    Back in Year 4, the seeds sprouted into the East gate. Roughly four months later, Elthen Airis, one of the first inhabitants of the Tribunal lands, had settled in the Sunny Bedroom to start working on his private detective cases. Back then, one could only walk up to the Temple, with the rest of the locations being revealed later on the occasion of the 6th Birthday. This lack of other similar scenes at that point might help us understand why he picked that exact place instead of some other room. Elthen Airis, Private Detective Shortly thereafter, in the beginning of Year 5, The Sunny Bedroom was made private as a reaction to a sequence of controversial events, and Elthen was assigned to become its first key holder. Interestingly, the Sunny Bedroom key was the first usable inventory item in the realm. Elthen’s role did not last long, though, for the other realm summoned him and his absence called for a new keeper. People suggested potential candidates and those names were put to a vote. After a very close election, Miq was chosen to become the next key holder or Concierge, a title/tag that he would help popularize throughout his almost 5 years of service. As a reward for his hard work, he has earned the send to checkers hall spell. Miq the Concierge After a long period of performing his duties as Concierge while also working on other roles, Miq decided to step down and set up another election for the next keeper. This time, MRF was voted to receive the official items and spell. It is worth noting that, during the election, an update made it so that earfocus and acousticremains would no longer work inside the Sunny Bedroom. MRF At some point, MRF decided to focus on other activities and handed the role to Syrian, the current key holder. As a realm-shaper, she’s been in charge of making interesting upgrades to the Sunny Bedroom. In addition, the Sunny Bedroom has recently been the first scene to have its privacy enhanced by the new Protected Chat setting. Syrian This brings us to the present. The Sunny Bedroom has been the first “unique feature” of the Tribunal and it certainly plays an important role in the history of the East. One cannot help but wonder what kind of secrets have been shared in this mysterious room during all these years.

    A rite of passage

    2 December 2019, Samon passed on. Samon has always been a reflection of myself, he was myself. However as time went on the part of me he reflects became weaker and weaker. Samon has been death within the realm of MD for several years and with good reason. I won't go into details as to how and why, but over the last week things happened that made me realize Samon is no more. This passage is not a sad occurrence, I'd even say it's a rather happy one. Even if I haven't been very active, MD has been a major part of my life. Therefore I feel like I can't move on without tying things up here. I might be on Samon a few more times during the coming weeks, but as nothing more than a shadow of the past. After that I'll probably leave MD for some time, but I do plan on returning at some point in a new shape. To all who knew me, fare well, and I hope we'll meet again in the next life. Now excuse me, I have to go to a meeting with Marind.

    Equilibrium tourney IV

    The tournament has finished, be prepared to greet your new champion! but let us begin with the beginning, the fight for bronze: Ledah vs No one No one was so impressed with Ledah's path through the tournament he kindly bowed out to maintian his honor. (Or the other world kept him from completing his fight is in a reasonable timeframe). Leaving the MD truest fossil as bronze medalist, proving that age is just a number! And now, the main event, the legendary fight between a (former) king and a god! Jubaris vs Chewett! this much anticipated battle more than delivered, these two oldtimers exchanged jabs without a second thought. when the bell ran and the fight was over only one was left standing... the one and only... well done, well done. and as his armor showed not an easy win. a 3-1 result however giving a clear image that his victory was hardfought. of course our losing finalist deserves praisings too, a tournament regular that always ends up in the top is certainly a sign of skill. from the discussion during and after the brawl we have gathered some interesting information, here are some reactions from our finalists: Jubaris has shown his skill in battle throughout many times over, this is a key example of his wisdom: as for our finalist, only a mastermind strategy could be used to earn this crown, this is what he had to say on the matter: Clear signs these gentlemen are at the top of the foodchain! And for now the most important part the rewards: 1) Chewett: the honor of carrying the title of Equilibrium Champion 1 WP 1 anniv creature Golden wreath 2) Jubaris: 4 gold coins 1 anniv creature 3) Ledah 2 gold coins 1 anniv creature This concludes this Equilibrium tournament. I would like to thank all contestans for making this tourney a truely challenging experience. I'd also like to thank the treasury for their generous donations towards our victors. I hope to see you all again next edition. And who knows you could be the next Champion!

