Do you know how many people I had to backstab to win the first age? and now we aren't even on the Hall of Heroes? Fluffy and I are going to have to shower for weeks to get the stains off our souls.

We are just doing the best we can to win within the games parameters, however I question the mechanics of the house size being being increased even further.

Imo it shuld have been decreased. It seems all firefly is trying to do is speed up the closing of the server at which stage most of us will walk away from shk. So it really makes no sense to me..

But then I remember the wheel spin bribes they gave me and I go back to farming.

Yeah h10 swallowed up all of former h1, 2/3s of h19 and h9.

Seeing that second age ended on Mir 1 so fast. Same could be said here too. Unless somebody contests you guys in the next two months in England.
