PK Practice/Tourneys

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'quick before pk thing, tell me some info on the practice.. like.. how long it lasts.. is it just a replica mud or new spots etc?'

Kaige says, 'well, then I do better to load a group vehicle and string that instead of the chair.'

LadyAce says, 'just a couple areas from the regular mud'

LadyAce says, 'it's for practicing pk, nothing fancy :) just chaos'

Herbert says, 'true...'

Sandman says, 'well chaos isnt really practice =p'

Herbert says, 'next PK tourney we need to ditch the crappy paintball arena, half of what makes a good PKer is knowing the mud'

LadyAce says, 'it's a kind of practice. *shrug*'

Rosvenir peers around intently.

LadyAce says, 'PK tourneys are held in all kinds of areas.'

Sandra says, 'using the odd areas is what makes the tourney interesting'

Sandman says, 'poor noobs being slaughtered in chaos is hard to swallow =p'

Sandra says, 'puts everyone on equal footing'

LadyAce says, 'I haven't held one in paintball in particular, in ages'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Herbert says, 'but we shouldnt be on equal footings, our skills and knowledge should seperate us'

Sandman says, 'this man is a salesman for circuit city or best buy i swear!'

Herbert says, 'if someone knows nothing then they should learn, and fast'

Herbert snickers softly.

Kaige says, 'those who explore the real mud fully are at an advantage with their skills and knowledge'

Sandra says, 'I'd rather the equal footing in a tourney. Is why I made the building too'

Herbert says, 'exactly but nothing stopped anyone else learning and exploring'

Sandra'll shush now. ;)

Bart gives Jenna a great big smooch!

Kaige says to Herbert, 'yeah. I'm just saying it's not quite equal footing if it's not ireland and sherwood and klein'

Herbert says to Kaige, 'i wouldnt want those places either to be honest, wierd places that only explorery types like me go to would be nice'


Two Handed Guns

Sandman says, '2 handed guns!'

Sandman spits on the ground.

Sandman says, 'did anyone read my post and have something suggestion wise to throw in there.. or something other than what i mentioned and adding it wont change for a while'

Sandman points at Sandra.

Sandra says, 'I responded to it'

Sandra says, 'seeing as I'm the head builder, I responded to it as what we builders are currently doing with them. That is - nothing ;)'

Sandman says, 'aye you did.. but you stated what i already did.. and put basically no future intentions are in it etc'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Rosvenir chuckles politely at Sandra's feeble witticism.

Sandra says, 'no'

Sandra says, 'I said 'right now''

Sandman says, 'well the post was for.. are there future intentions we can get sooner than later!'

Sandra says, 'and I said there were none right now'

Sandra says, 'which is true'

Sandman says, 'to make them more appealing.. then a quickdrawing gun doing better and not even have to hold it'

Sandra says, 'I can tell you tho, that 1 handed guns do not do the same damage as 2handed ones.'

Sandman says, 'perhaps quickdraw is overpowered.. i dunno.. but its sad'

Herbert says, 'ok im kinda on Sandmans side of that what with being that my dexer was onea the people he tested on.. and 2 handed guns really should get some kinda benefit'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'on my testing they do 1-3 more damage with a 2 hander..'

Herbert says, 'far higher accuracy, or better damage or SOMETHING'

Sandra says, '2handed guns are better than 1handed ones'

Herbert says, 'not enough better for the 5 stats lost though'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'and if i can say.. max at 30.. and a 1hander maxs at 25.. so 5 point max higher damage.. not that great'

Israfel says blandly, 'Besides, they look more masculine.'

Israfel ducks to the ground.

Sandra says, 'I stand by what I said ;)'

Herbert says, 'theres a longbow I know of with better accuracy than a 2 handed rifle.. whys that?'

Tanaka says, 'no recoil on a bow?'

Sandman says, 'and that said bow does higher max damage too!'

Trinity smiles happily.

Sandman says, 'than any 2handed gun!'

Herbert nods his agreement with Sandman.

Sandra says, 'you should explore more then?'

Sandman says, 'thanks to fire =p'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'i hit every mob in indus up for guns to test =p'

Sandra says, 'not all 2handed guns are 'the best'. Just the same as not all daggers are q5'

Sandman says, 'unless your talking some low accuracy gun that has insane damage'

Sandra shakes her head.

Sandman says, 'since i skipped most low accuracy guns in testing'

Sandra says, 'I'm saying you should explore more'

Sandman snorts derisively.

Jenna comforts Sandman.

Sandman says, 'still im sure the cap is 30 max damage on 2 handers.. am i wrong? =p'

Sandra says, 'they're out there. You just gotta find 'em'

Sandra says, 'I won't tell you and you know that ;)'

Herbert says, 'spoil sport'

Herbert snickers softly.

Sandman says, 'exactly!'

Tanaka says, 'i want a cute little plastic bow they kick butt'

Sandra giggles.

Sandman says, 'and 5 points of damage doesnt cut it as being "better than a quickdrawing weapon"'

Sandra says, 'I'll tell ya what'

Sandman says, 'since quickdraw free's up a slot also etc'

Sandra says, 'you believe what you'd like. I know what i know. I'm the one that sees them all, you aren't. We'll see who's right ;)'

Israfel says blandly, 'This is the point where someone says that - well. We'll solve that then, by drastically reducing the damage on 1handed guns.'

Israfel grins wolfishly at Sandman.

Bart nods his agreement with Israfel.

Sandra shakes her head.

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

Sandra says, 'I don't plan on changing 1handed guns'

Sandman says, 'good reduce 1hander damage im fine with that'

Herbert says, 'id rather they did that than 2 handeds be wussy forever'

Israfel winks suggestively at Sandra.

Sandman says, 'hell reduce something or change quickdraw..'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'It was a thought!'

LadyAce says, 'Sandra's really pushing this exploration thing. Try it s'more.'

Herbert says, 'there should just be some competitive advantage to using a 2 hander is all we're tryin to say I think'

Sandman sighs loudly.

Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'if you're not sure where to look, sort back through old area update reports in the LT, see if there's clues'

LadyAce winks suggestively at Sandman.

Herbert says, 'oh we will, we will kill EVERYTHING in indus/lima and find whatever it is thats being hinted at'

Sandra does the 'explore the areas' dance.

Herbert says, 'and then we will rigorously test it and come back to whine about it next time'

LadyAce giggles.

Herbert ducks to the ground.

Sandman says, 'ok so sandra is hinting at some 2 handed guns that hurt.. that i havent found.. that do more than 30 damage?'

