"While going through some old screenshots, I came across a few from Tabula Rasa," John shared. "It was taken in November of 2007 as Veracious Pearl was ready to do some fighting."
Sadly, that soldier never made it out of the war. That doesn't mean we've given up fighting, however! Knock down a few mobs in the name of Veracious Pearl today, and when you're done, you should check out the rest of today's One Shots troops.
Harper explains: "The Twelfth Night ball is an event on Landroval hosted by the Lonely Mountain Band. Harper Mousie was chosen to be the Jack of the ball. Such virtual worlds are made to be savored!"

As I approached, however, I was struck by this sight of the village from afar. Maybe it's the mountains in the background complementing the forest or the sight of the trees dotting the far-off landscape, but for some reason, this scene gave me reason to pause an otherwise hectic schedule of world-travel for delicious goods to just take in the moment.
"Naturally, upon arriving, I came to discover the Krait had decided to ruin my moment by attempting to overtake the village and kill its leader. I demonstrated my crossness toward them with a few blunderbuss shots to the face. I hope they didn't mind."
