A very easy challenge this time: try to get as many balls and chains (ball and chains? Balls and chain???) as possible in up to 20 hours of playtime. You don't have to have them all equipped, of course. You're free to choose any race/guild combination you like for your party, but obviously it might be an advantage to have at least one character who can cast Charm of Opening.
Good luck! smile.gif

Edit: Before you start playing, reset your data files. For more details read: http://mordor.uni.cc/forum/index.php?showtopic=432
You can attach your character file (mdata4.mdr) to your reply in this thread.

no-one did this challenge !?!?! oh well... and yes the correct english term is balls- and-chain, as is sisters-in-law, etc. but I can't think of any more.

Ah, but there's one law that applies to multiple sisters, whereas each ball comes with its own chain.

I'd vote for Ball-and-Chains as the least awkward way of phrasing it, "correct" grammar be damned. naughty.gif

@Serin: Apparently no-one was interested in trying this challenge, and then I got ill. But if you'd like to have a bash at it, feel free to do so. As long as there hasn't been a single entry, the challenge is still open, I suppose.smile.gif

I think no one wants to try it because it's kinda a waste of time and it cost 2 mil to uncurse those things.

1) Challenge still continued?
2) > up to 20 hours of playtime
What does it mean?
Real time? Summary playtime of party members? Max/min playtime of party members? Average one?
3) How many characters allowed? From 1 to 4, or more?
(Usually, i prefer six - four in "assault party" and two "rescuers" :)

The spoiler button doesnt work, so you have to manually type in the html. You do it like so:

CODE
[spoiler] this is the spoiler [/spoiler]

Who are those two people in the right of the spolier bar? I've been wondering that for a while now.
