- The Prelude -
The day started with me logging on to negligible amounts of damage (0) by sling fire. I was inside my palisade, and these raiders of the sort were lurking on the other side of our walls, attempting to taunt me out. They boasted about killing my two friends, and the "203UA" they knew I couldn't handle. With a few questions in skype, my "two friends" turned out to be some noobs who settled near by. I was baffled as to why we were being attacked, as we had not yet provoked such a thing. None the less, I am well experienced with combat system, but happened to be soldier, so I hung tight and waited for my comrades to log on. The prelude concluded when one of the raiders ran up to a mine support and broke it in attempt to wreck my "nice place". After nearly killing both him and his ally, I called them retarded and they left.
- First Blood -
The Pride Of Ainran was assembled, and an assault mounted against the assailants. We tracked towards their hearth fires, picking up a multitude of scents along the way. After confirming a palisade'd area as the perps village, we began tracking the perps them selves, and behold, a lone perp to the north! With haste we departed towards him. Not to far away we spotted him boating towards us. Agro, trapped, and the Pride dispatched him. His last words... assurance we would be killed by one of his comrades.
After, we went back to the perps village, to camp the gates. Behold, another stroke of luck? One of the people who attacked me stood outside the gate, we picked up agro and charged after my assailant, but it is most unfortunate, he escaped our clutch via a near by boat. He broke away, and we delivered our attacks of opportunity, but failed to bring him down.
A brief synopsis of the conversation to follow
Me - "You asked me to come out and play, so I'm here now "
Perp #2 (inside walls) - " I'm not coming out, there are three of you "
Me - "And there are three of you?"
We were assured we would fail, and we left.
-The Tunneling -
The best course of action, decided, was to tunnel to our opponents, as it was noted they had an un-walled cave entrance inside there palisade. The name is the only thing suiting for this... 7+ hours of tunneling, 4 cave systems, and 3 tunnels later we arrived.
Conclusion in next post.
You may have foiled the plans of BAD-EVIL this time, but there is no rest for the wicked.
