    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.

    (Some feedback about the user interface for mobile devices: having dynamic elements which change with screen size isn't ideal for pinching and zooming, which tends to scale them so they block lots of other things and/or the element you are trying to click on won't expand... or sometimes it just crashes and reloads the page. On a mobile webpage platform this could maybe be alleviated by either removing the dynamic scaling so one could pinch and zoom the elements to be large enough to select with our fingertip, or to use larger elements, although screen real estate on mobile probably makes this difficult. Thanks again!)

    yes thats a bug i am trying to fix, the entire panel should be on the entire height of the device, and opens anywhere you tap it, or mouseover. Somehow its not reading the correct height for now, will fix it soon. For now i am finishing the creature pages, from flash to html, and to fit new layout. Check it out in the next hour thanks for the feedback and the screen

    Hi, At this point i am doing a significant amount of live changes daily. While it would be pointless to dicuss each issue as there are so many and many things change every minute, you could help if you could send me periodic (once a day is enough) screenshots of the things you find wrong. Since there are not too many that got involved with this, i am trying to adjust the layout so it will look perfect for your resolution, and acceptable for everything else. The lowest usable resolution is 640px , thats pretty insane, but its a stripped out version. I intentionately crippled flash, so i will notice it missing and see what things get broken due to it. As soon as i finish the general layout , i will move on to replace flash elements with equivalent html. Sadly...this coding marathon is not for migrating flash content such as scenes and puzzles. For now my aim is just to make the base for a full html MD. An other very important purpose of this work is to change the interface in such a way that it will be more relevant to how the actual gameplay is. If you have suggestions of what elements to show in better places, tell me. Please understand that i will not reply as much because i prefer to focus on work. The main communication way i will check will be the in-game chat on warventure. This marathon continues for about a week more..lets see how much i manage to do in this time Thanks for your involvement and help

    (I don't know if it's ok to make this topic, but it'll get deleted if it's not) I can't do much in the clone because there is no 'enable flash' button, so I don't see map and messages (erolin device also not loading)...does anyone know how I can enable flash there? So far, I spotted that in the tag menu, the selected tag (orange circle) is slightly out of bounds; there's a warning:implode(): invalid arguments passed in /home/warventure/public_html/sitegizmo/worldmap.php on line 38 at the login screen; a parse error:syntax error, unexpected '(' in /home/warventure/public/ui/ weaponinventory/load_manu.php on line 1. I also can't seem to be able to turn off the snow/frost background which, although looking cool, make the page loading times longer and I usually turn it off. I like the animation of the menu, but I have to say I like the 'classic' chain one we have now...maybe it can be used somewhere if it's replaced.

    @Aia del Mana maybe you can post a screenshot of the issue? @Mallos item inventory is not done yet, what you see its still the old one. I am thinking to make the items open by detlfault in a large panel. On mobile i made the sidebar to open fullscreen, and i will probably make it open by default when using the sidebar or clicking something that opens the sidebar. So far everything went ok, but i am starting to get into details that can waste a lot of time for very little visible effect. Profile stats will be displayed differently as well, with this interface i afford doing some wild things i always wanted to see in other games i am thinking for example, to put some stats under the elements that they influence, and not all grouped together in one place. Let me know where you think i could fit a stats bar, for example briskness near erolin and AP and cartography under the viscosity info?

    Some misalignment on the bottom panel where the pictures for your items show up, after using the inventory icon.

