    Let me start out by saying that Minax, Shadowlords, True Britains and Council of Mages are hostile towards each other. I am in TB.

    So, just 5min ago I popped to Fire Dungeon. There was a SL that I attacked. Soon a CoM came inside Fire Dungeon and much to my surprise he started attacking me. The SL ran to the Despise teleporter and I killed the CoM.

    I ran after the SL to the Despise teleporter with teleport pre-casted and swiftly teleported out of the trap. I saw Minax and SL holding hands and working together.

    Lets recap: TB vs SL -> TB vs SL+CoM -> TB vs SL+Minax. Is it just me or is there something wrong here? Am I just too scary and powerful with my crap mage and 150ms that all 3 factions have to ally vs a SINGLE TB?

    Enlighten me. Please.
     
  2. Hehe... the hard fact is, this won't be the last time u have all the factions to go against you.... However, according to my knowledge, the number of CoM should not be too large...

    The good news is, TB is still doing a fair job to keep most of the sigi in Felucca.

    The largest Com and a Minax guild are allied. SL usually doesn't work with either, but they always seem to team up on TB.

    I usually dismount and disarm for SL against FKD. I hate people that screw with their tile file.

    Corrupting them at times when no-ones on isnt good!

    Maybe you should leave them and start corruption when people are actually on that give a damn. Now the timers are back to "normal" and all.

    It takes 10 hours, I'm sure someone can try and stop them.

    I was under the impression it was 4 hours to corrupt for 10 hours of corruption??

    Everytime i log on they cannot be corrupted, i dont think ive seen them able to be stolen in about 2weeks now!

    It's 10 hours to corrupt now, and corruption is back to lasting 3 days. This was re-implemented recently.

    Indeed. I'm not sure who in TB is stealing them (we try to keep a policy of not taking them from town posts when we own them), but they're corrupting in our base untouched and undefended at all times of the day.

    The last time the sigs were taken was my doing as we were TRYING to get SOMEONE in another faction to pay attention... for those that know my thieves, they know what I mean... anyway, we even left them in base past corruption.... *sigh*....

    At this point, it is with a heavy heart that I say.... TB watch out for a "rogue" enemy thief with a familiar name ... she will be taking your sigis and trying to make them her own. Yep, you will all die laughing watching a minimally skilled thief attempting to DEFEND! Oh, wait, let me define that word because faction players on this shard appear to have forgotten the meaning:

    6. to attempt to retain (a championship title, position, SIGIL, etc.), as in a competition against a challenger.

    *goes off in a minor huff*

    Comes back with one last comment.... You know you can't corrupt the sigs unless you steal them.....

    Yeah, yeah.... bad day.

    "A Letter to the True Britannians"

    We defend and secure the towns for the safty and well being of the citizens of Britannia. It is not our mission to bring war but restore peace.

    It appears our enemies have lost heart and have conceded defeat. rumors swirl that they do not even consider themselves capable capturing and defend a even single town.

    This is not a day of sadness but of great joy. We have fought in the trenches for ages against what appeared to be unending streams of vile enemies. Now those rivers have run dry and we must look beyond the daily grind of battle to the greater objectives of the war.

    The enemy factions have fled the cities; they slink around in the dark holes and the deep woods of Britannia. We are one step closer to ending this war. We have been in this position before but failed to take advantage, allowing our enemies to lick their wounds and press us again.

    Not this time!

    You have worked so hard to securel the Towns and have brought the war to this point, but as you enlist all True Britannians to defend the Castle in times of crisis, I ask that you go out of the towns to aid the deep field units that seek the enemy vermin in their dark hallows. It is time to end this war and bring a lasting peace to Felucca.

    Enemies of Britannia be on alert... We will not be waiting for you to recover your strength and move against our homes. We will be moving against yours! That knock on the door... its us. When you hear it, you better start running because we're coming in.

    Commanding Lord of the True Britannians

    Lore that was quite a rally speech... almost makes me wish I could finally figure out how to pvp...

    Nah, Lynk .... Nonel can't come out to play, he can't meet the mustache requirement ....:p.... That's somewhat of an inside joke....

    *ducks*

    HA! Ya missed me.....

    So if I go get fake mustaches, one for Nonel (I AM JUST KIDDING!) and one for myself... I can come play???

    *sulks*

    This being good is killing me!!! I have such a good one liner ... involving mustaches......

    My devoted TB friend, if you make a parry mage I will make sure you have a place on our team and I will teach you to PvP with my group.

    besides, I know lots of grannies who have staches. Just let yourself go for a month or two.

    2.0 are the TB deep field agents my post refers and if Lynk is willing teach other members of TB how to conduct proper group mage pvp then they should feel honored to train under such a highly skilled mage and team leader. I highly encourage anyone with the opportunity, to take him up on the offer.

    No, my head is not in the clouds. Yes, I know that we do not always see eye to eye but I wouldn't expect us too. The TB faction is a highly diverse group consisting of people who's playing styles and focus range from pvp, rp, huntng, questing, thieving, crafting (gasp) murder, and most likely a complex hybrid of all those, sprinkled in with ego's, feelings, grudges and competitive natures.

