General Discussion / Re: Thoughts about Dwarven Focus
« Last post by Cind on January 20, 2018, 04:51:05 AM »
The way I see it, when you make the focus to be the best swordsman/fighter in the Known, you are immediately competing against 20-50% of the dwarven pc population, and their foci are not stamped on their foreheads so you don't know which ones they are. A few non-dwarves are doing it too. To me, there is no greater challenge.

Player Collaboration / Guide to Atlantis MUD client
« Last post by CodeMaster on January 19, 2018, 10:30:27 PM »
The future of the Atlantis client is uncertain and the official documentation is incomplete.  At the time of this writing, the forums that served as a kind of ad hoc documentation for Atlantis are gone.  You can still access them on, but these archives aren’t searchable, which makes it really hard to search for specific help on the Atlantis client.

Nevertheless, Atlantis is still a great client for macOS.  So if you use (or have thought about using) Atlantis, this thread might be for you.  This is the incomplete ArmageddonMUD Atlantis tutorial where we post whatever we can dig up.  We'll add more as we go, and feel free to add to this thread if you find out something.

How to stack directions in Atlantis

Try inputting the following into the game:
Code: [Select]
/sc 1n3eThat will take you 1 room north and 3 rooms east.
How to write an Atlantis alias

  • In Atlantis, go to World up there along the top bar and click that.
  • Select "edit current world settings" from the dropdown menu.
  • It will bring up the Address Book window, from which you select the "Aliases" tab, toward the upper right.
  • Press the New Event button.
  • An empty but lightly highlighted line appears.
  • In the column that says alias, write the keyword you want to use (in our case we’ll write ‘jump’)
  • Beneath that large white window area, in the lower right, click "Add Action".
  • From the dropdown menu, select Connection: Send Text.
  • In that send text window write: em jumps up and down!
  • Now back by your alias, click the little box to the left, adding a checkmark.
  • THEN - when you want to activate it in the game, and this here is the special sauce you have to use /.  So in our case we would type /jump

How to write an Atlantis alias that targets people

Recently a couple of us ran into a problem: we wanted to write aliases that you could supply a parameter to.  A simple example of this would be a ‘bow <noble>’ command that would craft you an emote about bowing to the specified noble.

It’s all the same business, essentially.  But in the command send text window we type:

Code: [Select]
em bows to %{}
When you put it into use, you use the normal emote code. So you'd target that with (if your alias to it were bow):
Code: [Select]
/bow ~templar
If you want to save yourself typing ~, you can instead set the sent text to:
Code: [Select]
em bows to ~%{}

Yay, Batman arrived!

.....aaaaand lost my fortress.

Rephaite Warriors with Quickness make me cry myself to sleep.

I wish they had quickness but they just have the lesser air bless (swiftness?) which is just + battle movement.

I think bats taking imprisoned pretender was a mistake! Batman stronk.
I'll revise my statement. Rephaite Warriors with Swiftness make me cry myself to sleep.

Rephaite Warriors with Quickness are the stuff of nightmares.

Definitely agree with that last bit there  :'(
