Sock 2

The "calm" after the storm. This should be interesting... and nice for me. I don't have to type everybody's actions out, ahahahaha! Yes.

Today's Tips:

  • Do not despair! The game is far from over, in case you are feeling disappointed. There are many chances for you to get back in the game. If your current strategies don't seem to be working, try something different.

Wahh, this is going to be a late one.

--------

We were sitting around Mendley's main eatery, feasting for the first time in days. Seth made sure that the meal was on the house, and we had recounted our story of Mazell and the castle to what seemed like hundreds of very excited people. The crowds had since dissipated some, leaving us to converse among ourselves. Though we knew time was ticking, and Shayla was anxious to get moving, we knew that we needed a break, and time to rebuild our strenghth.

"Why should we trust you? You're really Mazell's son?" Veronica looked up with a skeptical glare.

"Shayla kept me out of jail. She believed in me. As I said, I was returning the favour. My father... he's a twisted man. I don't know what he's planning on doing, but..." he looked at Shayla with his unnaturally crystal-blue eyes, "... I really don't want to see your friends and family crushed."

Shayla grimaced. "And they will be. Do you have any idea what the might of Diamante is? I don't even want to think about it; it could be too late already!" She stood up. "We need to set off soon. I'm worried sick."

"What fools we were," my dad mused, staring off into space as if he was in his own little world. "Trying to control the Elemental Guardians as if they were merely tools? Enslaving the very forces that hold our world together? We- the human race- deserve their wrath."

Aunt Angelina looked over and gave him a frown. "Stop being so depressing. What's done is done, but our job... our destiny is to defend the life of this world. If the Elemental Guardians are allowed to seek vengeance upon humanity? Shucks, it's curtains for us. We have no choice but to fight."

Shayla looked troubled, and gave the rest of us a very desperate look.

"We must be off," Wooley said, "but I sometimes worry that by destroying these guardians... we are destroying the very bonds that hold this world together."

We left in silence, and struck off in the direction of Sly's shortcut. According to him, we'd be back at Moonward as soon as tomorrow...

The Hidden Hand makes an announcement:

"Tired of seeing the SIA dominate the game? Were you glad to see that their light-based Sirius would no longer be able to do damage to the dark-based Mazell? You're not alone. Please do not let the SIA's propaganda dictate what your actions should be. The death of Sirius was meant to prevent the SIA, which had already killed Gorgant, from gaining an extra and super-effective hit against the light-vulnerable Mazell. We did all non-SIA members a favor by giving them a better chance to get in the killing strike on Mazell. Please also consider who the real threat in this game is. The "Key to Victory" dropped by Mazell will likely open the "mysterious door" that appears from time to time. However, the SIA has racked up so many kills that they likely have the Guildsman's Warehouse, enabling them to store a great number of items freely - making stealing the Key to Victory potentially impossible. And in case you're wondering which SIA members to thank for racking up so many kills, that would be ERROR and Goddess Atma. To the SIA members who are not Joshua, I have just one thing to say: There can only be one winner in this game. Think about that when you look at the Key to Victory sitting in your Warehouse. If there's going to be a Guild war between the SIA and the three of us in the Hidden Hand, then we all know who is going to win that war. It's only a matter of time before they come after you next. Therefore, I'm asking all the other Guilds to join in a united effort to bring SIA down a few notches, and I'm asking any player not in a Guild to join one other than SIA. The choice is yours. Pave their way to victory, or stop them dead in their tracks."

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!"
