Too Many Resist Items?

Brendan says, 'ok why do we have so many resist items in game?'

Brendan says, 'because its a bit unbalancing and giving a lot of pkers few choices for weapons'

LadyAce says, 'it seems like what you're saying first is "I think we have too many resist items in the game." -- yes?'

Brendan nods solemnly.

Brendan says, 'aye'

Brendan says, 'before it was resist smite was made amulet.. now i hear you can buy em'

Kaige says, 'we added more to give more choices and bring it into better balance instead of only one type of weapon being effectively blocked'

LadyAce says, 'I think we'd like to have a resist in there for everything'

Brendan says, 'but by doing so you have limited choices in pk weapons.. jawbone for strength, switchblade for dex.. and oaken staff for con unless there is a resist pound im not aware of'

Sandra says, 'if you think you can use just those 3 weapons, you should get out more'

Brendan cringes in terror.

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandra.

Kaige giggles.

Brendan says, 'i havent been here in almost 2 years im trying =p'

LadyAce says, 'the idea isn't to make it so there's one superduper attack type that isn't resisted :P'

LadyAce says, 'the idea is to make ways to counteract everything, and make strategy more a part of the game.'

LadyAce says, 'or at least, to reward strategy in ways we haven't'

Brendan cringes in terror.

Brendan says, 'pk tho i find is dumb with the resists..'

Brendan sighs loudly.

Kaige says, 'also, don't just take people's word for what's "best" -- exploring and comparing things firsthand is always better'

Brendan says, 'what fun is it to have 2 chars fighting and both can resist each other? =p'

LadyAce says, '"dumb" how tho? It seems like it would increase the time fights take, which generally makes them more interesting in my experience'

LadyAce says, 'what's wrong with them resisting each other tho?'

Brendan says, 'ok say a newbie fights an oldbie..'

Brendan says, 'they have no clue on resists.. they get owned without even knowing why'

Sandra says, 'it's always been that way. It's called 'learning''

Brendan says, 'and that is a turn off i bet for newbies'

LadyAce says, 'knowledge is power'

Brendan says, 'well yeah bah dammit all!'

Kaige comforts Brendan.


Info on Expansions/Updates?

Brendan says, 'oh yeah.. what all expansions etc have been put in the last year?'

Brendan says, 'i got lost the other night in indus trying to get to the quiet road =p'

LadyAce says, 'help updates is fairly up to date'

Bart says, 'alaska, paris, tudor to name 3 off the top of my head'

Brendan says, 'ooh help update!'

Kaige says, 'updates, not just update'

Kaige says, 'they're slightly different'

Kaige chuckles politely.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce makes a 'teensy' sign with her fingers.

Brendan says, 'is there a spell update help file too?'

Brendan says, 'i heard ring of fire is combat castable and was like whoa i gotta check it'

Kaige says, 'LT archives is the best place for all the dirty details like that'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Brendan says, 'i can never get that page to load right :('

LadyAce says, 'do a search on your favorite spells and see what's what'

Brendan nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'www.legendmud.org/Community/times.html?'

Brendan says, 'cool you can search there now?'

LadyAce says, 'search has been in for like 3 years'

Brendan says to Kaige, 'yeah i used to have problems hitting the site..'

Kaige says, 'yeah. look for the little box at the bottom of the red ribbon on the main contents page.. or at the top of the site index page'

LadyAce says, 'scroll down, on the left.'

Brendan is completely boggled.

Brendan says to LadyAce, 'never seen it'

Brendan peers at himself myopically.

Brendan says, 'god ive missed too much in my time gone'


Klein Update?

Brendan says, 'speaking of updates..'

Brendan says, 'is your klien update coming along good?'

Brendan was looking forward to that when he left..

Brendan says to Bart, 'not to mention i still gotta see your stuff ;)'

LadyAce says, 'I got some good progress done on it over vacation, yea'

Brendan cheers wildly!

Bart winks suggestively at Brendan.


Legality of Certain Illusions?

Rush says, 'gavvius''

Rush says, 'his illusions'

Rush says, 'as I read the rules they are illegal'

Rush says, 'I'd like some input on that'

Brendan would like to also complain about something he did in a second..

