3/03/01 - Crazy Joe of Napa Goes on Patrol
After last night, I decide to return to Napa and visit Shame, and go on Patrol. I was a bit confused though, and accidentally robbed two people that were wearing a red bandana - I was under the impression GUL was protecting Liches, Mages, and Earth Elementals (earth elementals we do not protect, and I only to target those NOT wearing a red bandana otherwise).
I arrive in Shame and quickly see two individuals at the front door. YoBubba is a formidable foe- he carries a halberd, something too heavy for me to steal. However I decide to step in and take a peek at their belongings.
In my profession, distracting my victims long enough to get close is essential.
I have several tactics to get them off their guard, and decide to test a new scheme.
dagadain has nothing of interest, but Yobubba does carry a magic sword I like.
Even though he carries a halberd, I take my chances with him.
I return later after hiding the katana somewhere in the dungeon, and
dagagain decides to serve justice. After a short chase, both take their
leave and I don't see them again.
Mystical has been warned about his lack of proper head gear,
and I see him a minute later at the entrance again. I relived him
of his weapon when I saw it go into his backpack.
This nude man had nothing of value on him, but however
he warns me of a band of mages outside wishing to do me harm.
I take myself to the northern part of shame, and met someone else
that unfortunately did have a red bandana, and again I unrightfully
take action against them.
I fail to steal a magic war hammer in her bag.
Atheina realizes of my true intentions, and attacks! I disarm the sword
from her hands, and successfully steal the magic war hammer.
Atheina is unaware of the fact she is slapping me, and
I have enough time to steal her sword.
She attacks again, unaware maybe again that I already have
her sword, and I target the shield, but fail.
Before I can give the proper GUL speech, she takes off.
Perhaps I should hand out books in exchange for the weapons?
I haven't been with GUL long, but if memory serves me right
Aman'Ra was a member, and knows well that he should be
wearing a red bandana! Well, seeing how no warning is needed to this man,
I help myself to his belongings.
I steal a weapon he was carrying in his pack!
He attacks, and I take chase to the east and
hide in the midst of many earth elementals and
I am in a tight spot, and being revealed now would
mean certain death. A fellow GUL member shows up
in time to hear of Aman'Ra's loss. They take their leave,
and my night is finished.
After consulting Jade of GUL, I realized a few errors I made
and hope the next time I go on Patrol I can make good on my mistakes.
