Re: Mafia plot channel should be off if all mafia are dead
Friday, January 26, 2018 @ 11:44
I think this should be a setting that the game master can toggle, similar to hyper. It is a legit strategy for the vigilante to try to convince others that the mafia are still alive and we have to lynch some people. It is already tough enough for the vigilante to win! No reason to keep the mafia stage IF it is clear everyone has figured it out and knows, but I don't think it should automatically be removed. A toggle will solve the issue, and keep misinformation as a strategy. Given how Mafia is basically a game of paying attention, knowing roles/rules helping players who aren't paying attention should be limited.
Allow group restores for 2 tps.
Thursday, January 25, 2018 @ 21:38
Right now you can restore a single person for 1 TP, and the entire MUD once an hour for 2 TPs. My idea is that you can use a command to restore your group's HP for the cost of 2 TPs. This should be a mudside command, with no imm's required. Would help with some epics that might otherwise fail and frequently end up with a global restore anyways, but would be able to be done without an imm. I'm not convinced it is that abusable, no one is going to waste 20 tps in order to complete an epic. But if people disagree abuse can be limited by putting a timer, maybe once every 30 minutes over the entire MUD...

Re: Increase powerup tnl
Thursday, January 4, 2018 @ 22:26
Reply to: Note 38395 posted by Redryn > (And I think that there would be a psychological impact - > more of a dopamine hit, making pupping more addictive somehow). I disagree with this idea for this very reason. I don't look at the reward, I just look at the number of pups, and the more I can get the better! Even if I only have 5 minutes to pop in and get a few pups I feel like I've accomplished something. If the TNL were increased it would take much longer to see that counter go up. When there is no end point (though of course there is a practical end point) and you have endless pups ahead of you, the fact that you can at least do them quickly, one shot at a time in 30-60 seconds helps make it easier to start that climb.... I get that everyone responds different and has differen motivations. I just wanted to share the other side, and why, for me, a higher TNL would be a demotivating thing.

Re: No Santa this year
Sunday, December 3, 2017 @ 17:27
I'm not sure I understand the premise behind this idea. The whole point of ideas board is to suggest changes to features in the game. Many times those ideas result in a benefit that the person hopes to take advantage of. I do do not think that means the person suggesting is unappreciative of the underlying feature or greedy. I do think some notes in the past asking about the timing of the appearance of Santa have bordered on the trolling line, but I do not think we should allow the features and rewards to be based on the reactions of a few free trolls. Personally I love Santa, whenever he appears. It's a neat little feature that is unique and fun. I hope he deems us worth of a visit this year, but if he doesn't come it wouldn't be the end of the world. Even if a few people are greedy and trolling about the feature, and I am not sure that is the case, I don't think that is a reason to remove it.
Re: Winds of Fate +
Monday, November 27, 2017 @ 09:28
I think for the purposes of discussion it might be useful to define exactly what we mean when we say difficulty. For me it means how long does the average run take. Some people may have a different definition. If the mobs are low risk and there is no dice roll to see who randomly dies then some could say it's not difficult. That's fine, we all have our own definition, but when it comes to epic areas I'm absolutely fine with an area that takes 20-60 minutes to complete, with little risk to your body, but puzzle solving/shared exploring taking up a large portion of that time. I know on at least one of the recent "solo" runs, though the note only had one person, there were three who took part. One had to leave early, and I got nearly to the end. I got no reward and technically "wasted" over an hour, through double and missed quests, because I wasn't able to get an item that is required in order to rejoin the run in progress. So can't let the notes of small runs be the only measure of difficulty or what it takes to complete. Addressing the idea that you'll get a reward after 56 runs I don't think that is the case. I've never been good at math, but I can use wikipedia! Assuming that there are 56 different random cards each with an even chance of coming up, it will take on average 256 runs for a single person to collect all the cards. Of course those odds will change if there ends up being a secondary market, but I know personally no way I'm selling cards until I have at least two, maybe three, of the same ones. If you're interested in the math here it is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coupon_collector%27s_problem But ask someone else if you have questions, I've never been good with big Os or backwards Es. I guess what I'm saying is, right now I think it is within the range of acceptable difficulty (meaning time). Especially when you factor in that some rank equipment is effectively impossible to earn, it helps to have some on the other end of the scale to balance it out! I like the discussion, but personally I'd rather wait to see how it shakes out in actual practice before any major difficulty shifts are contemplated.

