Re: How Do We Do This Thing?

I think my comments may well be taken wrong, but here goes. I'm not worried about seeing only a few PCs online at any given time. SoI, during the time I played it, never had huge numbers except on nights of major RPts, when people who generally are not on at the same time or generally only log in f...

Re: Nimrod

In my time knowing and working with Nimrod I've come to learn he's one of the hardest working individuals I know, and one of the most pleasant to be around. There are no politics or hidden agendas with Nim. Unfortunately, this game is seeing a great loss in his departure as an Elder Staff member and...

Re: The Badguy Sphere, Mixing Races?

Realistically, as Icarus mentions, we want races which play nice together - or at the very least have some kind of reason to be in one place together. That pretty much rules out wights, abominations, wargs, or spiders if we want to build on one sphere or outpost. Why would it rule those out? As SW ...

Re: The Badguy Sphere, Mixing Races?

This crossed my mind not long ago as well. Like Krelm says there's a certain charm to playing an orc, but it's not for everyone. I don't think the game's ready for PC wargs and spiders yet, but I think humans would be fun. That said multi-racial evil spheres usually work best when there's a big enou...

Re: Utterby Wish List

More housing! More inn rooms or cottages or something. PCs not having housing and places for personal belongings is seriously affecting certain skillset-oriented players. Not just woodworkers or tailors, but cooks too. With player housing (cabins or cottages or huts with hearths) people can cook at...

Re: Orcish Sphere Declining?

Hi folks, Sorry that it has taken some time for me to get around to this thread. There are some important concerns raised here that we will be looking very carefully at.

Re: ROE and YOU

Good feedback so far, thanks folks! I do think new players can benefit from some kind of information - not rules - but probably something closer to guidelines or suggestions. I've played and adminned here for over 10 years, and RoE has always been a controversial topic - the bottom line is that we w...

Re: Craft lists?

Taurgalas is being modest - she spearheaded a great deal of these, and continues to hold the crown for craft queen!

On a more awesome note, I had no idea we had so many crafts. That's cool!

Re: Relative Location of Locations

Had to search for the post... It says the Splintered Tusk's territory "borders with the Vadok Ushtarak to the east", which sounds like it would actually be to the west of Vadok Mal sharing its eastern border. I don't know enough about the tribes' territories to add that information to the map. Hey ...

Re: Opinions on a Character Page Wiki

Mordor forums used to have a "Who to know" thread which kept this kind of information, updated by a player who'd edit the master list, then simply submitted by players themselves if they wanted to be included. That said, something like this will never fully be up to date, and new players referring t...
