Re: MUSHclient in Windows 10 with custom styles?

My Windows 10 color scheme is set at "automatically pick an accent
color from my background" and MUSHclient is colored the same as
File Explorer, for example.  When MUSHclient is the active application
the title bar has the right color.  When it is inactive, the title is white.
The same behavior as File Explorer.
The scroll bars appear to have no color change in either application
on background change or when active or inactive.  Seems to be doing the
right things for my configuration.
Change 'torch' social output

The torch social output is currently set to:
PYRO!!!  You set fire to your school and stand in the shadows snickering.

Could we change 'school' to something more lighthearted like a 'fishbowl',
or 'S&D plugin', or 'yule log'.  I'm not the most sensitive person around but
real people are losing real lives over stupid things such as setting fires.

The 'school' really makes it cringe-worthy.  Was probably funny at one time but
times sure have changed.  So should this social.

What if the OPK flag setting was reversed some.  Instead of having to wait
3 days to remove if on and 24 hours to add if off, try 3 hours to remove
if on and 3 days to add if off.  Shoots, scale those numbers whatever they
may be to be directly proportional to tier number, like manor discounts.
This will allow those feeling griefed to get back to 'normal' sooner while
having to wait longer, and think longer, about turning it back on for the

Have the 'newb' place the item on the market and buy at cost.
Then teach/show them the help files and information
for aarditem best practices.

Or just do the second part.

It's tedious but you can also mass collect the apple press portal from the

In the area "The Call to Heroes" when you visit Nakor Greenleaf in
"Nakor's Tent", you help him with his armor then he leaves west.  When you
go west to "Moruk Command" Nakor has this exchange:

Nakor Greenleaf says 'Well lads, 'tis time to unleash hell. So'bu, take
the swordsman and destroy those pesky'
Nakor Greenleaf exclaims 'Legionaires. Ah'kir, take the cavalry and run
rampant through the Barbarians!'

The sentence starts in "says" and finishes in "exclaims".  How about:

Nakor Greenleaf says 'Well lads, 'tis time to unleash hell. So'bu, take
the swordsman and destroy those pesky Legionaires.'
Nakor Greenleaf exclaims 'Ah'kir, take the cavalry and run rampant through
the Barbarians!'

Hitting it with the newbie sword and occasional kicks.  
I attacked the mob six times resulting in these number of rounds of combat
before stopped:  24, 24, 54, 4, 11, 4
I was accustomed to results in the 4 to 12 range and fleed after about 20
before reporting the bug.

Not a bug, carry on.  But maybe the max can be lower, like 24, with a
cooldown.  Hitting over and over is rather boring but can skill mine
given patience and desire to do mind numbing tasks.  Which quite 
honestly is not that bad after a long day of work, sitting down with a 
plate of fish sticks and chips and Netflixing a movie.

I went to beat up on the HUGE practice dummy (YUGE?) in The Aylorian Academy,
room Practice Dummy Storage, to see damage numbers from a rebuild and
train adjustment and had to flee to stop combat.  All other times I've hit
this mob resulted in stopped combat after a handful of rounds.  Didn't
happen this time.  Kicked it too hard?

'goals faerie' lists two results:
FT1 Reach the Seelie Courts in Faerie Tales I.
Ft2 Reach the Seelie Courts in Faerie Tales II.
One has a 'T' and the other a 't'.
Both respond to either case.
