Soliciting LoP Apps

McDougan says, 'Without shtirring up any hornetsh neshtsh, can Bronwyn be a LoP?'

McDougan says, 'I undershtand she did apply'

Tobias says, 'The person who had the hedgehog pet?'

Kaige says, 'she hasn't applied, so I'd say, no off the top of my head.'

McDougan says, 'back in the HOL daysh'

Tobias nods solemnly.

Fear says, 'she'd be a damn fine applicant, imo'

Kaige looks up into the sky and ponders.

McDougan says to Tobias, 'aye, the pookah'

Tobias nods his agreement with McDougan.

Coren says, 'heh'

Kaige says, 'I don't think there was any replica started, and those were the ones that were grandfathered.'

Coren says, 'she was funny'

Tobias says, 'When did she leave?'

Coren says, 'heh'

LadyAce says, 'she'd need to apply and go through the usual process'

McDougan says to Kaige, 'I'm tauld she did apply jusht before it shut down'

Coren says to Tobias, 'when hell left'

Kaige says to Tobias, 'bout the same time as flagg'

Tobias says, 'Ah.'

Coren says to Tobias, 'cough'

Fear says, 'she was flagg's gf and all :p'

McDougan says, 'shoomun mentioned her'

McDougan shrugs helplessly.

Chaykin says, 'I don't see why she shouldn't have to go through a vote and everything like anyone else'

McDougan says, 'weel, aye, but why wuid she need a new application?'

LadyAce says, 'We don't have her application, far as I know'

McDougan says, 'Micht be wairth ashking her tae reapply, if ye can shtill contacht her'

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'I don't recall a replica for her in the last copy of the hol, so nope, we don't have one on record.'

McDougan nods solemnly.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

McDougan says, 'I have another queshtion later'

Herra says, 'well, as I understand, HOL was never voted on, until Sandra started as HB'

Kaige says, 'well at one time Parri and Flagg were supposed to be voting on people.'

LadyAce says, 'actually HOL was never voted on'

Herra says, 'to get into HOL you had to apply.'

Herra says, 'thats what I said LA'

Herra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'well, ok, post-Parri, no voting'

Chaykin says, 'if Flagg liked ya, you were in ;)'

Kaige says, 'doesn't necessarily make ya very legendary tho'

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

LadyAce says, 'Oh, I wouldn't say that. But let's leave the past where it is, ok?'

McDougan says, 'I oucht to beg Sharri to apply'

Herra says to Chaykin, 'except bronwyn because Sandra did not want her in'

Coren says to Herra, 'oi'

Coren says to Herra, 'shh'

Chaykin says to Herra, 'and how would you know that?'

LadyAce says, 'Herra, far as I know, we didn't get an app for Bronwyn.'

Rosaline says to McDougan, 'sharri?'

McDougan says, 'ye remember, the treehugging druidesh?'

Kaige says to Herra, 'I don't recall seeing a replica for Bronwyn started, so she wouldn't have been grandfathered and would have to apply through the regular channels now'

McDougan says, 'why am I shuddenly being told not tae bring theshe people up?'

McDougan whimpers softly.

Coren says to McDougan, 'salt, wounds, that sort of thing'

McDougan says, 'not by immortalsh'

Fear liked bronwyn ALOT, regardless of what Flagg did.

Chaykin says, 'okay, then she can send in an application, and have it reviewed and voted on'

Herra says to Chaykin, 'she wont.'

Chaykin shrugs helplessly.

Herra says to Chaykin, 'and you know it.'

Chaykin says to Herra, 'then why should the imms seek her out to ask for one?'

LadyAce says, 'She is certainly welcome to apply.'

Herra says to Chaykin, 'the point is, she was an excellent Rp'er'

McDougan says, 'onyway, would ye conshider ashking her, if ye can shtill contacht her'

McDougan says, 'the hedgehof she kept in her hair would make a REEELy guid shtring'

Chaykin says to Herra, 'then she'd prolly get in if she applies, but she has to apply. if she doesn't, what are they supposed to do?'

McDougan says, 'other memorable people from the pasht uinclude wyrd, Flea, flint, shilenshio'

McDougan sighs loudly.

Tobias says, 'Flea came in a while ago.'

McDougan says, 'thoo I'd ratheer have the people back'

McDougan says to Tobias, 'aye?'

Tobias nods his agreement with McDougan.

Chaykin says, 'then let them apply too if they want'

Rosaline says to LadyAce, 'Can we Make Tobias a Mandatory LoP?'

Tobias goes EEK! at Rosaline in distress - isn't Rosaline an awful person for teasing?

Coren nods his agreement with Chaykin.

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

LadyAce says, 'no, people have to apply'

Coren says, 'seeking them out isnt right'

Chaykin says, 'why do people suddenly want to circumvent the application process? it's totally reasonable :P'

LadyAce says, 'at any rate, there's a lot posted on this in other spots'


Report to Individuals?

Chaykin says, 'okie these are a few wild ideas I've had, so bear with me please :)'

Chaykin says, 'one: sometimes I need healing but I don't necessarily want everyone in the room to know how many hps I have. Would it be possible to make the report command directable?'

Chaykin says, 'depending on whether or not the rest of the room sees a message, it could really cut down on group spam too'

Ea! looks up into the sky and ponders.

Coren says, 'group reports'

Coren says, 'good idea'

Chaykin says, 'like I could "report tobias"'

Chaykin says, 'and only he'd see it'

Ea! says, 'Technically, it would be possible. I'm not sure what I think about the idea -- it rubs me as wrong, but I'm not sure why. I'll have to think about it. Idea it?'


Throw Skill?

Chaykin says, 'sure. second thing'

Chaykin says, 'throw seems to be a really underutilized skill, because without high perc it's SO hard to hit. It's especially annoying for creates, since they have so many spells to create vials, but it's really hard for a good create mage to have high perc'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Chaykin.

JamaciaMan says, 'yeah I think that sucks ass'

Fear says to Chaykin, 'umm'

Ea! says, 'Yeah.... I'm not a big fan of the formulas involved in throw, either.'

Chaykin says, 'so, what about making it so that the throw command is available to everyone, and the throw skill gives you a better chance to hit?'

Fear says to Chaykin, 'my dex create has 40 perc, and rarely misses.'

JamaciaMan says, 'or more dex based?'

LadyAce says, 'if everyone can shoot a bow, presumably they can all throw :P'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Chaykin nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Chaykin says, 'right'

Ea! says, 'I'd rather make it so that it's formula is different and keep it as a skill...'

Chaykin says, 'how's it sound?'

