  1. And if implemented, should really therefore only for MB, and only once research on the land weapon and their mechanics are fully understood and lasts only as long as the activation requirements are met. Not as something available to all lands. 
  2. I didn't have a chance to join the discussion, so I'll just pour mu thoughts here regarding crafting:   With how me (and the other crafters) have not been very active lately, it would help expedite the item creation process if there are other avenues to which people can go to. However, from personal experience I feel it's best if these are the council members instead of a new person (especially one that gets changed the moment that person is no longer fully active).   One thing that should be kept in mind regarding items is that they stand at the real reality level - they're inner magic with a form. Most item people ask? They're at the personal reality level. And most people who applied to the crafter's guild back then did so because they wanted to create those personal reality level items. This is one of the main factors why it was hard for me to recruit new crafters that could avoid the temptation of creating all those juicy fantastic items and remember that items represents facts in MD's reality.    If we're looking at a long term system, I don't find it very feasible to find a person who fulfills such criteria everytime the previous one fades into RL. I think it would be a much more sustainable system if this was sent directly to council (personally, I'm thinking of a form that appears when you buy an item making wish on the wishshop where you can put the name/description/materials and submit the request - all fully scripted). Even those who can already create items often create personal reality level item - Council, Mur, Demigod accounts, but at least they are the highest authority in MD so if anyone should judge whether a personal reality item should be created (and thus made real reality) it should be them.
  3. Ady technically played for a very short while, I dunno bout Valy though. They're still a kind of legend on the game, though if we want to limit this to just legendary players, then perhaps they should not be counted, yes.

  5. I've been away for a while so I'm not sure... but is there a way to semi-permanently lock someone in place? Won't jump/chase/teleport spells and all that circumvent that easily?
  6.   Ah, I might have misunderstood when you mentioned "new features or features variations it will require" and thought I could go crazy with suggesting new features to support this.    Artworks and descriptions for the creatures are all ready, all that is missing is the combat ability/stats adjustment to current metagame (which I'm totally out of touch with nowadays). If you want to look at it, it's also on the forum private section on this link.    Most of the quest can be doable with current functions - new feature I mentioned are just suggestions but not really a must for it to work. One exception is probably the function to check for creature stage - I can do without the XP/wins amount but the ability to just check if the player has a certain creature would really be great. As an example the clay golem has 3 stages, and the next tier is the rock golem. Having a function to check if the player has a stage 3 clay golem before he can change it to a rock golem would be very nice (as at that point the game should identify the creature, then take it away and replace it with a rock golem - or simply change the creature type while keeping everything else the same).
  7. Progressive combiner + spells : use spells as ingredient to create an item, or even another spell. Illusion + pickable resource : illusion of resource Heat voting + progressive combiner + spells : community effort kind of spell effects (similarly can be used when you want to implement Land Weapons as usable)
  8. Wow, this is exactly what I hoped was available :D I've had a bit of the framework in mind since long ago, but I still need to flesh out the actual details. I do realize that I don't have as much time for MD, so I don't expect to actually get this selected for this particular batch, but I'm going to share the basic idea here.   What I have in mind is a game-integrated quest as a way to hand out the Golem creature as reward, and most importantly make it available even if I am not in MD anymore. Quest would include building the golem core (can be implemented as an untradable quest item that will be switched out for the actual creature's totem - but probably works better as an untradable Lv 1 creature from the beginning, with the idea that they're similar to the eggs, a very basic form for the creature). Quest chains would include performing the rites needed to upgrade the creature to the next forms (with functions checking if the creature has enough xp/wins).    Features needed (new features in bold): - needs: Implementation of the creature (artwork and creature description are all ready, abilities theme as well but I'm honestly not in touch with how combat goes nowadays. I'll need expert suggestions on how to balance the creature abilities and still make it desirable.) - needs: Clickies, functions to check creature level/xp/wins, player's principles - It can use : new clickable objects - It can use : semi-NPC characters (wodin-ish) that automatedly appear at completion of certain objectives (this is just for flavor, can just use the clickable to achieve same result otherwise). Upon further reading, this is actually similar to the clickable that appear based on other inventory items idea you mention. - It can use : a quest-specific shared gathering tool. Pickable only by those doing the quest (the tool dispatch location can be made to appear only if character is in quest), returns to dispatch location in one day to prevent abuse, collects unique material for the quest only. No transfer. In the same vein, it can use a quest specific simple combiners.
  9.   So, is this manu dude your master or your puppet, Mur? Or maybe puppet master :p

  11.   I think you're misunderstanding what reps are for. They're not for for a person who in general dislike you to spam red on you; they're for people to voice their opinion on specific posts you make. It doesn't matter whether the person has spoken to you or not before; it's about their interaction with said post, not to you in general. In fact if someone gives you reps regardless of the post's content and just because how they think of you in general, that's the actual spamming.   Now rather than pointing out specific people, why not point out specific posts and complain about those if you think the negative reps there are unjust.
  12. I play DotA 1 quite regularly, and random mix of other games (playing xenoblade chronicles with dolphin atm, and looking forward to the day I finally pick up that persona 3 FES again - got too sidetracked with others).

    That.. is a really good piece of artwork!
  14. Outside of what probably happened to you, you have to admit it was wrong to just throw accusations to people without any proof, and repeatedly slandering Chewett when he offered to investigate your case. Taking responsibilities for your actions is the adult thing to do, and I think you should serve your punishment if you really regret what you did. I'm sure 1 month in jail is nothing compared to the emotional distress you caused Chewett.
  15. Before this spirals further, please let me explain what I think happened.   Council sent me an email asking if I was ok with disbanding the Crafters, at Poe's request partly because lately our guild only has two active members. I told council that I am ok if this is what they think is the best course of action, and explained the original purpose Kragel had when he formed the Crafter's guild: as the organization for those with item creation abilities.   With Kragel gone, there were only me left. Later we have Yrth getting the item creation interface as well, but I never invited him (and he never asked for an invitation), and I personally thought that since Yrth was the king of Golemus, it just didn't make sense for him to join a LR guild  with the way our guild-land system is established and I mentioned this to the council in my email on why the current guild won't really get (the only) other item creation ability possessor to join. Btw: the creators/crafters were always a LR guild, the creators were a leftover guild from the old alliance system test and when it was given to us, it was already loreroot-based (and IIRC it was during the old alliance system as well - which might explain why the guild becomes lorerootian later on - it was never changed).   It might be bad phrasing on my part that's causing the council to think the yrth refused to join - he was never actually requested to join in nor did he ever asked to. But to confirm I did not mean that yrth told me he didn't want to join, I only meant to say that I don't think yrth would join the crafters with the current system. (actual quote below)   All in all, I don't think the announcement was an effort to throw a "blame": there's not really any fault to blame. I'm not even upset or angry at what happened; and Council also asked for my opinion before disbanding the alliance and only did so after I gave them the go-ahead-if-you-think-it's-best. I hope this doesn't turn into a blaming fest :)   And to confirm, the guild itself is not really disbanded de facto. The alliance tag is removed, yes, but we are still doing our services as usual, just without the alliance badge. Our sub forum will still be there, and you can always contact us or look for updates from us there.   Cheers,   Ud
  16. Yep, can see it now. Before I get to the part where you said you updated it I had thought "hey, how come I never noticed that stuff over there? :)) " 
  17. Hmm, does it differ based on browsers (I'm on chrome)? The #5 for me only shows the #entry one. Clicking it just brings me straight to the post without any popups.
