    Got a lot of robes or other fodder preventing anyone access to your goods? This only serves to slow me down a bit. I shall however reveal said goods with my skillful hands...

    I felt somewhat bad about this one, but better me than someone who wouldn't be willing to sell the weapons back to you!

    Former owner, if you're reading this... feel free to contact me via forum PM if you wish to purchase your weapons back

    Best regards

    Another short story:

    I was snooping Morbius when all of the sudden AragornOCT appeared on my screen, marking a rune to Vesper bank

    sword-1.png

    I decided to leave Morbius alone to continue flirting and pursue my new target

    sword-2.png

    Not a bad weapon, I intended on stealing it but then had to do it faster than expected as the Aragorn was about to recall away:

    sword-3.png

    Well if you're going to rush me I'll accept the challenge :)

    sword-4.png

    He followed me through my gate but was a good sport about it. Props!

    Back to our lovebirds at Vesper bank. The conversation was getting hot and steamy. So much so that it was fair to say that local town crier was no longer the wettest person there! ;)

    With not much to choose from, I settled on the ID wand.

    My gate travel spell fizzled a couple of times, but we eventually got out of there unscathed!

    Kindest regards!

    This one happened so fast I had to replay the video a few times to gather the proper screenshots!

    ocllo-coins-1.png

    Someone in Ocllo is generously leaving gold coins on the ground. Who could be responsible for such generosities?!

    It wasn't our friend in the orange robe -- he was broke!

    ocllo-coins-2.png

    I think it was our friend Hilda here. Well, allow me to show my gratitude!

    Cheerio!

    I had just gotten back from vacation and was hoping to get in a few hours of fishing for @Zyler 's tournament. I logged on to find what every fisherman hates to see... all his characters logging in at the docks. Between work and travel I'd forgotten to refresh the ship! I spent the next little bit restocking, buying a new boat, launching it, marking a rune. That's when I saw Innocent Crafter steal my sword and I could not find the key to the ship. I thought for sure that's what you were after. I could care less about the lost sword, or even the lost boat, I just didn't have time to miss out on the tournament!

    Slick fingers Innocent. Very fast theft!

    An eventful night was had as the Warden of the lands. I was able to track a group of poachers not far from my very own home. Knowing this island particularly well gave me the advantage of sneaking up on them unnoticed. I quickly discovered a platinum coin on one of the hunters but decided to hold off until the chest had been unlocked and picked clean. To my fortune, the leader dropped a satchel on the ground that he proceeded to load up with goods to include a platinum coin. Knowing that I could take the coin without revealing, I snagged it while he was distracted and dodged a reveal spell. Remembering the location of the platinum coin in his pack allowed me to stealth away, mount my ethereal, and run by to steal the last coin from his pack as he was fighting a monster.

    Some time later in the night during a routine patrol of a well known vendoring area, I spied two wealthy Tamers shopping for what appeared to be gargoyle shovels. Another patron alerted them that he had stepped on me but some fancy footwork allowed me to evade their reveals leaving them with a sense of security. As they gated to a large keep I had difficulty keeping my hands steady as I could only imagine what sort of adventure awaited us and the newly arrived pack of dragons. The female leader seemed to be reaching into the confines of the home as I had her pack open. Suddenly a red scroll appeared, leaving me with no choice but the remove it as quickly as it had come. On foot and defenseless to the pack of beasts, I opened a gate to a fellow thieves drop home and placed the scroll over the wall for my retrieval. A happy ending was had for all as these hunters were able to purchase the scroll back for 40,000 and continue their adventures.

    LOL that's great. I remember I almost got paralyzed by your friend when I tried to steal that GHeal wand off you. You moved away just in time for me to be out of range of it, leaving me out in the open and empty handed :p

    Sometimes I am fortunate enough to be around when others are doing treasure maps. That was the case when I got to witness a party of 3 complete a level-5 treasure map.


    treasure-3.png

    I grabbed a seat and watched from the sidelines as the courageous treasure hunters made quick work of the monsters that guarded the chest.

    treasure-4.png

    I edged closer to the chest as the last few monsters died.

    treasure-5.png

    Once the chest was unlocked and its trapped removed, I hastily ransacked the chest for any valuables. Once I heard a platinum 'clink' as it entered my backpack, I departed ways and spawned an additional daemon to keep my friends busy.

    treasure-6.png

    It seems my enter gate macro would not work as a daemon mind blasted me in the face during its delay. It was so slow that one of the party members entered my own gate before me. I joined them just as soon as I could to deposit the stolen booty.

    treasure-7.png

    With my enter gate macro now working, I hopped into the gate once more, returning to my original crime scene while the party of 3 lingered around my home. It's a shame that I felt safer around the dragons and daemons than around my own home. I continued walking in the shadows until my criminal flag wore off.

    treasure-8.png

    Until next time...
