BERSERKER KILL had engaged "Escape & Conceal" mode in a nearby house after some recent recap shenanigans in which he was entirely outgunned and somewhat shot up. Energy depleted, he shut down. A foe stopped by to do more shooting, turned into a friend, and then was slain by another passer-by prior to BERSERKER awakening, leaving a corpse that significantly helped repair BK's damaged circuitry. Another day in the life of the nexus...
You step inside Quince Corner. (2022-06-11 12:37:06).
- You attempt to hide. You think you are hidden. (2022-06-11 12:54:02).
- Black Lantern Bearer, a Wraith, belonging to None, attacked you and hit for 2 points of death damage. This attack drained 5 MP from you. (2022-06-11 13:08:02).
- Mr Dalliard attacked you with a Rifle and hit for 4 points of piercing damage. Acid burst forth from your wounds and burned him for 5 points of Acid damage! (2022-06-11 13:08:08).
- (3 times) Black Lantern Bearer, a Wraith, belonging to None, attacked you and hit for 2 points of death damage. This attack drained 5 MP from you. (2022-06-11 13:08:32).
- Mr Dalliard attacked Black Lantern Bearer, a(n) Wraith with a Sub-Machine Gun , killing it! (2022-06-11 13:08:34).

- Mr Dalliard said, "Pesky wraith" (2022-06-11 13:09:17).
- Mr Dalliard said, "Would you care to donate any Soul Ice for saving you+" (2022-06-11 13:10:10).
- You feel the effects of Greater Invulnerability fade. (2022-06-11 14:15:07).
- Hypno Toad attacked Mr Dalliard with a Sledgehammer , killing him! (2022-06-11 16:13:25).
- You feel the essence of the blood you have spilled enter your body, mending flesh and bone. (2022-06-11 16:57:18).
Edit: BK will save some ice in case he sees you around town though, because that was solid.

Mr Dalliard was sleeping and got attacked by that Wraith and after a very quick dirt nap, came back to seek revenge on it. Mr Dalliard is big believer in taking revenges and holding grudges (up to a certain point). Noticed the Wraith fleeing inside that building and there was a bit of friendly fire, which was quite unintentional, sorry about that.

That Wraith did great damage to Mr Dalliard's official Defusing Squad business, it stole all the MP! Ruining a days work. And to add to the insult, the defuse targets found Mr Dalliard. That was a bad day for Mr Dalliard.

I now have two characters who hit level 10 within a week of each other. Which is funny, because one is a dedicated lockpicker. I think I'm just running around and goofing off too much, and that leveling is a bit quicker for most people.

Still, there is a lot of fun stuff to run into this Breath. Some of it might not kill you! (yet)

Well, this week has been productive.

erikune has hit level 20 recently, stepping into Lich and figuring out the details on how Phylactery works. Also checking out how effective Infuse is at getting XP. A Quick Brown Fox had recently joined the Nexus as well, and has just hit level 10 for Myrmidon entry.

Set o Lockpicks keeps focusing on what they do best, at level 16 already and getting pretty close to the 1000 breath locks picked badge. (along with the nonexistent 5000 career milestone) Meanwhile, Scribalist has decided to ignore all advice and eat/drink themselves into a stupor. On the plus side, only level 5 so far... or already level 5 despite not doing any XP granting activities. Depending on how you look at it.

TSF raided DND and stirred up Hurricane Catton.

Logged in and saw I was dead, but not even a minute after our flag was capped!
- Lune of The Sanguine Fire has taken your faction standard! (2022-08-31 00:19:15).
- Your spirit feels drawn to a new body and you quickly enter it. You have respawned. (2022-08-31 00:20:12).
I'm sure there's some juicy targets still inside, so I alert the faction, respawn, and head home. There's even one standing outside waiting to greet me!
- You attack Stevie Budd with your Tailwhip and hit for 16 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:21:15).
Step inside and whoa! There's still seven or eight more! Time to put the kettle on.
- You attack Yukari with your Tailwhip and hit for 18 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:21:36).
- You attack a Gaming Mac with your Tailwhip and hit for 12 points of slashing damage. (2022-08-31 00:21:42).
The Gaming Mac wisely bailed before taking any more damage. Slipped through my claws, and I don't like it.
- You attack Eyr with your Tailwhip and hit for 18 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:21:48).
- You attack Haweh with your Tailwhip and hit for 13 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:22:05).
- You attack Iona with your Tailwhip and hit for 18 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:22:47).
- You attack Lune with your Tailwhip and hit for 20 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:23:06).
Whew. SH is clear of raiders and I've got 11 AP to spare. I think about curling up on the couch for a nap when I hear a familiar 'Beep! Beep!' Miss Frizzle swings the Magic School Bus around, opens the door, and says, "Get in, loser; we're going raiding!"

