February 27, 2007
The Assassins’ Guild is running a Bounty Hunter game, where everyone knows everyone else who’s playing, and you respawn every day. When you kill someone, the bounty on your head increases. It’s about the only variant playable with only four people – I predict some nasty grudges will be formed.
I saw the president of the Guild in Costcutters while walking to a VGDSoc meeting. If the meeting had started, he would have been safe, but when I found that we hadn’t yet got into the room, I went back to wait in ambush. I could have sworn he looked at me when he came out, so I ran towards him. I think if I had stepped behind a corner instead, I could have had an easy kill as he walked past me. As it was, I had to chase after him.
He promised vengeance with his new secret weapon, which I shall be doubly on my guard for.
Later, I tried to get into Claycroft to get the other two players, but that didn’t go so well. I got someone to buzz me in, but for some reason it didn’t work. I spent a while considering my options and then decided to just go home. As I went, I noticed that a door was open and started to run to it before it closed. What I failed to notice was that it was open because one of my targets had just came out holding a large super-soaker.
It shoots further than I run, so I conceded defeat. Tomorrow I shall get my revenge.
