Huma says, 'anyone have any questions I can attempt to answer?' Somar says, 'for every one he can't answer, I shall kill him!' Somar ducks to the ground. Jesus cheers for Somar - huzzah! Jesus raises his hand. Chaykin waves hello to the world! Jesus goes EEK! at Chaykin in distress - isn't Chaykin an awful person for teasing? Huma pokes Jesus with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'go ahead sir' Somar cheers for Chaykin - huzzah! Somar cheers for Lenore - huzzah! Lenore puts a finger to her lips. Huma waves a welcome to Lenore. Hello! Chaykin pokes Lenore in the ribs. Huma waves a welcome to Chaykin. Hello! A heavenly aura appears in the room, is that Lenore? Lenore scuffles dirt onto Somar's shoes. Jesus says to Huma, 'Can we make someone post a list of unfinished areas from builders who bailed on us?' Chaykin giggles at Lenore. Lenore says to Somar, 'You were suppose to make him countess!' Lenore points at Chaykin. Huma says, 'hrrrrm' Jesus stomps on Lenore's toes. Somar says to Lenore, 'You can't rush perfection.' Huma says, 'there are lots and lots of them' Lenore snaps her fingers. ATTITUDE! Jesus says to Huma, 'That's kinda my point.' Chaykin says to Lenore, 'You're selling me out :P' Lenore nods her agreement with Chaykin. Huma says, 'I doubt it will happen but you can idea it or mudmail LadyAce' Lenore says to Chaykin, 'If i have to suffer so do you!' Lenore ducks to the ground. Jesus nods his agreement with Huma. Chaykin mutters something about Lenore. Huma says, 'however!' Jesus peers at Freaky, looking her up and down. Huma says, 'an interesting second to that' Freaky ponders Jesus's existence. Jesus runs around the room encouraging everyone, including you, to give Freaky a big hug. Jesus raises his eyebrow at Huma. Huma says, 'is that, there is lots of talk and will probably be some action on people adopting abandoned areas' Huma says, 'so that will be good' Jesus says to Huma, 'Well, there's a point behind my question, but i'll talk to LA :)' Huma says, 'thats fine :)' Chaykin says, 'yeah, I hear someone is going to get assigned that Tombstone area soon' Huma thought it was cool that we are gonna finish some of the areas but hey whatever =P Somar snickers at Chaykin nastily. Huma winces in sympathy with Chaykin. Jesus points at Somar. Somar says to Huma, 'Could you grant me slay please?' Jesus cheers for Huginn - huzzah! Huma says, 'so who else has questions' Chaykin knocks Huginn over and flops all over him. Jesus says, 'now i have questions!' Huma says, 'ok then'
Huma pokes Jesus with Kryptonite. Jesus raises his glass in a toast to Huginn. Huma says, 'ask away my animal brother' Jesus says, 'is anything planned to downtone perc?' Huginn says, 'yes' Huma just reccomended something today. Huma nods to himself. Jesus says to Huginn, 'Elaborate!' Huginn says, 'I'll be adjusting the additional damage that you can get for special head shots' Huginn says, 'and I'll be tweaking the stunning formula' Freaky says, 'no more 180 damage head shots :(' Freaky snickers softly. Huginn nods his agreement with Freaky. Jesus says to Huginn, 'It's not the headshits.' Jesus says, 'er, shots.' Huma says to Jesus, 'Potty mouth =P' Huginn looks at Jesus questioningly. Jesus says, 'it's the para's following them.' Jesus says, 'from the stun.' Jesus says, 'but i'll hush.' Freaky says, 'personally, id love to see no para off the stun shot and a max on the headshot of your perc total' Freaky shrugs helplessly. Jesus says to Freaky, 'I'd be all for that.' Freaky says, 'so someone who invests in 100 perc, can max out at 100' Freaky says, 'on that luck roll' Freaky says, 'of course' Jesus says, 'aimed, i hope you mean :)' Freaky shakes her head. Freaky says, 'you can get a headshot thats like a bonus' Huginn says, 'having a para shot once every 2 ticks isn't the direction I'm planning on going' Jesus says to Huginn, 'It's alot more than once every two ticks.' Huginn says, 'not the way you're suggesting' Freaky says, 'its once every two ticks' Jesus says to Huginn, 'It's every stun.' Huginn says, 'you do not para every stun' Huginn says, 'you can backstab on the stun, yes' Huginn says, 'if you're fast enough' Jesus says to Huginn, 'Well.' Huginn says, 'huma reminded me of something else we discussed' Freaky says, 'no, what Im saying is no more para of the stun and cap the bow damage to your perc on that once every 2 ticks lucky head shot deal' Jesus says to Huginn, 'I've never outlasted the first para after the first stun, so i wouldn't know.' Jesus smirks at Huginn. Huginn says, 'we'll also be capping backstab damage based on the quality of the weapon' Huma nods solemnly. Freaky says, 'so backstab damage will go down?' Huginn says, 'so if you aren't backstabbing with a Q5 weapon, your damage will be adjusted downwards' Huma nods his agreement with Huginn. Huginn says, 'not for Q5' Huma says, 'as long as you have a Q5 you're fine' Freaky nods solemnly. Huginn says, 'but yes for lower you will' Freaky says, 'phew' Huginn says, 'be adjusted downward' Jesus