    Travelling Investigator

    Travelling Investigator. Josephine, or Josie as she prefers, remembers very little about her existence before she woke up on the beach of the Gateway Island. She senses pain, a need for an end and then.. there she was. Tall in stature with a motherly appearance and calm, reassuring aspect, Josie is an unassuming middle-aged woman who seems to be guided by one simple word.. adventure. An avid researcher and writer, she plans on committing herself to the understanding of the geography of the realm and the exploration of all places existing and yet to be found. Explorer, adventurer, researcher.. this is the path she longs to follow. In her backpack she carries: Paper, Pencils, Compass, Sextant, Astrolabe, Nautical divider, Magnifying Glass, Telescope, Several Reference Books, Journal and Notebook. ---------------- My current expedition: Golemus Golemicarum I am conducting my own research of the geography and the significance of the land and will post my spoiler free journal of it on the forum when I am finished. I hope that as time goes by, my activities may initiate to some interesting research discussions and quests. One day at a time, though.. I have lots of work to do first!

That he will rule alongside his two Dukes to guide the lands together with the citizens. Sunfire spoke as a representative of the citizens of the east after which Chewett called for those who would support this venture. No players called out against this and the following players from the East supported it: Sunfire, Ledah, Mallos, Eara Meraia, Aelis, Ailith Jubaris spoke as a representative of the citizens of Marind Bell and gifted Chewett the rare "Bell of Marind", a long kept relic of Marind.

    Grand Duke of the East

    On Day 95, Year 15, at Sage's Keep, @Chewett was made Grand Duke of the Lands of the East and King of Marind Bell. This is the first time someone in the realm is elected to rule two lands at the same time. An official minute of the event is located at the following topic: Following the unprecedented ceremony, the Demon of the East has recognized Chewett's rulership over the Tribunal part of the Lands of the East as seen in Announcement 4963. This also marks the first time kingship tools are made available for the Lands of the East. Prior to this election, the East had seen a couple of (somewhat unsuccessful) claims to power from Granos to Eon and Shadowseeker, then Sunfire and finally Pipstickz. Chewett went a different route, though: he met directly with all interested parties and managed to gather their support. It was a very clever move in terms of strategy and timing. Interestingly enough, the concept of a Dukedom in the East was proposed before by Pipstickz, but his idea did not gain enough traction at the time. With all this happening only a few days prior to the very anticipated 15th Anniversary, it almost looks as if the birthday is already happening. I look forward to seeing (and documenting) the changes that this new dual rulership shall bring to our realm.

    Citizenship Accepted!!!

    Hello everyone! I am so incredibly excited to be considered part of Marind Bell! It is the land I by far spent the most time in before my slumber. Before land loyalty was a thing. I have always felt more at home at MBthan elsewhere. I love that MB is such an open land yet shows just the surface of all of its many secrets to any who enter. I believe that membership in MB means an obligation to seek knowledge and provide assistance to new players, after all, that is why our threshold has visible gates. I am truly excited to continue my story in MB, to continue my research and to learn more of this realm. Thabk you for having the faith and trust in me to vote for me! steno

