  1. Today I have added in the structure and code to create upgradeable buildings in MagicDuel. These will allow players to pay resources towards a project which will, over time, grow and provide additional functionality. An example of this is a treasury that if properly maintained will grow and allow more items and creatures to be stored. There is a wide range of possibilities with this that I plan to expand this to encompass and I am sure the A25 team can come up with ideas that I have not even considered! Some examples include contributing resources to your lands armoury to provide bonuses, charging fees at land boundaries (if protected!), and even the ability to blockade scenes and other areas in a "war footing". Or you could have a community shed which, is improved would allow a wider range of items to be grown, and tools to be used. The ability to "upgrade" a scene using this framework is pretty wide so I am open to ideas about how you could create an upgradable building. The start of this however is the humble building, a framework that allows contribution towards resources in MagicDuel. For the moment the underlying code and tables are in place and I plan to continue the work to make it more functional. I will detail more information once I have the first instance implemented and I can demonstrate how it works within MD. A25 members are welcome to ask my questions on our PM thread beforehand however as the (read only interface) is currently up. Please note nothing you see below is currently fixed.

  8. Acoustic Remains 0036-1924 - Trivia [20/06/21 10:11] Pipstickz:Grab a poultice for summer solstice [20/06/21 10:12] Pipstickz:You\'ll see I wrote this very verbose list [20/06/21 10:34] Chewett:Morning all [20/06/21 10:39] Miq:Monin [20/06/21 11:48] :Ungod scouts the scene for trivia participants [20/06/21 11:49] Ungod:hullo [20/06/21 11:56] :Ungod puts an arm under his head and leans on a pillar [20/06/21 12:10] lashtal:Greetings, merry folks. [20/06/21 14:48] Fyrd Argentus:Good morning, realm. [20/06/21 14:50] lashtal:Hello Fyrd [20/06/21 14:51] Fyrd Argentus:Hello Lashtal. [20/06/21 14:51] Fyrd Argentus:I hope your added bait brings in some entries. [20/06/21 14:52] Fyrd Argentus:Pip and DG have been thinking about doing entries.... [20/06/21 14:52] Fyrd Argentus:Nothing at all happened last evening.... you see anything this morning solstice-wise? [20/06/21 14:56] Ungod:it\'s been raining for two weeks now, i\'m getting used to a uk-like weather [20/06/21 14:56] Ungod:hard to do any sky-scouting when it\'s pouring every 30 minutes [20/06/21 14:57] Ungod:so even my idea of making a sun-dial for fun would be useless this year, lol [20/06/21 15:04] Fyrd Argentus:So, does anybody here want to play a game? [20/06/21 15:05] Fyrd Argentus:Lashtal and Ungod have pulses. [20/06/21 15:05] Ungod:you\'ll have to put on a wig and a tag with the name \'marind\' to get some audience [20/06/21 15:05] lashtal:Pulses? [20/06/21 15:05] :[Spell] Little birdies, report to Fyrd Argentus [20/06/21 15:05] Ungod:lash racted to the word pulse, i to the word game [20/06/21 15:07] Fyrd Argentus:Pulse, as in actually breathing in air and showing signs of metabolic activity. (Not idle) [20/06/21 15:07] Ungod:i hope those birds tell you about how to bathe in the blood of the dragon for iimortality, fyrd [20/06/21 15:07] Fyrd Argentus:No, they just tell me nothing happened all night, solstice-wise. [20/06/21 15:07] Fyrd Argentus:Just checking. [20/06/21 15:08] Fyrd Argentus:Well, we were scheduled for a game of hot potato, but with 3.... [20/06/21 15:08] Fyrd Argentus:The pun contest could sort-of work - that was postponed last night due to lack of an audience. [20/06/21 15:08] Ungod:i\'d pass the hot potato to someone idle...just to see them burnnnn [20/06/21 15:08] Fyrd Argentus:Or we could get Ungod to do trivia. [20/06/21 15:08] lashtal:Hot potato requires Pipstickz to be valid [20/06/21 15:09] Ungod:so he\'s expired? [20/06/21 15:09] Fyrd Argentus:Well, actually it\'s \'Pass the gas\' with stinky items. [20/06/21 15:09] Fyrd Argentus:So maybe he is stinky and expired. [20/06/21 15:09] Fyrd Argentus:Or I could do my silly little speech for the