From Rags to Riches
Imagine the life of a child in the Timaran streets. No mother, no father, only a persistent hunger. Of course Yngfre stole, you would steal, and so she did. At first it was free food, and then it turned into awkward chats with the day guards. And finally, when pinned in the alley, it turned into her against him. Ten years later, as a youth offender, she was released. And on her first day, another, privileged no more than she, said, "I will show you how to live," and extended a frail hand to her. Yngfre followed the man, he looked old and homeless, just like a beggar, but there was something about him. She had noticed the tattoo of something obscure on the back of his hand. They soon reached the South Side Kitchen, where warm soup accompanied them on a table. The old geezer gestured for Yngfre to examine the room, the environment, the people, and how they interact with one another. He began to philosophize as Yngfre listened and took in her first true lesson. From this moment forward, she was to join the Thieves guild and ascend to her pinnacle. Only there could she truly make a difference in the world.

Description (commended):

From out behind the petite human frame, a pair of grey feathery wings arch high into the air around her. These stormy appendages have a wingspan that is capable of engulfing her like a tower shield. Their bottom rows have feathers that have started to turn white from late moulting, occasionally shedding to drift off into the wind. This winged human has ashen grey hair that falls beneath her shoulders unkempt and weathered. The long strands frame a youthful face that is etched with a stoic look. She looks to be athletically toned with no blemishes on her pale skin, except for a tiny pewter ring in her right nostril. Her eyes are a deep, rich brown that are windows into the calmness of her very soul.

  1. Was this a delete or a con death? You must have been close to con death so it would seem a bit strange to delete if thats what happened. Props for the longevity.

          Goddangit.. if I payed attention and realized I got a new title I would not have deleted. But this was mine, I only play 1 character at a time, and my play time has dwindled.

          I enjoyed Yngfre's story, at least what I was trying to tell. Ever since I created Arunore I have been trying to bring back Assassins with rogues. This one took an interesting turn of course. A shame I didn't notice the new title, I was getting bored and that realization would have kickstarted some motivation. But alas, all good.

          I was at an intersection, to roleplay evil turned by the ruby hilted, or rejoin the order of chaos, but the character was stagnating a bit and that was mostly due to my lack of time committment. So instead of fading away into obscurity, I just decided to put this one to rest. I wanted to con death this one too. I should have stuck to my guns on that.

          All in all, I enjoyed this one. I have made huge changes on dealing with interactions based off of this game, and the goal is to just have fun. Everyone should have fun.

          With that being said, I want a caballed again.. I'd like something fresh. I recently switched to mushclient from gmud and I hate it, but at least I can start posting logs haha. I fought with 2 warriors last night, seperately, but Rithgjar caught me sleeping with a couple of good rounds, I underestimated his tracking abilities. Had removed the ruby and poison was injuring me, so when I got to 7 hp, that poison stunned and killed me before I could reach the temple for a healy heal rofl

            Arunore, you were amazing. I got to see your character from many different sides. From the side of the enemy, and from the side of the ally. Of course that was subject to changed due to your insanity, but I had fun playing a knight trying to roleplay you keeping your sanity. You even went with it a little, even though it was clear your goal was to lose it based on the dagger. The way you played when you had the dagger vs not was fantastic. I enjoyed every interaction, both the ones that found you on the end of my blade, and the ones that found me on the end of yours. However, pretty sure I killed you more than you killed me haha. Fantastic job, I look forward to seeing what you do next.

          I really regret that a lot of the best times for this character happened while I was on a break from the game. Im sorry to have left you in the lurch. Would have loved to see the condeath, i was looking forward to see how you would blaze out, but I know the feeling of being done with a character and sympathize with the decision to delete.

          I have said it before but I'll say it again here: this gy shows a gold standard for background entries. It is a perfect implementation of the vision i had when we added multi page backgrounds.

          Thanks for the fun times, as always your next character is eagerly anticipated.

            HoE I think. I fought you on conundo and my giant keeper mordex you were awesome at rping all the time you didn't rage and death full loots you didn't even get mad I remember one time you said "seems I forgot how to fight" you had longevity and brought spice to the game. Kudos and I hope you do go Caballed then again I guess it depends on what you cabal to.

