    When ever there is a court a jury and other important facts there is the defendant the prosecution and of course the lawyer. Though in this case the party of both has to be the same so if we included a person who bought a lawyer in MD for say 1 silver for that case the person would not be able to appear in court if the other person choose to represent them selves. Though I still see a way to implicate this.

    The second job of a lawyer is rather simple and that is legal and mental coaching prior and after a trial. That's where I want to come in. I have a high school level of information on criminal and civil law suites and there execution. With this current case and a few future ones I will be offering this service for free just to test it out and see how much I can actually do and swede opinions and maybe even suggest a plea bargain.

    Remember for now this is free so seeking counsel prior to your type of legal case you choose to pursue may be a good choice in order to help your trial. I obviously will only be counseling one side if any side. I can be contacted via PM or forum post though I prefer to talk in game as it is closer to a chat line than anything else. I am usually available 12 hours a day excluding weekends so I am flexible.

    If anybody is interested in earthier starting a case or in danger of being prosecuted make sure to contact me.

    P.S. Hay maybe it is successful I can get cutler to set up a makeshift office and a firm in the Astral Plane ROFL.

    what no OJ goes free?

    Seriously though I understand what you mean by that. I think that a proper lawyer would be used for helping set up the case more then representing it. Some people are flat out not good at making a case, or debating. That's where the advice of a lawyer would come in. They would help set up sort of a format for the defendant/prosecutor to go by in order to help get their point across better. Do I think that a guilty person could go free if portrayed in an eloquent enough format? Hard to say, but I think it would give a great RP value to the whole thing.

    Right now with Mur being the only Judge, of course we can't have trials all the time due to his busy schedule. Once Kings/Queens or appointed people are given the ability to make a judgment, then perhaps even pass the trial for the execution of the penalty for those found guilty, it would be an interesting thing to see more of these happen. Slander is a thing that happens in this game more often then about any other injustice. Thing such as Public Logs, Chat Screens, and so on could be put on trial. I think it would not only give the Kings/Queens an active part in their land, it would also be a great source of RP.

    I take pride in being brief and contest your assertion that my posts are near-sighted.

    My evident lack of neutrality is because I don't see a point in posting where I have no opinion, unless it is some competition.


    My credentials?
    I studied several Supreme Court cases in a Civics course. I watched TV shows and several movies based on real courtroom dramas (I learned most here). Finally, I was the defense attorney in a classroom court proceeding and won the case (edit: no, the conclusion was not predetermined).


    I agree that further applications should be limited. (Sorry for jumping the gun and just assuming I could enter without applying, as you did.)

    I predicted something like this would emerge. As you can see, I have already volunteered to be a defense attorney last month.

    Strange how I got negative rep for it.


    I guess I'll be in this law firm.

    By obvious case and point I agree with the terms of judgment and in fact have said we can only counsel. We can suggest what they may want to bring up and maybe even demonstrate a way to talk such as replacing words with code words as people like to call them such as progress for development and modernization for inevitable. We can say what they need in order to prove a case though we cant necessarily say it is impossible as we have to leave the option open.

    Earthier way though we have been given the go ahead so lets work out a name. We will take suggestions tally some votes and come to a firm name.

    Should be no mans land if I may be so free, the market belongs to no one, not to us(marind bell) nor anyone else. And for it's location, can't there be a new building added, a new place to go to, which really looks like an auction house?

    As regards Kings MB, I see a few issues.
    Firstly not everyone is a citizen of a land and not every land has a king. Therefore, if you happen to have no king, your kind of stuck.
    Secondly, and I don't want to make this sound like a cop out, but the role of king probably shouldn't go beyond the game itself. And many crimes do. There is also the issue of different morale standards and attitude. I could be much more lenient or indeed malevolent than another king.
    There is also the possible situation of two parties from two different lands with moanarchs at odds. Who would hold jurisdiction then? Could the party that is not a citizen of the judge get a fair outcome?

    That being said a dispute between two citizens of one land, could be judged by the relevent king and that could be intersting indeed.
    [/quote]

    Given that it took place in Marind Bell such a King would be Lifeline as he is neutral party in such a matter and it happened within his lands and he has no stakes in such items as would someone from GG would. But this is merely my opinion, but I like the idea non the less.