says, 'i don't get that.' Huginn says, 'what don't you get?' Huginn says, 'if its a worse weapon, it won't pierce as well?' Jesus says, 'i don't see lower q weapons as being a problem.. or even being used.' Huginn says, 'the pike you all love/fear?' Somar cheers for LadyAce - huzzah! Huginn says, 'that's not q5' Freaky says, 'the pike' Chaykin waves a welcome to LadyAce. Hello! Huma says, 'yeah' Huginn says, 'as an example' Freaky says, 'not many use it mind you' Huma says, 'the pike will no longer be for all intensive purposes, at all useful' LadyAce licks a margarita. Jesus says, 'ahh' Huginn slaps Somar. Jesus says, 'thought that was changed to no bs.' Jesus shrugs helplessly. LadyAce says, 'that's "all intents and purposes"' LadyAce winks suggestively at Huma. Jesus can't keep up. Huma says, 'yeah that too' Huma hangs his head. Somar cheers for Lorenzo - huzzah! Chaykin cheers for Lorenzo - huzzah! Huginn laughs at Lorenzo. Lorenzo waves hello to the world! Huginn congratulates Lorenzo on a job well done. Lorenzo models his equipment. Lorenzo giggles. Huma says to LadyAce, 'We had an earlier question regarding building... Jesus asked if theres any chance of us releasing a list of unfinished areas.' Jesus nods his agreement with Huma. Huma said probably not. LadyAce says, 'well, I always like to ask why before I answer questions!' LadyAce says, 'so, do tell!' Lenore grins evilly at Lorenzo... Wonder what she's thinking... Jesus says to LadyAce, 'We can discuss another time if you like :)' Huma says, 'so is that a we'll discuss this later?' LadyAce says, 'ok...doesn't look like a really busy night but any time, any place' Huma says, 'yeah' Huma says, 'more people might be interested' Huma says, 'lets get it on record why not' Huma nudges Jesus. Jesus says, 'more or less, it'd be helpful to anyone wishing to apply as a builder.' Freaky says, 'it might be interesting to know what area's are half built, I bet next time you might get a couple builders interested in picking up that slack' LadyAce says, 'potential folks should really toss their ideas around with me' Jesus says to Freaky, 'That's kinda my point.' LadyAce says, 'half-built areas don't belong to the mud, they belong to their builder' Freaky says, 'ahh' Chaykin looks up into the sky and ponders. Freaky says, 'im sure an arrangement could be made' LadyAce says, 'we have to get builder permission to finish up areas that aren't installed' LadyAce says, 'depends a lot on the area and such' Freaky nods solemnly. LadyAce says, 'and the builder' Freaky says, 'yeah' Jesus says, 'oh, no more flagg type stuff.' LadyAce says, 'and a billion other factors, personal, political, logistical' Huma says, 'yeah' Huma says, 'its silly sometimes =P' LadyAce says, 'plus the situation changes quite a bit from maybe month to month' Freaky says, 'people need to say, do whatever, I just want people to enjoy' Jesus says to Freaky, 'Then lose the fish shape. :p' Jesus snickers softly. LadyAce says, 'the last thing I want is someone thinking they have an area all locked up and they're going to propose it, but they didn't talk to me first, so there's a conflict' Freaky says, 'change headbutt :P' Somar staggers around the room, bumping into walls. Huma nods his agreement with LadyAce. LadyAce says, 'but posting a list of areas where the situation is clear, I don't mind that a bit' Huma nods his agreement with LadyAce. Freaky says, 'that might not be a bad idea' Jesus says to LadyAce, 'Mind doing that?' LadyAce says, 'we are cleaning up that list a bit still and talking about how areas move from status to status and then my status post will go up' Freaky nods solemnly. Huma says, 'yeah lots of reevaluation of processes goin on right now' Freaky says, 'I am so sore, 40 minutes on the ski machine at the gym...sigh' Huma winces in sympathy with Freaky. Chaykin comforts Freaky. Huma says, 'ok who else has Q's' Freaky says, 'I was reading the forums, what about that spirit mage thing, any chance of specialist mages?' Huma says, 'not soon I dont think' Huma says, 'but a few people do like the idea I do recall' Freaky nods solemnly. Freaky says, 'it sounds very interesting to me' Jesus says to Somar, 'Savanna!' Somar nods his agreement with Jesus. Jesus says to Somar, 'Make cool housing there!' Huma says, 'its cool cuz pretty much any idea you guys toss out we toss around' Somar says to Jesus, 'We'll see.' Somar says to Jesus, 'Lots of other stuff on the todo list there :)' Jesus looks up into the sky and ponders. Huma says, 'so what else is up, any other Qs?' LadyAce says, 'the area was unmaintained for a while before he picked it up, so there's an accumulation of dust bunnies' Jesus says to Somar, 'Just don't change gnus :p' Somar says, 'not too many bugs, but lots of stuff to tweak' Somar says, 'like the Jesus-hunting gnomes need to be toned up a bit' Jesus nods his agreement with Somar. Jesus says, 'there's stuff there for everyone. i like the area.' Huma nods solemnly. MiniMany raises his hand. Jesus says, 'oh!' Jesus raises his hand.
