The Knightly Order of Tubthumping -- We're Here To Help!

Died recently? Click on Help! I Died! Follow the instructions to contact us and help us get your stuff back.

WARNING: Do NOT post the exact location of your death, or the monster that killed you, on this page. Doing so will dramatically reduce your chances of a successful outcome, as corpse-stealing ghouls are known to monitor this page.

Announcements and Current Events

Exclusively for matters of importance to the Order as a whole

Using the Help! I Died page

It has come to my attention that several attempts at tubthumping have been jeopardized, not by posting one's location and/or cause of death on the Help! I Died entry, but by failing to post at all, opting instead to go directly to secure contact. While this discourages ghouls, it also pins one's hopes on the idea that the single (or married) Knight in question will be available in a reasonable time frame. This defeats the purpose of the Knightly Order, which operates in numbers precisely so that, ideally, there will be a timely response.
Please, if you would like our assistance, contact us all. If you feel it is necessary, it is acceptable to e-mail us before you post, but no Knight is better than another, and I, for instance, am unavailable 92% of the day. Therefore, the least one should do is to post a Help! I Died entry, as per the Hypothetical Dead Person, and either to await further contact or to initiate said contact over the other, more secure channels. Failing to do so jeopardizes your chances of assistance by not allowing all Knights know of your need.
The all self-important, Doc Mackie

Long-Term Urgency

To our general dismay, an expiration date has been applied to monsters. While I'm not aware of precisely what determines this expiration date, what exceptions apply, or anything else, it appears that corpses in a monster's inventory do disappear. Therefore, while it's seldom an issue, there is a long-term urgency to the completion of Tubthumping quests.
The all self-important, Doc Mackie

Origins

The Origins of the Order, and the mystical nature of our name, can be perused at the History Page.

Secure Communications

Secret communication is the bread and butter of the Fraternity.

Click here to communicate securely with a Member of the Order.

How It Works

Are you...

  • recently deceased, a freshly minted member of the Cod?
  • depressed that you haven't signed up for the King's excellent (and FREE) insurance policies at your home shrine?
  • really kicking yourself in the arse right now for not using the Clean Bandages you just remembered you had?
  • just beginning to realize how much really cool stuff you had, and how little you really got to try out most of it? (Like, for example, those Clean Bandages?)
  • dreading starting over, with all that onerous collecting of Clean Bandages?

Well, there's still hope. We Knights aren't just going to stand around taunting you, although we may do a fair bit of that for a while. We're Here to Help!

Should you find yourself in need of our services (you dummy), i.e., you wake up in the shrine of your alignment, dazed and weak, here's what you should do:

  1. Scream, "Oh, <insert favorite expletive here>!!!" as loudly as practical in your personal circumstances.
  2. Head for the local Donation Point. Which are where?
By the way is it at all strange that after my character does the time and space quest he begins collecting GPS of monsters everywhere?
  1. Take the offered transport to the Keep (the Knightly Order pays to maintain the system so that there is no cost to you. But we don't pay much, so don't expect it to be a quick trip.)
  2. Visit the morgue and look for your body. Claim it if it's there, and get your stuff back.
  • Click here to read the current list of toe-tags in the morgue. (The coroner does his best, but some folks wear disguises.)
  1. If it's not, then pay a visit to the Shelter for Charity Handouts, where you will have an opportunity to see what can be given to you from the items fellow adventurers have donated. Then get back to where you were when you died as quickly as you can and kill that critter good.

If your individual situation is more complicated (meaning, you've got a survey vessel sized load of stuff that you don't want to leave lying around for long, and 2 water stones and a rusty sword just won't get it done), consider applying for our more traditional service offering, below. Click on Help! I Died! to post your request for summoning and other aid. You'll find instructions on how to communicate the location of your demise securely, and a place to request the specific items and/or transportation your unique situation requires. Hopefully, some philanthropic Paladin will spot your request and make arrangements with you to get you back on your feet.

Either way, presumably, you're then on your own. After all, you did DIE, and that's ultimately your own stupid fault.

If You Find a Body

If you run across somebody's corpse, please bring it to the nearest Donation Point and donate it as soon as you can. As you can well imagine, they're likely to want it back. It will be transported immediately by the K.O.T. transport system to the morgue at the Keep (much faster than its owner, as dead bodies are easily folded into small boxes), where it will be maintained by highly trained specialists in our specially designed climate-controlled facility.

