So here it is, the report of our 9th trade caravan!

Thanks for waiting I sadly was VERY busy with work and other things. But I have some goodies for you to pardon me!

 

On a side note, I recommend all the defenders not to take their faction characters to the Trade Caravan, it makes it even harder for them to defend from both orange and red enemies!

 

I won't keep you waiting, here it is!

 

 



The time had come again for a new Trade Caravan after a break of a few months.

 

I wasn't sure that we would have a lot of people coming, especially since we announced the caravan day and time only a few days before the actual event.

But soon my fears were gone and we hand a bunch of defenders ready to die... I mean to protect us!

 

I decided to wait a bit longer for everyone to gather. We were soon ready to head to Britain.

 

And off we go! En route for a grand moment of fun and mayhem... I mean thrill Laughing 

The ambushes started very quickly !

The caravan is a bit spread along the road and I try to regroup everyone so we wait for the back of the caravan to catch up on us and get some relief from the bandits!

 

A bit later on the road I receive reports of skirmishes in the back of the caravan so I decided to wait for them. When our brave second caravan leader gets roasted in front of us! Ouch!

We finally make it to the bridge where we try to regroup before continuing to Britain. Though faction fights were starting all around the Caravan.

 

The trip to Britain from there was rather quiet but I received report that the back of the caravan had a hard time advancing because of all the brigands attacking them. So I decided to run back to help them, but found myself alone in the middle of more enemies than I could chew... and it ended like it should... oooOOOoooOO

Luckily enough though, the reinforcements came down quickly and we didn't lose my sword! And finally we headed back to Britain where we gathered to count our losses.

4 swords out of 7 were stolen from the Caravan this time. Let's hope we'll make better next time!

Hello fellow Britannians,

As announced at the end of the past week, the HLP guild will be running a new trade caravan.
This is 2009 first trade caravan! So don't miss it!
This time we will be on the road to Britain from Trinsic.

Here is the planned route :

 

Everyone is welcome to join us and help us defend our prized possessions in the dangerous trip.

The caravan will depart the coming Tuesday, enlist yourself!

We count on you!

Paidric of New Haven.


This event is intended for all players who want to experience some PvP in a fun and different way. We encourage every player to join us.
Bring your blessed armor and weapons if you fear the insurance cost! Or just buy some GM made armor/weapons.

You can find all details about the concept of the event here :
Trade Caravan Concept Page

Schedule and organisation

  • The Caravan will depart on Wednesday 7 at 7:30PM UK Time (20:30PM CET - 2:30PM EST).
  • The meeting point is the Trinsic West gate (inside town).
  • Gates will be provided from Luna Hall from 7:20PM until 8:00PM (the caravan will be on the road already).
  • Nine people will be carrying items for the Caravan, those will be engraved verite Longswords carried inside the main backpack of the caravanees.
  • The goal of the guards is to reach our destination with as much of those items as possible.
  • The Caravan will be led by N'athuk of [HLP] (though we expect him to die quite a few times being in front). There will be other caravan leaders to help keep some structure.

Please remember that dry-looting, rez-killing and other antisocial behavior is really just ruining your own fun in the long term. So we encourage everyone to make it a fair fight so it last longer to the benefit of everyone!

We hope to see many of you.

Trade Caravan 7 : The report E-mail

Hello fellow britannians,

I did my best to try and post the event report as early as possible, but as always, life has some tricks up its sleeves to divert you from your goals! So, the due report is here!

It is a very different report, for a very different evening Laughing

Those caravans have a different taste each time... last time it had the taste of hard dirt Tongue out

I won't delay it any longer... here goes the report!

 



A magic power had prevented me from awaking in Britannia, but close to the caravan depart time, the foul magic was lifted and I could make it to the town of Yew.

 

There I met Diomedes ([W]) but several other adventurers joined us rather quickly. It looked like a good start for an evening!

 

I waited a bit later than the scheduled time to allow everyone to join us. We soon were ready to go and I started a very short speech to remind everyone what was our destination of the day : the Town of Skara Brae!

 

Very surprisingly, there were no brigands in the surroundings unlike the other caravans. But one showed a moment before the caravan departed.

 

We then started our journey to the town of Skara Brae, still rather secure in the downtown of Yew.

 

As we were about to come out of the town of Yew, by the graveyard, a very nice surprise awaited us!

I think we can thank Faith for this feat *smiles*

 

We continued our journey when the skirmishes started in the middle of the Caravan. Embryo who had "escorted" us so far started to pick some fights in our ranks.

 

It didn't took him much time to take down some of our bold defenders.

 

We regrouped around the fallen warriors to ressurect them, then went back on the road. But Embryo wasn't ready to let us go that easily Laughing

 

We kept being attacked and pestered by our one-man army! And he dealt some serious blows in our ranks.

 

And at some points he decided not to let us kill him... darn! Still there and kicking!

 

Despite the fact we were in a large number, Embryo timed his attacks rather well and delayed us quite a few times! Dropping some paralyze fields aswell.. sneaky brigands!

 

And once again we have to wait to ressurect the dead defenders before we can continue. He might have been alone, he did a pretty nice job at delaying us again and again!

 

Finally! Skara Brae has been sighted and the end of our journey is near. Even if we didn't had that much casualties (compared to the previous caravan at least...) it took us a good 45 minutes to reach our destination.

 

We all regrouped outside the docks in the town of Skara Brae for the word of the end, then all our defenders went back to their affairs.

Thanks again to all the brave warriors who keep coming and defend the Caravan honor and prized possessions!!

 

A special thanks today will go to our red friend Embryo!

Congratulations sir, you gave us a very fun and entertaining evening!

I hope to see you again on the next Caravan!
