    So, I just stopped by the Inn in New Haven to grab a bite to eat.  After savoring my meal, I went upstairs, then noticed that a dog had followed me.  Curious, I attempted to tame the dog.  Turned out to be easier than I thought.  Subsequently, I changed the dog's name to Cat.  And now I am resting in one of the Inn's upper rooms with my new found best friend.  Soon I may undertake a perilous journey through the Moongate in order to locate West Britannia, wherein I have been informed a Jeweler resides.  For I have many pieces of jewelry which I previously looted from rather fashionable Skeletons and Zombies.  Unfortunately, even my magic map has not enabled me to locate a Jeweler in New Haven.  And so, I have determined to make the Dangerous Journey to another city.  For the first time.  Thankfully, I still have my divine protection which prevents monsters and beasts from initiating combat with me.  So I might just make it to West Britannia without being torn apart or otherwise mutilated beyond recognition.
    Ahh, how things have changed, my friend. 
    Such protections were not available when I was a youth in those lands. 
    In those foul days, the Moongates were often surrounded by killers of all kinds. On your journ, for example, if you were to be fortunate enough not to be hunted by humanity's foul sorts, you would certainly have been swallowed whole by a giant serpent. 


    Also, back in my early adventure days, getting to where you wanted to go, through a Moongate, was a tricky thing. 
    They alternated destinations, and you had no control. They scrolled through the destinations like an age'ed monk reading a list very, very, slowly. But their order never changed, and they were based on the moons, so an informed person could know when to enter them for their correct destination. 

    By the way, when you have the funds available, buy a sextant and use it to see what the moons are doing. 

    May the eight Virtues protect thee, young sir.

    p.s. I send you this scroll about the virtues, should you desire to know more about them.

    p.s.s. Please tip the deliverer, I was short on coin.  

    Cat and I thank thee.  Btw, do I need to feed my pets?

    get in the moongate have Trammel , Brittania selected , follow road NE till you cross a bridge .. you will runinto the W Brit bank , right next to it sits the Jewelry shop

    I arrived in Britannia safely.  There I was able to sell my numerous rings, bracelets, and necklaces for the great sum of 147 Gold Pieces.  Although I previously paid 4500 Gold Pieces for 100 Crossbow Bolts.  I'm not sure, but I feel like I'm being cheated somehow.  Either Gold is not worth as I would think it should be, or all these merchants are unscrupulous rogues, thieves, and/or highwaymen.
    Aye, you have to be careful in dealing with merchants. But truthfully, I do not know if that price is honest, for it has been many years since I traveled the lands.

    if you are going to be an archer make your own bolts , or make an alt , when you are established later you can turn Fletching down and redirect those points into a skill you need them ....

    Aye, what he hath said. 
    They also need to feel loyal if you want them to follow orders. 
    It was always best practice to feed them and also issue commands to see if they are in the spirit of following your orders. 
    They are more hesitant to attack when ordered than they are to "stay", if I recall rightly. 
    But it's not usually an issue if you feed them once in a while. 

    Dragons, many years ago when they were first tamed, were terrible at being tamed. Their masters had to feed them constantly. But Tamers since then have mastered the art, and they are not so terrible at being loyal as then.

    As a Paladin of Noble Birth and Esteemed Lineage, I consider it beneath my station to take up a common trade.  (Except for Lumberjacking and perhaps lighting campfires.  But that's just so I can practice my skill with an axe and increase my already formidable strength.)

    EDIT:  Also, I'm not going to be an archer.  Just thought I should have some skill with the bow.  Could be useful at times.

    If you are going to play seriously when you get your house you will need some lets say Vassals( alts) to support your crusades..
     
      A Fletcher ,  A Blacksmith, A MAge/Inscription/ a Cook , An Alchemist ..

      Now you may not need all of those and you can combine them ..

      I have a GM Alchy with GM inscription, and GM cooking .. she never leaves the house ( well she does recall to town to W Brit to grab Bods each day .. thats it )

      Another that is a Fletcher/Blacksmith

      and another that is just a Tailor

    Aye, you have to be careful in dealing with merchants. But truthfully, I do not know if that price is honest, for it has been many years since I traveled the lands. 

     a player can make those bolts really fast for free, even a brand new player that did not train ..

