Also, just saw the Kingdom of Kaos war. I'm so disappointed that we were...

...wait for it...


Lochnivar November 19 2010 12:04 PM EST

Shouldn't you be putting a second set of sunglasses right about now Horatio?

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] November 19 2010 1:24 PM EST

*Facepalm* That was so bad... So very very bad.

Demigod November 21 2010 10:02 AM EST

We're attacking The Devasters. Let the week of hell begin.

Prep and drink potions! Let's not lose this fight.

Corath November 22 2010 5:48 AM EST

i need some one real active to take care of my account for a week or two as im not gonna be able top play much

startinbg from this evening =/

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 22 2010 11:19 AM EST

war, what is it good for...vengeance! go prep, we are spanking us some devaster's booty today again! ; )

Corath November 22 2010 1:10 PM EST

still need a sitter for my Scout.. got mount, shrooms and every thing needed.. would hate to waste my thirst lol

Demigod November 22 2010 1:20 PM EST

You might want to send a guild mail. Some of the players, like Ranger, rarely come into CB.

QBOddBird November 22 2010 8:13 PM EST

There's only about an hour left until the guild war starts, and several members haven't prepped yet. If you see this, and you haven't prepped, run over there and hit that button to help us out and earn yourself a wee bit of free XP!

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 22 2010 8:16 PM EST

Hey, I just started playing S&F today, gotta say its kinda fun. I look forward to joining you guys soon.

My name on there is the same as here.

Demigod November 22 2010 8:28 PM EST

Rip (Canibus) and Freekie (BabyCakes) are the two largest who have yet to prep. But I think it's 1:30am for Rip, so he probably won't be joining this fight.

And glad to see you've joined the cult, Xeno. Keep growing your character and we'll let you know when there's a slot (remind us periodically!). Dudemus got stuck with the role of slot manager, so keep your eyes on him.

zev November 23 2010 12:26 AM EST

Slot Manager sounds kinky. Nice title.

Demigod November 23 2010 8:34 AM EST

Revenge fight #3. Go.

Canibus November 23 2010 8:42 AM EST

Let them feel our power :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 23 2010 9:01 AM EST

xeno, you have an invite waiting for ya bud! ; )

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 24 2010 9:25 AM EST

we are spanking the devasters again today, please prep for offense. i will be away until friday so if anyone needs something please message one of the other officers.

Demigod November 25 2010 11:23 AM EST

Battle 5/7 with The Devasters is initiated. Prep up. And great job not losing a single one so far. It's wonderful to see how quickly we're flying past all of these other competitive guilds.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 25 2010 11:32 AM EST

All ready for the next fight :D

Darkwalker [Jago] November 25 2010 11:52 AM EST

5/7? You mean....that we are allowed to hit back only 7 times???? After this, only 2 more times?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 25 2010 12:07 PM EST

nah, we just set this week for daily farming against them. we can attack them more than that for sure! ; )

Demigod November 25 2010 12:09 PM EST

:) Well, I did call it the "Week of Hell," but if their rank improves back up to ours, we might give them a reminder.

Demigod November 25 2010 4:22 PM EST

We're getting attacked as well.

Kirimori November 27 2010 6:25 AM EST

Just wanted to let you guys know that I am usually out on Saturdays so if you need me to prep for war on Saturdays, it would be good if you could start earlier. Probably 8AM EST latest? We have a good bunch of Lvl +100's so me dropping out shouldn't be too bad.


{cb1}dyno November 27 2010 8:31 AM EST

I sent a mail to the guild - in case someone didn't get it I'm interested in exchanging CBD for someone to purchase shrooms for me as I'm strapped for USD at the moment. Mount expires in 4 hours, let me know! :)

{cb1}dyno November 27 2010 8:33 AM EST

... just realized that may need to go in FS/WTB - if that's the case let me know and I can make a thread - not trying to break any rules here :x

AdminShade November 27 2010 9:55 AM EST

don't think this casual mention would require a wtb :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 27 2010 11:12 AM EST

our daily attack on the devasters is now on, please prep.

Kingkiller November 27 2010 11:20 AM EST

Would it be possible to get a guild invite I'm only level 17, but im guildless :(

If so toons name is Drknow

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 27 2010 11:27 AM EST

i think we may need to resurrect the second guild as a waiting area for the main guild as we have two waiting and no open slots. also, as far as i know, there are no others playing two accounts so we now have fifty active members in the main guild.

with that being said, we will need someone fairly active who can take lead of the second guild and be around to invite others and if we end up with a slot in the main guild we will invite the highest player over.

please let me know if you would like to lead the second guild and i will see about getting you invited to it and handed the lead. the bonus isn't as big in that guild of course but it is better than nothing for sure! ; )

Kingkiller November 27 2010 11:36 AM EST

I'm game :D

Demigod November 27 2010 11:43 AM EST

I'm interested in exchanging CBD for someone to purchase shrooms for me ...

I don't see how that's possible given how the shroom purchases work. If you don't have a credit card or debit card, you may just have to sell CBD for cash into a PayPal account to do this.

