Pink’s First Shroud

We completed Pink’s first Shroud Wednesday night.  It was a total blast.  It almost did not happen.  Pink came home from after-school care with a splitting headache. I gave her some Motrin and sent her up to her room.  She slept through dinner.  But she perked up at 8PM EST.

We had a total of 11 people with the help of Tholgrin, Evennote and BonnieBew.  They were awesome, even though raids are run differently server to server.

I kept updating Twitter as we went through each part of the Shroud.  Lag kept trying to be that missing 12th player, but was still doable.  Mostly as we finished each section.  Loot table loading 😀

Pink leveled as soon as we entered the Shroud.

The Portals seemed to be the hardest part of the quest.  Geoff Hanna was having sword insecurities as he tried to find a good portal beater.  It took so long that it seemed that we were healing the portals.

Part Two went swimmingly well. The named critters went down one try!

Part Three with puzzles went great too. Only one death when someone who shall not be named, Geoff Hanna, tried to outrun the blades.

Part 4, the blades insisted on chasing me before Harry dropped down. Seriously, watch the video. The game tried to take out the cleric. Harry went down in two rounds with no one taking a trip to the penalty box.

Everyone shrined and then we all died as intended. There was no tricking the Shroud virgins this time around .

Only one death in part 5. Otherwise, it was a blast. BonnieBew had a present for Pink. A mini Harry pit fiend companion!!!! Pink was over the moon.

BonnieBew was also awesome enough to record the event and post it to her YouTube channel. I was thinking of streaming live in Twitch, but with three people running a raid from the same house during lag would be too much.

Thanks to everyone who worked to make Pink’s first Shroud something memorable. We truly have a great community of players. That is something we should all be proud of and focus on it.

Planning #OperationPinkShroud

We have been in plans for the last month for what we are calling #OperationPinkShroud.  Pink is level 18.  Close to 19.

Tonight is the night!  Tonight.  Pink is so excited.  She was vibrating when I dropped her off at school.

The biggest logistic issue that we had is that Halfling Commandos and Torchwood are small guilds.  Torchwood is where the non-halflings go.  So it is the same number of people 😀  Luckily, Twitter came to the rescue!!!  Tholgrin, Evennote and BonnieBew are all coming to give her a hand.  Hopefully LAG does not try to be the 13th player tonight.

I had hoped to stream the event live through Twitch, but I am worried about it introducing lag.  I really want this to go smoothly for her.  We most likely will be making Pink “Raid Princess”.  She will get all the items and shards that she needs to build a weapon!

Wish us luck!