Huma says, 'Minimany!' Huma pokes MiniMany with Kryptonite. MiniMany says, 'Hell. The boat ride.' Huma says to MiniMany, 'You are up sir.' Lorenzo says, 'I'm seeing double!' MiniMany says, 'Is is fixed yet?' MiniMany says, 'No one dares fgo in' MiniMany says, 'go' Huma says, 'why not?' LadyAce says, 'Sandra thinks it's in good shape now' LadyAce says, 'so I'd say go take a look!' MiniMany says, 'absolute frustration' Huma says, 'Sandras been burning the latenight petroleum' Chaykin cheers for Rusalka - huzzah! LadyAce says, 'she did some serious work on it' Somar says to Huma, 'That is inadviseable.' Spanish-Flea blinks. Jesus tickles Spanish-Flea. Spanish-Flea raises his hand. Somar says to Huma, 'Igniting a petroleum product after 11:00 will set off the automatic fire supression system.' Spanish-Flea says, 'why is chaykin a tool?' Lorenzo lurks around Spanish-Flea ominously! Chaykin snickers at Spanish-Flea nastily. MiniMany says, 'exa welcome' LadyAce says to MiniMany, 'That cover your question?' Huma says to MiniMany, 'I think its better now.' Huma says to MiniMany, 'Try it again, if it busts again give Sandra some more crud about it.' MiniMany says, 'I suppose, though finding victims is too hard currently' Spanish-Flea raises his hand. LadyAce says, 'think Jesus is next' Huma says, 'ok MM?' MiniMany nods solemnly.
Huma pokes Jesus with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'he sure is' Jesus says, 'can resist items get an echo type message when they work?' Rusalka gives a freshly ironed toga to Chaykin. Jesus gasps at Rusalka. Chaykin beams at a freshly ironed toga delightedly - such materialism! Chaykin puts on his freshly ironed toga. Huma says, 'dont type where chair =P' Huginn rolls around on the ground with laughter. Rusalka giggles. Rusalka says, 'or where sword' Huma says, 'for all your people who dont know... where chair gives me a list of every chair in the games location' Spanish-Flea says, 'brb' Huma says, 'which promptly knocks you LD' Rusalka nods her agreement with Huma. Riley says to Jesus, 'I swear, I thought she was at least fifteen.' Huma says, 'but anyway can we show resist items working? Did we answer that?' Jesus comforts Riley. Lorenzo whimpers softly. Lorenzo says, 'I can't where :(' Spanish-Flea says, 'resist items are busted' Huginn says, 'how so?' Jesus says to Huma, 'No, we didn't :p' Lorenzo giggles. LadyAce says, 'I think it's not quite how they work...' Huginn says, 'how are they broken?' Riley points at LadyAce. Jesus says to LadyAce, 'I think, they don't work :)' Riley nods his agreement with Jesus. LadyAce says, 'they prevent X amount of damage per round' Huginn knocks Haley over and flops all over her. Spanish-Flea says, 'asterix wore himself a resist stun ammy against quagmire, then proceeded to get stunned 5 times' Somar cheers for Haley - huzzah! Jesus falls to his knees and worships Haley's existence. Huma says, 'well, it has changed around a lot' Riley bounces onto Haley's lap. Haley staggers around the room, bumping into walls. Huginn says, 'ah well that doesn't keep you from getting stunned' LadyAce says, 'so you'd see the message every round' Jesus nods his agreement with Spanish-Flea. Haley says, 'still finishing this build for my RL job, but almost done =)' Spanish-Flea says, 'now, that in itself is funny, whats funnier is that i still had time on each of said 5 stuns to backstab' Huginn says, 'it reduces the duration of stuns' Spanish-Flea says, 'see 2nd part :P' Spanish-Flea launches himself across the room and tackles Haley to the ground! Huginn says, 'we're looking at adding something that does the reduce chance part' Spanish-Flea says to Haley, 'weed out the new imms who can program, and make them do it for you.' LadyAce says, 'hm, that needs a helpfile :) someone idea it' Huma says, 'well I thin kit works' Huma says, 'but... what I'm thinking is' Huma says, 'that maybe some of the old items didnt make it through the code change as effective as they used to be' Huginn says, 'same with resist poison if I recall' Freaky raises her hand. Jesus says, 'so, 10% resist stun would make stun last 10% less than.. one round?' Huma says, 'and theres a good chance its something we should look at' Jesus says, 'making it.. one round.' Shivan says, 'oo i missed something about stun :<' Huginn says to Jesus, 'You're correct, more useful against say a wfw.' Spanish-Flea slaps Shivan. Shivan slaps Spanish-Flea. Jesus says to Huginn, 'So make amulet is... useless.' Shivan says, 'I'd say resisting stun should reduce the chance to BE stunned :P' Huma says, 'plus its not as ludicrous as you think' Huginn says, 'girls stop your slapping' Spanish-Flea says to Jesus, 'make amulet = funny on skull staff users!' Huginn says to Shivan, 'We just talked about that.' Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan. Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan. Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan. Huma says, 'idea it!' Shivan says, 'how nice :P' Huma says, 'I dont know if Huginns buyin though =P' Spanish-Flea says, 'i say stoneskin should make you suscep stun :P' Jesus says, 'it is resist stun, not shorten stun.' Huginn says, 'I said we'd add one :-)' Huginn says, 'we'll keep the other too' Shivan says, 'weh, stoneskin hasproblems enough thanks!' Spanish-Flea says to Huginn, 'no, first you gotta make king of the kill THEN cure cancer THEN you can add one.' Huma says, 'so are we just talking about resist stun or other resist items like.. resist pierce of whatever' Huginn nods his agreement with Spanish-Flea. Spanish-Flea says, 'resist items are fun' Huginn says, 'yup, is it just stun and poison that are the complaints?' Huma says, 'ok then we are done with the resist Q's?' Spanish-Flea says, 'in that they're not now stupid'