Chaykin nods solemnly.

Quimby says, 'thing with throw is no matter how high your perc is most mobs manage to catch the items you throw anyhow'

Ea! says, 'but maybe we could make it so that you need the skill to throw it out of the room or something like that.'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Ea!.

Quimby says, 'i like that idea too, anyone can throw something'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Quimby.

Chaykin says, 'yeah throwing doesn't really require teaching'

Coren says, 'multiple affects with vials would work like a bow'

Coren says, 'since you dont have to dip it to throw it out of a room'

Quimby says, 'a baby is able to throw his rattle at a young age noone teaches it'

JamaciaMan says, 'that's why kids do it al the time, they're proud of something they taught themselves =P'

Kaige says, 'no.. the parents do.. quite well.. and I think the baby's training the parents more'

Kaige winks suggestively at Quimby.

Tobias laughs with amusement.

Tobias says, 'Fetch!'

Chaykin giggles.

JamaciaMan snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'maybe if you throw without the skill and miss, the message can be the world laughing about how you throw like a girl :P'

Ea! says, 'Actually, teaching yourself to throw at moving targets, such as one that's in combat, takes a bit of skill...'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'oooh'

JamaciaMan laughs at LadyAce.

Coren says, 'i'd like to see throwing daggers that did some damage'

JamaciaMan says, 'but people don't usually use throw in mid-combat'

Ea! says, 'Oh, and throwing daggers is really quite hard, too.'

JamaciaMan looks up into the sky and ponders.

Ea! says to JamaciaMan, 'Throwing at anyone who doesn't want to be hit with the thing your throwing can be a pain.'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Ea!.

Tobias says to Ea!, 'Just throwing at a block of wood is hard ^^;'

LadyAce says to Coren, 'throwing daggers have the problem that we tie damage to weight'

LadyAce says to Coren, 'and they only hit once. so they have to weigh like 30 kg to be worth throwing, and, well...'

Coren nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Tobias says, 'then have throwing lead bricks'

Coren throws a scrap of sheet metal at you!

Tobias nods his agreement with Coren.

JamaciaMan throws a pick-axe at you!

LadyAce says, 'If there was a crit-hit option, the idea being the placement of the dagger, and it checked to see what material your armor was made of on that slot....'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

McDougan says, 'why not jusht have throwable itemsh with a wither or other damage shpell effect?'

LadyAce says, 'there's possibilities in throwing daggers, I think they'd be cool'

Coren nods solemnly.

JamaciaMan says, 'ooohhh, being able to dip daggers'

Quimby says, 'how about a boomerang type weaon so we dont have to carry 50 billion eggs with us on runs when we dont have shooters :P'

Coren nods his agreement with Quimby.

JamaciaMan says to Quimby, 'you'd need the juggle skill to catch it though =P'


Sustained Breath & Water Spells?

Chaykin says, 'last idea: there is a protection from fire spell to work against immolate and whatnot. How feasible would it be to make sustained breath give some protection against water damage spells?'

LadyAce says, 'hm, that's interesting'

Ea! says, 'I think prot. from fire is on the list to be revamped.'

Chaykin says, 'revamped how?'

Quimby says, 'id like to see protection protect you from fire work first'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Quimby.

Chaykin says, 'the sustained breath thing...'

Ea! says, 'I'm not sure on sust. breath -- I'd rather create some sort of new spell to protect against water spells...'

LadyAce says, 'water spells aren't all *that* used, either'

Chaykin says to Ea!, 'well, that'd work too, I just thought the sustained breath option would mean the least work to implement'

Ea! says, 'Idea it, though.'

LadyAce says, 'so I can think of a lot of more-used stuff that could use a spiff-up first, yanno?'

McDougan says, 'Why not make protechtion from fire protecht againsht burning-tyepe deethtrapsh?'

JamaciaMan says, 'what words are you going to use? vid pur udan is already taken =P'

Chaykin says, 'and it would make it available to non-mages as well'


Storage Strings Repairable?

Tobias says, 'Are storage strings repairable?'

JamaciaMan rolls around on the ground with laughter.

Tobias says, 'And if not, why not?'

LadyAce says, 'cuz they're not made of anything'

JamaciaMan says, 'what are you going to repair it with?'

Tobias says, 'can we make 'em tform, then?'

Lorenzo says, 'what skill would be used?'

Tobias pokes a kawaii little cabbit - It's dead, Tobias.

JamaciaMan says, 'another zip? and with what skill?'

Chaykin says, 'I think storage strings should be no_damage like the skyblade'

LadyAce says, 'they're not magic'

Coren says, 'a smidge of a zip'

Coren nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

Tobias says, 'Well, how are they damaged, then?'

LadyAce says, 'restring them on to another storage item'

Tobias giggles.

LadyAce says, 'talk to an imm.'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Tobias says, 'that's a hassle for an imm, though'

LadyAce says, 'they're storage.'

JamaciaMan snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'you should put them on eq :P'

Tobias says, 'Not if its an aux item ^_~'

Tobias pokes a kawaii little cabbit - It's dead, Tobias.

Tobias ducks to the ground.

Tobias says, 'Should I rent an aux item just so I can repair it? ^^;'

Fear nods her agreement with Tobias.

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

Fear says, 'they can't be much rent..'

Chaykin giggles.

LadyAce says, 'just request a restring.'

Chaykin says, 'just string it to something innocuous, light and low rent'

LadyAce says, 'if you scrap it, it'll restring itself :)'

McDougan says, 'what about zips that went through a dt, though?'

Tobias says, 'I'm not scrapping it!'

Tobias comforts a kawaii little cabbit.

McDougan says, 'aye?'

McDougan says, 'whash tae doo then?'

McDougan pokes a little druid doll, wearing an 'Institute of Healing Arts' t-shirt - It's dead, McDougan.

McDougan pokes a Morpheus the Ferret Action Doll - It's dead, McDougan.

LadyAce says, 'zips survive dts'

Quimby says, 'you mean like this'

Quimby gets a teddy bear in a sailor suit from a leather-lined satchel.

McDougan says, 'grrr!'

Quimby begins using a teddy bear in a sailor suit.

Quimby says, 'fuego gave me that'

McDougan says, 'aye, but they can be damaged by fire after'

McDougan says, 'I think that undamagable ish shenshible'


Watery & Fiery Death Vials

Fear says, 'umm, along chaykin's lines with throwing, can create watery and fiery death maybe be looked at? they don't seem worth using to me, even at 100 mind.'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Fear.

LadyAce says to Fear, 'I don't think we're doing a lot of spell reworking right now, but you can put it in on idea for when we do'

Fear shakes her head in disagreement with LadyAce.