Sandra says, 'i'm saying you should E-X-P-L-O-R-E ;)'

Tim says, 'hmm try checking Paris some more, there's stuff all over that area that i never see anyone with'

Tanaka says, 'i explore lots'

Herbert says, 'we tried the guns there'

Tanaka says, 'thats why i have almost no equipment'

Tanaka does the DeathTrap dance.

Tim says, 'explore the dts too?'

Tim grins evilly.

Sandman says, 'do these "explore more guns" have any side additions i wouldnt mind seeing like stun % snipe % etc?'

Sandra says, 'well, not the dts ;)'

Sandra says, 'we can't do those'

Tanaka grins evilly.

Sandra says, 'it's not possible in the code'

Sandman says, 'you can too its not hard to code =p'

Israfel holds his head down and mourns the dead.

Herbert says, 'damn Spite had something to whine about today but I dont remember what it was..'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Another myth down the drain.'

Israfel laughs softly.

Sandman says, 'bah i can code it!'

Sandman says, 'and i suck at coding =p'

Rosvenir says to Sandman, 'for god sakes snipers already have enough of an advantage over most'

Rosvenir says to Sandman, 'stunning gun... eheheh yuk'

Sandman says to Rosvenir, 'only because dip is pathetically overpowered'

Sandra says, 'if it were possible to do that, then I'd want shoot to require an mv and/or mana cost'

Sandman says, 'do it!'

Sandman says, 'make me pay for better guns something anything i dont care!'

Rosvenir says, 'shoot should require mana anyways'

Sandra says to Sandman, 'hey'

Rosvenir says, 'it requires concentration'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Zen shooting.'

Sandra says to Sandman, 'EXPLORE!'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'can we move on I have a question'

LadyAce says, 'other comments on this topic?'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'so im gunna find a mana leaching gun eh?'

Tanaka says, 'make the dipped arrows have a chance of not affecting the person they hit'

Sandman giggles.

Herbert says to Tanaka, 'sinks take care of a lot of that'

Sandman says, 'certain eq helps too =p'

Sandman coughs loudly.

Herbert grins evilly at Sandman.. wonder what he's thinking...

Tanaka says, 'eye of the dragon'

Sandman says, 'ok ok more exploring.. pffffft'


Pure Fighter Additions?

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'I was wondering if anything is in the works to balance out pure fighters with regards to other classes.... is that a dumb question??'

Herbert says to Rosvenir, 'damn good question id say'

Sandra says, 'that's a good one actually'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'pure fighters at a horrendous disadvantage'

Jenna peers around intently.

Jenna says, 'what, they can hit stuff?'

Rosvenir chuckles politely.

Herbert says, 'they have been for a long time now, thus the additional attack weapons and other wussifying features'

Kaige says, 'the current problem is any boost to pure fighters also currently boosts everyone else who has any of those skills.'

Herbert says, 'make em look like they hit like cuch and it'll keep em quiet'

Israfel nods his agreement with Kaige.

Sandman says, 'uh.. ive seen pure fighters rip and cap with certain extra attack gear..'

Herbert snickers softly.

Jenna says, 'make the stat requirements on the skills insane?'

Herbert says, 'not if you make the bonus's Klein only and 100stat to use'

Sandra says, 'we're tossing around a few ideas. But I won't say more than that'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'can you at least hint'

Jenna says, 'like 60 or 80 con and 60/80 str?'

Kaige says to Herbert, 'but pure fighters don't only come from klein'

Sandra says to Rosvenir, 'not really ;)'

Bart nods his agreement with Kaige.

Herbert says, 'well they should because Klein is useless at the moment'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'The problem is that most of the additions that benefit pure fighters...can also be taken advantage of by, mmm. Well. C3 mages.'

Tanaka says, 'reptilian comes from tara'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'time frame??'

Sandra says, 'I don't have one'

Jenna giggles at Israfel.

Rosvenir sighs loudly.

Rosvenir nods solemnly.

Israfel says, 'Which makes for rather - ah - powerful combinations,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Jenna says to Israfel, 'not if you need 60 con and str'

Herbert says, 'if it was klein only the mythical klein bonus would be a REAL bonus and fighters WOULD all come from there'

Israfel grins wolfishly at Jenna.

Israfel says blandly, 'You'd be surprised.'

Sandra says to Jenna, 'oh yes, you can ;)'

Trinity says to Kaige, 'I think the recommendation here is to make fighters to Klein as mages are to Agrabah...at least, that's the suggestion I'd make'

Trinity scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Jenna says, 'ok 80 con and str!'

Sandra says, 'i can still do that!'

Israfel says blandly, 'You'd be surprised.'

Israfel winks suggestively at Jenna.

Herbert says to Trinity, 'amen sister'

Israfel nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandra jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Israfel!

Israfel laughs softly.

Trinity smiles at Herbert.

Herbert says to Jenna, 'victim is 100str/100con/90+dex'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'but you understand the need right'

Sandra nods her agreement with Rosvenir.

LadyAce says, 'boy, do we!'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'it's not something we're ignoring ;)'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'It's a question of players being disgustingly inventive and having too much time on their hands.'

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

Sandman says, 'is there something bad about 5 attack weapons too with pure fighters?'

Tanaka says, 'us'

Sandman says, 'it seems they hit inconsitantly with 5 attacks..'

Tanaka says, 'gah'

Sandra says, 'haven't really noticed'

Sandman says, 'which i think hurts the pure fighters a lot more than anything..'

Sandman says, 'they can cap one round.. then slash a few next rounds.. then come back and rip'

Rosvenir says to Sandman, 'I don't experience that with sss'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Tanaka says, 'reptilian does'

Herbert says, 'make a 'master weapons' skill as a klein only bonus that gives you extra attacks based on weapon weight.. thatd even things up a LOT'

Bart grumbles.

Trinity comforts Bart.

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Tanaka says, 'i find he hits harder when sitting down then when standing'

Herbert says, 'heavy sword = more attacks, wussy sword = slightly less attacks'

Israfel says, velvetly, 'Oh, I'd like _that_.'

Israfel demands a reimbursal of pracs.

Israfel ducks to the ground.

Jenna says to Herbert, 'say oh dear. bibi link'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandra says, 'I will tell you this much, if we did add in something, we'd make sure that anyone with chant couldn't get it ;)'

LadyAce says, 'well, you have to understand that the balance of the whole fight system is like a game of jenga with half the pieces already pulled out and stacked on top'

Israfel sniffs sadly at Sandra.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Good idea, actually.'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Rosvenir cheers for Sandra - huzzah!