record. [20/06/21 15:10] Ungod:pip, if you do not want your reputation tarnished even more, stand up and react [20/06/21 15:10] Fyrd Argentus:He\'s idle. That\'s the problem. [20/06/21 15:10] Fyrd Argentus:We are in fact only 3. [20/06/21 15:10] Fyrd Argentus:4 if Chewie is lurking. [20/06/21 15:10] :Ungod watches Pip\'s reputation go down the drain [20/06/21 15:10] :Ungod watches for lurkers [20/06/21 15:11] lashtal:He was [20/06/21 15:11] Fyrd Argentus:Yes, the little birdies told me. [20/06/21 15:11] Ungod:we are what\'s left of the 300, then [20/06/21 15:11] Fyrd Argentus:Actually I saw the tail of that, but did not know how stale it was or wasn\'t [20/06/21 15:12] Fyrd Argentus:How about I give my short silly speech and see if anybody else shows up. [20/06/21 15:12] :Fyrd Argentus coughs [20/06/21 15:12] Fyrd Argentus:Thank you all for helping to kick off the beginning of our Solstice Celebration. [20/06/21 15:12] lashtal:Go ahead, I\'m all ears [20/06/21 15:12] Fyrd Argentus: (ha!) [20/06/21 15:12] Fyrd Argentus:However, I must admit to having made a terrible mistake. [20/06/21 15:12] Ungod: (haha!) [20/06/21 15:12] Fyrd Argentus:It has to do with the curious timeless-ness of this realm. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:In another place I frequent, I checked the books and it said the solstice was June 20. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:11:30 June 20, in that realm. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:PM [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:Which actually puts it 0630 ST – tomorrow morning. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:To be fair, nobody is going to be awake enough then to enjoy a party, so no point in rescheduling. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:We are actually celebrating the lead-up to the solstice, which is going to occur in about 25 hours. [20/06/21 15:13] Fyrd Argentus:So think of it as an extra little bit of party opportunity, and have fun! [20/06/21 15:14] :Ungod pretends to understand and nods sagely [20/06/21 15:14] Fyrd Argentus: (sorry, script is out of time too.... make that 22 hours) [20/06/21 15:14] Fyrd Argentus:There, it\'s done. [20/06/21 15:14] Fyrd Argentus:That was supposed to be done at 0500, but nobody else was there. [20/06/21 15:14] :Ungod is disappointed [20/06/21 15:14] Ungod:there\'s nothing silly about this speech... [20/06/21 15:14] Ungod:>> [20/06/21 15:14] Ungod:<< [20/06/21 15:14] :Fyrd Argentus readies his water balloon. [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:Heads up! [20/06/21 15:15] :Fyrd Argentus heaves it at ungod. [20/06/21 15:15] Ungod:>.> [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:3 [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:2 [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:1 [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:Splash! [20/06/21 15:15] Ungod: (aand...i\'m lagging again) [20/06/21 15:15] Fyrd Argentus:You gotta be quicker. [20/06/21 15:16] Fyrd Argentus:With more players, and duplicates of the "hot potato" I think that would be a fun game, but not with 3 so much. [20/06/21 15:16] Fyrd Argentus:Especially if you\'re lagging, Ungod. [20/06/21 15:17] Fyrd Argentus:I guess I\'ll just post my next music video. [20/06/21 15:18] Ungod:Switched to mobile [20/06/21 15:18] :Ungod is now drenched [20/06/21 15:18] :Chewett chuckles at Ungod [20/06/21 15:18] Ungod:But i see the silliness noe, at least [20/06/21 15:20] Ungod:Mhm, every time i rotate the ohone, the page refreshes. The wonders of mobile lay... [20/06/21 15:21] Chewett:Ah yes thats Mur\'s hack [20/06/21 15:21] Ungod:... That was play {We work awhile, here and later, getting Fyrd's 4 music videos properly linked into the forum - Thanks Chewett!