    So. I got knocked down today. Thumped. It was at one of the Big Temples half way through GE lv4. Picked the wrong army. I got smoked by AI bombard units durning the second wave of battle. Called the troops back. I was left with 1 (one) Heavy and 3 (three) Rogues. All seriously wounded. I was going for a 50/50 shot at a Ritual Flame. Oh. I know. For you Big Shots that's nothing. But for me and my city? We want the defence. But I ran out of troops today. I'll have to wait until tomorrow when my Traz and my Hideouts can replace my dead little men.

    But here is the up shot: I played a great song in Memoriam (in memory of foo) of my troops...

    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down

    He drinks a Lager drink, he drinks a Cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him of the best times

    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down
    I get knocked down, but I get up again
    You are never gonna keep me down...



    Rock on. Live to fight another day. :)

    At my Dragon Palace in Fel Dranghyr I have this sign posted out front: “Polivate. Become friends and Taverinze. Attack, Pillage and Plunder as you see fit. I will do the same.”

    I’m think of putting it in neon-lights. Because I actually believe in it. And I follow it. One day I’ll run through my neighbourhood like a naked hippy polishing and motivating while yelling “Free love! Free love!” Other days I’m Elfish the Fairly-Unhinged as I attack everyone and mumble “burn neighbours burrrrrrrrrrrrn…”

    ~ahem~

    To that end I've been on a bit of a tear this week. I had been pretty quiet for awhile. I was levelling up my GBs and getting to know my new guild so I pretty much ignored my neighbours. A couple of wood-peckers attacked my city but hit the wall of my 25/81% defence and quietly fluttered away. But then things changed. It became our 3rd week together. Because of the Carnival Festivities. And? I no longer loved my neighbour as myself.

    I hit everyone. Top to bottom. Bottom to top. 24/7. Full on Invincible Rogue Shield (©2017 Elf Inc.) and 1 (one) Heavy, 2 (two) ages ahead. Squish. Blood shed. Pillage. Free stuff everywhere! Especially? “Johnny? Tell them what the Elf has won.”

    Things from these brand new items players don’t have on the proper “collection timer” yet:

    Villas
    Mansions
    Bridges
    Masquerade Ball thingies
    Awesome Docks

    Oh. Yeah. Thanks Carnival!!! FPs, piles of coins, baskets of goodies. All. Mine.

    I got this note from a player in my hood: “Dear Jerk Face. Why are you suddenly hitting my new bridge everyday?!?!?!”

    There MAY have been a swear word in there. Won’t say. Here was my response:

    “Because you are in my neighbourhood. Sorry for your loss.”

    But I COULD HAVE said this… “I’ve hit you 4 (four) days in a row. At the exact same time every day. 22:50ish FoE time. Every time I’ve harvested 2 FPs off of you. You’ve never collected earlier. And? You’ve never changed your defensive army… 2 (two) spearmen. See you tomorrow. :-)”

    Perhaps this shall be my new theme song…
