Q & A Index

Huma nonchalantly flips |10Kryptonite.
Jesus raises his hand.
Huma says, 'who wants a piece of me'
Huma pokes Jesus with |10Kryptonite.
Huma says, 'I choose you Jesus'
Jesus says, 'what's the status of resist stun being ungimped?'
Huma says, 'Huginns still workin on it'
Huma says, 'sorry that there hasent been enough movement recently'
Huma says, 'but we only chain him to his desk 12 hours a day at this point :)'
Jesus snickers at Huma nastily.
Axis bonks Jesus on the head!
Huma says, 'at 14 hours, like I'VE been saying'
Jesus cheers for Axis - huzzah!
Huma says, 'he'd have it done by now'
Jesus nods his agreement with Huma.
Chaykin snickers softly.
Huma says, 'but Rufus is all like blah blah blah Slave laws'
Jesus says, 'is sandra or rufus coming?'
Chaykin says, 'the thing to do is invent a way for him to code in his sleep'
Huma says, 'thats information I am not privy too'
Jesus nods his agreement with Chaykin.
Huma says, 'the comings and goings of the Gods are unknowable to a mere mortal'
Jesus says, 'hrms. i wanna discuss this whole bot thing.'
Huma says, 'oh yeah?  Well, nothing has officially been decided yet'
Huma says, 'we like to reach a plurality immediately and then in 2 weeks we convene and demand a 2/3rds majority to ratify the findings of said earlier plurality'
Jesus says, 'well, major warnings seem to have been tossed out for things that were done offline. i kinda have a problem with that, if it's the case.'
Huma says, 'I made that all up btw'
Chaykin says, 'things that were done offline?'
Chaykin says, 'or afk'
Huma nods his agreement with Chaykin.
Jesus says, 'offline., according to my source. didn't invlove me.'
Jesus says, 'but i DO xp alot on triggers, while afk.'
Huma says, 'well we probably werent using your sources'
Huma licks himself - ICK!
Jesus tickles Lachesis.
Lachesis sits down on the ground.
Jesus says, 'so it concerns me alot.'
Huma says, 'well, I guess at the end of the day the philosophy is Legend is to be played, not programmed'
Jesus says to Huma, 'I'd be interested in seeing a helpfile or rule that states one player can't write triggers for another player, offline.'
Jesus says to Huma, 'Is my point.'
Chaykin says, 'would be pretty tough to enforce'
Chaykin says, 'impossible actually'
Jesus nods his agreement with Chaykin.
Jesus says, 'not bitching, just wanna know what's up with this.'
Huma says, 'yeah there are a few people that matter in this situation'
Haley says, 'what's up?'
Chaykin smiles at Haley.
Huma says, 'its the people involved'
Huma says, 'and I cant really comment on it'
Jesus says, 'well, the same person has written many, many scripts for me.'
Haley says, 'okay lemme say what I can right now'
Jesus says, 'and helped a ton in figuring stuff out.'
Jesus beams at Haley delightedly.
A heavenly aura appears in the room, is that Lenore?
Jesus tickles Lenore.
Lenore beeps Jesus on the nose.
Haley says, 'first of all, I have no problems with people helping people with scripts and what not - what i do have a problem with, is botting on several levels.'
Haley says, 'for instance'
Haley says, 'heal botting'
Haley says, 'prep botting'
Haley says, 'specialized favored botting'
Haley says, 'and leveling botting - as in leveling while you're totally afk'
Dalia smiles happily.
Jesus looks up into the sky and ponders.
Blackmojo gasps at Dalia.
Dalia says, 'Howdy'
Jesus says to Haley, 'No offense meant, but help bot says, one of those.'
Blackmojo says, 'look what that cat dragged in'
Jesus says to Haley, 'Moreso, i asked you and sandra before setting up an xp bot. you both ok'd it.'
Haley says, 'I'm in the process of gathering some feedback'
Haley says, 'and you'll be seeing some major changes to the botting helpfile and I'll also post it to the welcome board'
Huma nods his agreement with Haley.
Dogbert says, 'i cant think of a lot of instances where an XP bot would be much good'
Jesus says, 'hmm.'
Huma says, 'we arent retroactively doing anything so'
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says, 'if you programmed it well enough it could do OK'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'I get to at least 35 on bots.'
Haley says, 'For several reasons this will be happening'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Mine does awesome, really.'
Haley says, 'one being that i've gotten complaints about killstealing with botting leveling people'
Jesus says, 'me?'
Haley says, 'two - I dont think its such a bad thing for people to actually work together to gain help in areas'
Huma nods his agreement with Haley.
Haley says, 'a game is created to "play" not go off to the mall or sleep while you get a better player.'
Jesus says, 'well, here's my thing, today.'
Blackmojo giggles.
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'you're lazy?'
Dalia says, 'hell, im lazy'
Jesus says, 'i don't know all the circumstances. but it seems someone was warned for writing triggers, offline.'
Dogbert says, 'but you're dalitaliamalia'
Dogbert tickles Dalia.
