Chaykin says to MrMorden, 'The floor's open to questions...and right now you ARE the floor.'
Lorenzo says to MrMorden, 'any questions?'
MrMorden blushes bright red.
Chaykin says, 'raise your hand if you have a question!'
MrMorden says, 'well really'
Chaykin says, 'er not that it's really needed with one person here'
MrMorden says, 'most of my questions are about where to get skills'
Sandra giggles.
Lorenzo chuckles politely.
Sandra says, 'oh, yea we can't help you with that very much'
Sandra giggles.
Chaykin says, 'you ask mobs 'teach' and they'll let you know if they can teach you something'
Chaykin says, 'you just kinda have to ask all the ones you meet'
Herbert says, 'head for ones that sound right too, if ya wanna learn to cook ask a chef etc'
Lorenzo says, 'and think about what kinds of people woul dknow the skilll you want'

Chaykin nods his agreement with Herbert.
MrMorden says, 'i have knowticed that'

LadyAce says, 'the skills you can learn at lower levels should be easier to find than 
the higher level ones, too'

LadyAce says, 'Lima is in the medieval era'
MrMorden says, 'and thats where oh not for this charater'
Sandra says, 'it's kind of like a map. If you look at how to get from england to peru on 
a map, it's round about that direction'
Herbert says, 'for finding your way round and i know this is dorky, but a real world map 
is a good ROUGH guide'
Lorenzo giggles.

Chaykin pokes Quagmire with Kryptonite. Quagmire says to Phoenix, 'you like watching eh?' Phoenix says, 'unless I think of seomthing' Phoenix says, 'love it' Lorenzo says, 'legend's most popular spectator sport!' Phoenix says, 'acutally too busy to relly be in window' Quagmire says, 'good, then dont come in' Pop says, 'how come set trap is birthplace dependent?' Quagmire winks suggestively at Phoenix. Chaykin says to Quagmire, 'Your turn.' Phoenix grins evilly. Phoenix says, 'is it?' LadyAce was hoping to get comments on quests whose CLUES suck, if anyone has them. BTW. Quagmire says, 'bahahaha, set trap is birthplace dependnent?' Quagmire raises his hand. Quagmire says, 'clues generally suck' Phoenix says, 'that would be the quest that asterix sis working on for um' LadyAce says, 'need more specifics :P' Pop says, 'how can you NOT know how to build a pit trap?' Herbert says, 'i never did find the NEW lima one, but i didnt cry myself to sleep over it' Phoenix says, 'he is afk but ask him asterix, he had complaints on his quest he's doing for some peice of eq' Pop is confused. Quagmire says, 'just my experience that dreams and ingame mob stuff never match up with what you need to get a quest rolling' Quagmire says, 'best example i can think of is musetta in paris' Quagmire says, 'still havent figured out how to get her and marcello back together' Sandra says, 'the traps that can be built are hometown specific, yea. It was done to give a little less of a bonus to some hometowns' Quagmire raises his hand. Pop says, 'it just doesn't make sense though.' Chaykin says to Quagmire, 'Your turn!' Pop shrugs helplessly. Phoenix says, 'so kleiners can set traps with stats?' Straussy says, 'ooh did i miss it?' Phoenix looks up into the sky and ponders. Chaykin waves a welcome to Straussy. Hello! Herbert hugs Straussy. Pop says, 'it would if some of the ones that ancients didn't know how to build involved some sort of technology' Quagmire says, 'could ladyace add some sort of quest clue for how to get into the angry skelton in the temple of moloch?' Chaykin says to Straussy, 'You haven't missed anything.' Quagmire says, 'the way you used to be able to do it doesnt work anymore' Straussy smiles happily. Quagmire says, 'and i dont think anyone figured out the new way' Pop says, 'but digging a hole and putting spikes in it should be fairly straight forward' LadyAce says to Quagmire, 'Idea it for Nestor? (moloch thing)' Pop is old and doesn't even know what moloch is. Sandra says, 'I don't really know why the ones that are limited are limited. Somar would be the one that you should ask on that' Pop whimpers to Sandra. Chaykin says to Pop, 'Go explore carthage!' Quagmire thinks pop, thew whois whore, will want to know what moloch is Pop says, 'is somar here?' Phoenix says, 'okay' Pop peers around intently. Phoenix says, 'I have to afk be back' Sandra says, 'he isn't yet, no' Pop thought this was Q&A, but it is just Q An aura of heavenly light appears above Pop's head. Phoenix says, 'I'll have a question in about 10 minutes when I get back' Phoenix grins evilly. Sandra says, 'well, I explained why it was done. I don't know why he chose the ones he did :P' Pop says, 'I think the first problem was leaving it up to him.' Phoenix wears giant green claws on his hands. Phoenix puts on his elegant black leather slippers. Phoenix says, 'k be back' Chaykin says, 'any other questions?' Quagmire says, 'yeah, i could go for bugging somar about set trap' Quagmire laughs. Pop says, 'well it has a lot of potential although you do have to lug around 30 shovels if you wanted to build 30 pit traps.' Sandra nods solemnly. LadyAce says, 'yea :/ they need charges or something' LadyAce says, 'put it in idea for somar to consider, and I'll toss my in with it' Pop says, 'I think I did right after I learned the skill' LadyAce says, 'er my $.02' Pop shrugs helplessly. LadyAce nods solemnly. Sandra says, 'yea, you did. It's in the bug list' Quagmire says, 'opps, gotta go unlearn set trap' Pop snickers softly. Straussy knocks Pop over and flops all over him. Pop says, 'I need someone to take me on a tour of the inferno as well.' Chaykin says, 'anyone with questions?' Pop says to Herbert, 'are you a god now?' Quagmire raises his hand. Herbert says, 'hahaha more of an augmented human id say'

