Q & A Index

Huma says, 'anyone got any cool uh... questions?'
Sandra smiles happily.
Somar says, 'you've got questions, we've got answers!'
Huma says, 'no no no?'
Huma says, 'weeeeeeelp'
Huma begins to twitch nervously.
Sandra says, 'hehe'
Huma says, 'so is it my fault or are we all just so approachable now you dont want to ask questions'
Reaver says, 'how bout making the london curio shop open 24 hours'
Huma says, 'heh uh... hes eccentric =P'
Huma says, 'although it seems weird since its a newbie area and stuff'
Sandra says, 'well, not necessarily, because there are 24 hour food/bandage/supply sellers there'
Freaky says, 'damnit, I wanted to bitch to huginn to'
Huma says, 'maybe thats it'
Huma says, 'no one can yell at Huginn anymore =P'
Freaky says, 'what happened to him anyway?'
Freaky says, 'hardly ever see him'
Huma says, 'ehs around'
Somar says, 'he's beyond reproach!'
Huma says, 'just not around on Q&A days recently'
Sandra says, 'he's been very busy with rl stuffage'
Freaky nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'reject your friends family and happiness and come back'
Freaky raises her hand.

Huma pokes Freaky with Kryptonite.

Huma says, 'go ahead'
Freaky says, 'IW warcry para, can that be looked at as to its frequency according to spirit? I don't think its working'
Sandra says, 'surely'
Huma says, 'I'm sure someone could'
Huma says, 'shall you bug it or shall I'
Freaky says, 'I rarely get para's off warcry due to courage/valor or Iron Will and I got 60 spirit!'
Huma says, 'aahs'
Huma says, 'well its usually pretty rare in general'
Sandra says, 'sometimes i think warcry is just wonky to begin with'
Huma says, 'but your con has something to do with it possibly'
Freaky says, 'me to'
Freaky says, '92 con is not particularly low'
Sandra says to Somar, 'You get to look!'
Huma says, 'but maybe its wonky!'
Somar is looking.
Huma says, 'FASTER!'
Freaky snickers softly.

Freaky says, 'ohh, nice tourny by the way'
Freaky pokes Huma in the ribs.
Freaky says, 'but may I make one suggestion'
Freaky says, 'can you try to establish and post tourney rules way in advance?'
Huma says, 'forwhy?'
Huma says, 'what was wrong with them?'
Freaky says, 'well then you won't have things like poeple logging on and not having everything they should before hand'
Freaky says, 'then having to recopy over pfiles and all that business'
Huma laughs.
Huma says, 'ya know... no offense'
Huma says, 'but I announced on chat like... 6 times'
Huma says, 'that I was going to copy the pfiles'
Huma says, 'and then I waited for someone'
Jalin chortles with amusement.
Huma says, 'who said can you give me 5 minutes'
Freaky says, 'well, thats nice for those people who were logged on'
Huma says, 'so I can brew these up'
Freaky says, 'but some people are not here 24/7'
Huma says, 'I copied pfiles over... like literally past the deadline for the tournament to start too'
Huma says, 'tourney 'start' time was at 3'
Huma says, 'I copied pfiles at 3:15'
Huma says, 'so I mean you couldnt possibly have had more time'
Freaky says, 'thats what I mean, if you had posted the rules days before, then people would not have excuses'
Huma says, 'you had +15 minutes of time'
Huma says, 'I'll post it'
Huma says, 'but honestly'
Huma says, 'if you cant have your stuff ready by the time the tournament starts'
Huma says, 'how much more time can I give'
Huma says, 'there was no more time available TO give'
Huma says, 'a couple people have mentioned this and I'm sorry if I'm biting your head off'
Somar says, 'emailed a note to myself to look further at warcry'
Huma says, 'it just gets to me'
Huma says, 'so yeah sorry'
Huma says, 'but honestly, I didnt copy pfiles til after 2 PM systime and the fights were supposed to start a 2pm systime'
Freaky says, 'I am just saying that if you had it posted say friday what the rules were, then you could then not have to copy stuff over, because there would be no excuses'
Huma nods his agreement with Freaky.
Huma says, 'there were some rules on the board'
Huma says, 'but like I said before since I planned on copying the Pfiles exactly when the tournament started'
Sandra says, 'I think I have a copy of my old rules, want 'em?'
Sandra giggles.
Huma says, 'I mean.....'
Huma says, 'what else is there?'
Huma says, 'how much more time can I give?'
Freaky says, 'and, thanks Somar for looking into it, Im testing 60 spirit IW dex/con combo and I think its just wonky like Sandra said'
Freaky says, 'jesus man, I said you should not be giving more time damnit, that was my point!'
Huma says, 'warcry is a weird skill, its like untrackable'
Freaky says, 'lay off me'
Huma says, 'I will, I'm still learning this whole thing'
Sandra says to Freaky, 'Did you understand what i meant on the forum post btw?'
Freaky nods solemnly.
Sandra says, 'ok cool'
Freaky says, 'I do, but do you understand my fustration?'
Huma says, 'and from now one when people say 'I'm ready' then I start the fight and they say 'I'm not ready''
Sandra says, 'yea'
Huma grumbles.
Sandra says, 'I would love to get some more results. Especially under the situation LA posted'
Huma says, 'it'd be hard to get good results as a mort'
Huma says, 'theres to many variables'
Freaky says, 'I just went from 5kg dagger to 9kg staff and see no significant difference, I was dissapointed'
Freaky nods her agreement with Huma.
Huma says, 'but we can do it'
Huma says, 'and I bet soon someone will'
Sandra says, 'you have time for that? ;)'
Huma says, 'uh not really =P'
Freaky grins evilly.
Huma says, 'but I didnt know I was in charge of running the fight system =P'
Huma says, 'wheres my copy of dex mud'
Sandra says, 'hehe'
Huma says, 'I'll solve inbalance'
Huma says, 'right now'
Somar did crunch some of the numbers on it.

