  1. Mur wants all content to be available for free, but he doesn't mind if it takes a bit longer, which why you can get credits if you vote. To need silver to get armor, shouldn't be an objection in itself, it's the fact that everyone will end up with the same armor at the end, which is the problem. It's better to create sets of armor that boost certain stuff, or certain tactics, such as; Armor that helps you freeze, or anti freeze stuff. Armor that nullifies part of the enemy's creature boost/aura boost or token power. Armor that multiplies your creatures stats (100% vit influence included), instead of your own power. (actually this one doesn't really.. make much of a difference from our own sets of armor) Armor that actually boosts a certain type of creature, in the way that creature boost does. Sun God armor, creature boosts... let's say fire elemental. And instead of just increasing the amount of VE it can steal, it also gives it scorch damage, or a burning initiative (extra normal damage, or higher initiative) What about turning the medusa armor into a water daimon/freeze booster? It'd make sense to me, medusa petrifies her enemies, and it looks like a water daimon What about armor, only for certain land citizens? It gives boosts to creatures from that land (GG shouldn't get any, the drach is already overpowered ¬_¬) LR (medusa?) armor boosts scout, knator and water daimon power. MB (sun god?) armor boosts fire elemental, heretic (<-- or not.. it'd already has creature boost..) What about armor (I'm not done yet) that is cursed, it takes away 50% attack stats and 50% initiative, but lets you fight with a summoned army, or a creatureboost for a strong creature, that has none yet. Or gives you access to certain areas? Or even changes your own limitations. A cursed armor that gives you 5% or 10% extra max ap, I know a lot of you want that. (hehe, even 10% max ap more is still 99 for neutrals), or even an armor that downplays /yet untouched/ game limitations! We all read about the berserker's way, about the berserker's who did stuff (). What about a berserker armor, that increases your own initiative by 15%, attack by 50%, but it also decreases your defence by 100%. That may not sound great, but if you allow the berserker to attack people every 4, or even 3 minutes, and alliance members every 10, or even 5, I bet you can get a lot of people who will have to go for a new strategy. Imagine the new tactical play here. We already have so many armor and weapons, it would be useless to get more armor that does the same. [size="7"][b]C'mon be creative! Don't just think about what would be cool, think about what would change the game, what would not only be cool, but increase playability! WHY AM I TYPING THIS IN CAPS? MADNESS?! THIS ISN'T SPAAAAAAAM IS MUR LOOKING YET?[/b][/size] , also, powerful armor, or armor that changes the game itself, such as that berserker armor, should perhaps be limited for to mp5, so that the newbies won't be confused. **edit** GG should get bunny armor, it increases awesomeness by 1×10^googolplex% (which, unsurprisingly, still doesn't make anyone else more awesome than me, even when I am not wearing the armor) and increases all stats of the player, and of all it's creatures by 1×10^googolplex%. On a different note, only a suave player, with an awesome name, such as Metal Bunny, get to buy it.

    [quote name='Firsanthalas' date='11 June 2010 - 03:41 AM' timestamp='1276249263' post='61624'] Sparrhawk. I am not accusing you of planning anything in secret. I am simply saying that it was never brought to my attention before being made public. You say that Knator Commander was not respected, yet it seems ok for that trend to continue? Announcing any guild, governmental or otherwise while using the name of a land gives the impression that it is official or endorsed. [/quote] So ask for it to be renamed. [quote name='Firsanthalas' date='11 June 2010 - 03:41 AM' timestamp='1276249263' post='61624'] On a final note about guilds. Only Mur can setup a guild. We can setup a group in the hopes that it will be recognised as a guild in time. But ultimately that power rests with Mur. So anyone declaring guilds could result in Mur's wrath. [/quote] So, you're saying using words like "guild" and "alliance" in certain context makes Mur angry? Besides, Princ never requested, or expected, the Rangers to be an official alliance/guild, as you can see in the first post. [quote name='Firsanthalas' date='11 June 2010 - 03:41 AM' timestamp='1276249263' post='61624'] I make my views very clear to them and they let me know too. Suddenly announcing guilds is not transparency is it? And it is disrespectful to the king. [/quote] Do you really think Princ would do this to disrespect you? Nobody meant to disrespect you, I'm sure. Hey, I could be wrong, but what's the point of putting together a plan for a bunch of groups intended to support something, just to insult somebody? Especially somebody with power over you. [quote name='Firsanthalas' date='11 June 2010 - 03:41 AM' timestamp='1276249263' post='61624'] One of the issues that has plagued Loreroot is this sense that people can do as they please with no consideration for the impact it may have on their fellow citizens, MD in general and Mur even. [/quote] Yes, that's generally how the world goes. Some people seem to care, some people seem not to care. Loreroot is not the only place with such problems. They may be more noticeable, just because Loreroot citizens all personally involve themselves in all of the problems that they have, generally. (Disclaimer: I may be wrong about stuff, this is just based on observations I've made, or thoughts I've thunk.)

