Re: Upgrade your gear (low level)

Yes, but can you get that amount running through Nordhaven Jail or Izumi Mine, which most new characters tend to do until they can roam further?

Re: Shrike's trades

That's not entirely true . . . I read the forums daily ( granted, I may be one of the few ), but I simply don't have anything that "anyone" is looking for . . . I don't have the MR to hang with Dragons ( at least, not more than one at a time ), so I rarely find anything worth note.

Re: Ideas thread 2010

I would agree with that as well . . . just because the target isn't the brightest bulb in the drawer doesn't mean that the ones around him are just as dim. Not bad . . . I had thought strictly along the one on one lines, but you raise a good point.

Re: Ideas thread 2010

When a rogue is in stealth, and performs a backstab, how about some chance ( based on stealth skill / dexterity formula ) that allows them to stay in stealth? The logic being that, the bugger remained hidden up to this point, an...

Re: Ideas thread 2010

Oh how did you guys survive non-online games before there were cheats (speaking late 70s and 80s here)? Speaking as someone who played the earlier Ultima's ( specifically Ultima III ), I didn't, pure and simple. That is the only Ultima betwen I and IV that I didn't eventually beat. Granted, even ba...

Hey Doc,

I'm not sure if it's something on my side, or what, but every time I try logging in on that end, it cycles me back to the login screen without logging me in. Very strange. :-S
