These players were notable for one reason or another, in the May Week
2000 Assassins' Guild game...
- The Lemming Award for the first death of the game: Matt Laycock!
- The J "Overkill" Doe prize for
Psychopathy: Bjoern Holzhauer!
Not really any contest for this one... Bjoern was mashing morning, noon and night...
- The Harland Quinn Golden Quill award for best kill reports:
- The Leek And Safe Prize for Most Interesting Weaponry:
Claire Bordenave, for an amazing array of licensed weapons
including a tomahawk / cosh that bore a striking resemblance to the evil penguin from
Wallace & Gromit, "The Force" (a mechanical hand for giving a Vulcan death-grip),
the amazing ferocious jingle-bells-hat Octopus, and J Doe as an aircraft carrier /
Armoured Personnel Carrier.
Honourable mention has to also go to David Hammond, who had
licensed a number of inventive weapons, starring a killer zombie traffic cone.
- The Most Amusing Fictitious Kill: Ed Nokes,
in a parody of Dave Hammond's earlier
legal innocent kill.
- The Most War-Torn Public Computing Facility: Harvey Court Computer Room.
kills occurred here,
all involving at least one of Ed Nokes, Bjoern Holzhauer and Matt Laycock...
- The Best Kill of a Fellow of Cambridge University in Ages: Matt Laycock!
(And isn't it great to hear of university staff who've got enough of a sense of humour
to actually even carry a water weapon at all, even in May Week?)...
- The Most Assassinated Cuddly Toy: "Bandit", the one-armed Sheila
teddy bear. Died no less than
- The Least Advisable Non-Player Kill: Matthew Wakeling.
Although I'm very grateful to Matthew for his assistance with the programming of the
Automatic Umpire system, I'm unconvinced of the likelihood of future marital harmony, if
this is how he treats his fiancee... ;)
- The Kill with the Best Moral: Claire Bordenave.
