How can one’s patience not grow thin with a life consisting mainly of tailoring, getting killed by murderers, and whining about it?  The seeds of insanity in Musashi had been sown long long ago, and the malodorous climes of Sosaria only served to germinate them at an accelerated rate.  If the physics of the world would allow him to, Mu would gladly leap off of this cliff to his death in the sea, but even that respite is denied him, as the maliciously cackling wandering healers and shrines bring one back to life again and again… only the legendary account cancellation phenomena brings any sort of lasting peace to the weary traveler.  Why has Musashi not sought this relief yet?  Only for the company of friends, such as those he has made in the Lost Order of Akalabeth, but such a huge guild eventually feels impersonal and remote, as bureaucracy and politics cloud the simple, personal bonds which make life worthwhile.  What to do?  Fortunately, some other people were close at hand to exploit his vulnerable state.

How bored was Maraxus?  So bored that he decided to accompany Mu on a hunting trip in the Southern Jungles, in search of those new hide-bearing animals that previously yielded relatively worthless yet more logical furs when dressed.  Knowing full well the combative potential of rabbits and the like, Mu dressed for the occasion, in a nice set of gold plate he recently liberated with Maraxus’ help.  Mu is totally engrossed in trying to look imposing, as Maraxus… umm… no doubt Maraxus is trying his best to heal this poor injured soul.

Damn, AoD again.  The LOA clearing is a popular hangout for all sorts of people, including the villainous, who can often be seen taking naps here and there in the verdant grass.  Musashi still had a death wish, and so despite his mysterious ailment which he mentions here, was glad to come down and join the fun.  "Blue Screen" is a malicious disease, striking whenever it is least convenient for its victims, leaving them vulnerable and unaware of their surroundings.  It had struck Mu 3 times in the same number of hours, and could make things very inconvenient for him.  However, Maraxus (under the Brewman sign) has other things to worry about, as he notices Xzor (mounted) grabbing loot from a drowsy AoD, loot that the Lost Order as protectors of the clearing have an obligation to safekeep.

Yet another award? The Medal of Unified Force was given to me after I stayed up way too late watching Deathwish Dragon fail to time out in a dangerous area, and to Dawnstar when he came on and took over second shift. I would rather have received the Bronze Flour Sack, for the circle of these objects I placed all around DD and his silly horse to prevent some wandering ogres from attacking him… for some reason you can’t walk over a flour sack in this game.

In other news, the recent AoD raid on the LOA Festival of Unity , although I fully expected it, was yet another step towards my decision to leave UO to the misanthropic children and go spend my time doing more reasonable things, like working on more small ensemble composition and getting sex, neither of which is familiar to the vast majority of UO players.

The Festival of Unity… one of the largest events to be held on the Atlantic shard in recent memory, at the LOA village!  Drinking!  Storytelling!  Lottery!  Duels!  And, because it was widely publicized, party crashers!  Here are two of them, in the purple robes, members of the extremely silly Army of Darkness, the group of malcontents who have been recently displaying their prowess by harassing and attacking LOA merchants and travelling tradesmen.  What about that seer behind the tree, Seer Andragon?  Didn’t he know these felons would try and jump the festival?  Perhaps he did, but the huge crowd that always seems to follow Seers around, shouting at the top of their lungs ("Can I have a quest?"… "Why are you green?"…) has probably drowned out any warnings he may have given.

Nothing like waking up with a big goose egg on your skull to remind you that you live with a psycho.  Rubbing some liniment into his bruised, atrophied muscles, Mu escaped the house while Kagero wasn’t looking to make his way to the village, where he hoped to find a sympathetic ear to his plight.  As usual, his tribulations only seem to arouse mirth in his erstwhile guildmates, as illustrated here by Carnifex, who is having a laugh at Mu’s expense.

To arms!  Agents of the AoD had been harassing the village for several days (another reason for Mu to avoid it), and now it seemed there was a battle in progress.  After endless pointless questing, Musashi had a serious death wish, and actually managed to show up to the village before everything was completely over.  Here he runs desperately towards the enemy, trying to pick them off from a safe distance, as Palehorse (mounted), Deathwish Dragon (navy cloak), and Ni’Vek (looking at Mu in disbelief) beat him to it.

What’s this… Mu in his ridiculous plate again?  A call had gone out via Ni’Vek LOA regarding those pesky Followers of Armageddon and their world-ending spell, based on information from KNIGHT VENTRUETM of Caps Lock.  Mu had been pestered by these FoA and their meaningless quests long enough!  Even certain death was preferable to more of their pointless rumors and hints.
