According to Glenn, this mysterious Conquistador, who could possibly be checking if there were any demands for slaves, offered to sell his red-and-yellow-striped outfit to Glenn for a million silver and his “soul”. It’s a relief that he didn’t accept the offer, or our colony could have been doomed.
Vigilance had some fun stealing peaks. He might tell us what he was peeking at in later news. We do not know what yet, but he should be entertaining us all, hopefully.
ometimes players surprise us with how charitable they are, but often you forget such surprises after running across horrible events or taking a look at the most active threads.
anox, a pious puritan doing good deeds in the New World, has tried to share such random acts of compassion on the forums. However, the thread hasn’t gained the sympathy of many and is stuck at one page. These actions may be too common for some puritans to talk about, but if you ever feel like sharing such experiences with others, feel free to share. No matter how much we love drama, it is nice to feel warm about your fellow players sometimes.
he race for the next MPD award has been more heated than we had expected. Several candidates are pushing hard to win one in the forums every day, getting hinnomed one by one, but none seem to give up. Who would you vote for the next MPD award?
The MPD Award
cammers seem to be prospering in Boston. Since most traders use alts, kinning before transaction does not seem to help. However, making a list of scammer’s names is not a bad thing and posting their names should be more encouraged. A describe option would really help as well, and hopefully we will see that implemented very soon.
The best thing you can do right now to stop scammers is to ask for their identity through forum pms and look through their posting history before making a deal. Confirm that the individual you are messaging on the forums is the same guy you are trading with in game. Many trustworthy traders make use of the forum, and value their reputations there. Still, there are some traders who love to be “notorious”, or may have many alt accounts, and will try to trick you. Following these steps will help bring us one step closer to eradicating scammers, even if it is a slow process.
Forum thread for discussion
Failed thread but nonetheless
he Ragers of Lumberwood, yet again let rogoku, aka coonman, create another thread despite knowing his horrible reputation on the forums and IRC. According to the thread, rogoku and his mates have been threatening his neighbors of Trinity where wrath lives. Wrath is known to be naughty, “borrowing” stuff from neighbors without consent, so it is entirely possible that rogoku was only trying to re-obtain what belonged to him after being robbed.
People of Trinity do not seem to read the forums and did not respond nor ask for help from available rangers, all of which wanted a reason to smack rogoku. In the end, rogoku and Arcanist were tricked into a fight and killed by Vigilance disguised as Chief and Gunnar.
Yasso, the leader of TROL has promised me on IRC that we would be seeing some new entertainment presented by them on the forums in the near future. I only hope that he will not let rogoku write up their story this time.
exar is currently looking for a ranger to take care of a robber. He has posted a bounty of “900 gold”, people are still unclear if he means to offer 900 silver, or some other unknown currency. I hope some noble rangers will help you, no matter what you are offering, Lexar!
arwoth and his crew planned a trap, and it seems they managed to catch a few Russian players in it. MrEllu started a thread showing the site of the crime and put a stress on one of them saying “Entering Trinsic“, which is the name of one of the bases Darwoth was using, and shows a screenshot of this familiar hermit base as the criminal’s home.
The thread itself was pretty strange from the start when MrEllu was mentioning Chief Poop in OP and more so when one of the russians, Wildvlad said “Russia VS Cheif round 2″, because most forumers who had read the thread knew that this place did not belong to Chief, unless of course he was playing with Darwoth. “Oh forum drama… first thing to read when i woke up”, MrEllu once said in IRC. How can he pretend to be unknowing, and leave his rangers uninformed?
“Russian mafia hitmen are an endless resource”, MrEllu said in one of his posts after Darwoth successfully killed those Russian rangers. Would a noble citizen choose such a phrase to talk about the noble rangers he hired with his petty amount of silver? I cannot help but doubt it.
ylan started his literature in CoH, called “A Pilgrim’s Journal” and it currently has 5 entries. It deals with the traumatic misadventures of a young pilgrim, related in the form of a diary. The Courant eagerly awaits the next episode of this dark tale.
re our volunteer moderators abusing their power on the forums? Maybe, maybe not. You can laugh out loud with sabinati‘s new thread in CoH on this and you may be able to find out if they are actually abusing or not. You find it bizarre? Maybe you need to learn the true fun of trolling and being trolled!
amerZakh started making his videos again. One of his latest videos introduced the Courant in it! Thanks, GamerZakh! (you cannot die from swimming though! you get KO’d when you run out of phlegm.)
