Furnishing Your Home Through Questionable Means

Furnishing Your Home Through Questionable Means

The Hallway
     Beneath the Aegean trees near a Rhinoman village, there is a man waiting to be mugged. His wife in Stret West Bank stands outside their small dwelling, a knot tightening in her stomach. She’s waiting to see where her husband has gone, and to see if some kind soul might assist her in locating him. As it is, your apartment here on Rubi-Ka is looking a bit bare, and you have some time on your hands to help a desperate woman sick with worry for her husband’s well being.
      You approach the young alien looking woman. She has a rather blank, thoughtless look in her eyes. Could she be thinking of him lying dead in a ditch somewhere?
      “Have you seen my husband? His name is Pietro Molla,
Gianna Molla, the origin of the quest.
Pietro Molla, a jerk.
I’m afraid he might have been abducted by aliens.” You stop for a second, taken aback.
      “No, I don’t recall the name, so I don’t think I’ve met him,” you reply hesitantly. She goes on to describe him, but it still doesn’t ring a bell. You can see she’s desperately worried, and apparently the investigators she sent earlier have dropped the case without telling her anything. It’s almost as if no one cares about poor Pietro. She goes on about how bad the aliens are and how she’s seen them with her own eyes.
      You try to sooth her, “I know they are bad, but I haven’t heard of any abductions, though!” Her belief unwavering, she tells you she’s convinced some soldiers from the government are covering up the abductions by hiding all evidence of them.
      “Who are they? You don’t really think someone is trying to hide what happened to your husband?” you ask incredulously. She seems to think Omni-Tek is responsible for the cover-up and may be responsible for the disappearance of the investigators she’s sent after her husband. You offer to look for her husband for her. She’s hesitant to involve you, lest you disappear as well. You assert that you aren’t afraid of “them.”
     “Well, I’m very greatful for your offer to help me. Please be careful!Oh, and if you find him, and bring me some evidence that he’s still alive, please bring it to me, and I’ll make sure you get a little something for your trouble.”
      After a long run, you find yourself approaching the husband, and skipping the pleasantries, you simply shout hey and ask him if he is Pietro Molla.
     “That’s correct. What do you want?” he asks, eying you suspiciously. You tell him you’ve been looking all over for him. It was quite a jog to get here.
      “Oh yeah? This has, of course, nothing to do with my wife now, has it?”his suspicions seem to be growing. He tells you this is something she would try. Apparently she’s living in the denial with the fact that their marriage is over. Nothing more left to do or say.
      “No, your wife didn’t send me.” Smooth. All the suspicion in the world can’t save him now. He chuckles nervously and, reaching into his pocket, pulls out a gold ring.
      “Oh, well, what do you want? If you’re trying to mug me, I can ensure you I have no valuables. Maybe except this marriage ring. I don’t need that anymore anyway.” and he hands you the ring. Smiling, you thank him for his generosity. He goes on about a great burden being lifted from his shoulders and how great it is to be free. You have your own suspicions about this man’s true wealth, both concerning his character and his material possessions.
      However, you can’t stop to think too long upon this. The long trek back to Gianna lies ahead.
You at least have the heart to tell the woman about her husband. Indeed, she’s overwhelmed with happiness when you place the ring in her hand and tell her he is on his way back. She’s going to make dinner for him, but before she goes she gives you her reward. In fact, she’s so grateful, she gives you her husband’s This Means couch.
This Means Corner Couch
It just barely fits through the Wampa doorway, as you drag it through the portal to join the rest in your apartment. You may sell one, or two and even get a good chunk of credits in return. You know you can get at least 75,000 for one of the bars. It’s a good life, and you plan to enjoy it in a fully furnished home.
      Thus I learned how to farm up credits by selling furniture in the Sci-Fi MMO Anarchy Online. There is a tutorial for the Gianna Molla quest which you can find here: http://www.ao-universe.com/index.php?id=14&pid=25
It’s quite a bit tedious, and best done between missions.  However, with the free jetpack from the 10 Year Anniversary event, it’s a bit faster to get through. This is also a timed mission, but as you have over 8 hours to complete it, it can be finished with plenty of time to spare. If your looking to really shake things up in the apartment, you can apply the furniture to just about any surface including the ceiling.

You can also buy furniture at Uncle Bazzit’s in Meetmedere. Be careful not to over fill your apartment with stuff.

The regular apartments on RK can hold up to 30 items, after which any new item placed will disappear. The Luxury Jobe apartments can hold 100. Apparently in the old days, The Luxury Jobe held 30 and the regular apartments on Jobe and Rubi-Ka could only hold 10 items. I know very few people care about the apartments in Anarchy Online, but I have found it quite a bit fun along with adding an extra dimension of immersion to the game. And who doesn’t want a couple of bars to come home to?
