When Does Expies Stuff Start?

ArchAngel says, 'when are the expie votings held and when are the expies? end of jan?'

Kaige says, 'nominations are coming up in January, final voting after that. Expies themselves are usually around Feb 14th'

______

Personal Harassment Questions

ArchAngel says, 'what if any are the limitations of the things stated in rule 2 for the mud here?'

LadyAce says, 'limits to rule 2, i.e. harassment. -- is your question?'

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'I'm not quite sure what you mean by limit, I guess?'

ArchAngel says, 'mroe precise the derogatory comments listed in there'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

ArchAngel says, 'where does that rule NOT apply..'

LadyAce says, 'It's very much on a case by case basis, I guess, if you get near the edge'

LadyAce says, 'we don't have a list that says 'you can harass people in this way, but not in that way''

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'the right thing to do is to file a complaint with the admin staff, with logs to back it up, or else grab them while it's happening'

Kaige says, 'yeah. it's so much, much more greyer than that.'

ArchAngel pokes the news board.

LadyAce says, 'we've caught a few people by being in the room or snooping a conversation'

Korgan snickers softly.

ArchAngel says, 'any info that I been able to use receently is in there from comments people made'

LadyAce says, 'We don't generally pursue these kinds of issues without complaints being filed.'

LadyAce says, 'if a person feels harassed, they come to us to see what can be done, and that varies.'

LadyAce says, 'so I really recommend that you go to the admins.'

ArchAngel says, 'who should I send the complaint to then? and you can consider it sent I've had enough of the comments i've received or heard'

Kaige says, 'wizlist contains the list of admins... note that Haley just went out of town for a week and a half or so'

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'harassment complaints are usually pretty personal -- talk to the admin you're most comfortable with'

______

General Harassment Questions

Joach says, 'what about deragadory(can't spell) things said on chat'

Joach says, 'that maybe aren't meant to one person'

Joach says, 'but offend people none the less'

Joach says, 'well the phraze gay as derogatory or bad offends me'

Joach says, 'on chat'

Kaige says, 'us too'

Joach says, 'but it's not used towards me'

Kaige says, 'and when we see it we warn for it'

Joach nods solemnly.

Joach says, 'thanks :)'

Korgan nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'even towards an object, a change, or code..'

Joach nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'not cool'

LadyAce says, 'well, it's not against the rules to say "You're stupid" or "I think your religion is stupid"'

Joach says, 'but saying gay like it's stupid'

Kaige says, 'is just stupid'

Joach says, 'comes from people making gay stupid'

Kaige nods her agreement with Joach.

LadyAce says, '"gay" as an insult falls into the category of racial/ethnic slurs'

Joach nods solemnly.

Joach says, 'thank you :)'

LadyAce says, 'warns go down for the "hate speech" element, rather than the harassment. It's a harassment of the whole mud, essentially'

Joach nods solemnly.

______

Allspells & Unimped Spells?

Riley says, 'I have an unrelated question...'

Riley says, 'Okay, I use allspells and spellbook, being a new player here.'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Riley says, 'Well, the spell shadowroom has a help file and I attempted to cast it, so that it would be in my spellbook'

Riley says, 'I know that is isn't implemented'

Riley says, 'But, it doesn't show up on allspells. I'm am under the impression that cast levels are very important.'

LadyAce says, 'probably they're shouldn't be a helpfile for it, either.'

ArchAngel says, 'if it isnt implemented than would it mean that you cant use it yet?'

LadyAce says, 'if we implemented it, it would go in with spellbooks so people could fix their levels'

Nexela goes ACK TTTTHHHHHPPPPPPTTTTTT!

LadyAce says, 'unimplemented means the code isn't written'

Riley says, 'But,'

LadyAce says, 'we used to take a different approach to spells -- we'd put in a skeleton, and fill it in later'

Nexela says, 'I wanna see new spells!@'

Riley says, 'If/when its implemented, shouldn't people be able to get it casted and into the spellbook at whatever level they find the word combo, like all other spells?'

