Playing in the MUD!

I am Lianca, this is my blog. I am an avid player of Achaea, but I'd not call myself a gamer. The internet kind of scares me. Learn from my adventures, my mistakes and triumphs, perhaps even roll a newbie and join me in Achaea!

Hello everyone!

Great news from the noob combatant in IRE's Achaea. I WON!!

I was lucky, and it turns out unprepared, but in the end I crossed my fingers (metaphorically, that would be terrible for a text game) and went for it.

An almost unbearable feeling of emptiness heralds the arrival of a cloaked and hooded figure carrying a blood-stained sickle. Darklyre gasps in terror as a skeletal hand emerges from the sleeve and points at him. He bows his head to the inevitable as the manifestation of Death swings its sickle at his neck. You watch in fascinated horror as he is gathered to Death's cold bosom.
You have slain Darklyre.
Defeated, Darklyre is cast out of the Arena.
You have been victorious and leave the Arena in triumph!

With one spar down, I have to beat someone else, who is much smarter to the ins and outs of 1v1 pk. We sparred and damn, he has serious hindering and can put out quite a bit of damage. It was all I could do to prep my own setup and run away to heal back up! In the end he was too smart for my working and the prep went to waste as he tumbled out of my trap.

Unfortunately the second opponent feels like he doesn't know what he's doing and is refusing to spar again until he gets some training in, so I'm going to have to beg for a second opponent. But I'm halfway there at least and feeling a lot better about things now that I've seen some success in my work.

In the meantime, I'm going to work on refining my aliases and reflexes, making sure I have everything I need to be fully prepared for a fight and practice at making the process more fluid. There's nothing work than getting one step done and thinking "Oh crap, what next?!" Which happened a time or two and that any good opponent would capitalise upon.

That's all for me in this round, I hope to report in with another success soon. As always, if any of this has interested you, why not give PK in your favourite MMORPG a try, or roll a character and join us in one of the top MUDS from IRE! writes:
