  7. The past couple of days, Firefox hasn't loaded md for me. The map on the login page hasn't showed up and if I log in anyway, none of the images appear on the page and errors show up.   Login view: http://storenow.net/my/?f=9b62fec782f1df41a6b3994f1be0f37d In game view: http://storenow.net/my/?f=985e67b6fc0982014da49af7e403d17d   At first I thought it was me so I spent time cleaning and updating my computer but even installing flash again hasn't helped on Firefox though I can login and see stuff on Chrome  
  8. The drinks I grabbed before sleeping have either not disappeared or disappeared early. I got 3 alcohols from the pub: a shot of absinthe (1 use, id 15949), a distilled grasan ferment (1 use, id 15945), and a beer stein (3 uses, didn't know the id).   I used the shot of absinthe and it has reappeared in my inventory with no shown number of uses left. Kiley used the distilled grasan ferment which returned to me after use, then I shared it with Aethon and we saw that it also doesn't show how many uses it has left. I realized after waking up that it shouldn't have returned since it only has 1 max use (I had thought it had multiple uses). Assira used the beer stein and instead of returning to me with 2 uses left, it disappeared.
  9. Question 4: My colleague Mrs Pedlington raises a fine question, therefore I ask why are they called aramours and not armors? - Mr Rubico from the 'Institute of old stuff we aren't sure wasn't just rubbish'   Mr Rubico, I would like to point out a fairly significant difference between aramors and armors that you may have missed. Armors are those static pieces used mostly for decoration or as very heavy overcoats. Those just stand around waiting for dust and polish. Aramors are in a completely different bag. They can move on their own, they fight, they have vim! And for their enthusiasm, they also won the rights for a whole extra syllable!   Hope this helps, Amber
  10. Question 3: Why aren't Drachorns just called Dragons? - Mrs Pedlington of the 'possible creatures that may have existed but we aren't quite sure if everything wasn't just a lizard at one point society'   Drachorns were supposed to be dragons but the person who was in charge of keeping track of history did so on a really old typewriter. They couldn't find the lowercase g key so they tried to make the shape with c and h. It would have worked if they had figured out how to flip the paper over before typing. They also accidentally hit the lowercase r  key since it looked like the n when chicken pecking really quickly and didn't want to strike out the whole word of their efforts. The person who first read the description didn't want to look like a fool so they just called them drachorns and everyone since has followed the trend.   Basically, they're the same but are called differently because of laziness, typos, and bandwagoning.
  11. Poison patch Sketch: http://storenow.net/my/?f=810c4f323d804d85c53f73a458581e1c Model: http://storenow.net/my/?f=317001211616313c113cc676f5fe9b5f   I recommend wearing gloves and a surgical mask until after the making part is over.   Liquid: In a sealable container mix about 4-6 tablespoons of ground nutmeg with a cup of boiling water, close it, and let that infuse for a day. Collect a matching amount of “milk” from the stalks of oleander and repeat the process used for nutmeg. Make sure not to ingest any or get it on your hands and that you wash very well after collecting since these are fairly large quantities of these substances and you don’t want the effects you intend for others. After the waters are infused, cook them down a few times to get the concentrations up. You want the mixture to be very potent to ensure you get the effects of both plants quickly. Mix the concentrated infusions together, maybe add some calamine lotion (if you’re trying to not have the application be noticed), and keep the mix sealed until ready to apply to the patch.   Delivery patch: You start by peeling the thin skin off an onion. You will want enough to be shaped along your hand. Soak this in water so it doesn’t smell particularly like onion and doesn’t sting later if you put it on your skin or near your face. In the mean time, melt and mix candle wax to the approximate color of your skin. You will need to find some plant with very small needles or barbs as well. I went with nettles but very fine needled thistle or cactus might work. The idea is that the needles will be able to stick in and hold the weapon onto the skin for a while and possibly cause either numbing or itching effects. Peel off some skin with the needles attached or otherwise remove individual barbs (if they do not come off with the plant skin). Lay your swatch of onion skin out on a curved surface and apply a thin layer of wax over it. Let this solidify slightly before placing the needles in rows such that the barbs stand up in multiple, opposing directions. Cover the base of the needles with another very thin layer of wax if you can and let the patch solidify. Wear this patch before you go off to meet the victim. When you are ready, apply some of the liquid to the needles and go off to meet the intended.   How it works: Arrange for a situation where you shake hands or pat the victim on the back. Shaking hands has the advantage of you being able to keep shaking the hand (if somewhat awkwardly) and applying enough pressure to hurt just enough to cover up the possible sting of the needles and for the liquid to get under the skin but may keep you close when the victim discovers the patch in their skin. Placement on the back or neck will be harder to visually notice but may take longer for the liquid to work. Congratulations after having a successful meeting or finishing a quest tends to be unsuspecting times of contact. Or in this case, sneaking into Azull’s favorite hidey hole and poking him while he sleeps. We’re going to pick on Azull because he’s fairly humanoid, has skin, doesn’t have extra blood pumping organs, and doesn’t have any particular resistances to poison or death (that I know of) unlike others in his land.   When we apply the patch to Azull’s skin, the alternating barbs will pierce through the skin and hang on since they are going in multiple directions. This allows the needles to hang in and be useful even if the patch is found shortly after application. After the initial contact, I advise walking elsewhere. Preferably to a nearby place with drinks and a splash shield so you’ll be comfy when watching the effects. The myristicin in the nutmeg will cause hallucinations (giving Necrovion another mad king!) and possibly other fun effects like vomiting and problems with vision and balance. If the needles have a slight numbing effect (on their own or with help of a little lotion), haven’t caused the skin to become inflamed, and haven’t been noticed during placement then poor Azull (or whoever your choice is) will not have any idea why they are seeing strange things. If we manage to tag Azull in his lair and he somehow sleeps through it, we can count on extra time for the hallucinogenic aspect of the nutmeg extract to kick in and have a truly mad king upon wake up. The nutmeg may also cause him to vomit so he’ll be crazy and be avoided in fear of projectile spew.  If he’s been asleep long enough, he’ll wake up crazy with a serious reversal of fortune (lots of vomiting) from the nutmeg and oleander as well as heart problems and seizures or a coma! If you tag him while he’s awake, you may need to find your own hidey hole until the effects kick in and you can take advantage of his hallucinations to hide in front of his face until he collapses from the other effects.
  12. I tried to make the held orb on the creatures page a few times out of some candles, the standing one wasn't quite able to stand without help   http://storenow.net/my/?f=2a7366d3a7fbb29b79bde848b7ce120c

    Random survey

    Escape, sometimes for a story. A splash of competition sometimes or to just do crazy stuff with friends. A way to tune in or out of whatever is going on in busy real life and get my mood back onto something I can work with.   Games give me a way to be distracted and in the generally comfy, not productive zone but with thinking unlike the also comfy nonthinking distraction I find when I practice whittling.
  14. If the birthday is front loaded (ie first and second day) with races/clicky quests the way it tends to be, people doing those should be enough to keep down the viscosity for a few days after that. If other big ones take place every say, 3-4 days, we should be able to keep viscosity down for those who want low viscosity for their events.   Otherwise, since this is a long stretch of birthday, if the low viscosity ones don't quickly follow the other ones it makes sense that the people running quests that day could ask.
  15. We're older! =D   Many thanks people for birthday wishes! Now on to drinks and gambling for all this superstition today!