LadyAce says, 'I've not been here, someone want to fill me in on the trouble?'

Sandra says, 'it's kinda hard to know what illusions you mean ;)'

LadyAce did get a note about it but didn't quite grok the situation

Bart says, 'gavvius making a few illusions of the caress social and things like that'

Rush says, 'he makes illusions of him emoting a caress and him emoting a stroke'

Rush says, 'like all over sherwood'

Sandra says, 'oh'

Rush says, 'and several people asked him to stop'

Kaige gives a small piece of paper from Rush to Sandra.

Sandra says, 'well, we should kill him then'

Sandra reads a small piece of paper from Rush.

Rush laughs.

Brendan laughs.

Brendan says, 'leave it to sandra to want blood =p'

Sandra says, 'idiots annoy me. Best to squish 'em while you can'

Sandra gives a small piece of paper from Rush to Kaige.

Rush says, 'as i understand it sexual socials like that are ok if the person recieving them is ok with it, seems like he is forcing lots of people to be socialed in an uncomfortable way'

Brendan nods his agreement with Sandra.

Kaige says, 'I hadn't heard if either of the other imms you mailed had read their copy yet and have kept an eye out on existing illusions since I got back.'

Kaige says, 'haven't seen any that bad since then tho'

LadyAce says to Lorenzo, 'me neither, I have a super command for it, too'

Rush nods solemnly.

Rush says, 'only once since the night I sent that did i see them all over'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'we'll keep an eye out for them and beat him soundly'

Brendan says, 'may i comment on same subject?'

Rush smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'of course, is open forum'

Rush says, 'thanks :) lol'

Brendan says, 'not only have i seen gavvius doing things like poisoning food in stag and casting plague while lots of ppl there.. but he is very rude many other times as well'

Brendan says, 'is there a way we can ask for him/her/it to calm down a bit?'

Sandra says, 'gosh'

Brendan says, 'never seems to respond to tells or anything..'

LadyAce says, 'If we get complaints, we'll definitely address them'

LadyAce says, 'we'd need to get those complaints tho'

Sandra says, 'you weren't around when Augustus was, were you? ;)'

Brendan says, 'just after =p'

Kaige giggles at Sandra.

Brendan says, 'its nothing just annoying mainly i know =p'

Brendan says, 'not to mention his house =p'

Brendan snorts derisively.

Sandra says, 'Yea, I"ve heard about the house'

Rush cheers for Kaige - huzzah!

Rush says, 'kaiges post on that was most lovely'

Kaige giggles.

Brendan says, 'it was?'

Brendan peers around intently.

Rush says, 'is on discussion'

Brendan says, 'aah'

Sandra says, 'anyone that can afford to put 20 photos of himself in the house, can afford 1k more rent a day'

Rush says, 'basically "getta door you big dork"'

Kaige says, 'he's got a cheap house with a cheap door.. he could kill one mob a day to pay for the door. OR he could dump the duplicates of the photos and pay the same with a door'

Brendan says, 'exactly..'

Lorenzo says to Sandra, 'I dunno, photos are cheap... dailies add up'

Lorenzo sighs at himself. What a sorry sight.

Lorenzo whimpers softly.

Kaige says, 'not even 1k.. it's only 100gp there for the door'

Kaige rolls her eyes heavenward.

Brendan snickers softly.

Lorenzo says, 'not that Gavvius can't afford it'

Sandra says, '10 coins a strip adds up after a while'

Kaige says, '10 photos = 1 door'

Brendan says, 'ive tried to argue it with cheyla.. it didnt go so well =p'


Rent and Housing?

Rush says, 'oh oh thats another question I never saw the imms answer'

Rush says, 'on that board'

Rush says, 'i liked the idea about having the total rent of your house allow that much eq to be stored there'

Rush says, 'is there a reason why you guys dun like that?'

Sandra says, 'it'll suck to code?'

Huginn says, 'that'd be too unbalancing imo'

Kaige says, 'because that'd basically be that much more stuff dumped in houses and sitting on the harddisk too.. and too easy access to items for the active clans'

LadyAce says, 'it'd make running a shop actually workable....'

Brendan says, 'on the same topic.. any neat addition to having a clan house would be nice other than the shared ability which you can do with befriend anyway..'