Re: OPK Restrictions for New Players +++
Saturday, October 21, 2017 @ 19:15
Reply to: Note 38027 posted by Dyers I think a tier is probably too long. First remort or 300 hours they are no longer officially newbs and probably have gotten a taste of the harshness of the mud. The idea is not to protect newbs in my mind. It's to make sure they don't turn on the OPK option BEFORE we've hooked them and shown them all the MUD can offer beyond OPK. Warning is great, but people don't read warnings and those that do probably don't fully grasp what happens to a non-remort/non-tier OPKer at times.

Bananas Game Tomorrow! Free TPs and Gold!
Friday, August 11, 2017 @ 20:20
I will be hosting the second public Bananas to Bananas game on the gametalk channel at 12:30pm mudtime Saturday August 12! My aim with the game was to be able to host a game where players have a bit of fun and where the best scripter and googler won't have any advantage! If you've ever played Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity then this game should come very quickly to you :) The prizes will be as follows: 1st) 1 Trivia Point 2nd) 2 million gold Raffle) 1 million gold I will go over the rules before we start, but the basic gameplay goes like this: 1) Before the game starts, you will send me a tell "tell mendaloth deal" and you will be sent your initial card deck via a note on the GAMES board (example note below). After that point each time you play a card you'll get a tell with a replacement card. You should keep track of your own deck. I'll tell you how to get a reminder sent to you, but because of length restrictions on tells it'll only have the names of the cards. 2) I will chose a random green banana, which is an adjective. You'll chose 1 from your initial deck of yellow bananas, which are nouns or gerunds. You'll send me the yellow banana from your hand which you think is a 'best match' for the green. This might sound a little confusing, but I give extra time the first round for you to figure it all out :) A quick note about "Best Match": It's subjective. We will have a rotating judge from among the partipants. They will pick the top three that they think "match." And everyone will vote on those 3. Match may turn out to be anything, maybe even the opposite or something that just made them chuckle :). Those are the basics, I'll fill in the details as we play. The first person to get their card matched *twice* wins!! The second place prize will likely just be randomly chosen among all the people with 1 card when the game is over. Here is an example deck: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From : Mendaloth: Your Deck for the Bananas to Bananas game (1661) Waterfalls - "Don't go chasing waterfalls..." *TLC* (1295) School Buses - Large, yellow buses used to take children to school. (1527) The Mississippi River - The Algonquin words "Misi sipi" mean "big river." *What's Algonquin for "muddy"?* (566) Fly Fishing - * ... if you can"t catch flies any OTHER way ...* (723) Herb Gardens - Rosemary, Basil, Chive . . . *is it a herb garden or the cast from a British drama?* (1400) Steve Martin - 1945 , American comedian, actor, writer, and *"wild and crazy guy."* (1285) Sand - The desert, the dunes, the beach, and in your shoes. And here is an example note that only the judge will see every round. As you can imagine once you have more than 10 partipants, the note will get very long :) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From : Mendaloth: The cards played for round #2 Here are all the cards that were played last round. You have to pick the top 3 that you think best match the green card from the round. Send your top choices via a tell like this 'tell mendaloth 12,5,6' where the numbers correspond to the cards you think are 'best.' The Green card from last round was: Popular - (wellliked, accepted, preferred) Here are the Yellow Cards the players played: (678) Grave Robbers - *Famous for their bodies of work.* (1163) Porsche Boxster - A twoseat, six cylander roadster elegant design and superior drivability.* (822) Julia Roberts - 1967, American actor and *Pretty Woman*. Also starred in *Steel Magnolias*, *My Best Friend's Wedding*, and *Erin Brockovich.* (1409) Strawberry Shortcake - *Summertime and the eating is easy* ... (282) Campfire - S'mores and songs. Gather 'round! (110) Artists - So creative! While I've tested the thing quite a few times, I reserve the right to just randomly assign the prizes if the system completely fails :) Hope to see everyone on the gametalk channel! Best, Mendaloth