    Call it a group, call it a guild, call it a gathering, call it a fairy circle, put any spin on it you like. You can compare to anything you please but at the end of the day it doesnt change the fact that you have ignored the point in everything I have said. You have never made it clear what a citizen can and cannot do. This whole situation is proof that this has not been made clear. There has been no communication on this. You can say all you want, I am at fault and I will accept that. I accept that if you had been told first this might not have happened. But at the same time it would not have happened if I knew I could not do it. And the fact remains that no common people know what is planned in LR. I would like to know and I can guarantee if you ask the general population if they want to know you will get the majority saying yes. I know about the Rhaegar issue as he is my friend and we talk, everyone else knows as it has been aired out in public numerous times. That is not leadership transperency. I have said everything objectively but none of it has sunk in. I don't understand why you refuse to admit any fault. There are two kinds of kings. The first surrounds himself with "yes men" who will glorify his every action. They turn even his passing of gas into an epic sonnet. The second seeks council from those who are not afraid of the king, from those who will speak their honest truth. Those who will tell their king its not polite to gas their chambers with such a noxious odour. Fear does not breed loyal citizens.

    Uhm... this game is endless. When i can make my creature stronger by using it, and i actually want to have that creature stronger, i'll be at 10k wins in no time. My angiens went to 3800 wins in 200 days, it's absolutely no problem to put any insane ammount of wins on a creature if you want to. Back in the times, i sacced a 10k win archer on my 350th day. Granted, t'was one of the creatures i used in literally every fight since day 1, but you get the point, if people feel like giving that crit 20k wins, they can. Not even to speak of the unreasonable ammount you can add with tokens.

  14. well that is the problem, I wanted for things to work. If Firsanthalas isn't listening then I have to make him listen somehow. Pardon me for not being a worshiper of democracy not to dare to question it's functioning. I'm banished, so I don't have anything to end here, I am tho glad that my banishment made some Lorerootians asking for the ideas/basis of projects/ I made (I guess if I'm not there to make them, they seem much more attractive to you all) edit: about you all calling this democracy. for this to be democracy, votes need to be held annually with [u]Lorerootians[/u] voting [u]anonymously[/u]. If it is not anonymous, the whole point of democracy falls into the water. what if you have in USA a president for permanent, well till someone makes a majority without voting, with president knowing who will NOT vote for him? what would you expect that president will do (considering nobody is a perfect when it comes to honor)

  16. Since when does majority makes something right? I said that I don't need to compare him with other kings - other lands have their own issues or not to take care of, it is up to one of their members to voice something is wrong if it is. The fact that I think Loreroot could have been functioning better or that I want Firs to carry out what he said he will do doesn't need to be brought down just cause some else ruler (insert a proper name) is doing a much worse job. Cause that has nothing to do with us.

