL slogans and copyrights. I have not seen anything funnier on PSO since.
