    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    Trouble is, unless given meta knowledge by those who were there, nobody else can join in the AL because the AL still hasn't caught up to the actual reality of the game. The Red Service is months since over yet the AL is still stuck covering the middle of it: It has indeed been dragging on for too long. It would be understandable if the organizers were still waiting for MRF to return, since he was one of us "summoners" and he did have a task of finding some mp3's to spar with in Necrovion in front of the Little Old Man. MRF worked separately and his efforts at the time were overshadowed by all the hype about the Eclipse. However, even if MRF returned now, it would be a separate arc, especially with the Little Old Man changed to what it is now. As such, how many months should it take for the AL to at least finish the Red Service arc when there's already a log of it posted up on the forums? How many remember the green text message right after the ceremony pointing at the dark clouds gathering above Necrovion? Did anything even happen there then or was it just a false foreshadow? As for the altars being blocked... It's a terrible choice either way. If they are meant to be restored by the players, then the clues given for that are too scarce for RP right now. If it is a story element, then it has outstayed its welcome in an arc that should already be finished. If it is just meant to cause an uproar later to get some fire going when the action dies down... well, congrats, it kind of did that but at what cost.

    Just to point out a slight discrepancy there. I slightly agree with NoOne here. If I may point out the obvious here and without meaning to be rude or disrespectful to anyone, I think the issue with this instalment of the AL is that it seems to be targetted specifically at a handful of people (I'd say 2-3) and while it affects the entire community it doesn't involve the entire community, or the involvement is superfluous at best. It feels like it's just to keep appearances up. I was there at the Red Service and perhaps I should have voiced my dissatisfaction at the time. I don't know how the others present felt, but to me it felt like it wouldn't have made any difference whether there were 2 or 20 people there, as the entire event was addressed entirely to Aia. It made the community involvement feel like an afterthought rather than a driver for the ritual. To whom it may concern, please consider I am not pointing fingers, I am trying to highlight what I find to be an issue with the AL at the moment.

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    Although I'm not the mind behind the latest AL chapter, I'm one of the pawns on its chessboard and perhaps the last person who spoke with the Old Man. I won't comment on the complaint and the requests. I feel the current situation should be addressed in game, therefore this thread might be a good chance to be all on the same page. The log below was taken in Necrovion, during the total eclipse and right after the Red Service. Please note it was at that time the Old Man changed its form (name, mind power and land affiliation). : The Red Service will be held 20:00 at Gazebo of Gravitational Sound Interior, A jumplink is available now : The sky across MD darkens slightly : The sky over MD lightens again, however the deepest of storm clouds are forming over Necrovion. (note: The Old Man, who had left his circle inside Necrovion, is now back and shows the first changes) lashtal: Changes in Mind Power and land affiliation... How interesting... lashtal: Is that because of the eclipse? : .Little Old Man. looks partially transparent .Little Old Man.: THEY KILLED HIM .Little Old Man.: IT IS JUST US NOW .Little Old Man.: SHOUTS: Our human counterpart is dead! lashtal: Isn't it what you were looking for? .Little Old Man.: THEY WILL PAY lashtal: I'm confused... How did you exit your circle and joined them? lashtal: I thought you were safe in Necrovion .Shadowy Old Man.: THEY CALLED US .Shadowy Old Man.: BLOOD WAS LET .Shadowy Old Man.: WE WERE TRICKED .Shadowy Old Man.: TALK TO MRF .Shadowy Old Man.: WE MUST SPEAK TO HIM What happened outside Necrovion is known to most of you: MRF found what he was asked to but then he seems to be vanished. Facts that might or might not be related to all this: MRF is not the only one who disappeared from sight, the Children of the Eclipse alliance (who got restored after the Red Service) got disbanded and its leader murdered. p.s. Mods feel free to move this post if you think it's too far from the thread's original purpose.

