Gades says, 'Is everything about world war 2 Somme area complete?'

'Or wwi whatever,' Gades says.

'I think he's done with it, yeah,' LadyAce says.

Gades nods solemnly.

'Have some comments on it?' LadyAce says.

Gades says, 'Seems to be some stuff to figure out there that i have yet to figure out.'

Gades says, 'Seemed like there could be a quest or two in there that were possibly undiscovered.'

'Or infrequently discovered at least,' LadyAce says to Gades.

'In reference to my own discoveries only m'lady,' Gades says.


Hitroll & Damroll Eq

Arlecchino says, 'About the post of typhoid-mary post on discussion board on the thorny question of dam hitroll eq...seemed to me pretty a good analysis of what's going on..and stance on it?'

Arlecchino says, 'Er any stance on it?'

'I haven't read the post but when I do, I'll post it....' LadyAce says.

Arlecchino nods solemnly.


Code Changes

LadyAce says, 'Any comments on the code change posted, in particularly the changes to meditate?'

'Ok i have 2 questions after redaing the 26,' Arlecchino says.

'First the change on the bow..will affect only new eq?' Arlecchino says.

LadyAce says, 'Because it's to the code, not the object, it will affect everything and everyone.'

'It's a change to the way two-handed items work -- it effects all bows, halberds, etc,' Ea! says. 'Regardless of the item.'

'Ok so who's got old bows is advantaged,' Arlecchino says.

'Change odl bows so,' Arlecchino says.

'Old bows?' Sandra says.

'Which old bows?' LadyAce says.

Arlecchino says, 'Old ody bow.'

'One handed one,' Arlecchino says.

'It changes how all two handed weapons work.. old, new, not even thought of ones,' Kaige says.

'Didn't we change pfiles on those?' LadyAce says to Sandra.

Sandra shakes her head.

'If you doing this change you should change those bows,' Arlecchino says.

'And not just weapons, either,' Ea! says to Kaige. 'And two-handed held/wielded/shield item.'

Sandra thinks, 'The first version of Odysseus' bow didn't have the twohanded flag on it. I think there's about 4 out there'

Kaige says to Ea!, 'Cool.'

'There are next to none of those out there, we don't really anticipate a problem,' LadyAce says to Arlecchino.

'Uhm all best pkiller use them,' Arlecchino says.

'I found a way to work around it but with this change now no chances,' Arlecchino says.

Arlecchino says, 'It means a neat advantage of 5 stats for those pkillers.'

'As far as I know, there are only about 4 or so onehanded bows left in the game,' LadyAce says to Arlecchino.

Arlecchino says, 'Used by the 4 more active pkillers.'

Arlecchino giggles.

'3 of them,' Arlecchino says.

LadyAce says, 'You used to be able to get around a 2-handed item using stats, now you can't.'

LadyAce says, 'So it's possible that items you think are oldstyle aren't.'

Arlecchino says, 'I know they are :).'

Kaige thinks, 'that's just the vnum search... I doubt all those are one handed... was going to check that next.'

Gades says, 'If used witha gaebolg and a hold item they are old i think.'

LadyAce says, 'Kaige is counting them to see what kinda scale we are looking at for sure.'

'And cannot be used with two-handed bow and held object,' Arlecchino says.

Arlecchino says, 'Katara can be used with new bows.'

Arlecchino says, 'My sniper does.'

Arlecchino says, 'And i think the change has been done because prolly somebody snitched out :).'

LadyAce says, 'Maybe we can come back to this in a bit, if Kaige can make the numbers behave.'

'We count 7 bows,' LadyAce says. 'I'm not too worried about 'em, but we can see how it goes.'

'I'm not worried about it..is just that my sniper will have to give out 5 stats and people that i usually fight won't :),' Arlecchino says.

LadyAce says, 'Well, if you've got bad enough luck to fight these few people, maybe so....'

'Not really have to,' Sandra says. 'You can change eq around some.'

LadyAce says, 'It's a nice boost for guns tho.'

Arlecchino says, 'I jave to lose 2stats minimum. And prolly accuracy. But whatever..i'll live with it..just doesn't seems fair :).'

'I like the meditate requirement,' Arlecchino says.

LadyAce says, 'Good!'

'Especially now without drums,' Arlecchino says, 'And i think that changes overall are good seems fair also the one on tw-handed items..i just wish that all people would have to submit to those.'

Arlecchino says, 'And as i said those few bows makes a difference for a pkiller. Especially half-mages.'

Sandra says, 'Well, I think less of one since you can chose who you pk.'

'Well thank you..bad news for me but in the name of balance everything is right,' Arlecchino says.

'I've heard rumors about the katar being changed, any idea on what its going to be changed to?' Syphus says.

'Katar's not being changed, but all bows are,' LadyAce says.

You poke the welcome board - It's dead, LadyAce.

'It was changed a couple of weeks ago.-- slightly,' Kaige says. 'Along with some other stuff in the area.'


Making Bash Cost Mana

'Ooh, hey... what was that I heard about making bashes cost mana?' Sasha says.

'Was that just a joke?' Sasha says.

'That'd be amusing,' Huginn says.

'Yea, that was me teasing people on chat the other night,' Sandra says.

Sasha says, 'I came into it late... just had to check.'

'Would make sense,' Darla says slyly. 'Backstabs too. Anything that requires luck.'

Sandra says, 'I forget what started it. I just remember saying that we should make bash cost mana and that'd drive everyone nuts ;).'

LadyAce says to Sandra, 'Troublemaker!'

'See, I gotta entertain myself!' Sandra says to you.

'Man, people would be so pissed,' Sasha says.

'It'd be so funny tho,' Sandra says. 'Lets do that for april fools next year ;).'


Quick Draw

'Is there anyway we can fire a gun from inventory *have quickdraw* while holding a bow,' Vachel says. 'The shoot command goes to the bow!'

Sandra says, 'Um, shoot gun I think?'

'Will try,' Vachel says.

'I don't use both at the same time, so I'm not really sure,' Sandra says.

'Yeah, help shoot says shoot or shoot Vachel is enlightened and has a warm glow.

Sandra is a bow person.


Strength Req on Deadeye

Arlecchino says, 'Any thought about lowering the str req on deadeye with new changes?'

Sandra says, 'I don't think it's difficult to get the required strength for a bow person, really.'

Arlecchino says, 'Yah guess not.'

Kaige says, 'Especially with the strength required to pull a bow in real life.'


Make Bandage

'What I don't understand is why I can't learn make bandage,' Darla says slyly. 'How hard can it be to tear cloth into strips?'

Ea! says to Darla, 'A good bandage is more than just a strip of cloth...'

Kaige says, 'It's also keeping it sterile as well.'

Darla tries rolling a bandage, but it tangles into a knot and begins to ravel.

'You callin' me germy?' Darla says slyly to Kaige.



Darla says slyly, 'I like the tables in malta, though I can't find matching chairs, and also the plants in alaska.'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'Kae & Cheyla did a good job with variety in their areas.'
