    I am interested in joining SP because I'm growing tired of the monotony. However, I don't really want to take forever to make a new character template/skills. Therefore, is there some sort of template I could make quickly using skills like focus/med/etc. that raise quickly? Thanks.

    Well, I guess I was kind of hoping to make a template that didn't require equipment... er, if possible. Yeah, I'm not crazy about losing all my armor when dying so I was wondering if there was a template for meee... a guy who is going from a production shard to a scary shard but doesn't want to worry about losing his suit each time he dies. Thanks ^_^

    Not everyone dry loots you. I'm a thief that mostly ooOoo's and sometimes steals. And mostly I'm PK'ed but not looted. So how about ninja thief hiding stealther wrestler Mage. Disarms steal fireball maybe instead of wrestling a weapon skill and support skills to deathstrike? And go naked stealther. With animal form for running away! There is so much freedom on Siege once you realize your not depndant so much on armor because you only have junk armor to lose!

    Yeah and really on Siege it is a good idea not to get too attached to your stuff. Unless you run around in maxed out suits most of it is cheap to replace anyway. I mean there is a guy that sells basic lrc suits for under 12k I think at yewgate and otherwise you can find cheap non lrc basic leather suits for just a few thousand. So if you donlt care about all 70s in resist and a bunch of other mods it is super easy and cheap to requip here.

    Not a good shard for the lazy or the honorable. At least right now there is a guild that is pigging out on everything in the game, stalking people and launching personal attacks consistently. Best not to bother setting up a home until they learn to play reasonably. At this point I don't think any newbie characters have a chance.

    Let ye be forewarned.

    Naw, there are a couple of clowns, but they are kinda of dim and easy to handle. Good for a few laughs. You will get PKed here but most of the PKs are cool about it. Good thing about Siege is you dont need mega bucks to gear up. People dont usually run suits that are too expensive. Most try to find that happy point between cost vs. effectiveness.

    I am an honorable newb (relatively) and have done pretty well here. You just have to not let people get to you. The smack talkers here are really poor at it though, so its not hard. Ive seen better chat PvP on a political forum.

    Yeh.. Look out.. People like to cry in general chat alot over nothing and pretend they know everything.


    I suggest buying stock in Kleenex before attending Siege, as all people do in Gen Chat is whine and cry. Maybe avoid it all together? People just look to whine about anything and especially when they die and lose their items.

    Just don't invest too much time or gold into things here... the gaggle of seafaring types (eyes Rumpy) are disorganized and childish. It'll probably be better once they turn on each other and fizzle out, which should be soon.

    Yeah lol..what I find amusing is how he leaves out how they start the trash talk much of the time..and even go on and on and on long after we have stopped saying anything to them..

    I should also note that we have helped many new players. I know I personally have helped and been kind to many new people. I am nice to people in general. However if you trash my guildmates or my guild in general chat yes I will say something. Or are we supposed to shut up be quiet? Other then maybe a bit of rib jabbing I donlt really participate in trash talk though.

    Perhaps they use more self control when you are around Kiasa. I know a few arrr are now Zyn haters, and thats fine. I fully expected it. But any and all grief that they recieved today was intiated by them and not once by me; unless you count merely playing a thief provocation. This is Siege, if you are going to dish it out, learn to take it. Funny how I am the newb yet I keep finding myself having to remind a couple of them of this paramount fact. I hold no ill will towards anyone who was hating on me, I really had a great time today. But I will always make sport of them when they say dumbass stuff in chat. No hard feelings intended. ;)

    Siege isn't that scary...just pick your spots. Run with throw-away horned or barbed gear/jewelry and if you get toasted just buy some more. Get a good weapon from somebody based upon what template is and bless it. You can get mad gains in places like the Jhelom cemetary at lower skills and make some decent GP and also get some loot.

    Good luck and good hunting.

    Oh I wasn;t singling you out Zyn certain other people or a person really though yes lol. I usually miss some of that drama but I usually give my guildmates the benefit of the doubt on that stuff. After all what kind of guildie would I be if I took nonguilded peoples side *without any hard evidence* on things?. But some people seem to think I should throw my guildmates under the bus just because they have a problem with them...*shrugs* Yeah I try not to have hard feelings either but it can be hard when get slammed in general chat and then accused of things that are very untrue. Though looking back I am finding it all kind of amusing like really? seriously? lol :rolleyes: I guess as long as I know the truth about myself its all ok.

    I know you were not singling me out per say. Lots of smack in chat lately and today it just came to a head for some people. Some arrr folks said some things that made it quite clear they were very upset with me. Its cool. I am sure they will cool off.

    No shame in supporting your crew. I actually like many of arrr. Bo has been extremely knowledgable and helpful. Although maybe when he gets back he will hate on me too. Would be unfortunate, but understandable.

