Double clicking Threads of Fate and Life Discovery

Discussion in 'UHall' started by imported_Phyrra, Mar 31, 2008.

  1. So I thought I'd give it a shot and try double clicking the threads tonight to see if anything happened.. Nothing seemed to happen except for a few things.. This is what was seen after clicking them.

    Fate: "Regret and remorse fall away at long last: you feel forgiven" "Feelings of warmth and appreciation wash over you: you've gained something." "Despair and sorrow sink to the depths of your soul: a precious thing was lost."

    Life: "A jumble of thoughts tumble chaotically through, but at last the confusion passes." "For a brief moment you are able to believe something as someone else does, yet it doesn't last." "You have a child." "You are born."

    After which they were followed with "The experience fades away as you break contact with the thread..."

    Also, if you click on them again too soon you get: "Nothing happens, perhaps you are too tired from your last attempt?"

    Not sure what any of this means, but maybe someone out there has an idea? Has anyone else had this happen?

    [Edit] A friend clicked on his and this is what message he received from fate: "for one pure moment absolute joy overwhelms you: you've never felt happier!" and "The coldness bursts into flame; For a moment your hatred knows no bounds." also "Passion dances with lust: you know what you want"

    And from life: "You made a new friend" also "You begin working" as well as "You face a dark wood with two paths, and finally choose the one you wish to travel"

    Fate: "A jumble of thoughts tuble chaotically through, but at last the confusion passes." as well as... "Feelings of warmth and appreciation wash over you: you've gained something." (this last one I'm pretty sure was from fate, but it was right next to a life so I could be wrong)

    Life: "Regret and remorse fall away at long last: you feel forgiven"

    ? did the thread still stay in your backpack or was it used up after doing that? also the part about being or feeling forgiven is a way out of the blackrock infection from using it maybe!

    Nope, the thread did not disappear. And maybe? I noticed that the one phrase hasn't been repeated yet, while the other two have been. "Feelings of warmth and appreciation wash over you: you've gained something." has yet to be repeated.
     
  4. Just a thought....is this a way to select a side?
     
  5. Not sure.. I know another friend is getting nothing when he clicks on them. Also, I'll update the first post with any other messages myself or anyone receives. Had to fix the messages from threads. Apparently, I get confused too easily this late at night.
     
  6. Christ, is there ANYTHING involved with this event that makes ANY sense?

    Ok

    After some testing with some friends... it appears that only people with NEGATIVE KARMA will get something from the threads.

    People with POSITIVE KARMA will get nothing.

    Neutral karma, so far, has yielded no messages.

    I tried double clicking my threads of fate and life and got no such luck. Can you explain more the details of where you clicked them? Was it in the Alternate Moonglow? did you have three different types of threads? What's your karma and fame level?

    Just a thought.

    To select side, do you think it's positive vs. negative karma?

    Like hitting dark wisp, you gain karma and hitting the FE, you lose karma.

  15. Some history on the Shadowlords that could possibly be tied into these message. We're trying to figure out what each one could mean, but go to this thread if you want to see what we're trying to tie them into. Sutek Thread

    It seems to me that you only get messages if you have the lowest possible karma level. I have a char for RP purposes who is only "Evil" ("evil" just sounds better than any other title :p) but he does not get a message from threads. Anywhere (moonglow, alternate moonglow) and he's the one that cast armageddon, went to both events, had blackrock, etc.

    My necro, however, who has the lowest karma title can get messages.

    Noted. Thank you [​IMG]
     
  18. Okay.. seems I wasn't right either.
    I lowered my "evil" mage's karma to the lowest tier, and still nothing. Note that he is a wrestling, weaving mage.
    So, I tried it on my red mage (lowest karma) - nothing happened. Red necro: bingo! Blue necro fencer: bingo. Other blue necro fencer on other account: bingo.

    So, it seems, only necromancers can use the threads.

    Do the threads raise/lower karma when used?

    Maybe the direction of the thread, &amp; the type of thread determines the resulting action based on your karma.


