Bug with Stunning Headbutts

Cheap says, 'headbutt, why is it that any joe with 40 con can wake from a double stun before people with near 100 con?'

LadyAce says, 'I think waking from stun depends on more than just plain con.'

Cheap says, 'ohh?'

Cheap says, 'its a con skill that I am using, what more is involved?'

Myrella says, 'luck!'

Cheap says, 'lets put it this way'

Cheap says, 'why is it that stat/high mind cause mages, weather str or dex always wake up from a double stun in pk then not only myself but at least another alt of mine?'

Cheap says, 'are you going to tell me that its just mere luck that every single time they wake before numerous characters?'

LadyAce says, 'success is based on the con/con comparison, but waking up has other parameters (for hb)'

Cheap says, 'ok, can I ask that these parameters be looked at? I hardly find it fair to spend stat points into con to have anyone, exspecially someone with 30 to 40 con wake before I do every time'

LadyAce says, 'You definitely can.'

Kaige says, 'it is something that keeps coming up over and over again... so I'm not sure it's just perceptions, but we can take a look at it again and see if we see anything odd with it.'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Cheap says, 'thank you'

Cheap smiles happily.


Ranges too Random on Homunculi?

Myrella says, 'How come move on Homunculus is soo bloody random? I got one with 29 move the other day then the next one had 266 move'

Myrella says, 'It really annoying that it not more consistant'

LadyAce says to Myrella, 'you could drop a bug report on that, I don't think I've heard that before.'

Myrella nods solemnly.

Myrella says, 'it was rather disturbing'

LadyAce says, 'the only thing I can think is that it's based on some trait of yours that was superlow at the time'

LadyAce says, 'but if it was right after, that'd be weird.'

Kaige says, 'homunculus move -- it all depends on the caster... yes it's random within a range'

Myrella says, 'sure but 29 to 266?'

Robar says, 'not even a factor 10'

Myrella says, 'I know my cast level sucks but I do have 100 mind'

LadyAce says, 'turn it in as a bug report, stir up some sympathy :)'

Kaige says, 'are their hp fluctuating as wildly too?'

LadyAce smiles at Myrella.

Myrella says, 'Umm a bit but not as much'

Myrella says, 'I do get the odd 4 hp one'

Cheap says, 'I don't think as badly as their moves if I remember correct on my create'

Kaige nods solemnly.


Cause Charmies vs Create Charmies?

Cheap says, 'cause mages and their charmies, ie skels and zombies, ive noticed that these little creatures heal very quickly and I thought about it in comparison to create mages and all there changes'

Cheap says, 'I think its outta whack personally'

LadyAce says, 'mobs heal on a different schedule than players, but not faster really'

Cheap says, 'for the mana cost and such, how cause charmies stick around for almost ever'

LadyAce says, 'they heal at tick, all at once, and you heal during the tick, bit by bit.'

LadyAce says, 'they also don't get hungry or thirsty'

Myrella says, 'What do hungry skeletons eat?'

Cheap says, 'right, but cause mages have so much, it just didn't seem fair that they should have their charmies heal just as quick as create's charmies'

Robar says, 'is it me or dont create mages have ways of speeding up healing?'

Huginn says, 'their charmies don't generally do as much damage'

LadyAce says, 'heal rate is just one formula, really. It's a lot of overhead to have different formulas'

Huginn says, 'or have specials'

Cheap says, 'true enough'

Huginn says, 'and most of them lack the ability to carry anything'

Huginn shrugs helplessly.

Cheap says, 'but they also spend the mana, have to deal with the weather and low mind does not alter cause as much on skels/zombies/dancing sword as much as a create'

Cheap says, 'but again, this is just a personal thought'

Chocorua says, 'creates get a much wider set of choices'

Myrella says, 'cause charmies are way too good anyways'

Myrella shrugs philosophically.

Huginn says, 'additionally I believe create can control more of them'

LadyAce says, 'we try to keep a balance between cause and create on a broad scale -- we want them to be different but both playable & interesting -- not equivalent to each other in every way.'

Myrella says, 'then yank cause charmies they dont need em, they've got so much more already'

Myrella shrugs helplessly.

Myrella says, 'well yank raise dead dont mind dancing weapons'

Myrella says, 'atleast they are different'

Chocorua says, 'so we can hear how cause sucks compared to create? hehe'

LadyAce says, 'does that cover the question, though?'

