Sock 2

Man, and I had the best intentions to get this up earlier today, if it weren't for the damn THIEVERY. What the hell is wrong with the world?

Today's Tips:

  • While some strategies are undoubtedly better than others, this is a multi-faceted game, and there really isn't one way to come out most powerful. A lot is based on luck, and if you haven't been lucky lately, persevere, and one day, your prince will come.
  • A couple of people have asked me, and yes: If you land the finishing blow on another contestant, you DO get half of their experience and gold. (They lose it.) If you're part of a guild, it will be split among members as usual.

Good to go? OK!

--------

"This simply won't do. If they're going to intrude on my world, they aren't going to bring that disgusting stench with them."

"Yes, of course...*SNORT*... You can stop them without any problem! ...*SNORKCH*"

"Indeed. Those little fleas have no idea what exactly they're walking into."

Submission Form


Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
