  1. I'm a consistent monthly contributor to MD, and from my perspective, the big tombola-type event would be fantastic (Option 1, variant 1). To me, I don't really spend the credits terribly often because I don't feel like I need very many things from the shop anymore. But, I still let my credits build up as support and on that basis of "I might have a use for these one day..." So, I think something really big that come about from continually doing this, but not too frequently (200 instead of 100), would be like an extra incentive to keep on. AND, say we get up to that point and get something really awesome - further incentive to do it again.

    Issues... Well, I certainly understand that option 1 isn't the most friendly to non-paying players.. but, I do not think that a Free Credit lower limit ticket is the way to solve that, because that just means double prizes for people who buy credits AND use free credits, and that's not really balanced either. So yes, it leaves the possibility for free players to get involved, but I think realistically they would not become involved because 200 is a LOT of free credits. I do NOT like a rift between paying vs. non-paying players, though if this is the path to be taken it will likely be a wonderful reward for those who contribute the most. And of course, the option of giving people tickets to the second level for things other than money would be an option.

    One more thing to consider is that players who may be unbalancing things due to their extreme use of the item shop (myself included most likely), will be the most likely ones to get the bigger prizes...just making that gap bigger. Food for thought.

  2. I would love to offer some services to you, Curi. I'm not sure who you have that knows what, but I certainly have a handful of people I feel deserve to be remembered in some fashion and perhaps a thing or two I can tell you about them as well.

    fyi though, I don't check forums much. You're better off catching me at the Road.

  3. So...what about some sort of "Generator" outside the lands? That is, a small group of people that constantly seek out more wp codes that they can use to sponsor people outside the regular lands in their quests. I suspect it would be hard to set up, and harder to maintain, not to mention it would probably get "abused" by Land Alliance people wanting to use it if it worked well enough... But, unless another method is found..? Just a random suggestion.

    Or perhaps set up a regular barter agreement of sorts where kings give a certain number of Tasks that can be "Traded" in for wp codes, similar to the Pickle Points system. These tasks could be like regular quests I suppose, or they could be things that benefit the Realm more. Something like, "find a new place to promote MD from" or "teach a new player for a week straight out of story mode", etc. Again, potentially abused, but a suggestion none the less.

    EDIT: You could also sort of combine the two ideas, of course.

  4. By chance, has anyone noticed this heavily followed avatar in the game? (I believe it belongs to Kittiness...)

    I would have mentioned it long ago (like, when I first saw it because I immediately recognized it), but it just sort of slipped my mind every time.

    Are you going to make a contest out of this, or a... concert of sorts?
    ;); The most original concept behind the Bards and Musicians dates back to one of mine and Saki's first meeting with Knatty when we talked of organizing a Knattish Concert to listen to the Knators sing...sadly, that never happened, and I still would deeply love to see it happen (and vaguely did with the advent of Knatty's Fight). But, on that same note, I am not a 'leader' of the Bards and Musicians. In my mind, they shouldn't need a leader, only a central point where the people can find the results of their work. Having said that, I probably wouldn't bother to organize a competition, though a concert might happen if the people wanted it. Though, again, I wouldn't be responsible, only the means to make it happen...if that makes sense. I'm not trying to push things off or anything, just how I feel...

    you might be able to get renavoid to step back up to his old post as chief archivist.....

    I would like to take this opportunity to point out that, even if you convinced *me* to come back, there are others who would never permit my return.

    Mya Md'Ized the JingleBells song.

    You should get that from her, or look for it on Ailith's Contest thread. :3 It's quite funny.

    I know. I was with her when she was making it up. I hope she'll sing it. :)

    That is good, since Angiens are only existent within MD and we are not supposed to post things outside of the MD community like that (Spoilers and the such, I mean).

    Not strictly true. The shades are not limited to this Realm, and nor are the Angiens. They take different forms in our world and are...hidden in the open shall we say. Just as many other things.

    As has been mentioned, it is definitely important to note that the Angiens do not balance the Shades - but that what we can study one from the other can help us to learn something about the other ~ as well as about ourselves and our world potentially.

    In addition, for your searches, you'll want to remember that art is not rigid. Allow some fluidity in what you think might be or not be within the art in the Realm. On top of that, the Realm itself is not rigid, and the art Reflects this; you may be able to find something in the "bigger picture" of things.

    Note that the creatures themselves may even be able to tell you something...

  9. I would like to add that if someone wants to record their performance in any way and would like to make the media available for this, send your file, along with any short description and credits required, to innersunmusicians@gmail.com and Motis will upload it to youtube for you and send you the link to be used.

    Yes, Ailith. I'm using your contest for publicity to make Motis grow and obtain more active people since apparently those who DO claim to associate with it like to wander off and stop doing things. ;D

  10. Well, it's about that time to start getting Motis (Musicians of the Inner Sun) moving once more! Works of "art" are being compiled once again at the great amusement to its listeners!

    Have you got a great new rendition of a song that has been MDized? Or just something that sounds like fun for MD to have from those who play instruments and tell "dramatic" tales? Just let us know! Send us a message at innersunmusicians@gmail.com along with the video you've compiled if you have, and we'll get it to youtube for you with a pretty Motis stamp on it! If you want to help make some, just get a hold of us, and we can start planning more! Don't worry, you don't have to be a professional by any means. Have you HEARD the crap we do? No? Well...

    Currently available Motis songs:

    The newest addition to our repertoire is [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7q5e-NK-Us"]Awimba Sage[/url]

    [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM-26LVaEOg"]It's Just Porn, Mur[/url]

    [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEBOXO4-wus"]Dumb Newbie[/url]

    [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAgvD7kNaMg&feature=channel"]Magic Duel With You[/url]

    I would like to add an important note. Dumb Newbie was written a very long time ago, and no lasting offense is meant towards Junior. It was a joke that should have stopped. Enjoy the song anyways :D

  11. Getting an error when trying to bind rituals from Firefox 3.6.6

    illegal action reported, keeping on this path will get you banned. #sl1m

    I went through several combinations of rituals and narrowed it down to happening when I have Santa II in the ritual, whether by himself or with others.
