  1. So let's start the competition! As we have cases of ties for top position (the criteria for elimination being least wins > most loses > losing to all others performing similarly) for each individual "mini tournament", I've devised two system to keep track of performance: Counting wins - including shared All winners shares a point pool of 2520, divided to all winners (2520 being the least common multiple for 1 - 10, as we have 10 participants), Totaling to 25,200,000 points In addition, I've also logged every individual face-off to determine how well a strategy does i

    Rock, paper, scissors!

    Alright - time to write commentaries! Aia: Her strategy consist of 2 simple states, and a way to "seed" the encounter. Her first move is determined by a pseudo-random criteria (if she's facing a male or female opponent). She has 2 states: countering her opponent last move, or lose against it. Swaps every 3 turns depending on performance. Notably, she also checks for fixed patterns - and although it's not too useful against most strategies, it does work against Ledah's. However, it is also quite slow to adapt to match condition, and even if one of the two state cou

  6. The results are in! I'd like to thank everyone for their participation. Without further ado, here is the result I came up with: Allow me to explain the logic behind the scores. The winner is determined by total points. The "detail" column represents how well you explained your concept. Everyone starts from 10 points, the subtractions represent details I was missing (in most cases this was because you explained "how" a certain thing works, but not "why"). I also took into consideration how well you explained your concept relative to the other submissions. The "lo

For MD purposes I have utilised the meat of a winderwild and have dug up some wild growing vegetables from the community garden, left by former gardeners. The soft cheeses are from knator milk. Recipe Chicken Parmesan: 1 breast of winderwild Tbsp soft cheese 2 cloves garlic 1 small ball of mozzarella Black Pepper White pepper 1 red onion 1 tsp aromatic herbs (oregano) 1 tsp sumac 250g squashed bushies (passata) 1 winderwild egg

  9. There are two types of VE token AFAIK, one that increases maximum VE, and one granting VE in combat as extra health / (over) - heal at the start. Max VE affect regen amount and how much you can heal/store inside the creature before combat. These max VE boosted crit can be heal to precisely how much max VE they have after token - so you end up seeing things like 16000 / 10000 VE. Since maxVE token effect appears to be unchanging (not affected by vitality percentage) and in creature menu (you can heal them to above their base max VE to their tokened max VE) - I do believe this should be con

Unlike in real life, on this island you can not be harmed for real, and you have nothing to lose. You do have things to gain though if you interact with the others, but nothing is really mandatory to do. You role is 'public' from day one, and first impression about who you might be is your playername and the way you talk.

    Given the recent anniversary I have been but in somewhat of a more social mood. To that end it appears the my other half (the player) is reaching their anniversary and I would like to commission some music to celebrate this event.

  13. Its worth nothing! Worth is decided by those who value it and therefore by default it is entirely worthless! However the common exchange rate for gold to silver is one gold is worth 15 silver. It is important to note that some value silver less than this and may set their own exchange rate (typically in the past one gold has been worth up twenty silver as trading a lot of silver is time consuming). It is up to you and the person you are trading with to agree an exchange rate.

    As you can tell from... the Darvin quest, I am a bit obsessed with Advanced Aramors! So, as part of an experiment, I would love to craft Aramors that are capable of doing more, on their own. To that end, I'd love to start with making Aramors that can, for now, participate in simple games of Rock Paper Scissors! Your goal for this quest, would be to aid me in making such a creation. Specifically, I ask for you to design a strategy, one that is unambiguous and non randomized. Something that an Aramor can be programmed with! Your strategy will compete with others in a tournament.

This guy is very thorough with his explanations Although the submission is very long, it did not receive first place for that alone, as you will soon see: Memory stone possess the ability to store "thoughts" and specifically, spells. A compressed memory stone can store spells with less cast amount. Studying further interactions: A spell can't be stored with insufficient casts The cutoff point is 5 spells - any less casts and you'd need a compressed stone. The stone stores but a sma

  17. Try to understand what parts of your MD activity you no longer enjoy to do but you are still doing, and start by changing that. Set yourself only fixed hours and time intervals you wish to be around, and whatever happens simply don't come here outside those intervals. If you wish to quit entirely, close up lose ends, decide what people you still want to be in contact with and keep a different communication channel with them (like facebook, discord, email). I knew many people that at some point decided to leave, but a year or two later decided they want to return, so my advice i

For now, there are many, many ways to enter - and leave - Necrovion. Some of the common methods are: By having enough AP to just walk through the gate By offering a head to the gate By paying a price to the Death Guard - Lashtal. As part of the visitation, he can also helps you enter and navigate Necrovion As to when it is safe to enter Necrovion: Whenever you think you can evade Lashtal. Lingeri

    And this contest is officially closed! We thank the participants, but SoE shall withhold from acquiring any submissions, as their level is still entry-level. Mandalas are more or less foreign to the West (maybe foreign is not the word, since we've transformed them), so it's hard to get the aesthetics down; this is also the reason Poppi Chullo is the winner of this competition! However, they can quickly become an acquired taste, so because I hope they've sparked an interest, the 3 entries will be rewarded handsomely. Congratulations!