Demigod November 27 2010 12:50 PM EST

Dyno pointed out that it's easy to do this while someone is sitting for the account. :)


Demigod November 27 2010 7:05 PM EST

I just went to buy shrooms. I entered my credit card info and ended up getting a German screen saying that the transaction had an error. I doubled back and tried it again. Same thing. Then my phone rang. Bank of America was letting me know that there was suspicious activity on my credit card. Um, thanks. I guess it was BoA not letting me purchase my virtual items from Germany.

But my debit Mastercard worked without a problem. I'm now the annoyed owner of 500 shrooms.

Demigod November 27 2010 7:06 PM EST

Hmm. Considering I also just bought a computer from Canada, that may have caused the flag.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 27 2010 7:38 PM EST

You know what sucks, the shroom sale started literally about an hour after I had bought $5 worth of shrooms. -_-

If I had known there was going to be a sale I wouldve waited and got the $10 pack >_<

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 28 2010 10:04 AM EST

we have some mooyoks picking a fight with us on our day of rest before our guild dungeons, time to kick some bootay!

QBOddBird November 28 2010 11:56 AM EST

Sorry I haven't recorded fights lately. I've got a much more full work schedule at my new job, plus thanksgiving activities/events have stolen a lot of my time. I'll try to catch what I can.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 28 2010 11:57 AM EST

do what ya can when ya can! we will take what we can get or get motivated to do it as well. ; )

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 29 2010 8:11 AM EST

we need everyone to prep for both defense and the guild dungeon raid! ; )

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] November 29 2010 8:18 AM EST

Just prepped for the Raid :D

Demigod November 29 2010 6:31 PM EST

Our next GD boss:

Boss Monster: L110 Invisible Threat, 7,814,400 HP Scout

This will be hard. Three of our top five guys are warriors, which means we're at a disadvantage against scouts. We have enough cash (woo!) to go ahead and run it tomorrow, but I think we need a bit more time.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] November 29 2010 6:37 PM EST

I've been wanting to try my hand in creating some gaming video's. So if you could let me know what program you use OB I could help out with recording the fights.

Demigod November 29 2010 7:07 PM EST

CamStudio. It's free.

QBOddBird November 30 2010 2:43 AM EST

I got it recorded, so I'll upload it sometime during my free time (wait, I have that?) tomorrow.

Also, just got a new phone today and it can play CB! Awesome stuff! :D

Corath November 30 2010 3:44 AM EST

i didnt even get to hit the last dungeon boss so dont think we have to wait a lot to be able to take the next one down

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] November 30 2010 12:40 PM EST

we are both attacking and defending today, please prep as you can!

Lochnivar November 30 2010 12:43 PM EST

so I found the lvl 80 dungeon key... still no sign of the danged lvl 70 one though

Lochnivar November 30 2010 1:19 PM EST

and on the next mission I find the missing key... wish I'd mad that post days ago.

Phrede December 1 2010 10:42 AM EST

The three pornos are attacking us again - lock and load guys

Demigod December 1 2010 1:48 PM EST

Decisions, decisions...

Two weapons

Option 1:
190-270 damage (230 avg)
Con +127
Raises my health from 756k to 830k
Gives me damage of 44,441-63,153 (median = 53,793)

Option 2:
117-343 damage (230 avg)
Str +227
Leaves my health at 756k
Gives me damage of 30,022-88,014 (median = 59,018)

Victimizer December 1 2010 1:50 PM EST

The former would be my preference... GO HP!

zev December 1 2010 1:50 PM EST

Option 1 in my opinion

Demigod December 1 2010 10:39 PM EST

The winner was option 3, another weapon that dropped in a tavern fight right after I made the post.

And it's time for a State of the Guild update. I would have put this in a guild mail, but some of you are hoarders when it comes to mail. Remember that your mailboxes do have limits, and we CANNOT send out any guild mails while your boxes are full. Delete 'em.

Our current standings are listed here:

6 are 100+
2 are 90-99
8 are 80-89
11 are 70-79
8 are 60-69
4 are 50-59
5 are 40-49
6 are 1-39

For comparison, here are the standings from two weeks ago:

5 are 100+
1 is 90-99
3 are 80-89
9 are 70-79
12 are 60-69
10 are 50-59
2 are 40-49
8 are 1-39

Worth noting: We kicked out a couple of duplicate characters and inserted some fresh blood. The 80+ range continues to gain players at a healthy rate, and we had zero players fail to log in today. Even after our loss today, we're ranked #44. We just keep getting stronger. :D

Canibus December 2 2010 1:26 PM EST

I wonder, who here have prepped as a result of guild mail?
To this date it've never happened that Ive done that, I check guild, then I see we're about to fight, then I head over to mail to delete the msg. Anyone else? :O

lostling December 2 2010 1:34 PM EST

me neither

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 1:38 PM EST

even if it never helps with prepping, that is the easiest way we have to get in touch with the entire guild at once as some do no play cb any longer.

please keep your guild mail boxes cleared out for this reason if no other.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 2 2010 1:38 PM EST

oh, and go prep, we are beating on the devasters again!