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    I enjoyed the AL and was really interested to see where it was going, especially when the altars stopped working. What I don't enjoy is it being dragged out with no activity for so long. Thanks to your little 'jolly' what has happened to things like TTC? What happens to the couple new players trying to train who hit the heat cap but don't have the VE to drop in a reasonable time? Forget them, they and everyone else are just ignorant and can't see the *cough* solid foundation. No, No One, I mean the people messing in Necro should keep him company

    I see your point, the only thing that really annoys me about this altar blockade is that nothing happens anymore so it looks like the altars wont come back anytime soon

    The Wrath of the Shades: Implications

    I'm moving this discussion here as a complaint thread is no place for it. What fascinates me about the words of the Shades is when they say that the Old Man is their human counterpart. Last I checked, humans only had one Shade: their own. The Shades said that "they" will pay. That involves a large part of the community. I would call this community involvement, especially since the Shades are coming for us all. What defences do you have in place to protect yourselves? Or will you grovel before the Shades, begging for forgiveness. I suggest you make your preparations before an army of the dead is raised to collect the most precious of payments: life. That would be the kindest vengeance from a Necromancer. The worst would be collecting your soul. Look to Loreroot. There is strong magic there. I think we can make many great adventures out of this. Edit: I was not done the post and it posted...

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    Consider this as a formal complaint against the AL "One Man, Many voices" organizers. True, AL should be possible and should impact the game play of others. So, considering that: altars are one of the top most important parts of MD directly blocking character improvements by getting/exchanging current creatures and by blocking the stats from the currently available creatures there has been no progress on this for a too long time in this AL 3 months already since last post the altars have been stopped for no reason - as there is no info in AL yet as for the altars to be blocked . in the AL timeline you could have added an action which would have blocked them, but this is not the case (as I see) I request : a symbolic punishment for the AL driver - regardless on which of the following actions will be taken restoration of the altars (until their blockage is really needed) and/or action on AL : stopping the AL and thus restoring the status of MD OR somebody else to take over the AL so that it would bring it to its end

    This is for the passionate and skilled people out there... a new level of MD I am just a man, and chew is also no batman either, we are trying to foster the existence of this wonderful community, to keep its values and hopefully to attract more interesting people. As you know, this is a dictatorship, without dictators, a social sandbox, a trial towards self discovery, a place where crazy means good, where skills are your invisible rank, a place where nothing is fair but just makes things spicier and challenging in a strange way. Each one sees what he is searching in MD, a mirror of himself that he eventually has to face, there is no predictable thing you could see in that mirror, because above the beautiful places and semi-boring activities , there are the other living players that build the actual MD. Mirrors are forbidden by law in MD, because this is a clue enough for the other mysteries to fall in place...plus it could really be dangerous to have a real, objective mirror, in a place created through the subjectivity of all the other mirrors..sorry i mean players. Balance is there if you search it, it keeps things alive in here, but evolution feeds on unbalance, not on balance, your minds feed on challenges not on safe monotony. Its time for me to risk some more and to try to resuscitate this machinery..but i cant do it alone. Magicduel is a learning machine if you know how to use it. This machine needs moving parts and fuel to run. You do realise you are the fuel, without its players MD would be an dead piece of messy code. Right now I prepared all the gears and pieces, but its just too much for just a couple of people to do. We need help to put them together, and put them in motion and fuel them to keep them running. This is where you come in ...well some at least hopefully.. The "A25 Tools" are ready, functional, and already in test use for a long while. Azull did a great job on the island, Sushi made some insanely beautiful artworks, others tried their skill and did quite decent too... i have huge hopes for this. I dream to bring a next level of interactivity, through a natural level of evolution of the "veteran" player....that level is to be part of md evolution, not just to be entertained by others, but to build your own gears inside this beautiful machine. The tools i made allow to build nearly every aspect of the md world if needed, with no coding involved, just creativity and logic..and lots and lots of passion. ...but right now they are in risk of rusting if i don't find more special people that have the ability to use them right. It requires a certain type of person to expand md, a type of such rarity that i am happy if i find at least one, but i prepared the tools to be used for all if it would ever be the case. We have many skilled quest creators, and from time to time we find an amazing artist too..these characters are not permanent if i do not offer them a chance to express themselves better. For me, the way i enjoyed md was to build it, and at some point Chew followed me and on the same path. Now with these tools you don;t need coding skills, and with volunteer artists you don;t even need drawing skills, still need A LOT but at least now there is a chance for any passionate and smart person in here to develop md and see how it looks from behind the curtain. We are a disaster in terms of leadership and organizig ...i admit thats mainly my fault, or was at least. Without other ways to manage this, i will count just on the individuality of those that might get acces to these tools, to make md a self balancing oranism, with no central brain that will govern it. I saw that some of you understood the underlyng concepts and symbols of this realm, and managed to respect them. Some of them even had god powers at some point, but they had no real tools to express themselves and infuence others. I will try again to discover such people, this time prepared to keep them and offer them real tools to make their share of the realm as they think fit. If you kept reading till here, you have the patience neede for this, and you migh feel same hope i feel about this unique opportunity to CREATE something amazing, so i ask for your help. I made a long (but far from exhausitve) documentation of what the tools can do. If you are interested, read it, and help me organize it better. Help me build the first step needed for whoever will use it, to access it in a useful way (might be you who knows). If you know a fossil that made legend long ago, invite them to do the same...to read this article like you did and try to put the gears i made in motion. I will continue to develop md, thats what i do, thats my role in here, not to lead, not be a dictator, and not even to create. I create md, thats enough for my role, ..but you, you create the rest. Chew, this is an invitation for you too, you are the code master, true, but you reached there not by being hired to do it, or because you are an amazing coder, but because you understand how md works. I don't want to name all the people i see able to join in this, but i wish i see them actually do it. There is a place there for many of you, you just have to realize it and actually do it, yourselves. Start with the low work, prepare the docs, understand them, then the second step is to help someone that already uses them to use them better, or prove you understand them well, and that you can keep md style while you do. The next natural step, is to try them out, and them ..if and only if you gain my trust and keep the tools long enough in such way that nobody complains on how you use them and you create with them, they will become yours and part of your role. good luck. Thank you for reading all this. Please leave me a note here if you read all of it, i am curious who actually managed it and who the potential candidates might be -- Mur

