Random SOI Thoughts

Post by WildGiller » Wed Jun 04, 2014 11:51 am

I just spent the better part of ten minutes looking for a place to post my random blurts and nonsense. I realized I was looking for one of these threads. So I made one.

Now that this is settled.

Ermegherd >.> reading people talking about bugs has me pressing f5 every 10 minutes hoping I can soon go be cool in the newbie hall.

Would it be terribly indecorous of me to beg someone to post or PM me a newbie shop item list so I can squeal over it?

HMWYBS - Does not guarantee action, but it does let us know you're willing to take what we dish out.

The 'dont kill me' status tells us you wouldn't mind a bit of action, but prefer something a bit more tame.
:?:

Doubt this deserves a new thread, but shouldn't the world respond appropriately to what characters are doing regardless of whether a player wants it to or not? Just a thought.

I think its clever myself. Some people are reallllllly protective of thier PC's and to be 100% fair to staff, GM'ing is ultra politic with different peoples treasured imaginations and personalities, it's good to know how far you can take a thing.

Example:
Omfg your kiln catches on fire! Black smoke! Suffocating! Doom! Run away! Ahh! Your hands are burned now for permanent realz!

Some people would be super butthurt and sad if their negligence wrought uber GM hell down and John the potter who was drunk on the job melted his hands and couldn't potter no more.

Not everyone likes grimdark things to happen.
Not everyone likes tame things to happen.

Personally.. I think I'll set mine at..

Just because you state your desire doesn't mean you'll get it. :D Just like DND or Privacy doesn't mean we won't potentially pop in just to see what you're getting up to. "Please don't kill me" doesn't by any means indicate that we'll adhere to that or prevent it from happening. It just helps us to know at a glance what YOUR desire is.

Okay. That's cool, then.

Checking out the guest lounge window. There is an alarming number of corpses already in game. Another thought: the guest lounge window should redirect to another room if the one it looks at has a corpse or a PC in it.

Also:


Among Decaying Logs On A River Bottom
Exits: east west up southeast

Vigorous rapids stir up the muck and mire of the muddy riverbottom, causing
all of the water to turn shadowy and brackish with the infusion of silt and
dirt. Long forgotten logs decay, wedged between boulders upon the sordid
rivery depths, adding an organic component of decaying pulp and bark to the
miasma's frigid mixture.

The corpse of a scrawny, skittish squirrel with night fur is lying here.

With the amount of waterways that we will no doubt have, would it be possible to have code to make objects wash up onto riverbanks eventually? You know, like that hapless squirrel right there. That might be interesting.

Edit: and yet another funny thing.

A miniature, interested rabbit with dark-grey fur is here.

An interested rabbit? What's it game for, I wonder?

(I'm sorry)

What do you think a rabbit might be interested in?

Orcs' legs.


There are currently 14 inhabitants of Middle-Earth.

Can we go for Middle-earth instead?

You know... what if the MUD isn't down, but it's grown sentient and the maintenance going on right now is because Nimrod and the others are fighting to destroy it before it takes over the world...

I have two forces by my side
One's the truth and one's a lie
Which one's which I cannot tell
This enigma is my hell

What if it was sentient the entire time and Nimrod is a ghost in the machine?

Oh my goodness I can't wait to get in on this! :D
Curse you, social life and prior commitments! The fact that I haven't had a chance to play yet really drives home how many hours I used to spend playing SoI, and how lately I've had to turn to lesser drugs like 'human interaction', which now take up most of that time I used to have free. Yuk.