    Kamisha reacted to I am Bored in Story Test   
    [spoiler]And as I watched, the scene changed, I was now in a cabin… I didn’t know it at the time, but this cabin was made of paper… entirely out of paper, even now I don’t know how this was possible but yet it was there, and as I looked around I noticed a scroll on a desk, glowing, so I walked over to it to examine it. It said I was in a new realm, and that this place was called The Paper Cabin. It said to look around the cabin to find another smaller scroll, so I did and I found it, as I opened it, I saw it changing for it now said to explore the area around the cabin. So I walked outside the cabin and was amazed at what I saw, a huge realm that stretched as far as the eye could see, there seemed to be a path that ran along the edge of a giant cliff, so I walked along it, wanting to find out more about this place, I explored until I had an urge to pull out the scroll, and I found that again it had changed, it now told me to return to the cabin to find a map of the realm, and thinking to myself “A map could be useful”, I did as it said, and returned to the cabin, as I entered, I noticed a map on the wall, and went over and looked at it, it seemed to show 5 lands, Marind Bell in the northeast, Necrovin in the southeast, Golumus Golemicarium in the southwest, Loreroot in the northwest, and No Man’s land, which looked to be in the middle of everything. This map even had the names of what looked like specific places, it was amazing but I wondered how I was supposed to take this map with me, since it was mounted to the wall, so I took out the scroll again, and noticed that it said copy, meaning there was a copy of that map somewhere around here, so again I searched the cabin finding the map I needed in a basket, rolled up in a tube, and thinking it cumbersome in that form, I unrolled it and folded it into a neat square that was much easier to carry around, and by this time I realized that following the directions of the scroll was worth it, I once again unrolled the scroll, and once again it had changed, for it now told me to go back out and continue to explore this new land, and once again I did as it bade me, rolling it up and leaving the cabin to explore this new land. I followed the same bath this time coming to a stop in front of a gate, I tried to pass through it, but found myself unable to pass, stopped by an invisible force, so I decided to go along the left path, I walked along this path and noticed that against the wall that had started at the gate, grew a tree, what’s more it seemed to be growing flowers, then shedding them. Then I looked around and saw a thing blocking my path, I asked what it was and surprisingly, the thing answered, “I am The Path Guardian, I will only fight an honored warrior, for all others, you may not pass.” And seeing that it could easily rip me limb from limb, I left it be, and headed back the way I came, back to the gate, where I took the right path noticing what looked to be a windmill in the distance. After walking for a while I noticed a house, oozing black slime, but by this time I had learned to expect the odd, so I kept my distance from the house, and unfolded my map, it called the place The House of Liquid Dust, and I decided to check my scroll again, it said that I should continue exploring the southern region of the map, so I did, and came upon a place, that had this weird presence around it, as if something lived there, so I took out the scroll, it said that this is where I could recruit creatures, and for me to buy one. So I approached the building, noticing a sign in the ground saying that Aramors, Grasans, and Barren Souls could be bought there, and not knowing what else to do, I said, “I want to buy an Aramor.” And a magnificent creature appeared from within the building, and appeared to go inside me, but at the same time I felt as if I had lost some weight at my waist, it was only then that I noticed the bag hanging there. I looked inside it and saw lots of small silver coins, and as I watched more coins appeared in the bag. Closing the bag again I said I want another Aramor, and another came, and I said another, and it came, but when I said another again, nothing happened, so naturally I took out my scroll and read it. It said I now had 3 creatures, that can be used to fight shades, and other people that I meet in my journey, other fighters, it said I should return to the gates and deal with the any shades I meet on the way, and sure enough, when I turned around to head back up the path, a creature was there, it looked like the black goo that had been oozing out of the house. As I approached it the 3 creatures that had gone into me came out, and somehow I knew what to do, I told them each to do damage to the enemy, and they did! When they had finished off the creature, they went back into me, and I continued along the path, until I got to the house, where there was another one of the things, shades I realized, and again the creatures came out, and again they defeated the shade, but as soon as they were back in me, another appeared, behind me, they came out and killed in, then another appeared, and was killed, and then they went back in me, and I went on down the path, where I encountered another and killed it. I finally reached the gate and took out the scroll, it was blank, I looked up from it and saw a cloaked hooded figure, he