If you want to play a silly online ninja game, why not play it at Turtle, the most testudinous, if not outright chelonian, of all ninja villages?
I'm a vice-leader of the village now, so if you want to play, let me know your character's name and I'll let you straight in to the village.
Also, if you click on my banner below (and end up playing the game) I get free shinies.
How does one embed the BvS banner/link? The Live Journal HTML they provide does not work at Me&U.

I just paste the link to the image in the image link window, then highlight it and use the link tool to turn it into a link.
Also, you forgot the cardboard robot fighting tournaments. And the .hack reality-shifting! ;p
(Also, it looks like Wonderduck just got hit with a comment spam attack.)

Off Topic @ Pixy: Was there any progress on that matter we discussed?

Pixy, how's your S2 checklist coming? I'm seriously considering blowing through it and starting Mono in S3...

giant robots 5%
And the .hack reality-shifting!
Yeah, I didn't have a pithy description for that one (and I haven't done it yet).
Pixy, how's your S2 checklist coming?
Wasteland is done except for the final quest. Just starting Monochrome, and need to finish The Trade.
Not sure how hard Mono will be; we'll see.
Was there any progress on that matter we discussed?
Sorry, still working on it; hope to track it down today.

Mono's not -super- hard. It's plenty hard, though, and for three reasons:
-High range requirements married with high numbers of required successes. 20d20s checks are not uncommon. Strawberry levels on a 25d25s Tai mission. On the good side, unlike Wasteland, all your +strength stuff works here. On the downside, only your Reaper allies will work here, and the ones you start with aren't that good. (And only Reaper-ally techniques will work...)
On top of that, you need to find more or less everybody (a lot of the quests require so-and-so, if not in your party, at least available to you.) A number of them only appear on rare missions. On top of that, their appearance rates -suck-. Monochrome soaks up lots of smoke bombs (not least of which because the countermeasure to the low ally drop rate, Monochrome Pheromone, is good for one mission only; use one, attempt missions, smoke bomb until the one you want turns up, and hope like heck you pass it!)
On top of that, Mono has an added stamina drain - 10 extra for each mission normally, and 5 after you get Awesome Pants. It's not a fun place to farm.
Finally, near the end, there's an item check. Getting a hollow leg is relatively easy; getting Doughman isn't hard either (or rather, by this point you better be able to get 10 arena wins in a day), but you also have to have a kaiju drop item. Not only that, you have to have -gotten it from the kaiju-. Doesn't count if you buy it or get it given to you; you have to win it straight from the monster. If your village doesn't summon monsters, you're SOL. If your village DOES, but there's 20 high-level players in it, you're probably SOL too...
Even without a kaiju drop, there's reason to go into Mono (Awesome Pants, and a lot of the niftier one-use items in the game come from ingredients that drop here). But it's tougher than the Wasteland, not just because it plays by different rules, but because it's -just freakin' tough-.

Ah, forgot about the kaiju drop. I do have one, but I was awarded it (for most attacks) rather than winning it directly.
I'm planning on farming some ally drops before I loop, but I might give Mono a miss for now.

Created an alt. I'll park him in Turtle and he can help out. ^^

So I patrolled, donated various things to the storehouse, collected herbs, took D level missions and fought zombies,
Why am I still a lazy ninja?

Did you actually patrol (as in, the patrol option in the village)? That should take you off the lazy list. If you have the "You are helping a village out today" message showing in the village, you're good.
