Re: Player Status

Been very sick the past few days. Not sure when any of my guys will be back for any length of time.

Re: Is it possible to flee from overworld NPCs?

From what I was told before, you don't get XP for mobs you shoot at a distance, so there's very little point in killing them outside of the room you're currently in. Right. It's not a matter of getting XP from a distance; it's a matter of getting in the first shot as well as a bit of "shooting" pra...

Far as I've played, its perfectly fine to used a ranged attack to get the first hit in then move into fight regardless.
That is what he does. Good to know. :)

Re: Is it possible to flee from overworld NPCs?

Is there a way to determine what room a mob won't come to so that you are NOT breaking the rules? I have a character that sometimes uses a crossbow, and I don't think he's ever done this. However, I'd hate to find out I was accidentally doing it. NOTE: This does not mean hill giants from the road or...

Re: Absurdity in my Communications Course

When I was in HS back in the late 70s to early 80s, I did my speech on the legalization of marijuana, including, of course, the monetary benefits to taxation of it. It took only 37 years to see that being put into place in the US.

Re: PvP Rules Clarification

I think more than a few lines of dialog or smote is imperative for PvP. Since everyone wants to enjoy the game and few want to die, it's only fair to everyone to be given sufficient wiggle room to extract. I agree also with the elf in orc training example; if you've been warned or challenged and don...

So January seems to be a very rough month for me. I ended up with major bleeding in my brain. I had an AVM and it's caused Aphasia. I lost the majority use of the Right side of my body and am fighting to gain a lot of memory back. I was originally diagnosed with migraines but boy was that wrong. It...

Re: Player Pictures

It doesn't need to be public. I share mine from facebook without them being public. Thanks, Mele. That's all I could think of as the problem. That's also very, very good to know. As an aside, here's an old pic of me: http://i375.photobucket.com/albums/oo194/TheCuteWoofer/Wolves/jedbigscreenTF3.jpg

If you're sharing something set to a specific audience, that's probably the reason. Try setting the image to share with public and then pasting the link here.

Re: Supplicating recall while mounted

Thank you! Is this, then, something that is not considered against the rules? I can see it happening again if he wanders into a maelstrom and can't dismount and then supplicate recall. Also, while handy, I can't see Mask being too happy about Mik showing up on horseback in one of his temples. Thanks...

Supplicating recall while mounted

Don't know if this bug has been reported or not - or maybe it's not exactly a bug - but Mik was riding Gred along the Black Road and was attacked by one of the wandering groups of mage, warrior, warrior. He tried to dismount and order Gred to flee, but it was chaos. After a few failed attempts and w...
