    No im not quiting, no im not selling my house....Now dat that is cleared up I will be selling off afew of my rares. I have bills that have to be paid and im still struggling a little from when i lost my house in hurricane Gustav. Im not doing horrible but selling a few of these items should help me get over this hump ive been stuck on now for the past 6 months. I would love for these items to stay on Napa because it took alot of hard work to find these and bargain people into selling them off other shards. I will create a list and post it later tonight.

    So is this why ($$) you sold the house you were given in Luna by Cherry & her hub to Nabin or to anyone, it doesn't matter who ? Wasn't that a stipulation as why you were given the home in the 1st place that that it always be open & available for people to use (not sold to make a profit)... Not cool . You should of kept it within your C!C Guild & not sold it! I'm sorry, just my thoughts on it. I am disappointed

    i dont know the details of the deal myself between Gus and Nabin because i havnt been online in awhile!, but from what i do understand is that the house wont change and the runebook library and look of the house will not change as per the original agreement...at least thats what ive been told..would have to hear from gus on that one,

    Otis, That is correct. This house is a historic peace of our Napa Community. The Structure and Design will stay the same. This house was built for the purpose of giving back to the community and it will remain in that vision with its runebooks and such.

    The Old Give and Take Pub has been moved into the bottom area. Frazer the barkeep is brewing his first set of Ale which should be ready later today and Caryn would be happy to serve you while you sit by the fire and explore the treasures of the many Chests by the fire.

    The Function of the Old Give and Take Pub is right in line with the Community purpose of the building. People of Napa can drop of and donate items they no longer need and anyone can take anything from a chest there. It is all freely given.

    The pub enjoyed a good amount of use at its last location and Frazer & Caryn are looking forward to your visit.

    Sunrise, They did find your tab and it is sitting on your favorite chair as usual.

    Snakeman, if you were in a position where you may need money to pay bills/support family etc. You wouldnt do the same thing? I know I and most people would. My families well being comes before this game. If I ever need money to cover real life situations, I most definetly would sell that Luna house. It was sold knowing it would remain the same and not change. Just my thoughts anyhow. Good for Gus I say.

    thats great to hear!, that was the original agreement with the previous owner!, they really wanted the look and feel of the house to stay the same, napa luna landmark!, Gus really needed the deal and nobody can blame him for that, after all he did lose his RL house to Hurricane Guztav and it cant be easy rebuilding what losses that must have caused!!...on a side note
    never judge a man unless you have walked a mile in his shoes...that way your a mile away and you have his shoes..lol jk, had to add some humor here

    Absolutely Otis, good for Gus. Like I said, I am sure most of us would do the same, especially since house will remain as is.

    Been there & done differently, so don't give me that lingo please. I have a good idea what he's going through. I know the 1st thing I did was give up my recreational pleasures that cost $ like UO does. (And those pleasures did make me money, but the pay back was way after the initial payout so it wasn't worth the wait when immediate, what little cash we had, went to pay bills, food, etc)
    Now I'm going to hit on Gus' statement here
    And what did we do..... Just what we said he was not going to do. no im not selling my house....Now dat that is cleared up.......
    People can do as they wish, it's a free world. Gus did what he did. I just don't agree with it or how it was done. It should of been given to a guild member, not taking a home given to you & making profit off it. If he was that concerned with his bills, he should of thought of that 9 mos ago when he took possession of the home & given up the game that was costing him $9.99 a month to 12.99 a month.
    It's done, it's over nothing can change that. GL Gus & hope the new Luna house location & what $ you did get helps your bills.
    Glad the place will stay as is too Nabin. Ty from all those people I see running there nightly to find a rune they need & recall to it.

