What kind of quirks has your character developed over the years? Something they developed, not originally began with.

My bard (Abby);
1: Always has a pair of dice with her
2: Hates cows & milk
3: Has an unnatural obsession with diamonds

A penchant for ham, an unnatural obsession with colored crooks, and running uninvited through gates that people open.

Actually my original chr. had a story line about being an orphaned queen, her parents killed when she was quite young..and that story line became larger than life to the degree that even though she may have gold and her own *palace* now, she still can not pass up free things, be it wool off sheep for cloth, regs on the ground, always remembering being a starving new orphan queen and so it became her own weird quirk...never pass up anything that is as some gift of the gods out there upon her travels, wool regs on the ground, no matter ..it is there to use.. and always remembering having nothing at all quite humbling so she still whisks the *gifts* off the ground even though she can BUY anything now ...she won't ! :) Not if it is out there FREE as a gift from the gods.

I have NEVER bought cloth in 10 yrs of UO I must have a zillion wool in a stack in my place STILL ! ;) So I still have this quirky passion to never pass up a woolen sheep, I do not kill them ever but their wool is always taken. :) ALWAYS ! I dont even NEED wool cloth or yarn from wool , but I obsessively still fleece every one of the sheep I see out there every time.

As a young swordsman living on Ocllo with my mother I developed a creed of not killing any non-aggressive animals for the hides or meat for our table.

I gained in my skills only taking hides and meat from mongbats and other aggressive inhabitants of the island.

Many years later when I had to choose a profession I chose Chivilry, and have also added the Virtues. I also made a decision to never leave a hunt without making sure all the people at the hunt made it out, if not alive then to be sure that they where able to get back into the world and help in securing all the possesions that they may have lost during the hunt.

Little know fact: I like to drop books on NPC's at banks. Books with titles like "Headache", "STD's", hehehe. (Try it sometime)

Ostards only for Abby too!

Before I got the ethereal ostard, the color of the ostard had to match the outfit!

We should start a gang. Sort of like a motorcycle gang...:)

OOC
I'm on Sonoma and RP is not the best. But, I still RP all my characters. I figure that I can still have fun and that is the most important part. I have a young girl that has five uncles of distinct personalities. I guess they all are parts of my personality and I try to keep them distinct and to "push" them out a bit.

But, as to quirks; Darla's Uncle Trent, being a hardened warrior, tends to scratch diffent parts of his body at times *scratches butt*. I don't know where it came from, maybe the armor rusts and he doesn't care to bathe enough. Also, he has very low intelligence, so the occassional *grunt* pops out. Since I can put such things on macros, it can happen during combat, too.

Hmmmm

I have three things Gareth doesnt like and never does.

1. He never goes past a house and just has to go look at the decorations for atlest 20mins.

2. He never has the urge to rebuild parts of his home every two hours.

3. He never likes to buy and sell things at the bank and make lots of gold.

la la la la la..........

Never say never Gareth! *smiles sweetly*

I cannot pass up the opportunity to pick on Gareth, nor the ability he has to change his mind 11 times within a 10 minute time frame. I always heard it was women who could not make up their minds. Of course, once he starts on a course of action, he does stick with it, and he will bend over backwards to help anyone at the quirk of a finger if they are in need of help or have a good idea.

I also keep 2 stacks of bandages in my backpack, which I check each time I go to my rest in the evening. One stack must have 150 count and the other 100 count. I do not know how I decided on the numbers, but it is what they must be. I also cannot help but pick up nightshade or those regents on the floor of Despise. While I am not partial to magery, I know several who are and used to pass along these regents for them to use. Now with the 100% LRC suits, I have no reason to pick it up, yet I still will if it's near me.

They are evil little bastards.

The worse was when I can back home one day and one of my beloved friends had erected a large golden squirrel statue right in the front yard.

*gasp*

Kav likes to engage in consumption of alcohol, lewd jokes, and occassional womanizing to the point that he probably undermines his own authority.

Mouse, my young elven "acquisitions specialist" (read: "thief") child hates orcs. They're stinky. She's not strong enough to fight most of them, but she hates them all.

She's a protector of bunnies, and a collector of shiny things and cookies. She loves cookies.

Bright blessings!
