Q & A Index



Huma says, 'so whatsup kids'
You do a slow fade as Nadia whines at Huma, hoping she won't get to you too.
Freaky says, 'ok, so can we get some sort of update on what is now in the future of legend after we are starting to get past the hard drive hiccup'
Huma comforts Nadia.
Huma says, 'Somar is all kinds of sick'
Nadia licks Huma.
Nadia nods her agreement with Huma.
Jasamai goes EEK! at Nadia in distress - isn't Nadia an awful person for teasing?
Jasamai says to Nadia, 'You caught it from somar!'
Jasamai ducks under Nadia.
Nadia shakes her head.
Huma says, 'now in the future of legend'
Huma says, 'well'
Nadia says to Jasamai, 'Not at all.'
Huma says, 'Post-50 game'
Nadia laughs.
Huma says, 'new areas'
Freaky says, 'post 50 game?'
Jasamai looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma says, 'yeah... we are adding a way to improve your character past the level 50 barrier'
Freaky says, 'that coming soon?'
Jasamai claps for Huma approvingly.
Huma says, 'and its not even as far away as skilltrees'
Huma says, 'uh... not like next month kinda close but not years from now'
Quimby says, 'will we even be alive for all that to happen, some us aren't getting any younger ya know'
MrWhite waves happily.
Huma says, 'we got pretty derailed'
Krista smiles at MrWhite.
Huma says, 'we'll see what happens'
Quimby points at Jade.
Freaky nods solemnly.
Jade raises an eyebrow inquiringly.
Quimby says, 'look at jade and how old she is'
Huma says, 'almost all experimental code survived I recall hearing'
Huma says, 'so'
Huma says, 'I dont think we got to derailed in that sense'
Freaky says, 'cool'
Huma says, 'but it might take time'
Huma says, 'anyway post-50 is sweet'
Quimby pats Jade on the head.
Huma says, 'you'll likey'
Jade says to Quimby, 'I'm old. :p'
Huma has created an icpali chair!
Freaky says, 'so, numbers are way up with xp being turned up, any comments?'
Huma looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma says, 'they have been up recently I've noticed'
Jasamai says, 'post 50 game = maybe i won't idle constantly'
Jasamai claps for herself because no one else will.
Nadia pets Jasamai lovingly.
Huma says, 'I hope they stay up, but the XP will be headed back down soon enough'
Quimby says, 'does the post 50 game mean i won't be'
Quimby says, 'BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED'
Freaky says, 'that may be a mistake if you folks are interested in bring people in'
Quimby says, 'so much'
Freaky says, 'for the first time in a long time people are acctually having fun leveling'
Huma says, 'if we leave it up forever we have the fear that we'll make the game 'too easy''
Jasamai says, 'that uber xp you have going now is awesome'
Huma says, 'or at least I have that fear'
Jasamai snickers softly.
Quimby says, 'so cut it in half'
Quimby says, 'exp running the way it was was a drag'
Jade nods her agreement with Freaky.
Krista nods solemnly.
Jasamai nods her agreement with Quimby.
Freaky says, 'yup'
Huma says, 'XP running can be a drag thats true'
Freaky says, 'I fear turning it back at this point, I love the recent trend of people'
Krista nods solemnly.
Jasamai nods solemnly.
Freaky says, 'how long we got this xp bonus for?'
MrWhite says, 'its to easy freak the reason you level and pre title means somthing is cause it was not given to you'
Huma says, 'there hasnt been a ton of discussion about leaving it'
Huma nods his agreement with MrWhite.
Huma says, 'thats what we're afraid of'
Huma says, 'we don't want to have a disposable character situation'
Huma says, 'XP bonus was one month from start date'
Freaky says, 'post 50 would take that fear of disposable characters if done right'
MrWhite says, 'if the game gets easy its not fun'
Huma says, 'so, one month from monday I think?'
Jade says, 'well, pretitle is a bit much, currently.'
Ephiny says, 'when's the xp bonus going to drop?'
Jasamai says, 'when does it end?'
Jade says to Jasamai, '30 days i think.'
MrWhite says, '1 /11'
Jasamai says, 'from the start.  but i meant from now.'
Jasamai nods her agreement with MrWhite.
Ephiny nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'like I said... a month from last monday'
Huma says, 'this most recent monday'
Huma says, 'you do the math'
Freaky says, 'personally, If the code is years off, if you could maybe revamp that to a couple months off for the post 50, if it could be done, and if it was done right, having mondo xp won't matter'
Freaky says, 'in relation to disposable characters'
Ephiny says, 'sorry i was oow ;P'
Ephiny squeezes Huma's nose and says, 'HONK HONK.'
Huma knocks Ephiny over and flops all over her.
Huma says, 'code isnt years off'
Freaky says, 'and, we allready have a disposable character problem with the old xp'
Freaky shrugs helplessly.
Huma nods solemnly.
Krista nods solemnly.
MrWhite says, 'your talking about the future iam talking about now'
Huma says, 'well, we dont want to just increase our problem'
Jade says, 'i've been playing here for 10 years. i've never had a pretitle. or a char to 100 mill.'
Huma nods solemnly.
Freaky says, 'Ive had characters that hit near 400 mil, but thats cause im a freak'
Jasamai comforts Huma.
MrWhite says to Jade, 'me either i respect those who do  if it was easy to get well...'
Huma says, 'well, right now we are happy with the XP situation'
Jade says, 'in this xp, i can see it, in the old, no way.'
Huma giggles at Freaky.
Huma says, 'you are indeed a freak'
Huma says, 'so who has questions'
Freaky nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'we normally do the raise hand thing'