Axis says, 'what exactly is Specialized favored botting?'
Dogbert says, 'hey axis, make marauder give balm to me when I ask'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Naw, if i HAVE to xp, i'll xp.'
Axis says, 'nope he doesnt do that'
Haley says, 'customized messages for particular people, favoring people with helps - the only way to avoid something like this continuing is to eliminate it completely'
Axis says, 'he doesnt favor anyone'
Jesus says, 'ok, another question on that.'
Axis says, 'if someone wants marauder to say something about them they tell me and if its "within the rules" it can get added to Marauder when he is around to do it'
Haley says to Axis, 'You and I have already had a discussion, and I told you that I'd like you to talk to Sandra and/or Rufus if you have more questions regarding your specific situation so lets take yours offline please.'
Jesus says, 'wouldn't it be HIS responsibility, not the person writing the trigger?'
Axis nods his agreement with Jesus. 
Jesus says to Haley, 'But it applies in so many ways :('
Axis says, 'If Marauder wanted to NOT do something for say all level 50's whos to say he can or cant'
Dalia yawns.
Huma says, 'Q&A is not the time to discuss specifics in any case' 
Dalia says, 'I just came on to say hi...'
Axis says, 'its not specifics'
Dogbert says, 'the easiest way to combat very basic XP bots is to let mobs wander'
Huma waves a welcome to Dalia. Hello!
Dalia says, 'Have a good night everyone'
Huma says, 'hey Dal' 
Axis says, 'its in general'
Dalia waves happily.
A heavenly aura appears in the room, is that Sandra?
Haley says, 'as I said, I will be rewriting the bot helpfile in its entirety very shortly'
Blackmojo waves to Dalia.
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'I use hunt. :p'
Sandra says, 'I was playing in the rain!' 
Haley says, 'and once i have it all completed, you can ask as many questions as you like about it.'
Dalia says, 'Oh, and if anyone sees members of my clan, tell them im sorry I havent been around lately'
Jesus nods his agreement with Haley.
Jesus says to Haley, 'Fair enough.' 
Haley says, 'not everything is completely black and white yet, but I've told you all where i'm heading'
Haley says, 'which I think is fair.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'that can get you in trouble very fast if they figure out what you're hunting.'
Axis says, 'its black and white when I get a warning for doing nothing'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'If who figures it out?'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'imms.'
Haley says to Axis, 'Once again -- you and I have already had a discussion, and I told you that I'd like you to talk to Sandra and/or Rufus if you have more questions regarding your specific situation so lets take yours offline please.'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Haley and sandra both gave me the ok on an xp bot. why would i care?'
Haley says to Jesus, 'Which may be changing shortly - so be on the lookout.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'because the idea is if you can make it, it's obviously too easy tos cript :)'
Axis says, 'I helped him better warn me for that too'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'More complicated than you would think to do multiple mobs.'
Jesus says to Haley, 'I will.'
Sandra says, 'I think that we should let the bot thing go until a decision is made and posted'
Huma nods his agreement with Sandra.
Huma says, 'nothing official has happened yet'
Axis says, 'I got a warning thats official'
Huma says, 'when it does you'll all know almost immediately'
Jesus says, 'well, one question.'
Sandra says, 'you did, yes. And it isn't something to be discussed here'
Huma says, 'and Axis' specific case should be taken up with Haley/Sandra/Rufus'
Jesus says, 'has anyone complained about my bot?'
Axis says, 'why not?'
Sandra says, 'because I said so?'
Haley says, 'and because I said so also, twice.'
Huma says, 'because we are a question and answer forum for the whole community nothing a place for you to vent for 20 minutes'
Axis says, 'who said Im venting Im asking questions'
Haley says to Jesus, 'And yes, a couple of people have.'
Jesus doesn't see lines of people waiting to ask questions.
Axis nods his agreement with Jesus.
Dogbert says to Huma, 'stop blowing my mind! :P'
Huma licks Dogbert.
Jesus says to Haley, 'Hmm. i never, ever kill at less than full hp.'
Huma says to Dogbert, 'Good doggie.'
Sandra slowly fades into existence.
Jesus says to Haley, 'Unless the mob flees.'
Sandra says, 'stupid aura was making my cool prompt linewrap!'
Huma says, 'anywho'
Jesus says to Sandra, 'My prompt should be added to the library.'
Sandra says, 'send it to nat'
Blackmojo raises his hand.
Jesus says, '2.nat is never on.'
Sandra says, 'she was on earlier today'
Jesus says, 'aww.'
Haley nods her agreement with Sandra.
Haley says, 'she was!'
Huma pokes Blackmojo in the ribs.
Huma says, 'go ahead blackmojo'
Jesus raises his hand.
Blackmojo says, 'i heard some  of the other fighter skills were being worked on is that trye'
Huma says, 'which have been worked on?'
Blackmojo says, 'true'
Huma says, 'and which others are being worked?'
Dogbert blinks.
Sandra shakes her head.
Jesus nods his agreement with Axis.
Jesus says to Axis, 'Agreed.'