Levi says, 'I'm back'

LadyAce says, 'lately the skeletons have seemed too unfilled for too long, so we've tried to filter out all those skeletons'

ArchAngel says, 'kinda like a new char you start small and then build up til your full'

Kaige says to Riley, 'they do. for already existing spells... it's the NEW ones that don't that get the spell books'

Riley says, 'But, the question is that, aren't you influencing the cast level, but not allowing it to be casted naturally, whether or not its functioning?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we have a lot planned in the new spell area. There's a lot of options for magic-users, and not so many for non-magic folks. I think our priority is that.'

Kaige says, 'so when you first cast the spell combo, your level gets marked down in your pfile and poof you're set if we ever do get to implement that spell'

Kaige says to Riley, 'your cast level gets set the first time you chant the word combo.. so it's NOT influencing it.. you're setting it the first time you put that combo together and you have to have the words for it to count. so I'm not sure the problem'

Riley says, 'Yes, but IT DOESN"T show in allspells, so a newbie like me would not cast it if he did not cheat and use legenddb'

Levi nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Riley says, 'It is if you dont tell people its there'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think we would put in a new spell and allow them to use cast levels from before the spell was implemented'

Kaige says, 'actually I think the unimped ones show up with a - beside them? does it do that for mortals too?'

LadyAce says, 'you're right that it creates some sort of strange secret knowledge, and we don't like that sort of thing either'

Kaige says, 'or is that just us it shows for?'

Riley says, 'No, I cannot see shadowroom in allspells, therefore, without legenddb, I wouldn't know about it, and if it got implemented, my cast level would be the time of implement'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'I think its just for you..'

LadyAce says, 'with or without legenddb, your cast level will be what it is at the time of implementation - 0'

Riley says, 'Even though I have it in my spellbook now?'

Kaige says, 'not necessarily.. depends on how you go about putting the combinations together... methodically or guessing or asking other players or looking them up on legenddb'

Kaige says, 'no..'

LadyAce says, 'I can't imagine us keeping your old cast level when we imp a new spell.'

Kaige says, 'not with the spells we have listed in OUR allspells with -'s next to them...'

Kaige says, 'we do and have since we've done spells'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'I think what he means are the spells that are castable but don't do anything -- so you get a cast level set, but it doesn't do you any good right away'

Riley says, 'But what about shadow room for instance?'

Levi wields a truncheon.

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'Some were never castable that were unimped, but some were/are'

Kaige says, 'which is why someone got the bright idea for spellbooks.. so even NEW spells not thought of before could get as low as possible cast levels'

ArchAngel says, 'it isnt implemented so its not a real spell yet and cant affect you'

ArchAngel says, 'its like skill trees it wont get put in until all bugs are worked out'

Kaige says, ' yes.. and you get the benefits of that low cast level as soon as it's implemented.. not a cast level of where you are when it's implemented like was with frostbolt or anything else that has a spellbook made like that'

Riley says, 'And shadowroom, will I have the cast level of whatever level I'm at when it gets implemented or the level it is now?'

Kaige says to Riley, 'you'll have the cast level of when ever you first chanted that spell combo'

Kaige says, 'not when it gets implemented'

Riley says, 'Then shouldn't it be in allspells?'

Levi says, 'I think skill trees are the bane of muds.'

Levi says, 'just my personal opinion.'

Kaige says, 'we USED to have them in allspells, but got flak about why every time I chant this spell do I lose mana and nothing happens.'

Riley says, 'I mean, why tell people all the spells, if you ain't gonna tell 'em all the spells'

Riley says, 'Then they should read the helpfile, yes?'

ArchAngel says, 'legenddb aint a part of this mud'

Kaige says to Riley, 'you'd think, huh?'

Levi nods his agreement with Kaige.

ArchAngel says, 'if you hadnt read that you wouldnt have known about the spell then would you :P'

Riley says, 'I know that, the point is that if it had not been a part of my information, I woulnd't know, and that doesnt make any sense'

ArchAngel says, 'umm maybe because its not fully installed..'

Levi sighs loudly.

ArchAngel says, 'once it gets installed I think it'll show in allspels..'