Change Help Dead Ideas
Tuesday, July 11, 2017 @ 11:21
People see dead ideas come into the game and think, well that one made it in maybe I should ask for this one. I have always thought of dead ideas as a list of things that have been suggested and suggested, argued, and debated over and over that everyone pretty much knows all the reasons/arguments on both sides, but for whatever reason it hasn't been implemented. No idea if that is the true reason for the dead ideas, but if it is I would suggest it might be better to change the help dead idea help file to better reflect this. It currently reads: The following help files contain arguments that constantly come up on the ideas/feedback boards (as well as elsewhere), and are accepted as 'dead'- the ideas will not be implemented. I would suggest something closer to: The following help files contain arguments that constantly come up on the ideas/feedback boards (as well as elsewhere), and are accepted as 'dead'. Some are added because they are not worth the development time, or they are not the direction the Imms think the MUD should go in. Some of the ideas may have some merit. Some of the ideas might even someday be implemented, but all the arguments for and against have been hashed and rehashed so much it is just not worth anyone's time to discuss further.

Rarish Tier Mana Potions for Sale....
Monday, June 19, 2017 @ 19:33
I have (95) (K) (Magic) (Glow) (Hum) Crystal Lotus Elixir (200) That I am looking to get rid of. For those not familar these are potions that you can quaff at level 200, but that contain 5 Level 291 Black Lotus Spells. Your normal 201 Mana potion will give you 1608 mana, these bad boys will give you an incredible 2910 points of mana! Great for a new Superhero just starting out who doesn't have the mana. I unfortunatly never have a use for them with max mana and not a lot of time at the keyboard I haven't run out in a long time. Since I would rather have the 95 item slots, please make an offer and they are yours! P.S. Full disclosure, when I say these are rarish, I mean that they are not able to be purchased at a shop or anything, they are a goal related reward.

Reply to: Note 16193 posted by Redryn I see what you are saying, there are some meanings of prejudice that don't make sense, but I think what is there now is acceptable. One of the definations of prejudice is an "unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand." See the first defination here: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/prejudice I read the long description to be syaing the mob is attacking, not because they are angry or have some bad feelings toward you, they are aggro and attack everything. I think it fits.

Help group, small groups
Wednesday, May 24, 2017 @ 08:54
Help group currently says: Group Flag [Public/Private]: Flag the group public or private. The default setting for groups that consist of more than one player is public. Public groups can be seen by anyone in 'group list'. Private groups can only be seen by members and people who have been invited to join the group. To more fully document how it works I'd suggest saying: Group Flag [Public/Private]: Flag the group public or private. The default setting for groups that consist of more than one player is public. Public groups that have more than one member can be seen by anyone in 'group list'. Private groups can only be seen by members and people who have been invited to join the group.

It should be opt-in, since I know some people are hermits, or in the case of raids might not want people to know who is home. BUT since community is so important to a game like this, I think it'd good to be able to see neighbors. Apparently my neighbor had rung my bell a few times, and I've done the same but unless they put their name on their porch no way to know who lives where. Would be nice to be able to say hi to people who live in the neighborhood!
Re: Changing weapon damage types
Sunday, May 14, 2017 @ 13:05
Agree with Quadrapus here. The cost of changing up weapon damage types, on top rebuilding mastery, is too high. The recent class change was a great step, but I still think people don't pull the trigger on changes like this because of the costs like changing weapon damage type. I have 41 weapons give or take, less than some others. At 5.3M per TP that's 434M gold that I'd have to spend just to change the weapons. Everytime I've changed classes I've liked it, and it's breathed new life into the game for me. Trying new skills, and exploring new classes keeps the game interesting. I like Quadrapus idea to add a flag to the weapon for 5 Tps to have it set to your highest damage type. But I'd lower that cost to 2 TPs. Let you either set the damage type manually to a damage type for those peksy immune mobs, and also allow you to set to "highest mastery damage". Alternatively, I think it'd be good to be able to change all your owned weapons for something like 10 TPs. It's still a cost, but I think it's a low enough costs that I'd do it :) And before someone points it out, yes I know, we are being min/maxxers. We always have the choice to not get the greatest benefit out of our mastery. But to pretend like that's not something most people would consider after investing hundreds of thousands of QPs and billions of gold kind of seems silly to me...but figure someone will say it, so I'll post the response before you do!