} [20/06/21 15:29] Ungod:Picnicing\'s a bitch? Ahahaha [20/06/21 15:29] Fyrd Argentus:Well, this new limit will get me through the solstice. [20/06/21 15:29] Fyrd Argentus:Then I\'ll go back and do damage control. [20/06/21 15:32] Ungod: (I\'ll be back later to see if any1 is awake for some trivia) [20/06/21 15:32] Fyrd Argentus:So, DG has this game [20/06/21 15:32] Fyrd Argentus:He wants me to run [20/06/21 15:32] Chewett:Oh? [20/06/21 15:33] Fyrd Argentus:he\'s posted the rules on the solstice link (see mood panel) [20/06/21 15:33] Fyrd Argentus:It\'s done on a blank chessboard [20/06/21 15:33] Fyrd Argentus:Move with a die [20/06/21 15:33] Fyrd Argentus:Different tiles have different results [20/06/21 15:33] Fyrd Argentus:You\'re trying to be the first to find the treasure. [20/06/21 15:34] Fyrd Argentus:some tiles cause you to do public "things" that you might consider punishment, but others would find funny [20/06/21 15:34] Fyrd Argentus:Three of you playing could work.... [20/06/21 15:35] Fyrd Argentus:I\'d have to be moderator. [20/06/21 15:35] Chewett:I think it is too early in the day for people to be active, it seems people are still not online! [20/06/21 15:36] Chewett:I must apologise but I am unable to attend much today [20/06/21 15:36] Fyrd Argentus:I\'ll pass that suggestion back to him. [20/06/21 15:36] Fyrd Argentus:No problem, Chewie. [20/06/21 15:36] Chewett:I would be happy to port him here to run these events but I imagine that would defeat the point of Mur\'s punishment... [20/06/21 15:37] Fyrd Argentus:Just the one game, but you have a point. [20/06/21 15:37] Fyrd Argentus:Besides, I\'ve seen the secret board now. [20/06/21 15:38] Chewett:The secret board! *shock* [20/06/21 15:38] Fyrd Argentus:Does Mur ever parade around prisoners in chains? [20/06/21 15:38] Chewett:We normally let them out during the birthday [20/06/21 15:38] lashtal:Never seen that happening [20/06/21 15:38] Chewett:I suppose DG could escape too [20/06/21 15:39] Chewett:I have done smoething and MD is shifted to the left... any ideas? [20/06/21 15:39] Fyrd Argentus:He seems penitent. [20/06/21 15:40] Fyrd Argentus:I didn\'t notice an earthquake. [20/06/21 15:40] Fyrd Argentus:Nothing on refresh. [20/06/21 15:40] Chewett:Does he? That amuses me that idea [20/06/21 15:41] Fyrd Argentus:Well, he said he wasn\'t going to use alts to bypass the sentence... [20/06/21 15:41] Fyrd Argentus:Maybe he\'s just afraid of getting caught. [20/06/21 15:42] Chewett:Ironically, without making comment to his sentence, maybe that fear would have served him better before the abuse! [20/06/21 15:47] Chewett:I fear we do not have the populace active on a weekend to satisfy the effort you have put in Fyrd, it saddens me [20/06/21 15:48] Fyrd Argentus:Well, the games can wait. [20/06/21 15:48] Fyrd Argentus:This was an experiment. [20/06/21 15:49] Fyrd Argentus:I had hoped a weekend was easier than a weekday to schedule. [20/06/21 15:49] Chewett:We possibly need a way of roasing those who play infrequently [20/06/21 15:49] Fyrd Argentus:Maybe not. Spring has sprung, and summer is upon us. People want to get outside when the sun shines... [20/06/21 15:51] Fyrd Argentus:I just posted an RSVP for solstice events. Maybe that\'s a way to get people together - sign-ups. [20/06/21 15:51] Chewett:That may be useful, certainly worth a try [20/06/21 15:51] Fyrd Argentus:If you get a list of people, then schedule when they can all come. [20/06/21 15:51] Fyrd Argentus:Rather than picking a time and seeing later who shows. [20/06/21 15:52] Fyrd Argentus:Which may be more appropriate in middle of a festival. [20/06/21 15:52] Fyrd Argentus:I will salvage all the game events that way, starting tomorrow. [20/06/21 15:53] Fyrd Argentus:Is it possible to do nested sub-forums on the forum? Sub-sub-forums? [20/06/21 15:53] Chewett:Indeed, there are a few [20/06/21 15:54] Fyrd Argentus:Like if I wanted to have a series of event opportunites (with dialog) posted under LS/Community Events/Event Sign-up [20/06/21 15:54] Chewett:Yeah just send me the details of what you want on forum PM and I will attend to that forthwith [20/06/21 15:54] Fyrd Argentus:Each topic would be a discussion of who and when would be able to meet. [20/06/21 15:54] Fyrd Argentus:OK, thanks. [20/06/21 15:56] Fyrd Argentus:Will do. [20/06/21 15:58] Fyrd Argentus:Hello Tissy, glad you could join us. [20/06/21 15:58] Chewett:Hey Tissy! [20/06/21 17:27] Fyrd Argentus:So, games on tap if anybody is interested: [20/06/21 17:27] Fyrd Argentus:Ungod’s Trivia, DG’s Board game, Puns, “Pass the Gas”, Mind Race, “Drunken Charades”

