Everquest

Fun Party Night

Anyone who has travelled with, raided with, spoken with, been part of Sceptered Isle, will probably be able to tell you just how much fun they have. From being a raiding guild in City of Mist (which is when I, Shadowpuma, joined) and coming all the way up to finishing in Ssra Temple with a few Emperor kills and now raiding the big bosses in Vex Thal, Sceptered Isle has always had goals and the right moral to go with them.

This particular evening showed everyone just how much fun could be had. It was time for Sceptered Isle to leave all thoughts of mobs, goals and raids behind then and just let their hair down and have a great time together.

The Venue was set, the level and class of characters was outlined and everyone managed to get there without too much incident. (Dosi, we all know you managed to get your level 1 warrior killed on the way). Lake Rathe Arena, the perfect place to enjoy team events without any outside interruption.

The Theme ... Dwarf vs Vah Shir

With one officer behind all the organisation of the incoming games, Swash, did a tremendous job of giving both surprise and great tuition on how to play the games.


First up was the old British Bulldog themed game, 'Ranger Attack'. All the level 1 characters gathered at the North side of the Arena and the goal was to get to the other side before the ranger, fully armed with Bow and Arrows, could shoot you down. Being the well organised military unit they were, the dwarfs lined up, ready to sacrifice the one (me at the front) for the many (all those cowering behind me).

On the other race, the vah shir were just stood around relaxed like nothing was gonna go wrong.

Swash gave the order to charge ... Out came everyone running with their war cries ...

Rassy says out of character, 'Haway ya wee scunner I'll give ye a face full o' heed!'
Rassy says out of character, 'WAILY WAILY WAILY!'
Rassy says out of character, 'Crivens! I'll give yeh such a kickin'!'
Rassy says out of character, 'Nac Mac FEEGLE!'
Rassy says out of character, 'Come 'ere I'll bite yer bloody kneecaps!'
Rassy says out of character, 'So, it's kick me while I'm down is it? Come here you big fairy'
Rassy says out of character, 'BIGJOBS!'

Ok, so maybe it was only Rassy (Rasuphas) who was shouting out taunts.

Keadiin hits YOU for 86 points of damage.
You have been knocked unconscious!
You have been slain by Keadiin!
Returning to home point, please wait...
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

And so the dwarf at the front was killed leaving the rest to run onwards. Once all were at the other side, it was time to get ready to go back again, and then again, and again, and again, ...

Soon enough all the dwarfs and vah shir were killed leaving one standing. Congratulations Farlig on having your dwarf survive the 'Ranger Attack'.


Next up was a game similar to that of kiss chase. 3 dwarf/vah shir were picked from the bunch of level 1's. All the melee's that were mains logged on and their goal was to 'Hunt the Noobs'. First people to successfully kill one of these level 1's was the winner.

The rules were simple and straight forward enough. The level 1's ran off and hid themselves whilst the level 65 melee's intoxicated themselves with beer and ale. On the command 'Go' the melee were unleashed into the Arena to hunt and kill.

After only a few minutes the cries could be heard ...

Rassy says out of character, 'Farlig killed me'
and then ...
Hestensdorf says out of character, 'Bwahahaah, you cant find me, as long as i got my bottle'
Malatas says out of character, 'Hesved d wn'
and finally ...
Gerdda says out of character, 'Keadiin got me, pure wussy arrows hehe'
Keadiin says out of character, 'Wangers Rock'

And so with 3 winners it was time to reverse the roles. Still 3 newbies, but this time it was casters to get intoxicated and hunt.

Swash says out of character, 'noobs got 30secs, shift yourselfs'
30 seconds pass ...
Swash says out of character, 'ok casters in now '

Shadowpuma says out of character, 'Me got neadiimb'
Keadiinn says out of character, 'Shadow killed me the nasty wiz'
and then ...
Farligdorfroll says out of character, 'Colal got me'
and after a good chase after the ever elusive Molotos ...
Swash says out of character, 'ok colal, shadow and who?'
Cyrint says out of character, 'My pe '

So the finalists had been picked for the final festivities in South Karana after all the Arena Events had been completed, Farlig, Keadiin, Malatas, Colal, Shadowpuma, and Cyrint.


