Constructing the Ultimate (YPP) Curse Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Feeling somewhat vexed (shall we say) by other threads in other groups, I started waxing lyrical, and wrote an old-fashioned curse for use in-game...

"I beseech the Spirits of Fair Play and Good Sportsmanship to avenge me upon my Enemies! May the lazing Tarts of a thousand Docks infest my Enemies' every Pillage! May their every Trade Run be hounded by a never-ending stream of over-powered Brigand spawns! And may they suffer these torments for the next thousand and one Releases!..."

What would you add to this? Or what would you say instead? It must be in the same theme (i.e. pirate-y and game-related) to qualify. ;-)

Note to Admins: I was in a quandary as to which group here to post this: General Parley? (Curses and hexes are in the genre of piracy.) Mariner's Muse? (This is an artistic challenge, of sorts.) Or Events? (A challenge is a competition, by its very nature, after all.) So if you feel this thread belongs elsewhere, please accept my apologies in advance for posting in the wrong place.

For blockade staff: May the other side continually increase pay by 50 PoE!

For blockade jobbers: May all the paywar blockades you find end five minutes after you join them

Not very subtle, are we, however, past is the past, so I'll play!

May the skimping Merchanter be cursed with Gem Thieves forever upon the seas

A thousand pineapples to the gold hungry foragers, and all their ilk

Woe upon the heads of any wagering fools, may your disconnects be frequent and inconvenient