I will pay an additional two silver coins for any entry that also is linked to a forum post or similar linkable event. Please post below (one event per post) so I can review and add them, thanks!

  14. The "A Curious Box" Clickie should read as follows: ==================================== The crate has broken open and the contents scattered by the sea. A waterproof envelope is attached to the top, with a note in it which reads: "Dear [Player-name], Enclosed please find the crystallized shards of the mental components you will need for your self-image reintegration. Please take them to the clerk at the Magic Duel Archives on the mainland to complete the process. Do collect as many reality shards and valuable resources as you can along the way. We do hope you will be feeling better. Best of luck..." The rest of the note has been smudged. Looking deeper into the crate you see one small vial. You recover it and the stopper pops out. There is a fleeting wisp of vapor and you hear a voice whispering in your ear: "I am a spirit sent to help you reintegrate. I can animate any mental construct you might need as you progress. In addition I imbue in you your first 'Vital Energy', so that you may live and grow. This will be used by you and restored again when you rest, and its top increases each day. Fear not, you cannot be harmed beyond recovery in this place - you are safe. I cannot help you find the other spirits, but we were 16 to begin, and I expect you will need us all." You wonder what has happened, and why you have no memory of the events leading to this bleached-out place. Did you suffer a mental breakdown? Or are you an unfinished artificial intelligence? Did you perish in the storm, and this is an afterlife? Or did you escape the storm by sliding into another dimension? Or were you kidnapped by fairies, or sent here by a witch's curse? Where did that unnatural storm come from? You have no way to tell, as your memory is a blur. ====================================== The remaining 15 clickies now become active (seashells, bird nests, bottles, gems, rocks, bushes, etc. mostly on the 2 scenes with a water's edge, but some inland) It would be nice if they glowed orange, then dissappeared when opened. Each follows the same pattern, and ideally should give the same sequence regardless of the order the clickies are hit (index via a global variable). You could have all the clickies physically present from the start, if it is easier, and just have them do nothing (& not glow if that's happening) if the index is still 0. Activating the clickies should make as much bling happen as possible - at least the resonator sound. There is no real reason to link these events with the actual granting of creature slots, stats, etc. If esthetically necessary, tag a line on the exits saying 'your 16 spirit helpers are all now with you'. ===================================== Each begins "I am a spirit sent to help you reintegrate. I can animate any mental construct you might need as you progress. In addition..." 2 "... I bring you the power of action. These 'Action Points' will be used and restored again when you rest, and increase each day." 3 "... I bring you the ability to 'Defend' yourself from the mental assault of other minds. As long as you retain the mantle of protection from this place, and do not mingle your affairs with others, your mental defenses will be particularly strong." 4 "... I bring you the ability to 'Regenerate' immediately after any mental assault. There will always be some impact on you, and you can always heal slowly over time. This effect is right away." 5 "... I bring you protection from environmental dangers and weather. As long as you retain the mantle of protection from this place, and do not mingle your affairs with others, your 'Energetic Immunity' will be strong. Also, I bring you Luck, which is a blessing in many ways." 6 "... I bring you the ability to project your mind to impact others as you grow. 'Attack' and 'Power' refer to your ability to project physically and mentally. Initiative refers to your speed. Be careful how you use these abilities, as those you meet are on a path like your own." 7 "... I bring you two 'Erolin Devices' to help control your emotions. When you get excited, and your system fills with adrenaline, we call this 'heat'. It magnifies the effect of everything you do. 'Briskness' measures how quickly you build up heat when you move or fight. Erolin devices will help you capture and save, or store, this heat, or emotional energy, until a later time when it will do you some good, at an important event." 8 "... I bring you the ability to learn more things, such as Trade Sense, and many crafty skills. The local currency is silver and gold, but there other things such as Honor, Loyalty, and Winertia which you will need to manage to fit into society and conduct commerce." 9-16 "... I bring you more energy reserves, a 'Power-Up', to use if needed as you grow stronger."

