This week during my Dum Group we had Sodum and Opdum and we decided to change things up a bit and play our monster players, which we call our Mud Group (that’s Dum backwards in case you missed it).
First things first is we thought we needed a proper tribe for our Muds. It had to be awesome and fear inspiring! But instead we went with what made us giggle and created a monster play tribe called the “Mud Butts”.
Now let me be clear. I do not get monster play. I’ve had several tours through the Moors from some of the best players I know (namely Ivaneus and Andang). I understand that for some players, this is seriously the bees knees. I have no problem with those who love it, I’m just saying its have never clicked with me.
I play the weaver for our Mud Group. Right now I’m just floundering. I’m a complete and total “Greenie”. Low ranked with little in terms of skills. I understand I must play more to get better but man oh man am I just weak to start out with!
If we find a free person to kill it takes us forever to kill it, if we can even kill it at all. This isn’t a problem. I actually find this slightly amusing that there’s a bunch of us beating on a Warden or a Minstrel who is obviously just toying with us. Should we actually kill anything after fighting it for a long while we all shout about how awesome we all are. This is fun!
This week we got caught in some sort of Rez Circle war with the Free People bunched up at the bottom of the hill basically waiting to slaughter us repeatedly. This is where it was just so obvious how weak a character my weaver is in that if a hunter or a rune-keeper happened to target me, I was nearly instantly dead. No amount of healing can save me.
The group of Creeps that had gathered with us at the Rez Circle couldn’t kill anyone either. So no gain was received, just multiple instant deaths.
This was not fun. So we left to go kill Hobbits.
We tried to recruit Mayor Mudbottom into our Mud Butts tribe since he seemed to be one of us. He would have none of it so we killed him and I collected his feet as a trophy. I’m creepy like that.
We were discovered by Freeps here after a while and we did kill one or two of them before being smooshed so that was pretty fun too.
You can take the girl out of the Hobbit but no the Hobbit out of the girl. Even while on my not so pretty spider I was scoping out other spider skins other players had. One day I may buy me a pretty new spider cosmetic so I can at least look awesome.
At the end of the night, I turned in enough quests to get Rank 3. Yeah! I’m sure I’m super strong now! I also bumped up my Audacity as far as I had commendations for on the advice of my fellow Mud Butts. Hopefully next time I will be a smidge less useless when in a skirmish with those darn Freeps!
