I've received enough questions to be able to form a trivia game.
Thanks for everyone who submitted a question!  Stay tuned for the
date and time for the upcoming trivia game.

Next weekend is my birthday, so we'll probably run it in two weeks. :)

Trivia Slam Submissions Needed
Note #1910
posted on Mudinfo
Thursday, March 7, 2019 @ 13:54
Hi mudders,

For an upcoming trivia slam event, I plan on asking player created questions!
I will be asking questions that a player has created.  Of course, when
the event is going, the player who submitted the question will not be
able to answer it.  Credit will be given to the player for each question
asked on the trivia channel.

If you'd like, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could come up with a question
and the correct answer, and send it to me on the personal board.  You can send
me more than one question, but I will only be asking one question from a single
player.

The topic can be absolutely anything!  Real life, Aardwolf, the otherworld...
whatever you like.  I plan on running this game near the end of the month, so
I'll be taking submissions for a couple weeks.  Also, I won't be replying
to notes to let you know I've selected your question unless you ask me
to do so.

Looking forward to your submissions!

Good day Aardwolf,

If you've been reading the Bugs board, you'll have seen the discussion
on the precious flag being added to Winds rank equipment. Turns out, this
was something done in error (who knew). 

Starting tomorrow I'll be able to take your current rank items which
have the precious flag and remove that flag. For those who don't have 
rank equipment yet, don't worry as I've stripped it from the code
so new ones will pop without the flag.

Thanks!

Good Day Aardwolf,

The information in the previous post is now null and void.

Hopefully this will be the last update post in a while.

I have rewritten the Rank Equipment Code. You may no longer hand in 
incomplete cases. You must collect all 56 cards.

I have rewritten the sign in Erol's room because there seemed to
be a lot of confusion on how to acquire the equipment. Please
let me know via typos or personal board if there should be any
further changes to make it easier to understand.

Once again, thank you for all your support in this.

Winds of Fate - Clarification
Note #1906
posted on Mudinfo
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 @ 11:58
Greetings Aardwolf,

Just wanted to clarify a couple of things for Superheroes who are completing
the Winds of Fate epic.

1) The sign at the forge has been updated because some folks were
having problems with what to do. Namely, only one case should be present
in your inventory at the time of item creation. Be advised, you can
use a case with one card in it to collect the rank items (however
it will be pretty bad equipment and I'd advise against it)

2) People had been asking me about post-goal equipment. I had stated
that turning in cases would only provide rank 4 rewards upon completion.
I was in error. The first two sets will still provide rank 4 and the
last two will still provide rank 5, the same as the goal

As always, please let me know if you have any further issues
or concerns.

Regards,

Rezit

Manor Cmaze Rooms
Note #1903
posted on Mudinfo
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 @ 16:47
Good afternoon,

I glanced over our manor combat maze rooms to ensure they follow our
rules that allow the flag to be present:
- Manor combat maze rooms are flagged nosummon.
- No mobs can reset in manor combat maze rooms.

These rules are listed in help mu-room.

If you have a combat maze room in your manor that was lacking the
nosummon flag, it has been added.  If you have mobs that reset in your
cmaze room, you'll be receiving a note from me shortly to determine
how we will fix it.

Thanks,

Greetings Aardwolf,

Firstly, if you had the opportunity while the area was
open to get rank equipment (prior to this note), please
come and speak with me. AFAIK, the only other person
may be Redryn. If there are others out there. Please
seek me out.

Secondly, I am about to re-open Winds of Fate. As I've
always said, I'm a hack coder at best. I hope I've
found all the issues and testing certainly helped. If
there are more, I will always endeavour to sort it 
out as soon as I possibly can. Just know that it may
take me some time.

Thanks

After some discussion and since interest has been shown, we are now

New December Holiday Event! - White Wolf
Note #1881
posted on Mudinfo
Tuesday, December 4, 2018 @ 22:39
@* * * * * It's the most wonderful time, of the year * * * * *

This year, thanks to some great ideas that have come from o-}HooK{-o
(and inspired by the Ugly Sweater Contest) we have decided to hold a 
White Wolf holiday event. What's a White Wolf, you ask? 


White Wolf is the opportunity to enter into a blind exchange between
clans to change up their Deity, Powerup/Level/Death/Entry/Exit, and their
clan ranks to be a bit more festive (and polite and friendly!).


Now that I've piqued your attention, onto the details!


Timelines


- December 9th 12 midnight CST - Submissions for clans to enter!
- December 10th 12 midnight CST - All clans participating will be assigned
to their White Wolf clans
- December 15th 12 midnight CST - Final deadline to submit your changes.
(This is important - These need to be polite, friendly and clean. If you submit
early there is the chance to revise should it need to be done)
- December 16th - All clans shall get their new "clothes"!
- December 29th - All clans will be taken back to their original messages
and deities.


Helpful hints


- All clan messages use the player's name with %s and level as %d
- You can check your current clan's messages with claninfo  2
- Clan ranks are limited at 20 characters.
- Don't forget both genders!
- Colour codes aren't able to be used anywhere.
- Themes make it better! Try to have everything connected.
- I can't stress this enough! This is FUN and PLAYFUL. Please be respectful
in your choices. We reserve the right to withdraw any of this that doesn't
fall into these rules.
- The first clan to submit fap-related messages will be locked in the
old Daoine clanhall, and it hasn't been cleaned since they were around.
- Submit your request to participate (Needs a leader to submit) via a
personal note to Korridel.
- Depending on participation, there may be prizes.

All,

The description on the light being sold on showcase auction, #84375, is
just a story. There is no tpspend command that will give you 100 tps.
I have had people asking me if this is real, so I want to ensure everyone is
aware they are not buying the ability to buy 100 tps.

As a side note, these stories on my light collection will be just those.
They are collectable hallowed lights that have no other special functionality.
I've had people asking me about this collection.  Every month or so
I will be creating a new light for the collection, with a different
theme, story and stats.  They are for your fun and hopefully enjoyment. :)
