A crowd had gathered in the rather dusty and brick filled Throne Room of Castle Britannia, In the corner of the room a large hole was visible from behind a curtain.



At 8pm Queen Dawn arrived and thanked us for coming, She began to explain the reasoning for the mess.

Queen Dawn: "A few days ago Sherry came to visit me, Sherry had stumbled upon a strange crystal somewhere in her tunnels."
A member of the audience asked what kind of crystal it was, Queen Dawn didn't know. Dawn then continued.

Queen Dawn: "Since we haven't actually seen it yet (The crystal). It is still inside the hole. You see the crystal was too large for Sherry to carry it out.

Kevin Longshot: "So you blew the floor up?"

Queen Dawn: "In short, ye
s."



Rumours whispered throughout the crowd about Ricardo and the secret vault of Lord British.

Queen Dawn: "I think some of you may have heard of this as well. It seems a secret password was needed to enter the door. But, my advisor's found out that the password wasn't the only thing needed to enter the secret door. 3 Items are required to enter this secret door, Lord British' Cloak, his scepter and his crown. None of these we posses.. So it seemed more practical to just blow a hole in the floor."
Queen Dawn then called forward a man called William, The person responsible for the hole in the floor. He placed communication crystals on the floor of the Throne Room and began to lower himself into the hole.



Down in the hole he found a mass of mouse droppings.. and, most importantly, The mysterious crystal! Queen Dawn thanked him and told him to take it to the Royal Tinker so a case can be crafted for it, The crystal could then be examined.

Once William left, suddenly the Queens messaging bird flew into the room. She removed the message from the birds leg and read the message aloud.

Queen Dawn: "Skara Brae is under attack! Serpents and Alligators are attacking the town."


She requested we suit up and leave immediately!

At Skara Brae the entire town was covered in flapping green daemon type monsters called 'Putrefiers'.







Over on the south side of the Island giant blackrock infected Spiders appeared.



Over the city blackrock infected Spiders, Serpents and Alligators appeared alongside Red Deaths, Putrefiers and more undead big baddies.



The battle continued over the Skara Brae Ferry and onto the main land.



Finally the battle ended, Near by in the middle of the road was a red statue.





Double clicking the statue gives you a red staff that shoots off a random amount of fire works, It automaticly recharges over time and you can get one per character.

Want one? I'm sure you do! If you didn't get one in the battle I have included a map.

I do try and take screenshots in 2d, The trouble is, With a very good PC when I use the 2d client my CPU is at 99%. EC? It's at about 55%.

EC plays a lot smoother than 2d on this new PC oddly enough, But then on the opposite end, I have a crappy PC and it plays 2d better than this one. :D

Sorry I cannot please you all, I do try! :)

Those staffs shoot off the same amount of fireworks each time. Its just different for different staffs.

I have 2 that both shoot off 29 fireworks each everytime and 1 that shoots off 13 fireworks everytime.

I got five staffs, and they shoot off 49, 29, 13, 5 and 5 again charges per shot... so it seems there's a fair amount of variety in them...
