After getting on for 3 hours of combat and four mutual challenges, Zakath won the Javalon Challenge 3 games to 1. My congratulations go to him, for putting convincing display of fighting ability.
Losing 2 out of the 4 challenges while link-dead did sting a touch, but such is the nature of this world. You win some, you lose some. And he clearly proved he had the ability to kill me when I had a perfect connection, and able to watch my own inco
mpetence without interruption.
This is possibly something to consider during a Gem quest however, my connection to Avalon via telnet seemed fine and yet my connection to the Javalon website seemed more than a little flaky.
If anyone wants to teach me defence (anyone above poor that is), please form an orderly queue.
