Dynamis - Attempt 3

I have never claimed to be a fast learner.

No, no. But even I had thought I was smart enough to stay away from the flesh melting hell that is Dynamis.

Horribly burn and disfigure me once (or twice. stupid Pathfinder), shame on you. Horribly burn and disfigure me three times, shame on me.

Apparently, I'm a slower learner than I thought.

So, I head into Dynamis and, immediately, I run for my life. Even if I am a slow learner, I'm not stupid.

Hiding = No Burning

No Burning = Yay!

I was running full speed, looking for a place to hide. Unfortunately, Dynamis is so freakin' dark that I couldn't even see where I was going.

And my mask wasn't exactly helping the situation.

Finally, I see a little space around a wall to hide in. I look around everywhere for adventurers and then duck behind the wall...

And run face first into Shaman.

VanguardShaman>> Smithy!
VanguardShaman>> I almost lit you up.
VanguardSmithy>> Yeah.
VanguardSmithy>> Cause that's never happened to me before.
VanguardShaman>> Oh. Right.
VanguardSmithy>> Shut up.
VanguardShaman>> The scars are looking much...
VanguardSmithy>> SHUT UP!
VanguardSmithy>> This could be worse, you know.
VanguardSmithy>> Pathfinder could be here.

The second I said it, I knew it was a mistake.

Just as the words left my mouth, Pathfinder came around the corner.

VanguardPathfinder>> Hey! Shaman! And Smitty!
VanguardSmithy>> Die in a fire.
VanguardPathfinder>> What?
VanguardShaman>> He said "Hi".
VanguardSmithy>> I said "DIE IN A FIRE!"
VanguardPathfinder>> Always kidding around, Smitty.
VanguardSmithy>> That's me. Always joking.
VanguardSmithy>> die in a fire, you stupid bastard.

Things were looking pretty good when, suddenly, we heard approaching footsteps and shouting.

I looked a Shaman and he looked back at me. We both nodded.

VanguardSmithy>> Hey, Pathfinder, old buddy.
VanguardSmithy>> Stick your head out and see who's out there.
VanguardPathfinder>> Okay.

Apparently, he is good for something...

BlackMage1 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.
BlackMage2 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.
BlackMage3 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.
BlackMage4 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.
BlackMage5 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.
BlackMage6 starts casting Firaga III on Vanguard Pathfinder.

... Like kindling.

VanguardSmithy>> Oh DAMN!
VanguardPathfinder>> Is that bad?
VanguardSmithy>> Shaman, he's toast!
VanguardSmithy>> RUN FOR IT!

We took off running. I mean, we took off like OJ Simpson.

After a quick sprint, Shaman and I stopped to catch our breath. By my count, Pathfinder should be doing a good impression of the Human Torch in about 4 seconds.

3 seconds.

2 seconds.

VanguardPathfinder>> Hey, guys... why are we running?

He didn't just say we, did he?

1 second.

VanguardSmithy>> Remind me to hurt you. A lot.

Damn, I hate Pathfinder.

Oh. And Firaga III. I
hate Firaga III.

Sorry things didn't go so well (at least for one of us). And say, do you want to borrow some cash? Nowadays you can't do much with 88g...

Oh, and by the way, I think Goblin Pathfinder must read your blog! I saw him there as well, but now he has a tiger pet! Much much cooler than the bee, if you ask me.

Taskmage,

He did indeed die in a fire, but I was hoping he would do so at some distance from me.

It is difficult to appreciate the irony when your skin is being turned into lava.

You should post these stories on an FFXI related site... like http://www.ffxiclopedia.org. There was a recent offer over there to create sub-domains for story tellers, maybe you should take them up on that >_>

Maybe when you're in Dynamis you should befriend some nice goblin summoner to give you Earthen Ward? Or maybe get a whm subjob and learn barfira or something. :(