    I did find it quite the challenge to set of a status - it doth appear that the "open" button on the right were obstructed by the Compass which there also lies.

    noted, the left elements are not all ready, erolin device debug panel is the blue red one and its taking much space, the counter/timer is also not ready yet (not functional). The stats and the scene, all flash, are there just so i can migrate them, not to look nice for now. The white scene is probably the most important thing right now. I will leave flash as white so it will be easy to migrate the images, i am not sure right now.. thanks for the screen, today i will finish some more

    Well on 1920 x 1080 resolution there is a lot of overlapping elements, I also can't use the scene arrows For comparison here is the mobile client:

    I'm starting a novel/reputation needed

    I remembered today about a talk I had with someone about...long life? She told me of a 120 years old woman who said that all her life she did as she pleased. Now, the person I was talking to has a habit of drawing the wrong conclusions, so I had to stress that you don't get to 120 by doing whatever crosses your mind. If she reached 120, she must have had modest wishes; the point here is to not feel caged, to live life in a relaxed manner, free from mental or physical excesses. You don't reach 120 by going to bars all nights and pouring alcohol into you; it doesn't work that way. All the more as the woman was Mongolian, and it's not like there are many temptations in the steppe. But because the one I was talking to has this tendency of ignoring these tiny unimportant details called FACTS, and just rushes to a conclusion, she was kinda telling me how you need to do as you please if you want to have a good, long life. This is what inspired the following: Doing as you please Nlo yawned. Whatever can be done for fun in here? he thought. Life is dull, really, really dull. He was standing at the base of the marble stairs, fixating the fountain. One would think Nlo was impressed with the beauty, the artistry of it, but no - Nlo was not that kind of guy. He wanted to make life more interesting, and there was nothing interesting about order and stability. People must do as they please, to really live. And Nlo was doing as he pleased all the time. The pillars at the top of the stairs were shiny, sure, but they were dull, really dull. Nlo started to doodle on them, because he was doing as he pleased all the time. He got bored soon, and decided what these pillars really need is the power to inspire. Arousing the intellect, creating sparks within one's imagination, that kind of thing. How better to achieve it than by writing some motivational quote that would make people really appreciate these pillars? 'You are your own pillar of strength' sounded too old-fashioned, and the play was perhaps too obvious. For a moment, he thought of writing 'Romanes eunt domus', but then again, not many would know the reference...How about 'Mur said be happy?' Nlo wrote in italics Mur said be happy. Then he wrote Marind shall rent you her umbrella for a quid and Chewett said this is Nlo's abode. You see, Nlo always did as he pleased, even though 'Mur said' or 'Chewett said' were taboo words in MD (or are they?). Suddenly, Nlo found himself into the prison. Who reported him?! A candle (it's December, the prison got decorated) threw light over a small bench, where Nlo saw Rudolph shaking his head continuously. The poor reindeer was locked up for indecent behavior and hadn't had a drop of alcohol in days. Nlo began to pace to and fro. Did he cross the line? Nah, the right way to live is to do as you please. There's no meaning in it if you do what others ask you to, if you feel restrained. He wasn't in the wrong. He ignored the mumbling reindeer and started doing some warm-up exercises, just because he could. Then he named the walls - this one's Cassandra, this one is Alexandra, then Priscilla, Laetitia. Nlo was now running from Priscilla to Cassandra, from Cassandra to Laetitia, from Laetitia to Alexandra and so on - because he always did as he pleased. There was no way to tell the time, but Nlo decided it's night and he'd better prepare for a cold one. He glanced at the bench (and the reindeer) and decided against it. Indeed, the best way was to fall asleep in the arms of Emily.