Myrella says, 'not likely, atleast create will be better in one area finally'

Dias-Jax says, 'Create I believe has the higher damage spells, lightning bolts somewhat painful'

Dias-Jax scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

Kurgan chuckles politely.

Robar says, 'create mages are much better at cooking, that have to be good!'

Myrella grins evilly at Robar.. wonder what she's thinking...

Cheap says, 'cause have the higher damage spell in game, watery death I do believe'

Dias-Jax says, 'hm...lightning bolt always seemed to hurt more'

Dias-Jax says, 'Robar beats me faster on water than Cell used to'

Dias-Jax winks suggestively at Robar.

Cheap says, 'go pke and come join me on the water :)'

Myrella says to Dias-Jax, 'go stand in a house :)'

Lorenzo says, 'also create mage spellwords sounds more pleasant to the ear than cause mage spellwords'

Dias-Jax grins evilly.

Dias-Jax says, 'Ive stood in houses, I get walled in :P'

Lorenzo says, 'qed!'

Chocorua says, 'also cause charmies aren't as dependable'

Cheap says, 'ohh?'

Chocorua says, 'yeah you can't always get them'

Robar nods his agreement with Lorenzo.

Cheap says, 'I guarentee you that my cause army can do just as much as a create army'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Chocorua.

Lorenzo says, 'lazy and shifless!'

Robar says to Lorenzo, 'and we smell better'

Chocorua says to Cheap, 'good, there is some balance then'

Cheap says, '1 tank and 4 saebels with a limn on the target'

Robar says to Lorenzo, 'just as our charmies'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Robar.

Cheap says, 'they take things out fast'

Huginn says to Cheap, 'you summon your army out of thin air?'

Cheap says, 'course not'

Huginn says to Robar, 'how about you?'

Dias-Jax chortles with amusement.

Cheap says, 'I wfw a guard and kill him in 3 rounds :p'

Myrella says to Huginn, 'making one lousy corpse is not hard, no matter how bad the char'

Robar says, 'no, I prefer fire or earth'

Myrella chuckles politely.

Lorenzo says, 'causes mages do smell funny. I think it's all the dead-raising'

Dias-Jax says, '4 technically'

Kurgan says, 'shh ladyace wil give the guards mind'

Kurgan cowers in fear of LadyAce's wrath!

Dias-Jax says, 'no one carries 4 saebels'

Kaige says to Huginn, 'all he has to do is smile at the peasant girls and they line up to join his army'

Huginn says, 'you don't get powerful charmies for cause by animating country squires'

Kaige winks suggestively at Robar.

Huginn chuckles politely.

Emrysia giggles at Kaige.

Cheap says, 'no, my original point was that the healing on both seemed to fast considering everything else a cause mage has'

Huginn says, 'for cause you have to kill it first'

Huginn says, 'and kill something fairly large'

Robar says to Kaige, 'can you blame them?'

Myrthorn whistles at Myrella appreciatively.

Robar smiles at Kaige.

Kaige giggles at Robar.

Huginn says, 'create doesn't have that limitation'

Myrthorn raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Myrthorn no longer looks quite as distracted.

Myrella says, 'its not hard to find a lvl 50 mob that a sneeze would kill'

Kaige says to Huginn, 'or find something big that someone else killed'

Huginn nods his agreement with Kaige.

Myrella says, 'or find something a little smaller and work up'

Cheap says, 'yeah, follow varnel around when hes active for 5 minutes, ill reach my mana or spiritual limits quick :p'

Lorenzo says to Huginn, 'but it works -- like getting yourself a new weapon after a DT, you can work your way up'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Myrthorn.

Huginn says, 'yes you can'

Huginn says, 'and create doesn't have to'

Huginn shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'I think at least *some* big mobs should be stupid now and then :P'

Cheap nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'next up is Kurgan actually.'

Cheap says, 'ladyace's guards in klien are way to smart now, they see the invis for heaven sakes'

Kurgan smiles happily.

Kaige thinks they could be smarter tactical wise -- not stat wise.

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Cheap nods his agreement with Kaige.


Bug with Cause Charm Limit?

Kurgan says, 'ok, there's a bug with cause mages killing their own charms in order to make another. if you were at the limit, kliled your skeleton for example, and tried to raise another one, you cant.'

Kurgan is completely boggled.

Kurgan says, 'Do you understand what I mean?'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'and it's been reported, but I'm not sure anyone's had time to look into it yet.'

