Can You Engrave Strung Items?

Menion says, 'ok i was wondering can you get strings engraved?'

LadyAce looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'did you try it?'

Menion says, 'no'

Zeirath says, 'hrmm yeah I have been wondering that too'

Zeirath says, 'wasnt sure if it would take the string off the item or not'

Menion smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'I should test it :) then we'll know.'

Menion smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'I would think that it'd work, but maybe I told it not to...:)'

LadyAce will look it up, and let's go on to the next question meanwhile?

Kaige says, 'looks like it should work. it copies the existing desc and I didn't see a check for strings'

Menion nods solemnly.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce thought that'd be the case.

Menion nods solemnly.

Menion says, 'so the engraving a string would work?'

Kaige nods her agreement with Menion.

Menion says, 'ok'


HP Regen, Spirit/Perc & Fighters?

Nina says, 'just wondering if there's any thoughts of bringing in a warrior equivalent of root/meditate?'

Nina says, 'to regen hps a little faster..'

Ea! says, 'No plans.'

Nina says, 'might give warriors a reason to actually keep some spirit or something'

Kaige says, 'isn't that what healer types are for?'

Nina says to Kaige, 'sure'

Kaige says, 'not spirit, but regenning hp faster.'

LadyAce says, 'we do have some amount of self-healing methods besides skills'

LadyAce says, 'so you could stock up those'

Ea! says, 'The fix to spirit, whatever it ends up being, will necessarily be something that punished people who have really low spirit, not something that gives a bonus to people with high spirit.'

Zeirath says, 'like how I have 15 spirit?'

Menion laughs.

Nina says, 'sure.. but at the moment it's a bit hard to see spirit relating to warrior skills'

Menion nods solemnly.

Nina says to Zeirath, 'plenty of people have negative spirit'

Kaige says, 'I know a couple characters that are effectively negative.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Nina.

Menion says, 'because no warrior really uses spirit'

Sproket says, 'my str fighters -7 =P'

Nina says, 'was just thinking a root like skill that requitred 20 or 25 spr and some con might balance it out a lot'

Menion says, 'i have 32 :)'

Nina says, 'why we're on the subject of spirit, are words going to be fixed so you can't have negative spirit and words?'

Nina says, 'while even'

Nina peers at herself myopically.

LadyAce says, 'I'm not sure what you mean?'

Nina says, 'er, well.. some words have no spirit requirement'

Sproket says, 'she saying you can still have words with negative spirit'

Nina says, 'so you can be a mage with negative spirit'

Sproket says, 'uhh, not quite'

Nina says, 'which seems a bit.. boggling'

Nina says, 'not a full mage'

Sproket says, 'you can cast a spell, maybe 2'

Nina says to Sproket, 'a fair number more than that'

Fiammetta says, 'a very handicapped mage...but still can cast 4-5 spells'

Fayline says to Sproket, 'you can cast quite a few essential ones'

Menion says, 'might take ya a long time though'

LadyAce says, 'It does seem like they should, but I don't think it's been discussed as an item to change'

Fiammetta nods her agreement with Fayline.

LadyAce says, 'put it in on idea :)'

Ea! says, 'I think that we'd like to add a bunch of minimum reqs to prevent that. I think we have held off given the reimb issues, mostly...'

Nina nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Ea! brutally slays the lagmonster.

Nina says, 'or a spr requirement on chant instead of the words?'

Nina grins evilly.

Sproket says to Fayline, 'um, all the ones that make being a mage worth being a mage, you can't cast w/o spr'

Fayline shakes her head in disagreement with Sproket.

Sproket says to Fayline, 'enlighten me, what spells can you cast then?'

Nina says to Sproket, 'i think you'd be suprised'

Nina says, 'nice lag there'

Sproket says to Nina, 'no, i wouldn't'

Fayline says, 'gotta open my file now'

Nina comforts Fayline.

