TBF I hate when that shit happens (ie mapper walking) but 5 minutes? Shoukd have been zapped and then IP Banned for an hour.
Auto bashers should have all of their credits, gold, and artefacts not purchased with OOC credits removed.
The auto bashers (mostly Penwize tbh) have destroyed the gold/credit economy to the point where restrictions were put on the rest of us because the admin don't want to ban people who spend lots of money. This is extremely frustrating for me as I've spent a lot of time bashing and would have earned thousands of credits if the bashing gold/cap & battlerage changes hadn't gone in.
Bit late for that.
Also wouldn't say Penwize contributed much to it. Credit prices were fine for years while he was playing. They've continued to decline for like the past decade, both with and without him playing. Trying to pin it on any one person (or even handful) is pretty disengenuous, he hasn't even played for like 75% of the past ~7 years, yet it's gotten worse and worse.
Lack of anything to really spend gold on, has contributed far more to the inflation, than anything else. This is a problem admin have been aware of for far longer, yet haven't done anything to address it, except place a cap on how much you can generate. Which... Did virtually nothing for the people who already had tens of millions of gold laying around.
Disappearing from Achaea for now. See you, space cowboy.
smileyface#8048 if you wanna chat.
@Atalkez I remember that! He said he wanted someone to summon Proficy for him and I shouted that you can't summon Proficy, he's not a genie in a lamp. XD
@Zadkiel Proficy did the exact same thing to me early on. I literally just walked past him on the way back from the foray board and he said he was going to hunt me down and kill me endlessly. I've also learned there's no point in issuing unless the person is griefing you / repeatedly killing you. Like Cooper said, it will just get dismissed.
Teaching someone to sail and watching their soul slowly wither as they navigate hard chops for the first time, and remembering what it was like sailing before the chops update. Good times.
Holy shit....seriously. I want to just say that I haven't had an opportunity to really develop RP and some stuff that I would typically do, and really it was a big anxiety to perform a ritual alongside some others like this, and to have the trust of the City to do this was amazing.
@Eryl - Rital is a gem, and I love him. Thank you for being you.
@Gribbit - I know longform emotes can be imposing, but you really are great, and you should know that.
@Mannimar @Mezghar @Farrah @Ita @Tahquil @Grif @Marra @Harenae @Ashlei @Armali ...
Oh lord I am going to forget people.
I just want to tell you all though, that being able to roleplay with you all and experience the City and learn history alongside you all, has truly made this such a rich experience.
To those who would say that we dont have a Roleplay scene, I say bollocks, just stick around for a little bit, there is awesome stuff to be had.
Sorry I missed it, but it was far too late for us Europeans on a school night. I agree that Hashan's RP has really stepped up a notch lately
Yeah @Sobriquet you were actually alive during the history that was being discussed. (You actually weren't, you're not that old! About a hundred fifty years off)
YOU MAY HAVE HAD ANSWERS!!!
Totally understand though, it was fun for us, im hoping someone did a transcript to share. There will be more going forward!
You resolve to undertake the Ashaxei's Brood resolution!
Had a long, fun conversation with Babel (through Setyond). He's been awesome so far, and it's been a treat hearing how savage he's been with @Dunn and @Mizik (dirty traitors). From everything I've seen/heard so far, all I have to say (and this isn't a complaint) is:
You open a giftbox bearing a silver ribbon and triumphantly pull a glittering ring of vitality from within!
Talked shop with @Doromath about very questionable things. Was a bit nervous so was fumbling my emotes like a buffoon, typos everywhere.
Held a career fair in Targossas. While Greys's ministry did not get a huge amount of interest, it seemed to help a few others!
Introduced people to the amazing teas and wines @Greys makes, and got lots of oohs and aahs.
@Greys I couldnt help but picture Michael Scott at the job fair.
@Caelan A bit! Unfortunately, all of @Greys really active aides became Lumarchs or Ministers. Recruiting replacements has been slow.
Today I started the rumor that it was @Mishgul 's birthday, but it was not his birthday. He was confused. Get pranked!
Had a really good RP moment today, despite a quickly thwarted theft attempt during that ultimately caused us to just move to a location with a guard stack to continue. A small inconvenience, but still had a good time. It's odd that you can't seem to go out and experience Achaea without stepping in all that "risk" (read "theft"). It's small wonder everyone just sits on guard stacks or ships to do all their socialising. Not a rant, just more of a musing.
Runie in Cyrene took my bounty and jumped me while hunting. I nipped back to Hashan, changed classes and went back for a fight. After killing him he refused to move from the city citing some excuse about me moving a room or two during the fight as "running away" when I was literally stood at the Cyrene Gates. So I went back hunting...
...to find he has ground runed nearly every room in all my hunting spots with Wunjo / Nairat / Para.
Ooof that's frustrating. Do runes sketched on the ground (other than raido) have a fade timer on them? Feels like they probably should if they don't after a rl day or 2. Ha, then that's a lot of wasted inks if you just find a few new places to hunt for the day. Course, unless they have an auction brush :/
No fade timer on these no.
Sounds like they were referring to you running back to Hashan to change class, if that's what nipped means. Hard to know the context, but they might have thought you were running to your city to reset, depending on the progress made. Also a post better suited for the Rants section, since that's essentially what the post is.
It's not a rant, but happened to me today.

You entirely deplete the charge of an armoured charge tank, a rolling wave of cleansing flame
reaching out from it to engulf all nearby.
The flames engulf Entaro, leaving him unharmed and somehow greater than before.
The flame engulfs you but does not burn; you feel your spirits soaring to ever greater heights as
your strength becomes more.
Your soul cries out in ecstasy as it reaches new heights of power. You have advanced to level 127.
You have reached the illustrious level of 8th Level of Penwizian Fortitude.
An uphill battle that got so dreary she started dying preventable deaths near the stretch mark because I was so bored. Glad it is over now.
Roleplayed with @Smashy , which escalated pretty quickly. Either way, it was fun.
Became Hierophant in Eleusis today. :)
