muwahah... My PK hunter is progressing quite nicely... Only another two weeks and I should have enough skill to dispatch a PK'er in a handful of hits.

I don't have a whole lot of animosity at the PKers, its part of the game... A PK killer should be expected, despite I've never heard of one yet.

The 3rd episode in her new life, and this brings us to a place they call 'the solen hives'.

She had a tough day, she had been chased by dragons all day and now wanted to chase something herself. She headed down into the solen hives in the hope of finishing the solen quest for some solen powder. She popped down to see the matriarch and accepted the quest. On her way back up she heard a sound of battle, and fight was going on... She walked down a darkened corridor, stepping over strange mushrooms on the ground untill she saw him. A warrior, good and bold, slaying the queens. She sat hidden for a while watching him. He ran around carefully avoiding acid spills and never going down in health. She decided she would not win this fight and headed off to the tunnels of wind.

She colected her zoogi fungus pretty quick. As she was about to leave, a mage appeared. He appeard to jerk about as he moved, and when he did move it was very fast. She watched and stalked him. After a few minutes her chance came. 3 solen infiltraters appeared around him and nearly red lined him. He began casting heal, she cast pain spike, he got the heal off, red lined again, he began running. She took after him on foot trying to cast poison strikes, OUT OF RANGE! Cursing herself for not learning from the last attempted murder she ran after him hoping his con would let him down. He invised himself next o another 4 infiltraters. They all targetted her, she shifted her arse pretty quick getting away from the 4 of them. After removing them from the area she went back looking for this mage. He had gone completely. She didnt find any invisible targets. Infuriated at her loss she skulked off to grab some pitchers of water and inish her quest.

On they way back through she saw the warrior, still fighting queens. She stalked through the tunnels to watch him for a short while. This time she mounted her ethy and sat in wait. The last two attempts had failed largely because she was out of range when on foot. She watched for 10 minutes and he didnt seem to lose health at all. Then he had a difficulty. The solen queen called 2 of her minions in. They both spat poison, his health dropped rapidly, he began to run and ran straight into out stealthy girl while she was invised. He stopped still for a moment, her heart pounding she knew this was her chance!

She started off with the pain spike, no good his heal had already worked, he ran for a moment still on low heal as she followed it with a corpse skin then a poison strike, another heal, but his health was going down. He ran fr the exit of the hives with our girl in hot pursuit. Not only was she keeping pace with him she was moving faster than him! She cast another poison strike nailing him this time! Summoning a few pixies and imps to deal with the local solen workers that didnt want to leave her alone she walked over to claim her prize.

1k gold, a bag of sending with no charges, and 300 zoogi fungus. It was a satisfying kill with a nice reward.

Today she learnt a lesson once again that she would have to stick by in the future. It was hard keeping pace with people when your on fott and they are mounted. She learnt this lesson last time. She had now learnt it again by missing that mage. When she mounted up for the last kill she succeeded. The thought also occured to her, perhaps bolas might be handy for them times when you just cant mount up quick enough. Smiling to herself she headed off to the bank, getting ready to for another day of repeating the solen quest.

Episode 4

She had woken up early the next morning, and had gone scouting the depths of a few dungeons, looking for tired and weary hunters. She got to the bottom of one particular dungeon to find a group of three red characters with a four blue tamers tagging along killing many many many hundreds of monsters. She observed them quietly from a distance. They seemed to summon more more and monsters by killing more more of them. Intrigued by this she sneaked around, watching thier health all the time. Looking for an easy kill.

She stealthed near a tamer, she got revealed 5 tiles away! She jumped and hid immediatly. The tamer carried on killing monsters but 2 reds began escorting the tamer. She sneaked around looking for the other blues. She watched the other tamers, wiping the floor with many creatures with thier dragons. They cleaned out an area and moved on. She stealthed after them, and again to her horror, was revealed 5-6 tiles away!

She decided to move as far back as possible and ust observe from a distance. They battled valiantly untill finally, an obscenely powerfull monster appeared. It killed 2 reds straight away. The third red ran around repeatedly casting holy light (which is all he did for the previous half an hour by the way). The tamers set thier pets onto the vicious monster and beat it down to within an inch of its life. The cu sides and wyrms lashed into the beast. As the wyrms began dying she noticed something... the tamers were all dead! Damn this beast who did her work for her!

