    *slips in to the tavern and starts the fire*

    Warming up again, mid 20's today. Woohoo!

    *makes his way to the counter and starts the hot water and coffee*

    Good luck out there everyone.

    *kicks the door open and backs in dragging a large ettin corpse by the massive foot*
    Killed damn hear a hundred of these ugly things last night. Got myself just one gem of salvation. I think I might be doing something wrong.

    *drops the furry leg and makes a cup of tea*
    Help yourself, the ribs are nice and plump. Also I think there might be a bit of gold on the corpse if anyone is interested. I've got plenty more stacked up at home too.

    Its a handy little rock that you get from stealing from monsters. If you die with it in your pack you can self rez. Only trouble is you have to go loot your corpse and you only have a minimum of health upon resurrection. But still, its better than trying to hunt down one of those wandering healers.

    That sounds very useful. And you can steal from any monster to get it?

    Ettins? whatcha doing messin' about with silly ettins? Have ye not heard of the 'two birds with one stone' method of hunting?
    Gargoyles in Hythloth, if you don't get a 'special', you might get a gem or 3 for imbuing. They have 1 - 4 gems, and if you're lucky enough to steal the gems from a gargoyle that has 4, he'll give ya another 4 as parting gift in his corpse. On the other hand, I guess gems are cheap and easy to come by on Catskills.

    Those pesky jewelers have taken millions from me on their crack...I mean gems. Your gargoyle suggestion is very sound, thank you for that.

    Can I offer you a spot of tea?

    Only monsters in fel dungeons or in tram, but then only in champ spawn areas.
    ((http://uo.stratics.com/php-bin/show_content.php?content=29880))

    Gems are easy to find, but not always cheap. I chose ettins because, to be perfectly honest, my thief is a pathetic fighter. Ettins and the occasional earth elemental were good for skill gains and posed just enough threat where I felt comfortable enough that I wouldn't get easily overwhelmed.

    Never fear to ask that! We always have a selection of morning pastries available. Occasionally a hot breakfast is served, depending on if Claudia or woody is here in time.

    Clever girl. See, my thief (being male like me) is a bit thick headed at times and tends to charge into a situation without thinking of all the possible outcomes. ((See my post in UHall for a good example))

    Oh I've seen that my friend, seen it and giggled :). I follow the boards through this link:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/vaispy.php
    (found at the bottom of the 'quick links' menu at the top of the board for anyone who's interested).
    It means I don't miss very much :D

    You need a history lesson :D. The 'Western Front' was a line of trenches stretching over 400 miles from the Swiss border to the North Sea during World War I

    Petra, I love history...always up for a lesson or two.

    I've got one. Trouble is she has no interest in UO goodies. She expects real flowers and chocolates, plus dinner to boot!

    I wish I could buy her off with a whispering rose, a red studded bustier, and a slice of blessed bacon. If only it were that easy....

    All I have to add is:

    *feels very fortunate the wifey doesn't like flowers as she feels they are a waste of money*

    I never minded buying flowers of course, this just makes it easier.

    oh the memories.
    When I gave birth to our first son my husband brought to the hospital a lovely bouquet of carnations, my favourite flower.
    When I gave birth to our second son my husband brought roses


    and my sister-in-law and he sat by the bed and ate them all: These roses

    Oh, and I see Petra is hanging out here now. No wonder the babble-thread over in the Europa forum is so quiet.

    Hi John! New daily thread made and a cup of tea waiting for you. It is not my intention to pull Petra away, I'll be sure and continue to participate in your babel thread.

    P.S. We sometimes get on here late John so never refrain from creating a new daily thread. There are no "requirements" to starting it!
