Cammie's Story ~ A whole mess of hunts, part one!

(And it's, y'know, me, so the word "mess" should probably be taken literally. :D)

Apparently the Wendies have been gettin' busy in the foothills lately!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Large Angry Midnight Wendeckas should really not take fertility drugs. Yipes!

Photobucket

Twice I ranked right after falling. Is somebody trying to tell me something??

Next, the Open Hunt returned to the Barrens. Golly, I can't imagine why they call it that!

Photobucket

The last group didn't seem to fare too well. Hopefully we can do better!

Photobucket

Photobucket

I didn't do it, I swear!

Photobucket

Somehow we made it alive into the rebel base. They didn't attack, which I guess means we had gained esteem? (I am still a little fuzz-brained on the whole esteem thing, but I'm generally pretty fuzzy anyways!) It was neat to see the inside of the base, but they could really use a good decorator! Or... a decorator.

Finally, a look at Gandor and BKC brightening up a Foothills hunt with their new colored helmets. Pricey, but worth it I say! Lookin good! =)

Photobucket

Part two comin up!

Cammie's Story ~ The return of the Newbielympics!

With the recent influx of new exiles (I guess Mobius woke up on the wrong side of the bed, eh?) my hubby and I decided to bring back an event we remembered fondly, the Newbielympics. With the go-ahead and some help from members of Winds of Dawn, the event's originators, we were off! Let the games begin!

Photobucket

The first experiment in newbie torture, I mean, event! was the east town footrace. I regret that I have no sketches of the actual races, but for this and many of the events I was at the finish line holding my Official Looking Clipboard™. So I apologize for the lack of live action reporting! It came down to a Thoomdown between Ackkbar and Hoshi, with Hoshi winning. A very exciting start!

Photobucket

Purrfect made a very impressive showing in this event, collecting scents of 54 critters.

Photobucket

We spent a lot of time hangin out with dead guys. :P

Photobucket

Pralkon placed 3rd in the haiku contest. I hope he didn't try to use his prizes at the same time! =)

The overall winner of the 'lympics was Trowl, who made a very impressive showing and won a very impressive prize!

Photobucket

Well I'm sorry I don't have more sketches of the events, but I was runnin around like a headless chicken most of the time! :P If anyone has else sketches, I can be reached at cammiecat@yahoo.com :)

Finally, the event organizers decided to blow off a little steam in creative ways!

Photobucket

There was a big sign outside saying, "Danger!" Really, what else could we do??

Photobucket

Whee, I gots a parachute! T'was fun... til I landed on top of a big angry Orga. Oops!

A HUGE tanks to all who volunteered, donated to and participated in the Newbielympics! It wasn't easy, but I hope it turned out fun. :) I enjoyed getting to know the crop of new exiles, you guys are awesome!

Cammie's Story ~ MAP rocks Greymyr Village!

For this week's MAP hunt we decided to explore Greymyr Village. We encountered trouble at first with several 'myrs pelting us with rocks, but hit our stride when we tried pounding one at a time while Inu ran the rest.

Photobucket

Surrounded and pounded by third circle fighters! We win! =)

Photobucket

MAP: even the rocks get ranks!

Photobucket

Turned out he just wanted a hug. :(

Well by this time I was wonderin, is there an actual village with little Greymyr shops and houses and such? Or, as Downyfoot pointed out, a candy store? The answer, sadly, was no. Savages! And the answer to the origin of Greymyr Rock Candy was even more disturbing!

Photobucket

MAP: if the fighting doesn't kill you, the bad puns will!

Photobucket

Zin and I kept getting hit by the dreaded Double Fen Rock Takedown.

Photobucket

Now I know how the hubby feels... heh heh heh. Well this chief guy had a lot to say about "obelisks" and "exits" which was probably pretty deep for a big pile of rocks, but I had no idea what he was talkin about!

We left via a pf area of the passes I'd never seen before. This lovely pond was hidden away back there!

Photobucket

/action scoops out a fish with her paw and eats it quick!
/action looks innocent.
Whaaaaaat? :P

Puddleby Cribs, Part two: Better Closets and Gardens!

Instead of focusing on one home this month, I'll be spotlighting 3 beautiful gardens (and one amazing closet belonging to guess-which-Clan? :D)

First we have the lovely landscaping of fellow trophy-hunter Aldernon:

Photobucket

I never did learn what that pink thing was, but I wonder if he calls it "Pinky?"

Next up was the Mini Mansion. Chance showed us around the beautiful garden...

Photobucket

Photobucket

complete with frolicking bunnies and unicorns =) A magical place indeed!

And speaking of magical places... may I present the majesty that is the Mini closet!

Photobucket

Well color this girl impressed! (At some point here the hubby got bored and wandered off... men! Honestly. :P)

Many tanks to Chance for the tour of her clan's showplace!

Last but not least, we viewed the fabulous home of Finegas and Koraleva:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I enjoy the serenity of the garden, while hubby goes for an impromptu swim. =) I think I have been inspired by all these landscapes to try my own hand, er, paw at gardening!

Photobucket

It's always fun to compare trophies with a fellow enthusiast!

Tankies for the tours, everyone! Want your home to appear in Puddleby Cribs? Drop me a sunstone!

Cammie's Story ~ Rumble in the Jungle!

This week's Open Hunt took us to the lush landscape of Metzetli Island! My training with Atkus seems to be paying off, as I was able to tag Haremaus, etc. more easily than a mere couple weeks ago.

