Gothpakgok's Obituary: The Death of a Legend - By Roirdei
Today, the 12th Day of the Month of the Goddess' Death, one of the
greatest Dragons the lands of Medievia have ever seen was brutally put
to death, in his 471st day of existence. A huge group of 70 hero and
non-hero Dragon Hunters, led among others by Urimar and Danitak,
launched an attack upon Gothpakgok, the Gold Dragon, in its 3rd lair,
which incidentally proved to be its last.
Faced with an assault of such magnitude, the beast had no choice but to
flee its lair, seeking revenge upon the hapless denizens of Circle of
Power Clan Town. The group of hunters, transcending old clan and town
rivalries, methodically tracked down Gothpakgok and ruthlessly sent
wave upon wave of attackers at him, until one final Shockwave, cast by
Agria, sent the creature into eternal slumber.
After having taken their share of the Dragon's hide (10 pieces each),
the brave Dragon Hunters, perhaps a bit over-zealous due to their
surprisingly easy victory over the monster, decided to see how far
their luck would take them and promptly set off for the lair of
Zeksagmak, the Ruby Dragon and most fearsome creature to have ever
walked the land.
While the first carrion crows started to peck at Gothpakgok's abandoned
carcass, the hunters waited patiently as a bit of divine intervention
cleared up a rather suspicious rock build-up blocking the entrance to
the Ruby Dragon's lair. Perhaps this should have been seen as an omen,
for, after an arduous descent, the 100 participants in the attack were
mercilessly slaughtered by the lair's owner, his Ruby Dragon's breath
and mighty tail bringing their lives to a sudden halt.
Thus ended Gothpakgok's illustrious career in Medievia, with 481 Player
Kills and over 1 million hit points of damage dealt. Although he is
still far behind Zeksagmak (who incidentally achieved with the recent
attack a score of over 2000 PKs), it is somewhat sad to note that
only in death did Gothpakgok finally attain an equal number of lairs
as his ruby-skinned rival.
Funeral services will not be held as no volunteers could be found to
dig a grave big enough for the massive corpse or to serve as casket-
bearers, but a special mass will be held at Gothpakgok's final resting
place so that those who fell victim to the beast over the years may
pray, reminisce, and gloat.