Demigod December 2 2010 3:35 PM EST

With pretty much daily fights, there's no longer the same sense of necessity with reminding people to prep. It was a bit more important when we were only running two per week. As such, I have no problem halting the standard reminders. But you'll still get them for upcoming guild dungeons. Those are just too important (read: expensive).

Regardless, keep the mailboxes empty.

Canibus December 2 2010 5:28 PM EST

actually i never included the point about full mail boxes, but it was in my thoughts :)

Wasp December 2 2010 5:45 PM EST

Also prep for defence too :)

Demigod December 2 2010 10:14 PM EST

Guild dungeon tomorrow or Saturday?

Demigod December 3 2010 2:16 PM EST

GD on Saturday at EXP time. The first officer to arrive will initiate it.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] December 4 2010 2:54 AM EST

Look for the 4 post (3rd reply) for a good reference on when to fight in dungeons.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 4 2010 11:15 AM EST

guild dungeon run today, please prep as this one might be close!

Demigod December 4 2010 5:46 PM EST

Someone please record this. I'm not sure if OB is available, but it's likely that I'll miss the replay. :(

Phrede December 5 2010 4:13 AM EST

I missed the replay - did we win?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 5 2010 7:30 AM EST

We won the dungeon, we lost the defense.

Demigod December 5 2010 10:05 AM EST

The replay isn't on the YouTube channel. :(

QBOddBird December 5 2010 1:38 PM EST

I recorded it, but I fell asleep and the recording is like an hour long, will have to shorten it before posting

Just give me a little time, I had a 13 hour shift last night and I'm about to leave for my shift today :( I've only had about an hour of downtime where I wasn't sleeping

I have 2 dungeons to upload whenever I find the free time, and I will do both at that time

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] December 5 2010 1:57 PM EST

you all still play f&s?

Wasp December 5 2010 2:29 PM EST


Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 5 2010 3:33 PM EST

a few have dropped out of the game but many more have stayed with it, we actually have a full guild of 50 active and one person in our other guild waiting to get over when we get the room.

AdminShade December 7 2010 4:16 PM EST

couldn't fight my thirst today, will be back tomorrow

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 9 2010 10:02 AM EST

corath, one of the highest levels in our guild at 129, is no longer able to play due to time constraints. his character is a scout. he would like someone who can be active to take over that character so if anyone is interested contact him over on s&f or me here. thanks!

lostling December 9 2010 10:03 AM EST

me and alisa will be going to uk until 24 dec.... internet will be intermittent :) just so you ppl know

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 9 2010 10:05 AM EST

thanks for the heads up lostling, would you mind sending me a mail message on s&f, i keep those in my box until people return just so i can easily keep track of who is afk.

corath reminded me that he has over 800 shrooms on that account as well! ; )

BluBBen December 9 2010 10:41 AM EST

Is there any idea for me to join at this stage?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 9 2010 1:55 PM EST

depending on what happens with corath, we should end up with a slot. do you already have a character or would you like to play corath's blubben?

BluBBen December 9 2010 2:13 PM EST

I'm not having a char of my own, but would rather not take a too large char since I woun't be able to keep up at the same pace.

Tal offered me to take his char so he could take corath's. What do you think of that?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 9 2010 2:26 PM EST

that is fine with me, either one would be good and it is not irreversible. if you decide at some point you would like to make your own we would just need to kick one out to make room for the other.

the rules of the game are that you can only play two accounts on a temporary basis, so if you do decide to make another it would be best to quit logging into all but one.

if you do take on another players character, just please state your cb user name in the character description so we can keep track of who is playing who! ; )

Demigod December 10 2010 6:14 PM EST

Did you guys ever finalize a decision about Corath's character?

Demigod December 10 2010 7:30 PM EST

I did not get a chance to see last week's guild dungeon fight. However, I heard that we finished with ease, leaving two guys still on the bench. And that was against a scout, which put us as a slight disadvantage.

Next up is:
Boss Monster: L120 Biggie the Pimp, 4,549,600 HP Warrior

If you guys are ready, we can run this dungeon on Monday. That gives us a few days of notice.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 11 2010 9:28 AM EST

monday sounds great to me!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 13 2010 11:47 AM EST

guild dungeon raid is activated, please prep!

Demigod December 15 2010 1:01 AM EST

The next GD is:
Boss Monster: L130 The Count, 11,318,400 HP Scout

I doubt we're ready to rumble with this guy, but we might be as early as Monday. I find it rather difficult to judge these dungeon bosses.

We're already ranked #38 in our server. That's awesome work, guys. We'll have to throw a virtual party when we break the top 20. Since Ranger isn't here to refuse, I nominate him to bring the virtual kegs. Lostling, you bring the virtual stripper.

QBOddBird December 15 2010 4:44 PM EST

Sorry to all about my lack of participation, between working 50 hours a week, trying to catch my BA, and running the Charity, I'm pretty much sold out on time. I promise to upload all the videos I've got as soon as I can, and I'll be back to active duty as soon as possible as well.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 17 2010 9:09 AM EST

please prep for both offense and defense! ; )

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 20 2010 10:49 AM EST

guild raid today! ; )