Please post a note under Who Died?, also; and indicate where the body is (usually you've got it near a trading post, or it's at the morgue) so the victim knows where to look. Thankfully, if you do not do this, the body will probably show up on the botfeed anyway once you drop it off at a Donation Point. We just happen to be sticklers for tradition.

Locations of Donation Points:

Other Chivalrous Activities

With such a thriving community of chivalrous, philanthropic Paladins, full of good karma, what other wonders could we wreak?

Of course, we all want to give regularly and generously at Donation Points. Remember the Guidelines for Donations.

In addition:

  • Sand worm hunts?
  • Polychromatic dragon slaying festivals? These are rumored to be less fun than previously thought.
  • Trading Post Martial Arts Training?
  • Boat-Making Parties?
  • Duke-Making Parties?
  • Leather-Gathering Sorties?

Ideas are welcome here, but discussion thereof should take place HERE. (Sert promises to try to remember the difference). Bear in mind that the purpose of such Knightly events is to better equip us to serve the Cod.

Roster of the Paladins

At this time, membership is completely informal, voluntary, and the only requirements are that you be at least an Earl, and be willing to take the pledge. If you are an Earl, you must commit to immediately becoming a Duke. If you are truly honorable and firmly committed to this task, we are here to help you.

Likewise, if you are not yet Desert-Worthy, you must prepare yourself for the Gauntlet. Requiring all prospective members to become desert-worthy ensures an added damage bonus as well as a certain mobility, critical for killing those hard-to-reach monsters.

Requiring Earlishness / Dukeishness as a prerequisite for membership accomplishes three things:

  • It helps to ensure the independent wealth and durability of our membership, which is important to our primary mission of providing assistance to the CoD;
  • It ensures the capability and safety of our membership during rescue missions to the remoter parts of the realm; and
  • It confers a certain snobbishness and elitism, which all members of the Order relish.


The pledge is as follows:

  • I, State your Name, pledge to watch the "Help! I died!" space below, and to be ready and willing to help fellow adventurers in need, by summoning them, rescuing them, and/or providing a useful bit of my loot to help get them back on their feet.

Inactive Knights

These knights have not recently updated their information; some are deceased or have been found in the retirement village, while others are probably out doing their own thing. If you are one of these knights, feel free to remove yourself from this list when you update your "where am I now" tag. We have merely done this to reduce confusion; your placement here was arbitrary, but is with the best of intentions.

Cold Cases

If you posted a request for help here a while ago, and it disappears before you get your stuff back, it may have been transferred to our Cold Case team. Click Here for updates.


Help! I Died!

Please follow the directions for formatting your request. Come on, people, they're not that hard. We Paladins are known for dragon and giant killing, not for reading carefully. And we all refuse to wear those silly glasses.

Corpse-thieving ghouls are known to watch this page with the express purpose of getting to your stuff first when you die. And they don't usually give it back. (Boo!) So, if you want real help, don't mention where you died or the beast that gakked you here on this page. Reserve that information for secure communications.

  • Post requests for assistance at the end of this section.
  • Don't post specific locations where piles of good stuff can be found on this page. Click here to contact one or more KOT Paladins securely instead. Do post a general location, such as "alongside the road", "inside the mountains", or "eastern part of the Great Desert". This will help us decide who should respond.
  • Try to contact a Knight that's in the general area of your demise and, if you can, be prepared with specific location information once someone answers your call. Some of the knights note where they are on the Roster of the Paladins, and their notes are sometimes even up to date! If you don't have the coordinates, obtain and use a Magic Ball repeatedly until it tells you them. (Magic Balls usually can be obtained for free at Charity Handouts.) Again, don't post the coordinates here.
  • If you need summoning and you're wearing a party hat, rip it off. People wearing hats, and registered duellists, cannot be summoned.
  • Please start your request with three equals signs, three single-quotes, four tildes, three more single quotes, and three more equals signs. Like this:
=== '''~~~~''' ===
  • This is important. We need to have all of this information easily accessible, and there can be a lot of it. If in doubt, look at how the other folks did it via the Edit function. Doc Mackie
  • If you receive help, please clear out your request to keep this page tidy, and if you were helped, list yourself under Victories of the Order. Please also list the name of the paladin who rescued you. (Mainly so I don't clear the victory out) Syagrius 18:25, 9 March 2006 (GMT)
  • ...and consider joining the Knightly Order yourself!

In Cod we trust.


Hypothetical Dead Person!

