Poor, poor Morroc.
Yep, that's right folks--this winter, Episode 12 hit the (LEGITIMATE) International Ragnarok Online servers. They gave some time after their announcement so that people could do the Dandelion's Request ... quest; since that quest deals with preventing the very thing that happens in Episode 12, it was going to be permanently removed.
Welp, now the proverbial thousand-ton genie is out of the bottle, and Morroc is a wasteland. Even the Sograt Desert has changed, now the hunting grounds of Surt (AKA Satan Morroc).
And like many, I'm sad to see the town go. For Christmas Day, after being inspired by suggestions from fellow castmate Sniff the Raven and a friend from iRO Chaos, Kiniro, I made this flash short.
There's an additional part I'll be adding shortly after Christmas Day, a few seconds that had to be cut out due to lack of available voice actors--but Kiniro's done them for me, and thus it'll be added. Just not when I first upload this!
Anyway, enjoy, guys, and hold a toast in memory of Morroc. ;_;
EDIT, DECEMBER 27 2008:
There we go. After some irritating interruptions involving a mandatory visit to relatives, I managed to finish and add the missing voice-acted bit. It's not much, but it does bring the animation a tad closer to being a minute long!
As the revised credits notes, Kiniro of iRO Chaos is responsible for the added lines. He and Sniff the Raven are also the guys responsible for this idea in the first place, from the suggestions between the two of them.
