Well what a weekend.
Frirstly from an OOC POV it was good, much better that the Games, but from an IC POV: it was rubbish!
IC I lost another 4 close friends, bringing the total up to 7 so far this year. Firstly I lost my "Little One", Terry Downpour which really knocked me for six as Elani. Then Condor died the next day on what could only really be called a suicide mission, as I understand it 15 people went and only 4 survived.
I was pretty miserable by that point in character and then word reaches the Guild that the Harts are getting horribly hammered by Demons. So we all peg it up there to help the Harts out.
As that fight draws to a close I get told that Chi is dead, and my jaw just dropped open. Sol come dashing up to me and firmly orders me to return to the Guild and sit in the Tranquillity Tent, I assume that was because he thought I didn't know and wanted to break the news to me in there.
Sadly I did know, and when that information was coupled with the fact that Prague had been destroyed Elani decided she had enough and couldn't cope. So she went home while I reffed for the rest of the evening.
I came back IC about an hour before the main Sunday fight, just as all the Vipers were leaving, and decided to get as involved as I possibly could int he fight without placing myself in serious danger.
Then of course Leren died. Well more than just died, he had his pattern destroyed by that bloody Jackal ancestor. So that evening Elani went off to Silver Falls to attend Leren's cremation.
Low points included:
Rubbish roleplayers doing the "oh I am here IC, but I'm OOC now so I can chat with so-and-so.
Too many deaths.castorlion
being unhappy. HUGE HUGS!
Not getting to see as many people as I would like to off. Had no idea Lyn was there until Saturday afternoon, and did not have the time to go and chat with him. Also there were others who I would have liked to have been able to talk with for longer, but just did not have the time.
High Points included:
Finding out that Evil is just a gullible as Good can be.
Going into complete rant mode as Elani over too many deaths.
Marshalling Jane the Banshee who was controlled by the DI's and sent into the Mages Guild to scream at them.
Talking with kheeram
in the Harts camp Saturday night. I think the phrases "speaking of gay icons" and "idealistic, but gay" will stick in my head from now on. Didn't stay in the Harts for as long as last time left at 3am instead of 5.30am.
Ian - best Lich ever!
The fact out tent looked so good, and we had a fridge in it!
Shouting "Mass Fear Rank X" at inappropriate moments.
Causing havoc to Slow Dave's ritual.
And no doubt a lot lot more.
Next one is going to be interesting. Dave S and I are going to have to set up the Guild on our own on Friday as neither Dave nor Rob will be there until late Friday night.
Sometimes wish there was a gap in between the Moots.
