Says it all really. I confess I cannot add any more. I didn't arrive before 10:00 and then took things fairly easily.

I am extremely disappointed in this.

Folly, you miss the whole point of doing bash logs. The point of a bash log is to describe what happened in the bash for the benefit of those who weren't there. You're supposed to go into detail about who did what, and what you did, and the eventual results.

A one-sentence post is NOT going into any sort of detail at all.

By contrast, look at the bash report I did a month or so ago. Not only did I give as detailed an account as I could of my own doings in the bash, but I spoke to the other players so I got a good idea of what they were doing at the time as well. I ended up with a pretty good picture of what happened, so those who missed it were able to read the bash log and get a detailed account of the bash.

You, on the other hand, took an approach that was the polar opposite. How can people possibly have a good idea of what happened with something like that?

I'm very disappointed.

The post is a record that there was a bash and it was a success+. If anyone wants to add a report nobody is stopping them.

Bashes are 9pm on Thursdays, they could always come and see for themselves.

There was tragedy, vengeance, death, destruction and victory (but none of them was on the player list). It started off quietly enough with three of us, Crixas and Rapscalion at necromancer and Folly at hero. Crixas had been voted bash general and, having arrived a bit late, I went in search of the falchion hoping to decimate much of the Land?s birdlife with it.

Things were fairly quiet until players who were more alert arrived. We were soon joined by Crazydimnd, Royston and then Jumpup.

Not quite sure what everyone else was up to, I decided to try and convince the hunchback that he should share his wafers. He wasn?t of the same mind and drove me off to another corner of the scriptorium where I nursed my wounds. Someone shouted for help with the Keep so I used that excuse to leave the monastery (bravely dispatching the piglet on my way out the door).

I managed to trade in the falchion for the dagger at the Keep and, in helping Crixas with some of the dwarves, was able to pick up two mini-wafers. Meanwhile, Folly was cutting a wide swath through mobiles on sea and land with the help of his trusty longsword. Crixas slew the dragon and I believe it was Crazydimnd who felled the March hare and Royston the snake charmer who once again worked his magic under the well. Jumpup assisted in meditating for the icons. Turns out, the golem had collected the broadsword while we had all been busy elsewhere but Crixas was able to prevail.

Towards the end, after having killed the parrot and raven, I noticed that the Pagoda had opened. We all sped there. The tiger jumped me in the courtyard but with the arrival of Crixas was soon dealt with. I have no idea who killed the apes or the giant snake. There were still one or two mobiles remaining ? and it seemed that Folly would also triumph on that front but it was not meant to be. Sadly, he fell to the Phoenix.

Unearthing my scribbled notes and maps, I ascended the first floor of the Pagoda. A bit more sleuthing and I was on the second floor groping for the phoenix in the pitch black (they don?t like to be groped, by the way). The two mini-wafers came in very handy but in the end it was necessary to whip out my flask and imbibe of gran?s special brew. Another bird was added to my obit count. Lastly, the mongoose, and victory was ours!

This was what happened to the best of my recollection. However, gran?s special brew might have blurred a few details. I blame all inaccuracies on it of course.

A bit harsh Zalagar. A bit harsh. However Folly's one-liner does beg the following question: 'Has anyone seen Blib recently?' I worry when his presence is not evident.

Water-snakes usually flee!

No need to apologise Folly. The only problem I have (and it's my problem and no one else's) is that if I am still at Superhero or below, still a fighter that is, and another player kills a watersnake, I waste a lot of time having accounted for five, looking for the sixth. This is in no way a winge.

I reckon I am fairly experienced by now down the well. I find that if you are on full stam of 100 they tend to ignore you, neither fighting nor fleeing. When they do try and flee towards the end of a fight, they do not seem to be very good at it. Also if you forget to stam up, as I have done many, many times and wander around on a stam of 30 they will attack on sight.

Third attempt at posting this.

Looking back, Turrican is right. The water snake didn't have to die.

But it did start it

Also I think the old man took a wrong turn and killed himself. I might be wrong.

He isn't "supposed" to do anything - your sense of self-entitlement is misplaced. If you want better, turn up to the bash and do your own write-up.

I suppose one must expect some unpleasantness in the forum on March 15th?
