|Pimp my artificer pack|| ||2012-05-12 02:58:58|
|Quoth the Maker:
I was on my way to visit the Caliph of Drakhiya when a desert orc store clerk
stopped me midstep. He claimed he had a grand idea to improve the sales of
his wonderful Artificer's Pack, but he needed a little assistance with his
research. I helped him tinker with the pack and we both agreed it was safe
for public use. Enjoy!
Thanks for this update filled with ficerly love!
|Some minor updates|| ||2012-05-11 13:56:39|
|I may have forgotten to report some of these updates from the start of the year, so piling up a pack of them.
The Newbie and Geographical Society lines now respect players' squelch settings.
Waterwalking ability wearing off while on a river now does not leave the player in the river.
'Who'ing a player now shows if they are linkdead.
The traditional \\"fish is not a living thing!\\" message has been finally capitalized.
More obscure bugfixes were made to greasy meat and to one mystery room truncation, and locked doors. Necromancers and Scythers got a bit of of buglove too.
A bunch of werewolves have been fixed to put an end their obscure phase-of-the-moon breeding problem.
Belt of Giant and mage Deeppockets no longer lose their contents in any situation.
Treasure hunt monsters should be behaving notably better, such as not attacking from afar or stopping themselves from running away. The healer types got a bit tougher as a side effect. Further bugs have been discovered since.
The cleric heal player now looks a bit less boring.
According to a recent post on the ranger board, sinew and feather clumps can soon be pulled from a pack a bit at a time, as requested by multiple players. Thanks, Newt!
|Boomer Boom - A Duet|| ||2012-04-27 13:33:42|
|(This posthumously reordered shout performance was inspired by Vengaboys' "Boom Boom Boom Boom" (the backbone), Outhere Brothers' "Boom Boom Boom", The Beatles' "Help!", Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", some random 90s kids' show, and three bad bola puns.)
Whoa-oh whoa-oh x 2
Slayer chicks are back in town!
Whoa-oh whoa-oh x 4
If you're undead and you need a stake
Someone to make you forget your hungers
Just stay awhile, baby
Feel my prayers
I'll be your slayer tonight
So you think you can beat me and leave me to diiiie!?
Oh, lady. Can't do this to me, lady.
Just gotta get out! Just gotta get right outta herrrre!
This is what I wanna do
Let's see some blood
One-on-one just me and you
Mordecai: Boom BOOM BOOM! Let me hear you say Wayo! Wayoooo!
Boom boom boomer-boom
I'll drop your dex of doom
Then we can fight together
From now until forever
Boom boom bola-boom
What, leaving me so soon?
I'll ball-gag you with leather
Stay with me in this room!
HELP! I need somebody!
HELP! Not just anybody!
HELP! You know I need someone!
You, my dear, are going down
Slayer chicks are back in town
Mordecai: Newt! Save me!
Lars remarks: You gotta fight! For your right! To paaaaaaarttyyy!
Skiddamarinky dinky dink.
I run from youuuuu!!
Fir: (Whoa-ohs and Whoos and choruses continue, because that's how it goes in the original song.)
|Mudding with phones|| ||2012-04-21 13:59:55|
|(Warning: out-of-themedness imminent; this is a public service post.)
There was a long mudding with phone clients thread on Facebook and the
topic comes up occasionally on chat lines too, so I thought I'd
summarize what data I have on my hands. Note that I don't play with my
phone (it's one for calling only), I'm just repeating what I've heard
said about the different clients.
This post will be updated as needed. Corrections and additions are very welcome.
1) Yes, people play on phones. No, it's not mind-blowingly awesome, but
seems to work out.
- Apparently Swype and voice recognition can be used to help the eternal
typing issue a bit - for the chatting side, at least.
2) Any telnet client will work, of course, and there's more options for those.
- Mocha Telnet Lite - example free telnet client on the App Store
- iSSH - has been used to telnet in too
3) For more specialized mud clients, there's a handful of choices brought up:
- TMC Mud Client (From The Mud Connector, for iPhone)
- has buttons, but needs some tweaking, e.g. alias N to n, E to e, etc.
- Sickness had an issue with an instant disconnect at login when testing
this on iPad, suspected there might be some configuration needs
- Blowtorch (for Android)
- Multiple people recommend / say they use it
- $3, "works fairly well but crashes if you tag with a spammy party"
- "it's not on the appstore" (?)
- "works like telnet but you have to open and close the keyboard"
|Nineveh caught violating Charky|| ||2012-04-17 11:20:43|
|Last week, Nineveh was bountied for 1000 coins "for violating a no-contact ban with Charky". He had filed for such a ban earlier himself, citing continued harassment from the old haggler.
When interviewed, Nineveh complained that after Charky had been following him all day, his last "Do you sell the mace?" made him want to let the old haggler have it already. (Spiked end first.) But instead, he went to Dibbs to file for a no-contact ban, which was granted in amusement.
Dibbs was less amused when Charky ran to him a couple of days later, screaming assault and battery. So he bountied Nineveh. The Bear cleric soon showed up to argue that he had not laid a finger on the man, and produced an eyewitness who swore that a sudden rain of hail and rocks had appeared out of nowhere and struck Charky down. At the time, Nineveh had merely been muttering to himself and fiddling with his holy symbol to ease his nerves, nothing more.
While Dibbs was busy trying to decide who was telling the truth, Charky happened to ask him, "Do you sell the law form?"
Nineveh's bounty was quickly lifted.