JamaciaMan says, 'one is...what about gernades and mortars, they sell them in ww2 but we can't use them?'

LadyAce says, 'they used to work'

JamaciaMan says, 'maybe a small explosion, capable of hurting slightly to a stun'

JamaciaMan says, 'and mortars too, what about hitting somebody 3 rooms away'

JamaciaMan says, 'making a blast and a known entry...'

Quimby says, 'and we used to kill newbies with em by mistake of course'

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

JamaciaMan says, 'you hear a faint whistling growing louder...and louder...and louder....KABOOM!'

LadyAce says, 'report the problem on bug channel for us?'

JamaciaMan says, 'anyways, that was crappy thing to ask, but on to the next question'


Elder Games

JamaciaMan says, 'what about something AFTER level 50, maybe a possible remort...'

Sandra wrinkles her nose distastefully.

JamaciaMan says, 'other than exp and coupons'

Coren says, 'level 56'

LadyAce says, 'we've traditionally steered away from remorting'

JamaciaMan says, 'why?'

Chaykin says, 'what is remorting?'

McDougan says, 'remorting?'

LadyAce says, 'it's common enough in other muds'

Kaige says, 'yuck.'

Kaige wrinkles her nose distastefully.

Sandra says, 'next we'll have to put in midgaard'

JamaciaMan nods solemnly.

Sandra shivers uncomfortably.

Ea! says to Kaige, 'I think this one is yours.'

Ea! ducks to the ground.

Herra says, 'making an imm into a char again?'

McDougan says, 'ne'er haird it?'

JamaciaMan says, 'I see...well, what about something else?'

Coren says, 'yea, let's get a midgaard'

Quimby says, 'remort so i can be a cause/create mage'

Coren says, 'and a donation room'

LadyAce says, 'usually it involves starting again at level 1'

Herra says, 'oh I see'

Herra says, 'I think that sucks for this mud'

McDougan says, 'why wuid ye want tae''

Herra says, 'it wont work out well'

Tobias nods solemnly.

Chaykin says, 'why is that a good thing? you could just perma and remake'

JamaciaMan says, 'its just too boring once you hit 50, you either chat, exp for redeems, or pkill'

LadyAce says, 'but you keep your stats and hp/ma/mv'

Kaige says, 'remorting is where you suddenly become level 1 again with all the old skills/etc you had at max level for a new class... we don't have classes, so it doesn't make much sense to remort for that reason'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'bleh'

McDougan shudders.

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Kaige.

Chaykin says, 'that's like playing Doom in God mode'

LadyAce says, 'I think it ends up being a break in the fiction'

JamaciaMan says, 'what about a pure level 50 area?'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'hello I'm a newbie again, only I really rock!!'

Tobias says, 'SSS-wielding level ones.'

Herra says, 'another thing about remorting is when you choose a new fight type, you ussually lose like, half of your old skills'

Coren says, 'we need another hard area for big people only, thats what everyone wants, another hell'

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'phear /\/\y l33t skillz'

McDougan says to LadyAce, 'and ye gain more hp'

Tobias cowers in fear of Kaige's wrath!

Sandra says, 'well, we could easily take one of the 3 level 50 areas and restrict them to level 50 only =P'

Fear says, 'that's going a bit far, sandra :p'

Sandra says to Fear, 'yea, but I feel my meanstreak today'

Kaige says to Coren, 'it's coming'

LadyAce nods her agreement with McDougan.

Tobias says, 'Hades!'

LadyAce says, 'on some muds, that's what they do.'

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'what is it?'

Herra says, 'so example, Quimby is a 3c cause mage, and turns into a create, that means now he can only be at most, a 2c cause, and a 2c create.'

Coren says to Kaige, 'im fidgeting in anticipation'

JamaciaMan rolls his eyes heavenward.

LadyAce says, 'But let's talk about what Jama is really asking'

LadyAce says, 'which is 'more stuff post 50''

LadyAce says, 'right?'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'elder game is another name for it.'

JamaciaMan says, 'exactly, doesn't HAVE to be remorting'

Kaige says, 'what do you do, once you've "won"'

Rosaline says, 'sl should be restricted to only lvl 50s'

Quimby says, 'uhm hell no'

JamaciaMan says, 'maybe level 50 only games?'

Quimby says, 'that would be stupid'

Tobias says, 'How about big involved quests with random sections.'

JamaciaMan nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'We've surely had a lot of people getting 100 mil'

LadyAce says, 'and beyond'

Herra says, 'No WaY!'

Fear shivers uncomfortably.

Herra says, 'why make SL only level 50?'

LadyAce says, 'it's no longer Stick's thing only :)'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

JamaciaMan says, 'I'm talking about making a brand new level 50 only area, not just restricting current areas, that'd just piss people off'

Coren says to LadyAce, 'its pkok, not that its bad, its just making more people xp'

Chaykin says, 'add way harder mobs, and add levels 50-75 or something'

Rosaline says, 'because its the biggest xp gathering run ont the mud'

Herra says, 'why not leave SL alone, and make a NEW level 50 only area, that is similiar to SL?'

LadyAce says, 'so that's a sign to us that people want more things to do at those higher levels'

McDougan says, 'wheersh shtick onyeway?'

Herra says, 'thats why it should be all levels'

Coren says, 'hell will be our new level 50 area'

Coren says, 'soon'

LadyAce says, 'I'm not fond of '50 only' approaches'

Sandra says, 'I feel sorry for you guys when Hell goes in. Hehe.'

Herra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Coren says, 'hell is going to rock'

Rosaline says, 'give us more levels then'

Herra says, 'the biggest frustration is not being able to participate'

Rosaline sticks her tongue out at LadyAce. =P

Herra says, 'there are already enough areas like that.'

LadyAce says, 'I find that those restrictions are arbitrary and encourage people to see a bigger distinction between 49 and 50 than they should'

Kaige says, 'or even between 24 and 25'

JamaciaMan says to LadyAce, 'I see what you mean'

Chaykin says, 'Let us get up to level 80 or something'

LadyAce says, 'I think we have a pretty good 'elder game' for 3 of the 4 char types...you can always pk, rp, explore'

LadyAce says, 'where it's missing is the achiever'

LadyAce says, 'and that's a toughie'

McDougan nods solemnly.

Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Coren snickers at Quimby nastily.

Kaige says, 'hades is Croaker's thing... hell is Kae's new version of Dante's hell.'