Kaige says, 'it's the same part of the info (given the spell words and the patterns used to make spells) that people had before legenddb was made too'

Riley says, 'Umm, maybe I'm worried that someone will get screwed outta their cast level, and I should bring it up now'

LadyAce says, 'Hrm, I guess I'm getting a better picture of this now -- stuff that shows in allspells but not spellbok, for some reason I was thinking of stuff that used to show up in allspells but doesn't any more.'

Kaige says, 'we didn't used to have an allspells command'

LadyAce nods to herself.

Riley says, 'No.'

Riley says, 'It shows up in spellbook, after I used the combo.'

Riley says, 'But it never showed up in allspells.'

Kaige says, 'not for you..'

Riley says, 'So, had I been unaware of other input'

LadyAce says, 'Ah....'

Korgan says to Riley, 'you got a jacked up spellbook'

ArchAngel laughs at Korgan.

Riley says, 'I would not have what to me is the optimal cast level'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'well, but this is a problem, because people use allspells to see what's out there, and then try to figure out combos from that. If it never hits allspells, some people know to cast it and some couldn't ever know.'

Riley says, 'So,'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'am I getting this now?'

Riley says, 'If you allow it in my spellbook, should not you allow it in my allspells?'

Levi nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'personally at this point I wouldn't care if they showwed in allspells with a - next to them... some indication that they're there, but not functional'

Levi says, 'it's a legitimate point'

Kaige says to Riley, 'so a good thing to do would be to use the IDEA channel'

Levi nods his agreement with Kaige.

Levi says, 'need a denotion'

Riley says, 'Thank god, I thought you people weren't gonna take me seriously there for a minute'

Riley grins evilly.

ArchAngel says, 'I dont use a mage so I wouldnt care really'

Riley says, 'I don't really care,'

LadyAce says to Riley, 'just took us a moment to get what you meant -- I don't use legenddb so presumably I don't have the spell on any of my chars :)'

Riley says, 'Its just something I noticed.'

Kaige says, 'I still think that knowing spells are made up of 1st, 1st 2nd, 1st 2nd 2nd or 1st 2nd 3rd gives you every possible one out there.. plus a lot we didn't come up with spells for'

Riley says to LadyAce, 'Shadowroom doesn't seem that important to me, but there might be more important spells for other people. :P'

ArchAngel says, 'oh crap I forgot to start that one petition asking to shut legenddb down for a week....'

Riley says, 'That's true, but you have the allspells command, right?'

Kaige says, 'no, I have the words command'

Kaige says, 'I don't use my imm spellbook when I play a mortal mage.'

Riley says, 'You implemented the allspells command?'

Riley says, 'That's what I meant'

LadyAce says, 'I only use my imm spellbook to figure out how to make orbs on pkmuds'

LadyAce chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'so we don't have to go blind'

Riley waves happily.

Riley says, 'I'm not sure we solved anything, but now you are aware.'

Riley says, 'Thanks for you time.'

______

What is LegendDB?

Levi says, 'what is legenddb?'

Riley snickers softly.

Kaige says to Levi, 'an unnofficial "help" (read cheat) page'

ArchAngel says to Levi, 'a site you shouldn't use at all'

ArchAngel nods to himself.

Levi says to Kaige, 'do you endorse or support it here at legendmud in any way?'

Korgan shakes his head in disagreement with Levi.

ArchAngel says, 'its not supported by imms or some players'

Levi says to Kaige, 'what is your opinion on the site?'

Kaige says to Levi, 'I definitely don't endorse it and wish they'd fix their damn errors at least'

Korgan jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Kaige!

Kaige says, 'i use it as a place to look to see what to fix and where to change things'

LadyAce says, 'I think that it ruins the fun and hurts the challenge of the game for players'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'they rely on players to help them'

Kaige says, 'not as good as beam's old page in that respect but useful too'

Kaige nods her agreement with ArchAngel.

Riley says, 'I think that information is inevitable, and that someone, maybe even me, needs to take what legenddb started and finish it. Correctly this time.'

LadyAce says, 'we go to a lot of work to make challenging quests that are interesting and have good clues, and then somebody does a speedwalk...'

