The Cauldron available for a public test!

Recommended Posts

You probably know already that i've been playing for the last few days with a new "toy", the Cauldron. Today I made it public, and I will post here the sameple recipe that is currently using. The device is not yet ready, and when it will be ready it will have so many uses that it will totally change gameplay :D

You can see it in work at Tranquil Plains, someone will be there to use it so you can see what it does, compared to the recipe loaded here.
This sample recipe is for cooking a random thing, but you could design recipes for a lot of things, from building machines to processing basic resources into advanced resources.

Currently the sample cauldron consumes no resources or items and you can load anything in it (that it requires) even if you don't have that item. In a few days this test is OVER and it will actualy cost those items to be functional

The recipe is easy to follow if you have a bit of imagination, the phrases used to trigger the events and the steps to finish a described process need to be explained in the main description. You dont need to use the exact same words as this is not funcioning based on copy paste. The device will actualy listen to what you say and approximate what you might mean based on the phrases defined in the recipe file. Try variations you will be amazed.

Build your own recipe, with things existing in MD already plus some resources you can invent yourself but they need to make sense as a resource in the context of the realm.

The phrases that trigger a step need all to be first person. YOU are TELLING the one holding the device what to do. you are not "role-playing" it as if you were doing it yourself.

There are so many questions yet all answers are in the file below or in the actions you will see the Cauldron can perform (tranquil plains).
This will end in a few days, maybe monday, so you don't have much time to figure it out.

Cooking recipes are the easiest to do because the example is like that, but the device could also support a lot a lot more.

You have freedom to name the device, it doesnt need to be a "Cauldron" , it could be anything else (in md spirit and suitable). (example, joker de-painting factory, to make color flasks out of colored jokers and turn them into b/w jokers...just an example that could work too)



The device uses HEAT plus several other materials to start working. The cauldron for example is set to use water and branches, of course. Other things like lets say a "factory", could use iron ore and coal, or whatever. These materials are needed to operate the device and should not be confused with the materials defined by the recipe/instructions set to use for creating a result product.


Be creative, use the chat to discuss this if you have questions, i wont have much time to tell you more.

I am building this sort of devices to finally create some things i always wanted like guilds that will be able to further process resources, items that will allow you to achieve/create things impossible till now, to support a new sort of resources and consumable items , etc. I am open to implement any recipe and device that makes PERFECT sense , that is not godmoded and has a fair balance of values, requirements vs output. Most important is they are suited to md. For example a cocktail mixer that will have as a recipe several creature related drinks, made with materials talked about or found in md at this moment, will have a huge success chance. But..if you start inventing things not backed up by current md style, if you dont care where the resources might come from, and so on, and you just go wild inventing stuff not fit got md..you will be just wasting your(and my) time.

If you are uncertain if a device is acceptable or not, ask me here on this topic and i will tell you if you should go on with it and prepare all those phrases and texts, or not.
It would be best to create things suitable to your role, then you have a higher chance to get it!

THIS IS A CONTEST. I WILL PROBABLY IMPLEMENT THE THINGS YOU CREATE IF THEY ARE AWESOME, OR AT LEAST REWARD YOU FOR CREATING THEM IF THEY ARE GREAT BUT YOU ARE NOT SUITED TO MASTER THEM YOURSELF.

For example if you come up with a great "Angien Tainter" it might get implemented but you will probably not get it, i will :D ..instead i might give you a suitable reward and/or the instructions file so anyone that wants to use the device will need you to do so.



These items will revolutionize the "values" in md, its time you use your brain to get some of the most valuable things ever for free.

Entries need to keep same format.
Limiting your device to existing resoruces and situations will give it a much better chance to be implemented than if you make up new resources. For a device with new resources to be implemented (and maybe awarded to you directly), the needed resources need to be implemented too, and assigned to a guild to collect , or to individuals (like the stones). If they make perfect sense i will do this fast but still not as fast as using what is already there.
Devices that support long time estabished roles will have priority.

There is no limit how many items i will accept, but there is a time limit when i will say stop-enough and start adding only my items for guilds and such..so there is no time to waste.

