Well thanks, but I had that one pretty well figured out already. :)

I know who Riv plays, and I have strong suspicions about two or three other people, but the game's more fun the less I think about who plays who.

Frankly I ignore most of who plays who. Makes it easier. That and I've banned half of you at one point or another, so I can't quite keep straight who I favor and who I don't, outside of day to day, "They're being a right twit."

I have no idea who anyone plays. Sometimes, I'm not even even sure who I play.

I try not to spread around who my current character is. It helps avoid situations where ooc feelings toward other people can either tempt you to befriend them in game when it's not really IC, or tempt you to kill the character because you think the player is a douchewagon.

I try not to figure out who people play, but sometimes it's just so easy to infer based on what issues they care about (and bitch about) on the forums.

There should be a favorite npc sdesc thread, but here is one of mine...

A colossal, chestnut-haired girl is here.

ETA: This one totally took my next sdesc... :(

I don't think so. I have terrible memory problems, so it's next to impossible for me to hold a grudge. There are only one or two people that I just assume are going to piss me off when I see their name at the beginning of a post. :p

Just for kicks, I wrote a script that will roll back the entire game 24 hours. Databases, files, chars, rooms... everything, I'm working on forcing every single character in-game and out to sleep and have the last 24 hours be a dream they've just woken from.

It'll never happen, but it'd be a fun time.

;)

Dude, that would be amazing. Just play it off as a crazy mass dream/hallucination because big bad Sauron is in the area. Doesn't he just seep evil anyways?

Not a fan of this new weather code. The game's basically unplayable for me.

Yeeeaah, it seems to be calibrated wrong. It does that 'the heat saps your strength' thing every other room, draining two things of stamina each time.

The corpse of a fragile, hesitating rabbit with onyx fur is lying here. 
I feel like there's a whole story wrapped up in that tiny corpse.

Having to run away from a conversation with a character you rarely get to RP with because in what passes for "Real Life" there is a manic terrier, spattered in cupcake batter, running up and down the hallway... :lol:

That sounds like the kind of situation that would clean up after itself given time.

Had an in-text dream last night that my character was killed by a wolf while I was afk ...

... and then went to hell. Text-based hell. Like, in my dream, I had to read the room descriptions for first the river Styx, then the skeleton steering the barge, then the gates of hell.

Like in the old TOME, where you could start dead at the bottom of the Halls and had to make your way to the surface to become alive.
