A tall golden robot says, motioning northwards,
"For this meeting, I'd like to move us all in to the north."
Someone says,
"Yes, yes, come in, that's it."

A tall golden robot says, holding up a gleaming silver sphere,
"Thanks for coming everyone. If you're not familiar with the
amphitheater, you need this to talk. We'll start with a few intros, a
few announcements and then open it up for questions."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"For anyone that doesn't know me, I'm Nimrod."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl curtseys.

A tall golden robot says, motioning to a flaxen-haired, braided-haired
girl,
"This is our lovely Frigga, Elder Staffer."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt materializes before your eyes.

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt barks.

A tall golden robot says, looking around,
"And the big eagle is Meneldor. Another Elder Staffer."

A tall golden robot says, ruffling a brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt's
ears,
"And this is Grommit. Our lovely coder."

A tall golden robot says, motioning to a cheery, average-length-haired
female teen,
"This is Rishte. One of our newest and brightest builders."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt tells a cheery, average-length-haired
female teen,
"Poke poke."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to a bloody big eagle,
"Ah, there's Meneldor."

A bloody big eagle materializes before your eyes.

A bloody big eagle waves.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Aight... a few announcements."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl goes over to stand on some frozen
ice, seeming more at ease.
A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Wargs will be a playable race in the next two or three days. Thanks to
Grommit for his fixes to the armor and natural attack damage."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt nods.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"This meeting will be limited to 90 minutes, btw, and will be fairly laid
back."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The major thing that I wanted to announce was the opening up of
player-run clans. We're moving forward with several right now and will
continue to support new ones as they come in. We've been working hard to
provide you with a suite of tools to help you so you no longer need to
rely on staff for everything."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Some tools include, player controlled paymasters that allow you to hire,
fire, set pay and bonuses for your employees."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The npc buying agent is now controllable by shop. We can control how
much each shop sells to virtual npcs."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Feel free to try it out."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl exclaims, in a frigid, frosty tone
like Frigga,
"Hello!"

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl exclaims, in a frigid, frosty tone
like Frigga,
"Yay!"

A tall golden robot smiles.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl claps.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"There is no cost to play a warg, though you will be required to have 3
rpp or by special invitation."

A bloody big eagle leaves in a flash south.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"There are several other minor tools that will allow players to make new
and neat things as well. The new plating system allows cooks to create a
limitless number of dishes."

A bloody big eagle arrives from the south.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"This actually made me rather excited, as it's freed me up to work on
other things, like tasty bacon rather than figuring out all the
different variables to create something like "fish and chips" as a
plate. As I don't need to - you simply can make the fish and make the
chips and put them on the plate using Nim's nifty system, or stuff them
in a trencher and make a po'boy I guess."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl chuckles.

A tall golden robot says, nodding,
"I'm looking forward to seeing our first Philly in-game."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"If, at any time, you have a question, feel free to petition."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"It allows players to have freedom to combine foods while we get to make
sure we aren't creating recipes that make this provincal Rhovanion
sphere seem like TGI Fridays."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"I'm looking forward to seeing some Philly in game too."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt looks around for Taurgalas and
whimpers.

A tall golden robot says, nodding to a flaxen-haired, over-bitten elderly
man,
"The question was about special invitation. We are always willing to
entertain special requests from players, more so from higher-rpp
players. If we feel that you would do well in a specific situation, we
may reach out and ask if you are willing. At times it's the respected
player that reaches out to us and we are willing to discuss the options."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to a loping, muscular woman,
"Wargs would be your main character. Not a side character. You may only
play one character at a time."

A tall golden robot looks at a brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt and smirks.

A tall golden robot chuckles.

A tall golden robot tells a long-limbed, rolling-gaited young woman, with a
metallic lilt,
"There will be stat differences between races, yes."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The bonuses to wargs are yet to be determined."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"As Nimrod explains, sometimes higher RPP invidiuals present ideas and
work with staff to develop one off concepts for PC roles and
backgrounds. We handle things thusly because allowing folks to wholesale
develop concepts extensively without working with staff didn't work. We
don't advertise it, because it encourages driven individuals to inquire
rather than it being a given."

A tall golden robot nods to a flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Because with RPP or not, a role is an application, it is not a guarantee
or a contract for you to be granted that role or that race. It is, in
the end, a request for consideration. Thus - asking directly is another
way of doing so."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt holds a suit of steel warg scale
armor and whistles innocently.