Huma pokes Spanish-Flea with Kryptonite. Jesus says to Huginn, 'No, don't forget para's from stuns :p' Huma says, 'I think you're next SF' Huginn likes the fact that they stack. Chaykin says, 'sorry everybody, I gotta go :(' Huma waves to Chaykin. Rusalka waves to Chaykin. Spanish-Flea says, 'bye tool' Huma likes the idea of stacking stuff too. Chaykin waves happily. Spanish-Flea says, 'remember: you cant PK, nor can sandra' Spanish-Flea says, 'aww' Huma says to Spanish-Flea, 'Have a question?' Huginn says, 'no no.. that's BUY TOOLS' Spanish-Flea says, 'yeah yeah' Shivan raises his hand. Shivan says, 'didanyone bitch about the stunshot damage multiplier yet?' Spanish-Flea says, 'by 'pick lock madness fixed'' Shivan says, 'i mean as ka question' Spanish-Flea says, 'what do you mean' Huginn says to Shivan, 'We talked about that.' Huma says to Shivan, 'Yeah we did but you can ask again when its your turn :)' Spanish-Flea says to Shivan, 'quiet, i'm gonna carry a fairy's bow *just* to try and stun you for 200 hp.' Huginn will give a completely different answer! Shivan says, 'oh god :<' Freaky rolls her eyes heavenward. Huma says, 'pick lock madness was like when you could lock literally any door with picklock' Freaky says, 'you people can't let anything lie' Huma says, 'everything from normal doors to like strands of moss' Spanish-Flea says, 'says the druid' Somar says, 'well, actually, that madness was fixed last week' Spanish-Flea pets Freaky lovingly. Jesus snickers at Spanish-Flea nastily. Huginn says to Spanish-Flea, 'Right now there are somethings that are becoming locked permenantly as well.' Huginn says, 'if I recall' Somar says, 'the new madness was the bug with my fix for that, that disallowed people from unlocking some locked doors with pick lock' Somar blushes bright red. Huma says, 'oh' Huginn nods his agreement with Somar. Huma says, 'nice call Somar' Freaky says, 'no, says the person who knows that the imms are working on correcting the problem' Spanish-Flea says, 'ok, in another respect then when can we pick higher end locks with high perc and dex' Spanish-Flea says, 'like, grendel halls, or houses' Spanish-Flea winks suggestively at Shivan. Huma says, 'we've been bandying ideas about for that for the past three days' Shivan says, 'you can nevar pick the grendelhall' Spanish-Flea says to Freaky, 'i'll stick with 'says the druid'.' Freaky says, 'your a moron' Freaky says, 'get over it' Spanish-Flea says to Shivan, 'i've picked it....twice out of maybe 200?' Huginn says to Spanish-Flea, 'We're looking at that, yes.' Huma says, 'so hopefully in the not to distant future' Spanish-Flea nods solemnly. Spanish-Flea says, 'just checking' Somar says, 'let's keep things civil here, please :)' Huginn says, 'expect houses to get a lot less safe' Jesus raises his hand. Huma nods his agreement with Huginn. Spanish-Flea says, 'hooray' Huginn says, 'not just from pick lock' Spanish-Flea says, 'phase and break?' Huma says, 'from all ways of entry' Huginn nods his agreement with Spanish-Flea. Spanish-Flea says, 'hooray!' Huma says, 'we're definately gonna change it'
Huma pokes Freaky with Kryptonite. Huma says to Freaky, 'Go ahead.' Vendetta says, 'a chair?' Vendetta says, 'that's hardly creative' Vendetta raises his hand. Shivan says, 'so what we have to regen in safe rooms now?' Freaky says, 'any thoughts on new spells? like maybe some transport style spells and such?' Vendetta says to Somar, 'style!' Huginn says, 'no new spells atm' Huginn says, 'but I did like the era locate suggestion' Huma says, 'yeah' Huma peers at Vendetta, looking him up and down. Huma says, 'it wasnt a bad idea' Huginn nods solemnly. Freaky says, 'can you elaborate?' Spanish-Flea says, 'era locate? wee' Spanish-Flea says, 'wait, lemme guess, a 2c cause spell?' Huginn says, 'not just cause' Spanish-Flea says, 'shocker!' Huma says, 'nah not cause only' Jesus says, 'make it 2c create. :p' Freaky says, 'can you shut up long enough to let people talk?' Huma says, 'it'll prolly be in the middle' Freaky pokes Spanish-Flea in the ribs. Huma says, 'useable by either' Spanish-Flea says to Freaky, 'can you not play a druid? k thnx.' Huginn says, 'cast it and it gives you the time period of the victim' Freaky says to Spanish-Flea, 'sniff, ohh poor baby.' Freaky pats Spanish-Flea on the head. Spanish-Flea gives Freaky permission to leave. Huma says, 'I bet that one will go in the not to distant future' Freaky laughs at Spanish-Flea. Vendetta says, 'oh ya' Vendetta says, 'I'm like honorary coder vendetta' Huma says, 'you two quiet down or I'll pull this car over right now' Shivan says, 'heh area locate sounds cool' Huma pokes Shivan with Kryptonite.
