AA Healing Bug?

Sandman says, 'ok did yall look into the AA healing bug i reported?'

Sandman says, 'was wondering how thats working.. cuz it really sucks to not be able to heal when your aa to someone with a timer'

Kaige says to Ea!, 'was that the one I saw mention of the other day when i was sorting?' in the is_ok_to_heal function?'

Ea! says to Kaige, 'I dunno -- I can't keep track of alts.'

Ea! says, 'But, no, I don't think so.'

Ea! says, 'I've looked into it....'

Kaige says to Ea!, 'basically is_ok_to_heal had a = not a < '

Kaige nods solemnly.

Airieth looks up into the sky and ponders.

Ea! says, 'So, the general complaint is "I'm being told that I can't heal someone even though I accept everyone that they accept."'

Sandman says, 'sorta.. its my AA surgeon'

Sandman says, 'he couldnt heal another AA player as long as they had a timer'

Sandman says, 'both my surgeon and the AA player had no rejects also..'

Kaige says, 'now if it's who I'm thinking of, his clan has a reject all, but it's an RP clan so that shouldn't matter, right?'

Ea! says, 'About 80% of the time it ends up being related to clan acceptances -- either their clan is accepting someone who isn't accepted or your clan has a reject that you're not expecting.'

Ea! says, 'The other 20% of the time, I'm still not sure what's going on...'

Ea! says, 'So, here's what you can do to help:'

Sandman says, 'an rp clan would have a reject that would override it?'

Darla says, 'why would an rp clan bother to reject?'

Kaige says, 'I don't think it should, but that's the ONLY thing I can think of at the moment'

Ea! says, 'If your accept is more specific than their reject, it won't...'

Sandman says, 'mind if i check?'

Krynn says to Darla, 'cuz some of their clan members get excited and jump into pk'

Ea! says, 'Er, one more comment on the last one first:'

Ea! says, 'So, here's what you can do to help:'

Sandman says, 'yeah noticed the rp clan is rejecting all and a bit of others.. didnt know tho that rp clan accepts/rejects override.. thought only the pk ones did'

Ea! says, 'If this happens to you, get the following pieces of information: the pk status of the healer and the healee, both people's accept/reject lists, both clans accept/reject lists, and a log of what the healer sees when they try.'

Ea! says, 'Well, for rp clans, the accept/reject list depends on which is more specific....'

Ea! says, 'So if your clan rejects all and you accept ea!, you'll be able to fight Ea!.'

Ea! says, 'If your clan rejects all and you accept all, it'll allow you to fight...'

Sigrid says, 'hea;in be screwed anyway, just hand'em the poults'

Sandman says, 'but healing wise?'

Sandman says, 'cuz i could fight ppl.. i just couldnt heal them'

Ea! says to Sandman, 'Hm. Good question. Let me look at that.'

Sandman nods his agreement with Ea!.

Ea! says, 'Hm. The healing stuff makes sure that for every person in their and their clan list they accept, you can fight them... so the same thing applies.'

Krynn says, 'yeah, not being able to augment me kinda got me killed 3 times in SL'


Rooting Rate Increases Over Time?

Sigrid says, 'oy ok, I was jus wonderin why regen rate while rootin doesn't increase as it says in the helpfile'

Sigrid says, 'nthing?'

Sigrid says, 'or?'

Ea! says, 'Healing rate does increase while you're rooting.'

Sigrid says, 'no'

Sigrid says, 'I tested it'

Darla says, 'perhaps you just don't root very well?'

Sigrid snarls angrily.

Sigrid says, 'wellits didn't increase at all..'

Ea! says, 'Hm. The code implies.'

Ea! says, 'Er, hold up a sec...'

Sigrid says, 'well what I did was I sat down with lots of food and drink.. and started rooting, every 30 rl second I ate drank and reported, it was 12 hp and 9 mana regened every time'

Ea! says, 'Sat or rested?'

Sigrid says, 'rooted'

Sigrid says, 'yea resting'

Sigrid says, 'can ye root sittin?'

