I have just lost my map for the cargo hold because I stumbled onto guard dogs 3 time...sigh Too bad I didn't side with the Tigers. I guess their influence extends to the ship's cargo hold. Are the Steepers asleep at the wheel?? Can't they find something to neutralize these dogs!! Darn it wait till I get back to Shangri La you useless Steepers grrrr.

Why do people who joined with the Steepers when they get trouble with traps? I have seen few complains from people who joined with the Tigers complain when they get pirated.

If you read the post where the Pirate Rules was changed, it was not due to people who joined with the Tigers that complained. It was so that people who had not joined with nither the Tigers nor the Steepers (i.e. newbies) would not have that hard time getting pirated.

When you get so much experience that you are able to join with the Tigers, the money it takes, or the cases it takes to travel from one city to another is not so important anymore. (At least for some of us.) Almost all that choose to join with either the Tigers or the Steepers knew that there were traps to detect in Cairo, and that there were pirates to be caught by when travelling. They also knew that you could get a smugglers map to Cairo, in order to be able to go there at all...

I was pirated twice just recently. But did I complain about that? No, I knew which side I had joined, and that it had consequences.

Long live the Prince!

When it comes to double agents, the easiest way to do so are to subscribe another character... ;-)

I have said it before and I'll say it again, I have gone with the Tea Steepers and I don't regret it one bit, yes it makes the pyramids more challenging but I actually like the challenge. There are some here that complain the game has become too simple and they need more of a challenge. Well you want a challenge, try navigating the pyramids without Trap Detection. I have successfully navigated the pyramids enoug times to get a pair of shoes and a place gate key, not to mention the number of secret plans to deliver to the fction of my choice.

It's nobodies place to tell another agent why they should have gone one way or another, if the advice is asked for thats a different story. Being a VHing agent I would get HN all over again if I had the choice and I like the fact that we can't have both, makes the game more interesting.

when I joined the steepers, it was before Cairo and the pyramids, so no, didnt know about the traps as they were yet to be introduced to the game...knew about the pirates though, as those had been around quite a while.

I don’t like losing cases to the pirates, and I enjoy the mystery of the catacombs and cargo hold, I think not knowing adds to the game… so I’m very happy with my Steeper chums.

Anyway, VS, your need to create this concept that people are “nobody” so that you can feel like a “somebody” is deeply saddening. I feel very sorry for you and just hope that you will find true belief in yourself one day, but until then, keep smiling!

Well, I joined the Steepers and I am glad for it. If there are too many losses in the pyramids, oh well! At least I tried my best. So, if I get too discouraged with the traps then try try again. Move on. If there is too much discoutagement then I'll play the AVHs, I love them. Thats the trouble with it all...everything thing has to be right now but the thing is...its the challenge that builds character and patience...just play the game and enjoy...its not always the win...its the play. So should things change...NO. Its ok to complain, I do it all the time ....but change...NO....Leave the challenge there.

I just discovered that my "MapWalker" was also able to traverse the Cargo Hold...
- and what I learned are that when the pyramids seem to be a maze with outer dimension 13x13 squares, the Cargo Hold seem to be a maze with 15x15 squares. That will probably implicate that the Cargo Hold is slightly more difficult to work through than the Cairo pyramids..

Long live the Prince! ;-)