Pop hasn't played much. Pop looks up into the sky and ponders. LadyAce says, 'she's still around a bit tho, and updating her areas etc' Quagmire says, 'so um, yeah, when can we expect to see some sort of change to PK' Pop says, 'oh cool.' LadyAce says, 'just taking it easy' Straussy raises his eyebrow at Quagmire. Quagmire beams at the shape of a gigantic pike delightedly - such materialism! Quagmire says, 'or to the fishshape' Straussy says to Quagmire, 'What dont you like about it?' Quagmire nudges Straussy. Straussy nudges Quagmire. Quagmire says, 'well, the fact that i need to fishshape to win fights against a plethora of characters might be one reason to change it' Pop says, 'oh, and thanks so much for letting us unlearn skills.' Sandra smiles happily. Sandra says, 'welcome!' Quagmire says, 'wish it would become a yearly thing' Pop drools contentedly. Quagmire coughs loudly. Sandra giggles. Pop says, 'well it made me want to play more!' Sandra says, 'I don't know of any changes coming to pk' Pop says, 'and I got to remove all my stupid mistakes' Sandra cheers for Pop - huzzah! Pop models 13 shiny brand new practices! LadyAce says, 'make sure you do all of yours -- dig out your old chars and give them the once over' Pop says, 'I did' LadyAce says, 'spiff' Pop grins evilly. Sandra says, 'yea, tomorrow is the last of it, when we reboot, it's done' Pop says, 'although I think raskolnikov got deleted' Quagmire says, 'yeah, god forbid you do it again sometime, it might actually encourage playing' Pop sniffles quietly. Sandra says, 'oh lemme dig him out' Chaykin says, 'I made Tempus drag his butt out of archive to take advantage' LadyAce says, 'well, it's easy to recover dead ones' Straussy says, 'i like that certain items have certain effects... gives new purpose to get those items, especially if there wasnt one to begin with or they just werent very popular items' Straussy says, 'as fair as nerfing the fishshape' Pop says, 'I can't believe that we were able to unlearn the skills, makes a big difference.' Sandra says, 'we decided that with all of the changes we've done over the years, it was only fair to do so' Pop says, 'I agree!' Straussy raises his hand. Pop says, 'can someone explain how the new AC scale works?' Pop says, 'oh do you ahve to raise your hand to ask questions?'

Chaykin pokes Straussy with Kryptonite. Quagmire says to Pop, 'from klein: -100 ac, anything else: less.' Chaykin nods his agreement with Pop.

Straussy says, 'any eta on ousting old gear?' Quagmire says to Pop, 'old eq.' Pop gasps at Straussy. Chaykin says, 'you mean eq templates?' Pop says to Quagmire, 'i don't.' Straussy nods solemnly. Sandra says to Straussy, 'None yet, no.' Straussy says, 'some pkers have old gear and its unfair' Quagmire says to Pop, 'you do.' Straussy nods his agreement with Sandra.

Quagmire looks up into the sky and ponders. Quagmire shakes his head. Pop stops using a large sack of treats. LadyAce says, 'when we revised materials, some items stayed the same, some got better, others got worse' Pop says, 'I used to use the huge camping backpack that was -30 but the new one is only -10' Pop puts on his large sack of treats.

Phoenix says, 'so I've really watched, and I get stunned about 60-70% of the time when playing snipers, is that about what we would want or expect it to be?' Hakkim chuckles politely. Herbert chuckles politely. Quagmire rolls around on the ground with laughter. Phoenix grins evilly at Quagmire... Wonder what he's thinking...

Chaykin pokes Hakkim with Kryptonite. Chaykin says, 'you're next, then straussy' Hakkim nods solemnly. Hakkim says, 'now that charmies respond in tells when they report, as to their agg status, I think they should also take orders through tells.' Straussy says, 'well, hmm i had one' Straussy pouts. Shrooms sighs loudly. Straussy smiles at Galahad. Galahad says, 'wow that's an exciting seat' Galahad says, 'and this is a laggy mud' Chaykin waves a welcome to Galahad. Hello! Galahad nods his agreement with Chaykin. Hakkim says, 'only very basic orders, move, kill, rest' Galahad says to Chaykin, 'so I sent my stuff to your game, and I never heard back for it.' Straussy says, 'is there any plans on making traveling by sea more exciting?' Chaykin says to Galahad, 'It's still coming up, you'll hear :)' Galahad says, 'oh' Chaykin says to Galahad, 'It's not going to be a single event, it's ongoing.' Galahad raises his hand.

Galahad tosses a lime in the air. Straussy says, 'will you survive the trip from london to bengal!? stay tuned...' Herbert tugs his disheveled clothes back into a semblance of modesty. Lenore giggles at Straussy. Hakkim says, 'well i was thinking like tunnel rooms where they cant follow, can order them in tells to move west to foloow you through tunnels' Straussy says, 'i really think legend has a great opportunity to offer players cool ships, the better ones armed with cannons etc' Straussy says, 'maybe some sort of random encounter while traveling the seas' Galahad says, 'I've only known one person who could navigate a full blown ship with cannons on his own' Galahad says, 'and that person was me' Hakkim says, 'you have any idea what a pain it is to have to kill a fully equipped doppel and carry his stuff through a tunnel room and repop him?' Straussy says, 'making it more exciting than actually just typing south east north ten times' Sandra says, 'guys, I'm sorry, but my head it aching, and I can't keep up with 3 different conversations' Sandra says, 'Hakkim has the floor' Chaykin scuffles his feet around in the dirt. Straussy shrugs helplessly. Straussy says, 'my bad' Hakkim chuckles politely. Chaykin smiles at Sasha. Cypri smiles happily. Cypri says, 'okay' Sasha grins evilly at Chaykin... Wonder what she's thinking... Cypri says, 'this is me, phoenix' Hakkim says, 'watching the kb and didnt even notice everyone else talking' Hakkim chuckles politely. Asterix looks up into the sky and ponders. Cypri says, 'so you saw that right herbert/' Asterix lies down on the ground and gets comfortable. Cypri says, 'It's usually as bad or worse' Sandra says, 'to answer that, yea, I do know what it's like to have to kill one. Though you can have them drop all and dismiss them now :)' Hakkim says to Sandra, 'true, but is still a royal pain to have to carry their eq through the room, maybe make a few trips, just cause of a silly tunnel room.' Straussy says to Sandra, 'Sorry i thought i had the floor *sheepish*' Chaykin says to Straussy, 'Wait til you're poked with the kryptonite.' Cypri says, 'go ahead' Cypri says, 'sorry' Cypri says, 'I didn't mean to cut anyone off' Cypri says to Herbert, 'so what do you think?' Cypri says to Sandra, 'did herbert show you the log?' Chaykin says, 'okay it's still hakkim's question' Hakkim says, 'good gravy' Cypri says, 'oh sorry' Cypri raises her hand. Sandra says, 'I would say that order should let you order them in a direction, instead of making it work in tells. I think that what is there is a code addition, for the wary/agg' Hakkim says, 'well, yeah I guess if you could order them to move that would do it as well' Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'being able to order dop to move north would be nice' Cypri says, 'or any charmy' Cypri says, 'harme girls' Hakkim says, 'i mean you can order them to flee, why not walk?' Hakkim says, 'o all move north' Hakkim nods to himself. Cypri says to Asterix, 'hey.' Cypri says to Asterix, 'so we did it.' Asterix raises an eyebrow inquiringly. Asterix says, 'what?' Cypri says to Asterix, 'herbert followed me qhile I fought quagmire.' Straussy raises his hand. Asterix chuckles politely. Cypri says to Asterix, 'it went like this 2 stun shots, 2 paras, one mnuiss and another stun shot.' Chaykin says to Cypri, 'Please let hakkim's question finish first.' Cypri says, 'maybe one more after that' Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'sorry I thought he was done or afk' Hakkim chuckles politely. Cypri scuffles her feet around in the dirt. Cypri says, 'sorry hakkim' Hakkim says to Cypri, 'thats what you get for doing your own thinking =P' Hakkim says, 'from now on, let Chaykin do it for you =p' Cypri laughs at Hakkim. Cypri says, 'you got it' Hakkim says, 'anyway, thats all I wanted to know, seems like an idea to me' Hakkim shrugs philosophically. Sandra says, 'sorry, spammed a bit' Hakkim says, 'and I expect to win the buglotto with that one' Hakkim snickers softly. Cypri laughs. Sandra says to Hakkim, 'Did I answer your q?' LadyAce says, 'it's just a random draw :) we don't vote on the best report, i'm afraid. too many!' Hakkim says, 'yeah, with the idea of ordering them to move, that was sorta the idea I had' Sandra nods her agreement with Hakkim. Sandra says to Hakkim, 'Idea it to get credit :)' Hakkim says, 'i was just thinking tells rather than orders' Hakkim chuckles politely. Chaykin says, 'okay straussy is next'

