Up to 'Nothing

Day 122, Year 546 of the Ascendancy

There hasn’t been much exciting to write about lately. No big
invasions, no new areas, and a complete lack of interesting events. I
suppose that no news is good news, but it certainly is boring news.

On a more positive note, some of my raffles from
last week did pretty well, and I finally have money in my pockets
again– if not a whole lot. It’ll be interesting to see how long my
coins last this time.

Finally, today I attended my clan’s monthly
meeting, and after some brief conversation and good old fashioned clan
experience, we set off on our boats to hunt some ‘Noths.

We did pretty well at first– there were many
‘Noths and ‘Dews in the Dal’Noth town, and we were able to lure them
one by one for some easy hunting. However, the screams that constantly
fill the air of the Dal’Noth town made one of my clanmates
uncomfortable, and after a while we decided to move on. This turned out
to be a mistake.

My clanmate Drue’Dreemi set up a wall of kudzu to
trap the ‘Noths that we had lured near us, and we made a run through
the Dal’Noth town, in an attempt to reach quieter hunting grounds.
However, as we entered the town, ‘Noths seemed to materialize all
around us, impeding our progress. Those of us who made it past the
river soon found that there were a couple Vels and Xars waiting for us.

In short, we were toast.

Within five minutes since we stepped into the
Dal’Noth town, half my clan was fallen. The rest of my clan soon
followed. However, a few of my clanmates managed to escape and were
able to rescue us with valiant chain runs. Soon we were all back on our
feet again, and we hunted for a while more before we headed back to

All in all it was a fun and exciting hunt, complete with the obligatory clan disaster.
