    The Battle on Horseshoe Island.


    What started of the same as any other day, quickly turned into chaos as Lord Casca and His Minion, Trubo Siaus set forth invasions through the black gates to the various strong holds of the so called traitors. The next target... Horseshoe Island, home to Cartel for many generations back.

    Now those that know Cartel, know they very ferociously defend their island. It's not safe for even a reporter to come onto the island unannounced.

    SI has managed to place a house on the Island a claim they make fairly and with the understanding of Cartels history. This day the house would prove useful to them to fight the invasion forces, but Cartel had other ideas. They wanted none of the help they merely wanted to fight for their island themselves, and as such began a tremendous battle between the two sides. As for who won and how the battle waged, I can only guess, being an outsider to such things. Sadly I had to leave long before the boss of the invasion was dead, so I know not of that outcome either.

    Following are some pictures I managed to snap while also running for my lil reporter life, hehe. I had a blast even for all the deaths, and hope I managed to give the appropriate people their counts.

    A sight probably never viewable again, at least not in red, hehe.

    I'd like to thank both sides for their support of this reporter. It's been a blast covering these events.

    Sadly I must say goodbye to the reporter badge as RL has reared it's ugly head and made reporting very difficult. Thank you Baja for the good run. I'll still be around, but reporting is something that requires more time then I have right now. See you all on the battle field!!

    Great report, Ori ... And, it's been great to have you on the reporting staff this past couple of years. Thank you for giving so much of your time!

    And, I know you're going to be around as the Moderator of the forum, and in game, so it's not like you're saying goodbye. :)

    And you look so good in 'red' (even if it's changling form), maybe this should be your next UO adventure. ;)

    If you keep it feminine and matching, you'll more than tempt her to go try it out! ;)

    *Shakes the mind pic of Veral X-dressing out of her head* Where was I? Oh yeah! Ori (lovingly known as Mama 2), I will miss your reporting so much. We have always had the best reporters, IMHO, and though I'm so grateful for the ones we will keep, I'm sad to see you go. I laughed IRL at the pics you took of the Horseshoe Island battle. Thank you for a job well done and good luck in all your future UO endeavors. *deep curtsy to a woman who is adored*

    Oriana thank you for giving of your time to report on Baja events, fostering, and promoting community spirit.

    I'm going to get a little vulnerable to my Fel enemies (slash) buddies here but it will be worth it. Don't know if you remember but when I returned to the game almost a year ago I wanted to grow my own orange petals (yes I wanted to grow plants! :) ) but had no clue how the whole plant growing thing worked. You helped me out with several posts here on Stratics in the plants forum.

    hehe... now my enemies have ammo for verbal cheap shots when we PvP :sword:

    woohooo!! :thumbsup:

    I appreciate you on a general scale as well as personal. Glad you'll still be roaming the halls of Baja...
