    Hoffs, Shal, get together with your peers in the guild and decide who you feel meets the following requirements:

    1) Is semi new to the shard, in the area of 2-4 months.

    2) Always lends a hand to guild mates and others.

    The final decision should be made by the guild masters....but please get input from the others that surround and help regulate and maintain the guilds.


    The member of HIL will receive an uncursed, doom, ornament of the magician. The NEW will get 3mil

  8. Update


    Speedy gave Shalimar the orny and the gold last night to pass on to the people we told him we nominated.

    Valos Ravar of CWS received the orny, he's always assisting someone and he meets the 2-4 month requirement, although he isn't a GIL member, he was the most deserving of this.

    Branwyn of Errol and Sara Dale of GIL received the 3 mil gold, cheques for 1.5 mil for each of them, they are always doing something to help someone out, they're not NEW anymore but still quite new to the shard, and they are the most deserving of this.

    Speedy also donated 2 mil gold to NEW guild for our kitty.

    Thanks much

    I haven't met Valos yet but Sara and Branwyn are truly deserving of some recognition for being such awesome people :hug:

    Definitely.

    Thanks to Speedy for the items, thanks to all those who assist NEW, and it's nice to see that help rewarded.

    Congrats and thanks Valos, Sara and Branwyn.

    Heya all

    This is Valos, nicks different because of another character name in Europa!

    I thank Speedy deeply for the donation, I was truely blindsighted by this and I feel most honored by the nomination. I havent been active on the boards since sadly I have limited computer time and I prefer to be ingame rather than reading. After this I will sertainly attend more to the boards too, well try anyway!

    See you all ingame!

    Hear hear, well done.
    This one is pretty sure, well, hopeful at best, that no thief would have stolen in actuality. Even we thieves are shard supportive for the most part, outside of our humor.
    It is good to see good people recognized.
     
  14. Speedy,
    I would like to thank you for your generosity. I was quite stunned by this "award". All I try to do is have fun, and help others, especially newcomers to have the same positive experience here as I have had.
    I played on Catskills since UO was a new game but got bored in the past year for the same reasons lots of vet players are. I came to Seige expecting to hate it and find it very frustrating. But it was quite the opposite. When my "wet behind the ears" Branwyn saw nobody around Brit to ask about NEW she strolled over to Luna. Upon entering the bank a red gent rode up and she prepared to die. Instead he offered her a cheque and said he would call Shalimar to come escort me to NEW.
    My enjoyment of playing UO has returned since being on Siege and that is because of the peole who play here. It seems to me that everyone who plays here, the good, the bad and the ugly, ultimately supports the community and its welfare.

    Dear Speedy,

    I would also like to thank you for your generosity. It was quite a surprise when I heard that Shalimar wanted to see me. I was in Doom at the time and was getting ready to leave when Bruin asked if I or Branwyn were on. Then there was more of a surprise when I found out what she wanted.
    We came here from Cats about a year ago and stayed. I had been here off and on since forever but it was more of way more off than on, come for an hour or so and leave again.
    I was also getting bored with Cats (still love it though) and when Branwyn mentioned she was going to try it I came along too. She mentioned the NEW guild and I havent looked back. It was great being with people over here and being able to chat and do things together.
    I offered tips on how to do things. If someone needed something I would try to help them.
    We moved on to Gil and I still am all over the place doing and helping. I dont gate so its running for me. I dont care what guild someone is in or not in if they need help I do my best.
    Again thank you all for nominating me. I just didnt realize how much I had done for everyone, some who I have seen over and over and some who I havent seen again. It makes me feel great and like when I got an award when I was volunteering for the Boy Scouts, Ill do more.
    Thank you again Speedy

    You're welcome to both of you. I'm leaving the shard so I feel it's my responsibility to make sure my buddies still have people to play against, and you two help to see that happens.

    Anywhere but here ^^

    Faction arties just did some bad things to this shard. On production where things are blessable they aren't so bad, but here where we get one item...meh

    It's just not fun for me. I keep clinging to the hop they will fix stuff, but it never happens, especially for SP. I miss the days I'd log on my smith, make a full GM suit, craft a weap, reg up, and go just have fun. Dying didn't mean I had to barter back for a mil in items, and I sure as hell didn't over power or become over powered due to a mill of artifacts at my disposal.

    Well said. I miss the days when most of the pvp guilds were red, non-factioned, and a bad night was losing 100-150k worth of gear (10-15 deaths).
    Death ment getting a gate back to your house, grabbing a pre-organized sack of pvp goods, and going right back out. We actually could play like that now IF we chose to but I doubt that will ever happen.

    OP quick strike/death strike templates have made it quite impossible to play in GM gear. As well as tamers, bolas, etc. I gave up making suggestions and posting in UHALL long ago. I'll just keep my accounts open.

    Wow, completely agree with these last few posts - I was just thinking today - I still enjoy pvp but I hate how everyone is afraid of dying now.

    Back in the day (Pre-Aos), I'd grab some studded armour, a spear, bandages, and a few potions and I could pvp with that. If I died, run to the bank, spend 2 minutes grab the stuff and die again.

    Post Aos - Same as above, but needed some jewelry to roll.

    Then they started releasing enchanted apples, enchanted bandages, orange petals, the more stuff you need to pvp, the more afraid you are to die therefore the less you fight. It all really started going downhill with cursed artifacts.

    Now with faction arties, you go into a 5 on 5 fight, people take a few shots and each other, one person dies after 5 minutes and everyone runs home scared. People are afraid to die because every time you do you have to buy back your gear at 500k or go farm daemons for hours. What fun is that?

    I want to have fun in this game, and being afraid to die or having to work 10 hours to earn enough gold for one death ISN'T FUN!
