    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    I'd like to refute your presumptuous claims a bit, I know you think highly of yourself dst but thinking doesn't make things true. Now you're here essentially arguing in favor of continuing the AL as it would be common sense while simultaneously telling people they can't do anything and I assume by upvotes agreeing with subverting the process of (patiently, I might add) returning the altars back to a functional state through the actions of people within the AL, so consistency out the window now. I'd suggest you either relearn about the MD community or learn to be less critical. Currently there is a pm group of people that had some very interesting input on the AL of late and while they might not be taking it ingame so much it is at least something. 70% of all statistics are made up, I don't see where the 95% came from, most players seem rather engaged when they say something and we see Nava at least trying to get some activity going among others like Aia who rallied for the Eclipse back. I'm sure some amount of bragging is always going to happen but I don't think it is a rampant issue, a lot of players have achieved good things through real effort and we still see a lot of it today, take the Gateway Island guardians as an example or the Necrovion Death Patrol. Now maybe we can get back on topic a bit, I'd still like to see more action rather than a complaint. In fact I have an idea that I am mulling over and might post soon.

    The Wrath of the Shades: Implications

    I activate two dark snake syndromes and attempt to attack with my raging flame sprite... I mean... >.> My 'defense' is a nice object I made a long while back. Also, I am willing to accept the shades, I want to help them unlike others it seems.

    Complaint on "One Man, Many voices" AL

    Currently I agree that the altars not being functional is a bit excessive as that takes away a large portion of the combat system, being unable to recruit further and sacrifice creatures that you've been training being the main issues. If any character needs to lose heat I have had a heat loss ritual set consistently for a while now, and I'm rather active so I can help you build a combo ritual if you want. On one side I see how it can be annoying without the altars, but on the other I see some emphasis on player interactions as far as heat loss goes and further for wanting players to band together to fix the altars. I'm conflicted as on an individual level worse things have happened to players in the name of roleplay, although I don't agree with detriments as opposed to benefits to emphasize activity/effort. I would be more open to the altars being broken if we were shown why or if it was mentioned in the Adventure Log in some way, as it hasn't been yet. I'm open to seeing where it goes and for that reason I don't agree on any punishment towards the organizers, I'm just glad we have more of the AL to read as it has been years since the last edition. ______ As for the community aspect, I have really yet to see any sort of ingame activity in regards to the AL.There was the eclipse where the old man showed up in some sort of support for Aia and that is nice but somewhat unrelated as the eclipse effort has been long awaited if rather renewed lately. The old man has also appeared around Necrovion I guess. I went into Necrovion myself and offered blood but I was on a side mission really, to help Fang Archbane, so my character (not that I roleplay much, he's kinda just me...) really has yet to see any sort of AL happenings as I was not around during the blood service. We had the PM conversation related to the AL, but I dislike confining these subjects to PMs which will remain hidden. I much prefer these topics to be discussed openly so we can all see and look back on them, hopefully learning something in the future. Much like these topics: ^Somewhat unrelated, and rather related: So if people want my (and others) thoughts and opinions I request you would make dedicated topics such as these so we can all input openly. Now I really must agree that we should bring these things ingame whenever possible, talk to eachother ingame and try to create events to make more things move forward. The forum is a good resource but shouldn't replace the game, and I suppose vice versa.

    The next step

    Ok, what exactly might we be stopping from getting "in" on a flat plane such as 2d. The water maybe if we allow for some curvature in the line drawn. In a 3d space you are more likely to stop some light rays from the everlasting sun from getting inside. Light has to travel though and we add the time dimension to allow for that making the "4D" reality we see. Shades are timeless aren't they? Since I have now tangentially been to the stone of twisted souls I wonder why the shades would bother to huddle around the stone, perhaps to get out of the light that is permeating all around them? The light we see as we wait for the moon to reappear to block it in an eclipse...

    Of men and Ants

    Well not your death, but consider that you won't have any copies of you running around passing on your genes. Often the older members of a species take on 'caretaker' roles for the babies while the younger fitter members go out and do that foraging stuff, to make the ant analogy this could be like the ants who protect the queen and care for the larvae but I think those are dedicated roles and not based upon age. Basically, you end up with a different role to suit the needs of the colony rather than what is the basic role (reproduction) although with the diverse society we live in that role can end up being anything really.

    Of men and Ants

    I've had an ant farm before and I think they do it mostly to clear up space. Most animals don't have an understanding of death save some rather intelligent ones like elephants who grieve for their dead. Obviously the pheromones are signalling to take an object to the burial spot, just in this case the object happens to be itself. Most animals role in life can be summed up to about two things, eat and reproduce. In a tribal species like ours the reproduction can serve to fulfill the eating aspect as the more children you have the more potential they will bring back some food for you. Nowadays though with agricultural related advancements it is not always necessary to reproduce as much as you can in order to ensure your species, or your own, survival. With overpopulation being a real threat set to occur at around 12 billion people there is some key questions we need to be asking ourselves before we get to that point. Being dead as an alive individual could be summed up to genetic death, the inability to reproduce. The chromosomes of your ancestors have been passing themselves along for millions/billions of years and as soon as you don't do that you are the first of your line not to.

    The next step

    Not gonna spoil it much because ppl might remember still, circles won't do much to a shade I assure you, they probably like them. Remember the adventure log bit where the cube appeared after the shade sentinel and the traveler reacted to eachother? Why is a pointy cube going to bother a shade? What would a circle do? Think 2d vs 3d

    The next step

    Ok I'll try to explain myself further this time, sometimes I like to be symbolic since I know I'm bad at interpreting symbolism... Maybe the shades don't have an aversion to water at all. Maybe they are like humans, and alcohol poisons them. Maybe the water surrounding Golemus had been turned to wine. Or maybe it is tears from a God who cried the ocean into being. If you read the adventure log it is highly advised not to enter the Golemian ocean, remember what happened to that one dude? (and that could explain some of those crazy beach parties) "The water is so dark ... it actualy looks like...oh no it could not be...how could it....but still it looks like ...the sky at night" Why do i say alcohol poisons them? Recently I saw a shade at the foundation talking to Aia del Mana and promptly gave it a bottle of distilled tears drink. It ceased to talk or move after that. also.. circles? to stop a shade? (what is this spongebob WATERBEARS xD) ); - 0; ;( - ;9 😢 :8 try two circles. There's two parts to the old man. Two celestial objects.....

    Stone tablet turned into stone when used

    uh, not that I ever tested those, but weren't they supposed to be so that users with less than 5 casts (considering 5 out of 8 as normal) of a spell could enchant their spell onto the tablet, the use would be the same as regular spell stones
  13. out of most if not all of these that I gathered for ledah (as in, ledah gathered some too) on mallos besides the 30 or so morlecid ended up stealing... It was definitely me that suggested to Ledah that we could hold the heads together, Ledah was sitting in deathwhisper gathering loyalty and it seemed like a good idea at the time. I suppose we didn't need to keep the extras, but idk, didn't seem such an issue to me at the time, although I was looking for mrf to give them back to him, he was very much offline, and I didn't want to abuse my heads powers ah yes, to answer your question pipstickz, no we didnt use all of these heads so in theory no I did not use those heads
