    Public apology

    Hello all. This is a long over due apology. I havent been the best of a player recently. There are a lot of people i have done wrong to and i regretted it. Ive burned a lot of bridges here and lost some good friends. My first apology goes to chewett. For those who dont know ive spoken to chewett on personal levels. He has been trying to be there for me even in my rough times and ive been nothing but mean to him. For that i am sorry. He has still to this day tried to work with me and help me and i let my personal issues get in my way and id explode on him. Blaming him for things that really isnt his fault. Chewett id like to say thank you. Youve put up with a lot of my bullshit and still tried to help me. Your a good person and i am sorry for the way i have acted and treated you these past years. Please forgive me. I am trying to better myself. My next apology goes to golemus. It was i that played the hand in destroying your guild and in turn it seemed to silence your land. I was mad at the king grido and was mad about a lot of things. Dst and others made promises that were never fulfilled. I regret that as well. Miq you did a lot of work to earn it back and i respect that and i really am sorry i ever handed it over to dst. You are also now king and you deserve it more than grido did. Your a good person. All hail king miq. Long live golemus. I hope the people of the land can forgive me. To all others and there are many , id like to say i am sorry. Some i have been rude to for no reasons. Others ive been mean to because i couldnt get my own selfish gain. Im not always the best of person. I have some RL mental issues that yes ive been battling with among other things. Though this should not be an excuse. I am trying. Ive been getting help and working on myself. I want to rebuild the bridges ive burned and i want to dedicate myself to the dead entirely as many know my character has always revolved around the dead. From this day i swear to try my best to be a better player and mend broken friendships. I know its not something that will happen over night but i hope all can forgive me and give me a chance to fix my wrongs. I thank you all who have been patient with me. Chewett most of all. I love this game and plan to stay as long as possible. I hope we can mend the broken ties. Thank you all. I wish you all the best. I am terrible with apologies i hope this is meaningful to you all. Thanks for your time.

    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.

    In order to benefit from the lecture coin, i wish to moderate any such initiative. This means: i should be informed of who the teacher is, who the student(s) are/is, so i can ask them if you really gave your best, and reward you your lecture coin for the hour you donated to this cause. I reserve the right to deny any coin rewarding for such activity that i feel it might be scam or undeserved. Also, in other words, if you have something valuable to share and find interested people, i will sponsor 1 coin per hour, up to 100 coins total. After this, coins should be put back in circulation by time exchange of similar sort.

    I had also been under the impression that thine Principles also should dictate thine magic, I suggest that a certain combination of Principles may also determine spells for thee, or that which may be unlocked in the Wish Shop. As an example: Transposition + Balance -> teleport to Paper Cabin spell (or from Gateway Island) Entropy + Transposition -> open Necrovion entrance Imagination + Darkness -> cast dreams Light + Syntropy -> share vital energy Of course, I believe this may simply add to that which a player would desire of the Principles, just to obtain these spells, which were not my intention. For this reason I had wanted the ability upon mine own character to remove the principle of another, with permission and only with very good reason, that doth encompass the identity and role of the character that doth wish the change. Within combat, I would think that some Principles should boost certain creatures or abilities of them, without changing one's intrinsic statistics. Thus would exist a system whereby one wouldst be more inclined to use a particular creature in combat if one already has principles that do strengthen it. As an example: Balance -> boosts vampiric aura and skillvampire auras and gives extra stats when close to balanced wins and losses Entropy -> boosts Martirism ability and decreases randomness of random attacks (Jokers/Grasans) Syntropy -> boosts amount gained by heal and lifesteal ability and regeneration auras Cyclicity -> boosts all stats depending on number of wins that particular ritual has won Elements -> boosts abilities of Water Beings, Elementals, Trees, and Winderwilds Imagination -> boosts abilities of Jokers, Santas, Nutcrackers, and Shades Darkness -> increases chance for abilities to miss or change target (such as Freeze Aura on your creatures) Light -> Unfreezes up to two extra creatures each ritual and boosts starting vitality Time -> boosts creature abilities depending on age Transposition -> boosts creature abilities when fighting against creatures of the same type I believe the above would require quite a lot of code-work if something were to be implemented this way. However, in the end, I believe that Principles should be of this intent - that they do define thine character, and her actions and behaviour within the realm, rather than to change combat, or to make one stronger than another. One couldst think that the benefits of Principles could also change with the seasons, or months, such that one cannot make a decision that were maximally optimal in the long term.

    Add some cool magic, exclusively for battles that rely on principles. With lots of flashy effects and sounds.
