    John Constantine reacted to Ary Endleg in Hidden erolin message and it's meaning?   
    Thanks, now that makes some sense. (assuming we got the word order right, it's circle afterall)
     
    Translated from Latin it would mean something like:
    erolin defeats man, man overcomes time
     
    Still what does word erolin mean? :))

    John Constantine reacted to Ary Endleg in Hidden erolin message and it's meaning?   
    I noticed something in plain sight that each of us sees and dismisses it on daily basis.
     
    We all know our erolin device that is used for combat heat multiplication as well as spell casting heat, praying heat and item heat. However this isn't really a talk about the device, it's actually a talk little words in it.
     
    When you get to certain amount of heat in device, it starts to spin rings, which start to separate as you put more and more heat. Thing is, those rings have words inscribed on them. They are super hard to read and all separate rings have same words.
     
    There are 6 words. I managed to read 3 of them, 2 of those seem to be latin. They are homo and hominis. 3rd readable word is erolin.
     
    I didn't managed to read other 3 words, it's too messy, two of those 3 words seem to be same. Maybe somebody else gets better luck at reading it?
     
    Thing that troubles me is... why are 2 words on latin, while other words don't resemble anything latin (even as unreadable as they are)?
     
    What does "erolin" word really mean?
     
    What exactly is this hidden message in the erolin heat rings and what does it mean?

    Eroline (female form) comes from Errol (the Weasley's owl in HP).  You've just discovered an old secret that was kept for years:  Mur is a Harry Potter  fan!

    John Constantine reacted to Rophs in Name a TagMaster   
    Mur definitely already has a TagMasters type thing in the works (a TagMaster being able to give out many of a tag such as Bringers of Light, Death Guard, etc). This thread is for people to suggest potential TagMasters. This thread is by no means affiliated with Mur and anything inside may or may not be implemented, likely straying on the side of may not.
     
    Syntax for a tag suggestion:
    Tagname - TagMasterofTagName
    Why TadMasterofTagName is should be TagMaster of TagName
     
    My suggestions for tags and their associated TagMasters:
    Tainted - Assira the Black
    This should be pretty much self-explanatory. Assira is the leader of the Tainted and allowing her to distribute that tag would increase clarity overall.
     
    Death Guard - Azull
    He's king of NC and TW, there's nobody more suited to be TagMaster of Death Guard.
     
    Bringers of Light - Princ Rhaegar
    He's leader of BoL ally and King of MB, similar to Azull there is nobody more suited .
     
    Silvan Watch - Valoryn
    Valoryn is the leader of Guardians of the Root which is an ally dedicated to keeping LR safe, it would make strong thematic sense for the leader of such an ally to also be TagMaster of Silvan Watch.
     
    Embers of Kelle'tha - Menhir
    This tag seems a lot more like a Researchy/Abstractish tag than one with a purpose as obvious as Death Guard or Silvan Watch. I personally think Menhir's character fits the idea of an "Ember of Kelle'tha" best out of all Golemians.

    John Constantine reacted to Aeoshattr in Pieces of the past (QUEST!)   
    UPDATE 2!!!
    Bonus stage now running. Read post at the bottom. Deadline: 8th February 2015, 23:59 ST.
     
    I'll keep it short.
     
    Your goal in order to complete this quest is the following: Find 5 names according to the details given below.
    There are 5 short poems located in 5 different locations across the realm which will give a clue as to either the name, tag or a popular spellword used by the respective person.
     
    For clarity, here are the stages:
    1. Find the 5 locations.
    2. Find the words which reveal the poem at each location.
    3. Read and interpret the poems.
    4. Send the details to me (via forum PM), as such: Scene - Clickable name (or description) - Key Word - Player Name.
     
    ATTENTION!
    There is an INSTANT win clause. Solve the following puzzle and you win the first prize immediately, regardless of the progress of the other participants. The only clue I can give is that each line of the puzzle may or may not be connected to the rest.
     
    Puzzle:
    KUL NARAD
    URR MASACHEVI
    EMIC GARGATUA
    UCI KIMINATCHA
    TOK JUGRAMA
     
    REWARDS (provided by the TKs)
    1st prize: Nutcracker
    2nd prize: 2 Gold Coins
    3rd prize: 1 Gold Coin
     
     
    CLUES
    I will post (and update) clues as to where these locations are and what their key words are. NOTE that is ALLOWED for you to come and ask me in-game for clues. I will only answer public requests (no PMs, so when you ask consider that someone else may find out the clue too!) and I will not allow chat-spamming to clear it and the use of any chat distorter will disqualify you (from the instant win clause too). I reserve the right to award clues as I see fit. I will label with L clues to locations and with W clues to keywords.
    I will provide additional clues in this post if it is deemed that it is too difficult to progress.
     
    BASE CLUES:
    1. Clear water (L).
    2. What is it that my knife cannot cut? (W).
    3. Sword (L).
    4. I bring about change. (W).
    5. Shelter (L).
    6. What am I to a heretic? (W).
    7. What treasures do I hide? (L).
    8. Keeps home warm (W).
    9. Fountain (L).
    10. I am mystery (W).
     
    New Clues:
    1. All the players you are looking for have also written on my PL.
    2. There are no clickables (for this quest) in Necro, GG, or the Laby.

    What would be the ideal format for these to be finalized in? With pencil, ink, or on the computer? An example of a symbol I have drawn on the computer turned out like this:
     

    Though I could likely improve on that.

    John Constantine reacted to Chewett in Jealousy   
    I know what you have done, and what you are doing, and still disagree that you are the right person to do it, you havent grown up yet. Dont assume everyone who knows is happy with you. A lot more people know than you think.

