    He's a good guy. This is Felucca and he can behave however he wants. No judgement from my side. Above written is just a tale about how he got my attention and got some retribution.

    He is also very professional about the heist and wanted to buy his weapons back etc, so really nothing personal against Fatty Mike.

    Gratz on the check. You could have actually dropped the check in your main bag and it would have stayed there, even after a guard whack.

    Any idea what the deeds in the bags with the plat trophies were?

    On this fine day, the Warden found himself wandering the forest surrounding Skara Brae. To his surprise, he spied a blue moongate amidst the trees with not a soul in sight. With not a moment to waste, he was off at a sprint where he concealed himself in the shadows just before jumping into the portal. These were familiar lands he thought as he caught a glimpse of the PS rune library but a few meters away. Inside were two lone dragons that seemed to be awaiting their master. Tracking made it clear that there was another inhabitant of the library that was hiding in a corner. Pockets didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes for the dragon master to return, promptly sending a moongate to a new location. Once inside, it became apparent that this was a band of treasure hunters hoping to lay claim to a fine prize. The dragons made quick work of the many poison elementals and soon secured the chest for their master. Pockets grew worried as they emptied the chest's contents with no sign of any platinum coins. As they got down to the last items, the coin's reflection gave it 's location away as it fell into the man's pack. With no time to second guess himself, Pockets quickly relieved the man of this coin and jumped through a moongate of his own to island of Serpents.

    Lord British had been concerned with a shortage of poached eggs in the taverns of Sosaria. With no other option, he commissioned The Warden to solve the issue. After scouring the lands high and low, he caught wind of a tangy scent just north of the Britain graveyard. Following his nose, he soon pinpointed the origin of the smell to a small stone tower. Quickly slipping the locks, he allowed himself into the residence where he discovered the stolen goods. With a little leg work, all of the eggs were removed from the residence and soon returned to the big man himself.

    Didn't get a picture as it happened pretty fast, but snagged a red christmas scroll from an unsuspecting tamer :D

    Probably my highest value steal ever

    Who on earth would allow such a thing to happen to them?!

    Glad to know it was a red one (I've been lucky with those so far)....it was so fast I didn't even get a chance to glance over and see what color.

    Having player run vendor houses in the guard zone seems pretty unfair to every other player run vendor on the shard. Maybe they shouldn't make it even safer by not letting any of the player bought NPC vendors call the guards. Its like those houses have a guard of their own right on the front steps.
    Just a thought.

    @Raag74 Just some of the intricacies of thief life on UO:R. It can be dealt with and allowed for :)

    @Kiryana I'm not sure what's up with all your exclamation points but lets just break down what I said and how you are mistaken on every point.

    Having player run vendor houses in the guard zone seems pretty unfair to every other player run vendor on the shard. True - you are kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

    Maybe they shouldn't make it even safer by not letting any of the player bought NPC vendors call the guards. Its like those houses have a guard of their own right on the front steps. True - The player run vendors Kendall and Rhonna both will call the guards. You should try reading your journal to see who it was that called the guards.

    You said "The house in the security zone can not be put!" I never said they could be. You are aware that they exist aren't you?

    You said "you just have not fully acquainted with the rules of theft!" I have played a thief since 1998. There is a learning curve on a new shard with no clear info on thieving and changes to thieving in various patches, but i have been steadily educating myself by slogging through the years of posts.

    You said "Carefully study the issue of theft and everything will be fine;))) I see 250 of your dead bodies every day ..." First off, Stalker Alert! If you are seeing 250 of my bodies i must have made a few thousand successful steals.

    I have read though your hundreds of posts and know that you are a successful thief and house looter. You don't really know shit about me except my account is only a couple months old. You really come across as a very rude and condescending person assuming you know everything and I know nothing. Your private message telling me to learn hide and stealth and not run up on people. Hide and stealth were my first gm skills and how could you even think to know how much or how often i do so if you cant see me? Thanks for letting me know that its ok for me to steal low value items as practice but not to keep doing it. 2 months ago I had 1000 gold, Not everyone is running around in 3 million gold sandals. Value is relative



    @JimmyTheHand I know it can be dealt with and I wasn't even complaining about it as much for thieves as I was for other player vendors

    On a happier note. I love this shard

    @Kiryana I accept your apology. I already had respect for you. Not just from reading about you exploits but we actually had an interaction in town one time where you helped me. I knew then that you were one of the right people.
