Re: Warg Docs

There never in my mind was a debate about whether or not they were successful, to wit, I agree they are and are a lovely piece of writing.

However, for the argument people are more mature than that, sitting behind the camera, you'd like to hope so, but ...

Re: Warg Docs

It was an oversight in the approval and wording of the documentation that could prove an issue for player interpretation not to mention legal standing, so let's all please relax, there's no need for f-bomb rages. It was a minor change, the docs are great, people seem to be having fun with Wargs, so ...

Re: And I thought I was an addict (old SOI stats)

I'm obviously biased, but I'm not sure vilifying dedication and slighting people who liked a particular PC or concept as afraid or pitiful is needed. Many people will not interact with many PCs that have or will exist because of time zone issues, the good/evil split in the PB, or differing interests...

Re: Serious Questions

I never don't give political answers, it's simply who I am. But just because something is political doesn't mean it isn't honest, it's more about the tone than the truth. So, here's some thoughts: - It goes much better for player to staff communication when one comes to it from the perspective that ...

Re: Painting Guidlines

There is code to support this. :D It likes means that the staffer (or builder) who built and described the room forgot, didn't realize this option existed, or didn't see that detail as important as perhaps others. The fact is, describing every such item in a room would get very time consuming for th...

Re: Editing

I'm going to take a stab that's likely to be a complex thing if not impossible, because to my knowledge code doesn't even record in the same way what you do in a editor versus regular commands, like you are literally in a different code mode. What are we editing that is that vital when our PC is in ...

Re: Guess who is 5 today!?

Ah, no his name isn't actually Thor. I did consider it though, lol.

His middle name is indeed from canon though. ;) Which curiously is utilized for a female character though it translates to "Little Prince" in its original language.

No, we aren't going to be returning to full suits of platemail.

Re: Minor Change in how we handle Calories

Food! Glorious Food! As noted by Nimrod, we have recently changed how code handles calories formerly known as "Food Value" behind the scenes. So what does this mean to you? - Until things are switched over, food will have far more calories than it really should. You could junk extra portions, etc of...

Re: a quiet wretched man

Maybe someone just needs to write this poor pink-snaga slave a backstory. Where did he come from? What's his name?

He's obviously only been kept alive because he can read and write and keep proper notes for the glory of the Horde ... uh, I mean Dol Guldur ... or whatever. :?

Re: Buying and selling in Utterby

Arni in the public kitchens buys meat and other foods. You'll need to invest in a token from the main bar to sell him stuff. So, it's likely best to go when you have a few things rather than stopping by to sell him one fish at a time. Otherwise, if you are a hunter or fisherman looking to sell meat,...

The lack of the most badass of characters from The Hobbit was somewhat eased by a new phrase (spoiler!): I concur with this. I'...
