  1. [b]MDNP would like to create a functioning quest list on the forums[/b], one that is actually updated. This is because we plan for the as of now unrealized newspaper to have a quest section, for the greater convenience and happiness of any single reader--with the additional bonus of encouraging participation in floundering quests! This is a tedious task for our yet small staff, so we need some help.

    We would appreciate the following information about any active quest:

    [b]Name:[/b] Quest Name
    [b]Maker:[/b] whoever made the quest
    [b]Started:[/b] DD-MMM (i.e. 12-Jan-09)
    [b]Duration: [/b]until DD-MMM
    [b]Objective:[/b] one or two lines summarizing or describing what the quest is
    [b]Reward:[/b] the reward
    [b]Additional notes:[/b] if you'd like to add something relevant

    Anyone may contribute! If you see a quest that has not yet been added to this list, please help us out. With our collective effort and love, perhaps this list won't die as quickly as its pitiable predecessors!

    [center][size=6]The List[/size] (so far)
    We will try our best to establish contact with the quest-maker if it is not him who reports his quest, so as to obtain the most accurate and comprehensive information.

    [b]Maker:[/b] .Metal Bunny.

    [b]Additional Notes:[/b] I would've ended it a lot sooner, like right now. But my new quest isn't finished yet and part of my quest involves a lot of the RPC items, and they are not done yet. So.. I just left this old one up until it is done.

  2. Nah, breaking from the lovely roleplaying, Globbo isn't really reading too much into the mission. What his character decides to do shouldn't be compromised by real life hope for MD to change, and besides, his character's opposition isn't necessarily going to oppress anything in terms of entropy; a single character's actions (being Khalazdad's) does not bear the sole responsibility of bringing change. I think it's perfectly reasonable for him to demand more information when masses just commit their support without a second thought.

    We love entropy!

  3. What, did I say backbone somewhere? So uppity, quoting something that isn't even there to be quoted...

    But anyway, you know, no matter if the country is the backbone, you shouldn't undermine the important contributions of your friendly minorities, say the Chinese old woman and her family. It's a sin!

    What, MB, did you just create a one-word post consisting of "Lol..."?

    I snicker.

    [b]EDIT: there is an edit button glai. use it. Chew[/b]

  4. Pshh.. MD has a lot bigger problems than those missing docs, I wouldn't even note that in a critical review. :P I mean, it is supposed to be in alpha anyway, although it tries to be an official game at the same time.

    And yeah the links used to work, or that's what I remember at least. Hum.. that's what I remember, but I can't remember any actual content of the documents... Muhmuhmuhmuh doesn't matter much. -.-

  5. Yeah.. the cause of it is pretty apparent, but I figured I might as well report it for the record in case nobody ever noticed. The links at the bottom of the page ingame and when viewing players' external pages no longer link to the right location, just [url="http://magicduel.com/layout.php#"]http://magicduel.com/layout.php#[/url] or [url="http://magicduel.com/#"]http://magicduel.com/#[/url].

    It shouldn't be that hard to fix. /: Although, I'm sure Manu has better things to do and it's not that important since nobody really cares anyway about those documents, etc etc. -__-

  6. Muh. The next time that happens, you can do online window shopping for food! dst.. have you tried coconut paletas de leche? Even though it is milk-based it really is not sour.. i___i Speaking of which, you do eat ice cream...? Yeah, you have a favorite... and cookies too... . . .

    But for the Chinese family thing, really, it isn't hard so I think it is worth it. I learned the basics from a farming simulation game! It's so nice to have a Chinese family. The stuff in small Asian markets are expensive, you know? Try it out, you will be amazed at what you can do.

    . . .

    How dare you pass the Chinese population off as invisible, dst! You just don't realize all we do for your countries, all the back-breaking labor we do in the backgrounds of your lives! Next time, thank that old Chinese lady, and also give her a cabbage head.

  7. Oh, yes.. I forget that there are times I actually posess sense and do something more productive and worthy than visiting the MD forums. I feel proud now. :)

    And, really, there are newbies who will talk to you. The current LHO team has really unappealing characters, don't you think? I wouldn't want to talk to some freaking roleplayers either. Anyway, I don't need frilly conversation, srsly.

    My school doesn't block MD or its forums, because it's such an obscure game.

  8. It's too late now, dst. -_-

    Hey, I will tell you a surefire way to gain a Chinese family, without the hassle of marrying a Chinese woman. It's a secret tactic! Find the closest old Chinese lady and talk to her whenever you pass by. Act curious, outgoing, friendly. Ask her gardening tips, make her tell you how to say this or that word in her language, comment on various things she does, relate conversations you had with others and ask her opinion. Bring her gifts like eggs, fruit and vegetables: "Do you like these? How do you cook them?" If you're male, it would behoove you to be abashed whenever she compliments you. If she ever mentions something you can help with, do so eagerly! She should begin talking about her children and grandchildren, and when that happens you should start calling her Auntie (ask first though). At this point you can begin asking about her past days and talking about your love life (fake or real). On holidays, if you follow these directions, she will start giving small gifts. If you keep this up for an extended period, you will meet members of her family and be called Uncle by her grandchildren! :)

    The bean curd was a little disappointing. Too many dehydrated oysters overpowered the delicate taste. Someone cooked the BBQ pork and duck with tomato-cauliflower; I ended up eating only the cauliflower. But otherwise, very good! And I also got egg rolls, biscuit cookies, dried-salted plums and tangerines with the stems and leaves attached to them.

  9. ... The last time people were so active on the forums? That one thread which was supposed to be about the Bestiary, turned to talk about grasans' cuteness, split off into another topic, and finally derailed into blatant anime otaku frenzy. Thank goodness that only lasted about a few hours.

    I'll figure out what career I will pursue from someone who doesn't slack off on the job to play MD. B) *spends her 7th period posting on MD forums*

    And forsho the obnoxious romantic interaction in MD bothers me! It makes me intensely uncomfortable! How could it ever be possible to enjoy witnessing something like that? It is most definitely a horrible way to learn from older people, since the activity itself is so pathetic. I see enough of it in real life, thanks.

    If you're going to flirt, don't simply fawn over each other like simple dolts; make it [i]entertaining[/i] rather than sickening. Damn it, where did my lovely MD of gamers and anime lovers go?! Freaking roleplayers..

    Just wait.. MD will turn into a cybersex shop. >_>

    I think I would like being LHO in Golemus. I would be able to avoid the freaking roleplayers and culture a better generation with my awesome influence.. My brilliant aura would dazzle them, provide immunity from the senseless horrors they will have to endure in a community of freaking roleplayers, hum yes...

  10. Mehh.. My dad thought it was New Year's Eve the day before the actual eve. Not that I knew myself, anyway. I had to ask Yami (and here is the relevance to MD), and she also went on to tell me how to say Happy New Year in three different languages. Our family is American. >_>

    But my dad brought home fried pork skin, duck meat, BBQ pork, peanut-butter sesame dim sum, egg cakes, dumplings, bean curd soup, boiled chicken and sticky cake from Grandma's. n___n I'm so happy, I'm happy just boasting about it. I love Chinese New Year.

    Oh, I have to check how much money I got from Grandma too. Suckers.

  11. Hmm.. how much time it would take, eh? Well, it depends on how much you want to help out and how long you take to proofread. It's going to be rather irregular because you'll have work only when the writer finishes his, and we haven't even established release dates. I think if you do only one department as Garg is saying, you shouldn't have to spend time every day and it should be only a little time at that.

    Any help is appreciated!