Tobias says to Quimby, 'Its ancient hell ^_~'

LadyAce says, 'grouping areas cover that some'

Kaige says, 'hey we could do las vegas as ind hell'

Kaige snickers softly.

Coren says, 'I better read dante's inferno before trying the area'

LadyAce says, 'really clever mobs might do that too'

Rosaline says, 'why do we need two hells?'

Quimby says, 'hell hades same thing in my book'

Chaykin says to Kaige, 'Nah, you mean New Jersey'

Fear says to Kaige, 'no, that'd be japan ;)'

Coren says, 'we dont'

Sandra says to Kaige, 'cleveland!'

Kaige says to Chaykin, 'or alabama'

JamaciaMan says to Coren, 'I would, its an excellent book'

McDougan says, 'Hadesh ish verra different'

Fear snickers softly.

Coren says, 'hades is anc hell, dante's is a more poetic version'

LadyAce says, 'figuring out how to kill a particularly clever mob might take some real experience, special knowledge and equipment, etc.'

McDougan says, 'it'sh divided intae four partsh, wi' three headsh'

Rosaline says, 'so? why do we need two hells?'

Kaige says, 'hades is also going to be very small in comparison'

LadyAce says, 'why do we need two englands?'

JamaciaMan says, 'dante's a more metaphoric version =P'

McDougan says, 'elyshian fieldsh, tartarush, and a short of pit of nae return'

Lorenzo says to Rosaline, 'they're different places because they're different stories.'

Coren says, 'yea, hell is gonna be gigantic'

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'three'

LadyAce giggles.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'why two australias? :P'

Sandra says, 'Hell is about 300 rooms or so.'

Coren says, 'biiiiigg'

JamaciaMan says, 'not too mention a little bias towards ancient rome'

Tobias whistles appreciatively.

Chaykin says, 'New Jersey: land of smelly oil refineries and not much else'

Rosaline says, 'oh so ok :) i get it'

LadyAce smiles at Rosaline.

Rosaline giggles.

LadyAce says, 'you'll the difference once you go in there'

McDougan says, 'Ruled by Rhadamush, and sheveral othersh. theresh titansh imprishoned theer'

LadyAce says, 'not all peoples share the same vision of the land of the dead'

JamaciaMan says, 'the 3 people in hell being brutus cassius and judas'

JamaciaMan says, 'at least in the farthest pit'

Coren says, 'is that dantes?'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Coren.

Chaykin says, 'yeah, being eternally chewed up by Satan'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Chaykin.

Chaykin says, 'in each of his 3 heads'

Coren says, 'the titans will be in hades'

Chaykin says, 'Kae said there is a Satan mob :)'

Rosaline says, 'woo Titans!'

LadyAce says, 'you'll see what's there when it gets there :)'

Coren says, 'hell is gonna have big ol mean satan'

Coren says, 'and some evil only items, Im sure'

Sandra giggles.

JamaciaMan says, 'while the beating of his tremendous wings froze the lower rings of hell'

McDougan says to JamaciaMan, 'The three people in hadesh are judgesh. the three people in hell are being chewed by shatan'

Quimby says, 'we have too many damn aligned items'

LadyAce says to McDougan, 'it's your turn to ask'

JamaciaMan says to Quimby, 'I'd almost argue that we don't have enough'


Changes to Healing Methods?

McDougan says, 'what happened to... java oranmgesh, the nurshe in london, and fennel'

Coren says, 'heh'

McDougan says, 'none of them sheem tae heal any more'

JamaciaMan laughs with amusement.

McDougan says, 'and they ushed tae'

LadyAce has created a java orange!

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with McDougan.

Tobias says, 'fennel still does'

Tobias says, 'I just used it recently'

Chaykin says, 'java oranges refresh'

Rosaline licks LadyAce.

Chaykin says, 'the nurse in London bandages you'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with Chaykin.

McDougan says, 'only one hitpoint when I ushed it'

Kaige says, 'I don't think java did heal.. it has a spell on it still'

Coren says, 'fennel the mob or item'

Chaykin says, 'fennel heals a little'

LadyAce says, 'it uses a spell'

Sandra says, 'they still do the same thing they've always done, the way they've always done it, to my knowledge'

McDougan says, 'the nurshe USHED tae heal'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Sandra.

LadyAce says, 'so the result is the same as a spell, some fail some good some weak'

Chaykin says, 'the oranges have always been refresh'

JamaciaMan says, 'maybe with pills, but not otherwise'

McDougan says, 'when I trid fennel, it dinnae heal at all'

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Sandra says, 'nothing is 1--%'

LadyAce says, 'the spell failed, then'

Sandra says, 'er 100%'

Coren says, 'oranges are out of date, visit the lady that massages'

Chaykin says to McDougan, 'it doesn't always'

Rosaline says to McDougan, 'sometimes items don't heal'

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

Coren grins evilly.

Kaige says, 'the nurse hasn't changed in about a year.'

Kaige says, 'and I can't tell what exactly changed there, or if it was just spacing.'

McDougan says to Kaige, 'I am over five yearsh old'

LadyAce says, 'I don't remember the nurse healing any time recently at all...'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'me either'

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'that's why I think it was only a change in the indents on that act. =)'


Skull Staff

McDougan says, 'The shkull shtaff, the besht con weepun, prooly'

McDougan says, 'an absholute nichtmare tae get'

McDougan says, 'so... why doesh it not have +five shtatsh?'

McDougan says, 'theresh deshtry weaponsh thatch casht immoliate, asnd shtrength, and both have a full 5'

Sandra says, 'I wouldn't consider the skull staff the best con weapon.'

McDougan says, 'I shay that we conshtitushion ladsh desherve a good con weapon, full five, wi' a good attack'

Varnel says, 'it's really nice one :P'

Chaykin says, 'I like the whiffle bat myself'

McDougan says, 'and the shkull shtaffish a logical Shummer odyshey update'

Tobias says, 'I think metacomat's staff is better.'

Quimby thanks Sandra heartily.

Quimby says, 'finally someone i dont have to argue with'

LadyAce says, 'there are good weapons with stats that are +5. Not all items are going to be maxxed out'

JamaciaMan says, 'I prefer the old fashioned heavy brahman with poison'

Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

JamaciaMan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'that's the way it goes, we can't max it all, we have to have balance. Stuff to earn your way up to'

JamaciaMan says, 'like my Wrath!'

Varnel says, 'metacomats is a brahman clone thats good only'

JamaciaMan brandishes the Wrath of JAH menacingly.

McDougan says, 'have you tried to get a shkull shtaff?'

Tobias nods his agreement with McDougan.

Tobias says, 'I had one till I DT'd.'

