In no particular order:

Hunter Legends:
- Fenrir
- Cairna
- Dalnoth
- Tsunamy
- Kenchio

Hunter Moments:
- the cade board that was blocked by GF's
- defeating the black ship
- The legendary series of blockades that kept me up for hours

There are so many people and moments that would deserve a place in these lists or be amazing runner-ups.



Gosh, 4 years and a half... so much happened through the years.

Re: Hunting memmories

For me there will always be a few pirates that will stand out..

When I just started playing PP Gunnermooch gave me 20k poe out of the blue because I reminded him of something personal. That was over 4 years ago and till I stop playing one day I will always remember that.


Another player I admire is Dalnoth. I saw hom politicking like mad many times in such a lovely way. Hordes of greenie and older players swordfighting him and to give them at least a fighting chance he gave away loads of swords of their choice if they only had sticks.


Then there is Duckling.. The bestest Captain and Queen and the loveliest woman .. I do miss her a lot. Some of the game died for me when she left to retire..


I also loved the cheekiness of Jackpot.. The bestest MAA ever!! No one ever will be as good as her..
If you were ever lucky enough to get jobbed by Alicecut and Jackpot on any SMH it was just fantastic
The day Alicecut stopped smh'ing I stopped buying bravery badges..

The best ever Flottila runs were with Striders and also Duckling.. That was a poe spinner for new players like me..


The most fun and poe for any jobber ever was the Coerced Coexistence V Beyond The Veil drama around Armstrong.

Re: Hunting memmories

The old Hunter has always been a place of respite during rough seas in the realm of real-life. Memories from the dashing, charming beginnings will always accompany me. From my original, meager complement of a Dhow, a WB, and the WF Dependent Alewife, I would expand and grow until reaching my zenith during the campaigns of Spiritofsail and, since, consolidating my assets and refining my abilities instead.

The most vivid memory has to be the poe spamming incident. I was very much in the thick of controversy as numerous fellow high-level officials, many of which I knew well and socialized with, became embroiled in scrutiny and were found to be at the center of the fiasco. I can't say I didn't make a few poe's off of the market then, but I never created or accepted illegitimate poe.

Yet the most fond memory will always be of the 'Dep Ale', as I named her. She stuck through with me for the longest time before succumbing to trickery and fraud. Until I purchased my manor, she was my house as well. Ironically, I sold the manor later to pay for an Imperial War Frigate that now serves the same purpose.

Nowadays, I spend ample amounts of time simply aboard the IWF. As you can imagine, all the furniture from a well-dressed manor would lavishly bathe even a specialized frigate in luxury. Green/black knights, a dozen or so throwbacks from an era where prices were a fraction of today's, stoically stand erect at the entrance and hallway to the crew's quarters. Three rooms replace the single of the standard, and I fitted them as a bedroom, liquor cabinet, and dining room. Unfortunately, I've found the colored lights have not outlasted the test of time and do not operate on board the vessel. The vessel itself has probably lost significant value due to the fact I merrily tore down many of the Empire's adornings to replace them with my own.

Speaking of the money end of YPP, while I adore blacksmithing and have a rising solid/gm in the craft, the only business I was successful at was distilling. For a span, I was the premier dealer on Aim for swill, always offering the lowest prices. Indeed, the right-click method was an assembly line of alcoholic sustenance for those wanting an alternative to fine rum.

On the more belligerent side, there is a story to tell. I remember the great campaigns to capture the really overall useless islands north of aim by Spiritofsail, Oyyedet (my real-life friend who can't spell backwards worth a dumb.), and myself. I never liked that bastard SoS, really. He stole away three WF's away from me forever in the tidings of a harbor assault (or blackade, or w/e you twats call it these days!)

And if this sounds choppy, missing something, and disconnected, it's because I wrote it again at three in the morning after my browser shat all over me.

God bless you all, Hunter ocean, OOO, and God bless America.

Tedd.

Re: Hunting memmories

I remember my old character a few years back. Spiritofsail, Stacex and some others took me into my first crew I dedicated time to. Captaindutch (my old pirate) has now withered away and was reborn as Oneiromancer.

Never actually being proficient in any puzzles (besides rigging when it came out) I had always struggled to enter SMHs, and CIs under the old NB system, never knowing why I wasn't accepted. Worse yet, I remember some saying "Planking all Fine riggers" at one point. Quite discriminatory when the puzzle had come out.

