(spoilers I guess....) Regarding Inu the Crone and, maybe, Moonglow

Discussion in 'UHall' started by imported_GalenKnighthawke, Mar 26, 2008.

  1. Has Inu been in Moonglow long? Or was that just today?

    (This is the LS shard but I suspect she's everywhere.)

    Inu is in Moonglow, saying things, partly talking in nonsense, partly in what appears to be pig latin, and partly in anagrams.

    Inu: The lights, they flash! It burns us!
    Inu: Don't you see the hole?
    Inu: The world is round
    Inu: Mammering gull-catchers
    Inu: Doom!
    Inu: *jumps*
    Inu: *frowns*
    Inu: Spur-galled hempseeds!
    Inu: Maybe.
    Inu: Ymay onguetay isway onfoundedcay!
    Inu: Dooooooom...
    Inu: Istenlay otay emay!
    Inu: *laughs*
    Inu: Imetay itselfway allshay ebay entray andway orntay!
    Inu: A machine, a very very big machine!
    Inu: *hops*
    Inu: Maybe...
    Inu: Nooo
    Inu: Dooooooom...
    Inu: Half-faced mammets
    Inu: Istenlay otay emay!

    I don't know if I got everything or not. In fact, I KNOW I didn't get everything, because every once in awhile, she's ask me what I was looking at.

    She did not obviously respond to any key words. She did not obviously respond to swear words or displays of anger.

    -Galen's player
     
  2. good find!

    At least we know Inu's heeds in the past are always true. I guess we should stay away from moonglow for a little while [​IMG]

    My findings

    INU: Estructionday earsbay ownday onway usway
    INU: Nooooo
    INU: Imetay itselfway allshay ebay entray andway orntay!
    INU: Maybe
    INU: Maybe
    INU: Mammering gull-catchers
    INU: Doom!
    INU: A machine, a very very big machine!
    INU: Doom!
    INU: Heytay arknessday illway engulfway usway
    INU: Half-faced mammets
    INU: Don't you see the hole?
    INU: Mammering gull-catchers
    INU: *cackles*
    INU: *cackles madly*

    Time is going to be rent and torn. As the machine is built, the world starts proceeding into the future until it reaches TABULA RASA, Lord British's other life!

  21. So, as far as blackrock goes, what was the turn in rate when it was around last time? I missed it, so have no idea how many of what you needed.
     
  22. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Was an even trade for blackrock. One rock = one item. Different "kinds" of rock (ie:a small piece of blackrock vs a large piece of blackrock vs a piece of blackrock) gave different quality items.
     
  23. What kind of reward would say a small or regular piece of blackrock give?
     
  24. Guest

    Guest Guest

    I don't recall. Keep in mind they were at different levels of rarity back then then they are now.

    First let me say i love when NPCs get out of character. My favorite was the brit moongate ghost (edo or something like that). I miss that one as it was always good for a chuckle. Also, i like how the luna moongate keeps it fresh with the jokes and mockings of people. Anyhoo, this is exciting news. Glad to see things are going as planned and i am readying my weapons and spellbooks for this next adventure.

    Smaller pieces I got peerless reagents and Tokuno major/minor arties. The larger pieces gave me 3x agapite runic hammers, and Doom arties.
     
  27. <blockquote><hr>

    Well, not that I am doubting. But is there word of a turn in. Or like me are we still hopefully speculating there is based on hints from a while back?

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Draconi specifically said we'd have a use for our blackrock and Ophid rations coming soon just a few weeks ago. I know that there isn't a piece of blackrock or Ophid ration for sale anywhere on Pacific unless it's in some out of the way shop that I haven't run across yet. [​IMG]

    I'm sure hoping the 900k I just spent on a large piece of blackrock is going to be worth more than just a nifty piece of deco. [​IMG]

    I do know I still have about 10 +30 ASHs from the turn in.
    I think I got a couple of +60s and a few aggy hammers. One verite hammer.
    Umm... winds edge.... a few tokono minors... *ponders*

    I purposefully saved some rocks though so I would have more for the next turn in. (even though no one ever mentioned a next turn in) I figured this was the evil guys and the good guys would want some rocks too...
    Silly me!
     
  30. tbh i will be crazy mad if we dont get an turn in ( just spend 4 mill on rations yes i know 4m!!! )

    Inu on Baja is spewing a few different lines than I see in this thread.

    Grizzled folly-fallen dewberries.

    Mewling half-face (meers?)

    Roguish eye-offending

    What're *you* looking at?

    Rudesbies

    Spleeny!

    I just hope there will be an opportunity for those of us to still earn some large pieces blackrock to turn in if this is the case.

    Honestly, since i came back in november i mined like a madman in tram and fel (mostly tram) and never got a single piece of blackrock or saw a blackrock elemental spawn. I did spend about 300k on small blackrock pieces from a vendor as soon as the event was announced.

    To be honest I really don't think there's going to be a turn in just yet. I think this is more of us going through the events that were stress tested a while back.... where we got two worlds because the time-space got ripped...

    Unfortunately the last remaining leprechauns were slaughtered years ago for their nice green mugs.

    And we have Ale.. which is pretty good.

    i think what happend on test also, was all the people who have black rock stored in there houses, had there homes blown up, something about inu warned us not to covet the black rock and toss it and so on...so we had enough warning
     
  46. ok, that was weird. I was standing there watching Inu babble on and then she stopped and walked with purpose (like someone was controlling her) halfway around moonglow!
    I burted out something and she stopped moving immediatly!
    weird....

    Now that'd be awful.. I think all my homes have at least some blackrock in them somewhere... probably couldn't find it all if I wanted to clean it out.

    I know a LOT of players would be extremely pissed if that happened. It took me 3 days to get my house designed the way it is now. I can imagine how some like Sarsmi with the massive custom deco would react if all of it went up in flames.

    I highly doubt that would happen on the production shards.
