Legends of Siege

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Bruin, Apr 8, 2009.

  1. Bruin

    Bruin Guest

    So I was just thinking earlier today, who would you consider the most influential, powerful, important people that have played or play Siege, the Legends of Siege.

    These are who I can think of, in no particular order.

    Lothar (LOD) - (I think it's Lothar and not Gara, heh). LOD, Legion of Doom would frequently raid Wispwood. They were good pvp'ers, but whenever Lothar came around you'd always here people say "ohh &*(^ it's Lothar." Lothar made his group better, plain and simple. He was a heal mage, and he knew how to keep his teammates alive. As a group LOD were good pvp'ers, Lothar made them twice as effective. Also the fact he had a CBD blessed Hat of the Magi right after AOS came out that no one else did I'm sure helped him a little.

    Grot (CWS) - Wispwood has been a longtime staple of Siege. Grot was one of the original founders, and a rock of Wispwood. He is missed.

    Ulthrac (C8V) - Hope I'm spelling his name right. Another successful Siege guild, and he ran it. And HE RAN IT.

    Wyrm (VMP) - One of the last and better evil Roleplayers that was fun to fight against. Took his all blues must die pretty seriously.

    Pyrite (DTA) - For a long time DTA was one of the most successful and largest guilds on Siege. I think DTA overall has been the largest guild ever on Siege, and she led it.

    Py Lethius (KSS) - Respected on the field by his enemies, his friends, and the shard. Probably played the least out of the people on this list, but you can't deny his presence made Siege a different place.



    Future legends (keep going down this path and they will eventually be legends).

    Shalimar (NEW) - Not very powerful. Not very influential (because she doesn't use it). But virtually 50% of all people that have joined this land over the last several years have been touched by her in a positive way.

    Krystal (various) - The opposite of Shalimar, as much as Shalimar has touched most of the new people to this land, Krystal has touched them in another way. More murder counts than anyone in UO.

    Hoffs (GIL) - GIL currently is the largest guild on Siege, they must be doing something right. And it's because of her.


    This is what I can think of, any thoughts?

    For me there are a few names that stand out, this is down to my personal experience and what i have seen....

    Hef (LOW), seems to have the respect of most enemy faction guild members/masters and is a formidible PvPer and although lesser in number than some of the other "big hitting" guilds out there they always seem to field good solid players and work well together.

    Kat (MYTH\TnT). have seen her in action and seems well respected.

    Chad Sexington (^_^) need i say any more! i think anyone with anything of any value has been touched by chad... in more than 1 way... and was the guild master of the guild every thief wants to be in (including my first siege char who is now sadly dead) (other shout goes out to nightstalker, you the man too!)

    Roxxor .... a PK... (the letters 'ric' are missing from between those letters) every time i built up my char enough to re equip the git would either find me in a dungeon somewhere or simply combo the heck out of me in town and run of screen before i had chance to react! yet still every player going through the guild NEW (or any new player at all i should imagine) knows who he is and hates him from the first time they meet.... still a legend in his own noob killing way!

    Cash, the gentleman cash, always helping someone and always there to offer advice, he bought loads of things off me that i knew full well he didn't need but it gave me a great start on my current char


    there are others too but i am at work and my manager is looking at me funny....

    Didn't see these in earlier posts so I'll offer:

    Wulf
    Blind Otto
    Rykus
    Vampyre Xavier (he was on his way out when I started in 2004, but what an interesting person! The little time I spent with him in the game, I very much enjoyed. I believe he wrote the original Siege FAQ for Stratics too.)

    I think QZ and Gwendar are legendary in their own way, too...for years they have been kind of a shard-branded household name for crafted goods.

    As far as guilds that were icons/legends: UND, BFI (how many pairs of shoes did I lose to those idiots??), LDH.

    Hi Bruin, thought I would jump in and correct you on a few things. Lothar was not a heal mage, he was a fencer with magic. He used his warfork first and magic for Xheals and what not. But yes he was extremly effective in keeping his team mates alive as were all LoD. And Lothar never owned a hat of the Magi. That may have been Gara with the HoM. Anyways thought I would clear that up. I was Ruri of LoD btw.

    That was Gara who had the cbd blessed HoM and the orni. You guys did work very well together, almost as well as Markus C. and I did:). Damn, those were some fun times we had back then.

    Damn I get no luv:(. I co-founded CWS, Founded [email protected], Co-founded SUF, and personally spent alot of time coordinating the SUF/LoD/J-D alliance before leaving back in 2004. A dude packs it in for 4 years and is all but forgotten!

    In all seriousness, you should add AaA and bossy barn as siege legends. They created a great pvp atmosphere at the mouth of despise.

    Meph (Back in his prime days, great duelist)
    Jaster/Fruit Loops (Great mage and introduced the Hex Box to our shard lawl)
    Arden (Wtfpwnd a lot of you back in the lighting wand + lightning spam days and was one of the first to bring manual dismount to avoid bolas to this shard)

    I understand what you're going after, but this is my version due to believing this should be about PvP as well.

    I have the feeling only ex-WAKA would know the name Kerr...

    For those who don't, D is referring to our very own Yasuo Wakayama, who is also (TTBOMK) the only person to have had his name engraved somewhere on this shard, making him the only person *truly* entitled to legendary status!

