Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Ibichi_Wakayama, Oct 27, 2005.

  1. A very sad happening this morning. I go to check on my fishies to see how they are doing and I find two dead. Nothing but thier little bones left in the tank.

    I know that Shabba surely had something to do with this horror.

    But now he has to look at the poor bones I have locked down in his room every time he logs in.

    Nooo! Two deaths in one evening??!! Highly suspicious...I suspect something similar to the Purple Frog Incident occurred OR that certain virulent contaminants (a/k/a Shabba germs), were introduced to the delicate ecosystem. Some creatures simply are not strong enough to fight off an acute case of cooties [​IMG].

    But, the circle of life continues...2 deaths, and 2 births. Yes! Although we must mourn the tragedy that has befallen your aquarium, at the same time we can rejoice that there were 2 new arrivals to mine: a full moon fish (which looks like a big orange circle) and a yellow fin bluebelly!

    *notices Wulf choking on something, pauses to adminster Heimlich maneuver*

    Hmmm, looks like a giant hairball. I thought only cats got those.

    Anyway, I think a surveillance system may be in order for your house, Ibichi.

    Well, isn't that a little convenient....

    I propose that the killer is none other than Skylark herself!

    *pulls out monacle*
    This morning, the fiend checked her own aquarium, and finding nothing but the result of her own incompetence floating at the top, she placed two skeletons into a bag hidden on her person.

    Driven by jealousy and greed, she approached Ibichi's manor, entered through the door Tilly forgot to lock behind him, then exchanged her own failures for the pride and joy of the Ibichi Aquarium!

    Knowing full well that Tilly would be blamed for the dastardly deed, she not only failed to hide her actions, but flaunted the results of them for all to see!

    I like my circle of life explanation better.

    &lt;------------- It rolled that way, to the northleft.

    Just do not put the monacle in your mouth when you find it, hon. I am too tired to give you another Heimlich maneuver.

    I was initially pissed off about the fish bones on the floor but now that I have seen the pub 37 changes nothing could make me sad.

    THANK GOD THEY FIXED THE ELVEN HAIR BUG. I mean really there have been entire shards pancakes about that for months.

    And the hunger system. Wow, finally. I mean we all know this really needed to be addressed. I have been playing this game over four years and have never gotten hungry, but I am sure this was very important.

    And if I had a home I know I would be pissed about a Hearth of the Home not having the right name. Good thing they picked up on that before I got a house or a hearth.

    The "W" missing on the longitudinal coordinates is perhaps the best improvement to this game in years. I was so close to cancelling my last account, but this "W" will keep me around for another publish.

    Now what were we saying about fish bones?
  9. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Hmmpff...go ahead and try to change the subject to trivialities such as Publish 37! Well, those poor fish bones will serve as a silent reminder of your evil deed everytime you slink to your room. Like the tell-tale heart beating beneath the floorboards, their empty little eye sockets will stare at you accusingly, you will hear the echoes of their little fish cries of death...and soon you will be driven to MADNESS.


    Just a bit of pre-Halloween mood setting to go with the fish tank taunting, Tilly.

    And while he pondered weak and weary
    His eyes glazed over droopy and blurry
    He stumbled into a statue tall
    He thought his feet hit early a wall
    in the dark

    But nay his toes were all bloody
    He did not feel anything cuddly
    nay only the cold cold part
    of some statue's stoney heart
    in the dark

    And suddenly he heard a rapping
    rap rap rapping grasping tapping a tapping
    down below him on the floor
    rapping gasping tapping gasping ever more
    the haunting of a dead fish upon the floor
    in the dark

    Then she came home
    She entered the house alone
    And what did before her did she see
    but a dead fishie upon the floor
    shouting... Tilly is ..no more

    she raced to turn on the light
    and she nearly fainted at the sight
    of a human hand in the mouth of dead boned fish
    the dead fish laughing..saying it got it's wish
    Truffles ala Tilly ..FISHFOOD prime
    tis this real or pixel nightmare sublime ??

    While ye ponder weak and weary
    Be ye mindful of aquarium's theory
    For in the end...

    in the dark

    ye may hear a fish dead and stark

    laughing laughing upon ye midnite floor.
  12. Hahaha!

    A classic *grins*

    Well done, QZ!

    Guest Guest

  14. QZ you just had me spit my coffee all over my desk laughing. That was pretty durn good.

    Can not wait til Mr. Haughty Timmer reads it.

    btw his room is getting to smelling a bit from the dead fish on his floor......at least I think it is the fish.

