...and justice for all.
It was meant to be just another grinding: not too enjoyable, not too boring in a race to reach both Gatherer and Fletcher lvl.100 and they go up for fighting.
Initially it was grinding when one Dragon asked for help in defeating some skeletons. "Peace of cake" - I thought. I am a top-level Warrior and top-level Cleric: heavy armor and 7 healing spells, what could go wrong?
it went. Was killed when to to sneak past some Bhalkuk gatherers. Recalled. Then went another way to my Dragon. Yes, I saw those skeletons: lvl.106 ones, higly evasive. Alone I could nebver have a chance against them. We killed one, then went to second and the second was on his way to be owned...but the third one came. I was killed first, then my Dragon. 3 death points in a day.
Later we discussed strategy with this Dragon and came to conclusion we should 'invite' only one skeleton at a time. Then we would have some chance.
Went back to grinding. I thought fighting was over. 3 death points were more than enough for one day. Of course, it hitted my self-confidence. I thought being multiclassed meant I should be strong...and it wasn't. Conclusion: I need more multiclassing to be strong and don't be afraid of any monster.
Then another Dragon approached. He needed some Bloodkskulk stuff. We went to hunt together. Ran across small island killing everyting: simple Bloodskulks just because they are ugly Bloodskulks; Bloodskulk Bloodmages because he needs their trophies; Bloodskulk Soothsayers because he needs their trophies.
It was running around: to notice Bloodskulk and to kill it. I was of little use - just as a healer...and still this Dragon gave me lots of trophies just for taking part in a hunt.
Finally, we both had to recall. I deposited some trophy technologies in our Guild house (maybe someone will need them?), scribed something and replaced tier 2 technologies with tier 4 ones. Then went to crafting again, reaching lvl.70 in Gatherer school and almost lvl. 85 (or 86?) in Fletcher.
At the end of the day one Dragon needed some money, I gave it (since it is not hard to earn).
Player A. showed up, asked for some tier 2 spells and left before our most honoured member (usually adressed only as Sir [nick]) made them. I felt somewhat strange. When Player A. asked/demanded for some money, I did not respond. When that Dragon said, I answered "yes" without thinking.
And yes, Player S. We hunted 20 fire ogres with her, I got some trophies to level up my future battle classes and she - I suppose - got new Dragon ability.
The day was succesfull one. Little grinding, much helping/fighting. Today is maintanance day, so I would have little time to grind or fight.