reached out, he had a small cube in his hand, I looked back down at the scroll, and there was something on it, it read, “Now the REAL Adventure Begins…” I looked up, the figure was still holding out his hand, with the cube in his palm, as if trying to give it to me, I took it and suddenly seemed to be being pulled into the cube, then everything went black… When I woke up, I was inside a cube, it was empty except for a girl, and 3 candle each of which was lit. Then the girl spoke, “Do you want to play a game?” “What game?” I said, and one of the candles went out, she then asked again, more forcefully, “Do you want to play a game?” this time I said yes, and a broad smile spread over her face, and then we were out of the cube, standing in front of a set of wrought iron gates, and she was saying, “Beware of the Carnival” She looked somehow older, but I couldn’t figure out how, but we went through the gates, as we walked, I asked what that cube was, she didn’t answer, as we walking looking at the scenes of the Carnival, a clown hit me on the head with a toy hammer, and being the good spirited person I am, I took the mallet, and hit the clown back, before tossing the hammer back, with a smile on my face, I continued on, dropping the smile as soon as the clown couldn’t see, and I continued walking, but before long I realized I had lost sight of the girl, so I turned around and walked back the way I came, making sure to keep an eye out for her, I finally ended up back in the little park like place that had a statue in the center of it, it looked like the girl, just quite a bit older, and putting this disturbing sight out of my mind for now, I walked back out the gate I had originally entered the carnival through. I walked along the path until I came to the Gazebo of Equilibrium, where I sat down on the top step of, and started to think about what had just happened, when I noticed a small thing in the ground, a short distance away, as I got closer, I could tell that it looked like a half buried sphere, then a voice rang out, telling me to look where it all began, and thinking that it meant the paper cabin, I returned there, and found a set of papers that said something I didn’t totally understand but I could tell that I was supposed to make the numbers in the middle match the ones at the bottom, there was another paper that said that night shade, a very potent poison, and pure fountain water, which negated the dangerous effects of the nightshade, when combined together with the instrument in willow’s shop, would produce a very useful hallucinogen, I didn’t know where any of these ingredients could be found, so I went back to the sphere like object, and did what the papers said, making the numbers in the middle match those at the bottom, and then the sphere started to glow, and I heard a scream from the direction of the marble dale park, so I ran there and stopped seeing that the statue had vanished, and that there were stairs leading down, I decided to follow them, and had descended what seemed to be about 2 stories, when I reached the bottom of the steps, I continued on down the tunnel, which was lit by torches along the wall, until I got to where the tunnel widened and split, one led on, and the other had a set of stairs, so I took the stairs, and at one point the stairs stopped for a brief distance, where there were 2 statues on either side of the stairs, ignoring them, I continued up, until I came up to 3 doors, 1 of which was locked, another was totally destroyed, and the other was open, so I went through the open door, out onto a wooden bridge and into the center of a cavernous room, it looked like it had no ceiling, and it certainly didn’t have any floor, but I knew that this was The Gazebo of Chaos, and that it was directly below The Gazebo of Equilibrium, and realizing that there wasn’t anything left to do there, I left that room, and went back down the stairs, then I went down the other tunnel, and came out on a ledge about halfway up a cliff, to my left I saw a series of ledges, that appeared to lead up to the top of the cliff, so I moved to the next ledge, but there I noticed a plant and recognized it as a nightshade, I also recalled the scroll back at the cabin, that had said that the nightshade was one of the needed ingredients, I took some and continued my way up the cliff, and after founding a short turn, I noticed that the next ledge was too far away to get to, but then I noticed a rope, and looking up I saw it was attached to a sturdy looking post that was sticking out over the cliff, the post looked like the type a hangman would hang people from, so shaking off that slightly disturbing thought, I climbed up the rope and arrived at the top of the cliff, and a short distance away I noticed something that looked like a one room schoolhouse, and since it was the only thing there I went up to it to see what it was, and as I approached, a voice spoke, again from seemingly everywhere, it said, “Are you here to buy Sun God armor?” wondering what armor was I asked, “What is armor?” the voice responded back, “ if you do not know what armor is then you can not buy it, so go back to wherever you came from, and return only when you know what armor is.” And so I did as it suggested, and left, back through the tunnels, and back into the park, this time I wandered west, and came to a set up stairs, I went up the stairs and looked