Chaykin pokes Straussy with Kryptonite. Galahad raises his hand. Cypri smiles at Galahad. LadyAce says, 'nothing like ordering your charmies to do something and having your newbie do the same thing' Straussy smiles happily. LadyAce says, 'thinking you were ordering them :P' Cypri giggles. Cypri nods her agreement with LadyAce. Chaykin says, 'after straussy please re-raise if you had questions, lost my queue reconnecting' Krista smiles at Cypri. Cypri says, 'it's the best' Galahad says, 'can we get a nicer seat please?' LadyAce says, 'or, how about this, pointing west, then saying DT, and watching them leave west' Hakkim bows deeply. Cypri nods her agreement with Galahad. Cypri giggles. Cypri says, 'a low sofa woul be nice' Krista joins Cypri's group. LadyAce says, 'cuz they thought you were pointing them to go there :P' Straussy says, 'there should be a better way of travelling by sea... a more interesting experience for us' Sandra raises an eyebrow inquiringly. Quagmire gives a gold receipt worth 6700 dollars to Chaykin. Chaykin giggles at Quagmire. Straussy says, 'maybe not so much "better" but a more adventurous way' Sandra says, 'I dn't think we really have any 'rough seas' to have it be very adventurous' Chaykin nods his agreement with Sandra. Quagmire says, 'there is that storm in malta' Straussy says, 'i would rather it take a little longer to travel from london to bengal for instance but encounter trade ships or pirate-like ruffian ships than get to bengal from london in under three seconds' LadyAce says, 'I think it's a fiction we accept in the name of game play at this point' Chaykin says, 'that sounds cool but I think people would just keep on using their canoes' LadyAce says, 'since the idea of legend is more about the areas, and not so much the getting to the areas' Straussy says, 'but legends dont necessarily have to be areas no?' Quagmire wants to be able to pilot a sub and nuke the immortal office complex Static says, 'if an area were about seas... it'd be different' Straussy says, 'there are legendary figures who represent their lands that players could encounter on the seas' Chaykin says to Quagmire, 'Would it have a screen door?' Cypri nods solemnly. Straussy says, 'i dont mean an area... so much' Straussy says, 'i just thought it might be fun' Krista blinks. Static says, 'having to deal with a lame instanced 5 minute blah to get from the stag to the abbey would be a step backwards in gameplay' Static says, 'imho' Galahad says, 'is it laggy again?' Adamar raises his hand. Galahad says, 'yes it is laggy again' Chaykin says, 'so the answer is there are no plans for different sea travel for now?' Krista smiles at Sandra. Galahad says, 'Thank you Galahad' Krista stands up. Cypri giggles. Straussy says to Chaykin, 'That much is assumed, thank you.' Chaykin nods solemnly.

