Reimbs for Overrent?

LadyAce says, 'okie, who has a question? Ea! won't be here tonight.'

Cention says, 'can I get my eq back?'

Sandra says, 'sure, ask for a re-eq on auction, get a group, and then get the eq you need =P'

LadyAce says, 'No, you lost it because you broke the rent rule.'

Cention says, 'ooooorrrr.....'

Spike snickers at Sandra nastily.

Cention says, 'oh god'

LadyAce says, 'you can't get a reimb for breaking rules.'

Cention says, 'warn me for it!!'

Cention rolls around on the ground with laughter.

LadyAce says, 'Losing the stuff is punishment plenty.'

Kaige says to Cention, 'you've been around long enough to know better.'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.


Rent and Housing?

Spike says, 'can we do something about the rent thing on the housing? i mean, you buy the stuff then pay rent'

Spike says, 'why pay rent on what you already own?'

Dashiva says, 'its our working economy'

Dashiva flops about helplessly.

Spike says, 'that doesnt work :P'

Dashiva says, 'I can answer this one!'

Spike ducks to the ground.

Dashiva says, 'since I've asked it before'

Kaige says, 'to keep diskspace overhead down and to make sure that people who aren't inactive don't prevent active characters from being able to get one'

Spike nods his agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'and we do have to put a limit on the amount you can easily store, for balance purposes'

Kaige says, 'that's the technical reasons.... if you want that fictionalized, think of it not so much as rent, but mortgage and ongoing upkeep expenses'

Spike nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Dashiva snickers at Kaige nastily.

Spike nods his agreement with Kaige.

Spike says to Kaige, 'then call it utilities or something :P'

Spike says, 'i think the whole calling it rent messes with peoples heads'

Spike says, 'i think that answers my first question, but i'll let peoples go next :P'

Kaige says to Spike, 'likely, but a different command for logging out in your house would confuse people too'

Sandra says, 'yea, I have a hard enough time trying to remember if I should qsave or rent'


Destructive Crossplay

Fear says to Kaige, 'is anything GOING to be done about destructive crossplay?'

Fear says to Kaige, 'or am I wasting my breath?'

LadyAce says, 'there's a thread on discussion'

LadyAce says, 'I think that outlines where we're at.'

Kaige says to Fear, 'as far as I know it is still being discussed by the admin department. Zandy is out of town at the moment and I'm not sure when he's expected back.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'still, a month later.'

Kaige says to Fear, 'you wanted a definitive answer, yes?'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'no offense, but I'm speaking to kaige, not you.'

Kaige says, 'one that won't be reversed in 3 months?'

LadyAce says, 'Zandy's post is pretty clear about why there's no policy right now, and I haven't honestly seen anyone present a policy proposal.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'I want something, anything.'

LadyAce says, 'If you need to speak with Kaige personally, you should do that on tells. Not Q & A.'

Kaige says, 'and I believe that she was indeed correct in that Zandy's post was quite clear on where things stood'

Kaige says to Fear, 'then you'll have to be patient'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'pardon me for abusing the first time I've seen her in months'

Dashiva spanks Kaige playfully.

Kaige is usually here on thursdays

Spike throws his arms around Kaige and hugs her enthusiastically.

Fear says to Kaige, 'so you can give me nothing more than "we don't know what the hell to do about it?"'

Spike says to Fear, 'i don't think they can stop ALL crossplay'

Kaige says, 'not without getting in a deep pool of hot water with the admin department for stepping on their toes and trying to second guess them'

Spike says, 'there's no way around some crossplay'

Fear says to Kaige, 'so why don't you have the admin dept talk to me.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'or return my email, or mudmail, or something.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'I've been very patient.'

Kaige says to Fear, 'I can't speak for why no one's answered you. But you also have to remember we're all volunteers here and often things like RL will interfere'

Kaige says, 'the best I can do right now is send email to the admins and remind them we need a decision on this sooner rather than later.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'which is why I've been so patient, but it's wearing thin.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Fear.

Kaige says, 'I can understand that.'

Fear shrugs helplessly.

Fear says, 'whatever, next.'


Affects and Items

Dashiva says, 'I have a pretty simple in game question?'

Dashiva says, 'well, on items with autosneak, will anything be done to change it to sneak you after a kill? since it doesnt do it now'

Dashiva says, 'you have to remove/wear'

Kaige looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'i think it's a code thing right now'

Kaige says, 'all the affects are like that, not just sneak'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Dashiva says, 'but thats gonna change?'

