The Epic Spank Thread

Postby bawog » Sat Sep 15, 2007 2:18 am

So after talking with a few people, I've decided to start a thread of what you can remember as the best/funniest/scariest spank you've been involved in. I just find them to be funny and/or frustrating (if yer leading)

I'll start off (I don't have a log sadly)

One time in BC was chantering as I usually do, I got this glass rod from said zone that happened to be room silence, and I thought it was prismatic spray. So he invoked the staff mid Bel fight and killed off a few people, was probally the hardest I laughed in a while.

Best spank I was ever involved with was the crypts spank where the rogue dragged in 3 extra spectres and the druid and cleric were the only two to live.

Best Sotana group EVAH!!!!! *laugh*

Yeah. Izans spank was a good one.

Not as good as not having mindblank in Spob that time, but good.

The person who invoked the glass staff shall remain nameless....cough.

I agree Nerox, I haven't laughed that hard in a long time while mudding.

There was a time very early in wipe when we were doing Scorps. The entire group had gotten beat down except me. I'd dragged every single corpse out and was pulling the last ones into the ress room where everybody was sitting nekkid when somebody very kindly searched me out when I ran for a post-CR potty break.

Scrops love nekkid adventurers... they eat them for lunch. Or dinner. Or a late night snack. I must have had a dinner bell in my back pocket because the king and his entire staff came over for chow.

The roots spank was so bad.. every time we got to the final room on our CR attempts, there was so much spam from all the EQ on the ground that I would lose my link.

I'll never forget that Roots spank in 96 or 97. It was Valentine's Day in 97, I believe. Trilca called me on the phone at around 8am or so and said I had to get on.

My worst spank had to be the first time I led CC. A sorc with us was wandering around and died. We had to CR and as we worked our way to the library by Q, it repopped. What a mess that was.

Another was when Jot Invasion was newer and the group got spanked totally at the big fight east of the silence room. It was one of those that at the end, we were using minor created junk just to get across the grid to get the original corpses before they rotted.

I was leading Gith one night when some nasty lag popped up, we couldn't stay connected for long enough to get a 2nd bash off, needless to say the Githyanki had fun. I was falling asleep by about 6am, seashell necklaces were poofing as corpses rotted, and Mplor popped on in the morning and graciously helped CR.

lol :) that reminds me of having to soulwalk to a Vigis corpse in the snake hometown. I think he entered the wrong portal or something, but was fun trying to loot and word a couple times, before getting killed by the guards :)

Wasn't Tia. It was BC before they fixed the door. Pril was playing as Agor and called the portal safe...portal went to Ghore. I got about 10 of my corpses through but was too low on moves to get them back out when the alarm bell started going off. I finally got all of them back thanks to the help of A LOT of people.

Best part of that trip though was thinking I had won the dagger and Pril making us re-bid so he could get his half point bid in there :) I don't recall who said it, but I'll never forget the words "That's TWICE Agor has fucked you tonight Vigis!" Good Times :)

Edit #2: Just remembered the BEST part of that trip. Somebody was dragging our corpses and ended up dragging them into a perm-dark !ground room. Kiryan had to RP to get them back.

And yeah Duna, I remember jumping that portal to snakeville :)

My favorite spank (aside from the obligatory Morispanks) was CC with Pril leading it. I think we went through 3 or 4 complete spanks before Touk took pity on us and helped us take out Q. By that point, every person in the group had cleared out every alt and storage cache of spare gear. I think by the time we won, I was making do with a minor created shield and dagger so I could hit bashes.

My other favorite one was also CC. I was wielding the MD evil only sword and pitched it while fighting Q. Q of course picked it up, wielded it, and proceeded to proc wither, blind, etc. on me :)

Edit #1: Some of my favorite spanks ever: http://www.torilmud.org/phpBB2/viewtopi ... highlight=

I worded with everyone's gear and was overloaded and over the memory cap thing waiting for someone to get into the WD priest guild. Fun times.

I loved any spank where we had to break into CR gear and ghetto our way back to our gear. With no risk of equipment loss, spanks are just an annoyance because its just more time you have to exp.

Amen, all my favorite spanks were from back in the early days of wipe. Back when my skills weren't full, when I still stood a chance of getting caught, when getting it and getting out was actually my skill instead of what the game considered to be skill, when "breaking in" meant breaking a sweat and being nervous in your seat about the potential outcome.

I remember being in a group that had their collective asses handed to them in SG. Man, that was fun. Scouring Clouds for idiots who lost their minds in a bad fight and ended up playing pinball all over Wonderland, annoying, but a total blast. Having the wrong mobs walk into Astral fights, and getting your ass kicked by your own tank, and getting so cheesed about the damage he's putting out you want the cleric to stop healing him mid-battle, and every tank that rescues ends up blinded by his ebony. Sending tells to people doing exp in IC to let them know we were getting ready to do werewolves, because we KNEW those bastages were capable of bending us over backwards and making us their bitches.

