OYEZ! OYEZ! From Heiach the chimerical wizard, at 21:02:48 on 19-Dec-2013: It's the giant bash, game on! Let's see if we can complete this! OYEZ! OYEZ! OYEZ! The Bash general was elected before the reset to save time in the main event - which had been greatly anticipated - all areas might open (Heiach promised Pagoda and Giants at least) - records could be set - blood could be spilt and mayhem could ensue...... The assembled crowd looked formidable but so was the task ahead of us.... Hawumph the onomatopoeic arch-wizard Heiach the chimerical wizard Pushover the necromancer Bluestone the necromancer Spike the warlock Thwomp the sorceress Crazydimnd the necromancer Heresiarch the sorcerer Osterbane the flappy yeoman (who didn't play the bash) Folly the necromancer Xkcd the necromancer We heard the sound of rock splitting almost immediately but apart from that the set started normally with everyone kitting up and offing their favourite 1st blood kills - with impeccable timing I (as Crazydimnd) ran straight into the ram before I had got any weapon and ended up using the old kung fu attack to off it. Settled for the halberd until a friendly wiz dropped some better weapons around the Land so we could upgrade - I settled for the cutlass. After a bit of a run around with the pointers the pillar party occurred and off we all went in earnest. I set in to do the watersnakes and north mountain - spent a while chasing the marmot and missed the snow leopard which I think Spike had to finish off later in the game. While I was underground I heard the mine flooding so the dwarfs were about to get their comeuppances. Xkcd was in the scriptorium, Folly was in the giants, heresiarch was in the cellar, Spike was in the dwarfs and I think Thwomp was up there too. We were down to 100 Mobs left and we were not even at the 30 minute mark - we were rockin! We then suffered our one and only casualty: obit The following players have died in fights this reset: Ulath the superheroine, killed by the giant and 2 goblins The Dragon roared courtesy of Bluestone just as I finished the last WS - after the mountain I left via the pagoda grounds which were bereft of life - not a single Ape in sight. I headed off for the giants to join in the carnage, but lost my way trying to get in from the Goblins area and ended up heading down to the shrine where Heiach was standing around watching over the battle for Giant1. Giant1 promptly beat me up and after fleeing and recovering I headed back for more. This time there were three of us, me, Xkcd and 'someone'. When Giant3 fell we were down to 15 MOs left. I went looking for the bull but was beaten to the kill by well - I'm not sure - but Thwomp was in the bull pen by the time I got there and the bull had only recently departed - so it seems reasonable he did for it. By now Thwomp had picked up the tag "deceitful" - not sure what that story is..... I shouted "bring on Redwoods" as Hei had removed it earlier to avoid us having too much on our plates - but then we had the choice - do we go for an all time record of 51 mins left or open redwoods. Initially we went for the record. Giant0 was still in the black cave - so I headed up there and joined in - Folly was already making good use of the two handed sword, along with 'someone'. The Giant didn't have a chance. The Shark, seagull and remaining SK were dispatched. As the clock ticked over past the 51 mins left and we couldn?t do it (with only the golem left) we decided to open redwoods too. I headed in and got stuck into the male roc - who of course called for his partner - and I must admit to good fortune as Xkcd joined in to dispatch them. Heiach advised us that all MOs that were alive were in combat and soon we got the 3K bonus. qw Heiach the chimerical wizard Xkcd the necromancer Spike the warlock Folly the warlock Qodz the superheroine Ulath the first-blood superhero Heresiarch the giant-killing, surrealist sorcerer Crazydimnd the giant-killing, surrealist necromancer Pushover the warlock Bluestone the dragon-slaying necromancer Thwomp the deceitful necromancer The bash scoreboard now had a new entry 19/12/2013 - 44 minutes left (Heresiarch, Crazydimnd, Pushover, Folly, Bluestone, Thwomp, Xkcd, Ulath and Spike)PRG _________________ "there are things we do not know we don't know." - Someone must have been talking about MUD