Rosvenir says, 'that is a wicked idea'

Trinity says, 'A fight skill or two could always be made to be exclusive to Klein characters...'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Mmmm.'

Herbert says, 'chants fine, its 3c thats not'

LadyAce says, 'we can't just add new pieces here and there and hope that it doesn't fall down....'

Rosvenir says, 'as long as snipers are denied it as well'

Israfel thinks of variations to exploit it already.

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

Herbert says, '2c fighters from klein are still badass'

Sandman nods his agreement with Herbert.

LadyAce says, 'the last time we made it fall down, it took a good 6 months of work to rebuild, and the mud was no fun in the meantime'

Trinity nods her agreement with Herbert.

Lorenzo says to Herbert, 'thank you.'

Herbert grins evilly at Lorenzo.. wonder what he's thinking...

Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Trinity says to Herbert, 'But, why do that when you can do it in Tara..and use herbs...'

Trinity shrugs philosophically.

Herbert says to Trinity, 'for the 'mythical' klein bonus!'

Herbert nods to himself.

Trinity laughs.

Sandman snickers softly.

Trinity says to Herbert, 'riiiiight'

Herbert says, 'kick for .0000005 more damage!'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Herbert says, 'or whatever the hell it is'

Israfel says blandly, 'IF you land it.'

Israfel snickers softly.

Sandman says, 'secret question!'

Herbert nods his agreement with Israfel.

Tim nods his agreement with Silence.

Silence nods his agreement with Tim.


Klein Bonus

Herbert says, 'ok easier question in the same vein, does it exist?'

Herbert says, 'why isnt the 'klein bonus' documented much, help files are very clear on what each of the other hometowns bonuses are but klein is a mystery even the scooby team cant figure'

Herbert says, 'was my original question that i just realised i GT'd'

Herbert chortles with amusement.

Israfel laughs.

Herbert is only half sentient today.

Herbert looks like a plant.

Israfel shrugs eloquently.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't exist. '

LadyAce says, 'help klein_hometown is less vague'

Israfel says, 'From what I've observed, at any rate,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

LadyAce says, 'it's a % bonus to some skills.'

Herbert says, 'to hit or to damage?'

LadyAce says, 'I seem to remember it being damage, but I'm not a coder :('

Herbert nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'I can't remember either'

Silence says, 'Niether can i.'

LadyAce says, 'we haven't documented it because we're ashamed, ok? ok? happy now?'

Herbert says, 'ok so it is real at least...but the fact that 2 head imms dont know what it is exactly is a bad sign'

Israfel says, 'doesn't make a difference does it?'

Israfel says, 'no observable difference to hit, or to damage ;)'

Herbert nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'it's definately real. We just can't remember what it was ;)'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Nevermind what the percentage is.'

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

Herbert says, 'k ya answered my question...thanks gals'

Kaige says to Herbert, 'also helps when the coders clearly explain and document what they put in too... '

Herbert nods his agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce giggles.

Kaige says, 'otherwise I have to sit and try to read the code and figure out what they've done.'

Herbert says to Kaige, 'i understand its old its ok'

LadyAce says, 'I think you'd have the best luck searching old Q&A logs on the website'

LadyAce says, 'see if you can turn up some details from Ea.'

Sandman says, 'a cooooder!'

LadyAce says, 'we talked about it a lot, back in the old days'


Damroll Rent

Silence says, 'My question is about eq rent!'

Silence says, 'I have noticed that mages and dex fighters in particular have sometimes as low rent as 35K while any STR based character ends up having a rent of 49K'

Tanaka says, 'its all the +hit and damage stuff they rent'

Silence says, 'My question is why you'd want to single out STR or Dam eq as the renty stuff'

Sandra says, 'oh I dunno, I have str chars that rent under 40k =P'

Israfel says to Sandra, 'yes, but you. you're a mutant'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'battle druids of mine'

Sandman winks suggestively at Sandra.

Silence says to Sandra, 'Mb they have old eq, or they are freks'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Have some sympathy for us hit/dam addicts!'

Sandra says, 'or I'm smart ;)'

Israfel sniffs sadly at Sandra.

Sandra says, 'if you load up on hit/dam eq, no matter if you're str, dex or con, you're gonna raise your rent'

Silence says, 'So you say STr and dam eq is equal in rent?'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Although with just new gear these days, my str ones tend to rent at about 42-45k, and yes, they hit equivalently hard - compared to old eq.'

Sandra says to Silence, 'no'

Sandra says, 'I said that if you load up on hit or dam eq, you're gonna have high rent'

Sandra says, 'doesn't matter what type of char'

Israfel nods his agreement with Sandra.

Israfel snickers softly.

Silence says, 'But why? Why the extra rent?'

Huginn says, 'extra ability to hit and do damage'

Huginn says, 'it costs..'

Sandra says, 'you pay for your extra damage'

Lorenzo says to Silence, 'you think it should be free?'

Israfel has a dex mage that rents at 50.8k.

Israfel ponders his own existence - better keep an eye on him.

Silence says, 'But with the new system you get no more than 5 stats or 10 dam/hit rating'

Rosvenir says to Sandra, 'I don think the extra damage is significant between mages and pure fighters'

Tanaka has a dex mage that rests and 42k with chalice

Sandra says, 'I beg to differ ;)'

Tanaka says, 'eer rents'

Rosvenir says, 'I bet'

Rosvenir chuckles politely.

Sandra says, 'lemme say this'

Sandra says, 'I have 37 chars. I've tested just about all there is to test and then some. ;)'

Tanaka is completely boggled.

Tanaka says, 'and i thought i had alot'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'You need more alts.'

Israfel winks suggestively at Sandra.

Bart nods his agreement with Israfel.

Silence says to Sandra, 'was that a complete thought?'

Bart ducks under Sandra.

Sandra nods her agreement with Silence.

Silence says, 'the last 3 words confused me'

Silence says, 'But again my point about the new stat system should affect rent, the Herne's horn is no different from any 5 stat item why does it rent 4K'

Tanaka says, 'she has tested more than there is to test'

Sandra says, 'yes, it is different'

Silence says, 'how?'

Silence says, 'you sacrifice mind for dam rating'

Kaige says, 'because it doesn't care what your stats are, anyone can use it.'

Kaige says, 'and get an extra benefit from it.'

Sandra says, 'hitroll and damroll affect the damage you make. No matter if you have 30 str/dex, it still affects it'

Israfel says, 'at least there's a mind req now'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandra says, 'if it only worked if you had high str or high dex, then the rent would probably be different. But it doesn't, so it isn't'

Silence says, 'So if its accesible to everyone why penalize it?'

