Create Charm Changes

Dude says to LadyAce, 'is there more create tweaking going in this week?'

LadyAce says, 'I know it is still being done, not sure if it goes in this week or no'

Dude says, 'About Homunculi - Hp has been reduced... but nothing has been really added to them - how about making them able to cross water, or give them noticably more mv?'

Dude says, 'to make them better transports...'

Dude says, 'rather then just worthless'

Ea! says, 'We're increasing the move on average.'

LadyAce says, 'there are a lot of threads about this on the discussion board'

Ea! thinks that's in this week's list of changes, which he'll get to in a few minutes.

LadyAce says, 'the general intent is indeed to increase their mv and their carry power.'


Dispel Magic Bug?

Fear says to Ea!, 'not being able to dispel yourself from good spells while AA, bug or feature?'

Lachesis smiles happily.

Fear says, 'ie: str, detect illusion, waterwalk, etc..'

Ea! says, 'I'm not sure.'

Fear says to Ea!, 'well, it's working that way.'

Fear says to Ea!, 'works fine when non-AA.'

Puck says to Ea!, 'you're not sure about policy or about the cause?'

Ea! says to Puck, 'Right.'

Ea! says, 'I don't know if it was done intentionally or not...'

Fear is done, then.

Fear nods her agreement with Ea!.

Ea! says, 'If it was, it was to avoid some sort of abuse, but I don't know what it is.'

Fear says to Ea!, 'kinda a pain.'

Ea! says, 'I'll check the code in a minute to see if it sheds any light.'

Fear says to Ea!, 'I go to a water room alot, and use waterwalk exclusively.'

Ea! says, 'You reported that as a bug, right? Or did I see it on one of the boards?'

Fear nods her agreement with Ea!.

Fear says, 'I reported it.'

Kaige says, 'was this morning I saw it'

Dude says, 'its just not right'

Dude sighs loudly.

Fear says, 'sucks to rent it off with 1000 mana invested in charmies :p'

Puck ponders how it could be abused...

Ea! says, 'Okay, cool. If I forget, I'll make sure to look when I get to adding it to the list.'

Fear thanks Ea! heartily.


Unlimited Herbs for Sale?

Fear says, 'oh, I have another complaint. :p'

Fear says, 'about herbs.'

Fear says, 'uva-ursi are kinda overpowered, rent should be raised, or the certain mob should sell a limited amount.'

Puck says to Fear, 'there are three healing herbs at that rent'

Fear says to Puck, 'one of which you can buy unlimited amounts of.'

Puck says, 'I'd like to see more herbs in the wild, less in shops'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'there is a bug with that vendor. Expect it fixed'

Fear nods her agreement with Sandra.

LadyAce thanks Sandra heartily.

Fear says to Sandra, 'got ya.'

Wes chuckles politely at Sandra's feeble witticism.

Wes falls to his knees and worships Sandra's existence.

Kaige says, 'We try to limit those when they're sold, so if you report it at the vendors that do sell unlimitted quantities it will be fixed.'

Fear says to Kaige, 'only one vendor that I know of ;)'

Kaige nods solemnly.


Discussion of Tolerance

Fear says, 'just a note, if I hear another non-american tell me something like amercians deserved to die tuesday, get your delete buttons ready.'

Dude says to Fear, 'i actually didn't hear that'

Dude says to Fear, 'who said that?'

Sandra says, 'I don't really want to hear either side of those discussions. If I do, I'll probably not be very nice to either party.'

Fear says, 'it doesn't matter who said it.'

Jacob says, 'well calling people towelheads doesn't help'

Jacob says, 'im just saying one wrong doesn't make a right'

Jacob says, 'whatever that stupid saying is i have a headache'

Dude says, 'i think this comment deserves a little attention - i mean... ppl going back and forth with racist comments is kinda a serious issue?'

Fear nods her agreement with Dude.

Jacob says, 'i agree, i was ready to break spites neck earlier'

Jacob says, 'then he goes on an alt and continues it'

Fear says, 'yeah, that's one of them.'

Puck says to Jacob, 'did he believe it or was he trolling'

LadyAce says, 'we have rules against racial slurs.'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'not being inforced ;)'

Jacob says, 'he did it saturday night when we had that violence channel up as well'

LadyAce says, 'so the right thing to do is to alert any available imms to any violations you may see.'

