Re: Fancy new metals

I already know what I want to do, it's just going to take me awhile to implement. Not a ginormous priority at the moment.

Re: Death about to become more dangerous

It's a balance of game versus lore. You are correct that undying-ness is never a guarantee and any death you suffer could be your last. But, game-wise, I cannot really enforce that without majorly upsetting players. I cant go deep into the lore details behind what you see and experience in the death...

Re: Death about to become more dangerous

Itll be very obvious if you pay it off, wont be able to just accidentally do it... Maybe I should just write a detailed guide for it if people are struggling with it.

Re: Death about to become more dangerous

Sorry if you felt mislead. Puzzle is more in the sense that we're not going to hold your hand and tell you exactly where and how to pay off your debts, not puzzle in the sense that you must solve these riddles etc to get out of death. I dont feel like I ever hinted at random permadeath, that would b...

Re: Fancy new metals

Ah.

I'm not too good with creating lore. I'll definitely try to come up with something though. Kind of disinclined to attribute it to Nuum though just because everyone is so into Nuumish stuff. Need to show the other cultures some love too!

Fancy new metals

After a recent internal discussion, we decided to add some more fantasy-ish metals with magical properties to help broaden the choices from riversteel bloodglass, celestium, and nethrium. Both new metals have a bonus, and a slight penalty... Some players have already discovered and begun to use Oric...

I was actually halfway through working on something like this when you posted. It's not going to be automatic like that, unfortunately - too much work for now, but it will be far less ambiguous.

Poll: Daily Maintenance/Room Saver

The daily room saver function runs at 6AM Eastern time (4AM in-game time). Formerly, the entire MUD (including connections/disconnections, NPC actions/combat, chat, etc) would freeze for several minutes while it ran. About a year ago, I changed this to a threaded call that runs in the background. Wh...

Re: A note on bans, appeals, and circumvention

I don't really expect any of these previously banned players to log in and start playing again, but on the off chance that they do (and read this), please be mindful of the following: 1) Don't tro...

Re: On Alts: A Plea from the GM Team

Just a quick note, I went ahead and pulled the plug on the "AltBlocker" system this morning. After some careful thought, I felt it wasn't exactly fair for us to decide to limit a person's ability to switch alts just because we felt they had "too many" or what not. Play who you want, how you want (wi...

Game is fully up and operational with 13 players and 3 GMs connected. It runs on the same server as this BBS, so if you're able to get to the BBS you should be able to get to CLOK.

Event Staff rework

I am currently tossing around an idea to rework the Event Staff role to be a lot less behind-the-curtain and keep it more like the Builder role where it doesn't reveal as much of the gritty GM details that can ruin the game for some. Idea is for Event Staff members to run minor NPC events, merchants...

Re: Monks under review

The idea behind spirit augmentation duration is to add a constant demand for monks rather than having a one time/short term use.

Main way answering requests goes, is when I'm actually online and available to work requests, when we do a "gm who", we'll see an "Open Request" next to a player's name if they have a request in, then I view that request, determine if it's something that can be done within the time frame that I plan...