    However I have a plan.....

    While everyone is making parry mages, I will make a GM camper who will build a big magic bonfire in Castle Britannia courtyard. I will summon the True Britannia's with the Bell of Courage, light the branches with the Candle of Love and read aloud from the Book of Truth while we all hold hands, sing of Virtue and Britannia and become the bestest of friends.....

    OK, maybe not :) but this is my advice, "You will not always agree, and you will not always get along."

    However if you can accept these two statements and continue to work together through any issues new or old you can expect to improve at the minimum and in all likelihood become part of something truly awesome.

    That's Lore's magic campfire, you can throw on a branch or dump a bucket of water but regardless it will always have at least one branch burning.

    ROFL ... Now Lynk, that was truly funny ... alas, try as I might, I am unable to conjure up any facial hair :(

    I have mages all over this game ...and people have tried to teach me to pvp .... *stops and thinks* .... it would almost be suitable payback for all your past misbehaviors to make you try to teach me....

    Oh, speaking of all over the game.... I went looking for to see if I might have gold on Atlantic to help out a friend... I found a nearly finished archer instead. Now, tell me, how do you forget you have a character like that.... NONEL stop laughing was all your fault I found her....

    Nonel? Did you need a sweater? You said something about "cold".... :p

    Its already 10:30am and I forgot my daily self-reminder of how much I love Florida. Thank you, Watcher.

    I just have to patiently wait for winter again so I can tease you. :)

    Wow TB actually fields now? and Successfully? Awesome.

    I wish it had been a few years ago. =/. I mostly remember sights like...

    This being the idea way of pvp.


    [​IMG]

    And at when you did come out it was a bit like...

    [​IMG]

    Or when you tried to defend....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is like three other pictures from that single raid capturing different bodies, and it was only three of us. ^_^

    TB talk is enough to make someone wanna come back to the game. "Wanna", not actually do it sadly. Good Times though. I can remember TB fighting along side of many others against us. It's the way of factions.

    I am afraid that matter was resolved long ago and the "Good" Lord Casca sits upon the throne. Evidence is mounting against "our" Lord and it appears he is in league with the Shadowlords.

    Whether Casca is a willing participant in their scheme or simply a pawn under their influence remains to be seen. I have seen many good men manipulated by the evil machinations of the Shadowlords. In fact in those classic war depictions you have drawn up, all the names that appear under the banner of Britannia were destroyed by evil plots, fell into insanity, or turned to darkness with the false promises of the Shadowlords.

    What the Shadowlords are doing in Trammel is something I have witnessed everyday for the last 60 or so years [months] in Felucca.

    The Shadowlords have the ability to find any weakness in your heart and manipulate it. They will use falsehood to prey upon your fears, and feast upon your anger until you spiral so far into insanity that you can no longer recognize light from dark.

    They seem to focus their energy on the leaders, in particular the Commanding Lord. We have witnessed many good Commanders crack under the pressure to fall into a state of madness. Overtime we have learned of the Shadowlords' methods and have an Alliance Council in place to combat their magic. The Alliance Council determines the Commanding Lord and can determine when a new Commander is needed. This protects the acting Commanding Lord, the True Britannian Faction members as well as the citizens we are charged to protect. It is also why we believe Lord Casca has struggled with the absence of the Ruling Council and likely why the Shadowlords targeted and assassinated its membership. Now Casca stands alone, the sole focus of the Shadowlords dark magic’s.

    As for the war in Felucca, The True Britannians maintain control of the cities and have done so for many years. We look to eliminate the last enemy units that remain deep in the Yew Wood and in the dark dungeons where fighting remains fierce.

    May Virtue Light your way, Lanto Malint whatever world you travel, and if it does not, tred lightly should you return to ours for we will not tolerate your attempts to enslave Felucca.

    Lol, Lanto. I remember those days in Outcast. We certainly weren't that good but is was still fun. KTFF had a numerous amount of good pvpers,
    and considerably more than shown in the screenshots.

    I wish factions fielded that many pvpers now as it did then. Good fights.

    The last few times I've been out PvPing over this week there have been about 20-25 factioners fighting. Unfortunately, 20 of those were part of the SL zerg.

    I've noticed it's hard to field more people from Minax. But then again I don't play often so it may be a matter of timing. Either way the last few times I have played, I've only ran into a group of FKD running around.

    Normally I'd try to take them on, but I'm simply not that good anymore. Not that I really ever was :loser:

    Yea those were pretty fun times. Though factions were best prior to AoS.

    I've plenty more screenshots still stored on my comp. From getting caught on my own with Outkast in a 3 v 1 and surviving ^_^. To being ambushed by PwNt Archers and mages and surviving. Course I did die from time to time and I have those screenshots aswell. Though I never died one v one. Well I may have once to Bo Hunter. Me and him went back and forth that way.

    Sorry to take so long to get back to you on this Dubar.

    A few of us were told by Permafrost's father (who would sometimes play the Kleptofrost chatacter) that Perma died from a drug interaction from perscription drugs.

    I know a lot of people had mixed feelings about him but, regardless of what you thought of him, to die at such a young age is a tradgedy and our thoughts and prayes are with his family.