Krista giggles.
Nadia giggles at Huma.
Jasamai smirks.
Freaky says, 'er, yet'
Huma says, 'so yeah raise hands if you have questions'
Freaky says, 'starting yet so I just started talking :P'
Huma nods his agreement with Freaky.
Jade says, 'not saying it should be simple to get a pretitle, just simpler.'
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'wouldnt be nearly as COOl then'
MrWhite nods his agreement with Huma.
Huma says, 'part of cool stuff is rarity/having to work for it'
Jade says, 'well.'
Quimby says, 'oops almost drownded my keyboard'
Jade says, 'there's multiple ways to get anything.'
Jade says, 'except pretitles.'
Huma nods his agreement with Jade.
Huma says, 'so pretitles are special'
Boyd says, 'you can win pretitles in contests.'
Jasamai says, 'i think its a bit extreme as it is now.'
Jasamai shrugs helplessly.
Quimby says, 'my coke runneth over'
Jasamai goes EEK! at Quimby in distress - isn't Quimby an awful person for teasing?
Huma says, 'well... win a Expie'
Jade says, 'expies gives out what, two pretitles?'
Huma comforts Quimby.
Jasamai says, 'oh i wouldn't win.'
Jasamai smirks.
Quimby says, 'one'
Huma says, 'well, its something to work at'
Jade nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'which I think is an OK thing for a game to have'
Krista nods solemnly.
Quimby yells, 'BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED BORED'
Jade says to Huma, 'Point being the system is built around one single aspect.'
Quimby is staggered by Jasamai's spam!
Huma says, 'we already have so few true accomplishments in the game'
Huma says, 'that I feel its ok to keep pretitles the way they are'
Jade says to Huma, 'An aspect i personally hate.'
Huma says, 'whats that aspect'
Jade says, 'xp grind.'
Jasamai grins evilly.
Huma says, 'well I mean... its a RPG =P'
Nadia snickers softly.
Huma giggles.
Jade rolls her eyes heavenward.
Huma says, 'I mean what do you want from me'
MrWhite licks Krista.
Huma says, 'third person shooter action?'
Jasamai says, 'i just think maybe it'd be cooler if there were new ways to get it'
Huma says, 'first person real time strategy?'
Krista smiles at MrWhite.
Jade says to Huma, 'Forget it smartass.'
Huma licks Jade.
Jade ponders Huma's existence.
Boyd says, 'Third person shooter action? I think I have that video.'
Huma says, 'well, its my belief that some things in this game have to be hard to get'
Jasamai says, 'no i mean the xp'
Krista nods solemnly.
Jasamai says, 'the current way is the same thing over and over'
Jasamai shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'we have already boned gold, and EQ, and level 50'
Huma says, 'those are easy to get'
Jade nods her agreement with Jasamai.
Krista nods her agreement with Huma.
Huma says, 'there are a TON of quests in the game'
Huma says, 'and there are group runs'
Huma says, 'and a bunch of different areas'
Krista nods her agreement with Huma.
Jasamai says, 'really?'
Huma says, 'yes, at the end of the day the only way to truly advance your character is XP'
MrWhite says, 'not to mention the new movie house going in'
Krista nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'you're right that is the crux of the game'
Huma says, 'but what else do you reccomend?'
Jasamai says to MrWhite, 'Movie house?'
MrWhite giggles.
Jade says, 'well.'
Huma says, 'if you guys have a suggestion I'd love to hear it'
Huma says, 'hey, in my personal opinion I'd completely rework EQ in the game, make it harder to get :)'
Krista shudders.
Jade says, 'a multi, a color, and two nons = pretitle.'
Huma says, 'thats just me'
Jasamai smirks.
Jade says, 'agreed?'
Krista shakes her head.
Huma says, 'well thats what we have on the redeem list'
Huma says, 'but it doesnt equal it no'
Jade says, 'so that's the eqaul.'
Huma says, 'because we've made pretitles rarer then those items'
Krista nods solemnly.
MrWhite opens MrWhite's Scavenger Hunt Bag.
Jade says, 'you have those two options, therefor they're the same.'
Huma says, 'naw, anyone can get a multi 2 singles and a non or whatever'
Huma shakes his head in disagreement.
Huma says, 'they obviously are not :)'
MrWhite closes MrWhite's Scavenger Hunt Bag.
Krista says, 'there has to be something in this game that takes a lot to get'
Jade says, 'that's my point. they SHOULD me.'
Jade says, 'be.'
Huma says, 'they may be on the same part of the list'
Krista says, 'I reckon'
Jasamai says, 'i don't think you should buy pretitles.'
Krista says, 'it means more when you ge there'
Jasamai says, 'thats silly.'

