    Tim!!!

    I just came back recently too! I couldn't remember my ICQ password... new icq is 595805323.

    Can't remember which char name you would remember the best but I think it should be Lyra Darkstar... Maybe Kalai Terelyn...

    How are you doing?

    Let me know if you need anything...

    *hugs tight*

    Hey stranger!!!!

    I haven't read this message board for AGES, don't know why I popped in today....however, I saw your message and just had to reply.

    I haven't played UO for a while now. I went back briefly (convinced Podolak to come back then left again....I'm a BAD friend!), it just doesn't hold the same interest for me anymore. The great RP is long gone, and the now RP groups are just different.

    Shoot me an ICQ some time 82866172. I get on there occasionally, not very often, but I might more often if I know someone is looking for me.

    And just FYI....Leela was never the GM of the GV, Dramora was! Dram was always the troublemaker!

    Dram is correct. Most of the great RP is gone. A lot of RP tends to revolve around current UO plotlines. The communities that are there seem to exist mostly alone.

    We are a bit fragmented with no real foe to fight, so the good guilds tend to just fight one another.

    Welcome back my friend! You may recognize the name SeDacia. I was in KaS for a short time. I remember some of the names you list but not seen any of them. I have been back in the game for 2+ years after taking about a 2 yr break, STILL learning new stuff. If you need anything my ICQ is the same as before. And if your interested in a guild "GRI" can be found in Haven. They are an ally leader of an alliance that is 35 guilds strong. I am in one of those 35. We are always doing somthing and a guild is great to be a part of when theres so much for a returning vet to learn! Wish I had found them when I returned. Welcome back!

    You know Elric, for a long time I had the KAS recruitment stone. I kept it in a box inside my house in case anyone ever returned. Unfortunately, during a patch a lot of my stuff went poof. That stone, and the one from my wife's old guild were among the stuff lost.
    Send me a tell a message if you are on ICQ. Sometimes I do not seem to be online, but I tend to hide a lot. *grins*

    Do you recall Beleg? He was also Green Arrow and Mika'el from KOY. He still plays and has a village next to Aegis.

    We could all make a foe... and have a character in the evil guild... that way the foe would be everyone and no one... avoiding drama and making people accountable for their actions...

    I have a demon ready... a fallen tormtar that is currently possessed.
    I'm not much of a rper but I can make people mad... honest I can.

    Working on that bit of RP as we speak. Though your new foe (yours truly) may not be too powerful at first we'll build up and make it a challenge!

    There are many, one member guilds that once were great rping guilds... it is a sad thing to see, such entropy.

    Yeah I am a land lubber. RP wise Lebrun is just Lebrun. Or "Cookie Man" to some. I should make a mystic for the Stone Form and act out a half human/half elemental something-or-other character.

    Seems lately accountability is a one-way street in the RP community as a whole,especially when a few that have the equvalent of this [​IMG] any discussion or in my case,desention,is an up-hill battle all the way.

    Its good to see you back sundown, I hope you enjoy yourself
    back in the new lands.

    I was in Ancient order of Syr with Gothamy and Kaara and I use to
    hear from them from time to time but not anymore. They moved
    to NC from NY and our contact became less and less.

    I miss those people on that list so much we had so much fun back then.
    Izzy and Raven taught me so much about rp and about defending myself.
    Plus they were just fun to be around.
    Raven was one of the best story teller on the boards I thought.

    If you need anything just let me know. My rl keeps me from playing
    as much as I like but i do check the boards regularly.

    Hey Elric and everyone else who remembers The Knights of Arcane Steel (KaS),
    For some reason I decided to check and see who may still be hanging around UO these days.
    Izzy the fool/Corin Aesir
    Zathos
    Dravyne
    Laz
    Raven was in WoW for a while but we've kinda lost touch.
    We are all currently playing WoW; Blackwater Seawolves on the Argent Dawn server. There are a few others from one of the Elf guilds with us also. A few of us miss the good old days of being evil and causing mass destruction and death trying to find our swords. Role playing is pretty much nothing like it used to be and that is missed also. I tried to come back last yearish but everything was soo different just didn't like the changes. Unfortunately KaS didn't end well for most of us and it still pains some of us to think about it, KaS was a family that worked well together and faught hardx to be the best evil guild around. Being the Gm when the guild actually had it's final days was rough and i still feel like i let people down. This is the unposted final story of KaS that should have been posted to all. It is rough and still has some things that would have been worked out between guilds.