    Seems odd they would release 2 types of thread, in two different directions. I could see if they were really rare, for collector purposes, but these arnt. So I'm thinking theres something else behind it.

    Hmm, is there some common "thread" between the various templates being used successfully to double click the threads?

    Perhaps its a matter of ability and not alignment.

    Well....seeing as I love testing things *grins*

    I am Estimable on my Bushido Archer, clicked a thread of fate...nothing
    Estimable on Maharia my Evil blackrock infected, voice-hearing Tamer...nothing
    Estimable on Kili my swordswoman...nothing
    Eminent on my Crafter...Nothing
    Notable on my Red Larisa...Nothing

    BUT.....my NecroMage...

    Necromancers are DEFINATLY going to be playing a role in this somehow...

    As a general curiosity. Does this happen to involve merely spirit speak? Not too often do you find a necro without it. Perhaps it's not the necromancy at all...

    I received a different message from the thread of fate..."Clarity leads you to an insightful thought, and you find yourself pleased with your rationale."

    Blackweb...what charactor type were you on when you received that message? Karma level?
     
  34. What happens if you have tailoring and spirit speak and you click on a thread?

    I have a theory that we'll be able to combine the threads using tailoring.

    My only character who can get messages has actually been to the time warped Moonglow.

    None of the others, no matter their skills, karma, or fame levels can get any message from the threads but he is also the only one I have with spirit speak: gm SS.

    How about for the rest of you? Are you getting the messages with characters who have never gone over?
     
  36. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Ok, my necro or ss user more accurately gets the "Feeling of euphoria" repeatedly...

    He has lowest karma. He has also rarly left the house. I was building him in the house to pvp with, but my zeal for extra crafting space took over and he ended up just being a spare crafter.

    So maybe there must be things that the character has done that effects the message. Have you pked anyone on your character? If so what message do you get? Did your character turn in blackrock to the robed guys? Are you blackrock infected? Try clicking them with a cloak of corruption or the planesword or shield equipped?

    You guys are killin me....I gotta find a 105 SS Scroll to eat on my tailor...*grins*

    Since so far we've seen only the SS activate the threads.....what kind of odd combinations do we have?

    And on BOTH my necros, red and blue, blue is dread, red is nefarious, I got the same message, neither one were in Moonglow on the first OR second day, I have only been in the timerift on my tamer, archer and swordswoman.

    Same message on my Tailor....104.1 SS...maybe we get different messages depending on what our SS is at???

    My Red Necro has 110 SS..so maybe over GM we get that message...anyone with 120 get a different message??

    Some of the messages from the Thread of Fate seem to be connected with the Principles of Love, Truth and Courage, or the corresponding Anti-Principles of Hatred, Falsehood and Cowardice. The Shadowlords are the embodiments of the Anti-Principles...

    HATRED - "The coldness bursts into flame: for a moment your hatred knows no bounds."

    TRUTH - "Clarity leads you to an insightful thought, and you find yourself pleased with your rationale."

    COWARDICE - "Fear rises from the pit of your stomach you flee, you flee without hesitation"

    Some of the other sentences remind me of the principles of Order&amp;Chaos from Serpent Isle...

    Larisa, I was on a GM Necro/Spirit Speak with Glorious title karma. Oh, and actually I made a mistake..it was the thread of life that I got that message from. not the thread of fate.

    I noticed that the threads say the same thing over and over.

    For example, I lined mine up 1-6.

    1 always said You have made a friend

    2 Always said You are blinded by colors...

    And so on. I have not tried with another character to see if the thread changes for them yet, but on the one tested, it was as such.
     
  47. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Which makes me wonder if you wont be able to use the threads to change the cloaks to what ever virtue (or anti virtue) thread you use on it. SO you could end up with a robe of hate or love.

    Maybe?
     
  48. GWAR_LS

    GWAR_LS Guest

    Hmm Well tryed it with the robe on the Thread of Life that is. It said (You Protect somthing) then it wore off. ????? didnt notice anything.
    Then I tried the Fate with the robe on and it said Love had been returned by another. then wore off. nothing either...

    Im thinking it might be a way to un-infect your blackrock infected chars.
