Spell on Lyre Better?

Horror says, 'ok is there any way we can get the armor spell on the lyre to last just a LITTLE bit longer?'

LadyAce says to Horror, 'I owe you a Vampire Somar dolly, too!'

Horror says, 'its only lasts like 4 ticks atm'

Horror nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Horror cheers wildly!

Horror prances about happily.

Kaige says, 'if it lasts longer, the change of it going off will go down in compensation'

Horror says, 'well it still takes me spamming it and going to smoke and comming back before it goes off'

Horror laughs.

LadyAce says, 'it's a trade-off -- use idea to tell Bart what you're thinking tho'

Horror says, 'bart?'

Horror blinks.

Kaige peers at LadyAce, looking her up and down.

Kaige says, 'bart doesn't maintain sherwood'

Horror laughs.

Horror taunts LadyAce mercilessly.

LadyAce says, 'oh, wrong item!'

Horror says, 'gilt lyre'

Horror waves a gilt lyre.

LadyAce thinking of the "other" instrument that does magic :)

Horror says, 'i would rather it last longer imho'

Horror says, 'maybe 6 to 8 ticks'

Horror says, '4 ticks is just so short'

Trousers raises his hand.

Horror says, 'who maintains sherwood then>?'

Horror says, 'kaige?'

Kaige nods her agreement with Horror.

Horror slides up to Kaige and tries to seduce her.

LadyAce says, 'so I'd say your comment has been heard :)'

Horror nods her agreement with LadyAce.

Horror says, 'done!'


Dex and Iron Will?

Trousers says, 'I wanna whine about dex iron will'

You do a slow fade as Horror whines at Trousers, hoping she won't get to you too.

Trousers says, 'why is it that it fires off so rarely?'

Trousers says, 'I mean, it's not even beneficial'

Horror says, 'its all spirit!'

Horror says, 'its true!'

Horror glares at nothing in particular.

LadyAce says, 'I don't know, maybe it doesn't always have a message...without Huginn here to address it directly, I'm not sure I can be very helpful'

Trousers says, 'It's just a pain that I can never tumble anything in a fight'

Trousers says, 'even with 80 dex'

Horror says, 'try not having tumble'

LadyAce says, 'you might want to add your thoughts to the thread on discussion about con and hb and whatnot'

Trousers says, 'prolly. con hb sucks too'

Trousers growls at Horror. Better leave before the fighting starts!

Horror says, 'just you wait'

Horror says, 'im going back to 100 con'

Horror grins evilly at Trousers... Wonder what she's thinking...

Trousers says, 'wouldnt matter how much you have, it still owns'

Horror nods her agreement with Trousers.

Horror says, 'hell im con and molath owned me with headbutt'

Horror laughs.

Trousers nods solemnly.


Forgotten Passwords?

Horror says, 'oh the purge'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Horror.

Horror says, 'ok is there anyway to tell if theres an alt of mine out there that a may have forgoten my password for?'

Horror scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Horror says, 'i think i got 2'

Horror says, 'not sure tho'

LadyAce says, 'you think it's yours, but the password doesn't work, so you're not sure?'

LadyAce says, 'sure, we'll poke around and try to match what you remember to the char, if that's the case'

Horror says, 'right i think its pretty old and i tried all my normal passwords still nothing'

Horror says, 'ok....'

Horror says, 'im pretty retarded to forget my own passwords'

Horror ducks to the ground.

Horror says, 'ok im done LA is looking into it'


Token For Desc Change?

Trousers says, 'do I get a token for writing a story about my desc change?'

Horror says, 'nope :P'

Lorenzo says to Trousers, 'i think you get your desc changed :)'

Horror nods her agreement with Lorenzo.

Trousers says, 'I was just checking.'

Trousers says, 'because the article for the LT thing, and yeah'

Trousers shrugs helplessly.

Horror says, 'im going write a grendel article soon, we need to recruit some'

Horror says, 'im just too lazy'

Trousers says, 'i'm gonna find allegory when he's not busy and comtemplate about writing an rp of my overthrow'

Horror chuckles politely.

Horror nods her agreement with Trousers.


Social Ideas

Trousers says, 'There needs to be a brood social'

Trousers broods in the corner.

Lorenzo mopes around, depressed.

Horror says, 'there needs to be a howl social'

Horror howls

Horror prances in circles around Lorenzo, smiling happily.


TUMBLE w/o Iron Will?

LadyAce says, 'Ok, let me ask Kousenborg's question -- he asks if tumble has been hobbled -- in particular, did tumble get worse when iron will etc. went in to make it better?'

LadyAce says, 'I don't know of any changes like that, but I'm asking if y'all have seen that?'

Horror says, 'not really'

Trousers says, 'Not sure about that one, I didnt have tumble when it went in'

Trousers looks up into the sky and ponders.

Trousers says, 'it went in when I was playing my lowbie mage'

Horror says, 'dharma tumbled my headbutt twice and my bash twice i landed once'

Horror nods solemnly.

LadyAce nods solemnly.



