One Rifter to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
My first Rifter is still in one piece, albeit patched up and bruised after some pretty epic swordplay and entertainment.
To date I have clocked up 12 kills to 0 losses in my first Rifter. Details can be found here >>>.
(edit - killboard expired)
My favourite kill has to be the Taranis kill, a heart pumping affair in which I fought bravely and with the spirit of the Bull. Murciélago is the name of my Rifter, the Taranis just did not have the character to fend off the power of Murciélago.
I would like to tell you more about the naming of my Rifter.
Murciélago was a Navarra fighting bull known for having survived 28 sword strokes in an October 5, 1879 fight against Rafael "El Lagartijo" Molina Sanchez, at the Coso de los califas bullring in Córdoba, Spain.
Murciélago fought with such passion and spirit that the crowd called for his life to be spared, an honor which the matador bestowed. The bull, which came from the farm of Joaquin del Val di Navarra, was later presented as a gift to Don Antonio Miura. Together with his brother, Don Eduardo Miura, they brought Murciélago into the Miura line by siring him with 70 cows. Bulls from the Miura ranch, located near Seville, Spain, are known for being large and ferocious.
I do hope that I can keep this run of form going with Murciélago, I hope for more kills and adventure over the coming weeks and months. I would also like to thank my good friend Romeo Blakstorm for showing me guidance on the way.
Thanking you reader.