What made it fun was knowing we stood very good chances of getting smacked down in the hardest, most humiliating fashion possible, but we were there anyway.

I'm not sure if I was in this particular group, but it sounds FREAKISHLY similar to another crypts spank I was in.. at least since torilmud. There are a few others before (soj2) that were pretty spankalicious.

My worst CR memory is Dragonia.

Lost two sets of EQ. back when amethyst rings were 60 hps !bits. Most guildies lost their eq, too. I stopped playing for about a year, too.

I think there were at least two, maybe three sets of CR gear from at least two groups on the ground.

One of my favorite spanks was a crypts run where we were in the room just south of the sarcophagus or whatnot, when all of a sudden a player who shall not be named was ported into our room on accident by Miax. A few flees later, we had a bunch of deathknights and spectres, and a group full of pcorpses. I remember losing level due to a failed ress, and cussing Miax out via petition. He ended up giving me a bunch of exp (more than was warranted) probably just to shut me up.

Fun times.

Gormal was like ok! FIC! and like charged in, I followed him, like the dragons hit him maybe twice and he like crumpled to the ground dead, I tried to flee but it just wasn't happening, that was a really funny/frustrating night.

Targsk's Roots spank. The one where the goodies even came in to help but the roots spawned an insane amount of spirits and all the spam just kept making people DC and spank further.

Okay, I have to nominate a few of my own memorable spanks:

1. 58 deaths in CC that ultimately involved 3 full groups (something was buggy with the dragons.) I went in as CR group 1 and we got toasted. I think Omrec came with a 3rd CR group, and I know Ashiwi died like 8 times and volubly reminded me about it after. I can't even remember who the original group's leader was. This is my all-time highest record for spank in a normal zone.
2. Imix invading Brass.
3. Off-planar spank: "I just want to take a closer look at this dragon." (Said by MT . . . who wandered off with other tanks attached.)
4. Levitating Jabber. It would have been funnier if it hadn't happened at 3 AM.
5. 10.5 hour crypts run, with 4 spanks, 3 crashes, and 1 emergency reboot.
6. There was a rumored "spank in pods" that dogged me for ages. I never actually spanked there; we just killed a global load dragon there and some people died, and it got inflated into "Mori managed to spank in pods!" :D

I remember that! I wasn't on that run because at the time I was burned out on crypts following my really bad run.

I don't remember if this is the same one, but I was in one where I and another caster were the last to live, and we were down to cure serious and potions at the end, and just tossing out nukes. The ranger even cast all his cure criticals while tanking before he died :P


Hmm, does anyone remember the MD spank where all the summoned demons kept summoning more demons?

I should also put in a word for any and all multi-lich fights (i.e. Paracs after procs went in.)

I don't remember which incarnation of Toril/Sojourn this was, but we had a great run of spanks when Jurdex led us through brass. We were all passing out at keys while we tried to come up with enough prot fire gear to CR from repeated spanks.

Another memorable one was when we kept dying in Hulburg, Eil had one of my favorite globals ever. It ended with Lili self-deleting and Jhorr trying to get us safely out. Good times.

Hmmm theres loads of good ones but I having trouble remembering many. So many great spanks.

Crypts spanks always make me laugh, so many classic spanks in that zone.

Sok's IC2 run right after remo changes.

Many a spank on the archivist and the chaos that follows.

One of the worst for me was the 18 hour evil SPOB run. I feel asleep on my keyboard by the 15 hour mark and woke up just in time to do the last two fights.

One of my favorites though, even though its not quite a true spank, was the day Artikerus proc'd a handful of gith knights in DK and got loads of people caught in the cross fire.

There was the infamous Roots spank back in '97, of course. I think I may have helped in the tail end, and of course the ensuing chaos where loads of EQ mysteriously went missing..

But there were a few Crypts spanks that were just awful. One in particular stands out. It was an instance where I had to take my Jot (if I recall) group down and help out, and we even ended up spanking due to where the mobs were and the pop. We were the third full group to go in, I believe. It ended up being I think 40+ unique corpses in there, let alone the duplicates.

The time Ruraz was sitting for BC and decided he wanted to go in for the next round on Bel. Total spank and no sitter :)

Lessee.....*deep breath*

1. SPoB: Raxar's - 15 hours. Qazap's - 13 hours. Feezuu's - 13 hours. Larim's - 11 hours (aborted).

2. Roots. My spank courtesy of the fixed bug with tree summoning all roots in zone becoming unfixed. The epic spank back in '97 where I had everyone's gear. Kris had to use an imm bag to hold half of it, the other half almost completely filled my portable hole. Kris had to do a backup from the day prior to the spank due to dishonest people.

3. Crypts. Too many to count. I can think of at least a dozen where the zone took 2-4 hours.

4. Nerox's Izan run.

5. The CC spank where half the country dropped off the web due to some major ISP outage. The imms wouldn't cut us a break, and everyone came back almost 24 hours later (NOTE: This was back when crashes happened frequently. This was a miracle in and of itself!) to a HUGE spammy screen of eq (mostly all in 1 room) on the ground. Kris again ended up having to do a backup from the day prior. Twinks.

