    I got meself a 24 hour ban this week for having bears in my house, i posted it all up on my shard forum.
    But as i did it because i read a post here about Disco,

    Poo thought it be a good idea to share it here incase you too are thinking about holding pens to practise your barding skills.

    Heres the link please reply here and not on the shard because i just wanna let that post die.

    thanks for sharing your story with us bro.

    its a good reminder to all of us that there actually ARE some GMs in game still.
    and that they arnt allways the fluffly nice ones.

    its also interesting to see how different GMs deal with different sittuations differentlly.

    i know a few people who had the same thing happen and the GM just pulled them into jail and told them to smarten up.

    thanks again for sharing with us.

    My sense is that this would not get you banned, wee papa smurf, unless the GM happens to be in a really bad mood. It is normal game mechanics - not player-made stalls - that are preventing the creatures from reaching you. You should be fine.

    ive died many times on those ledges.

    so "I" would say no.

    the thing is the mob has to be able to hit ya, and the spellcasters can, and do.

    but who knows.
    you could argue that the avengers and knights cant get to ya.

    it would be GM dependant.
    and every one of them would probablly answer it differentlly.

    I don't think it should be bannable. I reached 120 Archery working the ophidians from a ledge.

    Its just smart positioning, not exploiting anything at all.

    You cannot trap animals or monsters in your house. Even if you are using them to train. I saw 1 guy taming all the cu's and bringing them to his house and releasing them in pens. He had like 12 there. I know a gm removed them. i don't know if the player got in trouble though.

    Its been ages since I did any barding, but I had similar problems with pens and GM's while tons of ppl banged out skills on Golems.

    What I did was I made a uo/uoa macro to target the next mobile,discord and attack. Used it at Champ spawns.