    I forgot quickbeam and Plug; those guys were out pking from almost day one.
    kewl Hand luke definately should have mention here; I always tryed to take his attitude about pvp. I think his way of doing things really did influence alot of pvpers.

    What was great about thsoe days was thtere was alot more going on besides just that. That was the "headline news". there were all sorts of minor guild to guild conflicts going on outside that. We started getting orc visitors pretty early on at Wispwood clearing. I guess popping arrows into the first orc that asked me for tribute was not very diplomatic:). The politics were so much more diverse back then with all the various guilds. One other guild that has not been mentioned and should be; Xei. They were a small sqaud of blue antis who did not noto, or use guardzones, were very skilled, and one of the most honorable guilds of it's day. They were highly regarded by both friend and enemy alike.

    Well I am not an ex WAKA but I knew him better as Kerr and CiB. :)

    Still one of my fonder moments on this shard having that... *barbarian* enter Wintermoor carrying his declaration of war upon KSS and my Miranda taking aim with her lil arrows and attackin him on sight for merely carrying a declaration of war into snowy Wintermoor... course I died but we both laughed our arses off, at my Miranda attackin any one on siege, at all. :)

    Yes he should be mentioned as a legend here too and beyond. . including a great massive attack upon another shard where he had us all make newbies named Lupa The Butcher to attack everyone fel side like a swarm of newbie ants. That was hysterically fun.

    Hi Bruin,

    I am quite honored you mentionned LoD in this list.
    I do believe you are talking about Gara who owned a blessed hat of the magi.
    I had a blessed yellow feathered hat. Maybe less efficient, but lots more stylish.

    Hi to all the old Siegers still around, especially my good old friends from back then!
    ShadowSeer, Tiberius, it's always nice to see you guys here. I can't wait to join you guys back in the next good MMO.

    So! Back on topic!

    Considering the requirement to make your list is
    "influential, powerful, important".

    I have to say that to be the most influential and important (what does important mean anyways? ;), you more likely had to make a lot of politic, which back then used to be made on IRC and Battlevortex.

    From that point of view, I gotta tighten my selected few. Lots of leader from powerful guild in my opinion had a lot of influence and were important to the community.

    Kewl Hand Luke: My personal favorite. He shaped my view of Siege Perilous. "What good is humility for?" is a quote I'll never forget. Of course he had a lot of power in the NO/PRO alliance

    Demoyn: Definitly one of the big mouth of Siege. Praised for his team work and his honor, his small pvp group were solid. However a clash affeceted his credibility when people found out that he had secretly created "twink" character to join guilds like ATF was a very comical moment.

    Omid: Proof that sometime, action would speak louder than words, I've never seen Omid as the biggest board fighter. However his action on the field did speak loud as he would pretty much never back down from a fight. Another form of "Influence" it is.

    ???? (UDL): I forgot his name. And I'm highly surprised I did. Before artifacts was a time that where glacial staff and healing wands were very destructive, but rarely used. This guy had them constantly. Most of the people considered the usage of these items "dishonorable". But fact is that for being on both side of the fence, no one really wanted to fight this guy one on one. Siding along was a better option.

    The next following names I'm giving are not "Legends" in my opinion because they were powerful, but their influence was notable. I want to take the time to name them since we've already seen lots of "Top pvper" list, but this "influecial" criterion is very interesting. So here it is:

    Grot: Raiding CWS, especially by the end of my Siege career was one of my most fun moments. The few months before I've quit, the game pvp was getting horrible: pvp being mostly around guardzone, cutting the fun factor a lot. The Shire was my last true "fun" heaven of Siege. Grot was behind this, and whenever he was around, my raids on the shire were more fastidious and complicated.

    Corwin: When I truly took part of Siege PvP politics, Corwin was one of the rare big mouth of BattleVortex still to debate and fight about everything. Our playstyle were very different, but were our vision so different? Was it just fun and ego that we had endless BV fight? Good question.

    Wolf: Hated by most hardcore Pvpers of Siege, Wolf couldn't have an impact on BattleVortex anymore since he was banned. (A ban he deserved for very controversial comment). However as funny as it may sound, the fact he was SO twink and such an opportunist on the battlefield made people remember his name. I'm pushing his name on this list a little much.. since I'm really not sure he deserve being called a "Legend". But I get he did get some major fame for his playstyle. So here is Wolf.


    This list is imcomplete, I will try to update it from time to time.

    I could take Paul back in the day:). He was good and would help Bloodbane and I back when we were UND; he joined up right after we both departed for UDL.

    Hiya Lothar! The UDL guy was Mark although some of us would occasionally use that stuff, he never left home without his glacial and mana suit. He was not quite as imposing a threat without his glacials.

    Yah, it was defiantly Mark that decked out in glacials. He could be found at the UDL tower West of Safe Haven above the swamps alot.

    I remember some good fights with You and Bloodbaine as well. I think it was me and Bluebeard (Savage) that fought you guys around UND/ORC area alot.

    tons more to name. It may seem like a lot of names for one shard to be legends, but the people who played on/play on siege were always extraordinary people so naturally you will have a lot of names

    And I'm wondering why Forsaken hasn't been named yet either.

    Being the undisputed #1 PvPer on Siege for now 4 years strong... I dunno, figured that was an accomplishment.
