typing jump at 3am with blurry eyes to jump over a sword lying on the ground and abbreviating the command while carrying a VERY expensive sword.

Desert Elf Warrior, with master (at the time) parry, roaming around the grasslands. Can't find the ATV camp in the dark, so I keep looking around. Wind up in a room with a cilops, and am under attack. Inix catches the combat, joins in.

I kill the cilops, -and- the inix, in a blinding sandstorm, at night.

But I'm poisoned. At the time, I didn't understand the poison and cures in the game, and had no idea what to do to cure myself.

If you got hit by a cilops as a d-elf warrior, you didn't have parry mastered, broheim.

Oh, yeah...beyond my previously-mentioned escapades...I vaguely recall power-emoting urinating on a Tuluki noble one time, but I was pretty drunk, so I'm not sure if I actually did it, or if I dreamed it.

I did, sir, when I had multiple opponents, and was unable to see (even though <CERTAIN SKILL> helped)

Only takes one hit.

So far, the only truly dumb thing I've done was not ask someone who knew the city better to show me how to get to the salt flats. I wandered away on my own and wound up in a seedy part of 'Nak and got stabbed to death v.v;

I don't know, I figured this game out pretty quick ...

Hitting 'enter portal' twice?

I thought of something.  Referencing stars and moving water, and other alien concepts by habit of conversation.  Using words that are contrived, by context.  Uhh, going in that dark place.  :)

Moving water isn't too alien a concept now... :p

One of my dumbest things... making a comment about a noble being mad because I had more sid than he did...in front of the noble..and witnesses..with nowhere to run.

It's a toss up between that, and typing junk (fancy emote) [fancy emote follow up], and then forgetting to add the keyword of the thing I was junking, and junking something important instead.

Trying to make a comeback to the game, so I guess I'll start by posting in a new thread.

Back in the day, one of my earliest characters was a human, Allanaki commoner by the name of Marok-Tor.  You'd think the staff would have mentioned something about my choice of name, (despite the hyphenation) or at least flat out rejected my submission, but things were different then.  I think the Blackwings were off riding kanks somewhere.  So when a Templar approached me and I announced myself, it went something like this:

The haughty, badass Templar says, in sirihish:
     "Present yourself, citizen."

Bowing, you say to the haughty, badass Templar, in sirihish:
     "Marok-Tor, my lord."

The haughty, badass Templar says, in sirihish:
     "Tor?  Where is your signet ring?"

You say to the haughty, badass Templar, in sirihish:
     "Uh... what?"

The haughty, badass Templar shouts, in sirihish:
     "Imposter!"

The haughty, badass Templar [casts a terrifying spell].

Basically, things went awry.  I poured over the documentation in those early days, but I guess I missed that bit about House Tor.

On my first PC, I'd offer people sitting around the Gaj jobs. I told them they'd have to come meet my boss first in the Rinth, at which point I'd lead them to a very public tavern and kill them.

I don't know how that never caught up to me.

Wore a dead Kuraci's cloak to the outpost. ( I didn't realize) I had to check it'd been a year. Oddly, I did survive it.
Varak:You tell the mangy, pointy-eared gortok, in sirihish: "What, girl? You say the sorceror-king has fallen down the well?"

I started as a rinthi back when I was newb enough not to know how to change language, or knew that the rinth was divided into westside and eastside. Back then, docs didn't mention that westside or eastside existed, much less that you shouldn't go out of your side. i was an elf and they start out speaking allundean, so i'm sitting in a westside bar and this guy comes in and we start talking, except i pretend not to speak sirihish because i don't know the command. he tells me to follow him or get killed, and i know he's gonna freakin' cut my head off, but i do what he says anyway. he shuts the door in an abandoned building and starts cutting me up with a butcher knife. so many potential escape openings, and if i were in that role today, i might have been able to escape and would definitely have managed to at least get out of his sight. i mean, it was a really long walk, and i could have run away at any time. it was like austin powers driving a tractor and the guy screaming for five minutes before being rolled over.

not sure if it's that one, or the one where i looked north in the grey forest, and saw a pile of garbage for the first time. and went towards it to look at it. then i'm like, kryl? wow. second impression: kryl?!!! mantis head.

Well, I once applied for a Borsail Mul. I didn't know there were no Borsails around to sell me. I spawned in the Tavern, got set up by an immortal. First PC to run into me was a templar. They asked me some questions and then took me to sit at the entrance of the Borsail Estates. He mentioned that he hasn't seen any public Borsail for a while. I sat there for a long time, and then stored. Since now, not only could I not get out of the nobles quarter, there weren't any Borsail PCs around at the time.

Tied between that and when I was a D-elf. She was pretty prominent. Well, I was at the very beginning of a long series of events in the scheme of the world that I can't name. Well, the bad thing wanted to speak to me (An Imm, I'm guessing). I ran from the SLK camp down there and after I got there, another IMM informed me the 1.Imm could not make it. So I started to run back. I ran into a Dujat (Which I could kill pretty easily at the time), it f'ed me up with a vengeance. I got it down to near death with a quicker time, but then it turned into the terminator and went on the war path. I had pretty good flee, I fled n, but ran south, into a hole.
After a tense minute, you can guess what came down after me and what happened after that.

I fell down a mineshaft with my kank. Because I didn't read room descriptions. Nearly starved down there.

I also 'accidentally' walked into a certain tower because the door was open for some reason. A staff member animated some NPC, chased me out and told me the gate should have been closed.