She saw the ghosts running to one side, the champion was felled by the remaining Cu and the holy light loving red. She stalked after the ghosts. The red holy light lover appeared and came over to the group of fallen tamers. Our girl suddenly got a dastardly idea.... Stealthing over next to the holy light fan she readied herself. She saw the words 'dium prosta'. A light shone from the red and the 4 tamers awoke. She cast her own spell, a wither! In a split secound all four blues were dead and so was the red holy light lover! Our girl was over the moon! She just scored 5 kills and was about to loot a whole champs worth of powe *WHACK THOCK KAPOW SMACK THWIP TWAP*!!!!

Two bake kitsunes appeared next to her beating her into the ground. She of course died in a flash. The kitsunes reserected thier fallen comrades and disapeared back into the shadows. She was a shortly after left a lonely ghost as the warriors, tamers and mages ran off with thier spoils. Our girl stalked off out of the depths of the dungeon and headed home, alone and no richer than before.

She sat thinking about the night, and as always reflected on what she had learnt. Well, first off, she now knew tamers didnt reveal her from 8 tiles away, she must have stalked past the ninja kitsunes and they revealed her. The lesson she takes away with her today, is that shes not the only stealther around. If she is revealed when not near another person, something else must have revealed her. Also worth noting, while she is stealthing around stalking prey, she has no idea if anyone is stalking her prey, defending her prey from the shadows, or even stalking her. A lesson well learned im sure youll agree!

Episode 5 Demons & Dragons

Today she had decided to wander off and hope to raise her fame. She had camped demons in ilshenar for a while, nice and safe, no folk to attack, nobody for her to attack.... Lets say she was bored snotless pretty quick.... She debated other place to kill demons. She tried wind, then rememberd she needed magery to enter. Sulking at the mages inside she stalked off to find somewhere else to hunt.

She hopped into destard on the off chance someone was slaying monsters at the back of the dungeon. No such luck, after running the gauntlet of dragons she found many corpses, a few ghosts of other people, a few piles of gold on the floor, and what remained of a dead champion. She was getting frustrated... She ran the gauntlet of dragons again, running all the way through, shooting out of the entrance of the dungeon, only to be greeted by a group of champers that promptly twatted her. Groaning at her stupidity for running when she could have stealthed out nice and unnoticed she tantrummed and headed off looking for a wandering healer.

Her night was not going well....

She thought of other places to hunt, then rememberd, fire temple had demons! She stalked off to the fire temple in felucca to have a mooch abot and grab some fame. She arrived to a shock of finding a couple of dragons at the front entrance! She set off at a dead sprint untill she was far anough away to hide. She then crept back in, past the dragons, safe in the knowledge that seeing as there were by the front gate they wouldnt bother her. As she crept up the steps she heard a sound of battle, a warrior belting seven shades of horned leather out of the demons in the temple. This guy looked realy strong taking two to three demons at once without a blink. Grinning to herself she wonderd what hed do if both dragons respawned nearby....

She headed back to the front gate and with some heavy abuse of poison damage based spells she mnaged to take down the dragons by the gate. It took her a while but she took them down together, hoping they would both respawn at the same time. She sneaked back into the temple to find the warrior struggling to kill a dragon and a demon. She moved close to him and sat waiting, watching his health. The secound dragon hadnt appeard where the warrior was but the lone one was doign a good job of hurting him.

There was a sudden flash of fire, the demons were casting on him and the dragon took a chunk out of his armour, me moved slowly away from the dragon, his health jumped up then the dragon took another bite and it dropped again. She knew he was weary from the battle and must have had little to no stamina, she saw his health hit a real low and let out a word of death, it took a moment but he couldnt run away, he was to tired! 'Kal ort por!' he cried, but it was to late, the spell found its target, he fell to the ground. She ran over, swiping her small prize of a bag of sending (12 charges) and 8k in gold. The dragon roared at her, the demons glared, it was time to run!

As she sprinted out of the temple she passed a rather pissed off looking ghost that swore at her a few times before heading off looking for a healer. She didnt like his tone of voice, theres no need for that sort of language!

