Iron Will Changes?

Alashar says, 'Does the new ironwill thing affect other properties of warcry or just para?'

Huginn says to Alashar, 'just para at this time'

Alashar nods solemnly.

Alashar says, 'flee is the best :P'

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

Alashar says, 'then again my warcry doesn't do anything but make me look cool'

Alashar grumbles.

Huginn laughs.

Huginn says, 'oh well'

Alashar stands up.

Alashar screams, 'Rally to the King!' at the top of his lungs!

Alashar cheers for Golgotha - huzzah!

Alashar sits down and rests.

Fortebraccio snickers at Alashar nastily.

Alashar winks suggestively at Fortebraccio.

Fortebraccio says to Alashar, 'soon enough you can try it on me :)'

Alashar says to Fortebraccio, 'I'll fight you when barkskin changes weenie! :P'

Fortebraccio says, 'next update'

Fortebraccio winks suggestively at Alashar.


Why is Skin Nature Based?

El-Topo says to LadyAce, 'why does skin have a nature requirement? it seems really unfair that there's so many whoises that can't be had by londoners because of that'

El-Topo says, 'well, not just that. i mean, the lack of chant too'

Alashar shrugs helplessly.

Alashar says, 'to each their own, if they want to be a catman, whatever'

LadyAce says, 'well, you're not supposed to be able to get all whoises with all chars ... what you're able to do in life is restricted somewhat by who you are'

Alashar says, 'I think its stupid, but they can I guess :P'

Kaige says, 'your average londoner in victorian times wouldn't have the knowledge of how to skin anything, except make the cream off their milk.'

Alashar says, 'londoners can't skin ?'

Myrella laughs.

El-Topo says, 'yeah, but to be unable to remove an animal's skin? silly.'

El-Topo says, 'right, well, that's why we go learn these things ;)'

Kaige says, 'successfully without ruining it everytime? I couldn't.'

Myrella says, 'why does it matter? not like its that useful to need it'

Chocorua says, 'i could skin an animal but i would bet i don't personally know 4 other people who could'

El-Topo says to Myrella, 'i want the whoises'

Myrella laughs.

Alashar says, 'I know people who could'

Kaige says to El-Topo, 'you don't need the skill to get them I don't think.'

Kaige says, 'it's just more helpful if you do.'

Alashar says, 'but I live in michigan....deer are constantly skinned'

Alashar paces back and forth.

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

Chocorua nods his agreement with Alashar.

El-Topo says to Kaige, 'you practically do, though. i've been lookin for people with skin for a week and can't find anyone'

Alashar says, 'I have it!'

LadyAce says, 'raise the price? :)'

Chocorua says to Alashar, 'where as someone who grew up in downtown LA wouldn't really have that advantage'

Alashar says to Chocorua, 'unless they moved there trying to become an actor'

Alashar says to Chocorua, 'but not for the most part, no '

Alashar paces back and forth.

Alashar says, 'Damn, I keep hitting semicolon, crap'

Chocorua whispers quietly to Alashar.

Alashar says, 'but the argument could be made that even in skinnings heyday it was still a fairly complicated process and surely not even the majority could do it'

Alashar says, 'now in ancient times I might buy the majority knowing'

Alashar says, 'but I don't think everyone needs it, just playing devils advocate :P'

Huginn says to Alashar, 'the church abolished that position some time ago'

LadyAce says to El-Topo, 'I think we've answered your question by saying that we can't help you :/. Is there anything further we should talk about?'

El-Topo says to LadyAce, 'not as pertains to this'

LadyAce says, 'other than Keep Up The Good Work :)'

LadyAce smiles at El-Topo.

El-Topo chuckles politely.

LadyAce says, 'alrighty'

El-Topo waves happily.

LadyAce says to Myrella, 'your turn'

Alashar says, 'I didn't realize skin gave you so many whois's...'


Why is Stealing from Shopkeepers Bad?

Myrella says, 'why exactly is stealing from a mob so bad? what does it break?'

Alashar says, 'actually I wonder where he is...'

Kaige says, 'depends on the mob.'

LadyAce says, 'shopkeepers, it can make them not sell the item anymore'

Kaige says, 'shopkeepers it can break what's sold... until they reset'

Myrella says, 'well say i steal a banadge from dunno a mob that sells em'

Myrella says, 'reset how? die/ reboot?'