    Also calling out "Oh I would love to tell you but I cant" is bragging. You can say it nicely without overstressing it multiple times of "Oh I cant, sorry"

    John Constantine reacted to No one in Jealousy   
    Mean reply. You should not read this.
    [spoiler]
    This is how I read it :
    <<when you will see what this "favor" was about>>  --- wait and see what he received
    <<you became blind now and don't see that other people work>> --- you should have access to my accounts to be able to see the otherwise hidden work they do
     
    Don't worry Mur, if we can't convince one-another from the beginning, we have to trust time will sort out which was right.
    *1) generic was intended -- who knows, Mur knows better
    *2) someone should read Dst's signature / Decalogue
     
     
    @Dst:
    You need to be logged in MD to read those.

    John Constantine reacted to dst in Jealousy   
    In the same day lone wolf (aranna included but he was imo a "collateral" ) and nadrolski were given some free stuff (check http://magicduel.com/page/Announcement/view/1897 and http://magicduel.com/page/Announcement/view/1899).
     
    lone wolf and nadrolski were some of the biggest grinders in MD. By being given those stuff, Mur actually changed their "activity". Or at least he decreased it (since nadrolski hasn't stopped organizing GGG like trainings but at least he's quite busy with grinding water which doesn't bother too many at the extent his grinding was bothering).
     
     
    Now, on topic: I was never jealous of things one got. Sometimes I was angry because people that didn't deserve them got them. And then they abused them. I don't think I need to give names. And I was RIGHT. Every time.

    John Constantine reacted to Pipstickz in Jealousy   
    This is both intended to explain to Mur how people feel about "favours" and to try to convince people not to feel that way. I feel qualified to explain the issue because I've felt the same jealousy, and I've mostly left it behind now.
     
    Mur often gives "favours" to younger players who have involved themselves in the community, often vocally. In this, he is similar to a big business trying to fill a middle manager's position: As a big boss, you want the young, excited people who are full of energy and who will hopefully serve your company for years and years to come. Mur gets excited, thinking that this person could possibly change the face of MD permanently in a way that he couldn't himself, or that they'll solve a puzzle that he imbedded and probably forgot about. Generally what happens next is everybody else sees the "favour", gets angry, and pushes the person who received it to do less with it.
     
     
    This is in no way directed at Seig nor is it intended to villainize him, as it's really a natural thing to feel this jealousy and most if not all players here feel it or have felt it, but it's misguided. Seig is simply what triggered my memories of the same feeling.
     
    When somebody gets a "favour", most of the time it seems to have been easily gained. In Lone Wolf's case, for example, he did almost nothing but show up to the public meeting where it was decided that he would get a memory stone collector. This is the first trigger of the jealous feeling, the idea that "I could have had that". The second trigger is the lack of openness surrounding the "favours". In Fang's case for example, I don't know why he became MP7, and I never asked. This is because often the recipients of the "favours" lack social skill or are difficult to talk to (Lone Wolf, DD, Seig, Fang, dst, and even Mur himself, all similar in this aspect), and so people who aren't connected to them somehow or haven't spoken with them in the past probably won't ask about anything when they actually want to know.
     
    TLDR:
    If you want to know about something, just ask someone. If you want to get something, work toward it. Sorry for being an idealist.

    John Constantine reacted to DARK DEMON in Legacy   
    Personally I think none of this should have happened.
     
    You jump into too many things at the same time Mur and end up in a mess. You really need someone to hold onto your leash and make sure you finish something you start on before you even think of starting something else.
     
     
    I will help, but I'm strongly against this kind of attitude.
     
    You KNOW your weakness, you KNOW you will forget things, yet you continue doing exactly that.
     
     
    I'm not trying to sound harsh, just being realistic and suggesting how to avoid this kind of situation.

    John Constantine reacted to Muratus del Mur in The cage - TB citizenship reward   
    "Sometimes i feel my body as a cage.. if i try to escape, it hurts, my eyes, my mouth, my ears, act like metal contours that cut deep and painful. If i try to hide deeper inside this cage, i lose sight of light and get lost in a world i fear dreadfully. Sometimes when i just sit at the cage's window and look outside, i realize that i'm watching through the eye windows of someone else...   ..no, i didnt smoke/drink/shoot anything, this is my nightmare i had since i remember myself.    why am i sharing this here? because sometimes i need to shout . "   ====== you're answer should not exceed the above text. There are no guidelines to what the question is or what you should do, write, comment, etc. Pick your question and pick your answer.  whoever will trigger my attention will get a reply and a second clue. Shock me.   I will reward the person that triggers my attention the most with tribunal citizenship   asskissing will disqualify you questions will be ignored as part of this provocation but might be answered. private pms will disqualify you

    John Constantine reacted to lashtal in Principlies vs Forces   
    I'm afraid few words can't really describe what a principle is about, I'd suggest those interested to read Mur's book or at least the principles' description on the homepage.
     
    That said, you are just replacing the word "principle" with "force", which is imho less appropriate.

    John Constantine reacted to No one in Ann 3180 - THE COUNCIL HAS BEEN DISBANDED   
    This was "in the making" for a very long time.
    Even if I don't agree with this ... the Future will judge us all. :P
     
    There is still some hope: Chewett. Along with the other responsible players will try to keep MD at bay. :D They will protect us from Mur :D just joking
     
    Mur will soon empower a few more players (I think), if so lets give them the benefit of the doubt, I know I will ... at least for a week or 2 ;)
     
    Then it is our duty to show them what they're are doing wrong. Keep in mind that we should also let them know when they are doing things right.
     
    So, lets have fun.
