Huma says, 'and the ones for Somme'
Huma says, 'anyway'
Huma says, 'feel free to raise your hand for question answering goodness'

Orchid says, 'alright. i'll say it's from you though'
Orchid nods to herself.
Huma chuckles politely.
Xuvenia says, 'with no swear words right?>'
Xuvenia looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma says, 'tell him I told you to do it'
Huma says, 'no swears please'
Xuvenia says, 'he loves the abuse tho :('
Huma says, 'Somar needs a smack in the game-playing ass anyway'
Huma giggles.

Huma says, 'ok Magellynn please ask'
Magellynn says, 'is the qest journal thing implemented'
Huma says, 'it is'
Magellynn says, 'quest even'
Huma says, 'its not heavily used right now'
Huma says, 'theres a quest in india that uses it'
Magellynn says, 'how do I learn to use it?'
Xuvenia says, 'isn't it true that only one quest utilizes it?'
Ras says, 'is that the only one?'
Huma says, 'might be =P'
Xuvenia grins evilly.
Huma says, 'for whatever reason'
Magellynn nods solemnly.
Ras grumbles.
Magellynn says, 'thanks'
Orchid says, 'only ever seen it in india'
Xuvenia says, 'bad rufus, silly code'
Huma says, 'Nestor and LA/Sandra didnt use it in the recent areas'
Ras nods his agreement with Orchid.
Huma says, 'well Ruf imp'd it but didnt require it' 
Huma says, 'so' 
Huma says, 'if people dont use it'
Huma says, 'I mean...'
Huma says, 'what can ya do?'
Xuvenia giggles.
Magellynn shrugs helplessly.
Xuvenia says, 'get rid of it'
Xuvenia says, 'cuz it confuses people' 
Huma would use it.
Orchid says, 'I have another Q and I'm not getting naked though'
Huma says, 'why does it confuzzle people'
Ras says, 'I would use it, it's a good idea'
Xuvenia says, 'because only one quest uses it :P'
Huma has created a coat and hat rack!
Magellynn says, 'i like it too'
Huma peers intently at a coat and hat rack.
Huma picks up a coat and hat rack.
Huma eats a coat and hat rack.
Magellynn says, 'would be helpful for me'
Huma says, 'anywho'
Xuvenia says, 'i think the point is it's overly helpful'
Huma says, 'yeah, people just dont use it builders that is'
Magellynn nods in agreement.
Huma says, 'could ask for more clues etc. etc. while you do quests'
Ras says, 'you can't judge that, mind, because it's still just the one quest'
Huma says, 'they do stuff like that'
Ras says, 'allegedly one quest' 
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'ok Orchid what was your other Q'
Orchid says, 'tools for skills.... most require that you know the skill anyway. I've tested somewhat and I don't see how they complement the existing skill really. Is it a myth that they boost the existing skill?'
Huma says, 'Deal... or no deal Orchid?'
Magellynn chuckles politely. 
Huma looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma says, 'wellllll'
Huma says, 'I think they allow you to use the skills'
Xuvenia says, 'you know, being able to see that kind of hint in appraise would make that an infinitely useful skill :P'
Huma says, 'and I assume some assist skills others dont'
Huma says, 'idea it!'
Huma says, 'thats a great idea'
Ras says, 'in all caps!'
Xuvenia says, 'you guys are sick of hearing me!'
Huma says, 'never!'
Xuvenia says, 'there'
Huma says, 'there'
Huma says, 'Xuve Idea'd it'
Xuvenia says, 'and it's just mildly sarcastic, no swearing'
Huma says, 'hopefully someone will do it'
Xuvenia says, 'probably rufus :P'
Xuvenia says, 'i swear I'm his muse now'
Huma says, 'nah... LA'
Huma says, 'I could see LA doing this'
Huma says, 'shes all about the skill tools'
Xuvenia giggles.
Xuvenia says, 'oh cool then'
Huma says, 'aww'
Huma says, 'theres a dad with a curte littel 4 year old girl'
Xuvenia says, 'you guys should try cutting back on bloat soon :P'
Huma says, 'bloat?'
Huma says, 'whats a bloat?'
Huma says, 'raise your hands for questions!'
Xuvenia says, 'you know, get rid of the bits of code that you guys created but never really took anywhere'
Xuvenia says, 'like the quest journal.'
Xuvenia says, 'skill tools'
Huma says, 'we want to cut out crappy old quests'
Huma says, 'supposedly some people use skill tools'
Xuvenia says, 'i mean, if it's not working, yank it and focus on stuff that does work'
Xuvenia giggles.
Ras says, 'not if they have whoises!'
Xuvenia says, 'i dunno'
Xuvenia giggles.
Huma says, 'crappy old skills must go too'
Huma says, 'or be altered'
Xuvenia says, 'yea'
Huma says, 'I think the whole whois thing is out of control'
Huma says, 'they're absolutly useless =P'
Xuvenia says, 'seriously!'
Huma says, 'they're just spam'
Ras says, 'eloquence has been sort of useless for a while'
Xuvenia says, 'well if you wanna know what quests you haven't done it's great'
Huma says, 'some type of nerd penis-size contest'
Ras says, '"sort of" meaning completely'
Huma says, 'how is it useful for that Xuv'
Ras says, 'my penis is 96 lines long'
Ras sharpens his nails against his shirt in self-congratulations.
Huma says, 'you gonna find the 1 question in the 200 pages of spam?'
Magellynn says, 'it's sort of a quest journal itself'
Xuvenia says, 'if you don't have the whois you go do the quest :P'
Huma says, 'would take me 20 minutes to assure myself I dont have the whoise'
Xuvenia says to Huma, 'Oh i'd love a config whois to hide generic whoises.'
Xuvenia says, 'but special ones should still display'