More info:
Potential resources that will be acceptable (because i am planning to add them for some time):
bilogical materials like leather, horns, hair, etc, from existing creatures only
metals or metal as a general resource
herbs, in detail or in general
unusual but very md style things like color in a bottle, or get inspired from things like the memory stone and current resources :)
Understanding what i mean by md spirit/style is obviously essential to create a suitable item. Amaze me.

My entry in Granos' contest: The Quadrant Amalgamation Device. [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9988-s0s-design-quest-01/page__view__findpost__p__88320"]Here's a link[/url]

The possibilities of resources that can be combined are limited only by the number of things that are fluid enough to flow through the chambers. Used to power the device are memory stones (or heat stones, if I understand what they do correctly, I haven't tried) and heat, as well as any fluid, or maybe a solid that is malleable enough to squish through a small tunnel, but the thicker it is, the better (for example water would not work so well, but Darigan's brain might :D)

I'm in ramblin' mode >>

Edit: Oh, I see, recipes, I will make some pronto. Actually probably when I really can. Anyways

I'm entirely aware that this might be impossible or might require some further steps and require more items or knowledge then I have at the moment but I'll throw it out here because I believe at least in theory it is plausible.

While testing out the Cauldron, we found out that the "say a random number" could be a lot of fun.

This is not really a cauldron idea but...

Maybe you could make some working dice?

-The one holding the Dice says "Let's play" or something like that.
-Players bet a silver (they go 'in' the dice, as 'in the cauldron')
-Everyone says a number (Maybe it's possible to make it so that the Dice knows who said what)
-Roll the dice
-The dice automatically (?) gives the silver to the one who won.

People maybe can bet on the same numbers, so the silver get's split.
The random numbers would have a limit to 6 then, or more depending on how many sides it has.


[b]MUR: it could work if the score is kept by players and winner decided manually based on the progress. The device can generate the numbers. You can try a "recipe" , instruction set, based on this idea, with major differences from the cauldron current use. For a perfectly integrated gambling device , it will need a custom item. Still possible at some point in the near future after cauldron is functional and tested, but not now as a recipe. Anyway try it, might be used as base for the later test.[/b]

This is my first entry, an attempt on a raw material to semi-processed material. Recipe uses both existing and new resources .
Materials are (updated post-Mur comment):
[spoiler]Red Herb,
Aromatic Herbs,
Tea Leaves,
Toxic Plants,
Water (existing)
Mineral Water (existing)
Note: I contemplated using heat stones for the heating process, but figured that it would take too many resources for a semi-processed material, not a finished product.[/spoiler]

Device is (new):
[spoiler]Lab mortars and pestles
Several equipment used to make powders and mixtures in a lab. A small mark on them indicate they are manufactured in Golemus.[/spoiler]

The recipe example is below. It's formatted so it could be replicated into several different recipes by simply changing the item name and the amount/type of herbs required. My plan is so the semi-processed material can be used further for other recipes producing final products (I have mostly alchemy in mind for these).

I am working on recipes for a gristmill (Kafuuka will be pleased) and a sawmill.

One of the recipes for the sawmill will be cutting planks out of the raw lumber resource. I know that planks previously had wood type in their name, but does the lumber resource come in different species? It doesn't matter right now, because we could just substitute the species names into the initial recipe, but it is something to consider.

Also, is there a limit (min or max) to the steps and ingredients for a recipe?

First of all you need to prepare brick forms from prime wood.
Pay atttention to any traces of insetcts or sawdust as they may make your forms too weak to withstand heat and pressure.

It should be done slowly enough so that all over content is uniformly heated. It should take about 30 minutes.
The mass should be liquid by then. Keep the oven at 1200 Celcius degrees.
All sand impurities should go to the top and may be collected there.
Do it as long as there is no longer anything floating on the surface. The oven content should be transparent by now.
Add some silver coins as one of their major component will make glass much stronger, and Movelock Stone to speed up the cooling process.
Mix the glass well and heat it for another 20 minutes. Let it cool down controlling its viscosity.