Chaykin pokes Galahad with Kryptonite. Cypri raises her hand. Chaykin says, 'galahad then adamar then cypri' Galahad says, 'sorry lagged here, gimme a sec to type it' Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri grins evilly. Galahad says, 'ok, my question is kind of interesting' Galahad says, 'I would like to see the imms take a big role in promoting RP' Galahad says, 'and I have an idea' Cypri says, 'I don't htink imms should enforce rp people rp as they wanna no more no less, but go on, I'm inteerested to hear your spin on it galahad :)' Quagmire raises his hand. Chaykin says, 'let him finish his question, unless that was it' Krista shudders. Quagmire says, 'your idea' Quagmire says, 'you didnt say it' Galahad says, 'Wouldn't it be neat IF, a clan (with an approved RP) got some sort of bonus, like auxilliary slot tokens, and maybe strings to wear as long as they are part of the clan' Quagmire says, 'you said you had an idea, not what it is' Chaykin says, 'imms take a big role in promoting rp' Cypri says, 'that imms hsould enforce rp' Cypri says, 'or something close' Herbert says, 'not enforce, that makes us sound uber scary' Galahad says, 'So... for example Knights of Legend could have a string available for them to string to their chest... and basically this would reward for having a clan BUT it would be conditional THAT your clan RPs actively in order to receive this' Cypri says, 'hehe' Cypri says, 'not enforce' Chaykin says, 'promote and enforce are two different things' Cypri says, 'I had brain block' Galahad says, 'in order to receive this bonus' Galahad says, 'I didn't say enforce' Galahad says, 'I said, reward good RP, with themed strings to their clan' Galahad says, 'as an example' Cypri nods her agreement with Galahad. MiniMany says, 'it shouldn't be enforced by imms but by a clan leader' Herbert says, 'ok but who judges cos thats kinda subjective...' Cypri says, 'I didn't mean to misquote, just couldn't scroll back' Chaykin says, 'well let me say this' Galahad says, ' NOT ENFORCE' Galahad says, 'as an option' Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'I know I know sorry gala' Cypri hangs her head. Cypri says, 'didn't mean to misquote you' Galahad giggles. Galahad nods solemnly. Chaykin says, 'I don't think it's likely that you'll see us giving bonuses for RP' Chaykin says, 'with that said though' Galahad says, 'tell me why' Chaykin says, 'there are one or two new things for clans that are in the pipeline as far as I know, just not RP related' Chaykin says, 'and' Galahad waits patiently. Sandra says, 'I would like it if there were more rp, however, it's not something that we will reward for, bribe to get, or judge' Galahad says, 'ok haha' Galahad says, 'sandra you're hilarious' Chaykin says, 'I can say that I personally will be doing a few things to try to get more people to RP and take a little more pride in their chars, so stay tuned for those things' Galahad says, 'because tell me what the LT is if not a bribe' Galahad says, 'send an article get a token' Gho looks up into the sky and ponders. Herbert says, 'a token is a much lesser bribe though' Galahad says, 'send in an article it takes 5 minutes to write' Herbert chuckles politely. Quagmire says to Galahad, 'an organized crime syndicate headed by huma?' Chaykin says, 'if people are writing just to get a token they're doing it for the wrong reasons, honestly' Herbert nods his agreement with Chaykin. Galahad says to Chaykin, 'you're advertising it as an easy token.' Chaykin says, 'it should be something you enjoy doing' Quagmire says, 'you think chaykin's really an uncle? it's his mafioso nickname' Galahad says to Herbert, 'you're saying a small string themed to the clan is too big a bribe?' Chaykin says, 'yeah, just don't ask me about my "business"' Quagmire says, 'you're in the tool and dye business' Quagmire says, 'mostly tools' Chaykin snickers softly. Chaykin says, 'yeah yeah' LadyAce says, 'I think that we go down a long dark road of favoritism the more we start putting imms in a position to judge rp' LadyAce says, 'and styles of rp or whatnot' Chaykin nods his agreement with LadyAce. Galahad says, 'why not have a committee?' Herbert says, 'why dont clans use zips more heavily... its middle road' Cypri giggles. Cypri says, 'yeah' Galahad says, 'a clan submits a proposal, the imms look over it?' Cypri says, 'zips would be it' Cypri says, 'you'd be set with zips' Quagmire says, 'because aux slots have other uses, like PKing' Cypri says, 'maybe' Chaykin says, 'I don't feel like RP is the kind of thing we want to judge period' Cypri giggles. LadyAce says, 'some of the judges might really hate, say, McDougan's style, or McNugget's style -- but players (and the people playing those chars) really love what they do' Quagmire says, 'so, just rubber stamp clan RPs and refuse to grant the STRINGS if they dont match with your string rules for taste' LadyAce says, 'I wouldn't want to pick a type of rp that is allowed or something' Galahad says to LadyAce, 'well by your rules mcnugget shouldn't be allowed to RP her RP' Galahad says, 'last time I checked you can't RP anything but human' Sandra says, 'why shouldn't she?' Sandra says, 'no' LadyAce says, 'our rules have nothing to do with rp' Herbert says, 'you can RP anything you want, just not look like whatever you want' Herbert grins evilly. Sandra says, 'you can't get a nonhuman description' Galahad says, 'you can't claim to be a monkey or something' Sandra says, 'but you can rp whatever you want' Galahad says, 'so why limit descs?' Herbert says, 'Akai claimed to be a monkey for YEARS' Sandra says, 'Warrl is a wolf. Then there's Broeknspring, who is a dog' Galahad says to Sandra, 'you might have to use people anyone has heard of.' LadyAce says, 'nonhuman descriptions tamper too much with the theme of the game. It's a tough line we walk, but we do.' Sandra says, 'You can rp whatever you imagine to be. But if you want a desc, you need to make it human' Sandra nods her agreement with LadyAce. Sandra says, 'you've never heard of Broeknspring?' Chaykin says, 'people are free to RP what they choose, because it's an issue of imagination. we just don't give them the means to explicitly be nonhuman' Gho says to Galahad, 'Who hasn't heard of broeknspring?' Cypri says, 'I like that though' Chaykin says, 'but if they want to act as though they are, it's up to them and we don't restrict that' Cypri says, 'makes things all on the level' Sandra says, 'Warrl I can understand. H e hasn't been around in a while' Galahad says, 'McDougan i would say has a great RP' LadyAce says, 'I would bet that if a newbie walked in and was surrounded by talking chicken nuggets and aliens, they might not think the game was about legend and myth' Cypri says, 'yeah I like mickie d' Cypri laughs. Krista giggles. Cypri nods her agreement with LadyAce. Chaykin snickers softly. LadyAce says, 'but a person who looks like a person, yet strangely acts like a chicken nugget...well, that's a bit more intriguing.' Galahad says to LadyAce, 'but they are... other muds restrict stupid names too.' Chaykin says, 'yeah, we don't restrict the way people act, only the way they look' Chaykin says, 'those are very different things' Cypri giggles. LadyAce says, 'I really wouldn't want to get into the business of requiring rp behavior, or imposing my taste in names on people beyond like, obscenity and collections of symbols' Galahad says, 'well... you know... I don't see much RP going on' Gho raises his hand. Cypri says, 'I see a lot' Sandra says, 'well, lead by example' Chaykin says to Galahad, 'Lead by example, if you RP' Krista blinks. Chaykin says, 'er yeah' Galahad says, 'you're all unrealistic' Chaykin says, 'if you come up with an interesting RP people will follow' Krista stands up. Chaykin says, 'it sounds like a cheese answer but it works' LadyAce says, 'it's definitely true that on muds where rp is required and enforced -- you see more rp' Cypri says, 'you can't reward rp, but zips are free if you want to use 'em' Galahad says to Chaykin, 'it is a cheese answer.' Cypri giggles. Quagmire says, 'you frequently reward PK' Galahad says, 'you do reward articles' Chaykin says to Galahad, 'I wouldn't say it if I hadn't seen it.' Quagmire says, 'championships, 2 v 2's, stock characters, PK games' Quagmire says, 'never an RP game' Galahad says, 'and an article is a joke to write' Galahad says, 'I mean, ANYTHING goes there' LadyAce says, 'there are rp type games and events which have rewards' Chaykin says to Quagmire, 'You'll see that change in fairly short order.' Gho says to Quagmire, 'Tinyplots and the like.' Lorenzo says to Galahad, 'so raise the bar.' Galahad says to Lorenzo, 'you're missing the point.' Cypri sighs loudly. Lorenzo says to Galahad, 'no, not really. I'm just addressing that subpoint.' Galahad says, 'RP is much harder to act than to write' Galahad says, 'you reward a written RP, reward an acted out RP' Chaykin says to Galahad, 'The bottom line is this: we will have events and such forthcoming to promote RP, but we aren't going to give special rewards for it.' LadyAce says, 'written rp is objective, acted out is way way way subjective' Sandra says, 'we reward a submitted and printed article.' Cypri says, 'oh nice' Cypri says, 'I wanna write a sory' Cypri says, 'who do I send it to' Sandra says, 'lt@legendmud.org' LadyAce says, 'lt@legendmud.org baby' Lorenzo says, 'lt@legenm yeah' Sandra giggles. Galahad says, 'my bet is your story will be the only one' Quagmire grovels before Adamar. Gho says, 'anyway, can i ask a question and return to being afk?' Cypri says, 'the problem I see is that you can have a character who's roleplay is to sit all the time, and then by sitting you are roleplaying' Adamar nods solemnly. Chaykin says to Gho, 'Did you raise your hand?' Cypri laughs at Gho. Cypri says, 'good luck' Gho nods his agreement with Chaykin. Cypri giggles. Adamar raises his hand. Gho did. Cypri says, 'I could have waited out my timer by now' Chaykin says, 'adamar was next, then cypri, then gho' Cypri peers at herself myopically. Adamar says, 'couple of things, first thanks for fixing the login align eq issue i had' Galahad says, 'anyway, I am just saying you guys aren't helping RP in any real way' Adamar says, 'second is why do i kept getting lag disconnect' Adamar says, 'like a couple of sec ago' Galahad says to Adamar, 'their ISP for the mud is going crazy.' Sandra says, 'some net issues' Chaykin says to Adamar, 'We've all been getting that.' Cypri says, 'I'm saying that RP is however you play it, your rp can be to sit' LadyAce says, 'not sure. I'm going home to reboot the router to see if it helps when I can' Krista blinks. Cypri says, 'I rp in what I say and how I do things' LadyAce is at work and can't run home right this minute tho Krista stands up. Cypri says, 'I don't want to be requarded for it' Cypri giggles. Chaykin says, 'guys, adamar has the floor now' Gho rp's being a whiny pkiller. Cypri says, 'sorry' Gho snickers softly. Herbert snickers at Gho nastily. Cypri says, 'sorry lag is killing me' Adamar says, 'that is ok, i am pretty much just complainting about the disconnect' Galahad says to Gho, 'attitudes like that ruin rp.' Krista blinks. Cypri beams delightedly. Chaykin says, 'okay it's cypri's turn'

