That Sneaky Blizzard

“The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.”
William Shakespeare

That Sneaky Blizzard

It is the day of the Prom. The Student Council voted for Ska Night and you’ve been practicing your hyper-reggae dance moves for weeks. You’ve done your sit-ups to look good in your tux. Your date is Trixie Belden, the cutest girl in school since the sixth grade. It is going to be great.

But, when you get to the Prom, the teachers announce a change. It is going to be Doo-Wop night. One Doo-Wop song is great, the second sounds like the first, the third is a bit boring and you start resenting the cocky tenor.

Very last minute changes to the Nethershard Crucible were announced:
“We’ve made a final tuning pass on the Netherlight Crucible to ensure that its powers behave more like the trinkets that you know and love.”

Trinkets? What trinkets? I know, they are “like” trinket spells but no one wants to say that out loud, its embarrassing. And doesn’t “you know and love” sound sarcastic? — who writes this stuff?

Mainly the mantra of “take the stats” has been dismantled.

  • Master of Shadows – Value reduced to 500.
  • Murderous Intent – Value reduced to 1500.
  • Light Speed – Value reduced to 500.
  • Shocklight – Value reduced to 1500.

The other stuff is now blessed by your haste or crit values.

Like Tripper says in Meatballs, “It just doesn’t matter.” Take whatever you want, click a choice and move on.

Sneaky, sneaky.