Xuvenia says, 'like the million xp, the castle made from candy, that sort of thing'
Orchid says, 'yeah but how do you define generic? use db?'
Orchid ducks to the ground.
Xuvenia slaps Orchid.
Ras hushes Orchid. 
Huma nods his agreement with Xuvenia.
Xuvenia says, 'let me finish :P'
Huma says, 'I'd love that too'
Huma says, 'but the code might be tough or it might not'
Xuvenia says, 'well all the ooc whoises are in a separate file'
Huma says, 'so things like PK tourney wins, expies, trivia stuff'
Xuvenia says, 'just insert a toggle for it'
Huma shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'hey'
Xuvenia giggles.
Huma says, 'I'd do it tomorrow =P'
Huma says, 'I don't run this place though'
Huma mopes around, depressed. 
Xuvenia giggles at Huma.
Xuvenia says, 'i have too many ideas :P'
Huma says, 'no its an idea I've had before'
Xuvenia says, 'oh cool'
Magellynn bows deeply.
Huma flops about helplessly.
Huma says, 'so how're you guys doin?'
Salvatore shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'I have to tape lost today because my father needs help hiding his corvette =P'
Salvatore says to Huma, 'think i solved the pk grudges.. well hopefully.'
Huma snarls angrily.
Huma claps for Salvatore approvingly.
Xuvenia says to Huma, 'Hiding?'
Xuvenia peers around intently.
Huma says, 'putting in the garage'
Xuvenia says, 'oh'
Huma says, 'he's let it out in the snow all winter'
Salvatore cringes in terror.
Ras says, 'but why?'
Huma says, 'so now that its summer the corvette must go in the garage'
Huma says, 'hey its F'd'
Huma says, 'no idea'
Huma says, 'my father is the height of laze'
Xuvenia says, 'um probably so it doesn't get hot'
Huma says, 'I think I'm lazy'
Xuvenia peers around intently.
Huma says, 'but him... man'
Huma says, 'he should have hid it from the snow though'
Xuvenia says, 'yeah, that will wreck your car'
Xuvenia looks up into the sky and ponders.
Huma nods his agreement with Xuvenia.
Huma shrugs helplessly.
Huma says, 'not my car'
Huma says, 'how're you doin Orchid?'
Xuvenia says, 'hmm i need to cook'
Xuvenia says, 'afk'
Huma waves to Xuvenia.
Huma says, 'how about you Rio, you doin OK?'
Orchid says, 'wondering why we have Q&A regularly. My first one ever, I think'
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'people used to have a lot of questions'
Orchid says, 'we'd be better off playing werewolf or something'
Huma says, 'nowadays not so much'
Orchid says, 'maybe forum changed that'
Huma says, 'I think so'
Huma says, 'plus the imms are so available in general'
Ras says, 'it's disgraceful!'
Huma says, 'so many avenues to get to the imms'
Ras mutters under his breath.
Orchid says, 'well, I suppose I could just read your future to you all instead'
Huma laughs.
Orchid says, 'or not'
Orchid says, '...'
Huma says, 'I might go ahead and end this in a couple minutes'
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'my future is hidden from all!'
Ras says, 'no, I see a corvette in your future'
Ras looks up into the sky and ponders.
Orchid says, 'bah, I already read yours indirectly'
Ras says, 'sitting in a garage'
Huma says, 'yeah seriously =P'
Orchid points at Huma.
Orchid says, 'to a certain lady who was asking'
Orchid nods to herself.
Huma giggles.
Orchid says to Huma, 'won't tell you what lady, but it looked good.'
Huma chuckles politely.
Huma says, 'thats good to hear'
Orchid grins evilly.
Orchid says, 'ok, well thanks for the Q&A!'
Orchid smiles at Ras.
Orchid smiles at Huma.
Orchid waves happily.
Ras says, 'oh wait!'
Ras raises his hand. 
Ras peers around intently.
Huma says, 'whatsup Ras'
Ras says, 'any new era skill ideas coming out?'
Huma shakes his head.
Huma says, 'not right now'
Ras says, 'specifically, surgeon oriented stuff?'
Huma says, 'some thoughts about doing something'
Ras says, 'I was thinking like an "every 20-minutes you can heal someone fully for 50 Ma" or some such jazz'
Huma says, 'I havent heard anything specific'
Ras nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'well I think something will come out'
Huma says, 'like more efficient heals or something like that'
Huma says, 'havent heard anything specific though :('
Ras says, 'non-failing calms would be nice'
Huma says, 'idea it!'
Ras nods solemnly.
Yossarian raises his hand.
Huma says, 'make it cost 100 mana or something'
Huma pokes Yossarian in the ribs.
Huma says, 'go ahead' 
Yossarian says, 'Era abilitiy standing regen:'
Yossarian says, 'if we have iron will too, will iron will kick in while standing?'
Huma says, 'I dont believe so no'
Yossarian faints.
Yossarian says, 'bah, then what's the point :P'
Huma says, 'I dunno'
Huma says, 'it might!' 
Yossarian begins clawing at his back trying to itch a spot he can't quite reach.
Yossarian says, 'that really sucks'
Huma nods his agreement with Yossarian.
Huma says, 'sorry'
Huma says, 'well I have never tested it honestly'
Yossarian spits on the ground.
Huma says, 'so I'm not sure either way'
Yossarian thanks Huma heartily.
Yossarian says, 'wait'
Yossarian says, 'you are saying you are not sure?'
Huma says, 'I sure am'
Huma says, 'I have no idea =P'
Yossarian says, 'haha ok'
Yossarian thanks Huma heartily.
Yossarian waves happily.
Ras nods solemnly.
Ras says, 'thanks for the Q&A'

Huma says, 'Q&A over!'
