    We had the same problem in the Warlocks with the "combat clan" ending up being used as a substitute for pretty much everything and anything.

    The Coliseum needs to be better enforced so that conversations that should happen on CT do happen on CT and less chatter of the general variety happens. People come in with the expectation that it's a combat clan but are instead treated to an array of wildly varying ooc nonsense. 

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    I'm just as guilty as everyone else at this point. But would greatly support the change.

    Oh, I was totally just as guilty of this when I was Hashanite, that's what made me think of it.

    Yeah, its hard to keep a clan focused like that, so when I made the Coliseum clan I knew that was going to be a part of it. Dealt with it a lot in our scripting clan in the Black Lotus too. But Hashan really needed that open line of communication, and I felt like it was suffering (in a combat sense) without it. Hopefully its enhanced the Hashani experience more than its detracted from it.

    I honestly think you would be better off just talking about combat on CT. Keeps the channel active, encourage everybody to get in on conversations, decrease the amount of OOC chatter.

    That would result in a lot of people just doing CTOFF because combat talk both tends to get long-winded and often veer into scripting issues and the like. I for one honestly prefer that cities have combat clans. I do find it annoying that people redirect the slightest question down there instead of answering, but for the most part I find it a positive addition. 

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    Yeah, I imagine if aural earrings came out in 2005, and were removed in 2015, that deafness blocked shouts/yells for that entire period of time.
    They did. I transed, what was it, Vision, so I could know who shouted, and then didn't hear shouts for years when deffed up, and never thought about it.

    But what's this about the aural earrings being gone?

    @Prythe they were removed back in mid-2015, and shouts were changed to be hearable while deaf.
    Huh. Neat.

    @Frederich if you don't wanna teach or do sermons or write or do rituals or fight or spy, not sure why you came to targ in the first place ;). Honestly though you seem to be fitting in
    I came for da RP.  Also I didn't say I didn't want to teach.  (Albeit, that isn't exactly a proper house in and of itself.).

    Nor did I say I didn't wanna fight.

    I'm down for punchin Ashtani in the face.  Which you don't get in Cyrene.  Hell, I enjoyed nukin Hashan some.  Spying aint possible w/ Fred because he has a friggin huge mouth.  Rituals are neat, but not my best interest.  Also, talking to people/preaching I get super antsy and choke up.  do not like.

    (I enjoy the RP a TON though.  It's fucking filled to the brim with RP in Targossas.  Fighting?  RP.  Reading a book?  RP.  It's got Cyrene beat on that 5x, at least.)

    Is your "I don't fit into the Luminai" after actually looking at their reqs and stuff? You seem perfect for it, to me, given what you've expressed that you like doing. It's the exploration/data collection/paperwork House.

    Nah.  It was more how it was represented, I guess?  It sounded from the City tutorial to be super hush hush "hey guy.  go get x from y.  DONT FUCKIN LOOK AT X WHATEVER YOU DO!  Okay bro.  Good job.  Still don't trust you, but don't speak a word of this to anyone.  Y'hear me?"

    If it's different than how it is represented within the city tasks, then I'd give it a whirl sometime.  Sorta reminds me of The Secret World's Illuminati with their janky secret shit.  But tbh if they're just desk clerks who occasionally do some espionage stuff (and it isnt a requirement), then I might be down.

    The future is 3d. Someone write a script to turn achaea into a 3d world. We can all wear 3d goggles and articulate verbal commands to our characters. or holographic keyboard.

    Can you imagine trying to RP/do the stuff we do IG, in a 3d environment with verbal communication instead of text chat?

    So, just to ruin Achaea even more..

    I'll be doing part of that this weekend at the Global Game Jam.  Going to see if I can make a 3D Achaean Sailing Visualiser...

    Probably not going to have any verbal communication though.

    That is... A terrifying thing. I can only imagine what this population would do with that sort of tech.