Sandra says, 'no'
Huma says, 'you are very vague =P'
Dogbert says, 'least cohesion....EVER'
Huma says, 'but I dont think any fight skills have been altered cept backstab right'
Huma says, 'nor is there plans to do so'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Be nice. :p'
Huma says, 'although next time Rufus is an insomniac... he could like I dunno code a whole new meta-fighter combat style'
Huma says, 'just for fun'
Sandra says, 'we're working on tweaking the fight system a bit. But like Huma said, no other fight skills'
Huma says, 'but I dont think he will =P'
Huma says, 'go ahead Jesus'
Huma pokes Jesus with |10Kryptonite.
Sandra says, 'dammit. it stopped raining'
Jesus says, 'no offense to current maintainers. but PLEASE tell me there'll be spellbooks for new spells that aren't in random crap hell.'
Dogbert shudders.
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says, 'yeah, that area needs to be yoinked'
Huma says, 'I know new spellbooks for new spells are all added'
Sandra says, 'There will be. But don't expect them tomorrow'
Jesus nods his agreement with Sandra.
Huma says, 'or will be added =p'
Sandra says, 'hey, I worked hard on hell!'
Jesus says to Sandra, 'Not in hell?'
Dogbert says, 'yes, you did'
Sandra says, 'it only has 1 page of bugs now! :)'
Jesus says to Sandra, 'And again, if i could find my way in, i'd go.'
Dogbert says, 'and that's the reason that some people maybe occassionally go to the steaming pile that kae built'
Sandra says, 'you all should go kill lucifer too.'
Sandra says, 'anyway!'
Dogbert shakes his head.
Sandra says, 'there will be spellbooks :)'
Dogbert says, 'nothing could make that worth it'
Jesus says to Sandra, 'Not in hell!'
Jesus stomps on Sandra's toes.
Dogbert says, 'i repeat, throw greaves and an old blinding wormy on him and I *might*get a group'
Sandra says, 'I don't have any plans to put any more in hell'
Sandra says, 'you'd be surprised'
Sandra winks suggestively at Dogbert.
Dogbert shrugs helplessly.
Dogbert says, 'i doubt it'
Jesus thanks Sandra heartily.
Dogbert says, 'i'm a very cynical person'
Sandra nods her agreement with Dogbert.
Huma chuckles politely.
Huma says, 'really Dogbert?'
Huma says, 'no way' 
KamiMiaKu gets Suger's chalice from a plain grey brocade bag.
KamiMiaKu gets a fine china teapot from a plain grey brocade bag.
Huma says, 'who else has a question'
KamiMiaKu drinks from Suger's chalice. 
Jesus snickers softly.
KamiMiaKu puts Suger's chalice in a plain grey brocade bag.
KamiMiaKu puts a fine china teapot in a plain grey brocade bag.
Dogbert raises his hand.
Huma pokes Dogbert with |10Kryptonite.
Huma says, 'go ahead'
Dogbert says, 'so since silence seems to have decided he's too cool to mud during the summer, i think I should yell at you about the fishshape'
Axis says to Jesus, 'Actually I guess what it means is I can write scripts for everyone BUT marauder.'
Dogbert says, 'how was that item unbalanced?'
Dogbert says, 'seriously, i'm racking my brain' 
Jesus says to Axis, 'That makes no sense, tho.'
Huma says, 'ruh ruh raggy'
Huma says, 'the fish shape questions'
Sandra says, 'every time we changed any friggin thing in the fight system, skills, spells, the color of the eyes of the stay puft marshmallow man, the god damn fishshape is a problem again'
Dogbert says, 'well hey, i'm sorry but people who couldnt beat me with it or had trouble i instructed how to beat me'
Sandra says, 'and we got tired of having to work around it'
Jesus says to Axis, 'Post them to your site. whoever decides to use them, can? :p'
Dogbert says, 'work around it?'
Sandra nods solemnly. 
Dogbert says, 'how do you mean'
Dogbert says, '...'
Sandra says, 'when Kaige put the leggless on it to make it 'real', we had to put all those suscepts on it because it was a mess. Then we had to make it timed, then we had to figure out more suscepts' 
Dogbert says, 'haha'
Sandra says, 'then we changed suscepts and it started all the frig over again'
Jesus snickers softly.
Sandra says, 'so, no more legless, no more suscepts' 
Dogbert says, 'thats your excuse?'
Sandra says, 'that'd be it, yep'
Dogbert says, 'oh man, you thought silence was pissed before, watch out'
Sandra says, 'he's aware of it'
Somar eats the button marked '3'.
Somar eats a gold coin.
Huma says, 'so what else?'
Dogbert says, 'so ok, you just deleted it?'
Huma says, 'no I think it still exists'
Sandra says, 'the legless flag we did!'
Dogbert says, 'no just one more thing, it was too much of a mess to just keep adding susceps?'
Dogbert sniffs sadly at Lorenzo.
Dogbert faints.
Lorenzo knocks Dogbert over and flops all over him.
Jesus gasps at Lorenzo.
Jesus falls to his knees and worships Lorenzo's existence.
