Jack the Sheriff shakes your hand.
Jack the Sheriff says, "Thank you! Before I go any farther, can you go
 find my worthless deputy Harold? He is usually drunk at the saloon, and I
 have had to throw a bucket of water on him to sober him up enough to do
 anything.  When you have done that, then return to me and say that Harold
 is sober, and then I will tell you more about what has been happening
 around here. The horses around here sometimes have buckets, and you will
 have to find the water on your own."

Hey man, how's it going?
Spellups in potions' timers
Note #41350
posted on Ideas
Friday, February 15, 2019 @ 13:30
Currently, when you use a spellup potion, each spell is given its own timer.
When dealing with this from casting the spells yourself standpoint, that's not
all that big of a deal... but when you're relying on potions to maintain some
of these effects, it becomes infuritating.

You quaff Skeleton Key Rag -> Fly (56:00) True Seeing (38:00)

So, in 38 minutes I have to quaff another potion - ok, that fine, not a big
deal... except, in another 18 minutes, I'm going to have to quaff another one,
then in another 20 minutes, I have to quaff another... and so on, and so on.


The idea itself is 2 steps. The first step is, give every spellup in a potion
a hard timer cap - something like 45:00. Regardless of your stats, the max
amount of time rewarded from a spellup potion will be 45mins. That doesn't mean
every spellup *will* be at 45:00 - just, that's the limit. Duration wish can
extend this timer by an extra 5:00, for 50:00.

The 2nd step of this would be, whenever a new potion is quaffed, refresh the
current spellups timers to reach that limit. So, if I quaff a Skeleton Key
Rag and get Fly (50:00) and True Seeing (38:00), I can quaff another SKR in
38 minutes and refresh my Fly timer, rather than having to wait another 12mins,
quaff ANOTHER potion, and just have rather strange quaff timers.

I know it's a very small annoyance and most people rarely stay single-class
for long - fewer still use spellup potions, I think - but I still think it
would be a nice change to those that do use / rely on spellup potions at
certain times.

Regarding Trivia Spellup Potions / Imm pills, they would be exempt from this,
just because they're so much more powerful than the basic ones floating around.

Possible Charge bug?
Note #18259
posted on Bugs
Saturday, February 2, 2019 @ 22:47
So, I charged Malloy's room earlier today. The charge hit him, but he was busy
fighting one mob and I was put onto another mob (it had wandered into the room
and became the top target in the room "stack"). Here's the charge.

[5] Your skill damages a Dragon Rider! [1464]
** Malloy can now take revenge on you for 15 minutes.
[5] Your skill damages Malloy! [220]
[5] Your skill damages a Dragon Rider! [1480]
A Dragon Rider is bleeding lightly.

When Malloy killed his mob, he was never put into combat with me.
When I killed my mob, I never moved onto Malloy, but the mob below him.

When I killed both mobs, Malloy & I were never in combat afterwards. He was
was able to portal out.

I feel like this is a bug, but I'm not entirely sure. I've charged others
before when they've been engaged in combat, but the mob being on top of the
stack is something I dunno if it's happened before.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Boot clan skill - Napalm
Note #17983

Unsure if this is a bug or not, but when anyone not in Boot types "Napalm",
they - or at least I - got this message:

"You wander too close to the napalm, and almost get it on you."

That sounds like a failure message, instead of a restricted message, like the
following:

Only the members of Cabal can unify.
Only the Emerald Knights may create a vortex.
You do not have the ability to diverge.

I think it should be changed, to avoid confusion.

It sounds like you missed a LOT.

'help goal-solving' is a file you may want to read. Also, the 'task here'
command is a fairly useful one, to get hints to help you solve the goal.

Finally, you *can* use the Q&A channel to ask for help on the goal, however,
do not expect to be walked through it. General hints are allowed, to help you
look for things you might be missing.

I think we should change "double gold mobs" for pre-lvl 100 Daily blessings to
"Mobs give additional 1000g per kill". Mobs sub lvl 100 give next to nothing
gold. Doubling 1 gold does nothing. Giving a higher amount reward per kill
would be a lot better for newer players to line their pockets with gold to be
able to afford things like eq & potions, while also not being crazy out of
hand.

This is a general statement. It's 100% easier to nerf than it is to balance and
improve others.

If it was easier to improve in other places, PSI and Ranger and Thief wouldn't
be absolute garbage.