Norgoth begs Quimby for assistance -  aren't you glad YOU'RE self-sufficient?
Jade says, 'that's not my point. jas'
Huma says, 'well I agree'
Huma says, 'we should make multis as rare as pretitles'
Huma says, 'to many multis out there'
Jade says, 'my point is the redeem equivalent is WAY easier to get.'
Huma nods his agreement with Jade.
MrWhite says, 'i like multies'
Huma says, 'and I'm saying that in my opinion I feel we should err to the side of making things HARDER to get'
Norgoth has never had a multi in 8 years
Huma says, 'we should bring things up to the level of pretitle'
Huma says, 'not the other way around'
Quimby says, 'well i think a multi clor coupon option onthe first redeem is a good idea, gives a level 50 something to shoot for if they do not wish the pretitle'
MrWhite raises his hand.
Huma says, 'yeah right now a multi is probably worth 1 redeem... dunno though'
MrWhite says, 'o sorry no'
Huma says, 'I like pretitles right where they are, I dont see a problem with having something you actually have to work for in the game'
Quimby says, 'its 3 redeems'
Huma says, 'its part of the game'
Huma pokes MrWhite with Kryptonite.

Huma knocks Haley over and flops all over her.
Huma says, 'oh ok'
Huma says, 'so who else has questions'
MrWhite grovels before Haley.
Nadia licks Haley.
Quimby pinches Haley and you wonder what she will do back.
Quimby ducks under Haley.
Krista smiles at Haley.
Haley says, 'ow!'
Ephiny says, 'my haley!'
Jasamai sits on Haley's purple bean bag.

Huma says, 'you see someone and you're like 'wow that guy rules''
Norgoth says to Haley, 'when you gonna give us a pole dance?'
MrWhite says, 'um i love what you did to the place :)'

Jade snickers at MrWhite nastily.
Jade says to Huma, 'It was luck.'
Huma nods solemnly.
Quimby nods to himself.
Huma says, 'its luck to even get a KZ group'
Jade says to Huma, 'But, luck CAN play into getting them.'
MrWhite giggles.
Haley says, 'what's up with the pretitles?'
Jade pats Huma on the head.

Huma chuckles politely.
Quimby waves a small piece of paper marked 'Petition to get Grumpy Old Bastard Description'.
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'so anyway'
Huma says, 'no questions at all eh'
Jade burps loudly.
Boyd says to Quimby, 'That's five redeem points.'
Jade raises her hand.
Haley says, 'well if you guys have an idea that is something totally neat and out of the norm on how we could get them instead of redeeming, idea it, and I'll make sure it gets to a discussion with the godlist'
Norgoth has lost link.

Jade says, 'sandra keeps promising new shit, when do we get it?'
Huma pokes Jade with Kryptonite.
Norgoth has reconnected.

