Quite honestly getting 3k is a bonanza when you are a struggling swordsman for the first time but as you get on a bit it becomes less of one. Somehow to me, the Bash lacked atmosphere. I have been soul searching all morning as to why I felt this way. All bashes seem to continue for some time with everyone doing their own thing, their own little part of the Land, just mopping up the mobiles but towards the end when only the ?heavy? stuff is left, we normally come together to form teams. That is where the ?atmosphere? is created. Friendships formed in the heat of battle and all that. Personally I find working as part of a team towards a common goal is the most satisfying part of a Bash. And last night it just did not happen. Apart from there being no election for a Bash-General, it started of perfectly normally as it always does with a rush for kit. Once more I missed out on the dagger and settled for the staff. And by the time I got where my one and only known wf is located, it had gone. Frostmourn the Hero got to it and the dagger just ahead of me. Other players were Caboose the Sorcerer, and Cenedra and Hal both Warlocks. I knew that Cen and Hal would be chatting in the Tearoom (and that is a comment not a criticism), so that left jus three, Caboose, who was coming on nicely and Frostmourn, whom I very mistakenly though was new, not having come across him before, and me. Meanwhile Fantods came into the game and we were four. Anyway we got stuck in. I bumped into Frostmourn in the Gobs. I had to hit a door down with my staff, having forgotten to get a key. I hate that. It seems so amateur not using a key. On the other side I bumped into elg and I only just survived that encounter. Eventually I found myself stuck once more in the Treasure Chamber. In the scramble for kit I had forgotten to site. Will I ever learn? I came out of the game and went straight back in. Picking a key up on the way and passing both Caboose, weighed down with T, and Frostmourn, valiantly beating up two fireflies at once, I made my way back to the Gobs. And then it was on to the WSs as usual. About half way through this someone shouted they were having fun with some apes. So the Pag had opened up. I went on to the snow of North Mountain, where I dealt with the pony and the Snowbird but the Snowleopard escaped me into the blizzard. I made my way back through the Pag dealing with a troublesome ape on the way. In the middle of this there was a lot of shouting about the pillar being set up and was I interested. I got to the Classical Ruin just in time. Back in the land I found a second, and I think the last, ape. Meanwhile I had strangely become invisible. It?s very odd when something like that happens and you do not know why. But of course it wore off. I spent most of my invisibility asleep recovering my stam. I then came across hh and decided to see if I could run with him. On my way to find a boat to go to the Fairy Ring (not the best of starts), I got blocked by z9. So I did what I always do when blocked by a z: ?k 1 mob wi wp?. So I killed the hh. Will I never learn? I mopped up in the Formal Garden and out of interest did a QW. Talktome the Warlock and Leak the Swordsman had joined us but I could not sure if they were in the land or in the Tearoom. But significantly Frostmourn was now a Dragon-slaying Champion. He immediately did a conversion to Sorcerer without making a big deal of it. Just one whoop that?s all. At 19 minutes left we still had to do: The Sea Life, Golem, V and the Wraith, the Spider, the Keep and the Dwarfs. I went out just to see who was in the Tearoom. Leak and Hal were there and it looked like it was just Talktome and me in the Land. Frostmourn had to be there as well but invis. I killed a bee or rather it died after giving me a sting. I wandered round for a bit and found the piglet I had missed earlier. Then at about 10 minutes to go I also lost heart and retired to the Tearoom. Talktome had disappeared so that left Frostmourn all on his own. He, unlike me, stuck it to the end. There were 43 mobs left at the reset. But there were 250 dead. My own contribution was exactly 28 and I felt as though I had been going non-stop. So even allowing for contributions from other players and some mobs killing each other, I suspect most were done by Frostmourn. I wonder who he is. If he was there before the Bash using his main persona, I think I know.
