Searching for Belan the looter[~2001]

    Good morning (or afternoon or evening) everyone!

    Sorry for bothering you all, but I was wondering if anyone possibly knows the whereabouts or contact information of the infamous Belan the looter?

    I've tried to contact the owner via the email address on the old archive but it seems to be completely dead. I know it's been a long time (11-12 years is a good long time), but the trail starts up again somewhere around 2008 where two users of your site claimed to know 'Belan' or have met him recently (supposedly he graduated in computer science etc.)

    Now you ask, 'Who the hell are you and why are you trying to find someone who's been off the radar for more than a decade?' Here's the short of it: I need permission to publish his exploits in a book I'm writing.

    I do have a lead, but it's oh so weak (friend of a friend of a friend's divorced siamese twin), so any clues or vague ideas would help.

    Regards,
    A.D

    Didn't Belan the Looter have a website where he had screenshots to complement his episodes?

    It has been a long time, and i may be getting my stories mixed up, but if so his stories were absolutely hysterical.

    Good luck hunting him down.

    Curiously, why do you need his permission to write about him? Maybe you still have the website writings and want to use them?

    Ahh...my old Alumni from San Diego. UO's most famous Trammy, Belan, or as he was known on the boards, Kral.

    I have looted his board account, if anyone wants to pay me for it let me know.

    As for the man himself, off to pursue his goals in life, last I heard he was actually pre-op at this point and fully out....but that is just rumor, he did go into the IT world after his Masters program, and has done well.
    One of these days I may actually let him know that he spent his time in the undergrad program without knowing his classmate was also playing UO, and laughing at his silly antics as he played out his real life fantasies.
    We ladies had less flattering things to say about him then he would have believed.

    Fellow cyber Bully Crazy Joe should be able to point you in his direction.

    That's the one! Sorry, when I set up this account last night I didn't have enough posts to include a link in the intro. Sorry for the inconvenience. The email link in that site has been dead for ages.

    Ah just the person I needed! Could I pass on a message through you, or do I need to track down this Crazy Joe? I checked the old UO Thief forums but there's no sign of him.

    Regards,

    Apologies for the sin of double-posting, I'll be sure to steam my loins as punishment.

    Kral, I talked to crazyJoe. Guess what he said? Talk to Kral. The trail of Belan ends in a circle.

    Look, if you somehow encounter him, I dunno, in a dark alleyway way past bed-time, tell him this: 'Many people think your stories are very amusing, so they're being printed in a book. You're getting credited for this too. Even with the most sophisticated tracking technology you couldn't be located. If you actually damn well reply some day, I'm legally bound to give you a free copy and wear a skirt of any colour, taste or texture for you.'

    Regards,

    And, you know, a cut of the profits.

    Sorry, I never liked him. My general name for him being "earing boy".

    I have never been a believer in "I am actually a good person, I just role play evil". Experience has taught me that evil is to the bone.

    Meaning I never had any contacts to reach him outside the University, and that was 9 years ago since I finished my masters.

    Good luck on your efforts!

    And this account is available to anyone who wants to have the original "Belan the noble looters" Stratics account. The original owner carelessly left it laying around :)