at the fountain, and a voice rang out, “Are you wanting some pure fountain water?” and remembering that it was an ingredient I needed I said yes, and I had some. I wandered back into the park, and went slightly northeast, and I came to willow’s shop, where I met the first live person I had seen here since I had seen the girl that had vanished, his name was Metal Bunny, who I later came to call Fluffy, we talked for a while and I asked him about the guards that were blocking the entrance to the shop, he said that I would eventually be able to defeat them, but that I was much to weak to be able to right now, so I asked him about the shop I had seen, and what sun guard armor was, smiling he said, “So, you have already solved the Berserker’s challenge? Well equipment it adds permanent stats, and sun god armor is the best armor out there, although many would argue that the medusa set is better, but that doesn’t matter because it will be quite a while until you can afford any of that armor, for now though the only armor you will be able to afford is in Wind’s Sanctuary, but you don’t even have your papers yet! You should go to the Magic Duel Archives, also known as MDA, and get your!” and so I went north east, and passed a boat with simplyzero in it, past Sage’s Keep, past Wind’s Sanctuary, where I turned left, and headed north, past a little cabin, past the fountain of dark vibrations, and I came to a set of gates, and I knew this was MDA, so I went inside, I walked past a grove of trees, and entered the main building, inside I noticed the east side of the building was blocked off, so I headed forward under the set of stairs into the hall of the sun, it was empty, but I noticed a balcony that would be reachable via the stairs I had just passed, making a note to see what’s up there, I headed through the door on the left of where I had entered, and I went down two flights of stairs, ending up at a very ornate door, very much like the one I had seen underground, and just like that door, this door was locked. So I returned back to the hall, and went into the door on the right of where I had entered, this time the stairs led up, but I couldn’t pass through the door at the end, just as before, so I again returned to where I had started, this time returning to the entrance of the building, from there I went up the stairs to the balcony, it wasn’t that unusual, except for the round window that I hadn’t noticed before, descending the stairs again, I headed to the west wing of the archive, and there I finally met someone in this deserted place, he was sitting behind a desk, I walked up to him, he said, “ Welcome to MDA, I see you don’t have your papers yet, would you like them?” “Yes.” And I had my papers, “anything else I can do for you today?” “nope” “good day to you then sir” and I wandered into the room farthest west, the study room, there were desks lining the outside edge of the room, on some of them where books, and unused pieces of parchment. Seeing that there was nothing of interest in there I returned to the main room, and went into the side hall, and went into the first room on the right, there were more bookshelves in there but there was also a spiral staircase leading up to the second floor, where I entered what looked like a bedroom, Marind’s Room, where renavoid typically hung out, there was also a room with a sink, tub, and a cabinet, but no toilet, so I returned back downstairs, and continued down the corridor, and I came to an actual bathroom, I went back out and went out through the back door into the gardens, which were rather extensive, so I decided to go to the closest of the gazzebo’s, the golden globe gazebo, there wasn’t much in there so I went to the lost fountain, and then to the gazzebo of gravitational sound, then the gazebo of silence, and then finally to the broken pattern gazebo, the tiles of the floor seemed to be some sort of puzzle, I tried for a while to solve it but eventually gave up, and walked out of mda, since I had already explored everything there and I went down the path I had been on and came to alche’s alley where there was a bust of alche in a small marble alcove, wondering why that was there, I continued down the path and came upon a huge knator, the knator commander, I called him knatty, and since I couldn’t go any farther, I turned back and headed back down the path to wind’s sanctuary, and went inside the strange building I went over to where it looked like I would be able to buy armor, and I got some very basic armor, I then returned outside, and went to the right, and over a short bridge, where I got an elemental, and a few archers, I then returned to where I had met fluffy, he saw me coming and pointed me out to the person he was talking to, mur, muratus del mur, king manu and murry, where just some of just names, mb told me that he was the creator of this amazing land, and that he had obtained a new server, I didn’t know what that was, but mur said he wanted to do a stress test, and he declared war, our regeneration timers where set to 1 minute, and we all started battling, I got 320,000 xp in a little less that 30 minutes, so now the only thing I had to do was get 8 more wins, as I had gotten many from that brief war, but after about an hour, mur called off the war, declaring the stress test a success, and said we should all go rest, and that my friends, was my first day in md[/spoiler]

