Episode 0264: Poor, poor trammy...
Well, i have recently x-ferred to Great Lakes just for the heck of it. But, today i logged onto my newb char on
Atlantic to hang out with my guild.
While there, we went to New Haven. Upon opening a moongate to the Fel guild house, we had two trammies follow us
through. One left soon after, while the other, King Alan, stayed. We killed his hoarde minion, and drank the liquor
it had on it. For 10 minutes, he stayed outside the doors to my house. I opened the doors to let him come loot his
hoarde minion, and he attacked me. Being that i was on a newb char, i quickly closed the doors.
He wore regular platemail armor, and was as new as you could get without being considered young. I logged onto my
red, and killed him quickly. He got rezzed by a nearby healer, and stayed outside for another 10 minutes. When we
asked him what he wanted, he said he was after the 8k gold we took off his hoarde minion. I let him in, and took
him down into my dungeon. I tossed the 8k gold into a cell, and he went in to grab it. That's when i slammed the
Owner Only gate shut. He stayed there for about 45min, with us just throwing explosion pots at him.
After a while, we'd go into the cell to talk to him, and he'd attack us. So me and my friend, who was also on a
newb char, kept letting him kill us. We then would count him. After 5 counts, he was red. We told him that this
meant that he could not return to trammel. I gave him a proposal. I said that he could live in my dungeon and
use the thief training room to become a thief. When he was a thief, he could join us. He agreed. I set all the
doors to the dungeon as Owner Only, and let him out of his cell.
I then tried to have him read the book i wrote about training a thief, but he didn't understand it. It turns out
that his native language is Indonesian, and he couldn't understand English very well. After knowing this, i felt
bad. We tried to show him how to train stealing, and even lured a gypsy halfway across Fel to my house, so he
could train Stealing from the NPC to 30 or so. He couldn't even understand how to train Stealing from the NPC
drop-down menu. That is when he asked me this:
I felt bad, so i agreed. I did warn him that he had to wait 40 in-game hours to return to trammel. He still
wanted to leave. I opened the gates to my dungeon and let him free. He then asked to be sent to a populated
area. We warned him that people would now kill him on sight. He said, and i quote:
"I will fight like a true warrior."
Poor roleplaying newb, lol. I couldn't talk him out of it, nor convince him to stay. So, we opened a gate to
the only moongate rune we had, Fel Yew. He told us goodbye, and went through. I honestly didn't even care to
go and check to see how fast he died. It didn't need confirmation, it was just inevitable, lol.
He was a nice guy, and i feel bad. If he would've understood English better, then he could've had an awesome
story to tell later on down the line about how he became a thief. A trammy forbidden to return to trammel...what
a sad story, lol.
