Backstory As a young boy, Richard was a circus performer who contracted leprosy, leaving him numb to pain. After being ostracized from his own people, Richard met Mary Lloyd, another circus performer, and the two of them became a pair of wandering outlaws, roaming Europe to steal food and medicine from the rich. Eventually, Mary met and fell in love with John Grayson of Haly's Circus. They got married and had a child named Dick, while Richard watched over her from afar, like Severus Snape (and just as creepy). One night when Haly's was performing in Gotham City, Richard overheard local mobster Tony Zucco threaten Haly's Circus. Rather than warn someone, Richard found himself pre-occupied with stealing the watch of one billionaire named Bruce Wayne. After John and Mary fell to their deaths, Dick was taken into the custody of Wayne while Richard swore revenge against Wayne.
Nightwing In the years that passed, Richard built himself a reputation as a mercenary using superhero branding. He attracted the attention of the Parliament of Owls, an international cabal of wealthy elite that plotted to create a sovereign nation built on the back of human trafficking. The Parliament had successfully blackmailed Dick Grayson into joining their ranks, and recruited Raptor to dispose of Lincoln March and keep an eye out on Grayson. Little did the Parliament know, however, that Raptor had his own plan. He gained Nightwing's trust and helped bring the Parliament's plans crashing down. Shortly after the Parliament's eradication, Raptor went after Bruce Wayne himself, kidnapping him in public by threatening to expose his identity. Before he could assassinate Bruce however, Dick intercepted him, and broke his legs before turning him over to Spyral custody. Spyral prison did not hold Raptor for very long, however, as he was released. This time, he targeted Dick's resident city of Bludhaven, which was ruled by casino boss and arms dealer Blockbuster. Wanting to purge the city of corruption, Raptor unleashed the Blockbuster serum on the citizens, turning them into mindless hulking monsters. With the help of the Runoffs, a cast of reformed costumed criminals, Nightwing successfully stopped the spread of the serum, and confronted Raptor alongside Blockbuster. In the three-way battle, Raptor was seemingly killed by Blockbuster, who was in turn neutralized by Nightwing.
Deathstroke While Deathstroke was imprisoned, Raptor laid claim to his high tech Ikon suit. Before the two mercenaries could kill each other, however, they were interrupted and recruited by Matthew Bland (aka Red Lion), an exiled genocidal dictator of an African nation. Bland tasked Deathstroke and Raptor with stealing a US carrier. During the mission, Deathstroke took back his Ikon suit, but turned a blind eye to Raptor, who was more interested in sabotaging Bland's chances at re-claiming his nation. Raptor and Deathstroke crossed paths again when the Secret Society of Super-Villains put Deathstroke on trial for not being villainous enough. Raptor also appeared at Deathstroke's funeral after his death at the hands of the Teen Titans. Raptor touched Deathstroke's corpse with his exposed hand, infecting the body with leprosy, and kick-starting Deathstroke's immune system into bringing him back to life. Yeah. Oh, and this all happened sometime after Raptor was supposedly killed by Blockbuster. Comics are weird like that.
Former WSOP Main Event winner’s trophy watch up for sale
It is no surprise that those who decide to make a career in the highly competitive world of poker are sometimes going bust. Even the most prolific players go through rough patches but those who owe their wealth to a lucky streak are much more likely to go bankrupt. Jerry Yang is one of the few World Series of Poker Main Event winners and when he emerged victorious in 2007, he took $8.25 million and the coveted Corum Admiral's Cup watch. Obviously, he could've purchased any watch with the prize awarded for outshining 6368 players, but this watch has a special significance. It is by far the most coveted jewelry that also has the ability to keep track of time that poker players can hope to wear. Back in the day, Jerry had no intention to sell this beautiful watch, because he had more money than he needed and supposedly more that he could spend. These proved to be overly optimistic assumptions, because his problems seem to be never ending, with Yang being targeted by the Internal Revenue Service in March 2013. He still has pending debts and was forced to sell many of his assets, with the Corum Admiral's Cup watch being the last on the list. There was no shortage of interested buyers and even though the auction started at the ridiculous amount of $50, the bids escalated to in excess of $4000. It is not too late to purchase this great watch if you have the resources to do it, but it is only fair to assume that the final price will surge past the five digit threshold. When interviewed about his plans for the immediate future and his feelings about being forced to auction the watch, Jerry claimed that he has other priorities. On the bright side, he is optimistic about what the future might bring and plans on returning to live tables when his financial problems are resolved. Unlike Jerry, who got lucky and won a lot of money in a short period of time, many World Series of poker participants are traveling a long and twisted path. Many preferred to start their careers over the Internet and grind the money needed to pay the buy-in, with only the most successful ones taking their chances in Las Vegas. Everest Poker has sent plenty of players to the WSOP, both directly as a result of winning satellites or incidentally, as they made enough money online to afford the buy-in. from via Casinoreviews
(May not be able to post a Monday Mornings post next week, going to be busy.) Good morning from Washington State. Yesterday, we encountered some real drama from bullies. I mean, I hear fifty of them are going to come and attack, and they have one guy supplying it all. For me, sitting around in a secret spot with the Bird Clan, this is top lel. So many threads, so much cringe. If this attack on CivCraft actually happens, they're going to be drunk. Slash them hard, guys, and don't trip on their bodies. And, by the way, it's “suburbs,” not “subrubs.” Onto serious matters, I've made some stone and charcoal, added brick structures to my house, and wondered about what to do in CivCraft. I think my clay collection is growing at a good rate, but I also hope there will be a factory someday for hardened clay and bricks and colored hardened clay. The subreddit had some drama with Caiden burning the flag for the 4th of July, but it seemed to be a normal week with constant griefings from the blood gang and other griefers. Also, I have recieved another threat of major griefing by someone else. That threat was sent the day before Ladder_Jake came by. I don't know if this other guy's threats were serious, but it's always important to have defenses in case shit happens. Guess what, that threat was sent by The_Samurai, but I didn't take screenshots like Lenin did. Wow, so usual.
Taargus for asking me on my opinion of certain matters. Eagles for advising me on imporving my house and for showing me his place. Dydomite (Reddit name) for displaying the history of that July 4 attack. R3KoN for being funny with that AMA and pretending to be the secret agent. Matthew_Cole. Fuck you, Ladder_Jake. At least you are full of shit posts. Bounty hunters and griefer fighters for defending against the flood of damage. Carson Diggers for making such a big city possible. CivCringe for bringing home the drama.
Anyway, for the next week, I'm going to be away in another state. I likely won't have internet. Eagles, Palms, I fixed all but one factory for public use. Should save you some time. Anyway, I hope to enjoy CivCraft this Monday before I have to leave. Good luck preparing for 50 jocks this week, too, I really wonder what July 17 holds. Then the credits will roll. Have a nice week guys. Finally, have a moment of silence for all the griefed players of CivCraft. Their suffering will ease as griefers are pearled.
