I will quit this game and give away anything I own on the said date.

Reason: Dark Helm handout by GM. Which counteracts all my efforts to get it the regular way. Hundreds of hours lost, and I am perfectly sure same thing will happen with Cap Hat or any other desirable but hard-to-get item, sooner or later.

I don't see any way to get the game in the direction I want, and this is, hard-to-get-items should be hard to get, and rare items should be rare. This game is too old, too many players there are crying for free and more rares, nobody wants to show some effort. So if I'd say something official, I'd be talking against a wall. I better miss out on that.
So, no reason to beg me to stay or anything, my decision is made. I am sad as I enjoyed the game. But not this way, when anything you work on with your char is destroyed by some 5 Minutes of fun for somebody else.

Gonna try and seek for a different RPG. Maybe I'll report back when I found some.

Hope to see you on sunday.

For my super-rare or valuable items, I do not want to drop them.

Instead I would like you to establish some kind of list of who-picks-first. Below is a list of items in question. Amongst them is the super rare "scarab armlet", the unique "mask of blinking evil (pink)" and the quite valuable "Heart of Isis".

If you manage to establish a pick-list, also players could participate that are not online on sunday.

The crap items will be dropped, but hold, theres some 6 k iron powders and 29 sapphires amongst them, quite some value in total, so it should give good prices to everybody. Also my 619 pearls which I am most proud of as they show my fruitless efforts for the Cap Hat, and 8 more sailor hats that I couldnt get rid of.

My money goes to CRC Mascot.

The following items are in question:

Banshee Bow
Black Pearl
Dark Petal
Guy Fawkes Mask
Mask of Blinking Evil (pink)
Pan Hat
2x red stockings
Lazurite Robe
Wooden Staff
2x Bull Helmet
Heart of Isis
Murderer Crown
Pointy Witch Hat
Scarab Armlet

Thats 16 items. So if you want more on the pick-list, we can add stuff like Wizard robe or rings. If you need less picks, truncate the list.
Also minor rares like christmas ornaments and easter eggs are available but as they are not that valuable, I thought about dropping them.

I have just decided to not quit. So the drop party is canceled.

The game has become too dear to me to just leave it like this. On the other hand I got involved way too much on an emotional over-reaction. Need to get some distance again, so this will result in a reduced gameplay.

Shame on me! For all this troubles and discussions I have caused and then not do what I have promised!

What matters is that you have decided to stay. :)

I am glad you decided to stay...

Even though it is satisfying to gain a rare item (especially one that you fought very hard to get) they are, after all, pixels on your screen - not real.
What IS real - is the persons behind the characters who plays for years, whom you become acquaintances or even friends with.

For my part - I mostly use TMW for relaxing by going for some goal (small or big) until i feel bored - then moves to something else - most of the time alone, sometimes together with my son.

see you (all) around

Such a good decision !

We don't know each other, Aisen, but I would have been sad that a member of a crew leave for such a reason. Getting some distance and questioning your link to TMW is a good decision.

This game has been very important for me also in the past, and I understand your reaction.

To say it all, I regularly have to simply uninstall manaplus and breath away during month to not being totally absorbed by this way too much addictive universe ;-)
