Darnit! I should have waited until the 1st

I messed up. I passed the healer test last night. I was planning on waiting for April Fools to try again, since that is when I passed into 2nd circle a few years back. I guess that's what I get for dumping my stored ranks into Sespus and Faustus. I no sooner pass than Geo is telling me I need to train Proxi. I told him I will in a few years (bwa ha ha ha). Anyway, when I eventually get around to updating our site, I will post the visionstone on the LA site.

What's funny is that many already assumed I was third circle. I know, shocking that after all this time, I still don't cad. But I have a friend who has tried it, and basically hates it - but then again she is a wench. I hear she wants to hurry up and make 4th so she can at least upgrade to a merc. Anyway after hearing about Wenchies issues with cadding, I can totally understand Lori's disdain for that infernal contraption. Heck, I may just skip cadding altogether and work on my self heal and hardiness. From what I have witnessed, when I fall it can cause others to fall while the healers try to raise me vice healing fighters.

Finally, I went on the OWE hunt yesterday, boy was that fun! It was fun playing BB yo-y0. I was pretty good about avoiding healing them until they fell, since I knew it would mess up their BB skills.

After that hunt I studied for a couple of hours and then went with Geo & FB to someplace in the OOB? or was it the NOOB. Anyway we made it to an underground area then would pop up to fight the nasty Orga. I think I managed to fall only once, perhaps twice. Unfortunately the other much higher (and more important healers) fell pretty hard. I think Creed ended up using five potions to raise them. Geo was not happy, he said "Out means out!" You don't have to tell me twice, I would usually run screaming back to the well on yellow, since I was taking 30% hits. In this case a Cad or similar device would have been helpful since the chain lightening is too dangerous to try to heal exiles by touching. Oh well, maybe someday - when I get a merc I will be more useful.


Where have all the smoochy boochies gone?

Gee, I was reading my sidebar and saw my signoff. "Smoochy Boochies". I haven't been out of the library very much lately and haven't been able to inflict - er toss them to unsuspecting victims - er exiles. I must get out more so I can terrorize - er send happy thoughts to exiles...


Last LA Book 1 trip*

* for a while...

Well today was great fun with the last LA organized book 1 trip. Okee so basically we set a date and time and prayed exiles would show up and boy did they ever. It was so much fun, with Ogant leading and the mighty weapons of BlackHole, Kalian, Noivad, and Torin as well as so many others. I must say I think this is the shortest amount of time we have ever required to reach book 1. By Punny's account a mere 2 puddleby hours (ooc: 30 minutes). It was a lot of fun, since we were able to hang out in cave 2, and beat back the crimsons, pitches and malachites that kept spawning. Amazingly enough, no one ended up PND!

I did manage to make one mistake and almost cost us our mission, but lo and behold, the Zo warriors and the mighty healers (J'jh, Geraldus, Kitlin, Darth Wader, Alexia) managed to fend off a dozen or more malachites that myself and Punny accidentally lured back from the sw corner of cave two when we got a little bit excited and thought we could run for book 1. At about that same time while we were running for our lives back to the center of Cave 2 where Ogant and company were camped out, they were battling about 5-6 malachites. We had quite a few fallens but miraculously managed to raise all and beat back the nasty noids.

It was pretty cool that Torin volunteered OWE's help with this, as we never would have made it without them. It was interesting that since it was really only one dominant group (OWE) vice the two that we had last time, that there were no major (as in disaster) falls.

I have to say, I was most impressed with Ogant. He had a great sense of timing and seemed to know when it was safe to move forward, when to lure and when to hold. I think we only had to retreat once the entire time (thanks to me & punny's jumping the gun for book 1 - iirc).

Anway, I am rather relieved to not have to organize any more Book 1 trips, at least not for four years. I may organize one before the next Tsrrin. As for this Tsrrin, we will be going to Book 2. That is going to be mighty expensive! Lucky for us, we have a season or so to collect massive amounts of coins to bribe um reward the two mystics we need for this trip. I actually already know who I hope we can get.

After Tsrrin, we also plan to go to Book 3 around Bawkmas.

Anyway details on the Book 2 trip can be found here: http://www.vagilemind.com/clanlord/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4721&p=92307#p92307

Happy hunting!