Chaykin pokes Cypri with Kryptonite. Cypri grins evilly. Cypri says, 'okay' Cypri says, 'herbert followed me' Cypri says, 'this is phoenix' Sandra says, 'we have the log :)' Cypri says, 'and it was 80%/? I don't recall I know sweet' Cypri says, 'so what do you think?' Gho stomps on Lenore's toes. Cypri says, 'if you've had a chance to look at it' Sandra says, 'haven't looked at the log yet. But we will' Quagmire says, 'general idioot rule: take the actual number and add 20%' Cypri says, 'I jst think or want some new skill to doge bullets or something' Cypri makes a face at Quagmire. Sandra says, 'yea no that won't happen' Cypri says, 'some way to compete with the things I'm faced against' Sandra says, 'since there are skills that do that, like dodge :)' Cypri says, 'I have that' Cypri says, 'hrmm' Krista says, 'I have dodge' Krista says, 'It doesn'twork' Galahad says, 'there's a dodge skill?' Galahad says, 'really?' Krista nods solemnly. Gho snickers at Galahad nastily. Chaykin says, 'dodge works' Quagmire says, 'dodge, fail targeted shot' Quagmire says, 'jam' Cypri says, 'I'm saying tht snipers are amped hard and I don't know what to do, I counted liets' see, you can verify, you have the log, I got stuned first, and second, I doged or he mised, then he stunned one, maybe twice more' Quagmire says, 'all fun ways' Sandra says, 'it's also a dex skill' Sandra says, 'so I can see why it doesn't work very well for you' Krista nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'I have enough dex to steal' Sandra says, 'I'm aware of what you're saying' Sandra says, 'so?' Cypri says, 'but ok' Krista says, 'So I have no chance ever against snipers' Krista says, 'cos I havcen't got high dex' Sandra says, 'no, you have plenty of chance against them. But you surely can't rely on dodge' Cypri says, 'that's the way every fightgoes and he waits outside my house and jumps time and again if i'm on, I just think that the head shot needs some twaking is all' Cypri nods to herself. Chaykin says, 'there are other ways to win a fight besides dodging' Cypri says, 'just a minor tweakin' Gho says to Sandra, 'Against snipers?' Gho says to Sandra, 'PUHLEASE.' Galahad says, 'guys' Cypri says, 'I'm not counting on dodging, just saying that it's a lil overpowered still, since it's new qand stuff I wanted to get input in' Galahad says, 'Imms' Cypri says, 'but I'm done' Cypri says, 'that' sit' Cypri grins evilly. Cypri says, 'go ahead gho' Quagmire says, 'what, head shots get tweaked i want wfw gone, period, end of story' Galahad says, 'really don't give advice about things you don't know' Galahad says, 'please' Cypri says, 'heh' LadyAce says, 'I think we've gotten a lot of comments about snipers, and it sounds like they're worth looking at' Sandra says, 'this is my opinion' Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'that's all I wanted' Sandra says, 'the difference between a wfw and a stun shot is this' Cypri grins evilly. Sandra says to Adamar, 'Wfw you can't DO ANYTHING.' Quagmire says, 'the wfw happens more often?' Cypri says, 'no lag on a stun shot' Sandra says, 'er, why I said that to adamar I don't know' Krista giggles. Gho says to Sandra, 'You don't get 3 100 hp backstabs on a wfw?' Sandra says, 'You wfw somebody, you have to stand there and hit, no other spell, no skill, nothing' Quagmire peers intently at a serpent's tooth. Sandra says to Adamar, 'Stun shot, you can flee and backstab all you want.' Quagmire says to Sandra, '100 hp backstabs!' Cypri says, 'well one round lag on a stun shot, so if I missed a bash, they can get two shots in' Chaykin snickers at Sandra nastily. Cypri giggles. Cypri says, 'it could happen' Cypri says, 'if you uave no ac' Cypri says, 'I can see a 100 hp backstab' Galahad says to Sandra, 'you know, it was someone's idea ones.' Galahad says, 'once' Cypri says, 'if you had -40 ac or soemthing I bet it could happen' Sandra says, 'let me finish' Sandra says, 'so, yes, *I* do believe that there is a problem with stun + backstab. WIth that COMBO. Not with either separately' Krista nods solemnly. Gho says, 'leading to my questions, precisely.' Sandra says, 'I do not believe that head shots are a problem' Galahad says, 'ya, I agree with sandra' Chaykin says to Gho, 'Your turn is coming.' Sandra says, 'I do not believe shoot is a problem' Quagmire says to Sandra, 'wait wait wait hold on, you're saying wfw stuns arent broken but stuns and backstaba re?' Cypri nods her agreement with Quagmire. Cypri says, 'it's horrible' Sandra says to Quagmire, 'You can't DO anything when you wfw somebody.' Shivan says, 'ooh i missed something juicy' Sandra says, 'you are stuck there, in a lag' Galahad nods solemnly. Sandra says, 'no damage spell' Sandra says, 'no skill' Cypri says, 'that last fight we had, which was fair I guess you got a para, and apra'd again while I was already paralyzed' Quagmire says to Shivan, 'sandra has her head up her ass, apparently i stun too much but wfw's are balanced.' Sandra says, 'you can't even flee' Cypri says, 'and I stood up, bang stunned again it's so crazy' Galahad says to Quagmire, 'raise your mind?' Quagmire says to Shivan, 'got some logs of us fighting?' Cypri laughs. Shivan says, '10 or s o' Sandra says to Shivan, 'Tell me, can you do a damage spell on your wfw'd victim?' Sandra says, 'can you flee?' Sandra says, 'can you kick?' Quagmire says to Sandra, 'his 25 hp gust on that penis war lance takes care of that.' Shivan says, 'no and the inability to flee has almost gotten me dead' Galahad says to Sandra, 'no skills during wfw at all.' Sandra says, 'so get one and do the same' Cypri says, 'yeah not fleeing hurts sometimes' Sandra says, 'so yes, I think that wfw stuns are fine.' Quagmire says, 'hey, are watery death and laval flow also fine?' Sandra says, 'we're talking about stun, not watery death and lava flow' Quagmire raises his hand. Quagmire launches himself across the room and tackles Rusalka to the ground! Cypri grins evilly at Rusalka... Wonder what she's thinking... Herbert gives Rusalka a great big smooch! Chaykin smiles at Rusalka. Gho says, 'actually we're talking about snipers.' Shivan says, 'uh i might have a question, put me in the que :p' Cypri raises her hand. Shivan raises his hand. Lenore beams at Rusalka delightedly. Galahad says to Gho, 'you use the note command?' Galahad raises his hand. Chaykin nods solemnly. Sandra is done, btw. Galahad says, 'test' Gho says to Galahad, 'Once in a while, sure.' Shivan says, 'so what was being discussed/asked then' Sandra says, 'stun + backstab combo' Cypri says, 'see I don't want an unfair advantage, just wanted it looked at, I think it's gho's turn' Chaykin says, 'all right, was the question answered?' Chaykin nods solemnly. Chaykin says to Gho, 'Your turn.'