Next Event ... Dwarfs vs Vah Shir

An all out battle between short and tall, hairy and fluffy, team against team. Each race was bound at opposite ends of the Arena.

Shadowpuma says, 'All bound now?'
Badpassion says, 'They done'
Shadowpuma begins to cast a spell.
Drunklokesdorf has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Raamboo has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Stizux has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Molotos has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Wollowdorf has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Farligdorfroll has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Dosiux has been slain by Shadowpuma!
Shadowdorf has been slain by Shadowpuma!

It appeared as they were telling the truth, up popped a whole bunch of dwarfs right before Shadowpuma's eyes.

Drunklokesdorf says, 'KILL SHADOW'

So whilst everyone waited the teams did what they do best ... the dwarfs fought amongst themselves, the vah shir's licked themselves.

Swashy says out of character, 'ok, simple kill fest this, male dwarfs vs female dorfs and kitties'
Swashy says out of character, 'no rules, kill to you bored, go'
Rassy says out of character, 'You can take ooor lives but ye'll ne'er tek oooor beeeer!'

And so the onslaught began.

image: relative to the report

It wasn't long before the whole arena began filling up with corpses, both small and tall. It began to get a bit unfair as the 2 different spawn points were being camped by wizards with their AE Gravity Flux (this time not causing everyone to fly up 50 foot in the air and loose exp). After many minutes of killing and respawn, time was called and the little level 1's were dragged out of the Arena kicking and screaming for more.


Next up ... Capture the Gnome

This game was a bit more complex than the previous ones but still just as enjoyable. Everyone changed from their level 1 alt's into their main characters. The Raid leaders were picked out and had the task of selecting teams. Each Leader picked a person from the LFG in front of them. Orcman was first to pick ...

Orcman says out of character, 'badpasion - we need some crumpet in grp'
Colal says out of character, 'flums'
Orcman says out of character, 'llamikins'
Colal says out of character, 'ras'
Orcman says out of character, 'hesten - we need a tree hugger'
Colal says out of character, 'dosi'
and so on until everyone was on a team ...

Blue Team, Leader - Colal
Red Team, Leader - Orcman

Each team at their end of the Arena guarding their gnome

image: relative to the report
Very clever how the Blueteam gnome had a blue robe and the Redteam gnome had a red robe.

The whistle was blown and off the team went, Blue Team with their strategy to confuse the other side by all appearing as wolves, and the Red Team with their strategy of smacking everyone in sight.

Redteam says out of character, 'Booffa has captured the red gnome!!!!!'
Redteam says out of character, 'Kareoke has captured the red gnome!!!!!'
Blueteam says out of character, 'Malatas has captured the blue gnome!!!!!!'

And so the capturing of the gnomes continued. The only hard part was getting the gnomes back to the base camp before the other side killed the gnome, or even worse ... killed you!

The mass carnage continued for a good while until the final whistle was blown and the end results were given ...

Redteam says out of character, 'ok the results were as follows'
Redteam says out of character, 'both teams killed there gnome once'
Redteam says out of character, 'red team captured the gnome once, blue team got him 4 times, grats blue team'

So with the Blue team winning and time getting on, a few people logged for the evening. There was still however the final event, the finalists made their way to South Karana where they would have their tasks set out for them.


Final Event ... Aviak Tower Climb (drunken)

With one of the finalists vanishing it was left down to the few remaining to listen to the rules and succeed at the task assigned to them. Farlig, Colal, Malatas, Keadiin and Shadowpuma all listened to Mischief as he explained the rules.

The contestant must ask for a number of Brells Blessed Stout
They must then drink ALL of them
Once all have been drunk they are to ascend the narrow walkways of the Aviak Tower
The timer starts once the BBS has been given to the contestant. They have 3 minutes to drink it all and get to the top.
The person that drinks the most and clears the furthest is the winner.

First up was Farlig ...

image: relative to the report
After drinking 20 Brell's Blessed Stout are we sure the ramp will take the weight of a drunken Ogre?

