Yes, they're letting you raise chocobos.

I get it.

But for Altana's sake, they're only chocobos. You can get a chocobo in every town and at any crag.

Noone in the history of Vana'diel has ever said "Wow, it's totally impossible to get a chocobo."

Honestly, it's not exactly a big damned deal that they're giving you chocobos.


Today, I was on duty in Yhoator Jungle and I was getting bored.

All of the pullers were being extra careful and noone had run near me in quite a while.

Funny, isn't it? Days I want to be left alone, I'm swarmed with morons. Days when I get bored, it's suddenly "Don't bother Smithy" day.

Damned adventurers, making me stab them.

It's not my fault really.

Anyway, I get kind of bored just standing around, so I decide to walk around a bit and hang out near a few prime camp sites.

There was a party just inside the tunnel near the zone.

A few steps closer...

And a few more...

Then their Bard stepped back into my range.

And it was SMITHY TIME!

GoblinSmithy>> HAHA!
GoblinSmithy>> DIE, ROCKSTAR!
Paladin>> Do you think it'll be hard to raise them?
WhiteMage>> I don't know.
WhiteMage>> Probably.
GoblinSmithy>> Hello?
Paladin>> I want a black one.
Dragoon>> That would be cool.
GoblinSmithy>> Hello?
GoblinSmithy>> Killing your Bard here.
Dragoon>> Do you think they'll have Blue Chocobos?
Paladin>> I think so.
WhiteMage>> I think I read that somewhere.
GoblinSmithy>> Pay attention!
Bard>> I heard you can get red ones, too.
GoblinSmithy>> Oh, don't you start.
GoblinSmithy>> Just freakin' die.
WhiteMage>> I hope you can call them.
Dragoon>> Maybe we'll have a choco-flute or something.
WhiteMage>> That's not a bad idea.
GoblinSmithy>> You know who has a flute?
GoblinSmithy>> YOUR DEAD BARD!
Paladin>> I hope the rare ones aren't hard to get.
GoblinSmithy>> PAY ATTENTION!
Paladin>> When's the update?

I was really pissed off at this point, so I did something every party member dreads.

That's right.

I beat that White Mage like he was rented.

GoblinSmithy>> DAMN!
GoblinSmithy>> You went down like a prom date!
WhiteMage>> Do you think they'll have special abilities?
GoblinSmithy>> OH COME ON!

I massacred their entire party and the whole time, they stood around talking about big, stupid, yellow birds.


Seriously. What the hell is wrong with you people?

They announced chocobos. Big freakin' deal.

It's not like they're giving Mithra a third boob or something.

Now, that would be news.

Damn, I hate chocobos.

Hey ass, in case you didnt know it, Mazurka is barely 1/4 the speed of a Chocobo.

Seconding your vote for giving Mithra a third boob~!

Flee is the only skill that gives you the same speed as a chocobo... And smithy, you do know that those oversized chickens will put you out of a job, right? One minute your ramming a sword in somebody's spine, the next he calls his chicken and runs off!

I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything while reading this, or it would have been all over my screen. Awesome.

Why would you give mithras a third boob... That would just be scary. Whiskers, yes, maybe, but not a third... that. Christ, first off, think of the graphical issue. You have to redo all the armor for them, then you have to remodel a high res model for the character selection... then finally, redo all the cg movies (the, what?, three they have?). I, personally, would not like this. It'd be disturbing... I really don't need to walk around Windurst without being reminded of Total Recall. If any changes need to be made, it's the horrific idle standing stance for Elvaan females... it looks like their backs are broken and are permanently bow-legged. Give them some class for Altana's sake!

As far as the chocobo thing goes, yeah, it's awesome, but anyone who goes on and on about the new quest/system should be shot in the face, followed by the forced ingestion of a goblin bomb, while fighting a Grenade right before a detonation... in Rusty Subligar.

On a side note, has Rusty Subligar given anyone else a rash?

I dunno, Sakura... somehow the Goblin in that drawing looks a little too much "Cute kitty with a bloody knife".

Smithy's funny, Smithy's quick-witted, but cute? Eh...

I do believe the doctor in Jeuno is giving out free Tetanus shots.

Mithra third boob would be nice :) Something extra for you to stab.

Oh great, now there will be adventurers all proudly carrying on about their pink and purple polka-dot chocobo that passes gold nuggets they can sell at the auction house and will any of us mules get anything out of this?

Damn those people are slow.

You heard it from me like two and a half months ago..

I think I'd have to object to having a 3rd boob...I mean, the two that I have are nice, yeah, but a third would just get in the way.

And what about necklaces, where would they fall? Right now, my necklaces fall neatly in between my two breasts...a third boob would make me all unsymetrical and stuff...

Third boob? ((Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to pass.))