Chaykin pokes Gho with Kryptonite. Cypri grins evilly. Cypri nods her agreement with Chaykin. Shivan says, 'let me chime in with shooting isn't doing 90 damage anymore, so it is ok :p' Sandra nods her agreement with Shivan. Galahad says, 'guns never really did 90 damage' Galahad says, 'not so much' Cypri says, 'yeah it is because of the ACc changes' Shivan says to Galahad, 'I have logs of them doing so.' Gho says, 'relating to sandra's comments about stun/backstab. are there any plans to not let snipers para from a stun, for a total of 4 backstabs and an immediate flee for another stun shot only to repeat this cycle?' Sandra says, 'plans? No. Discussion? yes.' Quagmire says to Gho, 'please, dont be full of shit, i barely manage 2, let alone 4 backstabs.' Gho says, 'and how long will this be.. discussed?' Shivan says, 'how often does that happen?' Cypri says, 'I didn't get that question' Sandra says, 'I don't know the answer to that :)' Gho says to Quagmire, 'I've seen 5.' Cypri says, 'you got 3 on me, but 4 is a long fight' Quagmire says to Gho, 'i've seen 3.' Cypri says, 'if you're fighting someone who's healing you could get 8' Cypri says, 'but whatever' Shivan says, 'i've seen 4 bs off 1 para...but super rare' Cypri laughs. Shivan says, 'i've also seen 1 :p' Quagmire says to Gho, 'when'd you see 5, morphine?' Cypri says, 'oh off a para' Galahad says, '3 is most I have ever seen' Gho says to Quagmire, 'Vendetta.' Galahad says, 'and I get stabbed a LOT' Quagmire rolls around on the ground with laughter. Shivan says, 'actually maybe it was only 3 from vend, i can't remember' Gho says to Quagmire, 'There may have been a second stun shot.' Cypri giggles. Gho says to Quagmire, 'I have no idea.' Krista stands up. Gho says, 'still, it's the cycle.' Chaykin nods solemnly. Chaykin says, 'the answer is it's being discussed' Galahad says, 'if you don't remember don't make up numbers' Gho says, 'so, no.' Chaykin says, 'okay quagmire next' Galahad says, 'that just makes people think something is wrong'

Chaykin pokes Quagmire with Kryptonite. Galahad raises his hand. Sandra says to Gho, 'If I meant no, I would say no.' Quagmire says, 'if you touch snipers, touch cause mages' Cypri says, 'what does?' Gho says to Galahad, 'Something is wrong.' Cypri laughs. Quagmire says, 'for once in your lives, tinker with them' Cypri says, 'serioualy quag I bet it's been nice going from a tiny bit underpowered to top of the rock, but come on' Shivan says, 'quagmire got stunned for 8 rounds and is bitter!' Gho says to Sandra, 'If you meant yes, you would say yes.' Sandra nods her agreement with Gho. Quagmire says, 'it's mind blowing what bs arguements you'll give to shot mages from getting a go asscleaning' Sandra says, 'so I said it is being discussed. Which is it.' Gho says to Sandra, 'Note the pk activity recently. there's a reason for it.' Gho shrugs helplessly. Shivan says, 'i'm confused what is gho talking about' Cypri laughs. Cypri nods solemnly. Cypri says, 'I was so confused by gho's question' Cypri says, 'completely' Quagmire says, 'wfw? oh you cant use skills! who cares if it's 4 rounds stunned! dont like wfw? sit over water and throw 100 hp awtery deaths at people' Galahad says, 'who's Gho?' Quagmire says, 'still dont like water? lava flow, immolate, firestorm, gust of wind, spam blind' Quagmire says, 'dont like being backstabbed? rockform!' Galahad says, 'ok quagmire' Galahad says, 'here's a question' Quagmire says, 'dont like fighting without preps? dont worry, you wont' Galahad says, 'can you beat a cause mage?' Cypri says, 'all that's useless unconcious' Shivan says, 'Yes we have options, thats why i'm fun to play' Sandra says, 'when backstab costs mana, complain. Until then, sorry.' Galahad says, 'If you can beat someone' Cypri giggles. Galahad says, 'don't complain' Quagmire says to Galahad, 'yeah, i've beaten shivan twice, it took at least a disorient and para or 2 paras in either case.' Galahad says, 'complain when you can't win even one fight' Cypri nods solemnly. Sandra says, 'anyway, who was next? It's getting late' Cypri says, 'that's where I'm at' Chaykin nods his agreement with Sandra. Chaykin says, 'Shivan is next' Herbert says, 'yeah i need some lunch!' Herbert throws his head back and cackles gleefully! Shivan says, 'Yay'