LadyAce says, 'it's a quirk of the way our shopkeepers work'

Lorenzo says to Myrella, 'a dozen people then jump you'

Alashar nods solemnly.

Myrella laughs at Lorenzo.

Alashar says, 'when its loaded basically'

Kaige says, 'they can't sell more until they hit their reset time... when they would come back from dead or restock'

LadyAce says, 'if they don't have a model copy, they can't sell the item. Even if they're stocked with an infinite supply'

Myrella says, 'Hmm still dont quite get it'

LadyAce says, 'it's like you take away their catalog and barcode scanner. They try to do a price check, but it turns into a big hassle, and you wish you didn't even ask for the item, and the manager comes over, and by now you don't remember what you wanted.'

Alashar laughs.

Myrella laughs.

Lorenzo giggles at LadyAce.

Kaige says, 'the way we tell them to sell an infinite amount is set up one way. But in order to sell one of anything, they have to have one on hand to sell.'

Alashar nods solemnly.

Chocorua says, 'that a pretty complex explaination of "if they don't have it they don't sell it"'

Myrella chuckles politely.

Myrella says, 'so would killing the mob let it sell the item again on repop?'

LadyAce says, 'killing or waiting until their repop timer comes around, providing their repop timer resets their stuff'

Myrella nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'since Rufus fixed the bug that was preventing it a while ago.. yes, but often times, killing them will take longer than if it just reset/restocked naturally'

Myrella says, 'hmm ok'

Myrella nods solemnly.

Myrella says, 'just was wondering thanks'

LadyAce giggles.

Kaige says, 'like killing Nell to get her to restock carrots is stupid as she resets MUCH longer than it takes for her to get new carrots "delivered"'

LadyAce says, 'sure.'


Bug with Recovering Stolen Eq?

Alashar says, 'last night Goin'fission happened to log on, and as you probably don't remember, he stole Craven's wad a while back'

LadyAce remembers.

Myrella nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Alashar says, 'so in an attempt to get it back, I found out he was ooc from the stag and proceeded to spam backstab goin in the inn'

Alashar says, 'he showed up give or take 12 minutes later'

Alashar says, 'very boring 12 minutes'

Alashar says, 'anyway'

Alashar says, 'I then got the message "You cannot kill other players without being pkill enabled."'

Alashar says, 'which seems like a major bug'

Alashar says, 'since he's holding my wad still'

LadyAce says, 'the wad may not be owned by you anymore....lemme check'

Alashar says, 'he then laughed at me and proceeded to go back ooc and mock me some more :P'

Alashar says, 'how is that possible?'

Alashar says, 'we were told years ago that ownership was permanent'

Myrella comforts Alashar.

LadyAce says, 'after 3 days, ownership times out'

Myrella smirks.

Alashar says, 'and I quote ea, "A thief does not gain ownership of stolen property"'

Kaige says, 'and you bugged it right?'

Sandra says, 'is Craven accepting him still?'

Alashar says, 'I talked to huginn briefly, I didn't bug it because I wasn't sure how to phrase it so it would fit in your most tiny little space allowed on bug'

Huginn laughs at Alashar.

Kaige says, 'don't worry about space.. if you get caught off, look and see where it cut off and type more'

Kaige rolls her eyes heavenward.

Alashar says, 'I constantly go over the max space in bug and idea'

Alashar says, 'I feel dumb doing that :P'

Huginn nods his agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'don't'

Zane says, 'I do it all the time.'

Zane says, 'And I have a new idea almost every day. :p'

Kaige says, 'I certainly don't think less of anyone who has to restart a line'

Alashar says to Sandra, 'actually, I found out about 30 minutes later that I wasn't accepting him, but that in my opinion shouldn't matter, I shouldn't have to warn him of my coming for him by accepting him to get my own items back'

Sandra says, 'is Craven accepting Goin?'

Sandra says, 'ah'

Alashar shrugs helplessly.

Alashar says, 'I don't really expect it back'

Sandra says, 'yea, it probably should still allow you since he has an item of yours.'

Alashar says, 'and in my opinion ownership is stupid, it ruins steal'

Alashar says, 'but if its going to be in, it should work properly'

Sandra says, 'problem is, I think that his archiving clears it'

Alashar says, 'how can you archive if you have stolen gear?'

Alashar says, 'sounds like yet another bug :P'

Myrella nods her agreement with Alashar.

Sandra says, 'that was my next thing'

Alashar says, 'sides'

Alashar says, 'I don't think he ever archived'

Sandra looks up into the sky and ponders.

