CGP & Karma
« on: April 20, 2013, 09:34:41 AM »
How do you know if you have these?

Do you simply take a guess and make a special application and wait for a decision?

Do staff consider specifical applications for things like extended subguilds, bumps or races with no CGP or Karma?

You can request your account notes to see if you have Karma.  But you only can do it every six months.

As I understand it, at this time, everyone has up to 3 CGP points to use when putting in a special application. They're not used for anything else right now. It is possible to put in a special app with features that are within that 3-point range even if you have no karma.

Barsook is correct about checking karma, but a faster way to determine how much karma you have is to log into the MUD and enter O for "Show Race/Guild Options". The options available will correspond to a karma level in the Karma Options helpfile. So, if you have half-giant available, but not fire elementalist, you know you have 3 karma.

You can request account notes -every- six months? I thought your PC had to die first? :/

Armageddon is OPEN.
Choose thy fate:

Notice the option (o) Show Race/Guild Options, this is based on your karma.  If you compare those to the karma options helpfile you can figure out how much karma you have.  IIRC the number of CGP one has is the same as the number of karma that one has.

Yeah...I forgot the "O" option.  Thanks for those who said that.  ;)

Also....I think they just edit out stuff that would be sensitive? I've had a report with feedback about a current character in, but it wasn't information that could effect anything IG (except maybe nudge me toward being a better player). This was a long time ago though so things may have changed.

Your cap on an extended subguild application, or anything that requires GCP is your karma +3. So if you want a halfgiant + a 3 CGP Subguild, you would need only the karma for the halfgiant. However, you could not pick a 4 GCP extended subguild because you would have used up 6 karma. Alternatively, if you have 0 karma, you can request any 3 CGP subguild (or 3 CGP worth of bumps) but must select a 0 karma race.

I hadn't been playing for a looong time. My current job consists of coding a month then idly wandering till the next project so I have time but I'm currently a little... lost.

Right now seems like I have 3 karma. Does that mean I can select up to 6 CGP?

Thanks in advance for the answers.
