Yet I can remove it in 12 hours with the recent change.

Turning ON the global channel.
 
Nitpicky but it'd probably look better as 'the global quest channel', as there
are several channels that could probably be considered global.

Would you rather...
A) Pretend to bring peace, prosperity and justice to the lands
B) Plaster your clan loyalty to the entire MUD, repeatedly
C) Do whatever you want, so long as you don't piss off the Imms
  
The biggest park for the Hardcore system is
A) Getting a few extra quest points
B) Whining when someone has the audacity to kill you
C) Lots more players to give sweet dagger hugs!
 
You prefer a clan channel filled with
A) Beep boop beep beep beep boop
B) The sound of crickets chirping
C) Dirty jokes and inappropriate socials
 
When you get PK'ed, would you rather
A) Ask clannies to rush to your side to "defend" your "honor"
B) Put the person that PKed you on ignore in protest
C) Get teased, maybe get a spellup, and move on with your life
 
Goats are
A) Any of numerous agile, hollow-horned ruminants of the genus Capra
B) The spawn of Satan, but a tasty sacrifice
C) Awesome and a great way to piss off a particular clannie
 
On the other hand, Goatse is
A) Something you've heard of but that's it
B) Totally disgusting and shouldn't be on the internet
C) Appropriate for an ASCII art clan message of the day
 
The Internet has a definite winner.  Of these choices, it is...
A) latest tots dank meme yo 
B) Ninjas
C) Pirates
 
 
Everyone thinks a pirate's favorite letter is R, but their true love be the

Totally agree.  Shouldn't have to stop and think how to take three seconds to
work around an issue.
 
?Don't forget the mob without detects in Sahuagin, or the remove-gear mprogs
like Zarkrand (whatever) in Talsa and the slave aura in Darklight.  Masq's
monkey photo was funny once, now just annoying.  Day/night mob cycles.

I'd argue an entire area full of aggro mobs is annoying, so can we get those
changed too?  And the mega-powerful goal end mobs in SH areas, let's nerf them
too.  Don't wanna do too much thinking.

The point is what does curse flags serve on a key?
What does a Tier level 250 key serve?

What does it serve to have most of the mobs drop punitive gears?

How does any of these add any thematic element to the area?

How does it make the area more fun? or more challenging to play?

1. Cursed keys can be gotten rid of easily by simply relogging
(And if you're saying that it's troublesome to get the keys again, maybe
they're not easily obtainable?)

2. Curse flags are also play a thematic element. It can't be a particularly
strong curse if you could get rid of it so easily.
Punitive Gear
Note #39565
posted on Ideas
Sunday, April 15, 2018 @ 07:10
Punitive gears are gears with overall undesirable effects/stats
that a player will never want to wear or keep in inventory.
These gears are worse than junks, they're meant to punish a
player for doing (or not doing) something.

Punitive gears are often designed with curse flag, negative stats,
forced into player's inventory and forced upon player to wear it.
It is sometimes deployed in popular levelling areas to create
"challenges" for the players. Punitive gears are also often
very high levelled (ie lvl 250) so that their curse flags will
be very hard to remove.

However there are some clear situations that punitive gears have
no part to play. 

1. Keys
If it is a very very important and hard to obtain key in a mass
epic run, it may be ok to leave nodrop on it. 
But making an easily obtainable key lvl250 and curse flagged as 
a punitive gear serves no purpose, adds no value to the game.

2. Routine gear drops on mobs
Once again, if by making these punitive in nature serves no value
added purpose to the gameplay, it should not be there.

As a builder, tier levelled EQ should only be used on items of
important values, such as final rewards. Making keys level250
curse flags serve no purpose except to troll players.
Example:
     (K)(I) a Prismatic Key (250)
     (K)(I) a Gleaming Key (250)
     (K)(I) a Shimmering Key (250)

So why do builders add punitive gears in places that seem to 
serve no purpose anyway? Who knows, sometimes it is to because
some of these punitive measures do not affect the builders as
the builders have a certain wish?

