Day 35-54

Posted: October 23, 2007 in Uncategorized

A lot has happened, but not so much that I can’t get you caught up in a few paragraphs.  I continued to tackle quests from Sentinel Hill in Westfall until I was directed to venture into Lakeshire in the Redridge Mountains. I also ventured south across a small river to (what seemed like) an impossibly dangerous ghost town province of Duskwood.

One quest had me fighting three kinds of Delfias Brotherhead enemies in the Dagger foothills. That was actually pretty easy. I owe my success to better utilization of the sunder armor spell.

I’ll usually check my “friends” list to see if anyone I’ve previously adventured with is online. If I know I’m going to be playing for more than 30 minutes, I’ll text them and see if they “need any help”.  On one occasion, a friend responded with “yes” and sent a group invitation, but a check of the map revealed that he was clear across Duskwood.

The shortest path seemed to be one that I hadn’t yet taken, a long run across a high-level area. There seemed to be a safe road going across, however, so I decided to give it a try. 

The first 200 steps were easy, but my pitiful progess on the main map showed what a long haul this was going to be.  Soon, I ran into a spider. I died  without hardly hitting him.  My ghost popped up at the creepiest graveyard ever, which, once I recovered my body, put me back to where the spider was, which killed me again.  This sucked. My far-off teammate wasn’t texting “where are you?” but I was sure that is what he was thinking. After about 20 minutes of running to his aid, he disbanded! Dammit! I was mad at him for “disowning me” when I was risking life and limb to get to him quickly.

The next day I realized that he probably hadn’t even realized I was on my way. I was on a different map from him, and he was probably just concious of me taking half of his experience points, even though I was no where around.

 I turned around and went back to Westfall.