    The battle raged on for days, both sides had taken many casualties, but the battle was winding down. The Knights of Arcane Steel had been eventually beaten back to their stronghold. With all their strength, the Steel finally succumbed to the over whelming numbers of Fae, Elves, Knights of Yew, Syr and Guardians of Virtue. This would be the last war the Steel would fight. Their rein of terror would end this day.
    The Knights of Arcane Steel rallied around Zathos and made their final stand in the hall of acceptance. Zathos looked and waited for the invaders to breach the castles powerful defenses. The Knights stood their ground as the deafening boom echoed the halls, each Knight a statue of their training allowing the blood to flow from their busted ear drums rather than take their eyes off the last direction the invaders could come. Finally the invaders made it inside and walked up the stairs to the Hall. The Knights stood ready as the first invaders approached.
    Silvara (or one of the other GM's of the attacking guilds) spoke offering the remaining Knights a life of servitude. Zathos approached and spoke; he allowed his notched arrow to loosen.
    “We the Knights of Arcane Steel surrender.” The words echoed through the hushed mass of warriors. The Knights approached his position and lowered their weapons slightly.
    Then an evil laugh began to come from Zathos, the plan he thought of to allow his warriors to get closer had worked. Raising his head to look upon the invaders his eyes glowed yellow and his face twisted into a snarl and a growl reverberated from his throat.
    “WE SURRENDER ONLY TO DEATH!” Zathos shouted dropping his bow, smoothly pulling his kryss and charging. The Knights took his sign and charged to their fates.
    The battle was hard fought and took days, but at last the Knights fell. The halls of the castle were filled with the metallic smell of blood and an eerie silence fell over the castle. It was time to finish what they had come to do. Reaching the engraved stone that contained the names of all the Knights, the stone that bound them body and soul. Someone (name to be chosen later) raised the sword known as shield breaker and smashed the engraving stone into three pieces (the number of guilds may be more and therefore so will the pieces). Each leader took a piece and quietly left the castle to the ghosts of the Knights of Arcane Steel.

    Hope you guys enjoy the last story. Also hope you guys are having fun and trying to keep RP alive. The old crew and RP is missed.

    Noooooooooooo!

    Sorry, I just don't accept that the KaS all died. Never going to happen!

    The Swords of Power story line was clearly one of the very best stories I ever had the honor to be part of. And just to let everyone know....I still have one of the original swords of power, and the book that accompanied, it in my bank box someplace.

    Zathos, does the Seawolves have a website?

    I'm with Dram. KaS were fractured, backstabbing, hoodlums when... err... whozadunit was in charge. There's not much chance that Dark was standing there in a final battle beside KaS, he'd be slinking off somewhere else instead of confronting an obviously stronger foe in a fight he couldn't win.

    Oh... yeah, HAI!

    As for getting RP going, just let a bad guy have some free reign. Don't pre-plan and fire it up. Dark got chased by half the server because no one (not even me) had a clue what was going on or where the story would go next.

    As for me, old school player. Former KaS and AKB. The fella most tend to recall is Darkmane.

    And no, I'm not in UO. Dunno why, a whim took me to check these forums today.

  47. Zathos

    Zathos Guest

    If everyone reads the story carefully the only one named is Zathos. There is always room for a come back. Although there are still several swords in game dram does have one. KaS will always live on in the hearts of those we tormented and poisoned and those who experienced our great treasure hunting adventures, oh and the fishing net craziness. I still say UO is the best game that allows for open ended RP and endless possibilities.
    Good luck in getting the RP going again.
    I may still have all those notes from when we tried to revamp RP Dram

    A fine story indeed. I recall the swords of power plot when it was gong on. Some of the best RP I have ever seen or taken part of come from those time. And yes, the Arcane Steele will always live on for those of us who remember another time in the RP history of UO.

    Evil is the path to ultimate power...And it is also the funnest way to go about ones business.