Kaige says, 'have to rest to root'

Ea! says, 'Just wanted to make sure we didn't accidentally change that with prone/kneeling.'

Sigrid says, 'aye'

Ea! says, 'How does the 12 hp compare to what you get when you're normally resting?'

Sigrid says, 'uh, that I didn't check actually'

Sigrid says, 'i could..'

Darla says, 'um, isn't that the point?'

Ea! says, 'I'm guessing that you'll find it is less than 12 hp.'

Darla says, 'you need a control!'

Darla whaps Sigrid across the back of the head - your ears ring in sympathy.

Sigrid says, 'yes, probably, but hey!'

Sigrid snarls angrily.

Ea! giggles.

Sigrid says, 'the helpfile says the longer you root the faster you regen'

Sandman says, 'i thought root was supposed to increase the regen the longer'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Sigrid says, 'aye, that's what me question was about'

Sigrid nods her agreement with Sandman.

Ea! says, 'Oh! I see.'

Darla says, 'ah, I see.'

Ea! says, 'Huh.'

Kaige says, 'it gives a faster regen rate for as long as you're rooting, it doesn't increase the rooting rate over time.'

Sandman would like to see that tho..

Ea! says, 'there, fixed.'

Darla says, 'what exactly does the helpfile say?'

Sandman says, 'that would be something.. also with meditate the longer you do that the better the regen'

Ea! says, 'Er, now it is fixed.'

Ea! says, 'Er, not quite.'

ArchAngel blinks at Ea!.

Sigrid says, 'the helpfile says 'You will accrue rooted regen rate as long as you remain rooted or until you reach the maximum rate. Within a preset limit, the longer you root the faster you will regain hp, mv, and ma.''

ArchAngel says to Ea!, 'wanna make up your mind?'

ArchAngel grins evilly.

Ea! says, 'Okay, better.'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.


New Char Ban On My ISP?

ArchAngel says, 'yesterday when i restarted this char i asked snapper to find a imm who could set my exp to 1.. well after that happened i found myself unable to recreate.. i'd like to know the imm who did that for me yesterday so i will no longer rely on them for that sort of thing'

ArchAngel flops about helplessly.

Kaige says, 'huh?'

Kaige is completely boggled.

Darla says, 'but you did recreate...'

ArchAngel says, 'i found when i went to recreate that my isp was banned from create new chars... i wanna know who set that!'

Kaige nods her agreement with Darla.

Sigrid says, 'perma the hard way, if some imm gets spammed who cares? just turn anndeath off so I dont get spammed, much safer than relying on imms not to screw up'

Sigrid grins evilly.

Kaige says, 'ahh, well those are two completely different things.'

LadyAce says, 'well, I'm not sure you can really blame the imm staff for your site being banned'

LadyAce says, 'you'd have your fellow dorm mates or friends or neighbors to blame for that, most likely'

Kaige says, 'and I was the one who set your xp to zero, so that's why I was so boggled by how that in itself would make it impossible to recreate'

ArchAngel says, 'noone else uses this computer for mudding!!!!'

Krynn says, 'computer is irrelevant, it's your subnet & ip range'

ArchAngel says, 'i want to know the imm who set a ban on my isp'

LadyAce says, 'You have the whole imm staff to blame, then'

Darla says, 'but why would he get banned between the time of perma and recreation?'

ArchAngel says to Krynn, 'theres noone else on this network'

Darla says, 'sounds very coincidental.'

Sigrid nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'the ban could've been put on ages ago'

LadyAce says, 'there could've been a newbieban on because of troubles, too'

ArchAngel says, 'i've made so many new chars'

Sandman nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'but it's not like somebody was out to get you...'

Sigrid blinks at LadyAce.

Sigrid says, 'really? yer not in general out to get us?'

ArchAngel says, 'listen i dont care i want to know why i was banned in the first place!'

Ea! says, 'When did you try to create the character again? What time yesterday?'

