Ahhh, A Great start to this fine Sunday Morning....lol

    As I rise from bed this Sunday morning, and pour myself a nice hot cup of coffee.

    I sit down at my computer, and decide to play a bit of UO.

    Hmmmm, what should I do......I've got it!!! Im sure XV is out spawning as they usually are weekend mornings.

    So I select my character, shine up my boat, and proceed to the island spawn to have a look around.

    As my Tillerman and I cut through the cold morning sea, thoughts come to my head......hmmmm i hope I don't run into like a ton of them, after all my name isn't RoadKill.....

    As I swing into the bay, there is a ship parked by the beach, so I use caution.

    I park my boat on the far side and hop off on to the sand.....as I run down into the grass area above the alter, Im startled to see an energy vortex....I proceed south, and what have we here???

    A Corpse of a dead XV member......Im curious to see what he has on his body, hmmmmm... 2 power scrolls.....

    "I'm sure they must be 105's, but I check anyway.........1 105......and what is this??!!! A 120 Evaluate Intelligence???

    I look to my left, then to my right, as I slide the legendary scroll from his pack...I bolt back to the beach, and think of what to do next.

    Help Stuck?? Naaah, I'll lock it in the hold of my boat...no sooner do I place it in the hold, here comes the XV guild from outta no where....no time to lock the ship, I jump off and run for my life...

    On the run from Fazer and friends, I think to myself..."Well they got Rikktor up....mabey they wont look in the hold of my boat....I gotta get the hell outta here and come back on another boat and at least try to get it back"

    As I dart thru the sparkles, and the south end of the island, I remeber there was a stray boat back at the exit from fire. I hijack another boat and head back to the island.....as I arrive, I don't see anyone around....Thinking im in luck, I jump of the boat and hop back on to mine...

    No sooner do I do this, here they come again...OMG!!! CRAP!!...they try to field my boat, but I get luck and evade it as is tell the tillerman to kick it in and get us outta here!!!

    Exiting the bay, I think Im gonna make it!!!......uh oh...2 XV ships coming at me from the north!!!!

    Well needless to say....I didn't make it....but......the question still is, Is that scroll still in the hold??....I ditch the 2 XV boats (thank goodness the tiller man is 120 spirit speak).

    I keep sailling hoping the XV crew leaves me be.....I sail to the lighthouse, and park...I wait a bit to insure there is no one following....

    I float off the boat and make my way out of lighthouse as I call for a quick rez from a friendly guildmate....

    I make my way back to the boat.....crossing my fingers, I open the hold....

    I guess the question is, why would a no name XV member have a 120 eval on his body when they were on 4th level of the next spawn.....seems kinda odd

    Oh well,

    UOD for the win:)

    Nice find man!
  3. This sounds like a story of a blind squirrel finding a nut. But then again when XV is involved its not that shocking of a story. Congrats though and you did write a nice story to go along with the post. Good job.
  4. I found humor in that!

    Hehe, nothing against your guild man, it was just kinda a cool story. Question though, did you guys know I had that scroll from the beginning?

    You probably thought I had it on me and banked it when you guys chased me out of the sparkle, cuz your fleet called off the pursuit.....thought ya may have waited for my boat to hit dry land and check my corpse.

    Its things like this that keep me into UO. As I read your story I could imagine that being me doing everything I could to keep that scroll away from them. Those are the moments we all play for..when we are truly immersed in the game!

    Aww, I guess I missed the XV 120 Scroll give away. Panax, you beat me to it! Youl'd think they do a better job at advertising =/
  9. My first thought when this was icq'd to me was that xv can't count. The profound thought after that was that I would never have checked a hatch either.

    [/ QUOTE ] I agree great story telling, and would be nice to see more of this from you also.
    EDIT: Sorry Lady Lava I came back and read my post and saw I posted this to you would be nice to see more of this from you also. What I meant was I would like to see more posts like this from Cialis. I think I should not post after getting back from a wedding shower that I had to much spike punch at.