    I don't know what goes on at the moment, but someone need to grow up and spamming the General Chat with trash talk. Special Jamie need to get his coolness back, because right now, he sounds like 12 years old. It's sad as I know he can do better.

    Well, Hoffs is not the GM of GIL, I am, so get your facts straight before spouting off. What's your agenda Puck? If you've a problem with someone in Gilfane, then let me know.

    Goodguy 2.0 ?

    Just remember giving an attention seeker attention means you are desperate for their attention, a symbiotic relationship. Surely it's better to be an attention seeker over another seekers gratification :)

    I agree Jamie probably does need to cool down Freja however just so you know last night and in previous night he hasn;t been the only one trash talking. We have said nothing in general chat or at least nothing bad then people will start trashing us. So just so you know Freja it isn;t just Jamie doing the smack talk it is several other people too. And if people come out and start bashing our guild and what not of course we are going to retailiate!

    What I don't get, is this guy says I am "whining and crying".. Yet.. I haven't said hardly anything remotely close to complaining or even had any negative actions done to me in the past week. I haven't died, I haven't been looted, stolen from, or anything. I have no idea what hes talking about considering I never died, I got a bunch of loot, and I got the best stuff from the IDOC. He is another GoodCry who just runs their mouth all the time, but does nothing about it.

    I think its funny everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon to bash me.

    Zyn - You literally can't speak anything to me. You don't PvP, you never stolen from me, and you have nothing on me.. You keep saying I'm "crying", but you must be delusional and are just someone looking to talk smack and go nowhere with it since you play a useless character.

    Frivilous Axe - Your little attempt here, is a complete failure. Your opinions don't matter to anyone and your name was never seen in Gen Chat till last week.

    Freja - I was nice, but with all the people crying about dieing and I only kill "Easy or New People" and not "PvPers", is just ridiculous. PKs kill everyone. Especially people whinning over the event robes. Its not my fault they died and left their robes on the ground, I enjoyed the 30 mil I made off everyone elses sorrows. I was nice to people, I wasn't a ****. But when I started to login to UO or the Forums and see people trashing my name, well why should I bother being nice? People who I have never even seen in game were running their mouths. People who had no reason to were as well. So for now on, I just don't care. IF they are NEW2, its the dry loot for them too as well considering some of your NEW2 members, aren't very new and seem to like breaking the rules.

    IanJames - You need to reevaluate your leadership roll in GIL. Everyone believes Hoffs is the GM. Thats what everyone portrays. An until I see otherwise, I'm going to say he is as well. Looks like your guild got swiped from you under your own feet.



    Regardless - Alot of people have come to hate me. Some for no other reason then to jump the bandwagon (Zyn). Others, because I killed them and looted them. Hell, people hate me because I booted someone from the guild cause I was asked to by the GM. (BTW - I am not the GM of Arrr). An some people hate me because they claim all I do is kill "Easy and New" people and not PvPers. Last I checked, people don't evaluate their PvP skills before killing someone. Siege years ago was a killfest. You didn't care if people could PvP or not. IF your going to play a server with an all FEL Facet and be against PvP or not want to PvP, then Siege is not for you. Everyone has to learn to survive, this is not trammel. I will continue to kill everyone I see, I will also continue to dry loot everyone I see as well. I am choosing to dry loot as people bitched when I killed them and took 1 item or even if I just killed them. So now, I will give them something to really cry about. An I am sure if I die, people will Dryloot me regardless because I am a PK and they want my gear. So why would I give someone the courtesy that I will never be shown?

    As far as the talking in GC, people have shown their true colors. If you think I care what you say in GC about me, your horribly mistaken. We all sit back and laugh at everyone. Its hilarious how easy it is to still get under people's skin. All it takes is a keyboard and an opinion. An I love every moment of it. Some of you people choose to play female characters and prefer to be recognized AS FEMALE Characters in game (Hoffs and others), yet you are a male in real life but you are "roleplaying". I'm just roleplaying the ******* guys, why all the hate?

    End Discussion. I look forward to the "We hate Jamie Fix" trash talk hours in General Chat and cutting up/unraveling your pathetic suits. Thanks in advance !!

    I think, when someone say you are crying, they don't mean when killed but more like "All is bad to me, all hate me, all is blaming me" crying :p
    I don't hate you, have no reason for it.
    Yes there had been one or two old Siege players on new char in NEW2. I don't think I have any right now who do show the tag.
    I have one returning player, 2 graduated, who are not ready to fly (to little playtime) and 2 big brothers who can joun new players but don't want to be leaders. None of this 5 are allowed to show the [NEW2] tag, they are however allowed to show the sub title, so you can see what they are doing in NEW2. They are not protected of the tag and can be killed just like the leaders.
    If there are other old Siege players, I do not know about them.