Kaige says, 'and people would take it as an invitation to trade it through their chars more'

Rush says, 'I dun get it'

Rush giggles.

Lorenzo says, 'and an incentive to have houses and develop them into nice social environments'

Rush says, 'unbalancing? access for clans? trade with their own chars?'

Sandra says, 'in short: People like to cheat too much =P'

Brendan nods his agreement with Lorenzo.

Rush says, 'oh'

Lorenzo says, 'I can't say that I'd ever make another house, really'

Rush says, 'no cheating! well, depends on you definition of cheating ...'

Rush ducks under Sandra.

Sandra giggles.

Rush says, 'the only reason I want one is cuz I have lousy str and I am a packrat'

Lorenzo says, 'I mean now, without changes'

Brendan says, 'actually.. in the 2 days ive been back ive been approached to hold something and someone would buy it with thier alt..'

Rush says, 'i like my cook collectible stuff'

Brendan says, 'i also would like to note i said no =p'

Rush says, 'is not a good idea to do that stuff'

Brendan gives Sandra a great big smooch!

Sandra ruffles Brendan's hair playfully.


Housing Doors Too Tough?

Brendan says, 'another thing with housing.. is it possible to get the doors beefed down a little so they arent so hard to break into?'

Brendan scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Rush says, 'nooooooo!!!!!!!'

Rush giggles.

Bart says, 'the bigger the door the higher the rent, if someone has the money/ability to get the bigger door then there is the price'

Brendan sighs loudly.

Brendan says, 'more breaking tools with high rent!'

Brendan nods to himself.

Rush says, 'dassa good idea'

LadyAce says, 'don't like the ones you have? :P'

Brendan says, 'again.. last i remember lock picks were a joke.. and the ram wasnt so hot'

Brendan shakes his head.

Rush says, 'not like i have any idea what the current break door tools are'

Brendan says, 'maybe lower the tick timer on trying again?'

Brendan looks up into the sky and ponders.

Brendan says, 'again.. last i remember it was around 2 hours? aka 4 ticks?'

Brendan says, 'usually took around 5-6 tho i believe.. i could be wrong its been a while'

Rush says, 'thats when I'd get bored and set p a script with a sound notificationw hen it worked :P'

Brendan nods his agreement with Rush.

Brendan says, 'it does get lonely sitting outside for a bit =p'

Brendan says, 'just to fail again in the long wait.. to wait longer..'

Rush nods her agreement with Brendan.

Brendan says, 'hmm maybe make doors/locks damagable?'

Brendan says, 'the more abuse they take the % goes down?'

Brendan looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'then scripting would be *really* advantageous. ick.'

Brendan says, 'realistically if you ram or pick a lock.. it would get some wear and tear..'

Rush says, 'you couldn't actually get up from the puter tho'

Kaige says, 'having more than one person working on it would be advantageous too'

Bart says, 'potentially making the lock unpickable due to damage...'

Rush says, 'all you could do is set the script so you dinna have to type the same crap over and over and watch it out of the corner of your eye'

LadyAce says, 'or just walk away and not watch it :)'

LadyAce says, 'whether the person was on or not'

Brendan says, 'hmm true point there bart..'

LadyAce says, 'weren't you just complaining about an unsociable fellow? One guy like that could run around ruining everyone's doors one night :P'

Brendan says, 'bah make doors check for pkok then =p'

Rush says, 'only if they are accepting him tho right?'

Krynn says, 'blah, been done.'

Brendan says, 'well he could ruin any door..'

Krynn says, 'i broke into 40 houses in 1 night.'

Rush says, 'or is it only that you can't steal from houses if you aren't accepting'

LadyAce says, 'breaking into houses doesn't take pkok acceptance'

Rush says, 'ohhh'

LadyAce says to Krynn, 'we're talking about permanent damage to the house'

Krynn says to LadyAce, 'oooh'

Rush says, 'yk'

Krynn knows some houses that need to be burnt down.

Brendan snickers softly.

Kaige giggles.

Brendan nods his agreement with Krynn.

LadyAce tosses Brendan a can of worms. 'Enjoy!' :)

Rush says, 'i think that sounds ok actually'

Rush giggles.