Quimby says, 'i would rather brahmans were tformed i can't see a blacksmith forging/repairing a wooden staff'

LadyAce says, 'I helped someone get one once.'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Sandra says, 'I have more con characters than there are morts in this room =P'

Tobias snickers softly.

Coren says to Sandra, 'that's creepy'

Sandra has tried them all.

Varnel says to Sandra, 'i planned 5 con, 1 non-con :P'

Lorenzo counts heads.

Quimby says, 'ive only like the brahman'

Varnel says, 'i got 2 con's done only 3 to go'

Sandra giggles.

McDougan says, 'The shkull shtaff ish ithe end of a lang area, that requiresh a really huge group tae get it'

Varnel says, 'how about skull staff is too hard hard to get and brahman is too EASY to get'

McDougan says, 'theresh nae other reward but it and a battered hat.'

Varnel says, 'i think brahman staff should be made harder to get'

Tobias says, 'And metacomat's staff is way too fun to get ^_~'

Quimby says, 'its not that hard to get if you do it right'

Sandra says, 'and the fact that you actually made it thru'

Quimby says, 'you mean too painful to get toby'

LadyAce says, 'and it's fun....'

Chaykin says, 'the opera basement isn't THAT big'

Chaykin says, 'it's like the first part of old hell'

Chaykin shrugs helplessly.

Sandra says, 'I don't even think it's that big, really'

Varnel says, 'i think an entire run tho for a skull staff, should be a bit more rewarding'

Quimby says, 'well i think the blackstaff isn't worth the trouble getting 30 hp is nothing'

McDougan says, 'and at the end...'

Varnel says, 'whos area is paris opera?'

McDougan says, 'Sae in total, theresh a big area tae get to.'

Kaige says, 'Bart's'

Varnel says, 'does he still log on?'

McDougan says, 'The shtaff, hat, and mashk are all ye get'

Kaige says, 'croaker was last updating it...'

Kaige nods her agreement with Varnel.

McDougan says, 'Why not revishe it..'

McDougan says, 'Unlesh...'

Varnel says, 'i think it is due for a revise at least'

LadyAce says, 'you can put the suggestion in on idea, and then the maintainer can look at it'

Kaige says, 'he's very busy with opera season right now tho'

McDougan says, 'Weel, ne'er mind thatch thocht'

Takaya says, 'bah not croaker, he'll put some crazy maze and a bunch of dts'

Varnel says, 'skull staff has been exactly the same for at least 5 years'

Varnel says, 'the 5 years i remember'

McDougan says, 'ANYWAY, why not give a little more reward tae the shtaff, sheeing how hard it ish tae get'

Wes says to Takaya, 'its already a crazy maze :'

Kaige points to what Ladyace just said.

Wes snickers at Takaya nastily.

Takaya says to Wes, 'not its not =P'

Varnel says, 'i'm going to send a note to bart for ideas'

Sandra says, 'well, lets put it this way: We probably won't be changing the skullstaff anytime soon'

Wes says, 'I doubt bart ever logs on'

Wes smirks.

McDougan says, 'Oh, one more thing'

Kaige says, 'he hasn't been around since May. Like I said, he's off in an opera.'

McDougan says, 'if you get the mashk from the phantom, can e re-get the phantomsh tattooo?'

Rosaline frowns at McDougan.

Varnel says, 'ahh i will send to croaker then :P'

Sandra says, 'most quests are usually one-time only'

Sandra says to Varnel, 'Croaker's busy with Hades'

Varnel goes EEK! in distress.

Varnel says, 'i forgot'

Varnel nods solemnly.

McDougan says, 'aye, but If ye got the mashk again?'

Sandra says, 'see my last answer :)'

McDougan says, 'It would add more reward tae keeling the phantom, ash weel'

Varnel giggles.

LadyAce says, 'some quests make sense for someone to do multiple times...the phantom one doesn't really fit there'

Takaya says to McDougan, 'you can get the mask over and over'

Chaykin says, 'the staff is either worth the trouble to get it, or it's not and you won't'

Chaykin shrugs philosophically.

McDougan nods solemnly.

McDougan says, 'aye, but it wuid make keeling the phantom muir worthwhile for the resht of the groop'


DTs Making Zip Strings?

Herra says, 'say Im suppoosed to make a report about a bug with a DT'

Herra says, 'someone I know DT'ed and the DT made their intricately engraved bracelet into a zip string.'

LadyAce says, 'you'll wanna use the bug channel to comment on that one'

Rosaline says to Herra, 'i've gotten those alot'

LadyAce says, 'bug "what happened"'

Herra says, 'and he asked me over the phone to report it cause he hadda go to work.'

Chaykin says, 'why, did those get changed or taken out or something?'

Herra snickers softly.

Chaykin says, 'usually items that aren't in the game anymore get made into zips'

LadyAce says, 'or where the numbering scheme has been changed'

Rosaline says, 'i have a zip pelt of the bengal tiger or what not...'

Chaykin says, 'and they won't let you restring em :P'

Chaykin grumbles.

Tobias comforts Chaykin.

Tobias giggles.

Chaykin chuckles politely.

Wes chuckles politely.


Description Philosophy?

Rosaline says, 'well i had two q's one was... why do we always have to create a "human" character? and the other was... um... well i can't remember so i'll just ask if i can have a cookie :P'

Chaykin laughs with amusement.

LadyAce says, 'For us it's a matter of the 'feel' of the mud'

Rosaline says, 'feel?'

LadyAce says, 'we have chosen a theme of history and mythology'

Rosaline gropes the mud, "feels fine to me..."

LadyAce says, 'and we strive to stay consistent with that on all of the 'imm-determined' pieces'

Rosaline is completely boggled.

LadyAce says, 'player-determined stuff can wander pretty far afield of that theme'

LadyAce says, 'but imm-determined stuff stays within the theme'

Rosaline says, 'ah...'

LadyAce says, 'and descs are something that we have left in the 'imm determined' category'

McDougan says, 'there ish a point for humanoidsh, though'

Rosaline says to LadyAce, 'but why can't we have blue skinned humans?'

Wes nods solemnly.

Wes says, 'blue man group'

Wes throws his head back and cackles with insane glee!

McDougan says, 'dwarvesh, elvesh, pookahsh in human form.'

Herra says to LadyAce, 'I think it's cool you make us make people and stuff, could you imagine if everyone was an animal?'

Lorenzo says to Wes, 'ugh'

Herra says to LadyAce, 'after all, this isnt Dr.DoLittle'

Wes says to Lorenzo, 'they're good!'

Varnel chuckles politely.