Horror says, 'is there a chance for me to jump out of the way of a backstab with out having dodge?'

LadyAce says, 'there's a failure chance for backstab without the opponent having any special skills, yea'

Horror says, 'its pretty low a assume'

Static says, 'that "jump out of the way" is just the message for a fail... right?'

Static says, 'it doesnt imply it was dodged'

Kaige nods her agreement with Static.

Static says, 'or anything'

Horror says, 'i thought that was dodge'

Horror shrugs philosophically.

Horror says, 'ok i never jump out of the way EVER'

Horror says, 'not once ever have i'

Trousers says, '"So and so tries to backstab so and so2, but so and so2 twists out of the way."'

Trousers says, 'something like that'

Static says, 'dude snipers already have a massive disadvantage in pk... you want them more gimped :P'

Horror says, 'is it based on dex then for me to make the guy miss?'

Horror says, 'im just wondering'

Trousers nods his agreement with Horror.

Trousers says, 'and their perc'

Kaige says, 'it's just a normal failure message'

Horror says, 'k'

Horror says, 'wonder why i get slammed with then'

Horror says, 'never get a fail on me'

Horror says, 'luck i guess'

Horror scuffles her feet around in the dirt.

Trousers says, 'Their perc... vend has 100'

Trousers says, 'If that's what you're thinking'

Horror says, 'not just him'

Trousers says, 'Allegory too'

Horror says, 'yeah'

Horror says, 'what about wary'

Horror says, 'that help with fails?'

Trousers says, 'Thats part of it too'

Trousers says, 'if you're three wary it's hard to land anything on ya lol'

Horror says, 'yeah i tried that'

Horror nods her agreement with Trousers.

Horror says, 'hard to hit too ":)'

Trousers nods solemnly.


Banks, Lockers, Pawn Broker?

Trousers says, 'We could discuss the cool bank account idea again'

Trousers winks suggestively at LadyAce.

Horror says, 'oh i got an idea about banks'

LadyAce raises her eyebrow at Horror.

Horror says, 'i would LOVE to see a safty deposit box that you can but and pay rent on that can hold like 2-4 itsms'

Kaige says, 'those are called houses.'

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

Horror says, 'thats WAY too expensive'

LadyAce says, 'what we need is someone to RP a pawnbroker'

Horror says, 'im talking about something much cheaper'

Airmid says, 'like a lockerroom'

Airmid says, 'a hotel'

Horror says, 'yeah that would rock'

Trousers still wants a savings account.

Horror nods to herself.

Static says, 'the economy is shot... the playerbase is too small to support anything like that'

Horror says, 'just to hold a few items'

Static says, 'pawnbroker, that is'

Horror nods her agreement with Static.

Horror says, 'be nice for me to store a few items without having to pay 100k for a house'

Horror shrugs philosophically.

LadyAce says, 'well, informally, you could give someone 15k to hold something for you, or whatever'

Trousers says, 'no guarantee on that though'

Horror says, 'yeah'

Horror says, 'but!'

Trousers says, 'they might decide they are tired of lugging it around and drop it'

LadyAce says, 'they could put it in their house is what I'm thinkin'

Horror says, 'a locker would let me get any item i need at anytime'

Horror says, 'and not have to worry about some other player'

Static says, 'funny thing about houses'

Static says, 'is the vast majority of ppl use them to hold strings and coupons'

Horror nods her agreement with Static.

Static says, 'which are actually just money that hasnt been liquidated'

Horror says, 'that and idle pk :P'

Static says, 'so in essance'

Horror nods to herself.

Static says, 'you're using money to store money'

Horror chuckles politely.

Horror says, 'nice way of looking at it'

Lorenzo says, 'it's only money if you plan to liquidate it. otherwise it's an asset.'

Lorenzo scuffles his feet around in the dirt.



Horror says, 'and one more thing about houses'

Horror says, 'furniture rent needs lowered'

LadyAce says, 'furniture is free....'

Horror says, 'i found 4 pieces of stuff in our that was 1500 rent each'

LadyAce says, 'can't get much cheaper than free!'

Trousers pokes a metal chest.

Trousers says, 'this is 100 in a house'

Horror says, 'its not free'

Horror says, 'they were 1500 rent each'

Kaige says, 'that chest is not a furniture item'

Horror says, 'yeah it was a chair'

Trousers says, 'I thought mail was part of furniture'

LadyAce says, 'hafta pay for mail'

Horror says, 'am i wrong here why does it id object at 1500 rent?'

Kaige says, 'which chair?'

LadyAce says, 'when the charges are assessed, FURNITURE items won't get charged for.'

Horror says, 'i dunno 4 different ones that were in my hall'

Lorenzo says, 'furniture in inv is 1500, but is counted at 0 when assessing house cost'

Kaige says, 'and items will cost rent to carry around.. but check what it says with CATALOG'

LadyAce says, 'if they're not type furniture, they'll have charges'

Horror says, 'catalog?'

Horror says, 'that a command?'

