    Fellow dwellers of our fair land!

    As you may have heard, the rumours are true; Daemon Scouts. carrying gloating parchments declaring their intent to attack have been defeated around most of our major cities! But what of this cryptic warning?

    "A Piece Of Parchment - *Written in blood with long, flowing lines* Brothers, our search has come to an end. Prepare yourselves, for Sunday evening we strike!"

    It is my firm belief that the search has been for the Mysterious Crystal that is now displayed in the throne room of Castle British. With this in mind, I suggest we prepare an ambush for these fiends... what ever else they may intend, or how little or how strong they come in force, we should give them a display of courage and determination that will make other facets wish they were here with us that day!

    Thus I suggest we gather at Castle British to lay down legal barricades, prepare lines of fire, and ready ourselves to receive them before hand. My presumption is hostilities will begin at the normal time of 8pm GMT, when the sun has started to set an evil likes to go abroad... but they could be any time, so Sunday Afternoon we should consider starting to arrive at the throne room. I and any Sosaria Red Cross members I can round up will attempt to set up a resurrection station in one of the side rooms on the ground floor... Not the throne room itself, as I suspect this will indeed be their target. Seek ye the sign of the red cross if you die! Whether our fair monarch will join us, I cannot say, but everything beyond the drawbridge should be defended with every drop of our blood regardless!

    In an enclosed area like the castle, it would probably help if people get themselves into somewhat organised teams, have designated healers/casters etc in them, and trust them to do the job. Otherwise we get people targetted by daemons running off like headless chickens and dragging the daemons into people who are either recovering from, or not yet ready to handle this sort of 'present'.

    And as for anyone who drags a daemon into the SRC healing point... :twak:
    Be sure your chances of being healed in the future, forever, are precisely zero as far as I'm concerned if you do that sort of trick...

    It's not as if it'll save you, so don't be a total jerk, we'll get you back on your feet fast enough if you do get killed.... and for finding bodies if you have one bring your Undertaker's Staff, otherwise remember (in classic client at least - no clue about this new-fangled shiny thing many people seem to use ;) ) ctrl-shift brings up a lot of object handles, including your corpse, and you can right-click on the ones that you don't want to clear them off your screen and find your own body.

    I'll be there with my GD, and plan to stand next to him and any other pets hitting a daemon and heal anything on our side as fast as I can - as for players, if I get chance and have a health bar up when someone gets poisoned I'll try throw an arch cure their way, but it's going to be crowded, chaotic and probably laggy, so you really are best off in parties who can cover for each other.

    At least this time I cannot get lost! I'll be there too, Assuming this is like all other shard events at the end of it we'll all be able to get a neat reward. So I'd try stay till the end. :)

    With a bit of luck, I might actually be able to attend this for a change. I can't go work til the stye goes away!

    The daemon scouts are going down nicely with a coupla GD's, as long as the tamers work together vetting (it's been a pleasure, Jacob and Curunir :) ) and archers are quite effective too. Just don't forget your orange petals! Oh, and their weakest resist seems to be energy, then cold.

    From what I'm reading, there is indeed a reward; win or lose, click the Mysterious Crystal for a short time after the event ends for a prize... oh ye more mercenary peoples of Britannia, there is renumeration for your efforts! Make sure to come fight alongside us then, we shall need even the grubbiest and graspingist of hands today!

    Untrue! You will not be renumbered, no matter how much you may want to be! You might be remunerated though, if you prefer being paid.... ;)

    10 possible minutes to go; turn Left at the throne room, head south, and we have a hospital set up there... and good luck everybody!

    Confused by retreat command in middle of fight to learn about stolen crystal and receiving empty replica as payment for killing rest of invaders.
