I Have An Ogre Fetish
I recently resubscribed to Everquest 2 and decided to start a new character, an Ogre called Scarscream (that’s ‘Scar-scream’ not ‘Scars-cream‘… although either way works). He’s a Shadowknight although I intend to betray him to a Paladin but stay over at Freeport (any class can play on any faction on Nagafen) thus meaning I can bum around with old friends whilst feeling slightly ’special’. However, I was looking through my character selection screen when I noticed something…odd…
My first Ogre, the Vanilla Gorilla, Shadowknight of Darathar, now residing on Venekor until the upcoming server merge.
Clubosaurus. How he’d get his name? Hint: he likes to club people. Member of the Fat Asian Four guild on Nagafen.
Blane. Battle Cleric. Holy as hell and popular with the ladies.
Mantooth, the Legendary Berserker/Guardian of Nagafen, soon to come out of retirement. I’ve betrayed him between about 6 times already so by my reckoning I should get a in-game reward for doing it a 7th time.
My new Shadowknight/Paladin, Scarscream.
Yes, that’s right. My name is Gordon and I have an Ogre fetish. And you know what the really creepy thing is? They all look identical…
So what exactly is it that I love about these majestic creatures? Honestly, I’m not quite sure but maybe it has something to do with towering over my enemies and smashing into the ground and then grinding them under my feet or looming over my comrades and blocking their entire view of the battleground when we fight in compact dungeons. Either way, it’s bloody good fun.
Anyone a psychiatrist?
