All was well that Friday eve. News of the Mage Tower lock down had spread like wildfire. Mages from all around began to show themselves at the Tower to rejoice and be glad at the wondrous happenings that were taking place. At this time the gods have only secured part of the tower. The first floor and part of the second floor. Word was that the remaining items would be placed this coming week! After asking what the magi think of the lock down, this mage figures a picture is worth a thousand words.
And so begins the adventure. With a rune provided to me from Nick of Time the crawl began. It was decreed by Tiffric that I lead the crawl. As seen in the picture, Bolo so nicely points out that the "newbie" should lead! HAHA thanks for the support Bolo. =] Shame awaited us!
Upon arrival we exited the gate and grouped up. I mainly tried to ensure that the group was held together. The lag was tremendous at times but it was well worth the hassle.
Moving along we held our ground and advanced quite well. There were about 20+ mages present and the higher levels of Shame were coming under our control. Of course there are those that attract trouble and need help. =]
Once the Bloods were upon us, a combination of lag and bad position left a few of us standing over our bodies. And of course there was the ever present looter. He did not last very long.
"... I missed a lot of the middle then. I had to guard FoX (he kept crashing. Hehe Mr. Can I blow stuff up ;) I did get back for the blood elementals. I died like most of us, what I find comical is the @#$^ that looted my corpse didn't bother with my regeants but took my pants and hat... Anyway it was lots of fun :) "Nick of Time, Master Bard
"As only a fool would attack a Mage of the Tower with many of his brothers and sisters around. And as for someone stealing Nick's pants and hat, I am told that Big Earl is a bit strange, maybe he will give them to Isobel for one of her necromancy rituals. Watch out for curses now Nick... :) "Tiffric, Mage of the Tower
We mages are renowned for our wisdom as shown here.
All in all with everyone returning safely to the Tower, it was agreed that the night had been a SUCCESS! A lock down and a very exciting dungeon crawl!