She headed off home to bank her spoils and think about her night. She sat and reflected on her misadventures. The first thing she had to think about was the kill she had made. She had used her brains this time, didnt take much thought but she was happy with the kill all the same. There was method of spawn manipulation here. It ws something shed have to remember, if monsters were missing from an area it was possible somene has manipulated the spawn. Something worth remembering she decided. Now, despite only having known kills, and less deaths, she had infact died a lot mroe times than she let on, she had also gotten a few more kills too, but nothing of intrest of course. Tonights death though was a repeating mistake. She had dropped out of hiding and began running a few times when she loses patience going somewhere. This is something she had to stop doing. Hopefully she could learn from tonight and she wouldnt do it again. At least we hope......

btw, i read somewhere you were contemplating bolas to deal w/ runners.
Bolas work GREAT
you might also want to think about ninjitsu on the temp.
If theres room...necro is cool and all but...imagine ninja being able to stealth 2x as fast (when in dog/kirin form)
Come out of form, throw bola (easily set to uoa hotkey use item type) and works with toggling the new targetting reticle and a client based last target.
Start bola, go into form, pick ur target (and get him on last target w/ reticle), then wait till ready.
Go out of form, target bola, go back into form, run if needed to keep in line of sight....3 seconds later poof they on foot, and u finish em off w/ deathstrikes or what ever =0

Question, is this stealther red? Or do you prey on reds? I was wondering that.. If your char is a trammy built for fun, then killing blues would turn you red and then being red would make him not a trammy..oh man, I've confused myself.

Red at the mo, murder count 5 and logged in for 10 hours without killing a blue so hopefully i can get this character blue again heh. To be honest, i just stalk around, if the opportunity turns up i go for it. I was trying to keep her in tram the other day by sticking to ilshy heh. Shes been red three times so far and every time got her back to bluebie status. This is her fourth time red, and this time i swear im leaving her at brit for the next 6 days while im at work to get her back to murder count 0 :grin:

She is a tramy character, i built her for hunting monsters but shes continously been told to feck off cause people dont want a necro around. Oh god you should have seen folk when me and another necro were sat at twisted weald animating lich lords a few nights ago. All we could see was EV's everywhere at swoop, Cu's being trained on pixies trapped on rocks, and crafters dropping crap everywhere training on satyrs. We both walked to swoop, between the 2 of us we got 6 lich lords animated and 10 midgie swarms. OMG... never heard so much whining in all my life!!! We didnt intend to kill satyrs or pixies, just sort of happened, but christ i thought id killed some of the players mums or something the amount of bitching that went on! With regards to the other necro, she dont realy care about the whiners, shes happy to maul any satyr or trapped pixie she sees intentionaly. Power to her after all the whining we got the other night.

Its because of that sort of thing that she got the sort of *consign her to the unused character list* or find another purpose for her. She found another purpose, she still hunts all over the place, but to be honest, i use her more cause i like killing folk in fel with her. Shes 3*120 so dont want to delete cause i cant afford powerscrolls for soulstone :)

Dang, that is one awesome idea, goin into swoops and animating dead.. hehe.. I gotta try that out. Too bad I did away with my griefer. Stealth up, animate swoop, stealth til another worthy dead creature pops out, and do it again..

I have 1 red character, but I completley suck with it. Its a necro/mage, and she is only good for group activities which is why she is red, I would have never done it alone. I think shes at like 35/40. I suck with remembering 80 macros. So I guess I'm not allll that bad with it, just surviving ganks sucks. I can usually stay alive if not alone or getting hit from just 1 person. My new chiv/mage Ive been working on, I have been fighting crap like OLs and using pvp combo types on them, trying to get them memorized, and quicker. My problem before was not healing, and just trying to be the last one standing, now I am gettin better at it.

I hate the fact that I had to resort to an archer..My swdsman was great for the longest time, well not great, as I die alot, but the template was good enough. But when ML came out, and people were dropping everyone in 1 hit, I decided to try it out, but not until WAY later after wod and bow damage were dropped.

haha WoD sucked when it first came out, silly amounts of damage being kicked off in that one spell!

I still like spellweaving as a skill, got it on 3 out of 5 characters on my main shard and use it on my other shards too. Great skill :)

We didnt intend to grief anyone at swoop though, was just a case of all we could see was a mass of EV's. If mages will keep casting thier *attack anything* summons, why shouldnt necros? Is it cause they dont take control slots on necros? Is it cause we smell of dead things? I dunno, we just saw the EV's and ust thought 'hey lets summon some random critters ourselves'. No grief intended there, but alas, we are necros, we are there to be shouted at.

*First time logged in for two weeks so been a gap here between storys heh*

She had been stalking around yew moongate, watching and seeing who were good killers and who were bad killers. Some of the gate's reds impressed her greatly and earned her respect. Not a single blue did though. She was quite appaled at one point when a single red seemed to herd four blues around the moongate. She watched as a few folk there ran through the gate for a rez. She followed through and watched a few people dart to a healer and return to the living.

