Re: RPA presence, pbase activity

PC activity cannot be shown to correlate to STAFF activity. Sorry, I respectfully have to disagree here. I cannot show any citations. But I like to think that my perception regarding online mudding is fairly well versed, and from personal experience as a player, staffer, and player again...that RPA ...

Re: RPA presence, pbase activity

My biggest 'complaint' if I was to list one... Is that everytime Nim pops on the scene, things then seem to speed up, get entertaining, get populated.... ...and then something RL comes up, and we dwindle down slowly to a point where there's a couple people logging in.. ...and then rinse repeat. How ...

Re: RPA presence, pbase activity

I hear all this Nim, and I don't really disagree in theory. But there are ways to plug the gaps. From what I can tell, we actually have active staffers who want to get out there and do things to improve the play and retain/grow playerbase. From my perspective, they are not empowered to do very much ...

Re: RPA presence, pbase activity

simply put, player activity is directly proportional to RPA presence. Period. First off, let me quote this as an absolute truth in my experience with SoI. I don't really know how to continue with this topic and actually stay on topic. But I'll do my best. I agree with SMCA on many points, but reall...

Hi all, Was wondering if we could discuss the creation of travel objects. These are basically object with a room prog. People can enter them and log off in a safe place, similar to tent code. They can also be picked up and carried to a new location, moving the people with them. These are great for m...

re: Real's Fishing Question

Pretty sure at one time there was a basic cast-line craft, which was open to everyone.

Could at some point learn to Fish after failing the craft enough times. Seems someone thought the system no good, and took out the cast line craft, so now you only can cast pole-line with the actual fishing skill.

Re: Crafts and Hiding

Here's the thing about hiding/crafting.. We had a long convo on the discord about 'safe areas for new pcs'. To you know, craft and explore and stuff outside of town. This might not be so much an issue Utterby side, but orc side, it definitely is. As a newish character with low skills, you absolutely...

Re: RPP Proposal

The general idea is that the RPP cost is sort of high in order to prevent 'untrustworthy sorts' from abusing the privilege. Won't naysay the concerns, but rather, I think the benefits outweigh them. 1. a populated sphere with anchor pcs that keep new players that roll in satisfied that they are not ...

Re: RPP Proposal

I know its not for everyone, but... I'd like to see an option to purchase a 2nd pc in the opposite sphere. 3rpp or whatever cost, lets you play a basic 0rpp pc in opposing sphere. Why do I think this is a good idea? We do have a limited playerbase, and players will typically play where there's activ...

Re: RPP Proposal

"Pwipe Rawr!"

"RPP purge Yeehaw!"

*logs in once and never returns*

While I don't really care, the thought of a pwipe and rpp purge to mollify people who don't play currently seems silly.

Sage's Life Post (and status updates)

Hiya, Just wanted to say thanks to Sage for offering some insight into the status of staff. I think it's been fairly noticeable from a players perspective that things have 'died down' staff side, at least from the initial boom of activity that came with the original 'revival'. One of the things that...

Oi, Unique opportunities abound in Utterby right now. One of which lies with the Bastards of Girion. Based out of the 'Hrid' galley, moored to the docks of Utterby, the Bastards are a loose clan of mercenaries, gypsies, sailors, drunks, brawlers, and outcasts (with a couple of nice folk for good mea...

Hi,

Just wondering whats been going on with in-game message boards?

Seems some boards have been completely cleared, others are in a state of 'deployment', and the warcraft boards also cleared and no longer being reported to by the strongholds?

Any info available?
