EQ Naming Contest!
Note #46

Congratulations to Shavrendil for winning the EQ Creation Contest!
The winning item was:
 
Entry #4 by Shavrendil (solidify/illuminate)
Level: 200 Worn: neck Flags: invis hum burn-proof
Str: 5 Int: 0 Wis: 0 Dex: 5 Con: 5 Luck: 0
HR: 0 DR: 14 HP: 75 Mana: 0 Moves: -150
 
The next stage of this contest is naming the eq piece!
 
This contest is to set the short description for the item, that is the name
that appears when the item is worn or in your inventory. The short description
may only be 50 characters in length including color codes.
 
Please keep in mind the wear location of the winning item. A necklace worn on
the legs would be rather silly. Also keep in mind that we are Amazon so
jungle or tribal themed names are encouraged, but not required.
 
You may also decide what material this eq is made of. A list of valid materials
can be found by typing 'materials all'. Note: This is a big list. If you decide
not to pick a material then I will select one based on the name of the item in
the event your item name wins the contest.
 
You may suggest up to 2 keywords to use on this item but your keyword
suggestion may be ignored. The keywords and long description for this item will
be set by me. Keywords, short description and long description are subject to
the rules defined in help cm-eq-info.
 
The rewards for this contest will be:
 
    First Place: a Trivia Point Token
    Second Place: 2 Million Gold
    Third Place: 500,000 Gold
 
To enter this contest, write a note on games board to all using the subject
line 'EQ Name Entry'. Please include the following information:
 
    Material type of the item (Optional)
    Suggested keywords to use (Optional)
    Short description with colors
    Short description with color codes escaped (Double up the @@s)
 
Unfortunately, due to an oversight on my part, the winners of these 2 contests
will not have their names added as a keyword. Instead, I will make sure that
you receive recognition by having your name permanently attached to the item.

There is a pretty massive error in the original note. Extra points cannot be
used on public clan equipment (thanks Redryn for pointing this out).
Below is the updated contest rules:
 
EQ Creation Contest!
Amazon has one available slot for a piece of public clan equipment! Help us
fill the slot and WIN!
 
There are two separate contests for this! The first is creating the actual eq.
The naming contest will be based upon the wear slot of the winning piece and
will also determine the material of the eq to be added.
Entries will be voted on by the mud, the piece with the most votes will win!
 
In order to create this EQ piece use this URL: http://tinyurl.com/6fg7po
This is not optional.
 
Choose the equipment type. This must be ARMOR. Clan is amazon.
All VNUMs should be 0. Name should be 'nothing'. Short and long descriptions
should be 'nothing'. Material should be none.
 
Pick a wear location. EQ that can be worn in two locations: ear, neck, wrists
or finger will have lower points totals than a single eq slot (See helps).
 
Pick a level. You may want to choose one of the following levels: 1, 41, 71,
91, 131, 151, 171 or 200. You must choose the appropriate level for the eq
generator to calculate point totals for your piece of EQ. Minimum level is 1,
maximum level is 201.
 
You MUST choose either Glow or Hum flag if Invis is set. You may ONLY choose
either Glow or Hum if Invis is selected, otherwise choose NEITHER. This will
affect the enchants available on the piece:
 
Invis = Solidify available
Glow = Illuminate unavailable
Hum = Resonate unavailable
 
Only TWO enchantments are available for a public piece of equipment. Exactly
TWO enchantments should be available for this piece of equipment.
Optionally select the burn-proof flag. It will be added anyway.
            DO NOT CHOOSE ANY OTHER FLAGS! THEY WILL BE IGNORED
 
Next set which stats (str/int/wis/dex/con/luck/hr/dr) this piece should have.
 
Negative points apply! You can put 1 negative point for .5 points. Example:
-150 Mana = +75 Hitpoints, -2 Strength = +1 Dexterity, etc.
 
For more information read help cm-eq-single, cm-eq-dual, cm-eq-negatives and
cm-eq-extrastat.
 
You MUST NOT have point usages in RED! If the EQ generator shows you RED then
you need to adjust your calculations. Any RED in the calculations will
result in DISQUALIFICATION.
 
Prizes for the EQ creation contest are:
  First place  - (5) a Trivia Point Token
  Second place - 12.5 Million Gold
  Third place  - 5 Million Gold
 
Your name will also be added as one of the item's keywords.
 
To enter, write a note on GAMES board to Kobus.
Use the subject line 'EQ Contest Entry'.
Paste the note given by the eq generator when you click Generate Note
 
Only 1 entry per person will be accepted. Failure to comply with all rules will
result in DISQUALIFICATION.
 
