Chengmingz reacted to Seigheart in Personal Request Month
I would like my items to be given abilities.
Ancient Key - Key to open the Gates of Mur.
Sand Castle - Produces Sand if used with water resource as the description suggests
Broken Heart Figurine - Makes the target cry
Craftsman's Loom - Produces clothing items
Craftsman's Loom (I have two of them) - produces cloth as a resource
Crystal Santa - produces snowflakes at the scene I am currently in
Cursed Diadem - Reduces all my VE to 0 to cast a spell that reduces a target's VP to 0
Cursed Gauntlet - Reduces all my VP to 0 to cast a spell that reduces a target's VE to 0
Elemental Amulet - Creates Essence of Elements... A new resource.
Fishing Net - Catches fish at water scenes! Can be eatable. Effect up to council
Flamberge - Flamberge is a sword with a flameedge. I'd like it to cast Fireball on one person
Ghoul Mask - Cast true invisibility (as a ghoul can do) for a short period of time.
Guardian's Ring - Give the target immense briskness stat points for a short period of time. ( I no longer have any creatures due to giving them up when I left TK so I need a way to produce heat)
Rogue Cloak - Id like this modified so I can mimic someone for 20m, as it should work, not turn into Seigheart.
Shield of the Guardian - Give the target immense defense stat points for a short period of time
Six Triangular Stones - Dice basically, but with six 3 sided dice.
I would like my Tag changed to "Master of Fear" in regards to starting the Day of Fear with the description:
The Master of Fear challenges all minds to face their fears, if they fail, he steals their soul!
If someone fails my challenge, I would like to cast the same spell as Mammon's Book. If they succeed, they get shiney new medal for completing the Day of Fear. If they loose, they get a Badge of Shame (a bad medal) and get Mammons book cast on them.
With that, I would also like to have the ability to create scary items (like my cursed gear, snakes, and etc)
I would also like my Veteran Medal made into Gold.
Chengmingz reacted to Silence Dogood in The Silent Code
It seems to me that the words of silence that is being left over by the great silence spell leaves a trail that is regrettable, for this, I would like to suggest that the spell should be changed, as it is vital to the existence of the people of the realm.
The idea behind this dark yet revolutionary metamorphosis is for the new people of the realm to un-spoil the legendary words.

Chengmingz reacted to ZenTao in Voting Decision by Council
While I have accepted the Counsel's decisions, I do not feel that anyone has the right to say that the votes cast for me were not quality arguments in my favor. For anyone to say this is quite frankly insulting, not only to me but to all the players who voted in my favor. I feel that when casting a community vote we should all be equal in our power of vote, Vets or not and Positive or negative forum status. It is discouraging knowing it does not matter how the majority of the community feels. It's unfortunate that by association I was deemed unfit to do a job I did well. While I do not understand why Counsel gave a reason like " We needed someone who was not a former TK to Lead because of repeated issues in the past" nor do I understand how those "issues" relate to me, I do wonder why they want me to still be involved in the TK. I'm sorry to say my days as a Treasure Keeper are over. It does not mean I will not try to find another home in the LOTE, or that I will stop being active or assist in other ways. In the end I must remember that I was doing this as a way of serving the community and I had fun doing so and I am thankful so many of you believed in me.
Chengmingz reacted to ZenTao in Explanation for Fang's jailing
I looked over the Colorful skulls contest and Seigh said he would sponsor the WP, I asked Seigh several times may I please have my WP and he told me to ask Fang for it. It was not that I could not wait, I had waited a good 2 weeks and never got a thing not even a PM from Samon.. As far as I can see if I had done anything "illegal" why was the last TK head asking me to? I figured if anyone would know the rules it would be Seigh. I feel like I was used and lied to.
Chengmingz reacted to Seigheart in Treasure Keepers Leader Position Applications
I would like to suggest ZenTao.
While she was, initially, my first choice to succeed after me, I ended up choosing Fang because Zen was going through some tough times IRL.
I have asked her if she would be willing to post here, but she won't.
I think the community should see that she is the obvious choice. She was, by far, the most active and involved TK Member, besides myself. She took the time to learn, to suggest new ways of doing things, and seemed to care.
This is the type of person that should be leading the TKs, IMHO;

