    What a great night!

    Thanks to PGoH for the skulls to host the harrower. I hope everyone had an awesome time. Sorry I didn't have time for screenshots! I really gotta DL a screenshot utility.




    Thanks also go to Kasaven for the awesome event in Fel. I think we all appreciate having an event in Fel that allows for some fun PvP. :thumbup:
    More please.

    I'd just like to turn it around and say thanks to NmE especially. It was an honor to fight at your side.

    And thanks to AZN. It takes guts to try to play the bad guy against overwhelming odds, but gave us a chance to get the "full" Fel experience. (That's me in the red tunic in the middle of that page. I think I was about to die again...)

    Man I wish I could have attended this. D: Got a new screenshot utility I wanted to test out. But somehow being in Fel on internet connection that seems worse than dial up...didnt sound like a good idea.

    Ill make sure to be there for the next type event. ^_^

    Thanks for the fun...

    Even, if all I saw at the harrower was many alliance members being killed (see picture above) by those that gave their word that would defend...

    In the end of the night all I saw was... dishonour.


    Fun... but sneaky dishonour...


    Killing someone 15 times... at a public spawn... it is quite the Fel experience... :thumbup1:

    If at one of our Harrowers we would have all the guests killed... boy, we would be attacked in these boards by everyone and their mommas...


    Anyhow... you took the bait... killed my TB character... and left the Uss alone... :grouphug:

    The pvp part of the event was fun, but I must say it was extremely frusturating to have this bone demon run around like a giant beetle when you first hit it and hit you for 130+ damage randomly hahaha.

    Overall it was a great event full of fun. But I don't think people who don't pvp would have found ANY fun at all. I had to actually ICQ some of those types of people and tell em to come back when we had everyone on the other side of the wrong mountain pass so they could kill things :p

    They sure did.

    What do you think Felucca is? Candy land? Wait, probably not... Else you'd be there... wait.

    Wait, are you saying I knew you guys were going to raid?
    Because that isn't true. Even Katherine knows that.

    If you're asking if NME knew that RICE planned to raid the answer is no.
    I tried to ICQ Nystul before the event and didn't get an answer.
    Azn Kid left vent when I gated my guild in to help. He had expressed that he didn't agree with my protecting the event, but in no way was I informed that they would actually raid. I thought Nystul and Katherine had a closer friendship.

  16. I'm glad that we were able to host this sort of event, and we are extremely thankful to those who helped defend and protect us (NmE and the TB Crowd), as it was a great night full of fun. We started a bit rocky, we had a very strong middle, and the raid from AZN gave us a rough patch, but with the assistance of NmE and a few of the TB, we were able to clear and hold them off while we finished the harrower.

    Sure we died, but how many times do we go to EM events and die constantly and end with nothing? Most of the people I spoke to who participated got at least some sort of stat scroll.

    Noone knew that AZN was going to raid, and while it wasn't exactly 'welcome', It did give me a thrill of fighting for something that I'd worked hard for, which made the final win all the more enjoyable. I'm sorry for those who don't share the same feeling, but I and almost all I spoke to had great fun.

    Also, keep in mind that you only lose half the insurance amount to a pvper as you do to monsters, so you would've had to die 2x as many times at the harrower to PK's as you would to any monster in the game to lose the same amount of gold.

    I don't think it was a night of Dishonor at all; I think if anything, Honor prevailed. I saw several instances where in confusion those of us attacking the harrower accidentally attacked one of our NmE or TB protectors, and the protectors did not retaliate, even after several of these attacks. I saw people who are normally at each others throats working together to help provide the entire shard with a night of enjoyable fun. I saw a massive effort to protect everyone to the best of peoples abilities, and it was an amazing night.

    I can sum it all up however in a few words.

    Can't wait till the next one. Expect it in early spring. May Honor Guide and Bind you!

    It was such easy pickings for red necros to roll in there and stand next to the mountain of blues and wither spam them down. I tried telling everyone before hand to keep the reds out of the spawn area because of course they are at the spawn area to With Spam/EQ all the blues down in about 5 seconds.

    One necro with protect on can easily smoke 20-30 pvms just standing there saying all kill at the harrower in a pile. For them to not panic and go after Nystul immediately was ********.

    While trying to tell them to beware of this I was reprimanded in the global flame (I mean chat) by Katherine. I promptly told her that I as well would attend the event to kill one person only. >:) She promptly informed me she is a very adept stealther and doubted my skills.

    Needless to say it was that much funnier as I stood in the center of a 3 tile bridge and she got revealed trying to pass me and I promptly slaughtered her. My job was then done and I joined in the hunt for Nystul. Which never goes well when fighting in choke points with 2 opposing factions trying to drop fields at one other group.

    All the same it was a fun night over all especially the pvp event in fel. It would've been better if AZN/RICE werent in SL along with NME since they ended up teaming up on us...or atleast Flutter, Ramon, and Zyander all came on stealthers to rk lol.

    CIA opted to make it a guild fight and dispensed the other TBs to the casino night while the big boys played at Wrong. And by dispense I mean kill until they got the hint :).

    Hopefully more of these nights are to come!

    I received a named blue sword at the event and donated it to my friend who runs a museum in Zento.

    The sword will find a prominent place of honor in the Catskills Museum. I wanted to publicly thank my friend for donating this sword and offer anyone else an "open bid" for any other item that come from our shards events. Too many times our items are cross sharded away and NO ONE will get to see them again. I've taken great expense to try to end this, so any consideration on your part to help keep them here would be wonderful.

    I had Nystul and Co., members of CIA, and others over for a preview of the redesign and will have it public very soon.

    The event was a smash success. Probably will go down as one of my most memorable post AOS days. Harrower went well considering Brutus tendencies and the Pit Lord, well he was a b*tch especially when there was a red dragon bitin my arse. But I'm proud to have gotten the kill shot on this Pit Lord, just embarrassed about the several hundred thousand in gold lost from insurance.

    On a side note: I lost an imbued ring at the event that I paid dearly for. Ep 20 hci and dci 13 fire 13 di 22

    I was on Loki and died to RICE, if it can be returned, I'll pay a finders fee. Hopefully my honor in this game will pay off and it'll be returned. I know it'll be tempting to keep it, it's a hella nice ring.

    Pretty easy to craft a ring like that now.

    Unfortunately I could not make it for the PGoH sponsored Harrower as I do not get on until after I put the little one to bed. I can't wait for the next one! I did however make it for the middle of the EM Event. That was a complete blast and thank you very much EM Kasaven, I hope more events are hosted in Felucca, it makes for a really fun dynamic.

    Somehow I managed to only die twice (and this was to the Pit Lord not the opposing factions) so I consider this a win for me. *praises stealth*

    Looking forward to seeing everyone next time.