Fiammetta says, '2 worthy spells only really'

Fayline says, 'ah wait, I only have a list with no perc'

Fayline shrugs helplessly.

Nina grins evilly at Fayline.. wonder what she's thinking...

Fayline coughs loudly.

Nina says, 'that's another issue too'

Sproket says, 'and you gatta waste a bunch of pracs, and waste the stat points to have the mind'

Nina says, 'as a pkiller, it means you're not stunbait'

LadyAce says, 'well, I think the answer is: someday, that kinda thing is worth evening out, yes.'

Fiammetta says, 'if you really thinking about to implement a min req for warriors or pure snipers..wouldn't that make it very unblanced in pkill..i already kill all of them'

Fiammetta says, 'but give them also a spirit req..is gonna be really bad!'

Ea! says, 'depends on what other changes we make at the same time.'

Ea! shrugs philosophically.

Fiammetta says, 'exactly'

Fiammetta says, 'so thinking about some other changes with that'

Sproket says to Fiammetta, 'why, you don't like being able to beat up on people? =P'

Fiammetta says, 'that was my quetion :)'

Fiammetta giggles.

Fiammetta says to Sproket, 'well no if it too easy'

Fiammetta smiles happily.

Fayline grumbles.

LadyAce says to Fiammetta, 'I'm confused, did we cover your question, or were you just making a comment?'

Fiammetta says, 'i think Ea answerd it...'

LadyAce says, 'excellent'


Plus Hit and Bless Bug?

Fayline says, 'okay.. what is the deal with not gaining full +hit from a bless spell? it seems to only involve the silver medallion'

LadyAce'splained this earlier but only confused her, someone else want to try? :)

Kaige says to Ea!, 'you got it? I'm not sure I could explain it clearly either.'

LadyAce says to Fayline, 'help hitroll also talks about it, if that helps.'

LadyAce says, 'explaining how hitroll works, particularly for low stat people'

LadyAce says, 'my understanding of it is that there are two things at work: caps and scoping'

Fayline says, 'I am fairly high stat though, so I didn't see that problem'

LadyAce says, 'the caps limit how much +hit you can get from varioius sources of +hit'

LadyAce says, 'and the scoping is that low stat people don't get the full benefit of +hit stuff'

LadyAce says, 'or at least, I think that's how it went in.'

LadyAce says, 'so essentially, just doing addition, it'll never add up :) because it takes other stuff into account'

Fayline looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'they're actually a percentage bonus... so 15% of 20 is still smaller than 15% of 40'

Fayline says to LadyAce, 'because my stat eq doesn't go over 27'

Fayline says to LadyAce, 'and I have pretty high dex.. it's not like I'm going all hit and no dex'

Fayline says to LadyAce, 'so I don't see why it's limiting me still'

LadyAce says, 'ah, help bless hasn't been updated to talk about the % thing.'

Kaige says, 'I'm not sure where natural hitroll from dex falls in that caps either.'

LadyAce says, 'neither has strength spell'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'but I suspect it's in that first 27'

Kaige says, 'I don't know for sure tho'

Fayline raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Fayline says, 'well with 85 dex and under 27 hit from eq why would I be getting capped with bless?'

Fayline raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Kaige says, 'without digging into my elbows into the code and sitting down with exactly what items and all you have, I don't know the answer'

LadyAce says, 'bless is a % thing not a number thing'

LadyAce says, '% of your hitroll, not a +X amount'

LadyAce says, 'so it's capped by how much you already have'

Sproket says to Fayline, 'the help file hasn't been updated'

Fayline says to LadyAce, 'bless has always given 5, or was that changed just recently?'

Sproket says to Fayline, 'help file says its +5 to hit'

LadyAce says, 'it was changed perhaps a year ago'

Sproket says to Fayline, 'its now + a %, too many hit roll mosters'

LadyAce says, 'to give a % not a standard +'

LadyAce says to Fayline, 'catch Ea when he's back in window :)'


Tokens for Each Installement?