Contest entries will be accepted for 7 days. Be sure to post your entries
within that time. Entries will be voted upon by the mud and the winning entry
will collect the top prize! Tie-breakers will be handled by amazon clan member
votes.
 
Thank you all in advance for your entries! I look forward to seeing all of
your suggested EQ pieces. Happy EQ making!

I feel compelled to speak here. I seriously thought by the original post
that Toneloc was asking for a self-nuke.

The original post comes from a person who has sent tells to people saying "I will
repeatedly PK you until you quit the game". Bit of paraphrasing there but, you
get the picture.

I have always treated this person fairly, even after bad-mouthing our entire
clan I gave him a fair shot at joining when he applied.

I have seen nothing but trolling from him for the entirety of having known him.
It seems with this particular person there is no personal accountability for
his wrong-doings. It's one thing to be a jerk and own up to it.
It's quite another to feign obliviousness and continue on playing the victim.

Add starburst to EQ-Illegalspells +++++
Note #38443
posted on Ideas
Thursday, January 11, 2018 @ 05:24
Reply to: Note 38380 posted by Dyers

Addressing notes in order...
 
1. If your issue is that you think class/subclass skills are too weak then why
ask for a nerf? How does other peoples' use of items/skills/spells while
pupping hurt you? The only clan I know of with a starburst staff is ... AMAZON.
If you'd rather see us make a level 1 staff of invisibility that is
a very quickly written note. But that doesn't solve the problem (for you), just
transforms it into a new one (for you).
2. A spell doesn't simply "fade out" like you would expect from something like
"swinging your hammer around", it's FREAKING MAGIC not a physical skill that
is based on your ability to "swing a hammer around, striking multiple targets
in rapid succession". What is your issue with people using the things they have
available to them in ways that benefit them?
3. Yea I've got nothing for this. Except, how does a high tier spending a few
minutes in a low level area negatively impact you personally? Also, the player
in question would need to be level 111 to use a starburst staff which means
they're probably killing level 150 mobs. Not exactly a "newbie area".
4. So absolutely no change to your gameplay. Glad you agree.
5. Yes.
6. If this is the case we should probably disallow any staff from having a
combat spell above... Let's say level 100? No.. Let's drop that to 50.
Why do you have a problem with people getting faster pups than you?
7. I agree with your sentiments, but this doesn't just affect pCleric. It would
negatively impact ALL players who use a starburst staff.
Also.. "when people routinely did 6second pups". Indicates a past tense.
8. Valid. But also, no matter what changes are made people will always find the
fastest way for them to do the most damage. And then you have a new "problem".
The issue with grouping is that there is such a major power gap between those
that will group and those that have decided they are faster solo. With the
exp difference between solo/group it's very easy to get into a group that is
not worthwhile vs going solo for a higher tier. Finding the right group of
people is often more trouble than going solo. Nerfing staves won't change that.
9. I have no idea how increasing the exp per pup would somehow make pupping
less "boring". Seems like this would have the opposite effect. Reduces spam?
Type 'info powerups'. You're welcome.
10. See explanation number 8.
 
Maybe I'm biased because our starburst staff is one of the most utilized items
in the game, who's to say? But like I said, we can always replace it with a
level 1 staff of invisibility. Show of hands? (Literally, there's a vote now)
 
I am pretty much anti-nerfing. If things need balanced, nerfing is almost never
the answer. But that all depends on the how and why of it. Do we want to remove
our players' ability to improve their character as efficiently as they possibly
can? Or do we want to make more ways for characters to improve themselves
efficiently? Or a third option is to make it as difficult as we possibly can
for people to make gains in the game. Maybe we should add loot-boxes?

Does anyone use amazon's leopard blood potion?
I ask because we're considering replacing it with something more useful.
 
If a lot of people use it then we may end up leaving it, if not then we can
all come up with something that more people can benefit from!

Join test raids!
Note #1062
posted on Raiding
Thursday, December 14, 2017 @ 02:29
Kobus, Moradin and Ast are trying to get people together for test raids and you
should definitely consider joining us if you have the chance.
 
Test raids cost nothing to join* (except for time) and there are no penalties
for joining. Test raids will however teach you a lot about the Aardwolf clan
raiding system. You don't need to be a Tier 9 or SUPERHERO or even in a
PK clan to join in, but you should be at least level 100 or 150 for the lowest
level raid.
 
We will be doing test raids every night over the next couple weeks (hopefully).
Test raids will most likely take place during the later evening (MUD time).
 