Vendetta says to Shivan, 'that's cause I'm cool.' Huma says to Shivan, 'Your question my good sir.' Freaky says, 'that does sound good' Shivan says, 'oh' Jesus says to Shivan, 'Era, not area.' Shivan says, 'well' Shivan says, 'yeah' Shivan says, 'Should guns/bows be doing multiplied damage on stun shots? With the ability to hit for 120+?' Huginn says to Shivan, 'I'm changing the special damage shot.' Shivan says, 'yes guns do it too' Shivan says, 'i've been sure-shotte for 90' Huma says, 'so have I' Huma says, 'its owwie' Jesus says to Shivan, '90? lucky you.' Vendetta says, 'so have i' Vendetta says, 'those snipers' Huma says, 'Huginn is gonna do it definately' Freaky nods her agreement with Vendetta. Spanish-Flea says, 'uzis are for weenies' Vendetta says, 'bunch of card-carrying commies if you ask me' Shivan says, 'ok so its changing somehow, thanks i think ;)' Somar snarls at Spanish-Flea. Huma says, 'changing for the less painful even' LadyAce giggles at Vendetta. Spanish-Flea says, 'morphines are for weenies' Spanish-Flea ducks under Somar.
Huma pokes Jesus with Kryptonite. Vendetta winks suggestively at LadyAce. Huma says to Jesus, 'Your turn to talk :)' Jesus says, 'oh, we answered me somewhere through all of that.' Riley says, 'I was wondering why there are not in-game smoking supply stores....' Riley says, 'I'm out of papers and blunt wraps burn my throat.' Huma says, 'hes called rick blaine' Somar says, 'if you really want a headshop, idea it where you think it's appropriate' Spanish-Flea says to Huma, '*other* smoking.' Huma says, 'ohhh' Huma says, 'well, we have that guy in Bengal right' Vendetta says, 'opium?' Vendetta says, 'who sells opium?' Vendetta says, 'which weakens?' Riley says, 'I'm not into hard drugs.' Vendetta says, 'and has 1000 gold coins on him?' Jesus snickers at Vendetta nastily. Huma says, 'ok my queue is empty' Riley says to Jesus, 'Hey, you put it here, dude.' Freaky raises her hand. Huma pokes Freaky with Kryptonite. Jesus looks at Riley, boggled. Huma says, 'go ahead' Vendetta gasps in astonishment. Vendetta says, 'I had my hand up' Vendetta raises his hand. Huma says, 'oh?' Jesus says to Riley, 'I did no such thing, that was dusks alt, not me.' Huma says, 'sowwy!' Freaky says, 'again, after reading the forums, the crafting idea from static, what are your thoughts?' Huma says, 'after Freaky :)' Shivan says, 'hmmforums' Huma says, 'oh, rumor is that has a lot of legs under it' Huma says, 'and its gonna go places' Vendetta says, 'can someone spell out the idea?' Shivan says, 'please' Huma says, 'oh in very brief' Freaky says, 'well, no one really has it spelled out yet' Freaky says, 'or maybe you do :)' Vendetta says, 'if you're trying to confuse me' Huma says, 'a set of skills that dont directly have to do with fighting or anything like that, but instead allow you to make stuff and things like that' Shivan says, 'crafting custum statted items could be uhm...fun :P' Vendetta says, 'you are unsuccessful' Vendetta says, 'you mean like tailor?' Huma says, 'but again, its a massive undertaking =P' Vendetta says, 'and forge?' Vendetta says, 'make amulet?' Vendetta says, 'make staff?' Huma says to Vendetta, 'Yeah, but instead of just 'tailor' you have like 5 skills.' Huma says, 'that allow to make really good items' Huma says, 'not just repair your shirt =P' Vendetta says, 'like real items?' Little-Snow Moo's at ! Vendetta says, 'with stats?' LadyAce says, 'where the components are hard to get maybe' Huma nods his agreement with LadyAce. Riley says, 'Random style or based on something?' Huma says, 'I'm sure there'll be recepies' Huma says, 'its still in its initial phase' Huma says, 'you can expect it about the same time as skill trees =P' Jesus says, 'i remember rufus babbling about similar stuff in his sl expansion.' LadyAce whaps Huma across the back of the head - your ears ring in sympathy. Freaky laughs. Huginn giggles at Huma. Huma peers around intently. Vendetta says, 'I've seen the expansions' Vendetta says, 'it's cool' Lenore no longer looks quite as distracted. Vendetta says, 'but not too cool' Vendetta ducks to the ground. Riley rolls around on the ground with laughter. Huma smirks at Vendetta. Lenore gets a distracted look on her face. Huma says, 'but no thats definately something that is a future goal' Vendetta raises his eyebrow at Lenore. Huma says, 'trade skills' Huma says, 'and...'