LadyAce says to Brendan, 'I don't think people spend a whole lot of time trying to break into houses, or hiding in them for that matter'

LadyAce says, 'if you haven't tried it in a while, then try it and see how it goes'

Brendan says, 'ooooh ok..'

Brendan says, 'dammit im trying to be lazy here =p'

LadyAce says, 'I think it's nice for there to be dastardly deeds you can do without resorting to pk, and breaking into houses is one of 'em :)'


Reimbs for Char/Housing Bug?

Rush says, 'yk, it sucks that the only person who I know that permanently lost stuff in that horrible bug is nice and gavvius got to keep his lousy house'

Rush grumbles.

Sandra says to Rush, 'who?'

Rush shakes her head.

Rush says, 'a friend lost his entire house'

Bart says, 'who?'

Rush says, 'with like a billion strings and coupons'

Rush says, 'Isam'

Brendan says, 'i know isam lost his'

Brendan nods solemnly.

Rush says, 'his pfile was cirrupt'

Brendan says, 'strings old stuff..'

Brendan says, 'sad story but i dont mind the missing old gear =p'

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

Rush says, 'also I can spell just not type very well witha kis on my lap'

Sandra says, 'the pfile wasn't the problem with the house'

Sandra says, 'I restored all houses that day to before the purge'

Bart nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandra says, 'so if his house was gone, then it was gone before that'

Rush says, 'the problem was that he had picked everything up and sold his house and archived'

LadyAce says, 'any house issues, we should've been able to resolve 100%'

Rush says, 'but the only good backup f him was before he sold his house and therefore before he icked up all athat stuff'

Rush says, 'see?'

Sandra says, 'ah. Well he didn't explain that to me when I fixed his file =P'

LadyAce says, 'he should've asked for a reimb if he didn't get all the stuff he should've had....'

Rush says, 'should I mention to him that yall are unaware?'

Bart says, 'I spoke with isam a day or 2 ago and suggested he mail kaige/haley with the info...'

Rush nods her agreement with Bart.

Sandra says, 'I specifically asked him if he had everything, and he said yes, except for the stuff that was in his house. I figured he meant he was hit with the housing bug like all the others'

Rush says, 'i was really just complaining'

Rush scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Brendan says, 'snicker he didnt say the stuff in his house he had ON him? hehe'


Repop Too Long on Certain Mobs?

Brendan says, 'morgawr.. repop time is nasty.. can we up it a bit?'

Brendan says, 'i dont like sitting for over 2 rl hours and no repop..'

Sandra says to Brendan, 'probably not'

Brendan says, 'yeah isam is a bit slow on explaining like i am sandra'

Bart says to Brendan, 'the answer, I suspect, is that the builder is happy with the repop time'

Brendan says to Sandra, 'aww but its forever!'

Brendan sniffles quietly.

Rush giggles at Brendan.

Rush says, 'like SL!'

Brendan says to Bart, 'and my luck is its a sandra mob right? =p'

LadyAce says, 'well, it's in Croaker's RB expansion....'

Brendan says to LadyAce, 'ack'

LadyAce says, 'so it's not likely to be a Sandra mob :P'

Brendan nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'the repop's not as long as others out there.'

Bart nods his agreement with Kaige.

Brendan says to LadyAce, 'plus its nasty so i always think of sandra mobs =p'

Brendan ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'seems reasonable enough'

LadyAce says, 'a 2 hour repop isn't unreasonable at all'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

LadyAce says, 'you shouldn't sit around for 2 hours waiting on a repop if you don't enjoy doing such things'

Brendan says, 'oooooh ok.. geesh i cant get a good lazy question to get in here =p'

LadyAce says, 'you're just setting yourself up to be unhappy :P'

LadyAce hugs Brendan.

Kaige says, 'plenty of the rest of the world to visit in the meantime'

Brendan says to Kaige, 'so i can get lost again =p'

Brendan nods to himself.

Kaige comforts Brendan.

Bart winks suggestively at Brendan.

Rush nods her agreement with Brendan.

Rush says, 'always carry 2 recalls!'

Kaige says, 'pen and paper are your firends'

Brendan says, 'heck i got lost on the way to salem =p'

Kaige nods her agreement with Rush.