A tall golden robot says, looking to a brown-furred, cheese-loving
mutt, nodding sadly,
"We miss our beloved Taurgalas. She has been absent due to some real life
circumstances beyond her control. Right now, on the player port it is
just Frigga, Meneldor and myself."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Sorry, it might not be clear that I'm a total jokster. That's not a hint
and I"ll keep quiet now."

A tall golden robot says, smirking at a brown-furred, cheese-loving
mutt,
"You cause more trouble."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt nods to a tall golden robot.

A tall golden robot says, nodding,
"Wargs will have their own clan, they may, or may not work with orcs. It
depends on the players. Yes, wargs will be mountable, but once again,
that's up to the player."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"The best way to contact staff to begin developing a concept is to open a
support ticket. Having a general idea of a concept to put forth there is
a good start, otherwise, a general inquiry about potential roles needed
or open in your area of choice."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Folks, Nim meant Warg-related Q's first, then the more general ones will
be opened up next."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to an aquiline-nosed, green-eyed
man,
"Wargs will have their own language, and it is possible that they may be
able to communicate with other species."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"We're getting a flood of specific questions. This is meant to be a
general meeting for the most part, in which we discuss general concepts
and news. Forgive me if we don't answer every single question."

A tall golden robot says, motioning to a thin-lipped, thin-legged female
teen,
"One of our players has written a significant amount of warg
documentation, which we plan on using with a few minor tweaks."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Madhatter: Dwarves, Elves."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt asks,
"Greeneskye, we mentioned that wargs will be mountable, is that your
question?"

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"We'll implement something for you like opening and closing your group to
prevent unsolicited mount attempts (hur hur)."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt asks,
"Frig can you answer when the warg doc will be out or are we waiting on
Nimrod's bio?"

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Okay... so we're going to move on from Wargs. Please post any further
questions you may have to the forums."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"It already exists as a command to buck a rider."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"You guys can roll vs stats / skills ooc like old tyme DnDers. can't
imagine the situation happening enough to need extensive code support
otherwise."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"But if it does, I'll do it of seniors ask."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"If*."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I'm not sure 100 percent, but given that it's already written in the
most part, it just needs looking over."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt nods.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Moving on."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The Citadel is completely built and ready to be occupied. Warcraft is
within a few weeks of being ready for initial stages of deployment to
players. I plan on expansion of the warcraft progs to allow further
actions after we roll out and test the basics."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"I'm attuned to that stuff Krelm and will make sure any code changes are
sensible. It would make sense for the mountee to tire whether PC or NPC."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"But I'm typing behind the times. Shutting up to Nim/Frig's moving on
from wargs."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The delivery system and virtual animation systems."

A stringy, long-haired male youth paces in from the south.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"All seem to be working well and you'll hopefully see these used more by
staff as we get into the groove. They will allow us to interact with
everyone, no matter their time zone."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"As I noted on the forums, it was unfortunate that the staffer who was
tasked earlier with working on yon great Utterby expansion project
simply, and literally disappeared one day and was never heard from
again. So ... it has gotten pushed back far longer than I certainly
wanted. But - I've been working to open up new shops and kind of
introduce the expansion in a subtle way, including a room that I wrote
at work that apparently lost it's description."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But - the next big thing I'm looking to develop there will be rentable
housing of a design soon, and I'm looking to have it use the rental
hardcode."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But if people ask - how many rooms, how much, where, or anything else, I
haven't 100 percent pondered that one yet."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to a flaxen-haired, braided-haired
girl,
"Yep. The code has been tested and is fully functional. We just need to
deploy for renting spaces."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"There will be two options for housing. Rent and purchase."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"To clarify, the first thing available will likely be an apartment
building type structure where you indeed, rent."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"The rental code allows you to rent a room at any time on your own
without staff intervention."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to a loping, muscular woman,
"I cannot speak for how similar it will be to Harshlands system."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Greenskye I personally fixed that bug around seven years ago."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"On this edition of this codebase."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"We have a fixed date in RL time and a fixed date in game time and it's
simply computed on start up from that point in time."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to all,
"Once again... these are general points we're trying to make. Specifics,
such as price, is the code fixed to prevent loss of days, will have to
be asked on the forums. We have a lot of ground to cover yet and we're
half way through our 90 minutes."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt nods to a tall golden robot.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"As for the question about the Inn, the Inn offers more than just it's
rooms, and maybe some people just want to be closer to the booze."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl chuckles.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But yes, there will be a system in place to utilize the fore-promised
tokens in some way I'll figure out how the rental code will play nice
with it. And if it doesn't well, then, trading them in for real monies."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt tells a loping, muscular woman,
"Definitely a question for the forums. You will pay a fixed amount for a
fixed amount of time. The exact commands or the way available housing
displaysi tself can be handeld there."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Let's discuss player-run clans for a few moments. We are working hard to
provide the leaders of these clans all the tools they will need to run
their clans with little staff interaction. We have already rolled out a
shop in the orc sphere so clan leaders may purchase doorguards."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"And I've personally seen PC managed or PC-run shops doing rather well,
so - I'm rather excited to see what people get up to. And the customers
in the respective spheres seem to be enjoying it as well."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Costs are currently very high on these mobs for a number of reasons.
Expect income of shop owners to exceed that of the current in-game
limits. Also, there will be loans made, which will need to be repaid
over time by the owner of a clanhall if they do not have the requisite
coin. Please understand, that these loans are gained IN-GAME, they are
not granted by staff outright."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to an aquiline-nosed, green-eyed
man,
"Non-business, or domicile-only clans will be welcome."