6. 18-24 hour Tia runs due to retarded clerics not knowing how to use fheal pendants properly. Way too many to count.

7. More to be added when I can actually remember some of the more obscure ones...:P

Wasn't a spank, had a few deaths, but a Crypts run led by Sotana where my ISP dropped in the middle of us going and I (as Eya) got left in the room with the sarcophagi. After spending an hour on the phone with my provider they finally got it fixed and I spent some time on skype while the group broke BACK in to get me out.

And to this day I love everyone who immediately jumped back into the group of their own accord to rescue me, as well as the people who jumped in to fill in the blanks.

Oh man, I forgot to mention Zenriel's war against Kossuth back in the day. He sigged that for the longest time . . . "The lord of the iron wastes holds up his hammer, shouting 'weak fools!'" It began as me leading Jot with a skeletal group and escalated into an epic struggle to recruit more for Kost and other rareloads, marred by mud lag that killed Ashiwi at least half a dozen times. I voluntarily turned the group over to him since at that point I hadn't led Kost before. The whole thing took ~11 hours due to people refusing to help since lag would get them killed.

For some reason the SPOB spanks I was in weren't as memorable, but I think I was there for Larim's aborted run. If memory serves we had come to the conclusion that a large number of us just had to leave by that point.

That's not true. :P

I've only had 3 real bad spanks that I can recall. One being the infamous pit (otyugh had friggin dragonkin procs) in TTF.

If you want guaranteed spank, you consent Qazap or Moritheil. *duck*

I remember that one. We'd been up there for hours and hadn't taken out a single one, and I finally got so ticked off at the mobs that I threw up my hands and went in and suicide-assassinated one. That was actually one of the hallmark moments that totally addicted me to roguing.

It was also one of the hallmark moments that taught me that my place in the mud was in the corpse pile.

Oh common now. Take it easy on Qazap. He only had a few bad ones as he was getting the hang of it. I lead some pretty bad spanks in nearly every zone available in my day, but that's how you learn to do it. In defense of evil leaders past, I should add that working with evils to lead zones is much more difficult, and always has been. Still had a very good time doing it. Well... 90% of the time.

We have to go easy on people that are willing to lead. It is becoming more and more rare now that anyone wants to even try it. Mostly in part to harsh critisisms from people that are far to lazy to even contemplate it themselves. I'm not applying that last sentance to you, Raiwen. There are a very large number of people that do it, though.

And yeah, he was getting the hang of it, but we still have to give each other a hard time when we have crappy leads, even if the spanks weren't our fault. As a leader, you always get stuck with the blame in some form.

I'm just bustin' his balls. He was an ex-guildie back in the OD days, same way we busted on Feezuu for his SPoB lead.

Back in OD we had a special forum on our BBS where we roasted Targsk (especially after his TTF lead)--he was the only one not given access to the forum. It was great fun. :twisted:

I'd love to learn to start leading zones personally. I'm not the greatest zoner in the world, working on that, and when I get decent, I want to start leading some. However, seeing some of the bs people dish out, makes me worried about the crap I'd have to deal with. Especially trying to lead a zone fairly new to me, with a group full of people who all know it well enough to lead it. That'd be a damn nightmare.

Everyone's got a learning curve. Let em get past it!

A few flees later, we had a bunch of deathknights and spectres, and a group full of pcorpses. I remember losing level due to a failed ress, and cussing Miax out via petition. He ended up giving me a bunch of exp (more than was warranted) probably just to shut me up.

Fun times.


Is this the same spank that I think it is?? If this is the same spank that I think it is, then this is the same spank where I say 'you rock for keeping my name out!' and where I so shamelessly plead the 5th! Of course only if this is the same spank that I think it is! I think! it...is! same spank is! this!

I thought that spank would have been forgotten by now--if it is the same spank that I think it is. And if it is the same spank that I think it is, then I'm sooooo terribly sorry, if it is the same spank that I think it is!


:/ *hides face in her hands* I did not know any of that happend til I logged on the next day and got flooded with tells from chest heaving, nostril flaring, pissed off players! Well, a bit exageration there but still annoyed with me for that night's event. And who could blame them? I'd be annoyed, too!.....that's if that is the same spank that I think it is! ;)

Haha, merciless criticism is also a tradition!

To some extent, the learning curve for leading incorporates the learning curve for ignoring verbal abuse. It also incorporates learning curves for your own class and other key classes. If you have bad ideas about what classes do, or about when and how people die, you will be disabused of them after a few spanks.

Also, leading blind when the group knows the zone isn't so terrible. It can be embarrassing at first, but just explain that you haven't led the zone before. They'll either demand that someone else lead - and you can learn it - or they'll say they don't care.
