  1. The point, I believe, is that you're really supposed to take the role of ONE character and stick with it, baggage and history and all. If you do a reset, or do experiments, or take another role for any reason, etc. you must keep the roles absolutely isolated from one another. You're not supposed to use any sort of unintended aspects of the computer system, ie stepping outside the game, to influence the game. That said, there are a billion fuzzy grey situations that arise, and many people push the limits and find new ways to raise questions. If you find a new one, you'll becom
  2. My back enterance access is working fine, yet it is offered to me again in the shop.
  3. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1358446216' post='130832'] I would like the ability to summon people to Angiens Shrine. It would have 4 casts (unable to be put onto a stone). Only able to cast on one person. The caster must be standing at angiens shrine for the spell to work. This is because we now have access yet we cannot yet easily bring players so that we can talk to members there. All adjustments to the spell are welcome, since it is a powerful summoning spell i have detailed the numerous limitations in an attempt to balance the item. I would ask pla
  4. Sorry, not really interested in coins or credits. And this is not an auction, not a fire sale.
  5. Yeah, that's what they are called, Anniversary Aramors.
  6. These tired old bones are weary of the fight. So I'm entertaining offers on my tired old (read: experienced) army, to a good leader that will protect the realm, etc. etc. You know the mantra. On the block: A set of 4 imps, moderately tokened, all claw II. A 2011 Imp, no tokens A 2012 Imp, no tokens On the block to MB citizens only: A set of 3 Angiens, moderately tokened, all claw I A set of 2 heretics and 2 bloodpacts, moderately tokened, all claw II What do I want? I'll enter negotiations for weird and rare creatures (yes morphs, lord no on the drachs! You can
  7. Selfish wishes only? 1. A tablet of paper that lets me spawn very specific items - documents - which have written on them whatever I put. Why? I could have SOOOO much fun with it. Documents should also have a specified number of "uses" (reads) before they are destroyed. Ideal if the writer specifies that number. Possibly a title line freely read. (the "document" could also describe itself as being an oragami figure....) 2. The other 3 out of 4 of my magical musical instruments. Why? It resolves inconsistencies in my back story, by which I made these instrument
  8. I would put more tools into the hands of players, ultimately delegating all powers including bug fix and coding and everything the secret council does, and new scene creating and everyting. Turn it loose. Kings and Queens with real power. Anarchy and thrills galore. And people feeling empowered instead of under the thumb of a bureacratic authority that is overwhelmed to the point of non-action except on trivial but emotional things.... Put in place mechanisms to make codable items, and code them. Spell creation. New clickie creation. No more rules except those set by the PLAYERS with p
  9. The effort seems to be flagging. Or maybe I'm just getting old and tired. Thanks for all the verbal support, but we need some energy behind actions. Shall we try to make the items? Find somebody who can code? Set up a formal petition? Or go on ignoring death as a force in the realm?
  10. I ran up and down the tunnel, and the viscosity stayed at +40. Looks like a bug to me. It is behaving as expected in MB. I am UG citizen, and have enough loyalty the viscosity doesn't affect me....
  11. You also get spells when you become a protector (MP6) or LHO. Oh, and one more thing - part of the game is figuring out the rules. And then they change - which is also part of the game. Take it as a (fun) challenge, and remember that the hardcoded documentation is very, very obsolete -- not to be trusted.
  12. Dark, something like that ought to get posted. I could suggest a number places. Then you just need to reply with a link when it comes up... Merlin, most of us are happy to answer questions -- when you can find us. Just remember half the game is exploring for yourself. Well, not half, but.....
