And what a day it was! We had a new sinkhole in our field, but we just wandered away from it so that it wasn't in our way and kept right on fighting.
Sixteen people took to the field, while two watched.
We started off with two different class games. With eight on each side of the field, the first game went rather quickly. The uphill team was simply slaughtered, but that is mostly because Prada decided to play a fairy.
Yes, there are monsters in Amtgard. And Prada decided to play the first one on our field: the fairy.
The fairy, denoted by the orangish wings that Prada is wearing in the picture, is meant to be nothing more than an annoyance: something that dies quickly and has a lot of escape mechanisms to its name. And it was fun.
In the second mutual annihilation game, Prada returned as his normal healer self, and the game was a little more balanced. That game lasted for a good, long while with a healer on each side throwing resurrect spells around like they were made of candy.
After that second game, we paused for a water break. Then, we came back with a vengeance and rolled into one of our favorite game types: the minion game.
Fully clad in our class garb, we chased each other down through three rounds of minion, until everyone belonged to the same team. We took another water break after those three rounds, then switched out into an old favorite of everyones: the gun game.
Once the gun game ended, we set up a ditch line and wore ourselves out in battle after battle for a good 45 minutes.
Finally, exhausted, the brave warriors headed home until the following week.
