Of Turkeys And Ranged Warfare

Postby Marauder » Wed Nov 22, 2017 10:13 pm

Today's even was a whole lot of fun, even if my character spent the first part dead due to foolishness. The following logs should show you why this made my week, based on the fact that I play Gileas as a strictly combat-oriented character as an experiment, basically. Meaning no professions allowed of any kind. Ratings have been censored by way of removal, command inputs have been as well, but energy loss on my end and damage numbers will remain. Also you'll have those symbol indicators to know which way and I left in the "Also here" from me using look to check status. These are not the full logs, mind you.

Gileas was then saved by Balein who I can't not give credit for being a witness and bandaging.

That was one of the most heart poundingly bad ass moments I've had on this game. Lassyn and Vestyn did great and I really appreciate Lassyn for making the bowman do fisticuffs.

The final punch to kill him before passing out is pretty sick.
