  1. Ok so my post was removed due "role-playing elements" that apperantly should not be there. My bad, I guess. So here is my very bland re-posting.

    My RL demands my attention sadly. I have sick mother, I am not of perfect helth yet either and basicaly I am working my behind off so at this time I saldy dont have much time to play.

    But if I am needed, I can be reached and I do plan to return as soon as I will realy be able to. I dont want to log in game for idk two days and then be away for two weeks, if you get my point.

    I would wish to remain in CoE if that is possible, but if space is what you need, well... you can kick me out, I guess, since my rl ordeal.

    And btw grats to Amorab for becoming a Sybil. A well deserved spot, I believe.

  2. Soooooo... let me first say HELLO ALL!
    Now grab a drink and something for the sweet-tooth, please. :D

    Anyhow, I am back... at this moment only on board. I have no idea if anybody of you here remebers me or not (I know I am not so remebarable so no fault on your side ;I ) but still, I feel I should explain a bit where and why I dissapeared for so long... (If you just came for drinks and cookies you are free to leave now, no hard feelings :D )

    Anyhow, after all the buissnes things I had to take care for I got extremly sick and was actualy on my death-bed (couldnt eat for about a month, was able only to drink but was dehidrayted over the limits, wasnt even able to get out from the bed due to physical exastion and pain etc etc). Anyhow, to make things short at the end they dragged me into hospital and it was, well more or less last minute. After they discovered that I got pneumonia (due to my laying in the bed unable to move etc) they did some further tests and disovered a 10x8x5 cm growth on my ovary. They decided it must go out (naturally) and it should be a standard operation but when they opened me they were in for a disgusting surprise because I had numerous little growths all around my abdomen sticking onto more or less everything and on spleen and so on, so it turned out to be 6 hours long operation with me having only about 5% chance to survive. Wont go in all gory details of it... Anyhow, that was just a bit before New Year. Just last week I had the second and last operation and I got out of hospital just yesterday (with my tummy looking like a battlefield :( ). Anyhow, basicaly I am just happy to be alive and almost ok now...just need to take better care for me in future.

    So thats one of the reasons why I was away for so long, the second one was, as I said work.

    But now I would like to return, if you ladies and gentlemans would take ma back...

    And well, lets for the sake of discussion saaaaay that you do... and advice please: Should I start totaly anew or pull one of my chars from the closet? Oo

    Anyhow, how have you been??? Missed you all.

    *hugs and kisses*

    Post Scriptum: Sorry for all my spelling mistakes... been awhile... :S

  5. [i]Well, I figure this is the topic for this then... ok, here we go:[/i]

    I can't count anymore how many games I played in last 10 years, but it was a lot and none could compare to this one as it challenges your mind, imagination, perception, creativity and so forth.
    MagicDuel is a little world in its own, full of mystery and puzzles to crack and dabble your mind into, some implemented in the game and others run by players itself. Yes, you can set up your own quest and let others to solve it or try to solve one that was put up by others.
    It seems white&black at first start but sooner than later, when moving around and looking at the wonderful artworks, you will fill in the colors with your own perception.
    A community of helpful, interesting, witty and fun people spark everything up, might it be with casual conversation or a role-play; a community with diverse age-span as much as diverse in character. You soon find yourself walking in friendly neighborhood where you know everyone and everyone knows you.
    A character creation like no where else allowing you to be what you want to be, might it be a talking cat, a walking plant or anything else. It is upon you to forge your character with working on personal pages and playing it over the world, you might even get your very special role in the world, a challenge worth taking.
    Different alliances for different characters or people, from those who cherish simple life amiss the trees to neutral ones across to those who dabble into dark. You can become one of them or you can walk as independent one, it is your choice.
    A unique fighting system where won fights mean as much as lost ones, with fighting rituals for you to figure out and test, creatures to collect, train and level.
    You can choose to role-play or fight or even both, there is no limitation.
    Updates upon updates are done as MagicDuel is still evolving and you can even hear from the one who is working on it. The first game that I have seen that happen.
    All in all, this is a good game where you can actually learn things instead of mindless click&slash, a game where you actually can find role-playing and furthermore, it really is free to play which is much different than most of so-called-free-to-play-games out on the market.

