"A safe haven for thievs" Good idea??

    Touzoko from the forum helped me out big time last night, he was kind enough to give me gold, a plethora of high end fencer/poisoner weps, 1k each reg, a keg of each potion numerous barbed leather AR sets burglars bandana and darts/shirukens and lots of other items too....

    The message here is he helped me because i am a thief... well training to be one at least. I would like to do the same, I aim to place a house tonight and anyone who PM's me (providing they are a Thief on Siege) will be added as a friend to the house, i am going to try place it where you are likely to find a mark or if folk want to dump runes around to lure people in they have somewhere to strike from, i will aim to keep modest supplies there bandies and pots and the like and weps and stuff on a vendor with as minimal cost as possible so folk can restock and what not.

    so.... my next question... where would be a decent place to put the house?

    and also if anyone has any surplus items that would be useful to new players would you be willing to dump them in a chest to make "new thief" bags? basic ar, a dagger or so regs and stuff??

    just throwing it out there, i will be doing this no matter what but just seeing if i can get anyone else on board!

    I hope this takes off, and i hope that people don't abuse it if it does :bowdown:


    So Thank you Nezumi-Kozo.... your kindness will be used to help others!!

    You could always put a house up in town, even if you don't join later. Outside Minoc stables. There are 6 houses and least 2 other spots right now, one right next to the tower. (Both of them used to have houses, but people come and go.)

    I picked it because it's next to town, it's a funnel for everyone that runs to their house in the entire north minoc area, and there's a t2a entrance nearby. I use the entrance all the time. Check 5 or 6 spots then go somewhere else.

    Everyone who wants to do anything north of Minoc and in Minoc (or in the Mines) has to run through us.

    In regards to location of a house...it really depends on what you plan as far as your template, and what you plan to do with the house. If it's a vendor location, then find something close to a gate...keeping a vendor in place is expensive and many people drop their vendors shortly after seeing that the vendor prices on Siege are 3x that of production shards.

    If you template has no magery to gate you around...you probably again, want to be near an area you plan to hang out...or can get to relatively quickly.

    Personally, my towner is right outside the gates of Cove. I wish there was a gate portal there so I could get more traffic, but it's alright...la

    Ummm, you could have joined the thief guild on Siege the first minute you created your character here. There is no time limit or skill limit for joining.

    Rofl...la

    would be an honour to place it in town, are you going to be on later tonight and you can show me where i place it!

    what sort of price tag do the houses have on them? when placing i mean, just realised that they will be much more expensive :)

    Custom plots are the same price as production shard...the old style homes are 3x time the price of production shards...I think...I know a Lg Tower is about 750k to place...la

    Try looking in Cove. I have heard of other thief GM's being bugged. The one in Cove has let everyone that has tried, into the guild without fail...la

    greatly appreciated!

    thanks for all your help , only been back on a few days but i already remember how much I loved the game! before it was maimed by tram rules almost everywhere!

    Siege is the way forward for me now, i will keep my other chars for old times sake but Jackal is going to be all i play now!

    Had no problems join the guild in Cove as you suggested :)

    Might be worth adding that to the FAQ as i tried the one in serps hold (as it was closer) and when i gave her the gold she just said " you are giving me gold, Money os always need" or something.

    so i slapperd her in the funbags and went to cove... P.S your tower is frikkin sweet

    Well, I'd rather not make this the Siege Thief Forum, although it's getting close to it. :) ...la
