    Good idea, it would be nice to see more items to use in those slots. That could simply be extra stats, rings are considered valuable and sometimes 'powerful' items so it would make sense to give them less combat related stats like energetic immunity and briskness, or possibly boosts to resource related skills. While one might not protect you like a shield it could possibly increase your defense while lowering your attack among other variations, or just be all normal positive values but I think that's less unique and fun. I would prefer it to go the other route, causing specific mechanics to change while equipped such as allowing access to a scene for a set amount of uses before breaking or needing to be recharged. The possibilities are there but it would be nice to see a list of things that could be done and decide which ones are viable from that point on, then allow for some customization.
  2. No the problem occurred with more than just the tokens you have given me from that santa
  3. When using vial of token essences some of them have trouble applying properly to the creatures. Watching the popup box in the triggers when applying the tokens it didn't seem any problems occurred but when checking the creatures page it is obvious, certain creatures affected can no longer load the portrait correctly on the creature page (loads fine in the create ritual page though) as seen here. somewhat similar to http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/18042-html-crit-inventory-page-bug/ The issue being that these tokens have no effects in battle, exhibited below. I'm not sure which tokens have this problem or the consistency but I have several different creatures from several different types of tokens that have become useless.
  4. "this role, in its current form, isnt needed in MD. That it may become more important in the future but for now it shouldn't be something that time is spent on managing and distributing tools for. Most agreed that it would be better to move them all to shared role based titles, so people who belonged to the land could become it as needed." I'll just echo this statement, very few times have the tools been used to ban a player and I see only one location that is perhaps in need of a guardian, which is the candy boxes since there is so few of those to take. The role isn't necessary to spend admin time on, maybe in the future with more players it could be useful to have more guardians. Automating obtaining the role in some way would be the best result for it in my opinion as stated and this would also take care of the inactive guardians.
  5. I have a similar issue, certain creatures with a broken token applied to them are not loading on the HTML 5 creature page (loads on flash) as seen: firefox browser These broken [] tokens were applied with gelled tokens, and I have several creatures that have this issue currently. The tokens have no effects in battle.
  6. I'd like to see more rainbow candy types added, particularly one that uses the language flask system that made you speak in a different language. Possibly ones that would add small amounts of stats to your profile similarly to how land/alliance bonuses work, for a short time. One for exploring points. One that can add a temporary bonus to one of your principles, or preferably permanently remove some of your principle points. Now personally I'd love to be able to use that nice golden avatar Sushi drew for me 💀
  7. I'd like to refute your presumptuous claims a bit, I know you think highly of yourself dst but thinking doesn't make things true. Now you're here essentially arguing in favor of continuing the AL as it would be common sense while simultaneously telling people they can't do anything and I assume by upvotes agreeing with subverting the process of (patiently, I might add) returning the altars back to a functional state through the actions of people within the AL, so consistency out the window now. I'd suggest you either relearn about the MD community or learn to be less critical. Currently there is a pm group of people that had some very interesting input on the AL of late and while they might not be taking it ingame so much it is at least something. 70% of all statistics are made up, I don't see where the 95% came from, most players seem rather engaged when they say something and we see Nava at least trying to get some activity going among others like Aia who rallied for the Eclipse back. I'm sure some amount of bragging is always going to happen but I don't think it is a rampant issue, a lot of players have achieved good things through real effort and we still see a lot of it today, take the Gateway Island guardians as an example or the Necrovion Death Patrol. Now maybe we can get back on topic a bit, I'd still like to see more action rather than a complaint. In fact I have an idea that I am mulling over and might post soon.
  8. Currently I agree that the altars not being functional is a bit excessive as that takes away a large portion of the combat system, being unable to recruit further and sacrifice creatures that you've been training being the main issues. If any character needs to lose heat I have had a heat loss ritual set consistently for a while now, and I'm rather active so I can help you build a combo ritual if you want. On one side I see how it can be annoying without the altars, but on the other I see some emphasis on player interactions as far as heat loss goes and further for wanting players to band together to fix the altars. I'm conflicted as on an individual level worse things have happened to players in the name of roleplay, although I don't agree with detriments as opposed to benefits to emphasize activity/effort. I would be more open to the altars being broken if we were shown why or if it was mentioned in the Adventure Log in some way, as it hasn't been yet. I'm open to seeing where it goes and for that reason I don't agree on any punishment towards the organizers, I'm just glad we have more of the AL to read as it has been years since the last edition. ______ As for the community aspect, I have really yet to see any sort of ingame activity in regards to the AL.There was the eclipse where the old man showed up in some sort of support for Aia and that is nice but somewhat unrelated as the eclipse effort has been long awaited if rather renewed lately. The old man has also appeared around Necrovion I guess. I went into Necrovion myself and offered blood but I was on a side mission really, to help Fang Archbane, so my character (not that I roleplay much, he's kinda just me...) really has yet to see any sort of AL happenings as I was not around during the blood service. We had the PM conversation related to the AL, but I dislike confining these subjects to PMs which will remain hidden. I much prefer these topics to be discussed openly so we can all see and look back on them, hopefully learning something in the future. Much like these topics: ^Somewhat unrelated, and rather related: So if people want my (and others) thoughts and opinions I request you would make dedicated topics such as these so we can all input openly. Now I really must agree that we should bring these things ingame whenever possible, talk to eachother ingame and try to create events to make more things move forward. The forum is a good resource but shouldn't replace the game, and I suppose vice versa.