Dear aardwolf members and staff.
it has come to my attention that there is no place to discuss philosophy

It would be cool if there was something like the Daily Blessing
hoever, you could only claim it monthly. 
And, it would have slightly better rewards than the Daily Blessing
Just an idea, maybe something to look into and think about.

There were no good uses for clan gps back when you donated the 10k. Sounds like
a huge case of regret. Sorry but I dont think you should get a "refund" because
you ragequit or whatever. (I dont know the circumstances but I dont think it  
should really matter). 

Instead maybe it might be nice is some "useful" options for spending clan qps 
were added. AFAIK the only useful thing you can do with clan qps is global 
restores.

I got some helpful tells after the previous post and the goal is now complete.
It may not technically be bugged but I think the method for getting him
to follow you is either not suggested anywhere and thus too obtuse or
the taskhint that mentions it is overwritten by the taskhint that you
are currently too evil.
The NPC also gives no output when following you, only detectable by looking
again after moving.

When I beckon the lost NPC I get...
"A lost member of the Light order starts to follow you." as expected.
But the NPC never actually follows me. If I move even 1 room,
The NPC fails to appear alongside me and disapears from the room it was in.
NOTE: I completed the 'bring lords head' task first, exploration second.
NOTE: On my first attempt to get the NPC to follow me, I was too evil.
If I wait around after moving 1 or 2 rooms, I get...
"The lost order of the light member stops following you" after 30-60s,
but if I run through as many rooms as possible I seem to recieve the message
faster
Even when I have made it back to the task giver before the "NPC
stops following" message, the task does not register as complete.
I have tried logging out and in again.

This is not a bug, nor is it intentional... it's a simple coincidence.
Regardless if it is a quest mob or not is irrelevant, a CP mob is NEVER
huntable.

Good idea!

Also can we get
- Back QPs we spent on when there was nothing to spend it on?
- Free 50 redos since we had much higher TNL to exp and grind to t9 so
it took years while bots do it now in 6-12 months?
- And lots of smiles because I made an excellent sarcastic joke here! :)

Have a nice weekend,

PS. Well - actually it might not be SO bad idea after all. As there's 
little to nothing for clans to spend QPs on I suppose - but would be nice
if those qps could be used for example on **CLAN HELD GQs** ! :)

Clan Donation QP Refunds
Note #39552
posted on Ideas
Saturday, April 14, 2018 @ 11:53
Over 2 years ago I took a break from Aard, planned it to be a LONG break.
So I donated 10,000qp to the clan as a gesture of good faith that I'd be back &
a parting gift etc.  Anyways I'm back after 2 years, and the 10k qp I donated
is still there was never used just sitting in the clan QP account.  Apparently
there's nothing to have even spent the QP on for the past two years.
So anyways that's the context, here's the Idea
.
Create new command for clan officers to refund QP back to members that donated

Timezone is one of bigger issue for many more casual
players which is not solved in Aardmud, while in many
others MMO's it's solved, even with 1000x lower playerbase
there should have been separated reset timer for EU/US.
This does not mean that player can run it more often players
can still be limited to run it only once per reset timer period.
It may be difficult to code, but timezone is huge factor and
it's completetely overlooked.

For IF2? I don't think it can be fixed anymore.
It's so large epic and requires a lot of strong SH's.
Even more so, you can't ignore the fact how BS's broke
the entire difficulty settings and it was ignored completely
by area creator and immortals until BS's groupswing got nerfed
You just took away powercandy you let run rampart for good half a year
So many players quit within 2/3 months after they got gear and smith
nerf.