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Wes peers at Lorenzo, looking him up and down.

McDougan says, 'I don't shee why we have tae ushe " a giant of a man" (wi' an ekshamplethat ish shimply ridiculoush'

Rosaline says to Herra, 'I'm not talking about being an animal, i'm talking about being something else :P'

LadyAce says, 'well, I'm not familiar with the blue-skinned desc .. you asked for one and were turned down?'

Herra says to Rosaline, 'like what, a goblin?'

Wes says, 'humanoids'

Rosaline shakes her head.

Rosaline nods her agreement with Herra.

McDougan says, 'when jusht a shimple giant, if not taken more than sheven feet, or dwarf, if not taken below three feet, sheemsh entirely reashonable'

Herra says, 'what kinda humanoids?'

LadyAce says, 'you might want to work with an imm to get the impression you want without going past the bounds'

Rosaline says to LadyAce, 'No someone wanted to be an X-man character.. the char has blue skin but is human...'

Varnel says, 'even 8 feet for a giant'

McDougan says, 'dwarvesh, elvesh, changelingsh, are three that sheem guid choisshesh'

Wes says, 'George Mureshean(sp) he was a giant'

McDougan says, 'ye allow vamiresh. why nae dwarvesh?'

LadyAce says, 'I had a friend in high school whose skin turned green-blue frome eating nothing but blueberries for months'

Lorenzo says, 'there should be a prohibition on characters from popular film.'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

McDougan says, 'if mythological dwarvesh'

Rosaline giggles at LadyAce.

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

Wes chuckles politely at Lorenzo's feeble witticism.

Rosaline says to LadyAce, 'then why was he turned down?'

Herra says, 'although, with there being mages, I think they were part of fantasy, so I dont see why you cant be any other fantasy char'

Quimby says, 'my dad knew the tallest woman in the world ( per guiness) she lived in INdiana, was a relative of a friend of his'

LadyAce says, 'I can't say in particular, I didn't see the desc req'

McDougan says to Herra, 'magesh aren't jusht fantashy, theer mythology'

McDougan says, 'bt sae are elvesh and dwarvesh and giantsh'

Herra says to McDougan, 'but so is everything else.'

Varnel says, 'yes elves are mythological creatures as well'

McDougan says to Herra, 'for inshtanshe, mutantsh, godzilla, and the like'

Herra says, 'thing is, Mages arent a race.'

McDougan says to Herra, 'aliensh'

Herra says, 'Elf, Dwarve, Halfling, they are all races'

Varnel says, 'but it's still a prt of your rp'

LadyAce says, 'well, I don't know why the desc was rejected, cuz I didn't see it at the time'

McDougan says, 'nae nesherially'

Chaykin grumbles.

LadyAce says, 'so I can't really answer.'

Rosaline says, 'OH! i remembered my REAL second q'

Rosaline tugs on LadyAce's sleeve imploringly.

LadyAce says, 'usually people appeal those to me or Zandy and we make the final call, and that one didn't come to me, so....'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Rosaline.


Accent Moods?

Rosaline says, 'Ok, i idead something awhile back about having accents is that going to be possible?'

Herra says, 'you can make your own charcater'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we'll do accents, but we have considered voice type'

McDougan says to Rosaline, 'Ye mean accentsh ash moodsh'

Herra says, 'to me, thats just laziness, to have something do it for you'

Rosaline nods her agreement with McDougan.

Chaykin nods his agreement with Herra.

Herra says, 'McDougan has an accent.'

Rosaline says, 'NO! not FOR YOU'

Wes says, 'i'd quit if everyone talked like mcdougan'

LadyAce says, 'I think you'd be better off either doing it as you go, or else drop in a piece in your client to do it for you'

McDougan says to Herra, 'I tink she meansh ash moodsh'

Takaya nods his agreement with Wes.

Rosaline says with a thick british accent etc.

McDougan says to LadyAce, 'thash a good example o' whit she meansh'

LadyAce says, 'that might be doable, although it's also doable with your client by you'

Rosaline is completely boggled.

McDougan says to LadyAce, 'it hash a short of irish mood.'

Rosaline says, 'But i don't know how to do it'

Wes says, 'you could emote'

Sandra says, 'I made those up. They're just emotes'

Rosaline nods her agreement with Sandra.

LadyAce says, 'something which would alias what you type to plug it in between an emote and a 'with a blah blah accent' line'

Herra nods solemnly.

Rosaline says, 'and with my idea they wouldn't have to be emotes'

Chaykin says, 'Rowane is a good example of that'

Herra says, 'you can set a trigger to work that way'

McDougan says to Sandra, 'aye, but they'd make a n ekshellent mood'

Wes says to you in a boston accent, 'I parked the car in harvard yard.'

Lorenzo whispers conspiratorially in a drunken brogue, 'Hey, McDougan, you want to hit the pub?'

Wes nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

Varnel snickers at Wes nastily.

Chaykin giggles.

McDougan says, 'whatsh thish aboot bloody clientsh!'

LadyAce says, 'like you'd type britsay foo, and code your client to plug whatever you type after britsay, into an emote'

McDougan says, 'preshumin everyun can afford and ushesh them are ye?'

Chaykin says, 'dood, how bout those sawx buddy?'

McDougan says, 'weelm, I dunnae!'

Tobias says, 'I use a free client'

Tobias giggles.

Wes says, 'they lost to TB!'

McDougan says, 'nnd I dunnae woont tae be dishcriminated!'

Wes contemplates hanging himself, but gives up for lack of rope or a tree.

Tobias says to McDougan, 'There's a lot of free ones...'

Chaykin says in a Masshole accent, 'Dooood!'

Herra says to Chaykin, 'they got lucky!'

Rosaline says, 'giggle'

McDougan says, 'Dunnae matter'

LadyAce says, 'free clients will do this sorta thing'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Rosaline says to LadyAce, 'fine so they'll never do accent moods?'

Tobias says, 'I've yet to figure out how to do variables in GMUD.'

McDougan says, 'Ish bluidy daft tae ushe clientsh ash an ekshcushe'

McDougan says, 'EITHER shay I dunnae tink we can do that, or do it'

LadyAce says, 'I think that we're more likely to do things which are more common across humanity'

McDougan says, 'dunnae try tae push it oontae ush'

LadyAce says, 'rather than things for subsets'

LadyAce says, 'we talk about anger, whispers, joy. the specific stuff ends up being filled in by the client'

McDougan says, 'i dunnae ken.'


Accuracy & Guns?

