We could throw a "WOW like armory" page on top of it, where you can display your stats/guilds/achievements/whatnot and share on social networks of all kinds. Throw some pretty graphics on it and you can attract people.


No it was never implemented. I believe parts were completed though, but not enough to make it to the live game. The project has to my knowledge been on ice for some years now. I seem to remember part of it was tested during an event years ago though, but it might be my memory playing tricks too. Wasn't it tested during the necro event possibly? Hmm. Goooooorboth!

>appraise bracelet
You study the gilded azure bracelet carefully.
 This is the Genesis Achievements Bracelet. Your achievements are tracked
through Genesis Badges. Eventually you will be able to <wear> this bracelet to
show off your <badges> to others. Should you need to, you can <discard> it, but
you will not earn any badges without it.

 You judge that the weight is 1 grams and you estimate its volume is about 1
milliliters. You estimate its worth to 1 copper coin.
The gilded azure bracelet is made to be worn on your left wrist.


>wear bracelet
 By wearing the gilded azure bracelet, others will be able to see your
achievements.

Well too bad achievements in general weren't implemented. Could be useful for promoting the game, when people would start sharing those on facebook with links to Genesis page.

It was an experiment to see how it could work in the game. I think the overall feedback was that it was way to spammy, so we needed to find a way to make that better. There's also categorization of achievements as we added them over time and what governance was needed for it. Assuming we can do that, the framework is there to actually use it in many places. We need some new events though... :)

Well take it to the web site, instead of the game.
And you don't need new events, there are lots of good suggestions for achievements right in this post! :)

So I imagine, when you get the achievement, you would instinctively dance in circles and a voice would boom out of nowhere: YOU DID IT.

Am I right? ;)
