  • The early adventures of Tessa Garlisk! :-)

    Well, how to start this...

    Thievery seems just great! That said, I figured I'd make this post and tell you about my noobish adventures. Everyone loves noobish adventures!

    In no particular order, here they are. (On a side not, I've conferred with Dak so I get the names of maps and areas correct.)



    Ok, one of my earliest most exciting moments was on Stronghold. I'd snuck into the castle, and managed to get into the conferrance room (big room in the middle). As i'm sitting there in a shadow, a human guard comes in and places 2 bots, about 5 feet apart. One bot is looking at a door toward the vault. The other is looking directly the other way, while meanwhile, I sit off to the side.

    I don't want to use any of my stuff to get out, but I can't see how else I could, with 2 AI right there looking at both exits.
    Well, I moved over a little, and saw a THIRD exit! But still, that leaves the guards...however, neither of them are looking at this exit. I hop down from a table onto the carpet: Nothing. I slowly crouch-walked between the 2 guards, and out into freedom!

    It doesn't seem like much in writing, but its pretty cool to be sneaking around in broad light, surrounded on 2 sides by guards, and not be seen.




    Just today, I got my first mario kill, and I didn't even know what happened when I did! It was on Darkened Enlightenment, and I was running around on a roof near a pool. Well, I was returning to an area where I had been KOed, and jumped off the roof. There was a slight stutter in my view, a scream, and a message that said "Siriuk was killed by Tessa Garlisk's Nothing."
    That was perplexing, but I soon realized that I had squished him. Pretty cool!



    Also today, I played a great game on Nostalgia. I can't remember who I was teamed with. Locke and Industrialism I think. We were thieving against Gladius, (AI) Turnbull, ZT, and another.

    The first major incident occured when I tried to get the lyre out of the Gallery. I had to jump over a set of caltrops and a mine, grab the lyre, and jump again, all the while Gladius entered the room at the same time I did. He chased me into the library, and I hid into one of the shadows. I figured he'd soon find me with flares, so I shot a vine arrow into the middle bookshelf. When he climbed it, I took off, and made it to the main hall gallery.

    At this point, the other thieves had died, after we'd ALMOST escaped twice. I ended up sneaking around the map and had 2400 loot of 2800 total.

    This match didn't end well for me, though. I had many close calls, but eventually Gladius shot me as I was opening a door.



    Very exciting stuff! Great games! And the people...you guys are a bit nutty, but a lot nicer than what I've had in games like TO.

    Understatement...

    Nice adventure stories, Tessa! Thievery stories are always good. That wasn't too noobish though, you apparently survived many hard situations. In similar situations as a noob I got always squished! I still do as a thief... (Heh, it was maybe my second game online, when I spawned as a guard and instantly, just a microsecond later got KO'ed by FixXxer... Nice welcoming to TUT and stuff, kind of "better get used to this, cause it will happen a lot!" :lol: )
    My cats are black! How about yours?

      Well, if I listed all the times I've been killed, KOed, or otherwise incapacitated already...well, it'd be too much to list.

        I have this theory about some of Tessa's success.

        As someone who only knows some of the maps from watching me, a little Single Player, and only some basic knowledge of how things work, Tes doesn't seem to feel restricted by anything.

        For instance, twice today, I saw her go to spots on a map that I never, EVER, would have tried to escape to, because I know the maps.

        The first was on Skeltstonshead, in the far back at the crates. I know that the wall doesn't go anywhere, and would have tried to run in circles around the crates and tried to get out somehow. Tessa jumped onto the wall, and stayed there until the guards left, but not before trying to jump down the other side of the wall.

        Stuff like that.


        But, mostly, I blame luck. Err, attribute luck.

          You did quit well considering. Surprised the hell outta me after I heard the loot goal was reached on Nostalgia and I got back to the display room momments later to see which way you got in/out so I could track you. Only to find EVERY single trap was in place and the lyre gone . Made me scratch my head for a second there :lol:

          And yes the people of ThieveryUT are compared to any other gaming community vary friendly most of the time(albeit we are strang at times to new people because of all the inside jokes I imagin)

            wow! sounds a lot like my early days (and some of more recent ones...)

            tessa, never be afraid to try something that nobody else has: it usually gets you somewhere you shouldn't be! I've got a litst of about fifty places i've gotten to so far, including the top of hte cliffs on Skeltston, and above the cave in DE.

            Aside from that, you sound like a col person. I really hope to meet you ingame sometime! 8)

                        Hey, I did see that....it was total luck. I'm sure with the AI you at least knew what you were doing.

                              LR! What a sweetie saying that I am a "Cool Gamer." littlek puts on her magnifyer glasses. Oh crap that says "OLD" gamer. Well LR, GA and my other oldie friends....we are wine....a fine cabernet. But now that red wine gives me headaches, I have been switching to "Red Stripe" beer.
