Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Dola, Sep 26, 2011.
Some old timer, long since past like say......Dola?
King Edward/Krews/Guardian KX does...
Oh wait, you did say still on Siege (not Stratics).
Me. I think I remeber you from when I started on Siege.
Haha remembers you and Grot...and the pic of the red headed baby yawning next to you at the computer.
Yes, of course I remember you! At least as Kuzara back in the days of CWS.
I remember you.And grot from the start of seige CGG!
Ah yes, the Golden Gorger. Now that's old school! Speaking of old school, does Kush still frequent Siege?
Yall still in Calif. ?
Is Grot still in the military ?
How are the kids doing ?
I remember you and Grot, some of my favorite people from the old White Council...
Fought against You and Grot in my J-D days, traveled with the Shire, albeit rarely during one of my various 'returns.' Nice to see an old name...
PS - I see you too Corwin! Man, I hated that Lance of yours, but nice to see you too!
Hi Dola, Kuzara, Varka, Queen Zen, Corwin and Hera..not playing UO at the moment, but saw that it was the 14th anny of UO today, so I stopped by the boards...and found a small reunion hehe.
We will always have D.C. *winks*
lol, that was so gimp. Pets were so over powered when AOS came out. Armor was unbalanced, folks hadn't figured out how to maximize their elemental protections, and everyone was just running away from me on sight. I knew combining the lance with my pets would be deadly way back in the AOS beta, but kept it on the back burner. But eventually I decided I just didn't care and got the 120 taming scroll I needed to re-work my template. Few people at the time understood the pet control equation and that 120 taming + 20 animal lore gave the same level of control as 100 taming and 100 animal lore. I eventually found a nice guy who sold me a no penalty lance that could be equipped while spell casting.
I think that reign of terror cost me about 20k gp. :O
The downside was that I couldn't use my PBD on a fast cast ring or what have you, so my spell casting was rather bleh. I rarely wore anything better than 2/2 total and often worse. An all too familiar state of affairs to folks without a PBD or a Hat of the Magii.
Turns out there was also a bug that would have let me concuss or dismount on every attempt. If I remember right it was triggered by something like casting a spell first and then striking with the lance before something timed out ... which was often what I was trying to do anyway.
I used twin mares for their ability to keep up with me better, and fortunately not many people on the shard figured out that mares have much lower HP than dragons or wyrms or they would have nuked them and either poisoned them to keep me from healing them, or just kept me busy.
It was all the nuances of running a tamer that made it interesting to me ... oh, and plus the firepower sure didn't hurt.
I remember you
Not me Then again, I'm not on Siege anymore...la
Hey, Fel! Long time no see and good to see you're still kicking! I'll have to tell Bruno you checked in!
Howdy, Dola! I'm no longer on Siege, but you know I remember you.
Hiya Dola, I hope life's treating you well.
Still on Siege? No. Still play UO? Nope. Remeber Dola? Absolutely!
It is so great to see some old familar names. Especially the CWSers but love to you all. I may hop on if they do a free week in October like they use to in the past. My twins are almost 5, the crying baby pic from my early days was Kayla she is now 7 and in second grade. I'm involved in Girl Scouts, teaching, volunteering, tutoring, all in all just keeping busy. I hop on to play any kind of game for maybe 30 mins max a day, just don't have the time.
Grot retired from the military - BIG HAPPY DANCE here! No more PCSing, no more TADs, no more WTIs, etc. We are no longer in Southern Cal but back in Virginia working on getting a bigger house, while the town house was fine with 1 baby, it is rather intimate and cozy with three children.
I can't believe UO is 14 and still kicking.
Sad to see some no longer here such as Mats or Wrym but still good to see some familar names and faces.
So when is it the free week for UO again?
Hey Dola, been a while. I'm not 'on Siege' these days, but I still lurk.
And Corwin, weren't you hanging around Yew gate on the day I tested the dismount-lance-mount mechanics? That was the start of some fun times. I'm sure I wasn't the first to do it ever, but it was new to me and the population in general for a while there.
as I change, so does my character. But I remember you, and business that we had. Glad that you dropped in. Makes me miss the old days and old ways once again.....