Huma pokes Vendetta with Kryptonite. Huma says to Vendetta, 'Go ahead.' Vendetta says, 'ok' Vendetta says, '2 part question' Vendetta says, 'which is really 2 different questions' Shivan says, 'cheatz0r' Vendetta says, 'ok first is' Huma is filled with anticipation. Vendetta says, 'How far has the process gone in deciding the specs for items being magic and stuff, and being mendable and tform and what not, I'm eager to have mara making money again' Vendetta says, 'and I want my eq to get damaged' Vendetta says, 'I said it' Shivan says, 'i don't' Shivan says, 'needless hassle' Freaky nods her agreement with Shivan. Freaky says, 'I have to say, I love the no repair/mend/tform' Huginn says, 'I haven't looked at the damage changes' Huginn says, 'which is the first step' Huginn says, 'sorry' Shivan says, 'so what he means is, "not very far at all, as a matter of fact, i have not begun" ;)' Huma says, 'I dont think it'll be terribly long time though' Huginn nods his agreement with Huma. Huma says, 'when Ruf and Huginn bang heads together stuff starts falling out that looks smart usually' Vendetta says, 'ok second part' LadyAce says, 'I'm not ready to do a broader review of materials yet, but it's on my short list.' Vendetta says, 'With all of these new wonderful (not sarcastic) new imms' Vendetta says, 'skill-trees are in tomorrow right?' Huma pets Lenore lovingly. Somar laughs. Huma says, 'yeah for sure' Huma says, 'check it out' Vendetta looks serious, this is not a joke. Huginn says, 'no' Freaky says, 'with the new management, could you guys just say it, skill trees are dead :)' Huginn says, 'and give up on that history? NEVER!' Huginn throws his head back and cackles gleefully! Freaky snickers softly.
Huma pokes Vendetta with Kryptonite. Lorenzo says, 'waitwait, I gotta scroll!' Huma says to Vendetta, 'Go ahead sir!' Lorenzo scuffles his feet around in the dirt. Vendetta says, 'ok' Vendetta says, 'Me and Rufus had a discussion at length about this already and it was very thoughtprovocking so I wanted to raise this not to get a NO from sandra or Choc, but to ponder for the future' Vendetta says, 'So, hold your NOs' Vendetta says, 'Ahem!' Huginn says to Vendetta, 'Ok.' Vendetta says, 'What say you to a complete Pwipe?' Vendetta holds for applause. Huma says, 'I'm not totally against it' Huma says, 'but it might be unfeasible =P' Vendetta says to Huma, 'imms included.' Vendetta ducks to the ground. Freaky says, 'im a pwipe person' Jesus thinks it'd be a great thing for the mud. Huginn says, 'hmm' Huma says, 'no one ever says outright NO to pwipes around here Vendetta :)' Huginn says, 'I'd rather do it a little different that a pwipe' Vendetta says, 'Maybe you could put pwipe in with skill-trees or a major code change' Huginn says, 'an equip wipe would be fine by me' Shivan says, 'heh, I've thought about a pwipe before, at this point, i'm too lazy to ever level again :P' Jesus cheers for Huginn - huzzah! Vendetta says to Huginn, 'i want the experience of everyone being level 1.' Huma says, 'I'd like that too' Vendetta says to Huginn, 'more than anything.' Huginn says, 'as for the other, I'd rather wipe eq and give people a chance to reroll, repick their stats' Huma would be all about a massive playerwipe =P LadyAce says, 'pwipes kill muds. I don't see a big gain for it.' Huma says, 'but yeah if we pwiped' Jesus says to Freaky, 'Mind a question?' Huma says, 'a lot of the people would never come back' LadyAce says, 'People lose their progress, they don't come back. It's way too discouraging, and I don't know why we'd do it' Huginn says to Vendetta, 'That help?' Vendetta says, 'yes' Huginn says, 'I'm for change' Vendetta says, 'right now I've seen someone get lvl 50 within weeks' Huma says, 'I'm for change too, but LA is right' Vendetta says, 'it's kinda sad' Huginn says, 'well there's change coming there too' Huma says, 'well I think that needs to change too Vendetta' Vendetta says, 'I DTed and got re-eqed the same night' Vendetta says, 'save for like a token' Huma says, 'well leveling changes are on the horizon' Lorenzo says, 'I sorta feel like pwipe has to remain an option, but it has so much cost to it that there has to be a really big gain too. and I don't see the gain at this time' Huma says, 'so that particular problem will hopefully be stamped down a bit' Shivan says, 'leveling could stand to be easier :P' Lorenzo says, 'but, you know, I'm new here' Huma says to Lorenzo, 'DONT SPEAK UP!' Huma whaps Lorenzo across the back of the head - your ears ring in sympathy. Huma says, 'no I'm joking' Lorenzo scuffles his feet around in the dirt. Lenore giggles at Lorenzo. Lorenzo giggles at Huma. Huma says to Lorenzo, 'Your opinion is entirely valid... scumball.' Vendetta laughs. Lorenzo snickers softly. Lorenzo says, 'aww, I can't glue self' Huma laughs. Huma says, 'ok my queue is empty' Riley says to Jesus, 'What would, uhhhhh, Riley do?' Huma says, 'was anybody else waiting to ask a Q' Vendetta says, 'I call for discipline to Jesus and Freaky' Vendetta ducks to the ground. Vendetta raises his hand. Jesus says, 'well, i'm tired of hearing it.'
