Utterby Life - Signs! & Other Things

I figured I would kick off a thread for citizens of Utterby in which we chat about things we'd like to see / think are a good idea. For example - I have noticed that besides stores, the only way used to mark locations is generally a log dragged to some spot or the other with some words carved into i...

Smelting Metals

Hi there Elder Staff! I've noticed that the smelting craft tree presented here lists eleven smelting crafts to forge various metal ingots. Among these are gold, tin, bronze, etc. I was wondering if any ores other than iron are in fact in the game world currently, or if these crafts will be useful on...

Re: How Do We Do This Thing?

As a new player (It has been almost one RL month since I joined) who has played a substantial amount, I agree with Eugene that more players is a good thing. Yes, there's a quantity vs. quality argument to be made, but I can't imagine that there aren't hundreds of talented RP'ers out there who would ...

Gear Guide

Heya Staff, I was wondering if there was a plan to include a basic gear guide in the wiki. A page that discusses (From a newbie perspective) all the locations on your body gear can go, and the various modifiers armor and weapons can have. For example, tunic / gambeson / hauberk, what stiff / segment...

I can't connect, is it just me or is the game down?

Re: How Do We Do This Thing?

I think some clarity might help us address your points better, Songweaver. Here are the issues I pulled out of your post, organized by category. General: More options (Crafting? Combat? Economics?) General: Better systems (Specifically which systems?) RP: More staff-run clans RP: Cohesive plot / IG ...

MUD Contest - Vote for SoI!

Recently I've been promoting Shadows of Isildur on reddit in the rpg gamers reddit, both with a post about MUD's in general as well as in response to players looking for immersive roleplaying games. Now I'm expanding that to the Let's MUD! contest on /r/mud . What is the Contest? : The contest is a ...

Economics

Question : What's the long term plan for how the economy functions in the game, code wise? Will VNPC towns be tied into the player economy? Why Should SOI Care? : I played EVE Online for years, an MMO based purely in sandbox gameplay. The economy / crafting was incredibly deep, and that added a HUG...

Palantir

Heya, first off I want to say I'm having a ton of fun! All the admins and staff have been really helpful to a newbie to MUD's like myself, and I've racked up days in-game in just the past couple weeks. My question is mainly about Palantir, but more broadly the wiki. Having used the Way Back Machine ...

Re: Non-Roleplaying Commands & Character

Thanks all! I would have tested it by creating a new character name, but I was unsure if doing so would erase my old character as he hadn't been approved yet. Now I know that if you have two characters OR if you have a character denied (Mine was for a capitalization error) you can see the stable. Ap...

Re: Non-Roleplaying Commands & Character

Bri, Eltanim, thanks so much for your speedy aid! If I see either of you in game and am somehow not broke I'll buy you an ale in the tavern!

Non-Roleplaying Commands & Character (Solved)

Hey folks, two questions from a brand new player for the vets and staff. First is that on the wiki there's a very helpful guide to roleplaying commands, but as far as I can tell no guide on regular commands to move, attack, craft, or anything else. As I've never played a MUD before I'm completely un...

VPN IP's Blocked (Nevermind - Solved)

Hey all, I'm new to the community, having only found it a few days ago. After some research and reading what wiki pages there are I decided to jump in and start character creation. The issue seems to be that every time I try to connect via the VPN I always use, seemingly regardless of what server I ...
