Re: Olive palace etc

Do us all a favor and do one more experiment: try to dust the palace. I'm sure it'll work out great.

And the word of a royal in that context is a representation of the flag. The fact that one royal went against the word of another in a flag matter is amusing, I hope he enjoyed being shafted and marginalized in public like that.

Re: Olive palace etc

The reasons i do things are my own and no one else's. I think it was Vanguard who coined the phrase "Because I can". Do i need any other reason? Some will call me a douche, others will just shrug it off. Quite honestly i don't care what anybody thinks or says about me anymore. All these forums turn into is everyone of the 7 people who post get to choose a flavour of the week and tart and moan about them.

I said it once and I will say it again,

I'M FAMOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Olive palace etc

Thank you for all supportive posts!

I think I have to clarify, as I was in a hurry and not in a great mood when starting the thread, thus making points that were maybe not entirely relevant.

My furniture was not dusted. It was returned to me in new condition, which, I guess, means that the former governor's promise was kept to some extent. I did not reclaim my furniture, because that would have ruined the decoration and I had absolutely no reason to reclaim it, or use for the furniture elsewhere.

Most of what was lost was, apart from the standard props that make the palace look nice and have functions, as Dahlgren said, the time, effort and PoE I (And Thalia) put into recolouring the props, to make the palace unique.

The left side suits with armors in the throne room were replaced with furniture, as well as all the suits in the entrance hall, because Thalia told me that that would be cheaper than recouloring anyway, and I had no intention of ever reclaiming it. The hanging banners, right side suits of armor in the throne room and the throne are not replacable, and were recoloured props.

So Whiterose, thanks for the offer, but I still have the furniture. That just wouldn't be enough to redecorate (if I would ever want to be that naive again).

And Greatness, if I was naive, that was when I decorated the palace at all, and I actually don't regret that. It was very nice while it lasted. There was no way I could protect it after losing the island.

Point still stands, however, that PA trashed the palace, bank and real estate, decorated or not, for no apparent reason. I'm still not impressed.

This reminds me of the Belgica and Monlizzy -> Wokbok's fleet incident.

Even if you can't really do anything with props (versus a fleet), it's still trashy HAHAGEDDIT and low.

Obviously your flag trusted you to run the island properly. You have achieved nothing good for yourself, your flag or for the ocean. Not caring what people think is not a good enough reason to ruin all the buildings. There is very little incentive to blockade islands as it, so making an island less appealing does no one any favours.

This whole act you are putting on saying lolwhocares is really pathetic Hurly. Taking your anger out on the whole ocean because people called you lame for double scuttling doesnt fix anything it has just made it worse for you guys. Have a think about some other random flag doing the same thing and see if you would still think it was ^5 worthy.

When you and PA snap out of this BS phase of political suicide and want to try again, let me know.

In my personal opinion, this is irrelevant to the thread topic.

Apparently, someone trashed the portrait easel at TLM. That sucks, but we have no idea who the vandal was. I just know that it was not done, nor discovered, while Legacy held the island.

All props that were dusted in Legacy palaces were purely decorative, and dusted to be replaced with custom decorative furniture. Complete props + furniture gets quite crowded, and doesn't look very good. All our decorations were left behind when we lost the islands, up until the point where you and Dahlgren started dusting them at TLM, and Q was not allowed to reclaim them because "Dahlgren is refurnishing that scene".

In my opinion, there is a huge difference between trashing all props in several infrastructure buildings, including custom recoloured props, and then leaving the buildings empty and trashing a few decorative props to replace with furniture. You, and everyone else, are of course free to be of a different opinion.

As i have already said, i think it was shithouse to dust the props on olive. I will also say though, Legacy dusting props to decorate was a pretty selfish thing to do also. Even though the rooms were made all pretty and custom designed its a fairly egotistical thing to assume that all future owners of the island will enjoy your chosen theme. Basically, by dusting the props to make way for your furniture gives a new island holder 2 choices : accept what you have done with the place, or return your furniture to you and have to refurnish the entire place so its not totally bare. Recolouring the props can at least be changed back, but totally removing props to suit yourself is a whole different story.


I understand that Avienda went to alot of expense and trouble making the islands to her taste and i am sure some people probably think it was lovely. I personally think the thought of winning an island and walking into the palace only to be greeted with a big fat reminder of who last owned it as hideous. I would return all furniture back to the owner aswell. The boys on PA went too far by dusting, but Legacy werent too much better by removing props either. I don't know if i am coming across as a hypocrite or not (because of how strongly i am against what PA have done), its just how i see it.

Re: Olive palace etc

Honestly you've been refunded for our shenanigans so that's probably something you want to let rest a little. Nevertheless, it's not entirely irrelevant as it is possible to decorate a palace without dusting all the props. What kind of delusions of grandeur do you have if you think you will never lose the palace thus leaving it empty. Of course what Hurly did was worse I don't think anyone is trying to argue with that but you've still both dusted palace props, with more and less malicious intent of course.

I believe the only relevance the arguement has is that there's a certain amount of irony that you of all people run this arguement. That does however not make this thread any less valid. However it's obvius Hurly is just a troll that grabs attention through poor behaviour because he's not good enough to catch it any other way. I say it'd be easier for us to stop feeding Mr Attention flirt and just blockade the guy when they fail to scuttle.

Shady and Dahl, I understand what you mean, but I can't agree with you.

I personally don't. I have always loved custom decorated palaces, and bazaars etc too for that matter. Plain palaces everywhere is quite boring, in my oponion. When we took Harmattan, I was amazed by what Aaronmann had left behind (sadly, his decorations have been partly trashed now, though), and rather than destroying it, we added to it, enhancing the theme.

There was also a palace that I loved walking in to when I was a greenie. I can't find it now, I think it might have been Labyrinth Moors under RM (Riddle In The Middle), decorated by Seepnah, but I don't know. Anyway, I used to find that palace amazing, and I will never agree that customising a palace is a bad thing, as long as it's done with the purpose of improving, and not the purpose of destroying out of spite.

But then again, we have never blockaded out of hate, and never felt the need to hurt our opponents in any way possible. Maybe if you have those feelings, then you see a decorated palace differently.
Dahlgren wrote:

I mentioned this as the reason for reclaiming furniture from other palaces, that we had planned to leave as they were up until that point. Refund is all good and fine, but if it had been our collection of OM dummies at Swampfen, or LE furniture at Napi that was dusted, then a few dubs wouldn't have done us much good.

Re: Olive palace etc

It was six dummies, and you have been refunded. Also as much as Q might have loved the little Avienda shrine that was made, it doesn't mean that anyone else appreciated it so as such the props were needlessly trashed in the eyes of the rest of the ocean who don't need a shrine in which to worship you.
