The Burglar

Filed under: viking fellowship — Tags: , , , , , — mmoviking @ 6:44 pm

Our latest member of the Viking Fellowship is an old friend.   I have known and played with Cap since I first started playing MMOs back in 2001.  Back then he was Cappy the Ogre Warrior of Norrath and he later became Capron the Barbarian Shaman.  Huge change in Lord of the Rings Online he is playing a Hobbit Burglar.  Capron started playing with us just a few weeks ago but is already level 44.  He is a MMO pro.  I am overjoyed that Cap has joined us.  He is an excellent player but also he is the life of the party.  Cappy is the funniest player MMO Viking has ever played with.  Smart comedy like 30 Rock not dumb comedy like 2 and a half men.  Cappy used to play Everquest in the back of his classes on his laptop which Beo and Nin thought was awesome.  I also love the fact he chose a Hobbit Burglar.  The fellowship really can use a burglar well for all the conjunctions, specially due to the fact Red seems to always be low on power.  Red will say this is due to the fact he is using all his warden skills possible and getting every inch out of it.  I think Red needs to drink more power potions!   And we needed a Hobbit.  This is Lord of the Rings dammit, sequel to The Hobbit.  This time the hobbit isn’t hired by Gandalf and 13 dwarves to burgle but by Redranth and 2 dwarves!  My favorite races in lotro in order are dwarves, hobbits, female elves, female humans, male humans, male elves.  I don’t know why people play an MMO to play a human that seems boring.  There might be a third dwarf, another old friend added to the mix if he ends up enjoying lotro.  MMO Viking hopes so.  You can never have too many dwarves!


  1. Ogre shaman? I see senility has set in! And I nearly threw up when you called him a “pro!”

    • MMO Viking has finally gotten a team Viking member’s description dead on! Don’t ruin the first real step towards progress he’s made in over five years of playing with your specious criticisms!

  2. Also, what the hell is with his eyes in that screenshot? He looks possessed! Must have been taken while I was grouping with him!

    • MMO Viking KIDNAPPED Capbo

      ***(despite being named Capron in game, I have decided that all third-person references to myself will be as Capbo, in honor of MMO Viking’s long-in-coming-but-better-than-never acknowledgement that until recently, Team Viking has been hopelessly foundering without a hobbit burglar to serve as its anchor in the storm)***

      out of Esteldin where he was happily crafting burglar tools and playing with his pony Nibbles. He then ported Capbo to the Shire and made him run all the way out to Century 21, in order to rub-in the fact that there are no empty houses in the neighborhood. After all of that, he forced Capbo to pose for screen shots for at least 15-20 minutes doing skills and emotes. I can only hope that the *private* photos of a tunicless Capbo never surface in the future to ruin an otherwise promising pageantry career.

      The only point to relating the story above is to point out for Nindy’s benefit that MMO Viking had to have had at LEAST 20-30 ss’s to choose from and THIS was the result!!

  3. whoops thats right he was a barbarian! I’ll fix that. And he is a pro! After every level he makes he demands a slap on the ass and a “GOOD GAME!”

  4. His eye is looking at something shiny on the ground that he thinks might be loot!

  5. Really? That slap on the ass thing must just be something he does with you. Guess I can’t say that really surprises me!

    • It’s NOT GAY if you say “GOOD GAME!” afterwards!

      (both Cappy’s little league coach and boy scout leader have assured him of this ad infinitum)

  6. Capron has surpassed you in terms of being a loot whore in lotro. The entire world is weeping!

  7. He is a looting machine! Except when it’s a quest item then he forgets.

  9. Some day soon Cappy is gonna write a guest blog on the woes of being a burglar in a group full of dorfs with Napoleanic complexes. It will make you laugh, it will definitely make you cry.

    MMO Viking is awfully nice in his blog. In game all Cappy hears is that he makes Beos sad :(. Cappy blames Nibbles for getting him lost. That pony has no sense of direction whatsoever. It was not incumbent upon Cappy to be a lewt whrsz in EQ. He was a noble barbarian with the sacred calling of slowing, healing, and knock-back-rooting mobs on unsuspecting PC casters. Now he’s a halfling BURGLAR!! It is his sacred calling to ensure that no vendor trash go unlooted!

    Cappy isn’t usually as funny as he is in MMO’s, but he was cursed with an over-developed sense of the ridiculous. When grouped with Team Viking, this results in paroxysms of agony that can only be relieved by a running commentary on it.

    • First off- we had a hobbit Burglar named Zalamar that we played with for probably 2 months, but Reddranth didn’t like how he wasn’t starting conjunctions enough, so he banished him to the far reaches of the world unknown to most people.

      And I do use power potions! whats the point of having 2000 power if you are only going to use 10% of it each fight!? Get out there and use all your power each fight or its a waste! It regens fast enough out of combat.

      By the way, /slaps ass. Good Game Cappy

  10. You’d better add that avatar Red, otherwise Beo’s going to start bitching at you!