    As I am told the Adventure Log doth lie at an indefinite hiatus, I did think to continue of its progress. I hope that mine narration, in the common-tongue, were enjoyable to read; if it were not so, I should like of constructive feedback. It doth continue where the Adventure Log has paused, upon page 572. __________________________________________ Memories in the Wind, Ch.1. _____ Samon wiped the sweat from his brow as he walked inside from the rain. It had been a while since he had been called upon for a burial. Such a violent death, he thought; the image of the priestess's lifeless body flashing before his eyes once more. Such was the job of a Caretaker; at least it was something to break up the repetition of dusting the gravestones, trimming the poppies, and tormenting the Tormented Souls. A tap on the door, then, muffled murmurs. Samon rose hastily, but the messenger was gone; in her place a woven wreath of white flowers, and a small envelope with a waxen seal. Samon examined the seal briefly before breaking it; this was unmistakenly the Lorerootian royal seal. How odd, thought Samon; Lintara certainly preferred to communicate with enchanted butterflies. Ah, of course, thought Samon, as he read the flowing script-hand. He gently lifted the wreath and stepped out to place it upon the freshly filled grave. _______ Lintara set out towards the Drywater Temple; her small entourage in tow, carrying all sorts of heat stones and erolin-spheres. A risk, perhaps; she briefly recalled the butterfly that had whispered advice from a far-away mentor. A risk worth taking. She directed her entourage to place the stones in the receptacle, and ignited them with the heat from the erolin-spheres, careful not to burn her fingers in the process. Before long, a roaring fire lit up the receptacle, and Lintara and her entourage stood and watched in solemn silence; broken only by the crackling flames, and then, by whispers... faint whispers; but present, unmistakable whispers, in the old language. Lintara breathed a sigh of relief. "Aia! I thought we had lost you for good." The priestess's form materialised within the inner chamber of the Drywater Temple, and many curtsies and hugs were exchanged. ______ Aia sat by the water's edge. The faint reflection of the moon on the pond at Raven's Peace always brought her solace; why was it so different now, she thought, as she racked her mind for her favourite memories. Mnemnosis was not kind to one's mind; she thought; some memories may be lost forever; but there was something important, just... gone. Maybe it would return to her, in time. Aia sighed; at least she was alive. ______ Necrovion stirred; an unusual state of matters for the once barren land. Dark beings shuffled within, agitated, for their Voice was gone; their Chaos apparent without its direction. Lashtal recalled watching a shadowy figure disappear, and a barrage of shades follow after. He could sympathise with their plight; after all, the humans of Necrovion had once had their own chaos, brought about by espionage and internal conflict; then had been exiled from their homes. Patrolling the land was much too dangerous now; death would already find those that dared enter. He stashed his assassination rope into his satchel; he would no longer need it, and it would hardly do to appear threatening against a barrage of shades. _____ Ailith awoke from her restless sleep. Again, she thought. Dreaming was hardly a luxury these days; if only they were more pleasant! Ailith paused to reflect before turning to a new page of her journal; the last two were already filled with visions from her dreams of the last few nights; dark figures; one a shadowy, humanoid; a blood-red moon; a tiny angien. She dipped her quill and began another expert sketch; this time the shadow of a little girl; illuminated by the glow of the faint embers of three newly extinguished candles. Such vibrant, familiar dreams, thought Ailith, as the final quill-strokes completed her artistry. Far too real for a dream - it was almost as if someone else had implanted this memory into her own mind. Frowning, she closed the pages of her journal. There were definitely some familiar places; maybe they would reveal the meanings of these vibrant memories. _____ An easterly wind brushed the cheeks of Ailith's stoic facade as she ventured south past the solitary Gazebo. Ah, here it was - the tiny angien stood within the broken frame of the ominous Howling Gates. Ailith sat beside it, and procured three candles from her satchel, placing them in the soft Necrovian sands. Satisfied, she struck a heat stone to light them, and sat in seiza; closing her eyes to the world. Maybe a continuous dream might make more sense. Three days did she keep her vigil, as travellers passed by the Howling Gates. Ailith awoke from her trance to find her candles extinguished, and her satchel full of delicious, smoked bacon, its aroma rudely interrupted by the caustic scent of belladonna. How long have I been here, she wondered. Putting this thought aside, she opened her journal and began sketching her visions once more, rapid, coarse brush-strokes making quick work of several pages. Leaving the pages to dry, she paused to consume the bacon before reigniting her candles. The gentle sway of the flames in the wind distracted her only momentarily before she closed her eyes and continued her motionless vigil. __________________________________________ The second chapter were forthcoming; if there do exist events which I cannot observe and yet were worthy of this journal, I should like to know - do send myself a message in private upon this Forum.

    A25 Quick Adventure Ideas

    I was thinking some ideas about how to make a series of scene arts more quickly & effortlessly, so players can have a quick/one time adventure or mini quest/festival event in MD for fun, or maybe even for A25 users to train/practice their tool, skill & creativity. This is how it works~ mainly I just need to draw EVERYTHING (included all items/doors/triggers etc) in a single sheet of paper and make them all clickable & glow separately. Then the A25 users can mix & match all the clickies freely in the frame and create their own scenes & puzzles, of coz we can add few more extra drawings for important scenes later so they'll look more special. Still, this method is very good to reduce workload & generate creative scenes for the fun adventure. Below are some of my concept sketches & examples(eg: Escape Room theme) only, I think you can get the basic idea~

    Scene Redesign Challenge

    This is my first time coloring a scene, and I like to focus on small things, even it can be unnoticeable & time consuming. I don't exactly remember the first day of my journey, it was a long time ago...but I still remember the mixed feeling about it. It was like playing an escape room, so many puzzles and hidden messages around me, I can't wait to click everything and search for clues. but there was no one in the Paper Cabin, then I met the Shades and the little girl (in story mode)...well, little bit creepy but I like it very much, the unknown is beautiful. Also the Paper Cabin was like a safe room to me, I was extremely curious about the "outside world", but I always go back there when I feel lost. Although it's not the place for beginners anymore, it is still one of the meaningful place in MD.