LadyAce says, 'the internet is a shared resource, and some people abuse it, and it's hard to control that'

Kaige says, 'there's no note beside the entry. So I'd have to dig MUCH deeper to find out why.'

LadyAce says, 'I'm saying it was not necessarily *you* who were banned'

ArchAngel says, 'yesterday about 9 pm eastern'

Ea! says to Kaige, 'Ah, okay, you found it.'

Ea! giggles.

Ea! hadn't gotten that far yet.

LadyAce says, 'it'd be the range of IP numbers you come in from that was banned'

ArchAngel says to LadyAce, 'i'm on a private network with a set ip address'

LadyAce says, 'sometimes we ban ranges, when people's IPs are changing around, for example. We wouldn't necessarily know all about your situation. It's easy enough to fix the trouble, if that's all it is.'

ArchAngel says, 'i've lost all faith in the imms'

Ea! says, 'afk 2-3.'

Sandman rolls his eyes heavenward.

Sigrid shakes her head.

Darla says, 'I guess he didn't get quite what he was after.'

Sandman says, 'i remember when i had to get ahold of ppl to find out why my site was banned.. its wasnt a big deal to me... i understand why you ban ranges etc'

Haley says, 'I just looked up what happened.'

Haley says, 'and basically, if someone in your household logs in a character, and starts fiddling around with it, possibly with you not even knowing, its still illegal'

Haley says, 'passwords need to be kept 100% confidential'

Asher nods solemnly.

Sandman nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'it's one reason we ask you to choose hard to guess passwords too'

Haley says, 'and its easy for a little brother and sister to log in and do "WRONG" stuff without knowing the rules'

Darla says, 'problem is, the more confidential I keep them, the more likely I'll forget!'

Haley giggles at Darla.

Sandman wouldnt want his bro to come on as him and get him in trouble or vice versa.. well when he decides to play which is barely.

Sigrid grins evilly at Darla.. wonder what she's thinking...

LadyAce says, 'or a rude friend, or SO who thinks it'll be funny :P'

Krynn nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Haley nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Haley says, 'yup'

LadyAce says, 'or a dad who wants you never to play again :P'

Haley says, 'everyone has friends come over etc etc.'

Haley says, 'and alot of times you'll see...'

Haley says, 'that for instance, I'll grab the players when I see multiplay etc, or other stuff, and they are so lost in the game they don't even talk back to me, because they don't know who I am nor do they really care and might not know how to use'

Haley says, 'say for istance :p'

Kaige says, 'but also being impatient with us when all the information of the universe isn't immediatly at our fingertips... well that's just not too cool either.'

Haley says to Kaige, 'Patience tends to be the key in alot of circumstances.'

Darla says, 'bah, it isn't like you're people. You're IMMS!'

Darla giggles.

Sandman snickers softly.

Kaige nods her agreement with Haley.

Sigrid says, 'patience be a bugger'

Sandman nods his agreement with Sigrid.

Haley says, 'I've had the real player come back to me and talk to me about what happened and we've been able to work things out and get things back to normal for them, but that takes patience and not being rude etc... we have reasons why we do everything'

Haley says, 'wow I stopped the conversation :p'

Sigrid says, 'aye'

Sandman peers around the room intently.

Sigrid says, 'we're still chweing on what you said'

Haley giggles.

Darla contentedly chews.


Healing before PK: Interference?

Sandman says, 'ok first let me say i mudmailed this to zandy'

Sandman says, 'let me lay down the situation then ask the question'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandman says, 'yes this may sound whiny or whatnot so dont mind it'

Sandman says, 'i log in to find, pker at the inn getting healed by.. non-pker surgeon'

Sandman isnt using names yet.

Sandman says, 'i look around read some boards.. about 7 operates go by'

Sandman says, 'the pker reports full the non-pker aids the pker.. then the pker attacks me'

Sandman says, 'now the question is.. isnt that illegal to get non-pk healing with intentions of pk? timer or no timer?'

