    Chimeras

    Hi. I guess we all know about the chimera, the 'fire-breathing female monster resembling a lion in the fore part, a goat in the middle, and a dragon behind (Iliad, vi. 179), with three heads corresponding.' What puzzled me is how it came to be. There's no way I can come up with this stuff without having some idea behind it, right? Symbols are like that. Doodles are just doodles. Now, one theory is that the origin of the myth was the volcanic nature of the soil of Lycia (Pliny, Nat. Hist. ii. 110; Servius on Aeneid, vi. 288), where works have been found containing representations of the Chimera in the simple form of a lion. (That's not good enough for me). Another one I read some days ago is that the chimera is a symbol for the sun or the symbol of the solar yearly cycle. How? Well, apparently, the lion and the serpent/dragon are marking the beginning and the end of summer, while the goat, the winter solstice. Here's a picture (not mine): So, what's the deal? I offer you a challenge - to look for as many mythological creatures as you can (from all cultures) and find (on the internet, or your own research, if capable) 'common' events in nature that can explain their creation. Should be fun to do - that's something I also pursue, but very slowly. Anyone can do it, time offered is two weeks (so the weekend after the next one is the limit) and the rewards are for the one who gets the most creatures 'deciphered'. The better way is to keep writing in a .txt file which you will upload at the end of THE time, to avoid copycats. The explanation shouldn't be exhaustive, and it should be something that to you, at least, rings true. As for the rewards, one WP for the winner plus some creature (not a 'normal' one), that I haven't decided on yet. I must also decide if I want to reward second place (sponsorship is welcomed, btw). But the quest itself might lead you to some very interesting finds, which are reward enough, no? NO? Ok, I will provide...

    Sacrifices at fenth's press

    The traveller (you) was on his/her way to the Gazebo when he approached the fenth's press. There, an unknown player was sacrificing creatures. Unlike other times, you managed to see clearly how the creatures were devoided of their shapes and turned into fenths...but it all happened very fast. In a few seconds, nine creatures were sacrificed and the player dissapeared, with no trace whatsoever. You strain to recall what creatures were sacrificed... Rules: you have until thursday (00:00) to send me by forum pm the name of the nine creatures (level and name doesn't matter, type suffices), fastest answers occupy the three places. Rewards: 1g3sc for first place, 1 tele to PC stone for second and 6sc+1 mirrorit stone for third (hope i won't have to edit the post, happy guessing)

    Chimeras

    If there are no submissions by tomorrow, I will prolong the quest by one week...It is rather difficult research, but it would be interesting to see what people find out.

    creature attacks with "Target" he does not have anymore

    In other words: my Chaos Archer (661437) is a real Chaos Archer which was in this ritual since lower levels thus "random" for target. After updating the Archer to Chaos this "random" was replaced by "All". So, my Chaos Archer ... is ... remembering some skills ... meaning that the current battle system is not validating current skills & targets of the creatures vs skills & targets of the ritual. The ritual is quite old so ... I don't know when this change occured.

    I've just noticed that the icons in the left bar don't light up anymore. Tested with fight log, ally chat and PM, none of them send a notification (turn yellow or ping).

    Quest rework - Requirements to join a quest

    Has current VE / VP - that allows you to make quests where people can actually help or hinder one another through combat features Has achievement - specifically thinking about research depth here, but i could think of newbie quests to require burst burner or high end quests to require full glow Has ally / specific ally - what ivorak said, but with allies. You could create nice little gang wars, for example

    Quest rework - Requirements to join a quest

    Has certain age - a new player might not be able to perform the same way as a veteran Has X as friend - should be an interesting addon - there have been quests where you were encouraged to find and talk to some players. This feature might be proof of at least "searching" of the search Has Creature or X amount of Creatures - for example you could have a quest where the number of crits of a certain species can give you a class: you have 5 dragons -> dragonslayer/dragonbreeder etc; you have 10 barren souls -> healer; you have 10 Imps -> Paladin etc etc

    Quest rework - Requirements to join a quest

    Has item - for multi stage quests, distributed to those who pass preceding quest Has tag - certain quests could be designed for those with special tags (particularly the ones from tag dispensers), a building quest with enrollment limited to carpenters for example. On list - ability to "whitelist"/"blacklist" players from a quest, the latter is particularly useful when a player has cheated at a previous quest, or failed at a quest where failure has repercussions. Citizen of - would encourage land leaders to create quests for their people/vassals.

    Quest rework - Requirements to join a quest

    For that list of quest types perhaps add research related quests. Among other things possible specific requirements for that could be; Having unlocked specific clues. Having unlocked a certain total number of clues / clues per category. Having submitted a new clue and having it implemented. (advanced)

    The flying barrel

    Let's announce the winners, shall we? Now, I personally like dst's submissions, but I think Zleipheneir's are more in tune with how I see Slotsh - an somewhat crazy inventor. For this reason, I will award the WP to Z and so the Nutcracker will go to dst. I've learned a lesson here - to not be a judge in such difficult quests. It's soo much easier to say 'well, the judges decided, sorry' and go about your day...I await appeals (if any). Thank you for participating, I hope you enjoyed it.

    WTS Creatures

    Or he decided not to sell. He did say if the price is right he would sell them. Maybe the price was not right so he decided not to sell maybe. He does hold the right to do so if he did. No deal was made it appears.
