There is a danger that this report will develop into a rant, so from the outset I should state that the opinions expressed are my own and any criticism would be welcome. It started conventionally enough with me, having kitted myself out, plodding my way through the Watersnakes. After the first one we got the call to go to the Classical Ruin. It was definitely stated that the ptr was under the hut. The water-snake1 has just passed on. *A male voice in the distance shouts "pointer under hut". *A male voice in the distance shouts "pillar,". There can be no doubt about it. However?. *d Underground room. Kiwi the surrealist warlock is here carrying a blade. *A male voice in the distance shouts "killig something". *A male voice in the distance shouts "n". *wh ptr 1 in the place known as "classical ruin". The baton had disappeared. I arrived at the Classical Ruin by an alternative route. All that done, I went back to the Watersnakes. After that it was the turn of the Goblins. Mosquito helped me open the PC and went on to kill all the rats while I waded into the Goblins. Mosquito was minded to go after the dragon but someone had made the chart disappear, probably by swamping it. The chart missing was critical, or could have been. It took time to respawn. Initially I blamed those who I always blame when strange things happen. I blamed the Wizzes, convinced they were trying to stretch us. Sensibly I kept this view to myself. I now believe it was deliberate sabotage by a mortal player, intent on wrecking the Bash. You know the sort of person whose only enjoyment is spoiling other people?s fun. The sort of person who tips up a monopoly board when others are playing and laughs. The bash progressed very slowly. I plodded my way through a number of mobiles, as did other players but they were not going down fast enough and to make matters worse?.. In the distance, you hear a bell toll. *obit The following players have died in fights this reset: Mosquito the dragon-slaying necromancer, killed by someone. *A male voice in the distance shouts "STAMPPYYYYYYYYYYYYY". *A male voice in the distance shouts "jesus christ". *ql You are wandering in a pleasant maze of hedges. *Cenedra the bash-captain mage shouts "FENTOOOOON!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!!! FEEENNNTOOOON!!". *A male voice in the distance shouts "ohh dear... was that the Man ???". *A male voice in the distance shouts "report mosquito". *A male voice in the distance shouts "report". *zz ZZZzzz... *A male voice in the distance shouts "seifer...". You have just been woken up! Your stamina is 61. *A male voice in the distance shouts "is back!". *zz Yes indeed Seifer was back PK?ing. At this stage there were 82 mobiles left to kill and only 33 minutes left in which to do it. A pretty hopeless situation but just possible with all players in tact. Now it was hopeless. Another tipped up monopoly board? Seifer later claimed that a bash was just another set like any other and killing players is part of the game. Technically he is right. But the weekly bash is the one set a week when players have a defined objective and have to work as a team to achieve it. It is therefore highly enjoyable. Killing players during a bash is undesirable for various reasons. The only way I can see of discouraging his behaviour is to team up on him as soon as he appears. The problem is that he makes sure he stays invis. And you have no idea he is about until he is on you. But even so if the player attacked were to shout for help and give a location we could probably get there in time to be effective. No, he does not like being bundled. I think he reckons it is unsportsmanlike. But hey it is legal, within the rules of the game. He can?t have it both ways. As you woukd expect all players retired to the Tearoom and only one further mobile was killed. I think it was the wolf. Those taking part were: qw Heiach the biohazard wizard Krausersan the hero Stampy the necromancer Talnoy the superhero Kiwi the bash-captain warlock Zog the necromancer Mosquito the dragonfly-slaying necromancer Cenedra the bash-captain mage At one stage we had three Bash-Captains.
