Ultima Online - Monster Wrangler

We had a freshly placed cabin in the very North-Eastern part of Yew woods that we had been hanging out around. There was a guild next door that we always ended up fighting with (I don't remember why).

One day they thought it would be funny to block us from our house with a load of wooden tables. Well we just had to repay the favor.

Just below their tower was a very dense forest with that always had tons of mobs spawned in it. So Belgarath would spend about 20 minutes wrangling them into a huge aggro train. Once they were in a tightly packed group, he would make his way to their tower. He would run inside it to the very back wall and wait for them to mass around the entrance, and then he would hide or recall out.

The mobs in that area were not hard to kill or anything. Although, when you've got 100 or more in the first floor of your house, they can be quite a hassle. One guy recalled to the front of the building and just ran in without even thinking or realizing what was going on. He was quickly boxed in by the monsters and killed. This happened to several of them, and become a nightly event to entertain us.

They would get so pissed off, and I don't blame them.  Eventually they started calling GMs, and we were threatened with account suspensions or bannings if we continued to wrangle up mobs.  Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