Lorenzo goes EEK! in distress.
Huma says, 'its a Coding monkey people'
Huma pokes Lorenzo in the ribs.
Dogbert says, 'I'm sorry I just feel it's way too freaking convenient that item gets pulled amoung a wad of PK complaining'
Lorenzo says, 'my cat is shunnfling down my pants leg'
Lorenzo says, 'er, snuffling'
Sandra says, 'it seems silly to have to spend time revisiting a consistant problem every time something else is changed. This isn't the first time it was a problem, but it's the last. Putting up with it for 7 years'
Sandra says, 'was silly.'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'I complained alot when freaky used it, but that's about it. so stop blaming me. :p'
Chaykin says to Lorenzo, 'I thought shunnfling was another of your made-up words.'
Dogbert says, 'oh right, so backstab was a problem too?'
Lorenzo says to Chaykin, 'it does sound good.'
Axis says, 'back in 10ish'
Lorenzo says to Chaykin, 'we need a definition!'
Chaykin says to Lorenzo, 'Throwing something distasteful away.'
Huma says, 'hrrrm'
Sandra says, 'oh! it's raining again!'
Sandra jumps up and down.
Huma says, 'other questions?'
Lorenzo looks up into the sky and ponders.

Dogbert says, 'worse for wear. discuss :P'
Sandra says to Jesus, 'It hasn't rained in 42 days here.'
Jesus says to Sandra, 'Aren't you out west now?'
Blackmojo shudders.
Sandra says, 'Austin still'
Jesus nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'I cant stand stun'
Lorenzo says to Chaykin, 'that's very rich ... who's that guy, with that book?  and the other book?'
Huma says, 'it gets me killed'
Jesus says, 'oh, you're prolly getting hurricane rains then?'
Huma says, 'I will never understand this'
Blackmojo throws his head back and cackles gleefully!
Huma says, 'I use stun'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'unbeliever.'
Huma says, 'I die =P'
Huma says, 'I dont use stun'
Sandra says, 'I don't really have anything to say about wfw at the moment, except that Freaky's problem is his weapon, not stun, specifically'
Huma says, 'I win!'
Lorenzo says, 'rich someone.'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'you die because i para and kill you before you can heal :P'
Sandra says to Jesus, 'Nope, just a popup thunderstorm.'
Huma licks Dogbert.
Jesus nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'I am a cause mage and I say down with stun'
Huma says, 'its useless!'
Huma wont use it =P
Jesus says, 'stun determines fights.'
Dogbert says, 'ok ok, let me revise this a wee bit.'
Dogbert nods his agreement with Jesus.
Jesus says, 'well, position determines fights.'
Dogbert says, 'thats a very big part of it'
Jesus says, 'stun determines position.'
Dogbert says, 'bash is a good position, stun is a better position' 
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says, 'and doggie is the best position'
Dogbert ducks to the ground.
Dogbert says, 'sorry, had to'
Huma smirks at Dogbert.
Blackmojo nods solemnly. 
Jesus snickers softly.
Axis says to Jesus, 'I could write a script that calculates stun rounds/etc etc but I wont cause I don't wanna get a warning fo rit.'
Jesus spanks Dogbert playfully.
Sandra says, 'it's all a damage thing. That's what Rufus is trying to fix. Though it's currently driving him nuts' 
Jesus cackles gleefully at Axis - whatever he's going to do to him, glad it's not you!
Dogbert says, 'ok, damage thing, sure'
Huma rolls his eyes heavenward.
Huma says, 'you people and your snide remarks'
Huma says, 'I swera' 
Huma says, 'I'm gonna hate having teenagers'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'you'll be too busy working 8-8 to notice.'
Jesus says to Huma, 'I'm prolly older than you.'
Huma says, 'they're gonna be like hey I'm gonna go look at pictures of cars, like the kind my PARENTS WILL NEVER BUY ME'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'we cost $$$.'
Huma nods his agreement with Dogbert. 
Dogbert says, 'eek'
Dogbert says, 'i'm 20, no more teen'
Dogbert mopes around, depressed.
Huma comforts Dogbert.
Huma says, 'its a sad story'
Jesus says, 'god i'm too old for this.'
Huma says, 'anyway other questions'
Huma says, 'other snide remarks?'
Jesus pouts.
Dogbert says, 'ok, so basically what determines a lot of fights is stun'
Sandra nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'anyone wanna infer that I'll eat their children?'
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says to Huma, 'i was sidetracked, i had more 20 minute ranting.'
Huma says, 'oh ok'
Dogbert says, 'position'
Jesus says, 'stun + cure crit + in game healing = winlots.'
Sandra says, 'it's all currently being looked at. Really. But it's a pain in the ass slow process'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'stun = winlots.'
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'take a look at wfw length too, i've bene getting some disgusting ones latelt.'
Sandra says, 'how bad?'
Dogbert says to Sandra, '5 or 6 rounders where i can use skills on those stunned.'
Dogbert says to Sandra, '5 or 6 rounds of str mage :)'
Sandra says, 'hm'
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Ouch.'
