Few massively multiplayer online games attempt to make their players
laugh. Perhaps the one that does it with the most success is Dungeon
Runners, an online game with a funny bone the size of a large
tractor-trailer. With NCsoft's new boxed version of the game hitting
store shelves in the very near future, Dungeon Runners has pulled out
all the stops in their pursuit of hilarity and have created the Bling
Gnome. Ten Ton Hammer has the news on this new little bugger, and you
simply need to read on to find out more!
Exactly what is the
Bling Gnome you might ask? Similar to its cousin,
the Garden Gnome, the Bling Gnome is a tricked-up helper gnome with a
bit of attitude that will follow your character around and pick up all
the gold dropped on the ground (that was intended for you to pick up)
auto-magically. This way you don’t have to go running around
and pick it up all the gold yourself, the little gangster will do it
The Bling Gnome also has
the ability to pick up dropped items, at the
Rare level of availability and below (anything that’s not
purple- or rainbow-colored), and eat them, converting them into gold.
Another time saver! Instead of filling up your inventory with a clutter
of items you just want to sell when you get back to Townston, the Bling
Gnome will convert them into gold right then and there.
That’s not all… though honestly, what would
Dungeon Runners be without some scatological humor somewhere? Every
once in awhile during this “swords-into-goldshares”
conversion process, the Bling Gnome can produce amazing items from its
rear end in rather spectacular fashion. In other words, it can poop out
an ultra-powerful item (along with the gold). The more items you pick
up at once, the higher the chance it can happen. How handy is that?
have to look under a blarney stone to get their
own Bling Gnome. By the end of June, players can go to just about any
game retailer in North America and purchase a Dungeon Runners game pack
that includes the soon-to-be-legendary Bling Gnome as well as six
months of premium membership level game time for the price of four.