A tall golden robot tells a thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen, with a
metallic lilt,
"Wargs don't use coin."

A tall golden robot smirks.

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Pretty sure they don't run shops."

A tall golden robot tells a thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen, with a
metallic lilt,
"We'll make sure you're pups are safe."

A tall golden robot says, nodding to an unwashed-haired, thin-legged
male,
"Orcs will get some rentals in time, yes."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Obviously one cannot indeed turn private property into a commercial
enterprise later though without the proper paperwork and no doubt fees,
though - so, no applying for a Great Hall for your family horde and then
selling - pies out the back window, someone will inevitably rat on you."

A tall golden robot nods to a flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl.

A tall golden robot says, speaking for the human side only,
"The AU (Artisan's Union) is the main overseer of these player-run clans,
and clan halls. They will be who you make request to for businesses,
homes, or whatnot."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"For people at least, I'm not sure what the Orc equivalent is - you don't
do things without the Warboss' permission."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl chuckles.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"We are also working on an import/export system that will allow business
owners to take contracts, or purchase imported items. These 'ports' will
be in many different places. Orcs will see their own. We'll also see
blackmarket ports that may appeal to the more nefarious type."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I'd imagine new places would go in the expansion, I mean, they'd have to."

A long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female walks in from the south.

A tall golden robot tells an aquiline-nosed, green-eyed man, with a
metallic lilt,
"Imports and exports will be slightly different from the old system in
Minas Tirith."

A tall golden robot tells an aquiline-nosed, green-eyed man, with a
metallic lilt,
"They will be similar to what we have in-game right now."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Just with more ability to update and alter them. Currently, they are a
rather static prog with specific building that makes updating or
expanding it rather difficult to do."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Okay... we're at one hour. I'm going to close this down and open it up
to general questions in a few minutes."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Yes, the Lodge is going to stay open."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"As to will magic ever return, that's a question that assumes it hasn't
already."

A tall golden robot says, pondering,
"I'd never considered a warg that was aligned good."

A tall golden robot asks a flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl, with a
metallic lilt,
"Are good wargs even possible in Tolkien?"

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"No."

A tall golden robot nods.

A tall golden robot tells a loping, muscular woman, with a metallic lilt,
"Sorry, no."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl asks, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But could we ponder someone being able to play a Wolf that's being
domesticated or maybe someone just straight playing a hunting dog or
something?"

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Maybe."

A bloody big eagle asks,
"Did someone call me?"

A tall golden robot tells an unwashed-haired, thin-legged male, with a
metallic lilt,
"We'll have to consider how young is too young for a warg."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But a Warg, no, they can't be good, like an Orc, they are fundamental
corruptions that stand against the intention of the Great Song and
against Eru Illuvatar's vision of the world, they were made without
permission and do not have his blessing, they are evil, or one might
argue soulless."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"PG warg combat should be similar to NPC warg combat. no weapon wielding,
"unarmed" swings are bites not punches, etc."

A tall golden robot says, nodding,
"Okay... sorry. But I'm going to cut off the specific questions and open
it up to general."

A tall golden robot laughs at a stringy, long-haired male youth.

A tall golden robot gives a gleaming silver sphere to a
rotten-toothed, scar-nosed male.

