Rabbit Invasion Response

The world was invaded by thousands of rabbits this past weekend; 38 players and 5 NPCs responded to the call to help stave off the fluffy horde. In spite of the many rabbits slain during those long 49 hours, 191 were still on the loose when Armageddon cleaned up the world.

And sadly, the vile creatures managed to murder two of our own during the last day of the hunt. Chreadus the novice magician was the first victim of the vicious lepus. He was followed hours later by Stome, who apparently did not learn his lesson from last year (when he was the sole rabbit-induced fatality).

Final ranking and kill counts:

1 – Levek, 2016
2 – Calvin, 1011
3 – Juanka, 350
4 – Dudemeister, 326

Thanks to all who participated and those who cheered them on, and congratulations to Levek, this year’s winner!


Rabbit Hunt Final Results!

A total of 38 players (and 3 rather territorial NPCs) participated in the rabbit hunt. Among the former group, two hunters soon separated themselves the rest, vying with each other for top place while maintaining a huge lead ahead of the others. Third place changed hands many times, inspiring such lust for rabbit blood that at least one hobbit was mistakenly killed for having too many letters in common.

Ultimately, the top position was claimed and held by Pudge, who will be bestowed with the promised Fabulous Prize after he catches up on sleeping, eating, and all those other less important activities rightly set aside in order to fulfill his destiny.

The top NPC was Student, at whose hand 66 rabbits died with a confused look on their faces.

And then, with only 5 minutes before Armageddon brought an end to the hunt, while 294 invader rabbits still plagued the land:
On Moonset 14, 645 Stome [20] was killed by a little rabbit.

Final ranking and kill counts:

1 – Pudge, 2453
2 – Levek, 2021
3 – Lavalamp, 572
4 – Balthamal, 563
5 – Moab, 464
6 – Yamm, 370
7 – Pewdie, 241
8 – Winter, 204
9 – Spoo, 163
10 – Garacaius, 149

Rankings and counts for ALL participants can be found on the Adventurers’
Board in Tantallon.

Rabbit Hunt this weekend! Fabulous prize for winner!

Hippity Hoppity, hardy heroes and heroettes!

Word has reached us recently that the realm may realize a recurrence of rabbity rebellion this weekend. A plague of little rabbits has been spotted in the distance; their first scouts are expected soon after Armageddon finishes shouting about the end of the world.

In order to avert the dark times that surely await if we allow these creatures to spread unchecked, a prize, never seen before in the mortal realm, will be awarded to the player who kills the most little rabbits that form part of this invasion.*

Rabbit hunt rankings will be shouted periodically throughout the event.

Easter reboot begins this Saturday 4 April at roughly 1pm UTC, which translates to 9am Eastern US time (with Daylight Saving). The hunting will conclude at the end of the reboot, 49ish hours later.

You can also expect some Easter Egg hunts this weekend.

*Rabbits which already inhabit our world regularly do not contribute towards hunt standings.

Run, Bunny Run

The Easter’s “Run, Bunny Run” event is over! The irrefutable winner is
Precision, who was active through all of the population peaks and
invented the concept of bunny ranches. He was generally making surgical
butterfly axe demolition strikes that left only smouldering craters
behind. Levek came second and Baichu third! In the end, the rampant
bunny populations were subdued but not altogether defeated.

1. Precision: 894
2. Levek: 237
3. Baichu: 117
4. Pumita: 103
5. Yamm: 59
6. Brick: 46
7. Dreamweaver: 21
8. Pulverizer: 11
9. Raederle: 7
10. Spoo, Emeritus: 6

Some Easter highlights:

Emeritus decided to spread the holiday cheer and populated the Tantallon
crossroads with skeletal and mummified bunnies. (Log in Otter’s blog,
which also has the backstory of where all the bunnies came from.)

Otter (98, excluded from list due to being an overpowered organizer)
joined forces with Precision to clear up the arctic areas of a mad
lepine infestation, and still has nightmares of bunnies that go “OMG

Lizard guard, sergeant and mage killed altogether 22 bunnies (the Issla
do not believe in Easter bunnies), and Student studiously stopped one.
One brave bunny (descendant of the rare breed of bandanna-wearing desert
bunnies) hid in the thraxi hyf and according to tale lived there
happily ever after until the end of Easter, chatting up the high guards.

There were a handful Easter Egg hunts as well, all of which were won by
someone! At least Levek, Brick, Pandora, Precision and Otter went on mad
egg-hoarding sprees.

The hunt for rabbit treasure

To celebrate the ongoing event of bunnies and eggs, an epic Armour of Rabbit will randomly spawn on corpses of hares, jackrabbits, rabbits or bunnies.

While lauded to be comparable to Armour of Gaius on white brimstone by itself, the armour is rumoured to have an additional “easter egg” functionality that is unknown to our reporters at this time.

The news has predictably painted the forests red in Easter Bunny blood, causing warm reminescing of the turkey massacre a few months back.

“You are now hunting Rabbit.”
Oh yes we are!

How many have you caught?