Huma says, 'I blame Somar'
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'devastate devastate rip evisc devastate on freaky yesterday.'
Sandra says, 'ok, are they raging by chance?'
Chaykin says, 'they weren't against people with righteous angers were they?'
Sandra says, 'oh freaky is a bug'
Dogbert nods his agreement with Sandra.
Dogbert says, 'hahaha'
Sandra nods her agreement with Chaykin.
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'omg, so righteous anger = rape?'
Sandra says, 'the righteous anger's autorage is what gets him :)'
Dogbert throws his head back and cackles gleefully!
Sandra nods solemnly.
Sandra says, 'he knows too'
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'i hate to say it but thats an amazing but.'
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'bug.'
Jesus says, 'is it rage, or the weapon?'
Chaykin says, 'there seems to be a thing where getting stunned when you're autoraged = very bad'
Sandra says, 'yea it's funny'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'weapon.'
Sandra says, 'it's the autorage'
Dogbert says, 'he keeps raging before every round'
Dogbert says, 'then i just hit him for nutty damage'
Sandra giggles.
Jesus nods solemnly.
Sandra nods solemnly.
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'yeah umm, 4 rounds also still blow on str mages.'
Jesus says, 'he deserves it after that shooter he had. :p'
Sandra giggles.
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'for the other guy.'
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'and they're very very frequent.'
Sandra says, 'ok'
Sandra will send some notes to huginn and rufus.
Dogbert says, 'so um yeah, change that spell'
Dogbert says, 'please'
Dogbert says, 'for the love of god'
Jesus says, 'and sink'
Jesus ducks to the ground.
Sandra giggles at Jesus.
Huma says, 'you know what else is overpowered'
Huma says, 'look'
Huma says, 'just ANYONE can see things in the room?'
Jesus says to Huma, 'And con.' 
Huma says, 'whats with that'
Calitri chuckles politely.
Huma says, 'and con'
Sandra pokes Huma in the eye!
Huma says, 'why do we even have that stat'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'look, you're not a stunning mage, i can accept that.'
Sandra says, 'now you can with one eye!'
Huma whimpers to Sandra.
Jesus says to Huma, 'Consider, you dork, not constitution :p'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'if you want real honest truth, dig a sniper outta archive and watch spanish go to work on him :P'
Huma says, 'screw both those things'
Huma nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Huma says, 'consider and constitution'
Huma says, 'both of them are for pansies'
Jesus chortles with amusement. 
Dogbert peers around intently.
Dogbert stomps on Lenore's toes.
Huma says, 'ok who else has a question?' 
Dogbert raises his hand.
Huma says, 'yes Doggie'
Huma says, 'dont be a bad doggie'
Dogbert says, 'and do what'
Dogbert says, 'oh no, no more stun'
Dogbert says, 'now onto shoot :)'
Jesus chortles with amusement.
Dogbert says, 'which happens to--stun!'
Sandra says, 'way ahead of ya :)'
Dogbert says, 'what are we looking at'
Sandra says, 'Huginn, Rufus and I are already in discussion'
Dogbert says, 'discussion is good, btw'
Sandra nods solemnly.
Dogbert says, 'i know it's realistic, but hand shots need to do some damage'
Huma says, 'they dont even discuss stuff with me =P'
Jesus says, 'what's wrong with shoot? :p'
Dogbert says, 'maybe make you unwear some help items too'
Huma says, 'so just wait for them to come to conclusions'
Dogbert says, 'held'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'what kind of shoot you use, head or head.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'or maybe head.'
Jesus nods solemnly.
Blackmojo says, 'it suns 99% of the time'
Jesus says, 'ok, i see.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'ok, one thing.'
Dogbert says, 'just make shoot hand do some damage'
LadyAce smiles happily.
Chaykin smiles at LadyAce.
Dogbert says, '5 aims on shivan it shoots his weapon out'
Jesus kisses LadyAce.
LadyAce lives!
Sandra beeps LadyAce on the nose.
Somar cheers for LadyAce - huzzah!
Dogbert says, 'and he wears it before i get into the room and it does 0 damage'
Somar gives a glass of red wine to LadyAce.
Jesus laughs.
Dogbert says, 'that was with *no* shoot hand btw'
LadyAce thanks Somar heartily.
Dogbert says, 'that was just shoot'
Jesus says, 'location should just change effect. it should all do the same damage.'
LadyAce eats a glass of red wine.
LadyAce licks her lips and smiles.
Dogbert nods his agreement with Jesus.
Dogbert says, 'yeah'
Jesus says, 'but.'
Jesus says, 'it still won't matter'
Dogbert says, 'i dunno, i still think the gun stuns about 5-10% too much'
Jesus says, 'because stun > all else.'
Dogbert says, 'or I used to, now that I cant stab on stuns it's useless anyway'
Dogbert says, 'stunning shooting only rewards those with damroll'
Dogbert says, 'so thats cool, just tell me if you dont want any more con snipers'
Dogbert bounces onto Nadia's lap.
Nadia smiles at Dogbert.