The glassblowing process is very simple in theory but minor carelessness may result in massacre.
Before you begin the actual process you need to heat some glass beyond melting - it should be half solid.
Then you need to select a grasan - strong one, preferably Havourer, but not too dangeours at the same time.
They are trustful beasts so you should not have problems to feed it with Attacklock Stone
and water it with freshly extracted Toxicodendrite solution.
Within 4 minutes grasan should be unresponsive - but still with formiddable strength.
Ask it to pick the the glass brick and blow continuously into it downwards, rotating, keeping opening at grasan's mouth the right size.
When bottle is the right size ask grasan to put it down and repeat blowing with another brick.
Repeat the sequence at most 10 times - with more bottles Attacklock and Toxicodendrite may wear out too soon.
After finishing your 10th bottle kill the grasan. It is too badly burnt to be of any more use anyway. Let your glasses cool down.";

As it is, it seems like everyone uses the same equipment...
I'm thinking about making something that will enchant weapons to have different possible properties, and enhance different skills.

examples-

Walking stick (briskness, attack)
Battle Axe (attack, woodcutting)
Wand (power, luck)

or more complex like-

Lollipop of awe *requires a dead pimped grasan* (luck, trade sense, regeneration, initiative)

*Edit: I was thinking, and this probably wont work. Weapons need to be bought with VP. Oh well...

Here are my ideas for items that can be made through a recipe. Not exactly sure if they are appropriate, so I will wait for a go-ahead before writing the dialogues.

[u]Drops Tea[/u]
A tea that grants 5-10mins protection from spells. This idea is based on the 'Jade Teardrops' item I have which is described as a plant which leaves you can brew tea from and the said tea gives protection to the drinker.

Ingredients: Teardrop Leaf, Mineral Water, Raindrops


[u]Silly Send Stone[/u]
A stone that holds a spell which sends the target to a random place in the realm.(Probably with the exception of certain 'restricted' scenes.) Made from imbuing multiple memory stones with 'teleport' spells.

Materials: Sendtogazeebo Stone, Sendtolighthouse Stone, Teleport_papercabin Stone, Traveltobob Stone


[b]MUR: Try them both[/b]

Newest idea, I haven't figured out all the needed materials yet, but here goes.

A heat powered furnace capable of creating inventory items-weapons, armors and such that would come with stat boosts and losses for whomever is holding the item in their inventory.

A metal cane that increases briskness but would decrease initiative for instance.

[b]I will give a try to all recipes (that make sense in md) posted in the format i requested ! [/b](The php array thing). Its not THAT hard to edit , all you need to do is to keep the right quotes and brackets where needed. I will fix mistakes ofc, but if you post the text in list format or simple text i will ignore it, I wont be writing the recipe for you based on fairytales.

the will be ran in a public test next week.

[color="#FF0000"]PLEASE HIDE the majority or all of lines in the "$instr['step_lines'] " array.[/color] Post your recipe on this topic but send the full version to me via forum pm.

Name the pm like this: [color="#FF0000"]RECIPE - your player ID - recipe name in full (as named in the first value of the array)[/color]

i hope all its clear.

Like i said i will test all recipes presented in this way, because its easy to do it and will be fun. If you dont present it like that however, they wont even have a chance. After the test, i will pic the recipes i consider most interesting and well done and start on building the requirements for them to actualy work. Many good ideas will get wasted if you just mention them here without actualy preparing a "recipe" for them too.

I will edit your posts and say if its acceptable or not to start making a recipe file for the suggested idea, but if you think it is, dont wait for my confirmation..i might not answer to all questions (dont get upset)

Rather hard to test when people get kidnapped to GG and used as grist for the mill. Being stuck in GG is rather de-motivating to keep on trying. I was one of many that got this treatment.

1 Please comment (resources drafted, to be reconsidered and readjusted if idea approved):
2 What is the contest deadline? I have some concepts but no time until early next week to work on script...
3 New base resources: coal iron (collected with cauldron-make items so some would have to be given away to start the circle); another option - ore as resource diggable and random harvest of coal or iron (with some probability, may also dig about useless rock with high probability)
LE: coal and iron harvesting tool should be probably controlled to keep consistent with other resurces (expect herbs that may be free to all as walk and pick)

