So with the return of the server I have unfortunately seen that some of our players have not returned.

Could all residents of Althalus's Inn please advise of the room (and if a shared room also lock box) that they have so that I can "Spring Clean" any rooms where the tenant has "Skipped out on the bill"

I'll be actioning this spring cleaning on the 30th of November giving people a little over 3 weeks to respond with either a screen shot of them in their room and either mark their box on the screen shot or a description such as "third room up from the bottom on the west wall, bottom box of the northern most pile" or combination of the two.

Any unclaimed rooms by this point will then be cleared and a "Public Auction" held to "cover the unpaid bill's" I will be announcing the Event for this auction once I know how much will actually be auctioned. If all rooms are claimed then I will assemble a random collection of items to Auction off still so the event will happen regardless.

I will be including a few "Special" items from my own stock including a mixture of exceptional quality armour pieces and weapons in this auction either way so with exceptional no longer creatable on the shard don't miss your chance to get your hands on these rare items!

All moneys generated from the Auction (less the bill to the Inn IC) will then be donated to the watch for the protection of the town.

*You see a fancy notice board on the wall of the Inn with several sheets of parchment neatly arranged on it*


#3 Re: In Character Board » Price Guidelines (Blackwell Merchant's Associaton) » 2014-11-02 20:07:06

(OOC)Question, how does the removal of exceptional and addition of the arms lore gain change this pricing structure and does this apply to only weapons or is this working for armour too?(/OOC)

would certainly give more reason to take bodyguards with you on a mining expedition, it was kind of inspired by the portable forges they use for re-shoeing horses these days and noticing the forge by the cave north of brit from the ea servers wasn't there so I tried to think of an alternative

#5 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2014-10-28 15:13:19

I've had a thought about forges, specifically portable ones, would it be possible to make a portable forge, maybe using the brazier graphic that weighs something silly like 150 so its only really usable for long mining expeditions (may make some good roll play, a three day mining camp smile )  not something folks would leave in their bag all the time as its far to heavy to lug around but can load up supplies and a forge in a packhorse  and go for a trip, that way can make proper mining expeditions to the far mountains and such more viable for events etc or even just hiring someone  as a bodyguard for the trip and going for a re-stock of resources.

I'm thinking something that uses fuel, say 1 bag of charcoal keeps it burning for about the same time as a camp fire to use for smelting then you would need to re-load it with more charcoal

You could make a bag of charcoal requiring say 10 wood used on a camp fire to char it and weighing say 15

So you set out with a load of bags of charcoal, your portable forge and your pile of pick axes, that's basically your pack horse full when you set off then as you use charcoal and picks whilst your out the weight gets used and you come back with leftovers, your forge and your Iron.

Also first aid kits got me thinking, veterinary supplies that allow you to use your healing skill and anat instead of animal lore and vet to take care of pets such as pack horses, similar sort of cost to make single shot as the first aid kits but do a bandages worth of healing to a pet so still expensive enough that a proper vet char can make a good roll but useful to keep things ticking over until one gets made maybe?

Lets see, Jake was busy tying up loose ends of the above the whole mess and of clearing his name, Althy was running his business and looking for ways to expand and  trying to buy the land opposite the Inn for a workshop and sales front end to his business as well as employ staff to work in the Inn and shop once he had it running and supply the goods he can't himself .... Althlaus Mart anyone? tongue

As for Hew ....  well the undead have such simple desires, Burn, Destroy, Kill ....... did someone mention retrieving silver weapons from the mortals? ......  Burn, Destroy, Kill big_smile

Ok so I've been thinking of trying to set a weekly event that we can all get our teeth into so I would really appreciate if you could post say your day/times of availability to commit a few hours to an event and lets see when is best for us all to get as many involved as we can and make these weekly get together great big_smile

Obviously these are on average I understand week to week different commitments etc will leave different days free for some people

Also if anyone likes the idea enough to want to hold events so im not raking my brains and bugging gm's for something new each week that would be great and if we get enough maybe we can have several weekly event times and even more activity!

So I'll start, British time for me so

mon - 5pm onwards
tue - 5pm onwards
wed - 5pm onwards
thur -5pm onwards
fri - 5pm onwards
sat - 5pm onwards
sun - 5pm onwards

As per our recent discussion I have begun some investigating around town and believe I have found something of which you should be aware.

I was out in the woods hunting when I happened upon a figure in the woods, I believe I encountered her earlier that day and she introduced herself as "Elisa" in town, she looks to be in her teens and wears a brown robe,

What I witnessed next astounded me:


When I confronted the girl she said something that sounded like "rel por" and vanished,

I will attempt to apprehend this girl should I encounter her again for you though I feel this may be something you wish to handle yourself.

I hope this confirms your trust in me and look forward to hearing from you on the position we discussed previously so that I may further my efforts to help you.

