Alright, so if you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to post once a week. Every Tuesday, that’s the plan (and it is failing miserably).
I’ve had a busy week in Star Wars. Levie (my leveling trader who sells the cheap pass power) has had a very interesting week. Scuffles with the neighbors, his new apprentice/employee Teokip (my engineer trader on the 2nd account) and a bit of frightening slow business. Bonedead’s life has been a bit dull, though he made $5 million in one transaction thanks to a little marketing. I see an apprentice/employee in his near future.
I’d like to start referring to my characters by their names. I’ve taken a bit to Roleplaying on Levie, Yrqo, and Teokip Oho due to my neighbors being RPers. Let us start off telling about my recent neighbor encounters.
When I first started playing Levie a half a year ago I made some friends. Well I made one friend, but he had a friend who was showing him the game. They were the “Resistance”, when I asked what they were resisting they said everything. I realized they were a couple of kids by the way they talked.
Fast forward to now and my buddy no longer plays, but his friend does. My house is next to his in this sweet ass valley. He now has a big guild hall and apparently a guild and some members. My first encounter with them was on Teokip. He was in the shop when behind him he heard: “Get off Resistance property!” I turned around, looked him in the face, and threw up the ole /rude and promptly logged off. (To avoid drama and to continue my Trader work which takes multiple characters)
Later that day while on Levie, he approaches me in my shop yet again and goes through his whole spiel. So I said: “Hey guy, you know what, I’m going to build another house right now and place it right next to this one.” That’s exactly what I did too.
After that I was bothered by the guy a couple more times, I offered to sell him my land and eventually he just gave up.
My neighbors and their guild are really into roleplaying. They do the Storyteller shit and everything. What is the Storyteller shit? Well, apparently you can place your own NPCs and objects as a Storyteller (after you start a “Story”, you invite people to it) and then you and your friends can act out a little scene. This is what my neighbors do for fun. Yrqo is a Spy, so I was able to observe them in their natural state for a bit lawl.
A couple of days pass and the leader is in my shop yet again, I wonder what the crap he wants, and he starts talking about me joining his guild. I tried to change the subject by saying that I found some really good Steel for making harvesters, but he was persistent saying: “That’s why I want you to join.” lol
I took down most of my harvesters due to not selling anything for a few days and having hardly any money. Here I was trying to run harvesters on 3 toons with a nonexistent budget; not to mention my accounts were running out of time soon and I didn’t have enough RL money due to my employer switching payroll companies.
I took a little break, played some CS, and avoided my computer like the plague.
Then I decided that I would get to work some on Bonedead and that inspired me to do some work on The Ohos as well. I settle my differences with my neighbors, join a guild, and realize that patience truly is a virtue (kinda) as well. But that’s for the next post.