This is a sample Help! I Died! post. The title is bracketed by three === signs. I have not listed the location of my death, nor the monster that killed me, and may have contacted individual Knights concurrently with my posting here. Both helps, but make the post at the minimum. I can be reached at hypothetical AT person.cod and have signed with four tildes: Hypothetical Dead Person! 20:17, 30 May 2006 (BST)

I only add that tildes are the <shifted> ` key located in the upper left of stardard qwerty keyboards(it took me a while to find, not everyone knows what a tilde is) Spacer one 16:04, 31 May 2006 (BST)
Yes, so like this ~~~~ Syagrius 16:09, 31 May 2006 (BST)
When I'm using my wireless iPaq, I have to copy the ~ from one of the pages. It's kinda irritating.macksting 21:00, 31 May 2006 (BST)
Well, I would be very much mistaken if there isn't a signing button above the editting or creating page. That button makes --~~~~ appear. I think so, anyway ^_^ --LordAsriel 21:48, 31 May 2006 (BST)
Well son of a... --macksting 21:49, 2 June 2006 (BST)


Donkey

Hi- can I borrow a spade from someone for the afternoon? I'm in the earth city trading post. Been a bit down on my luck (damn badgers)... But after i get some tresure I can give you your spade back.

Good luck with this. I'll be headed for Asgard real soon, and I've got six other spades; consider it a down payment on replacing what you lost when we failed to adequately tubthump you. macksting 18:57, 13 October 2006 (BST)
Thank You! I'm on my way back to return the spade to you. No worries about the other time, just the nature fo the beast.
What's your treasure? macksting 19:12, 13 October 2006 (BST)
Space Rocket, Gold, Onyx Bling and a cruel Blade. Want the space rocket? - FYI out of AP about 15 squares N or Earth city.
Not as much as I want to be in Asgard, so you just enjoy the Spade. Pay it forward and all that, I probably bought it with a pirate's hat anyway. macksting 19:30, 13 October 2006 (BST)

Who Died?

Post here if you come across a corpse and hopefully we can reunite it with its owner. (Corpses contain the items of the deceased.) Also, donate the corpse at a Donation Point for transport back to the morgue at the Keep.

  • See below for corpse entries.

Morgue Contents

This feed lists all corpses currently waiting pick-up at the morgue.

http://cities.totl.net/cgi-bin/morgue

  • The morgue is filling up. One would think people would want their body (and stuff) back. :)
    • The morgue is the new Limbo!
      • Is THAT what elseware meant when he said "Limbo is now limboier"?  :) Syagrius 21:19, 15 March 2006 (GMT)
  • Damn. We're gonna need a bigger morgue. There's a lot of people in there multiple times - do we need to get the word out better, that you can get your stuff back easily by visiting it? -- Sertularian 00:06, 18 March 2006 (GMT)
Or give us the option to loot the body straight into the Keep Shop after a week or something. Syagrius 01:03, 18 March 2006 (GMT)
Longer than a week, man. Also, consider how very many items are, really, quite renewable. macksting 09:30, 18 March 2006 (GMT)
Maybe have a 'King's messanger hand each player a little note, saying "If you've died, be sure to check out the KOT Morgue near Water City. Your corpse may have found its way there." And I agree on having a longer amount of time than a week - that was just an example. Syagrius 23:32, 22 March 2006 (GMT)
I can't find the morgue, where is it?
It's in the Keep, on (I believe) the east side of it. macksting 16:57, 2 April 2006 (BST)
aghh, where is the keep then?
Roughly 20 squares west of the water city (or about 80 east of Fire); it has its own road and is easily found. Alternatively you can go to a donation point and teleport to the great hall for about 30AP. PlanetNiles 10:10, 17 April 2006 (BST)

I would like to see some kind of "morgue Talisman" Spacer one 16:12, 11 May 2006 (BST)

There's a permanent one in each elemental city (plus at least Brighthelm), at the K.O.T. donation point. Since those that need transport the most are always at the Shrine of their alignment, they're only a few steps away. Costs 30 AP. -- Sertularian 05:35, 12 May 2006 (BST)
How about Body Bag, you put the corpse inside and zoom - both the bag and the corpse are teleported to the morgue. Availabe for 1000 Gold at the Keep. Would save a ton of AP for the dedicated Knight. --Schwarz 14:46, 28 May 2006 (BST)
I suggested that ages back. Maybe now something will be done :) PlanetNiles 17:51, 28 May 2006 (BST)
A talisman for the body, not for the person - now I get it! Brilliant! Say you find a corpse in the middle of the Desert/Frozen North, or while doing Standing Stones - you don't want to screw up your schedule and have to hike all the way back just to go drop off a body, so the poor sap who lost it has to wait around to get his/her stuffs back. The Body Bag solves this problem, and cuts down the "Corpses Awaiting Delivery" section too. Admins/Developers? -- Sertularian 13:03, 29 May 2006 (BST)

Corpses Delivered to the Morgue

Victories of the Order

Granted that most of our victories are more moral than technical, it still seems right to keep a running track of those situations in which we were able to reunite a fallen warrior with his or her stuff.

