Come join my army of darkness in this addictive little game.....



Ravenblack



There is also a yahoo group which goes with the game called the Freedom Trade Alliance....



Freedom Trade Alliance



It is age restricted so you'll need a yahoo log-in to see it, but it contains maps of the city and quest information which is really invaluable. </div>

Celerity Quest



HA!! Evil game, I will still defeat you <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/angry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I am on a quest for celerity, basically that means that instead of regaining an action point every 30 minutes, each level of celerity (and there are 3) knocks 5 minutes off your recovery time so in this case I will get back 1 action point every 25 minutes.



To fulfill my quest I have to race around the city drinking in pubs and collecting items from the barmen (and pay 4000 Gold for the priveledge) The Quest began at Ruby and 13th at the Travellers Guild, I paid my money and was given my first location:


To gain a level of CELERITY, you must collect a series of 3 objects from different pubs. Run to Rogue's Tavern, at Qualms and 5th, and buy a drink - the bartender will provide you with the first object and more directions. You have three days to get there.


Right, Qualms and 5th, no big deal, I got there, drank some blood and was given a wrinkly bracelet for my trouble, next instruction:


He tells you now must run to The Lazy Sunflower, at Unicorn and 92nd to buy a drink from the barman there, for the next object. You have three more days.


Aargh!! From the top right hand corner of the map to the bottom left hand corner of the map in a mere 3 days?? Thank the FSM for the Transport Stations, I'm heading for Erato Station now to transfer over to Thalia Station which will then mean I'm 1 days travel away from the pub I need, cutting it closely much?? </div>

Nooo!



Don't use the stations, you'll fail the quest... <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Oh Uggbre!!



I'd forgotton <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo--> You could use the stations last time I took celerity. Not sure I'm physically able to make this quest. This happened last time as well and it's ridiculous.



<!--emo&:rant:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/angry1.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry1.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Edit: 66 Moves diagonally from my current position will get me to Unicorn/Umbrella and 49th/50th. It will then be another 43 moves directly south to the pub, I will not have all 63 action points for another 31 Hours and 6 minutes so it's going to take a total (including ordering the drink) of 117 moves to make this quest which is 58.5 Hours of action points.



I have 2 days 22 hours to get to the pub. <!--emo&:o--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/ohmy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ohmy.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Doggone it. I just wasted over 20 action points and nearly 400 blood points chasing a vampire hunter who still got away <!--emo&:rant:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/angry1.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry1.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Moral: Don't get distracted by Vampire Hunters when you're on a quest!!



Luckily I still have over 7 days to move from Unicorn and 72nd to Unicorn and 96th which is plenty, although I may have to eat some people on my way there now <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Stamina But No Blood <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I've just gained a second level of Stamina, but lost 1000 Blood Points getting it <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/angry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry.gif' /><!--endemo--> This means I have gone from 1480 Blood Points to 14 in two days <!--emo&:rant:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/angry1.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='angry1.gif' /><!--endemo--> (Flippin Vampire Hunter *grumble*)



I have now got 60 Action points for my Vamp until I can get back to the rank of "Elder" when it goes up again. Time to hunt some fresh, juicy Humans for a while I think!! </div>

Perthepshun



I have (with the amazing help of my Beloved Mr Red) completed my quest for Perception, I can now identify vampires with more than 200 coins on them (although I don't have thievery yet) and more importantly, identify Vampire Hunters in adjacent squares, thereby giving me the choice of whether I hunt them or not <!--emo&:aha:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/aha.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='aha.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I am now going to load up on potions of sprint before trying (once again) for a level of Celerity. I am now at the stage where I have access to so many action points, I have to stand still for days in order to get a full load, I need to cut down my recovery time and that requires Celerity.



Anyone want to place bets on whether I make it this time? </div>

Celerity....Again



For the umpty-umpth time (I've never actually tried to write that down before <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> ) I am trying for a level of Celerity, I will then gain Action Points back at the rate of one every 25 minutes, instead of 30 as it is at the moment.



I managed to get to my third (of three) pubs yesterday afternoon with a screaming 2 Action Points left....only to discover that it was actually my second (of three) pub and I have to get from Pine and 91st to Qualms and 41st (on the other side of the city) in 3 days <!--emo&:huh:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/huh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='huh.gif' /><!--endemo-->



My Beloved reckons it's possible, and I do still have my scroll of teleportation if it all goes horribly wrong, but what a dip!?!? I will have to go on a biting rampage if I succeed in this quest because I have no money left for another level of celerity <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

Celerity 2



Right then, after 7 days of heart attack inducing quest, I finally managed to gain Celerity 1. As usual, that's not enough so I've bitten enough people to be able to afford Celerity 2.



The Guilds moved last night so I have 3 days to get from where I am (Sycamore and 50th) to the Guild at Buzzard and 14th, should be do-able, just have to remember to pass by a bank when I'm within reach.



Bad News is that it's 6 pubs and 6 items this time, Good news is that I still have my scroll of teleportation.... Keep Stuff Crossed <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>

I wouldn't worry too much, don't forget you're faster now!



By my calcs, you can get from one corner of the board to the other in 3.5 days, so as long as you start with as many action points as possible, and recharge at each pub as much as possible, you shouldn't have any issues.



Good luck! <!--emo&:good:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/good.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='good.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Celerity 3



Yep, it's taken me a while to build up the 17,500 coins I needed for this quest, but I finally made it and hit the guilds last night. I started heading to my first pub and got there tonight with 2 days and 2 hours left to spare. I should be up to full action points by this time tomorrow, in time to buy my drink and head off for my next object.



I'm keeping track of my progress in gmail drafts so I don't underestimate the number of items I still have left to collect (12 in total) and making sure I stop at each pub to get back maximum action points before starting the next leg.



Wish me luck <!--emo&:ninja:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/ninja.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ninja.gif' /><!--endemo--> </div>