    Kamisha got a reaction from Jester in Discussion about reviving MD   
    [quote name='Jester' date='17 February 2010 - 05:18 PM' timestamp='1266448726' post='54652']
    A player trying to revive MD is like trying to revive a person who is drowning by throwing a bucket of water at their face.


    EDIT: To expand on that, I didn't mean players shouldn't try to make the game more fun. I simply meant that MD wouldn't be MD without Mur, and only Mur could "revive" the game.
    [/quote]

    Technically you arnt supposed to critisize but screw it might as well be open. Yes I agree with this though with the removal of RPC's its time to make as many people as possible take action make an event. I simply want to be part of building things. This is a new era if you want to put it that way. Mur has opened a gate and shown how a community makes a game what it is. Though small and shrinking its time for those that have the ability to change things change it and those who dont (myself) make a move to make things change. Jester I am not vetoing your thoughts I am agreeing with you I just say that if MD is to be saved it needs not only mur and I think mur would agree with what I say here though I will not speak for him thats his choice to make.

    Kamisha got a reaction from Tarquinus in Story Test   
    OK this is the thing I was reading the posts when I came upon a very interesting post where Mur himself explained what was going on with MD and the major problems with where we where going and how he really needs to recharge and how the story became so erratic that he eventually had to shut it down.

    This is where I want to pick up the shambles...
    By pick up the shambles I mean you pick up the shambles. I want to see MD revived and im rather sure you want to too. So this is the deal. This has two rewards:
    1) A Wish Point for the winner
    2) 10 silver for the runner up

    The rules:
    Ok quick rundown.
    This will run until April 30th 00:00 server time so I want to see quality work no spelling or grammar errors or some shabby 30 word start of a story.

    *The story must be at least 1000 words long
    *The story must not show an end and must make you want to know what will happen next without giving it away.
    *The story must revolve around MD
    *The story must under all circumstances follow a mechanic of game play I don't want to see any spells being cast that make the world go back to the way things used to be. A problem arises must be solved but in a way MD can solve it not some half assed made up spell. You can use only spells in the wish shop and controlled by special characters and usable items that have been made.
    *The story must finally be based upon something that has happened in the MD world meaning that it must include only real character from MD and must have happened or is happening in the MD world. It cant be something pulled out of a hat it has to have arisen from a real event.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    So that's the run down of it all. The stories will be posted in the forum at the end the best of the stories will be selected by myself and some peers that feel compelled to help. Please send me a PM if you are interested in reviewing in the form or if you really want to catch me in game. Keep in mind though if you are going to be judging you cant wright as you may vote or trade votes with other players to get a reward.

    Have fun and may the best writer win.

    Judges:
    Kamisha (Lead Judge)
    Master (Neutral)
    Phantom Orchid (Loreroot Representative)

    Edit: Opened up fourm to all comments as there seems to be alot of heated discussion about this idea. Removed adventure log target. Changed all the characters having to be real. Changed rewards to Tarquinus specifications added a judge panel list.

    Ok quick rundown.
    This will run until April 30th 00:00 server time so I want to see quality work no spelling or grammar errors or some shabby 30 word start of a story.

    *The story must be at least 1000 words long
    *The story must not show an end and must make you want to know what will happen next without giving it away.
    *The story must revolve around MD
    *The story must under all circumstances follow a mechanic of game play I don't want to see any spells being cast that make the world go back to the way things used to be. A problem arises must be solved but in a way MD can solve it not some half assed made up spell. You can use only spells in the wish shop and controlled by special characters and usable items that have been made.
    *The story must finally be based upon something that has happened in the MD world meaning that it must include only real character from MD and must have happened or is happening in the MD world. It cant be something pulled out of a hat it has to have arisen from a real event.

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    So that's the run down of it all. The stories will be posted in the forum at the end the best of the stories will be selected by myself and some peers that feel compelled to help. Please send me a PM if you are interested in reviewing in the form or if you really want to catch me in game. Keep in mind though if you are going to be judging you cant wright as you may vote or trade votes with other players to get a reward.

    Have fun and may the best writer win.