Sandra says, 'well'

Alashar says, 'he's still at blood from the fight a year ago'

Alashar says, 'so he'd have a timer'

Sandra says, 'I'm at a loss then. Sounds buggy'

Alashar says, 'nod'

Alashar says, 'I know that, just making you aware :)'

Huginn says, 'I think its the fact that you're not accepting him.. the check is only if he can't reject you due to the item'

Huginn says, 'not from your side'

Sandra says, 'the pkok code is confusing enough that I'm not going near it ;)'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Huginn.

Alashar says, 'even so'

Alashar says, 'that message makes NO sense'

Alashar says, 'You cannot kill other players without being pkill enabled.'

Huginn says, 'yeah the message was wrong imo'

Alashar says, 'not "You aren't accepting them"'

Sandra nods her agreement with Huginn.

Alashar says, 'I logged it and just pasted that :P'

Alashar says, 'hey, another question related'

Alashar says, 'zandy, now almost a year ago, was going to look into the issue of him stealing that for crossplay and I never got told anything about it :P'

Alashar says, 'did that ever get done or did he forget'

Alashar says, 'wish i had the log I gave zandy...'

Alashar frowns at himself.

Sandra says, 'I don't know anything about that :/'

Alashar says, 'I was told at the time he was busy and was looking at it'

Alashar says, 'that was 3 weeks after when I asked at a q&a'

Alashar paces back and forth.

Alashar says, 'last I heard of it'

Chocorua says, 'i remember it but i don't remember doing any of the investigating'

Alashar says, 'basically he killed me and stole it, then chatted he did it because sammael multi'd him...'

Alashar says, 'but I don't have the log anymore'

Chocorua says, 'a year later it's probably beyond investigating...'

Alashar says, 'stupid zandy'

Alashar grumbles.

Alashar says, 'I knew he wasn't really looking into it :P'

LadyAce says, 'you have to be a bit of an advocate for your own interests. Waiting a year then asking again is a little lax :P'


Can we get Pets and Hirelings?

Alashar says, 'You should really consider allowing people to buy as choc put them "limited pets" like cooks in their houses that sell food'

Alashar says, 'I did'

Alashar says, 'I asked 3 weeks after and was told wait'

LadyAce says, 'ask every 3 weeks after that.'

Sandra says, 'pets are evil'

LadyAce says, 'that's what I just said :)'

Alashar says, 'its not really a pet though'

Alashar says, 'its a shopkeeper that resets in your house'

Sandra says, 'it'd still be a 'pet' and they're evil'

Sandra giggles.

Alashar says, 'you could even make it so only houses with "kitchen" type rooms could buy one'

Kaige says, 'pets/hirelings would use basically the same code tho and pets is easier to type'

Chocorua tried to explain this once

Sandra nods her agreement with Kaige.

Alashar says, 'I don't see how hard it is to put put a reset in :P'

Sandra says, 'Rufus tried to code them, and gave up'

Alashar says, 'plus, think of the game value!'

Sandra says, 'because the housing file doesn't work the same as others'

Alashar says, 'you could make it so if they are killed, they are dead permanetly'

Alashar says, 'it could cause clan chaos!'

Alashar says, 'break in and slay their servents'

Alashar throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

Alashar says, 'cooks cost 200k, if it dies you have to buy another one'

LadyAce says, 'well, the problem is that we don't have a way to write into the resets section. I dunno if that could be coded or not, I only know that we can't do it now without taking the mud down.'

Kaige says to Alashar, 'very hard considering resets aren't part of what gets written to that particular area file that saves player housing over startups, that has the possibility to change and shift every time it's written out.'

Alashar says, 'I suppose'

Alashar says, 'what about the area?'

LadyAce says, 'well, that we couldn't do ...once bought, the cook is yours forever.'

Sandra says, 'Rufus tried, really. It's a really hard thing to code'

Alashar says, 'what if you gave the cook an act that when it dies it erased the reset :P'

LadyAce says, 'would take separate removal code, to pull it out of resets.'

Alashar says, 'man'

Zane says, 'This isn't RPG Maker. :p'

Alashar says, 'I have a castle'

Alashar says, 'and no help'

Kaige says, 'acts can't modify anything that persists over a reboot right now.'

Alashar says, 'what kind of crap castle is that!'