Levi nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kaige says to ArchAngel, 'they have to. and they don't double check the info before posting it.'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'I used to help them out with the items'

Levi says, 'so basically, it's like a walkthrough guide?'

Levi says, 'like, a guide for a video game?'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Levi.

ArchAngel says, 'a guide? more like a completely here's the dirs for you and here's what you say'

Levi says, 'hmmm'

LadyAce says, 'then people complain that we have no puzzles for them :P'

ArchAngel says, 'and from time to time heres what you say but it gets you killed'

Kaige says, 'it's not a walk through guide.. most of those leave a little work for you to figure stuff out on'

Kaige says, 'and a lot of their gear info's just wacky'

ArchAngel says, 'whats funny is people dont realize if you stick around mobs you find out all you need to ask them...'

Levi says, 'I see.....so...if you came here looking for a challenge, you probably shouldnt go there?'

Korgan nods his agreement with Levi.

ArchAngel says, 'you shouldn't go there AT all'

Kaige says, 'if you get a kick out of exploring and solving puzzles yourself, no.'

Levi smiles happily.

Levi nods solemnly.

Levi says, 'that's me'

Kaige says, 'ecen if you're a min-maxer you're liable to get stung by going there. It's always amusing to see people asking for non-existent gear variations'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'whats funny is seeing people ask for dirs to get to the places'

______

Writing LT Articles?

Levi says, 'I am inquiring about how I could write an article for your publication.'

Kaige says to Levi, 'have you seen the WEBSITES command?'

Levi says, 'I havent actually'

Kaige says, '3rd item there: www.legendmud.org/Community/ltsubmission.php'

Kaige says, 'is the place to go to submit articles... or you can just mail them to lt@legendmud.org, but the page is useful as it does word counts and stuff for you'

Levi says, 'although I did look at your website'

Levi says, 'so anyone is open for this?'

Levi says, 'I don't have to 'apply'?'

LadyAce says, 'help lt gives the full deal'

Korgan says to Levi, 'just have to submit something'

Kaige says to Levi, 'nope.'

Levi smiles happily.

Levi says, 'and what may be earned, if anything at all, by doing this? I know some other muds support a roleplay base system, where I could choose an item for myself to wear, and write an article, for it?'

Levi says, 'from what I saw of your character pages, there are some great in depth characters here'

Kaige says, 'rp articles, pk write ups typically get prize machine tokens'

Kaige says, 'general articles, you get to share your opinions and knowledge with others... clan news unless it's very RP/PK in nature are genally considered advertising for the clan and part of gm responsibility'

Levi says to Kaige, 'I was wondering about something a little more....player specific.'

Kaige smiles at Levi.

ArchAngel says to Levi, 'the tokens can be used to customize eq to the players rp'

Kaige says, 'the prize machine tokens allow you to win pre-made strings or coupons to get customized strings for your equipment'

Kaige says, 'and you get your story archived to the web for all antiquity'

Kaige says, 'the pre-made descriptions in the prize machine get rotated so you don't always have a chance of getting the same thing'

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'tokens win pre-made strings or coupons for customized strings, and strings can be applied to your equipment to make it look specialler.'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Levi nods his agreement with Kaige.

ArchAngel says, 'tahts what coupons are for'

ArchAngel says, 'for making things like this'

Kaige says, 'no.. but often you can also sell them to OTHER people who might want to collect one for good money'

ArchAngel nonchalantly flips the Royal Battleship, "Executioner".

LadyAce is working on an update this week, even.

Levi nods solemnly.

Levi says, 'help coupon was huge in explaining that'

ArchAngel licks a silver longsword engraved "Excalibur".

Levi nods his agreement with Kaige.

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'there's a big variety of strings in the prize machine, as well as coupons.'

Lorenzo says, 'and some people really want to buy tokens, or to sell coupons'

Lorenzo says, 'so they can be a kind of currency if you're looking for a different kind of customization'

______

Skilltrees -- Why try for them?

Levi says, 'is the immortal staff in favor or against implementing skilltrees intop the mud?'

Kaige says, 'it wouldn't still be mentioned if we weren't.'

