    I spotted it quite some time ago and it seemed others who I mentioned it to already knew about it, so I don't think it's that big of a spoiler to mention here.

    I also have my own theories on why it's there that I don't wish to share at the moment, but it is indeed an interesting icon to have planted right there as apart of the gate to Necrovion.

    Necrovion rebels are still citizens of the Land, therefore you cannot discriminate.

    As a side note, as you are even younger than me in the land, I hope you are not the one judging the submissions.

    In my experience, if you're truly going to implement an alt character, or a "second" (or even a "third") as I've grown accustomed to calling them, it is absolutely best to not even let on that you are someone else that everyone already knows.

    If you're out to be a new person, [i]be[/i] that new person- why do they have to know you are also so-and-so?

    Be anonymous. Be so anonymous that you even have a separate forum account that is its own entity also.

    I'm sure some are already doing things like this, but it seems the more well-known players are more keen on advertising the fact that they have yet again created someone new to the very heavens themselves instead of getting into a role, picking a path, and letting others around you respond to [i]that[/i] new entity instead of according to their preconceptions of a previous incarnation that may or may not still walk the land.

    Carrying biases over from one account to another is also extremely counter productive, I think. Unless, of course, your plan is to go to the ultimate extreme with it. Another problem is creating a new entity that is naturally at odds with your main/original character. If you create someone new, they should most likely not cross paths at all in any sense, and yes I think that's possible- it would be one of the challenges of playing a new role.

    However, in the end, what I really think should happen is this: There should be no alts/seconds/thirds. You are yourself as you enter into MagicDuel, and you decide where you go and what you do and when you do it. When you want to try something totally new, do you, in real life, get to shed your skin and step into a new one just so you don't lose what you already have? No. You decide if the new thing, whatever it is, is really worth it, and you [i]make sacrifices[/i] to go a new way. This, I feel, is what gives a person, a character, depth and history that is vital to a long-surviving realm such as this. If everyone just creates a new account whenever they want to try this or that out, we are merely left with a land full of shallow, one-dimensional entities that are unable to be learned from without them crossing lines and using knowledge from another account to aide and abet another one.

    Child bearing, in any other setting, could work, I think. But in MD, we are all technically man-made entities within a cube that have somehow garnered a mind of our own, so how can something unnatural commit something so natural as conceiving and giving birth? I think it goes against the ethics and mechanics of the place to be able to cause something like that. Love is possible as you find other entities like unto yourself. Marriage, sure. But I don't feel that, here, you can create something organic from that which is inorganic, unless of course such a thing is yet another mystery in this great land.


    [u]disclaimer[/u]: Before my own opinions arouse any sort of suspicion about myself, I'd like to step outside of things and say, formally, that I will never have any sort of alt (for I'd be a hypocrite if I did, after saying what I have above), or have ever existed previously, in MD. I'm merely another new face in the crowed, and my opinions here are based on my observations thus far in exploring and traveling through MD.

    [quote]However, a citizen shouldn't expect the king to chase them down to check on things. Kings aren't mind readers either. A citizen should approach the king with a land relating project like wish point awards or forming groups that take a name from the land.[/quote]

    The irony, Mya, is that all these things were done before everything went downhill. It was Jester's severe lack of follow-through and inactivity in the land that caused such widespread frustration.


    As for the new rules feature, I think it has potential- not just to make things clear and referenceable, but also as something that will probably become an open record of the land as rules are created as a result of certain events, thus giving it an historical context.

    I do not want to step on anyone's toes, but Aysun started this and now after months of inactivity on it her original thread is closed.

    I do not know what Aysun did or didn't submit, what she did or didn't acquire - but I intend to complete what has been left unfinished.

    Aysun - if you want to contact me to get this finished, please do so...as I have stated to you previously. If you can head it up again, all the better.

    Everyone else - this is everyone's project, I'm just making this thread for the sake of saying what I intend and hopefully then anyone with input can contact me just so we have a hub. I don't know about anyone else but I want to see it finished, and someone has to get off their butt and make it happen, so it might as well be me.

    Lets do it.

    I've already finished October. Anyone with input on Sept, Nov and Dec send me the shizzle. Hopefully we can finally get it done. I know people have been trying to do this for a long time, but please don't give up hope, we will get it sorted as a big ol MD team - I'm not going anywhere, and I will make sure it gets submitted in full - unless Aysun appears to take hold of the project again, which I hope she does.

    My main goal is not to give you 1m personal experience a fight (more like 500-600k though).

    If you haven't noticed, my angiens are not maxed. I am obviously working to get them maxed. Once my angiens are maxed I will go back to my old remain training.

    I make sure to attack all players regardless how long it takes me to get to them.

    Since I have moved up to mp5 I have gotten quite a few pm's from people kindly asking if i could stop attacking them with my angiens. If i have no previous problems with you and your polite then I will usually agree to stop attacking you with them.

    Since I started attacking you back at the GoS I don't recall ever getting a pm from any of you asking me to stop. There were multiple times I saw people refer to me as the devil along with other names. That doesn't exactly get you on my good side.

