Dec 15 - The well-deserved thanks I intended for my article about taking down Lusca were cut due to limited word count. Nonetheless, the raid which made possible much of the exacting information cited would never have happened without the encouragement of my friends Afllicktion and Kwee, and the amazing Supergroup they (and now I too) call home, the United Heroes Brigade on Champion.
Despite the short notice, the failure of chat servers early on, the abandonment by a rogue team when their leader's faux paus caused a mass wipe, the true heroes came through in the end, and the raid proved a success!
And as for that stoic little man with the word Fluffy in his name---? When the rest of us were staring with our mouths hanging open as that one team of beefy macho guys abandoned us mid-raid, Fluffy sends me a Tell that says, simply, "I'm gonna start another team." I owe you a hug, Fluffy.
Unbeknownst to me, at the same time Afllicktion herself was sending out the call to the UHB for reinforcements. *HUGS!* Then came the calvary: Million (40 Lev50s) Dollar, ReDorthy and Artic Chilly, among others.
And you know I am grateful for the help of my husband's PB, Pigger!
I must also thank my sidekick, Mr. Reegins, who helped me as much as I helped him. And a special mention goes to HardCore (or was it HardCourt?) for sticking with us despite the debt he accrued.
Once we got the raid in full swing, it proved quite fun, and I am indebted to all of you for your assistance. ---Marjorie aka Pretty Pill
