    I am three times more stupid than the average player

    Stupid once: I don't insure my belongings, I been in the game for a few years but very rarely PVP and being a master coward rarely fight something that will kill me so I don't bother with insurance..

    Stupid twice: I don't have much to do with the current chain of events because I am not a great fighter, in fact sometimes I forget about the invasion and stay in my house doing BODs or mining in some out of the way place.....

    Stupid thrice: I don't often think before I act, I will just recall to a spot on impulse

    All this must change because last night with all my hard earned uninsured items, I recalled in to Yew to have a look around Heartwood....right into the hoard of invading monsters....not very clever, before I could swear I was dead and with no chance of getting my armour and weapons back.

    Still it taught me a lesson, stop buying stuff I don't want to lose, I know you are saying get insurance but I don't play for gold so i don't have much (less than a million after 5 or more years) but I should try and get more so i can afford it.

    so that is me, just call me Stupid
    afer all that I did laugh:)

    Awwww. These things happends. I ran into Moonglow last week too. All seems ok. No invasion to see . But then i saw the message i was frozen. Crimson dragon appeared and killed me in one smack. Crafters with no armor don't last long. ;)

    I went to Yew and got wacked... so you are not alone.

    Humans have an infinite amount of stupidity! ... and I have my own share!

    Don't be so hard on your'e self, it's only a game after all :)
    And by all means you are not stupid, i normally don't insure the gear im wearing on my trammie toons either. If i loose their spinned armor suit then its no big deal really. I just make a new suit in no time.

    Thanks for your offer Catlord :) but I am not too worried about losing stuff, I don't play for gold or items, just for the fun and escapism, so like I said at the end I laughed at my stupid mistake, and no doubt I shall make a few more silly mistakes before long (it's part of the game and it stop's me getting bored)

    But if anyone sees a Demon wearing my snake skin boots hit him for me :)

    I logged through the chars to collect gifts.
    One was sitting in the inn in Brit East. Logged in with his backpack full of the gifts of at least 6 years, maybe more - beginning with his practice weapon sword and nothing than his newbie clothes on.
    Outside of the inn - Crimson Dragon. Fine - I am inside, he outside, so time to look at the art of the beast.
    But ... the beast did walk the shortest way to the door, opened it and bite me for 190 damage with one hit before I even could think about "run".
    Although I could recover all my stuff - can you imagine the clutter of all the blessed items in the main level of backpack?

    I think we all get caught at some time or other
    But I also would stop to look at the crimson dragon, it does look very good
