    after a lot of time and effort, i was finally able to pull together enough soulstones to put every skill in game on a stone and then have a couple left over for changing out the skills.

    and when i finally put them all out, well hell, with the glow thing they do it makes the house laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagy.

    but it sure looks cool!

    I just hope you're one of those ignorant people that lets their house fall and months later come back asking what happened to your SSs.

    yes, ive played since day 1, ive GMed or 120ed every skill in game and put it on a soulstone collection that took me years to get..... and im gonna walk away and let my house IDOC and loose it all.

    hehehehe.

    those stones will be the first thing into the bank the day i leave the game.
    which will probablly be the same day the pull the plug.

    Don't you have like 10 too many SS anyway? (Didn't bother counting). Damn what a waste unless you have some super-templates like 80 tracking on one and 120 on another.

    i love it! way to go poo - a man after my own heart :)
    if i had the time and resources, i'd do the same thing.
    i'm slightly OCD and this game is an awesome way to let that side of me run rampant :D
    woo hoo for poo!!! and a happy new year :)
    thanks for sharing!
     
  9. Everyone has their own goals to achieve in game. Who are you to say what another person's goals should or shouldn't be? He achieved a goal he set for himself, and one that wasn't easy or cheap. Good for him. Now he gets to figure out what his next goal will be, and it will most likely NOT be something you would set for yourself. There isn't a single thing wrong with that.

  15. Oh really?

    He specifically said it was a waste unless it was done in some way that he says it should be. Why don't you learn to read and while you're at it, learn what a forum troll is. I won't even go into the definition of a thief.
     
  16. all those your??!! Or some deco only?

    WTG Poo, you are a nutcase and the men wearing the white coats have been looking for you but they having a hard time with finding your current location, last I heard you were on a tour of shards with YAD?

    It sure does look cool. Congratulations on the accomplishment.

    You seem to be in a unique position, would you comment on which skills you found ~>
    Easiest to finish (Focus?)
    Hardest to finish (Remove Trap?)
    Most useless and probably never to come off the stone again (Item Identification?)

    I think I have been outed! lol

    OK... I am a soulstone addict! I admit it! lol

    None of them are deco, all are bound to the same account. Blue stones are each skill locked at 120 (extras for changing around and for Inbuing, Mysticism, and Throwing. The green stones are each skill again locked at 100 with a few extras for the new SA skills and for moving skills around. All 7 characters have used each of the 120 scrolls so anyone can do anything at any time.

    Congratulations Poo. I know how hard that achievement is! (I also know that while mine is all Atlantic - you are crazy enough to do it on Multiple Shards!) :)

    And yes... the lag is horrible... I had to page a GM once to look for a lost mousehole in that house... He congratulated me for lagging him more than any other house ever had... rofl Of course, the hundreds of runebooks and benches don't help the lag either...
     
  21. He said it was a waste unless it was done the way he said it should be.

    That's pretty much dictating his own idea of it instead of what Poo wanted. The unless pretty much gives it away.

    So yeah, you're still trolling.

    Poo is your house public, can it be visited? (post shards/coords if it can) :D

    Mine is... Atlantic Shard, South Malas - just off of the west shore of the lake. There is a large yew tree just off the shore and it is the house just west of that tree. I do not know the exact coordinates, but it is just down screen fro 0,0 0,0.

    As much as I see you in the House Deco forums, I think you'd like the place. Never could figure out how to get screenshots of it, so I have never posted... It's actually 6 18x18's merged via illusions...

    That's ok though. Keep on sticking up for your thief buddy. The one that scams people in Tram and calls it stealing.


    Isn't that a bridge over your head? Why yes, I do believe it is......

    Very nice! That took a huge amount of work, the deco is wonderful. I can see we are clearly on the same wavelength in regards to OCD. :D

    I took pics for you, and cropped and uploaded. I just did the outside, since I still have other things I want to do today. :p Four images, two regular size (which are huge) and two half-size which are still pretty big. This is the small size JPG, there are also gifs with no background, just the houses:

    You will probably want to right click and save the pics, tho I'm sure they'll be up on my host forever. ;)

    I am really impressed with your runelibrary! I started making one on Baja and the sheer amount of time I've already put into it is just crazy! It's definitely not a project for the faint of heart. :)

    i have a guild called OCD, hehehehe

    Taz, you bugger, i didnt know you where as sick as me!

    ya, that collection is all for my main mage on sonoma.
    is is scrolled to 120 in all skills.
    the stones hold all 55 skills currentlly in game.
    of those skills they are ALL to the GM level.
    if they are able to go to 120 then i think most of them are there.
    i think there are a couple that arnt, and that was because my mage allready has those skills 120'd on him at present, so i figured id leave them at 110 on the stones so my other toons could use them if they needed.

    hardest skill: taming. no token, no scripting, taming is by hand the hardest to do, but most rewarding.
    easiest to do: pretty much ever skill in game is easy once youve done it 20 times, you find the short cuts and such. i dont think any skill is really hard or easy anymore, i measure it more in how much its gonna cost me to get it done and if i have the funds available or resources available to do it.
    most useless - never come off the stone again skills... forensics, taste id, item id - those three i never used after GMing.
    other like herding ive put on in the late of night when no one is watching and i cruise around fel dungeons moveing all the spawn to the entrance.... hehehe

    all though i completed working all the skills a long time ago, getting them finally onto full soulstones took all the work and time to get.