  • If you are rescued by the order, please list who rescued you, so we can keep a proper tally of the victories. We don't want to claim victory when it's unwarrented. Syagrius 18:23, 9 March 2006 (GMT)

First and foremost, Doc Mackie himself, without whose death we might never have organized. You did not die in vain, Doc.

Lending

Welcome to the Knightly Order of Tubthumping Credit Union (KOoT CU).

Current Total Assets: No Clue! Please see us personally to ensure that you recieve a Magic Ball, insofar as we have them available.

Mackie Weapons galore.
Douro 30000 (also deposited as a Donation)
Jon 25000 (ditto)
Syagrius 12000 gold put in as donation, as well as a couple of emeralds, 15 magic balls, and enough weaponry to start a small army. :) Syagrius 05:17, 18 February 2006 (GMT)

Quantum sez- Would donations of Magic Balls and Magic Emeralds help the order?

That would be under the Lending category, in our Discussion bar. Although, now that you mention it...
Please don't donate too many Magic Balls at donation points. We should reserve them for use as in the cases above, where Cod members with lots o' stuff don't know where they died. Summon them to a DP, give/lend them an MB, get the coordinates and off you go on your big white horse. -- Sertularian 00:04, 17 February 2006 (GMT)

Current Available Magic Balls and Magic Emeralds: 7 MB, 5 ME

Sy 2 MB, 1 ME
Mackie No clue!
Sert Ask me!
Billz8 4 spare Magic Emeralds, 6 Magic Balls
Jenali A bunch and a bunch. Ask.
Geayzus 3 spare Magic Balls, 1 spare Magic Emerald

The discussion of Lending has been moved to the bar, since that's where all the Knights are anyway.

Just wanted to put in a word of thanks to whoever gave me that Limbo talisman! Sorry i forgot who i asked... Thank you so much, post yoru name and I'll give you kudos!- donkey

Overheard at the Bar

Jenali, 13:14, 7 Feb 2006 (GMT) -- 7 dragons to go before I can help out myself!

if you need a heal just buzz/summon me. Doc Sheyona
We'd love to have you. macksting 21:49, 8 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Here I am. Anyone wanna help with those sandwiches? =) 10 February 2006 (GMT)
Noob ;-) I remember a time, back in the day when I helped out a sorry individual who had died and lost all his stuff then lamented about it on the Trading Post page. I duly summoned him and provided him with a goodly selection of equipment. Now he goes from strength to strength and helps out others in need. Lady Caroline
Indeed! e.bstan was a "noob"!! :D well he learned a lesson and with the generous supports from Lady Caroline, he is backed with power and strength! nah... i owe you one. ;p e.bstan 15:39, 10 February 2006 (GMT)
Hmmm. Doc Mackie was rescued by moj, who was probably rescued at some point by E.bstan, who was inspired by being rescued by Lady Caroline -- I guess we now know who REALLY started this whole thing!
Bah, you young whipper-snappers (except Lady Caroline). Before there was a northland, before there were thieves, before any heard tell of Great Deserts and Oceans, clouds, space, lords, and gauntlets, when fresh stone chips still littered the ground around the Standing Stones and Dragons were the newest monster......Then it was that Baron Droll happened upon Baron dmonx and offered him Walking Stick, Map, and Fire Sword, so that he could avenge his defeat at the hands of something-or-other. Perhaps that was not even the first time aid was given in time of need. The concept is ageless, but credit goes (properly) to the founders of the Order for creating some organization around it.
Welcome, Duke Droll, to our humble drinking establishment! Have a seat by the fire, you look a little cold. Thanks for sharing the legends of the early days, from the time when the dragons hatched. We newcomers are just trying to do our part! -- Sertularian 16:47, 9 March 2006 (GMT)
Aye! Defeat at the hand of the newfangled Undead Dragon, it was. Dmonx 16:02, 9 April 2006 (BST)
I think some pinata-finding and sandwich-making is in the works, but I'll do what I can! --Jenali
