    Thank the UO gods and general jurisprudence that someone with a bit of sense has arrived.…

    Having said that, I will also welcome Ori!!!!...(hehe love ya dear)...Bring Sara along just for the fun....I might just go that much further out of my way to get back to causing trouble so you all have something legit to write and moderate about :)

    Because for some reason people don't seem to believe my stratics mood....not sure why...

    Welcome to Origin Oriana, I hope you brought your whip. Sometimes this bunch has to be put back in its cage from time to time. We love our shard and we can be passionate about it. But crack your whip and we will fall in line. LOL

    Passion is what drives this game. *Cracks Whip* Only reason no one nows how passionate I am some of the time is because as a mod...well....i have to be a good girl. Now if you could only hear me cuss and fuss at the monitor...you'd probably lock me up for yelling at an inanamate object.

    But I'm not looking for 'em.

    Speaking of little...where do you people hang out? I've had a character on wandering a bit but not seen very many people. Now granted haven't been everywhere yet, and my poor lil newb doesn't get around fast, but still....WHERE ARE YOU GUYS HIDING?

    Ori
     
  17. Oh we dont hide! The only person that does that is Ghost Writer...you never know where he will be!

    Actaully, I believe most people on the shard when they are logged in are out hunting, fighting, or gathering resources. I dont see alot of bank sitting going on unless there is a good disagreement brewing at the bank...lol

    Just stop anyone along your journeys and say "Hey, I want to go do a Mel", I promise you people will appear from no where to go along! :D

    About the only time you'd see me in a public area was cause I was considering how fun it was to watch that blue hued fellow fall, and thinking how fun it will be to do it again soon. Won't be moving much...and I probably wont respond ;)

    Or I might be reading some silly forum related to uo...cant remember the name of it...starts with an 'S'...hehe

    Programs such as icq, vent (teamspeak to you lame people) and even guild/ally chat are extremely useful, and in most cases, a requirement. Problem is it has had the effect of bringing guilds and cliques together, while killing the general community communication.

    A lot of us have macros set up on our general keys, so makes the archaic practice of 'typing' to another very annoying (or deadly {*all kill*, *target self*})...unless you enable CAPS LOCK and hold down shift while typing...a concept over most peoples heads...

    As a reporter I would suggest being given access to any particular guilds voice program, and maybe even be guilded for an event, or battle. I'm sure you would find it quite interesting, and would certainly give a new and in depth view of the goings ons.

    I've had zero internet for 5-6 days, so I wasn't around! I do hunt a lot, stock my vendors and shop - shopping is awesome. =) I'm sure you'll see me around sometime!

    If you had no skill higher than 65, wore no armor, carried no weapons, and didn't have enough magery to cast Mark without a scroll; and spent most of your time in Fel; You'd hide too!

    Seriously, I haven't really played much since the release of KR. I've just gotten back into it a few weeks ago. I was a 3d player and really have a hard time with 2d. I'm still working on re-writing 8 characters worth of macros and re-organizing 3 houses of storage because without my re-sizable containers from 3d, I can't find anything.

    I alpha tested KR and really had a lot of hope for it, but since certain things just don't work in KR, (Like the ladders in my houses!) I'm forced to use 2d. And I'll be damned if I'm going to re-write 8 characters worth of macros for KR too. Plus get my containers scrambled every time I open them in KR.

    Quite frankly, I can't find anything else I like playing. I've tried several games over the last 2 years and the only one I liked closed down. I don't even have the heart to take it out of my sig.

    But this spring cleaning got me motivated, actually to clean out my houses and close down one of my accounts, but as I was cleaning out my houses and going through a collection of almost 11 years worth of crap. I realized this game is still the one I like to play the most. So I'm back. Lord Arcane has kindly donated a Greater Dragon to my tamer, you can find me training it on Ogre Lords in Despise. But mostly I'm still trying to organize my houses. Planning to put a bunch of odd jewelry and armor up for sale, but it's such a long list I haven't figured out how to do it yet.

    Damn I get long winded sometimes... Sorry.

    I'm with you GW. I'm actually very mentally ready for cleaning to be over. Not really because I'm bored and need new content, but because how ever far I've gotten, it will then be OK for me to be done.

    Good to have you back.

    And of course a big WELCOME to Oriana. :)

    I tried to give you back your insurance gold!!!! :D And, in all fairness, even though I still feel guilty, I only did what you told me to do!!!!

    Hi Oriana. It's great to see you here. :) Flora pops in and out of Luna to collect bods or bank, but mainly she's in the garden. Melina is on vacation. 7 years of hunting earned her one I think.

    HAHA...if only everyone who killed me felt that way...I'D BE RICH!!!

    It's just too bad the thrill of teh kill didn't turn you into a hardcore red by now...I think the reporting staff could use someone with a little blood lust.

    :)

    I just don't think I can afford to turn red ... With two exceptions in eight plus years, anytime I've killed someone I have felt really bad about it ... I rez, repay insurance gold .. it's kind of like, ummm, what else do you need? Better armor, a house, neon hair? :confused:

    Let's convince Oriana to take on the red reporter role .. I'll be there taking screenshots!!!

    HHmmm me as a red you say.....well maybe if I had a good teacher, and very patient of an 8 yr trammie....i don't know even know what kind of template to start with lol.

    Oh and Sara.....I'll see you on Baja lil miss :p

    LOL...silly noobs :p

    You don't have to be red to be in fel ya know... the Crow I play on Origin has stayed blue for the most part...Only time you need to be red is so your paralyze/poison fields, as well as vortex's, earthquakes/withers...ect...will affect non guild and ally blues. Other then that having blues on the field has it's advantages, such as others who don't want to go red not attacking, ability to use virtues, on and on.

    Haha..."can't afford to go red"...When I started up my last account I played for over a year with just Crow...didn't even create another character till he went red...then that one went red...damn, had to make another...then that one...CRAP, now I have to make another...

    As far as the template...meh...depends on what you're good at I suppose...there is no one 'pvp template'. That is after all the greatest part about this game, and what separates it from so many others...the ability to tweak and twist your character and style to whatever you want.

    I recommend just getting out there and doing the best you can. Find a group, get in their voice program and stay close, shut up, listen and learn. hehe

    Our guild charter after all is, "Shut up and fight."