She was quite stunned by the speed at which a number of wussys blues from felucca based (HAHA) guilds appeared and performed instant kills on the freshly rezzed. She thought to herself for a moment, yes there was money in this. Farming insurance like these little gate humpers. Then a rather dispicable rez killer appeared in the guard zone and cried out something that gave our girl a bit of a shock.

The despicable one shouted 'thats lame'. Our girl was stunned to see her say this, especially seing as it was followed by 'thats f*ckin pathetic!'. Intrigued our girl listened on, had this girl turned over a new leaf? Had the dread lady become glorious lady?.... 'THATS MY F*CKIN JOB!!!'.... Ahhh there we were back to normality. She invited the girl to whisper to her. After a brief conversation, our girl gained immunity from the well known rez killer if shed help her kill the gate humper blue rez killers.

Our girl stood one side of the gate, while the despicable one stealthed across to the closest wandering healer. We watched with our spirit watching skills waiting for the reds to come looking for a rez.

One finally emerged, the red ran to the healer, he returned to life, the little group appeared at the gate, all casting spells hoping for a piece of insurance. The despicable one invised the red before they had a chance, our girl got all 3 of the group into heat of battle, they all darted into the moongate unable to go anywhere, both our girl and the despicable one began casting wither wither wither wither. Two of the gate humpers dropped, one ploughed straight into the despicable one and killed her in secounds. Our girl tried to hide, not a chance the blue was bearing down on her, she flung a bola and began running. Her health dropped, she had no mana from the withers. She darted around the gate, nearly dead trying to lock the blue up in tangle of undergrowth around the area. It was no good, she was nearly redlined!

Heart pounding she ran between a few snakes, it gave her a moment as he stopped behind them for a secound. She tried healing she gained 30 health, she then lost 30 health from a couple of harms. Crap it she thought, again nearly redlined she belted through the trees back towards the gate, hoping to go back through the undergrowth.

Then it happened, she was not going to die tonight. The invised red appeared, near full health, riding a mighty charger, and smashed into the blue gate humper. He dropped in secounds.

Our girl turned around grinning at the red. He rezzed our new friend, the despicable one that is. He then thanked us, and told us both if there was anyone we wanted dead, just tell him. After a few moments of conversation he shot through the gate and disapeared. From what i understand, the gate humpers didnt come back that night.

She learnt two small lessons from this. Wither can only take so much life from someone, and reds are friends, not food.. err enemys... sorry to much finding nemo...

Sorry our girl isnt leading such an exciting life as before, but we are needing some much needed time away from the lands of sosaria.


*edited for language. Ly, we like the stories, but gotta watch the language..*

Got three killers chasing our girl now, they got her at chaos shrine, im guessing 2 have hiding. They announced from this moment on our girl would be hunted, rez killed, ganked and griefed off the shard.

All that anger just cause we killed them at the gate? One wonders why nobody cried guards on us, and i also wonder why it got taken so personally... perhaps they dont like my association with my new found despicable freind?

That will keep you on your toes now! I like being the hated target. I managed to anger the largest guild on my shard and am hated by them all. I am usually the first one they target and kill now...

I recently retired a character that I hated playing. I went back to my old main, and re-did some stats and armor pieces to make him useable again, and have been doing fairly well. It was a basic chiv/swdsman. I used it for spawning for the longest time, and added some bushido. This char was known by this hated guild and now that he is back out, its back to being the hunted..

Last night this guild was holding the fire entrance with a constant stream of withers and meteor swarms, I managed to get by their defenses and had them chasing me into the dungeon. I focused my attention on just 1 of them, hoping to take him down with me. Amidst the insane amount of de-buffed spells thrown on me, I managed to take him down, heard the justice jingle, then my own death cry. We both spoke as ghosts for a few. He is one of the few of that guild that are cool with me, we gave eachother good-games, and went on our ways. I lost the same amount of gold I gained, so it was a balanced death in my opinion. I finally got my knight of justice back off that kill.

I am the type to run into a huge mess of reds and swing away hoping to take one down with me everytime. I die more than win, but I have alot of fun doing it. Then I hear the usual slamming "play a mage, get skill, you AOS trash, you 2 button clicking newb.. blah blah blah" You know, armsmen are just as useful as mages in this game, and have been around just as long. I love when the "traditional" pvpers cry foul when you use any skill implemented after AOS, when they are using the old fashioned mage template, but somehow they hypocritically added bushido or necro to that template..hmm...I love a 2 faced trash talker. Especially their GM, who is a mage with HIDING!!!!!!! That is the most laughable crap I have ever seen...
