    Tarquinus reacted to No one in Shared tools   
    Hi Samon,

    You seem to disregard LotE / TB 's items as there are no tools just for this land even if it is 3 times greater then any of the "main" lands.
    Also, there is UG that has absolutely no tool what so ever.

    Whatever the repartition of the tools will be, whether the land loyalty will be change or just item location dispatch, there is always my proposal: [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/13674-private-gathering-tools-their-trader/"]Private Gathering Tools[/url] that will allow the creation of new tools to only where is a need and will.


    Best regards,
    No one

    No

    Every land has the right to control the supply of tools. If I want something I cannot get by collecting by myself, I buy them or earn them.

    I'd have to say that memory stones are the most useful resource, and their limited supply is bothering me.

    We have spent some time looking at the possible options and feel that the best solution is to offer everyone that lost access due to the bugfix the ability to "trade in" some of their wishpoints for the access again. This would involve removing something that they had originally purchased. This is to reflect the fact that people may value access to these locations more than things they later purchased.
    We are still very sorry that the fix had to be implemented, but want to try and ensure that as few people are affected by this as possible. If you lost access and wish to trade one or multiple of your Wishpoints for access, email us the following (copied from the used WP page) one or more times. Only those who lost access to the locations are able to do this.

    WP access: Beserkers Charge

    WP to remove:

    Playername of wish giver on date:

    Reason for WP:

    Used for: Locate spell 8 charges, regenerable

    You and Chewy keep referring me back to that announcement, but I read it at the time and I have no recollection of any WPs having been refunded; and if they had been, I would surely have used them to re-purchase access. Perhaps I am wrong, but simply pointing to an announcement from over a year ago doesn't make the case.

    [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1363000071' post='133763']
    I have modified the Current and past WP's page to detail what you have used them for. This should allow people to tally up what they spent.
    [/quote]
    Thank you.

    Edit: Well, it seems that I "blew" the refunded WPs without meaning to, because Oak Tower and Berserker's Charge are back in the Wish Shop for me. The fault, of course, is mine. Apologies, and thanks again for the change to the WPs page.

    There seems to be a disconnect because I honestly don't recall any WPs having been refunded, and now I am faced with the loss of access. I'll put it simply: this is not the end of the world to me. Tarq still has a spell to get in Oak Tower, and Necrovion is effectively closed to him at this point, so the loss of access of Berserker's Charge is no big deal. But it's discouraging, you know? I am very much in favor of limiting access to people and I applaud everything you, Chewett, have done. But I'd like to know if there is some way to trace what I spent my WPs on and verify that I did in fact spend "refunded" WPs without knowing I was doing so. If it's a pain in the ass, let it slide for now! This to me is [u]not that important[/u]. But there is a morale factor in it, and I know it has affected Amoran the same way it affected me. I'd just like to think there's some way it can eventually be sorted out. If I can help in any way, please let me know.

    [quote]Ann. 2041 - [2011-10-01 20:35:05 - Stage 11]
    Wishes that grant access to different locations, such as Oak Tower, several Marind Bell places, Loreroot back entrance and Bersekers Charge, were reset. All that spent wishpoints for them received their wishpoint back. These wishes are now fixed and won't reset when moving to the next MP level how they did before. In addition, K doc wish was also reset but not part of this bug fix. Those that already have access to those places keep their access, it didn't reset with the wishpoint. This makes the access "for free" and also locks those wishes from being used. It is a side effect of the big fix but enjoy it.[/quote]

    [quote]Ann. 2509 - [2013-03-09 22:21:10 - Stage 11]
    A number of key related issues where fixed for Oak Tower, LR Back Entrance and Beserkers Crypt. If you previously were refunded the WP you will now need to buy it again to continue using the access. If you feel you have lost a key wrongly contact bugs@magicduel.com stating why you got the key freely.[/quote]

    I don't understand why the wishpoints were 'refunded' in the first place if people just wanted to block access in the future. At least a warning should've been given saying 'Look dude. You might get royally screwed in the future as we will ask you to pay again so save up the wishpoints so that you can use them later when we cure you of the 'side effects of the big fix'.' I don't really understand how the coding works and what all keys were corrected, but wishpoints are really hard to get and I really loved my access to the the closed areas. Don't get me wrong. I am not asking you to give me wishpoints or opening the areas again. I just want to ask you people to give a friggin heads up next time because its really fishin frustrating to get a refund for that beautiful fridge you've always wanted to buy saying it was a result of some policy change, then suddenly taking it away without any heads up and asking for payment saying that the shop policy was just fixed and you'll need to spend to buy it back. Oh well market people, I already spent the cash you refunded me saying the fridge was for free. Now I really need the refrigerator and don't have the money to buy it back. Thank you very much for your genius fixes because they just ruined my magical experience.

