Kasmir played a new trapper in HC on Friday night and got the trapper
up to level 25 and even got the trapper by Diablo. Kasmir was doing
well. And he did that in public games.

Kasmir got PKed on Sunday night.

He was in a game. A zon comes into the game and asks him if he would
like to be rushed. Kasmir says "Sure" and heads out to the Stony Field
where the zon was. He says it happened so fast.

Hostility / Skull and Crossbones

Death

Pow! Poor Kasmir.

I felt bad for him when he told me this.

I thought the scrpit for a guided arrow PK was handled. At least I
think that is what killed him. Any ideas from others?

I ignore offers for rushes in public games in HC.

Long live Kasmir!

Please direct me (us) to the nearest Amazon Basin on West US.

BTW, will Bongo vouch for your honorability? :) 

Just kidding. I have seen your posts for over a year.

That was the best description of HC PK cheat I have ever seen. It
should be on every FAQ on the subject.

His mistake: playing in a HC pubbie after clevel 9. Join the Amazon
Basin and play with honorable, courteous and considerate HC players.

Of course. At least 99% of HC PKs are evil cheaters and cowards.
They are not interested in playing or fighting or facing a fair
challenge, only in inflicting suffering on other human beings at no
risk to themselves. They are essentially sociopaths: despicable,
sub-human filth, no better than the scum who write viruses. The
desire to destroy what others have built is the infallible mark of an
evil, criminal, sub-human mentality, and the only real difference
between a HC PK and a serial killer is that the HC PK is a coward who
does not have the jam to carry out his desire to do evil in RL.

As long as he plays HC in pubbies, it will continue to happen to him.
The great majority of my deaths in pubbies have been to PK cheats, not
monsters.

It could have been any of a number of cheats.

>I ignore offers for rushes in public games in HC.

That will not prevent you from being PKed if you keep playing in HC
pubbies.

That was TPPK or Trigger, or whatever you want to call the script hack. The
Guided Arrow 'fix' in 1.10 is that it no longer pierces. In 1.09 it pierced,
so one arrow hit a person multiple times. This made it deadly for nearly any
character. But now that it no longer pierces it is only effective against
lower lifed characters (like Kasmir's fledgling Sorc) who can be killed in
one or two shots.

Oh the joys of public games.

I have emailed these links to Kasmir and Caal.

Kasmir says he wants me to hook up first. Oh well, I shall.

In the meantime Kasmir's trapper is now level 16. He also has a MA
sasin in the 20s. But he is leary about playing her.

Let me know what kind of character you plan on putting together and
I'll check my mules for gear.

A reminder of out groups chars.

Me:
level 53 conviction/fanatic/zealot
level 34 LF/PlaguaZon

Kasmir
level 16 Trapper

Caal
level 38 summoner

Tymmermortis
Level ?? Trapper (prolly in the 50s)
Level ?? BaldeFurysin

Given my penchant for barbs, perhaps I should make one. However in HC,
I think I would make a Screamer with less emphasis on combat. I suspect
that a melee barb could be tough to keep alive in hell.

Tymme? Is Mark still playing after all these years? I guess molecular
biology isn't that fascinating after all :o )

What account name(s) are you playing on, And Ladder or nonLadder? I'll look
for you when I get on.

I popped on West last night for a bit and my ping was around 100, a dream
compared to dial up. Between Chant games and Baal runs I got a Sorc up to
L40. I figure an Enchantress would be a good support/utility character so
that's the way I went. And I don't know what I did, but my new computer
suddenly can connect to B-Net. So I played a new Wolf tonight and got him
through A1, level 17 I think. Both are on my *Bongo-Fury2 account.

I will look but there is a possibility that my next HC session will be
Sat AM 7-9 AM EST

I have a few SC chars that I am also playing. I am finishing these up
while playing HC and will not be making any new SC chars. But I will
still be sending those out for hell runs witrh tae and the gang

If I finish my SC quests early enough tonight I will jump into HC and
look for all above including Bongo and you.

sorc? does she like conviction? stupid question huh?

Well, if anyone sees the aforemention Tymme, tell him I said hello, and
ask him if he's still at Berkeley or if he finally flew the coop.

He's been involved in some other game fora bit but plans on returning.