Kaige says, 'those too'

Krynn says, 'a 2 hour repop is nothing for such an "in-demand" item. it takes SL over 8 hours to repop, and eq there is very heavily used.'

Bart says to Brendan, 'go explore the various expansions :)'


Exploring & Clients?

Rush says, 'I get lost everyplace'

Rush says, 'its sad'

Bart says to Brendan, 'alaska's great'

Rush says, 'yeh alaska kicks butt'

Rush waves a mother and child carved from whale bone.

Brendan says to Bart, 'if i happen to pop in that expansion of yours and die im coming for you =p'

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

Bart says to Brendan, 'bring it on big boy :)'

Brendan snickers softly.

Rush chants, "FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!"

Krynn says, 'is alaska far from the stag? i need a leader to get me to the far off lands of tara from there as it is'

Krynn ducks to the ground.

Brendan snickers softly.

Rush says, 'it's hard to find!'

Rush says, 'i find it quite ... not intuitive that you go south a whole bunch to get there'

Kaige wandered into the fabled northwest passage by accident one day... was like..'Cool!'

Rush laughs.

Rush cheers for Kaige - huzzah!

Brendan nods his agreement with Kaige.

Kaige was trying to get to canada... but took a wrong turn (or failed to)

Kaige looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'land scales here are a little interesting, for sure :)'

LadyAce says, 'it's like having someone playing with your zoom button as you walk'

Brendan says, 'oh i found a nice little secret hiding room last night ;)'

LadyAce thinks it's an interesting effect, really.

Rush says, 'I rely so havily on hunt it's sad'

Krynn says, 'i need to make a character with alot of moves, that does nothing but run around nekkid. i can explore everything that way w/o danger to my big characters'

Rush says, 'hunt'

Rush says, 'a level 50 creat that can cast naked'

Rush says, 'and hunt'

Rush says, 'that should do ya'

Krynn says, 'i don't need hunt'

Krynn says, 'autohunt slows me down on familiar stretches'

Brendan says, 'cant explore with hunt if ya dont know mobs =p'

Rush says, 'I usually don't use autohunt'

Krynn nods his agreement with Brendan.

Rush says, 'i hunted by hand into a dt once and that was enough'

Rush says, 'i use hunt to find my way back out :P'

Bart winces in sympathy with Rush.

Brendan is always using autohunt..

Brendan says, 'with no danger there is no excitement!'

Lorenzo says to Krynn, 'hunt is still useful even if you don't need it'

Lorenzo shrugs helplessly.

Rush says, 'the trail to your prey leads east. x East - SLAUGHTERED BY NATIVES! e'

Rush sighs at herself. What a sorry sight.

Rush says, 'a full set of old str gear and a bajillion strings'

Rush holds her head down and mourns the dead.

Lorenzo says, 'making up good autohunt triggers was kinda fun'

Brendan nods his agreement with Lorenzo.

Lorenzo says, 'so was making up the dt avoidance system'

Lorenzo snickers softly.

Lorenzo says, 'though, obviously, I don't use it'

Rush says, 'my head hurts thinking about how to code that'

Lorenzo says to Rush, 'not that hard, actually'

Rush says, 'say or script it i guess'

Lorenzo says to Rush, 'I thought it was hard, but then I discovered a shorcut :)'

Rush raises her eyebrow at Lorenzo.

Brendan looks up into the sky and ponders.

Lorenzo says, 'sorry, was afk'

Lorenzo says, 'if you take the approach of checking exits all the time, then it's hard'

Lorenzo says, 'but if you "remember" the locations of DTs by storing them in a map file, associated with room names, it's a lot easier'

Rush says, 'i dun think my client does maps, but i dunno'

Kaige goes and slightly changes all her DT titles.

Kaige whistles innocently to herself.

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

LadyAce says, 'well, you have to teach it to map then :)'

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

Lorenzo says, 'you just need hooks to catch all travel instructions -- n, e, w, s, u, d -- and have the room name next to the dt trigger changes -- so when you're in the savannah, "e" doesn't work'

Lorenzo says, 'not maps like that, those are hard and boring :)'

Bart says to Rush, 'and while teaching it to map you could teach it mccp :)'

Krynn says, 'zmud's mapper really doesn't like my running methods'

Rush says, 'it's confusing and hard!'