Darla says, 'I don't see a problem with that.'

ArchAngel blinks.

Krynn says to Sandman, 'depends on motive'

Krynn says to Sandman, 'did the non-pker heal them knowing they were gonna pk?'

Sandman says, 'no'

Sandman says, 'the non pker had no clue'

Darla says, 'the pk'er may have been getting healed from mobkill damage, or a pk fight long past.'

Sandman says, 'and was very upset when pker attacked me'

Krynn says, 'then I can't see how they can be held accountable if they didn't know'

Sandman says, 'either way i believed that it was illegal to get non pk healing with intentions to pk'

Darla says, 'why does it matter who was the last to heal him when he attacked you?'

Sandman says, 'the matter is.. the pker i thought under rules.. is not allowed to get healed by a non pker with intentions of pking'

Sandman says, 'i could be wrong thats why im asking if its illegal or not =p'

Sandman says, 'im not holding the healer accountable.. its the pker that knows better'

Sigrid says, 'on the other hand, if the damage wasn't from pk, then why let him sit around for 10 minutes bored and then jump you?'

ArchAngel says, 'your not the only player who does that sorta thing though'

Sandman says, 'he was sitting around to get healed to attack me while i was reading board etc not thinking the pker would be that dorky to get healed by a non pker then attack me'

Sigrid says, 'i wonder if all the imms are sleeping or just not knowing the answer'

Krynn says, 'isn't this debate kinda irrelevant with the admins taking a non-interferance stance with pkok as it is?'

Sandman says to Krynn, 'sorta'

Darla says, 'Kaige is likely still afk'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we have a good answer for you there'

Sigrid nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'Zandy's the one to make the call'

Haley says, 'We have taken a stance of no interference as per the discussion post'

Krynn says, 'i had this conversation with zandy, there's too many variables to nail down with pkok for solid rules, it's gonna be done on a case by case basis'

LadyAce says, 'Kaige is the boss and all, but since you sent the note to Zandy, he'll respond or kick it over to Kaige'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Krynn.

Sandman nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'it's certainly bad form :)'

Sandman says, 'i was just curious if that rule was still in affect or if its out due to pkok etc'

Sandman flops about helplessly.

Sigrid says, 'so basicly what you're saying is, if you can do it under the current pkok system its alright?'

Sandman says, 'im not mad i dont mind.. the point im mad about is just the fact that the pker was doing some bad form =p'

Sandman says, 'also sorta used the non-pker which i dont like seeing'

Darla says, 'I just don't see, what is the difference between getting healed now or later?'

Sigrid says, 'liek having other people do preps and druidic services for you.. then enter combat? with our without them knowing of your intentions'

Sigrid pats Sandman on the head.

Sandman says, 'the diff is this'

Sandman says, 'if your not enabled.. and you prep heal a pker they go and fight.. its not fair that you did that and nobody can attack you'

Darla says, 'but healing isn't really preps. It is just getting you to your standard state, not beyond it.'

Sigrid says, 'you can give out auggies though'

Krynn looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'yeah i dont like that either..'

Krynn says, 'when y'all get around to me, got a pkok question that's becoming more relevant lately'

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'so cant really answer it?'

Sigrid says, 'yes, I gots some other questions as well..'

Sandman says, 'the basis ofcourse im trying to get at is.. in some cases the non-pker would be forced enabled due to the pker using them like that.. which makes me a bit mad =p'

Sigrid notes its hard to put sigrid english entirely away.


More on PKOK Interference & AA

Krynn says, 'player A tells friend (player B) that they're going to go kill player C. player B wants a piece of the action also and accepts and helps attack Player C. is that pk interference?'

Krynn says, 'i've noted certain players do it, and don't think its very fair to us that are always AA'

Sigrid nods her agreement with Krynn.

Sandman says, 'well the thing about that is if they accept you and attack its legal.. if they do something then accept you.. then thats a problem'

Darla says, 'did they do it ic or ooc?'