Why it's too late to fix IF2 now?
Considerable amount of players have bought IF2 items from those who
ran easy mode IF1/IF2 extreme with 80% blacksmith group. No offense to
those people they put in effort, but they were right time on right place
and just like in life it can make you rich for rest of your life.
People who have already invested largly in getting IF2 gear you won't
be seeing them run 70/130 IF2 at least most of them. People who
sell gear now are mostly the ones running it because of extra pts.
It's hard truth, but beside fixing obtaining of IF1/IF2 portal I don't
think fixing IF2 has much of point anymore, Yowza has not been very keen
finding solution to decreased playerpool and significantly harder time
without blacksmith zerg.
I still remember that day when I saw you/him change from navigator to
blacksmith, I don't understand still how was IF2 not closed when 80%
run was blacksmiths...
I's fair to ask players to spend time and find new ways to run IF2,
but no, it's not players fault they used power carrot at the time,
it's completely unfair to ask more casual/newer players to spend
such hours in epic that was run by a lot of strong SH's/hardcore
players with big power carrot (blacksmith)

Inferno...
Because scars can be sold for massive price, it brings attention
to people with run count to play lottery, nothing wrong with that.
I would not personally not have time or will to run it from 2017
to 2020 to get enough runs to get scars.
Simple answer it takes WAY TO long to rank up considering
how many runs you will miss if timezone is bad for you.
Another epic who could use double reset for EU/US but
cannot be run more often by player then reset timer.

Genie...
Who though making another completely run count based epic was great idea...
I really did sort of like Genie, but my free time is simply worth more then
spending so many hours just to get chance of getting decent loot?

Such loot obtain design is such decline for casual gamers, I understand
you generally aim to keep your old timers interested in game though.
Not very good if your trying to grow as game though which is main goal
for most games.
 I swear I would never run single epic if the gear was obtainable
alone with different activities, my main interest in aardwolf was to
break away from playing WoW for nearly decade high-end raiding.
That's solid 4-6h long progress raids every day, but it was fun
engaging and there was loot to be had "within" a month.
So when I heard the best gear in aardwolf is locked behing epics that
require time investment in group activity I almost wanted to just
quit the game.. :p
it's really not a place to say, epic gear is not that good.
It's just is and if you put it collectively together as whole kit.
Good god. Let's go test port right now, you with plain raiding/clan
gear vs. full epic kit player. Sure I/M/P still overall have greater
impact, but again player with full epic kit vs non epic kit will just
ran over if I/M/P are similar.

Most problems described are a result of the flawed incentive structures.
Mass epics require huge groups, therefore people will AFK. Why doesn't this
happen on Titan epic? Such a mystery!
 
The way to fix problems is to change the incentive structure of the epics.
 
Mass epic experience can be dramatically improved by capping group sizes
and adding personal timers.

Epics are now grind. At least mass ones - I do not think
they are super enjoyable for a player that just follows
leader's instructions - players join them to get ranked
eq or points to buy ores/items.

Shop gives non-hardcore players like me possibility
to buy rank 5 with their own efforts (I still can buy
those rank 5 just with QPs from other players without
joining any run). 

In case of current run conversion to points I think 
I could get maybe 250 points or so - just because I got 
so far 135 Titan runs and several Winds - as Titan and 
Terra are only epics that I am able to join on regular 
basis. I mean I do not join epic like IF/Inferno/Genie 
if I am not sure that I am able to be online through 
whole run. Because of that I was able so far to complete 
36 IF1 runs and 12 Inferno. And I join IF1 runs since 
they were introduced (some players got over 400 runs 
in that time).
I think maybe in a year or two I can get to rank2 or even
rank3 in Inferno and maybe in a year or three to rank 4 IF1.

Also considering that Winds is rather easy, and you can
sometimes just join for final fight - maybe this run
should reward no points or less points per run, but OTOH
it gives some players to earn their rank 5 relatively easy
way.

Not a fan of the shop idea. Turns epics into a grind. RNG drop factor is a lot
more entertaining/enticing, but maybe that is just me.

Rare rolled epic eq could be a solution to breathing new life into all epics,
old and new.
