Last week, the unthinkable happened. Or at least the unprecedented. Yes, after a dozen or so columns under my belt for Choose My Adventure
, one of the "joke" choices finally won a poll. Either everyone thought that the paradise city was actually a thing in Ryzom
or the impassioned pleas in the comments the week before had done the trick.
For those of you under the misapprehension that this was, in fact, an actual thing, I apologize for the not particularly elaborate act of deception.
My question to myself, at this point, was what I actually had to do at this point. Did this mean that I had to search through every city in the game to find a paradise, only to discover at the end that paradise had metaphorically been at home the whole time? Was I already in
the paradise city, judging by the fact that some people would call the jungle a virtual paradise? The girls were
pretty, the grass was
green, and by almost any metric you cared to use, Corlede was as close to home as she was getting.
But no, I knew what I had to do. Something I had known since I started playing. I went home.
