Last week Chris Kluwe, the Minnesota Vikings punter and noted World of Warcraft and RPG fan, cast his team's season opener in terms of an MMO quest. He's done the same thing this week so we'll hold him to it and chart his progress.
Although, I do wonder who the quest-giver is: Is it head coach Leslie Frazier? Or Commissioner Roger Goodell, as the league performs the scheduling?
This week's quest:
Weekly Quest - Retrieve a Rusty Horseshoe from hostile dungeon with loud noises, distractions. Quest reward [6.25% exp to next level, gold]— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) September 16, 2012
Update: The Warriors of the Northwoods failed, 23-20. Says Chris Warcraft himself:
Almost had that Horseshoe, but then the final boss got a sudden infusion of Luck. Quest Failed. #minus50dkp— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) September 16, 2012
Today's quest - travel to an enclosed arena and retrieve a jaguar pelt. Potential Quest Reward [6.25% exp to next level and gold reward]— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) September 9, 2012
Result: QUEST COMPLETE (Minnesota 26, Jacksonville 23. Kluwe: 5 punts, average 48.4 yards, long of 59.)
Right now the Vikings trail the Colts 10-6 at halftime.