Sandra says, 'um, what part are you not getting?'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Silence says, 'nm'

Bart says, 'because "sopmething for nothing" is a eutopian ideal, and we may be many things but...'

Kaige says, 'it's a bigger penalty to those who don't get it naturally. and a bigger penalty the lesser the amount of it you get from it'

LadyAce says, 'it favors the people it's meant for'

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Lorenzo says, 'it seems like the general theme is, the more it can flex to your needs, the more it costs. straight +5 items tend to be cheap. you add hitroll or damroll, rent goes up because it fits a wider variety of interests. you mix stats,'

Lorenzo says, 'rent goes up, because it fits more needs.'

Lorenzo says, 'so it's pretty consistent, really'

Sandman says, 'but if thats true why are perma lights so cheap rent?'

Sandra says, 'would you like them to cost more? ;)'

Lorenzo says to Sandman, 'there's cost in carrying them. they use a slot'

Sandman says, 'noooooo!'

Israfel winces.

Sandman goes EEK! in distress.

Sandra says, 'ok then'

Sandra giggles.


Create Circle Differences

Menion says, 'ok my question is i was wondering why do 3c creates get to cast all the good charmies and 2c only get dop? i was just thinking 2c should be able to cast more'

Maleficia says, 'because 3c has to struggle more'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Sandra says, 'I think 2c does just fine, personally'

Sandman says, 'give 2c homo's!'

Sandman nods to himself.

Israfel says to Sandra, 'hush'

Sandra says to Israfel, 'don't they, mr 1billion guy?'

Israfel raises his eyebrows expressively.

Tanaka says, 'no point homunculus can't tank'

Israfel raises his eyebrows in mock dismay, 'How should I know?'

LadyAce says, '2c costs a lot fewer pracs'

Sandman says, 'they can porter which is fuuun stuff'

Sandra ruffles Israfel's hair playfully.

LadyAce says, 'and it's available to people who aren't as specialized'

Israfel flashes Sandra a rakish grin.

Sandman says, 'specially good with money running =p'

LadyAce says, '2c is supposed to be not as good as 3c'

Silence says, 'but 2c creates have no good PK spells'

Maleficia says, 'If i was 2c I could like errr ride and stuff as well as lightning bolt people'

Israfel says, 'The limitations of 2c do actually make you a better c3 mage,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Huginn says, 'also there are fewer stat reqs on 2c words'

Sandra says, 'could you imagine a taran with more than a doppel? C'mon =P'

Menion says, 'i know that but still i think they should at least get to cast something that they can make more then 1 of'

Maleficia says, 'take off dopps and give em homuncs THEN let em whine'

Maleficia ducks to the ground.

Sandman says, 'homies! im tellin ya give em homies!'

Silence says, 'Give them a good spell, a prep spell of some sort'

LadyAce says, 'they're not meant to be pure mage type chars'

Sandman says, 'everyone needs a slave now and then ;)'

Sandra says, 'most 2c creates don't need them. They're half mages. They have other specialties too'

Silence says, 'they can't just run on dopps and bliunding flash'

Huginn says, 'if you're a 2c mage, you're not just running on that'

Sandman says, 'dopps are powerful if you use em right..'

Sandra says, 'most are taran and augment'

Huginn nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandra says, 'especially in pk'

Sandman nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandman spits on the ground.

Menion says, 'i think homies would be good idea though too because ya don't see very many 3c with them cuz they use demons angels and such'

Tanaka says, 'have you seen altov'

Tanaka says, 'con 2c create'

Silence says, 'what about klein 2c?'

Sandman says to Tanaka, 'i killed him a few times..'

Sandman says, 'didnt take time to see him tho =p'

Lorenzo says, 'excuse me... heroes in high demand at the moment, I guess'

Tanaka says, 'yeah his doppel is not good in PK'

Tanaka says, 'but good in normal fights'

Silence says, 'what about klein sandra? You can't say, well oh most augment.... that's like saying all 3c creates are CON'

Sandman says to Tanaka, 'any doppel is good in pk'

Sandra says, 'klein has the ability to keep their stats at a min for spells and put them into other stats.'

Sandra says, 'for instance, it's pretty easy to make a 90+ dex/str mage from klein'

Silence says, 'Sandra 2c creates have nothing besides those spells, they could use a prep spell or an offensive spell or a healing spell.... ROOTS'

Sandra says, 'so they have hitting power, and some spells'

Sandman says, 'oh god roots..'

Silence says, 'roots kick ass...'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Ah yes, that. I'd very much like a choice on whether balm or roots are created.'

Israfel says, 'Although perhaps have that choice limited to c3 mages,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Sandman nods his agreement with Israfel.

Silence says, 'no that's stupid'

Sandra says, 'I think roots were one of the biggest mistakes we've made ;)'

Israfel says blandly, 'Roots are good for when you're too lazy to move and you're indoors and no one sells food.'

Israfel coughs loudly to himself.

Sandman says, 'aye roots were dumb'

Silence says, 'Roots couldn't be spammed'

Silence says, 'most you could have is like 6 at a time'

Huginn rolls around on the ground with laughter.

Sandman laughs.

Silence says, 'from starving'

Sandman says, 'no comment =p'

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Israfel is sure he's eaten more than 6.

Sandra says to Silence, 'I think some people disagree with you ;)'

Sandman nods his agreement with Israfel.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'And since they had a chance to heal for 50+ per root.'

Silence says to Sandra, 'Thanks, Mrs. State the Obvious.'

Israfel says, 'Admittedly the next one heals 10hp but still,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Sandman says to Israfel, 'the days of making bag fulls of roots..'

Sandra says, 'glad to help'

Israfel says to Sandman, 'with a chalice. isn't it wonderful to be thirsty?'

Sandman snickers softly.

Silence says, 'Ya chalice is what roots used to be'

Tanaka shoots a cute little plastic bow at Silence

Sandman says to Israfel, 'flavored chalice of cure light =p'

Sandman snickers softly.

Israfel gazes at Sandman, his silver eyes a-sparkle with mischief.

Israfel says to Sandman, 'used to be able to hyssop roots'

Tanaka says, 'looses the mana benefit'

Israfel says to Sandra, 'that, though, got fixed'

Israfel shakes his head in disagreement with Tanaka.

Sandra nods her agreement with Israfel.

Israfel says to Tanaka, 'dual slots on chalice'

Sandman grins evilly.

Israfel was just dreaming about the 50 hysopped root collection.

Israfel sniffs sadly.

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Silence says, 'so how many roots could you eat from starving?'

Tanaka says, 'hysopped?'

