In what was to be the last attempt of the day, SilverBrin and Ar-Isildur finally make good on their vow to bag this mission before the end of Easter Break. The viewer can see that both SilverBrin and Ar-Isildur have played this map one too many times, as SilverBrin names his units after famous composers (Mozart, Bach, Wagner, Beethoven) and Ar-Isildur names his poachers after famous trumpet players (Maynard Ferguson, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Arturo Sandoval).

Set in these teams, the Flaming Trumpet Players (FTP) and the Immortal Composers (IC) battle to see who can kill the most deer. The Immortal Composers wind up with the a lead of two in the final score (note that these deer body counts do not include deer claimed in chain explosions):

  • Flaming Trumpet Players:39
  • Immortal Composers: 41

Perhaps the most interesting (and amusing) aspect of this film is the fact that the duo had never made it to the fourth wave of deer before this game. Watch as they get increasingly paranoid immediately after the third wave, especially before the fourth wave as they suffer through several false alarms while thinking they "triggered" the fourth wave. In the end, of course, the fourth wave is triggered.

This film was the result of several weeks of hard work and many failed attempts. Alas for SilverBrin's dog Emma, whom SilverBrin recently mistook for an exploding deer and ended up shooting with a blunderbuss. Needless to say, there was much rejoicing when this film was finally put into the WPLNC archives.
