As a girl touches a glowing orb, it shines so brightly she flinches away. Around her, a couple other young people look disappointed, but not the seer watching over them.
Seer: The orb has chosen you!
Girl: But I’m just a normal girl.
Seer: Only on the surface. According to the orb, you are unusually tall with good balance, and you will need this to unlock your powers.
Girl: How does that work?
Later outside, the girl is on tiptoe to pull down a tree branch so that the orb, resting on a pillow on her head, can eat the fruit off of it.
Girl: Master Orbie, have I leveled up yet?
Orb: You still need 100 experience points.
P.S. Our bills are paid by our wonderful patrons. Could you chip in?
Comments on The Grind
LOL … why do I think that those EX are going to be counted in berries?
Good one again, Bunny and Chris!
Return of the manipulating orb…
What’s next, the orb prophesying that the priestess will turn evil and doom them all, leading to her banishment just because they disagreed about pizza toppings ? Or will he conspire to make his OTP a reality ?
Hmm… a subversive twist on the chosen one .
These always make me laugh.
Grinding is such a pain, we need to abolish it as a concept for game design. Has someone here a suggestion as to how we can make this a reality?
