Hey Everyone!

After some player feedback, we've decided that Rikoo's old towns were taking up good real estate that players can use.  We're holding a special, unofficial-official event to wipe Rikooville off the map.  

Rikooville will be defended, so this will not be an easy task.  The player that succeeds, however, gets a unique "GM Slayer" medal for their efforts.  

While there are two other GM Rikoo towns available to siege, they are only for bragging rights.  Only the player that sieges Rikooville at [134|38] will receive the medal.

These towns are ripe for the picking now, so have at it!

3 impassable squares... Hmmm 🚧🚧🚧

That leaves 5 squares to siege from ⚔, 1 being a small mountain 🌄 currently guarded by a bear 🐻
I can see that many will be intent 🎪 on setting up there.

🎶🎵 I predict a riot.... ♫♪

I have no intention of seiging Rikooville, and I doubt I would get a look in any which way, but here's a partial scout report i manage to acquire, to let you all know what you're potentially up against:

The second army wasn't there in an earlier report I saw?  I can understand building new orcs, but adding these praetorian troops and/or elementals seems unfair?

The praetorian troops were in the first army in earlier reports. As far as i can see only some kobolds were built.

Commander name "The hammer of the law" and "Terrified kobold" names go hand in hand.

Yeah I think those troops were already in there, Warty. Just the 750ish kobolds are new.

How goes the mountain defense, Thirion :p ?

A big congratulations go out to Thirion, who successfully sieged Rikooville out of existence.  The fighting was intense and the forces overwhelming...and with some degree of effort Rikooville was overrun.

Thank you to everyone who participated, and condolences to those troops lost in the name of a unique medal.