Levi says, 'hmmm'

LadyAce says, 'well, it's our idea and plan ... can you be more particular about "in favor"? I think the trouble is that they're not written :('

Levi says, 'I'm not asking from a standpoint of, when are they going to be done'

Levi says, 'Im asking if the general populace of your staff is 'for' skilltrees.'

LadyAce says, 'I think what I'm wondering is why you ask :)'

ArchAngel says, 'their going to be done last I knew its just a matter of what ever the imms are doing...'

Levi giggles at LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'like I said.. we wouldn't still be taking flak about it if it wasn't something we didn't want to do'

Kaige chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'I don't know of any big debates about 'should we or shouldn't we' ... it's the plan, the vision, the goal, the someday-we-really-gotta....'

Levi says, 'because I think that NOT having them keeps you diverse from other muds.'

Kaige says, 'the debates are more along the lines of "we need to add this" "we need to do that" "no no i should be THIS way"'

Levi nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'Maybe we use the term differently than they do, then'

ArchAngel says, 'if I get immed when I get back I'll do it personally :P'

LadyAce says, 'it's really a unique system, I don't see it changing our uniqueness'

ArchAngel says, 'I think it'll make the skill getting better really'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think it would change our "classless mud" character, for example'

Levi shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'it's more of a way to bring balance between specialists and jacks-of-all-trades.'

LadyAce says, 'and a huge explosion in diversity for pretty much everyone'

Levi says, 'I just see this on a lot of other muds that have skilltrees implemented.'

ArchAngel says to LadyAce, 'like lima people?'

Levi says, 'I also notice that although the people around here seem to ask for a lot of change'

Levi says, 'they get very hostile when such change is breached.'

ArchAngel says, 'you missed when pkok came in...'

LadyAce says, 'I'd guess that we have a different meaning for the term than they do, I'm accustomed to it in our usage, but there's may be more like stovepipes and classes than trees :)'

Levi says, 'I admire the people who walk a fine line there'

LadyAce says, 'well, it's a challenging sort of place to spend time, that's for sure. Our players are pretty invested in this place, which is both a thrill and a struggle to work with :)'

Levi says to ArchAngel, 'I have seen change on many muds.'

Levi nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Levi says to LadyAce, 'as is any great endeavor worth working for, correct?'

ArchAngel says to Levi, 'when pkok came in I thought some people were gunna perma on the first night'

LadyAce says, 'it may be too that we tolerate dissent more readily -- at least in some places, I know that arguing is essentially quashed.'

Lorenzo says, 'it's funny when people declare that they've had it and are leaving for Mud X, and they're back in 2 weeks dishevelled, dismayed, and disappointed'

LadyAce says, 'so we encourage an atmosphere of debate, really.'

ArchAngel says, 'except on certain terms...'

LadyAce says, 'by allowing it, and given human nature...well :)'

Levi nods solemnly.

LadyAce says to Levi, 'sure :) but sometimes, it's nice to have pure fun with a hobby, too :)'

Kaige says, 'yes, civil debate is always preferrable'

Levi says, 'I just had time to look at a few boards before I saw the q and a mentioned'

______

Awesome Custom Starting EQ!

Levi says, 'I really like the custom fit I got by pickig my character from london'

Kaige smiles happily.

Levi tips over a black bowler, making a frightful mess.

Kaige says, 'if you mean the clothing and all.. that was a player idea.'

Kaige smiles happily.

Levi says, 'that's great'

Levi says, 'are all the towns like that?'

Kaige nods her agreement with Levi.

Levi says, 'very fancy'

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'that went in... what, 2 summers ago? I think.'

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'all the hometowns'

Levi says to Lorenzo, 'Im new here.'

Levi giggles.

Kaige says, 'you don't get to pick if you're born rich or poor or in the middle, but all the hometowns have custom equipment like that now'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Levi.

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'I was just suddenly uncertain :)'

Levi smiles happily.

ArchAngel says, 'and certain skills that they do better at too..'

Kaige says, 'tho I think Klein is waiting on the update to get fancier'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'what update?'