Freaky says, 'hey, you guys see my tier spirit idea? someone should get right on that :P'
Huma says, 'actually I didnt whats that about'
Sandra says, 'yea, I sent it to Huginn'
Freaky says, 'ohh, just like, giving more abilities for higher spirit, ie 90 con and 60 spirit allows someone to maybe heal while standing'
Sandra says, 'it's an interesting idea, but I think right now we need to focus more on other parts of the fight system before we can tweak other areas. Damage is still a bitch'
Huma says, 'damage is insane'
Sandra says, 'but it's there for later discussion :)'
Huma shudders. Freaky nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'Bhar was beating on me and I had 100 con'
Huma says, 'and he was cutting pieces off me like a butcher'
Sandra nods solemnly. Somar raises his hand.
Freaky says, 'half damage and revamp weapons to lower weight'
Sandra says, 'well, it's a little more complicated than that'
Freaky says, 'then multiply weight by 7 or 8'
Freaky snickers softly.
Freaky says, 'of course it is, im just being a smart ass'
Huma pokes Somar with Kryptonite.
Somar really tried throwing out tons of insane formulae randomly the other day to look at damage and stuff.
Somar says to Huma, 'We hitting the ren fest this weekend, right?'
Huma shrugs in response to Somar's words.
Huma says, 'no idea'
Huma says, 'it'd be highly less fun with just you and me'
Huma says, 'or you and me and gant for instance =P'
Sandra says, 'afk a few'
Somar nods his agreement with Huma.
Somar whimpers softly.
Huma says, 'who else has questions?'
Huma peers around intently.
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'Freaky anything else?'
Huma says, 'Nadia Jalin Zq?'
Zqviimia says, 'I've never been to a Q&A before...just here to listen and observe.'
Zqviimia smiles happily.
Nadia says to Zqviimia, 'I do that all the time.'
Somar says, 'good to have you with us, anyway'
Huma says, 'they are often more full of people than this'
Huma says, 'and often involve more yelled at me :)'
Huma says, 'but anyway!'
Huma says, 'I think I will shut this baby down'
Huma says, 'seems everyones AFK or observing'
Kryptonite thuds as Huma attempts to bounce it - what a klutz.
Huma says, 'meeting adjourned'
