Re: New System for Items that Save

(...) Then an article appeared on the horizon, admin rushed suddenly with the simplest possible change, with side-effects impacting game balance seriously, side-effects you simply can't solve for a looong time already. You could have transformed those few OP no-dull weapons into slow-dull (quick, s...

Re: Quests with max age/size requirements

but you get qxp from fireball lol The reason it's been mentioned in this thread is that you can only do it when you don't have much size ... No, I think you misunderstood. Two of the four Fireball quests can't be completed if you have grown too big, but you can always do the other two regardless of...

Re: Quests with max age/size requirements

I keep forgetting about Fireball. A long time ago I looked at the directions and thought - well, I thought a curse word. Seemed pretty involved. Also, it's not on the quest orbs, is it? To get people to bother to learn it and then put together a team, you probably want them to know it exists and ha...

Re: Problems if we get too many newbies

Zhar: But the current system where EQ saves on your person is basically the same as your suggestion with a personal rack with 10 items? Except that today the limit is how much you can carry, rather than a fixed number. I do not see how a personal rack in free-to-join guilds would be a better system ...

Re: Problems if we get too many newbies

Thalric: Having non-magical stuff always save (but not magical) was one of the more popular ideas before the EQ-saving change was made, and was definitely one of the options that was seriously considered since that would have helped newbies, but not changed the game much for the rest of the players....

Re: PK Warning

It might be a good idea to make it clear in one of the files for newbies on the homepage that this is an active, unrestricted PK MUD. I thought I was safe in Sparkle City -- turned out I wasn't. Newbies being randomly killed in Sparkle isn't very common so you must have been quite unlucky, unless y...

Re: A Very Long Time Ago

*BUMP* Isn't it time for another one? :) I get that question from mortals quite often. And yes. Maybe it is time, but the two main issues with a wizday as I see it are: 1. Do we actually have enough wizards who want to participate? While the mortal population is quite healthy, we don't have a lot o...

Re: New System for Items that Save

However, do note that our (players) opinions do not really matter in these cases. It will be as admin decides, and maybe after they make a decision, they will post a "poll" on the forums. Did you not know, or forgot, that this entire change happened mainly because of a large number of players, new ...

Re: Thoughts on changes

Nils: I was not directly part of making the perma-saving change, however I was definitely involved in the discussion about it so I can at least let you know that there were a lot of discussion about it, and not a change made on a whim. It was discussed here on this forum several times, and we also t...

Re: Birder

Ahh, thanks for clarifying that! Curious, why would you take an ability specific to a guild and make it available to anyone? Wouldn't that ruin the flavor of the guild and its uniqueness? Well, this was a LONG time ago. I am not sure anyone who was part of that decision is even around anymore, so i...
