Yep, it's a BIG day. Lots of enemies. It's gonna be scary, but we'll see what happens.

Today's Tips:

  • Most of the time, when I tally up your scores for the day, points obtained from your question responses get considered before your action. There are a few exceptions to that rule, but they always work in your favour.
  • Gold Doublers will work to double ALL of your obtained Gold for a day. If there were some way to perform two actions in a single turn, then, it would be a great opportunity to sell some of your old things...

Ohhhhkay. And now, for the conclusion of last Friday's column:

--------

There were monsters everywhere. We fought with all of our hearts, but it seemed that whenever we'd get in a blow, three more would appear.

"Daniel, watch out!" my dad cried out as a snarling Saboteur swooped down from above. I dodged, and it narrowly missed me, but faced with new adversaries, I had to keep concentrating.

Lily was holding her own with some powerful-looking magic, and Shayla, expert with a sword, was having little problem. Veronica and Elia, however, were struggling. As I looked over, I noticed the monsters really concentrating their attacks on the poor healer girl. I tried to fight my way over to give her a hand, but I was too late. Within moments, a few of the winged ones lifted her right off of her feet. She shrieked, kicking and screaming.

"Elia!" Our voices rang out in vain.

"THIS IS THE ONE WITH THE STINK!" Their voices felt so alien... so evil. "TAKE HER AWAY!"

Elia screamed as they flew off into the night sky with her, off towards the mountains in the distance. There was little we could do but fight on, our hearts growing more discouraged by the minute.

Just when I started to lose all hope, a couple of new voices cleaved the air.

"Stand back!" A glistening lance streaked through the air, followed by a couple of arrows. A large, muscular man was running towards us from the direction of the village lights, followed by a strong looking woman and man, all dressed in cool-looking brown clothing. "Need a hand? I can get the job done."

Grateful for this mystery man's aid, we kept fighting into the night...

--------

Only the learned ones will have
The smarts to decipher
The tomes of ages past;
The books of the gods whose pages know all.

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!"