    You didn't get my point.

    [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]- you want Adventure Log continued: usual ppl were followed and commented with no real need of RP from their side[/font][/color]
    [/quote]

    There was a way for people to interfere though, but I am not talking about Adventure Log itself, I am talking about a side-branch story of lesser importance, but in relation with Adventure log, what should be 'the main active RP story' of the game. Those side-branch events would, in difference to Adventure Log, let players find their way into the highlight and give freedom of choice. Options can be many, but one of them could be a quest, where players would be encouraged to solve a puzzle journey to find an artifact, which the solver would receive as prize for finding it first.

    But you would remove that OOC approach "let's play a quest!" we get for most of current quests, either made by admins, either made by players.
    Things would simply happen, without an announcement "solve me", people would pick up clues and try to find out what is actually going on. It would be an in character sort of thing.
    That also answers your two other thesis.


    At the moment, we are missing an active 'main' story, for years now. I think it's an integral thing to be present in our beloved realm if we want to refresh the global desire to play MD, and maybe get some extra people.
    I'm not trying to put pressure on anyone in charge to get something like this done as soon as possible, I just think it is a reasonable thing to be put on a "goals" list, and in one of the first places too. If we don't have the required energy and will to make a 'main' story of a sorts present and alive, then what are we playing? [u]We are maintain a game, we are not playing it[/u]. To clear it up, I don't have that approach, I still find MD much fun and I am sad I don't have enough extra time to invest more in it, but I am trying to make a point.


    The point is not to make the game 'fixed', to go in a straight direction, no, of course the creation of players themselves and the way they act in realm should be the axiom of general game status (political, social, cultural, you name it), but, there should be something else present, that we currently lack.

    I remember how I was impressed by the Adventure Log people, when I registered here, by reading the active chapters on the side bar, and then, all of a sudden meeting them in a regular scene. That is a huge factor to make a person like this game and keep on playing, or keep the old players playing with more wind in their back.

    No, it's not. There are spoiler rules for a reason. Let me quote myself.

    [quote name='Change']
    In almost all, if not all of the other games that I've played I've felt pressured to mine the forums for every bit of info about the game. In magicduel it's different. I still haven't leveled up a remains fully for instance, and I can't wait to find out what the max level is like exactly, [b]on my own[/b]. That's the case even if it's nothing special. In any other game, there'd be a wiki detailing every single level and stats of all of the creatures, which rituals are good for what, etc. In most other games, one can know everything that there is to know about a game by reading up on it beforehand.

    A good guide for whether or not something is a spoiler is whether or not it's on the wiki.[/quote]

    Greetings, one and all. I return from a long period of inactivity, but others have carried the flame in my absence. I now wish to muster those who still call themselves Children of the Eclipse.

    This is the roster of current, active members, to the best of my knowledge:[list]
    [*]Mystic
    [*]Amoran K Kol
    [*]Phantom Orchid
    [*]Esmaralda
    [*]Tarquinus
    [*]Darry Dabby
    [*]Aranna
    [*]Marvolo*
    [*]Karak**
    [*]Sparrhawk**
    [/list]
    *affiliation uncertain
    **possibly semi-active

    If you consider yourself a member of the Eclipse and do not see your name on this roster, contact me via PM.

    [center][b][size=5]Darkness Gathers[/size][/b][/center]
    In the past we have held ceremonies honoring the goddess of the Moon. While we intend to continue honoring the Great Goddess, tripartite goddess, and so on, the priesthood tells me we must summon the darkness within ourselves - the worst thoughts, feelings, and memories. Nothing will be done except by the bloodiest blows. In recognition of this fact, we will hold a ceremony (also called a "Red" service) at Maple Road, 06:00 Day 34 server time. All are welcome to come, fight, bleed, and share in the offering of our pain to the hopeful light in the darkness.

    There may be other convocations or "services" at later dates to be determined.
