A Terrible Discovery
You think you know somebody. You spend so much time together, you get burned to death together...
You're supposed to be friends.
And then you learn something so terrible about that other person that it makes you change your outlook on them.
I didn't have that high an opinion of Shaman to begin with. I mean, he's gotten me killed more time than I can count and a few of those were at his own hand.
Really not ranking high in my list of people.
But something that happened today destroyed any respect I may actually have had for the guy.
I was having some fun crafting, when I get a tell from Shaman. Seems he was getting an exp party together and wanted me to join.
Now, I hadn't been exping in a while, with my new baby chocobo and all, so I decided to go along.
I run over to Yhoator Jungle to meet up with him, but when I get there, I notice something.
Shaman was decked out. His gear was top of the line and a lot of it looked brand new.
No blood or nothing.
GoblinSmithy>> Hey, Shaman.
GoblinShaman>> Heya, Smithy.
GoblinSmithy>> Man, where'd you get the nice new gear?
GoblinSmithy>> That shit is nice.
GoblinShaman>> Like that, do you?
GoblinShaman>> Yeah, I figured it was time to upgrade.
GoblinSmithy>> That stuff looks expensive.
GoblinShaman>> Not really.
GoblinShaman>> It was actually pretty cheap.
GoblinSmithy>> Are you kidding?
GoblinSmithy>> You've got a Morion Tathlum.
GoblinSmithy>> Two Morion Earrings.
GoblinSmithy>> And everything you have is +1.
GoblinSmithy>> That must have cost millions.
GoblinShaman>> It's not a big deal.
GoblinShaman>> I've been saving.
GoblinSmithy>> Saving what?
GoblinSmithy>> You don't do anything besides get me killed.
GoblinShaman>> I ran a bunch of BCNMs and made a lot of gil.
GoblinShaman>> I don't know.
GoblinShaman>> Last week or something.
GoblinSmithy>> There's no way you made that much gil.
GoblinSmithy>> Where'd it come from?
GoblinSmithy>> Did you kidnap a Taru or something?
GoblinShaman>> Not exactly.
GoblinSmithy>> Well, it's gotta be something.
GoblinSmithy>> This just isn't making sense.
GoblinShaman>> I bought gil online.
GoblinShaman>> ARE YOU HAPPY?!
GoblinSmithy>> You... What?
GoblinSmithy>> You must be joking.
GoblinShaman>> It's not that big a deal.
GoblinSmithy>> Oh Altana. I think you touched me.
GoblinSmithy>> I need some boiling water and disinfectant.
GoblinShaman>> What are you doing?
GoblinSmithy>> Stupidity that big has to be contagious.
GoblinSmithy>> I don't want to catch stupid.
GoblinShaman>> Oh, shut up.
GoblinShaman>> Everyone does it.
GoblinSmithy>> I don't.
GoblinSmithy>> I make my money the old fashioned way...
GoblinSmithy>> Killing people.
GoblinShaman>> Would you calm down?
GoblinSmithy>> I mean, killing people is mean...
GoblinSmithy>> But that's just plain disgusting.
GoblinShaman>> Can we just get this party going, please?
GoblinSmithy>> I've got a better idea.
GoblinSmithy>> How about I point and laugh at you for being retarded?
GoblinShaman starts casting Fire III on GoblinSmithy.
GoblinSmithy>> So, is that a no then?
I still haven't talked to him since. I mean, what would cause someone to be so monumentally idiotic that they would spend real money to buy fake money?
I expected better from Shaman. Pathfinder, maybe, but definitely didn't expect this from Shaman.
Only adventurers are dumb enough to do something like this.
