The Triumph of Light 8 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 14  
Another excellent event. I have to say I was quite surprised by the firmness, I think this event was tougher over all than the most of the HQ's I've been on.
Very challenging and fun though. Nice to have clear goals throughout and the build up to the final battle was great.

Many thanks to refs, monsters and fellow party members for a great atmosphere. I think you could tell that some of us aren't quite as young as we once were and the player base was a little quiet due to fatigue at times.

Some favourite moments:

Quote of the event
------------------
Pat: "A Nov broke my leg"
Me: <surprised> "What?! A Nov broke your leg???"
Pat: "Well, it WAS a Nov, Bonebreak..."


* Murdering my way through the Oracle of Thor encounter while immune to the standard damage of Shocking Grasp 5 due to the Valkyrie's helmet.

* Being part of the group for the Weyland challenge of 4 v 4 combat. Go team!

* Attacking the oracle of Loki and managing to hit him a bunch of times before he put me in the dirt with a couple of sneaky Psi-bolt 8's and then disabled all my limbs. Any similarities of Loki to a certain black-and-white-faced assassin are purely coincidental I'm sure.

L8R,
Adam.

Well I had a great time and it really reminded me that I enjoy monstering and must try to find more time to do some more next year even with a potentially broken rib!

High Points:

* Yes Uncles Pats rather nonchalant "well it was a Nov Bonebreak" nearly finished my off during that battleboard.

* Talking to Yarp and Narp about "the Arm Game" and watching them scramble to find numerous sneaky, clever and downright cheating ways of winning! If only they were that effective on the important things

* Wigs glorious wigs!

* Hearing the party laughing every time out even after some absolutely hellacious beatings, a really nice feeling as a monster.

* Playing Odin and being given beer. The 'tash wasn't quite as pleasant the next day though

* In the same fight, Robins norse Heeeeealer, I was glad I had the beard to hide the giggles.

Superb game, bring on more.

I would also like to thank a cheerful party, an enthusiastic monster crew, Les for helping to bring the dungeon to life and Bruce for authoring and running what I found a most enjoyable event.

I had a great time throughout but some favourite moments/things included

- the party wondering who had thought about attractive men (and looking suspiciously at Khortaz) when Baldur the Beautiful arrived instead of the God they were after

- Zug insisting that oaths just lasted a spells duration and hearing about Kal's "oath store" (once a day can pop out an oath)

- Zug telling the violent locals that they should fight "Mr Terrifying", followed by a velvet-clad drow speeding out of the yurt, cloak streaming behind him, to a place of safety

- the Vere being booted off Valhalla, yay

- accents (esp Robin's healer) and wigs (esp Martin)

- Loki, and Kal making the mistake of saying that he didn't notice the difference between nice & nasty Loki, causing Loki to turn round and decide he would have to be nastier - doh!

- Sister Mary coming up with unexpected ideas that delighted yArp and nArp, and their vocals in her invocation book "the sun is warm, not like beer, which is cold and not like the sun"

- the excited dire wolf whom the party stood and watched bark and then run through their midst repeatedly, knowing they had no chance of catching him

- Silas's comments while Kal was tending Khortaz on the last day - BAD baron!!

Lol, I am older than said Dire Wolf's father. There was no way I was going to run after him.

One of the best things about Ki is that you can resist invocations like Fear and Terror so you don't have to run around in the sand.

L8R,
Adam.

A truly excellent event.

I agree with Toshiro that it was a bit firm, but most enjoyable nonetheless. Remarkable roleplaying by the monsters

It was good that I was able to understand what was going on all the time, and why we were doing things.

Thanks to the rest of the party, and to the wonderful monsters & refs.

hello all.

thanks for an excellent game. loved monstering it, thank you players for such a good game. i enjoyed all the rp. thanks to the refs for the great battles. it was excellent. thanks to corina. loved the food.

fav moments.

whole thing.

the intimidation time as agoth when holding tersius pats youll pay for that thing. nice one.

being one of thors minions and elementals so i could practice magic and make it more interesting for the party.

matt, choi and alex all running through nettles getting lost first night and having to time out ourselves for safety then getting beat on it after.

the last battle fighting as both agoth and jarls blokes.

Narp and Yarp having a laugh stopping me been serious cause i couldnt stop myself laughing.

the 4 v 4 battle champions with toshiros piece of role play before and baron then rushing up behind to cast a death spell when i never saw him.

waiting for the party to work out the fraya shrine cause it was cool.

I also enjoyed the event... it was hard and due to the amount of monsters was probably not the best situation as an archer and dagger using type

I enjoyed the split on the first night, and the plot seemed easy enough to follow which is always nice.

Looking forward to the next two.

To paraphrase Bruce - it's not so much it was firm, rather we've become soft. =)

Had a great time, the splits weren't over-done; excellent realisation of the Oracles, so nice to have a 'puzzle' type thing to do.
Thanks to the monster crew for their roleplaying and some tasty fights.

Cheers
