We had our roller derby game last night - Grignano Bombadiers against Rolling Thunder. It was incredibly hard to get 5 people for some reason. It was Forcy (the Elves are doing an RPG war with the Orcs, and she had been captured and sent into limbo, from whence she TPed and got her skates on), malay (I IMed her and she was kind enough to join the team), and two subs from Zouk City Rollers, Shara and Bin (Miguel was supposed to sub but arrived about 5 seconds too late). We were thoroughly routed as Rolling Thunder has much higher exp points than any of us. The first heat I was the only one left of our team, the second heat they took me out immediately. It takes some (most) of the fun out of it when there's no chance at all to win or even take anyone out from the opposing team. I was 100 in defense and attack, but Miguel told me Rolling Thunder were all around 200 as they live at Zouk City. Ah well. I'm willing to try to get up to the end of exp points (300) to see if that makes it more fun (if both teams are maxed out then it would hinge on finesse). Otherwise it's not going to be much fun. I had a discussion with Jelly last week about this - what I think of as a major flaw in the game - but she pooh-poohed the thought.
I went to Novum and bought hair for Anchor. When I took off his brown hair and put on the base hair for the hairstyle it was revealed: Anchor is actually John Lennon.
