Welcome to our newest members! WE ARE STILL RECRUITING!
This release we have seen two new Player Killer guilds formed and we are starting to lose grasp on the Virtues in the pvp that we have enforced. Help us! Join the Order of Vengeance and help us hunt down those pesky PKers and bring Justice to this land!
CALL FOR MEMBERS!
We need more crafters to help us with our homes and our defenses (decorations, armor, weapons, etc).
We need town cooks.
We would like a few towns we can start getting an idea at trading with (trade routes). If any of this sounds good to you please send me a P.M. with your details!
Welcome new members if i havent welcomed you yet!
I updated our guild town page on the wiki to include a few of the tournaments I had run previously. Enjoy.
Cool fact: we held the first 1v1 and the first 2v2 tournaments and will possibly be hosting the first Gladiator event from blaquerogue... Cool!
No Duke Keep, what's up with that?
No need for a Duke Keep when you have an entire town
Methinks the Duke Keep(s) will be elsewhere.
Isn't that a lot of taxes to pay though? I just mean if you're going to own a Tax Free Duke Keep somewhere else, cool. But then you have other houses, I presume one of the City houses? Maybe not. I guess that would be a guild house maybe that everyone would pitch in tax money for?
The Duke Estate Lots are only available by pledging - so no taxes. I meant to just say that while multiple Duke's may sign on to this excellent guild they may plant their keeps around the world instead.
It's a guild town and I see no reason to take up the sq ft space of the duke castle for my own house lot. If there is space left over I will. My guild is paying for this town so for me to take this space when we might have guildies that do not get property another way... just wouldn't be virtue based
Thanks for the inquiry!
That would be right the very first "Gladiator Wars" to check out the scoop on Gladiator Wars check out this thread here..............
Arena/Gladiator Tourneys "Gladiator Games"
send all inquiries to me via Personal messages, i look forward to working with you all. Remeber if you dont have a town or guild to claim i may sponsor you!
This isn't supposed to be a hi-jack of the thread but I wasn't planning on a duke keep either, for similar reasons to Violation too. A lot of other houses could be built in its place: 8 village houses isn't insignificant imo. Obviously, depends whatever POT owners are most happy with.
This looks like a wall of junk but its worth a read!
Lets get to know blaquerogue....or Torniquet....or Squirrel.....or Dirtnap and many other faces.
ok im gonna go way back here! It started on a MMUD game, when dial up was king!(lol) between the beeps and blurps, and whirrrrring! I logged in finally Keirnon was the name! i used to go through all the lines of text n,s,e,w ill go n. Into the the Dark Magicians area and fight them and take their emblems, fight a couple kobold rogues along the way (a,you swipe at kolbold rogue, a you miss kolbold rogue, a you hit kolbold rogue for 5 points, a you missed -10 you've been hit, a you hit kolbold rogue for 10 pts!, kolbold rogue lunges at you and missises,a you hit kolbold rogue for 10 dmg, a you hit kolbold for 10 dmg! you have slain the kolbold rogue) a= attack back then! played some Ultimas (they were boring for me)
flash forward UO - let angelic music start playing here!
Dirtnap arrives! "great all i have to do is go out and chop some wood and kill some deer and make money to better arm my self!" strolls out to Yew..... chop chop (whistles a logging tune)
WHAM!!!!!! OoOooOoOoooO! WTH!!! back to yew healer.... back out to woods in another area of YEW, gonna shoot down some deer and make myself some leather armor! "plink, plink,plink" goes my bow, and i start gathering the bounties smiling away, finally i get to make some decent armor!
WHAM! "OoOoOoOo! grrrrrrrrr!!!!!!! @#$%^&! your dead!!! I will kill you if its the last thing i do!!!!" in open game chat " calling all newbies, come to yew so we can gather goods and fight the PKr and make lots of gold!" Newbs show up 15 or 20 we exchange our OoooOO! stories and make a list of KOS people! (kill on site Pkrs). we Suit up head out to the places where we were attacked often, chopping wood etc...
WHAM! One newbie goes down the rest of us swarm on the pkrs over and over! (hes not talking smack now!!!) WHAM! now all we see is OoOoOooooO from him, time for us to talk our smack!
Eventually i Formed the Guild (CYS) - Consider Your Sins, i spread my guild to Chessy, lake superior, and Atlantic we were a known red hunter guild! All we did was hunt down reds anywhere and everywhere (the best part was seeing the reds run when we were around, for they knew death soon followed!), We had a keep across the lake in east Brit, Salty dog was our gathering spot! (i loved the Salty Dog) so many friends and good times there! Took a break from UO ( Sent to war by the Military) The guild diminished but the legacy lived on!
Felucca and Trammel! WTH!!! this sucks, no reds will be coming over here! and now no one wants to go to Fel?? I went there and set up my guild again just south of the Yew graveyard! my house was clearly labelled! big CYS in molten lava (did i mention i love the ability to build our own houses!) across the top for all reds to see in CYS we do not hide!