    I agree this started off as a nice calm thread trying to help a new person then bam someone had to trash talk then it all went down hill.
    To the OP I hope you do still decide to try Siege many new people come here and do just fine.

    I agree to that, so I added this new rules to help returning and slow growing players to hang out with new members. When they do not feel alone and get help understanding all the changes sinse they last played, it will help them to stay and find a real guild. They can also help the youngest at hunts or if they dye to monsters.
    We have 29 young at the moment, not counting the ones not showing tag.

    And there is that same giant Diatribe yet again, trying to convince everyone you dont care. You must have hit your diatribe macro 10 times yesterday. You're trying too hard Jamie and it shows :). Thou doth protest too much!

    I know its hard for you to get the concept that there are "other people" in the world, but surprise! surprise! I wasn't speaking of you. The hate I was refering to was coming from Garth and Parium. But I'm not surprised you tried to make it all about you. Yes Jamie, we see you. You can relax and feel safe. Although again I need to remind you, this is Siege, you need a thicker skin dude.

    Revvo, I can guarantee you the only one who was gratified in that little exchange yesterday was me. Jamie got so upset he had to resort to spamming the same phrase over and over in a macro. I am surprised he didn't go all caps, lol. And the others, well they got VERY nasty, like downright hateful. It was a riot. I forgive them all though, it is just a game after all. People sometimes get emotional and I have a way of getting under peoples skin sometimes. If they get gratification from my attention, thats fine with me. I dont poke fun at chat trolls for their sake or to "teach them a lesson". I do it for my own enjoyment. Maybe thats why they were so rabid? They are used to ppl getting angry and emotional, not using them for sport and having a good time at their expense.

    To "them" I say what I found myself saying all day yesterday: This is Siege, get over it.

    This "bickering" is the kind of thing that keeps Siege going. It's been a staple of Siege's forums for years. Forum PvP is just as important to this shard as ingame PvP, actually. It's when "bickering" becomes personal that mods should intervene. I haven't seen anything in this thread against the RoC, has anyone else?

    So is Siege now a cool "bickering" shard? Is this Stratics Siege board all about lame ass bickering? Do you think we are now the cool kids on the block? Inquiring minds wanna know!

    I read most of what happened in general chat yesterday and you may be saying different things while Rumpy was spamming the same sentence but ultimately it's the same thing, two people feeding off of each others attention. Basically all you seem to be saying is your attention seeking was more articulate and justified, but guess what it's the same thing and you are doing it all again here. I do hope you stay though as Siege deserves a better class of complainer than we seem to have currently :)

    LOL, touche' Revvo. Yes, you are right. I do feel more justified in picking on someone who is picking on someone else. I never pick on nice folks or anyone who maintains their cool. I feel there is a difference there, while you do not. To each his own. There are anti-PKs, why not anti-trolls? Although the point may be moot either way, as chat is infinitely more calm today and I am reactive, not proactive.

    Nothings been swiped from under my feet Rumpy. Hoffs started the guild long ago, the hands of leadership have changed from time to time. On paper, I'm the GM. I've tried to hand it back to Hoffs a few times. Gilfane is not run by a single person, but by a tight leadership group of which Hoffs is part of. But, Hoffs is not the end of the line where the leadership is concerned. Hoffs is however a senior guild leader and highly respected by the guild and when I'm not around, which is often lately while I'm studying for exams, he's one of several of the go to guys for the group. We do have an extensive chain of command and decision making process which is outlined in detail on our web site.

    Regardless, I'm just trying to figure out why Puck was slandering the guild without any information to back it up, and if he's had some sort of negative run in with anyone in Gilfane, I'd like to know about it.

    There is nothing extensive about GIL anymore! Even you silly little website has outdated maps of what structures are still around. You are one or two people strong if that at any one time, and I'll put Rumpy's reputation on the line that he could PK your whole guild in one swing. (like how I threw them in there?) heck I'll put bounty out on all GIL...what's your value to me? 5k for each GIL killed and dry looted plus another 2k for a grief Rex kill (just one) and screen pics on here to prove it. For one week starting Now! Hoff is worth 20k to me and I want his gear to prove it! Cheers! Happy hunting

    You or anyone else probably could PK most of GIL. We are PVMers and Crafters. Put any bounty you like. *shrugs*. I'm not sure why you're so fired up.

    And... 20k is chump change. If you're going to offer a bounty, put your money where your mouth is.

    Oh, and now that I know who you actually are, Puck, I understand why you're so bent out of shape.

    Heh, yeah my wireless keyboard wasn't working that day and GIL took advantage of me. And I am putting my money where my mouth is. The price I put is the price I value your valueless little pixels life's at. =)
