  1. As some of you might remember, i used to be the drachorn guy. I just realized how long it's been when i looked up the corresponding announcement https://magicduel.com/page/Announcement/view/4044 To my knowledge, there hasn't been any serious attempt at picking up the role, so i once more encourage whomever it may concern to prove your skills and claim it for yourself! About the poll, i don't consider the charms 'mine' anymore, but i still have technically unlimited access to the drachorn cave. Seeing as i finished my exams, i can make a little more time for MD again, and if the
  2. moved to offtopic I want to trade 5 kilos of fat for 5 kilos of muscle without the hassle of going to gym <.<
  3. Mod: There has been movement in the AL, and this thread is really hostile enough by now. If you could all dial it back one notch, that'd be great, and if you can't, i'll start hiding things.
  4. *voice from the off* You all probably realized that i turned into a silent reader a rather long while back, but 'taking it to the game' is nigh impossible currently. As of this moment (which used to be a good time to be online), there's 14 people logged in, 7 of them idle. You seriously can't expect people to wait around for the exact right people to play with and do nothing meanwhile, there needs to be some stuff people can do on their own while hanging around. Otherwise they won't hang around long enough to find any catch to push the story off. I admit that i wouldn't even know abo
  5. Split off an interesting bit of discussion about the scene name "Pathway to Pips Palace" to ~Mod B
  6. I like that idea, i think that's the first drachorn that actually "flies" I'll leave this here a bit longer, see if you get more upvotes... remind me if i don't come back to you by friday It's got the details, it's a really nice concept, and i'm a fan of recycling, too... i think that's a 5-rating (on a scale from 2 to 8)
  7. Woohoo, thanks! Had a great time in germany, thanks
  8. I like that idea, if that's a technical option. Generally, i think that even when we say or write stupid things, it's better to apologize and actually take them back than to "rewind time". I agree with the people above about having a public edit history, too, but i think that's just another technical way to making this "redacting" thing impossible, while it doesn't add to the process of deciding whether we want to remove redacting or not.
  9. i don't know why, but it seems to work again. Did you do some wookie magic fix?
  10. How so, if they can't come to you and you can't come to them? That would require them to have an item collecting spot, and it would take away a lot of the 'mini-quest-layer' thing Mur mentioned over here
  11. Same issue, same version of opera Maybe we need to switch our habits of MD? Version: 49.0.2725.47 - Opera is up to date
  12. I think that must've been khalazdad, i got stuck at the howling gates and didn't realize that the right arrow had popped up... we talked a few minutes, and i was a little freaked out back then because i had literally no clue about any lore, and he was the most in-character-player ever to exist
  13. I'm certain that absolute democracy will under all circumstances lead to absolute idiocracy, given enough time. I firmly believe that all voting must be limited to certain topics, but not certain people. If we allowed any sort of interference about the question who gets to vote, the "loud" ideas will inevitably overrule the "quiet" ideas, and history shows that the loudest ideas have almost always been the worst. Taking away the ability to vote from certain groups would in turn lead to this group being ignored, since their voice stops to count, and thus it also stops to matter. You can fr
  14. I've just noticed that the icons in the left bar don't light up anymore. Tested with fight log, ally chat and PM, none of them send a notification (turn yellow or ping). Running on Opera: Version information Version: 46.0.2597.57 (PGO) - Downloading update 100% Update stream: Stable System: Windows 7 64-bit Browser identification Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/59.0.3071.115 Safari/537.36 OPR/46.0.2597.57
  15. Has current VE / VP - that allows you to make quests where people can actually help or hinder one another through combat features Has achievement - specifically thinking about research depth here, but i could think of newbie quests to require burst burner or high end quests to require full glow Has ally / specific ally - what ivorak said, but with allies. You could create nice little gang wars, for example
  16. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/forum/321-heated-discussions/ IIRC that subsection is visible only to registered users?
  17. It's got ears, spiky tail, even toes, that's more detail than most had Lovely little thing, the drach is heading out! What did you use for the eyes? It that a glass pearl?
  18. Ad Sub-Lease: That's exactly what we had in mind when we made it, all those constructions won't matter. Once your time expires, you can demand your item back, regardless of where / on whom it currently is. It wouldn't matter whether your lessor leased it to someone else, sold it, gave it away, or simply tries to hide it, you just get it back. Ad Formality: We discussed posting it on the forum, but we figured it'd clutter the forum needlessly, and some people would want to keep secrets. We tried to make a failsafe for the people who would attempt to alter the text afterwards in a simpler w
  19. Heh, we didn't even come up with sub-lease, sounds rather unlikely, too... I can't see how a sub-lease weakens your position, though? Once the time you agreed on expires, you get your item back, no matter what the other party does with the third party... I can't see a problem with sub-lease, please do enlighten me. About the silver, if you wish to do more, feel free. There's no admin warranty on that part, though, admin powers only get you the item returned, i hope that's clear.
  20. Chewie brought up an interesting thought about a contract form and the option for people to call onto admin powers to get their stuff back, to promote the lease of items. So, after some internal discussion and tweaking, here's the form How to: Just fill in names, dates and terms at the points where you see [ and ]. Points that say 'optional' should be deleted if you don't need them, it gets confusing if you leave them blank. Read carefully before use, specially point VIII! Lease Agreement between [Owner of the Item] (referred to as 'Owner') and [Leaseholder] (referred t
  21. Doesn't sound like you asked for a judgement on a specific situation. You asked about a judgement on "the Nomad's Bring In spells". You see how that's quite different from asking for a judgement on whether it's okay if Azull teleports somebody to Necrovion to get a kill on them, right?
  22. Burns likes to be highly cryptic, get used to it Chewie made it clearer than i could have, mainly because he lives in a common law system and has english as first language... If i had tried to tell you how rules and judges work, i'd have taken twice the words and still only made it half as clear. One thing i want to underline, because i think Chewie didn't make that clear enough just yet, is the material difference thing. In Chew's summary (page 3, par 2) it sounds a lot like a change in law can make for a material difference, and the same is applicable for a different setting. The d
  23. At longer consideration, and after Chew pointing out the obvious to me, i'll have to withdraw my previous post. There's too much risk of people considering everything that doesn't make it on the list to be okay, so i can't provide one. Sorry to get your hopes up.