    Well just for the record withing the past 9 months my wife left and we filed for divorce. that in itself ran me close to 2800$ In july i split my scalp open with a pipe which had its cost also. In august me and wife decided to get back together but the divorce cost were nonrefundable and now i have the cost of thearpy for her and the marriage counseling for the both of us. I wasnt going to sell the house and sale off my rares but after finding out that the resale rate for gold was a measly .35 a mil i might as well have gave them away. And if you dont trust my word let me know ill upload the pictures of the house i had, my divorce papers and pictures from my accident. I have nothing to hide. Ever since I had that house ive helped anyone on Napa not just in my own guild that needed a few leather, ingots, scrolls, gold, silver, etc. I never took advantage of anyone in this game. Someone asked for a vendor spot i gave them one free, no rental. After the hurricane i only got enough money from my insurance to pay off my loan on my house. Fema reimbursed me for a chainsaw to remove the 70 ft pine tree that layed through the middle of my house. I had to pay out of my pocket to demolish and remove the house. I had to live out of a 14 ft camper trailor with my wife and 2 kids for three months after before insurance paid its parts and i could find a place to rent. So not picking on you Mr Snake but anyone that cares to say they know what im going to I dare them to walk a mile in my shoes.

    Sorry to hear about all your problems Gus, and the thing I don't think anyone
    knows is that house was an LRON member's house from the day Malas
    opened till it got traded.

    I think Otis said it best..walk a mile in someone elses shoes and now they are a mile away and you have there shoes..

    Dang man. Im sorry to hear about that. At least you and your wife did get back together.

    Also just remember. Its just a game. Some day the plug will be pulled on it, Or us... Don't let the bastards get you down....

    I wish you Gods Speed and a soon to be return to the world of pixle crack :D

    Gus no reason to explain yourself. Its a game, bad things happen to good people. We would have done the same, dont feel the need to explain it to people. If they dont like it, tough sh%t ya know?

    Gus -

    There is no need to tell everyone what's going on... not saying this in a bad way, mind you, but I really don't think it is anyone's business what you do with your stuff - in game or otherwise - nor do you need to explain what you do.

    Where I am glad the property will keep the rune books (used them from time to time myself) and that you got some cash out of the deal to help you IRL - it is really no one's business but yours, and the person you did business with.

    I've been in your shoes... and I feel for you dude. Just remember what is important to you and follow that.



    To the peanut gallery -

    So people are upset that Nabin has the property now. Well you know what, I've seen more good come from Nabin and others who work very hard to keep the Napa community thriving than many others who post on these boards or elsewhere who are crying foul and saying bad things. People need breaks, people need money, and I've seen Nabin and a few others time and time again turn around and help as they can.

    Far be it for me to speak against a person leaving or using assets in his/her possession to better his/her situation. I've done it myself... what is important here is that 1-Gus is able to situate his life and 2-Gus will return to wreck havoc as he sees fit. It is actually really responsible of him to let the property go to someone who has time and time again proven to have the interest of the community in mind... I know of so many others who would just about kill for that property and rake in the dough without a second thought.

    So Nabin is charging the vendors now. So Nabin is rearranging the interior...

    o_O

    He needs to fund his enterprise somehow... I gawk at the number of accounts the man holds to preserve little pieces of Napa in so many ways. Just as I would gawk at Gabe as he worked so hard to preserve Mith (which for the most part still stands). People like Nabin and Gabe, although I do not always agree with their ideal, DO preserve what history is left on our shard.

    Believe me, if I had the funds (instead of a mortgage and college fees for my younger son) I'd be on that bandwagon as well. I tried... and some history was lost (Red Eye Tavern) on my watch and I am forever kicking myself in the ass for NOT finding someone else who could take things over there.




    Flame me as you will... pfft... I've been flamed by the best. But I think it would do well by all if they would just stop, consider their sins, and move forward knowing that were they in circumstances that required action - action they would take for their own betterment, not for others and most definitely not for pixels...

    Very well said and I totally agree with you totally :D It is just a game and if I had the money also. I am glad tho there is someone who does have it. Nothing wrong in that! Three cheers to Nabin I say :D

    Btw Nabin..does this help my bar tab? :p


    Now I will flame you :p

    You have a kid in college??? DANG!!!! No wonder your spelling and grammer is very well done. Many years of trying to beat it into your kids heads? :D I just never thought U were old enough to have a young kid in college..Unless of course hes a genius and is only 12 :p

    My eldest is a specialist in the army.... will be 20 in January.
    My youngest is a freshman in college.... is 18 going on 30.

    My spelling (for the most part, unless I'm ticked off) is due to the fact that I am a published author... if not, I'd not have much money.


