Location: IN UR BAG, STEALIN UR GLD
Although I am not at liberty to divulge my methods, I today became aware of a transaction between Monika (aka princesspeach) and HI IM MIKE. My dear friend GuardianKnight was to act as broker. The transaction involved the removal of one keep so that another might be placed in its stead. I arrived at the designated location prepared for action. It was not long before action was afoot.

Image

I had hoped that a keep deed would be carelessly placed in a bag. Alas, there was no such deed. At the key moment, I search through a series of trapped pouches. I assumed at this point that the jig was up. Sure enough, Monika cast reveal, but I quickly stealthed out of range. I decided that a new strategy would be called for.

The keep was dropped. I stealthed out to the middle of the newly open area and put out a call over the guild chat: Someone bring a character with a house deed! Some fine property has opened up on lovely Marble Island, right next door to Monika.

Image

Image

It wasn't long before one of my associates heard the call of duty. He would be there as soon as humanly possible, but I would have to hope I could go unnoticed long enough. Monika and GuardianKnight were perplexed. The keep just wouldn't fit. They tried it from the front. They tried it from the back. They tried it from the sides. There was just two seconds ago a keep there. How could a new one not fit? At this point, a fellow by the name of John arrived.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Now you know that at chumbucket and Associates one of our mottoes is We don't do it for the loots, but we are happy to get said loots. (Our other motto is When you think home security, think chumbucket and Associates.) So I made a proposition.

Image

Image

Monika feigned a lack of interest, while GuardianKnight insulted me with his offer of 50,000 gold. As I said at the time, a pittance. In comes HI IM MIKE of mYm (aka Matron Yoinked MyKeep). He indicated some interest in purchasing the plot of land. I don't blame him. It is a fine location. But it is not for me to decide a price.

Image

Image

Image

Image

HI IM MIKE expressed some skepticism regarding the desirability of the location.

Image

He saw the wisdom in my remarks, while GuardianKnight saw only red.

Image

Image

Image

With initial negotiations out of the way, he and GuardianKnight were quite curious about one thing: How did I know that all of this was going down? How could it be that I would be in just the right spot, at just the right time?

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

HI IM MIKE was unsatisfied with my answer. He left, only to return in the form of Rufus, a thief.

Image

Monika soon came back out. I informed her of the potential real estate deals in her neighborhood. She was eager to make an offer.

Image

Image

Image

Awkward!

Image

Image

Image

Image

So there you have it, folks. She is quite happy as long as someone doesn't move in next door. As I said in the screenshot, I am going to suggest to my associate that he put it up for auction: House and land on fabulous Marble Island, next to a gorgeous marble temple and the tower of one of the shard's most feared yet beloved warriors. Perfect for young couples looking to build a future together. I'll keep you updated on what he decides.


Postscript

Accusations have been leveled. I will only note that Derrick is not crazy enough to make me GM, counselor, forum moderator, or anything else. No further comments with be forthcoming on these matters.

GuardianKnight wrote:
I'm sure there will be screenshots soon but chumbucket popping up at a house transfer that i wasn't even sure where it was until the last minute is too much of a coincidence. Either we have a mod here that is abusing his power or chumbucket has psychic powers.

I really better not find out that chum has a gm or counselor character that can go invisible and locate people.

The suspects for the character known as Chumbucket have been narrowed yet again.

Suspects:
Bigoud as number one suspect, but he could be any of the Ca.
Monika, the victim is #1 suspect always until proven otherwise.
Blackfoot. Very creative with roleplaying and acting. Matches profile.
GM or Counselor - Really not likely but chumbucket has a weird knack for being in the right place at the right time. Could be sitting invisible somewhere tracking people.

Moderator of forums- watching pms to see when deals are going down.

Just turn yourself in and make it easy on yourself. Otherwise i'm gonna punch you in the throat and turn you upside down on a tall building and punch you in the crotch over and over until you talk.



<WoozyRargar> how did u know that kid bought the house

The plot thickens! Which leads me to the topic question of this very special November edition of the Daily Planet: Who is chumbucket, really? Clark Kent of The Daily Planet reports.

*starts to clap loudly in the silence of everything*

Oh yes very good story indeed. Yes I was foolish enough to think no one was around. And no he is not a moderator or admin he just happened to be at skara at the right place at the right time.

But I am sorry to say you will never make a dime from me nor anyone else haha. The house is nowhere near my tower, which was my original intentions for buying such keep. Even though I wanted the keep and foolishly dropped it to mark a rune in the back, (I was not aware you could teleport back there somehow) it matters to me not.

Out of my anger I remained yet calm and vigil. I preceded to then go and get the two story and the small house by my tower placed. I ran my other char all around the island to avoid detection from chumbucket and others to avoid any suspicion of my plans.

chumbuckets weakness was to foolishly continue his bragging, as he was to concentrated on making his next tale of adventure.. I got the house placed.

The house chum had placed it located on the far west side. Which is no where near me whatsoever. I did however want to buy it back but then decided not to because it was not even worth it, for you will never get a dime out of me. An anyone foolish enough to buy a meaningless house for more than 42k is a true fool indeed, as it will bear no affect on me whatsoever.

Like I said in the picture, I am a warrior. I care not for such petty things. Sad that the infamous cA adventures has come this. And as for your new so called strategy, there was no strategy. You only attempted to benefit from my one mistake of ultimate foolishness and carelessness, which you have failed to do so.

And that is all I have to say about that.

HI BUCKY! :P

Wish I was there for it.

This is why I shouldn't eat dinner. Gets in the way of my UOing.

Why do you insist on mentioning my name in your stories? I feel dirty.

I'm not really sure what you accomplished in your little story tbh, besides that you ended up with 42k less than what you started with, and a undesirable small house. Monika accomplished what she wanted, by sectioning off her tower from any neighbors. So I mean if huge wastes of time are the highlights of your day, then I guess you succeeded.

Pretty sure he will. If no one else steps up, I'll buy it. I've always wanted a nice little house on an island.

And you are more than welcome to buy it from him. Just best bet is to stay to the western side of the island. The eastern side is owned by the Cult and you'll probably find yourself eating dirt if you come around us. Kthx and hope to see ya soon on our beautiful island. :)

How does someone that has only been here a matter of weeks and doesn't even have a 7x dexer yet afford a keep?

...the Cult?

Sorry, but the nickname 'the Cult' has already been taken by \+/. Any mention of the Cult will immediately bring to mind \+/ and not *_*
