Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays Reindeers and Snowflakes! We are coming up on a week of Festive Holiday posts in the 12 Days of Christmas: Gamer’s Edition event hosted by Kim over at Later Levels! A quick update, Kim was lovely enough to give us a few days off from the collaboration post so that we can enjoy time with family and friends. With that said, this will be the last post until Wednesday, December 27th! Take this time to enjoy each other and if you need to catch up on our first 5 posts, the links will be posted below. Don’t forget about the other Reindeers taking part in the festive fun! I will include a few of their links in the remaining posts as well. Head on over to the Workshop at Later Levels for official rules if you would like to participate!
Today’s Topic is…..
You’re woken from your drunken haze by another frantic call from Santa, who’s worried he’s not going to make all his deliveries in time. Which video game item or vehicle would you recommend for him?
Awesome! We’re helping Santa deliver the presents. I meannnn I have already posted on a great character that can assist Santa and even do a better job than Santa on December’s Question of the Month. Check out the video game character that could step in and take Santa’s place if her were ever abducted or missing!
So I have been playing Final Fantasy XIV Online lately and the game is very fun. In most MMO and RPG games, there is a teleportation system of some sort. In FFXIV, you teleport by Aether Stones placed in every region of the game.
- Santa can quickly evaporate and reappear in a designated area of the world within an instant!
- Aether Stones are not free. You have to pay gil (in game currency) to travel and depending on your location, you may be spending 500+ gil to teleport each time.
- You can only teleport to Aether Stones that you have already attuned. Which means you would have had to visit the area that you are traveling to. This can be difficult as new residential areas are being developed/.
- Has anyone really done the research on these Aether Stones? I would be afraid that too much teleporting would burn out my brain cells or something. That can’t be good for their bone density? Just Saying!
Sooo that was my cheeky answer but not my real response. While the use of Aether Stones would be easy, it can start racking up like taking a toll roll. Santa would have to start charging premiums for areas that are farther from the North Pole. I mean the man works on COOKIES! There’s no way that Santa can pay the travel cost and I’m sure that the whole “Ho, Ho, Ho I’m Santa Claus” thing can only get him free travel so many times. “Merry Christmas to you too St. Nick… that’ll be 234 gil please!”
My response has more holes in it than swiss cheese, but it’s funny so why not? I would recommend that Santa uses DeRagen ( a boss dragon from Phantasy Star Universe) or the Dragon from Skyrim to help make his deliveries! Think about it, a dragon is an excellent means of transportation AND they’re super long so they will have plenty of space to hold the presents. I figure the dragon’s scales can be rigged up like a pirate ship, with rope ties so that Santa can drop the presents in the Chimney. Also, I figure not many children these days are getting great gifts so Santa will have an UNLIMITED supply of COAL! He can throw branches for the dragons to burn and the resulting charcoal will fall in the place of the gifts. It’s full proof!
**No Dragons were harmed in the making of this post!**