    And Wulf, shame on you trying to blame Sky. *points you to a corner*

    The fish of course had tricked
    The setter of the trap so lame
    For Tilly is neither foolish
    Nor a newbie to this game

    An encounter had been had
    Between the Bones and the man in the bed
    But the story is distorted
    For this is what was said

    "Whose bones are on my floor
    and why are they so limp"
    Said Shabba to the skele
    Of the fish who once were pimp

    "Tis us the former residents
    Of the tank in where you shat"
    Cried the former Minoc Bluefish
    Using spirit speak - or was it guild chat

    Shabba smiled like a Cheshire
    So happy with himself
    The turd had killed the fish
    As was promised by the elf

    Shabba had enlisted the elf
    To destroy his aquatic foe
    "By any means necessary"
    Was how the instructions were said to go

    So the elf pondered his charge
    How could he kill the fish
    As he sucked upon his hookah
    He shored up his plan - and the perfect dish

    To Skylark's house he ran
    For a meal he tasted before
    This meal, though pegged a gourmet dish,
    Had rotted through his floor

    The elf choked down the nastiness
    And chased it with some meade
    He quickly gated to Ibichi's
    Knowing not even Immodium could impede
    The pending bomb which was created
    By a chef who gave recipes no head

    Shabba held the elf up high
    As he pointed his bottom towards the tank
    The bluefish and the Coral
    Saw two blue cheeks about to join their ranks

    Just then the elf exploded
    The muffins had worked so fast
    But such is has been the experience
    Of most tasting Skylark's repast

    The tank turned a horrible hue
    First to brown, then black, then green
    By the time the water settled
    Not a single living creature could be seen

    Shabba and the elf laughed mightily
    (After the elf fastened his pants)
    Nothing could survive her cooking
    The coral didn't even stand a chance

    Shabba paid the blue man with fish steaks
    Which were made before the plight
    It seems elves are found of shark fins
    And delicacies of the like

    When the cajun floozi returned
    Her poor tamer eyes did tear
    The fishtank was discolored
    For her fishies she did fear

    The inspection confirmed her thoughts
    As her anger began to swell
    "I know that Tilly shat in here
    Gosh damn him all to hell"

    She set upon a punishment
    Intended to harass
    And remind her squatting tenant
    Of the death caused by his a$$

    She locked down two sets of bones
    And left them as a trap
    Knowing when Tilly returned
    He would gripe and label them crap

    So when Tilly had complained
    She knew her plan had worked
    But when she entered his fair room
    She could not find the jerk

    The fish she thought talked to her
    And told her of the tale
    Where they tricked ole Tilly once last time
    And swallowed him like a whale

    But what the floozi failed to realize
    Was that the fish they did not speak
    It was just her tenant Tilly
    Hidden under the bed and whispering so meak

    The floozi was contented
    She had gotten her revenge
    Tilly was no longer squatting
    And the fish had secured his end

    But nae my friends tis not true
    I am laughing under my bed
    Knowing how I destroyed the fishtank
    And replaying the explosion in my head

    Oh my.
  19. I have tears running down my face I am laughing so hard. Sweetie I think I have to admit you won this round...but I will get you back.

    What is even funnier you left D it seems pretty much speechless and that is an great feat!

    Did you stay up all night to come up with that?

    Guest Guest

    *shakes head*

    If only all that effort and creativity could be harnessed for good.

    I would say he wins this exchange, too, Ibichi...however I am appalled at the blatant attempts to damage my reputation in this thread, first by Wulf, who accused me of terrible things (after I saved him from choking to death on a hairball even!) and then by Tilly, who has besmirched my honor as a chef (among other things [​IMG]).

    There are conspiracies on Siege! Conspiracies, I say! Even shenanigans!

    *stomps off to draft special recipes a la Granny of the Beverly Hillbillies to serve Tilly for Thanksgiving dinner*

    Hey, I never accused you of terrible things.

    In fact, I highly approved.
  22. I see pointing to the corner did no good sooo *shoves wulf in the corner* sit and hush.

    Skylark, we must come up with something to get to retaliate...but I am still at a loss. We just can not allow him to WIN UO like this.

    Guest Guest

    I know! I hate that we might have to devote actual energy to this task, but justice sometimes demands sacrifices. The problem is, we are dealing with a depraved mind in our opponent, so the real issue is, how can we punish him, while at the same time ensuring that he doesn't enjoy it?


  26. Well, you do have him pegged just right. This is going to take some very hard work on our part.

    And Mr "D", I am not a witch and I am not easy!!!!!
  27. Guest

    Only one way to prove this.
    A face sitting.

    If thou does not cackle, thou is neither easy nor a witch.

    I have a feeling tonight's Vent session is going to be one to remember.

    If we ever taped our Vent sessions the rest of the shard would be amazed at what goes on.

    Hey D did I tell you Ibichi dropped the F bomb in vent the other night? And what is that on your face?
  33. TIMMER!!! I only it said once and I was very tired and frustrated, besides you goaded me by trying to tell me what to do. Hell, ya'll say it all the time.

    And to think we went through hours of hell to get that one stupid thing to make something that will be banked until the non existant pbd is had.
