    About Pathos

    Yesterday, I Yahaxithonix decided to follow up on the rumored report of a fellow inflicting death upon the Orcs at the fort to the East of Luna.

    Finding no one there, I explored the Eastern Crystal Fens and I found a house owned by a player named Pathos. It was in a state of decay! Curiosity made me peer into the windows to see a treasure trove contained there.

    I pondered upon the struggle of Greed upon my soul. It was a remote site. Few buildings about and fewer people in traffic; should I keep the secret to myself? It was then I was shocked at the loss standing before me. I heard this name: Pathos. Surely others know of Pathos. Shamed was I in my coveting his things. Pathos was a person, not a collection of objects.

    What a name he had. Pathos means the feelings about one’s own struggles over sufferings. What did he suffer? How did he struggle? What brought his house to this end?

    I decided to share the IDOC with others. I told Sara Dale and she posted the IDOC on the forum.

    The house of Pathos fell at 9:03 AM CST on July 2, 2010. There were several members of GIL present. We indulged like children do at the Christmas holidays.
    I thank Pathos for the following items:

    List:
    1. Five checks one million gold each.
    2. Quiver of the Elements
    3. Robe of the Equinox times three.
    4. Gloves of the Pugilist times two
    5. Axe of the Heavens
    6. Soul Seeker dyed
    7. Sword of Stampede
    8. Staff of Power times three, one dyed blue, two dyed grey
    9. Flesh Ripper times two
    10. Shield of Invulnerability times two
    11. Polar Bear Mask dyed blue
    12. Heart of the Lion times three, one dyed blue
    13. Aegis of Grace times three, one dyed blue
    14. Aegis of Grace in necklace form.
    15. Righteous Anger times two
    16. Dance Blade times three.
    17. Quiver of Rage times three
    18. Enchanted Titan Leg Bone
    19. Raed’s Glory
    20. Fey Leggings times three, one dyed blue
    21. Iolo’s flute times four
    22. Violet Courage times two, dyed red purple
    23. Bloodwood Spirit times two, Ratman Shaman Protection +14, Orc Lord Protection +33
    24. Totem of Void times three, Hell Hound Protection +50, Gaman Protection + 28, Gaman Protection +29
    25. Arctic Death Dealer times two
    26. Helm of Swiftness
    27. Cavorting Club
    28. Alchemist’s Bauble
    29. Bow of the Juka King
    30. Night Kiss
    31. Nox Ranger’s Heavy Crossbow
    32. Burgular’s Bandana times two
    33. Wingsong
    34. Assassin Armor sleeves
    35. Greymist Armor gloves times two
    36. Death’s Essence Armor, tunic, leggings, and gloves
    37. 266 pieces of Luck/ mana regeneration armor and Luck weapons.
    38. Various T-maps and MiB…
    39. numerous rings uncounted.


    Afterward, I pause to reflex about Pathos. From what we found in his house I am sure he played well, and did all he could on his part to be part of the game. Can we all say the same?

    If WHY we play is important to us, the the HOW is just the means to the ends of play. We each need to find better reasons to the WHY we are part of the game. That is our struggle! Lest we try to play better in this game we will suffer the same pathos.

    Until our paths cross, I wish Pathos a farewell.
