    Tonight the Royal Guard were called to the Counsellor's Hall in Britain to hear a creep story from Nathan Hawke. A large audience awaited for Nathan and his story.

    [​IMG]

    Nathan arrived at 8oclock and began part one of the story.



    Just as Nathan was about to find out who stood behind the door, Alarm bells rung out from Vesper! Nathan opened a gate to the Graveyard just near Vesper.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Gravestones began oozing with blood as a group of rotting corpses wondered the graveyard.

    [​IMG]

    When the rotting corpses had been slain an unknown spirit was seen floating inbetween the graves.

    Nathan began to chant Dorians name, The guard joined in... DORIAN!

    [​IMG]

    Everyones eyes span from Nathan to the Unknown Spirit as the spirit said..'You know my name?'.

    The guard let Dorian, The unknown spirit, Step forward.

    After some thought, Mages began to cast bless on the blood oozing gravestones.

    [​IMG]

    Suddenly a gate opened, The guard entered.

    [​IMG]

    Through the gate, The room where Mericles' corpse once lay. Inside, The room was filled with risen mummy guardians.

    [​IMG]

    Once they had been killed another moongate appeared.

    [​IMG]

    Through the second moongate a maze of caverns and tunnels. Bloodsucking Bats filled the first cavern.

    [​IMG]

    Through the next room, What can only be described as the Smoke Monster from Lost, Only Green, Awaited.. The Essence of Death... Guardian!

    [​IMG]

    The Essences of Death were very hard to kill, However didn't do too much damage back, So deaths were quite low.

    [​IMG]

    In the final cavern Nathan Hawke asked Leo Madsen, Of Yew, to blow the place up. With half a finished course under his belt, He began to plant the bomb in an Altar.

    [​IMG]

    At this point the room blows up and Nathan then opened a gate back to the Counsellor's Hall, The guards work was done!

    [​IMG]

    Back at the Counsellor's Hall, Nathan Hawke asked us to meet tomorrow (Thursday 4th November at 8:15pm GMT, 9:15pm Central European Time, 4:15pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York) for the final part of his creepy story.

    [​IMG]

    10 Red Halloween Masks were given out, Like the one Aron above is wearing, Congrats those who received one.

    Slight correction to the story, there was an explosion at the end, but it was over quickly, and didn't fill the screen, maybe only 3-4 explosion graphics wide... I think Emile was listening to my anguished cries about forthcoming Enhanced Client death!

    There were at least 3 masks recovered, as I saw them being worn in the final meeting, but I don't know if all 10 were found, which Emile stated were available. Emile also confirmed they were not just on the Grizzles, which is where I found mine; It was a random chance to be on the corpse on each kill if you got looting rights as usual.


    As a personal aside, I was a little disappointed with how seriously people took the event, especially when the first drop came to me, because of the complaints about favouritism again at the end. It's been a very hard few weeks in real life for me, including a colleague dying at the weekend, so emotionally and attention wise I really wasn't here for this event, hence the idle joking at the start. Whilst I was mildly glad the random number generator favoured me, the only reason people knew I got one was because I was trying to help you all still... I tried to explain to check the corpses, and at the end put it on so you could see it. Mine will not be cross sharded, and will be on public display at my house. But in doing so I drew attention to myself, and by being there physically often enough to get the opportunities I attracted a lot of opprobrium which just makes the game exceptionally unpleasant at times. Later on, I discovered someone has also emptied the Fishing Co-Op of almost all the fish... Europa has, over all, a really good community, but some of you it seems have got a hell of a lot to learn about what really matters in life, and it's not valuing digital items so much that they drive you to trample on the other people behind the screen. Real friends, true connections will follow you from game to game, but when your account lapses, or the servers go off for the final time, all these items will vanish. You'll just have the memories. And what use are memories of bitterness and greed and paranoia? I certainly don't need them, and I wish some of you wouldn't keep indulging in them.