Jacob says, 'no imms were on or if they were weren't listening'

Dude says to Jacob, 'whatever - he can make his 4$ an hour in new zealand or where ever the heck he is'

Jacob says, 'and insulting him does no good either'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'I did, said imm didnt want to get involved in a political discussion'

Fear shrugs helplessly.

Fear says, 'which made me even madder.'

Sandra says, 'log it, mail it, then ignore it.'

Fear will get over it, tho.

LadyAce says, 'the right person to appeal that to is Zandy, and if he doesn't satisfy you, Kaige.'

Jacob says, 'i may even have it if my scroll back is the same from this morning'

LadyAce says, 'if Kaige can't satisfy you, no one can :)'

ArchAngel says to Fear, 'what was the comment made then?'

Fear says, 'I'd just like to see imms make a statement about it.'

Akira rolls around on the ground with laughter.

Jacob says, 'actually i might'

Sandra nudges the welcome board over a few inches.

Sandra says, 'Ruf made one. And I've made several on chat.'

Jacob says, 'i have my login from 9 this morning'

Jacob says, 'i know sandra blew up the other night'

Puck says, 'no updates this week?'

Fear says to Sandra, 'yeah, I appreciate yours, I'd like to see it on a board.'

Dude says to Sandra, 'what did you say?'

LadyAce says, 'I think Ruf said it really well.'

Kaige says to Puck, 'coming'

Ea! says to Puck, 'I'm getting to it... nothing major, if I remember right.'

Sandra says, 'basically what Rufus said, but less eloquently ;)'

Jacob says, 'i think even ptah lost his temper tuesday'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandra.

Fear nods her agreement with Sandra.

Kaige says, 'mine too.'

Kaige says, 'Ptah definitely lost his temper. It was really scary the one post he wrote on one of the groups he was on.'

Sandra says, 'I do have a note that a friend mailed me this morning. After the Q&A, if you want to read it, stay here'

Jacob says, 'driving to new york or washington will do nothing but get in peoples way'

Jacob says, 'getting mad at people here cause they are arabic is stupid'

Fear says to Sandra, 'a friend?'

Sandra nods solemnly.

Kaige nods her agreement with Jacob.

Wes nods his agreement with Jacob.

ArchAngel says, 'i think we a need a imm that only worries about player to player relations to release some stress on the other imms'

Kaige says, 'getting mad at people here is pretty stupid anyway'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

Dude says, 'do arabic ppl even play here?'

Wes says, 'I onyl get mad at terrorists'

Fear says to Sandra, 'from?'

Akira says to Jacob, 'same vice-cersa'

Sandra says to Fear, 'Los Angeles'

Jacob says, 'i just avoided the incident near chicago i understand by 20 minutes'

Wes says, 'and bomb threats are slily..what sane terrorist would warn the people he wants to bomb first?'

Fear nods solemnly.

Wes is completely boggled.

LadyAce says, 'we do have some Arab players from time to time'

Fear says to Wes, 'a terrorists objective is to cause panick and chaos.'

Fear says, 'panic'

LadyAce says, 'certainly Kuwaitis and Saudis, and there's always people living outside their country of origin'

Akira says, 'What I think is ridiculous is the fact that kids in school are getting suspended, etc. for just making gun symbols with their fingers...read it in the local newspaper'

Wes says, 'Well I didn't read that anyplace.'


Worn as Shield vs On Arm?

ArchAngel says, 'i got a question there isn't a difference between worn as shield and worn on arm is there?'

Kaige nods her agreement with ArchAngel.

ArchAngel says, 'ok then why do i got a empty slot with worn as shield'

LadyAce says, 'do you want the short answer, or the long, history-filled answer?'

Kaige says, 'yup sure is. one is for small shield, the other is for large ones that are supported on the forearm'

Puck says, 'worn as shield takes a hold slot doesn't it?'

ArchAngel raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Kaige says to ArchAngel, 'because there are two different slots for it and the code doesn't know that you've got one filled at a time right now'

Puck says to LadyAce, 'historical please'

LadyAce says, 'Kaige is covering it actually :)'

LadyAce smiles at Kaige.

ArchAngel says, 'ahh you need to leave it as is specially if i can use two shields at once'

ArchAngel grins at himself. You must wonder what's in his mind.

LadyAce says, 'but it wouldn't matter if we didn't have players of some particular nationality -- the language doesn't become appropriate from it.'


Earthquake bug Fixed?

