For Blib:

We won.

For everyone else:

On Thursday 26th March 2009 Crazyfool replaced the weekly bash with a Dragon Bash due to popular demand and months of talking about the possibility.

Participants

In attendance (to the best of my knowledge) were:

Cenedra = Pwned, Pwnedagain, Iownzjooz, Ipwnjoo, Pwnjoo
Eleven = Pinball
Hal = Kdragonhal, Dragonhal, Kdragon, Haldragon
Jamesbond = Odd
Throwaway = Redwood, Greenwood, Aimless
Royston = Royce, Royson
Leak = Sneaker, Slayerleak
Caboose = Pritchard, Beavis, Dragfood

Preparations

We started off with a couple of players leaving the tearoom too early, and the game had to be re-reset once. However within a few minutes we got going and began gathering kit. The strategy was simple: wander around as one large group killing dwarfs and other mobiles in order to avoid wasting wafers. 11 of them were collected (pagoda was apparently locked from opening) and redistributed as evenly as possible prior to the fight. We also did pillar twice as Crazyfool generously gave us a second pillar. He gave us some nice weapons (epee, rapier, two-handed sword) in addition to the ones we had gathered (bs, ss, dagger0). We also grabbed some vials, the cape, and the ox, the idea being that the dragon would attack the ox for extra manpower. Nice theory but in practice the dragon ignored the ox, and Odd and I ended up accidentally doing a "k mo f wp", the result of which can be seen in the obit below. The cape came in handy as players were able to grab it whenever someone died, so it ended up being shared between us.

The fight

After about 45 minutes, and lots of impatient shouting from Crazyfool, it was decided by popular vote that we had gathered enough kit.

Quote:
*Pwnjoo the hero shouts "CHAAARRRGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".



We proceeded to and entered the fairy ring which had been set up in the east lush pasture and were met by an unexpected obstacle:

Quote:
*enter ring
There is a blink of complete darkness, and the scenery changes.
Fairy ring.
It is raining. An evil-looking goblin (goblin11) stares at you, madly. The
goblin11 is carrying a knife0 and a dart0. An exceptionally large goblin
(goblin10) stands provocatively before you. The exceptionally large goblin10
is carrying a tapestry0 and a key2. You espy a beautiful, mid-blue sapphire
here.
*The exceptionally large goblin10 is rushing at you aggressively.



There was no opportunity to sleep up after this fight as some players had already attacked the dragon. So without further ado we all joined in the fight:

Quote:
*enter ring
There is a blink of complete darkness, and the scenery changes.
Fairy ring.
It is raining. Beating its enormous wings above you is an immense,
fire-breathing dragon! A sharp knife glints in the light. You spot a smallish,
yet heavy-looking tapestry, depicting scenes from famous goblin battles. There
is a heavy dart on the ground. A rusty key can be seen here. You espy a
beautiful, mid-blue sapphire here.
Redwood the heroine is here carrying a potty and a pick0.
Pwnjoo the hero is here carrying a shortsword.
Leaning against the wall looking ill, Crazyfool the stand-up wizard lingers,
smelling strongly of alcohol carrying a coal and a toadstool.
Odd the heroine is here carrying a cardboard box1 and a dagger0.
The dragon is fighting Odd the heroine.
*You hear a grinding noise, as the dragon hits Odd the heroine.

*Odd the heroine has eaten a wafer5.
*A sailable coracle, large enough for one, has been left here.
*You miss the dragon.
The dragon hits you (36/100).
The ox lumbers away.



The 11 wafers and first wave of heroes lasted about 30 seconds, after which players started bringing in their additional heroes and/or creating new protectors. After my three heroes died I opted for doing the spring to yeoman for additional stats. Whether or not this was worth the extra delay in joining the fight, I'm still undecided about. The two-handed sword proved problematic as it was the first target for "g best wp" but was too heavy for lowbies to use. After noticing several players get stuck on it, I removed it to a different room.

Conclusion

Several hawumphs and personae later, I was in the middle of creating a new yeoman when there was mass cheering and it was announced that the dragon had died. Here's a log of the final moments, courtesy of Throwaway:

Round 2

The dragon was then momentarily restored and a few players got to kill it a second time, with the assistance of Crazyfool, as described to me by Leak:

Quote:
*Leak the warlock says "just checked the log , it was me , odd , pinball and
dragfood who finished him".
*Leak the warlock says "it's odd , because 2 seconds before i'd done a look
foe and she was full of life".
*Leak the warlock says "l foe The dragon looks full of life, and is holding

*Leak the warlock says "You have killed the dragon. (Persona saved on +650 =
4,008)".
*Leak the warlock says "lol , missed this bit *You hear sounds of combat,
as Crazyfool the stand-up wizard attacks the dragon. *You hear a crack, as
Crazyfool the stand-up wizard hits the dragon.".

Thanks, I've incorporated your log into my report and corrected the inconsistencies.

EDIT: figured out all the participants and updated the list of names.

So Armand, you just 'happened' to be out of the room when the dragon was killed?

Looks to me as if you were scared and fled leaving the others to carry on the fight.

Wimpy coward.

Looks like this one was spammed too and the Arch-Wizzes cleaned it up.