Chaykin pokes Shivan with Kryptonite. Shivan says, 'Ok, i missed the pk thing last night' Quagmire says to Galahad, 'lim (quagmire winning against shivan) as # times shivan and quagmire fight -> 0.' Shivan says, 'so' Quagmire says, 'good enough for me' Shivan says, 'this may have been brought up' Chaykin says, 'it didn't happen' Shivan says, 'oh' Cypri says, 'no questions your honor' Chaykin says, 'Huginn is rescheduling for next week' Cypri laughs. Vahn coughs loudly. Vahn says, 'You all SUCK! Ty Goodbye' Cypri says, 'phoenix has not won a fight with quagmire since the head stun shots, I mean fi I didn' I didn't see it' Shivan says, 'Ok well here is the thing- I think pk is too centric around stunning affects. They decide every fight i'm in, and in situations like fighting galahad where he can stun me and I cannot stun him there is NO way for me to win' Shivan says, 'I see this as a problem' Shivan says, 'Any discussion? :)' Cypri nods her agreement with Shivan. Quagmire says, 'yes, you're a weenie' Shivan says, 'from the immortals' Quagmire says, 'yes, you're a weenie' Cypri says to Shivan, 'how come you can't stun galahad?' Galahad says to Shivan, 'i thought you had variety.' Quagmire says to Galahad, 'you got a sink.' Shivan says to Cypri, '65 mind is too much.' Galahad washes his hands in his very own sink. Shivan says to Cypri, 'Stun misses, backfires, and doesn't wfw.' Cypri says, 'oh if he has a sink you should do something else' Galahad says to Shivan, 'you know, I could have lied to you about my stats.' Cypri says, 'like bind or' Sandra says, 'I have noticed an increase in the necessity of stunning attacks. But I don't know if that's just because of the increase in stuns from shooting' Quagmire says to Galahad, 'if you're not nice, i can recite them from memory.' Shivan says to Galahad, 'You could have i suppose.' Galahad nods his agreement with Shivan. Cypri nods her agreement with Sandra. Shivan says to Galahad, 'But I worked them out on paper, and if you have tumble there isn't much room to stretch them out :P' Galahad says, 'I could be constantly changing gear' Cypri says, 'the stuns in sniper combat is crazy. I have even had anti-stun herb bracelets and have them not help one bit' Galahad rolls his eyes heavenward. Galahad says, 'you don't understand how those work' Cypri throws her head back and cackles gleefully! Shivan says, 'you know i've faught you, i haven't even come close to killing you, because you can headbutt me and i can't do anything about it' Cypri says, 'no I don't' Sandra says, 'resist stun items don't 'resist' a stun. They decrease the duration' Cypri says, 'ahh' Galahad says, 'there we go' Cypri says, 'well that works, maybe I should wear tow' Cypri looks up into the sky and ponders. Galahad says, 'make an item that makes you invulnerable to EVERY skill' LadyAce says, 'ok folks, I need to jet on home.' Chaykin says, 'is there such a thing as protection from stun in the game?' Galahad says, 'so the fights just become standing and fighting' Cypri thanks LadyAce heartily. Chaykin waves to LadyAce. LadyAce says, 'going to kick the router' Galahad waves to LadyAce. Chaykin thanks LadyAce heartily. Sandra shakes her head in disagreement with Chaykin. Cypri says to LadyAce, 'it was nice having oyu with us :)' Cypri grins evilly at LadyAce... Wonder what she's thinking... Sandra says to Shivan, 'Did I answer your q?' LadyAce giggles. Shivan says, 'yes' Sandra smiles happily. Chaykin says, 'okay' Chaykin says, 'galahad next' Galahad says, 'really?'

