Poor, poor trammy...

    Well, i have recently x-ferred to Great Lakes just for the heck of it. But, today i logged onto my newb char on Atlantic to hang out with my guild.

    While there, we went to New Haven. Upon opening a moongate to the Fel guild house, we had two trammies follow us through. One left soon after, while the other, King Alan, stayed. We killed his hoarde minion, and drank the liquor it had on it. For 10 minutes, he stayed outside the doors to my house. I opened the doors to let him come loot his hoarde minion, and he attacked me. Being that i was on a newb char, i quickly closed the doors.

    He wore regular platemail armor, and was as new as you could get without being considered young. I logged onto my red, and killed him quickly. He got rezzed by a nearby healer, and stayed outside for another 10 minutes. When we asked him what he wanted, he said he was after the 8k gold we took off his hoarde minion. I let him in, and took him down into my dungeon. I tossed the 8k gold into a cell, and he went in to grab it. That's when i slammed the Owner Only gate shut. He stayed there for about 45min, with us just throwing explosion pots at him.

    After a while, we'd go into the cell to talk to him, and he'd attack us. So me and my friend, who was also on a newb char, kept letting him kill us. We then would count him. After 5 counts, he was red. We told him that this meant that he could not return to trammel. I gave him a proposal. I said that he could live in my dungeon and use the thief training room to become a thief. When he was a thief, he could join us. He agreed. I set all the doors to the dungeon as Owner Only, and let him out of his cell.

    I then tried to have him read the book i wrote about training a thief, but he didn't understand it. It turns out that his native language is Indonesian, and he couldn't understand English very well. After knowing this, i felt bad. We tried to show him how to train stealing, and even lured a gypsy halfway across Fel to my house, so he could train Stealing from the NPC to 30 or so. He couldn't even understand how to train Stealing from the NPC drop-down menu. That is when he asked me this:

    [​IMG]

    I felt bad, so i agreed. I did warn him that he had to wait 40 in-game hours to return to trammel. He still wanted to leave. I opened the gates to my dungeon and let him free. He then asked to be sent to a populated area. We warned him that people would now kill him on sight. He said, and i quote:

    "I will fight like a true warrior."

    Poor roleplaying newb, lol. I couldn't talk him out of it, nor convince him to stay. So, we opened a gate to the only moongate rune we had, Fel Yew. He told us goodbye, and went through. I honestly didn't even care to go and check to see how fast he died. It didn't need confirmation, it was just inevitable, lol.

    He was a nice guy, and i feel bad. If he would've understood English better, then he could've had an awesome story to tell later on down the line about how he became a thief. A trammy forbidden to return to trammel...what a sad story, lol.

    Aww. I was hoping this would be a cool story about how you turned a trammy to the dark-side of UO.

    Instead I find it a funny-sad story. Good read though :)

    That was the original plan...but because he could hardly understand english, and therefore couldn't understand my training book, it made things 100x harder. It came close to working though, lol.

    Adds a whole new level to the definition of "persuasion theft"... :lol:

    ETA: You forgot the part (or were perhaps saving me the embarassment) where it took me like 3 minutes to actually open a gate to the moongate.

    That was funny...
    Went something like...

    Shinobi: Bye! Good luck!
    *fizzle*
    Shin: Cya around!
    *fizzle*
    Shin: If you ever want to make a thief, you come find us, ya hear?
    *fizzle*
    Shin: Ummm...so ya, cya later!
    *fizzle*
    Shin: Well...if Iri ever gets the gate up...
    *fizzle*
    Shin: You sure you want to go?
    *fizzle*
    Irie: Aha! *moongate opens*

    Nub transforms into one of those necro beasts...misses gate.

    Irie: *casts moongate spelll.....fizzle*

    Shin: Ummm...
    *fizzle*

    *moongate finally opens again and nub goes through*

    Wish you were in Haven tonight...lots of fun to be had :drool:

    I think I made it onto UWFs ban list without actually doing anything.

    (not like that'll stop me... :popcorn: sounded like a dare to me)

    Although it might have had something to do with the llama i named Drama Llama...

    Hah, I beat ya to it! They banned me for no reason, when I joined their guild to steal from them!

    Some low-life was already stealing from them, and I was called the thief, when I never even left the supervision of the Emmy who recruited me. UWF is filled with silly people

    Aaron, you better not be talking about me, because I would be personally offended.

    this may be why uo is dying. when you treat new players like prisoners, merely because they don't know how to even play the game, i doubt very much any of them are going to want to return.

    He plays a bad guy. UO is designed to allow players to pursue both good and evil objectives. That's part of what draws players to the game.

    Also, it is possible to play an evil character in UO and be a nice person irl. Half of the UO thieves I've met are law enforcement outside of the game. Believe it or not, as many items as I have stolen from players and as many players as I have PK'd, I have never robbed or murdered anyone irl.

    P.S. Your last sentence contains a personal attack, which is against TOS. You might want to adjust it.

    There is a place called trammel for those players. The guy here ignored the warnings when going through the fel gate. The guy here ignored the warnings when attacking the player. I could go on but I think by now you should get the idea.

    Hahahhaha nice story.
    But you, op, were TOO soft.The 'poor trammy' used the 'poor trammy' attitude to provoke pity.Then, he manipulated you into releasing him, but what is WORSE, he made you feel sorry for your actions.

    That is a trick known to any true thief, rogue, spy, or any other person who has to deal with the enemy while not being able to properly defend himself in battle.

    In the end, you could draw no power from this event.You shared this trammys weakness.I feel sorry that our thieves here are that soft.