    For the record... I'm over 40. :p But I periodically get carded for my booze... as if I'm that young! I still go dancing, I still turn heads, and I still swish my hips as I walk. :p No old lady here!!!

    I'm more into video games than my own sons... go figure!

  30. GoodLuck to you Gus.. i am just disgusted in who you sold it too.. one of thee biggest disgraces in uo in my mind.. the one who plays the game for money, he low balls to buy and then tries to flip his houses and keeps,castles ect for outrages prices on a dead shard napa..yes yes yes, he gave a luna house away.. whoaaa.. who cares.. but to sell to this fool just disgust me. i hope life treats you better.. oh ya thank you for banning me from your "Open to the public House" right away.. dont worry i have more than one account :loser:

    I dunno who you are... I really don't care. But the more I read you under this nik I just gotta wonder.. is the pot calling the kettle black? Do YOU care about Napa other than to make a quick buck? Are you even PLAYING on Napa, or just vending? Calling Napa a dead shard makes me think you are not playing Napa, and as such don't really have much of a contribution to the shard.

    What happens between people is between them... and as such you should just keep your nose out and move along. Bad mouthing people (whether you like them or not) just makes you look like a whiner cry baby who perhaps lost out on a deal.. eh? Too bad, so sad.


    And call me an arse kisser all you want... dun matter to me.

    The only reason why that may have been done was because of the way that vendor made me look with how you handled that. people were constantly wanting to know about the drama going on at that house on that chat crap thing. second i dont recall banning ou because i never saw u again after that day. i hhad 2 other people co owned to that house just to give them storage space and stuff close the bank maybe they did idk. but i do know i have not seen you sense that day so there is no way i could ban you.
     
  33. not you bro its the clown you sold the house too.. and to the other post about me from the wannabe "milf" i do care about napa and i have 2 luna houses that i keep FULLY loaded with vendors so that people on napa dont need to xfer to other shards to actually find anything.. because yes napa is a dead shard and i have had many people come up to me and tell me thank you from bringin vendors with good items back to napa.. but nabin is only in it for profit so check yourself..

    You must be referring to the other thread where I said I am NO milf... please check yourself.


    I am not defending anyone over anything. Just stating that it is no one's business but the ones immediately involved. And there you are posting to sell... out... for profit.

    Like I said, pot calling the kettle black.


    pft.
     
  35. lol i am selling out cause i am done with all the bs.. the garbage who runs this shard in luna the market.. why play the game when puke like him sit here and take over everything. SA has killed the game more than you lil trammies know.. it made all you peasents a lil more equal to the leet players that built there leet items and gear over the years to have SA come out and kill the value of everthing, please guild chat your fellow trammie who cryed to the mods about not being able to have good stuff.. the game is dyin and i am done with all the lil peasents..

    Ok..Umm the game has been dieing since 2000. :D

    Second. SA didn't do anything new. Heck a few years ago it was the champs spawns and who owned them. Before that it was the cheats which are still around..and the list goes on and on.

    If ya dont like the luna market..either ONE go somewhere else. Yeah it might take a little more time to find it BUT its out there. Two Make your own somewhere else. Alot of empty land out there.


    I do hate to see anyone go. But dang it...Quit reading napa stratics., It seems like your misery starts from that.

    There is SO much more to this game....go out there and live it up.

    Also Kirth does have a point. I have had many friends quit because of the BS and they let there home and stuff drop. To the lucky players who were there when it did drop kudos to them. How can you complain about profit when you wont do it the OLD fashion way. Since you kinda sound like you are old fashion. :D

    I know what you're saying/thinking Gus.

    I have only 1 account now and that's to hold onto the Zento house $15 a month is nothing converting from Euro's and I may return full time someday.
    For now I'm kicking back on WoW and working on my writings and poetry (though not a fantasic one, lol)

    Here's one of mine just for an example:

    Wild, that is my home,
    Mountains climb and rivers foam,
    'Ere an eagles pirecing cry,
    It's swept wing form in the azure sky.

    This is my land, 'tis wherein my kin,
    Hearth and home and joy within,
    No matter where I roam upon the earth,
    I will always come back to the land of my birth.