    This topic has only succeeded in annoying me. I will continue to train as I have been until my angiens are maxed.

    any kind of ritual, either wins or for mere balance. Be
    Win XP with or without. Be rituals to lose XP.

    All we would winning if you come to the [color="#00BFFF"]*party*[/color] and say what is in need.
    All Online players could use a defense that would help you with
    wins / xp for your angiens only if you set them in [color="#00BFFF"]*target dying*[/color] and use some life stealer for XP.

    And the only PM I send to you before, was to try see if you can start some kind of common point of agreement and friendship.

    My main goal is not to give you 1m personal experience a fight (your only getting 500-600k at a time, not 1m). If that was what i was trying to achieve then I would be using my angien/max bird ritual instead of my drach/angien ritual. The drachs are meant to wipe out your tree before my angien could get a hit on it. You started to use regen rits that lasted through my drach attacks which is why you were getting that high amount of experience.

    If you haven't noticed, my angiens are not maxed. I am obviously working to get them maxed. Once my angiens are maxed I will go back to my old remain training.

    Rules and restrictions
    - updated as the game grows -

    *Any repeated complain from multiple unique users will get some kind of unwanted action on you, try not to offend people, or to cause a mess in general

    *Repeated harrassment without reason of other players will not be tolerated. If you have a reason for that, that reason should be discussed with a moderator and if that moderator is unable to solve the issue then put up for voting on the forum. By harrasment we understand constant verbal abuse and moking. Repeated attacks or other ways are not considered punishable harrasment but can be brought up for judging if you think they should.

    so I whant know who else whant to complain about [b]Eon[/b], that keep hunting us down in the most remotes places of game, not let any people do even regeneration rituals, and worse, keep using Angiens to give people 1mil personal xp, when they are using Regeneration.

    @Curiose: Im curious to know how you get SD? I like to fight, not be locked in a sanctuary 12hs all days, just because cant use Regeneration to lose xp and be able to play again in open

    @Tarquinus: Im sorry, fight with 1mil vitality Angiens and full tokened Drachs, is like to fight with 2 mil persians there is no way I know to win.

    What Chewett said +1, especially in the case of nominations.

    But also in the case of awards now that I think of it. There are too many that are similar, when you look at who were the winners. Perhaps it would be better to make previous winners no longer eligible for future awards in the same category, for certain categories, much like the fossil category.

    Certain groups have "in" voting, where they pick who they want to win and thus that person has a much greater chance.

    Popularity contest

    Nominations leave out some quite obvious candidates that should have been there, just because of their shyness.

    Nominations had many candidates in some catagories, giving a greater effect to point 1

    some categories not properly defined, Meaning quite different opinions of what they are actually voting for.

    Im sure i can think of more reasons why MD awards are pointless, But good work to the people who organised it this year.

    OK the first two quotes relate to the third one. Necrocron being ruled by jester does make it jesters land.[/quote]
    No, it makes him caretaker of it. He does not own it.



    [quote]I truly beleve that a land is defined by its ruler.[/quote]
    And you are fully entitled to your personal opinion on the matter, but that does not make it fact.


    [quote]Regardless of who rose novocron out of the ocean it does not matter who they are as they dont have control of it. For example if I where to buy an xbox and I don't use it but lets say my brother where to use it. I own it but I no longer define the games it plays or the time that its used. I simply have lost control in essence it is no longer mine.

    Likewise necrocron is no longer the wizards it is now jesters.[/quote]
    Again, this is very redundant- Jester does not own necrovion.


    [quote]Ok as for betrayal. Regardless of what jester did you are still betraying him plain and simple. An eye for an eye does not makes both of you equal but you still end up as two half blind people. Neither of you are getting that eye back plain and simple. Two wrongs don't make a wright would be a nice way to put it. You both decided to betray each other plain and simple thus they should be treated as separate events.[/quote]
    They both happened at about the same time- how can it possibly be deemed 'different'? I don't think you're fully aware of what's taken place recently....


    [quote]See he is not restricting people he is restricting people from his rewards which he has every right to do. People restrict people that have already won there quest from receiving another WP from them. Think of it like this if it makes it easier to understand.[/quote]

    [quote]P.S. Sry I have a tendency to be abrasive. I just don't see the relevance of what you arguing here. If I don't see a valid point I am going to be brutally honest.

    I'm sorry, but what does you lying have to do with anything? I'm confused. I don't mind, but if you could please just spell 'Necrovion' properly once it might help your credibility a little more. Sorry- I'm just horribly blunt and a bit of a grammar witch.




    I think I've already stated my point clearly enough in the past few posts.


    ==========

    @Kamisha: As of half an hour ago, my citizenship panel read 'Necrovion'. However, in those past few mintues, it suddenly does not. This is a mistake, as the intention of Rebel status is to KEEP citizenship of a land while fighting against the king. Losing citizenship status defeats the purpose.