Sandman says to Krynn, 'for instance ill give you an example that i did myself as a mistake'

Krynn says, 'ahh, but they were informed of pk while not accepting that person, and that's the key'

Krynn says, 'ic or ooc is irrelevant'

LadyAce says, 'the main point is that with pkok, you should reject people who won't play fair.'

Sandman says, 'ooh your saying like player a tells b that they wanna pk so and so who is aa and player b goes ok ill help etc?'

Krynn says to Sandman, 'exactly'

Sigrid nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Darla says, 'well, wouldn't learning of a murder and doing something to help or hinder it be a big part of rp and pk coming together?'

Sandman says, 'yeah thats crappy but for what ive heard legal..'

Sandman spits on the ground.

Krynn says, 'okay, time to write a big fat list of rejections of specific players and all their alts'

Sigrid says, 'wolfing is always crappy no?'

Sandman says, 'well wolfing like that is waaaay bad form'

Darla says, 'I think you quibble too much.'

Sandman says, 'its like ok im aa.. i tell you sigrid lets go kill krynn since he is aa'

Sandman says, 'and you then accept him and we pack him'

Sigrid says, 'yes, but with pkok possible to do on layers who thinks they are better men by refusing to reject people'

Krynn says, 'then krynn's temper flares and starts making phone calls'

Sandman says, 'so krynn has a split second to go hmm someone just accepted me oh here they are with friends!'

Darla says, 'but doesn't krynn accept that risk when he chose to go aa?'

Sigrid nods solemnly.

Sandman nods solemnly.

Darla says, 'isn't it all just part of the big bad bloody world of pk?'

Sigrid says, 'besides i'd never slice krynnie'

Sigrid pats Krynn on the head.

Krynn snuggles up to Sigrid.

Sigrid pinches Krynn and you wonder what he will do back.

Sandman says, 'yeah thats the problem.. its not what we would like to call a noble risk =p'

Sigrid bats her eyelashes at Krynn.

Darla says, 'nasty brutish and short'

Kaige says, 'no one ever claimed AA was a "noble risk"'

Sandman says, 'we like risk.. we dont like all of a sudden ppl we dont know accepting us then doing nasty things before we can do something about it'

Kaige says, 'sorry about that... Child has eaten.'

LadyAce says, 'k, any other PKOK comments before we move on?'

Krynn nods his agreement with Sandman.

Krynn says, 'yeah, 1 more comment'

Kaige says to Sandman, 'then it sounds like AA isn't what you want.'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Krynn.

Krynn says, '"reject those that don't play fair" is the line we keep getting told, because that's the basis of PKOK'

Krynn says, 'what does that do to teach the person we rejected to play fair, and prevent them from doing it to someone else?'

AgentNitz cheers for the ability to taunt people behind the safety of pkok.

LadyAce says, 'I would recommend posting their name and foolish choices for all to see'

Krynn says, 'pkok is a hiding place, not a solution, but that's just my opinion'

AgentNitz grins evilly at Krynn.. wonder what he's thinking...

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'if people are organized about it, soon they're on the outside looking in'

LadyAce says, 'or if you are a GM, be proactive and reject those who your fellow GMs and clanmates know to be uncouth'

AgentNitz says, 'thing is, you're gonna have the stupid people messin w/ the pk system methinks'

Krynn says, 'then they make an alt, and do it again, possibly multi'ing & perma'ing me, or a clanmate'

Kaige says, 'or only left with people who are playing and accept the same thing'

Kaige says to Krynn, 'then maybe AA isn't what you want'

Sandman says, 'with an alt that nobody even has heard of no less...'

Krynn says to Kaige, 'maybe I should expect less from other pkillers'

Kaige says, 'if you want to be descriminating about who can type KILL ME, then AA isn't what you want'

AgentNitz says, 'what're we talkin bout? pkok?'

Sigrid nods solemnly.