    Alliances, Guilds, Etc

    As to alliances, their structure and importance in MD is being reworked on the backend. Its no secret I and many others in MD have agreed that the current setup, especially the loyalty requirements of the leader, is not very "MD". The initial idea of loyalty determining the leader was always thought to be good. However since loyalty was gained in a number of ways that are not representing actual "Loyalty" to the land, it became pretty moot. Many of those who read this will have been asked about their thoughts on alliances over the past month, by a number of people. I have asked a couple of people to talk to people and gets ideas for a better "alliance" structure. Its something that has been on the back burner for years because its never really sat well with it. Once I can summarise the opinions I will be posting it publicly and then people can give their final opinions before I finalise an idea and start planning the changes codewise.

    Over the years, in MD, many people learned things that eventually changed their life. In 15 years of MagicDuel, this is probably the most valuable thing thing one could obtain, along with lifetime friends. I want to revive this "MD spirit" So...what is this about? Let me try to explain it People can be divided in two categories, and all people belong to both so how is this ? Each one of us has questions but also answers. In your line of work, you might be paid with 100Eur/hour or 2Eur/hour, its still an hour of your life. There are many young people that might spend years of their life searching for something they love to do, or discover that something in the most unexpected place. Myself, i teached things i knew to md people, sometimes "pro-bono" other times because i needed them to do things, but either way, in the end, they learned something new. I wish to introduce a new value unit, lets call it "lecture coins". One lecture coin equals one hour of your life sharing knowledge from your line of work, regardless what your work is. You might be a good programmer, or a doctor (and yes we have several in md), or you might be simply a delivery guy thinking you have nothing valuable to share. One lecture coin equals one hours of your life, and in that hour you must share your knowledge from your field of work, as best as you can, as if your life depended on it. The person "listening" and learning from you, will discover the tips and tricks of your particular line of work, and might love it, or might just expand his knowledge about it for other use, regardless, that person, the pupil, will pay you one lecture coin for that hour of your life. With that coin you can "buy" time from someone else, equal also one hour of their time, sharing detailed and valuable info from their own knowledge. You might think...some peoples time values more than others, and thats true...but knowledge is knowledge, and if you are looking for it, its valuable, regardles how much it costs as monetary value its still an HOUR of someones life. The rules are these: For one full hour, you will try to answer any question, but also provide unrequested info from your personal expertise, as if you would have to teach someone to do your job the next day. You will put all possible effort into this, during that hour, and that person will rate you at the end, telling if you provided info that was valuable, or not. In exchange, you receive a lecture coin, that you will be able to use for same purpose yourself. Also, you will have a "menu" presenting all possible knowledge fields you could cover, regardless how stupid or valuable they might be. You could be a SEO expert or lawyer, asking for 600$/hour, or a pizza guy that could share tips and tricks about how to do that job better, its equal value. Think that you might change lives forever, losing just an hour or two of your life, you might make someone a better person, or earn a lifetime friend. I will be the first to donate time of my life to this. I will sponsor lecture coins to anyone that wishes to participate, and get people that want to listen to what they have to say, for one hour, and these lecture coins are payment i will accept for my own time, sharing information the best i can, from any field i might have something to say about. As example, i will show you my menu, for anyone interested: My current "Menu" is this: - Learning programming in general - Tips and tricks about webdevelopment and webdev tips and tricks accumlated over years, not easy to find online - How to start to learn python (:D i am new to it too, but i will share an hour with you, guiding you through the best and most time saving info i can) - Any question you could ask a webdeveloper with 20years experience paid with 50$/h, i will consider you paid me 50$ and act accordingly, but will do only knowlede sharing, not work in your place. - neural networks, robotics, and anything related i might know - a random choice of art related activity i will pick, that you could replicate - Anything else i might know and you know how to ask, to the best of my ability - a mix of all of the above, trying to the best of my ability to find something that interests you personally. I will consider you pay me double my hourly rate, only if you are satisfied in the end, even if its all for free. - psychological adice and personal experience share of how to overcome addictions (why not, i've become an expert from my own experience and from others) - cooking lessons of my favorite food adapted to your resources I will start sharing 3 hours of my life to either individuals, or groups, and expect other professionals out there to contribute the same way. Do you want to participate and learn new stuff. Either participate as a student or as a teacher. Thats it.. i hope this initiative resonates with you, because i think MD is about knowing people and learning from them, so if you are here, lets get organized Overall i plan to put in motion 100 lecture coins, that will circulate in exchange of hours of your knowldge. 100 should be more than enough, but i will start with sponsoring you if you offer to share hours, or learn, and with hours of my time, each valuing one symbolic coin. These coins will be also given as items in your md inventory, and medals will come for those that gather most. My time is very limited so i will select the people i wish to dedicate time to, but just ask...or offer. Thats all.