Huma pokes Vendetta with Kryptonite. Vendetta says, 'give me time' Huma says to Vendetta, 'Go ahead.' Huma says, 'oh ok' Vendetta says, 'I'm not a question-machine' Jesus says, 'and spanish is cool, so :p' Vendetta ducks to the ground. Riley licks LadyAce. Vendetta says, 'um, will there ever be a way to see tattoos that artist ha in carthage?' Riley says, 'Mmmmm, strawberries.' Riley panics, and attempts to flee. LadyAce says, 'idea it for Nestor, he adds stuff to Carthage almost every week' Vendetta says, 'I won the tattoo suggestion contest and forgot my suggestion, and now I can't find my attoo' Huma nods his agreement with LadyAce. Huma says, 'like one of those tattoo parlors with a bunch of pictures on the walls and stuff' Vendetta says, 'I've spent like 50K at the guy' Vendetta sighs loudly. Rusalka wants a tattoo Rusalka looks up into the sky and ponders. Lenore ponders Vendetta's existence. Huma says, 'yeah Nestor does new stuff to that place all the time' Huma says, 'ok any other questions?' Rusalka smiles at Lenore. Lorenzo waves a welcome to Little-Snow. Hello! Huma waves a welcome to Little-Snow. Hello! Huma says, 'ok is that all?' Vendetta says, 'I've almost thought of something else' Vendetta raises his hand. Vendetta says, 'yes I got it' Lenore beams at Rusalka delightedly.
Huma pokes Vendetta with Kryptonite. Vendetta says, 'This is a hot topic' Rusalka finishes writing on a small piece of paper from Rusalka. Rusalka reads a small piece of paper from Rusalka. Huma says, 'do it' Huma rolls his eyes, exasperated with Somar. Vendetta says, 'I would like to speak my mind on this, again don't shut me down' Huginn waits. Vendetta says, 'I believe that healing bots should be allowed' Huma gets ready to shutdown the mud. Huma says, 'I dont agree :)' Vendetta says, 'Because, if the main worry is about PK' Jesus says to Vendetta, 'Rufus is pretty against it.' Vendetta says, 'then the tick timer is in place just for that reason' Huma says, 'there is actually a decent amount of precedent against it' Rusalka says, 'i personally think that they make stuff boring' Vendetta says, 'you can' by-pass tick timer... and I wouldn't support AA healers' Haley says, 'why should any of us log on to play and interact if we could just put bots out instead =)' Rusalka nods her agreement with Haley. Rusalka says, 'exactly' Huma says, 'yeah check it out Vendy' Huma says, 'this just came down' Huma says, 'its like a new supreme court case' Vendetta says to Haley, 'you can't bot to play.' Shivan says to Haley, 'Some of us like to play..and not talk to anyone.' Huma says, 'except its a decision by the admin department' Vendetta says to Haley, 'but you can bot to be helpful to people.' Huma says, 'guys its NOT gonna happen' Huma says, 'and heres why :)' Vendetta says to Haley, 'maybe if we had 100s of people on at a time, there would be enough people not to need bots.' Rusalka says, 'then go to a npc' Haley says, 'so we have all bots all over the place and then noone talks to anyone and noone helps anyone - nope, its just not gonna happen' LadyAce says, 'you know, though, I totally appreciate you bringing up something old even if we don't go along with it' Huma says, 'the most recenty ruling from the admin department stated that for all intensive purposes, being able to control another character either through your own computer or through a series of triggers' Huma says, 'is multiplaying' Vendetta says, 'I see that the bots at least help solve a problem that simply not enough people are on' LadyAce says, 'there are a ton of old ideas I'm sure we didn't deal with like we should, I think it's great to bring them back up' Huma nods solemnly. Vendetta says, 'I sense a bUTT' Little-Snow bows before Lorenzo. Vendetta says, 'or but' Huma says, 'bring up everything old, but at the same time' Rusalka says, 'or and' Lorenzo says, 'I think the numbers are growing though, for what that's