    Yes, how could I possibly defeat the 4 of you with my max Drachorn ritual and 60 alliance seats? MDA is even more pathetic, a few archivists and a single legend speaker. Face it, if a main land wanted to take a neutral one by force you couldn't do anything about it unless you got a different main land to help you.

    However neutral lands aren't there to be taken over, they have a set purpose. If there were alliances to take over they would have to be part of one of the 4 main lands.

    There are two legend speakers now as from yesterday, if I am not mistaken, but that's not the point here

    I completely agree with last two sentences.


    My way of looking at neutral lands could be completely off, but still... I see them as a place where people from any alliance, friendly or enemy one, could gather and "mingle". A place of entertainment, trade, information-gathering etc. In times of wars, it could even be a place where the opposing sides would gather and conduct diplomatic discussions as the ground would be neutral. Further-more, it should be a hub of craftsmen, service providers of all sorts, places of culture etc.
    Besides of that, there are people out there who would like to be a part of guild, if that is the word, but wouldn't want to be involved into military affairs. Neutral lands can or do provide that.

    But again, that is my way of thinking and I could be completely wrong in perceiving what they are.

    A bit off-topic:
    If "we" would have need for a land that would be free to taking and holding until another alliance wouldn't take it over, which could actually be interesting perhaps, then it should be completely new area, Badlands of sort if you wish, with one or maybe just few scenes true which you would progress as in you start at the gates, break defenses and so on until you reach the "throne". Actually, something like the "King of The Hill" could be done, maybe once per month on specific day and hour, a sort of siege? Just a thought...

  8. Considering the vp needed for angiens and later ve that they need for evolving I believe these new setting dont affect a newby player whatsoever. Besides, as some stated, there are ways of raising ap. And, a newby should be focused on other things than getting the strongest crits possible, angien should in a way be holy-grail instead of "a bit better aramor". If its harder now to get to some areas, well, thats good. It makes them a bit more special. If informations are not given out on silver plater, why would acceses to lands be. And if alliance members have a bit of advantage over non-alliance ones now, well, I find that good also considering that there are also negative effects from it. And on the other hand, it is good if newby learnes to "slow-pace", gives more time to actualy think of what you are doing, why you are doing it and how you will do it. Anyhow, I believe the changes are good. I might be wrong, but thats on time to show.

  10. So well, here we go again...
    RL is totally annoying thing (Wouldn't be nice if we could just...um...ban RL sometimes?)
    [img]http://catgasm.com/wp-content/gallery/catgasm-lolcats/Funny Cat Photo039.gif[/img]
    Sadly nothing can be done atm, well, at least sad for me. So, I will again be away for some days, probably a week (defidefinitelying it woulwouldn'tmore than that or that it would be way less). Those of you who might worry, please dontdon'tthing on grand scale going on I will just be computerless and few other minor thingies skulking around. So, you wont see me around ( Some of you might be happy of that, but guess what! I will be back, bwahahaha, lol!) but well, as I already said, I will be back as soon as possible.
    So basibasicallywill be gone for some time after Thursday 25th or Friday 26th, not precisely know yet but after one of those days for sure.

    Anyhow, I will miss you all. Have fun!


  11. While looking around, I stumbled upon this, and I think it is beautiful:

    In A Dark Time by Theodore Roethke
    [quote]In a dark time, the eye begins to see,
    I meet my shadow in the deepening shade;
    I hear my echo in the echoing wood--
    A lord of nature weeping to a tree,
    I live between the heron and the wren,
    Beasts of the hill and serpents of the den.

    What's madness but nobility of soul
    At odds with circumstance? The day's on fire!
    I know the purity of pure despair,
    My shadow pinned against a sweating wall,
    That place among the rocks--is it a cave,
    Or winding path? The edge is what I have.

    A steady storm of correspondences!
    A night flowing with birds, a ragged moon,
    And in broad day the midnight come again!
    A man goes far to find out what he is--
    Death of the self in a long, tearless night,
    All natural shapes blazing unnatural light.

