  2. A Confession

    There is something that has been bothering me for some time. Nay not an itch I cannot scratch. Nor a slight pain in the back of my eyes. It is an act that to this day haunts my every night. A great weight that burdens and presses down upon my very soul! It is said confession eases troubled minds. Even a small respite will be welcome, so let us turn back the clock… It was early in Epic’s life span; though, not too early. It had been some time since the BL had raided around the Strongbox. Sticking people with so many arrows, they were as walking pincushions. I was in need of a quick ride, and was looking at the various sailboats beached nearby. Upon one in particular did my gaze befall, and I did covet it. “A sailboat!†I thought to myself full in my hubris, “I’ll steal it! And no one will ever know!†Oh my ignorance! Oh my pride! My ego! My shame! Would that I could reach back across time and throttle myself! Tickled the lock my fingers did (curses thrice upon them!), and there before me was such arms, armor, and gear! Jewels and coin! Take it all I did, ignoring the owner’s mark and name! Spent and used it all. Frittered it away on food, drink, and pleasurable company. Such pointless pursuits! Though, the more I ate, the more the food turned to ash in my mouth, No amount of drink would quench my thirst, And all the pleasurable company in the world would not slake my lust. A cursed man I was! Tested I was! Punished disproportionately to the nature of my crime! If only clothing myself in sackcloth and ashes, wailing and gnashing of teeth would ease me of this! How I to know the owner would become a demigod and in time (alot of time) even a god?!
  3. A Thievery Tutorial...

    ...or rather a introductory primer of sorts. Been considering the need for one, and I even have a rough outline and draft made. Before getting involved in that I wish to see if there is even really a need or interest in one. After all there's tutorials on almost everything else... even ones for the tutorials. One would think if there was really a demand, someone would have done it already. So... what do you think? Should there be one?If so, what are your main concerns or questions in that area?What doesn't the wiki already seem to make clear?What would you look for?EDIT: Something came up I felt I should articulate... I am not talking about ways of gaming the game's rules or exploiting loopholes in those rules. For example imho thievery belongs on pvp servers, where players by the very act of being on such servers have consented to being targets. Kill or be killed basically. Anyone doing such on a Freedom server deserves getting reported and the ensuing consequences. Just because I play a rogue doesnt mean I do not have rules or guidelines. They just are not your rules ;P EDIT: Heres the rough outline: Introduction This is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to all things thievery and such in Wurm. There's just no fun in revealing all to begin with, and I'm lazy. Rather it is to provide help with the basics and some possible hypothetical applications. For those who wish to up their game from common "rag-pickers". If one is seeking to better understand the psychological principles, I recommend the following article: http://www.spring.org.uk/2010/01/the-7-psychological-principles-of-scams-protect-yourself-by-learning-the-techniques.php Furthermore, I can neither confirm nor deny any firsthand knowledge of the usage of these skills ingame. Outline: I. Fundamentals A. Body Control (Stealth and everything else) B. Lockpicking C. Stealing D. Traps E. Stealth a. Actual b. Mines c. Mounts II. Training A. Body Control B. Lockpicking C. Stealing D. Traps III. Intermediary A. Solo vs. Group Tactics B. Diversions or Framing a. Loudmouth Idiots b. Locks From Known Thieves C. Traps D. Know Your Enemy and Thyself E. Knowing a "good" Fence a. Helps if considered respectable and reliable in general. b. Can be the same person as your smith. c. Doesn't ask too many questions about that shiny new ship ur selling him. IV. Hypothetically-Speaking A. Spying B. Sabotage C. Downright dirty scoundrel Example section: Lockpicking Lockpicking Lockpicking is fairly self-explanatory. Its the skill for picking locks. In Wurm this allows one to bypass locked doors on structures, vehicles, ships, and containers. This guide will simply refer to all lockable items as containers. The tools needed, lockpicks, can only be made by a locksmith of some skill, so one may wish to pick this up as a side skill as you will go through picks frequently. Knowing a good smith or merchant is another good idea. There are additional benefits from such a relationship, which will be covered later. Lockpicks will break... ALOT. Less so as the quality is higher, and it helps to have several dozen in multiple satchels on one's belt ready to activate. Picks of a ql less than twenty of the lock's ql will not even work to begin with. Once the lock is picked, it will stay open for so many minutes as indicated by Examining, as in the case of gate locks, or as with padlocks, the lock will come off and appear in your inventory. The difficulty of the lock can vary greatly and is dependent on several factors: the container ql, pick ql, examined lock ql (see table 1.1), your skill, the type of container, etc. Ships are more difficult than say a chest, and larger ships more so. The calculated chance is displayed on the menu next to Pick Lock. Table 1.1: Examined Lock Quality Ranges Very poor 1 - 9.99ql Poor 10 - 19.99ql Below average 20 - 29.99ql Okay 30 - 39.99ql Above average 40 - 49.99ql Pretty good 50 - 59.99ql Good 60 - 69.99ql Very good 70 - 79.99ql Exceptional 80 - 89.99ql Fantastic 90 - 99.99ql Some say a minimum of 30 Lockpicking is needed to be effective, personally its more around 50. Also do not be discouraged by lockpicking chances of less than 5%, these containers are still vulnerable to those with time and determination.... and alot of lockpicks. Third Person: [19:19:16] Klaa picks the lock of the small chest. [19:18:20] Klaa silently curses as he fails to pick the lock of the small chest. First Person: [19:18:20] You start to pick the lock of the small chest. [19:18:20] You fail to pick the lock of the small chest. EDIT: Project currently on back burner due to RL.
  4. Pretty much as thievery was in Ultima Online (stealing from houses wasn't an option... usually). Being able to steal from people's inventory, higher levels unlock equipped gear as an option. Snooping lets one get a (accuracy varies) look of aforementioned inventory. Sleight of hand enables one to slip something unseen into target inventory (player or container). Weight and ql impact difficulty. The usual permissions and reputation hits. Cannot be performed within a certain time period of fighting (unless really high level?)
  5. I live just below mookton on the main N/S road and I did keep my gates unlocked due to the fact i have friends in the surrounding area that I let use my forge and such. But when i got on today my pumpkins were gone, around 22 kg of cotton, all the items in my fsb (not too much was in it but its all gone) my 60ql anvils (large and small) i had bought from Nicrolis. Any leads would be appreciated but mainly this is a heads up for anybody living around my area. -UPDATE- Found my small anvil at my friends, it seems it was dropped there but everything else is unaccounted for. A friend/local/neighbour went wandering and found my other anvil by some old shack. So thats off the list now too, but at least the word is out there and I hope people learn from my mistake as well
