Excitedly, we meet EM Topaz at the Britain Hall. Tonight we were going on a shard hunt. I couldn't wait to see what we were hunting. While we waited, vorpal bunnies suddenly appeared.
EM Topaz arrived early and was as excited as we were.
Malakhi: Hello and Evening
EM Topaz: Hello everyone!
Tamais : greetings
Gold Rush: hail
EM Topaz: I am a full minute early!
KYD: i c
Tamais : *laughs*
Giles: kill things?
EM Topaz: We could
EM Topaz: Do any peerless we feel like doing
EM Topaz: Or we could do the guantelet I bet you havent been there in a while
EM Topaz: Or
EM Topaz: We could do the turtle spawn
EM Topaz: or some spawn in fel if you want to get scrolls
EM Topaz: Or we could kill crimson dragons all night
EM Topaz: And this isn'
EM Topaz: Isn't part of our story line
EM Topaz: this is just a shard hunt for fun
EM Topaz: *tilts head to the side*
EM Topaz: We are looking for something we could all do together
Tamais : since we can't always get large groups
KYD: turtle works for me
EM Topaz: Umm we could do slashers
EM Topaz: we could do any combination of any of them
Sphinkter: ew something that drops garg armor please
EM Topaz: Let me hear some suggestions what do you all think
EM Topaz: We could go flatten Shame or another dungeon
KYD: turtle good, kotl would be fun
Demoss: slasher time
Giles: slasher always good, shimmering
Thalia: you could toss random hard monsters as a way to caliberate future event monsters
Giles: the champ spawn in beldam or labrynth
EM Topaz: oooo you guys want to try to get the champ up in the labreyth?
Tamais : wow that is one i've not done
Demoss: ah tormented minitaurs
EM Topaz: Right on then Lets go kill some stuff!
EM Topaz: I am gonna rummage for the coordinates so I can gate us
And away we went. I decided the safest way for me was to travel in stealth.
EM Topaz: Ok we all set?
Duke: u go first
EM Topaz: Fire em up I think we are gonna rip this dungen apart!
<10414493>EM Topaz: Double click the door to get inside
<10414493>EM Topaz: Kill everything that isn't us!!!
Luckly for several of us, healers began to appear
<10414493>EM Topaz: Gary here is a res as well
<10414493>EM Topaz: Forbes here will res you
As large as our group was, we moved pretty fast to the spawn area.
<10414493>EM Topaz: Several over here
<27329495>Demoss: where does it take you?
<10414493>EM Topaz: hmm? Level One!
<10414493>EM Topaz: you guys are doing good see the message on the side of the screen will tell you.
<9591804>Giles: had no idea the spawn was so slow
10414493>EM Topaz: it should pick up, although we have a lot of people here
<9591804>Giles: aye, not complaining, just never relly done it
<26337376>Mylene: hi everyone - where's the chaos?
10414493>EM Topaz: we are presently in the labrynth theres a gate to here at the em hall
<10414493>EM Topaz: level up!<
A minotaur captain barks an order to his fellow scouts, "Aid the others! Kill the invaders!"
<9591804>Giles: they must have slow messengers
<29304172>KYD: uh nooo
Because the spawn was so slow. It was decided to do a turtle spawn.
EM Topaz: Everyone gather round
<10414493>EM Topaz: Everyone I am inside near the spawn if you see me please gather round
ChocolateThunder: something else
Crypto: something else.
EM Topaz: Ok lets go meet back at the EM hall ok
<10414493>EM Topaz: Everyone lets go meet back at the EM Hall there is a gate right outside
EM Topaz: I got a couple of requests to do the Turtle spawn
EM Topaz: Want to do that or Slasher?
After some discussion EM Topaz came up with a great comprise.
EM Topaz: How about we do the turtle and then go do slasher.
EM Topaz: I think with this many people the turtle will go fast
<10414493>EM Topaz: when you are finished looting come to the alter everyone
Though I died a couple of times, our group quickly finished off the Dragon Turtle. Then we were off to Slasher.
<10414493>EM Topaz: wow you guys are killing him fast! Let's do a couple of these ss
<10414493>EM Topaz: lets do a few of these then maybe go back and kill the turtle again
79495>Tamais : sounds lilke a plan
<10414493>EM Topaz: body is EAST
EM Topaz: Moved it east so you wouldnt die loooting
Tamais : so thats the bad guy
EM Topaz: Want to kill another or go do turtle?
Tamais : trick or treating is so much safer
Tamais : what ever people want
Sphinkter: thanks for the corpse move
<12779495>Tamais : do we want to do another slasher
<12779495>Tamais : or a turtle?
<10414493>EM Topaz: So what does the shard want more slashers or a turtle
<7290785>Fink u Freeky: more slasher
<7951853>Wat Pomp: slasher slasher slasher
<12779495>Tamais : well he is here.
<10414493>EM Topaz: haha ok I have about 45 minutes so lets murder some more slashers and get some good loot
After several Slashers, we returned to the Dragon Turtle spawn.
EM Topaz: ok guys lets do one more turtle
EM Topaz: then call it a night
EM Topaz: Let me gate us to a moongate
<10414493>EM Topaz: lets meet at Eodon Moongate
<10260135>Panama: where is everyone now?
<10414493>EM Topaz: Brigid do you need help getting your body?
<10414493>EM Topaz: We are at the turtle spawn
EM Topaz: Tamais dont die!
<12779495>Tamais : *laughs* but dying at events is in my job description
<12779495>Tamais : do we have healers?
<10414493>EM Topaz: there is one yellow healer to the south east of the altar
<10414493>EM Topaz: start working your way towards the alter everyone
<10414493>EM Topaz: one more white skull
<10414493>EM Topaz: ooohh we lost em!

EM Topaz: Well, I try to do my best to have something for everyone
Tamais : this was really sweet of you
Sphinkter: was a blast
EM Topaz: Hey I want to do it more often
EM Topaz: At least once a month anyway
After the event broke up, I went to Luna to clean out my backpack and to see the cool Halloween deco EM Topaz had started. Imagine my surprise to find a turtle egg. Now I have a prize for the next event I do.