    Dark,dark my light, and darker my desire.
    My soul, like some heat-maddened summer fly,
    Keeps buzzing at the sill. Which I is I?
    A fallen man, I climb out of my fear.
    The mind enters itself, and God the mind,
    And one is One, free in the tearing wind. [/quote]

    [i]And another just for a good mesurment...[/i]

    Grief by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    [quote]I tell you hopeless grief is passionless,
    That only men incredulous of despair,
    Half-taught in anguish, through the midnight air
    Beat upward to God's throne in loud access
    Of shrieking and reproach. Full desertness
    In souls, as countries, lieth silent-bare
    Under the blanching, vertical eye-glare
    Of the absolute heavens. Deep-hearted man, express
    Grief for thy dead in silence like to death—
    Most like a monumental statue set
    In everlasting watch and moveless woe
    Till itself crumble to the dust beneath.
    Touch it; the marble eyelids are not wet;
    If it could weep, it could arise and go. [/quote]

  12. I did not know you in the times when you did all that as you say, some cant forget but this post shall not be of it.

    From the moment we meet in game you were kind and helpful. After we started to talk over yim you became even more helpful and you have basicaly gave me much larger insight into MD matters than any (not that otherd didnt help with it). I am grateful for that. Furthermore, I cheerish the fact that you told me straight away what you did in your past on MD and I believe that you know that I never judged you upon it. I told you my opinion of you and I told just the same to anybody that asked.

    I enjoyed our talks, if they were md based or not, funny or philosophical and I for sure will miss those chits-chars for sure, heck, I already am. I wish it would have lasted longer, but wishes rearly became truth...

    I sincerly hope that your rl situation solves out to best outcome and that I will hear from you again. If we realy never will chat again, then I wish you all the best and I thank you for everything.


  13. Hmm... Seriously... hmm... I believe I will have to undust the old brains of mine and do some researching myself instead of assuming.
    Anyhow, I just wanted to say thank you, this should help me to not fall into the same or if I am in it, at least climb out.


  14. Noes! *insert a sob*
    Dont leave us! Who will do the burnings and other deliciously nasty things that you do?

    But on completely serious side, I realy wish that you would reconsider and decide to bear up with us. But well, if at the end you realy decide to leave, I do wish you all the good things and the nice things in life.

    [size="1"]Btw. Can I have your room and just like... everything? [b]*insert devilish giggeling face of three-eyed mosquito*[/b] (just kidding, realy :P )[/size]

  15. Finally found time to read Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown to see what the fuss was about back then when it came out. Actualy I expected more out of it, but wasnt bad either. Now I want to get hands on Digital Fortress. Not so long ago I was consumed by Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

    Other than that, Sherlock Holmes of A.C. Doyle , love everything of Edgar Alan Poe, Tolkiens Lord of the rings (before the movies came out), Harry Potter is a fun to read [i](altrough I was completely blocking it in times where people were frenzy about it)[/i], Agatha Cristie works are nice to pass time with, read some of Star Wars and so on and on with a dozen of things from my country.

    Either way, fun is something you make yourself, stop whining.


    How we think helps also... Instead of loging onto the game saying something in the lines "Time for another boring day in MD", say to yourself "Today I am going to have fun!".

  17. Today I just feel as saying few good things about few good people around... so I will do it...

    [i][u]Amoran[/u] : Helpful and nice and wity. I like to chat with her as she or tells me something I didnt know before and usualy cheers me up when we "speak", just because, as I said, she is nice. Love our art-related chats also. All in all, a great person.
    Chad[/u] : Funny as hell if he chooses so, and helpful. He makes me laugh almost every time. Has brains in there somewhere also, and a good ones also.

    [u]Adam [/u]: One of the best out there. Helpful and kind, funny and so on. Great person to chat with.[/i]

    [b]Anyhow, there is definetly more of you out there that I find witty and great even if I didnt listed you here right now, I might on some other day when my mind isnt so flooded with gazillion of thoughts.

    You are all unique and that is definetly something good.[/b]

  18. Oooh, I love Runaway Train. :P

    As for good old ones:



    and of course, [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-nSCb9MnPM"]Michale Jackson - Thriller[/url] [i](first song I remeber hearing when I was a kid. Got me interested in zombies, lol)[/i]