Sandman says, 'we want the aa we dont want the problem of jerks coming back again and again with new alts for us to figure out.. because it may be too late before we do'

AgentNitz says, 'again? oi, take it back to the old pk system, so you don't got twits like me, messin w/ someone, rejecting them, then makin fun of em when they can't fight me :oP'

LadyAce says, 'well, presumably they only have 1 chance to be a jerk, after 50 levels'

Sigrid says, 'it is risky being aa, and jerk abuse you aa'ers but sure you have some fun too eh? so why not just ignore the deaths to jerk and enjoy your fun?'

Kaige says, 'then make two pk clans that accept each other and have at it. AA isn't going to accomplish that ever.'

AgentNitz says, 'cause you then perma :oP'

Sigrid says, 'right..'

AgentNitz sticks his tongue out at Sigrid. =P

Sigrid says, 'xp is sooo easy to get'

Sandman says, 'so have clans accept each other only.. we tried that.. coven still wont accept ppl =p'

AgentNitz says, 'not for people that're constantly bein killed :o)'

Darla lays down on the ground.

Kaige says, 'so don't PLAY with the COVEN.'

Sandman ducks to the ground.

Sandman says, 'what the sense of coven then? if they dont want to play with anyone? =p'

AgentNitz says, 'heck, solve all ur legend problems, don't play :oP'

AgentNitz sticks his tongue out at everyone! =P

Kaige says, 'and you'll notice3 I said TWO clans that accept each other.'

Krynn says, 'i'm funny like that, i can play under 2 extremes, absolute cruelty and uncompromising brutality (old pk), or absolute fairness (what pkok tries to accomplish)'

Sigrid nods her agreement with AgentNitz.

LadyAce says, 'at any rate, I think we've covered this one.'

Sandman says to Kaige, 'bah 2 clans?'

Sandman giggles.

Sandman says to Krynn, 'ok lets make 2 clans.. the mercs and the grendels.. thats the only 2 pk clans from now on =p'

Sandman winks suggestively at Krynn.

Kaige says to Sandman, 'at the minimum yes, otherwise it'd be pretty boring pretty fast'

Sandman says to Kaige, 'nod'


Update & Housing for Klein?

Sigrid says, 'how's housing in klein doing?'

LadyAce says, 'waiting on me to finish it, basically'

Sigrid says, 'ok'

LadyAce says 'with a connection at home again, I should be able to make more progress'

Sigrid says, 'that covers it i guess..'


Extra Weapon Attacks?

AgentNitz says, 'how are extra attacks figured?'

AgentNitz says, 'like, the immolate on the devil's trident'

AgentNitz says, 'or the firestrike on endbringer?'

LadyAce says, 'those aren't actually 'extra attacks''

AgentNitz says, 'those spells're mind based, aren't they?'

LadyAce says, 'they're spells on the weapons (sometimes called 'special')'

Kaige says, 'it's a chance on the weapon that it'll have that spell go off'

AgentNitz nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'they're self-contained within the weapon'

AgentNitz says, 'but how does the mud judge how strong they are?'

Kaige says, 'not mind related to the wielder at all'

AgentNitz says, 'is it just a set value?'

Kaige says, 'by what the builder tells it.'

AgentNitz says, 'so it's a value set by the builder then'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Sigrid says, 'the same with the hook or?'

Kaige says, 'or the code determines if it's a spell created weapon'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sigrid.

Ea! says, 'It also varries a bit from spell to spell... some spells ignore what the builder says, others don't... as appropriate.'

Sigrid swings leather and mithril battle gauntlets.

Sandman says, 'i would assume its a set level of cast and set damage and set chance to go off'

AgentNitz says, 'okies'

AgentNitz says, 'that's what i figured, just was curious, same thing w/ the blast attack on the fork tongued and what not, right?'

AgentNitz says, 'same principle that is?'

AgentNitz says, 'or is that somethin different?'

Kaige says, 'yup. all those are done the same way'

AgentNitz says, 'okies'

AgentNitz beams delightedly.

AgentNitz says, 'cool! my curiousity's been satisfied'

AgentNitz waves happily.