Bad stuff: Spiritofsail got into deep doodoo during the prelude and aftermath of an Iocane cade, which somehow resulted in my hacking and loss of a sloop and WB. Following that, I quit for a year and returned to find my character gone, soon to be reborn as Oneiromancer.

I later came back and retained my skill in rigging, allowing me to ascend to SMHs and CIs rather quickly. The HS release that came out some time later was quite a disappointment as I remember; Low payout and crappy items by then. Failing to accrue my modest fortune through poker, I eventually got Ultimate rigging one day by accident in an elite pillage.

I remember joining a crew with Sources, where I met Turkeys; We interacted very little until I returned to Spiritofsail's flag; we soon became friends, along with Kingmet, whom I often joke cynically over his "gay/liberal/atheist/anti-christian world domination scheme." - Fun times.

I had later developed a love for trinkets, wanting to collect any type at all costs; Not quite sure when that happened. It was another aspect of the game I hadn't yet discovered, but it hooked me into amassing today nearly all of the SMH/CI trinkets, a boat load of BC, VR, IO and LE trinkets, and a great deal of BM trinkets. Getting the next unique trinket in any collection now becomes my top priority.

Other mentions- Sailiordavid, who played with me way back when and still does so now (On a different account) really kept me into the game.

-Izzycooll, for sharing my love for the CI/SMH trinkets way back when.

-All of my previous captains who gave me a home when I needed it

-Turkeys and Kingmet (Won't elaborate here)

-That one time when Coerced Coexistence fought off a 40-strength Vargas fleet defending Aimuari.

-Anyone who sold me trinkets when I had asked for it; There's no way I can list em.

-EDIT: And Chickenlord, By request.

As this now comes to an end, I'll look forward to seeing Sage meshed with Hunter. Rig fight me. Someone.

Re: Hunting memmories

For the one or two years I had played on Hunter, I have to say, it was a great experience.

I remember the time Wasted took Alkaid and trashed it leading to Clandestine's revival even if short lived.

I remember the night tournaments were spread between Gutsu/Threepeat and Groo attempting to get the other banned

I remember 24 Hour SMHs that killed my sight for a good 48 hours.

I remember Cleansanchez (who didn't)

I remember Cairnas attack on Armstrong for an extensive amount of time

I remember beating Gene in SF

I remember getting Hermit and Jammers in back to back rounds in a drinking familiar tournament

I remember the fall of RR and the rise of KO

And other things that I have forgotten

Re: Hunting memmories

The bad: The very personal attacks/ vendettas between several prominent players who took it to the forums...

The good: Scarymuffin, Cleansanchez, Gunnermooch, Athens, Jacada. After all I started with scary and moved in with Gunner and after a while I moved with Belle and Tomrizzo. Why isn't his name up here yet?! Tommy is always the best.

Re: Hunting memmories

When i was reading this thread, i smiled. Seeing so many names and memories of others it brought back memories of myself from so long ago. From Midnight to Hunter, still as greenie, i joined the first crew i was invited to, just because i had no clue what it was all about. After that i joined Skull Bashers, Beyond The Veil, where i was introduced to the blockade scene rather fast. I was privileged to meet so many amazing, sweet players from all oceans. Too many memories to write down. Bad and sad memories, but without doubt also so many sweet, warm memories. Friends who went and did not come back. Friends who went and did come back, if only it was for a chat every now and then or advise. We cried together, we laughed together, we helped each other and listened to each other. This is what makes this game so special in my eyes.

Too many memories, but i will never forget the blockade weekends in BTV (Cairna, you still owe me sleep :P). The long chats with Belle about everything that was in our minds (I miss you Belle). The jokes between Ramzi, Legalpirate, Ibka and Shinnj (poor Legal). Cleansanchez, i will never forget how he used to wear an apron in the beginning and how proud he was on that (I won't ever forget you Cleany). The night that i was freaked out because Imrans put me on a ship and sent me in a sinky blockade with the words : Goooo Sonye!!! (I love you Immzy). The night that i lost my last poes in poker and Gholiath kept talking to me for hours to make sure i would not ever go poker again with my last poes (pftt). The night that Tomrizzo logged on, slightly drunk, and ordered me to come to his house together with 3 others because he wanted a portrait with us. I still have no clue how he managed to print it.

As i write this so many more memories come up, but i cannot possibly write all down. I want to thank each of you for making this game so amazing.