Nadia sits down on the ground.
Dogbert says, 'i'd just like the forewarning to be able to reconfig so the build isnt garbage'
Huma says, 'I still think the biggest problem is fights dont last long enough'
Blackmojo says, 'or nasty kicks'
Dogbert nods his agreement with Huma.
Sandra says, 'taht's a damage issue'
Huma says, 'if they didnt, then one stun wouldnt matter so much'
Dogbert says, 'and also, please do something about gust, if jesus hasnt complained already'
KamiMiaKu says, 'Bah'
Chaykin says, 'yeah, too bad rufus had to back-burner that issue'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'it's chains of stunning that suck.'
Huma nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Jesus says, 'fights last longer now than  they did, it seems. maybe that's just because everyone is loading up on hp.'
Dogbert says, 'some arent'
Dogbert says, 'it's just harder to win with less'
Jesus says, 'well, there was a time when they were lasting like 5 rounds max.'
Jesus says, 'and it's gotten better. :p'
Huma nods solemnly. 
Dogbert says, 'yeah, it's now 10 rounds if we're in good shape'
Huma says, 'I'm thinkin like... lots and lots of rounds'
Dogbert says, '4 bashes kills a sniper'
Jesus nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Jesus says to Dogbert, '4 bashes kills anything.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'druid.' 
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'mage.'
Dogbert says to Jesus, 'klein battlecheese.'
Blackmojo giggles.
Jesus says to Dogbert, 'Bash is pretty low percentage, tho.'
Tweety yells, 'Heeewp! Heeewp! Gwanny!' 
Dogbert says, 'weeniebot'
Nadia rolls her eyes heavenward.
Shivan says, 'hey wow i didn't miss qna'
Jesus goes EEK! at Shivan in distress - isn't Shivan an awful person for teasing?
LadyAce pillows her head on her arms - looks like she'll be taking a nap.
Somar cheers for Shivan - huzzah! 
Blackmojo nods his agreement with Jesus.
Shivan says, 'now what did i have to bitch about'
Shivan looks up into the sky and ponders.
Dogbert says, 'snipers?'
Blackmojo lurks around Shivan ominously!
Nadia chuckles politely.
Jesus says to Shivan, 'Stun. :p'
Shivan says, 'Yes stun is underpowered, i do half rounds way too much'
Dogbert says, 'what do you have to bitch about, get the hell outta here weenie'
Jesus snickers at Shivan nastily.
Huma says, 'ok then!'
Huma says, 'who else has questions'
Dogbert raises his hand.
Shivan raises his hand.
Dogbert taunts Shivan mercilessly.
Shivan rolls his eyes, exasperated with Dogbert.
Huma says, 'go ahead Doggie'
Dogbert says, 'I was gonna make a snide remark but i'm fresh out'
Dogbert shrugs helplessly. 
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'you cant PK.'
Huma says, 'oh ok'
Sandra thanks Dogbert heartily. 
Huma says to Shivan, 'You go ahead.'
Huma pokes Shivan with |10Kryptonite.
Shivan says, 'how come a missed backstab doesn't initiate combat, you can use a augment after someone misses backstab on you'
Shivan says, 'or heal'
Huma says, 'I dont rightly know why'
Shivan says, 'well where is the lazy head coder'
Sandra says, 'sounds bug-ish'
Huma nods his agreement with Sandra.
Huma says, 'bugit!'
Jesus says, 'backstab is buggy like that too.'
Calitri says, 'also how come if you BS and someone else hits before the first round with say kick the person who kicks gets hit'
Jesus says, 'landing one, that is.'
Shivan says, 'sounds like backstab is iffy on initiating combat'
Sandra says to Calitri, 'That's probably related.'
Jesus says, 'i remember invis snipers backstabbing and fleeing, staying invis.'
Dogbert peers at Jesus, looking him up and down.
Jesus pats Dogbert on the head.
Dogbert stretches out beside Nadia - nothing like subtlety...NOT!
Huma says, 'yeah thats just a bug'
Huma says, 'mebbe =P'
Nadia snickers at Dogbert nastily.
Shivan says, 'hows that'
Shivan says, 'oops'
Shivan says, 'i meant to see landed backstab :P'
Shivan says, 'say*'
Huma claps for Shivan approvingly.
Huma says, 'I'm ok with that bug report'
Huma says, 'so what else'
Huma says, 'whos got other questions'
Shivan says, 'drat i had othe rthings i wanted to bring up, why didnt i write them down'
Huma says, 'doh!'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'because you are t3h weeniebot.'
Nadia whaps Dogbert across the back of the head - your ears ring in sympathy.
Shivan says, 'I missed qna like 4 times'
Shivan says to Dogbert, 'You are a stuck record.'
Dogbert says to Nadia, 'what, he gummyis!'
Dogbert says to Shivan, '...weenie!'
Nadia says to Dogbert, '...I give up.'
Nadia sighs loudly.
