    Hail Fellow Archers & Friends,

    Loco, Orion, & Aerowyn heeded the "call of the HuntMaster (Zurakin)," and sent forth word by Guild and Alliance Chat that our mission this night would be to summon forth the Sleeping Dragon Spawn of Tokuno in hopes of goading its Champion, Serado, to show his reptilian skin.

    As the 1st official Guild Hunt in many a moon, a small turnout while unfortunate, was not totally unexpected. Nevertheless, undaunted, the small band of Archers remained resolute in challenging the lizardmen, deathwatch beetles, kappas, lesser hiryus, revenant lions, oni's, hiryus, and finally Serado (father of all ugly yamandons & reptiles).

    The altar was approached & the challenge issued...the spawn began. The small band or Archers began firing volley after volley into the hordes of lizardmen, kappa's and deathwatch beetles. Candles began appearing upon the Altar and soon lesser hiryus & revenant lions joined the battle. Occassionally the archers would disperse, returning narrowly ahead of a storm of following spawn. Then they closed ranks, cutting down the evil creatures with rapid volleys of deadly arrows & bolts. Effortlessly they changed their weapons to most effectively challenge their foes...reptile slayers...undead slayers...demon slayers...and each Archers chosen bow of widest use. Hiryus & Oni's were the final pairs to join the fray. Amazingly, as yet none of the Archers had tasted death, though blood, poison, gore, & corpses littered the landscape.

    The going was now increasingly difficult. Healing, cross-healing, and coordinated volleys of arrows & bolts were all needed to keep one another alive. Lady Sex Kitten, having arrived late but just in the nick of time may well have been the one who "turned the tide" in our favor.

    Just when I feared my supply of arrows & bolts was too small, Zurakin shouted out "Champ Has Spawned!" Quickly Serado was drawn north of his Altar...he mistakenly thought he was persuing us...however, when we turned the table upon him, and circled him upon all sides, only then did I see a hint of concern in his eyes. Baccuas of UTB, our last late arrival was instrumental in distracting Serado as volley after volley of arrows took a massive toll upon him until.....


    I witnessed these events, and saw only 2 deaths from start to finish. The Society of Archers is serving notice, we are rejoining the battle. Evil creatures will be sought out in coming weeks, month's, and years.

    If you cherish Archery and the Bow, seek us out. Join us!
  2. Well done brave warriors! May glory be yours!