Update on Inferno?

Sandman says, 'inferno!?'

Sandman peers around the room intently.

Sandman says, 'how soon can we expect to hear more or see it?'

Sandman peers around the room intently.

LadyAce says, 'we don't have a timeframe'

Sandman says, 'doh!'

Darla waves happily.

Sandman says, 'summer summer!!'

Sandman says, 'must have it by summer!'

Kaige says, 'kae's been working on it, but has also been having some rl issues.'

Sandman nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

Sandman goes EEK! in distress.

Kaige doubts you will.

Sandman says, 'aaww poor kae'

Kaige says, 'but hopefully we'll have other stuff for summer.'

Kaige says, 'maybe not a whole new area, but new stuff to do at least.'

Sigrid says, 'imms should stay away from rl and concentrate on taking care of our interests'

Kaige giggles at Sigrid.

Sigrid snarls at herself.

LadyAce giggles at Sigrid.

Huginn laughs at Sigrid.

Ea! says to Sigrid, 'The people who pay my paycheck might not appreciate that....'

Sigrid says to Ea!, 'point them out an let me slice em'

Huginn says to Ea!, 'sigrid just volunteered to pay our paycheck I think'

Ea! cheers for Sigrid - huzzah!

Ea! thanks Sigrid heartily.

Sigrid snarls angrily.

Sigrid says, 'oy?'


Recall Tag Fixed?

Sandman says, 'recalltag fixed?'

Sandman peers around the room intently.

Sandman says, 'didnt know it was in problems til i heard the other day something had been wrong with recalltag'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandman says, 'i could be wrong? just not running it too much?'

Sandman peers around the room intently.

Kaige says, 'I don't think the whole long list of issues from Jan and Feb have been addressed yet. But I don't know more about it than that.'

Sandman raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Kaige says, 'and I don't know how "game breaking" those issues are without reading each one at the moment'

Kaige is looking at the bug list for it.

Sandman says, 'it has issues?'

LadyAce says, 'well, I found it to, yes :)'

Sandman says, 'aah'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think Sandra has tracked them all down yet.'

Kaige says, 'just stuff that LA noted back in Jan and Feb when she ran it'

Sandman says, 'well run more limerick things i loooove improv stuffs!'

Sandman nods to himself - he must be getting senile.

LadyAce says, 'you missed some of it, too, yes?'

Sandman says, 'yeah i did'

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandman says, 'i came in like late'

Sandman says to Krynn, 'i had sleezers'


Skilltools: Boost vs Grant

Sigrid says, 'aye, its about those baths in some houses that you can use to meditate.. whats the point of them if you can't use them without the skill?'

Krynn says to Sandman, 'oh, and I don't do clan accepts anymore, only my AA's that want to fight are required'

Kaige says to Sigrid, 'player housing?'

Sigrid says, 'yes'

LadyAce says, 'they look neato'

Sigrid says, 'hrm, yes, but whats the point of making a meditate tool if its not a tool?'

Kaige says, 'well tools have two options... to boost an existing skill or grant a skill'

Kaige says, 'those seem to be the former'

LadyAce says, 'awfully powerful to give a skill, so that's done rarely'

Sigrid says, 'and btw i want meditate back for dumb druids and bugger mages who cant spam nomore can go somewhere far away for all i care.. but that shouldn't be new..'

Huginn hears about things first at QAs

Sigrid says, 'oh, so you're saying its boosting.. nice'

Sigrid says, 'ok, thats it'

LadyAce needs to leave now

LadyAce says, 'see you guys later :)'

Sigrid peers at herself myopically.

Sandman waves happily.

Update for SL/PD/Charmy Armies?

Sandman says, 'oh oh is there any look into making SL harder?'

Sandman says, 'as in harder so creates cant solo it with ease of sorts'

Sigrid says, 'hey, why does everything have to be harder? I can't outtank barney anylonger, thats irritating!'

