You know you are addicted to Morrowind When...

Postby dragon wench » Sun May 23, 2004 5:44 pm

No doubt threads like this have been posted in the past, but there is a whole new crop of us now, and often these things can be fun ;)

So here goes...

You know you are addicted to Morrowind when...

1. You are passing by foilage and you walk closer in the hopes of instinctively recognising the species and its properties.

2. The night before an exam you head to a liquor store intent on purchasing potions of fortify intelligence and fortify luck

3. While people watching you have trouble figuring out if somebody would be a Breton, Nord or Imperial.

4. You unconsciously wave your arms about when close to a body of water planning to either walk on it or breath beneath it.

5. When purchasing a new set of running shoes you ask the clerk if they have a pair of Boots of Speed

You have decided never to sit down again.

If your friend has something that you want you taunt him until he takes a swing at you.

You wonder why, when watching crime watch the murderer simply did not 'dispose of corpse'.

You state your life ambition as 'fulfill prophecy and become then become a god'.

You ask for your tennis racket to be Deadric instead of Titanium.

You've started searching your cat for moon sugar.

You know you're addicted to Morrowind when:

- you try not to walk close to people for fear they'll say "Outlander" fifty times over.

- you walk up to someone with low disposition and try to use Admire or Intimidate, and geting a punch in the face in return

- you jump in a body of water wearing a fity pound suit of armor thinking you'll float

Any sain person would want to do that ^^ That would be awesom! Just think, you know you're gonna get into a fight with your girl friend, so you save before entering her house, and re play it ten times over, after which, you'd know exactly what she's gonna say, that kind of things she's gonna try to trick you up on. And find the perfect defence! Maybe even make up, and have a little make up xxx :D

You know you've been playing too much when . . .

. . . you call your brother-in-law "N'wah!!"

. . . You try to enchant your favorite baseball bat

. . . you wonder why it's taking you so long to hit your next "Level up."

. . . you instinctively flinch at large birds, anticipating a cliff racer attack.

You pass a particularly attractive plant display in front of a professional building and wonder how they managed it without taking a hit on framerates. :rolleyes:

(Yes, I know this thread is 2 months old. But it's a perennial. So add your own.)
To the Righteous belong the fruits of violent victory. The rest of us will have to settle for warm friends, warm lovers, and a wink from a quietly supportive universe.

- When you're in for a long walk, you put out your hands and retract them in the hopes of casting scroll of windform
- You try to use Ondusi's Open Door when you forgot to bring your key
- You tend to constantly jump when walking
- You jump off from the 4th floor certain that you will never get more than a slight wound
-You think that that broken leg you got from jumping off the 4th floor will fully recover when you wake up

You try and repair your old shoes with a hammer.

You keep a large crate outside your house that contains: a spoon, a vase and a piece of paper!

you can learn anything by just opening a book on any subject.

When you get poisoned or paralized you shrug and say"it'll wear off."

when someone compliments you and you think "i should go into third person view, and see if they're right"

when attempting to sneak in at night you think "now where did i leave that potion of invisbility"
Mag: Don't remember much at all of last night do you?
Me: put simply.... No :D
Mag: From what I put together of your late night drunken ramblings? Vodka, 3 girls, and then we played tic-tac-toe and slapped each other around.

Saving before a fight with anyone.Think if some one tries to kill you, you know every single move they'll make. They will be so confussed that you can walk away and laugh at the fool. or save before your girlfriend and you make up so you can reply it over and over. dont think me perverted you all know you were thinking of it dont lie to yourself. :cool:

When you go to a shop and they don't have what you want in stock, so you say to the cashier- 'Don't worry, I'll just wait for 24 hours outside and get it then.' :o

Or, walking into the storeroom of a shop, make sure no-one's looking, pick up everything in there and wondering why you get arrested afterwards...
