    This Saturday we will be doing a shard champion crawl where we will be working our way through the various champ locations in the Lost Lands. The event will be mainly in support of shard newcomers and all shard vets are encouraged to offer scrolls and gold to the NEW members or other bona fide rookies who take part in each hunt.

    Start time will be 10am Eastern (7am Pacific, 2pm UK, 3pm CET). Meeting point before and after each spawn will be Skara bank. Please do not start working a spawn before the main party arrives as we do not want the unskilled folk to miss out on the easier first levels. The current progress and location of the event will be updated in this thread, but you can of course just ask in general chat.

    Upon completion of each spawn, gold will be pooled and divided among the newcomers. Power scrolls & SoTs will be offered to the newcomers firstly on the basis of who actually can use them. All unclaimed 110/115 scrolls will be saved for NEW. Replicas/rewards will remain the property of whomsoever received them.

    Upon completion of the final champion hunt, we hope to finish off with a harrower.

    All members of the community are invited to attend, whether to actually kill spawn or just to help heal/equip newcomers. Any new shard member of any level of ability is encouraged to join in, even if you just wish to loot monsters or farm leather. We can provide basic equipment as needed.

    Hope to see you there.

    Current Location: Finished!

    Completed............Type...............120 scrolls (won by)
    Khaldun..................Rats................none
    City of Dead............Spiders............120 bushido (Agra-lem)
    Marble....................Spiders............120 lore (Carolyn)
    Damwin...................Demons...........none
    Oaks.......................Fey................120 tactics (Agra-lem)
    Ice East..................Rats...............120 magery (Merielle)
    Desert....................Dragons............none
    Oasis.....................Demons.............none
    Hopper's Bog...........Spiders.............120 peacemaking (unclaimed)
    Tortoise.................Undead.............120 vet (Linda Pen)
    Terra Sanctum*........Rats................none
    Ice West.................Undead............120 taming (Silent Death)
    Harrower.................Covetous..........4x25 (Linda, Silent, Agra-lem, Albertus)

    * Sets the official Siege record rat spawn time of 11 minutes, 4 seconds.


    Rewards
    Swamp tile [Aislinn at Khaldun]
    Oblivion's Needle [AEowyn at Marble]
    Most Knowledgeable Person robe [AEowyn at Desert]

    The last time we did this it took around 16 hours I think, although that included an extra Oaks and harrower. That is why we are starting fairly early.

    Don't know if this will be important to anyone or not, but it sounds as if Lord Oaks is buggy. Killing him may give you points on the side of the bane chosen and make you lose points on the side of the ophidians and/or meer.

    More info here in UHall: http://vboards.stratics.com/uhall/237781-oaks-side-bane.html.

    I had an absolute blast at the three spawns I was able to attend. Thank you so much for organizing this!

    Also, I took screen shots before and after we finished killing Lord Oaks to confirm how bad the loyalty hit was. As you can see, it was very minor, maybe because we had such a nice big crowd.

    great crawl siege .

    id like to thank everyone who joined us , especially you faction guys .
    some people could have been a serious problem , but werent .

    we had some good cooperation . even when each others summons and pets wanted to duke it out . i think we did a good job keeping them apart.

    personally i got nuked , but. i only lost an old suit that couldnt be imbued anyway . so its all good . :thumbup1:

    was a fun run . we'll have to do it again .

    Great job Hoffs.
    Also a huge thank you to all who participated especially St. Dismas, always fun having a red about to give you a bit of a scare.

    I must say this truly was a shard wide event and the turnout was incredible.

    For anyone who missed it there will be more to come and I have a ton of T maps and fishing nets to toss should a smaller party of noobs wish some fun.

    Great job all and thanks to everyone who turned up for the event. What was particularly encouraging was that we actually seemed to have a better response this time around than we did back in 2008.

    Special mention to (I think) Agra-lem, Aislinn and Raptor for sticking with it from start to finish, and to reporter Lady Dreama for covering the event for Stratics.

    I have a mailbox on the steps of my tower south of luna just west of the road right by the elf brigand spawn. Or you can drop them in Shalimars mailbox at NEW.

    Here's the first video to finish, it's the spawn we did on terra sanctum, 11:04 from the first kill till baracoon hit the floor. Audioswap is in progress, may not have sound yet.

    Great video and I loved the old silent movie soundtrack you put to it. I will put an extra martie in my pack to be stolen for any thieves out there. I do try to keep at least one item on me at all times that is well worth stealing.
