Utterings of a Mad Wizard!!

    So there we were...Fantilda (Clr), ClinkClank (Ftr), Brandywine(Pal), and the Blind Mage(WMD)...at the end of the 'Acid Wit' adventure in The 12.  Things were going as usual - all dead (Brandywine, fighting to the last breath; Fantilda, because the game targets healers regardless of how far away they are; and Clink, because he jumped in a pool of acid thinking it was lava). I was the only one up..the last hope, but there were still 3 enemies to deal with, and I was down to less than 25% mana and health!

    I managed to make it to the shrine, all the way back up that 5 story ledge, before I was smitten by the 'Lag' gremlin (or one of the CR16 Trogs learned how to teleport). Not enough to stop a Blind Mage, I returned from the grave and exacted my vengeance on the poor soul..his fiery death serving as a warning to his two other comrades!  With my teammates down, and only two foes to deal with, I knew victory was at hand!

    Then I fell of the ledge (what do you expect, I'm the Blind Mage), yelled at Clink for not getting off his stone when I was trying to grab it, and died a curse-spewing death (me doing the spewing) because I could not get up a 2 foot ledge with my -1 Jump. 

    It feels good to be home!!

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.

Alliance - in international politics, the union of two thieves who have their hands so deeply inserted in each other's pockets that they cannot separately plunder a third.

A sobering thought: what if, at this very moment, I am living up to my full potential?