    @Sushi you proved to be a great artist, its good to know that we can count on your support for futures things. @Eagle Eye ok @Fire Starter thanks for being honest about it @DARK DEMON any bit of experience with these tools is more than welcome, so, sure everybody interested in participating should have access to the docs. After the docs step, some of you will move on with testing, some with implementing things they like, but some will remain as quest make 'consultant' without tools access. If i give everyone full access to everything is a certainty that things will become chaotic. We will think of a way how to do this better, maybe you take turns, i don't know yet. What i know is that from all the people offering to get involved with this, just a couple will use these tools right. For example, i have nothing to complain about how Azull uses them in the (secret) project he is doing now..and combined with his long time reputation i think i can trust him with permanent access. Others on the list however, need to prove they grew up first, before i will stop checking their every move. DD you know very well how things turned out for you due to incredibly stupid yet simple mistakes...but i will alwyas support passion and motivation. I will probably work on a sandbox somehow , a training ground for these tools to limit damage while you learn what to do with them, but till then, only docs. I will start sending access to the Questmakers Backpack forum section to all interested, but remember i want activity in return. Just requesting access to look arround and not participating in organizing and better structuring of those docs and examples, will get you kicked out from this

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    @Aia del Mana all of these are amazing points... so much so that i dont even know where to start... so ill start here i guess. Taking all that into account, and seeing from a rather wide perspective just how frail the balance and imbalance are... it makes me wonder what would happen if one were to kill TTL ( https://magicduel.com/players/TTL ) or the Controlled Shade | Ark Mattarox ( https://magicduel.com/players/| Ark Mattarox ). Both seem to be very important in the grand scheme of things, and both would greatly disrupt balance if they went from being in Necrovion to The Dead... interesting indeed. For that matter, what would happen if killing them spurred the Shade Sentinel ( https://magicduel.com/players/Shade Sentinel ), and beyond that what would happen if we were to try and kill the Shade Sentinel himself?... would we destroy the balance and imbalance weve all come to take for granted, or would the disruptive assassin become like TTL, a soul now lost to Necrovion?... @Ungod I do believe Aia is on to something beyond important... if the Shades balance the Empty Aramor (Souls without Vessels and Vessels without Souls) then what would happen if we didnt simply defeat them in battle and make them dissapear visually? What would happen if we tried to actually kill them?... woud we drastically see change in either Necrovion, Golemus, Gateway, The Dead, or all four? Would nothing change? Would new previously locked doors open, or would previously open doors close? If something happens, nothing happens, or everything gets turned upside down, careful study of the actions and reactions or lack thereof would greatly aid in the research being conducted on it all. @Blackshade Rider Very possible indeed. We could accidentally spark another war... but if we did, what would that truly mean? Answers might be found, but even more questions would arise... Edit1: A careful study of TTLs, Arks, and the Shade Sentinels principles should also be taken into consideration. They might just hold as many secrets and answers as the rest of this. Edit2: Careful study of these profiles makes me notice a few things immediately. The Sentinel is made up of simply Darkness. Described simply as "Nightmare's for Some, Fascination for Others, Shades Rule the Obscure Side of This World, Balancing for All that is Opposing Them". He is also quoted to be saying "Listen to Me i Challenge You All. Find my Face Behind the Wall. As You Rise so You should Fall". TTL is made up of Darkness, Imagination, Time, Transposition, and Light oddly enough. TTL is "A Soul bound to the Shades Realm, Crossing