General Off Topic Board

I was wondering if the staff would consider adding in an off topic board to the forums. A place where we can shoot the shit and play forum games without mentioning the game as is or discussing it. I think Soi is suffering from a forum board that goes weeks at a time without a post which deters lurke...

Status of Warcraft

Whats going on with this? I haven't really gone through all the trouble of reading newsletters to see if warcraft has or has not been implemented?

What can we do so far? Whats the benefit? What problems are there? Has this feature been forgotten about?

The return of the forum

I'm just curious when the public forum might return? Considering if this mud will ever achieve over 5 active players at a time it would require the forum to open again.

Re: Trust

Does anyone remember power in old soi? It was a stat you couldn't improve and rpp got you more of it. The whole point of power was to make those with it untouchable.

Re: Trust

I agree with something said earlier. (I think it was Nimrod) They said that special roles should be basically be considered RPA's limited to single (N)PCs. These are story tellers, or plot devices. These would not be true pc's they shouldn't have motivations for owning shops, building wealth, gainin...

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

I'd actually argue that by soloing bears/boars/wargs for skill gains you are being more of a recluse and not interacting with ANYONE. AT least a spar needs one other person (if you remove the stupid sparring npc the guard gets.) On a side note, I find that real sparring is more consistent with skill...

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

My suggestion's not a punishment. It's pretty standard procedure when moving from ALPHA to BETA of a game, actually, to PWIPE. Since I doubt a pwipe's going to happen, knocking those gear/skill levels down to levels so that new Laketown characters can actually compete (which is necessary for the su...

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

I pretty much agree. Though I've never personally hit adroit in any skill. I've always felt at a slight disadvantage because I know others who have twinked out are way stronger. I think the number one problem is 'legacy' pc's. Pc's get strong and they just never die. This was kinda a problem in aton...

You, like all of staff, have access to the legacy Admin Area documentation from SOI that we used quite often. You know, the one that contains documentation for rset, helms, masks (you made masks once IIRC and we got the info from that), and amidst all that documentation is indeed all the needed stu...

Wow didn't even know dunedain were a thing. Just another 'special' role along with a dwarf running about the human sphere. Sounds a bit off to me.

My PC is currently visiting Rohan collecting his warhorse. You think you are joking but I tried pretty hard to get myself a mount for one of my special request.

Wow Icarus was the best of the staff. He was helpful and he actually tried to listen. More than a few times he showed up in the Gl to talk about stuff and the direction of the game. For a while I thought Icarus ran the game till the other day I learned Nimrod did. (maybe this was the problem.) Anywa...

Tehkory hit on a point..what is Laketown suppose to change? All of its clans are still NPC run. I've seen the layout, cool alright. The only difference is an under-docks area that is 'suppose' to allow for a criminal element to exist. Watch what happens either 1. No pc's take over and staff have to ...

Without weapons and armor you can't go outside and get invo...
