Hello Hello, TAY!

How is everyone?

I’ve been playing Dragon Quest VII lately, as I mentioned last week. And it’s been so very good. I keep finding stupid things to talk about with that game. The other day, I found DQVII’s Trent Reznor at a dingy bar, scheming his latest scheme to rescue a High Priestess. Exciting stuff. Almost as solid as his music. Almost.


But I’m here to talk about my one, major JRPG rule: Plunder Prior to Prattling

Yes. When I enter NPCs’ abodes, I steal from them before they have time to invite me to whatever contents are hiding in their storerooms. I smash their barrels and their clay pots. I take their precious medicinal herbs, which they could probably use more than I, given the state of their home towns. I robbed my drunk Uncle of his (presumably dirty) boxer shorts. Forget that guy. Forget all those guys.

And then I talk to them like nothing ever happened.

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s):

  • Do you speak to NPCs before ransacking their houses? Or do you take, then speak?
  • Decide my next DQ vocation, TAY!: Troubadour, Dancer, Thief,Jester, or Shepherd. Right now, I’m one of those good looking Mage things and struggling with a priest and martial artist in my party.
  • What’s your favorite job class to play in games? Healer, Fighter, etc...?
  • It’s Autumn, hooray! Apparently I’ve yet to be super basic (I haven’t had a PSL). But I’m basic at my pizza knowledge. Someone around here might tell you stories about Digornio. They may or may not be true. In the meanwhile, take this quiz and reveal your knowledge of pizza. I know you all think you’re pizza enthusiasts. It’s the great test of 2016, TAY. I mean, I don’t actually know if these things I’ve read on the internet are true but whatevs. Just take the quiz!

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain’t nobody got time for stealing all the pizzas and asking questions never! Don’t forget that the Discord Chatroom is always around too for continuing, real-time conversations. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout to tell them you love them and appreciate their internet availability: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.


Sing it again, Eustace
