The balrog has been slain!
At approximately 11:00 PM (Eastern time) today, the Balrog was downed for the first time on Imladris! What started out as an open raid a few weeks a while ago became a soon close-knit group of adventurers, seeking glory, fame
and a really, really big sword. We have to compensate.
But thank you very much to everyone who made this possible! While not everyone who helped got the title, your efforts have not been for naught-- Thaurlach has been slain.
Thank you to:
Essence (My Raid co-leader, and great healer and burg!)
Those were the people from the original group that were able to make it all the way!
These three helped us down the Balrog himself! While they weren't there on initial runs, they did come for the full run on the second run through, and proved their worth.
And of course, we cannot forget to specially thank:
While unable to have finished the run, they did help the group come together as a whole, and did spend the time to help us get there.
Again, a big and hearty thank you to EVERYONE who came out to my raid, and made it a success. Onwards, to Thorog in Helegrod, and further adventures!
Your Friendly, Neighbourhood Trololo-Lore-Master,
Vanquisher of Thaurlach. 8D