Chocorua says, 'as easy as it sounds i'd say that is up there with rewriting the board system'

Myrella says, 'good help is hard to find :P'

Sandra nods her agreement with Chocorua.

Sandra shudders.

LadyAce says, 'wasn't sure what all he worked on, I thought what got him stuck was the work of storing more specific traits about the mobs, like learning skills and stuff. But I am really not sure'

Alashar says, 'exactly mryella, thats what I said yesterday :)'

Kaige says to Myrella, 'especially with the wages we can offer'

Myrella nods her agreement with Kaige.

Alashar says, 'I'd gladly pay 1k a day for a food seller'

Alashar says, 'I'd pay for a kitchen too'

Alashar says, 'what about acts that made the stove produce food? :P'

Zane says, 'They'd have to be really ridiculous, like 5k a day.'

Alashar says, 'if its 5k, whats the point zane'

Alashar says, 'all it does is sell food :P'

Sandra says, 'object acts are something Kaige has been working on slowly :)'

Kae says, 'object acts are an entirely different nest of evil?'

Alashar says, 'yes'

Alashar says, 'I'm uncovering nest upon nest of evil'

Zane says, 'If just a tea kettle is 1000, then a whole mob that sells food should be lots more. :p'

Kaige says, 'objacts are rather far off as well but we could probably sell stoves like the one in frisco and you could make your own'

Alashar says, 'my basin in our house rents for 1 and gives water :P'

Alashar says, 'to make your own though you have to have base materials'

Kaige says, 'yeah and?'

Alashar says, 'which defeats the purpose :P'

LadyAce says, 'water into wine? :)'

Kaige says, 'then make sure you pick a good location for you house so you don't have to walk too far'

Alashar says, 'in reality I don't'

Alashar says, 'the cook in crusades is like 5 rooms away'

Alashar says, 'just annoying :P'

Sandra giggles.

Kaige says, 'awwww.'

Alashar says, 'listen'

Alashar says, 'I want to spend MORE money'

Alashar says, 'you should be happy!'

Myrella laughs.

Kaige says, 'I want pets and hirelings too.. but they're not going in any time soon.'

Alashar says, 'I don't care about pets'

Alashar says, 'I want shopkeeper to sell me food :P'

Dow tips his hat gallantly.

Kaige says to Alashar, 'I'm going to type this VERY slowly...'

Kaige says to Alashar, 'it's'

Alashar says, 'I know'

Alashar says, 'you consider them the same'

Kaige says to Alashar, 'the'

Alashar says, 'I don't!'

Kaige says to Alashar, 'SAME'

Alashar says, 'no matter what you say!'

Kaige says to Alashar, 'CODE'

Huginn nods his agreement with Kaige.

Dow says to Kaige, 'what was that?'

Dow ducks to the ground.

Dow snickers softly.

Alashar says to Huginn, 'your invincible, fix it'

Huginn laughs at Alashar.

Alashar says to Huginn, 'do it champion'

Zane says to Alashar, 'Relax. You're headed the right direction for a slayin'. :p'

Alashar cheers for Huginn - huzzah!

Alashar says, 'pfff, slay'

Huginn says, 'yeah me.. invincible.'

Alashar says, 'you don't even lose hp'

Zane says, 'Yeah, but it's embarrassing.'

Zane snickers softly.

LadyAce says, 'Essentially, it's something we'd like to offer but can't right now, not until someone has the time and energy to do it.'


Changes for Cause Charmies?

Myrella says, 'how come skeletons and zomnies dont go poof when their creator leaves? I was really annoyed by the number in klein last night'

Kae says, 'skeletons do'

Alashar says, 'I think skeletons do'

Sandra says, 'skeletons do, zombies probably should'

Chocorua says, 'yeah they should'

Chocorua says, 'on a timer atleast'

Huginn nods solemnly.

Myrella says, 'and 2 why the hell can cause mage s make so damn many? it disgusting'

Alashar says, 'I think its mind / 10 isn't it?'

Kae says, 'actually, they can't make that many'

Sandra says, 'they have a limit just like creates do'

Myrella says, 'they should be alowed 1 maybe 2 tops'

Huginn nods solemnly.

