Olive palace etc

Before you say that, yes, I know they took the island and it's theirs to treat as they please.

And yes, I know we should have been there defending, if we didn't want this to happen.

But I still think that this is worth pointing out.

When I had Olive, I spent some time and effort decorating the palace. I wanted it to look like a green olive with pimento, and renamed it Pimento. I painted the entrance hall red, and all other rooms light green. After weeks of petitioning back and forth with Thalia, she recoloured the hanging banners in the entrance hall to red, and the throne and banners in the throne room to light green. I replaced the suits with armor to fit the colour scheme, and added red flowers and hanging fans to increase the "redness" of the Pimento entrance hall. I also added a laid table for eight upstairs, along with a bar, to make it a party hall. Sadly, I have no screenshots of it, but I know that I showed some of you.

I also built explorer's halls on Olive and Swampfen, which was very appreciated by those who use those maps etc, since EHs are apparently better when double.

When PA took Olive, I had the following conversation with the first governor of the island (not Hurly): (Including all the irrelevant tells because i don't want to post edited logs)


[15:41:16] (governor) tells ye, "Would you like to buy Olive Island back?"
[15:41:46] Ye told (governor), "Are you drunk?"
[15:41:57] (governor) tells ye, "ummm no"
[15:42:14] Ye told (governor), "But while we're talking about it"
[15:42:50] Ye told (governor), "I didn't remove my furniture because I expected you to be decent enough to not trash it just for the sake of it, like Dahlgren did at TLM"
[15:42:54] Ye told (governor), "Am I correct?"
[15:43:06] (governor) tells ye, "yeah i wont trash it, too nice"
[15:43:14] Ye told (governor), "Glad to hear :)"
[15:43:24] Ye told (governor), "I've spent a couple of millions on it, lol"
[15:43:36] (governor) tells ye, "wow the most ive ever owned was 200k"
[15:44:29] Ye told (governor), "Recolouring the hanging banners and the throne cost 800K, I think"
[15:44:36] (governor) tells ye, ":O"
[15:44:45] Ye told (governor), "Maybe.. 300K? To replace the armors"
[15:45:15] Ye told (governor), "The stuff upstairs... i didn't really count... but I think each chair is about 20K etc"
[15:45:27] Ye told (governor), "+ all the paint"
[15:45:30] (governor)tells ye, "wow Legacy must have ahd $$$"
[15:46:00] Ye told (governor), "Ya, lol"
[15:46:33] Ye told (governor), "I never got around to doing something about the other rooms, though :( I took it slow because I'm not really a furnisher"
[15:46:41] (governor) tells ye, "hahaha"
[15:47:05] Ye told (governor), "But I wanted the Olive palace to be an olive with red pimento"
[15:47:12] Ye told (governor), "And I renamed it too"

[15:47:17] (governor) tells ye, "Ill leave it as it is"
[15:47:25] Ye told (governor), "Thanks :)"
[15:47:33] (governor) tells ye, ":)"

Now Hurly is governor, and the palace looks like this:





It seems that some of my screenies got chat in them, so I'll leave them out, you can see for yourselves though.

And the bank:


Real estate:


And explorer's hall (admittedly, less serious):



Even if I had money, it would be pretty pointless to offer it for drops on Olive, with all the scuttles. But I can offer Legacy's jobber and staff support to 3Ps in the scuttle cades, as well as drops on PA, when/if that becomes possible.

I'm not impressed, Hurly.

Re: Olive palace etc

Trashing props in the palace, real estate, bank and the explorer's hall ain't right. The last time thorn or betorox trashed props, they got brick bats for their actions.

You might not like Avienda's post about scuttle shields but to trash every single props available on Olive then gloating about it on the island's notice board or news in the bank, real estate and explorer's hall in retaliation is just hard to believe.

Re: Olive palace etc

I'm sorry Avi I know you put a lot of effort/time/money into the Palace and made it look good, pathetic to see a established player like Hurly pull a move like this; I know there's not much that can be done about this other that make sure PA never wins an island again and try to make them lose Olive this weekend however for whatever is worth it if Legacy wins Olive back in the future I'll like to donate you the armors so you can start refurnishing it.