Look at other games that have an online, competitive scene; this is true, as
well. Aardwolf is somewhat the same, granted on a much smaller scale, but all
we've seen recently is nerfs. Nothing's been truly enhanced to move players
away from Blacksmith / Mage / Cleric.

I just upgraded my PC and put a new SSD into it. Really excited to try it out.
So, I have a few questions.

1) My OS starts up pretty quickly. The SSD is 500gb. Should I just put larger
programs / games onto the SSD & leave the OS onto the HDD?

2) If no to 1, how would I go about moving the OS to the SSD without the disc?
I got the auto-upgrade to Windows 10.

3) If yes to 1, do I simply drag & drop the files from the programs I want
from one drive to the next?

3) Again, those variables don't affect the EXP given. You can argue that some
mobs are better to kill than others because of various spellups they give, sure
that makes sense... but you're not saying that.

I think the term "anti-farm" is confusing a lot of people.

The idea is, the longer a mob stays alive, the better chance of the items it
has dropping at Polished or better.
Quit calling this punishment. It's not punishment. Quit acting like this is
a bad thing. It's not a bad thing. This is exactly what rare exp is, but in
item drop chance form. It's not difficult to understand.

Incentive to OPK
Note #38931
posted on Ideas
Monday, January 29, 2018 @ 12:35
So, amidst the "discussion" that happened last night with Unforgiven going off
on his stance on OPK, another player, Exotabe, brought up an interesting point
that I thought about for 15 minutes, then forgot about it, went to sleep, woke
up, took another nap then got back onto Aard and decided to write a lengthy
note about. Enjoy!

During all that, Exotabe said there was "no incentive to go killing" and that
really stuck with me. I'm not talking about Toneloc's idea about "rewarding a
player with a TP for getting a PKill" or whatever his note said, but another
idea that could make OPK a bit more interesting and fun. Granted, it would need
to make minor changes to the overall PK system, so it wouldn't be heavily
abuseable(sic, I know), but... well, here's my idea.

What if, whenever an OPK kills another player - OPK or not - they were given a
'point' that, as those points accumulated, they would get increased rewards for
completing quests and CPs? I'm not saying, 1 kill = 1 point = immediate rewards
because that would be broken. This is what I was thinking.

0-9 points = No rank.
10-29 points = Rank C - +1 train per quest / cp completed, low chance of +1 QP.
30-59 = Rank B - +2 trains per q / cp completed, low chance of +2 QPs.
60-99 = Rank A - +3 trains, low chance of +4 QPs.
100+ = Rank S - +5 trains, low chance of +5 QPs.

You'll notice, it would take awhile (and a lot of luck) to get good rewards,
but the first thing I thought about what how could this be abused and my first
thought was the whole Cackle-Fiendish interaction. So, the first thought I had
was, limit the amount of 'points' a player can get from another. I decided that
players can only 'give points' to another every so often. I'll list it below.

From 0 to 1 - obviously no wait, whenever you kill them, you get it.
From 1 to 2 - 24 hour wait. This way the player can't farm the same
person repeatedly.
From 2 to 3 - 72 hour wait. This would encourage the hunting of
other players.
From 3 to 4 - 1 week.
From 4 to 5 - 2 weeks. At that point, you could not get any more
points from that player until you died & lost progress.

I forgot to write that earlier, I'm bad at this. When you die, you lose the
progress.

So, you might have gotten here and said "Ok, but this just makes it easy for
T9es to get stronger". This is where adjustments would need to be made for this
system. I'll use two players as examples for this - Robbo and Tymme.

Tymme, a T3 lvl 40 player is killing mobs. Robbo, a bored T9 lvl 50, comes
across Tymme and one-shots him.

Tymme's counter / rank would not go away. Robbo's would not increase.
The system would work as follows: x-2 < x < x+ , where X is your tier. I hope
I did that right. Basically, if you're T5, you will only affect scores of
others that are 2 tiers below you and any tier above you. So, in the case
above, if Tymme had killed Robbo, Tymme's score *would* improve and Robbo's
wouldn't.

Also Robbo would've been outcasted from HooK.

I was thinking, of maybe making it x-1, so lower tiers had a better chance,
so that could always be changed. Also, if the player you kill is 3+ tiers above
yours, maybe it would give 2 points instead of 1? That's some food for thought,
too.

Sorry, this is a really long note. And it's probably garbage that's gonna get
flamed, but I think it's something to think about, to get people to engage in
OPK and enjoy the player killing aspect that I believe OPK was intended for.
