Cammie's Story ~ Storming the Ruined Castle!

This week's Open Hunt took us back to the Ruined Castle and its creepy-crawly inhabitants.

Some of us had a falling contest. I think Ackkbar won by a rather wide margin. :D

Photobucket

That didn't stop us all from trying, though!

Photobucket

Noooo, save the boosting Mystic! Even if he did steal my fierce battle cry! :P

Photobucket

What's great about these Open Hunts is, everyone can find their own fun. :D Even if it is sometimes... icky.

Then we ventured into the dank Trool caves. I decided to make myself useful early on!

The Trools kept followin me around! They better not have any ideas about keepin Fens as pets! Grrrr.

I chained a corpse of my old nemesis the Tearer to have stuffed, and luckily had a little help getting it home safely!

My mission is, for every hunt I am on while my dear fiance travels the mainland, I will bring him a trophy as a token of my love. Aren't I sweet?? :D

Cammie's Story ~ Orga stronghold squished!

Some Orga Scouts were spotted in east field, and many of us went to investigate.

Photobucket

On hearing reports of a stronghold being built near South Pass, we headed off to certain doom victory!

There were several unfamiliar types of Orga including Skirmishers, Bonecrushers (I think?) and Colliders. A new tribe, perhaps?

Photobucket

Knock down those walls! Show 'em we mean business!

Photobucket

Erm... ow.

Photobucket

What Orgas lack in vocabulary, they make up in sheer determination.

Photobucket

I learn how the Collider got its name.

It was a hard-fought battle, but we win!! For now, anyway.

Photobucket

And a Skirmisher for our collection! :)

Entry the Thirty-fifth

Cammie's Story ~ Darshaks, rebels, and... talking rats?!

This'll be a long entry, so bear with me! So it all started (as I heard) when a representative from a group of pirate rebels came to Puddleby to warn us of a Darshak attack, and offer alliance.

He seemed true to his word when the Darshak came ashore in great force.

Photobucket

We advanced to west town and were fired on by some sort of fire cannons. This group of Shaks seemed to have more advanced weaponry than ones we've fought in the past.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Chance tried to engage the rebels who fought alongside us in conversation, but they were tight-lipped about everything but destroying the Shaks. Other exiles were not so patient and killed rebels on sight, causing them to turn on us and double our enemies.

Photobucket

As usual, the guards were of no use whatsoever!

Haffron thins the ranks with her Lava Cloak:

Photobucket

Darshaks roasting on an open fire, vermine nipping at your nose...

Photobucket

This fella was "Captain" Pelius Direstorm, who said he was avenging his uncle. Who's your uncle, again? And is that puffy shirt supposed to scare us??

I heard that Pelius was later defeated by the darshak rebels, though this reporter was, um, indisposed at the time.

Photobucket

Yeah, this is pretty much just a regular day for me...

Photobucket

Wait, another crew of Shaks? These guys really need to all stop shopping at the same store!

Photobucket

The creepiest part of the whole thing? Not the bloodthirsty pirates nor life-sucking skulls, but the conscious (and apparently, wannabe gourmet) rats! Was the (now deceased) Captain Scabfoot responsible, or will sentient rats be our ultimate downfall? Stay tuned!

As for the Darshak crews and the rebels, I'm sure we've not heard the last from them. I hope we'll be able to unite against the common enemy to win the war, as I fear some bad blood was formed among our own ranks this battle.

Til next time,
