This is a story of deception, intrigue, and doublecrossing. It is a story of liars, bandits, and greed. It is a story of the worst of the human condition, and how the motive for profit will drive a normally nice guy to the deepest depths of evil and betrayal.
It took me 30 minutes to read, but, oh, was it worth it. It’s so well-written, it’s scary. He builds up to the climax like a seasoned novelist, and the payoff is worth every minute.
It also provides a fascinating look into the lives of hardcore MMORPG players. It’s a little disturbing how their online lives cross over into their real lives, with people threatening to kill this guy in real life if they ever catch him.
Warning: the story is exceptionally profane. But, man, it’s good.