A rotten-toothed, scar-nosed male asks, sounding like Songweaver,
"Hi there. I wanted to reverse to the announcement about player-run
clans, and consider that for a moment. First, allow me to say that I
think that it's a fabulous step forward. Sorry for the spam, and such a
complex question question, but this has been foremost on my mind in
regards to SOI for quite some time now. First: does the creation of
player-run clans allow for players to collaborate before application to
apply not just with a character concept, but with a full clan concept
(examples cultist groups, bandits, etc)? Secondly, does the allowance of
player-run clans mean for that the staff plans to open up the
restrictions on what makes for an acceptable background, geographically?
I'm aware of instances of the Hillmen, Beornings, and even an Elf, as
varying levels of unique PC applications. With player-run clans and
wargs now realizing full player potential, will there be a place for
applications for servants of Dol Goldur and Sauron, working to bring
Utterby down from the inside? Will Easterling bandits become a
possibility? Gondorian Merchants? Exiles from Rohan? Based on your
previous answers, are such unique concepts encouraged should the player
approach the staff in a collaborative manner? If so, are there any plans
to create a series of guidelines that may reduce cries of favoritism
from folks who require a set of rules and practices to point towards?"

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Reading."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"If I'm going to try and tackle that, I'm going to have to go point by
point, and be asked the grace to say I'm finished before there's
anything else asked."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"First - I'm glad that you like the idea of player run clans, it's
something I enjoy watching as well."

A tall golden robot says, looking around,
"As Frigga weighs in on this, if anyone else has any general questions,
please petition and I will coordinate with you to ask them."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Second - In total honesty, any time we've allowed people en mass to
develop concepts before chargen this has been met with resistance if not
resentment by the playerbase at large. So - while I'm not saying
strictly no, I'm rather hesitant about giving a blanket yes either. I
think it would depend on the concept and about how many people people we
were talking about."

A brown-furred, cheese-loving mutt says,
"Please stop the petition Q's too so Frigga can think/speak folks."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Also, as a side note, I feel like the cultist thing has been so done,
it's almost - trope."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"Are we opening up applications for acceptable background geographically
for higher RPP folks or those who present a fair case? Yes. As noted,
there's a few examples of that already. The restrictions are in place
for low RPP and starting PCs who are unfamiliar with the game world and
really larger canon to make a PC concept that is not on point."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I'm not at this point looking to have PCs as spies like on either side.
Again, I think that would be something that would need to be very
carefully considered as past instances of that I've seen were ... badly
handled, kind of trope, and ended in disaster."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"As for a Gondorian Merchant if you could come up with a reason you'd end
up here in kind of a mudhole and something to offer people they'd need,
go for submitting an app. Same for an Rohan exile."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"And yes, you are encouraged to submit a ticket to staff and begin a
conversation about something you are interested in. At a certain point,
if your application proceededs, you'll be transfered to further
discussion into a restricted forum so that staff can openly communicate
about it."

A tall golden robot says, adding,
"I will add that these applications take a good deal of time for us to
work through. There is a lot of back and forth between player and staff
to ensure we are of one mind in the role, that it fits with canon and
that it will add to the world."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I could write up a kind of vague set of guidelines, sure. But really it
comes down to a basic question - would this role fit into the current
game world and does it fit with canon? And more importantly, are you the
right player to be playing that role, which I'm sure isn't the most
succient answer."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"But yes, I can come up with some kind of post on the topic."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I think I ran out of juice to answer anything else creative to that
question."

A tall golden robot smiles at a flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl.

A tall golden robot asks, with a metallic lilt,
"The question was asked: Do you have to know a lot of Canon lore to be
able to apply for decent roles?"

A tall golden robot says, patting his chest,
"I am living proof that being a lore legend is not required to play this
game. There are a lot of areas where non lore pros can work their way
up."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"And I'm more than happy to blather at you or with you to help you figure
out what canon you need to know to develop a good role."

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl chuckles.

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl gives a gleaming silver sphere to
a long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female.

A long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female says,
"First off, thank you staff and kudos to you for keeping SOI what it was
always meant to be."

A tall golden robot tells a flame-touched, rolling-gaited middle-aged man,
smirking,
"Thank you."

A long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female asks,
"Since the game is still in its early stages and the playerbase still
less than ideal, won't more player-run clans do more harm than good
right now? Also with the addition of playable wargs to the game, is it
safe to say that testing on the player server for some of the other
races we've seen in-game is now over as well?"

A tall golden robot tells a long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female, with
a metallic lilt,
"Good questions."

