    Reality or Not Reality?

    as much as someone wants MD to be new Middle Earth, it isn't. I was at start a bit frustrated about some things in MD regarding realm's background - not enough presented data, axioms about realm, for you to build on... but later on, you realize that it has to be so. My perception is that our characters represent our spirits, essences, souls... Just, "aspect of RL Ravenstrider" if you get the point. So MD is pretty much related with RL, it isn't some fictional world "far away"... It's difficult to present my intuition clearly to go further into this, otherwise I would make a better "picture"

  3. Story mode clearly states you are projected into MD from your RL self. Yes, our characters are a version of ourselves, but no, you can't be an elf from Middle Earth (or wherever)... You can assume a form that resembles an elf, or one that looks like a dragon, but that doesn't make you a dragon with history of burning villages in Fairytale medieval England. About creatures not regaining VE with counters: Do you know how much processing time would it take for the server to readjust values of VE of thousands of creatures every twelve minutes or so? Some things should be looked at from a pra

  4. Ok this is just based on my own personal opinions. some things i say my offend some i am sorry if it does but i wanted to make this topic for some time and well why not now Well i have been in MD for a long time as many know and through my time here i have seen many a personality. I have a view of MD and what is it about as many of you do. But i am bothered by some of the things i see. So i wanted to write about what is the reality of MD and what is just a persona. Remember this is just my opinion but i am also interested in seeing others views. MD to me is a realm without races.

    Trading System

    Why would there be aneed for that? Part of the appeal here is that you have to try and find people who are willing to sell yourself, or check the forums until someone posts about it. I think it is fine and does not need changing.

    Community Garden

    Many of you who have met me know that I have been working for quite some time on a design for a garden at the Meeting of the Roads. The design process will continue for some time yet before the first tool is put to the ground and the first seeds are sown. The most important key to a successful garden design is observation of natural processes and human interaction with the existing site. I intend to continue observing the site through a full year before implementation begins. That will likely be sometime around Year 6, between Day 250 and Day 300 (ideally Day 270). After many months of a

    Draw your aramor!

    Why don't people draw their aramor versions for the anniversary, and let us judge which version is the best, and if it possibly beats the anniversary aramor even? Depending on the amount of people I might adjust prizes- I will however need at least 4 to 5 submissions for a possible WP, depending on the quality. Otherwise, I will fund this with coins. I'll submit my own somehow later (if i get to draw properly). Edit: It is YOUR version of it- as I pointed out, dst could make a red one for example, since right now she is dst the Red. I'll give extra points for those who draw from scra

  10. I am sympathetic to both points of view. For a long time, I tried hard to convince people that they should stick to the setting as it is presented by the game itself, not RP magical effects they don't have in-game (something I still dislike), and stay grounded in the "fantasy reality" of MD. But even that metric proved inadequate when Mur himself posted that MD is allegorical and that roleplay in MD has a unique meaning in the frame of RPGs. If we go by "canon only", there not only are no non-humans, but there are no non-player personalities in the game. There is instead a multitude of persona

  11. Seriously yrthillian? no arguments? I have used the most classical argument in existence: a counterexample. no facts? I have used one of the sources which is repeatedly stated as the most important ones for facts about MD, even by the person who created the game. Things in MD have to be 'intended'? It is in a perpetual 'alpha' state. There is no such requirement as original intent. A robot is not a 'race'? A robot is not a human. Your premise was stated literally as 'humans only, except if the character was created by Mur' Perobotillo was a player who earned his recognition some tim

It's not real if one person still thinks you're imagining things and has arguments to support his or her claim.

    ehehe, thanks all for playing with me! @ Cur - D’oh! I completely forgot to attach the word doc. Here’s the file: [attachment=2743:The Void Described.txt] You mods don’t appreciate stupidity? I bet you don’t even watch nut shots on youtube! Wait… that’s preposterous. With all the nonsense posted in the last couple days I wanted to throw my own brand of stoopid on the pile, not elevate the discourse And don’t piss on magick, not while whistling anyway. Who’s to say someone won’t look at this silliness and understand the potential of the blank page? This idea is everywhere in MD, and I wa

  17. Hah! I got one to win both categories. Let me just scour Facebook for it...

I'm laughing my arse off because the friend that's "on the lookout" is reporting his count of the cannons on the pirate ship ahead of us. Also, for some strange reason, his count of chickens on the same ship. This led us to the conclusion we're on a collision course with pirate chickens... So we proceeded to row backwards in order to escape the impending doom. (Also: T

  18. [b][i]Angiens: "The Burning Sensation is Not An STD"[/i][/b] -Angien mating is a truly complex thing, due to the energy burn. Some speculate that the reason for angiens being so rare is that one partner always dies during the act. Since the continuation of the species depends on the female (or male, if males lay eggs) survive, that must mean that one gender of the angien population is dominant. Which, I can not say. I've had some trouble taking a peak under that armor. *fingers his burn scars* -Direction of further research: The size of the eggs. How in the seven hells do they lay it?!

[/i][/color] [color="#2e8b57"][i]By persona do you mean Projected Character in game? Because yes, not everyone chooses to be human in game. Its a given that all the users behind the characters are human unless there is a chimp banging away at keyboard and goes behind the username: {_____insert username here____} The way I see it, MD gives the user the platform to re-create themselves , via the Personal Pages, and portray themself in whichever way they would like to.