Menion says, 'ok for LT when you put in an article and it lasts for more then one issue of LT do you get token for each article or just for whole thing?'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Menion.

Kaige nods her agreement with Menion.

LadyAce told Menion to ask you, Kaige :) so that's why he's here.

Menion nods solemnly.

Menion smiles happily.

Kaige says to Menion, 'yes, you get a token for each installment'

Menion says, 'cool gonna have to start one :)'


Mobs and Ordering Wary/Agg?

Madrita says, 'My question: When I create a doppel and I want to make her fully agg, I always type a "doppel command", in other words, first agg her, then have her jump or whatever... Hoewever, I always have to do this like 30 times before she actua'

Madrita says, 'And it doesn't matter if I just created her, or if it has been a while... Is there some sort of "skill lag" on orders to doppels or something??'

LadyAce says to Madrita, 'mobs take a certain amount of time before they're "listening" again. If you spam things in, they won't catch all of them.'

Madrita says, 'I understand that now..BUT'

LadyAce says to Madrita, 'putting a slight pause in will be helpful :)'

Madrita says, 'shouldnt the doppel go to one right away, since that is the first thing I tell them?'

Sproket says, 'it does go one agg'

Kaige says, 'and yes.. there is a wait associated for mobs and wary/agg just like for players'

Sproket says, 'but then, theres a lag, and they don't queue orders'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Sproket.


Area for PK Tourney?

Sproket says to LadyAce, 'what area is the pk tounrey being held in?'

LadyAce says, 'I haven't decided....it'll be mobless, bring everything you want to have, with you.'

Sproket says to LadyAce, 'can you make SURE some of it is outside?'

LadyAce says, 'sure, that's fair.'

Sproket says, 'cuz the last tourney i went to was in some arena with no out door rooms =P'

Sproket says, 'so my char couldn't make half the army or use his descent damage spell =P'

Sproket thanks LadyAce heartily.

Sproket says, 'alll i needed to know =)'

LadyAce will add that to the welcome post.

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Sproket waves happily.

LadyAce says, 'is a good point, thank you for your patience.'


What Can You Get Engraved?

Menion says, 'again on engraving'

Menion says, 'for engraving can you have like one you make up or do they have a list you can only choose from?'

LadyAce says, 'what did the mob say when you talked to him?'

Menion says, 'haven't talked to him yet'

LadyAce says, 'you should.'

Menion nods solemnly.

LadyAce won't give you game info :)

Menion laughs.

Menion nods solemnly.


Custom Room Titles/Rooms for Housing?

Azeem says, 'what is the problem with changing roomtitles in houses.. like our new clan needs a resturant.. but it seems to me like this is imposible?'

LadyAce says, 'you can add your name to a room that is in the game, but you can't invent a room from scratch'

Azeem says, 'yea.. but why not ?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think there are any areas with restaurant/cafe housing, but you could suggest it. Maybe use a Kitchen in the meanwhile.'

Kaige says, 'you can drop a note to the imm responsible for the area (see areainfo for who) and make a suggestion for what you want.'

LadyAce says, 'we don't allow it because we want to maintain the integrity of the housing -- we want it to fit into the game.'

Kaige says, 'since I know you guys were talking about setting up a rival pizza parlor in pittsburgh'

LadyAce says, 'but if you find a place that it'd fit into the area well, you can suggest it to the builder and see what they think'

LadyAce says, 'the only housing suggestion I ever got, I put in, I think :)'

Azeem says, 'yea okay....'

Lilian says, 'a new pizza parlor would be great - I keep getting ripped off at the existing one'

Lilian giggles.

Straussy says, 'excuse me'

Kaige chuckles politely at Lilian's feeble witticism.

Sandra says, 'are you getting ripped off, or are you not paying attention when he puts it on the counter?'

Lilian says, 'am paying attention, but I never seem to be able to get it off the counter!'

Lilian is blonde at the moment.


