Re: Hiding titles

Genesis has a mechanic of <introduce>, <remember> and <who> that serve a purpose of remembering friends and foes so that you can adress them more easily with commands. This mechanic works rather well (some could say the memory capacity is not as big as they'd need it to be) and part of it is introd...

Re: Khalakhor News

I agree with Raelle. There are a ton of quests there, so it is great to see attention being given to areas that are often visited by newcomers to the Donut.

Re: Activity

Guild data isn't readily available and takes a lot of manual work to calculate. I am not going to do that more than once a year... at most... sorry. Me and Greneth did compare some player numbers, and we're definitely down compared to May/June last year. But it's hard to compare anything to last sp...

Re: Options pvp on/off.

We have rules against harrassment, so you cannot be killed over and over without reason. We have no permadeath. And if you get to your corpse in good time, you can even retrieve all your EQ, which saves on you. The realms are already as hospitable as I would want them to be.

Re: Upcoming Changes.

I would be amazed if certain guilds and races aren't crippled by this change (obligatory acknowledgement that we haven't seen it in action yet). Certain kinds of magic-users, thieves, and the non-bludgeoning races (as has been pointed out) seem to be directly in the crosshairs, for example. I assume...

Genesis mentioned on Chrome Unboxed

I know Chromebook users are almost second-class citizens in the minds of a lot of our hardcore players, but Chromebooks are more popular than ever, and Genesis just got mentioned today on a pretty big ChromeOS-nerd website: https://chromeunboxed.com/kick-it-old-school-muds-for-your-chromebook .
