    You’ve journeyed through the darkness, vanquishing untold legions of corrupted spawn and vile undead intent on your utter destruction. You’ve seen wonders vast and terrible, walked through blazing rivers of fire, and even faced the most ancient of threats to two worlds. Your journey through the Stygian Abyss nears its completion, and indeed, you consider what untold wonders and wealth await your stalwart and unyielding hands.

    It would not be unusual for you to believe that at its heart, the blackened core of the Stygian Abyss, you should perhaps encounter your greatest foe. It would not, in any way, be unusual to believe you might stumble across some sort of Chamber of Virtue. No, you would not be thought misled to even expect the Codex itself! All of these things would be expected by anyone with a shred of reason left following their ordeals…

    But you would be Wrong!

    " More than 150 units have already been sold! Reserve your unit now! This special introductory offer won’t last long! Starting from 5,236,885,565.00 GP "

    Isn't EA just gonna crap when one of these dupers shows up on their doorsteps with 5.2Billion GP's and wants to know where their new home is and when they can move in.

    Nice try. 2000 tiles high, and let me guess no teleporters or elevators just stairs.

    I just LOVE the name Stygian Heights. Someone needs to copyright that before an agency even more "official" finds a way to use it.

    Likely a joke, but not the best one, given that there are people out there who claim to have that amount of money. (Whether or not they actually do is another matter.)

    There's also the fact that after Virtue Bears and Advanced Characters (the former of which seems to be defunct, and the latter is now commonplace), almost nothing seems like a joke unless and until you think to look at the date.

    I figure since it is April 1st this is a huge joke but if it isn't I have to ask EA Mythic... Did you not learn anything at all when you created the housing area in Luna?

    Maybe when the SA beta opens it will just a scheme to sell time shares in these fancy new condos. You join the beta and they lock you in a room with a sales person until you agree to buy. :scholar:

    Woot! Now I can finally unveil my devious plan :)

    I turned to the dark side a few months ago:
    First I hacked two cheaters' accounts and amassed well over 20B gold pieces.
    Then I scripted condominium placement on 50 accounts (a mere ~$650 USD).
    Now I can reveal that I am the proud(?) owner of 4 penthouse corners of the new Stygian Heights Tower. Even the don Trump would be drooling.

    So: Corner Penthouse Condo for sale: only 25B gp!!1
    (Buy two now for only 45B - contact my private line to discuss payment options for gold pieces, of course, wink wink)
     
  38. GET A JOB SLACKER!! :D