Kae says, 'some 10-ish for my 100 mind cause'

Kae says, 'including charmed weapons etc'

Dow says, 'isn't it something along the lines of they lose control of them and make more, but they don't leave'

Myrella says, 'gee must be rough havin 10 500 hp tanks'

Alashar says, 'skeletons are pretty darn evil...like infinate dopples'

Chocorua says, 'they have to kill the mobs first though so having a few isn't unreasonable'

Alashar says, 'but they are harder to get'

Alashar says, 'but its kind of a chain reaction, once you get the first 2, the next 2 are that much easier to get'

Huginn says, 'and they cost more mana'

Myrella says, 'hard to get one?'

Myrella laughs.

Huginn says, 'double isn't it?'

Alashar says, 'not illusions though'

Alashar says, 'so another bonus'

Alashar says, 'only option that isn't an illusion for creates has summoning lag and has 200 mana'

Sandra says, 'ok zombies poof now too'

Huginn cheers for Sandra - huzzah!

Myrella says, 'good atleast its something'

Myrella says, 'still sad seeing cause mages with 5 and 6 of the silly things though'

Myrella shrugs philosophically.

Dow says to Myrella, 'I saw all those zombie too the other night, I think it might have been a couple causes battling for fundraising'

Dow says, 'klein is like a bank'

Dow snickers softly.

Myrella says, 'if they want damn charmies go create, we are sad enough as it is :P'

Alashar says, 'look at the bright side myrella, you get better holders'

Myrella chuckles politely.

Myrella says, 'yeah maybe'

Chocorua says, 'i like my create :('

Alashar says, 'btw, I don't know if its a bug or a feature, hoping its a feature that doesn't get removed because its a genius idea, but whoever made it so people (and charmies) can sleep on group boats and still move wins'

Myrella says, 'I do too but :P'

LadyAce points at Zane.

Kae loves her create.

Sandra says, 'feature, Ark did that best I remember'

Alashar chortles with amusement.

Alashar says to Sandra, 'thats been in since ark? Wow...'

Sandra nods her agreement with Alashar.


Area Progress?

Zane says, 'How's that London expansion coming?'

Sandra says, 'slowly'

Sandra says, 'Leila works on it when she can'

LadyAce says, 'When new work is published to the machine, a notice goes into the LT'

LadyAce says, 'you could track it from watching the posts on the LT, if you like'

Zane says, 'I understand that. I'm just wondering if it's still being worked on, or if it's officially on hiatus.'

Chocorua says, 'i think i saw a commit not TOO terribly long ago'

Kae says, 'not all builders publish every little fiddling. Some prefer to upload larger chunks. If you've seen a report the last months, presume it's in the works.'

Sandra says, 'it's being worked on still'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kae.

Alashar says, 'think we'll see an area or expansion this year?'

Sandra says, 'hopefully'

Alashar says, 'it has been awhile, hope so too'

Zane says, 'That would have been my next question.'

Kae says, 'I'm still trying to win my bet, but don't make hotel reservations just yet'

Alashar says, 'what bet'

LadyAce says, 'I surely hope so. Sandra will hang me if I don't get klein off my chest sooner or later'

Alashar says, 'by xmas ?'

Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Sandra giggles.

Huginn says to Kae, 'what bet?'

Kae says, 'the one where I get Hell into the mud this year?'

Alashar says, 'cool'

Huginn cheers for Kae - huzzah!

Kae says, 'as I said, don't make reservations just yet'

Zane says, 'The year's almost half over. Chop-chop!'

Zane snickers softly.

Kae says to Zane, 'you have to remind me?'

Alashar says, 'how long ago did hell get yanked 2 ?'

Lorenzo says to Alashar, 'september 2000'

Alashar says, 'yea'

Myrella chuckles politely.

Alashar says, 'sounds right'

Dow holds his head down and mourns the dead.

Myrella smiles happily at a small black mug.

Zane says, 'My offer to assassinate Flagg still stands. All I ask in return is the old Hell back.'

Alashar laughs.

Zane grins evilly.

Sandra says, 'the old hell isn't coming back :)'

Kae says, 'what, so I lose 2 1/2 year of work?!'

Alashar says, 'poor misguided and convused flagg'

LadyAce says, 'Nah. We don't want it. We want Larderello.'

Dow says, 'hehe immorts dream up all new hells for us'

Dow snickers softly.

Huginn nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Alashar says, 'sandra makes hell all the time'

Alashar says, 'theres already a hell kae'

Sandra says, 'I try'

Zane says, 'You're right. To hell with Flagg. The new Hell is going to be better.'

Zane says, 'I can feel it. In me bones.'

Huginn says to Alashar, 'and so do you.. mortal!'