A tall golden robot tells a long-faced, chestnut-brown-haired female, with
a metallic lilt,
"This is my opinion only. Yes, we're in our early stages, yes we could be
more prepared. But if we waited for everything to be perfect, we would
never open or allow folks to make their clans. Players tend to splinter
in to groups naturally, even if they don't have a clan hall. Allowing
you to found your own clanhall and/or business now, and giving you the
tools to work with your employees takes pressure off of staff and lets
you lead if you're a leader, or follow, if you're a follower."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"As far as other races, I assume you mean elves and dwarves. We are
nearing the point where we will be completely opening those races as
well, but it is not quite yet here. Soon."

A tall golden robot gives a gleaming silver sphere to a thin-lipped,
thin-legged female teen.

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Two more questions."

A tall golden robot tells a hook-nosed, long-haired woman, with a metallic
lilt,
"Yes."

A thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen says, it's Krelm,
"Hey there guys, long time listener, first time caller."

A thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen asks, it's Krelm,
"Has presense been determined to be not useful enough to be nixed as a
stat yet, or at least put at a static 10 so the points can be shifted
between other stats easier? On the same track, has chargen been changed
at all to make stat rolling more steady, instead of crazy random like it
was before? Last question: I was gonna post this in that skill thread
sticky, but here it is anyway, has the nerf to skills out of chargen
been removed, or do characters that pick 4 skills still start at high
amateur to low familiar? And question about warcraft, which I posed on
the forums but didn't go further into detail: is it still going to be
its own skill? If so, is it going to count towards a character's overall
skillcap, or will it be 'ignored,' much like Aim or Common or others?"

A tall golden robot tells a thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen, with a
metallic lilt,
"No. No. No. Yes. It will count towards skill cap."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"I'll expand a bit if you like."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Presence is currently used for some things, I am ill-prepared to say
what, but I'm pretty sure it's used in the retreat system."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Stat rolling is fairly steady now in chargen."

A thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen says, it's Krelm,
"I'd mostly like some expansion on the skill nerfing, if there's enough
time. It didn't make much sense to me when the pool was nerfed to begin
with, and if you increased it a tad it'd fix at least some complaints on
losing everything at character death, like you were mentioning in that
one stickied thread."

A tall golden robot tells a thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen, nodding,
"We are considering the skill issue. I'm personally leaning towards
bumping the base up slightly and possibly applying an overall bonus
based on rpp level."

A tall golden robot asks a thin-lipped, thin-legged female teen, with a
metallic lilt,
"Does that answer you question?"

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Last question."

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man says, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"Hi, big fan, this is my first time on the show."

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man says, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"What's the standing lore for Wargs going to be like? I know Wolfsong and
Krelm submitted docs before, is that still what we're going with?
Secondary question, are there plans for intergrating the opposition
sphere still once the eventual shift to Laketown occurs in full? I know
geography isn't really a big deal, but the question of "if evil PCs are
going to get as much attention as neutral or good guys" is still worth
asking."

A tall golden robot tells a slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man,
nodding,
"Krelm and Wolfsong put together some great docs, and yes, that is what
we plan on using. Further lore may be fleshed out in the future either
in-game or through further docs."

A tall golden robot asks a slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man,
with a metallic lilt,
"Integration? As in phasing out orcs?"

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man asks, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"I don't know if talks shifted in regards to phasing out the "opposition"
sphere, as in orcs, yeah, though that could encompass more than orcs,
but is that a possibility? Consolidation? Or is a strict dualistic
"good/evil" setup the end-goal here?"

A bloody big eagle asks,
"I'm sorry, did you just ask if orcs are going away with the opening of
Laketown?"

A flaxen-haired, braided-haired girl says, in a frigid, frosty tone like
Frigga,
"I think if everyone was just neutral that would kind of nuke the point
of Warcraft."

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man asks, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"So the future of slimey cretins is firmly secure, I take it?"

A tall golden robot tells a slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man,
nodding,
"We will be sticking with the strict good/evil setup right now. Yes, orcs
will exist as a playable race as long as I am lead."

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man says, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"Rejoice."

A slightly-darker-black-eyed, stubbly young man says, as the mofuggin'
WorkerDrone,
"Dropping the microphone, initiate."

A tall golden robot laughs.
A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"Okay... thank you everyone. We went a half hour over, but I think we
covered a lot of ground."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"If someone kept a log, they're welcome to post it."

A tall golden robot says, with a metallic lilt,
"I did not keep a log."

Thank you for posting this.
