Re: Orc RPT

My times are pretty random due to a wonky sleep schedule and a just as wonky mood. I usually manage to pop on in the mornings, but that's not always the case as it's almost 3:30 PM by my time and I'm on right now. Usually I'm asleep at around 6:00 in the evenings, but not necessarily. Might be up ag...

Re: Shadows of Sparville II: Grind, Twinks, and Power Creep

I will just say that I disagree with everything SW said in the first post in this thread. The sparring arena was a waste of my time. I hate the OOC timers and would rather see them removed altogether or made closer to the length of a day. Six or seven RL hours basically claims that you sparred all d...

When's your best RP time?

I'm not promising any plots or anything because I frankly don't have any ideas offhand for what my PC would do other than the usual, but it occurs to me it might help if we post our general best RP times, when we're most likely to be able to log on and do stuff or at least hang out. Maybe if we can ...

Re: Wargs a playable race now?

Wargs have been playable for several months now. Not sure where all of them that were here have gone, but there is at least one IG now. I don't know what requirements they might have, sorry.

Re: Master Crafting Policy - New!

You should make it once per calendar month, not once per 30 days wherever it falls in the calendar. If that means someone submits a craft on March 24th and again on April 12, oh well. They still won't be able to submit another until May. It's easier to keep track if you go by calendar months anyway....

Re: Reasons.

Because my PC's important to her sphere and there's someone I enjoy RPing with. I'm still angry with staff for a certain change they've made and if not for the way she's tied in I'd probably have quit by now.

wearing hoods and skulking in the halls

I'm going to put this bluntly. Stop it. There's no good IC reason to hide your face inside the halls, and no good reason to skulk around the halls. It's one thing if you're wearing a helm that does it. There's no coded way to lift the visor on a cage helm so your face can be seen. Frankly I'd rather...

Re: soap and dyeing

I am once again in disagreement with the staff over the way they have something set up. I hope I manage to express it constructively. I must repeat that the current requirements for running a dyeing craft are utter bunk and this stuff badly needs to be adjusted. We're playing a game, and honestly wh...

Re: The great wishlist

Leave the game (creatures and monsters) alone. You can't say with complete accuracy that people didn't train newbies. Some people just overestimate their prowess, choose to do something dumb or simply get unlucky. As for the troll, it deserved what it got and was going against some of the best equip...

Re: code suggestions re: diagnosing injuries

Not necessarily, though, to both of you. Moderate isn't automatically a fracture at all. Neither is severe. Have seen wounds that are healing and listed as minor or even small still have a fracture. You're right it's not top priority, but I don't think it's an unreasonable request. As you saw from t...

Re: Code adjustment: displaying languages?

Might be neat to have something simulated for languages, but I'd also be good with the usual undecipherable words message even in emotes. a tan-skinned orc with prominent jowls gulps down what seems like half a boar at once and snarls something in a language you cannot decipher.
