Being "special"
Veromos grew up in a typical rough life for any duergar. His father was dead before he was born, killed for his gambling debts. His mother was a whore - an ugly one at that, who had nothing but him. She named him Veromos, meaning Perfect, hoping he would someday grow into it but her disappointment grew from his birth and he would hear about it everyday. He was constantly ridiculed for his looks and lack of ability, pointing in others their superiority. "Look at the king's sons, now those are cute boys! Nothing like you." During one of her "business visits", the moans of animal lust became violent. His Momma was raped and murdered by the customer who then came staggering out of the bedroom calmly to smoke with Veromos. The eager young duergar stared in the eyes of his mother's killer, carefully placing his words for he was a witness... "Momma dinna want the Eternal Abyss." The man chuckled darkly, pulling heavily on his cigar - he was well dressed, obviously a political official of some sort. "If ya want somethin' from someone, juz take it. Us bastards were born in filth, it is our greed that pulls us out tah riches. 'Member that." The man walked out, still debating if he should kill the boy, as Veromos asked oddly "What is it you liked of Momma?" The man grinned, stating in rememberance "Her tongue, kid - like a snake... One helluva bitch...." As he left with a wink. Veromos went into the bedroom... His mother laid there with a sickly gaze in her eyes, her throat bruised heavily from being strangled. Using his bare hands and all his effort, Veromos ripped out her tongue and held it in his mouth - it was too big, but he would keep it. Rummaging through her things, he pulled out a needle and spool of black thread. He began to sow the tongue to his belt as he hummed his favorite tune. Momma always liked to sow...

Description (commended):

The gruesome, portly duergar before you could only be described as "patched" - various body parts including pieces of skin, teeth, and hair have been stitched onto his body replacing what was once his. A beautiful dwarven beard, still connected to the rotting flesh of it's previous owner has been grafted onto his chin. Stretched to cover his entire neck is the ebony skin of a drow female, the scars of the stitches still filled with puss from recent work. Jarring out from his mouth are two orc incisors, their placement locked over his existing teeth with fishing hooks that pierce his gums. His original hair has been completely removed and replaced with the coarse orange hair of a fire giant, lightly stained with blood and stitched directly into his skull. His eyes have been untouched, their cloudy gray color in a glazed stare as he admires his surroundings. His armor fits his body fashion, patched together from the fallen in battle with no apparent care for matching attire but only what he desires. Gripping his weapon tightly, you notice his right hand has been completely replaced with a hand of an ogre - the size obviously too big for him but its strength is unmatched. A foul odor, resembling a decaying carcass, slowly starts reaching into your nostrils.

    Long story short:

    I located a globe few days ago on Veromos, then quit out and got it with my shadow, Zelrina - a total idiotic move and I am still not sure why I thought it was a "normal" thing to do.

    I should have read the rules more carefully. Ceridwel was about to deny me for it, but I plead for mercy and asked a chance to delete myself instead.

    It was amazing time learning the character and all the battles I had.

    Really hoped to see Resatimm, but I didn't know until recently that he is inactive.

    Veromos tried to become a Legion - obviously rejected for being an utter noob I suppose.
    Tried leading a "resistance" to "fight the power" - got betrayed by everyone, dropped that
    Then just went to the the good ol' grim reaper esque and tried to hone my skill, especially when it came to chasing my enemies hehe.

    Good times! I'm sad that my first level 50 went out this way, I wanted to keep it a while longer, even on the shelf if needed but It's all good.

    Love you all xoxo ^^

    Btw, this was the gear I had at the end (a lot of loot to go gather now guys, you better be active hehe!):

    You are using:
    <used as light> (Magical) (Glowing) (Humming) an ancient Banner of Illisidar
    <worn on finger> (Glowing) (Humming) a dragonblood iron-black band of wounding
    <worn on finger> (Glowing) (Humming) the band of Order

      Aaah, I really wanted to keep it short, but so many overwhelming emotions right now lol xD!

      I really loved Jorax, he was an amazing foe!

      Luc always cracked me up, really one of the coolest characters I've met, hands down!

      Trelanya deserves some cuddos too! Even if just for our talks!

      The rest of you were also amazing, to the point where I felt bad irl killing you guys, but it was the "last RP" left to do - just to kill stuff and hope Resatimm approves xD

      Gaaah, I will stop typing now lol!

      Just gotta figure out what char to focus on now!

      I did the same thing a long time ago (located items with one character then acquired them with another)... I paid for it with one character getting denied, and getting slain on the main. It is covered under the rules for multi, and I feel like I got off lucky.

      With that said, learn and move on. If you play a character with locate object and play another one without it, don't let that affect your in-game actions.

