Leading up to the battle

A week before the battle, Vynoran Champion Chumpy went by himself to Dark Citadel Island, to try and get casts to locate the finger. Using gems donated by Fort Mole, Blackhorse Bay, Whosville, and Kyara, and casting during hours of low population, he was able to narrow it down to the hill just east of Dark Citadel. In hopes of getting one last close-in cast, he logged into an alt to see if the coast was clear, but it was not - Seth, a champion of Libila, was in the area of the finger, and had a lot of tiles dug up. Clearly, Chumpy knew, he was no longer the only one after the Finger. The race was on...

Having used Wwiiol to ferry gems down to Chumpy earlier, Wwiiol logged in to try to take a shot at the Libilan champion. Seth also logged in as Sunn to fight and withdrew Seth to a safer location. Wwiiol and Sunn fought alone (watched by some not so innocent bystanders) atop the Finger hill, with Sunn coming out victorious. Both sides now knew, if they hadn't already, that time was short to get the Finger. That a battle lay brewing was evident to both sides, and the White Light assembled those willing to make the trek to Dark Citadel, for what was expected to be a very difficult mission...

Story

The leaders of the armies of the White Light, after finding out the Finger's final location, led their troops in towards the sullen fortress of Dark Citadel. The army soon arrived at the dig site and immediately began excavations. The warriors of Dark Citadel sallied forth one by one to fend off the White Light force. The White Lighters stopped digging and prepared to give battle. A raging melee developed, deaths on both sides and casualties everywhere. Some Black Lighters were courageous enough to show their dedication to Libila; they ran head on into the White Light forces to try and hinder their progress. They failed.

Unable to locate the finger, Chumpy was brought into the midst of the fray, and after hours of fighting and digging the Silver Finger of Fo was finally revealed, and the White Light forces disengaged from combat and headed home for a well deserved rest.