Huma says, 'yeah Dogberts greatest hits track 1 - whats the deal with WFW'
Huma says, 'Track 2 - aimed shooting sucks'
Dogbert says, 'someone's getting sniped later :P'
Huma says, 'track 3 - why doesnt shoot hand do anything'
Dogbert threatens Huma.
Shivan says, 'can we hardcode it so that when someone says "weenie" it adds Iam in front of it?'
Jesus says to Huma, 'Track 2 - sandra can't pk.'
Huma nods his agreement with Jesus.
Dogbert peers at Huma, looking him up and down.
Huma winks suggestively at Dogbert.
Dogbert says to Huma, 'aimed shooting or called shots.'
Shivan says, 'hey he shot my weapon out of my hand'
Huma says to Dogbert, 'Called shot.'
Dogbert says, 'yeah'
Shivan says, 'i wielded it during shoot lag and took 0 damage'
Huma says, 'its a typo on the CD jacket'
Huma says, 'so what else?'
Huma says, 'what other questions?'
Shivan says, 'uh'
Shivan says, 'ok i kind of have a question but its based on hearsay'
Shivan says, 'someone was going on about spells that do over damcap being lowered.. no spells do more than damcap, whats the dealie :P'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'rubedo said that and he's right.'
Shivan says, 'he's wrong' 
Shivan says, 'Talking to imms, not stubborn annoying people.'
Huma says, 'spells that go over damcap?'
Sandra says, 'yes, we're looking on lowering damage on spells for pk'
Shivan says, 'I just want to make clear, that the highest damage spell does 10% less than damcap'
Dogbert says to Sandra, 'so, he's asking: theoretically can a watery death do over 103 damage?'
Shivan says, 'i've never seen it do more than 90ish'
Sandra says, 'lemme look'
Nadia yawns. 
Huma says, 'I am having Somar run this down =P'
Huma says, 'and by have him do it'
Huma says, 'hes looking of his own choice'
Shivan says to Dogbert, 'He also insisted damcap in pk was 80, until i showed him logs of me taking 101 and 98 on damcaps.'
Lenore gives a big hug to everyone in the room.
Lenore slowly fades into existence.
Sandra says, 'yes it's possible'
Shivan says, 'wow :D'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'you lose :P'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'in theory, not in PK :('
Dogbert mopes around, depressed. 
Blackmojo says, 'ive done 90 hps on rips'
Sandra giggles. 
Shivan says, 'Anyways I don't think spell damage needs lowering, i'm biased though :D'
Shivan says, 'rip has a huge range'
Huma giggles at Shivan.
Jesus says to Blackmojo, 'Messages overlap.'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'you win your fights on spell damage dumbo.'
Huma says, 'I'm with Shivan on that!'
Shivan says, 'like 70-90'
Shivan says to Dogbert, 'Yeah and i never use firestorm anymore.'
Huma says, 'so who else has Qs?'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'you finally discovered lava flow.'
Huma says, 'I may have an A' 
Lorenzo says, 'what's lava flow?'
Jesus says to Shivan, 'Lavaflow?'
Jesus nods solemnly.
Shivan says to Huma, 'Why are all my clanmates inactive jackarses?'
Jesus says, 'lavaflow rocks.' 
Dogbert says to Lorenzo, 'go ic and firestorm huma a few times then lava flow him.'
Dogbert says to Lorenzo, 'see what does more damage.'
Huma says to Shivan, 'Look at your clan name for the second reason.'
Somar says to Shivan, 'Because you make Bryant Gumbell look like Malcolm X.'
Huma says, 'but yeah the flow is good times'
Nadia stretches, you hear several loud snaps - maybe a massage would help?
Huma says, 'cant mess with lavaflow'
Dogbert says to Somar, 'gumbell 2 gumbell!'
Dogbert massages Nadia's shoulders.
Shivan laughs.
Huma says, 'not with a stick you cant mess with it'
Nadia thanks Dogbert heartily.
Huma says, 'who else has q's?'
Huma peers around intently.
Dogbert raises his hand.
Huma brandishes |10Kryptonite menacingly.
Huma pokes Dogbert with |10Kryptonite.
Dogbert says, 'so these tennagers you gonna have--what are their names?'
Shivan says, 'oh hrm i had some thoughts on the discussions board posts, but those belong there'
Goin'fishin says, 'Make tumble work against bashes better'
Huma says, 'my kids?'
Huma says, 'Isoceles Henry'
Huma says, 'will be my son'
Shivan says, 'good god'
Somar says, 'ah, I forgot you were going to name one Isoceles'
Somar jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Huma!
Huma says, 'and I'm gonna sell the naming rights to my daughter'
Huma says, 'so like... Halliburton'
Dogbert says to Huma, 'golden palace?'
Huma says, 'or Coca-Cola Henry'
Shivan says, 'Levi?'
Huma nods his agreement with Dogbert.
Dogbert says to Huma, '.com.'
Somar says, 'just change surname based on naming rights'
Sandra says, 'probalby end up being ebay dot com'
Chaykin waves happily.
Huma says, 'golden Palace Casino.com Henry'
Dogbert nods his agreement with Huma.
Somar says, 'Hayley McDonald's!'