Sandra says, 'was 11, I believe'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Preservative.'

Silence says, 'So why was it a problem to change it to 6 or something'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'pffffft!'

Silence says, 'It still doesn't tilt the scales in PK, auggies heal for hundreds of HP'

Tanaka says, 'brb going to go shave off this stupid annoying goatee'

Bart cheers for Tanaka - huzzah!

Sandra says, 'roots were always a temporary fix when we took out cure serious. It was bad because it was an instant heal for the most part'

Sandman says, 'not all auggies heal 100+ hps =p'

Silence says, 'and cure crit or cure light aren't instant?'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'The problem is that these skills are all interlaced. If it's only available to _one_ hometown. (Ahem. Klein), then it wouldn't make augmenters and c3 mages more powerful.'

Sandra says to Silence, 'no'

Israfel says, 'But as it is...,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Sandman says, 'cure crit heals 60.. and a nice cost =p'

Sandra says, 'cure light is 10hp or so, with a lag'

Sandra says, 'cure crit is about 65 with a 2 round lag'

Huginn says, '3'

Sandra says, 'oh, 3. Sorry'

Sandman says, 'laaaggy =p'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Sandman says, 'eating food = no lag!'

Sandman says, 'eating food while in combat = harsh'

Sandra says, 'and the mana cost for the cause heals is current. Meaning you couldn't cast them, save them for later, and have full mana at fight time'

Silence says, 'but to make the roots it took lag'

Israfel says, 'which probably makes us all eat like barbarians'

Silence says, 'roots were timed too'

Sandman says to Silence, 'hardly anyone used roots on the fly'

Israfel runs off, hides in the corner, and wolfs down lunch while being pursued by a very angry hitman?

Israfel peers at Sandman, looking him up and down.

Huginn laughs at Israfel.

LadyAce says, 'I think we're going to go on to the next question, unless someone else has a further comment on this topic?'

Silence says, 'make roots last 2 ticks'

Israfel says, 'Yes, roots were more of premeditated murder,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Serk bows deeply.

Silence says, 'I always premeditate murder'

Tanaka says, 'much better'

Sandman says, 'tho premade auggies is.. well.. nasty =p'

Sandman peers at Silence, looking him up and down.


Ideas for OOC LIbrary

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'The ooc library.'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'I was tossing around some ideas the other night. And I was wondering if it would be possible or even worth it to ah, have a library somewhat like...'

Israfel flashes Bart a rakish grin.

Bart goes EEK! at Israfel in distress - isn't Israfel an awful person for teasing?

Israfel says, 'Bart's cafe menus, where you can ask for books by title,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'In addition, giving players the option to add books, rather than just posting.'

Sandra says, 'oh that's an awful lot of work to put the books down :/'

LadyAce says, 'I think that it's worth making additions to the OOC library -- it was Kae's project, and she examined some of those possibilities'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'So they can walk about (in the ooc at least) with the text instead of standing there being spammed by read next.'

Israfel nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandman says, 'ooh could add books about lop's too!'

Israfel says, 'However, I have no idea what the copyright issues are like online, and if I want to quote some author I like - if that violates copyright law,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Bart says to Israfel, 'you mean, make the boards etc in the ooc to be actual books that you request?'

Israfel shakes his head in disagreement with Bart.

LadyAce says, 'they'd need to be boards, to have much length to them'

Sandman says, 'hard core full descrips ppl can read and enjoy!'

Israfel says to Bart, 'just library'

Israfel nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'a fair number of classical works are in the public domain'

Bart nods solemnly.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Just an idle question. =)'

Israfel nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'The library as it is now isn't, I confess, appealing.'

LadyAce says, 'project gutenberg is the center of an e-text project'

Israfel nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Sandman actually sat on ramadan one night to listen to all the stories..

LadyAce says, 'the main issue we've struggled with is that the mud isn't exactly most people's preferred way to read text of any length'

LadyAce says, 'I feel lucky if people read a room desc :)'

Bart nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Bart sighs at himself. What a sorry sight.

Herbert says, 'i read em if its a new area'

Herbert ducks to the ground.

Israfel says to LadyAce, 'admit it, you're all afraid of this suggestion in case Jean comes back'

Israfel winks suggestively at LadyAce.

Sandman says to LadyAce, 'room descs i dont read much.. but if there were books to read about the area's etc i would read'

Tanaka says, 'i read em when i run out of move'

Herbert nods his agreement with Sandman.

LadyAce says, 'nah :) boards with short posts are manageable.'

LadyAce says, 'the nice thing about the mud is that on the back end, notes and boards are just little references'

Sandman says, 'bah books are cooler =p'

LadyAce says, 'the actual text is a separate little file, and so you don't have to write anything online if you have machine access'

LadyAce says, 'so you can cut and paste and presto :)'

Herbert says, 'thats cool'

LadyAce says, 'no line length problems, easy editing'

Sandman says, 'hey what you readin? im readin the becoming of a carnival merchant'

Sandman flops about helplessly.

Herbert says, 'so thats how welcome board posts are done?'

Israfel refuses to admit what he's reading currently.

LadyAce says, 'oh, I think those are actually cut/pasted'

Herbert says, 'always thought thatd be a huge pain in the ass to do'

Kaige says, 'I usually format mine in a text editor first then paste in here.'

Herbert nods his agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'if I have to go back and change/add something or fix hideous unreadable typos then I'll do it in the file itself.'

Tanaka says, 'in the 6 years or so i have played here i don't think i have ever written anything on one of the boards'


Bows & Dip

Serk writes in the air- since all bow went 2-handed, they have become much less appealing. is there a possiblity that they could be new bows implemented or any other changes to compensate for being 2-handed?

Sandra says, 'nope'

Serk writes in the air- that no was to me sandra i am assuming?

Sandra says, 'as long as bows have dip freely, bows are fine as they are'

Sandman says, 'ya know.. you could make new bows 1handed.. and make their ammo non dippable'

Sandra nods her agreement with Serk.

Herbert says to Sandman, 'good call'

Serk writes in the air- alrighty, just such a limited selectino of bows to choose from

Kaige says to Sandman, 'why? pigs can already be made to fly'

Serk writes in the air- at least good bows

You do a slow fade as Serk whines at Sandra, hoping he won't get to you too.

Shorkan says, 'or make the ammo on dib a shot..'

Sandman says to Kaige, 'yes they can'

Herbert says to Kaige, 'dont disrespect that analogy, i do that once in awhile..'

Sandman snickers softly.

Sandra says, 'btw'

Serk smiles happily.

Kaige giggles at Israfel.