    Angien Fenth Bug

    @Fang Archbane the creature has been removed and you can pick a new creature from the location you obtained it from. @A25 it looks like the template item was created wrongly and had bad data inside it. I will speak with Azull more to find out what happened to it.

    Roguelike Celebration

    The Roguelike Celebration is an online conference celebrating roguelikes and similar games, with talks given both my game creators and players. Last year's conference was held in an interactive online space styled after a MUD. It was designed for the conference but open-sourced for similar events: https://github.com/lazerwalker/azure-mud. Sharing here for two reasons: Current MD players might enjoy attending the event (will take place October 16th & 17th). Seems like something that would appeal to a lot of you, and you might come back with some ideas to add to MagicDuel. They currently have a call for proposals open for new talks. If there's an aspect of MagicDuel you find particularly intriguing, you should consider submitting a proposal by June 25. Speakers are paid, and you might even attract a few new players to MagicDuel. You can also talks from last year here: https://roguelike.club/event2020.html If you're thinking about submitting a talk proposal, consider sharing it here for feedback from your fellow MagicDuel adventurers. Also feel free to throw out some ideas for talks you think might fit the CFP but aren't something you personally feel qualified to talk about; maybe someone else will pick up the torch.

  20. I'd like to thank Sunfire for making a tournament just for me, a tournament where I can really shine. From now on, me saying i'm not good at combat will no longer be met with polite silence, but with a ''we know''. I'd also like to thank my trees, Mythrandir and Asthir, for their sacrificial prowess over the course of the last 4 years and in this tourney. I have lost all battles against all my foes! (and I'm proud of it??)

  22. I don't know how MD came up tonight in my mind. Maybe cause Christmas is close by and omg how I looooved MD's Christmas. Or maybe my haunted and tired mind needed a break from reality. Don't know..but the fact is that here I am once more to say hello and then fa rewell. I don't know how I drifted away from the game. I never thought it will ever be possible but you know :"never say never". I miss the game, I miss the thrill, I miss the quests and mostly I miss my friends in here. It's been a very very long journey. I grew up with MD, I've learned with MD and I've evolved with MD. I've learned a lot about myself. I took that knowledge with me in RL and I expanded. Life has been tough but defo kinder than for many so I am grateful for that. I want to come back and I haven't given up the thought. I just wish MD will still be here when I decide it's time. Oh and do something with the horrible interface! It's how we say in Romanian "passion killer" Hope you are all well and so are your loved ones. We are certainly living "interesting times". I will never again wish that to anyone . Hugs and kisses until next time, dst
