    It is soooooooooooooooooo annoying when they refuse to stable a pet cos "you don't have enough gold, not even in thy bank account". What ?? 100mil in checks is not enough for my pet's bed and breakfast???

    Don't quote me on this, but at one time I am pretty sure the stablemaster would keep taking 30gp every week until your bank box was empty of gold pieces, even when your account was inactive--they kept checks from the stablemasters so that your accounts characters wouldn't be completely penniless when resubscribing after an extended hiatus away from UO, simply because you left a bunch of pets stabled.

    The way I remember it, the stablemaster stopped taking gold from inactive accounts when the Devs made it possible to retrieve a pet from any stable, regardless of where it was initially stabled--the fact they don't take a check is probably just an overlooked "fix" that is no longer needed.

    But then again, maybe it IS still there for a reason--I don't give recurring access to any of my credit/debit cards IRL, why should the stablemaster have such in UO? It doesn't sound prudent. :mf_prop:

    If I remember right they tried to "fix" this a year or so ago and something went south with the fix and they took it out. I can't recall what was wrong exactly but I know that they did at some point try to fix it...

    makes me feel so dumb, every time. 15 years of dumb. and i never learn my lesson either. =P

    *run around into stable so i can actually see the stablemaster*
    'Sorry you have 125 million zillion gold in the bank but its in check form LOL! Thou dost not have thirty gold pieces in gold piece form on thy person or in thy butt or in thy bank.'

    *angrily runs to luna bank instead of recalling for some reason*
    *dbl click check*

    'Sorry your fckin bank is fckin full. We could only deposit: 0 and your check is still at 1000000. LOL"


    EM Mesanna in chat: 'OK thanks everyone for coming to the event, its over, sorry for the tamers that missed it trying to get their pets stabled and replaced LOL!"


    and how the heck would you go penniless? it is per real life week, not in game week, right?
    wouldnt it take thousands of weeks to kill out even a few mill at 30gp per animal?

    sorry, tuuvaak :)

    and I thought I was mad about it.

    yeah, I guess math is something like 30x53x10animals=around 16k per year for a full stable? that would leave me broke in ........


    *still counting*