Huma says, 'dont swear we're recording'
Haley says, 'its always need to put something new in the game on ways to achieve things'
You do a slow fade as Jade whines at Huma, hoping she won't get to you too.
Huma says, 'this is going into a public forum'
Quimby says, 'yeah don't say sh!t'
Haley says, 'we can axe the swear word out :p'
Haley says, 'there's lots of swearing in all the Q&As :p'
Huma shrugs helplessly.
Quimby says, 'mostly sandra's'
Huma says, 'well fine swear all you want then'
Quimby swears loudly: @*&^%@*&!
Haley says to Jade, 'Right now we need to get thru the reimburses then you'll definately see new things.'
Huma nods his agreement with Haley.
Huma says, 'Freaky asked already'
Haley says to Jade, 'We have a month for reimburses, and then we are going to do housing reimburse stuff.'
Huma says, 'we got lots of stuff in the pipeline'
Huma says, 'Dartmoor, Post-50 game'
Jade says to Haley, 'It's all part of the immortal conspiracy against me. i think chaykin heads it.'
Huma says, 'those are a couple of the exciting stuff on the way'
Norgoth says, 'oh yeah I lost 15 multis 10 songles 10 nons and a mundane in the crash'
Haley says, 'and we have everyone deployed on that stuff right now so we can handle them as quickly as posslbe'
Norgoth ducks to the ground.
Huma says, 'silk road china'
Huma looks up into the sky and ponders.
Haley says, 'we've done 100 reimburses in less than 2 days already'
Norgoth raises his hand.
Huma says, 'thats three things I can think of'
Nadia pets Haley lovingly.

Huma says, 'just not a billion braind to do them'
Jasamai says to Haley, 'I'm still confused about the mage reimburse.  i lost a whole level 44 character.'
Jade says to Huma, 'Hey, i was nice to you with my mage. :p'
You do a slow fade as Jasamai whines at Haley, hoping she won't get to you too.
Huma nods his agreement with Jade.
Huma says to Jade, 'You were very kind.'
Haley says to Jasamai, 'Okie want me to explain it?'
Jade says to Huma, 'And you won't even give me rudh!'
Nadia nods her agreement with Haley.
MrWhite says, 'brb'
Jasamai says, 'that would be giid'
Nadia ducks to the ground.
Jasamai says, 'good even'
Haley says, 'okie here's how this works...'
Norgoth has been very nice, has only asked for 1 thing so far =P
Haley says, 'we arent' reimbursing quests at all, so thats' why we arent doign rudh and mrti, to address jade's question'
Jade says to Huma, 'He hit 50 y learning words, btw.'
Haley says, 'but for a mage for instance'
Nadia mopes around, depressed.
Haley says, 'you were level 50 whe the crash happened'

Haley says, 'I think huma started him off'
Huma nods solemnly.
Huma pants.
Nadia pets Huma lovingly.
Haley says, 'and then he's been back to see us, where we append to his file on the board each time'
Haley says, 'gave two levels and two more pieces of equipment'
Haley says, 'and then off he goes again to get more words'
MrWhite raises his hand.
Jasamai says, 'uh ya lost me.  i don't get what this board is for'
Haley says, 'then comes back -- doesnt have to be tothe same immortal because we're keeping such good notes on each individual'
Norgoth says, 'to keep track of what they did so far'
Huma says, 'dont worry about the board so much, it just helps us keep track of your progress'
Jade says to Jasamai, 'So you can use different imms.'
Haley says, 'its a redemption board for the immortals'
Norgoth shrugs philosophically.
Haley says, 'so that we can keep track of who's been reimbursed'
Haley says, 'and what they've been reimbursed for'
Quimby says, 'haha i lucked out ion the xp part, i lost 12 mil in the halloween game'
Haley says, 'whether levels, equipment, strings, or money'
Haley says, 'oh and the halloween whois we're redeeming'
Krista nods solemnly.
Krista smiles happily.
Haley says, 'so if you have already redeemed but didnt ask for that, be sure to come back to us, and we'll set that flag on you'
Huma nods his agreement with Haley.
Quimby says, 'i couldn't get past kane and damien'
Haley says, 'and on another note regarding that'

