December 11, 2009/0/0/

This fetid bottom-feeder is an important part of the natural ecosystem, but can become malevolent if given the opportunity, displaying various resistances to apothecary attacks of late. If this agent is killed by metronidazone combined with cefotaxime, aztreonam OR ceftriaxone, then the pestilence player suffer 1 extra point of damage from this attack. Because of […]

Old warriors from years ago who are not as powerful as those of newer generations. Yet, they still have some fight left in them.

However, this is the gist in the author’s […]
