General Discussion / Re: new dynamic contacting via the way

Legit was standing in a room, and someone walked in from the outside, looked at me, and left immediately. No other interaction, just "I'm going to come into the room, copy your mdesc and equipment list, and deal with it later".

Why is this bad if they just look at you? They might be looking for someone specific. Or someone to hire. Or someone who is wearing a certain uniform, or a gemmed Vivaduan, or someone with a nice sword to steal, or someone to mudsex, or any number of things that only become apparent by looking at your equipment or your character. Then leave when they see that you're not what they were looking for.

I'm going to play devil's advocate for a bit here and ask: Is this a bad thing?

If staff are saying that this is the intended behavior and should be considered IC (I assume they are?) then it's not metagaming to contact someone wanted to find out what they're wearing. Likewise, it's not metagaming for criminals to have a barrier up and/or swap cloaks regularly to confuse any searching soldiers.

I think it's generally agreed that soldiers get the short end of the stick when it comes to finding criminals, so a small buff isn't bad.

..the magick stuff should definitely be changed though, it's not like secret gicks don't have enough problems. One hundred kudos for any gicks that put magic on random commoners so they look super suspicious through the Way though. ;)

EDIT: To be clear though, I'm throwing my hat in the ring of "change it back or change it so that the information is symmetrical, either tell the person being contacted who is contacting or don't tell either party".

Learned that last night some sad dude in the "Shadow Armageddon Discord" voice chat was shit talking me. If you check the shoutbox on "J Carter's Shadowboard" there is slander about me. Why are these mad and pathetic people concerned with me?

I've also seen that they've insulted other staffers and players there and I am sick of it. These people need to get a life and because I have a life I have better things to do than endure their spitballing. If anyone spitballs me here, bite me.

If I disappear there won't be any shadow cast or left to discuss.

Message me if the guild picker thing needs an update.

say, "So the criminal we are looking for is Bilbo the hairy footed man."

contact Bilbo hairy footed

You contact the figure in a grey elvish cloak.

say, "He is also wearing a grey elvish cloak."

Honestly, I do not see anything truly positive in these changes. Exchange one barely problem for a far more useful one. Myself, if I was way fishing for your sdesc I often would even way to taunt you about it. Besides, you had to at least be in the same room for code generated to work anyway.

Otherwise, I find knowing what you are currently wearing or even in some cases, doing...WAY more useful.

G Wagon, G Wagon, G wagon, G Wagon,
All the housewives pullin' up.

Heya. My grandfather was a travelling Romanov gypsy. And elf culture is its own thing. In real life the main pickpocket rackets in London and around Europe are Romani ones, anyone who has spent time in these countries knows what I mean. That sterotype is super valid even now, in many ways, but it still isn't the majority of Romanis who are a very warm and friendly people for the most part.

I strongly approve of the changes to the Tan Muark, but wasn't really offended by them, probably because I have never really played around the old Tan Muark due to them having deadly auto-arrow scripts near their camps much more dangerous than the ones on city walls.

Anyway, good changes with the docs because they weren't very imaginative and broke immersion to be honest, and elves are their own thing, everyone stop assuming for others if they are offended or not.

Nessalin has helped us make some adjustments to the "Directions" command, so that it's a little more inclusive for the Labyrinth - this covers south-side new players getting there from Allanak proper, and an addition for those calling the 'rinth their hometown. Hurrah!
Staff Announcements / We need a Sarge!

Looks like we are in need of a new Sergeant of the Steel Talons folks!

We are looking for a lean, mean Sergeanting machine. Someone who is nitty-gritty, perhaps a little corrupt and someone who is not afraid to get their hands dirty and drive plots! We may also accept a private or two for those of you that want to sink your teeth into the role!

(Yes, I shamelessly stole and necro'd this thread)

After rereading The Tide Lords books all in one go (ish), that last part of the last book now makes more sense then the first read through. The whole book series focuses really on Delcan Hawkes and his childhood friend, doesn't it?

I think it was like 12 years ago that I started a GDB thread whose topic was: maybe we should tone down the swearing in game?

Now I feel like my PC is usually the most foulmouthed in the room.

am I the asshole
