Introducing Nindrojrir

Filed under: viking fellowship — Tags: , , , , — mmoviking @ 4:16 am

The next member of the Viking Fellowship I wish to indroduce is Nindrojrir Perfidious the Dwarven Rune-Keeper.  Nindrojrir acts as the fellowship’s Healer but can do just as much DPS as Beowyf in a pinch.  Nindrojrir is constantly running around and jumping.  Nin has been running in circles constantly since Everquest 1.  MMO Viking’s kids laugh and call him “your jumping friend” when they see him.  Always dressed in black Nindrojrir seems like a cross between Lord Vordimort and Stewie from Family Guy.  Always quick to laugh at another member of  the Fellowship’s misfortune in game.  Well actually I think the entire Fellowship does this with each other but I think Nin leads this category.  Nindrojrir can summon a large healing Runestone that heals all Fellowship members closeby.  Beowyf likes to lean against it during fights.  Nindrojrir can also name the runestone, so being Nin he names his runestone after characters that have peeved him lately.  It is very insulting and can be confusing when the game says the Runestone has been defeated by enemies.  Nindrojrir always yells!  Every sentence is a yell!  An example would be “Beo what hell are you doing!”  Nindrojrir is the richest of the Fellowship with 100 gold to his name.  This is unacceptable to Beowyf who only has 63 gold.  The fact that Nin never spends his gold has not gone un-noticed by the Fellowship sometimes resulting in slurs directed at him.  In a past life Nin was Nindakin the Gnome Wizard.  MMO Viking prefers Norse-like Dwarves to Fae-Celtic-like gnomes anyday!  Luckily  J.R.R. Tolkien didn’t have a group of gnomes show up recruiting Bilbo Baggins to burgle for them!

  1. Always yelling? ALWAYS YELLING!?

    I prefer the term “constructive criticism!” Someone has to keep the rabble in line! Your description did amuse me though!

  2. Exactly right.

  3. Haha, awesome! Other fond recollections of Nindy:

    -ALWAYS running in circles. I have theories: (1) this discourages anyone from ever auto-following on Nindy (as an EQ-caster, this was a constant threat and irritation to Nindy who hates the thought that anyone (and especially Beo) could break from keeping up with a raid or group by /following on him), (2) . . . ok, it’s only one theory, I’m pretty sure that’s the reason.

    -Nindy taking me out into the wilds on my very first full day playing LotR. . . and then summoning a lvl 30 something (I was lvl 7!) wolf type creature on me that promptly bit me in hobbit-half. Bad Nindy.

    -Nindy offering me plat bounties in EQ for killing group-mates he wasn’t fond of by knock-back stunning big mobs on top of them while medding.

    And yes, even when Nindy isn’t actually yelling, there is definitely an implied increase in vocal output whenever he comments.

  4. Those are good theories Cappy and Nin summoning that wolf in the Shire on you is classic! HAHA!!

    Nin bribed me today to pull agro with a Strength Stance Heartseeker arrow to open up a boss fight in the 16th hall dungeon in Moria to make Red mad. Of course Beo did it, and almost got killed. That’s another person Nin reminds me of, the little red cartoon devil on the shoulder telling Beo to do bad things!

  5. Keep trying on those theories, you’re not even close!

    And my subversion, bribery, and deception extends all the way back to my earliest EQ days! I think the one incident I was most famous for was back when NR was raiding Halls of Testing in ToV. A new applicant asked which direction HoT was, and I responded with “North” and then “Go left.” Five seconds later, a corpse magically appeared!