    Judges:
    Kamisha (Lead Judge)
    Master (Neutral)
    Phantom Orchid (Loreroot Representative)

    Edit: Opened up fourm to all comments as there seems to be alot of heated discussion about this idea. Removed adventure log target. Changed all the characters having to be real. Changed rewards to Tarquinus specifications added a judge panel list.

    Though I am not ready to become a true citizen of loreroot I like to consider my self one. I have to completely agree with Firsanthalas at any rate this is discrimination. Although I do believe it is cheating and I think it has been referred to once or twice in a few posts.

    However by any means I have found there is only one way to compete with people that use a flawed system to there advantage. To put things into perspective in the past and I mean like distant past such a biblical times (if you believe in that) there has been record of in wars that a rule was implied that you cant kill after dark. Continuing you cant even today attack a vehicle carrying injured soldiers that bare the red cross symbol.

    Obviously people go against this and do it anyway. That's why these rules are lifted from the battle fields of countries that are not represented in the embessy. I don't want to employ that the torch competition is anything like this but put into perspective this is a war between the nations.

    We are simply fighting back the way you fought us. Now here we are taking the blame because you guys didn't do your part this time. I mean really its about time somebody took the podium in the same style any of you did. Its simply our turn.

    I would like to put an end to this right now but untill rules of the contest are changed that is not a fact that any of us can make a reality. Not by any means do I see this as an honest victory because quite frankly it isn't. Though if by any thoughts this is only a fair return of your favor.

    That's all I have to say on this matter.

    I guess ill take a shot at this its a bit hard to find pictures labeled other than white out in winnipeg weather but snow and minus 40 is a good combination as the snow crystallizes to cause a cristalic structure. I will let you be the judge of that anyway. I got 2 photos here. I only stopped because any longer and I would be using Voice recognition tech in order to make this message.

    I used photo bucket cause HD photos are huge in a word.

    Oh ya by the way the second one I would like to think of as bob after im done with him:P .

    The activity level in MD is low. People have very little to do beyond training in the GGG or SG. When people are bored [i]en masse[/i] and have nothing better to do, things can get ugly.

    Bread and circuses keep the masses content. Our "bread" is a good economy, conditions for RP, and a generally stable system. The economy seems fine to me. Unbeatable rituals are a bad thing for the system, though the imbalance on the community as a whole is lessened by the health of RP, as far as I can tell. That leaves us with circuses.



    My temporary (maybe permanent) solution is: giving temporary quest pages for free (with LHO approval; this is to prevent questless quest pages), for the duration of a quest only (maybe have a gray "Q" icon instead of gold?). The permanent page would still be unlocked as it currently is.

    This would give people something to occupy themselves with, and would give a nice big boost to the growth of MD.