    Mallos returned to the way of cleansing, questioning his sanity, or more accurately questioning Fang's sanity. "What does he mean, shades? I've never heard of such things, the sun doesn't allow it, does it? They reflect us? No, I'm not very reflective. He's gone mad, too much time sitting in a graveyard I expect." As he relaxes by the fire he notices movement within it. One of the books used for kindling is turning pages as if being blown by the wind. Oddly he notices that it isn't burning like it should be. He gets up to inspect it closer. Upon further examination the book is completely unharmed by the flames and is cycling back and forth between chapters. In a moment the flame is disturbed and erupts towards him, nearly catching him on fire if not for the fact the flame did not seem to be there. The fire neither burned nor emitted heat. Mallos decided to reach into it, confirming his suspicion. He took a moment to catch the pages of the book, which suddenly stopped turning as he touched it. The writing was there but the words were ineligible. Nonetheless Mallos began to flip through the pages to look for anything of interest. One such page emerged as it had diagrams of a simple trapezoid, but nothing too complicated. It had marks on each side which seemed to refer to the angles of the shape, but the same marks were listed again at the bottom of the page alongside what looked like a compass pointing to the four cardinal directions. Mallos concluded that this was all of value he could find in the book. Somewhere in the East a river begins flowing with fresh water from the rain clouds that have been gathering slowly... ___ -A time for consolidation at last- The young beast eyes Mallos from afar but as it approaches him things are not what they appeared to be. The flame Mallos is sitting by erupts with vigor engulfing everything in sight. Startled, the beast retreats but it is powerless to do anything as it is lifted into the air and feels its life drained from it. Suddenly from within the flames a great pyramid appears, floating atop a mountain and the beast is set gently beneath it, far from where it came.

    Wake up and take control of our fate, we must not be beholden to these ideas of what is or should be! 😽 ___ Mallos sat in the Way of Cleansing, wondering why the boots are battery powered when there isn't so much as a single outlet in all of Necrovion. "At least there is warmth here" he thought, contemplating his eventual escape. He could feel a dark presence within Necrovion but couldn't tell if it was some part of him or some almagamation much worse than he was... Meanwhile, Fang Archbane continued to question the shade of eternal souls for what it will do in time. Without hints the situation stagnated with no response. ___ Meanwhile, a young one awoke for a second time upon Gateway island. -I've been here before, but not like this. Death will do me no part this time-

    Mallos walks into the graveyard and shouts "Fang! Where are you?" Slowly a puppy appears into view and floats upside-down above Mallos' head. Fang Archbane takes a moment to observe Mallos. He sees a cloaked figure below him with only an empty skull and long black, feathery wings. Mallos begins to speak: "I need to tell you that there's a change of plans. I can't perform the ritual anymore, there is no essence left over. Maybe we can find another way to revive you." ___ Meanwhile Fang sits next to the Stone of Twisted Souls as Mallos walks up to him. "How's it hanging old friend?" "Oh, from a noose, took care of that problem before it began" Mallos replies with a smirk on his face, as he lights a cigarette. "Wh... What?" "Don't worry about it. Hey, what are you talking to this stone for anyways?" Fang proceeds to gesture towards the shades "I'm not talking to a stone, I'm talking to them." "I don't see anything but a gravestone..."

    “The shades will poison you, you must help me, save me from this” ___ A primal urge surged in the young being, survival or fury, some mix of the two. It fled before it could be seen but attempted to regain hold of itself. Faintly the scent trail could be picked up, leading into Marind Bell and so it followed. -I will find you and you will be mine again- It stopped at Wind's Crossing, suddenly no tracks could be found. Confused the beast wandered further south. ___ Lashtal sauntered over and opened a hand to beckon to Mallos. "Ah I forgot" Mallos mused aloud. He had yet to pay his offering to lashtal for requesting entrance to Necrovion. He produced a vial of blood in response. "This? This is not what I requested." "Yes, I know. It's not my blood, but I have an aversion to such offerings. It is of someone elses, I hope that will suffice." "I think we can make that work." Mallos hands the vial of Maebius' blood to lashtal.

    Patiently Mallos awaits his rescue, pickles or a warm smile would do fine. He observes a dark figure silently collecting bones around the area. Mallos thinks to himself: "I wonder what he does with all those bones. Maybe I'll ask him. Actually, better I don't, maybe he causes them to appear. I mean, that's probably not right. Lashtal always seemed innocent enough... I'm sure these priests just need to learn how to plow and they wouldn't starve so frequently." ___ Arriving on the mainlands without incident, the youngling proceeds to head north. The gates of MDA prove no obstacle to it anymore. Within the gardens it deliberates. -The scent is here, all over, must have been recent- Minglers gather to watch a ceremony while a large storm is on the horizon to the south...