Kaige says, 'no plans for it that I know of'

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Dashiva junks a small piece of paper from Dashiva marked 'question'.

LadyAce says, 'I guess we don't have a good solution?'

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Dashiva says, 'I be I be Ibe Thats all folks'

LadyAce says, 'it might be better if there was another way to reinit the spell'

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Spike says, 'has that changed with showing sneak or whatever on the status?'

Dashiva says, 'sneak shows on status, its hide that doesnt'

LadyAce says, 'removing one's clothes is not always the most elegant way to become invisible again :)'

Dashiva nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Spike snickers softly.

Waves of the ethereal water of the heavens roll in bringing Ea!

LadyAce says, 'being able to wrap the cloak around you, or something, would be neat'

Dashiva says, 'its funny to see people with trigs to remove wear'

LadyAce says, 'or polish the shoes'

LadyAce says, 'etc.'

Amairgen says to LadyAce, 'but you have to remove your clothes or people will see your clothes'

Spike says to Dashiva, 'not true, cause one of mine is wearing the assassins robes and i thought there was a sneak bug'

LadyAce says, 'more IC'ish to do socials on them than remove/wear....'

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Dashiva says, 'yea'

Dashiva says, 'ooh I like that idea to LA'

Spike says to Dashiva, 'cause it didnt show on the status :P'

Sandra says, 'we need some ruby slippers as a spelltool that casts recall. Then when objacts go in, you can click them together before it'll work'

Dashiva snickers at Sandra nastily.

LadyAce says, 'well, you notice Kaige isn't jumping up and saying it's easy to do :)'

LadyAce winks suggestively at Kaige.

Amairgen gives a quick polish to Starseed boots. It now shines brightly.

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'I dunno why I thought of that'

Sandra giggles.

Kaige was also distracted a minute.

Dashiva says, 'make the item a tool'

Dashiva says, 'with infinite charges?'

Sandra says to Dashiva, 'not =P'

Dashiva says, 'hehe'

Dashiva says, 'it would work!'

Amairgen taps Starseed boots.

Blankey sits down on the front log on the log flume.

Amairgen gives a quick polish to a ring of golden knotwork. It now shines brightly.

Dashiva sulks because Sandra has hurt his feelings.

Sandra giggles.

Dashiva says to Sandra, 'you didnt see me stomp all over your slippers idea'

LadyAce says, 'well...I'll put it in on idea'

Spike says to Dashiva, 'you should have'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Sandra says to Dashiva, 'I didn't stomp on your idea either! I just said not ;)'

Dashiva says, 'she would have elmer'd me tho'

Amairgen tugs at a swordsman's shirt, but it doesn't seem to budge.

Dashiva nods his agreement with Sandra.

Spike says to Dashiva, 'awww Sandra's a teddy bear!'

Tobias says, 'whooosh'

Kaige smiles at Tobias.

Dashiva says to Tobias, 'wrooooem'

Tobias nods his agreement with Dashiva.

Spike says to Sandra, 'arent ya :P'

LadyAce says to Blankey, 'your turn to ask'

Spike ruffles Sandra's hair playfully.

Sandra giggles.


Aengus' Keywords?

Blankey says, 'i want to know if aengus the innkeeper 'man' can be changed.'

Dashiva nods his agreement with Tobias.

Kaige looks up into the sky and ponders.

Dashiva says, 'you dont want aengus to be a guy?'

Sandra says, 'he shouldn't have 'man as a kw'

LadyAce says, 'its not in his desc'

Kaige nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'why is he also named otis?'

LadyAce is completely boggled.

Kaige says, 'I can fix that'

Dashiva laughs with amusement.

Sandra says, 'coz fionn is weird ;)'

Dashiva says, 'otis?'

Dashiva rolls around on the ground with laughter.

Tobias says, 'otis?'

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'because fionn is a goofball'

Blankey says, 'because some people get killed when fith-fath, also 'man' or 'thief''

Tobias is completely boggled.

Dashiva says, 'ahhhh hahhahahahahaha'

LadyAce says, 'yes, otis is his kw too'

Dashiva says, 'OTIS!'

LadyAce chuckles politely.

Dashiva laughs with amusement.

Tobias says, 'Sweet.'

Blankey says, 'walktez (flees) into the recep and flees down while they typwe kil man'

LadyAce chuckles politely.

