    I have been kicking an idea around the last couple days and actually wanted some shardwide input on it. First, let me begin by saying that when this shard lost the orcs it lost alot. Second, let me say i have no interest in making an orc style role-play guild. I also do not necessarily wish to change my current guild affiliation per say.

    I have noticed that the remaining large guilds on this shard tend to be very strict about holding memberships in other guilds; warfare has become extremely personal. There was a time when many people who were members in good standing of various major siege guilds were also members of the ORCS, UND, and others. I personally held membership in CWS, ORC, SHR simutaneously. Most of my guildmates knew this although I kept my specific orc a secret from all but my closest circle of friends.

    Now, after having said all that, my idea is to form a red, non-factioned guild of murders whose sole purpose is to log on and fight. The only real rules I have in mind are NO TAMERS, YOU MUST BE RED, and DON"T BE A ****. Factions will not be an option. I really do not envision playing a "highend" pvp game with this guild. It's purpose will be for just logging on and fighting and most likely will not be for people who get overly ticked about dying.
    The guild would welcome any red who wanted to join; regardless of other guild affiliations and would act as a balancing force on the field. Basically we would help whoever is being ganked or tamed to to death. If we happen to be the gank sqaud then we would just attack everyone until either they die, flee, or kill us. The end result? More fighting.

    I could go on but I am starting to ramble and would really like to hear other's input on this.

    *smiles* No one is permitted to ramble but me. :)

    But I have an idea for ye new guild abbrev. though.... DBAD

    kinda looks like 'the bad' or 'da bad' but is the abbrev. for
    Don't be a dickhead. :)

    :danceb:
     
  3. I think the aforementioned guilds worked because of the excellent roleplay of the orcs, never coming out of character. Almost everyone who had the notion to rp wanted to be an orc, and would learn the lingo to try and get in. They had a fabulous theme as did UDL (but the orcs were comical and entertaining pks) and I think that's what it's all about.

    I know the orcs were the main reason I went to BGY every night I was around, we would all stand there and wait for the mojoka to gate them in... I went down with a HOOWAH many a time.

    If you could get something going with some rp, I'm sure you'd get a lot of interested parties.

    Yeah I agree siege lost a lot when they lost the orcs, and as Shak said it was amazing how they never came out of character. I also think siege took a huge hit when they took T2A away from us also. Some of the best moments were held there. I feel like I lost my best friend everytime I start thinking about how fun Siege (UO) used to be.

    But yeah Tibs I think it's a pretty solid idea myself.

    This is not a new idea...essentially, your group will roam around where you
    think people are and chose to do one of these activities: 1. Attack farmers of
    raw materials or items whether they have Pets or not. 2. Attack Champion spawn
    players, which is many ways the same as farming players. 3. Find solo players
    in transit to activities and chase them to kill them. 4. Encounter existing
    fighting groups and eventually kill both...5. most probably some of your new
    group will actively use Tracking to find those who actively avoid your group via
    stealth skills, etc.

    I unstand you are bored... but repackaging this idea needs a pretty bow.

    Add in MUST STAY IN CHARACTER, and this is basically the rules of my guild. I will not drop the LICH guild, even though I've been the only member for several years, but I would like to ally a guild like this. If you make it happen, and would like to have an RP element, please let me know.

    If you intend on RP, you must always at the beginning of an encounter to make
    conversation... the ORCs did that...

    However if you just attack...then do not expect conversation afterwards...

    This statement shows your complete ignorance of who I am, how I play, and my RP style. Can you save your comments for someone else? I have RPd in UO for about 10 years now, I think I have the hang of it. Thank you.....

    *edit*

    Roleplaying is not necessarily ALWAYS conversation, it is PLAYING A ROLE. Sometimes my role is that of a killer in search of something powerful to add to my collection, and sometimes it's my role to introduce myself to someone of interest who may, or may not be someone who can help achieve my goals. I have never made my goals public, and only a very few know what they are, and only one or two of them still play Siege.

    I have no doubt this is falling upon deaf ears/blind eyes, as you appear to RP the most narrowminded person on the planet, and anything outside your very myopic perspective seems to be invalid.

    I am not necessarily opposed to it having an rp flavor at all but it would definately need to be about clomping time and not story time. I just have no interest in trying to set up complicated roe rules and such. I do not think having loot rules or template rules is something I wish to engage in (we are already limiting some of the most powerful by not being in factions). I also would not see any problem with allying like minded small guilds who do not wish to relinquish thier "letters". The shard may very well need another "rp orc style" guild but it needs to be adapted to fit the current rules of the game.

    I do want to reiterate that this guild would not be doing stuff like champs, peerless, etc. Any munster farming would be for cash or raw materials for armour and completely voluntary. I also was thinking about maybe stakinga claim toa dungeon and having a supply house nearby. Shame comes to mind but thats biased because i remember alot of the old school fights that used to happen there. We would, as one poster stated, also hunt the poplar spots and yes probably engage the Luna crowd if no action is coming our way at whatever location is picked.