  32. [size=5][u][b]Photoshop CS3[/b][/u][/size] Before I begin, I would like to say that I have Photoshop CS3, every Photoshop version is somewhat different, but versions CS1 and CS2 may be similar to CS3. I am not certain of this. Not everyone will do this process the same as I do and not everyone has Photoshop. There are most likely simpler ways to edit the avatars, but this is simply the method I tend to use. [u]First: Cropping/Cutting[/u] When you open your picture, cut away a lot of the white space by cropping the main part of the picture. I do not use the crop tool usually, but instead I use the rectangular marquee tool. It works a bit easier and gives you some room to fix mistakes if you mess up. [u]Second:[/u] Cut and paste the selected canvas into a new area. [u]Third: Adjusting/Lightening and Darkening - etc.[/u] Then go to 'Image' and 'Adjustments'. You can adjust the image by either tinting the black space using the 'color balance' tool, or use levels to lighten/darken the image with the 'Levels' option. This helps with clarity when you resize. [u]Fourth: Greyscale[/u] Depending on how you have adjusted the image with color balance and 'levels', you can choose to use the greyscale option in the 'Image --> Mode --> Greyscale' tab. This will flatten the image. [u]Fifth: Remove flaws[/u] Now because I am picky, I usually go through using the eraser tool and remove any little splotches in the white area that may have come off with the graphite, but the white area will be removed soon anyway. [u]Sixth: Resizing[/u] Now you will need to revisit the 'Image' tab once more and go to 'Image size'. Be certain that the 'Constrain Proportions' option is enabled, otherwise it may warp the image. I normally start with the 'height' first as the width will automatically adjust when you enter the proper number. (In this case 160x100. But depending on how the image is cut, it will resize without warping it, thus it might leave it a bit off of the proper size.) [u]Seventh: Adjusting the Size[/u] Continue to remove as much of the white space as you can with either the 'cropping' tool or the 'rectangular marquee' tool. Be certain to open in a new window, adjusting the size of the new window to 160x100. Make sure that you set the 'Background Contents' to 'Transparent' when you make the new window. When you paste your picture, if the image is still not quite fitting in the window, go to the 'Edit' tab and choose 'Transform --> Scale'. You will see that the area is able to be manually adjusted, to keep the image shape, hold down the shift key as you adjust. [u]Eighth: Removing the White Space.[/u] BE CERTAIN THAT THE BACKGROUND LAYER IS REMOVED! If it is not removed, the image will not show up as transparent. Now that the image is in the center of the resized space, use the 'Magic Wand' tool to remove a lot, if not most of the outer white space. If you have shaded the image heavily, I would not suggest using the magic wand tool in the inner white space of the picture as it can take away a lot of the quality. Instead I would suggest upscaling the image to 300-600% (using the scaling area in the lower left hand corner) and manually removing the white space with the 'Lasso' tool and the 'Eraser' tool. [u]Ninth: Adding the MD Symbol[/u] Use the type tool and select a simple, clear font at around 2-10pts. depending on which font you use. I would suggest Arial, Tahoma, Comic Sans..etc. [u]Tenth: Saving as a Transparent GIF[/u] Go to 'File --> Save for Web & Devices' be certain to select the 'GIF' option. You can give it a dither but I've found that this tends to make the image look a bit scratchy, you can also click 'Interlaced' though I'm not entirely certain what that does. Sorry folks, that tiny bit I haven't figured out yet, but it doesn't appear to harm the image so, eh- I click it anyway. And last, hit 'Save' and name it. Finally, you are ready to upload the avatar. Tips:[list] [*]I would suggest keeping the image in the MD style, if you use too much shading the picture will look somewhat flat and be difficult to edit. The shading may come out looking strange and not give the desired effect as well, so I would stick to light shading or 'sketching' when making these avatars. [/list][list] [*]If you have a tablet, use it as much as possible, it makes this whole thing ten times easier. [/list][list] [*]You can darken/lighten in several ways in photoshop, there is also a tool called the 'Burn' tool that helps with darkening certain areas. So if you want some shading to stand out more while others you want to 'fade', darken certain areas with this. It will give your avatar a polished look. [/list][list] [*]Do not make the image too dark, if it is too dark it will look too contrasted against the textured background of MD. You can lighten the image by using 'Image --> Adjustments --> Levels or Brightness/Contrast'. Both work equally well. [/list] Again, not everyone will do this process as I do, and there are probably simpler ways.. but I do hope this helps for those of you who decide to go to photoshop.com and download the free trial. Not sure if it will help with the GIMP program that Yrthilian had suggested, I have never used that particular program before. If you know of easier ways to do this, please post them below.

    New Armor/gear

    When first MD started there was no money (silver and gold coins). The only way to buy gear was all about VP VE and action points. Now it all changed there is money and its not easy to get it like VP that gets regenerated every certain amount of time. I want to suggest new ability to buy Armor and gear with silver and gold coins from shops. Right now everyone got same armor set and its very easy to buy it from the shop for almost no price (just Value Points) - most of mp5 got it! Isn't it too boring that everyone got same kind of set?? Also I want to point that the money in MD (silver and gold coins) are much less valuable then they were before and they value decrease daily: I remember when you could buy Drach for 60-70 silver - now no one wish to sell it even for 160 silver! With this way coins amount in MD will decrease drastically and bring back the value of money. New kind of sets (epic) the only one that can be bought with real MD money and not silly requirements will be released - bring more interest to the game!

