Re: So very very thirsty!

I might also as a general suggestion consider buying small-ale or another beverage besides water IC for better thirst-quenching potential. Things besides water indeed have benefits. :D

Come one and come all who have an interest in the martial arts, rumor holds that Tinwion, the Elven emigre of Utterby is to teach a lesson on archery or other martial arts depending on the interest of those who arrive to attend.

Re: Gypsies?

First, let me say that it's a term not intended to be offensive or derisive as utilized by SOI staff. It indeed is a term long utilized in game though previously in a different context. I fear I don't have links to previous Wikis for that context, as they were since closed/removed. In roleplay, from...

Re: Is anybody playing?

There are many times when I am "up top" where folks will login notify, wait what seems like 30 seconds, and logoff. Two minutes later, someone else ...

Now that I've gotten my life somewhat together, I'd like to organize an autumn festival - featuring the usual festival favorites with merchants, fortune telling, etc. I'm also looking at a potential RPT contest/event or some more crafts: Kayles (medieval bowling) Tug-O-War Capture the Flag Log Tossi...

Re: Festival RPT

Unfortunately, the festival met up with RL spring break so I'm out of town for a bit with family and such.

So, the fest might be a bit late this year, but we'll definitely have one soon. :)

If you have any ideas, send in a ticket, we'll see what we can do.

Unfortunately, no, the coded archers aren't really perfect, and they tend to be a bit overzealous. So their behavior isn't really realistic.

Re: Using Shops to Sell to Players

One of the reasons for encouraging against non license straight coin sales was to have a balance against the idea that an interaction with another player is only as good as the direct immediate result in producing coin. But some deeper and potentially more meaningful interactions. If you want to hir...

Orc numbers are low at the moment, but I definitely have seen some RP and get togethers even in duos at the moment. So you are definitely invited to remake and rejoin us.

Re: *crickets*

I'd say that a common enough thing is folks login, petition, don't see anyone (or anyone they like :lol: ) and logout.

Perhaps return to weekly pRPT times (which staff might indeed pop by/arrange to be available for) to coordinate logins?
