A Slice of Bat History.

Pre-June 1992, Batmud had no races, had 19 mortal levels, and a 
very simple system for armours and such.  Following are some 
things I lifted from transcripts of around Feb-March of 1992.  
Enjoy.

The following is a list of Fighter Guild titles(this was when 
titles were fixed and meant something.  They were a matter of 
pride and identity, not just a whim of the player.


20   ="The Apprentice Wizard";      Fem: same (immortal)
19   ="The Captain of Fighters";    Fem: same
18   ="The Swordmaster";             
17   ="The Knight of the Guild";
16   ="the Apprentice Knight";
15   ="The Master Duelist";
14   ="The Duelist";
13   ="The Apprentice Duelist";
12   ="The Master Champion";
11   ="The Champion of Fighters";
10   ="The Warrior";                           
 9   ="The Great Barbarian";         F : The Great Barbarianess
 8   ="The Barbarian";               F : The Barbarianess
 7   ="The Master Fighter";          F : The Master Fightress
 6   ="The Experienced Fighter";     F : The Experienced Fightress
 5   ="The Fighter";                 F : The Fightress
 4   ="The Novice Fighter";          F : The Novice Fightress
 3   ="The Armorbearer";
 2   ="The Novice Armorbearer";
 1   ="The utter novice";

Here is a "look at yari" and a "score" from May 1992, just before 
I left for the summer, before the first huge conversion, when 
races were introduced.  At this time, 1 million exp was what was 
required to wiz, and I was top player.  The next player on the 
list was Taylor, who had a little under 2.5 million exp.

The last part of the book is a transcript of my fight with Tiamat.  
Tia was a bitch, and as U can see during this fight, we were very 
lucky to have even survived, let alone win.  Also, notice how 
lagged I was...this was an interesting fight ;)  Warning, this is 
a very long transcript. Note the who list, at the time, we thought 
we were awesome to have so many players on at the same time...  
Also, notice, _no channels_...bat was much quieter ;)
Hmm, upon review, I had my drinking commands set to like 4,5,and 
6.  Anyway, if you see a lot of numbers entered for no apparent 
reason, it was to drink and such.

So, you got this far.  Amazing.  Well, for sticking, I'll include a little
bonus explanation of things that happened.

Apocalipsis bit it in there, and got collected by satan...For you youngsters,
that meant poof, no comin back, yer done, stick a fork in ya.  Kinda
sucked...but ah well, he got lotsa power while he was alive for taking the
deal.  Hmm, surprisingly, many of the people on the who list are still here so
many years later.  Somewhat frightening.

Hmm, anyway, there you go, in all its glory, my lagged, confusing fight with
Tiamat...

Yari Shidosha, the Captain of Fighters (Noble Friend)