Static says, 'like right now... that player asking for the boots - i can either go kill that dude, it'll take me about 80 hp and 10 minutes of travel'

Kaige says, 'yeah. the command that lists out what rent things in your house are charged for'

Trousers says, 'Water trough from the lay brother in the abbey is really renty'

Static says, 'and sell it for 5k'

Horror says, 'that work for me since im not GM'

Lorenzo says, 'well, not all furniture, but for example'

LadyAce says, 'we wanted to make a penalty for people hauling around big pieces of furniture and using them for bags'

Trousers nods his agreement with Horror.

Static says, 'cuz anything more will just get laughed at'

Trousers says, 'yeah, you're in the clan'

Horror nods her agreement with Trousers.

Static says, 'or drive my way right to a mob and whack him - take about 20 hp and less time'

Horror says, 'ok brb'

Static says, 'and get the same amount'

Lorenzo says, 'catalog is nice'

Lorenzo hearts catalog.

Trousers says, 'check on the water trough from the abbey'

Lorenzo says, 'it helps me find things I've lost'

Trousers says, 'that thing is renty in a house'

Lorenzo scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

LadyAce says, 'not always the opportunity to kill the mobs with $ though'

Static says, 'you just have to know where to look'

Trousers says to Lorenzo, 'Lol i spent 10 minutes lookin for a potion in my hall.'

Horror says, 'ok i will look at that more'

Lorenzo nods his agreement with Trousers.

Horror says, 'thats sweet'

Lorenzo comforts Trousers.

Trousers says, 'someone stashed it in front of the fireplace'

Lorenzo says, 'yeah, I used to lose stuff all the time, invis bookshelves and such'

Trousers didn't know fireplace was a container.

Lorenzo says, 'er, not invis, just ones with no long'

Trousers says, 'Cheyla couldn't figure the trough out. I had to settle for coffee'


Housing for Inferno?

Horror says, 'so hows hells housing comming with cheyla stepping down?'

Horror raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

LadyAce doesn't know

Static says, 'kae said the housing wont be past charon anyway so...'

Static says, 'boring'

Horror says, 'yeah i know'

Horror says, 'thats ok tho'

LadyAce says, 'I don't know the link between housing & head builder though'

Horror says, 'i need to talk to kae'

Horror says, 'im not on in the days anymore :('

LadyAce says, 'was it going to go through approval rather than just be an incremental update?'

Kaige says, 'none between head builder and housing for hell, except Cheyla was doing the housing for/with Kae'

Horror says, 'i thought cheyla was doing the housing in hell'

Horror says, 'see!'

Kaige nods her agreement with Horror.

Horror says, 'there was a connection!'

LadyAce says, 'ah, ok. I remember that now'

LadyAce giggles.

Horror says, 'i had a few ideas for kae on hell'

Horror says, 'i posted some on the prodical forum'

Kaige says, 'cool'

Horror says, 'make sure you read it and reply!'

Horror nudges Kaige.


One Legend Forum?

Static says, 'we need a forum on the legendmud page again'

Horror says, 'there is'

Horror says, 'its been slow till now!'

Kaige says to Static, 'Well, until very recently, we didn't have anything to support a database to do things like that.'

Horror says, 'i tried not to give anything away too'

Static says, 'wait so im confused... is there a forum on legendmud.org or not?'

Horror says, 'not on there'

Horror says, 'kaige probably has the site'

Horror winks suggestively at Kaige.

Horror says, 'its kae's and hraths site'

Static says, 'there's a yahoo forum'

Static says, 'no one uses'

Static says, 'just too much'

Horror says, 'yahoo forum is spam city last time i looked'

Kaige says, 'like I said, we didn't have the ability to do it until recently, and now we'd need someone motivated to do it'

Trousers says, 'themorgue.no-ip.com is herbies'

Horror nods her agreement with Trousers.

Trousers says, 'but it's way laggy as of late'

Horror says, 'way laggy'

Horror nudges Trousers.

Horror says to Trousers, 'Help me out there~.'

Trousers nods his agreement with Horror.

Trousers says, 'what you need?'

Static says, 'need to find a new host, and drop a clean php template in'

Static says, 'and make it look good :P'

Horror says, 'anything that makes it look better then the crap it looks like now'

Trousers winks suggestively at LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'Kaige does the LT :)'

Trousers says, 'Kaige didn't either, but kaige is having some issues on her end i think'

Trousers peers at Kaige, looking her up and down.

Kaige says to Trousers, 'About a token for it? someone answered.. I know LA said you get your desc changed.'

Trousers says, 'nah'

Trousers says, 'the one about me getting my desc early because i wrote a spiffy story and because kaige loves me'

Trousers winks suggestively at Kaige.

Horror laughs at Trousers.

Kaige says, 'You get it changed when you give the mudmail that you'll get when the next issue goes out, prolly Sat morning'

Trousers says, 'That's a whole day and a quarter away'

Trousers says, 'I don't get to be pantsman for a while'

Trousers sulks because Kaige has hurt his feelings.