Sandman doesnt like the fact of creates solo'n sl

Sandman says to Sigrid, 'oh i know! barney is meaaaaaan!'

Kaige says, 'drop a note to Rufus/Sandra would be the best thing on that front'

Ea! says, 'I think some sort of code to make it harder to have abusrdly large charmy armies is more likely... but I'm not sure.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Ea!.

Sandman says, 'well its still possible to use the shroud for 2 greaters too'

Sandman spits on the ground.

Sandman spits on the ground.

Sigrid says, 'absurdly large?'

Sandman says, '2 greater summons.. 4 elemental greaters.. and a doppel.. not to mention homies'

Sandman says, 'thats nutty'

Sandman says, 'although i can see cause with lots of charmies.. due to them having to kill for their charms'

Sigrid says, 'creates create charmies though, thats what they do'

Sandman nods his agreement with Sigrid.

Sandman says to Sigrid, 'sometimes tho those charmies kick some serious booty'

Sigrid nods her agreement with Sandman.

Sandman says, 'i lost 100 hps a round vs krynns charmies one day'

Sandman says, 'it was naaaaasty'

Sandman says, 'they did a special all of em a round and i was like eep!'

Sigrid says, 'without doubt'

Sandman says, 'i love create charmies now.. but i also dont like them..'

Sandman says, 'i know that sounds strange..'

Sigrid says, 'still i think let people solo sl if they wish, i thinks soloing is boring'

Sandman says, 'i like em because they are good now.. i also dislike them because sometimes they are too good'

Sandman nods his agreement with Sigrid.

Sigrid says to Sandman, 'usually if you're not on the creates side you dislike them?'

Sandman says, 'yeah but being able to solo an area like that was not the area's intention =p'

Krynn says, 'ooh, i'll comment here'

Sandman says to Sigrid, 'nah i have a create i like him but i dont like him'

Sigrid says to Sandman, 'me to actually'

Krynn says, 'y'all act like a con create can solo SL in an hour and run off laughing'

Sandman says, 'i like him because finally his charmies are a lot better and can do good'

Krynn says, 'it takes 8 hours to do it solo'

Sigrid says to Sandman, 'but thats the rp, not the charmies I dislike'

Sandman says, 'i also dislike him for the same reasons tho =p'

Sigrid says, 'him for'

Krynn says, '8 hours of not getting up except for drinks & bathroom breaks'

Sandman says to Krynn, 'yeah i know how long it takes =p'

Krynn says, 'it's completely not worth the xp for the time it takes'

Sandman says, 'still tho i rather like to have and always remember SL and big areas like that for group running'

Krynn says, 'then go run AT =P'

Sigrid says, 'nspd though.. its good xp.. if anyhting shoudl be made harder to solo thats it'

Krynn says, 'or PD'

Sandman says, 'i dont mind its solo'd =p i just have that thought of when i hear sl now is that oh.. well a create can solo it.. so why get a group =p'

Krynn says, 'i see groups forming for it all the time'

Krynn shrugs helplessly.

Sigrid says to Sandman, 'its more fun in a group'

Sandman nods his agreement with Krynn.

Ea! says, 'Rufus mentioned to me that he was thinking about ways to make PD harder.'

Sandman says, 'aye'

Sandman says to Ea!, 'southside is evil =p'

Ea! says, 'Not sure if it was all of it or just parts, though.'

Ea! says, 'Though one or two of the ideas he mentioned were really, really mean.'

Sandman goes EEK! in distress.

Sigrid says, 'sounds likely'

Krynn says, 'southside isn't that bad, kidna easy with preperations and a competant group. westside bothers me cuz of the slay rooms =P'

Sandman says, 'reminds me of what bart is doing for sewers expansion in paris'

Sandman says, 'ive heard horror stories already of rumors of how hard his expansion is gunna be'

Sandman waves happily.

Ea! says, 'Okay, I gotta dash, too.'

Ea! waves happily.

Sigrid peers around the room intently.

Kaige waves happily.
