My sweet, sweet raven... :-(

 

A terrible sadness occurred today, and I must vent my frustration and anguish with you all.

 

On the road to 99 Woodcutting, I was blessed with receiving four (4) Raven egg nest-drops. I was elated to even have received the first, as the Raven had been my most desired of all of the pets -- much to my happiness, I ended up getting four!

 

Slowly but surely (slowly on account of usually forgetting to unbank them...) I raised up two of them to adulthood, one a solid brown color, the other, solid black. However, my desired look still evaded me...

 

HOWEVER!, the Gods smiled favorably upon me, and upon hatching my third Raven egg, I was overjoyed to see that it was a black-bodied, golden-beaked Raven, the best form of this animal.

 

Again, I persisted in raising this beautiful creature to adulthood, slowly over time.

 

Again, MUCH TO MY DELIGHT, this awesome gift reached maturity TONIGHT, April 28, 2010. I even had a friend (Iiccee <3: ) hanging out with me to celebrate the exact moment it went from 99% -> 100%.

 

Fireworks and much joy ensued, and me and my new grown friend danced away to my POH, so it could play with its brother and sister.

 

My OCD kicked in, and I was quite insistent upon having all of my Ravens grouped next to each other in the Pet House interface. As I already had the max amount of pets stored for that type (2 Ravens, 1 Penguin, 3 Rune guardians) it took a bit of shuffling around (and killing off one Guardian...) to get it just right.

 

Then... TRAGEDY STRUCK.

 

I innocently dropped my newly-hatched (black with gold beak) Raven onto the ground, and to my HORROR the adult that spawned in front of me was SOLID BLACK. I was shocked and confused, as my already existing full-black raven was behind me, and this new full-black one mutated in front of me!

 

Thinking it just an error with the displays, I picked it up; however... the inventory icon remained the same: solid black. Still thinking I had messed up in which one I had actually dropped ("I'm tired... I must have withdrawn the solid black one all along, and the gold-beaked one is still stored...") I took a peek into my Pet House.

 

....a solid black Raven stored. A solid black Raven in my inventory.

 

My beautiful new friend, with his lustrous golden beak, had died, mere moments after growing up.

 

I am quite saddened by the terrible events that have occurred tonight. My heart is crying right now.

 

I have submitted a Bug Report for this incident, and while I do not assume that I will get my beautiful Raven back, I hope that this issue is fixed so no one else is as heartbroken as I.

 

I am hopeful that Raven #4 will be Gold Beak Incarnate...

 

I love you, little Raven.... I love you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TL;DR: Jagex [bleep]ed me over.

1. I remember you.

2. YES. It was DESTROYED. MUTATED. The solid black ones are still awesome looking, but I was really, really, really happy to have one with a gold beak.

I keep telling people that all these nuclear plants aren't a good idea, but no, they don't believe me. Now Serpent's awesome Raven has mutated into a horrible twisted black form. I blame them.
