    That's awesome! I wonder if there is a way for players to disable them.

    Don't fall for it Sherry!

    Think this has something to do with Sherry not being such a strong supporter of the new king, Casca?

    I am hoping it's not just Pacific. Even on the shards where Sherry is less opposing Casca than merely being suspicious, it would make sense.

    The following items seem to be common to all shards:

    • Casca is consolidating power in his own hands (and Sherry is competition at best, a potential source of opposition at worst);
    • Sherry either sprung Ricardo and Avery, or at the very least has cultivated a line of communication to them in their imprisonment.

    Either way, the mousetraps would make RP sense on any of the shards.

    Especially if Casca proves to be a villain. Maybe even if he's not, but especially if he is.

  17. Hm.

    You know, ol' Billy Shakespeare comes to mind here.

    Casca was one of the conspirators who killed Julius Caesar. In fact, he was the psycho of the group and the first to stab Jules.

    The Mousetrap was the play that Hamlet put up for his unk when he wanted to send the message that he knew what he was up to.

    I don't want any harm to come to Sherry or any little rodents, but darn those mouse traps are cute! I want some on Lake Austin!

    Sherry did not attend the Casca event on Lake Austin. I wil have to try to attend events on other shards if times are reasonable for me. Sounds like you are really getting involved role playing and having a lot of fun.

    Safe journeys!

    I'd be shocked if Sherry were stupid enough to fall for a mousetrap anyway.
     
  21. maybe tame a rat and see if that will set the trap off?

    can the traps be busted up like you do with crates?

    Just read what players from different shards post about their events and draw your own conclusions.

    I didnt see any boxes last night on LS but I did see a Glue Trap in the Counselor's Guild Hall. I'm not happy. Not at all. I think I'll throw an oil cloth over it.

    Which shard has the best players?

    How do you just what is "best"?
    Personally, I think the Europa EMs are pretty damn awesome, but I'm sure folk feel the same about their own shard's EMs.

    I now see that I didn't phrase that very well. It might have been better if I had asked which shards have the most active or involved EMs.

    I think the special decorations the EMs add to the shards are really neat and help show they are really interested in the shard and its players.

    From an out-of-character storyline perspective, definitely so.

    Very subtle, shows a very logical, direct mind.

    LOL, I thought the mouse trap was just some sorta way to poison me. Player dropped.

    Course I fell for it and had to open it :)

    Uh Oh!!!! Watch out Sherry the Mouse! Ferrets are not good around mice! Me thinks that perhaps Casca has decided to use ferrets to try to kill Sherry, that and the traps!

    This is from Encyclopedia.com:

    Too bad we don't have Prairie Dogs in game to tame, since also per Encyclopedia.com:

    If there were Prairie Dogs in game we could tame a ton of them and release them in Blackthorne's Castle to distract the ferrets that Casca may have roaming around looking for poor poor Sherry! Maybe we should try to fill the Castle up with rabbits and name them "Ferret Bait" Could buy Sherry some time, lol at worst case maybe the EM's would get a laugh out of it!

    Ok, to explain away the ferret conspiracy theory. I was there yesterday when Autolycus or Quantum placed it (they look the same, i can never remember which is which). Its for one of the players on LS who was in ferret form the entire meeting, has nothing to do with Sherry.

    I noticed the cheese scented glue traps tonight.

    Our new king has much to learn. I doubt such a well educated and intelligent rodent will be caught in that manner.

    But, then again, the only rodent I've smelled recently, is the one calling himself king.

    Conversely... a Casca supporter COULD try to get the EM's LMAO if at the next planned event/speech they each had as many ferrets as you can all named Mouse Hunter, or Sherry Hunter lol. Ferrets are ingame for those who want to try this out... could make for a good laugh all the same! Heck I may even do something like this as I am pretty bored lol.rolleyes:

    Why do you all assume it's Casca that did this?
    It could just as easily be someone doing this, knowing that Casca would be suspected, therefore making him look bad.

    They were added all throughout the shard around the time Sherry was reintroduced as well as when we had the rat invasion that dropped the coins. You can go into either slime or rat form and teleport through them. They were in Castle Britain and that was it the last time I checked.

    They also were a reward, either vet or a turn in at one point too I think.

    I'd like to report that Sherry will be safe on Legends..... we have eaten all the poisoned cheese and Aavie scattered food about for her so that she won't even be tempted by the traps

    The captains of the guards told us they were going to put down "rat traps" on Oceania - so it might not be Casca's fault!

    Casca is obviously a Rat. Lets pick them up and put the traps in his shoes, or in his bed.