Fear says to Ea!, 'earthquake fix go in yet? :p'

Ea! didn't know about it until last week.

Kaige says, 'next week'

Ea! says to Fear, 'It was coded too late to make this week's cut off. '

LadyAce says, 'it bit my little brother, Haley logged it, and hooray, it's fixed :)'

Fear nods her agreement with Ea!.

Boreas says, 'sometimes I actually get stuck in the making a new char thing and can't get out.'

Dude says, 'man... i'm getting greater elementals with 94 hit points - and there's only 1 bug fix'

Fear says, 'I just remembered someone saying it would be going in, was curious ;)'

Kaige says to Dude, 'you do want things tested, yes?'

Fear says to Ea!, 'just the bug fix on that, or any tweaking?'

Boreas says, 'earthquake?'

Fear nods solemnly.

Dude says to Kaige, 'no, i want instantanious satisfaction at the expense of Ea! and his staff =P'

Kaige comforts Dude.

Puck snickers softly.

Akira smirks at Maggie.

Kaige says to Dude, 'sorry, it's a tricky balance between doing things too fast with no notice and getting things tested so ehty don't blow up in our face too'

Ea! says, 'It's just a bug fix at the moment. I don't want to say too much about next week's changes since they could well change.'

Fear pouts at Ea!.

Fear says to Ea!, 'the bug was the only thing cool about that spell. :p'

LadyAce says, 'we just need a bit more patience from you :)'

LadyAce smiles at Kaige.

Maggie giggles.

Puck nods solemnly.

Akira yawns.


Wall of Thorns Bug?

Fear says to Ea!, 'oh yeah, wall of thorns is buggy, that's it.'

Fear nods to herself - she must be getting senile.

Fear says, 'suppose to break if you move, sometimes doesn't.'

Fear says, 'but still does damage to you, which sucks. :p'


Network Change Progress?

Puck says to Ea!, 'how's the network change going?'

LadyAce says to Puck, 'we're holding off on it a while, lucky us.'

Puck nods solemnly.

Ea! says to LadyAce, 'Of course, Rhythm's debtors are trying to shut down the network sooner...'


New Area Updates?

LadyAce says, 'so, any other questions?'

Puck says, 'area updates?'

Puck says, 'i mean new area updates?'

LadyAce says, 'there's stuff in the works all the time -- check each LT or the welcome board for details'

Fear hasn't gotten an LT in forever.

Puck says, 'well, there's not much details, just the name of the new area and its builder.'

LadyAce says, 'last one was on the 4th'

LadyAce says, 'if you didn't get that one, we should figure out what's up'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'last one I got was like, April.'

LadyAce says, 'I have one in the works, I'm just a little...slow. Not much energy for the non essential'

LadyAce says, 'meant to do it Tuesday...'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says to Fear, 'send me your addy'

Fear says to LadyAce, 'I just got a new isp, I'll put it in at the login screen.'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Fear.


How're Imm Apps Going?

Puck says, 'how's the immortal apps process going?'

LadyAce says, 'going ok. We're discussing the applications yet'

LadyAce says, 'and soon enough we'll be voting'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'applicant interviews are supposed to be happening'


Locked Rooms in OOC?

Puck says, 'Why is the door to the OOC Library always locked?'

Sandra says, 'it's under construction!'

LadyAce says, 'cuz there is nothing in there'

Rahvin says, 'someone's updating it'

LadyAce says, 'Kae!'

Puck nods solemnly.

Fear says, 'why's the war room even have a lock?'

Sandra says, 'the meeting room?'

Fear nods her agreement with Sandra.

Sandra says, 'to give privacy when people want to hold meetings in there'

Puck says to Fear, 'for privacy. you can get the key from Paul I think'

Fear says to Sandra, 'when the last time someone held a meeting there? :p'

Sandra says, 'been a good while'

Fear nods her agreement with Sandra.

Ea! says, 'I used to use the Coder Meeting room about once a RL year, but it's gone now.'

Puck says, 'what's the point of a pk meeting if it can't disentegrate into a bloodbath'

LadyAce giggles at Puck.

Rahvin says, 'the tangled web of accept/rejects'

LadyAce says, 'so anyway, I think that we're all done.'

LadyAce smiles happily.

Ea! waves happily.

Fear gives Ea! a great big smooch!

LadyAce says, 'thanks for coming, guys.'

LadyAce waves happily.
