Just when I think I've seen everything, UO surprises me again. I've really got to set up Fraps so I can record if I want to, unfortunately I didn't this time. The Setting: I get attacked by a pack of faction enemies. I'm dismounted at the time for some reason, I can't remember why, anyway, my pets are fighting, I'm taking an awful lot of damage, so I call my babies and try to get the hell out of Dodge. Unfortunately I get caught by those delayed mystic bombshells and die a screen or two away, whereupon the ravenous pack sets on my babies and attempts to devour them as well. I hit the emergency log off button and save them from an untimely demise (no this isn't about auto stabling so don't even start... ). The Scene: I go grab a new life at the local wandering healer, and use my faithful pet ball to call my nightmare back from her home in the fifth dimension. My nightmare took quite a bit of damage and I can't mount for some reason, so I assume I'm getting one of those ridiculous "you must heal your mount... blah blah blah" messages, and start to heal her. The Action: Suddenly I realize, she's still fighting, which was probably the real reason I couldn't mount her. Not only that, she's still taking damage. I look around, there is no one around but me and my nightmare. I do a serious double take, and there can be no doubt about it, she's trying to kill herself. Apparently my death drove her to despair... DON'T DO IT!!! I STILL LOVE YOU BABY, AND I'M OK!!! IF IT'S PTSD WE CAN GET YOU SOME HELP!!!
