    Hello fellow Britannians,

    As announced at the end of the past week, the HLP guild will be running a new trade caravan.
    This is 2009 first trade caravan! So don't miss it!
    This time we will be on the road to Britain from Trinsic.

    I hope to see you there!

    Here is the planned route :

    Everyone is welcome to join us and help us defend our prized possessions in the dangerous trip.
    The caravan will depart on wednesday, enlist yourself!

    We count on you!

    Paidric of New Haven.

    --------------------------------

    This event is intended for all players who want to experience some PvP in a fun and different way. We encourage every player to join us.
    Bring your blessed armor and weapons if you fear the insurance cost! Or just buy some GM made armor/weapons.

    You can find all details about the concept of the event here :
    Trade Caravan Concept Page

    Schedule and organisation
    • The Caravan will depart on Wednesday 7 of January at 7:30PM UK Time (20:30PM CET - 2:30PM EST).
    • The meeting point is the Trinsic West gate (inside town).
    • Gates will be provided from Luna Hall from 7:20PM until 7:50PM (the caravan will be on the road already).
    • Nine people will be carrying items for the Caravan, those will be engraved verite Long Swords carried inside the main backpack of the caravanees.
    • The goal of the guards is to reach our destination with as much of those items as possible.
    • The Caravan will be led by N'athuk of [HLP] (though we expect him to die quite a few times being in front). There will be other caravan leaders to help keep some structure.


    Remarks
    • Please try to follow the leaders instructions as to when to advance/stop so we can keep some structure.
    • Please stay grouped and follow your closest leader (we are in bright orange). This is in your interest aswell, it's harder for bandits to kill and loot you inside a larger group.
    • We encourage everyone to show some fairplay and avoid ress-killing, looting, griefing, etc. The goal of this event is to bring more people to friendly PvP. If you like action, promote the event rather than ruin it!

    And remember, we need to show the reds we don't fear them! :gee:

    We hope to see many of you.

    Paidric

    Paidric,


    A small request, if I may:


    I realise that it's too late to change this caravan, but could you please arrange some in the future on a Friday or Saturday evening - to accommodate those of us who have to work late during the week.



    Thanks in advance.

    Well, most guilds have their events in the weekend since the week not all players can attend or people are just playing that other game... "real life" or something, so my event is most a filler for the week. We can try the 10th trade caravan on a weekend though and see how it goes!

    I changed from friday to wednesday because I can't attend the event on friday... which would kinda make it a problem :D

    We'll see who can attend, thanks to those who come, sorry to those who can't!

    As I said, I need to put events on evenings I'm sure I can attend them, which becomes pretty rare lately.

    About the time of the event, I'm pretty sure nobody will be there before 8PM UK time, which is why I say 7:30 :)
    Plus we often have a hard start when trying to leave Trinsic so the latecomers might find us still there :)


    Escaflowne, I see you have trainings on wednesday, the Caravan is a good training no? :D

    Yes the Caravan is good training don't get me wrong :), but some people do not like going to fel and i do not want to ruin what was meant to be training for them. And 7:30pm is a little early for some Vesparians. Will see what happens.

    Thanks to everyone for coming to the Caravan!

    It was very fun and I hope to see you all on the number 10!

    This time I tried recording the event. It made me lag a lot but I hope it will allow me to show you some good clips!

    Hello!
    This was my first caravan and was nice to do somthing a little diffrent.
    I even managed to get a sword :p which i thought was a little bit easy to get but i suppose everyone else was fighting and didnt take much notice of me, heh.
    I did loot a cursed AoF and a ToK arti (tessen) of a guy i killed (Ace Ventura)which i would like to return, so if anyone knows of him plz PM me and i would love to give them bck.
    I only looted them to keep them safe.......honest, heh

    @ Myphsar

    I'm glad you enjoyed it!
    I hope it will encourage others to experience it :)



    So, I checked the recording I made. The raw movie is 2,3Gb. I'll see how it does when processed into a flv, but I guess it should remain around 350Mb. So no chance I post the whole thing.
    But I've watched it and there are some nice parts in it since I was somewhat in the middle of the action.

    Was a lot of fun - well, chaotic fun.

    Problem really was I had no idea who was on our team and who was on the attacking team which meant one of my deaths was caused by me standing with the attackers until that moment when we all realised we were enemies and I got moshed!

    I would suggest all goodies wear white/grey clothing [those grey robes seem cheap!] so we can attack anything NOT wearing our team colours.

    Also how the heck can you target something in UO2d? Do I really have to target them wiht the cursor? Cant I find a way to tab to the target or something? I am sure there used to be an easier way to find the target.

    All in all damn good fun event. Thanks to the organisers! ANd the pks!

    Hi, this was good fun i missed the start then was killed straight away so ran to get some cheap lrc to res people and when returning had a few nice chats with some red people, loved the banter. Some red did however kill and loot me while i was speaking with some of the other reds which detracted slightly from the experence, overall though totally good fun, me own fault really for braking the cardinal rule when going to fel...dont take anything you dont wish to lose:hahaha:

    Thanks Paidric for hosting the 9th Caravan!

    I had a lot of fun. :D

    If it weren´t for the res-killing and dry looting made by the [Pwn.] guild it would´ve been flawless. But then again, I´m not sure if they knew about the caravan or they just saw a bunch of people and wanted to join in on the action so no biggie...

    Was my first time with a faction guy so that was interesting. The statloss didn´t bother me although I fizzled quite a bit when trying to heal with my bandages. :p
    But the fact that so many were orange to me made it difficult to see who were red and who were blue so will prolly take a non-faction guy for the next adventure to make it easier on me. :)

    Here´s a grey pic for you all to enjoy:

    See you guys on the next one! :)

    My apologies for not making it - real life got in the way again :( I'll try for the next one, and, hopefully, get there.

    Tonight... hopefully... I'll post pictures and videos of the events.
    There aren't tons of picture because recording the event made me lag a lot, but there are some anyway :)

    I've been too busy working since the caravan to post anything yet, but stay tuned :)
