    I meant it's not very efficient, i dislike the occasional 'you are not in this scene' and loading times there's also the thing that you go out of your way, in a way, to get different resources like bark and ore (when you can simply get the herb basket and stay in GG)

    Mixed feelings. Gotta be strong. This is how I think most people will gather resources now: before, you'd get 3 pickaxes, get to the quarry and swing them, coming back every 10 mins and making sure you don't deplete or go under the land's (determined) number; you needed someone to enforce that, but you could time your gathering with a fair estimation now, you have to get tools for the resources specific for that land; on one hand, it binds you to a land (not gonna mine in GG and go for bark in LR), on the other, it diversifies your gathering (can't mine ore only, also getting tools w
  3. Hmm...since I still have plushies left, I'd like 2x avatar tokens 2x acoustic remains sps 1x silvertongue sps That's 50+14+10=74 plushies!
  4. Not wanting to make another topic: I was thinking of another last stage for the LR archer, the Loreroot champion. This choice would be done at Hunter's Lodge, with the sacrifice of personal skills as cost. The Loreroot champion is not a defender of Loreroot the traditional way, nor a hunter of beasts anymore, but a fighter in the arena.
  5. By force of habit (and a few hiccups), I managed to finish reading the book I started 5 months ago. I browsed the list of herbs I made in the process and wanted to write another 'flora of', but I have doubts about the proper place of each plant. I would like to talk about this, here or in-game. For now, we are dealing with 19 herbs, drawn crudely by myself. The gith, for example, would belong to Golemus, but I can also see it in Marind Bell. The anabasis is 90% GG, but I feel I keep pushing very similar plants on the shores of Golemus. Perhaps the slopes of NML, after exiting th
  6. i was thinking of an achievement only force of habit is too descriptive while being perfectly true
  7. Even if I'm closing it with no submissions, I have to tell you the subject is fascinating. The 'western' imagery is so influenced by this (actually defined is the right word) that if you manage to read on it, and get at the core, you'll certainly be blown away. So read if you have the opportunity!
  8. Still some days left, but I'm not holding my breath. (the subject itself is quite interesting, but the research is probably a pain )
  9. Posted this in mood panel a couple days ago, thought someone was playing with the scenes. I used the A25 tools to see if something was written wrong, but I couldn't see anything.
  10. Because of the excitement caused by yesterday's find, I am making a quest rewarded with a WP! The find is different from the topic of this thread, but it started there...in ''European'' demonology, there are six types of demons. The uppermost demons inhabit an area known as the ‘fiery’ (diapyron), the second category the ‘airy’ (aerion), the third the ‘earthly’ (chthonion), the fourth the ‘watery’ (fresh and salt: hydraion and enalion), the fifth the ‘sub-earthly’ (hypochthonion) and the sixth the ‘light-hating and insensible’ (misophaes and dysaisthêton). What I want you to do is re
  11. As I begin to write this, I had a glimpse of Akasha's topic about spam...well, whatever. For me, this year was better than last year. I bounced back with new goals, resolve, peace of mind. Last year it was kind of a new low. I hear it's been really bad for others, and my mind is slightly conflicted. A part of me wants to help - the moronic part. The more intelligent one (the one always at the edge of despair) is rationally pointing out how you can't actually help someone, take their burden, straighten out their path. I'm beginning to be more of a 'not my problem' kind of guy. Bu
  12. Maybe a mini-story for the island? meeting the ferryman or someone, who then leaves you to the guardians and whatnot
  13. In our lives there are plenty creations of the mind that make us suffer or heal us just as much as physical contact with the physical world. Now, in MD they are called creatures and are supposed to be mastered and used in 'duels' with other minds, and mastering them starts with the fundamental issue of obtaining/knowing the name of the creature. However, in this topic I want to bring into focus the possibility of change. One creation that has divergent paths around MagicDuel is the angien, a dual creature which seems to represent different things. Now, I like giving this example found in
  14. Then, what about that Chinese saying? was it ancient trolling?! hope you're well as well and may we play in a more populated MD sometime soon.
  15. now that i think about it, the story with the cube and the little girl was a hell of an intro. it was building a lot of suspense, while the island is quite peaceful by comparison what if we add the elements of a crisis there? like, aramors being assembled by unknown entities, boarding ships to who knows where; or, the island being enshrouded in a 'cloud of viscosity' with each passing day, threatening to become occult from the mainland or something
  16. I wanted to come out with part 2 of MB's flora, but plans are for the conceited. Glasswort would suggest a plant that looks like glass - translucent and bright. In fact, glasswort takes its name from the use people had for it for centuries or maybe even millennia - as a source of soda ash for glassmaking. Since it tolerates salt water well, you can often find glasswort near the sea - or in it. Edible and having plenty of salt already, glasswort is also called pickleweed. Because its leaves are atrophied to fleshy scales and because the two opposite leaves form a sheath around the st
  17. After browsing various forums, I decided this is the best one to hold my topic, mostly because it seems Rumi tried to bring some botanical knowledge into MD just as I would (I don't know Rumi, though). This text is not focused on the community garden. However, it's directed at the same kind of people that would get involved in the creation of a garden, hence the choice of place. Botanical knowledge, I think, is just another layer that can be added to MD, even if the core refers to introspection and exploration of the mind. I think the creation of self has a lot to do with what surrounds u
  18. Got an interesting one, so I'll share it, but I'm closing this anyway.
  19. Well, it was too short a time, but I don't think it would've made much of a difference. Star gazing is particular, so...I'm closing this. If you do try it out, though, leave a message here.
  20. I kept asking myself what I had to do in MD yesterday and today and now I know. But since I forgot, all I did was collecting water...
  21. I think to write a really dark story, you need those very dark wrong feelings that depression gives you (coupled with the dark wrong ideas that you can't refute because of, perhaps, lack on information). Without those, can you write a dark story? I think a horror one is possible, but not a dark one. I'll try my hand at it now, to validate that. All improv, with some 10 minutes thinking beforehand. Peace moved like the breeze on the dusty plains, with sorrowful excitement on her face. A kind melancholy travelled thought her veins at the thought of decorating Necrovion with yet another addi
  22. This is between me and you, but...the Aramory and other various places in MagicDuel are NOT ''places'' or ''structures''. They live!...Like, we're those unevolved species to them, and they consider themselves superior beings. They probably feed off our energy (heat) or something, and they probably use some drugs to alter our behavior and make us docile - or at the very least, oblivious to their true nature, you know...I don't know what can be done about it as long as we're here playing, but it's a war of the worlds and you'd better believe it!
  23. Can't edit, so...shmsh for the first two places and 2 g for the third.
  24. (the post will be updated with rewards tomorrow, as I have to check a few things and I can't concentrate on doing it now) (This is a two-step contest, step two will begin after all submissions are made.) First and foremost, you'll have to take a picture of the night sky in your area, so that all those twinkling stars are visible. Next, you either print it or work on it on your computer, but what you'll do is draw your own 12 constellations, creating whatever bizarre formations you want. After all, what are constellations if not asterisms with a story? Once those 12 are finished, you'
