    After months of gratuitous and maddening slaughter of headless miners, today, on my 5128th kill, the 528th kill of the day, I pried a golden mining implement out of the cold, dead fingers of headless miner.

    Of course, my quest has been for the golden pickaxe, which is the ugliest thing I have ever laid my eyes on.
    And of course, after all this madness and long sessions of headless slaughtering, the RNG would play a trick on me and handle me this bloody, ugly shovel! :mad:

    *sigh*
    So the quest is far from over, and was stopped today at the 5,300th kill. More headless miner slaughter to be performed tomorrow.
    This will only end when I get the bloody pickaxe, or they run out of headless miners to spawn.

    If I'm not mistaken, there's two facings of them? If you get both you can X em and make good deco!

    Yes, Uriah.
    But while I am very insane, I am not insane enough to want the complete set with two pickaxes and two shovels. :p

    Fine, fine...
    It seems I will only be able to stop when I have killed dozens of thousands of headless miners... my poor mind.

    As expected, the madwoman didn't give up after the first failure, and kept going on her quest. A quest of madness!

    And today, on the 8,648th kill... there it was... the ugliest thing ever...
    "It's mine, my own... my precioussssss..." Said the madwoman.

    And here it is. The bloody, ugliest pickaxe I have ever laid my eyes upon.
    And it is mine, my own, my precioussssss... Just like with Smeagol, It came to me...
    It was my birthday present... albeit if a bit late.... and it too involved murder to get.
    But it is my PRECIOUSSSSSS!!!! *gollum gollum*

    Congrats Zath, I'm so proud of you and so happy for you. That pickaxe is just beautiful and will look lovely when you can make an X with them both. :) That was quite an adventure, we've all been watching and waiting and it's so fitting because 1), it was just your birthday, and 2), we're all our fishing to try to win one.

    *A shrill of happiness rose over the lands as the headless miners surrendered their prize.* She blinked as she heard the sound carried by the wind over the sea. She smiled and offered her Congratulations into the wind so they might be carried back to the one who had accomplished her quest. A witch had ways of knowing things even when she was no where near ya know *wink* (Many Congrats Zath Great job !)