Huma nods solemnly.
Somar says, '(that was a character in a book I just read.. w00t)'
Huma says, 'I think I can make enough to send them to college that way'
Shivan raises his hand.
Huma pokes Shivan with |10Kryptonite.
Huma says, 'go ahead'
Shivan says, 'whats the deal with sink---people who have 30 less mind than me eat my spells more than half the time'
A heavenly aura appears in the room, is that Sasha?
Jesus gasps at Sasha.
Shivan says, 'knew i had something to bitch about'
Jesus says to Sasha, 'Well, THAT was a long 5 minutes!'
Jesus bonks Sasha on the head!
Huma says, 'yeah I dunno what the deal with sink is' 
Huma says, 'we get lots of complaints about it'
Huma says, 'but I think at the end of the day its supposed to be that way?'
Shivan says, 'Should it be that way? Maybe i'll start a discussion.' 
Huma says, 'but Huginn has volunteered to look it up'
Dogbert says, 'mage on druid violence is so wrong'
Huma says, 'perhaps'
Dogbert says, 'mage and druid on sniper violence is the way of the future'
Shivan says, 'like when I can't freakin cast on teh druid ? :P'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'n00bed0 says you always break his sink.'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'is complaint is you break it too often :P'
Shivan says, 'he ate 3 spells in a row'
Dogbert laughs.
Shivan says, 'the other day'
Huma winces in sympathy with Shivan.
Huma says, 'thats some bad luck'
Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan.
Shivan says, '60 mind owns me :P'
Jesus says to Shivan, 'I've been bitching for months about sink.'
Shivan says, 'but I break 100 mind about the same...'
Huma says, 'but someone may look at it'
Shivan says, 'something seems wrong about that'
Huma says, 'probably is'
Huma says, 'someone is gonna look' 
Huma says, 'or is looking' 
Shivan says, 'awesome'
Jesus looks up into the sky and ponders.
Jesus says to Huma, 'No one would look for me, but shivan bring sit up and we're all over it? :p' 
Shivan says, 'well just to occupy everyone, has anyone asked about in progress zones yet tonight?'
Huma says to Jesus, 'I listen to people when they say things!'
Huma says to Jesus, 'Not when they just are like I'm done talking about this blahblah.'
Jesus says to Huma, 'Uh huh..'
Nadia stretches out on an icpali chair, purring as she makes herself comfy.
Huma says, 'Tartarus will be here soonly'
Jesus says, 'soonly?'
Huma says, 'sooner rather then later'
Huma says, 'I dont run the department'
Shivan says, 'remember to use the bullwhip on nestor, gets 'im goin good'
Huma says, 'but its in the final stages' 
Huma says, 'well all the official construction is done'
Somar says, 'nestor's been bullwhipped'
Shivan says, 'how about uhhhhh'
Huma says, 'if it were a building we would be walking around getting electricuted by badly installed light switches'
Jesus says, 'day, month, 3 months?'
Shivan says, 'what else was semi-close'
Somar says, 'but he likes it ... so we had to resort to just letting him go about his business the way he does'
Huma says to Jesus, 'Somewhere in the middle of the last two probably.'
Shivan says, 'black forest?'
Jesus says, 'nice.'
Huma says to Jesus, 'But thats just conjecture on my part.'
Jesus says to Shivan, 'Sl2 is somewhere in there.'
Shivan nods solemnly.
Shivan says, 'right'
Shivan says, 'rufus has been doing sl2 for like a year now :D'
Jesus nods his agreement with Shivan.
Huma says, 'dont give the Ruf dawg to much crap'
Huma says, 'hes doin everything'
Shivan says, 'But I am a demanding consumer!'
Huma says, 'so any other Q's?'
Dogbert says, 'he's even doing somar?'
Shivan says, 'And an american! i expect things now!'
Dogbert ducks to the ground.
Huma says to Shivan, 'Then take up a collection and pay Rufus :)'
Somar says, 'nah, I'm celebate'
Huma says to Dogbert, 'Surprisingly, yes he is doing Somar.'
Huma says, 'Somar is a liar'
Dogbert says to Somar, 'you'd so do Data.'
Huma says, 'and a coward'
Shivan says to Somar, 'And i'm the nicest friendliest guy on the mud.'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'dak's friendlier.'
Huma says, 'I am challenging him to a duel'
Dogbert says to Shivan, 'and nephiel's nicer.'
Nadia cheers wildly!
Nadia blinks.
Huma says, 'but Somar IS Data'
Dogbert massages Nadia's shoulders.
Huma says, 'so anyway no other questions?'
Dogbert goes EEK! at Huma in distress - isn't Huma an awful person for teasing?
Huma peers around intently.
Nadia beams at Dogbert delightedly.
Dogbert says, 'then dont challenge him to a duel if you're a rogue borg!'
Dogbert says, 'he'll get angry and keel you'
Shivan says, 'looks like its hobnob with huma time'
Huma nods his agreement with Shivan.
Huma says, 'ok I am calling Q&A to a close unless anyone else needs anything'
