Runescape: You Can have 2 Baby Jads!
2 Baby Jads!
TzRek-Jad. Baby Jad. By now, if you've read nearly ANY of my posts since the original announcement of baby Jad, you know I'm sort of attached to him. Strike that... better description... I'm sort of obsessed with him. Long story, been told multiple times, but the short of it is, I really have an odd obsession about TzRek-Jad.
That said, went through some crazy effort, wound up getting him about 3 weeks after his release.
Okay, so all's cool, I'm pleased as punch with him, and life is good. But, I've had the intent of someday going back to Soul Wars, and getting 100 more Zeal.. for a Baby Jad in the house menagerie. Yes, I know that's a bit crazy. Like I said...
Up until Thursday, I had no intention of pursuing it any time soon. I really hated Soul Wars. But this week was Jagex's vaunted Bot-Nuking Extravaganza. Aside from dealing the bots a crippling blow, they released several bonus events in celebration. One of those events... triple experience for a full day in Soul Wars.
Knowing this in advance, I figured to do what I could Thursday evening. However much it turned into would be that much closer to Jad number 2. About 9:30 in the evening my time, after the daily update, Monique and I both sat down to score some Zeal. Triple points? Usually you get 1 point for losing, 2 for a draw, and 3 to win. With the bonus, it's 3 points to lose, 6 for a draw, and 9 to win. This adds up amazingly fast.
As much as I really hate playing Soul Wars, I got wrapped up in the intensity, and watching those points add up. Friday was already booked solid, so I knew this was my only chance to take advantage of the triple Zeal points. At some time early in the morning hours, I decided I was still wired, and had amazingly garnered 70 points already... so pushed until it was done. By 6:00 this morning, I had Baby Jad number 2!!
That gives about an hour and a half to sleep before work. But I don't regret it. Drank some extra coffee, plowed through work, I can sleep some other time.
Now Jad Junior's in the house. And in the bank. One for the menagerie, and one to hang out with me while I play. I know. Strange goal, insane effort, but it meant something to me, and I'm very very satisfied to have 2 baby TzRek-Jads. I've done some Google and Youtube searches, and as far as I can tell, I'm the only one so far to have 2 of them.
Who knew? Jad's a Dad... and it's twins!
