    Can someone tell me why my house is surrounded by Orc Assassins of apparent boss level damage? I logged in today to spend some time playing, and was immediately one-shotted right outside my place. Then my Cu was downed in a couple hits right after. Then, after a friendly healer rezzed me, another orc chased me into my house where it continued to come at me even after I tried to remove it several times.

    Not very fun. Feels like a home invasion where the invader won. Currently I'm hanging out in Brit like a refugee, licking my wounds.

    Can anyone fill me in on what's happening? When can I go home?

    Wait... so the EM just creates events to match random role player stories in the forums? Looks like I'm going to have to become a roleplayer that found a massive fortune hidden in his house...

    Those orcs are a ****ing menace, and they drop **** loot. They take teleporters, stealth, teleport onto you, and hit like a dragon. Nope.

    The Allison Hayes original was much better.

    Been many a moon since I saw the original, I check it out again. The older movies do tend to have better ratings than the newer remakes, I've just been a fan of Daryl Hannah since seeing her Summer Lovers movie way back when. Lass has a magic. :)

    they also follow you through serverlines and moongates, even across facets and will lock onto you and follow you while you are stealthing and they'll reveal you while doing it...

    One teleported into my home. Methinks these orcs are trying too hard.

    Far safer to take a walk around the outside of the Luna Bank, which I just did, went to investigate those IDOC that was reported in another thread here. Was looking for new construction, saw a dirt plot. No orcs ;)