ArchAngel grins evilly.

Kaige points at LadyAce.

ArchAngel is a klein born killing machine...

LadyAce giggles.

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Levi says, 'oo'

Kaige says, 'the one everyone keeps asking her about for the housing they want there'

Kaige giggles.

Lorenzo says to ArchAngel, 'you'll see it when you get back :)'

ArchAngel nods his agreement with Lorenzo.

ArchAngel says, 'tahts what I'm afraid off'

LadyAce says, 'I think there's some customy eq for newbies in current klein, really'

ArchAngel says, 'along with skill trees....'

Piccolo says, 'Ein hat, Ein vest, Ein sword?'

ArchAngel says, 'dude I remember coming out of klein with NO weapon one time'

Kaige says, 'it just looks like the limbo stuff from before just converted to the new format'

Piccolo says, 'I remember trying to talk to Ein Briefkasten or something when I first joined'

______

Native Language in Areas?

Piccolo says, 'makes me wonder, though.. do players prefer genuine language areas like Quebec and Klien, or would you prefer English translations?'

Piccolo says, 'for the long descs and short descs?'

Kaige says, 'I get a lot of requests to make certain areas more "wherever" sounding alot'

Lorenzo says to Piccolo, 'I think the localization is nice, but it needs to be done with moderation'

Piccolo says, 'For example, would people prefer 'Tian An Men' or 'Gate of Hevenly Peace''

ArchAngel says to Piccolo, 'the tian an men sounds better'

Lorenzo says to Piccolo, 'Tian An Men, definitely. Mainly, it just needs to be somewhat memorable to a person who doesn't really know the language, I think.'

Piccolo nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'not something you have to take to www.freetranslation.com to figure out'

Lorenzo says to Piccolo, 'but I'd like to know from seeing the room that Tian An Men means Gate of Heavenly Peace, too'

Kaige nods in agreement with Lorenzo.

Piccolo says, 'That's an example, though... can you imagine almot a whole area with words like that? Like Klien and Quebec'

Kaige says, 'Aztecs is kinda in between the extremes I think..'

Kaige sighs loudly.

Piccolo nods solemnly.

Lorenzo says, 'I find Klein comfortably German, but Quebec overly French. And I know passable French, but only slightly know German.'

Piccolo says, 'Aztecs gives an Aztec flavour.. I was genuinely confused in Klien.. before I found the scholar'

Kaige says, 'it's also different when both the long and the short are in one language and you have to look closely at everything to guess what it might be'

Kaige says, 'with aztecs I tried, (and probably missed a bunch of places) to let people know what something was when they first encountered it in their "english" perception and then show the aztecs interpretation in the shorts'

LadyAce says, 'I think they're good for flavor :) but then I used the technique in Crusades, so I'm biased.'

Piccolo nods solemnly.

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'it's just another axis on the balancing highwire act'

Piccolo says, 'All I know about Crusades clothing is which ones make rolls, which ones make bandages and which ones don't make anything.. Haven't a clue what they are =)'

Lorenzo says, 'I like Klein and Crusades, and Aztec. Quebec just feels like too much, somehow.'

Lorenzo shrugs helplessly.

Piccolo ducks to the ground.

LadyAce giggles at Piccolo.

Lorenzo says, 'not sure what it is'

LadyAce says, 'well, if you looked at the items or dropped 'em, you'd know more :)'

Kaige says to Lorenzo, 'I think it's that just about Every room title is in french and shoves you into a different perspective'

Lorenzo says to Kaige, 'maybe, but I'm trying to find another explanation cause I don't feel as good about myself if that's the right one'

Lorenzo chuckles politely.

Piccolo chuckles politely.

Lorenzo looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'I get lost having to translate in my head when I'm in quebec proper just to find the inn'

Lorenzo says, 'OK, take Paris -- it feels fine to me, though it's the same language as Quebec.'

Lorenzo says, 'it just doesn't feel as "heavy"'

Kaige says, 'old section or new?'

Kaige says, 'or combined?'