    Consider you may end up betraying those that give you your 'power'

    Proclamation after proclamation.. I'd love to see evidence or perhaps effort for why you think these things. I could probably prove you wrong on half of them, and don't get me wrong I'm not trying to prove you wrong. Simply claiming a role has been met with denial in the past. Be careful when what you say suggests others don't have their own freedom. Cool scene.
  11. Well not your death, but consider that you won't have any copies of you running around passing on your genes. Often the older members of a species take on 'caretaker' roles for the babies while the younger fitter members go out and do that foraging stuff, to make the ant analogy this could be like the ants who protect the queen and care for the larvae but I think those are dedicated roles and not based upon age. Basically, you end up with a different role to suit the needs of the colony rather than what is the basic role (reproduction) although with the diverse society we live in that role can end up being anything really.
  12. I've had an ant farm before and I think they do it mostly to clear up space. Most animals don't have an understanding of death save some rather intelligent ones like elephants who grieve for their dead. Obviously the pheromones are signalling to take an object to the burial spot, just in this case the object happens to be itself. Most animals role in life can be summed up to about two things, eat and reproduce. In a tribal species like ours the reproduction can serve to fulfill the eating aspect as the more children you have the more potential they will bring back some food for you. Nowadays though with agricultural related advancements it is not always necessary to reproduce as much as you can in order to ensure your species, or your own, survival. With overpopulation being a real threat set to occur at around 12 billion people there is some key questions we need to be asking ourselves before we get to that point. Being dead as an alive individual could be summed up to genetic death, the inability to reproduce. The chromosomes of your ancestors have been passing themselves along for millions/billions of years and as soon as you don't do that you are the first of your line not to.

    Thanks, between this and Fang's phoenix I'm not sure which I like more, I guess it isn't a contest. Your skills are great.
  14. Which badge are you ridding us of? yours

      Penguins are such fascinating creatures! 🐧

  16. looks fine to me :p is there a description we can see?
  17. uh, not that I ever tested those, but weren't they supposed to be so that users with less than 5 casts (considering 5 out of 8 as normal) of a spell could enchant their spell onto the tablet, the use would be the same as regular spell stones
  18. out of most if not all of these that I gathered for ledah (as in, ledah gathered some too) on mallos besides the 30 or so morlecid ended up stealing... It was definitely me that suggested to Ledah that we could hold the heads together, Ledah was sitting in deathwhisper gathering loyalty and it seemed like a good idea at the time. I suppose we didn't need to keep the extras, but idk, didn't seem such an issue to me at the time, although I was looking for mrf to give them back to him, he was very much offline, and I didn't want to abuse my heads powers ah yes, to answer your question pipstickz, no we didnt use all of these heads so in theory no I did not use those heads
  19. I gave the heads back to MRF at one point when I was able to find him. (paid someone to do it actually)
  20. Downvoted due to choice of altars... although I guess it makes sense. I sacrificed fal in golemus because by some random turn of events most of mallos' principles ended up being GG principles... not that im going to start explaining my votes the only one i picked willingly was time
  21. 3 to 4 being because all the other ppl have up to 2? and they never got the crown, so i try to logically guess 3 or maybe 4 is more suitable and it was your Kdoc you know >.< I wonder if Sunfire has any right to any points by now??
  22. boredom not a reason to torment... tactfulness is something I've been trying to learn maybe you should too

    1. Pipstickz

      Pipstickz

      Maybe you should apologize.

    2. Mallos

      Mallos

      I'm sorry Pipstickz

  23. So uh hey guys and gals and goats I got a joke for you all today: A little old dwarf, 18 angiens and a tutorial shade walk into a dome... How many exit is up to you TKs.
