• Words of Wisdom

    Those of you from past generations are inferior species mentally, as you’ve proven so graciously here. We will drown you in our wake; all your preconceived notions will be invalidated. Our generation will make the world more of a better place than you had even dreamed of. Then perhaps you will admit you were wrong, completely wrong, for saying we had no value as people just because we were teenagers.”
    C. Dalton, under the belief that I am 80 years old and that he's the hero in an anime movie or something.  Read more: The C. Dalton Zone

So you’ve spent your fourteen years of life engaged in the unrelenting pursuit of the perfect score in every computer game known to man.  Now you’ve decided to adjust your coke-bottle glasses on your nose, apply a fresh coat of clearasil and take on the world.  After memorizing every episode of Star Trek and grasping the lesson’s of life taught by Buffy (yes, I know you think she’s a babe), you have decided to share your wisdom with the world.  But how to show what a macho cool dude you are without actually exposing yourself to the risks inherent in real life?  Fortunately, you are a Geek and know everything there is to know about the Internet.  You look around  briefly and you find out about online gaming.  You can play Quake and prove that you are more skilled in personal combat than any muscleheaded marine or play interactive fighting games and demonstrate your martial arts prowess in a hundred perfect executions of the spinning sweep kick.  But what about your true genius, the exercise of strategic thought?  You’ve mastered the sublety of Stratego, the logistics of Risk, and even the complexities of Axis and Allies.  You are ready to go forth and conquer!

How long ago did Mu receive a package from the court of Lord British saying he had license to visit the new lands?  How long did Mu ignore the package?  How long did he not bother to visit the new lands after he finally opened it because it all seemed horribly boring?  Only the combined whinings and pleadings of Maraxus, Phaedra (in the hat), and Kagero (late through the gate as usual) convinced him to hesitantly put on his unfashionable armor and head off to Encyclopaedia Magicka in Moonglow to say pointless-sounding nonsense words along with a bunch of other suckers and head off to the expanded world of boredom.  It was commonly rumored that these "new lands" were nothing more than Lord British’s last-ditch attempt to squeeze a few more farthings out of his disgruntled  subjects before they all move to Norrath, and as such Musashi was unwilling to contribute, until  British lowered his entry fee to 7 gold, which was just about the right price for the decorative coaster the license would eventually serve as.

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.