Discussion on Cheat Pages/Bots

Hrun says, 'i got a question, howsabout we hire a hacker to take down legenddb?'

Hrun ducks to the ground.

Cipherz says, 'one comment from me it's called a cracker'

Ea! says to Hrun, 'I know enough people who'd do it for free if we wanted to, but I have a sense of ethics.'

Hrun says, 'sorry cracker :P'

ArchAngel says to Ea!, 'who cares about ethics we just need to take it down for a week and watch the mud become more self proficient and nicer :P'

Kaige says, 'can you imagine if both it and marauder were offline the same time?'

Azeem gasps at Kaige.

Straussy says, 'people would have to adventure and explore on their... on their own?'

Straussy cringes in terror.

ArchAngel says, 'if it and mara were down the mud would start relying on themselves and become closer'

Azeem says, 'or bug the other people on the mud'

Kaige points at Azeem.

Kaige says, 'that's my bet'

Hrun laughs.

Straussy says, 'i think the mud pop is closer as it is'

ArchAngel laughs.

Kaige says, 'more whining and complaining about why we'd taken them out'

Azeem smiles happily.

ArchAngel says, 'who says "you" took them down just say its an unknown source'

LadyAce says, 'we get accused of it everytime he has modem trouble...:P'

Straussy says, 'until the webmaster does an ip check and so forth'

Kaige says to ArchAngel, 'We ALWAYS get some complaint about why did we take the Marauder mob out of resets when he doesn't log in'

Hrun chortles with amusement.

ArchAngel says, 'for example get the legendb to take it down for one week and ask mara to not get on for a week'

ArchAngel says, 'so ignore the people or put a post up that makes it clearly said that mara and legendb is not supported by the mud'

Hrun says, 'i dunno bout takin marauder off, legenddb is my main problem atm'

LadyAce says, 'we do have that sort of thing around. Maybe you should start a player petition :)'

Azeem says, 'is marauder archived or something ?'

Azeem says, 'havent seen him in a while'

ArchAngel says, 'I know you say that already but not enough people see it'

ArchAngel says, 'he has connection problems thank god'

LadyAce says, 'try a petition, see if other players feel the same.'

Straussy says, 'theres not much we can really do about marauder or the site, it will always come down to the player asking for directions or daring to go east'

ArchAngel says, 'only problem is its a week'

Maleficia says, 'whats your problem with Marauder offering to perform services some of us other create mages dont want to be pestered for constantly?'

ArchAngel says, 'hmmm petition might be a good idea...'

ArchAngel says, 'whats the problem? people look short instead of asking for help or something'

Azeem says, 'actualy.. i think that people without create skills should stay away from timed items..'

Maleficia says, 'all im going to say is this, if Marauder was gone long term you people that advocate removing him are going to realise that like it or not he was incredibly useful to you and everyone else'

Greshym nods his agreement with Azeem.

Maleficia says, 'and if he ever DOES leave i will bot one of my creates 90% of my mudtime to cover it'

Ea! says to Maleficia, 'Just as a note -- I never use Marauder, and I now have a couple of characters I don't play because they can't offer the services he does since people just go to him.'


Configs for Pre/Post-Title Use?

Maleficia says, 'ok my question was easy, will there ever be a config to turn on or off pretitle and post title?'

Maleficia says, 'reduce spam, customise your char..'

LadyAce says, 'that sounds like a feature request :)'

LadyAce says, 'I'm not sure we'd put it in, but it's doable.'

Maleficia says, 'i think i idea'd config for post title, but pretitle makes sense too'

Maleficia says, 'because yknow certain scientists arent really assassins and theres not exactly vast choice for posts :p'

LadyAce thinks, if you don't want to be known as an assassin or a princess, don't go signing up for the job.

Maleficia says, 'i wasnt aware it was going to set it or i wouldnt have :p'

Ea! says, 'I wouldn't expect titles to be configurable. We like the atmosphere it creates.'