Turns out, while I was cleaning house, my friends went for a recap and broke in to TSF's place. I eye my MP levels and figure I'll do what I can with Strike of Cain.
- Your liege, Miss Frizzle has issued an urgent summons to their presence! (2022-08-31 00:24:13).
- You heed your liege's call. With a soft whoosh and a jolt of pain, you disappear in a flash of hellish, brimstone-laced smoke and re-appear at your liege's side. (2022-08-31 00:24:16).
Crap, five people inside. Well, best get to work. Forts are still topped off, so it's gonna be a bit harder.
- You attack Long-tailed Nightjar with your Tailwhip and hit for 8 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:26:03).
- You attack Mettaton with your Tailwhip and hit for 12 points of slashing damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:27:06).
- You attack Sly the Yeoman with your Tailwhip and hit for 16 points of unholy damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:27:56).
- You attack A Malfunctioning Robot with your Tailwhip and hit for 18 points of unholy damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:28:05).
- You attack Tassadar with your Tailwhip and hit for 18 points of unholy damage. This was enough to kill them! (2022-08-31 00:28:08).
That's everyone! But oh, no, we have our flag, but no SH to claim our spoils! We're scrambling to get it placed somewhere, anywhere, when a couple of familiar faces show up: Yukari and a Gaming Mac. Yukari couldn't keep her mouth shut, so I had to go for her, first. Down at an empty bar, I go to land a SoC killing blow for some more AP, but disaster! I missed and don't have an AP left! Looks like the Gaming Mac eludes me once again. I know who my first target's gonna be next time we pay the Fire a visit, and that's not just because it's first alphabetically!

Anyway, Scarlet McCrea brought the puppies for a walk to clear house again.
- Rex, a Hellhound, belonging to Scarlet McCrea, attacked Yukari, killing them! (2022-08-31 00:31:51).
- Scarlet McCrea attacked a Gaming Mac with a Caustic Bolt spell , killing him! (2022-08-31 00:32:47).
Another McCrea comes through in the clutch with a SH set, and we grab the flag!
- Dimentia_McCrea sends the faction this message: A faction stronghold has just been created. (2022-08-31 00:37:14).
- Miss Frizzle of The Demons Next Door has taken the faction standard of The Sanguine Fire! Your faction gains 192 points of renown! (2022-08-31 00:37:25).
Went from cleared to recapped to set and capped in eighteen minutes.

And for those of you keeping track at home, The General killed 11 of the 15 members of the faction in a 7-minute span. I love being an IB.

--Great

Two anecdotes to share.

First, I have now had 2 characters survive overnight twice in a row. What is the Nexus coming to?

Secondly, it took roughly 60 hours from point of joining B5 for my first kill. And given GreatCatatonic's post above, we should have some sympathy for the victim:

- You search and find a Book. You also find A Malfunctioning Robot. They were hiding. (2022-08-31 08:39:43).
- You emote, " wanders along the aisles, smiling at the quaint fiction. He pulls up abruptly, whispering, "My my! What are you? Let's find out..."" (2022-08-31 08:40:49).
- (4 times) You attack A Malfunctioning Robot with your Kick and hit for 3 points of impact damage. You gain 4 XP. (2022-08-31 08:41:06).

T1 COMBAT SPAM

- You say, "Too big to be a Roomba!" (2022-08-31 08:41:30).

MORE T1 COMBAT SPAM

- You say, "I know! You are a pinata full of life experience, just waiting to be burst open..." (2022-08-31 08:42:28).

MORE T1 COMBAT SPAM

- You attack A Malfunctioning Robot with your Kick and hit for 3 points of impact damage. You gain 4 XP. This was enough to kill them! You gain an additional 17 Experience Points! (2022-08-31 08:42:48).


Sweet, sweet XP for the level 4 mortal. Send moar not-Roombas?