    Character Design Challenge

    Time's up~ First of all, thank you for your participation & inputs! It's more than I expected and I really enjoyed reading all the submissions. It's hard to choose coz I like all of them, especially Vicious, Aia & Ailith’s stories! I think their stories are very dramatic and more engaged with the MD theme. Also it’s interesting that Ungod’s story reminds me of a Japanese horror manga “Tomie”, and Fang actually created a love story/backstory of himself, Nava was very close to the deadline but he made it. So congratulations! I changed my mind, everyone will receive a reward~ (I should find a judge next time :P) Aia - the avatar & a colored item artwork Vicious - colored item artwork Ailith - colored item artwork Ungod - b&w item artwork Fang - b&w item artwork Nava - b&w item artwork *you can sell/trade/give away the rewards whatever u like. I will contact the participants individually via forum pm. 🧙‍♀️

    A gift for Draconas

    Those of you who know me fairly well know that I sleep in the Drachorn Lair next to Bernard's left foot. Thanks to the kindness and hospitality of the Lair's inhabitants Draconas and Burns, I feel like I am welcome to stay there despite the fact that I do not seek to become a Lair Keeper. In my evenings keeping Bernard company, I have spoken to Draconas many times and I know how much he longs to go home, his love for his beloved rider and the respect he has for many who have resided in the realm. The one thing that still eludes him is a source of food that is big enough for one as great as he is. He has told me many times since I met him of his wish for a certain type of tree which bears fruit of his favourite food from his own realm. Though I have no magic or power to grant him such a tree within the realm in thanks for his friendship, I have drawn how I think such a tree would look and how I hope it would appear in MD. Draconas, I hope you enjoy this gift and accept my thanks.

    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.

    I AM HUNGRY (again)

    Due to lack of skills and even less experience I chose something simple yet delicious - pieczonki 🥰 Ingredients: couple carrots twice as many potatoes one beetroot 3 onions couple sausages solid piece of bacon bit of lard (optional) salt & pepper cabbage leaves (optional) Step 1 Chop and cut everything into thin slices. Step 2 Note: I'm using here iron cast pot due to special cooking method, but plain heat resistant pot and oven are just fine Now place ingredients into pot in following layers. First potatoes, onions, beets, bacon & sausages, salt & pepper and optionally small piece of lard (usually when lean meat used). Afterwards repeat until either you don't have enough ingredients or enough place in pot 😅 Step 3 Once you finished with stacking layers put on top cabbage leafs (just under pot cover) or thin aluminum foil, and cover everything up. My pot has screws because you know MAG is hungry so more layers = better😂 Step 4 Rather simple step prepare heat source - either oven (180 degrees C) or plain bonfire. Trick here is to put pot on embers(?) not open fire. Usually it takes 1:15 hours to cook, but believe me you'll smell when they're ready 🤩 Step 5 - hardest one Wait until ready Step 6 Once taken out of the oven or bonfire, mix contents thoroughly. Step 7 Enjoy! Smacznego