Farlig ran straight up the ramp to the first corner, stopped to gain his balance, turned, began to walk and then ...

image: relative to the report

What a shame, Farlig had drunken too much and fallen off even before the first hut.

Mischief tells the guild, 'bad luck far, attempted 20, got 0 huts'

Next up was Colal.

Mischief tells the guild, 'colal take the posistion and nominate you beers pls'
Colal tells the guild, '13 then'
Colal tells the guild, 'err 14'
Colal tells the guild, 'lol i can only do like 2 before max druink though'
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... Colal takes a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Colal says, 'Lol'

So with still a few to go time was ticking away for Colal. He managed to down the rest and off he set ...

Mischief tells the guild, 'time up'
Mischief tells the guild, 'colal makes hut 3 with 14 inside him'

So the rest followed in the footsteps of the people before them, each person trying something new. Malatas tried the drunken duck approach, but failed by falling off the ramp about halfway up with 15 beers inside of him.

Mischief tells the guild, 'bad luck, looked good'

Keadiin was next, opting for 16 beers, he too fell off at the first corner.

Mischief tells the guild, 'zero for keadin'

Next up was Shadowpuma. Having studied the people before him and using his vast amount of intelligence. When someone is drunk and they move forwards they will rock from side to side. If however you are going sideways you will not rock backwards and forwards. With this in mind Shadowpuma grabbed his 14 Beers, drank them all in one go and away he went.

Malatas tells you, 'THAT WAS MY IDEA FOR SECOND ATTEMPT!'
Kareoke tells the guild, 'l33t skills !'
Mischief tells the guild, 'puma makes hut 2'
Eriond tells you, 'Go bro!!'
Hallierae tells the guild, 'hut 3'
Mischief tells the guild, 'hut 4 time over'

Mischief tells the guild, 'at the end of round 1 only 2 people have made it passed hut 1, mal made hut 3 with 14 beers, shadow made hut 4 under 14, each will get 1 more go'

Round 2

With everyone now having a better understanding it was time for attempt 2. Again in the same order ...

Mischief tells the guild, 'farlig crashes out, about the only event he not won today'
and then ...
Colal tells the guild, 'Up t p'
Mischief tells the guild, 'grats colal on completeing corse in 2mins 37 with 15 beers inside him'
and then ...
Mischief tells the guild, 'malatas, hut 5 in just over 2mins, a fine target to beat'
and then ...
No one could really believe what they saw next. Keadiin was using his Hip Hop technique to make his way up the ramp. Not really understanding what was going through his mind, maybe the sitting made the effects wear off quicker, but Keadiin made a grand attempt ...
Mischief tells the guild, 'hut 4 with 17, thats the leader with only shadow to go'
and finally ...
You say to your guild, 'I will go for the big 18 pls'
Mischief tells the guild, 'making it to 1st hut with 18 will win you the competiton shadow, good luck'
Mischief tells the guild, 'you time starts now'
Glug, glug, glug... You take a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Glug, glug, glug... You take a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.

Glug, glug, glug... You take a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
You could not possibly consume more alcohol or become more intoxicated!
Glug, glug, glug... You take a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
You could not possibly consume more alcohol or become more intoxicated!
Glug, glug, glug... You take a swig of Brell's Blessed Stout.
Keadiin says, 'fall fall fall fall fall'
Deyen pushes Shadowpuma.
Mischief tells the guild, '1 min'
Mischief tells the guild, '30 secs'
You were hit by non-melee for 316 damage.
YOU were injured by falling.
You say to your guild, 'I fell :('
Mischief tells the guild, 'shadow falls at last ramp but takes the drinking title, 5huts with 18 beers, grats shadow'

The technique that was being called the 'Crab' was very successful. Farlig however was too intoxicated and began to dispute the end result ...

Farlig tells the guild, 'I drank most!'

One thing that did puzzle me whilst climbing up the ramps in the drunken state ... was there really an elephant calf following me or was that the booze effects?

???

So with a very successful evening of fun had by all it was finally time to call it a night and head back to the day to day lives. Hopefully everyone will gather once again in the future to hold one of the great events that can only be described as 'Sceptered Isle's Day of Fun'.
