Origin Shard Harrower Hosted by "R", Organized by Morgaine Wednesday, September 2, 2009 At 5:30pm Pacific, we all started meeting at a house to await word from Morgaine that "R" had popped the Harrower for us. In addition to "R", Lord Gordon [A.V.] and his super she-dragon, Flower, were on hand to help those who had never been to a Harrower. While we waited, Morgaine gave everyone last minute tips and instructions ... Then we received word ... the Harrower had popped in Deceit. We were off to the unknown for many as this was the first Harrower for several in the group. In preparation for this event, "R" had used blues to set up our outer perimeter so we would be able to easily pass thru their fields to where the Harrower was waiting. A few minutes into the battle EM Faine Morgan arrived. Without meaning to, the arrival of EM Faine provided a lot of humor as someone (who shall remain nameless, okay Lord Gordon?) in our group asked ... "Who is that EM Faine Morgan? Is that a new faction? Should I attack?" As the first Harrower started to lose health, the word went out for everyone to pull their pets off once the Harrower was red-lined. When the True Harrower spawned, those new to the harrower were asked to wait out of range of the tentacles of harrower while those with experience killed took over long enough to kill the tentacles. With the tentacles gone, the group reentered the area to drop the Harrower. EM Faine, quite possibly the most exuberant EM in all of UO, cheered the team on. One all the scrolls were gathered, we headed to the dungeon exit, still wondering if our luck on not being raided was going to hold. Luck was with us! We quickly gated to Luna Bank. While we awaited the arrival of the scrolls, EM Faine did some quick health checks to ensure she had not injured anyone with her EM pompoms. Once the scrolls were delivered to Morgaine at Luna, we went to Nujelm to roll dice for them. The Harrower had dropped eleven +25, two +20, and seven +15 stat scrolls. After the +25's were distributed, there was a dice roll for the 20's. Crystal Canyon [CCC] presented Morgaine with a gift for Caramon. Thank you, Morgaine, everyone from "R", Lord Gordon, and everyone else who helped organize this first ever Origin Harrower event. It was a great success! And thank you, EM Faine Morgan, for taking time out of your currently hectic schedule to come cheer on "Team Origin". ---------------------------------------- Related links: WOOOOOT! WE DID IT!