Takaya says, 'alrighty i got a few questions heheh, i was told shooting right now due to the code is only based on perc not the gun at all'

Takaya peers intently at a nickel-plated .45.

LadyAce says, 'the gun plays into it.'

Ea! says to Takaya, 'Accuracy doesn't play as much of a role as we'd like it to, but it is part of the formula.'

Wes says, 'you could use a flippin I dont know...flintlock and do mad damage and you're bitchin? :P'

Takaya says, 'is there anyway you can make the bigger higher rent guns more worthwhile?'

Ea! says to Takaya, 'Yes, by rewriting the shoot code. '

McDougan says, 'Why ish there only one gun wi' shtatsh?'

Takaya says, 'i can do almost the same damage with a webley for 900rent'

Takaya says to Ea!, 'plan on doing that at all?'

Ea! says, 'It needs doing, but it's not at the top of the list right now -- too many other stuff to work on.'

Chaykin says, 'there are 2 guns with stats I know of'

Takaya says to Ea!, 'what is on the top of the list?'

Ea! says, 'Reducing the frequency of the crashes.'


Medieval Odyssey Plans?

McDougan says, 'What can we eshpecht ash we enter intae the mediaeval shummer odyshey?'

LadyAce says, 'I'm still hoping to get the klein update in...'

McDougan says, 'alsho, will ony muir anshient changesh occur thish time?'

LadyAce says, 'and a crusades one....'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'woo'

McDougan says, 'och!'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'ack, Crusades is gonna be BIGGER?'

Chaykin faints.

LadyAce says, 'general area updates to other eras happened during june, it'll be the same all summer i spose'

LadyAce says, 'not bigger'

LadyAce says, 'just cleaned up a little'

LadyAce says, 'bugs stomped and such'

Chaykin says, 'ah :)'

Chaykin says, 'will we be able to get charmies past sentries?'

Chaykin ducks to the ground.

LadyAce says, 'that's on the list'

McDougan says, 'Aye, but I'm tinking new quesht, noo room, new mob, or even jusht rewqairkin o' thingsh tae be muir ____ like tara got'

LadyAce says, 'we'll have a newbie kit game'

LadyAce says, 'maybe a trivia'

LadyAce says, 'hopefully a tinyplot'

LadyAce says, 'that sort of thing'

LadyAce says, 'Kaige will surely update her stuff'

McDougan says, 'will there be anythin on the linesh o' the tara update''

LadyAce says, 'maybe...it's up to the area maintainers how they update stuff'

McDougan says, 'beshidesh kleinshtadt, I mean'

Herra says, 'Klein needs an update'


Inactive Immorts?

Chaykin says, 'okie this question is about immortals'

Chaykin says, 'I read someplace in the rules, or on the website I think, that imms are inactive as long as they have some timeline for coming back within 6 months or something. but obviously most of the ones on the inactive list right now have been go'

Chaykin says, 'gone way longer than that'

LadyAce says, 'yeah, we haven't been really assiduous in that area'

LadyAce says, 'it's a difficult topic for us.'

Chaykin says, 'how so?'

LadyAce says, 'well, say you got busy, and didn't log in, but you archived. You might be mad if you came back and we'd just decided to delete you because it'd been a while'

LadyAce says, 'it doesn't encourage people to return'

Chaykin says, 'yeah, but some of those people have been gone for years'

Coren says, 'heh'

Ea! says, 'Yeah, we need to go through that again and deal with it...'

LadyAce says, 'it can bring in an emotional component to the decision, and we try to spend our emotions on the game instead of on chewing on each other when we can'

LadyAce says, 'we do need to do it, but it's not really necessary for the mud's operation, and can detract from it'

Coren says, 'it must be hard, being an immortal'

Ea! nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'why do you ask?'

Chaykin says, 'why does it require chewing on people? they just aren't doing their job, you could just, maybe mort them back or something'

LadyAce says, 'if you don't mind the counterquestion...I'm curious.'

McDougan says, 'for the people in inactive, can ye tell ush who it ish known hash a planned date of return?'

McDougan says, 'ye mentioned bart ish in an oper, and the like'

LadyAce says, 'well, a lot of people interpret that sort of thing as a slap in the face'

Chaykin giggles.

LadyAce says, 'and it hurts their feelings'

LadyAce says, 'and they send back angry messages, and then we have to try to respond to them, and such'

Chaykin says, 'I'm just talking about people who have been gone 2+ years. What do they expect to happen?'

McDougan says, 'Aye, and they do come back'

Chaykin says, 'yeah like Fionn'

McDougan says, 'Breton wash gone thatch long'

Chaykin giggles.

Quimby says, 'but didnt they immort because they proposed certain things, if they aren't here to uphold their proposal why should we keep immorts that are gone over 2 years or more'

McDougan says, 'hhesh back noo'

LadyAce says, 'I understand why you say that, but it doesn't hurt anything to leave them in the inactive list, is all.'

Herra nods her agreement with Quimby.

McDougan says, 'Sae itsh shoomtimesh besht tae be patient'

McDougan says, 'and hope'

Herra says, 'they are just holding spots for people who could be more productive'

LadyAce says, 'there's no quota in place'

Chaykin says to LadyAce, 'yeah, I guess that's true'

McDougan says to Herra, 'that preshumesh they're coonted when proposhalsh are taken'

LadyAce says, 'we could have fifty inactives, it wouldn't change how many imms we needed to run the place'

LadyAce says, 'we also keep them up there as a sign of our own failure as managers to keep our employees :P'

Chaykin says, 'are any of those people planning to come back though?'

LadyAce says, 'we hope that many of them will.'

Chaykin nods solemnly.

McDougan says to Chaykin, 'she mentioned bart wash in an opera, but wash eshpechted back'

Chaykin says, 'okie'

LadyAce says, 'we might not have a good reason to hope that, but we do'

Chaykin says, 'in an opera?'

Chaykin is completely boggled.

McDougan says to LadyAce, 'who dae ye know that are eshpected back inm, shay, the nesht shiksh monthsh'

Chaykin says, 'maybe he got trapped in the basement and can't find his way out. Poetic justice'

LadyAce says, 'Clutch, Govan, Pman, Aermid, Seth and Vannessa...I have some hope that they'll come back'

LadyAce says, 'I'm not really sure about the others'

Chaykin says, 'Aermid was really great'

Chaykin smiles happily.

Sandra says, 'pman will probably be back once he settles in with his new job and stuff'

Chaykin says to Sandra, 'sweet, tell him good luck'

Sandra nods her agreement with Chaykin.


Immorting Times?

Herra says, 'wish you guys immorted more than once a year.'