Maleficia says, 'ok then if thats yer official word on that then add more choice to them!'

Sandra says to Maleficia, 'we're working on it. Tho it's going kinda slowly'

Maleficia says, 'i need a Sefton Asylum in Port of London where i can be committed and get post , the insane'

Maleficia nods to herself.


Marauder used for Pkill Interference?

Azeem says, 'if you use marauder as a mana tank in pk... then is it your own problem that he is interfering with pk.. or is it him who is interfering ??'

LadyAce says, 'players are responsible for their own triggers'

Greshym says to Azeem, 'marauder pk interferes all the time'

Greshym says to Azeem, 'I've seen a dozen of people use him for fly,orbs or mana for pkill purposes'

Greshym says to LadyAce, 'should I turn him in if people use him when fighting me or should I turn the people in ?'

LadyAce says, 'if people complain, we'll pursue the complaints.'

Greshym nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'from past rulings, I'd say you have a better bet with mid-fight prep complaints than pre-fight'

Greshym nods his agreement with LadyAce.

ArchAngel says, 'how many people would it take to get a petition to shut mara and legendb down anyways?'

Wixen glares at nothing in particular.

Hrun says, 'or just ldb :P'

ArchAngel beams delightedly.

Kaige says, 'you'd do better to ask the people that control them'

ArchAngel says, 'or both for one week'

LadyAce says, 'the players behind those services are not bad people. but they and we disagree about what best serves the mud'

Greshym shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'if they agreed that their services are not what the mud wants/needs, I imagine they'd stop spending the effort.'

ArchAngel says, 'I wanna try to get them shut down for one week and see how chaotic the mud is the first day and see how much better it gets as the week progresses'

Greshym says to LadyAce, 'or if everybody agreed and stopped using them'

Wixen sighs loudly.

Hrun nods his agreement with Greshym.

Greshym says, 'then they would stop naturally'

ArchAngel says, 'as long as we get newbies who wants the services they'll be used'

Wixen says, 'you people disapoint me. i'm gonna log off before i get myself deleted'

Hrun blinks.

ArchAngel raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Hrun says, 'righto'


Christmas String Game?

Trousers says, 'is there gonna be any sort of christmas-string game this year'

LadyAce says to Trousers, 'People often give christmas gifts, but unless something is on events, I wouldn't expect a formal event'

Trousers nods solemnly.

Trousers says, 'okie'

Trousers nods solemnly.


Channel Toggles When Limited?

ArchAngel says, 'why cant you just turn the channels on and off?'

ArchAngel says, 'while channel banned...'

LadyAce says, 'while limited, you mean?'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'the idea is to remove you from being able to use the feature,'

Sandra says, 'personally, I think you should be forced to keep them on to watch what you're missing. But I keep getting outvoted and we have the choice'

ArchAngel says, 'so whats the point in having them one or the other? I got the chance to turn my off to reduce friction in me but still'

LadyAce thinks you should be forced to have 'em off so you can't even seem to participate by using tells or somethin.

LadyAce says, 'it's a policy matter that's a bit up in the air and therefore doesn't have any code enforcement lined up right now, that's all.'

Sandra says, 'well, we could make tells part of the limit!'

ArchAngel says, 'I think it would be a nice feature to allow the ability for both worlds in truth'

Sandra throws her head back and cackles gleefully!

Ea! says, 'I don't care, I just want the rest of the imms to agree such that some code can be written.'

LadyAce says, 'we'd rather make it as much of a penalty as we can, not build in flexibility for you'

ArchAngel says, 'heres a small idea I can suggest..'

LadyAce thinks it's everyone vs Sandra :)

LadyAce winks suggestively at Sandra.

Sandra giggles.

Kaige says, 'nuh-uh'

Kaige thinks they should stay the way you left 'em. you lose the priviledge to the command.. not the "channels"

ArchAngel says, 'allow the channels to be either on or off and if trouble still continues with the player put a lock on them to be off'

LadyAce says, 'I'd rather see us minimize the involvement we have with people who can't follow the rules.'

