    ATTENTION TO ORDERS:

    The Minoc Militia is here by being re-tasked. Stand by for deployment orders!

    While many of the threats we have seen recently have been easily handled by the Royal Britanian Guards the Minoc Militia is to begin deployment exercises to compete with them. In the event of an emergency they will be ready fill in for the RBG. In order to ensure this goal a new assignment and training regiment will be issued to all members of the Minoc Militia.

    Strategies, plans, and resources are already in place to initiate a full scale invasion of Covetous as a training exercise. The Militia's goal is to see the void pool wrestled under control via these maneuvers. Please see your guard captain for deployment orders!


    ~~ OOC Follows ~~

    Siege Perilous has held the Void Pool Banner for too long. They are worthy opponents and we should take the time to try and ring their bell and show everyone that Chesapeake is alive and kicking when it comes to dungeon hunting!

    I've come up with an initial doctrine to tackle the Void Pool in an easy matter (I hope). This wont' be the final version but it's time we put it into use and see how it works.

    An INITIAL meet and greet - No fighting unless you want - Will be held THIS WEEKEND on Sunday at 7:00pm Eastern. We will meet at Stevie the Gypsie's house west of Covetous (Past Pike). This will just be an introduction and a meeting for best practice times.

    We need:
    Sampires
    Throwers
    Archers
    Mages
    Tamers
    Mages
    Melee
    and Sampires

    You will need:
    Ventrillo/Mumble/Teamspeak (TBD)

    I am curious, did you go in and do a round? How many people went?

    I've managed round 22 in Fel. solo, without a slayer weapon. With a slayer, perhaps I'd get to 23 or 24 - the problem for a sampire at the higher levels becomes that you can't hit the stuff because their weapon skill gets well above 100...

    We did! We had about 15 people and we got to round 58. We also didn't properly prepare with the right slayers and extra supplies--this was just a practice. We'll be tweaking our strategy a bit for next time, but we think the general plan is solid.

    We might indeed have to rethink sampires though if that becomes a problem--use all melee warriors cross healing to form the first wall instead perhaps. Even if they aren't hitting, they ARE blocking. The biggest issue a few of us were having was just targeting, which I think we can easily overcome with better macros. I know I'm not used to playing as a team with my sampire, and my usual (lazy) targeting strategy wasn't working too well.

    We will need a Teamspeak Or Ventrillo server for this weekend's attempt. If someone has a server that can take about 15-25 idiot... I mean hard core Dungeon Masters please PM me.

    Perhaps we should discuss the strategy that was settled on... I'm curious what you all came up with, and how I can best fit in (archer, mage, sampire, support bard?)

    Did a practice run this morning, solo, in Fel. First off, had I been in trammel, I probably would have cleared a few more levels. I cruised through the first 23, no problem.

    Then on the 24th I targeted a revenant... and missed on 12 consecutive swings. :facepalm: Since that was the first monster I targeted on that level, I didn't even kill a single thing. I don't even know what to think about that. I have to assume that this represents a big statistical anomaly. Either this revenant was the most badass one ever rolled - 180 wrestle or something; or it has a more typical 130ish... and I just managed to accomplish a 1 in 10k-ish feat.

    I have a mumble server we can use for attempts. I will not be posting the information on how to join here. Ask me in-game/icq :D

    We are goofing off right now, but just an update that we hit wave 50 with just 12-13 or so people.

    If we can get our 20 people out I think we can hit wave 100 at least. Some of our new tactics tonight are making things a lot faster!

    I can't believe I missed it. I was home, sitting on the sofa watching a baseball game killing some time ... and I dozed off. Missed this at 10, was supposed to meet a friend around midnight, missed that too. :(

    Since I decided to sleep a lot and not update this thread I now have a lot of updates for you!
    1. We made it to wave 57 with about 10-12 people (Very nice!)
    2. Based on tonight's practice we have updated the training manual. The biggest addition is that we are now adding a skirmish squad. Sampires are no longer part of the stone wall but instead will do what they do best (solo work) down in the tunnels.

    Time and Life slip away from me sometimes. AND I told Phoenix we would do a Void Pool this weekend.

    Let's meet up Sunday at 1pm Eastern! Spread the news, talk to your friends, and come meet up at the entrance to Covetous Trammel at 1pm!

    *Edit: Moving to Sunday too much going on already on Saturday*