Sandman says, 'dip needs to be a real skill period =p'

Sandman snorts derisively.

Sandman says, 'and needs stat requirements etc darnitall'


Barkskin & Fly & PK

Israfel says, 'if pigs are flying, they can't be barkskinned then?'

Sandra says, 'Fly will be a spell that we'll warn for if you get it from a non pk person for pk purposes. As far as I'm aware Haley's agreed to that.'

Kaige says to Israfel, 'I hear they don'tlike it anyway'

Bart nods his agreement with Sandra.

Israfel says to Kaige, 'Multitudes of relieved pigs'

Serk writes in the air- that is fair

Sandman says, 'hahahahah!'

Herbert says, 'oooh so Marauders gonna be droppin fly!'

Sandman jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Sandra!

Lorenzo grins evilly at Herbert.. wonder what he's thinking...

Serk writes in the air- either that or people will be blacklisted

Herbert says, 'hey wait.. that sucks.. heh'

Sandra says, 'he better :)'

Huginn says, 'or he could go AA'

Lorenzo says, 'yeeesss... exxccellennnnt...'

Sandman says, 'lets get marauder banned!'

Sandra giggles.

Huginn says, 'and trust'

Herbert says, 'i use his flys to hit xp rooms to level real fast'

LadyAce chuckles politely at Huginn's feeble witticism.

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

Israfel laughs.

Herbert slaps Sandman.

Israfel gives him 5 minutes.

Israfel snickers softly.

Kaige says to Huginn, 'I think that'd be fun.'

Herbert says to Sandman, 'Steerpike will take over if Marauder leaves'

Sandra says, 'I wanna see him bot that'

Israfel laughs.

Israfel says, 'Now _that_ would be diverting,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Tanaka twiddles his thumbs and waits for PK practice

Sandman says, 'boy ppl gunna have to get used to not getting fly's from him =p'

Sandman points at Herbert.

Herbert growls at Sandman. Better leave before the fighting starts!

Lorenzo says to Sandman, 'not really'

Herbert says to Sandman, 'just means a longer trip to the lotus eater'


ETA on Hell?

Serk writes in the air- how long until the new hell with be available, still a year or more?

Kaige says to Serk, 'when it's done.'

Sandra says, 'that's up to Kae. She's working hard on it'

Serk writes in the air- i dont doubt that, was just curious

Serk smirks at Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'it's reallly hard to estimate time to completion on areas'

Sandra says, 'it's a 300 room area'

LadyAce says, 'it's like asking a novelist when their book will be completed'

Sandra says, 'takes alot of work'

Serk writes in the air- i never get to see Kae to ask myself, so i was just wondering if any of you had any idea

Bart says, 'especially one as large as hell'

Serk nods his agreement with Sandra.

Kaige points to mudmail.

Sandman grins evilly at Herbert.. wonder what he's thinking...

LadyAce says, 'we generally don't know until it goes to testing'


Barkskin & Fly & PK

Sandman says, 'i didnt see any change posted on a certain room that acts like a safe room, tick timer doesnt count down etc, but you can be attacked in that room'

Sandman says, 'did it change? did i even bug it? not sure cant remember..'

Sandra says, 'what room?'

LadyAce says, 'not sure I can answer without more info? :)'

Sandman says, 'archdruids room'

Sandra looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'i can be shot inside.. but my timer doesnt go down..'

Sandra says, 'the timer doesn't go down?'

Sandman shakes his head.

Sandra says, 'the top room?'

Sandman nods solemnly.

Huginn says, 'one person room'

Sandman says, 'aye one person room'

Huginn says, 'that's why'

Sandra says, 'oh, I kinda like that actually'

Sandra nods her agreement with Huginn.

Sandman says, 'i still can be shot tho.. its not like its a tunnel room'

Huginn says, 'so if you can't be attacked by every class, it doesn't go down'

Sandra says, 'That's fine ;)'

Sandra says, 'I'll go with nobug on that!'

Huginn says, 'all that you have to fear at that point are snipers'

Sandman says, 'throw can get me out too'

Huginn says, 'only if you're silly'

Sandman peers at himself myopically.

Huginn says, 'there are other rooms like that.. that's not the only one'

Huginn says, 'and that's a feature not a bug :-)'

Sandman says, 'im not silly but throw still would reset my timer if i juggled last i remembered =p'

Huginn says, 'so? that's not getting you out'

Sandman says, 'im cool with it just wondered if its supposed to be like that =p'

Huginn nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'hide better ;) Ingame rooms shouldn't let you freely get rid of your tick timer.'

Sandman likes rooms he can hide in that arent impossible for ppl to get him..

Sandra says, 'lets make them all like that!'

LadyAce giggles at Sandra.

Sandra giggles.

Sandman says to Sandra, 'lets downgrade doors too!'

Sandman cheers for himself since no one else has.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'If that's so then the Challenge Wood should be changed.'

Sandra says, 'ok'

LadyAce chuckles politely.

Sandman grins evilly.

Israfel says, 'It's safer than ANY safe room, your tick timer goes down, and it's definitely not - Challenge,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Israfel flashes Sandra a rakish grin.

Sandra goes to change it.

Israfel cheers for Sandra - huzzah!

Israfel waits off everyone there so they can archive.

Israfel snickers softly.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Set a trigger for the gong and...'

Israfel potters off.


Skill trees?

AA-Aarington says, 'what are some of the skill trees and such currently in development'

Sandra says, 'none'

AA-Aarington says, 'areas we know, but skill tree updates are very rare.'

AA-Aarington nods solemnly.

AA-Aarington cries on Sandra's shoulder.

Sandra comforts AA-Aarington.


Housing Rent Not Being Charged?

Israfel says, 'Housing rent,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Why isn't it being deducted? Not that I mind.'

Israfel's grin is distinctly wolfish.

Kaige says, 'it is and isn't.'

LadyAce says, 'we keep crashing before it finishes'

Sandra says, 'dhole'

Sandra says, '!'

Lorenzo giggles at Sandra.

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Kaige says, 'some characters and clans are still getting it deducted... others aren't.'

Sandman says, 'aah so i was right..'

LadyAce says, 'it gets partway through the charging process, then breaks'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Ahhh, just mine and my clan's then!'

Israfel ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'so act as if you're going to get charged to be safe'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Israfel nods his agreement with Kaige.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Answered, then.'

Israfel smiles happily.

Sandman says, 'i knew it was a housing bug that was crashing every night!'

Sandman cheers for himself since no one else has.

Lorenzo says, 'back charges?'

Israfel shudders.