    This quest had originally been written some years hence, but Aelis hath recently solved it, and did advise me that he enjoyed it immensely. In time past, Tarquinus did grant his Spell-Document to those that solved this quest, those who solve this puzzle shall be granted mine own Spell-Document, and elegant solutions shall be additionally granted a Wish-Point, or Drachorn Charm (courtesy of Burns). It seems that the demon of the realm, Mur, hath declared the Realm of MagicDuel to be, as it were, a cube. I imagine, then, that had such a realm originated in different orientation, that Night may be a more common occurrence. Likewise, the cube in which all may come to this realm may resemble, or echo thus, this formation. I wonder then, if I were to model such an orientation, would a different orientation, and thus, outcome, be possible? If I were to mark one surface of a cube with an arrow, pointing to the north, with the marked surface facing skyward, such that it were opposite to the surface that doth contact the flat surface, and place such cube on the flat surface, such that it does not, and cannot slide, but roll, and flip over its edges when gently pushed in any of four directions, would it be possible to return the cube, in any number of the aforementioned moves, to the original space that it had occupied, with the difference that this cube must be oriented with the marked surface facing upwards, and the arrow pointing to the East; toward the Tribunal Lands, and Dominion of Mur? While the answer may be yea or nay, such a solution must come with impeccable logic, and reason, rather than endless tirade. If the answer were yea, a solution, or sequence of moves, shall satisfy, while if the answer were nay, provide impeccable reasoning, or proof, wherefore it were so. I accept proofs or solutions only via private message, either upon the Forum, or within the realm. A transcription of the Common-Tongue, for the purposes of readability: "Imagine a cube, marked with an north-pointing arrow on the upper surface, on an infinitely large flat surface. You can roll the cube over any of its edges as many times as you like, but you can't slide it and you can't turn it in place. Is it possible to return the cube to its starting location, except that the arrow is on the upper surface and pointing to the east instead? Either provide a sequence of moves which allows this, or prove why it is not possible."

    Map Identity Problem

    This is an incredible feature worthy of being placed in the wish shop, but it has its own issues, in particular, the crowded places problem. I've observed this during Chewett's cake party and Steno's April Fool's event. If there are few people in one spot (1-3 players) it looks fine, but more than that, they just cover each other. Mur's solution to this was to increase the intervals between the colored dots that represents the players, but it creates another problem where one can't actually point out where that player is. I may have a solution for this, it follows the same mechanics, only this time, if there are two (or three) or more players in a location, say the GoE, it will become a shaded place on a map (I used orange because, well, Mur) the more people there are, the bigger this shade will become. An example image: GoE at this point will have several players on it, hence the size, while MDP will have fewer than four or so. Now, when you hover the cursor over the shaded section, it will display the coordinates along with the playernames who are presently in that location. See below:  This is just a mockup, the shade color can be changed, the colored dots can even be beside the playernames in the box to distinguish what Mindpower they belong to. This will be easier for those who purchased this feature and can be very useful for a plethora of different things, or if you exhaust your locate spell, too. Let me know what you think.

    Birthday Cooking Quest!

    Ah, one of my original recipe, discovered by accident as I terribly messed up another recipe. I present, tender roasted Grasan ribs, coated in BBQ sauce. The recipe is as follow: Ingredients: A rack of Grasan ribs, butchered into pairs A bottle of soy sauce, sold inside the Wind Sanctuary Thin foils, made out of a certain food-safe metals mined inside Golemus, manufactured into thin sheets by the little mans A fine bottle of malted goodness (I remembered of a player whose role was a pub keeper, can't recall exactly, sorry) Various herbs that you may find suitable for a rack of ribs, procured from the depths of Loreroot A big Loreroot onion Wild garlic and pepper, found outside the gate of Marind Bell A fine bottle of sauce, suitable for your taste Honey, in the forest surrounding Wasp's altar Recipe: Optional: Marinade Coat the ribs in soy sauce and add a few crushed garlic cloves. You may add any other seasonings and spices that you deem fitting Leave, covered with a thin piece of paper, so that the meat is completely sealed from outside air Steaming First, finely chop the onion and crush a few garlic cloves. Dice any additional herbs you may wish to add. Lay your ribs down the thin metal sheet, one pair of ribs per sheet. Rub them with pepper and any other herbs as you deem fitting Add onion and garlic, three cloves and half-a-handful of onion per pair Shape your foil into a small curve, then pour the fine, golden malted liquid, not so much that it spills, but not so little that it couldn't coat the meat Wrap up the meat, so that the liquid can surround the meat inside the metal sheet. Using a large pot, pour in enough water to be ankle-deep, then place a small steamer base down, so that it create a nice, dry surface, away from the water Place your ribs inside the pot, and shimmer for 1.5 - 2 hours, depending on how tender you wish your ribs to be Close the lid and wait, take caution as the water may fully vaporize, in such case, simply add more (hot) water. Coating and roasting First, remove the ribs from the foil, gently tap with a piece of water absorbent paper, or left to dry on a rack. This is to ensure the coating can stick to the meat properly, and the meat can caramelize properly. This is important. Place it in an oven tray, and roast over high heat for 10-15 minutes, to achieve caramelization. Alternatively, wrap again, in a new, clean piece of metal sheet, then grill over open flame to taste. Cover the ribs with your preferred sauce and honey, with herbs that you deem fitting. The final rib should have a nice, caramelized surface, while retaining its inner moisture and tenderness. A well-cooked rib should be tender enough that you can directly pull the bone off. Serve with roasted/mashed potatoes, salad and a good mug of golden malted liquid. A few notes on debugging your ribs: If it's not bone-pulling tender, you did not steam it long enough. If it's mushy, vice versa If it's too dry, you grilled/roasted it for too long. For the caramelization process to take place, you need to have high heat in a relatively short period of time. Or that your rib is of garbage quality.

