Lessons Learned

(or why never to give Cronus a 'free pass')

For one brief shining moment I thought Cronus was my hero. My internet had failed halfway through a shift so I called him in up asking if he could take over. His voice was a little husky from sleep when he answered the phone and then listened to my desperate plea. By the time I finished asking, I could almost hear the smile in his voice as he answered to the affirmative. The smile turned into a laugh as he continued:

'You do realise I can do anything to your ships and you can't stop me'.

Dummy Cronus

In my innocence, I thought he was just joking. Because I was so grateful for him coming to my rescue I did a very silly thing. I gave him a Free Pass. His evil cackle when I said that will haunt me for a long, long time.

My internet wasn't back for almost a day. In that time, I chewed my nails with worry for my ships. Cronus only had to take over for two hours, I thought. He couldn't have done that much damage, could he?

So Many Cronus

As soon as I was able to connect again, I sent a message to Cronus thanking him for his help (after all, it is always nice to be polite!). We chatted for a little while before he had to leave. His last message to me was 'Because you will want to know, the answer is 150'.

Huh?

He refused to answer anymore questions.

Of course, that all became painfully clear when I went aboard 'Watching You' on Malachite. I couldn't move. I couldn't even see the deck of my ship. For a few seconds I could not begin to comprehend what Cronus had done in his few brief hours aboard my ship.

One hundred and fifty Cronus swordfighting and rumble dummies. Now that is just evil.

I thought it would be a nice welcome back gift. I was toiling into the wee hours of the morning inscribing those dummies. I'm sorry, next time I'll put in a little more effort and push it to 200. :D

Sell them to players for 100 PoE a piece, that'll teach him to leave his Dummies lying around.

...Then again, if he placed them I guess that would all go back into his inventory. Bummer.

I am fascinated by your stories. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. There’s much more to be gained. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.

his words and discount soccer cleats were subjected to instant analysis and querulous criticism. The audience of 70 million Americans gathered to hear white soccer shoes was inherited by a small band of network commentators and self-appointed analysts, the majority of whom expressed in one way or another their hostility to what nike mercurial victory had to say. It was obvious that their minds were made up in advance. Those who recall the fumbling and groping that followed President Johnson’s dramatic disclosure of his intention not to seek adidas f50 adizeros have seen these men in a genuine state of nonpreparedness. http://www.soccershoesclearance.com/ LJP