While I understand that Fang doesn't like this name change, I would like to encourage him to remember to keep his feelings at a halt when basing decisions he makes in the name of the Treasure Keepers. It's not fair of Fang to put an opinion out speaking on the TK's behalf when other members are unaware of it. The way I see it, being a Treasure Keeper does not entitle someone to some higher authority, it's a job in the service of MD and the community and that is it!
Hedge, Child, no offense to either of you, but I don't think you guys would make a suitable TK Leader. You were great members, did your jobs well, but I never got the feeling you were in it to help the community, but for the added benefits. Nothing wrong with that, everyone likes to be paid for their work, but that's the wrong reason to do it.
Chengmingz reacted to ZenTao in Discuss the voting arguments HERE!
I would like to explain a few things here, seeing as people don't know the situation about the role I play in the TK while under both Seigheart and while under Fang and why I was not around during the summer when Seigheart resigned.
First off," My Real Life Issues" composed of me taking care of my Mom in her last few months of life, I don't know how many of you have had the heartbreaking experience of taking care of and watching your parent waste away because of Cancer but I will hope with all my heart and soul you don't have to go through that sort of pain. It's quite possible that some are just so committed to MD that even if someone you love needs you MD would still come first- well I am NOT one of those people, my family comes first.
While under Seighearts Rule, I rewarded quests and sponsored quests I logged everything I did- That's what I did, forgive me if it was such a terrible thing.
Under Fangs rule I rewarded quests, sponsored quests and logged everything I did- again, what does the opinions on past TK leaders have to do with me?
I got out your rewards as fast as I could I did the role I was supposed to do and because I worked under people whom some of you did not like- all of a sudden it's me who is to blame when all I did was a service to the community. I question if this is something anyone would want to do and be treated and thought of in such a way. I don't appreciate being called a Puppet- and it's pretty obvious to me that half of you haven't a clue as to what the TK does or what I do.

[quote name='Rhaegar Targaryen' timestamp='1354109150' post='126723']
I know Lightsage is capable, no matter my negative opinion on his general behavior and system of values, but [b]I will vote for ZenTao.[/b]
My reason? ZenTao is nice as far as I know her, bunch of people mentioned interesting things, but my main reason is that I am voting against Lightsage.
Why against Lightsage? From my experience with him and his acts, he is not trustworthy, not loyal (other than to himself), and he is too ambitious. All that could pass on its own, but there's another huge reason - monopoly of power. Who are his best friends? One of them is Dst.
So if you choose Lightsage, you have a person that controls how the major rewards are distributed, and you have a person that has ran most of the log-checks on who cheated the system as one of his best friends. (not that I want to question Dst's professionalism, but I would still prefer not to put her into that conflict of interests. I don't think Dst will try to manipulate this, as I don't think she wants much in game stuff, but I am afraid she will not do her best to stop Lightsage)
Even that could pass for me (barely) if Mur were active and all the TKs had to do was to watch carefully whom he is rewarding, but in the modern days of MD, we've seen that TKs have a large independent part, full of self-initiated ideas.
For administrative functions to succeed you need to have neutral people who don't have 'best' friends, and a load of people who are monitoring those on administrative functions which by all means shouldn't be good friends with those they are observing. Yes, that is pretty hard under these conditions where you only have some 100 active people.
For the sake of balance of MD powers, pick someone other than Lightsage, otherwise, whenever you would like something to get done you would have to go to a certain faction of players. Players should have very limited and balanced grasp on admin seats.
Remember what Mur said about people not liking Seigheart? That it is a positive attribute for his TK reign, because he is not supposed to be liked.
I'm sorry for sounding offensive towards mentioned people, this was not meant as a flame, I just wanted to honestly portray my opinion on a subject I weigh important for MD.
The BEST analysis I've seen so far in this thread, though some others are great too. Way to go, Rhaegar!
