    Farmers should bank more often! Thieves are on the prowl during these events ha ha ha

    The battle field of the Valentines Day event becomes too much to bear for this tamer as she makes an escape before her dragons die:

    1.png

    Having not been able to fully inspect their belongings, I follow them into this gate. If nothing else, to figure out where they like to hang out!

    Oh ok, Britain stables. Some secluded area perhaps? I don't think I've been here. I have some trouble finding their body while their dragons are stacked on top of them. But no worries, our prey is tending to the wounds of her dragons and this gives me the time I need to find what I am after:

    After I inspect the very last bag and notice the coins, I simply cannot resist. I steal the 14 holiday coins while in the safety of this private area away from any guards or NPCs and flee the scene before this mighty tamer can summon the guards to smite me:

    4.jpg

    Unfortunately I am followed to my own small tower and I have to ban the unwanted guest for I am no match for a tamer capable of controlling 2 powerful dragons. Hit me up on IRC or something!

    Despite all of this, the identify of my victim has been concealed. Bank frequently. 14 holiday coins is a lot to me!

    Cheers

    Had my regs bag stolen from me right at server save while I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE at the Vday event! I couldn't beliebe it because I hadn't seen anyone for awhile. I really thought it disappeared at the server save, I was grabbing it and then it was just gone and so I doubled back twice to find it to no avail and low and behold, I bump into a hidden figure like 5-10 minutes later. Nice grab man, super stealth! Glad Helena and I we're able to kill ya but didn't get my shit back and thankfully didn't have any coins yet but nice job, so smooth! @Raag74 ;)

    Reading through these posts has been quite a lot of fun. I have definitely increased my personal and house security because of it. The only bad side effect is paranoia... I was transferring my AFK Plat other day and for the life of me couldn't find 10 of it.. I just knew one of you sneaky sneaks had somehow got me... I later found it in my secure drop bag in house.. whew.
    Keep up the good work!

    Seba.. you should have hid and marked a rune there.. might have been far more valuable in the long run than the HC. :)

    I think so too. I haven't spent any holiday coins this year, just couldn't resist stealing 14 at once. It's kinda rare to see someone hold that many

    Busy day today. Hope the screenshots speak for themselves. Too lazy to narrate

    Seems like a strange place to have breakfast and doze off but I appreciate the forbidden love scrolls being all bagged up for me.

    This is really nothing special, but theres a certain amount of satisfaction that comes with random stealing a pack until you get a rune book.
    Here is a detailed play by play.

    Some steals from tonight:

    First in Hythloth. Followed 3 pks into a gate to Buc's Den after they dirtnapped a PvMer hunting balrons

    Stationary PKs? My favorite! ;)

    Steal this fully charged greater heal wand and recall away!

    __

    Me and another thief have fun stealing from these two:

    ___

    This had me laughing pretty hard. I arrived to Shame Elder Gazers after a Beholder was killed. I was trying to be patient since I couldn't just open the doors to snoop them:

    upload_2019-3-2_0-17-26.png

    I was wondering if the pec meat and plat was still on them though. Unfortunately, they recall away, I assume to bank goods on them. But I at least use this timeframe to sneak inside with their tames:

    upload_2019-3-2_0-18-44.png

    I slammed teh doors shut as to conceal my presence. These little things matter. Less than 5 seconds later, Elinor is back to continue farming. I assume they have banked anything valuable so am not in a hurry now.

    upload_2019-3-2_0-19-12.png

    I begin snooping their backpack once they go into the adjacent room:

    upload_2019-3-2_0-21-54.png

    Just as I start to see something worth stealing, Goodfella shows up! It seems we are going to involuntarily join forces pretty soon:

    upload_2019-3-2_0-23-28.png

    upload_2019-3-2_0-24-42.png


    I manage to steal the T-Map before Elinor dies and make my own escape:

    upload_2019-3-2_0-25-53.png

    However, I did not realize that Goodfella is about to die too. I only noticed as I reviewed video footage of this encounter

    upload_2019-3-2_0-26-42.png

    upload_2019-3-2_0-28-18.png

    I guess if this was a perfect steal, I would have ended up looting both of their corpses. :x

    Later in IRC:

    It was a glorious day on UO:R. Lots of activity!

    No in process pictures, but snuck up on some people sitting around chatting at Serps Bank and snagged a nice little undead slayer.
