    The Honourable Mention Wall of Fame

    TeranPriest : March 2001 : TeranPriest camped a Large IDOC Tower on Napa Valley, and was watching for several days. The day it fell he missed out on placeing a house, however looted many paintings. After the others placed their houses, they turned their attention on Teran and attacked, killing him only a few steps from his own house that was located nearby. They looted his paintings, and Teran lost all he waited for. However he noticed that the people that placed the larger house were buying all the smalls that were placed around him. It was apparent what was happening, and sure enough the next day a new Large Tower stood where a few smalls were placed the day before. Then Teren saw the tower for sale on Tradespot. After exchanging several ICQ's, Teran slipped the idea that a Keep may fit. Sure enough, he was hidden near the tower and saw the people surveying the area checking if a Keep would fit. After camping the area hidden for over 20 hours, the Tower owners arrived, and redeeded the Tower. Before they knew what hit them, a new large Tower stood before them - and it didn't belong to them! TeranPriest succesfully got his revenge on those that screwed him over! They were angry (to put it mildy) and even paged a Game Master claiming Teran Exploited.

    ShadowJack : April 2001 : Stole a large potted plant from someone shopping at his vendor. He then put the plant on his vendor, and stole it back everytime someone tried to buy it. He priced it at 200k, and stole it a grand total of 7 times, netting him 1.4 million. He then finally sold it for 300k

    Serpentine : June 2001 : Joined a new guild with a friend after seeing the Guildmaster spamming at Brit bank. After almost blowing their cover when he spoke out loud of their intentions instead of in party chat, they managed to get friended to the house. Then, after the Guildmaster logged, they looted his house, unbanned everyone from his ban list, and both swore fealty to Serpentine. This meant they not only looted his house, but stole his guild too. They later moved the stone to Serpentine's house and kicked the original Guildmaster out, all the while, pinning it on some new recruit.

    Serpentine and Masked Falcon : August 2001 : While Falcon was shopping for daemon armor, a person came through selling100000 boards. Sensing an easy scam, and a thousand free boards, Serpentine hid in the bank back room and awaited the drop... But there was no drop. Instead, they were told their logs were on the ground in Felucca! Falcon, the buyer, and Serpentine, the follower, were gated to the location before the seller was paid. There, they found several piles of 60000 logs neatly arranged in a small enclosure in T2A! Falcon marked a rune, and after Stuckhelping out with 60K logs apiece, Falcon gated back and the job was repeated for a haul of 240K logs. However, Falcon dropped his second load behind a mountain, and GM Halona could not retrieve them.

    FreezerBurn : September 2001 : After ICQing somebody about buying a house and being forced to wait a long time for the transfer, FreezerBurn accumulated various checks in a pouch, enough to pay for the house. Upon the owner's arrival, the house trade went through as planned... and the bag of checks was promptly stolen back. Later, FreezerBurn sold the house for more than he would have bought it for had he actually paid for it.

    Rogue Valentine : October 2001 : (Translated out of RP) - While Rogue is messing around with his friends giving his one friend's new neighbors some murder counts, a new arrival in a Valorite robe and cloak on an ethereal recalls in. Stealthing behind him into his house, Rogue snoops him and discovers 5.2 million gold and a 3rd year Zombie statue! The person recalls away, and Rogue decides to check the containers for being secure. They are. However, he finds a pouch on the ground that ISN'T secure, OR locked down! He grabs it and takes off with it, discovering the very 5.2 million gold and zombie statue he had seen on the person before! In the true manner of 'noble' thiefdom, he left a book explaining to the guy how he just got screwed over.

    Sar Shen : February, 2002 : Short but effective - While the pure mare craze was in full swing after they were just introduced and could only be found in Fel, Sar singlehandedly stole the bloodmoss of every tamer camping the Felucca Terathan Keep, disabling their ability to Invis, and for most of them, Recall. While Sar didn't linger to find out, it's reasonable to think he alone reduced the lifespan of many of these tamers and made many looters happy.

