Foothills? Where the heck are these?
72 Spring 547 (08 September 2002)
- Woooh! Today it's a very long report. I am sorry for the wait that
might be involved to read it completely, but I did really enjoy that trip,
that brought me to the farthest place I have ever been so far! I was lucky
to be invited to a trip to the foothills! Yay!
We gathered at the meadow and received some instructions from Yor. I made
some notes, but somehow lost them later on.... uhh. From the meadow we
rushed through the Orga Camp and reached even Hatred Hollow in record time!
Using kudzu trapped some Hatreds, we did not have the time to kill yet and
were able to be through HH within a puddlehour! (Last time I was at HH it
took us like half a day!)
From the briefing into the action!
- Beyond Hatred Hollow we rushed into the trainers grotto (called
that because there are several 3rd circle fighter trainers exiled there)
and took some breath. Now I was told we could either fight our way through
Dred Passage (supposedly not nice) or utilize Zortons Orga Stone, which
has the power to teleport some exiles over a little distance. The problem
with the teleporting is that, that Zorton can only transport exiles that
share with and touch him! We were way to many to do that,
so we used a loop hole called chains! Some of us had to fall and get
chained so we could endure the porting to the foothills!
Using an Orga Stone...
- As we arrived we quickly healed up and started our trek into
the narrow and winding paths of the hills. There we found a lot midnight
wendies, which had a surprisingly nice fur! I need to start study with
Ms. Skea soon again, so I might be more useful in that department.
Also Led made me blush as he mentioned this very journal. Thanks 8)
I'd rather skinned than giving autographs 8)
- We proceeded quickly! I was very confused and lost my way. All
I could do was to follow and watch! (Well, and skin occasionally 8)
More furs trying to stop us!
- After some hidden paths we were through the hills! A nice and
peacefully place called Camp Dred awaited us. It reminded me a bit
of the snaggle wood, but had some really fierce inhabitants. Rages
attacked us in packs, a lot of warlocks bolted us constantly and we
had a hell of a time! Yay! Fun! 8)
This time we run into a Hatred again, which took us some minutes
to kill but rewarded us with a 800 coin chest! Very impressive! And
a nice share even for little Hor! (I was the weakest fighter on that
hunt, one more reason to be proud! 8)
Arriving in Camp Dred - nice chests to find there!
- Next we went to see some trees and I was shown the Redwood Glade!
There we were greeted with a bunch of Ash Giants (never saw one of them
before!) and felled all of them with a lot of effort! Once we cleared
that place we lined up for a game of Uli lottery. Another tree showed up
to play too! But it did not win, Taurobar did! Congrats for that fresh Uli
Playing games in the Redwood Glade.
- I had not the opportunity to see a lot of the tourist attractions
near Camp Dred because we were soon ambushed by a lot of warlocks! I fell
quickly and the most of the rest of the party soon after. Luckily some
survived and with some extraordinary chain action it was possible to
get everyone! Wooh!
Because some of us where fallen beyond the horus ability of our healers
we decided to chain them back to town. Time to retreat and I volunteered
to do the chaining... I was not a big addition to the fighting anyway.
We almost made it back all the way... one more snell to the exit I was
told. Frustration hit us as we run into a spawn of like 30 midnight
wendies! Within some minutes all of our party was erradicated and we
decided to depart. This was only my second depart, but it was worth it!
Many thanks I could be part of that journey. I look forward for another
Preparing to go home - unsuccessfully...