    This creature got same ability as the angien just different way to increase its strength. Angien get it's strength from VE, and this creature from won battles. It doesn't meter how many wins and strength will have ritual if you can't use it.(creature got frozen) Even if certain ritual will do more damage then Rusties rit for example: Rustries got very high chance to freeze the creature with high damage and then finish it with one hit. So Rusties rit will be always over powered rit then angiens or other creatures with high damage.

    Also its possible to make it 1/10 of each win gained. (but disagree with it) Its just idea I didn't say that it should be implemented. To make it over powered you need 10,000 wins on each creature! And to buy 5 Tokened Spartans from the shop! Also it will still do 60k damage and not 200k as Rusty rit that can freeze as well! not talking about antifreeze and level scare.

    Sparrhawk, The issue is not the idea, it never was. The idea has merit. The issue was the manner in which it was simply declared as being official and the reaction afterwards. They say that the road to hell is paved with the best intentions. For starters, if a guild or group is supposed to be somehow representative of a land, then it must go through a process whereby others can see it and give their opinions. If you wish to build a house or start a company, there are things you have to do. Planning permission, registering, patent checks etc etc. You cannot work on something and then simply decide that it is official. It doesn't work that way. Take the COE. The COE did not simply exist officially one day because one or two people decided it was a good idea. (I know this is an extreme example and not entirely the same, but you get the idea). There is a tendency for people to get an idea and want to push it through quickly without really considering the consequences. Furthermore, if people are running around working on projects or plans without telling people, how do you know that it is not going to interfere with other things going on? You could have two groups working on essentially the same thing simultaneously, yet independently. Consider the land as a company called Loreroot Inc. You have the department managers, Tarquinus, Marvolo, Mya, The Sybil and a few others perhaps, and then you have the MD, the king. A company organises itself and determines what resources and personnel go into different tasks, like R & D, or product creation, marketing etc. You may be on a development team, but other people in the company will be involved at some point, be it packaging, branding, marketing, pricing, or whatever. It works because there is management and communication. If the R & D department decided to take it upon themselves to research, develop, manufacture and market a product and then distribute it without anyone else knowing what would happen? The issue is not about control for the sake of control, but for the sake of the sanity and image of Loreroot Inc. You don't want the stock value of Loreroot Inc to tumble and leave it open to a hostile takeover or near bankruptcy do you?

  49. [quote name='Rhaegar Targaryen' date='10 June 2010 - 12:16 PM' timestamp='1276164990' post='61552'] and to chewett... I don't care about other kings. I'm talking about Firsanthalas, things that he didn't do, why should I compare him with other kings? "Bush is not that bad... Look at XXXXXX in Zimbabwe, he's massacring his people every day, so Bush is not that bad, no reason to do anything a?" (I have no idea what is the situation in Zimbabwe for the record.) [/quote] [i] [/i][i][color="#2e8b57"]Compare apples with apples and not apples with bananas!!! [/color][/i][i] [/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]The political situation in the US is ENTIRELY different to the political situation in Zim or South Africa or Poland or Romania or whichever country you want to pick!! Which is ENTIRELY different to the political situation in MD. [/color][/i][i][color="#2e8b57"] -Im not gonna get started on Bush and Mugabe because I could write pages on their similiarities - [/color][/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]Each President (whether you deem him good or bad) does what he feels is appropriate for their country. Robert Mugabe (The Zimbabwean president -or should I say Authority - the political situation has changed somewhat- ) believes his plan for his country is best, as does Obama, Jacob Zuma etc. Yes the outside world may rant and rave, but at the end of the day the final decisions are made by the ruling party of that country. If the MAJORITY of the public dont like it, come election time, they vote and re-elect. [/color][/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]If you are comparing presidents in terms of who is better, then you look at what they have accomplished for each country in terms of progress compared to the rest of the world, and how they fare when it comes to outside political pressures. [/color][/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]You asked why should you compare Firs to other kings?[/color][/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]Well, if you are looking at what he has accomplished in terms of progress for Loreroot in comparison to other MD lands and how he outside pressures etc; then yes you should compare him to other kings. If you are looking at what he has accomplished as Ruler in Loreroot then you compare him to other rulers in Loreroot.[/color][/i] [i][color="#2e8b57"]The forums that you referred to are, as Udgard said, inactive, and has nothing to do with Firsan's current abilities as a ruler. Why are you making such an issue out of it?[/color][/i]