Kurgan says, 'and I seemed to come to the conclusion that it only happens if you kill it off / ditch it yourself'

Kurgan says, 'just to help you coders out - thats the conclusion I came to :P'

Kaige nods her agreement with Kurgan.

Kurgan says, 'but oh well!'

Kurgan says, 'crappy bug!'

Kurgan swings his arms around.

Cheap says, 'don't kill them yourself :p'

Kurgan says, 'thats it'

Kurgan says, 'Well, I didnt know that until I had done it a few times.'

Cheap nods his agreement with Kurgan.

Kurgan says to Myrthorn, 'if you have 8 charms, and you're using them all, and suddenly you cant have 8 anymore, you're missing out'

Lorenzo says to Cheap, 'Doctor, it hurts when I do this?'

Cheap says, 'huh?'

LadyAce says, 'classic joke. doctor it hurts when i do this. response: stop doing it'

Kurgan says, 'if your charms are mind/10 for your # of charms and you have 80 mind and can only make 7 charms now..thast not fair'

Myrella says to Kurgan, 'what the heck you need 8 for?'

Dias-Jax says, '4 swords, 3 healing tanks, one current tank?'

Kurgan says, 'I was leveling my cause mage, alternating tanks'

Dias-Jax has done that many times.

Cheap says, 'ahh'

Cheap nods solemnly.


PK Practice & Events?

Cheap says, 'ok, pk open practice, can I beg you guys to have more of them please, I have so many people who are thinking on pke or pk but they would like to have more of those open practices where having there characters killed a dozen times does not matter'

Cheap says, 'im not sure what the turn out was like last time, but I know of a few people for sure that are not normal pkillers who would be interested'

LadyAce says, 'we did get very good turnout at it, yes.'

LadyAce says, 'But I don't want to satisfy people's pk hunger with pk testmuds.'

Cheap says, 'ok, I know you guys have a busy schedule, but could we have more'

Sandra says, 'why would they like more? I mean, couldn't they go pkok here first and see if they like it then go from there? Or is it that they just want to pk with no worries on the testmud?'

LadyAce says, 'whet a little appetite now and then is one thing, creating a whole new outlet for pk energy would sap the regular mud'

Cheap says, 'they just want to see what all out action is like without worrying about the xp loss I guess'

Myrella says, 'well with practice the dont lose xp , whihc I think is the whole point'

Dias-Jax nods his agreement with Myrella.

Lorenzo says, 'I think the no permanent xp loss is the ticket'

Myrella says, 'most people tend to be fond of their xp'

Myrthorn nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Dias-Jax says, 'Xp is hard to regain once you become a full time PKer, there's only so many ways you can XP easily and care free'

Huginn says, 'the xp loss is completely trivial'

Kaige says, 'yeah. been seeing a lot of comments on the pk xp loss lately in the logs.'

LadyAce says, 'It's not *that* much xp, really. Hafta be ready to lose a bit of it if you're going to be a pker'

LadyAce says, 'I do them about once a month, and I'm pretty happy with that rate.'

Myrthorn says, 'plenty of pk muds out there to practice on, if they need to learn somewhere's'

Huginn says, 'being killed by a mob, maybe, being pkilled, no'

Alashar snickers at Myrthorn nastily.

LadyAce says, 'while a few people do use it to learn, a lot of people also use it to just go nuts.'

Myrthorn says, 'and don't want to learn here'

Dias-Jax says to LadyAce, 'the gain as compared to the loss though is a tremendous amount, its hard to justify what you lose when you kill someone, lose all your HP and mana and receive 19k'

Kurgan says to Dias-Jax, 'just dont lose if you dont want to lose xp'

Alashar says, 'It's just xp'

Alashar grins evilly at Kurgan.. wonder what he's thinking...

Dias-Jax chortles at Kurgan's feeble witticism.

Kurgan grins evilly.

Lorenzo says, 'It's pretty trivial for a couple of kills, but there's a certain luxury in knowing you can practice anything and die lots of times with nothing to make up for later'

LadyAce says, 'or stop before losing :P'

Sandra says, 'Honestly, I would suggest they go pkok to practice. That way they could do so with friends and not go to death if they're worried. See if they like it then move on'

Cheap says, 'yeah, xp is soooooo easy to get'

Lorenzo shrugs helplessly.

