    So, I'm wandering through Luna looking for a bod book on my crafter. I'm not too worried, he doesn't have much of anything of value on him. It's right before server maintenance, I'm thinking there won't be anyone around. So I'm lolly gagging a bit, fixing my bow and salute macros.

    Well, some clown comes by, and attacks and kills me. My crafter has no combat skills, and is on foot, so absolutely no chance. I come back for my corpse, and he kills me again. The first beautiful thing about Siege, I can die as often as I want, and not worry about insurance gold.

    Well, I finally get back and recover what's left of my stuff. The only thing I lost was one decent piece of lrc armour. I wander off feeling a bit annoyed and resume my search for a bod book. I read in this forum there were some shops in Yew, so I go there.

    Wouldn't you know, I'm in the guard zone at the gate, when the clown comes out. Now he was an archer. And, you guessed it, he was still flagged agressor, and auto defended. "Guards!" *crunch* *death cry* Now I know, guard kills are cheap, but as I said, this character is completely defenceless, and he didn't start it.

    So I go over, and happily loot the corpse. Too much stuff for me to carry, as this is an undeveloped character, and not very strong, but I did get a couple of pieces of his faction armour, and some pots. Head back to the gate, a red comes storming out, I'm guessing it's him coming to get his stuff back. He attacks me, "Guards! *crunch* *death cry*

    I had to get my other character to loot him, and unfortunately, by the time I got back, someone had beat me to it, and the clown was there offering me huge amounts of gold to buy his stuff back. Which of course, being slightly cranky, I refused... :)

    Siege is truly, beautiful.

    You must have met the most ******** GZ faction attacker on Siege.. well done.. should be an easy 200k for you.

    If you want a BoD book, check Petra's Moonglow gate shop east of the gate, or Makoto's GIL shop north of the gate.

    There is a better shop in Umbra (Queen Zen's) but the directions aren't as straight forward.

    Sell the guy his gear back; depending on what items you got you should be able to clear enough to place a house;).

    Go to Umbra cross the EAST bridge, turn LEFT after ya cross the E. Umbra bridge, and go to the last row of homes, only 3 rows to the
    off the E. Umbra bridge, going back there, last row of 3 homes has all the ore behind em... The 18 x 18 home, with 40+ parrots atop the 4th floor with all the vendors in MYTH colors, Mythic Treasures, owner Miranda the crafter, sells bod books etc.

    Just do ALT N for 'all names', after ya cross the E. Umbra bridge & all them parrot and vendor names will fill your screen full up, probably the moment ya get off the E. Umbra bridge ...follow all the NAMES ! :)

    In due time then, SELL all faction stuff back, it'll be gp $$$$ for ya to buy more bod books or maybe a house plot. :)

    It was keening, hit fireball got him guard wacked by yew (Even though he was a full screen away)

    Poor move not selling his stuff back could of made an easy buck (200k). The 3 things you managed to loot kind of funny you didn't loot more.. seeing there was a full faction suit with single pieces worth more than all you looted together. Oh well easy to replace didn't even have to do anything but drag another set from a box to the paperdoll to fix the suit.. factions items are a joke :p . Karma means nothing to a PK.

    Until Next time.

    P.S The only thing looted was the bag of regs seeing as I was low :p the single LRC piece was by mistake I apologize for looting it. Also the only reason you were res killed is because you res'ed so quickly I didn't even have time to see what you had on your body (as there was so much junk).

    You will learn to be more defensive against pks in the future I hope... and maybe one day become good enough to fight back. We will see.

    Siege is truly, beautiful.
