Blockade Intent: Multiple Reply to this Post

Ahoy!

When you can ask one's help in all humility, without a nickel to your name supposedly, and call them a hypocrite when they decide to do what isn't in your interests, you're a sycophantic hypocrite.

Since I don't tolerate hypocrisy, I am going to openly declare blockades starting August 15, 2017.

Where: Blackstar's Medium and larger islands
Why: Lie to me once, shame on you, lie to me twice, shame on... still you.
Pay: 1.5K/seg to start
Sinking: Depends on how many junks they have left

Cheers,

MULTIPLE BLOCKADES;

Cheaters always accuse you of cheating..

Liars always accuse you of lying..

Insecure people make you feel insecure..

Pay attention to how people treat you, it's a reflection of who they really are..

Sure it would be, but your above statement doesn't help, if you REALLY want to get along that is.

My parents taught me at a very early age to stay away from poisonous snakes. Sometimes their disguises give the impression they are harmless. But not so their actual effect. 99.9% of players on this ocean are nice and peace loving. They want to just play and have fun. Sad but in our society there will always be some that prefer chaos. I am part of that peace-loving crowd. I am also a moral person and that morality goes with me everywhere. Now you can chop this message up in little pieces if you want, I will still be an honorable person.

(quoted with spelling errors)


I retired once. for 2 months with a goodbye in forums. Never have I throw tournaments or made fusses about leaving, unlike your friends. Make claims that are at least real. Also, it's Mrs. Even if it takes you longer to type it.

Reediting this post to add: Reviewing the goodbye thread, Stumbling Solo and Babylon royals all have posted a good bye on Shore Leave, (which I reiterate I have used ONCE in 10 years) at some point or another. And It simply points to the fact that we all have cycles where we come and go from the game. It's not a big deal.

May I ask where is my good bye post? Since I am royal and even twice in Stumbling Solo?

is it not ok for one to quit playing then come back? I'm sure many has done this?.. I don't see the reason for a childish remark on behalf of one doing that?? .. I mean I know you love trying to be a bully to luna whenever you can emerlaus but for what cause? to be a laughing stock? it proves nothing other then showing your intelligence on useless remarks.. I see some never grow up an try to bring down others when themselves are unhappy. an people like that I think need to look at themselves in the mirror an ask themselves why.

It certainly is very acceptable to quit and return, been there done that. My favourite part of the whole thing is, that she can start an argument based on debasing my emotional intelligence, and relegating me to the status of deranged, yet charming, psychopath.

I'm glad that you can acquiesce her whimsical and foolish desires, yet have the courage to ridicule those who can call a spade a spade.

As for mirrors, perhaps you all should invest in one, I did, and I can see that my intellectual figure is fit as a whistle, but, is yours?

Cheers,

This from the guy who goes as far as to make fun of my health and death infant on global chat. Because you did make fun of it, again.

Also I mentioned no names. But if the Crown fits...

What about me? I never said goodbye and was royal until I asked not to be. Is my hoards of poe and items not real either?

Your posts come across like in that flag they manipulate and don't take anyone serious or let them have the power to talk. It's completely the opposite.

Seems SO important I will make a correction statement. SOME ,( basically i traced the last three back : Keerin, 14 and Majorjr ) have also used Shore Leave to say goodbye. And This is STILL a regular practice and it means nothing. Its was an example.

Island attraction buildings take something like 20k-60k to build, depending a lot on how much you pay for labor and materials.

 
oh and if the island rent is lowered does it make having one cost less?

well, not really. they are like the shops on outpost islands. All the extra tax you raise just goes to the fort/palace, the higher rent just shifts stuff around.

I think that depends a lot on the island and what attractions other islands in the arch have.

For a long time, Kirin had a trading post because economically, it was a busy island that could be helped by attracting <merchant> bots and also an explorer's hall because there wasn't another in the arch. Now? dunno.

https://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Attraction
has the basic info
I have not seen any difference in bot activity around Cnossos or Guava before or after Black Market or Trading Post. With tax rate set at 0%, income from sales tax covers rent on palace and 1 attraction with room to spare. I rarely use maps from an Explorer Hall but the main reason for me not liking to buy black boxes on TLM is I get mostly maps and they can be anywhere on any route connecting to it, including 1 league from DN. Labyrinth is surrounded by short routes and people using maps usually need stock as well, and selling it does benefit island economy.
