    Mesanna bribed players to gank me in fel. After doing so she rewarded them with this bow. It is a slayer with the name of my character on it.

    I smell something funny, and it's emanating from my computer. Nope, temperatures are all good!

    I have a hunch we're not getting the whole story here, and maybe not even part of it...

    I wonder if that dev earned the money for the bribe or just "duped" himself some gold and payed those people off...

    Whats the rest of the story why did she feel the need to have you killed?

    Was there somthing oyu did to deserve the wrath of other players, that reached the attention of a dev who agreed and decided to reward the bounty hunters?

    I agree.

    Reminds me of the thread he created about spamming:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=210292

    Which it turned out to be not the whole story there as well. Turned out HE was spamming at an EM event after being asked to stop repeatedly before being banned.

    0% chance that you're giving enough of the story for anyone to make a judgement on.

    If you were honest, you'd gladly tell the whole thing, if not, then you'd make it intentionally obscure... so...

    Haha, I like Mesanna even more now :D

    I have a chat Ignore list of names that needs bows named after them. The ideal of those in power hanging out in game doing things from the hip is exciting. Just need more eyes on large player activities and reward those for selfless acts. And if in your shoes I'd only be down due to the fact all the gold I have couldn't buy one of my named bows. Better would be besides demon slayer if they had UBWS, 69% Curse Self and -50% HCI & DI as mods.

    Secondly you should blank out the names of chars / players on stratics posts

    Your previous actions do not bode well in your favor of anyone feeling any sympathy. also you should consider following the stratics rules of not showing char names in your posts.

    I agreed, It would be kickin (yes I used the word kickin) to be the object of a hunt even if I hadn't done anything and Mesanna just wanted to have some fun.
    I mean at least she's active in the game.

    Oh and you aren't telling the whole story, I'm sure cause I've seen some of the things she's put up with including some of the cats players coming up getting naked and start caps typing "I'M ON A BOAT I'M ON A MOTHER ******* BOAT" and that wasn't censored when they said it. My suspicion is that the other responses were right and you've probably been actively trying to ruin things.

    Also you had less Str than 30 either way that's weak haha (and I'm pretty sure that says 30). Stat loss? even with stat that is ridiculous.

    Right or wrong I really appreciate Mesanna's sense of humor.

    That is simply classic.

    Well, at least it explains why she hasn't taken down the DSFASFA small towers on LA like she SAID she would. She's been too busy with this other important stuff...rolleyes:

    Nope. To the question.

    It is a pretty lame bow. Is that why you are mad?

    If I were a dev, I probably would have banned you if you tried to ruin an event.

    Overstepping her boundries ? Nah I don't this so, but just think now there is something named after you in the game that you do not own. :)

    Do you mean definitely?

    And replaced??? I hope that's sarcasm. If not, god no! Get out of here! She's one of the best devs on board!

    Hmm... i'd be interested in the story behind this. Its pretty used for something new and its just a demon slayer (and why a demon slayer?). Looks like a modified Juka bow but renamed. Also why does it say "Mesanna" at the end?

    Id be interested to know more :)
     
  36. Tinsil

    Tinsil Guest

    My guess is the demon slayer because he's one of the most lying, annoying players I've ever met, and I only met him for about 30 minutes on Napa.

    Mesanna because that's who gave it out!

    OY VEY sux it up hawk Dev have done this before. Infact first year they use to come and make hell on napa all the time and Catskills too. I doubt any of the original shards went without a dev making havoc. Hehe infact one holloween hehe they killed off 3/4s of the shard in the moonglow graveyard. Players love it Mesanna is playing her part of a meanie very well and I aplaud her actions to get the shard off their duff to hunt you.

    I think the OP's just angry that his bow has jack all for mods. Your one chance to get recognized by the devs and it's a bow that will only unravel into Residue :p

    Oh please.. I have 2 things named after my toon that were brought into the game by the glorious, err Murderous Mesanna (before anyone jumps the horse here, I was NOT disrupting an event). And I can say without any eqivication.. it is a wonderful thing. I would gladly jump through hoops to have more items with my character's name on it.

    So, as so rightfully stated in previous posts.. I call BULL on the OP. The entire story is not out there and even if what was relayed was the complete god's honest truth.. then shut up, sit down and man up!

    I guess in all fairness... The item should've had a timer.

    I've received an item before from Mesanna and it had a timer.. Items such as these I think should, to keep with the integrity of the game I suppose.

    I was at this event and it was well deserved.And from what i recall hawk was calling people out to meet him at yew the recipent of this bow took the challenge and went to yew,and returned very shortly .So it wasnt even a bribe more of a reward messena didnt say whoever kills him gets something.

    Seems like harmless fun to me, In fact its very nice to see a dev taking such an interesting in UO.

    Well done Mesanna, You probably made a lot of people very happy with that 'event'! :)