  13. [quote name='Rasiel' timestamp='1352388294' post='125249'] I know it's hard but just because someone is mean to you doesn't mean you should act the same to them, I understand when someone is being rude to you you have a very strong impulse to be rude right back, but that only continues the viscous cycle and ends up making topics that started out with some sort of point into mindless attack threads. the recent example would be Fang's thread. I believe a lot of the people here are at least 18+ ,now i could be wrong but, i think we can all be a little more
  14. [color="#cccccc"]Ann. 2419 - [2012-11-06 22:39:34 - Stage 11][/color] In light of recent, and not so recent, events we decided to make something clear - no current position, role based or otherwise, is above death and we shall not be making it otherwise unless this drastically changes. Odd.... I hope I am just being paranoid in regards my effort to balance the tactical "death" events that are occuring with increasingly greater frequency and annoyance to those involved. I presume this is a reference to the "death" of a game role - organization - such as the Kings,
  15. You should just try asking me for spicy pickles..... I hope you plan to use them, not horde them..... there is a limit to how many can exist.
  16. All fixed and working well. Thank you!
  17. Other spells are NOT case sensitive -- I just tested give vitality. Locate is not case sensitive to trigger it - but the changed case seems to mess up the string matches.
  18. Okay, more info. If you ask for somebody who doesn't exist you get: ---------------------------------- Locating [b]xyzplayer[/b] ... [b]Unable to trace xyzplayer, your skill in this spell might be insufficient or the target is nowhere to be found.[/b] -------------------------------------------- Notice that the spell words do not show up in the above note. The spell does work for me now -- but I find it is [u][i]case sensitive in the spell words [/i][/u]but NOT case sensitive to the player name, and when it chokes on case sensitivity of the spell words is when it repeats back th
  19. spell words are "Send a firefly after" player is "Esmaralda" This did used to work, and it does trigger the little side box for a report, so it knows it's supposed to do a locate spell. I've rebooted my computer but not purged cookies -- I figured if it gets this far, it's not a problem with my cookies.
  20. Fyrd Argentus continues to be unable to cast the locate spell. Someone seems to have reset my spell words since I first posted on the forum about this issue. Reciting the words got chat, of course. [Oh - they also gave me 48 casts to bug test, I guess. Thanks!] I set up the words again, checked who was around not idle, and tried again like 5 minutes ago..... I got: [font=Times New Roman]Locating [b]send a firefly after Esmaralda[/b] ... [b]Unable to trace send a firefly after Esmaralda, your skill in this spell might be insufficient or the target is nowhere to be found.[/b] [
  21. Okay, I was first searching for blitzmole, a new MP3, who it turned out was trapped in GG and eventually teleported out. I understand teleportation can mess things up. Uncertain. To test the spell, I then tried it on magistra, then Magistra, who was sitting right there orange in Wind's Sanctuary - and doesn't move around a lot. So I burned 3 casts. Is it WORKING for anybody else, before I test more?
  22. I'm looking at the person, spelling it right, the result is it says finding this person is beyond my skill to find. I tried person A with unknown place, person B I could see using all lower case, person B again with the right capitalizations. I've recently rebooted, and not been on through the top of an hour yet. Something's broken.
  23. Acksan, not sure what you're looking for. Lots of people would willing to step forward and help if you give more detail what you need. I created several quests before I could do clickies - can easily be done. I even have some alts just to act as sign posts if needed. Award 3 wp's and you can get a quest page from the Librarian. I'm not sure who can give you wp codes to assign these days -- no kings -- all I can offer is wp's off codes already put in my assignment allocation. Get 3 wp's yourself and can you can buy that clickie edit ability.
  24. So, to confirm the plan.... Our goal is to raise enough credibilty to cause Mur and Company to hardcode a handful of items for use with the dead. I'd count it successful if those items became shared resources, reset each Tuesday, provided this group has some control over who can pick them up. Step 1 is decide on the number and function of those items. Step 2 is to give physical form to those items Step 3 is raising our voice in petition to Mur and Company. I'd be thrilled if these items followed the pattern set out in my backstory, but that's just one option.
  25. Evidently the revive function exists in MDscript - if that's what is used to code items. (I can only code clickies, and there is no revive function told to us there...) I have a sense that there is going to have to be some high-level intervention on behalf of the group for even that much to be realized. The rest may well fall into the catagory of "new ideas" that would have to be implemented on deeper coding level. But heck, we have to ask or none of this will happen.