  27. Whether a creature is granted a win in combat is determined by the following factors, in the following order; provided the creature in question survives all rounds of combat: 1. By percentage, the side which ended combat with the greater percentage gain/smaller percentage loss of vitality will win. 2. If by 1, the percentage change is equal (often: 0%/0%, or 100%/100%) then the creatures on the player who initiated the attack will win. Since it is possible to win with 0%/0% change in vitality, then, it is possible to gain a win with 0% heat gain. There are, of course, many ways to do t

  30. One way to accomplish this is to trade your creature to a trusted friend and have them give it back, though your creature will lose some age that way. Another way to accomplish this, if you totemize a creature and then quickly untotemize it, your creature will keep all its wins, age, and other stuff but will return as a level 1 version of that creature, allowing you to rename it or even stop at an earlier level.

    what is a player DNA signature?

    The DNA signature was something experimental that was implemented to give account identity to a player. It could be gained through the now-defunct original story mode by choosing answers you feel to questions the first few days of creating an account upon logging in.

    How do I get more creature shards?

    Creature shards are obtained by sacrificing creatures. The amount of shards you get for a creature depends on its age, level, tokens, rarity, transfer count (lower is better), and the amount of shards currently invested in it. Creature shards can be used to add special abilities to creatures of the same type.

  36. There are 2 main ways of increasing your max Vital Energy (VE). You gain a little bit of extra max VE every day by logging in. Several creatures increase your max VE when sacrificed after reaching a certain level. There are also some items in the shop and some wishes in the WP shop that increase your max VE.

  37. This is not something you can do. You could petition the Admins to do it for you, and if you made an excellent case, in raw occasions (rarer than rare) they might be willing to do it for you. Some momentous in-game event that would explain the name-change might improve your odds of being heard, as compared to a casual whim. Of course there is nothing preventing you from using nicknames in chat, and asking to be addressed in a certain way by other players.

  38. (21 if American!). So, if giddy role play is not your thing, there are many "items" that are for more than just show. Using them will cause your chat speech to be slurred for several minutes. These items include beer, wine, liquors, but also something nasty called Grassan Ferment. Consuming such will cause them to disappear, though many have a specified number of uses. These alcoholic items can be picked up in special locations, fabricated in others, or traded for with other players.

  39. Very few, high level characters can create custom items. Generally, you must ask one of them for something specific, including a title and a description. Usually these would be given to you as a reward for some task you perform. This will vary tremendously with how much the item supports your role. If you have been acting consistently in a certain way that presupposes a special item, you are more likely be given that item, more easily.

  40. Most sets of armor do not include all the elements. Most are missing one element. The more you match, the bigger the bonus, but you'll likely have to use a mix of pieces from different sets. Pay attention to the actual things given by each element because sometimes the quality of a piece outweighs the effect of having a matched set.

  41. Items in the "roleplay" section of the shop are meant to inspire you to develop a character. They give both ideas and justification for the things that you describe your character doing in chat. For instance, saying you crash a zeppelin onto the Gazebo of Equilibrium is going to be dismissed by the other players as ridiculous, but if you say "*covers his head with a handkerchief.*" or "*tickles him with her blue parrot feather.*" these things will be believable, and accepted as real by the other players, ESPECIALLY if you actually have a handkerchief or feather in your inventory.

    What are heat veins?

    heat veins are a set of directions that point out of a scene in a specific direction, they require an item called a toy skateboard to move around on. they can be quite difficult to get as the item requires a lot of different items to make. there might be some fun surprises if you can somehow get your hands on one ,but they are not required to play the game and access most of the normal areas.

  45. Avatar Trivia Night - May 22, 2021. Two sessions: 1500 and 2200 server time. Location: the Gazebo of Equilibrium. Each session will consist of 3 Parts - guess by clues, identify hand copies, and guess the name of the fossil. The avys used in the two sessions will differ, so you may compete in both sessions if you choose. Part 0 - before the event, hand-draw one avatar of an active player, save it by the "Store-it-Now" system with enough lifetime to last until after the event, and send me the link. Shoot for quality that would allow it to be guessed in exactly 10 tries.

Replace with Drachorn Eggs if you have a death wish. Just not Elemental Eggs *glares at Fyrd* Butter, two sticks.
