    The Avatar is big part of UO lore and this Christmas there was a rather impressive movie released called Avatar, thus it's a play on both those things....

    No ****, Sherlock. But that still doesn't make it have anything to do with a day devoted to pranks.

    Well, it helps to have a sense of humor. I know a bunch of people who were surprised and got a chuckle out of it.

    When did tiller men talk? I was on a boat fishing and the tiller man starts telling a story. "Ar! Did I ever tell the about the time I was in Moonglow and I met a fellow who could tell you all about about every sort of animal there ever was? Anyways, 'tis a dull story." Then afterwards he tells a story about the time he went to bucs den.

    How about, next time you log in all your character's skills are set to 0, but just yours. I think that would be a pretty funny prank. :eek:snap:

    If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now. It's just a sprinkling for the May Queen.

    Aran has a sense of humor, but he only laughs at other peoples' expense.

    See, that's something Aran would laugh at, assuming it was permanent. :D
     
  31. Kiminality

    Kiminality Guest

    I'm kind of agreeing with Aran, only more diplomatically.
    I have a passionate dislike of April Fools day, so most of the "hilarity" that occurs falls on stony ground. An entire day dedicated to trying to dupe people with misinformation strikes me as more annoying than funny.

    I can see what they're doing, at least as far as is understood here (there may be more, that has yet to be understood). But there's no suspension of disbelief, no subtle misinformation, or bait/switching.
    Y'all are so quick to jump on Aran, which I'll admit is a personal hobby of mine. But the root question is a fair one - Where's the prank?

    The prank is logging on expecting to see your character standing there but instead seeing a blue avatar from a movie.

    Pranks? What pranks? I don't have time for such frivolous pursuits - I'm down here in the Rat Cavern searching high and low for that damned Rodent Realtor. I bought an UO lottery ticket for 5 million that offers a house plot in the Abyss ...

    Yes, it's just an april fools joke. If you mount your horse (or whatever you prefer to ride) or start flying (if you're a gargoyle) you will turn back to your normal looking character. It only changes your appearance for a bit. You can't control when you change, it happens when you log in.

    I think it is very cool.........my daughter logged in last nite and was in a panic. She was yelling in vent, MOM, why am I an Avatar and why am I in a weird form. Then I realize it was an April Fool's Day joke and I got a huge laugh out of it.

    My "problem" with this sort of thing is that I'm sort of a purist from old school roleplay.
    "If it happened, it happened."
    So silly things like this that make no sense and don't stick to the lore bother me. I just try to ignore it. It is too much like WoW goofiness.

    Think even holding a weapon can prevent the avatar transformation. At least that´s the only explanation I can think of for my untransformed and unmounted archer. Or it´s because she was blue even before today ;)