    Public enemy : August 2002 : Public enemy, trying to sell his Lshape house, encountered a thief who planned to pay for the house with checks in a bag. He proceeded to ask the "scammer wannabe" why he wanted to have the checks inside a bag and stole the bag right before the trade so the thief wouldn't notice. The plan worked and the would-be scammer replied to him "Dude there's a new bug out where if you don't put checks in a bag then they go straight to the person and you lose it, so I have to use it." The conversation that followed Public Enemy pointing out his theft to the scammer is entertaining:
    Him: "OMFG YOU PIECE OF **** I am paging a GM on your gay ass!"
    PE: "And say what? That you attempted to scam a vet and you got screwed in your own ass?"
    Him: "Dude your such a ******* pansy, duel me you queer."
    PE: "No thanks, I prefer to sell this house for 6 Mill making my total... 11.5 Mill. Thanks for the checks."
    Him: "LOL my brother is a GM I just told him to ban you..."

    Anonymous Stratics Administrator, February 2004: In the most widespread theft in Stratics history the accounts of about 80,000 members were deleted accidently. Chaos ensued as Admins and Moderators scrambled to register their names before evil-doers beat them to it. Millions of posts were lost and Stratics Legends were reduced to humble visitors. Tears were shed, fingers were pointed, and now we have this Honorable Mention to look back on and tell our grandchildren......or something like that.

    Geuel, April 2004: In a theft that would make any thief proud, Geuel stole a cheese stick in real life from Mr. Tact at the Austin UO Meetup. Like any good thief would, he snooped, saw what he wanted then sat back and played it cool until the right time arose. When all the other people focused their attention on Fertbert, Geuel went to grab his prepositioned drink and then grabbed the cheese stick which he had on last target. Unfortunately he went grey, but the only one to notice (Hotaru-Chan) restrained herself from shouting the G-word. He munched on the cheese stick while waiting out the 2 minute timer and lived happily ever after.

    Hall of Fame and the Wall of Shame - Theft of the Week / Month

    The way this works is pretty simple. Every month there will be a sticky thread created titles "Theft of the Month for February" or whatever date it is at the time. What you need to do is post in it when you steal something worth a ton of gold, or that you swiped in an odd/amusing way from the mark. The post should include what you stole, who you stole it from and a bit of a story to go along with it. You don't need to have the most expensive item to win if you have a good story to go along with it :>

    At the end of each month, I'll toss up a poll with the different thefts that have happened and let people vote on what they think is the best one. The winner gets added to the Hall of Fame. Yay \o/

    If we catch you lying about a theft, well, you get to go on the Wall of Shame, and we won't bother looking at any future submissions :p

    If you need a picture hosted for your theft, send me a private message and we can arrange something.

    The Wall of Shame :/

    Eva_04 : Claiming to steal a 1.25 million check, when it's not possible to make such a check. Eva then admitted it was a lie.

    mawood : Claiming to steal a trapped box containing 100 of each reg, when such a theft is impossible due to the fact that the box would be over 80 stones.

    chrae, April 2004: chrae stole a +25 stat scroll at a harrower spawn, and upon getting an ICQ message from a friend about how some thief just stole his stat scroll he decided to give it back only to have this guy die to a dire wolf and have the scroll looted by someone else. Moral of the story is this....a thief with a conscience is a poor thief!

    Solice_, February 2005: Claims to have lured "someone" out of their house with an unblessed Hat of the Magi, given them a polar bear mask, and the "someone" removed their hat to try on the mask, at which point Solice_ stole it. Then he killed them and looted back the mask. When asked for proof (ie: People claimed BS on his post) he disappeared from the boards.

    As an honorable mention, and goal. I here-by include Chad Sexington. Why? For a year-long theft that wasn't discovered until undisclosed by him. I have decided to take this at face value, and include it in this historic record of thieving deeds done and to be emulated.

    I'll give 10m to the winner of this month. May be collected on Atl, LS, or GL.

    Or, 1.5m on Siege. I'd like to give more there, but I accidentally bought one of those damned town titles.

    - Pictures of the theft occurring are preferred.

    - Telling a story isn't necessary, but they'd be fun to read.