    but like Taz stated, by far my BIGGEST accomplishment is making all 21 of my toons on every shard.
    think i have one or two shard left to get to, but overall i have most of them done.

    there is nothing like the feeling of being able to log into any shard in game and pick any template i want and just go play.

    what do i credit all that work too?
    my job, hahahhahahaa, if i wasnt able to kill time at work playing UO i wouldnt have 1/10000000000 of what i have done to date.
    as it is ive spent many of my entire days playing UO and avoiding work like the dirty habit it is!

    i have a challange for you all, come to my castle on SONOMA and walk through it, if its not the BIGGEST lag hole youve ever been in then ill eat crow.
    besided the soulstones doing thier dance, 2 of the side turrets have every library/musem reward on them.... all turned on, hehehhee, not to mention every lock down in the castle is full of stuff i find, steal, rob, murder to get over the last 11+ years.

    here's a old map of how to get to it from back when it was part of the 'Township' that was there, coordinates are same, deco is different.

    here is a interesting nugget of useless information that is funny.

    on ATL my 120 disco tamer carries instraments made from....... guess.....

    Tazar, back from when i did my FIRST shard expansion.

    its like a OCD magnet that makes all us sick people drift together in some sick.... thing....

    and sorry, yes, i forgot to say i have a some extras stones.
    those are for switching skills around.

    not to mention i have about 80 soul stone tokens bound to that account.

    and thats just THAT shard.
    and just THAT account.

    my other 2 accounts have a bunch of souls stones as well.
    and on most other shards i have stones as well.
    best damn thing to ever enter our game, soul stones are.

    ya know what they should make, they should make something so that when all 55 skills are braught together on soulstones bound to one account they should like BOOM all become a tower that is a soulstone.

    hehe.

    Poo is the reason I'm working on so darn many tamers on so darn many shards. Once he told me his "mage on every shard" story, I had to try to do something similar with tamers. LOL

    I told him the other day that I might stop playing in a few months to save some money and what did he do? Start nagging me about all my characters on Sonoma that don't have vet status yet. I guess he won't let me leave UO unless and until I get them up to snuff and stop bringing down the guild's vet total. And we still have to finish our shard tour...which means playing catch-up to Poo because he's already putting finishing touches on characters on shards where my tamer's the only character that's had any work done on it and she's still only in the 50s for taming.

    Oh well....he keeps us all motivated and playing and laughing, that's for sure. I know I'd have left long ago if not for the wonderful folks (Poo included) that I play UO with now. We enjoy ourselves on Sonoma, but also have a very good time popping up on other shards to do stuff, even if our characters on the other shards are not completely finished or quite up to snuff with their gear.

    :D

    i dont remember exactlly when or where i was, it must have been test center, or maybe even a free shard for that matter.... cant recall, but it was a looooong time ago.

    at any rate, you were able to dye clothes like what we have as the new X-mas boxes.

    all swirlly colors and such.

    it was a riot of colors.

    like pac-man puked all over the place.
    it was crazy.

    trust me, after seeing that i have never ONCE complained about the toko dyes!!!

    Poo I agree about the Tokuno Colors...... I don't care to each his own..... beauty of the swampy armor?? It breaks. Such a waste of a charge....

    As for the soulstones.... I'm green with envy.... If I had the time and money I know I too would be among you and Tazar with the OCD problem....

    Trust me my guildies will tell you I'm insane with the working skills. I have 8 accounts and have been working skills for years.... log in once in a while work all my skills trying to "finish" all the characters on all the accounts.... however there are 2 accounts that I've been feverishly working to have EVERY skill available in game at least to GM if not 120..... Though I often thought Begging was one of the worst...... right up there with Taming and poisoning..... I've yet to GM it.... and I know I've GMed Taming at least 4 times.....

    As for the doing every shard..... I once heard a story about a couple who had challenged each other.... they would chose a shard and work 5 templates to 7x GM..... first one to finish all 5 characters won.... but I believe they had templates..... Like mage, Thunter, Tamer, and some dexer and archer combo or something...... bard..... at any rate I had heard that long ago....... often I have dreams of at least having a couple of workable templates on EVERY shard..... perhaps a mage/Tamer and an archer..... Could even do a mule.... but that would be work.....

    But I still have "goals" to accomplish in the game..... Like getting all my characters "finished"... so way to go Poo and Congrats!

    Well now that right there is pretty cool looking......
     
  46. Poo - I know how long some of the skills I'm working take just to GM them! That's one heck of a collection! nice work.

    Now, I would like you to see about crafting 1 of everything in the following skills: Blacksmithy, Tinkering, Carpentry, Alchemy and Inscription. <cackles>

    Another few weeks to do that I would think.

    Nice work there Poo

    I think I remember a way back post you made when you started your collection of stones and you listed all your skills that you had gotten to 120 and that you was working on gm'ing your beggar at the time.