Over on a Perpetual Basis". No further papers on this once sentient being to describe him, although it should be noted that he did try to kill the Shades if memory serves. Ark is made up of Balance & Imagination. It is an "Undefined entity commonly reffered to as a Shade. Usually being a Fragment of a Larger Cluster ([Sub?]Consciousness of Necrovion?) and without Individual Identity". Ark also speaks of himself. This is seen in the passage reading thusly: "Originated in Necrovion, I Ark Mattorox is Different from your Average Shade (It seems very self aware, even of its abnormality in being self aware). It is Sometimes seen Outside of Necrovion, Sometimes heard talking to Itself (Itself as in himself, or itself as in the rest of the Combined Consciousness?) and has an Unusual Interest in Humans (I believe this means sentient organisms, as we all know not all of us in MagicDuel are "human"). It seems to like Writing and Reading, preferably starting Midway in a Book and working towards the Beginning and the End Simultaneously (This makes sense since Shades experience all of time all at once). Sometimes ruins a book in attempt to Bend it Backwards (This... feels like it has some secret message im overlooking), however the books it returns to the Library are always in a Good State (So it keeps anything it ruins... interesting). The only Problem is it tends to Return books Before it Borrowed them and thus confuse the Librarian (Ah, so their experience of time is different from ours on all levels both Inner and Outer, we could even say Shades can travel through what we consider to be Time). As for the Writings, it has a huge Collection of Papers containing the word "I" or "I Ark Mattarox"; A Thesis on the Concept of Individuality and a Transcript of 'The Book of Time", which he Wrote while visiting the Study Room (Again, this Shade is beyond self aware)".

    Golemus Golemicarum & Necrovion

    I simply meant the Shades have not been removed from anything to the extent of our knowledge, even if it is possible to find a Shade that resembles you in your entirety. I dont believe those two halves were ever a whole, for what would we become if we fully accepted and absorbed our Shade? Would we be ourselves with a Shade voice in our head, or would we be the voice in the mind of a Shade? Maybe wed be something completely new and amazing, but i feel like we arent together as one with our Shade for a reason. Might simply be for Balances sake, then again it might be something far greater and vastly more destructive to the very fabric of existence. Empty Aramors on the other hand, were not Empty once. Thus, now, they are not whole. I apologize if that got confusing, that was not my intention. Yes indeed, the Empty Aramors we know now became empty upon leaving Gateway. I dont believe im at liberty to explain how that came to be exactly, but i do believe i can say that much. I have personally never seen a Shade in Gateway, but there is still an underground cavern area i do not believe has been fully explored so, its wholly possible we could find some startling things down there in the deep dark depths of Gateway. As for how Tiny Men tie into Aramors at all, i have no idea. Their only connection i can see is that they seem to have come from the same place of origin, and they seem to be able to live together without destroying each other.

    Shape of the map

    the cyclical order of the lands with relation to time is gg -> nc -> mb -> lr -> WESTLANDS  -> gg     @dd none is first or last, each has one before and after it     there's a direct passage between NC and MDA, i just haven't found it yet look at the position of the gates in their various stages of development. the reason we only see one gate in gg and lr is because we don't know what to look for in the west's gates

    I estimated which face the WesLand would be located on based on its relative position to GG with regards to the other lands. The Yellow lines indicating that the Maze connects to WestLand is purely conjecture in my part. I'm predicting that the Shadow Labyrinth will have an exit leading to the west.

    I have experience with A25 (second Labyrinth), even though that was years ago. Would love to get involved again. The stuff I am more interested is expanding the MD realm itself rather than modifying existing scenes.
