em half-bows to the silvery, whip-wielding noblewoman.

The plot that resulted out of it was quite cool, but I don't think I'm ever going to live that failed bit of emotive artistic license down.

Oh, I've got a new one. I missed the entire Copper War because I decided that my elf bard was too much of a coward to attend.

That's excellent, actually.  Play the character, not the game.  That's the least dumb thing I've read in here.

The hilarity of some templar confrontations reminds me of a few times where I've played pretty wild rebel characters that didn't give up to the law in any city-state, no matter what.  There were times where I ran around the city trying to get away from templars and soldiers, killing a few here and there.  Skulking from street to street with a militia cloak or templar robe on or something, trying to use it as a disguise.  At times I made it to the stables and galloped my kanks arse off running out the gates... too many other times I got ganked.  ;)

I remember one time some templar walked into Flint's, confronted my Mul and I ran off, some female character following me that I forgot about... so I figured they thought we were both outlaws.  Ran around in the southwest part of Tuluk, back then where you could go down one level in the commoners quarter... hiding there, then trying to get out and away in the sand storm and ended up fighting some templars and soldiers in the dark storm... maybe killed a couple soldiers and a templar before finally getting zapped and horribly burned to death by some spell.  I was hoping I could make it out of the city during low visibility, but back then the code wasn't quite as realistic.

I missed it becasue I was playing a Tuluki in the South at the time.

Mistake #1 was chasing a pair of desert elves in a sandstorm.  That's such a horrifical mistake that I no doubt deserved what I got.
Mistake #2 was not retreating three clicks inside Allanak.  At the gates != safety.

(I'm sure that a pair of Soh had an important IC reason for taking pot-shots at soldiers south of the Shield Wall, sigh.)

I did it only once, a long time ago, but my PC was drunk, and I think sometimes I get too into the mindset.  The easiest reason for me not doing the popular Way-nap is probably because I keep stun on a prompt, and monitor these numbers like a hawk.

My first PC was employed to a Rukkian, said Rukkian led my PC to his top secret cave to gather basalt. Not only on the way there did I say "its cold out" in the middle of the zalanthian day, but I also got lost trying to find it again later on and subsequently ran out of stamina, resulting in a quick nap in the middle of the desert.

First to come to memory..

When we were first getting the Soh going and had not yet achieved staff backing or a simple campgrounds,
we were basing at the desert elf outpost.

Well, up-times were long then, our playtimes were high and few got into the Pah without us knowing about it
so we used a table in the tavern as our personal tribe storage.

Like playing Jenga, with every piece of debris/resource/hide you can find in the area..

I think Sanvean is the staff member who whooped us for that one.

I remember that table...

I also remember the whole drama surrounding theft from it and someone's opinions  :-\

I lag so often that this is a regularity with me. And I'm not used to having lower stat characters so ... it's been a doozy a couple times in recent history. Roflmao.

Man, those things are -brutal-.  The time I died to one, I OOCly knew what I was doing, and it was completely IC for my character, but ...  wow.  Some monsters in this game are/were awesome.

Running after Carru, catching them, then eating them while they are still breathing is a Red Fang's version of 'fast food'.

Oh hay, sup mister templar talking to me infront of this helpful militia member. I'm going to just type hide so you  can't see me anymore... And then run away to a certain unsavory place... And then come back when you start yelling in my head.
