    I'm sorry the Cupid doesn't chop your head off and then rez kill you, maybe Draconi and co. will implement that next year.

    Would have been cuter to have the Cupid be a Mongbat.
     
  23. Having the wife sitting next to you playing the game is a lot of fun! If you could hear us talk while we play LOL.

    me: "get that dam thing off my $$$ will you love" [I know all about the filter here]
    her: "one sec sweetheart, I'm looting this gold here first"

    Classic,I play with my hubby too, and sometimes ours isn't so cleaned up as yours lol.

    My second issue is I wanted to give these to friends and they only say one thing and it looks kinda well.....strange for me to be giving my friend thats a girl IRL something that says "To my one true love" or "Ori's heart throbbing for Laura" I love my friend dearly but yea not like that.

    you can type any message you like in the cupid's speech, Oriana... or were you talking about the cards?

    and Spree, once the heart is targeted for someone that name remains on the heart, but it appears that you can call up the cupid at any time by selecting the 'preview' option... so I guess what we have is a cupid that can pop up at any time and say anything you edit into it

    I SO wanna see this happen!!!!

    that is the coolest idea EVER!!!!!! :)
     
  31. goes back to the coding of the first V gifts we got. It had bacon in it as well so has become a UO item to pass the pork, besides its blessed, think of this, tamer or crafters can carry a few pieces of it with them, when they die they can still feed pets.

    but this bacon I understand is not blessed, dang!
     
  32. I remember thinking how random it was that I got bacon for V'Day the first time as well.

    :coco:

    I think it started out as a coding mistake, but everyone found it so funny it stuck around and became tradition.

    I want to say that it was Wilki that accidentally coded the bacon into the V-day gifts a few years ago. Everyone thought it was a hoot so they've been doing bacon ever since.

    Too bad it's not blessed. I lost all my blessed bacon...

    lol I though conversations like this were only going in my house. lol


    A saying coined by a Dev member has stuck in my head for years and I can't for the life of me remember who it was..
    " Nothing says love like a slice of bacon!"
    Needless to say that on Valentines day in this house we have bacon :)

    Is it just one line of text, or several, you can put into the cupid?

    If multiple lines, I want to do one that sings (at least a verse of) Tom Lehrer's "Masochism Tango".....

    Oh man, I got to dig out The Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy and put some Vogan Poetry on my Cupid. Players in hearing distance should drop to the ground and writhe in pain.

    BTW, I actually did it - fit 2/3 the song (about the first 1/3 & last 1/3) into the 12 lines, then went to the Ilshenar Oaks spawn, and played it as a Valentine for Oaks and Silvani - during the champ fight...

    I did a little testing. A thief can use the cupid to their advantage. You can use cupid to block movement walking though it takes stamina, it cant be killed, it can be opened while hidden and be used as a calling card "ha ha ha I just stole your stuff" or " If you are seeing this you are dead don't bother to come back because I looted your stuff, Love Rico La"
