Peasant, beggars, potato farmers...TO ME! Tonight, we raze Luna!

    Luna, where almost every coin of gold is held by the rich and powerful few! Who charge outlandish prices that only they can afford, and have hold of the rest of us by the grapes!
    We shall cast them down, burn Luna to the ground!

    "How many we got, sergeant?"

    "Not many, m'lord. Everyone left for greener pastures. By Hades, even the merchants in Luna are dwindling away."

    "Peasants and beggars, to the potato farms!"

    (And may the gods have mercy on UO)

    Edit: Many thanks to the Lunite Crysta for pointing out a flaw in my plan. :drool:

    According to the worth poll, the poor are the few.

    He is saying to hire beggars and take them to the fields. I think he wants cheap labor to grow potatos?

    Have you ever bent knee and picked potatoes, my friend? We are few, but we are proud.

    I think he's trying to tell us it's time for the Good Humor man to come and take him to the funny room with the mattresses on the walls.

    Think the word he was looking for was "raze"...

    Yeah, the goofy poll says one thing, but it got voted on by maybe,1/8th of 1% of UO's population, so, it basically doesn't say much.

    Also note, what % of the voters are blowing hot air too?? I don't know any of you, and really can't trust what you type.(no, I didn't vote....won't lower my standards to do so)

    gnaw on them potatos......

    Are you, sort of, slapping my face with this comment? It was my poll, and your comment to gnaw on "them potatoes" says so. But whatever, it doesn't matter, just a curious thing as to why.

    But that poll does show something. It shows that the percentage of Stratics posters are heavily weighted to the powergamers, as some other posters have pointed out.
    This assumes, of course, that:
    A) Pollsters are mainly being somewhat honest
    B) There are in fact a lot of players who don't post here at Stratics.
    (Both reasonable assumptions)

    And that does tell us something important.
    That, in fact (and as you said), these polls and posts here at Stratics are meaningless in relationship to the overall player base. Not because of the low percentage of players posting here, but because of the very much unbalanced representation, heavily in favor of powergamers.

    And what that means is that everything here has a very heavy bent in that direction, and the Devs should hopefully be aware of that when making decisions.

    Trebr, dear, I'm afraid I can't make it due to the extremely short notice. I have stables to clean tonight. The hired hand....

    Oh wait. I was going to say my hired hand seems to have disappeared. But then I realized I have no hired hand and never have. I'm afraid I must have dreamed him. Rats. And he was such a good looking thing too.

    Ah well. Take care lighting things up around those potion sellers now, ye hear? Perhaps I can join ye and your fellow rabble rousers another time.

    Yes, yes. The potatoes have eyes. But my corn has ears!