Re: Olive palace etc

hurromgspazz

I don't understand why people trash the furniture in buildings that transfer ownership with changes in rule in general, much less when someone clearly put in the effort to decorate the place.

There's nothing to be done about it now except redecorate it when the island is retaken (unless there's someway to return it to its previous state and unless Hurly continues to play with his first science kit) but I guess this is a warning to all how low the guys at PA will sink to pull one over on you because it's clear they aren't on a competitive level in any game-sanctioned competition.

Edit: The only thing you can do in-game would be a war dec, I guess, but IIRC, Hurly didn't represent us too well when TP was at war with VG, so I wouldn't count on him willingly stepping into any such arena.

Re: Olive palace etc

I am in no way condoning Hurly's actions but I think it was pretty naive to leave your furniture on an isle you dont own anymore.

Its a nice gesture placing your trust in them NOT to destroy your furniture, nice but naive.

What I don't get is why the rest of you are getting butt hurt over it? Its Avienda's furniture. Shes allowed to be angry (Along with the rest of Legacy since their queen got disrespected) and want to rip em to shreds. It what way does it affect the rest of you, the fact that her furniture got dusted?

Re: Olive palace etc

Palaces are public buildings, when a new pirate whisks to get their new furniture they go to the palace, when they do the SF/Rumble/Drinking challenges they are whisked to the palaces; it doesn't matter if it was Aviendas furniture or the basic props the effect is the same.

Re: Olive palace etc

The thing is, it wasn't just her furniture. It was all the furniture they could possibly get rid of. Although I do feel that doing it to Avienda's stuff when she'd clearly put a lot of effort into it was definitely a low move.

Mimi sniped me so I'll just leave it at that.

It appears that Avienda initially asked the governor if she should worry about her furniture and was told that it wouldn't be touched.

And she posted it in a public forum, no? Should it not be up for discussion? I'm pretty sure everybody here would be disappointed if someone were to do this so it's beneficial to set the precedent that this isn't acceptable behavior.

Why were people "butthurt" when Nemor had his octo stolen? Because they empathize and don't like seeing stuff like that happen to people for no reason.

Re: Olive palace etc

What has failed to have been mentioned is that apart from the aesthetical discomforts the palace is bestowed with certain furniture to function. For instance a portrait easel allows greenies to take their first portrait, the tournament board and parlor table upstairs also have obvius roles. When you tear up the palace like PA did here you make sure nobody can use it for anything but collecting taxes, it's pretty damn stupid.

This is also the case when furniture is removed and then replaced by a player's furniture, as they tend to reclaim it when they lose the island. If you have a piece of prop with a function, please don't trash it.

Re: Olive palace etc

Did they dust her furniture? Or did they remove it, in which case it would go back to her?

Also, I'm unclear if Avi had removed most of the props and then added her own furniture or if PA had removed the props.

Not advocating dusting props in "public" buildings in any case.

Re: Olive palace etc

Some of the furniture belong to Avi however a big part were props including the banners, they are generally white and Avienda had to petition to get them recolored to LG and pay for that but they are palace props, think about them as charms I guess.

Re: Olive palace etc

Yeah, I understand about the banners... but Avi's post indicated that she "replaced" the suits of armor, so I'm just wondering if she had dusted props to replace them with her furniture.

And if her furniture was returned to her.

Again, not condoning PA's removal of props either.

Re: Olive palace etc

The initial point was valid on some level, but the last 20 or so posts to it were pictures and "nananana i can do what i want!" posts, most of which were in direct violation of forum rules, OMs were well within their rights to sink it. It was highly obvious the relevance of the thread was dead, at that point.

Re: Olive palace etc

Im not attempting to defend Hurly in anyway, But If you (Avi) put so much time and effort into making the palace and other buildings on Olive nicer, and dumped money into changing banners (Lol) , Why did Legacy not defend the island? PA owns the island now (Sadly) , and can do what ever they want with the buildings.

Re: Olive palace etc

this thread is all about being petty
we own the island we can do what ever we want to it and at least hurly sent it back he could have dusted it
and if you have an issue third party and stop trying to simply defame us because that was the word of the previous governor not the current one
and if you wanted to make a lasting legacy dont use a building that changes ownership
