Meet a Demigod - Friar.Fuk
Hehehee now onto the good stuff :-) You guys are going to love the stories heres a starter:
Were on 16 and we have it cleared except for Diablos den. I am set at the entrance, and Gumby is at the levers and Kshira is hiding in the northwestern most corner - the ref is of course upstairs so we dont lose the game.
The idea is to lure the big guy out and maze trap him of course - only the deal goes bad - he won't come out. So, yours truly (the mage) is running like hell from 4 black knights - to the maze, and simu- ltaneously trying to message the backup to meet me north of the maze. Ok the situation gets handled.
At this point we are a bit frazzled and kind of forget to have any kind of plan - we are going to hold at the north entrance to the southern half of the map - thats the plan. Well, we go in and burn some Advocs and BKs and Diablo decides to come out oh shit!
I decide on the spot to run to the maze - where I already have a TP set up to escape to. If the mage runs - we all run - or so I am thinking. Well, Kshira gets my new revised plan about 2 seconds too late - as I am busy running to the maze and frantically typing. I lose track of Gumby at this point. Kshira dies in the demon's grasp.
I lure Diablo to the maze and he is stuck whew. Pant, pant..wheeze..
We finish off the level without incident - mostly stone curse and rogue shoots em - a few at a time. So, then its time to do Diablo. Of course we are fresh out of res - having used 2 or 3 - maybe 4 of them on the level already. So, its rogue and mage vs a big pissed off demon.
Well, ole apoc-breath runs mighty fast - none of the FWs touches him, or barely at all. We stand our ground - and I open fire with the HB stick I have been hauling along with me since like level 2 - with scant, but ever-strengthening hope I might actually get to use it.
Bad news - I only have a level 2 HB - so this is going to be tough. I also have 5 full potions on my belt - and thats it. Gumby gave me an additional potion he had on him before we went to take him on - the critical potion - but thats later.
Well, I seize him up with my first barrage, but he recovers after a few hits and strikes at Gumby. Gumby valiantly stands his ground with the last of his Heal scrolls grasped in his arrow hand. I seize him up for about 5 - 6 HBs and then he hits about 3 4 times, undaunted by the HBs.
Gumby goes down and Diablo closes on me. We trade, me seizing him up then he to me. I go through a potion every time his turn comes around. I have a good amount of mana - 250+, but Im taking a beating. Whats worse, by my best gut instinct my HB stick is going to run out.
So, I make a run for it - to try and get space to recharge the stick. I get 3/4 around the maze before I have my space. He closes and hits me. I am at 2 pots left now. Meantime Gumby is imploring me to leave the level and regroup.
Problem, this fat sucker regenerates if I do that - and I have no backup potions. So, there is only one choice, him or me. I back off bit during this calculation - I am almost back to the entrance to the maze.
I stand my ground and fire away. As I use my 2nd to last pot - its looking bad - he is really shredding me, and there is blood all over the place. I am still locking him up - but there just doesn't seem to be an end to it.
I am resigned to die. I have been playing with these guys - trying to get to this point for a year - and I am going to be taken down by this big fat jerk. I am sure Im just not doing enough damage to him.
I use my last pot - the one Gumby gave me before we went to extract D. I lock him he locks me, I lock him. This is it, my last time, last chance, On his next attack he will hit me once, then twice, and I will have failed yet again to achieve my long sought after goal.
Boom - blood all over the damn place, hes spewing like a stuck pig in heat - I cant believe it - I jump back out of my chair and commence to giggle maniacally at 3 am. In my solitude, here at home, yet knowing my mates are doing the same thing one hundreds and one thousands of miles away - I revel in the moment. I am giggling and pumping my fist like some sort of defiant serial killer - really off my rocker, raving mad!!
