"Crazy Joe Initiates himself" by Crazy Joe
Do not adjust your monitor - This entire episode
is in Black and White for Nostalgia.
Right after we initiate the N|S, I decide I want to finally get a rune to the Forth level of Hythloth. I go through my 4 runebooks, and notice that I have 2 runes marked Hythloth, when I clearly only been there once. I recall stealing some runes in town from a mage, and that one of these must be it. I know mine is marked to the Front door outside the entrance, but no idea where his leads to. I know I type fast and make constant spelling mistakes, so I recall off the rune that is labeled 'Hythoth'
I royally screwed up.
I didn't assume I was going
to die so soon, and I kept the Hythloth
rune on me instead of locking it down
on the roof. The only way out for me
is to walk to the surface.
Might as well give a tour....
Sorry, but I have to shrink these down. If I'm giving a short tour, you need to see
what I got to see. To make this trip even more fun, my UOAM is screwed up
and lost my settings, I have no idea where the stairs are.
Why couldn't I steal a rune to the inside of this fence? This is hilarious spot to gate
anyone to! I guess I'll come back down again.
I'm lost, and frustrated.
I can only blame myself.
I know how my victims feel now.
Anyone know what room this is? Those look like pods from 'Alien'.
I personally paged a GM in August 2002 and FINALLY got these rocks removed.
Took long enough, eh?
Just about every other room looks like this. I don't think I'll be coming back soon.
And yet here is a great safe spot to mark a rune.
Wouldn't it be nice if OSI
programmed a monster to escort
YOU out of a dungeon?
Something is familiar about this spot.
It took me 17 minutes. That rune was to the forth floor, so
I consider my mission a success.
I ran into someone playing Kiss the Dragon.
I'm upset that I'm dead and can't Loot, and
I think his Guild title shows he's a tad
upset about the housing difficulty.
I tell ChaoticJelly to open a gate for me
at to the LBSC Guest Cottage.
Let this be a lesson to you - make friends with someone
who can cast 8th level magic, and lock down a rune when
your going somewhere you may die.
I remark this rune - "Final Initiation"