Things you should know:
 - THERE ARE NO PENALTIES!
 - You MUST be in a clan to join. Not in a PK clan? NO PROBLEM. You can still
   join in on the test raids.
 - You might use some of your potions.
 - Late joiners are welcome.
 - More people = better, so come join us!
 - You will probably die (or suicide) repeatedly.
 - Having no idea what you are doing or what is happening is normal.
 - Level 50 is the absolute minimum for a test raid, but you're basically
   cannon fodder at this level range.
 - Raids take time, you should have at least 30-60 minutes available if you
   want to participate. More time is better. This could take hours :)
 - You will need to follow instructions from the leader of the raid party.
 - A short instructional video will be available to all new members of the raid
   party before the test raid takes place. (Upon request)
 
Rezit has put a lot of time and effort into the test-raid setup and we should
all take advantage of that to familiarize ourselves with raiding. I know that
I personally have never had any opportunities to participate in any raids. At
the very least you will learn bits and pieces about how a clan maze works and
how raid parties, raid timers and raiding groups function.
 
So come join in a test raid today!
 
TL;DR Join test raids! Contact Moradin, Kobus or Ast for info. Evenings MUD
      time are the most likely times for these to take place.
 
PS: I didn't forget Lasher's testraid specific changes! TYVM Lasher

Things you should know:
 - THERE ARE NO PENALTIES!
 - You MUST be in a clan to join. Not in a PK clan? NO PROBLEM. You can still
   join in on the test raids.
 - You might use some of your potions.
 - Late joiners are welcome.
 - More people = better, so come join us!
 - You will probably die (or suicide) repeatedly.
 - Having no idea what you are doing or what is happening is normal.
 - Level 50 is the absolute minimum for a test raid, but you're basically
   cannon fodder at this level range.
 - Raids take time, you should have at least 30-60 minutes available if you
   want to participate. More time is better. This could take hours :)
 - You will need to follow instructions from the leader of the raid party.
 - A short instructional video will be available to all new members of the raid
   party before the test raid takes place. (Upon request)
 
Rezit has put a lot of time and effort into the test-raid setup and we should
all take advantage of that to familiarize ourselves with raiding. I know that
I personally have never had any opportunities to participate in any raids. At
the very least you will learn bits and pieces about how a clan maze works and
how raid parties, raid timers and raiding groups function.
 
So come join in a test raid today!
 
TL;DR Join test raids! Contact Moradin, Kobus or Ast for info. Evenings MUD
      time are the most likely times for these to take place.

You say 'yes'
The Keeper of Stories says, "Excellent! Your first task is to seek out
 Aphrodite and ask for her help with Typhos. She will tell you more,and
 tell you how to proceed."

There's a space missing after the comma.

It is pretty common knowledge that not all mobs can see invisible but this
might not be a commonly considered factor to new goal-solvers. As such I think
it might be a good idea to add "make sure youre visible" somewhere within that
particular helpfile. Perhaps making it part of the first bullet point?

Suggested additional text:
Conversely, many mobs cannot see hidden or invisible creatures. Use of the
'visible' command might be necessary in these situations.

If new bullet point:
It may be necessary to use the 'visible' command as many mobs cannot see
invisible or hidden creatures.

The helpfile for startwar implies multiple options are possible when using
startwar. This isnt the case and the sign at barcett's is correct.
Could we possibly change that helpfile to reflect this?

I see both of your points, valid. It doesn't seem to serve a greater purpose
in communication with other clans that couldn't be served with gclan.

Other than to provide a smaller list of recipients, while still being somewhat
public in nature. Though the extraneous processing may not be worthwhile.

In any case, not the worst idea I've ever seen ;)

In my mind it would work almost exactly like ftalk, wherein each player has a
list (determined by the mud, based on active players of allied clans) that
would determine the possible recipients of the message.

Not necessarily...

This might require a bit more overhead than the typical channel but,
it is totally doable. The MUD would only need to check

once per connect, to add to a list of valid recipients
once per command usage, to send the message to valid players
and
once per target change, to recaulculate the list (per player)
  for adjustment of valid recipients.

To my dearest, Abraham

I long for the scratch of your lush beard. The sea has left me yearning
for the touch of your callussed hands. It has been 469 days since we last
kissed, the thought of once again feeling the scratch of your mustache upon my
mustache makes me quiver. The very sight of the young sailor boys on the decks
of the o-}S.S. Hook{-o makes me weep in remembrance of our younger days
when we would run naked together in the wildflower fields. I dream of the day
when we may lie our nude bodies next to one another, parts to parts, in loving
embrace once again. I have been at sea far too long, and loneliness has taken
it's toll. I touch myself nightly whilst thinking of you and hope that you in
turn do the same whilst thinking of me.

P.S. Do you remember the drawings we made of each other? I do... I do.

turned into GAMES-mostly to keep the children busy-at least during
the festival's infancy. These events would always involve huge feasts and