Chaykin pokes Galahad with Kryptonite. LadyAce is sick! She wants slack! LadyAce waves happily. LadyAce gives a big hug to everyone in the room. Chaykin says, 'yes really :P' Sandra hugs LadyAce. Galahad says, 'why can't the cleaveland cavaliers beat the Knicks?' Galahad says, 'just kidding' Sandra giggles. Shivan says to Galahad, 'Quick ask about skilltrees.' Galahad says, 'have you guys given thought to creating an account system here?' Sandra says, 'often' Sandra giggles. Shivan says to Galahad, 'Yes they have!' Galahad says, 'do you even know what I mean?' Sandra nods solemnly. Chaykin says, 'yes we do' Herbert says, 'im sure i still have like 5 alts i dont remember lyin around' Herbert chuckles politely. Chaykin says, 'I've seen it on a number of muds' Shivan says, 'I actually talked to huginn about it the other day' Cypri says to Galahad, 'what do you mean?' Cypri says, 'an account system?' Galahad says, 'HAH' Galahad says, 'cypri doesn't know' Shivan raises his hand. Cypri says, 'I didn't see it all' Herbert says, 'so yeah im all for it, so id know all my own alts again hahaha' Cypri says, 'ai was oow' Cypri giggles at Herbert. Sandra says, 'we'd like to do one. No plans for it right now though' Shivan says to Herbert, 'I had to get 6 alts unpurged the other day :P' Galahad says, 'Basically you create an account via e-mail, and all of YOUR alts would be under your account' Herbert grins evilly at Shivan... Wonder what he's thinking... Cypri nods solemnly. Galahad says, 'like there's so much random alts that get created for humour and tossed' Sandra says to Shivan, 'Imagine being me and having to check alts every month.' Sandra has 58 now. Cypri says, 'I don't like it, though it would be cooler for keeping your alts your alts' Cypri whistles appreciatively. Krista shudders. Cypri nods her agreement with Sandra. Cypri says, 'wow' Shivan says to Sandra, 'Ouch, write a databse for them!' Galahad says to Sandra, 'can you remember those names?' Cypri comforts Sandra. Cypri laughs. Sandra says, 'no :P I have them written down' Galahad says, 'or is it like' Cypri says, 'that's a lot of names' Cypri says, 'for sure' Chaykin says, 'this one time' Cypri giggles. Chaykin says, 'I remembered a cool name I wanted to use for a char' Quagmire says, 'wee, toronto 2, texas 1' Galahad says, 'Sandra_Alt1 Sandra_Alt2 Sandra_Alt3 Sandra_Alt4 Sandra_Alt5 ...' Quagmire sticks his tongue out at Sandra. =P Chaykin says, 'so I tried to make it and then dammit, it came up as already in use' Cypri grins evilly. Sandra giggles. Chaykin says, 'then just on a lark I tried a password' Cypri says, 'I like the ay it is' Chaykin says, 'and it was mine :P' Rusalka laughs. Cypri says, 'on that topic' Sandra giggles at Chaykin. Rusalka says to Chaykin, 'It was so cool that...' Cypri says, 'I don't think I would like having my email to it' Cypri giggles. Chaykin says, 'I had already made the char like 2 years before' Chaykin sighs heavily and rolls his eyes, but you're not sure why. Galahad says to Chaykin, 'haha.' Shivan says, 'but having a tied in email opens up options for password recovery O_O' Cypri says, 'cool you guys' Chaykin says, 'okay basically the answer is' Galahad says to Cypri, 'it's not like they'd sell your e-mail to spammers.' Cypri nods her agreement with Shivan. Galahad says, 'or send you e-mails' Chaykin says, 'we've toyed with the idea and may do it in the future but we currently don't have plans for it' Cypri says, 'of course not' Rusalka says, 'with product testimonials' Cypri says, 'with the spammers' Rusalka chuckles politely. Cypri giggles. Shivan says, 'I had another question, but i've forgotten it' Cypri says, 'I like it as it is though' Shivan says, 'oh never mind i have it again' Herbert says, 'buy LegendMUD tea coseys NOW!' Cypri says, 'it's pretty easy to make a alt' Cypri says, 'I like it' Cypri says, 'no mud school' Chaykin says, 'okay there was nobody else in the queue so' Galahad says to Shivan, 'someone must have cast idiocy on you.' Cypri says, 'no lame crap' Shivan says, 'hurry and give me the talking stick before i forget again' Cypri says, 'ya know'

Chaykin points at Shivan. Cypri points at Shivan. Shivan says, 'Here's an idea: Level 50's don't purge! Many muds don't purge people who leveled fully, and I suspect the majority of cleanup that is needed is for people who started and won't be back. Why punish established players who forget/have to' Shivan says, 'leave etc' Sandra giggles. Sandra shakes her head. Shivan says, 'nothing like having to leave, forgetting to alt, coming back to find your name stolen' Sandra says, 'I can get a char to 50 in short order. That's not established. Established is being around and making a name for yourself.' Shivan says, 'forgetting to archive i mean' Shivan says, 'well for some of us it a serious investment in time :P' Krista nods her agreement with Sandra. Cypri nods her agreement with Sandra. Sandra says, 'you should write your char names down!' Shivan says, 'I do' Shivan says, 'It doesn't help me' Rusalka says, 'make a cheat sheet' Chaykin says, 'or keep seperate connect links in your mud client for each one, like I do' Sandra says, 'I keep like 4 out of archive at a time. Course, I still hae to make sure which ones they are every month' Cypri looks about accusingly. Sandra says, 'hey I have 59 tf files for mine!' Rusalka blinks. Shivan says, 'whats the point of the archive system really, its not like they take up less space' Shivan says, 'unless you are compressing the archived files or something :P' Sandra says, 'to save the characters. Else they'll get purged. Which does save space, coz we do compress those :)' Shivan says, 'you compress which' Sandra says, 'purged' Shivan says, 'so why not just not purge level 50s' Sandra says, 'that's a lot of chars' Shivan says, 'I love the fact that I can logon wotmud after 3 years and my level 30+ alts will still be there, with no worries' Chaykin says, 'what I think is cool is you can create a new char that previously belonged to someone else who got purged, and you get their mail' Chaykin ducks to the ground. Sandra giggles. Adamar says, 'really? hmm' Galahad says, 'wotmud?' Shivan says to Chaykin, 'You can also steal and archive their name.' Chaykin nods his agreement with Adamar. Rusalka says, 'that happened to me once' Rusalka giggles. Rusalka nods her agreement with Chaykin. Galahad says, 'I hate when people steal popular names' Galahad says, 'and then act like jerks' Adamar shrugs helplessly. Shivan says, 'see i think its a problem' Shivan shrugs helplessly. Rusalka says, 'i hate it when i let a char get purged by accident and lost the name' Rusalka chuckles politely. Quagmire comforts Rusalka. Adamar says, 'i had names stolen before, you get over it' Chaykin says, 'well if you have so many alts active that you are having trouble keeping track of which ones you've logged in within one whole month, maybe you should archive a few' Rusalka says to Chaykin, 'Sad thing is, i don't have that many.' Rusalka laughs. Chaykin comforts Rusalka. Rusalka says, 'but yah' Cypri says, 'okay all' Galahad says, 'I just hate losing clanned alts' Cypri says, 'gotta afk again' Shivan says, 'why put the burden on the player, if not purging level 50s wouldn't change machine requirements at all' Cypri says, 'giggle' Galahad says, 'archiving means you abandon the clan' Sandra says, 'because you should be responsible for your character' Quagmire says, 'do you want me to shoot them for you?' Quagmire ducks to the ground. Chaykin says, 'the question isn't why put the burden on players, it's why take the responsibility from them :P' Shivan says, 'well I can see we have a difference of opinion, well worth a shot :)' Sandra giggles. Sandra nods her agreement with Shivan. Chaykin says, 'okay anyone else have a question or can we call it a night?' Quagmire raises his hand. Chaykin says to Quagmire, 'Go.' Quagmire says, 'how are babies born?' Cypri smirks. Cypri jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Quagmire! Shivan points at a powerful Punic lance. Cypri says, 'thanks all' Herbert says, 'a mommy and a daddy who love one another VERY much...' Sandra says, 'you pay the stork and he drops one off for you' Cypri says, 'for the QnA' Cypri says, 'it was entertaining' Adamar says, 'that is a question for builders' Cypri says, 'I'll be back afk' Chaykin says, 'okay I think that about wraps this up, thanks for coming everyone :)'