    Where have the years gone?

    Gosh, it's been quite a while since I've spoken to anyone here. Even the odd person I kept in touch with, I have the last messages sent... A year ago. I'm reading over stuff, thinking about the past and the people in it. It's weird to think that other people have been getting on with their own lives. I kind of imagine the people that "lived" here as not ever really ageing or changing in the least. Obviously, I watched people change in front of my eyes and just didn't really ever notice it. I wish I could hear everyone's stories since the last time I spoke to them, to see if everyone else has changed as much as I imagine they have. I'd be surprised if they hadn't to be honest. I'm don't know how things are going at the minute. I haven't asked, I don't really want to. In my mind, this is the place it always used to be back when I used to frequent it. There's honestly a special place in my heart for the people and places here, and it makes me tear up a little to type that, feeling silly as all heck as I do. I don't know whether this is a Hello, or a Goodbye, or what else it really could be. Something I can't put into words. That's a bit unlike me, these days. I like to think that I'm just a tad more articulate, flowery, expressive, whatever. I've had a lot of issues with expression in the past. Perhaps I wanted people to notice when I radically changed? I don't think they did, or they were kind enough to not point it out in a rude way. Maybe that's why I chose this sort of shapeshifter persona, despite how outright irritating that must have been back in the day. I loved to play characters and switch things up, and I think a lot of that was finding myself, as sappy as it reads to my own eyes. I guess my real point here is just in a way that I probably gave off a lot of wrong impressions. I don't mean that in a fake way. I'm not really planning on re/kindling up a bunch of friendships. I didn't know how to get across what I wanted sometimes. Fake hostility probably came out a lot as real hostility. This applies to EVERYONE I ever spoke to at any point. I can't say I've ever... Really, truly, actually despised anyone here, or even remotely disliked anyone for longer than a minute. No, not even you. It's bittersweet to read over things. Surprisingly, more sweet than bitter. I can't put my finger on it. I feel detached from who I used to be, though as a few people have alluded to in the past, I'm a different person entirely publicly and privately, normally. Maybe some of you haven't had a break (and I type that assuming this is going to be read by anyone, I'm fairly sure it isn't.) Maybe you're thinking about what a random little thing this is. I sure am! I've been gone for years though, I think, and think I needed to say something, though I know I've said things along these lines before, but perhaps not as heartfelt as it is now, with all the experience and knowledge I've gotten under my belt since those times. Anti-climax. Apologies. Sorry for being an annoying little s- sugarcube. I appreciate beyond what I can express in words all the things that you did for me though, intentionally or not, well-intentioned or not. I love you all, best of luck in whatever you've moved onto since we last spoke, and I hope you're all as young-at-heart as you were back then too. Here's to... I guess... Seven years ago? ~VC

    Logs of kills and revivals

    I would like to request a log of both kills and revivals be made available for all to see so that the entire population has access to data on who gets killed, how often and by whom. and examples for headers might be: Player Killed, Killer, Date, Time, Kill Method / item used and Player revived, Reviver, Date, Time, Kill Method / item used I believe that this information belongs to the entire population, and I can see no viable or arguable reason why such logs may not exist. They could be placed in MDA with the logs of item transfers etc.

