  1. [quote name='Grido' timestamp='1350243357' post='123991'] As has been said several times before; Forum modifications, in this case a new section, need to be messaged to sys-chewett. They will not be done otherwise. [/quote] Was already done, Grido. But if/when we get the response we hope for, we'll need to move this thread. Thanks.
  2. [Mods - if we could get our own subforum under factions, please move this thread. Thanks.] This thread is intended to be the forum for discussion how the newly formed VISION Group is going to bring balance back to the death situation in the realm. We have a fair number of members [17 adepts, 9 supporters, plus me] in this group, I think we need to start doing something. I will lay out my plan first, but this must be a group effort and everything I lay out is just a proposal. Of course I have blinders on and am focussed on what I have and can do. We must think more gloabally. My pl
  3. Vision Group is the working name then. See next thread for working on "the plan". Continue to use this thread for declarations of support etc. [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/13100-the-vision-group-plan/"]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/13100-the-vision-group-plan/[/url]
  4. 1. I really like the idea of progression in the color of your head trophy. Black, Silver, Gold, allowing you to compete and win 3x instead of 1x. 2. Heads is unfair - so why call spell use by power figures "abuse"? Why not say, anything goes....? It's all in how your write the rules. Seems a shame to turn off such an important function for any fight contest in "Magic" Duel. As always I vote for more magic in the realm.
  5. Social action opportunity - on the theory that Protectors help new visitors to the realm. *Peace* says she's about to drop. I just adepted her. We could as a project make sure she doesn't drop. What is the group's opinion on her protectorship? You can still support/befriend this group without adepting me. Right now we're at 16 adepts, 9 supporters, plus me, so the difference between an adept vs. supporter today is nil....
  6. I do NOT want to steal adepts from other MP6's - like Peace. Protectors do a great service for the realm, and should be supported. You can add your voice to this group by declaring your support and friendship, and maintain loyalty to your existing Protector. That's absolutely just as good for raising our voices up to the powers that be. {Conversely, don't waste your adept vote on somebody who is not a candidate - support somebody who really benefits from your adept status! We need more MP6's, and with the active day limit reduced, we should be able to support more
  7. Group Name Suggestion: VISION = Voices In Support of Innocents, Outsiders, and Neophytes This from Junior and I kicking it around. Can we improve on that?
  8. Not sure who stopped you, or with what justification. I'm guessing it has to do with trying to keep our PG rating, so that this website is not blacklisted by concerned parent organizations or countries who take it upon themselves to police moral standards. Mur wants to be sure we are available to everybody.
  9. Quests are good. I hear the creature children's choir in the back room of my hut is having a hard time getting organized..... I may step in on that while making no headway on the death thing. I firmly believe this is the best part of MD. BUT you got to have players, and they got to stick around long enough to find the quests, and not be driven off by -- well, you know ....
  10. Ivorak, I applaud your effort. The problem with death in the realm is that it has seemed so capricious and arbitrary. The victims have no recourse, no idea what happened, why, or what to do about it. Even paying 20 GC seems a temporary solution and a waste of coin, as it will just happen again, and again. Your effort should instill a bit more sense of justice and stability. Perhaps it will keep people from leaving the realm. You should publicize this more. (And thanks everybody for the outpouring of support. All I can take credit for is putting my finger on the issue. We will
  11. Fyrd Argentus (speaking ooc) has been grappling with Death in the realm since the beginning of the Lost Path Adventure. Concerns have increased as players have been killed, and others been demoralized by having no apparent way to recover from this, and left the realm. Always there is the seeming arbitrary power the older characters have over the newcomers. Fyrd has attempted several activities personally to rectify this situation, but it has become clear that a group voice must be raised to address concerns of such magnitude. This thread announces the formation of a GROUP with a common d
  12. How many credits are you offering per gold?
  13. Well, the bad news is - I kind of felt the entries were not worthy of a wish point but didn't want to say that. The judges independently came back to me with that feedback, and were unanimous in their opinion, so no WP will be awarded. Surprisingly, the four judges had such mirror-image opinions of the outliers, with the same entry always in the middle, that the judging is a perfect 3-way tie. I will award choice of 1 gold or 5 credits to each of tankfans, joshdragon, and Paracelsus. Please get in touch. But remember, it ain't over until it's over. Anyone who can help see this thing t
  14. Yes, any point to be made or lesson to be learned has gone very stale. Seig being dead on special occasions is one thing, but being dead indefinitly is bad. Raise the dead.
  15. I don't think any player should be subjected to this humiliation, and leaving Seig dead is damaging to everybody's morale and view of the game. We continue to bleed players who come to believe this is not a nice place to spend time. Enough is enough.
  16. Okay, the judges will be Rumi, Tom Pouce, Innocence, and Chewett. The later two have volunteered in narrow slices of the matter. I will forward the three entries and look for a ranking from the judges. If they agree, we will need not get too complicated.
  17. Judging is based on "artistic merit" per above. Whatever that means to a judge. Warning - the entries are in ugly MD cauldron script code, so a judge will have to be able to interpret that and think about how it would function. We've tentatively got Rumi, Innocence, and Tom Pouce. If we have other qualified volunteers, it could be more than 3 judges. I'll wait a day or so and then send out the submissions.
  18. I promised a wp to the most artistic cauldron recipe, if we had at least 3 entries. Sadly, I don't think any of the three I got really meets the need we have for a revival mechanism integrating the community garden situation and the desire to use my musical tools to effect a revival. Thus, I am off searching for other things to revive the dead -- it has been hard to get refocussed back on this quest. We need to award a wp to one of the three submitters, as advertised, but I need a judging panel. I'm afraid I'm looking through blood-tinted glasses on this, and not giving them a fair hear
  19. Um, is a "learning stone" just a memory stone that has been imprinted with something to learn?
  20. Okay, I'm heading East, pickles in hand. Hope to find you along the way, and perhaps get you all to help with the Lost Path Adventure - much is buried in the Far East. Idling at statue hall door. Having a nice conversation with Eon. His/her dice say "8"
  21. I'll happy to hand out a spicy pickle to anybody trying to get through the MDA gate. Just PM me and go idle in Wind's Sanctuary, and I can pass over a spicy pickle. For new players - I also several limited casts of a nice heal spell, and can help in other ways. I'm happy to answer questions. I generally regain conciousness several times a day - just leave me a note and be patient. That ale is tricky......
  22. I give away stuff as quests (see my [Q] doc or the sign by Wind's Sanctuary), or can be a temporary holding spot. I have a lot of slots now, since my spirit underworld got cleaned out.
  23. Yes, I exagerate to get my point across. My point was, I am more concerned about the lesson others will draw than about the dead-ness itself. Perhaps I did let a little bitterness creep in and what I said was not helpful to my own cause. I was trying to support my team-mate, Tom, by explaining why he was posting as he did. Even though he is newest to MD, and lacks the experience in "politically correct" posting (hence needing some defense), Tom has been the most active solver on the team. He and AmberRune have been great. Yes, mobility/death has not been my limitation on activity durin
  24. Seig, within the game, it's all a game. Even being a super-villain who ignores all rules of civility, which you are not, would be part of the game. The more variety we have around here, the more challenges people have to cope with. They call it role-play for a reason. We are not our characters, as attached as we might be. If you are tired of one role, you can try another one. Are you having fun yet? There have been a few players who stepped outside the game and made it personal (no names) and that's a big no-no. The game and its players do need to be protected against such behaviors
