Title: RATHUSTRA NEEDS YOUR POOP
Post by: Rathustra on October 02, 2013, 03:53:53 PM
Hello.

I am Rathustra and I need you to make poop.

Yes, that's correct - I, Rathustra require assistance in creating dung.

Dried dung that is!

I need dried versions of the following:

a fist-sized ball of dung
a hand-sized ball of dung
a ball of kank dung
a small, round pellet-sized dropping
a fist-sized ball of dung
a pile of sloppy fecal matter (this one should be interesting)
a long coil of brown feces
a tubular, puce-hued hunk of dung
a grainy coil of feces
a head-sized hunk of feces

If you want more details, such as the description of any of these turds, please either take a look in game (there's plenty just writing around). Or e-mail independents@armageddon.org and CC mud@armageddon.org.

Do the same with your completed dehydrated dumps! (e-mail indies and cc the mud account).

Ta.

EDIT: These are poops that have been dried by people. People who dry poops. These aren't poops that have baked where they've been dropped.

Nice. Weather effects!

a fist-sized ball of dung - a fist-sized cracked, dry ball of dung
a hand-sized ball of dung - a hand-sized cracked, dry ball of dung
a ball of kank dung - a ball of cracked, dry dung (dry kank dung isn't recognizable anymore -- also aren't all kanks dead??!!)
a small, round pellet-sized dropping - a small round dried out pellet of black matter
a fist-sized ball of dung - a fist-sized cracked, dry ball of dung
a pile of sloppy fecal matter - a pile of cracked, and dry brown and black matter
a long coil of brown feces - a dried long coil of brown matter
a tubular, puce-hued hunk of dung - a tubuar, black, cracked and dry piece of dung
a grainy coil of feces - a fetid, cracked pile of feces (stops being recognized as a coil?)
a head-sized hunk of feces a head-sized cracked, dry ball of dung

Just out of curiosity, is this man made drying, or weatherborn drying we're talking about here? I feel like if it was intended to be pressed for fires and whatnot it would look different than if it dried in the desert.

Hey that's an amazing point. I'll edit the OP to mention that but yes - this is man-made drying!

Well, all our wet poop is throwable so I don't see why the dry stuff won't be!

If it's man-made drying you could really get away with making just one dried poop object and a bunch of different crafts to make the same thing.

I can't believe I just posted that.

Is there a reason for people drying poop?  Or this is IC info?
Title: Re: RATHUSTRA NEEDS YOUR POOP
Post by: Qzzrbl on October 02, 2013, 06:35:04 PM
Dung has traditionally been dried for use as fuel in fires.

I'd imagine that'll be one if its uses.

Dung has also traditionally been used in spitting competitions (http://www.odditycentral.com/videos/dung-spitting-competition-will-leave-a-bad-taste-in-your-mouth.html). That might make a nifty sporting event in the Blackwing Outpost or Luir's Brothel.

right materials."

Thanks.

This may be a possibility, but first I need more poop!

The unstruck poops are still to be done:

a fist-sized ball of dung
a hand-sized ball of dung
a ball of kank dung
a small, round pellet-sized dropping
a fist-sized ball of dung
a pile of sloppy fecal matter (this one should be interesting)
a long coil of brown feces
a tubular, puce-hued hunk of dung
a grainy coil of feces
a head-sized hunk of feces

Ok, this is bad. You know you're addicted to Arm when you see both left and immediately get mdescs from those sdescs. Arghhhh!

the grainy coil o' poop:
Code: [Select]
Pitch-black in hue, this grainy coil of excrement has small pieces of
bone, feathers, and what looks like clumps of hair dispersed throughout it.
Coiled like a worm, the feces is somewhat mushy, but will hold together well
enough to be thrown.

the head sized poop:
Code: [Select]
This hunk of dung is roughly the size of a human's head, and made up of
various shapes and consistencies of feces all pressed together into one
compact chunk.  Here and there undigested bits of material such as little
pieces of bone or dried up pieces of grass can be seen.  
A heavy stench clings to this item.
The head sized one could be crafted into several smaller parts.

Look, we all make mistakes  - sometimes they involve making everyone move east, dragging their kill behind them and sometimes we misjudge the ability for Armageddon to accommodate such a huge variety of poops. I was hoping for some slick, high-tech poop code to manage the variety of poop, but unfortunately I'm going to have to get my hands dirty and make some cuts. Poop cuts.

That means that I'll have to make all the poops be crafted into a single dried poop, to accommodate further poop-processing (poopcessing) by players.

I'm sorry for wasting everyone's time! I was just enthusiastic about poop. :(

Think what he means is that the poop swill be crafted from one large piece, to smaller pieces, to the smallest piece.