[log="too long to display"]
[b]1.[/b] ->> clarification and slight modification of item 1 rejected above to address potential abusability
pathfinder (AP booster)
multi-usable device for explorers, with high cost per use (principles permanent penalty) and not too short cooldown time, fighting abilities strongly suppressed some time after each use
cooldown: 1h ('accelerated' status after each use that prevents multiuse... or some other solution to that effect)
each use consumes (usable only if user can 'pay' - cannot use if not enough heat/ principles):
-4000 heat
-250 of random principle ([b]permanent effect[/b]; great extorsion)
-explorer's boost: 10 minutes 100% weaken (all stats set to 0)
bonus: 200AP
resources:
-Rustgold Drachorn blood (Rusty sacrifice - Rusty lvl2+, must be able to give ID as some ppl carry multiple Rusties and not each of them they would like to sac)
-2 spicy pickles
-10 water
-2 glass (->or sand with other materials slight change if glass not accepted)
-8 branches

[b]7.[/b] quality leather
processed resource, to be used in items of clothing etc

One of the few steps I was thinking to use to Taint an Angien through a ritual, too many to go through to actually write the Angien one, but would be mostly the same as Binding a Soul, just requiring more time to collect supplies, larger and larger amounts.
Also, is it possible to get a read on principles before starting it? Example: This one would require 1000 elemental and other principles while Tainting an angien would require 4000 in all of the principles.

Tainted Angien requirements:
5 black tainted candles (self made)
Large bottle of blood ink (self made)
mastery of all principles
Souls representing the 4 main land and a fifth using 5 gold coins, representing desire.
Days of concentrating? :3

Tools needed:
Necromancer set
Book of the dead
Notes on how to bind a soul

Other ideas:
Special ink made of knator blood and grasan fat,
Candles made of the same as the ink

Side note about $instr['step_lines'] = array( being empty, would rather know if this is a good idea or bad one before actually doing this part.

cleaned, having an unneeded element . Next sprinkle the sand in a full circle around the creature,

placing 5 heat stones around the circle. Gather representation of the 5 elements and place one at

each end of the stone with a blank stone near the fifth element. Pour the toxic vial onto the

creature. Now activate all 5 stones, starting with the stone near the trapped soul and sprinkle sand

towards the fire representation, to air, water, earth and back to the soul. Recite from the book of the

dead for the next hour. Now meditate for a full 24 hours. Open your eyes and gather the stone.

As a gardener, Rumi would have many uses for the cauldron for cooking food and medicine from plants harvested from the garden. I thought, however, that it might be fun to craft something a little different during this practice period with the cauldron.

Some of you have occasionally walked by the Meeting of the Roads and found Rumi not in meditation on the hillside, but down in the middle of the road, kicking around a footbag (in what he calls "a game of prayer"). [i]Do you want to play a game?[/i] ;) I have been wanting an inventory footbag and this seems like a great way to make one.

This is a simple craft recipe, which requires few ingredients and a number of steps.

[b]Required tools[/b]
Leather Needle
Knife

[b]Required resources[/b]
Young knator leather (grasan leather might make a better suede, but I'm more partial to knators)
Sand
Thread

(alternatively, the leather needle, knife, and thread could simply be a 'leather sewing kit' tool, and sand and leather would be the two ingredients)

I am a little confused regarding "device" and $item['name']. Do these refer to the cauldron itself? I'm not sure what you would call a device or machine in which you sew together a craft. Certainly not a cauldron. Maybe a sewing circle? Stitch 'n' Bitch?

$instr['description'] = "
This is a simple craft recipe for a young knator suede footbag, filled with sand. This particular design creates a truncated icosahedron footbag.
You will need to collect the leather of a deceased young knator and a bit of sand. You will also need a leather sewing kit.
First, cut the knator leather into 20 equilateral hexagons and 12 equilateral pentagons, all with the same side length.
Line up the pieces in a pattern. Each pentagon should be surrounded by hexagons and each hexagon should border three pentagons and three hexagons.
Begin sewing the pieces together with seams through the back sides of the suede.
If you correctly follow the pattern, the result should look more and more like a sphere with each seam.
When you come to the last seam, sew half the stitches and stop.
Pull the entire bag inside out through the hole so the seamless suede face is exposed on all sides. Add the sand to the bag.
Complete the seam with a blind stitch and a strong knot, and adjust tension until the seam disappears completely.