    Just to re-state: I am very much in a brainstorming stage about this and I do appreciate the input.

    Things that will be needed to get this rolling are;

    a map server
    vent server (maybe a public one)
    Housing near whatever home location is chosen.

    I think it sounds like an awesome idea.

    If anything with you guys picking a dungeon or location where you lay claim to it will allow us a spot to patrol on a regular basis if we are out looking for a fight.

    I would also look forward to a roving band of pk'ers who may stumble upon me farming. Sadly Siege seems to have a serious lack of pk'ers these days to make farming dangerous anymore.

    I have picked a location and placed a home. It is very close to the entrance of the ice dungeon which i intend to hunt along with the champ spawn on the t2a side. It is public except for access to the top floor where a resurrection anke, a shop, and a few supplies will be kept.

    I am still working on a name for the guild and I should be able to host a temporary map.

    Any imterested parties please pm me.

    I like this very much. While I am OK with an RoE for certain events on occasion, this is Siege, and from what I recall about RoE's from my days in the RP community on Catskills, they typically only cause problems in the long-run. I have my own personal RoE, which is basically 'no pets', and be honorable, but I don't expect anyone else to play by my personal rules, including others in my guild.

    I also very much like the idea of staking out an area, and defending it. I regularly patrol the areas around my houses, both in Homare, and my keeps near Safe Haven. Ice dungeon is only a couple minute run from those places, so it would fit in well with my current territory.

    I really hope this gets off the ground, and can be enjoyed by more than just those participating in the guild/alliance. Please do let me know if I can be of any help in getting things rolling!

    I have no intention of quitting i4ni but i would consider placing a red in a guild like this but i gotta question or 2?

    This guild would have no Alliances right? For example I mean just because your alts are in TNT u would be expected to attack them if situations call for it, right?

    next question

    Ice dungeon is nice but not many go there i would like to see a more popular dungeon like destard or despise as a dungeon to lay claim to

    Just scouted the despise area, and there's a few good spots very near there, including an L-shape spot, which has the same storage as an 18x18. They also make a great guild house.

    I've been doing what I do for far longer than you've been here. You sir, are in the vast minority. On the occasion when I do attack first, then talk later, probably 90% of the time they DO stick around to converse, and they generally seem to enjoy the interaction.

    Also, don't make it sound like the ORCs, and UND always talked first, then proceeded to attack. I was killed plenty of times by both, with no RP conversation at all.

    I will indeed continue doing what I've always done, and I really care very little for your opinion of what I do. You are not the authority of all that's RP in UO, or on Siege in particular. You do what you do, and I will what I do. I don't tell you how to count houses, or give the cold shoulder to everyone who doesn't fit your very narrow profile of how one should interact, so how about you get offa my nuts about how I choose to play the game?

    Announce your farming spot and I'm quite sure you will get all the danger you could ever hope for. :)

    Yes this is going to happen. I have resigned from TnT to pursue this. I will be around some this evening and will actually create the guild then.

    I will say I am very torn about doing this as TnT have been a fantastic group of people to play with and I still consider them all friends but I feel I can only give this idea a fair shot as an independant.

    Anyway It's time to go clean my house and spend some time with ym kid before she heads back to the ex's; I will be around later tonight.

    I have just placed a two story wood and plaster a screen south of the pass from brit to despise; I am leaving the one at ICE up also because I just like the area and the dungeon.

    I've never really understood why people attempt to make role PLAYING so complicated, and also invariably associate it with pages of long winded lore background, complex/strict codes of conducts, scripts, etc. It can certainly be that if that is what people want & enjoy, but IMO playing a role means PLAYING it, and making the role part of how you play.

    -Skylark

    P.S. if it is available, I'd suggest the guild abbreviation THUG for your guild, Tiberius. Simple, uncomplicated, and immediately conveys what your intent will be. A bunch of THUGs could probably have a fine time, and maybe even be roleplayers. ;)

    QFT!

    One of the many reasons I left Catskills was due to the ridiculous crying that a written RoC/RoE promotes. I got so sick of the scripted events, that really only served to boost the egos of those privileged enough to be an actor in the event. I got tired of hearing people cry about being killed with a tactic that was frowned upon, or crying about how so-and-so didn't RP exactly how someone else thought they should.

    The only rule I care to adhere to are the ones I impose upon myself via the role I play, and to stay in character at all times. The only exception is when I am in private with a personal friend who I know outside of UO as well, and that one night during Folger's [I^A] wake.

    Roleplaying (IMHO) should be playing a role, and playing it the best you know how. If that role is a silent killer in search of shinies, or some sort of idiot in search of shoes, then so be it. I never signed any kind of agreement when I logged onto Siege for the first time that said I must adhere to anyone else's opinion of how to RP, nor did I agree to engage in polite conversation at any point, with anyone. I play Rykus, a Death Knight who kills for specific purposes, and converses when it is appropriate.

    Ok, I have decided to stick with the depise/chaos area and scrap the ice idea (it is just to remote and I have already gotten some fights at despise). I also do not relish tryign to get to supply houses up and running.
