She normally posts pretty regularly but I haven't seen her post lately. Is she ok?
Yeah. That is a little Strange. No posts in over a month. I hope she's OK.
now when you are mentioning it.
I really hope she will join as few smiths really soon.
I was wondering that myself. Perhaps smithing and mining finally tipped her over the edge and the computer turned into bits of metal and glass under a sledgehammer.
Or is Zooman breaking out into the big time?
Thank you to all of you.. weirdos. (And non-weirdos, just to make the distinction. Sort yourselves out as you will.)
I've been in a funk about the inactivity of UO in general.. but trying to be positive about it. Okay.. actually it was more "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Which isn't always my motto, but since it's been SO long since I saw any positive movement for our beloved game, I stifled myself.
I got all perked up about the runic changes, then it got put on hold.. then there was some small hint that they wouldn't be as good as first posted.. I got grumpy. When I get grumpy, I get.. um.. jabby. Like sniping from the sidelines with the crosshairs moving randomly jabby. Anyone and everyone is in the line of fire.
I've not quit playing at all.. I just peeked into the forums from the sidelines for too many weeks. "Anything need dealing with? Nope. Anyone abusing the ROC? Nope. Fine. I shall wander off and mutter to myself for another week."
There was one big ole thread about folks that don't mind scripters that sent me into a funk about how our game is not policed. Other games don't tolerate this sort of stuff.. why does this one? Eh.. I've just seen the resurgence of the script miner IN guard zones, and the complete lack of GM support to ban them.
I love you guys, and I genuinely love playing Ultima Online. Sometimes it's just hard to find a way to express it without punching someone, you know?
Well I am glad you are ok and still playing UO.
and the runic changes is now on TC as Im sure you already know.
Intensities seems to be the same as first propsed so that should make you very happy and me less happy.
The bad thing is that according to Jeremys post the 10 sec delay is back,hopefully a typo from her part.
It sounds like Draconi & team are working on something to deal with the scripter-types. Whether they'll actually get anywhere, who knows.
In any case, yer actin' like us smiths and miners can't take a punch.
I've never seen a smith that can't take a punch after a dozen scotches.
Ah know you folks are tough! Just didn't seem fair to go around being crabby at everyone just cause UO isn't enforcing the rules.
BUT.. I have just gone and bought more bagballs to deal with the cheating lil buggers. I imagine that I will have to redouble my paging efforts during Valentine's day, cause they posted that the blackrock elementals will be turned off. In fact, I kinda encourage everyone to do so.. that may be the point.
Much as folks have beeched about the blackrock critters, they HAVE knocked down the casual scripter sorts. Now the sophisticated scripts.. it just about takes a little team to deal with. Or a GM that understands what a scripter actually is.
So during this hiatus from scripter consequences, I suppose I will be seeing some familiar scripter names begin to reappear. Hopefully not for all that long.
Oh look, I found Lilac. <points>
I have been thinking the same thing about the Valentine pass from BREs. I have stocked up on bagballs. I have a couple people ready to drop by some certain spots the automatons seem to adore. I think I could get more help, but Sonoma Fel has truly disintegrated into a <insert word for a certain male appendage> envy contest since FL 'invaded' a few weeks ago. Most are busy marking their territory and what-not.
What can I say, boys and their playthings.
Unfortunetly, we are recovering from an unplanned and unwanted disk format. I not only can't recall my ICQ password, I can't even remember what email account I set it up with. ICQ gone. Otherwise I'd get that shifty Lefty feller to help me out.
Back again after a 6 week RL situation with my dad. Hmmm come back for a pass on BRE's on Valentine's day I see. I'll bet I know a few spots a certain automated automation will be at on LS Fel and I'm sure Lilac knows who "it' is also. I'll check around and see if I can slow the mining operations for awhile or at least give 'it' something to think about.
Looks like they're policing something, finally. At least, the burned remains of houses with dummies burned in effigy seems to imply that they are.
Here it is on Sonoma. Too cool.
