It is a well known secret that the HLP BanHammer +3 has a crack on it (too many thick headed troublemakers). Presently there are no way to reforge it and the powers of the BanHammer keep draining. Sacred texts from ages old have vague refrences to "Ancients", but so far they have been unable to find the right Ancients with powers to repair it.. After racing around different galaxies Fury was "volunteered" to try the Ori. But even they were baffeled by the mystic powers of the BanHammer (they did try to steal it though, fortunatley Fury had his Starfury to escape with). Shivans ate the lunch of the brave HLP zealot who tried to sneak past them to find the Ancients. Being so old friend to the community, it was deemed to be a good idea to kill IceFire and send him to the cafeteria. But as expected, the Ancients didn't care. Ice did however meet Daniel and together they proceeded to whine to the Ancinets about them "not caring". Many of the HLP crusaders went beyond the galactic rim but few have returned, and fewer even met any of the Firstones.
As long as the HLP BanHammer is replaced or repaired, banning action continiues to be erratic and unpredictable.
There has been research in to aquiring following BanTools:
Shivan BanBeam of piercing - Pierces the target and bans the HLP troll behind it.
Liir BanBomb of Flickering - Equipped with flicker drive and has a chance of passing trought the target and hitting the HLP creep behind it.
BanShotgun of the Lord Valmet - Sturdy double barreled shotgun capable of banning an entire flock of HLP wussys at once.
Drow Jinxed BanDagger of Accident - Will cut an ear from the target and slip in to the hearth of the moderator, banning him instead.
There is also been efforts to find the legendary Ban weapon of VW. But the now abandoned Volition Watch katacombs are dangerous and much of the information concerning the Banning rituals of the mysterious people have been lost.(Yes. I just had a borign moment in school.)
