*Wants another column adding to poll, to kill the people that are killing the people that are killing the monsters to get the books of truth*

Confused yet???

Lol

Only joking

I already got the redeemer and another 30 books, and I haven't actively gone looking for the books. I get 3-4 everytime i do despise spawn. So in the last week I've done maybe 15 Dsp's. Gotta love chaining Despise.............. your all welcome to come and raid Despise, if you have the balls!!!

I was oince in a red guild, we were a small close group. It was the thrill of the hunt that made it fun, we didnt do it for gold, scrolls (though thats always a plus) we did it for fun, we showed people respect and they showed us respect, some of them anyway.

I'm not really sure how that guild is doing these days, I have often thought of building another pk to join again but if pvp is as bad as people say then im not ready to listen to all the he said/she said, you are a cheater, my pixel penis is bigger then yours crap. I'd rather sit in my tavern and role play.

Well in all honesty, there is no honor among PKers. Now pvpers, yes. But PKers are your bottom feeders....

I guess I classify more as a PvPer because I don't often hunt blues. I usually end up killing them in battles when they're healing their red pals.

So I have no honor? Because I chose to play a certian style? But I guess things could have changed alot since I used to do it, just another notch on the item whores who have destroyed this game belt if you ask me.

There is a difference between PvPers and PKers. PKers kill helpless non-combatants and the like, PvPers take part in good battles, duels, fights among other PvPers. Whichever style you choose to play, that is up to you. I have no right to ever tell people how to play their game. I was just pointing out how it is.

I only kill to protect my ore and leather so I can make goods for the people who like to kill for fun ( or sell them goods at high prices) :)

I am with alot of folks here. T2A "PK's" left a bad taste in my mouth, after getting killed in my first five minutes of creating a character, and continually after that. It wasn't until the Trammel split that I actually got to do something without getting killed by another player.

PK to me means that I am fighting a monster, get down to 25% life, and someone comes along and Corp Por's me. Not very fond of PK's, and never do it myself. Something about how cowardly they must be to have to wait until I am low on health, and distracted, to kill me. Just so they can loot my GM iron armor and the 1k gold it took me 2 hours to get. In this sense, I would NEVER PK.

Not that I have not met NICE reds, just the majority of them were cowardly punks who cared not a whit that they were chasing away paying subscribers, thereby causing UO to decline. (ack, rant!)

PvP has the air of a consensual contest. Like if you are in Felluca, you consent to the fact that you will get ganked. Don't mind this, you assume a risk when you go there, and if you get killed, you need to get more skilled. In this sense, I PvP(ed) to get scrolls, defend my miner, and kill cowards.

i couldnt be arsed to read the 4 pages but...

What is pk these days anyhow? its just like orange v orange... but its blue and red.

When I did pk i did it for the kick of it and to piss people off... (being honest now) I was in the most hated guild of EU and most respected for our pvp skills aswell when on blue/oranges. 140wars +. Then pking needed a bit of planning since no one wanted to take statloss.. and no you dont macro off that many kills we had.

But as i said.. My reason to pk was to make people frustrated and I had a laugh of it. Guess i was young and dumb as many of the pks these days are.
Good memories tho ;)
