Fun theft last night

    So, first off leme say that i will post some pictures up tonight. I am at work at the moment and my wife was gettin pissy last night as this was happening so i ran outa time (didnt even get to fully sort my loot yet!)

    So last night i was roamin around luna, lookin for an opportunity to use my newly acquired legendary stealing skill. I am makin my rounds, checkin vendors (and shoppers) when i see a red gate open. Soulweaver storms through (and i knew he was cleanin house from his stratics posts) so i follow, just to check it out. I end up on the Isle of Love (Tokuno island with 2 houses used for this years valentines event (Siege). I notice that the house soulweaver is in in worn. !!! awesome. i stealth to the other end of the island to mark a rune, and as i walk back to wait for someone to exit (hehe), i notice the house has been dropped (!!!) and that there are a few of the usual IDOC crowd is now here rummaging. i stealth around and pick up as much **** as i can without being bumped into. i load up, gate home, drop everything off, and come back. i load up for second time, drop off the goods behind a tree, and start snooping everyone. from the looks of it, i got most of the good stuff on my initial run, so i decide not to break my cover and wait around to see if he returns to drop the second house. while i wait, people start leavin. eventualy, its just me and Native American, and his little horse minion left on the island, and he hasnt moved for a few mins. hmmmm, *throws test shuriken*... *no DP*... damn! hmmm he still isnt moving... awesome. i start ebolting him... but i have no eval and its just a pathetic display. also, i realize i am out of shurikens! EVERY TIME! UGH! then i remember seeing an old crappy gnarled staff in one of the chests... yeeesssss. i equip the staff, go into snake form, and proceed to beat and poison him to death, then his horde minion (who was carrying some blessed items haha). i loot from him a full imbued lrc suit, some regs, a couple chests of idoc junk, from the horde minion i get a blessd stuffy dwagon (what? lol), 16k silver, and a bunch of other idoc junk. like i said, i havent gotten to fully sort through everything, but as of right now my nice loots from this event are: someones dagger [blessed] (been lookin for one of these!), a cloak of corruption, 16k silver, lots of lrcs armor, invis clothing, and some faction gear.
    oh, and the chance to kill and loot another afk MD member haha, love it. It may not be a 100mil painting, but it was alot of fun!

    *sidenote* i think this guy might have been the only guy to ever be killed by a gnarled staff hahaha

    (ill post some pics later tonight)

    congrats; that was a good story to go with it, too

    *note* remember that if you can e-bolt, you can mind blast, and if I'm not mistaken, mindblast is based upon your magery skill, not your eval

    Just when my boredom is getting the best of me, a nice shiny red moongate pops up nearby, and out jumps Soulweaver (whom I knew was leaving UO soon and stocking up a vendor)… better check this out!

    I hope through the gate and find myself on the Isle of Love (used to host this year’s Valentines day events).

    Soulweaver comes back through the gate, but runs into his house and disappears from view

    Interesting… only two houses on this island… and both are decaying… sweet! I better go mark a rune.

    I run over to the opposite side of the island, mark a rune, and stealth back to the house.

    [​IMG]

    !!! BUT WHATS THIS! IN THE TIME IT TOOK ME TO MARK A RUNE, THE HOUSE HAS BEEN DROPPED AND THE LOOTING ALREADY BEGAN!?!?! HOW? IT WAS ONLY SLIGHTLY WORN! HE MUST HAVE DROPPED IT FOR HIS FRIENDS! ****! LOOT!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    No one knows I’m here, so I stealth around and scoop up as much as I can. I even had time to go back to opposite side of the island, gate home, drop off the first round of loot, return and fill my pockets for a second time.

    Slowly, the loot begins getting obviously crappier and crappier, and the people begin to gate out…

    One by one, until… nothing.

    Nothing but me, hidden, and NaTiVe AmErIcAn… unmoving for the last few minutes, with a backpack and a horde minion full to the brim… *looks around* excellent!

    Hmmm, is he really asleep? Or is this some sort of ploy to get me to show so I can get ganked… Hmmm, maybe they did know I was here after all… hmmmm, decisions decisions…

    Welp, Im losin daylight here. Now or never! *Chucks shuriken and Native* *Shuriken DP FAIL* ugh!

    *hides and watches for signs of life*

    Nothing… eeehhhhhxxxxxccceeellleeennnttt

    Hmm, Im now out of shuriken (this ALWAYS happens!!), and I didn’t bring along my kryss…

    Ah HA! Im wearing LRC! Ill just Ebolt him to death! *ebolt* 9 damage!?!? WTF!

    *ebolt* *ebolt* *out of mana*

    ****! This guy regens life faster than I can damage!

    Hmmm this is a **** situation, and it somehow seems all too familiar…

    [​IMG]

    *DING!*

    Haha, got you now ****er!

    *grabs the mage weapon gnarled staff I saw in one of these loot crates earlier*

    [​IMG]

    Haha, nothing worse than death by Item ID staff!

    *snake form*

    *YOU ARE ATTACKING NATIVE AMERICAN*

    [​IMG]

    *smack smack smack*

    [​IMG]

    Dead…

    *eyeballs cowering horde minion*

    Your mine now you little ****er (carrying some blessed items… woohoo)

    [​IMG]

    *smack smack smack*

    [​IMG]

    Dead…

    I loot everything I possibly can carry (and then some) and head for the hills. I don’t wanna be around when the cavalry arrives!

    After sorting through the loot, the items that I deemed to be the best loot were:
    Robe of the Equinox
    Someones Dagger (blessed)
    Whispering Rose
    AoS Black Rose
    Cloak of Corruption
    Some Invis clothing
    About 6 Amulets of Righteousness (I have no idea what they do, but if you double click them and then target yourself, lightning bolt with no damage… pretty sweet!)
    2 Full Spellweaving Books
    TONS of LRC and MR2 armor
    And a gnarled staff soaked in the blood of a Scrub!

    Success!

    I may not have been able to showcase my new Legendary Stealing skill (no one had anything good enough to make me break my cover!), I may not have looted a 100 mil artie, but you know what? **** you! MY LOOTZ!!!!

    Certainly paragraphs are for noobs but...she distinctly said "pharagraphs" which, as everyone knows, are WAAAAY more serious and non-noobish. :mf_prop:
     
  7. First of all, epic 'calling-someone-out' fail!

    Second, Crux, nice story/steal. I liked the old school touch of actually having screenshots and a running narrative. Plus, it was cool that you stole outside of a house, unlike some other people around here. ;]

    Don't worry, all of my steals have been outside of my house. ; )

    Plus, I've hit the 1 billion mark. Can't complain.

    lol damn. start sellin that **** off man, make some RL green.

    the only problem im havin on siege is that i dont really have anything to spend my money on. everything i need i've either stolen, looted, or already bought. I guess its not a horrible problem to have, but that **** burns a hole in my soul until i can spend it haha.

    Green, thanks for the comment man. I had a blast on this story. i just happened to stumble into the right moongate at the right time. luckily i remembered to take some screenies haha.

    if yall liked this, there are alot more on UOTHIEF.com . I wish other people would start writing the narratives again, i love reading em and getting new ideas.

    Very true, instead I just invest in high end items, rares, etc....yields a higher rate of return. = ) Plus it takes a lot less room than 1,000 million checks in a storage house...lol.

    haha, the high rate of return will crash suddenly whenever they announce that UO is shutting down. sell it while people are still buyin! haha
