  1. As some of you might remember, i used to be the drachorn guy. I just realized how long it's been when i looked up the corresponding announcement https://magicduel.com/page/Announcement/view/4044 To my knowledge, there hasn't been any serious attempt at picking up the role, so i once more encourage whomever it may concern to prove your skills and claim it for yourself! About the poll, i don't consider the charms 'mine' anymore, but i still have technically unlimited access to the drachorn cave. Seeing as i finished my exams, i can make a little more time for MD again, and if there's a general consensus that charms should be up for grabs, i'd keep an eye out for quests to sponsor (i don't have nearly enough time to make and run a quest of my own anymore). Obviously, if Chewie or Mur disagree with that, it won't happen. If neither of them has concerns and the vote is generally in favor of me using the charms, i'd encourage anyone who wants sponsoring to approach me. If your quest has positive responses, there might be a charm in it for the creator, too
  2. moved to offtopic I want to trade 5 kilos of fat for 5 kilos of muscle without the hassle of going to gym <.<
  3. Mod: There has been movement in the AL, and this thread is really hostile enough by now. If you could all dial it back one notch, that'd be great, and if you can't, i'll start hiding things.
  4. *voice from the off* You all probably realized that i turned into a silent reader a rather long while back, but 'taking it to the game' is nigh impossible currently. As of this moment (which used to be a good time to be online), there's 14 people logged in, 7 of them idle. You seriously can't expect people to wait around for the exact right people to play with and do nothing meanwhile, there needs to be some stuff people can do on their own while hanging around. Otherwise they won't hang around long enough to find any catch to push the story off. I admit that i wouldn't even know about the fact that the altar is closed if it weren't for this thread, but that's because i don't have time to even play by myself... *voice goes into the off again*
  5. Split off an interesting bit of discussion about the scene name "Pathway to Pips Palace" to ~Mod B
  6. I like that idea, i think that's the first drachorn that actually "flies" I'll leave this here a bit longer, see if you get more upvotes... remind me if i don't come back to you by friday It's got the details, it's a really nice concept, and i'm a fan of recycling, too... i think that's a 5-rating (on a scale from 2 to 8)
  7. Woohoo, thanks! Had a great time in germany, thanks
  8. I like that idea, if that's a technical option. Generally, i think that even when we say or write stupid things, it's better to apologize and actually take them back than to "rewind time". I agree with the people above about having a public edit history, too, but i think that's just another technical way to making this "redacting" thing impossible, while it doesn't add to the process of deciding whether we want to remove redacting or not.
  9. i don't know why, but it seems to work again. Did you do some wookie magic fix?
  10. How so, if they can't come to you and you can't come to them? That would require them to have an item collecting spot, and it would take away a lot of the 'mini-quest-layer' thing Mur mentioned over here
  11. Same issue, same version of opera Maybe we need to switch our habits of MD? Version: 49.0.2725.47 - Opera is up to date
  12. I think that must've been khalazdad, i got stuck at the howling gates and didn't realize that the right arrow had popped up... we talked a few minutes, and i was a little freaked out back then because i had literally no clue about any lore, and he was the most in-character-player ever to exist
  13. I'm certain that absolute democracy will under all circumstances lead to absolute idiocracy, given enough time. I firmly believe that all voting must be limited to certain topics, but not certain people. If we allowed any sort of interference about the question who gets to vote, the "loud" ideas will inevitably overrule the "quiet" ideas, and history shows that the loudest ideas have almost always been the worst. Taking away the ability to vote from certain groups would in turn lead to this group being ignored, since their voice stops to count, and thus it also stops to matter. You can freely take rights, choices and property from those people without ever getting bad results, on the contrary, you will get better results from the people who dislike the non-existant group. For the same reason, some things must be exempt from voting, call it basic human rights or civil rights or whatever you will. In fact, i think that it's much better for the continued existence of a society when you don't allow people to vote on laws at all, but only on representatives for some form of parliament every once in a while (3-5 years, imo), who are in turn personally accountable for the decisions they make while in power. The representative towards the outside should be elected by the parliament itself, as primus inter pares. This would allow people to lead in a meaningful way, and give the general population the option to actually influence the way they live. Funny part is, all of us always exempt a very large part of the relevant population from all decision by sticking to the notion of borders. Small wonder no country actually cares for 3rd world development or immigration rights, after all, those people can't cast a vote. So, in my opinion, all votes need to include the whole known population to be effective in making everyone's lives better, in all other cases it's always about making the life of some group better, usually at the expense of another group. TL,DR: I disagree with the question in itself, because i'm quite sure that there is no vote that should exempt anybody at all. If the voting is narrowed down so much that it only applies to a certain group, the vote is inherently bad.
  14. I've just noticed that the icons in the left bar don't light up anymore. Tested with fight log, ally chat and PM, none of them send a notification (turn yellow or ping).

  15. Has current VE / VP - that allows you to make quests where people can actually help or hinder one another through combat features Has achievement - specifically thinking about research depth here, but i could think of newbie quests to require burst burner or high end quests to require full glow Has ally / specific ally - what ivorak said, but with allies. You could create nice little gang wars, for example