ArchAngel says, 'I like knowing that the areas have room names that are complicated that way you cant like say yeah I know where that is and instantly head there'

Lorenzo says to Kaige, 'haven't been to the new one yet, actually'

Lorenzo hangs his head.

Kaige says, 'I think it's cause the rooms that are in French you can imagine having a sign on the door saying that... but the rooms that are just general rooms like walking along or backstage or the stalls and stuff aren't in french'

Kaige says to Lorenzo, 'but in quebec EVERYTHING seems to be in french'

______

Mood Bugs

Rush says, 'that super annoying kick typo is still there'

Rush says, 'that gonna get fixed?'

ArchAngel says to Rush, 'it wont ever get fixed :P'

LadyAce says, 'Hm, I think there's a board post on that?'

ArchAngel says, 'the imms like it too much :P'

LadyAce says, 'welcome 17 has the lowdown'

Rush says, 'oh'

Rush says, 'another thing'

Rush says, 'a couple times'

Rush says, 'i logged in'

Rush says, 'and my mood didn't work right for maybe a minute'

Rush says, 'then it like, kicked in'

LadyAce says, 'that's kinda strange...'

Rush says, 'extremely'

LadyAce says, 'did you report it via bug?'

Rush says, 'yk, like, I chat hello and it does regular hello'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Rush nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'saw that come through'

Rush says, 'then check score and see my mood is set'

Rush says, 'say a couple things normall'

Rush says, 'then all of a sudden the mood kicks in'

Rush says, 'weirdness'

ArchAngel says, 'it did taht with me too'

LadyAce says, 'hm, it's hard to think what would cause that ... did it fix it when you typed save?'

LadyAce says, 'like, could it have been after you saved or were saved?'

LadyAce says, 'that's the only thing I can think of that might 'kick in' after x minutes.'

Rush says, 'no clue'

Rush says, 'i'll watch tho'

LadyAce says, 'well, next time it comes up! :)'

Rush says, 'anyway I'll keep an eye on it'

______

Games and Events

Levi says, 'neato'

Levi says, 'you guys host games here as well....'

Levi says, 'thats great'

Levi says, 'weekly? or....just whenever?'

LadyAce says, 'you can keep up on what we're doing by keeping an eye on the events list'

LadyAce says, 'I put things in there as I plan to do them. If I can get my brain synchronized again, they might even start happening at the time I promise...*has been confused about 2 different events in the last week*'

LadyAce says, 'sometimes games don't go in there, usually because they haven't been planned in advance'

LadyAce says, 'usually if something is planned in advance, like if Kae and Cheyla decide to give the Elf game another try, or if Sandra schedules another tourney, it'll be there.'

Levi says, 'thats neat'

LadyAce isn't the only person putting stuff in there, which is what she implied earlier, which wasn't true :)

Levi says, 'Elf game?'

Levi says, 'that a Christmas thing?'

Kaige says, 'and if you have color, the days with events are usually the same as your fight color so they stand out'

LadyAce says, 'no, it's an occasional thing -- not running this Christmas, but did run at Halloween'

Levi says, 'how come not this Christmas?'

Levi says, 'elfs seem to fit Christmas'

LadyAce says, '"elf" is just the name that's stuck'

LadyAce says, 'imps might make more sense'

Levi says, 'hmmm'

LadyAce says, 'essentially, themed creatures that you kill to get their loot'

LadyAce giggles.

Levi says, 'ahhh, what is the point of the elf imp game?'

Levi nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'it has a help file -- help elf game'

Levi says, 'loot as in, equipment?'

Levi says, 'ok'

Levi says, 'hehe'

Kaige says, 'elf was cause it was first run at christmas and that's what the mobs were and it stuck'

Levi says, 'you have been very helpful to me everyone. :)'

LadyAce says to Levi, 'I'm glad :)'

LadyAce is ready to head out :)

LadyAce waves happily.

Kaige sighs loudly.

Kaige says, 'sick kid. sorry to have to run.'

Kaige waves happily.

Kaige gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Lorenzo smiles happily.

Lorenzo waves good-bye to Levi.

Lorenzo says to Levi, 'welcome -- hope you enjoy our little planet'

Lorenzo smiles happily.
