It was a dangerous day in Blackwell yesterday. An undead and orcish attack tore through the town, killing one and injuring several.

Avatar have mercy!

Militia Captain Craystor Rake has been arrested on charges of:


We understand that many may have been affected by this man but due to his position, not dared to step forward.

We are seeking witnesses for the trial against him. If you have anything to say that may add weight to the scales of justice, please come forward now. He cannot hurt you from behind bars.

The trial will be held in the coming weeks, and justice will be done.

We had 8 people on for a solid few hours last night, and had some great activity! I have a bunch of screenies which I'll be compiling into reports this evening for those who missed the excitement.

Not bad for the shard's first week back up. smile

Tell your friends, and let's keep pushing Project Brains to new heights!

As always, be sure to leave any ideas in the feature requests thread.

It's been over a year since Project Brains was last active, but we hope to pick up the story more or less where we left off. I thought it would be useful to have this thread for people to share a little bit of information about what they were doing in game during the end of the last period of activity, so we can hopefully get off to a running start!

For my part, I had Egbert trying hard and failing at kindling his illicit narcotics business, and Derek entrenched deep in the Rake vs. Finn and Jake controversy.

If you remember, please post yours!

#25 Announcements » New burglary rule » 2014-10-24 12:58:31

Replies: 0

The last time we had the server up and running, we had a big problem with burglary getting out of hand.

From now on, players with houses are encouraged to keep a yellow bag/chest (even hidden within other containers) that contain valuables they're happy with having stolen. Thieves are encouraged to only steal from these bags.

This is a difficult thing to enforce, but nobody likes logging in to find out everything they've worked for is gone, especially if IC they would have been at home while they were logged out, and thus have line of sight on the containers that got emptied.

I hope this is a fair compromise that will still give burglars something to do, while protecting players from having their containers dry-looted.

See the rules page for more information.
