As I was looking for bow scrolls in FM entrance,
I got a trade request from McLeod23.
I accepted the trade, and after few compliments
about my character, he started ask me for money.
Not just “meso plz”, but he asked for 450k.
Thinking “Ugh not another guy asking for free stuff =/”,
I put on 20 Ice Cream Pop and let him had it.
(There were more talking but this is the short version;
he was saying he’s poor and he wants to buy attack pot and such)
Few minutes later, he traded me again:
Instantly I thought to myself “this guy is not just regular
low’er’ level asking for free items. (Other wise he wouldn’t trade me twice).
Didn’t take what he said seriously (about giving away his stuff)
But he got the meso he wanted.
As the story goes on, somehow we were talking
and he was telling me that he’s going to spend his last day
by taking that Pineapple Chew (+Att) and do some dmg
at Ant Tunnel. He asked me if I wanted to watch.
(I was at Ludi)
I agreed and traveled from Ludi to Victoria Island.
We had some good talk and I got to know him better
After getting DC’ed on ship 3 times, I bought VIP Teleport rock
and headed straight to his map because I felt bad for him waiting =/
So there he was, a lvl 4x Theif going to enjoy his last moment in MS.
When his attack potion ran out, (told me max dmg was 888)
He traded me and really stripped naked and gave me all his equipments.
Clean Maple Claw, 3 Stars, and his armors which are bought from NPC.
Those items don’t really worth much to me.
But after this incident,
I was thinking..
If I deny his second trade and moved on,
I would miss this opportunity to get to know this dude
and (to some level) become friends.
I don’t know…
This is the story that I “bought” with 450k.
And I think there’s something behind it
that I can’t articulate at the moment.
