[quote] On 01-07-2011 11:10, royston wrote: BASH REPORT FOR THURSDAY 30TH JUNE 2011 I started this bash at Superhero level and my plan was to make Sorcerer by the end. I had 7010 points and needed to score 2790 points and get the 3K bonus to do this. As we shall see, I managed to get the 2790 at one stage but dropped back after a flee and in any case, we did not succeed in the bash so there were no extra points at the end. It started off dead on time. I counted in Gaia the Warlock, Xiuhcoatl the Hero (try typing that in a hurry) and Folly the Prelate. Cenedra the Mage also appeared in the Tearoom worth 36,502 points, it said. I was still kitting up when I was attacked by the ram. Luckily I overcame it (I had by this time armed myself with the staff) and so had my first kill. I wasted no time in going down the well. I was given an interesting dream word down there: ?fump?. Not as good as the one I had the other day though: ?prat?. I don?t normally get four letter dream words. Next came three zombies in quick succession. Then it was the turn of the pterodactyl. To my surprise it wasn?t as though as I thought it would be. My stamina only dropped to 80/100. It is always more difficult to bash as a non-magic-user, simply because you have not got the ?where? command. Someone shouted that the Giant Snake was still alive but that the mongoose and the phoenix were dead. This told me the Pagoda had opened up and caused me to wonder about the apes. I soon barged into a troop of them. (Do apes come in troops or is it monkeys?) Ape0 is the leader. They all seem to follow him and he is described as ?huge and enraged? whereas the others are simply ?enraged?. A ?QW? showed the same five players on, including Cenedra. So five was enough to open up the Pagoda and its environs. I got apes 0 and 1 but had to assume the rest were dealt with by someone else as there was no trace of them anywhere in the pagoda gardens. But then I remembered the monk and went for him. I next decided to check the formal garden and foolishly attacked the stag. I fled on a stam of 15 and it cost me 200 points. Next time the stag fled from me but I did not go after him as my stam this time was down to 21. During this encounter a bell tolled and I was informed that Folly had died and departed from house ?MA?. I was recovering in the summerhouse and had caught a cold. I had not made the mistake of sleeping in the rain but the stag had done so and had sneezed on me. Round 3 with the stag and this time I fled on just 20 stam. That cost me a further 397 points. Fourth round I got him and gained 227 points. Thus I recovered less than 50% of the points I had lost. That?s how it goes. A quick check showed that there were 56 mobiles left alive and 39 minutes left of this set. A successful outcome was on the cards if there were enough players on. We were now up six in the land Gaia and I having been joined by Suntzu the Superhero, Mrsorc the Sorcerer, Gsix the Hero, and Groggy the Sorcerer. Xiuhcoatl the Hero had left but the same player may have come back in as one of the aforementioned personas, for all I knew. The Boar came next and finally, after a long search for a boat, the Swan. Unless the mobiles on the North Mountain are dealt with straight after the Watersnakes they tend to be forgotten. It is difficult as a non-magic-user though because you need a means of getting off the mountain without dying a silly death. And it had not occurred to me until this moment when I am writing this that with the Pagoda open it posed no problem. However I came across one such means and that reminded me. The pony was quite easy I ended with a stam of 88/100. The Snowbird went equally easily. A shouted enquiry produced the response that the Marmot was also about and I knew just where to find him. Landing in the Forest at Base of Cliff it was just a short trip to the Mausoleum where Skeleton2 lurked. I was making no headway. The skeleton was still ?strong? when I was down to 53 stam. This was the time to shout for some help. Gaia and Groggy came to my assistance and the skeleton was finally defeated with my stam down to 35. I had a peek in the Ruin and saw the cord was still intact. I felt it was less suicidal to join Groggy in the Dwarfs than attempt to tackle the Spider. The stocky guards had gone, as had the hefty ones. I am not sure if Groggy had managed these on his own or if he had help. But between us we overcame the burly ones followed by the Queen and finally the King. I have an idea the surly Guards may have been missed out completely. They are so easy to miss. Once the King is dead there is the temptation to think it?s all done. I confess I grabbed the throne and swamped it. I managed to get it out this time. Earlier on during the day I had set it alight getting it out of the Dwarfen Realm and blew myself up, much to everyone?s amusement, at the Swamp. Now I attacked the Man. He went invisible and then fled. After a bit of searching round I gave up. After a while I found Suntzu fighting skeleton1. He had the blade while the skeleton had a pick.. I joined in with my staff. We were now down to just 8 mobiles alive with 494 seconds ( just over 8 minutes), so a win was still possible. Or it was until the Giants opened: You have killed the skeleton1. (+113 = 9,932). A smallish, well-maintained pickaxe has been dropped here. The skeleton1 falls apart. *Suntzu the superhero shouts "I froze out!". *sv 8 alive, 287 dead. *reset Time-stamp: 22:46:16 on 30-JUN-2011. This is reset 51551, using slot 0. A reset is due in 494 seconds. *n West lush pasture. A very nice wood and lucite paperweight is resting here, inscribed with words and a picture. *In the distance, you hear the terrifying sound of rock splitting! *n South mountain. *A male voice in the distance cheers. *A male voice in the distance shouts "lol". *sv 57 alive, 238 dead. *qw Pultroon the hero Gaia the warlock Suntzu the superhero Mrsorc the sorcerer Gsix the hero Groggy the dragonfly-slaying sorcerer Cenedra the mage# Royston the superhero= There are a few strange names here including ?Poltroon? After helping Suntzu with the skeleton my score was up to 9,932 (within 3K of Champion) but my stam was down to 52 and I headed as quickly as I could to a dense forest to recover. But I was not quick enough. As I rushed headlong, I crashed into the Man. He remembered that I had attacked him earlier and wasted no time wading in. This flee cost me 458 points and I was back to 9,474. It was academic anyway with so many mobiles left and several of them Giants. Groggy may have messed around with a few goblins and giants but I resisted the temptation. Suntzu?s line dropped when we were fighting that skeleton and he was lucky to survive.
