Lets Get D.I.R.T.Y. Tonight
I had been neglecting my duties, I knew it from the start. When the priests in the Temple of Life started going on about excavation sites I barely paid attention. Didn’t they know Nostalgia had just purchased our very own guildhall? Everything that wasn’t guildhall related I pretty much just tuned out.
A week or so had gone by though and again I heard the hushed whispers. It was past time I checked things out for myself. I took the next carpet to Sinking Sands, brushing grains of, you guessed it – sand – out of annoying places that sand shouldn’t be. Why on earth had I decided to wear a dress to the desert of all places. I shook my head in annoyance. No one to blame but myself.
There were D.I.R.T.Y. workers everywhere. Standing by the carpets leading to Sinking Sands, and welcoming me on the docks once I landed. They mentioned I’d want to head west up the hills to see the new discovery. I thanked them and headed off.
Jimbo McDaniel greeted me, and mentioned he was having issues with the local monkey and wouldn’t I bet so kind as to shoo them away for him just for a bit? Of course I agreed. Some times it’s painful being this nice.
Then the monkey started throwing… stuff… at me. I didn’t sign up to be pelted with monkey poop!
After I finished shooing away the monkeys (and no doubt I looked slightly ragged, running up to Jimbo with my hair strewn about my shoulders and brown splotches covering my dress) Jimbo sent me to the excavation site to help out.
It wasn’t enough that I had been pelted by monkey poop, it was time to get REALLY dirty and help dig up relics.
My pick axe was just one of a thousand others working away in the sand. The sun lowered in the desert sky and my skin was coated in a thin film of dust and grime.
After a few hours of helping out the excavation site I headed back to Jimbo, I had been paid a few bits of D.I.R.T.Y. money for helping out and wanted to spend them. Of course before Jimbo McDaniel would open his shop to me he required me to investigate a monkey that had been going around infecting people. Once I had dispatched that monkey he sent me to take care of an even BIGGER monkey. I swear if I see another monkey today it will be one too many.
At the end of the day it was all worth it though, I got my very own excavation helm to take home. It can apparently also spot hard-to-see shinies on the ground, I got to test it out once before the site became too populated for me to notice any others.
Now if I could only remember what D.I.R.T.Y. stood for….
(( Spent some time doing the newest live event quests today, very fun! Aside from monkey poop, of course ))