Lorenzo says, 'just associations, like "Overlooking a Really Tall and Dangerous Cliff" associated with "d", if down from that room is known to be a DT'

Krynn says, 'to make a map look right i'd have to not use * alises'

Rush says, 'and and also i might be upgrading to osx'

Bart smiles at Rush.

Rush says, 'so i dun wanna spend 20 hours fiuring out mccp for 9 and then have to change'

Lorenzo says, 'i dun know anything about mappers... don't use them'

Lorenzo shrugs helplessly.

Kaige says to Rush, 'tf is awesome to have running on osx'

Rush says, 'i might switch'

Bart says, 'well, with osx, just get tf with the mccp addition'

Rush says, 'is it free?'

Bart nods his agreement with Rush.

Kaige says to Rush, 'free and easy to install'

LadyAce says, 'and the promptinator!'

Lorenzo giggles at LadyAce.

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

Rush says, 'just when i got the hang of rapscallion lol'

Lorenzo models his tf scripts. VOGUE!

Rush says, 'oh did anyone say if tf is free?'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Rush says, 'coooooool'

Kaige says, 'just get the copy in help mccp that's for unix and compile it on osX'


Ransom Notes turned to "null"?

Brendan says, 'oh did ya get that bug i reported on the ransom notes i have that changed to null?'

Krynn gets null from Krynn from a dark sleeve.

Krynn glares icily at null from Krynn.

Krynn puts null from Krynn in a dark sleeve.

LadyAce says, 'oh, cuz I changed the vnum!'

Brendan nods his agreement with Krynn.

LadyAce nods to herself.

Krynn says, 'that was rather upsetting. i loved that stationary'

LadyAce will fix 'em if you like.

LadyAce says, 'or just buy another'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Brendan says, 'yes please :)'

Krynn says, 'you can buy em?'

Brendan says, 'i cant remember where i got em =\'

LadyAce says, 'yup.'

LadyAce says, 'OOC'

Brendan flops about helplessly.

Brendan says, 'its in ooc?!'

Brendan peers around intently.

LadyAce says, 'yes'

Krynn smiles happily.

Krynn puts a ransom note in a dark sleeve.

Brendan beams at a ransom note delightedly - such materialism!

LadyAce giggles.

Brendan says, 'well anyway i gotta go get some things done.. cant think of anything else..'

Brendan scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Brendan gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Brendan waves happily.

Kaige says, 'anyway... Ptah's home and hungry'

Kaige gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Rush hugs Kaige.

LadyAce smiles at Rush.

LadyAce waves good-bye to Rush.

Rush waves happily.

LadyAce waves good-bye to Lorenzo.

Lorenzo waves happily.

LadyAce waves good-bye to Bart.


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 Every now and again, I receive the message "You wound so and so with your critical hit" during combat. There is no helpfile on critical hits, and I was wondering what the message means, exactly.
Basically, you get a bonus percentage modifier on that hit and do more damage with it.
o Why does my secondary attack item give the wrong message? It looks like my primary weapon is doing the damage.
We have a bug where secondary attack items are showing up as their primary weapon's damage type for some reason. Rufus says this also happens for mobs with multiple attacks.
o Under help color string, it states that a single color string is turn on once, and turned off once Is there a limitation where during the string is it turn on? Does it have to be at the start?
There is no limitation on where in the string the color is turned on/off.
o Is bleh bleh |15bleh|7 still considered one color? Since I only turn on color once?
It doesn't make much sense to have a |7 at the end of the string as it would be naturally terminated with a |U6 and wouldn't affect anything beyond that. So yes, only using the |15 would count as one color unless something else came after the |7 in the string, then it would be two colors. Changing between colors turns one off as it turns another on.
o Can strings be destroyed when they are on the storage string objects?
If you mean through item damage or DTs, they should get restrung to a new storage item because the code recognizes them as being strung. If you are uncertain if something is a string or a zip-string or a normal mundane item, you can ask an immortal to check for you.
o How is possible for someone to dodge the stun spell while sleeping? Is that a bug?
Yup. Passed it along to the coders.
