What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Friday, October 16, 2009


It was brought to my attention by MillardtheMK that indeed the poor soldier had been shortchanged for his work in the lists. He has appealed to the Marshall of the Lists, and a decision has been rendered in his favor. Please see revised stats.

MillardtheMK=15,500 (not the previous 7,000)

Noah=9,000(because of Melissa's generous heart)

Melissa=2,100 (because of Noah's chivalrous nature)

Now, Millard being the strategist that he is, has things bouncing about under his dragon-crested helmet, I would encourage Noah and Melissa to track the Millard (yes, he is his own group/type) and see what he is up to.

Wall scribe I'm sorry but the closest I could get the points, assuming Noah would help isRose 8850, Noah8850, Myself8900, So I'm not sure what you wanna do. In case thats OK Noah needs to give rose 500pts, then I give Rose 5900, putting her at 8500 with noah. Then I give them both 300, putting them at 8800 and me at9000.
Next I give them both 50, putting the scores=Rose 8850, Noah8850, Myself8900.

Noah if this is OK with u plz comment, and if scribe is as generous as I hope we may all win:).
