Wode is for me!
A long day of gaining experience towards my next class was to culminate
in one last adventure with a group of adventures from across the land.
I had met some of them before, others I had not. Many answered my call
and so it was quickly decided to go to the dangerous woods of Spiderwode!
One member of our group, Jyl, had recently suffered humiliating
defeat in CPK, and so was forced to attempt and regain his former glory
that is herodom by xping with us. Although he was just shy of being a
hero, his equipment must have not been fully replaced as he was proving
to be an average tank for our group. Nonetheless our group was making
good time killing spiders and trees, getting plenty of xp to go around,
and having a fine time.
Soon a lightning storm was seen
approaching in the distance. This did not concern us as it would give
many of us a chance to harness the energy of the storm and call down
bolts of lightning to smite our enemies. However something that has
been known to happen during these storms...happened. While taking down
a particularly maniacal tree, he would not stop laughing at us, a bolt
of lightning from the storm struck next to me, right onto Jyl. Quickly
our group healed him and he was soon out of danger. Breathing a sigh of
relief, we were unprepared for what happened next. Another bolt of
lightning struck on my other side, as a reliable form mate was struck to
the dreaded 0% hp. Our group was not able to react as fast this time
and our friend was struck down by a the chanting of a tree.
finally proved himself as more than dead weight when he pulled out the
mystifying gem of souls, chanted a few muddled words, and our formie
quickly rose from the dead! While he was doing this one of Jyl's close
friends and clannies, Viridi, decided to stop in. We assumed he had
been summoned by Jyl to help us xp, or perhaps to res us - although it
was odd since Jyl had his own gem, but since he lost all of his eq
before it would not have surprised us if he had lost the gem as well.
Sadly that was not the case.
Instead of helping, Viridi,
Jyl's equal in usefulness, cast 1 shockwave on our previously fallen
formmate who had not been fully healed yet, and burst him into pieces.
While Viridi seemed to think this was funny, I asked Jyl to relay to him
that in my opinion there was only a certain type of person who would
have found that funny, which I can not repeat here. The next thing came
as no surprise to anyone - Jyl said he thought it was funny to.
Confirming my suspicions of him, and after a long day of already gaining
the bounty of xp throughout Medievia, I decided to call an end to our
adventure into the Wode. In the end it did not surprise me that those
two found something so mundane as killing someone with 50 hps for no
reason at all funny. Jyl has 6 cpk kills and 9 deaths. Viridi is
batting .500 with 7 cpks and 7 cpk deaths. Jyl has 201 pks, and 360 pk
deaths, while Viridi is slightly above .500 with 227 pks and 196 pk
deaths. I can only assume the desperation to increase a pk count was
the driving point behind this attack and it has taught me a valuable
lesson - You can't trust Jyl or Viridi.