      This is not to say I am flaunting the rules now, just that I did something similar a long time ago and I learned from my mistakes. I could have lost one of my best characters over this too, but Davairus was lenient with me. I had not looked at the rules closely enough and made the same assumption. Hopefully this will be a lesson.

      As I said to Ceridwel, I acknowledge my mistake. I was really not unaware of the rule and this is the truth. And I don't think ignorance makes me innocent. I even told Ceridwel that I've done this before too, because for some reason I thought it's "ok" as there's more than this what is shared between characters on same account for example.

      Never tried to say I was right and I should not be punished.

      However, I did feel that not even a warning for my first offense was pretty harsh, but then again I am not the one to judge the immortals.

      I already accepted my punishment, learned from it and moved on.

      Until Davairus literally killed any joy that was left in me by insulting me and treating me like garbage while I always tried doing my best. You can understand how it feels...

    You cheated, and you're not sure why? I'll tell you why - its greed, and the willingness to be disrespectful of the rules of the game. Nothing more. This doesn't happen again.

      nooooo! I know why! You are right, it was greed!

      I located globe and went to Mahn-Tor to get it on my shadow. Of course it was greed, because I wanted to hoard the globe!

      What I meant was that I was not sure WHY I THOUGHT IT WAS OK!

      I didn't realize it goes against character separation - the locating of item precisely. The thought really didn't cross my mind because so much "in-game knowledge" is shared between characters, such as secrets for an example!

      Are you calling me a cheater on purpose???? If so I may as well delete all my characters here and wave good bye, because never before I've been insulted like this!

      I am fine accepting the fact that I made a mistake and paid for it dearly - losing a character but I am NOT fine with being called names like this!

      Willingness to be disrespectful? Wow! I have been nothing but humble!

      If this comes from the highest level immortal then I think I've made a mistake coming here because god knows I have tried my best to be an exemplary player and become part of the community!

      Thank you for completely devastating any cheerful emotions that i've gathered with Veromos.

      - cheater out.

      So that you'd see it from my perspective, why my outburst happened and why I decided not to stay here:

      Imagine getting a new job. You are 6 months in and think that you're doing good, you're investing every hour of your time to study your job and try to do your very best to excel at your tasks and also provide a good experience for your co-workers.

      You then slip and screw up because you didn't get the memo and made a stupid mistake for which you apologized for.

      But no, you don't even get the first warning or the final warning or nothing.

      You get fired for it and then insulted and you are left there dumbfounded and knowing that you tried your best and don't deserve such treatment but there's nothing to do because the big boss said so already.

      Would you be happy to keep working there? No.

      So you are right. This will not happen again.

      Twerp, an avalance of toxicity won't alter the facts. You've cheated and you're playing the victim. You actually were given lenience (allowed to delete instead of humiliated with being denied) and here you are literally vomiting because of how hard you've had it after pulling some outrageous cheating offense. You didn't "decide not to stay", you were booted from the game.

      Davairus it's not about that I screwed up and I am completely aware of that, it's your specific comment that really hurt my feelings.

      It is self-destructive greed. I'm also saying you have not respected the rules of the game, and that is a factual statement because you've broken them. You didn't even properly own that. You said you didn't bother to properly read the helpfile, you are claiming ignorance and that's only being defensive about it, instead of responsible. Nowhere did you say "I'm sorry to everybody I've pissed off along the way" . Instead, you bragged about your fucking gear, but we all have no idea how each piece was acquired do we? You posted about how sad you are about losing your 50, because like most cheaters thats what you most care about. That's precisely why we delete them! I hope you would be more sad that you've now stained your community reputation as well. Don't expect empathy when you FUCKED UP.

      Meh, it was never about greed as you think. It was me trying way too hard to min/max my characters and to be fair, there was not much to do most of the time than go out there and loot mobs.

      I claimed ignorance but I also said it does not absolve me of my guilt. Just like I told Ceridwel, I am terribly sorry and it was not my intention to break the rules and I will accept any punishment fit for it. I never claimed innocence, never said I don't deserve punishment.
      The only thing that angered me and felt unjust was your venomous comment about me, basically claiming that i'd break every rule if i only could - that's false and it was angering.

      Of course I fucked up, of course I am sorry, I've said it on multiple occasions.

      I did not realize I have pissed everybody off so it didn't come to my mind to apologize for it. Did I really? As evil chaotic duergar shaman one should be expected to piss everyone off in-game in the first place I assumed. I didn't think I did that good of a job being an evil asshole.

      I did not BRAG about my gear - do you realize how many times Veromos died in amazing gear, lost it all only to go back into the fray with nothing but a chieftain's sceptre and goblin buckler? Several several times!

      You don't know how it was acquired? Investing countless hours of grinding and interacting with people. Are you once again accusing me of something else?