"Squirrel" now takes over! gm Tact, gm Fence, gm Heal, close enough to gm Chiv. The difference this time was i had lots of money in UO and could build anything, give anything, get anything. and most important Squirrel never talked trash, never talked in open chat, when the reds came calling to CYS it was a quick death for them!
Dirtnap was still around and still part of the PAXLAIR group, as well as Squirrel and blaquerogue, Then i met Winfield, we both loved to fish, times were slow then with the separation of Tram And Fel. Plenty of time to fish, "Sam Elliot" my blacksmith bludgeon gm, would make goods for us all, he gave away armor and weapons to Newbs, even stuff that cost millions, he would just give away!
Why you ask? Well..if your going to run into people with million dollar armor and weapons you yourself need million dollar weapons and armor! I didn't want them to be discouraged, like some are here in SoTA!
I know how it feels to be ganked over and over, and its a shame i never met those that have been soo discouraged about PVP. Maybe if i had met them they would not be that way! I gave people a chance to survive! They had the tools they needed to exact revenge upon the pkrs that made their game so bad!
Flash forward to WOW, man that game was cool! I loved it, the graphics were great (after all i had been playing top down game view for so long) I ran through the beginning quests, first thing i did was fish and fight Murloks! I loved the animation of fighting and casting spells and the dark evil looking dark woods, skeltons, wolves and all kind of creepy stuff walking around there.
I caused wars between Alliance and Horde that lasted hours, South Shore was ripped apart (blaquerogue was there!!!) Holding off Horde and moving the battle to the field north of that place! Why? So people could get in and do their quests at south shore!
One thing i hated the most was when your questor was killed you had to wait forever for him to respawn! please SoTA dont make anything like that as far as questors dieing! It sucked and we all hated it, Horde and Alliance alike!
All through my gaming life i have Non Pvp'd and PVP'd, helped new people enjoy the game as much as i had or could! So i honestly know what it is like on both sides of that track!
Flash forward to now. Wow there are a lot of cool games out there! EQ2, Archeage, just to mention some (already out there and being played right now) Whats this?.......Lord British, Richard Garriot!, a new game he and his team are designing! Yo im all over this game!! (as im looking through Kick Starter) and i can help design it! Hell yeah im in!!! 100 here, 100 there, 100 more here,Knight Marshall Status! I have all i need to start playing this game when it comes out and i can get in on DEV+ and help design this game!
SHROUD OF THE AVATAR!!!!!! blaquerogue/Torniquet appears out of the fog! I read through the forums, i get mad and fight ruthlessly through them all, how dare they say this about my game play style!!! (but still i understand what its like to be a victim to a pk attack )
So i do understand the NonPvp group, and i do understand the RP groups, we will all be able to live together happily in the game! At least thats what it sounds like from all the Dev talk.
Its guild time i need to see whats out there, so i go to the guild forums looking through them all. I have finally found the guild i want to be part of "Order of Vengeance", it is like CYS born out of the flames again!
The early releases come out you know im going to be wherever the PVP is! I jump straight into the frey, hanging out at Fire Lotus Tavern, with other players having a great time (even with those i dislike so much in the forums) Winfield is here with his PAXLAIR, i roll out to their city and meet up with all my old friends from UO! This is awesome! Im loving it! I set up my house and decorate it, sweet it looks awesome!
R9 comes out! Ive already set up "Gladiator Wars" people are curious they come to talk to me about it and how to set up their characters, I help all that come to me for a visit! We go to the coast and fight each other, Violation is there, other Vengeance people are there, were having competitions left and right 1 on 1, 4 on 1, suprise attacks from "to be" Pkrs everyones fighting! picking sides its great, its fun and im glad i invested in this game!
There is passion in them words!!!
Thanks! I really put it all into that! Im exhausted!
He spoke briefly about upgrading the town. Would be nice to see a Dukes keep in every town.
It only eats two city lots .
Yeah, this 15% bonus has me thinking about putting more out for it... since we have three (potentially five soon) Dukes in the guild... and we have three (potentially four soon, the fourth wouldn't be a guild town) towns... yeah...
I am planning another upgrade to Village before this offer dries up. Possibly Crossroads but that will make things very tight. Crossroads may have to wait for next year or NOV/DEC. I stop at crossroads though LOL!!
I need to apply some breaks to my spending!!!
Then you'd have to find a place to hold your money... easier to just give it away to Portalarium...
Hey guildies! This post is for current guild members more than recruitment. I'm missing a few of you from the members pages (about 4 I think) and I'd like to push this back on you guys! I want your names and titles and short bios in a pm please. While recovering from surgery I'll be updating the members pages so if you can pm them to me or reply here with them I'd appreciate it.
Yep Yep , we need to see who you are.. sign up guys ,,,,, or Gals.
Separate names with a comma.