MrWhite says, 'ok'
Huma says, 'gonna have to do it yourself'
Huma says, 'sorry boss'
Quimby says, 'haha i stll think a player wipe with us all getting the 4x exp would of been a lot more fun'
Jade raises her hand.
Haley says, 'the words are your responsibilities =('
Huma pokes Nadia with Kryptonite.
Nadia says to Haley, 'I was just curious, I was told to make a list of the strings that I had before the crash and such. Should I add on to the list that I did have a redeem point, or would it be easier if I just sorta forgot about it?'
Huma says, 'go ahead Nadia'
Haley says, 'just like redoing the quests.'
Huma says, 'Redeems are easy to add'
Huma says, 'if you dont mind me answering Haley'
Huma says, 'takes us 2 seconds'
Quimby says, 'how come i didn't get my redeem point'
Quimby looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma says, 'you can certainly add it'
Quimby says, 'i just thought of that'
Haley says to Nadia, 'I'm not sure what we doing about redeems. because they are experience based, so let me get that question to the depthead list and we'll post the answer to the welcome board.'
Quimby says, '70 million most exp i ever had'
Jade says, 'you're doing xp, or just redeems, then?'
Huma says, 'I actually dont know what we're doing'
Nadia says, 'Oh, alright. And when I finish the list of strings, do I just ask an Imm to redeem like EQ was done?'
Huma says, 'Haleys right we havent discussed that =P'
Huma says to Nadia, 'Yeap.'
MrWhite raises his hand.
Nadia says, 'Oh, all right then! Thanks.'
Nadia smiles happily.
Huma nods solemnly.
Huma pokes Jade with Kryptonite.
Huma says, 'go ahead Jadipoo'
Jade says, 'erm, Topple.'
Haley says, 'sec scrolling back i might be able to answer'
Huma says, 'what ab00t it'
Haley says, 'we aren't doing post 50 xp'
Quimby says to Huma, 'that prize machine neds another part to it, one to put the crappy prizes into it, for a chance at another prize:)'
Jade says, 'the best i can figure, with optimal stats, i'm getting like a 30% success rate. is this intentional?'
Huma giggles at Quimby.
Huma comforts Quimby.
Haley says, 'which is why we have done the 4 times multiplyer'
Jade says, 'vs. mobs.'
Haley says, 'but i will find out about redeems for y'all'
Quimby nods solemnly.
Huma says, '30% increase against mobs?'
Huma says, 'er success?'
Quimby says, 'don't i get one at 50 mil'
Huma says, 'I honestly have no idea'
Jade says, '30% SUCCESS rate against mobs.'
Haley nods her agreement with Quimby.
Haley says, 'you would yes'
Huma says, 'mobs have all 100's in stats'
Jade says, 'and a 10% reversal rate.'
Huma says, 'so I'm sure that has something to do with it'
Huma says, 'as I recall'
Haley says, 'did you not get one and you went over that in the past two days?'
Huma says, 'you brought this up I dunno... 3 weeks ago?'
Quimby says, 'i dont think so i had 29 million when i logged on sunday'
Huma says, 'and Rufus said he was checking it out?'
MrWhite says, 'hitter needed'
Jade says, 'well. they have 100 con, you can still headbutt them more than 30% at 100 con.'
Haley says, 'okay let me ask about that also'
Jade says, 'i did? no.'
Quimby says, 'who knows thats the problem with being an old character'
Jade says, 'someone else mighta.'
Haley says to Jade, 'What are you talking about/'
Jade says, '3 weeks ago i didn't have a char that toppled.'
Huma says, 'if you dipped under 50 mil then went back over you dont get one'
Haley says, 'too many questions at one time - lets slow this down huma.'
Quimby says, 'i can't recall all the details about myself'
Jade shrugs helplessly.
Jade says, 'i'm done. whatever.'
Quimby says, 'thats what i dont know about'
Huma giggles.
Haley says to Jade, 'And you have one now?'
Huma says, 'I've been answering his question'
Jade says to Haley, 'We're moving on.'
Haley says, 'well one question at a time helps :)'
Haley says, 'then we dont have mass confusion here.'
Jade thought is was his turn.
Huma giggles at Haley.
Quimby says, 'sorry my fault'
Huma says, 'you feel free to run it if you'd like'
Jade waited quietly and everything.

Huma says, 'but hes gone'
Quimby says, 'careful i might turn into something else, god knows what'
Haley says, 'if any of you have questions, just drop me a tell, thanks guys'
Jade chortles with amusement.
Huma says, 'anyone else have any questions?'
Quimby says, 'working overnights is mor relaxing for me'
Krista knocks LivorMortis over and flops all over him.
Jade says to LivorMortis, 'It lives.'
LivorMortis peers around intently.

Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'eh its better then 0 questions'
Jade says, 'fine.'
Krista nods her agreement with Huma.
Krista giggles.
Rufus says, 'well, the thing I've noticed about tumble is, in game, it seems to go off WAY more often than the code says it should, and I haven't figured out that discrepancy yet.'
Jade says to Rufus, 'Approx. 95 dex/con and i'm getting barely a 20% success rate on topple. my question is if that sounds right.'
Rufus says, 'oh topple'
Jade says, 'topple. :p'
Rufus rad tumble.
Quimby ponders Rufus's existence.
Jade says, 'and 30%, ot 20.'

Krista raises her hand.
Quimby polishes his glasses.
Jade says to Rufus, 'That's what i thought. and don't tell me there's a spirit mod, cause i got 60 of that. :)'
Rufus says, 'I doubt there is.'

Jade says, 'i kinda figured there was a str midifier after i tried it a bunch.'
Krista nods solemnly.

Rufus says, 'last time I talked to bash, he was in intensive care but stablized.'
Krista says, 'lol'
Rufus says, 'is this against mobs or players?'
Krista says, 'the bash skill'
Krista says, 'mobs'
Krista says, 'I haven't pked in a while so not sure of that side of it'
Rufus says, 'well, you're at 80 str atm, most mobs you're likely fighting have 100's, so you're already at a slight disadvantage. but the code hasn't changed in a really long time for bash success.'
Jasamai says, 'i connect less against players... but my mobs connects with bash seem alright'
Krista says, 'no I am talking about with str on me'
Krista says, 'I dno't bash without it'
Krista says, 'so 90 str'
Krista says, 'No, it might be fine it might be just me'
Rufus says, 'even then 90 vs 100 is still a pretty significant gap for the success of that skill.'
Krista scuffles her feet around in the dirt.
Krista says, 'I just wondered'
Jade says, '100 bash is awesome. anything less is pretty, ok at best. imo.'
Jasamai nods her agreement with Jade.
Krista says, 'I just have noticed a change that was all'
Rufus says, 'at equal stats, it has about 56% chance or so of landing, maybe a wee bit higher.'

Jade says, 'which is why str cause kicks ass.'
Krista says, 'okay thanks'
Krista smiles happily.
Krista launches herself across the room and tackles Blackmojo to the ground!
Rufus says, 'the best thing to do is to tally all your bashes over the course of about 100-200, that'll give you a good picture of where it is.'
Krista says, 'okay thanks I wil ldo that'
Krista thanks Rufus heartily.
Jade starts writing on a small piece of paper.
Rufus says, 'I tend to notice streaks though, with my chars... not necessarily on bash, but backstab. I went 3 days without landing one, then para'd 5 in a row.'
Rufus says, 'heh, cool.'

Huma says, 'yeap'
Jade says, 'i know that one :)'
Jade says to Rufus, 'Gradually go back to 1.5 and leave it.'
Huma says to Rufus, 'Hrm good question people were mentioning that the uber XP has coincided with a player spike.'
Jade says, 'but yeah, too much.'
Huma says, 'and wondering if we were gonna do anything about it'
Rufus says, 'yeah, but I imagine it would tail off after people got bored.'
Huma nods his agreement with Rufus.
Huma says, 'yeah'
Huma says, 'I iamgine over time it would do more harm then good'
Krista says, 'how can anyone get bored with this sort of xp?'
Krista says, 'it isn't possible'
Huma says, 'when you have like 40 level 50's'
Rufus says, 'level a dozen chars to 50... done'
Huma nods his agreement with Rufus.

Krista smiles happily.
Huma nods his agreement with Krista.
Huma says, 'although it'd be interesting to keep it slightly increased'
Huma shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'we'd have to throw that particular ball around before anything'
Rufus says, 'I've had a number of ideas... none of which I've discussed with anyone yet...'
Huma says, 'ohhhh'
Rufus says, 'maybe make things like a reward of some form that you can get the increased xp for say 3 hours or so togglable (instead of coupons or something for winning a flag hunt)'
Krista giggles.
Krista nods her agreement with Rufus.
Huma says, 'that's nifty'
Rufus says, 'having 'increased xp mondays'. or being able to dictate your stats, or go with random stats on char creation with a 10 hour xp bonus or something'
Krista says, 'wow that all sounds fantastic'
Krista smiles happily.
Jasamai nods her agreement with Krista.
Rufus says, 'absolutely none of that is even on the blocks yet, just some ideas I've had.'
