Mud Contributions:

Ptarchyzk sticks his finger in (EVERYONE!!)'s belly button and wriggles it around a bit.
(This habit was later used for inspiration for the restring of a simple ring.)

Ptarchyzk was also known for his colorful gossiped triggers in response to levels:

  • Ptarchyzk gossips (in common), 'Kaleyah, please report to Slue so we can remove that illegal level 26. We can't have you getting that big.'.
  • Ptarchyzk gossips (in common), 'Keller, please see me to pay your dues for reaching level 4.... Thieves guild rules and all.'.

Current Description:

Your gaze slides past the tall, slender figure, as unremarkable as any of the hundreds that travel through the city. Something about it, though, pulls your eyes back for a second look. But he's gone. Scanning the area, you spot him again, some distance away. Again, your gaze slides over him, as if he simply wasn't important enough or different enough to notice... that in itself makes you force yourself to look deeper.

From his height, your first thought is 'Elven'... but the breadth of his shoulders swiftly paints a truer picture. Brown hair is cropped short, but a forelock falls boyishly over his piercing blue eyes. However, the assessing, sarcastic, almost arrogant gaze that meets yours is certainly not that of a foppish or callow youth, but rather one who has survived alone for decades and has little to no patience for the foolishness, ineptitude or dogma of others. Worn leathers fit snugly over a body that is wiry but capable, accenting the smoothness of his movement as he glides towards you. His weapons are quiet at his side, but his hands don't stray far from their grip. A slight smirk creeps over his lips as he meets your eyes, and nods. Then he is gone, sliding away to hide in plain sight once more.

Upon examination, you realize that this specimen of humanity called
Ptarchyzk is in perfect health.

You don't irritate me. I just said that I hope an immortal
puts you back in your mortal place: far below the worth of any

Though, I'm amused by the pseudo-insightful responses to
my thoughts on the matter. Yay for mindless masses of mediocrity!

Not going to say anything mean...
It is my understanding that Ptar is an old player. 2x if I'm correct.
Back in those times. I can remember a many ppl being recruited
by the gods. Not merely asking the god to allow them to follow.
So. Ptar is just letting the gods know where his loyalty

I look at it this way...
I can do whatever I want. It's not hurting you so why should you care?
I knew every single FLI on this game as a mortal. Including Molo, who is the longest lasting.
I am not slighting your beliefs in any way. Tender Sensibilities? Deal with it.
Arrogant? You bet I am. Have issues with this? Talk to every level 50 out there.
I bet you'll find they are just as arrogant as I am... if not more.

Thank you to those who have defended me in notes..
Thank you to those who helped me get to this level..
Thank you to those who appreciate me enough to bid..
And thank you to those who feel they have to disparage me for my own actions.
Makes me feel like I'm worth something since what I do irritates you so much.

Ptarchyzk. Muggle extrordinaire


  • Ptarchyzk is listed on plaque27 in the room of records:
Ptarchyzk becomes The Final Challenge's first level 40 muggle. 
It is 3pm on Kelir the 14th, the month of the Testing of Fates,
in the year 2629. (December 18th 2003) 
Hum [Wa:30 Th:30] Ptarchyzk, Atheistic Muggle Sneak Extrordinaire.TMQFC.
  • Credited as being one of the factors that led to the downfall of the Arcanes, Ptarchyzk the Warrior Thief has always been an independent cuss more than willing to cause a riot. Enraged by Uriel killing him then attempting to use his own EQ to try and bribe him into following Torchbearer, Ptarchyzk began a one thief crusade. NO Arcane was safe from Ptar's INFO... and that info went right to the Pk'ers in range.
  • In his slow 3x days, Ptarchyzk is known to have broken into Cordir's temple and braided a bunch of her spiderwebs into a hammock (in which, Okk (and others) is rumored to enjoy hiding oranges.)