    Kamisha reacted to Firsanthalas in Recent Events In Md   
    Recent events in MD have left me feeling quite hurt, ashamed and to be honest with a complete sense of despair. I am going to ask you to do something for a moment if you will. I am going to ask you to take off your emotional response hat for a few moments and your ’member of (insert land name here)’ hat too.
    So let’s start at the beginning shall we? A while back there was a torch competition. I urged people in Loreroot to participate on the basis that, well to be quite honest, it seemed to be fizzling out and I thought it would be a good way to get people motivated and interested. And hey, it might have brought some reward for Loreroot, so sue me. I fully expected that if we did quite well, it would result in other lands sitting up and taking notice and in turn increasing activity. Not a bad thing at all I thought. Now we seemed to have gotten people interested. We employed a tactic which subsequently seemed to say the least, unpopular. Now resist the urge to explode with righteous indignation please.
    This ‘tactic’ was noted to be used by other lands. It doesn’t really matter who came up with it, who used it most or even if it was fair. What matters is that it was being used by other lands other than Loreroot. Even if not an official land strategy it was nevertheless in use. At no point previous to this did anyone at all say it was cheating (at least not to my knowledge). So let’s just leave it at the fact that while, unfair perhaps, or dirty even, it was not cheating (or at the absolute very least, nobody said it was and lots of people were doing it).
    Now, we come to a post by Rhaegar congratulating his fellow Lorerootians in winning. I will whole heartedly say that this was an amazingly moronic and potentially insensitive and insulting thing to do. However, he did say that it was not his intention to gloat or insult people and as he also said he did post it in the Loreroot section.
    Regardless, some people took offence to it. Now here it comes. Suddenly Loreroot cheated. A tactic that was not considered or identified as cheating suddenly is cheating. Rhaegar is personally called a cheat. Oddly enough a few people agree that indeed it is not cheating and has been employed by others. Yet Rhaegar remains branded as a cheat. Then it moves further and several people in Loreroot are told that they are cheaters too. In fact to be blunt, it basically descended into all of Loreroot being branded as cheats.
    I would also like to point out a few more things at this juncture. Several people who claimed to have been insulted by Rhaegar’s post had this to say about it “ “. Yup, nothing. Neither on the forum or to me. Now it seems that at this point the good and righteous people of MD (that being everyone that was not one of the evil cheaters in Loreroot) decided that it was good and proper that evil be vanquished.
    In some cases it seems the justification was to hurt Rhaegar for his hurtful comments. This is where it gets intriguing really. After choosing to make no effort to air your hurt, you set about to punish Rhaegar by stomping all over Loreroot and the evil cheaters therein. Yes, you thought so highly of the need to stamp on Rhaegar (one person) you’d walk over everyone else to do so. Now to me that is a bit like carpet bombing a country to teach one person that upset you a lesson, but I digress. In fact, I guess you had no choice in the matter because, let’s face it; I didn’t do anything at all when you spoke to me about it. Oh that’s right isn’t it? Nobody actually did come to me at any point to address any concerns or issues.
    But let’s not get into that shall we? Far be it from me to suggest that anyone actually attempts to communicate. Nope, much better to get out the auld torch and pitchfork and have a good old lynching.
    And so our story leads us to round two. I like to think of this as the burning of the infidels. So, you club together (nice to see you set aside your differences or simply jump on the band wagon) and proceed to do your worst. But wait! They are still at it. I cannot seriously believe my eyes! The evil wrongdoers are at it again. They are now using alts to cheat. The nerve of em! You’d never see anyone else do that. No sir, not on your nelly. Well accept maybe that lad there sitting outside Ravenhold as both him selves at the same time. But actually, that doesn’t matter, cos he is one of us and we are the righteous few. Yes, we shall fight their evil ways by the same token.
    I have to stop here and ask the question, do two wrongs really make a right? If your concern was about cheating, why is it that it was acceptable for anyone other than Loreroot people to cheat? (and for the record do the exact same thing previous to these events, not even as a reaction to them).
    For the record, I don’t agree with cheating. I never asked, implied or approved of anyone cheating. I would always tell people that are cheating to stop and more importantly not to do so in the first place.
    Steps should be taken to stop cheating. I wholeheartedly agree on this. But this was not about cheating. This was about the evil doers in Loreroot cheating. This was, for want of a better word a witch-hunt. Yet another crusade against certain sinners, but not the sin itself.
    I saw people called names. I saw Rhaegar called a cheat. You may call him hot-headed, a moron, hasty, tactless and perhaps lots of things. But to call him a cheat when he actually hasn’t.... Sorry, in my book that is just wrong. I saw someone called a cheat that amusingly enough has never scored or even help to score a point for Loreroot. I personally feel that I have also been branded as a cheat.
    I saw someone that was threatened because they used an alt. They were told to stop or face the consequences (which included having their alt named publicly). I saw a threat where a person was told that seeing as Loreroot was a gang of cheaters, and that we were going to get a dose of our own medicine.

    I’m sorry, but I have really had enough of the self righteous and sanctimonious nonsense that has been flying. The simple truth is that this has not been about cheating. It has been about settling scores and personal grudges. It’s been about one-upmanship and throwing your weight about.
    If it was truly about cheating then why has this not been properly discussed? I have still yet to hear from anyone what exactly is an acceptable or not acceptable use of an alt in the TC. I have not heard any general discussion or agreement on the practice of taking another lands torch.
    You have achieved absolutely nothing constructive in this mess. And yes it is a mess. It’s just bred yet more ill will and hurt.
    Is it not about time that this crap stopped? Is it not about time that instead of flying off the handle at insults (imagined, misinterpreted, real or otherwise) and taking personal issues and grudges to beat people with stops? Is it really really so hard to try to sit down and talk to other people? Is it so hard to identify an issue and try to resolve it without anger and violence and upsetting people? Or is it simply a case that if you have the power (or feel that you have) to do something that you have the right to do so? Are anyone else’s opinions and feelings that unimportant?

