Character History:


  • Palmer was obliquely referenced in Cordir's temple, as the source of a small hole drilled in the temple wall. Though he did not worship her, she had a very friendly and joking relationship with him, usually conducted over Cant. Eventually, he was named "Anathema" for his repeated thefts from members of the following, something she scolded him often about.
  • Palmer is directly referenced in a Corri-emote: Corri flashes her innocent grin *tm Palmer*
  • Palmer was also rumored to have drilled holes in the walls of The Baths, to peep in on those bathing, however, Rath swore in a conversation with Cordir (oct 29, 2001) that Palmer was, in fact, a "saint" and would "never commit a crime."
  • Palmer was mentioned in the BlissPoll 2000, receiving votes for 'Most Elusive Mortal'and 'Most Annoying Mortal'
  • Palmer was a member of IPS.
  • Palmer was mentioned in Cirth's 'What if'... story entry.
  • Back when one could use a 'leveling eq set' and gain the effects/bonuses from the equipment worn at the time of the level, rather than the whole time exp'ing, Palmer stole the bag containing the Silver Fellowship's leveling set.
  • Palmer was mentioned in Marisa's "How To Get PK'd" primer.
  • Palmer gave Tokugawa his condolances on having to accept Cordir as an Attendant, and Palmer further offered to 'help out' if Cordir gave Toku any trouble.
  • Palmer was specifically mentioned in Kerouac's retirement note.

Player Provided Information:

Palmer was 'Steal-Fail-Die'. But, to his credit, he was utterly impossible to kill if you didn't have the ability to destroy him immediately. You would be light bags if you were around Palmer and you were not prepared.
The problem of being a thief back then was that there were only a handful of them, and usually only one or two online at a time'. So you pretty much knew Palmer was your trouble.
There's only one person who's gotten me into more trouble than Palmer. That's Corri.
He used to find people I wanted to play with... then I'd invis us both up and we'd go visit and ventriloquate their mobs.
Palmer and I traded so much EQ via steal.. it wasn't funny...
Palmer could steal ANYTHING. People would sit in safe, just avoid getting their stuff stolen by Palmer, in the same way people safe sit today to avoid being PK. You'd get an ftell saying Palmer was on and people would immediately start checking their bags.

Personal Timeline:

March 1996: Palmer is created.
May 1996: Palmer joins the Kindred Vampyric and is later Ordained by Khore.
January 13, 2000: Cordir sets Ptarchyzk and Palmer to a contest to see which is the 'cooler' thief. Neither fulfills all aspects of the quest. Craving one of the quest items - a chocolate eclair - she lays a challenge to the whole mud: The first to gain her a chocolate eclair within 2 minuets to gain a special mention on the Time Line. Within 15 seconds, Tylorn had one in his inventory, but couldn't get it to her. Palmer slid in under the wire with 3 seconds to spare, and gained her the pastry she was seeking. = ) Gratz, Palmer!