Photobucket

Madness? My favorite! :D

Photobucket

Some of us arrived better prepared than others! (and a big thank-you to Noivad for getting us the stuffed Haremau. :D)

Photobucket

And half the group is felled by... Mantises. They only look delicate, I swear!

Photobucket

Traveler's Advisory: Beware whatever lurks in the tall grass!

Part of the group split to go to a tougher area, and the rest of us stayed to take on the kittens, crickets, and frogs. Good times (and many trophies :D) were had! =)

Cammie's Story ~ Ever have one of those days, part two!

You know... those days?

Photobucket

When it feels like an entire Abyssal army has tromped across your bloody corpse?

Photobucket

You can probably figure out who ended up being whose breakfast here...

Photobucket

At'n drops by Scarmis to say "hi."

Photobucket

6 Cave Cobras spawning directly in front of you is always a good time!

Photobucket

Amazingly, Aryton actually got us out...

Photobucket

There was no help for poor Seld'kar though.

Photobucket

I probably shouldn't have sold my recipe for Chicken and Meshra Baby Stew to Haricot... *turns vaguely green*

Photobucket

Some days, you get trapped by your own trophies! (This was, admittedly, hilarious. :D)

Entry the Fiftieth

Cammie's Story ~ PF book and milestones!

Wow, it's my fiftieth entry already! I have been a busy Fen, haven't I! Well it's only fitting that the fiftieth entry would feature two milestones, one for me and one for my hubby. :)

First, the Open Hunt made the trip to the Pitch Caves and PF book 1. This was exciting for us, as hubby had just finished his training with Marshy and was ready to start studying the book!

Photobucket

Congrats sweetie! =)

Photobucket

A bit of trouble upon exiting...

Photobucket

And the Sheriff saved the day! It was very impressive, and he returned to town covered with battle scars and spider guts!

A fun and successful hunt, tanks all! =)

A few more things that happened this week...

Photobucket

A Thoom line is spotted in town. Where do they pull those flags outta... wait, I don't wanna know!

Photobucket

I enlist a Trool enforcer for an intervention...

Photobucket

Operation: Flora begins. We're gonna fill the whole house with flowers (if hubby can overcome his allergies.) It even matches his... my... er, our outfit! hehe.

Finally, a milestone for me:

Photobucket

Wahoo!! I'm still pretty far from my goal of 300 Atkus trainings, but after a bit of time with Regia and Histia I'll be back for more!

Cammie's Story ~ MAP invades Noth!

This week's MAP expedition set sail for the strange and forlorn isle of Noth. As usual, we livened things up pretty fast. :D

Photobucket

Photobucket

Two of those blue lightning guys was two too many! It took three salves to raise poor Fishy. Oops...

Photobucket

And now, it's time for another edition of TRAP! This time poor Andarius got caught behind a crate! After much bemusement and saying "huh?," he managed to break loose with the help of a bb'er, a chain, and a bit of cunning. We were rewarded by the gods for "getting out of tight spot." I'm glad we were able to amuse them... :P

Photobucket

Baffette noted it sounds like the Pallidews are saying, "Let's plan on it." As if they weren't creepy enough, now they're plotting against us!

Photobucket

I ran amok and found myself in a herd of wild jello molds! Maybe roasting exiles over an open fire is part of the Dews' plan? eep! Run awaaaaay!!

Photobucket

With the help of Bleign, I got stuffed jello (and the last laugh)!

Photobucket

Andarius ended up with the rare and elusive Fish'Noth. Good score!

Entry the Forty-eighth

Cammie's Story ~ Traps, home decorating, and more!

Well recently I visited an area of Ash Island I hadn't seen before. We met this old guy who lives alone in a hut and doesn't seem to have a very bright outlook on life.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I gave him a hug and a pep talk and hopefully he feels better now!

Later we went to KI Cove (the real one. :D) Poor Sullin was lured to his fiery doom by an evil owl!

Photobucket

I guess ya gotta expect this kind of thing when you hunt with folks from TRAP. ;)

Photobucket

Speaking of TRAP, I took a tour of their clan house for an impromptu Puddleby Cribs. The Doorilla was quite imposing, despite his apparent tendency to drink on the job!

Finally, here are a few scenes from my and BKC's home decorating process:

Photobucket

Our own doorman (who has since found some friends!)

Photobucket

The fierce trashcan gets an upgrade. :D

Photobucket

Showing off our spread!

Photobucket

The fireplace is a favorite addition of mine. =)

Photobucket

Our newest pet. Think I'll call him "Skully."

Photobucket

How many exiles have an organic farm in their home?

I will be featuring a full spread of our home in Puddleby Cribs in the not-too-distant future. Readers, you will not be disappointed. :D

Entry the Forty-seventh

Cammie's Story ~ Wait, you mean this isn't KI?!

Cammie: La la la... bored in town... oh hey, where are those guys going? ... cove, yay!... follow follow follow...

Thus began my first visit to Metzetli Island. :D

Photobucket

If these are kittens, I don't wanna meet their mama any time soon!

Photobucket

Flaming pile of GCP! Seriously, who hasn't wished they could do that?

I knew Metz was dangerous, but I had no idea how lush and beautiful it is!

Photobucket

As soon as I saw these toad things, I knew I had to take one home!

Photobucket

I'm not giving up that easily!

Photobucket

O noes, it's the end times!

Photobucket

Victory! Think I'll call him "Toady."

Tanks for the fun and unexpected adventure! Hope I didn't cause too much trouble. :D