Tobias says, 'I'm gonna go mess with otis.'

Sandra says, 'Name: aengus man otis innkeeper'

Blankey says, 'hes otis?'

Dashiva nods his agreement with Tobias.

Tobias giggles.


Tara Update

Kaige says, 'I hope you guys like the changes for Ireland tomorrow'

Rowane raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Fear says, 'changes?'

Dashiva says, 'fill us in'

Kaige nods her agreement with Fear.

Amairgen says to Kaige, 'whatcha gonna do?'

Dashiva tugs on Kaige's sleeve imploringly.

Rowane says, 'changes for what part?'

Dashiva says, 'dun?'

Dashiva says, 'vorpal squirrels?'

Sandra says, 'she put everything backwards, so now you'll all get lost'

Kaige says, 'well, we're starting to imp Chaykin's idea of hometown specific newbie equipment'

Blankey says, 'dun changes? vorpal squirrels?'

Rowane sinks his teeth into Sandra's flesh.

Kaige says to Dashiva, 'I hope not.'

Dashiva snickers softly.

Sandra giggles.

Blankey says, 'thats a good idea...'

Cention says, 'oh great...this should be fun'

Tobias giggles.

Kaige says, 'but lots of new clothing (not a lot new statwise, but some) and a lot of bugs fixed and it should just plain feel more irish'

Blankey grins evilly.

Blankey cheers wildly!

Tobias says, 'ooo, new mundane stuff'

Amairgen says, 'they'll all talk like McDougan'

Blankey says, 'irish is good...'

Kaige nods her agreement with Tobias.

Tobias says, 'Are you gonna mek the EQ more newbie-friendly?'

Tobias says, 'Make, even.'

Blankey says, 'well.. not THAT irish...'

Cention grins evilly at Sandra.. wonder what he's thinking...

Tobias says, 'Good lord, I can NOT type with this keyboard.'

Tobias wobbles around unsteadily - better sniff his breath!

Kaige says to Amairgen, 'nope... the mice will not talk like mcdougan'

Tobias grins evilly at Kaige.. wonder what he's thinking...

Xena says, 'i have a question, well it's more or less for LA'

Amairgen snickers softly.

Blankey says, 'darn...'

Kaige says, 'and I hope none of the mobs will either'

Kaige says, 'didn't really add any new mobs either... but treat all of them there as new ones'

Kaige grins evilly.

Kaige says, 'I'll post more details tomorrow'


Accept/Reject Limits?

Tobias says, 'Um...what's with the limit on PK accepts, I think I asked before once.'

Blankey says, 'i have 2'

Blankey cheers for himself since no one else has.

Tobias says, 'I wanted to help someone today but couldn't cause after accepting them to test fight damage, I reached my limit and wasn't warned of it.'

Kaige says, 'memory usage I believe'

Tobias says, 'So I had 32 accepts and couldn't help against someone who jumped them.'

You do a slow fade as Tobias whines at Kaige, hoping he won't get to you too.

Tobias says, 'I'll give ya five bucks, make me unlimited!'

Tobias ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'can you idea that the code should give you notice of that so we remember?'

Amairgen says to Tobias, 'accept all'

Tobias says to Amairgen, 'No, jerks ^_~'

Amairgen says to Tobias, 'reject the jerks'

Tobias says, 'Doesn't AA over-ride?'

Cention says, 'yes!!! we talkin about pkok!!'

Cention says, 'lemme in and argue!'

Dashiva says, 'institute needs to accept me'

Tobias says, 'I was RA and I could hurt people on my accept list.'

Tobias says, 'That was ludicrous'

Dashiva grins evilly at Emrysia.. wonder what he's thinking...

Tobias says, 'made Dashi and me really dangerous in AT ^_~'

Dashiva nods solemnly.

Dashiva nudges LadyAce.

Kaige thanks Tobias heartily.

Tobias says to Kaige, 'no watching what I do!'

Tobias peers around the room intently.

Tobias cowers in fear!

Dashiva says to Tobias, 'what was I gonna ask again'

Amairgen says, 'so does accept all nullify rejects?'

Tobias says to Dashiva, 'No clue.'

Kaige says to Tobias, 'it gets broadcast on a channel as well as to the log'

Tobias says to Kaige, 'Ooo. Why? ^^;'

Dashiva says, 'wait nevermind'

Dashiva says, 'dont call on me'

Dashiva cringes in terror.

