An air of anticipation filled the Tearoom just before 9pm this Thursday (or 10am Friday for some of us). The banner on signing in proudly declared

OYEZ! 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

...or early Thursday afternoon for some of us . Nice write up Kiwi!

Resolved not to race for kit this bash I nevertheless found an umbrella and a pointer in short order. My pointer delay tactics are still in fine form as I managed to get caught by a snake and I only did half the job the first time (next time! ). Everyone managed to find their way to the ruin in quickly enough though.

I embarked on a couple of seafaring adventures, and then teamed up with Pushover to ascend the Keep where I found a crown (or two). After a short pole dance in the pagoda area, I was attacked by the tiger (note to self: no more napping near tigers), and then joined Thwomp and Folly to kill the giant snake.

There were a few other detours to kill sk0, some foliage in Redwoods and, then -- along with Spike and Xkcd -- we killed the last mobile and made the land safe for Santa and his merry band.

Apologies to Folly and Xkcd whose tells I missed amidst the scrolling and dashing around.

It was a good bash and a fun way to wind down the year. We missed Zedar (the ogre was asking after him) and Royston and Cen -- I can only surmise that Royston and Cen are still recuperating from the mudmeet last week.

Cheers to Heiach for running it.

The key to killing giants is it's all about preparation and planning. Use your strengths and exploit their weaknesses. They can hit hard, so whatever you do, don't let them see you coming.
