Hello friends. My wine program for my Mac that lets me run ZMUD is on the fritz. Brief hiatus while I figure it out.

Re: Trade Bar Discussion

Curious how coded storage would work for these. Ideas: -Special trade-bar only "banks" -Increase bank balance maximums, allow for withdrawals/deposits/conversions in bar form. -No exchange fee for bank users with balance over X. -Bars withdrawn from banks in large cities are stamped with that city's...

Re: Funny moments!

A thin, light-skinned male human peers at you, then chuckles. 'You might want to put the sword away. Someone might ge tthe wrong idea.'.
You no longer feel heroic.

Re: Where are you guys?

Fun! My name is Ben, I'm 27 and live in Phoenix, Arizona. There was a large group that started playing under former Lathander's MUD club at a local middle school. They had a member that bled into Prescott, Arizona, and got me and like 6 other people playing. Theres only a couple of us that still pla...

How do YOU recruit new players?

Hey guys! I've been on FK for on and off for close to 14 years now. From my original group of IRL friends, only a couple of us still play. I DM a regular 5e DnD group, and knowing everyone, most of them would probably love FK. However, these are usually the retorts that I hear when trying to get the...

Philosophy of Power-Leveling

Scenario: You want to get better at a non-combat spell, Polymorph, as a wizard. You've just reached a high enough skill level that the spell lasts a long time. You decide to memorize several iterations of the spell, casting it repeatedly, only to revert and cast it again. IC Explanation: You're cons...

Re: Raising the cost of components for creating undead

I've actually thought this has been an issue ever since a certain necromancer found out what happens when you animate kir-lanen, probably well over a year before now. *googles what Kir-Lanen is* haha. I'm all for the balancing of unbalanced spells/skills/abilities. I mean, looking at the past, thin...

Re: Raising the cost of components for creating undead

I wanted to make sure I knew what I was talking about before responding, so I did my research. What I can't seem to understand is why illithids, or anything similar would need to be removed. Are they powerful animates? Sure. Think about the power level of some of the spells in FK. Think of what some...

Hey everyone. Disappeared there for a little while, had some personal traumas pull me into an IRL Abyss with Errtu. Note: He's actually more fun than one might think.

Explaining FK

I'm curious how the rest of the FK playgroup explains FK to friends, family members, significant others, etc. who don't know what Dungeons and Dragons is, what MUDs are, and whose most extensive knowledge of anything fantasy related comes from maybe watching one or two of the Lord of the Rings movie...

Absurdity in my Communications Course

In college, I did all of the interesting classes for my major right away, and now that I'm at the tail end of my education, I find myself in all of the 100 level courses I skipped. Because of this (and without trying to sound cocky), I also find myself a big fish in a small pond, mostly because I've...

Re: Better Roleplaying

My input is far less scholarly, but I've noticed that over my 12 or so years of FK, I've certainly developed a sense of style with how I talk on FK, my vocabulary choices, smotes, etc. If any of you have had the pleasure of roleplaying with Lathlain, Levine, or Lorelie (just for an example, excuse t...

Re: Cyric Needs Love: Who's Interested?

I have a Cyricist that I never log anymore, but he had some standing/repute back in the Lathlain days. I would be interested in logging him more to participate in some events, and faithing roleplay.

Areia, PM me if you need my help with anything.