Thank ye kindly I shall seek her out


#15 Re: Announcements » Latest Changes & Special Moves! » 2013-08-28 00:12:11

I will admit that the lack of stamina regen on undead has cost me many times on Hew and whist a total refresh substitute such as a necro spell would be nice I'd rather have spirit speak regen the same as say eating a steak as well as heal to be able to contine chasing folks down if it's an either or situation but I think with a long enough cool down on the total refresh spell the two together would be the equivilent to someone with a pile of food and one or two refresh pots bought from an alchemist which is reasonable rather than the keg of total refresh analogy used by Rotip

#16 Re: Out Of Character Board » Bug Reports » 2013-08-26 14:32:21

double click the axe then target logs to chop into boards smile

#17 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-24 16:20:50

the only problem with that is you need mana to heal so if you have a spell for it your taking from your healing pool where as living can just drop a total refresh pot and have a bandage going at the same time as well as heal and cure pots kinda at a major advantage over the undead

#18 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-24 12:42:41

I think focus might be the fairest with everyone needing more stamina regen to use the special moves but undead need something to counterbalance the living stamina regen methods

#19 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-24 12:32:33

on a different note undead and stamina, now that special moves are in the shard undead need some way of regening stamina to be able to use them, currently the ways of food or potions can not be used as you get the msg about not having a working digestive system. I've not really worried about it too much up until now though it has caused my undead several deaths due to not being able to run.

im not sure which would be best reintroduction of focus or make ss regen some stamina as well as health or a refresh style necro spell would be my suggestions.

#20 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-23 11:59:21

I agree with Rotip and Craystor on this one, it makes it more worth the risk if there is a more substantial reward though which may encourage people to participate more than removing the fear of death I think.

You can always just say you yield or some such so you don't get knocked if your worried about getting too close.

#21 Re: Out Of Character Board » Bug Reports » 2013-08-21 21:59:48

not a bug coloured metal weapons are not available on the shard

#23 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-11 17:47:09

I didn't actually choose to make Jake a criminal it just kinda slipped that way after craystor set me up first time lol

Aside from the whole thief thing which i only brought up as an example and as i say am dealing with IC my main point which seems to have got lost is the need for more variety now we are starting to fill up our fishbowl, we still have new people joining so need easy areas for those and none combat crafter chars and the harder spawn for more trained chars and even larger for groups with some area to explore, we have all been around the current area a fair bit now so opening up a passage to despise for example might be a good way to expand the area

#24 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-11 02:29:38

ok a few quick clarifications, 1) am am pursuing in game options to recover my gold, difficult when the players not online but no ones fault thats just life so its taking time, 2) the comment on wanting both sides is low gold verses needing new armour all the time, 3) althy bearly ever makes gold 90% of his trades are for resources 4) i have a lot of toil making gold cos im on a lot what else do i do at 4 am when no one is around? and as stated i use it to pay wages etc that im giving away for for effectively just the incentive to play, you dont do anything you get your wage every week long as you come see me to get it, i price things stupid cheap and still offer a percentage to staff to sell them so loose more there to increase incentive to actually do the job and have offered to buy a range of things from the traveling merchant just for novelty value to offer to customers that i make a loss on so that people can afford to buy them.  I am aware large amounts of gold are not desired in the shard but i put a lot of time in so it is the result, i am happy to use this to improve the shard for everyone but loosing a few hundred is one thing loosing 4k all my regs and gems is taking it a little far but even that im rp'ing IC im not saying "give me my stuff back or im leaving wah wah wah" im just saying from my observations what is frustrating to me can be devestating for someone who can less recoup their losses and i think it needs looking at so we dont loose players through things that can be avoided.

#25 Re: Out Of Character Board » Feature Requests » 2013-08-11 00:47:47

as someone with a fair amount of gold stored up and then stolen by the milita how do i complain to the milita? that isnt an option for my char and i spent a lot of in game hours collecting that gold from chest spawns i doubt even a quarter of the amount has gone missing from folks that have been robbed by the verius lp chars as was taken from me as "evidence" so there is not always a recourse to go to for that and due to the low levels of gold in the game most folk cant afford to buy armour all the time so your kind of playing it from both sides there, do you want folk to be able to buy armour and keep the economy going or do you want them to have a low gold society?

i think i have reasonable prices on althy especially since i do most business as trade for resources and make very little gold on top of which i employ other players to try to promote rp by giving them reasons to be in a situation where groups should gather i do this at a loss because i want this to be a good shard and feel i can help in this way i also have hopes for a shop where i can employ more staff and take on some apprentices to promote rp that way and all of this comes out of gold i have saved up by long hours of toil and can be gone in five seconds from a thief. im not asking for nothing to be stealable not even for enough space to store all my resources not even all my gold im saying space to store some of my gold and a few basics to restart if all else is lost is a sensible thing