Alashar says, 'xp is stupidly easy to get'

Lorenzo says, 'I'm just trying to imagine the point of view'

LadyAce says, 'play down to 50 hp, calm.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandra.

LadyAce says, 'there are lots of other ways to practice.'

Dias-Jax says, 'I dont exactly calm :P'

LadyAce says, 'I just don't want to see people relying too much on the testmuds and not trying the real mud'

Huginn says to Dias-Jax, 'then flee'

Myrella says, 'then flee, same thing'

Myrella chuckles politely.

Kurgan says, 'once a month is a good rate ladyace...I agree with that'

Myrthorn snickers softly.

Dias-Jax says, 'Im just saying though, its truly an unfair system to get so little for so much work, PK is just as hard if not harder than mobkill really, and, though its not much, a little more would be welcome'

Kurgan is looking forward to this event!

Alashar says, 'testmuds once a month are far too much'

Kurgan points to the 29th

Alashar says, 'pk without concequence isn't real pk'

Alashar says, 'I think its a bad idea'

Myrella says, 'testmud was fun, nothing like 20 times to confirm the fact you'll never be a pkiller'

Cheap says, 'ok, same subject then, any more pk tourneys in the work, I know Sandra has a hot/cold relationship with hers, but whos to say kaige cant host a pk tourney or huginn here?'

Myrthorn says, 'is only once a month enough, girls?'

Myrthorn falls flat on the ground trying to duck under a picnic blanket.

Robar says to Dias-Jax, 'if you're too lazy to pkill then dont?'

LadyAce says, 'the practice is an artificial environment, for sure.'

Kurgan says, 'the 29th is a PK EVENT'

Dias-Jax says, 'I actually have Pkilled more in the past week than ever before Robar, I said nothing about being too lazy to PKill :)'

Kurgan says, 'unsure what the event will be...but there is one!'

Alashar says, 'I'd hate to see people say, "well I just can fight once a month, no need to go pk!"'

Cheap says, 'personally, I practice pk by jumping wardens and grendels, not on a test mud, but thats just me'

Sandra says, 'mine are hard to get going because I work weekends and have school during the week.'

Dias-Jax says, 'What I am saying is that Im too lazy to mobkill ;)'

Huginn nods solemnly.

Cheap nods his agreement with Sandra.

Sandra says to Dias-Jax, 'get unlazy ;)'

Sandra winks suggestively at Dias-Jax.

Alashar says, 'one sl run takes approx. 2 hours and is worth 2.5mil'

Dias-Jax giggles at Sandra.

Alashar says, 'if you do nothing but die and never fight another mob, thats something like 8 deaths'

Dias-Jax says, 'Im trying'

LadyAce says, 'I want to see a PK event of some kind once a month -- I haven't specified what kind of event because I want to make sure I don't conflict with Sandra's tourney.'

LadyAce says, 'if I do a tourney, it should be well clear of hers.'

Kurgan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Kurgan says, 'I liked your stock tourney before'

Cheap says, 'I am trying to premote a bit of pk on the mud and I think tourneys will help if they were a little more regular'

Alashar says, 'if pk isn't worth 2 hours of mobkill to you, then don't do it'

Cheap says, 'yeah, your stock tourney was fun'

Kurgan says, 'the first one'

Dias-Jax chortles at Alashar's feeble witticism.

Kurgan says, 'when I was a newbie'

Kurgan chuckles politely.

Dias-Jax says, 'I've muuuuch more than 2 hours of mobkill'

Alashar says, '2 hours for every 8 deaths is squat'

LadyAce says, 'well, once a month is kinda regular :)'

Kurgan nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Cheap says, 'maybe, but its not always a tourney that you have'

Cheap says, 'last tourney tourney was your stock tourney'

LadyAce says, 'Yea, last few have been practices.'

Alashar says, 'get some balls, stop whining about something that doesn't matter and put it too good use'

Alashar throws his head back and cackles gleefully!

Sandra says, 'I think that the best way to promote pk is the actions on this mud by the pkillers. Not tournies or open practices'

Kaige says, 'the fact still remains.. pk under any code system is what the players using it make of it.'

Kaige nods her agreement with Sandra.

LadyAce says, 'with all the code changes and pke going in, doing a practice seemed better.'

Sandra says, 'if the players see that the pkillers are having fun, then they'll join in'

Cheap says, 'true enough sandra, but the actions lately have been good have they not?'

LadyAce says, 'I do think no-loss events help encourage people to try it, and help build up some connections between people.'