LadyAce says, 'they waste our time and distract from the improvement of the mud'

Luke says, 'what wastes time?'

Luke says, 'i wanna know'

LadyAce says, 'dealing with people who don't follow the rules.'

Luke says, 'ahh'

Bart says, 'dealing with infringements is not a "fun" part of what we do'

Luke says, 'sounds horrible to me :P'

Bart says, 'contrary to some popular beliefs, we don't get a kick out of having to jump on people'

LadyAce says, 'we'd rather people followed the rules, that's why they're rules...because that's what we want people to do :P'


Mobs Fleeing But Not Seeing It?

Lorenzo says, 'I bugged something this week about mobs fleeing... is that a real bug, or am I confoosed again?'

Lorenzo says, 'maybe it's the weather again'

LadyAce didn't see the bug.

Lorenzo says, 'It was that whlie fighting a mob, it panics and attempts to flee -- then I see nothing at all happen, but the mob has fled.'

Lorenzo says, 'it's just a touch odd that I can see it attempt to flee, but not see it flee.'

Luke says, 'does the mob have sneak maybe?'

Lorenzo says, 'otherwise I'd think it was surely something else'

Lorenzo says, 'but as is, I'm uncertain'

LadyAce says to Lorenzo, 'No idea....if it's not sneak, I can't think what it'd be'

Lorenzo nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'panicking and attempting to flee is more like a social'

Lorenzo says to LadyAce, 'I'm getting this on mobs that never used to have sneak, anyway'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'well, somebody will look at the bug :) no idea beyond that.'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with LadyAce.


More on Post-titles

Herbert says, 'ok we cant turn these things off right.. this is kinda a runon question but this is it..'

Herbert says, 'post titles stack right?'

LadyAce says, 'nope'

Herbert says, 'like when i went warg and unwarged i was still an assassin'

Herbert says, 'so it kept the assassin someplace..'

Herbert says, 'do we get a config for choosing which one we use? if we have multiple quests with posts?'

LadyAce says, 'if you get one that's later in the area listing, it'll overwrite the previoius ones.'

LadyAce says, 'nope, no configs.'

Herbert says, 'ok so im screwed then by that theory'

Herbert says, 'because im done 99% of quests my char is capable of doing..'

LadyAce has already been through it with Sandra on this one :)

Luke says to Herbert, 'you don't like being an assasin?'

Herbert says, 'so i cant ever overwrite it with anything but a completely new quest'

LadyAce says, 'I think it's the only post title in the game, really :) wait for like, one to go in in industrial'

Herbert says to Luke, 'i dont dislike it i passionately loathe it'

Luke frowns.

Luke says to Herbert, 'not good'

LadyAce says, 'no, if someone puts a post title into an existing quest, that could over write it too.'

LadyAce says, 'well, you're darn welcome :P'

LadyAce shrugs in response to Herbert's words.

Herbert says, 'could... but how would I choose to?'

Herbert says to LadyAce, 'its not that i dont like the idea, its that it doesnt suit me at all'

LadyAce says, 'it'll over write it if the area is after crusades in the area list.'

Herbert says, 'and i have no option to remove it'

Herbert says, 'if i could walk up to the GMA and say screw you AND yer guild and have it gone i would, right this second'

Herbert giggles.

LadyAce says, 'I suppose I could put in a quest for purification, but then you might be able to re-do the GMA quest. though maybe that wouldn't be bad :P'

Herbert says, 'well its not like ya get much for it anyway, short of a whois and a post'

Herbert says, 'like re-doing it wouldnt benefit ya much'

Luke says, 'can you ritter again after you unritter?'

Herbert says, 'i will crawl on my hands and knees, die, suffer massive xp loss, get multid to perma warnings, right here right now if i can get rid of it'

Herbert snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'well, I'll think about some way for people to remove it. There's gratitude for you :P'

Luke says, 'if not, then maybe you could use that as a model to create the un-assassin quest'

Herbert says to LadyAce, 'no ya get me wrong, i LOVE posttitles just not this one...'