    If you have ever been to the temple hall it is time to take a second look and stay tuned. In the eastern lands the is a location as follows.:

    Territory: Lands Of The East
    Coord: 7_templehall_1.

    It used to be a lot easier to get there but things are getting difficult as to enter the temple from the entrance takes a grand total of 200 AP 100AP to walk up what is a seemingly small staircase and another 100AP to open what seems like well oiled though heavy double doors. Obviously something is going to change and the community members that have entered say the same.

    It seems like alot of AP to get into a location with no clickables and nothing to interact with and find a boarder. This is why I am posting this.

    At approximately 00:00 server time mur logged in and posted this as a announcement:

    [2010-02-09 00:09:50 - Alpha 9]
    During Torch Competition you can get very useful additional actionpoints by using the free credits links. Thats very convenient. Even if just clicking the links is enough to get you that actionpoint (and other bonuses), its not always enough for MD. Some of those links require you to enter a confirmation code or to click a voting button. Your votes help MD a lot, and since they are free and its not that hard to actualy vote, please do so and don't just click the links without voting. MD has a much lower rating on topsites that require a verification code and its realy a pitty to send them traffic without actualy getting something in return that will benefit our community. It only shows that other players from other games care more about their game than we do, and they actualy vote not just click links. Comments are also important, good, or bad, just not rubbish. I own some of the places you vote so i get to aprove and see your comments sometimes. Better don't write at all than to copy/paste text you find on the site or just repeat indefenetly same comment. Nobody cares a game is "cool cool cool", show some creativity, it helps a lot.
    Thank you, a lot.

    What most people dont know is there was a large trail showing mur earthier leaving or entering the eastern lands. Usually I like to see developments and some of his new toys (usable items) in action. I was almost there untill I hit the wall or the AP drainer as I will likely call it. So I had to wait but once I entered as the last person there I found it is worth the wait. However there are no changes as of yet I do have evidence of change to come.

    The chat below shows a plan in the future of this location and likely is going to be one of the newer installments. The chat follows:

    [i]Aerrin[/i]: Yup, it says this is my fifth visit here now. It was so much easier to enter this door yesterday, and the day before. I wonder what changed. The view is the same, nothing clickable still.
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Worth it!
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Im heading to the forums for a little till the regen hits. I'll check in from time to time if you want to talk.
    [i]Aerrin[/i]: Haha, I can't imagine why this was worth it to you. Is anything clickable for you? XD
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Worth it for me to say I've been here. That is all.
    [i]Aerrin[/i]: Ah, well, I think I've explored every area I can without breaking through mazes. Chances are, whatever is supposed to be here isn't here yet. Probably should look again later.
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Probably, but I think there was something here at one time.
    [i]Aerrin[/i]: I guess that's possible too. XD Do you see anything different than I do?
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Nope. Nothing clickable for me. Just a bunch of pillars and a blank wall.
    [i]Aerrin[/i]: Well, I might as well leave here then. Very boring place. Not worth the extra 99 ap to enter. >.>
    [i]Aerrin[/i]: Until we meet again.
    [i]Famfrit Flamel[/i]: Meh. Peace man.
    [b]: Muratus del Mur leaves his coat on the floor and places a small cube in front of him
    [i]Muratus del Mur[/i]: Lets see if i can do this... i can't stand borders [/b]

    So that's why I'm posting this I want to see what you might think will happen in this area.

    Kamisha got a reaction from Rendril in Remove Item Owners List   
    My proposal is simple instead of removing the item owners list it would be better to replace it by simply replacing it with a refined system. This system would have the ability to search items by typing in a name of a item. The items would then pop up based on that key word search. The other option would be a drop down box that would show the items. When either of these options are used the owners of the considered item would be displayed below. This would limit the hording as being on the list would only occur when somebody is looking for a item that you possess as well as trading I suspect will actually improve as not only the high item holders are contacted but the people with the correct items are contacted.

    Seeing what is already in use on MD this doesn't seem particularly different to program.

    I would like anybody who does not find this as an except able approach to challenge it within reason and modify it in order to remove any problems.
