    It was in town, Luna Bank. If that's Siege, you can have it Kelmo..and I didn't give him the pleasure of reporting him either time.

    *smiles* Yes. Relearn the game. Be sneaky. If you want to socialize, carry nothing. Don't take a death personally. Played right, you might make a friend. Then we can all kill wyrm later.

    Well, I hadn't been around long enough to have anything of value. It was just the way he ran around "lmao" ing. Brought back too many hideous memories of yore. But I read the sticky that said avoid Luna. I just thought it meant outside the walls.

    That was almost funny. :) I haven't given up completely. The high I was on from the nearly 40 skill pts I had gained in only 4 hours !!, helped balance out my deaths.

    I think that the ability to catch people in town and also to be safe is Siege's greatest advertisement. the first thing to realize when you come here is that you must create a thick skin to protect yourself from the inevitable cheap killing that ruins your day. learn to shake it off and realize that some day you most likely will ruin someones day as well

    Yes, just ignore Wyrm as he continues on his crusade to rid the world of blues. Normally, he can only get away with it against people who are afk, but anyone new is susceptible anytime because they are low on hit points and are not likely to be wearing the best armour.

    Just consider it a lesson and stay out of Luna for a while and don't carry anything you cannot afford to lose. If you don't have anything valuable, death in Luna is little more incovenient than a trip upstairs to the shrine. And Wyrm and Krystal are only two members of the Siege community, so don't judge everyone by their actions.

    Getting killed in Luna is no big deal. Healers right there to rez you back up. No insurance money going out of your bank, not much to lose, and if you're new someone will always re-equip you anyway.

    Adopt a more philosophical attitude to death, it no longer costs you anything as it does back on mainstream shards. :) It's merely a momentary inconvenience.

    hopefully he'll have re-thought and decided to give it another try.

    I guess you need a certain percentage of 'stubborn' in your personality to make it here.
    Heh, I got pk'd by Cheapsuit in the first 2 hours and Wrym with Krystal and another couple of VMP, as they were then, in the first 2 days, both events in guardzones. I reckon I'm at least 'adept' stubborn. :)

    To the OP, dont leave bro we chatted a few times yesterday and you seemed happy! remember one thing if you leave he wins???

    After 24 hours on Siege I am having a blast!! Last night I joined Myth/ TNT and they could not have been nicer, not to mention the most mature vent i have been in a long while!

    Also I am looking to trade with anyone who wants Atl items for Siege!!

    If I had made this statement, Kelmo would have locked this thread or removed my post. Then he would have charged my account with a 10 point Violation.

    This is just another proof that moderators are bias and people that play Siege should not moderate it.

    As for Stealth, how high does hiding have to be to get a gain in stealth? Stratics says min 50, which I have, but never gained taking a step hidden.

    If the char is human get a ninja book and use the JoaT to cast rabbit or rat form, gives a 20 stealth bonus. That will allow you go begin to get gains, or look for jewels to give you a few points to start you off, it's hard to stealth at all from 0. .

    no, many do, however there's a rule against trading for RL cash through these boards. Cybernickel is a respected and long established broker who may help you convert some of your production shard gold into Siege gold. I suggest you contact him by private message.

    from 0 - 25 skill, you will have to press the stealth button on your skill list to begin stealthing, after you've reached 25, you can just stat walking, and it will passively turn stealth on for you.

    I think the hiding requirement has been reduced to 30, to be able to begin training stealth.

    30 hiding is also the minimum required to cast the magery spell invisible, and begin stealthing.

    Start stealthing naked, then gradually wear weight requirement armor... ex:

    leather armor requires 20 strength. when you stop getting gains wearing that, move up to studded.

    ROT sucks, but it is very nice for training some skills, as once you reach 70, you can do the rest naked.

    Edit:

    80 stealth is minimum required to be able to use the "shadow strike" ability, which is very useful when you cannot break line of sight and you're out of smokebombs.

    By the way, have you considered joining the NEW guild? You will get basic equipment, a keep to train in, SOME protection from the less lawful types (but not Wyrm) and guildmates who are in the same position as you; experienced UO players but newcomers to the Siege ruleset.

    I am not being hard on you at all trust me.

    I was laughing at TNT they claim we recruit mass amount of people but yet we never even field half as many as they do... and you just started the shard in less than a 24 hour time period they have picked you up... Just kinda funny IMO.
