re: Ilrahil

<t>Petros said it pretty well, Ilrahil. I'm not playing at anything. I gave a<br/> very businesslike and informational response to Otalkum's questions. The idea<br/> that certain guilds have weaknesses and limitations to balance out their<br/> strengths is a core aspect of our design goals, and shou...

Census Expanded - Guild Tallies!

<r>Friends of the Donut,<br/> <br/> The Genesis Census has been expanded so that the hourly snapshot not only<br/> counts the total players online, but also records which guilds they<br/> are in. Henceforth, as time passes and more data is collected, we will be<br/> able to analyze the activity leve...

Let there be Starbrite!

<t>Donut Dwellers,<br/> <br/> As the donut has floated in the Void throughout the eons, various strange<br/> realities have come to take shape on its many surfaces. Among the most<br/> curious are the various cycles of day and night which are completely<br/> different from one another as one travels...

Revised AoP Policy for Griefers

<t>Esteemed Community Members,<br/> <br/> Since first becoming a member of the Admin as AoP, I have held to the<br/> notion that pvp is a matter that can and should be handled entirely by<br/> the players. After all, it is your game to enjoy how you wish, and if<br/> the game allows it, then so do I...

Recode Update!

<r>Genesissians,<br/> <br/> Though never formally announced, through various events and word of mouth<br/> the community has for the most part come to know of the restructuring of<br/> the Mercenary Guild in their new guildhall south of Sparkle. While more of<br/> a total rebuild from scratch, the r...

State of the Donut

Fellow Genesis Enthusiasts, It has become customary about this time of the year for me to offer an analysis of progress in the game - a State of the Donut Address, as it were. We'll begin by looking at graphs and tables that track the playerbase, followed by an analysis of these data. Then, I'll wr...

Death Recovery (New!)

<t>Esteemed Fellow Genesis Enthusiasts,<br/> <br/> One of the design goals that I have for this game is to make PvP possible<br/> in a realistic way. A big part of what has prevented most players from<br/> wanting to engage fully in PvP combat is the stiff death penalty and the<br/> very difficult t...

Rule Revision and Botting

<t>Denizens!<br/> <br/> As is probably obvious by my continued scrolling of this board, the botting<br/> issue has given the Administration cause for much discussion, consideration,<br/> and action as we have wrestled with how to deal with the problem.<br/> <br/> In response to many mails requesting...

More Botting ...

<r>Fellow players,<br/> <br/> The count of bots that have been identified and punished has risen to three.<br/> The most recent case is one that I feel must be discussed a bit, for it is<br/> a bird of a different feather - the so-called idle-bot.<br/> <br/> An idle-bot is someone who has timed trig...

Death of a Bot ...

<t>Genesis Community,<br/> <br/> Today, I put to death a character who proved to be a bot. The character was<br/> near-myth in size, though it is presumed that much of that size was gained<br/> through the very botting behavior that lead to the death. Thus, it is also<br/> assumed that the loss incu...