LadyAce says, 'we imm 2 times a year actually'

LadyAce says, 'march and september'

LadyAce says to Herra, 'more often than that, and we'd spend all our time imming and training, and no time doing mud work'


Charity's Area Progress?

McDougan says, 'The underwater lechture by charity'

Chaykin says, 'didn't Charity have some kooky all-underwater area she was working on awhile back?'

McDougan says, 'it mentionsh a red shea ekshpsanshion, french polyneshia, nnd muir carribean underwater.'

LadyAce says, 'reef area'

Coren says, 'I thought it was a pyramid'

Chaykin says, 'that and the pyramid'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Chaykin.

McDougan says, 'Alsho, theersh charity'sh pyramid'

Coren says, 'mummys.'

McDougan says, 'Noo, I dunnae want tae be rude, but... how much o' it ish done?'

Coren says, 'heh'

LadyAce says, 'I'm not sure.'

Sandra says, 'you'd have to ask Charity, wouldn't ya?'

McDougan says, 'never shee her'

Coren says, 'she yelled at me today'

Coren says, 'she was here'

McDougan says, 'hech!'

Chaykin says, 'last I heard from Charity was when she took away a room name I'd already had approved by someone else :P'

McDougan says, 'I jusht wondered, becaushe she writesh guid areash, but she hash nae gotten a lot in of late'

Chaykin says, 'well, nobody's really gotten a new area in of late'

Chaykin shrugs helplessly.

Raydon says, 'most new areas are too out of the way for most to care....'

McDougan says, 'whit aboot alashka?'

McDougan says to Raydon, 'daft shtatement'

Scraps says, 'ive never even been to alaska...'

Raydon says to McDougan, 'its true'

McDougan says, 'Whit da ye want? everything tae clushter aroond the shtag?'

Chaykin says, 'I think if we had more hometowns, we wouldn't have the Euro-centric traffic we do now'

Raydon says to McDougan, 'most people just stick to the standard areas'

Sandra says, 'their loss'

Chaykin says, 'but, easier said than done :P'

Raydon nods his agreement with Sandra.

McDougan says, 'I think what we need ish more transhesh'

Scraps says, 'people stick to basic hometowns...'

Scraps says, 'there should be important quests forcing people to explore...'

Raydon says, 'tara, lima, germany, pd, and sl'

Scraps says, 'not many in lima that i know of.. (course i havent been there for over a mudyear)'

Chaykin says to Raydon, 'you wanna make SL a hometown?'

Chaykin chuckles politely.

McDougan says, 'if, shay, ye cuid make the nazxa/shanfranshishco/lima area a touch more rewarding to low-to high levelesh, I imagine a lot of traffic wuid mobve there'

Quimby says, 'id like to see agrabah mages get root'

Scraps says, 'youd need to make easy mobs in a hometown.. it would be confusing to newbies...'

McDougan says, 'Jusht add muir shtat equipment.'

Chaykin says to Raydon, 'if you started a char there and got it anywhere close to level 2 on your own, I'd buy you one'

Scraps says, 'mages have meditate non? why root?'

Raydon says to Chaykin, 'buy me a what?'

Raydon blinks.

Raydon is using raw and misses lots

Scraps says, 'what root is for i am not sure of as of yet...'

Coren says, 'root is for hp'

Chaykin says to Scraps, 'you can heal hp faster'

Coren says, 'meditate is for mana'

McDougan says, 'I shushpecht the besht thing done for eshploin o' late wash the ashtec tinyplot'

Quimby says, 'why should tarans have root and meditate?'

Coren says, 'because they're faeries'

Coren says, 'all of them'

Scraps says, 'well agrabahs can get all circles'

Quimby says, 'id liek to see root for more hometowns'

Scraps nods his agreement with Quimby.

Chaykin nods his agreement with Quimby.

Scraps says, 'agrabah would make sense for root though'

Coren says, 'lima?'

Coren says, 'I dunno if lima has root'

Quimby says, 'i dont agree with augmenting then having the ability to root as well'

Scraps says, 'of course can you roott and meditate at the same time?'

Chaykin says, 'root being for Tara only doesn't make a lot of sense, because if you're a fighter from there, you can just up your stats a little bit and be able to augment'

Quimby says, 'i have no clue never had root'

Scraps nods his agreement with Chaykin.

Quimby says, 'no lima doesnt'

Scraps says, 'only tara does...'


Judge Easier to Get?

Scraps says, 'i was wondering if you could make judge an easier skill to get?'

Scraps says, 'because consider is getting really useless for me'

Herra says to Scraps, 'thats the whole point of being a newbie'

Scraps says, 'all i mean is like more locations maybe...'

Scraps says, 'but bieng a lowbie is so boring!!'

Herra says, 'thats brutal'

Sandra says, 'there's actually quite a few places that you can learn judge'

Herra nods her agreement with Sandra.

Scraps says, 'all i know of is will o the green and those guards...'

Herra says, 'there are other skills with less learning points'

LadyAce says, 'ask around a little more to find more judge teachers, I'd say'

Scraps thanks LadyAce heartily.

LadyAce says, 'we've increased the number of teachers of lower skills in the last year or so'

Scraps says, 'really?'

Scraps says, 'cool'

Quimby says, 'theres a lot of complaints on chat about people killing skill teachers, if its the only mob that teaches a skill/word wouldn't it be best if they had no desirable items at all?'

Herra says to Quimby, 'whos to say they still wont kill the mobs?'


Item Affects Showing?

Raydon points at a platinum leaf.

Raydon says, 'ok, well, like everyone knows this gives all sorts of fun stat effects'

Raydon says, 'is there any plan to like, show them?'

Scraps says, 'blackthorn ring is better...'

Raydon says, 'under score, or stat, or ?'

Raydon attempts to prod Ea! but Ea! isn't about to go anywhere.

Raydon patiently twiddles his thumbs.

Scraps sniffs sadly.

LadyAce says, 'idea that, I guess'

LadyAce says, 'if it's not on the list, that'll put it there.'

Raydon says, 'err, i did, well, like, oh, a few years ago'

Raydon laughs with amusement.

Raydon says, 'but why not'

LadyAce says, 'if it's been a few years, we might've lost it'

LadyAce says, 'idea it again :P'

Ea! says, 'Yes, effects from items should show up under status, but we haven't had time to do it yet.'


Anegus' Keywords Fixed

Scraps says, 'someone brought this up a little while ago....'

Scraps says, 'but aengus of the silver branch is 'man''

Scraps says, 'and fith fath (theif) is also man'

Coren says, 'and otis'

Coren ducks to the ground.