Alashar says, 'go try to solo dimmesdale without charmies or augment!'

Alashar says, 'he's fun!'

Sandra giggles.

Kae says, 'well, in fairness I can't judge if it's 'better' -- it uses much new code and is more up to par with the system'

LadyAce says to Zane, 'does that cover what you were wondering?'

Zane says, 'Yeah, I'm just getting antsy... I love London...'

Zane sniffs sadly.

LadyAce nods solemnly.


Suckerpunch and Blindside Comments

Myrella says, 'I want to offer thanks this time'

Myrella says to Sandra, 'thank you for making the suckerpunch special go off more I actually notice it now'

Sandra giggles.

Sandra says, 'sure =)'

Myrella beams delightedly.

Myrella throws her arms around Sandra and hugs her enthusiastically.

Chocorua says to Sandra, 'yeah i like suckerpunch too'

Sandra says, 'it's fun!'

Alashar says, 'I'm partial to blindside'

Alashar says, 'suckerpunch always gets blocked...'

Alashar says to Sandra, 'Did you fix blindside?'

Sandra says to Alashar, 'what's wrong with it?'

Alashar says to Sandra, 'you said it should last more then 1 tick last week and said you'd look into it'

Sandra says, 'oh damn. I forgot.'

Sandra says, 'I got hung up on dress wound'

Sandra giggles.

Alashar says, 'woo hoo, imm made a mistake!'

Kae says, 'another brillant example of why the idea channel is your friend'

Dow hands Sandra the flogging stick.

Alashar says, 'I think I did idea it'

Alashar says, 'because I think she asked me to'

Sandra says, 'yea you did'

Kae claps for Alashar approvingly.

Alashar says, 'but I don't remember'

Kae says, 'then it's on someone's todo at least'

Alashar says, 'not if they cross it off and forget to do it!'

Alashar says, 'then its gone forever!'

Chocorua says, 'yep document document document'


Changes for Barkskin?

Alashar says, 'now that barkskin is self only, will it be changed at all to stay useful or be added to the pile of junk spells ?'

Sandra says, 'I believe the barkskin change is a temporary one while we discus other stuff'

Alashar says, 'does that mean you want to change its function?'

Myrella says, 'byebye jawbones'

Alashar says, 'but haven't decided how?'

Alashar says to Myrella, 'nah, it'll still be popular, that hit is hard to beat'

Myrella nods her agreement with Alashar.

Sandra says, 'it means that we wanna change it but don't know how'

Chocorua says, 'i thnk we are discussing making it more like it was but with restrictions'

Alashar nods his agreement with Sandra.

Alashar says to Sandra, 'thats cool'


LoP Mobs and Cheating Skill lag?

Myrella says, 'ah goody, are LoP mobs allows to cheat skill lag? or no?'

Myrella grumbles.

Sandra says, 'I'm slow on fixing them'

Alashar chortles with amusement.

Sandra says, 'been kinda busy with coding stuff :)'

Myrella says, 'well Sylia needs it'

Myrella nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'if it's sylia, it's more historically accurate if she's cheating'

Kaige ducks to the ground.

Sandra snickers at Kaige nastily.

Myrella says, 'well then let me be able to dispel her Detect illusion then too :P'

Sandra says, 'you can if you get past her sink'

Myrella looks up into the sky and ponders.

Myrella says, 'hmm thought I had'

Myrella shrugs philosophically.

Myrella says, 'ah well next time then'

Sandra says, 'it's not perm, if they're mages, they cast it'

Alashar says, 'sylia is simple'

Alashar says, 'you just have to know nice fun tricks :P'

Myrella nods solemnly.

Dow says, 'how come some of them don't show up with aura sight then?'

Sandra says, 'I dunno'

Dow says, 'I have seen that a bit, didn't think to bug it or anything'

Alashar says, 'LoP's should be harder'

Huginn says, 'Barabas should be more than just a name.'

Alashar says, 'make them be like players in that they ALWAYS special every 2 rounds'

Alashar says, 'that alone would make them tougher'

Myrella waves happily.

Kaige says to Huginn, 'yeah.. he shoudl be awesome too'

Alashar says, 'if they are real replica's, I'm sure they special'd all the time'

Huginn nods his agreement with Kaige.

Alashar says, 'I never fought or knew barabas'

Huginn says to Kaige, 'like some other people!'

Alashar says, 'he was before my time'

Dow says, 'Is there a reason why Hunter Rose really doesn't have remarkable eq?'