Kaige says to Tobias, 'so we can comment, ask questions or fix things as we see them'

Tobias nods his agreement with Dashiva.

Tobias says to Kaige, 'Ah. In case I archive before ya understand me ^_~'


Recent Crashes?

Dashiva says, 'are we still in debugger mode?'

LadyAce says, 'nope'

Kaige says, 'not actively, no'

Dashiva says, 'did you find the crash bug?'

LadyAce shakes her head.

Kaige should probably take that out of the motd.

Tobias nods his agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'but we found some nifty other bugs'


Next Area ETA?

Dashiva says, 'can I ask when the next area ETA will be without being shot?'

LadyAce says, 'Hades is in testing.'

LadyAce says, 'it's the only area in testing.'

Dashiva nods his agreement with LadyAce.


LT Articles?

Tarquin says, 'what kinda subjects could a person write about for LT hehe'

LadyAce says, 'well, they'd need to have some relationship to Legend'

Tarquin nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'you can write about your rp and yourself'

Kaige says to Tarquin, 'if you're unsure about what you want to write about, you can always ask someone about it first'

LadyAce says to Tarquin, 'you could also write how-to articles, articles about other people's rp, that kinda thing'

Tarquin says to Kaige, 'like someone whos wrote for it before?'

Tarquin nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige nods her agreement with Tarquin.

Kaige says to Tarquin, 'or the imms, especially LA or me'

Tarquin says, 'i was lookin for summin other then about people...'

Kaige nods solemnly.


Preview House Plans?

Emrysia says, 'is there any plans for a way to be able to see what kinds of rooms can be built adjacent to the one you are previewing when building a house?'

Dashiva says, 'ah like two rooms over?'

LadyAce says, 'yes, we'd like to be able to do that'

LadyAce says, 'it's on the list'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Ea! says, 'It's on our list, but we don't have a time for it.'

Emrysia says, 'or some way of telling what kinds of housing are available in one area?'

Kaige says, 'would be nice'

Emrysia nods solemnly.

Tobias says, 'you could just make it so you can view the total branching tree of rooms for a house.'

Ea! says, 'Mainly, it's a problem with figuring out how to do the input -- what players should type to see it, I think.'

Tobias says, 'And then you choose a number to view what its like.'

Tobias says, 'So you do floorplans'

Amairgen says, 'build query rooms'

Tobias says, 'and it shows all the starting rooms in this area'

Dashiva says to Tobias, 'dont mention trees or branchs of any kinds'

Ea! says, 'As for telling what kinds of houses are in an area, that's something that we leave to the builders...'

Dashiva says to Tobias, 'we want them concentrating on one type of tree only'

Tobias says, 'And then you can type a number as an argument to see what its going to lead to.'

Emrysia says, 'well, even some type of help file would be helpful.. like in you can build '

Emrysia nods solemnly.

Ea! says to Emrysia, 'We'd rather have that type of information given out in-game -- by interacting with mobs and so forth.'

Tarquin says, 'i kinda like havin to search around for a good spot'

Emrysia nods her agreement with Ea!.

Emrysia says, 'well, I don't really mind searching out a good spot :) but with our clan we were looking for very specific things, it would be nice to know if they were available somewhere'

Emrysia giggles.


Ammo Manipulation?

Carter says, 'Can we be able ter take one bulet from a pouch, one musketball, one arrow?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we have that planned.'

Dashiva peers intently at a quiver of arrows.

LadyAce says, 'you could probably fake it with emotes'

Carter says, 'And also, why can't ordinary .45 ammo be used with this?'

Carter pokes a nickel-plated .45 - It's dead, Carter.

Tobias says, 'cause you'd be shovin bullets in the barrel?'

Tobias shrugs philosophically.

Dashiva says, 'its not the same gun'

Dashiva says, 'ones a revolver'

Dashiva says, 'the other is a clip'

Ea! says, 'We want to be able to have quivers that can only hold arrows and things like that...'

Carter says, 'but if yer kept an empty clip...'

Tobias says to Carter, 'You'd be complicating things.'

Tobias giggles.

Carter says, 'is this arrows made from skill-tree wood?'

Dashiva says to Carter, 'heh low'

Dashiva snickers softly.

Carter grins sheepishly.

Sandra says, 'was afk. the short answer to the 45 is this: I don't want general ammo working with it. If I did, I'd have made it that way =P'

Dashiva says to Amairgen, 'I cant believe you play there!'

