A resort of New Brommel is a good place to rest indeed. No monsters roaming forests or roads. No resources, almost no structures. A perfect place for someone just to walk plains or climb mountains and even to refresh in the sea.
Yesterday had to help one friendly Dragon. He took a quest that I once turned down and had to kill level 103 Kwellen Berserker. Tha monster has 16.000 hp, dodges most of attacks and still hits hard. We went in group and then the fun began. Dragon fought as hardly as he could. Our mage casted curses every time he could and our Gnomian heavy fighter hit Kwellen. I tried to hit, mostly focusing on healing. Got several vurses from monster, using all of 6 healing spells, sometimes watching that Dragon's health is dangerously low...but no one died. Monster was slained, everyone rejoiced. Untill Dragon told it was a wrong monster. Newertherless, the fight was excellent.
Later went to New Brommel's deadlands to help Player S. and her friends. We went directly to the lvl.71-76 monsters, being surrounded my hordes of them, being strucked by monster's curses. And yet we survived, sometimes with 1 or 100 health - but we did it. Teamwork was almost perfect, everyone gained so desirable experience and fun. I felt very good, being able to heal lots of hp to anyone in my group. Also invited one lvl.15 Dragon to join us. Looks like he enjoyed the fighting too.
Also took one quest: Trick or treat. Dressed in a special mask, I have to ask NPCs in all towns for trick or treat and some of NPCs would give me candy ("dead mouse" - wait a second, what kind of candy is that?). When I finish with all the NPCs, I will receive some reward.
Did I also mention that for those candies you may obtain a cool-looking Undead costume? A pretty way to freighten someone, especially in the dark Night...
Overall - a good hunting and helping day in Istaria.