              When I came back in Feb/March, I felt your RP was brutal. You were a true neutral playing chaotic evil. Then bugging me for Assassin which earned you a mob slay (and very close to permanent harm to your thief). Your RP was much better later on, but I feel that doesn't make up for being booted from a cabal and completely mis-playing your alignment.

              You are a top notch PKer, know the limits and strengths of the class and were not afraid to engage anyone, anywhere, regardless of the odds. No one ever figured out how to fight you and you capitalized repeatedly on it. Pwning Legions left and right. Was quite entertaining to see, especially the abduct where you tore Rith yet again.

                Haha, right? It was Heralds, and I was wrongfully booted then offered the same position and rank back which I declined.

                The character had a roleplay scenario with Godrak, an Alhoon, and Darkhan, where I was allegedly suppose to prove my worth. The problem is crickets happened and I never saw the Undead again. This left the character outcasted but I was more or less bummed about the lack of followup with the deity and undead. Then I found you on, ran my mouth a bit when you showed disinterest, and that was that.

                The character was being roleplayed out for an evil turn via the ruby hilted, but.. this is why I switched to mushclient, so I can post logs. There is a lot of stuff that happens interaction wise to the character that most people or some Immortals don't even know about. And it is no ones fault, it is just the criteria gets windswept (pun) to the side, leaving the efforts up to assumption because there is nothing to show for it.
              2. Yes. The undead did our part, just the Dark Lord did not find you worthy.
              [reply to Resatimm]
            2. I only fought you once and it was a very short encounter lol. But I did admire the RP. I can say that more for this character than any other I've ever come across, I never had any idea what she was going to do. Embodiment of unpredictable and chaotic.

                I enjoy the backgrounds and creativity. Otherwise you were a pest!! First interaction with you was when you stole my Xel Morak from Eurayel. Idiot me for sleeping in town while thieves were very rampant. Granted, I did not know you were logged on at the time.
                Good luck with the next good sir, and glad to see you're still around rolling toons!

                    Aww... I was looking forward to the condeath. I put the title last night after watching your ruby death haha (felt as though that would have been a fitting condeath for Yngfre, to be honest!). Quite enjoyed the RP. Well done.

                      I enjoyed your character for sure. More on in the early stages however since I found myself feeling bad for you in the later stages. Mostly because people would start pulling you into a different character arc and just never following up so you were stuck in a weird limbo.

                      You were always my favorite non deputy, deputy. Thanks for all the apprehensions.

                              I investigated and I think I see what is going on here. The game uses a status affect to track who you recently killed, for multikilling penalty purposes. Its in effect for approx 30 minutes of REAL time, so that if you attacked again within that quick of a time period, it would call that PK a foul. However if you logout, it loses track of why you have the status effect. If you then ALSO log back in, and PK before the affect wears off, then the game can't tell who you just multikilled, and just assumes every PK is multikilling. It penalizes you no matter who you killed. Also, just to make it perfectly clear, that it has probably been that way since before Olyn even immed. There's no anti-pk'ing or anti-evil intent behind it at all. Its just shitty coding.

                              most deaths aren't counted because certain people (some of who happen to be named Olyn) tailored the record feature to favor their specific playstyles by ignoring a shit pile of kills under a wide array of circumstances

                              If you die to the same person multiple times, it is only counted as one death and vice versa for kills.

                              The PK stats was changed to start counting at level 25+ (instead of 36+) and stacking penalties have been removed, penalty for killing Heralds has been removed. That means it counts more pk's, not less pks. Its completely false to say it ignores loads of kills. It doesn't do that. The only thing I can see ignored that I disagree with is 5+ level difference kills are ignored. I also confirmed the multikilling edge case is happening. If kills are missing that seems confusing, its way more likely to be because of that.

                              The above stats being off was just an incomplete written sql query which I have corrected. You will see a bunch of characters jump up in both kills and deaths because of this fix.

                            your skill with thieves is pretty damn good. I really wish you didn't go the route you did because I was looking forward to rping with you as an advocate for keepers. To be honest when we fought I was fully expecting you to let me kill you I was going to take the dagger and stop you from turning "evil" But when you stole my bracelets I was just hurt LOL. I was staring at my screen like how could he do that to me LOL after all I did to defend you. I really regret deleting and not taking the rp with you to another level, it could have made the game more interesting. You make great thieves and I hate you for it.
