Re: Groinkick to work on both genders

this is family friendly game pls no balls abilities I think this ability is all-around inappropriate to this game. Says the blood-and-gore-covered mercenary who routinely brutalizes all manner of creatures! What's wrong with being covered in blood and gore? That's one of Rakon's key accessories!

Re: A few small ooc updates

Oh man, Artus, I'm sorry to hear all of this is going on for you. I wish I could help beyond offering to chat with you... but I have found that sometimes talking about stuff helps you feel a bit better about things. I have unfortunately had some experience with depression and related things, and I k...

Re: Recognition Points

I've been lax in thanking the staff for implementing the additions to the Mercenary Barracks! Mess hall, repairs, and I can finally get Rakon a signet ring, hurray! Thank you for these cool additions!

Re: How do you feel about CLOK's wilderness system?

I like CLOK's wilderness system. I haven't played other MUDs for some time, but I have played a few IRE MUDS over the years, and they have more of the linked areas system. Which is okay, I guess... maybe I don't see a huge amount of functional difference between the systems. That's probably not terr...

Re: Recognition Points

Another thing I'd like to see is a recognition point cafeteria. In books and shows I've read and watched, mercenaries travel in bands and fight together, eat together, and protect one another. If we consider the first and last a done deal as a thing of the game, then why is it that they don't get a...

Re: One of the hardest things as a developer...

I tend to leave chat off most of the time, with exceptions for if I've asked a question on questions channel and sometimes discussion or answers spill over onto chat. I use CLOKGear for Mudlet so the channels are in smaller type at the top of my screen, but even that is a touch distracting sometimes...

Leatherworking: Studding with metal

I'd like to be able to stud leather items with metal. I tried doing this today and while I had bars of tiny, small, and standard size on the worktable with the item I wanted to stud, I was told by the system that I didn't have the right material there.

Thank you for this! As a recently re-returned player (somebody staple me or something) I found I not only had some new things to learn about but had largely forgotten a lot of the older commands I used to know.

Re: Guilds and Roleplaying and Mechanics, Oh My

This was actually a very interesting read. I think for Rakon, if you wanted to get some more bang for your buck, maybe have him pick up a short sword to use with a dagger? Or maybe a rapier? A lighter, faster sword would allow for him to have a similar fighting style from an IC point of view, while...

Guilds and Roleplaying and Mechanics, Oh My

Last night I asked about the mercenary guild on the Questions channel, and I wanted to expand the topic somewhat in a non-in-game-spammy way. I want the GMs, especially Jirato, to know where I'm at. My primary focus is roleplaying. When I created Rakon I had a general idea of what he's like; what he...

Thanks for all the responses and input, folks! I've since bumped into a few people IC and at least chatted a bit with them. I'm also tossing in the occasional peanut-gallery comment on ESP. Settling in slowly! I look forward to being Rakon at more of you in the near future. :)

Unable to change phpbb theme

I thought I'd see what the other themes available here looked like and I selected the "Wild West" theme, thinking it kinda fit CLOK, but decided I didn't like it all that much. I've looked at the UCP a dozen times and there seems to be no theme change option under that theme. Is it possible for a bb...

Where do people generally gather on CLOK? I saw a few people but they mostly cruised on by before I could do more than get a look at them.
