OOC: Nether-experiment failure and warning

Post by Rias » Tue Aug 12, 2014 12:06 pm

OOC:

So, while doing some testing with some nether-related code and things, I may have accidentally caused the server to become sentient and ... upset. Something very creepy happened that I know I didn't code in.

So! Keep on the lookout for possible signs of server sentience/nether-taint/rebellion against the humans that foolishly continue to attempt to control and manipulate it. Report any findings here. Your assistance is appreciated!

Clarification: Yes, this post is OOC, so it isn't related to IG events or factions or whatever. Yes, something creepy and unexpected did happen, seemingly as a result of OOCly testing and tampering with nether-related things that were themselves very creepy lorewise. Yes, Rias is glad this didn't happen at night when all the lights were off.
The lore compels me!

That's not worrisome at all...
You overhear the following rumor:
"I saw one of those Shadgard folk come barging into Grif's and shoot one of the patrons on the spot. Shadgard must be a pretty rough place with such outlaws running rampant."

The problem with 'details' or 'pics' is that the nether-related code in question is a secret part of a new mechanic we are working on. So to completely reveal the creepiness of it we would also have to reveal the secret behind the new mechanic. Once the new mechanic is wildly known THEN we would be more inclined to show the nitty gritty of what happened.

Secrets within secrets.... so secretive!

Don't worry, if there is creepy to be found, I'll find it.