Chaykin flops about helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'I like the clip vs revolver answer much better'

LadyAce claps for Dashiva approvingly.

Tobias giggles.

Carter says, 'but yer can only get the ammo 3 hours a day!'

Dashiva beams delightedly.

Sandra shakes her head in disagreement with Carter.


Mend/Repair and Materials?

Chaykin says, 'my question is, why isn't there more consistency between the names of items, and the materials they are made of? For example...'

Chaykin says, 'a silver bracelet and a twisted silver ring are not made of the same material, i.e. you can't use one to repair the other'

Dashiva nods his agreement with Chaykin.

Chaykin says, 'and there are things like "velvet duffel bag" that are not made of velvet'

Chaykin says, 'etc etc'

Ea! says, 'Items aren't made of material unless they are armor...'

Dashiva says, 'oh'

LadyAce says, 'we only have a limited number of material types'

Sandra nods her agreement with Ea!.

Ea! says, 'Which is a problem, but requires a lot of work by the builders to fix.'

Chaykin says, 'but silver is a material type, isn't it?'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'best thing you can do is bug them when you see them. so we can look at them on an individual basis too... '

Sandra says to Chaykin, 'nope'

Chaykin is completely boggled.

LadyAce says, 'no. we have metal and precious metal, and that's it'

Dashiva says, 'I couldnt repair my silver bracelet with a twisted silver ring'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'also the builder will usually use the predominant material type so if somethign is made of two... '

Sandra says, 'we have a very general list of material types'

Kaige says, 'sometimes it's a toss up'

Amairgen says, 'Cian's bracelets can only be repaired with another Cian's bracelet.'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Amairgen.

Dashiva says, 'also his gloves?'

Sandra shakes her head in disagreement with Amairgen.

Cention says, 'I think I've repaired with other things'

Chaykin says, 'what I am saying is that a lot of times, an item's name seems to imply a specific material, and then that item isn't made of that material'

Amairgen says, 'I've tried every piece of gold out there.'

Dashiva says, 'gold coin'

Cention says, 'try the fomori scouts neck thing?'

Sandra says, 'gold isn't a material type'

Tobias says to Amairgen, 'even a coin?'

Chaykin says, 'or, not made of the same material that other items with that same material in that desc are'

Cention says, 'try the fomori scouts neck thing?'

Cention says, 'I believe that works'

Amairgen says, 'Perhaps Gold should be a material type.'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'and with 4200 objects out there.. it's gonna be easier for you to point out the odd ones to us '

Dashiva says, 'saxons carry leather thats pretty usable too'

Chaykin says, 'I had a velvet bag that turned out to be made of fur'

Chaykin giggles.

Sandra says, 'there's alot of materials that I'd like, but right now, we haven't got alot'

Chaykin nods solemnly.

Cention no longer looks quite as distracted.

Amairgen says, 'are material types hard-coded? that seems to be a silly method.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Amairgen.

Cention says, 'I'll be back to complain later....off to get ice-cream'

Chaykin says, 'okay well I just thought I would point it out, since many items seem to be misleading as to what they are made of'

Cention waves happily.

Sandra says, 'so the best thing to do, when it comes to repairable items, is get an item that you think might match it, and then get another metal item that you think might work instead'

Tarquin drinks from a Coke.

Cention tips his hat gallantly.

Cention waves happily.

Kaige says, 'works better that way when you base things like what kind ofweapon does more damage to it that way'

Amairgen says, 'hmmm'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'bug the weird ones when you find 'em'

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'okie'

Kaige smiles at Chaykin.

Chaykin says, 'bleh, I really need to start keeping a list. I always think of stuff to ask during the week, then forget'

LadyAce says, 'another thing might be that the item is made of 'magic''

Chaykin says, 'that's a material?'

Dashiva says, 'tform?'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Dashiva.

Chaykin says, 'well, the items I have noticed weren't tform, I am pretty sure I checked'

Chaykin shrugs helplessly.


New Moods, Socials & Pretitles?

Chaykin says, 'okie this question is gonna seem a little selfish in a way, but how long does it take to add things like new moods?'

Dashiva sent in a huge load of pretitle ideas too.

LadyAce says, 'well, if you have all the messages written out, like what, 15 or 20 min?'

Carter says, 'I reckon I need a freiendly mood.'