Sandra says to Alashar, 'well, theoretically, they should'

Chocorua says, 'malorn is already lots harder'

Sandra says to Dow, 'not all of them have stat eq'

Alashar says, '99% do'

Dow says, 'I know that, but is there reasoning behind it, just curious'

Sandra shakes her head.

Alashar says, 'he became an imm and didn't do enough, so his is his punishment :P'

Sandra says, 'he didn't want any'

Dow says, 'I like his suit, I may mundane it to fit my lawyer role'

Dow snickers softly.

Sandra giggles.

Alashar says, 'I like using his bag'

Alashar says, 'because people freak out and don't know what it is'


Updates for June?

Alashar says, 'can we have a clue which area gets touched up in june?'

Sandra says, 'um, ancient ones'

Kaige says, 'hopefully all ancient ones'

Alashar says, 'its all?'

Kaige says, 'ideally. yeah'

Alashar says, 'I thought you usually picked one'

Chocorua says, 'we try to do all i think'

Kaige says, 'I usually pick one or two to focus on each month, but I do try to make sure all of them get touched'

LadyAce says, 'all should get touchups, some get larger updates though'

Alashar says, 'use special care on nazca'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Alashar says, 'its the area I'd love to like...but just can't do it'

Sandra says, 'maybe klein will be ready for the medieval month'

Sandra stares off into space.

Alashar grins evilly.

LadyAce says, 'here's hoping'

Chocorua says, 'nazca is useful'

Huginn nods solemnly.

Alashar says, 'I want to like it'

Alashar says, 'theres just something missing...'

Huginn says, 'nazca isn't bad'

Alashar says, 'but I don't know what :('

Kaige says, 'I haven't really thought about ancient yet.. trying to wrap up a couple industrial things atm.'

Alashar says, 'maybe its all the annoying directions I don't know'

Kaige laughs.

Alashar cheers for Kaige - huzzah!

Kaige says, 'like the ones in Lima, eh?'

Alashar says, 'I thought indus was hated by all builders'

LadyAce says, 'I like Kaige's update of the week thingy'

LadyAce says, 'so Kaige, do that!'

Kaige says, 'remind me?'

Kaige says, 'I'm brain dead'

LadyAce says, 'your thing about updating on a particular theme'

LadyAce says, 'like, everyone put in X feature this week'

Kaige says, 'oh. the mission thing'

LadyAce says, 'right, mission!'

LadyAce nods to herself.

Kaige says, 'yeah. I started looking into that.. got sidetracked'

Kaige scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Chocorua says, 'kaige was pretty much the only one who DID those though'

Chocorua says, 'and she does far more than her share already now'

Kae says, 'ayup'

Huginn will agree to that.

Sandra nods her agreement with Chocorua.

Kaige says, 'may be less this summer... depends on how things go and when things happen'

Kaige grumbles.

LadyAce says, 'all I'm saying is I found it useful. I updated my stuff to go along with it, and felt more motivated to make changes into areas not my own so that the mission could be completed.'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Kaige will have to find better missions this year... ones that take more time to fix, than to describe and layout

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

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

Kaige waves happily.

LadyAce waves happily.


Additional Topics Answered

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

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


General Suggestions/Questions

o We should have a "donate command" (for lack of a better phrase) -- type "donate [item]" and it sends the item to the nearest lost and found box -- I realize this could be abused, but maybe it would encourage people to "donate" items.
We really prefer the gains we get from having people actually have to walk to the inns where other people gather to donate things. It's much nicer when you have a chance to interact with other players.
o Scan spell.
Again... we prefer the gains we get by not having one character type completely self-sufficient with every ability. Go hire someone who can!
o A social of 'propose' proposes to you, type thing.
Wouldn't that be much nicer and more sincere if each person who wanted to use it, came up with their own way of expressing themselves?
o There should be a social for crossing your fingers, as if for luck. 'cross ' does that Catholic thing... which is just bizarre.
VIEW SOCIAL LUCK. That should cover what you're looking for.
o Filling your cantainer should automatically look for source so you dont have to type fill (container) (source).
o Typing 'clans RP' generates so much spam as to sever one's link.
SCREENLEN is your friend. This is what breaks up large blocks of spam and forces you to hit return to continue reading the rest of it.
o I did not get xp for the ...once helped a witch regain her youth and beauty quest.
Not all quests are experience granting quests.