      Thank you for labeling me as a cheater, completely discrediting everything I spent hours on.

      But you know what? I am honestly not interested in your biased opinion anymore, you take everything out of context not even bothering to understand what I am trying to say.
      There is no point arguing with a person who is so self-righteous in his point of view that he is absolutely oblivious to what other person's perspective might be.

      Yes, I know, you are the head jefe here and I should probably grovel and lick your shoes, but respect is to be earned not demanded.

      I won't apologize to you as I did to Ceridwel and would for others, because it would not be sincere.

      And this is not about me cheating for some shitty globe that I couldn't really care less about. (As an Imm, I've seen my fair amount of cheaters, they don't prioritize on RP and character development, they truly just want to cheat their way to their goals) - it is about you claiming things like me trying to change my IP on purpose and what not, because none of this is true for a fact and yet you go ahead and slander me like this without knowing me at all.

      If it wasn't true you wouldnt be exploding, "How dare you call me greedy!" Its denial. Its a very easy to recognize defensive mechanism that youre using as a wall to protect yourself with. What the hell are you going on about now, you used to be an Imm or something? You have your head shoved way too far up your own ass to be a good imm. Get out of here with that nonsense.
    9. twerpalina
      0 , 0 , 0 .
      I'm not exploding about you calling me greedy. It's all the other baseless accusations which are false. I think you may be right that someone who tries too hard to min/max their characters is probably driven by greed? I don't know, I'm not a pyschology expert.

      Obviously I've never been an immortal in AR, but I've been immed since last year (after 15 years of playing) in my other mud (not calling out the name as I don't intend on any advertising like you already accused me before lol).
      I still log in there on daily basis, mainly to micromanage my cabal (reading/replying to notes, advising the mortal leader, sometimes forcing people to change descriptions). I'm the lowest level immortal, but I can read all the immortal comments on different characters and there's always a pattern with compulsive cheaters.

      My defensive mechanism got triggered because of you attempting to portray me as some kind of blatant cheater who is constantly on a prowl to find ways to cheat, either by changing my IP or what not - this is so far from truth that it felt like grave injustice.

      I actually do feel bad that all this got carried away way more than it should have been and I'm sorry for my outburst, but injustice really ticks me off.

      I felt like you are trying to undermine me and slander on purpose and I don't feel like I deserved any of this because my intentions were honest and good.

      It really was just a stupid cheat by locating an item and not giving much thought to it when claiming it with other character.

      If you think otherwise, I'd rather hear you say out concrete facts other than baseless slander.

      Anyhow, I am really tired trying to argue with you, it just seems futile because as you reflected on me, you also seem to have your head shoved way too far up your own ass to understand that not everyone is a walking embodiment of evil cheaters ;)

      I did my best to RP my characters out to the max and I don't feel like they need to be tainted with something stupid that I did, because not at any point cheating was involved in the development of Anavel or Veromos.

      I hope you understand it one day and don't have to be so paranoid and mean about it anymore.

      "My defense mechanism got triggered because of you" -- no, thats not how that works. Your vanity, your vulnerability after having your mask of perfection removed. Your decision to throw shade at other people to try to lower them to your level. Your decision to scumbag cheat because youre unique and the rules dont apply. Seasoned Mudder and exemplarly immortal of some other muds, pff. Don't cheat on a PK'ing mud and expect a pat on the back afterwards and well done on an otherwise well played character. You pulled a Chris Benoit on this. Not us, you

    for shame. you were actually making the forums and Logboards exciting enough for me to roll up a char and half train it during a time I really don't have e the time to be doing such. just an FYI that no one else is saying and you don't seem to get. you get the iron fist because the Imms here have been imms here for a very long time and have had to deal with all sorts of scumbag and cheaters. this game breeds hostility and negativity. if you play it for the pk aspect it's doubly so. it has nothing to do with the players themselves it is literally how the game is built. we get the chance to be fully evil with no consequences and real people feel that. with that comes the need to be better and so many people over and over cheat. we have some absolutely prolific cheaters and they have been here just as long as the imms and for some reason they can't stop either. I don't fully understand but I can also fend for myself. don't be a deuche canoe, you know you are just as hooked as we are see because the game is seriously one of a kind. all you have to do is follow the 14 or what ever rules and you can be here as much and ss you want for free. that's offered absolutely no where else.

      FWIW I actually wasn't going to deny you, but instead knock you down to one life left (and eat all that sweet gear).

      You've got great potential for HoE one day if you can keep the cheat-bug in check.

        That would have actually been really fun and a challenge. I was hoping for someone to take Veromos to go out with a bang for a while now (I was wanted for over a month I think?)

        And there really is no cheat-bug, I don't feel the need nor want to cheat, with all honesty.