LadyAce says, 'the time is in the deciding on the messages and deciding to do it'

Carter says, 'I dunt have any suitable moods.'

Chaykin says, 'I ask because I've idead a few that seemed good, and I dunno if they were rejected or whatnot but they seemed really perfect and widely usable, and they never went in'

Dashiva says, 'we can think up moods?'

Carter says, 'what all messages are needed?'

Amairgen looks cheerful.

Chaykin says, 'like, I'll have a char who doesn't fit any of the existing ones. So I can't really use a mood until there is one put in'

LadyAce says, 'usually when someone feels like updating moods, they go through the whole list and add a bunch at once'

Chaykin nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'same with a lot of other changes -- it's not that they take a long time, it's that they take sitting down and going through things'

Carter says, 'What should yer put in your mood proposal?'

Chaykin says, 'and that's just at odd intervals?'

Dashiva says, 'should we mudmail or idea them?'

LadyAce says, 'we are shortest on coder time ...'

Kaige says, 'idea works, I like ones with detailed messages so I know exactly what the person meant by....'

LadyAce says, 'they are spending all their time on trying to find the source of the crashes'

Kaige says, 'oh... like... jazzy...'

Dashiva says, 'I think my cousin wrote jazzy'

Tobias nods his agreement with Kaige.

Tobias says, 'jazzy is scary'

Chaykin says, 'I thought my idea for "dry" was a good one'

Kaige says, 'so if you give examples of what it should be... (check the web pages for moods to see what all we need)'

Kaige nods her agreement with Chaykin.

Dashiva says, 'I dont like the insane one'

Dashiva says, 'no one froths!'

Kaige says, 'I like that too, just haven't had the time'

Dashiva says, 'ill fix that'

Dashiva nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

Chaykin says, 'some of the existing moods have pretty weird messages'

Chaykin says, 'some of them have mismatching ones, too'

Chaykin says, 'like, one of the say messages is something pretty different from what the mood's name is'

LadyAce says, 'well, complain about them :)'

Kaige says, 'also, when I'm looking at new moods, I try to pick ones that are widely usable as they do eat memory and a lot of what we do have already get used very little'

Chaykin says, 'can't think of one off the top of my head'

Chaykin nods solemnly.

Dashiva snickers softly.

Kaige says, 'same goes for socials.'

Dashiva says, 'eye poke was a great idea and you know it'

Sandra giggles at Dashiva.

LadyAce says, 'maybe we need 'social interaction month' or something :P'

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'maybe you can track which ones get used and ditch unused ones, like with pretitles'

Dashiva laughs with amusement.

Kaige says, 'socials catch my eye better if they'll have uses for mobs in quests later on too'

Kaige nods her agreement with Chaykin.

LadyAce says, 'have parties and get the coders to update socials and moods in a specific interval'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'just need to get it tracking across crashes'

LadyAce says, 'that way we're not always nickel and diming them'

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'ah...hehe that'd be a problem'

LadyAce says, 'pretitles is easy, I can just grep :)'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'especially lately =)'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Kaige.

Chaykin nods his agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'of course everyone sent me mudmail saying I should keep them all'

Chaykin says, 'yeah but are those people gonna use the really unpopular ones themselves?'

Chaykin says, 'Swineherd'

Chaykin giggles.

LadyAce says, 'they always say they're going to :)'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'naturally'

Dashiva says, 'I sent in like 60'

LadyAce says, 'plus, no one wants the same pretitle as anyone else.'

Chaykin says, 'they can use some of the new, better ones'

Chaykin shrugs helplessly.

Tobias snickers softly.

Dashiva says, 'mine we're even fantasy based'

Dashiva says, 'none of this czar stuff'

Dashiva rolls his eyes heavenward.

Kaige notes there's a social for that and there's always the universal ones: emote and emoteto

LadyAce tickles Dashiva.

Dashiva grins evilly.

Amairgen says, 'Grand Poo-bah'

LadyAce says, 'I was anticipating Russia coming in sooner with that czar thing :P'

Dashiva snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'and trying to be less us-centric'

Chaykin giggles.

LadyAce says, 'not that that earns me any currency with you :)'

Chaykin says, 'Legend is very West-centric'

Dashiva says, 'if you guys imp a idea thats given by a mort do you tell them?'

LadyAce says, 'we try'

Kaige says, 'we're never going to tell Chaykin we're imping his newbie costume idea.'

An aura of heavenly light appears above Kaige's head.