Cheap says, 'some of us who are active would like to have a tourney from time to time to have something to boast about'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Sandra says, 'so far they've been very good. And we are getting pkillers.'

Kurgan nods his agreement with Sandra.

Kurgan says, 'What # are we up to'

Kaige says, 'I haven't checked lately'

Kurgan nods solemnly.

Sandra says, 'I had estimated about 20 in the first 2 months and I think we're somewhere close to that last we checked'

Kurgan says, '20 ?'

Kaige says, 'we were at 29 chars last weekend'

Kurgan says, 'oh'

Kurgan nods solemnly.

Kurgan would be happy at about 30!

Kurgan grins evilly.

LadyAce says to Cheap, 'I think organizing a player-run tutorial with a group run afterwards to regen xp could be a good draw'

Cheap says, '30, bah, 35 to 40'

Sandra says, 'so would I ;) But we're getting there'

Kurgan nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'and I know Memories was talking about trying to get pkers together in a knowledge-sharing sort of session in the OOC.'

Cheap nods solemnly.

Kurgan says, 'That's cool'

Sandra says, 'I wanna see some more pk clans too'

Kurgan nods solemnly.

Cheap says, 'im trying Sandra, Im trying :('

Sandra says, 'yea I know, saw that :)'

LadyAce says, 'the more player-driven it is, the more successful it'll be :)'

Kurgan chuckles politely.

Kurgan cheers for Cheap - huzzah!

LadyAce giggles at Cheap.

Sandra giggles.

Kaige says, 'looks like we're up to 31 players pke'd'

Kurgan says, 'wow'

Cheap says, 'nice'

Kurgan says, 'sweet'

Sandra says, 'sweet'

Kurgan says, 'where are they'

Kurgan snickers at Sandra nastily.

Sandra giggles.

Kaige says, 'fighting pkok people from the looks of it'

Kaige ducks to the ground.

Kurgan chuckles politely.

LadyAce giggles at Kaige.

Sandra giggles.

Sandra says, 'time for random jumpage!'

Sandra throws her head back and cackles gleefully!

Kurgan chuckles politely at Sandra's feeble witticism.

Robar pokes Emrysia in the ribs.

Cheap says, 'people are telling me to bring back the merc clan, but I don't know'

Myrella wrinkles her nose with distaste.

Robar raises his eyebrow at Kurgan.

Sandra says, 'I don't like beating a dead horse'

Cheap nods solemnly.

Kurgan says, '3 times is enough'

Kurgan chuckles politely.

Cheap says, 'yeah'

Sandra says, 'be original, that's more fun :)'

Kurgan says, 'altho I was only here for the last two :)'

Kurgan missed the best one!

Cheap says, 'and there was talk of MOD again....'

LadyAce says, 'Be Mongols or Cossacks or Mamelukes :)'

Cheap snickers softly.

Sandra giggles.

LadyAce says, 'or Swiss Guards :)'

Cheap says, 'I think I need to bonk heads with alashar and come up with a good rival clan to the wardens'

Sandra nods her agreement with Cheap.

Sandra says, 'yea the grendels are rivals to everyone'

Sandra giggles.

LadyAce says, 'Mongols!'

Kaige says, 'oh and for the curious out of last 177 deaths since pke was turned on that involved a pke character... 112 of them were pke vs pke so about 1/3 of the fights that end in deaths that I can track are with pkok people.'

Kaige says, 'it's looking like it picked up big time this past week.'

Cheap says, 'very very nice'

LadyAce says to Kaige, 'cooool.'

Cheap says, 'ha, lets make one more!'

Cheap waves happily.


Complete Social List on Web?

Myrella says, 'How come on the webpage we have a nice list of what the socials do but not socials with items?'

Chocorua says, 'because its a pain to write up'

Cheap says to Chocorua, 'cant you just like copy and paste?'

Cheap ducks to the ground.

Chocorua says to Cheap, 'not that easy'

Myrella says, 'yes well no more fun than me making my own list :P'

Sandra giggles.

Chocorua says to Myrella, 'yes but you want it .. i don't really need it .. heh so you have the motivation'

Myrella says, 'yes me and how many others would like it?'

Chocorua says, 'honestly its a HUGE deal to update that list'

LadyAce says, 'if only we could make the doppels do it for us :)'

Myrella says, 'some are just so fun'

Lorenzo says to Chocorua, 'can I mail it to you?'