    Josie's journal [Golemus Golemicarum]

    Golemus Golemicarum It was day 15 Year 14 when I turned 60 days, I fulfilled an achievement and got a wishpoint.. it seemed a bit hollow to me. I had a plan for what I wanted to do, to travel and to research. The mysteries of the realm lie before me and so far I had done nothing. So, I checked my backpack and took the boots at the Necrovion Gates, quickly speeding the road to the Golemus Gate. Stepping through, I was excited about what adventures await me there, but more importantly, what secrets lay hidden within each place I would visit. As it was already late for me, I made my camp at the Bridge of Ages when I landed in GG. I awoke feeling eager to get exploring. Ungod, who had seen my announcement in the realm status list, came to ask if I would like him to accompany me on my walk. I of course said yes, he is very nice company and a very engaging to talk to. We began at the mill, where Menhir was awaiting to gather some water. I had seen Menhir once or twice but had never spoken to him. After talking to Menhir for only quite a short time, I found him to be somewhat of a kindred spirit in terms of how we view the realm. I am very much looking forward to talking to him again. Ungod and I discussed the mill and the interesting points in what we saw before us, and the next days became a blur of discussion and ideas as Ungod accompanied me through each place. There are some things which I found immensely intriguing and am looking forward to publishing research notes on our realm forum to prompt discussion and ideas. Then.. the day that changed all, I stepped into the Drachorn lair and was speechless. Before me I saw a mighty drachorn, bound and controlled in place by tiny men. I immediately knew that this place was calling to me, my empathy for the poor beast was apparent. I took to sleeping there every night, and have been ever since. I call him Bernard for this is a name which is special to my guide in the other realm, and also because I cannot pronounce his true name as he would say it in his mother tongue. Over subsequent day, Ungod and I travelled through the rest of Golemus Golemicarum, to all places accessible to us. We spoke at length about the meanings and connotations of the various aspects visible in each scene. I found Ungod to be terribly good company and a good friend, and I hope that he will remain so for the rest of my time in this realm. There were days when my time awake here was limited, and others where I would simply walk around and think on the wonders of the island. I was disappointed that the tiny men and empty aramors that wander around almost as we do were not present. The island seemed eerily silent without them. Gradually I became more settled, more at home, and the sensation I had had in MDA paled in comparison. The island I had thought to simply explore had become my home. I was present at the Gate of Ages when Chewett came to attach the crown to the new King of Golemus Golemicarum, Miq. At that same moment, Sunfire became of mind power seven also. A momentous day indeed. Fang Archbane had begun holding training spots in and around the island, which meant that more people came to the island. I idled quite a few days away, not attending my research but becoming more aware of the simple fact that something on this island was calling to me. Then it happened, the day I knew that though I would go to explore all the other lands, that this was my home. I spoke to Miq about how I could petition for citizenship, and he told me he would make me a citizen there and then. On day 33 year 14 I became a citizen of Golemus Golemicarum. I swore an oath before Miq, which was witnessed by Fang, that I would earn this honour.. and I will. I am planning now to explore other lands, though the difference in that case is that I will be leaving behind my home to do so and will miss it. The next exploration will be in a few weeks as I have much to do with the potential research I have garnered from this island. The first subject of which I am planning to publish soon after this journal on the realm’s forum.

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    after a brief skim through this thread, i think the main issue with this Al segment comes from just how limiting it is for the whole realm, if it was just a small change in how the game plays for others then the impact might not have been so severe, however, its affecting gameplay for those not involved, and have no way to get involved. i'm all for elements that affect the realm as they do bring life to the game in some aspects, but this current Al is doing the opposite, its locking down one of the main things that are keeping some of the players active here. a story should enhance the game, not limit it, provide discussion, not opposition. that being said, why cant a compromise be made? even if it's just opening up one altar somewhere, even if it's just for a brief moment every so often, just to allow both things to exist. does it fit the "lore" of the quest? i dont know, but it would make the the state of the game easier to swallow for the people who want to participate in the aspect of the game that is now locked. new players who come to the game may want to change out their creatures or play around with these features, and cannot do so beacuse of a situation they cant participate in, i feel like a temporary solution should be reached. i'm sure there exists some solution that allows both parties to participate in the areas of the game they want to, without treading on the feet of the other.

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    *voice from the off* You all probably realized that i turned into a silent reader a rather long while back, but 'taking it to the game' is nigh impossible currently. As of this moment (which used to be a good time to be online), there's 14 people logged in, 7 of them idle. You seriously can't expect people to wait around for the exact right people to play with and do nothing meanwhile, there needs to be some stuff people can do on their own while hanging around. Otherwise they won't hang around long enough to find any catch to push the story off. I admit that i wouldn't even know about the fact that the altar is closed if it weren't for this thread, but that's because i don't have time to even play by myself... *voice goes into the off again*
