ill have to give myself a good wash in the greater york sea to get the stink of talking to you off me.

Washing yer self? Yer a Yorker, that stink is in yer blood. 'N it don' help none that that water smells almost as bad as the lot of ya.

You attack the tiger and miss. Pausing a moment to reflect on this, tackling the tiger with your bare hands might be considered crazy!

Having noticed his lackeys fellow citizens of York getting twitchy, the Hierophant decides to inform them of the events proceeding at New Gibraltar.

Quote
2017-03-02 18:51) You hear Kahuni calling for assistance. X7
(2017-03-02 21:45) Robert S Model uses a first aid kit on you and restores 4 health.
(2017-03-02 23:29) Sean Bean is restless
(2017-03-03 04:30) The Hierophant frowns at the brit. "so go kill some foreign scum if you feel restless."
(2017-03-03 04:32) You say “i wasnt going to say anything but that mewling puke who ran the stone owl ran off to settle some ruins north of here, he calls it new gibraltar.”
(2017-03-03 04:33) The Hierophant sneers. "gibraltar. if its hard to pronounce you can bet its stuffed with darkies. its no name for a yorkman to call his home."
(2017-03-03 04:36) You say “anyway the improbably named rockwell ballbreaker hands out faks and bullets to people on the road. whites, darkies it makes no difference to him. deplorable.”
(2017-03-03 04:38) You say “but to make a long story short some mick pirate named ed mcgill has been killing him and his jungle bunny brigade. he requested help from york, even offered 50gc per kill but i told him to piss off.”
(2017-03-03 04:40) The Hierophant faces Sean Bean squarely. "so if your so damn bored go take some gold from that weak willed pacifist and kill a pirate. maybe while your there you can show him how to use a rifle."
(2017-03-03 04:45) You carve [-70.357,+26.406] onto the wall.
(2017-03-03 04:48) The Hierophant writes some coords on the wall. "thats where you'll find new gibraltar." He eyes the other yorkmen malevolently. "the bounty is open to anyone who can kill a pirate assuming any of you can."
(2017-03-03 04:50) You say “now im going to see what that damn shaman is yelping about. he used to cry a lot back in the good old days before he cut out his tongue so maybe he needs a reminder whos in charge around here.”
(2017-03-03 04:51) The Hierophant pauses. "before WE cut out his tongue. because it wouldnt make sense if he..." He looks askance. "aw whatever your all mutes anyway."
(2017-03-03 04:51) You step outside.

now you owe me ballbreaker. and a yorkman always pays his debts. Or was that some other inbred nation of Aryan cryptofascists?

OOC: 1293 signposts destroyed, i'd say it's fairly clear who's been destroying the road system. I'll be sure to add him to my kos list for all characters.

IC: Sean Bean said he'd go to your runty little waystop to see whats what but that was three days ago. i sent him to Santas grotto in december to defend the saint from the peigins and he got lost so maybe he'll show maybe he won't. i'd be more upset at his tardiness if i cared whether you all lived or die.

OOC: Yeah. He's smashed up signs on the southern road and the signs for the road network between Pike's farm, the river cave, Gibraltar, and Santa's Grotto. Signposts should be much harder to knock down.

Now he's up to 1314. I sent him this note the same day you mentioned it:


Quote
Hello,

I would like to respectfully ask you not to destroy any more signposts, at least those that are road markers, or Geocache skullposts. I, along with a few other dedicated Shartakers, have been maintaining the road system for several years. It's a lot of effort that goes into making them, and it costs nothing to smash them. It's just a game, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd find something else to do within the game than wreck our projects.

But he ignored it, and I guess this is his reply. Repairing the road system isn't unexpected - I fix up the road between Derby and Durham quite a lot - and it's probably not needed; it's not like there's a big influx of new players who don't know where the villages are. But I am a bit concerned about the geocaches.

And with such a prolific signpost smasher, well, there's no point getting drama-y about it, but there's also no point doing any more roadwork while he's active. I remember the fuss that was made over Rustyguns. He eventually showed up on the forum, laughed it off, and kept right at it, killing him didn't deter him, and most of the regs felt it was rather trivial to get upset about - I had to pay Solemn to help [though I don't think I actually did, gold's tight].

Yeah, that one's just a general issue troll. He feeds on frustrating people. If you kill him, he'll follow you around wailing for weeks. Very irritating, and another reason to fix the haunting mechanic.

Perhaps a better fix, and one suggested before, is to make signposts much harder to knock down. If it takes you 75 swings to knock down three signposts, you're going to do less damage while still getting your jollies from doing damage.

Christine Rose's Unknown Vendetta

Hnh.

Well, about a month ago, maybe more, I noticed her on the Road to Durham. I healed her up twice in a short span, I think she was getting attacked by tigers, and I noticed that she had a number of signpost smashes on her profile. Not that many, about 40, but I wasn't sure how widespread this was. This was way before I knew about Mexrax. So just in case, I let her know that if I saw that number go up any higher, I'd come back later and kill her, but until I knew for sure, she was just a patient in need of healing.  

And that's it apart from the torrid love affair with her sister.

The thing is, it's kind of been awhile. I mean, I've been in Derby resupplying [and seriously reconsidering this roadwork vocation] for the last five days. I'm nowhere near New Gibraltar and haven't been for a long time. And 'native' witch doctor?  Embarrassed

Moving along, and OOC, I was hoping to use this location as an epicentre for player activity since it is centrally located (close to Raktam, Wiksik and York anyway, and not too far from Dalpok) and it is outsider/native neutral.

With that in mind, I've asked Simon for a big favour: to impose a customised image in place of the "ruins" image. The image would essentially be a tourist attraction to bring people in, and thereafter facilitate in-character role play in circumstances where player numbers have dropped off and the opportunity for RPing is consequentially limited.

Also, the roleplaying hubs within towns (The Hanged Misfit, the Stone Owl, the Wiksik throne room, the Raktam throne room, and the others) I think did not go the distance because they were specific to a town and gave a home ground advantage. If any outsider stepped into the Royal Court of Greater Raktam throne room back in the day, nine times out of ten they would have been swiftly eviscerated. The Stone Owl Tavern in York which I ran until a few months ago ostensibly welcomed natives but they were easily picked off. My retired character Tonto ran the Hanged Misfit tavern in Derby for a while, but the visitors were inevitably locals. There wasn't much cross-pollination with characters from other centres.

(Having said that, the hotel in Durham seems to be doing well, and the Wiksik spirit hut always has characters about.)