Kaige says, 'we're hunting for it, but it's not cooperating and not leaving cores, so it's being difficult to trace why.'

Herbert says, 'yeah the landlords gonna come knockin for his back rent'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'i try that.. its not working.. ppl just run away or hide'

Sandman peers intently at your unpaid debts.

Herbert says, 'kaige and her gang of thugs will roll up to your door and start kickin furniture round till ya pay'

Herbert says, 'slumlord style'

Kaige says, 'actually, once we find and stomp it, I'm going to go through and see who was charged and refund them... easier to do than figure out who wasn't charged'

Bart says to Herbert, 'nah, just me :)'

Israfel looks up into the sky and ponders.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'You'll just get shot.'

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

Lorenzo says to Kaige, 'lots nicer too :)'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandman says, 'i have a quick housing q..'

Sandra says, 'who do I get to shoot?'

Kaige says, 'but until then, assume you will get charged to be on the safe side'



Sandman says, 'tithe.. tithe.. tithe sucks'

LadyAce says, 'how's that?'

Israfel looks up into the sky and ponders.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'I like tithe.'

Kaige says, 'don't give your GM a reason to use it'

Kaige shrugs philosophically.

Herbert says, 'my tithe used to be odd and set itself to 100 seemingly at random'

Kaige says, 'if you don't like your GM using it.. get a new GM'

Sandman says, 'ive put in over 250k into my clan.. and um.. yeah i lost our clanhall.. and now ive put in about 200k more.. thanks to tithe =p'

Sandman says to Kaige, 'its not so easy..'

Sandman sighs loudly.

Herbert says to Sandman, 'it could be..'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'i rather like breathing thanks =p'

Herbert says to Sandman, 'blame me! im clanless and mean!'

Sandman snickers softly.

Herbert patiently twiddles his thumbs.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'although im this close to doing something.. anything..'

Lorenzo junks a skin of mead.

Sandman sighs loudly.

Herbert says to Sandman, 'gimme a few weeks to get my lil empty suit workin'


Privacy of Clan Channels

Sandman says, 'pk clan channels.. not that i dont trust yall imms.. but can we have them private from imms?'

Herbert rolls around on the ground with laughter.

Sandra says, 'no'

Sandra smiles happily.

Herbert says, 'thats not gonna happen..'

Sandman says, 'ive seen a few times where immies log on or log off due to content of my clan channel =p'

Sandra says, 'they follow the language rules, gotta keep them seen'

Herbert says, 'they like to monitor us sneaky treacherous pk types even moren most'

Kaige says to Sandman, 'then you need to take those instances to admin.'

Sandman says, 'do we just have to report abuse of imms listening then or..?'

Sandra says, 'if you're sure of that, report it. Most of us are pretty good at either turning them off or ignoring them completely'

Herbert says, 'they never expect the spanish inquisition'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandra.

Sandman says, 'well currently the one i have in mind stepped down recently =p'

Kaige says, 'and if you do it close to the time it happens, the easier it is to deal with'

Sandra nods her agreement with Kaige.

Sandman says, 'also.. can you imms still play pkers and have your imm online?'

Sandra says, 'yea'

Herbert says, 'they can nowadays yeah, i asked that a few Q&As ago'

Sandman says, 'aah..'

Herbert says, 'yeh...'

LadyAce says, 'we have to turn our clan chans off, though'

Sandman says, 'hmm'

Herbert says, 'and here i was all ready to rant like mental'

Herbert throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

Sandra giggles.

Sandman scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Sandra says, 'I usually totally ignore this window when I'm going to, or think I may, pk. So I dunno what happens over here while I"m over there'

Herbert says, 'but how do we know everyone is that virtuous'

Herbert ducks to the ground.

Israfel's silver eyes narrow in amusement.

Israfel says, 'You don't. Use gtell. Clan channels for gossip and insults,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

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

Herbert grins evilly at Israfel.. wonder what he's thinking...

Sandman says, 'well there are a few others i will investigate a bit more.. and if i find out ill let yall know'

Herbert says, 'sounds like standard practice for me anyway'

Israfel nods his agreement with Herbert.

Sandra nods her agreement with Sandman.

Herbert says, 'but i dont PK in clans often..'

Sandman knows of one off the top of his head that seems fishy..

Herbert says, 'my PKers clan chan is like a huge echoing hole most days'

Israfel snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'well, you need to provide information to the admin dept'

Sandra says, 'Personally, I use clan channel no matter. But then again, I work with these guys, and most of them I can kill up here too ;)'

Sandman says, 'aye that wont be a problem ;)'

LadyAce says, 'we don't let players make accusations of each other without evidence and going through proper channels, same goes for imm-mort stuffs'

Sandman nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Israfel says, 'there you have it, she's impeccably virtuous because she can kill everyone'

Sandman says, 'aye i wouldnt say anything unless i had proof or a big fat fishy smell irratating me'

Israfel cowers in fear of Sandra's wrath!

Israfel winks suggestively at Sandra.

Sandra giggles.

Sandra says, 'not everyone! most'

Herbert says, 'OH! question!'

Herbert bounces around.

Bart gulps nervously, hoping Sandra won't hurt him.

Sandra giggles.

Sandman says to Sandra, 'ever accidently shoot someone with your imm instead of your pker? =p'

Sandra says, 'no, coz I don't have snipers in pk ;)'


Another Game of Assassin

Herbert says, 'dya think we could bribe someone to run a game of Assassin again?'

LadyAce giggles at Herbert.

Kaige says to Herbert, 'I was thinking about that the other day.'

Herbert says, 'i lost real early last time, but i LOVED that game'

Sandra says, 'oh that reminds me'

Herbert says, 'and scarily enough it does kinda unite PKers a little'

Kaige says, 'trying to figureout the correct "time length" is the trickiest part for that.'

Herbert nods his agreement with Kaige.

Herbert says, 'last time it went for just about 2 months i think'

Sandman says, 'i want in on this one ive missed em all'

Sandra says, 'I'm gonna run one of my pk tourneys probably in march'

Sandman wants pk!

Sandman cheers wildly!

Sandman cheers wildly!

Kaige says, 'last time was a week.'

Herbert says, 'oh musta missed one :('

Herbert says, 'i havent played it in a year or so'

Sandman says, 'i missed the first ever one.. then was gone for the rest...'

Herbert says, 'oh i have another thread of conversation for Sandra in a sec too'

Kaige says, 'it seemed to work well, except for one person who didn't make the committment of logging in regularly'

Kaige has only run one.

Sandra nods her agreement with Herbert.