Reply to: Note 37174 posted by Vespar I think of dead ideas less as ideas that will never be implemented, and more ideas that have been argued, suggested, hashed and rehashed so much that everyone knows the arguments for and against...it's just not worth getting into it anymore. They may or may not be implemented, and the reason they aren't implemented today may just come down to - would take too much time. But I don't think the fact that dead ideas have been implemented somehow makes having dead ideas a bad idea. So I guess I'm suggesting "Removing dead ideas" should be added to the dead ideas help file!

Re: Newbie OPK
Friday, March 17, 2017 @ 13:56
Reply to: Note 36966 posted by Zoot I like giving newbies some sort of option to remove OPK easier than the rest of the MUD. Zoot's suggestion of one free OPK set that you can opt out of at any time is a good one. I'd also be fine with a system that lets newbies opt out or in at any time (maybe only let them do it in a saferoom to avoid them abusing it). Saw a newbie yesterday who added the flag without fully realizing how quickly and repeatedly they'd die. Seemed to really give them a bad impression of the MUD. While I won't deny that PK can be one sided, hate to expose newbies to that before they have had a chance to explore all that MUD can offer. At least without the ability to go back to the "default" quickly... If some sort of easy opt out system isn't in the cards, maybe preventing the flag from being added until R3 or something might be a good idea.

Info -h triv
Tuesday, March 7, 2017 @ 13:20
When you type "info -h triv" you get this message: No info history to display for trivia mobs. I got excited and thought for a second it was a hidden feature that wasn't documented yet, but just killed a trivia mob and still don't have a history. Guessing this is something that is used behind the scenes to show the message when you get a trivia mob since it says: "The trivia mobs option cannot be set via this command." when you type: info triv If that's the case I'd just have it say something closer to the error message you get when you type info -h on a channel that doesn't exist. That is currently: Syntax: info -h [channel] Type 'info' with no arguments to see the list of info channels. Type 'info' with no arguments to see the list of info channels.

Add More SH Gquest Ranges
Thursday, January 5, 2017 @ 11:38
Background ---------- There are currently 91 players online at level 200 and above. There are currently 142 players online who are level 1-199. Looking at the gquest ranges there are 47 gquests for players level 1-199, and 3 for players level 200 and above. That works out to be an average of 3 players for every gquest from level 1-199, and over 30 players for every gquest in the range of 200 and above. The Idea -------- To make the ratio similar you'd need to have 30 gquests in the 200-201 range! I think adding 3 more, for a total of 6 would be an excellent first step. This would be half the ratio to 15 players per gquest. I think even 9 gquests that include the 200-201 range would be fair. Disadvantages ------------- * It would slightly increase the length of the gquest cycle, but considering how quickly 200-201 gquests go compared to the length of a No Winner or lower level gquest, the total affect will not be significant. We are talking about adding 3 or 6 FAST gquests to 50 that already exist. Advantages ---------- * More activities for superheroes to participate in besides the grind. * More frequent means there is a greater chance you might win if the pro- gquesters are asleep. * Makes Aardwolf even greater!!! Thanks for considering the idea! Mendaloth P.S. In developing this note I gathered a bunch of data to help me figure out the best way to make the case. I looked at the number of players for every level and how many gquest ranges they have access to. Fun fact for your next Aardwolf cocktail party, levels 191-193 have access to the most GQ Ranges at 4. Every other level, at least of the players online I checked, has access to 3 gquests.