Myrella tries to seduce Myrthorn by offering him her golden tanned body.

Myrella laughs.

Myrthorn says, 'oooh'

Myrthorn drools contentedly.

LadyAce says to Lorenzo, 'Lemme guess, you scriptolated it? :P'

Sandra says, 'sweet'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Lorenzo giggles.

Chocorua says to Lorenzo, 'mail it to me then'

Lorenzo nods solemnly.

Chocorua says to Lorenzo, 'but don'

Chocorua says to Lorenzo, 'but dont expect it in real soon asi still have my new distraction to deal with'

Sandra giggles.

Lorenzo says to Chocorua, 'sure, I'm in no hurry. Just trying to help'

Sandra says, 'it's such a nice bike too!'

Chocorua nods his agreement with Sandra.


Why is Monday a good PK Day?

Kaige says, 'why is monday such a pk fest day?'

Sandra says, 'hangover day?'

Sandra giggles.

Chocorua says, 'angst over weekend ending'

Myrella says, 'monday frustrations? :P'

Kaige says, 'weekends seem to be dead for it.. but. monday through thurs it picks up'

Kaige says, 'maybe. it's just interesting.'

Robar says, 'or because of the fact that mondays are twice as long as any other day'

Chocorua says, 'blame it on work and school frustration'

LadyAce says, 'yea, it is. I think of pk as a latenight/weekend type activity'

Sandra says, 'I'd pk more on weekends but work keeps getting in the way'

Chocorua says, 'or since its opposite sandra schedule we blame her'

Sandra giggles.

Chocorua says, 'for causing it'

Sandra says, 'monday thru thursday works for me!'

LadyAce says, 'seems like we're about done here :) Thanks for coming, everyone.'

Myrthorn hugs LadyAce.

Myrthorn waves happily.

Sandra waves happily.

Chocorua waves happily.

Myrthorn says, 'time for a night cap ... or a nice fluffy pillow ..'

Myrthorn snickers softly.

Kaige votes for the pillow!

Kaige waves happily.


Additional Topics Answered

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

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


General Suggestions/Questions

o Can we have an autoassist option, would be sweet for runs.
We do not intend to ever have automapping, autolooting, aliases, or any other commands that permit players to not pay attention to the game as they play.
o Iron will is in my allskills, I have courage and valor, I have a prac, I have expert swordsmanship....but the teacher says he'll teach me iron will when I am a better fighter - am I missing something?
Yes, you MUST also have at least one of the minimum physical stats too.
o I have courage on my skill list, but I cannot learn it, now I thought (and maybe I am wrong, but a skill shouldn't be on a list if you cannot learn it
Yes, we know. We're working on it. Currently allskills only checks if you qualify for a skill based on your hometown, level, current stats and prestige. There are additional checks for the newer skills that are not easily put into that same data table.
o Being lightless at the moment, I can't really complain, however it's 3am here in sherwood and it just turned daylight. That seems a little early?
Not at all. The farther north or south you go from the equator, it changes the times for sunrise and sunset according to the season. For example, it's light in Denmark at 3 am in summer, and that's the same time/daylight zone. Ireland is also known for its short summer nights and then there's parts of Alaska where they experience even worse extremes.
o There should be NO LIMIT on how much text can be sent at a time, in a tell for instance. No limit whatsoever. I should be able to send, in a tell, the entire text of the Holy Bible, if I so please.
That's probably why there is a limit. =P Other than the fact that the computer likes to know the length of things it's dealing with and tends to get cranky if something's not specified and it overwrites it.
o Here's a real revvolutionary one, when an item is at slightly damaged, and a tform succeeds, the item should NOT still be at freaking slightly damaged.
The message that describes item damage reports as a percentage of full -- so.. if it's not fully repaired.. it's gonna still say slightly damaged.
o I can't read the help file on the spell sustained breath, it tells me I don't qualify for the skill.
As it says at the very bottom of HELP MAGIC: Help on individual spells can be obtained by typing HELP SPELL NAME. If you do not get info on the spell but on a skill or other command then type HELP SPELL NAME SPELL to get the relevant help file.
o Up the clan limit to 25...or 50 :p People allowed in a clan, that is.
We've already increased the number of characters in a clan once. We're not ready to increase it again. The average membership of all clans is only around 10 and we haven't met the limit on number of clans either. Also, if it were increased again, the minimum number to maintain a clan would be increased as well.