LadyAce says to Luke, 'well, it wouldn't be all that helpful to me :) even if it existed.'

LadyAce shrugs in response to Herbert's words.

Herbert says, 'gimme the snob, the insane, the chemist, the foul, the mean.. and id be away laughin'

LadyAce says, 'It's just one of those things, I know, I know :) I work and slave over a hot stove trying to give people something fun as a bonus, and I get flak for it :P'

Herbert bursts into tears.

LadyAce says, 'reality of being an imm, thankyouverymuch, next question? :P'

Herbert says, 'its not flak! its me being upset that my very stylised character is boned!'

Herbert stifles a laugh as he regards the situation at hand.

Bart grins evilly at LadyAce.. wonder what he's thinking...

Herbert says, 'i mean look at me, carefully chosen strings, full desc, pretitle, 1116 hours of work, and now i gotta be an assassin?'

Herbert says, 'curiosity over a quest really bit me in the ass yknow?'

Lorenzo says to Herbert, 'but you *are* an assassin.'

Herbert says, 'im no assassin im a tired old school marm these days'

Lorenzo says to Herbert, 'oh, so you didn't assassinate someone?'

Lorenzo giggles.

LadyAce says, 'I guess we could make it so that you can change from ", the assassin" to ", the panty-waist priest"'

Herbert says, 'YES!'

LadyAce looks up into the sky and ponders.

Luke says, 'maybe he said he was sorry'

Herbert says, 'gimme that!'

Herbert says, 'id rather that..'

LadyAce laughs.

LadyAce says, 'you tempt me.'

Herbert says, 'on the upside i wear my desc a lot now..'

Herbert says, 'but seriously i DO like post titles very much, just need about 100 more of em to choose from, and if i was playing like Dwight or errr Xylander id love the assassin one too'

Herbert hugs LadyAce.

Herbert says to LadyAce, 'i still wuv you and i appreciate the fact that the quest works after all mine and quimbys whining for months'

Herbert says, 'so all y'all builders who want a minion to help add posts come talk to me id be eager to help'

Herbert throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

Herbert disappears in a shadowy sneaky violent backstabbing poof of assassininess!

LadyAce says, 'okie, I guess we're done then :)'

LadyAce says, 'thanks for coming!'

LadyAce gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Kaige waves happily.

LadyAce waves happily.

Sandra smiles happily.

Sandra waves happily.

Bart gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Kaige waves happily.


Additional Topics Answered

This section is intended to address some of the things that come up repeatedly and also provide a place where players can submit questions via the feedback channel (Q&A) so questions can be logged when they're thought of and the answers reported back here.

Also, some of the builders will often have some feedback on suggestions and typos that get reported with some of their reasoning for why things are the way they are or won't be incorporated into the areas.


General Suggestions/Questions

o Use redeem points for special things like buying a single spell that the character can cast (like casting 'dream sending')
Redeem points will likely never be given for things that directly provide an in-game advantage. The idea behind having a set number of practice points is to encourage specialization among characters and make it more difficult for any single character to be a master of all trades. Providing more through redeems, removes the distinctions between characters in the long run. Along with that idea of specialization among characters, we try to limit the overlap between professions as much as we can so that non-mages who wish to have mage skills performed need to find a mage to do it and can't just do it themselves.
o There should be a list that you could add people to, it would alert you when they log in. The characters on your list will have to give permission to the player via some command to be added onto their list.
We don't have a list of who has logged onto the game to alert you because we don't want such a thing as many people consider it an invasion of their privacy. Also, by requiring people to accept being on the list and having a prompted question to be answered causes problems and could be used in unpleasant ways. If you have a client, you can use it to highlight character names or beep or give a message when you see them on channels, or in WHO or WHOSHORT.
