RO.

I don't have the heart for pretty words right now.

Last Thursday's siege, we lost the fort we had won so valiantly the siege before. I wasn't there that day, since I had to work. You could say that ultimately it was the lack of numbers that did us in, but from what I can gather things were a lot messier and uglier than that. I won't go into details - I wasn't witness, and it would only be hearsay.

But this loss wasn't something that weighed on me heavily. Because that same day, out of the blue, Lumialle came back to RO again. And it was good - like the old days when WOE was little more than a distant rumour, when we could just mess around and have fun.

On Saturday, we went to Juno, the new city in the sky. Shin Jace led us there, a whole big group, giving us his unique tour guide commentary along the way. Juno itself is gorgeous. Ancient and stately buildings, mysterious pillars of light lining the streets, and bridges arcing across the heavens. We spent a while exploring the city. In a classroom, we all took seats while DarkDragon got up in front of the blackboard and started quizzing us on bits of historical trivia. We all got into the spirit of things, taking turns asking questions on different subjects. Shin Jace said something along the lines of, "Screw WOE, this is more fun," and I was inclined to agree. It was one of those moments you know you'll always remember.

Then during Sunday's siege, we helped our allies Slaughtered Saints get a Payon fort against ferocious opposition. Fatty Chubby Kitties, the owners of the fort, had most of the Payon Alliance helping them defend, and there were also other guilds vying with us for the same fort. I have no idea how many times I died during that siege - twenty? fifty? more? But our hard work paid off when Slaughtered Saints got their fort. Whatever else, we did a good thing that day.

Lunakitty called a guild meeting on Monday. The winds of change are blowing for Shin Ravenloft. Only time will tell whether it is for good or ill.

I haven't been playing for the past few days. But the news has been going around that several people have been hacked and their items stolen, which is always upsetting. Slaughtered Saints lost their fort in today's siege. And on top of all that I log on tonight to find that Neshtall has decided he has had enough and is quitting RO.

I don't know what I should be feeling after this week. Too tired for anything but sleep.