worth. more people are playing' Vendetta says, 'for example' Vendetta says, 'I think marauder is amazing as a bot' Huma says, 'like I said, Admin just like last week expanded the rules to officially incorporate' Vendetta says, 'because sometimes he is the ONLY tformer available' Huma says, 'healing bots not being in the mud' Shivan says to Vendetta, 'The mob ?' Huginn says, 'not often he's not' Vendetta says to Huma, 'at which point was it that youa ddressed the player's opinion?' Vendetta says, 'sometimes, not often' Haley says, 'very often there are many others, but i think its alot better to work as a community to help each other than to have bots sittig all over the place' Haley says, 'that's not where we want to ever be with Legend.' Vendetta says to Haley, 'do you know why marauder is the only bot?' Vendetta says, 'because most people don't want to have a non-sentient bot' Vendetta says, 'they want to play on their own' Rusalka says, 'it'd be like a mud full of Non Player Characters' Shivan says, 'more would just dilute his customer base? :P' Huma says, 'he doesnt heal though' Jesus chortles with amusement. Huma says, 'so its like... different customer bases anyway :)' Vendetta says, 'I think you guys think that everybody can't wait to become a bot' Vendetta says, 'is this thing on?' Little-Snow rolls around on the ground with laughter. Huma says, 'not sure what else to say :)' Riley checks this thing. Riley says, 'Its on.' Shivan says, 'i'm on baby' Shivan licks Vendetta. Haley says, 'i dont think everyone wants to become a bot - and to be perfectly honest, i'd like to see botting gone period...' Jesus pushes you away from his thing. Little-Snow snickers softly. Vendetta says, 'so what you're saying then isn't a valid statement' Vendetta says, 'that everyone will be a bot' Rusalka says, 'other than maybe the sort where one is present but using aliases.. like during combat' Vendetta says, 'that's not true' Vendetta says, 'but have you ever sat as a hitter' Vendetta says, 'or a tank' Vendetta says, 'after you killed 3 klein guards' Vendetta says, 'at the cup' Vendetta says, 'waiting to heal for like 1 hour' Huma says, 'we're not worried about everyone in the world being a bot, its just not something we're prepared to do' Vendetta says, 'even WITH iron will?' Haley says, 'sure several times' Huginn says, 'we're planning some other options for that' Vendetta says, 'I know ALL of in-game healing' Huginn says, 'but botting isn't one of them' Vendetta says, 'and there isn't enough of it, to even heal a 700hp tank' Huginn says, 'give it some more time' Huma says, 'yeah definately something new goin in to help that out a bit' Jesus says, 'can' Vendetta says, 'a bigger playerbase would allow for more healers to be played' Huma says, 'maybe even more then a bit' Vendetta says, 'ok' LadyAce says, 'we're working on some stuff for regeneration, yes' Shivan says, 'the last thing we need is more in-game healing' Shivan frowns. Vendetta says, 'a Huma restore bot is fine too' Jesus says, 'can't we just wipe in game healing? :p' Huma says, 'well I already boy myself every night =P' Rusalka says, 'i like it' Huma says, 'er bot' Huma says, 'everynight if you guys can find me just ask me restore' Rusalka says, 'it's another way that we can reward explorers' Huma nods to himself. Rusalka says, 'it makes for variety' Shivan says, 'I'd be happy if it did not exist.' Rusalka says, 'and it can do some really interesteing things to pk' Huma says, 'like make it last 47 hours!' Vendetta says to Shivan, 'cause you got a cheap class.' Rusalka giggles. Huma says, 'so anyone else have any questions?' Rusalka has lemon drops. Shivan says, 'yeah it can ruin pk very well' Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan. Rusalka smiles at Lenore. Shivan says, 'isnt that just fun :P' Vendetta says, 'maybe just remove pk from this mud' Rusalka says, 'why ruin?' Huma says, 'ok goin goin....' Jesus says to Shivan, 'I like to think that pk is char versus char.' Vendetta raises his hand. Vendetta ducks under Huma. Rusalka says, 'or is that an entire extra conversation?' Huma laughs. Huma says to Vendetta, 'If you have a question go for it.' Jesus says to Shivan, 'Not who can run to the healer the fastest.' Vendetta says to Huma, 'i was just messing with you.' Huma says, 'oh ok' Huma says, 'ok then' Vendetta says to Huma, 'so this Q and A will never end.' Kryptonite thuds as Huma attempts to bounce it - what a klutz. Huma says, 'I just ended it' Huma says, 'meeting adjourned!'
