Thanks Im glad people enjoyed. As always, no matter what we do, people will bitch they want to just do two teams. It always happens, and Ive learned to ignore them. They are the minority, and can easily go off to the side and spar with each other if they do not like the adventure/side battle.
The issue with the CTF battle is that it was an adventure rules battle, and there were basically no adventure rule abilities being used. The losing team had clerics, none used sanctuary. The losing team had mage(s), they didnt gaseous form to the ballistae and pouch fireball it. Both side had casters able to dispel magic, both sides had thieves/assassins who could have brought extra garb and disguised as another country, killed the ched priests before they knew what was going on, and then ran off with the flag.
I can only lead you to the fun, i cannot make you drink.
As far as the potions went, only a few were sold. I heard a few people say they were too pricey (and i discounted most of them severely) but then I hear people complaining that money in Darkon is useless since people have so much. So which is it? If money is so abundant, why horde it?
To those of you who purchased a Mystery potion, please see me next event and i will give you the slip of paper with its description. Apologies I left them up the hill and was not going back up to get them. Also Jackie I owe you a 5gp potion of your choice next event.
I will continue selling the potions each event during check in, until they are all gone (I made 120). They are good until 12/31/12 and can be used at any adventure battle/campout and most of them for Land Searches as well. Final count of coin raised was approx 75 gold and double that in silver, with 0 coins being drawn from the bank, so all profit of horded coin
One note I would like to point out is that I saw more face/head shots yesterday that I have in a LONG time, many by multiyear vets of the game. Please take care in your shots.