"Specialized" PK Tourneys

Herbert says, 'ok Stock Char tourneys, the fencing contest, does that apply to dex mages?'

Herbert says, 'cos wouldnt they kinda have a bit of an advantage there?'

Herbert says, 'or actually more of a question, do mages compete in the same contests as mere mortals'

Herbert ducks to the ground.

Kaige says, 'stock char would apply to everyone, cause you all get the same pre-made chars'

Herbert says, 'ohhhh not stock then, err the knight type ones'

Sandman says, 'we need stock char full druids =p'

Sandman says, 'for pk!'

Sandman nods to himself.

Sandra says, 'I dunno about any of those. Those are LA's thing :)'

Herbert says, 'i was just talkin about em with Wixen awhile ago and she was kinda miffed that blinding arrows counted in a fencing contest'

Herbert says, 'cos i like the idea of knight style games but mages/archers and stuff should be a whole contest on their own'

LadyAce says, 'I think I just called it fencing because of the skillset'

Sandman nods his agreement with Herbert.

Sandman says, 'i loved that archery shoot'

Israfel attacks 21 times and hits 20 times, stabbing you in the eye with his silver-tipped arrow, blinding you!

Israfel ducks to the ground.

LadyAce says, 'people were competing as dexies versus con types versus str types'

Herbert grins evilly at Israfel.. wonder what he's thinking...

Herbert says, 'we need more pk tourneys but less intimidation i reckon'

LadyAce says, 'the relationship between dex and perc is a little messy, but not many people do dex but use no perc whatsoever'

Herbert says, 'like PK tourneys anyone would feel safe playin in'

Herbert says, 'people are always scared off by big hard bity antisocial Pkers'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'It's more of the timezone.'

LadyAce says, 'I've had pretty good luck drawing people who aren't big pk types to tourneys.'

Israfel says, 'At least in my case. They're all at 5am in the morning for me,' in a musical, silver-edged voice.

Herbert nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'particularly stuff like gangwars'

Israfel snickers softly.

Jenna nods her agreement with Israfel.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'By which point even if I've stayed up...'

Herbert says to Israfel, 'me too kinda, missed the last one'

Herbert pouts.

Sandra says, 'the hard part in running mine is that i work weekends. So I have to find time during the week to run it'

LadyAce says, 'I tend to stick towards the hours when the stats say more pk types log in'

Sandman says, 'we need more mort run tourny's'

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'that and I work 10-7 M-F.'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Israfel says dryly, 'Which makes for the 5am slots.'

Israfel comforts LadyAce.

Herbert says, 'didnt used to be a problem cept nowadays im tryin to live a normal life'

Herbert pouts.

LadyAce says to Herbert, 'yea, you've gone soft'

LadyAce winks suggestively at Herbert.

Herbert says, 'no more mudding till i collapse and then wakin up to keep muddin 10mins later'

Sandman says, 'heh im back to my playing puter 20 hours a day habit =p'

Israfel says, 'well, it's more of a matter of having to, most unromantically, work'

Herbert says, 'i think i enjoy muddin more now tho, less spastic fits of rage induced by lack of sleep, life, fresh air, light, frustration'

Sandman says to Herbert, 'cuz we getting older =p'

Herbert nods his agreement with Sandman.

Jenna says, 'unless you can mud at work'

Jenna scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Herbert creaks quietly.

Israfel grins evilly at Jenna.. wonder what he's thinking...

Sandman says to Herbert, 'i havent had a "fit" in ages =p'

Sandra says, 'if i mudded at work, my patients would never get their drugs ;)'

Sandman says to Sandra, 'send em here.. i got so many drugs i can start a pharmacy'

Tanaka says, 'doctor sandra or nurse sandra?'

Herbert says, 'Sandras job is cool'

Sandra says, 'nurse'

Jenna says, 'mudding gives me something to do while waiting for things to build'

LadyAce says, 'any last questions for Q&A before we close up?'

Sandra giggles.

Jenna says, 'speaking of which.. has mozilla finished yet'

Tanaka says, 'oh yeah'

Herbert says, 'can we start PK practice early?'

Sandman says, 'yeah open the practice early =p'

LadyAce giggles.

Herbert says, 'i wanna whip Sandmans butt without fear of xploss'

Sandman throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

LadyAce points at Tanaka.

Sandman says to Herbert, 'hey i only have 10mil =p'

Herbert says, 'i lose it quick enough on my own :('


Photo Page Still Taking Photos?

Tanaka says, 'is the photo page on the mud homepage still accepting photo's?'

Herbert says, 'oh.. the fate of Straussys page..'

Tanaka says, 'just seems like it hasn't been updated in a long while'

Herbert holds his head down and mourns the dead.

Sandman looks up into the sky and ponders.

Herbert raises a single eyebrow above his delicate silver framed spectacles prompting Sandman for further information.

Tanaka says, 'or should i bug straussy'

Sandra says, 'I think that we need to find somebody to replace him since he stepped down. But I'm not sure :)'

Tanaka nods solemnly.

Tanaka says, 'ok lets start pk practice early'

Tanaka grins evilly.

Sandra giggles.

Jenna smiles happily.

LadyAce says, 'well, he only stepped down a short while ago :P after a period of mourning, we'll figure out another plan for it'

Tanaka says, 'ok'

Tanaka nods solemnly.

Herbert says, 'I wanna see a photo of Atrocity..'

Herbert drools contentedly.

Herbert says, 'shambling undead filth'

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Possible to add a complimentary character photo page as opposed to player photo page?'

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Assuming it does get looked into eventually.'

Kaige says, 'we already have one of those.'

LadyAce says, 'the char pages project is Choc's'

Israfel blinks.

Israfel says, mellifluously, 'Not char pages.'

Israfel looks up into the sky and ponders.

Herbert says, 'yeah but a side by side'd be funny'

Israfel says, 'just pictures, for lazy people'

Herbert says, 'char pic/player pic'

Israfel nods his agreement with Herbert.

Jenna nods her agreement with Israfel.

LadyAce says, 'could call that a charpage...make a webpage with 1 pic'

Israfel doesn't really want to do a whole _page_.

Israfel laughs softly.

Jenna giggles.

Israfel says, his voice darkly musical, 'Ah, this is one of those, take charge and stop whining at us for something things.'

Israfel flashes LadyAce an oddly incongruous, little-boy grin.

Israfel says, 'point taken'

Jenna says, 'i'd even submit a pic if we got a character pic page!'

Herbert says, 'actually i HAVE some webspace now! new ISP and stuff think i got 10meg i should use that'

Israfel nods his agreement with Jenna.