      Train Lumberjacking 350 gold ..

       Train Fletching 350 gold
     
       Buy Fletching Kit 12 gold

       Buy axe 35 gold

       Chop Trees Free 2 minutes

      Kill birds for feathers .. 10 minutes max

      Fletch 5 seconds ..

     So under 800 gold first time .. after that they are free to make .. all you want  up to 100 uses on fletching kit

    So, I just stopped by the Inn in New Haven to grab a bite to eat.  After savoring my meal, I went upstairs, then noticed that a dog had followed me.  Curious, I attempted to tame the dog.  Turned out to be easier than I thought.  Subsequently, I changed the dog's name to Cat.  And now I am resting in one of the Inn's upper rooms with my new found best friend.  Soon I may undertake a perilous journey through the Moongate in order to locate West Britannia, wherein I have been informed a Jeweler resides.  For I have many pieces of jewelry which I previously looted from rather fashionable Skeletons and Zombies.  Unfortunately, even my magic map has not enabled me to locate a Jeweler in New Haven.  And so, I have determined to make the Dangerous Journey to another city.  For the first time.  Thankfully, I still have my divine protection which prevents monsters and beasts from initiating combat with me.  So I might just make it to West Britannia without being torn apart or otherwise mutilated beyond recognition.

    get in the moongate have Trammel , Brittania selected , follow road NE till you cross a bridge .. you will runinto the W Brit bank , right next to it sits the Jewelry shop

    I arrived in Britannia safely.  There I was able to sell my numerous rings, bracelets, and necklaces for the great sum of 147 Gold Pieces.  Although I previously paid 4500 Gold Pieces for 100 Crossbow Bolts.  I'm not sure, but I feel like I'm being cheated somehow.  Either Gold is not worth as I would think it should be, or all these merchants are unscrupulous rogues, thieves, and/or highwaymen.
    Aye, you have to be careful in dealing with merchants. But truthfully, I do not know if that price is honest, for it has been many years since I traveled the lands. 

     a player can make those bolts really fast for free, even a brand new player that did not train ..

      Train Lumberjacking 350 gold ..

       Train Fletching 350 gold
     
       Buy Fletching Kit 12 gold

       Buy axe 35 gold

       Chop Trees Free 2 minutes

      Kill birds for feathers .. 10 minutes max

      Fletch 5 seconds ..

     So under 800 gold first time .. after that they are free to make .. all you want  up to 100 uses on fletching kit



    I'll have to drop Archery?  Why?

    Do I have to learn Bushido?  I'm not a Samurai.  Seems kinda weird.  Also, what brought the Ninja and Samurai to Britannia?  Did someone kidnap their Empress and bring her to Skara Brae?

    Okay.  Well, as long as there are Samurai in Britannia, I guess I could take advantage of it.  Anyway, was it ever explained why the Ninja & Samurai arrived in Britannia?

    (Anyway, I only just started training Archery a bit.  So you're saying I should cease and desist and just sell all my bows & arrows?)

    I've played UO a bit lately.  I have to say that I'd rather play UO than FFXIV, GW2, BDO, WoW, DDO, or any number of newer MMORPGs.  Not totally sure about ESO as I haven't really played it much yet.

    lol yeah ESO is just more of the same...You aren't missing anything there.

    That's what I thought.  How much did you play ESO before deciding it wasn't worth your time?

    They had a new expansion, along with a GM events, that opened a new land (continent or large island) that was oriental themed. 
    So, more or less, yes.

    Doesn't Healing, along with Anatomy, allow you to disarm your oponent? 
    If so, does that work out as an option?

    Edit...ooops, I see you have healing and anatomy in your list.

    So they never explained where they came from or why they were there?  A new land nearby (like really close to a land based on Medieval Europe) just happened to be based on the Japanese?  Okay then.

    I guess just because Ninjas & Samurais = Cool.