    No offense, but I'm guessing you're not a native english speaker. What do you natively speak? I might be able to word things better for you if I knew- I'm not trying to be a jerk, but you're consistently getting things mixed up it seems and that's the only reason I can think of for it.

    The Rebels used to be citizens, and were at the time of rebelling, yes. However, check your homeland.

    My oh my, somebody's found a loophole in the code. The whole point of Rebel status is so that rebels may maintain citizenship while protesting the king- finding a way around that isn't going to help you. It's only going to reinstate our status and close up the hole. Thanks for finding it, though.

    I believe if there is to be a formal inquiry into the matter that it will have to be proposed to the council since it will deal with rather important things.

    Also, simply because the rebels do not approve of you as king does not make them any less loyal to the land- You are not Necrovion, Jester. Therefore preventing access to the resources of the land to rebels who oppose you not only hurts the land but is unnecessary punishment against the rebels for simply not liking you.

    She is not discriminating, I am. I am the one that made the rule that Necrovion rebels cannot make quests or receive the codes to make a quest of their own. If you wish to rebel against me, you will not be receiving my assistance.
    [/quote]

    [quote="News log"](regarding rebels) If the decision proves to be abusive or based on no actual reason, the king will get one bad point out of a maximum of four.[/quote]

    This is the most immediate clause I can find regarding unnecessary rebel abuse. The king's rebel queller is there to serve the purpose of thwarting the rebels- cutting them out of things such as quests is unnecessary and could be considered unnecessary abuse against those who fight for a larger issue at hand. Therefore, I ask the quest maker to reconsider on this basis.


    Also, Jester, last time I looked at the rules of Necrovion, there weren't any, so I have no idea where you are claiming such a thing- besides the fact that you cannot possibly stop any of us from making quests if we choose to do so.


    [u]edit for Jester's edit since he didn't want to make a new reply post[/u]: For a policy that is not listed anywhere at all, I feel I was perfectly in the right to inquire about it. I still consider the exclusion of rebels from quests created by its citizens to be unnecessary abuse. Until I see something in the land rules about what you're talking about, I am going to consider this stance the doing of the quest maker. If you yourself make it an official 'policy' as you put it, then I will have to pursue my belief of this being rebel abuse.



    AGAIN since Jester is intent on deleting my posts (which you also so kindly admitted to do in game- thank you, it made a lovely screen cap): Jester, if you wish to make this an official policy, put it into the official land rules in game. I do not see why this is such a difficult request. Until then, anyone excluding rebels from quests will be seen to be doing it out of personal preference and not an order of the king.

    I'm reviving this!

    Miso is EXTREMELY healthy- it can help prevent cancer even! So, try this simple soup out. You've probably had it before!



    Japanese miso soup:

    [u]Ingredients[/u]
    White miso paste obtainable from any and all asian markets
    chives (preferably japanese leeks sliced into thin rings if you can get them)
    medium tofu ([size="1"]prolly cheaper bought at said asian market- organic is 99¢ at mine compared to $6 organic at the standard grocery store [/size])
    3/4 cup of boiling water

    Optional: wet seaweed



    Begin by putting water on to boil- or just filling a measuring cup with 3/4 cup of water and putting it in the microwave for 3 minutes.

    Take out a small bowl that you will take the soup from and put about two generous (not monstrous, mind you) spoonfuls of miso paste directly into the bowl.

    Take the whole, washed chives/japanese leeks and slice them thinly to a quantity that suits your own tastes.

    Take the tofu out of the package and put it sideways to cut from the short side a half inch thick slice from the tofu. Cut this slice into cubes in sizes and shapes of your choosing.

    Remove the boiled water from the stove/microwave, and pour about 3/4 of a cup of the water directly into the bowl containing the two spoonfuls of miso paste. (if you put too much paste in, you might have to add more water)

    Add tofu and chives/leeks to the bowl and stir together, making sure the paste has dissolved well into the hot water.

    Allow to cool for about a minute or so before drinking. The paste elements WILL settle in the bowl between sips, so be sure to stir before you drink.



    Notes:
    When storing the remaining tofu, when you cut the package, you can drain the liquid into the tupperware that you intend to store the tofu in to keep it fresh.

    Japanese leeks are hard to get ahold of, and they are very different from regular leeks. So, if you cannot find japanese negi, chives will work just fine.

    I highly suggest using white (白)miso instead of red(赤)miso for miso soup. White miso and red miso look identical, so you'll have to be mindful of packaging when you buy it- miso paste is very cheap. You cannot make miso paste yourself unless you are a 100 year old japanese great grandmother who lives in the country, so buying it is the only option, even in japan.

    If you use wet seaweed (which will come packaged wet), just take a pinch of it and put it directly into the soup if you use it. You should probably dry off the excess packaging juice before you put it into the soup itself.

    You can always add other things to miso soup- what I've listed here is what's traditionally in it. However, there's no rule stating you can't add anything else, and often times in japan they do add other things, such as mushrooms, sweet fried tofu, and other things as different styles of miso.


    Enjoy!
