The One About Your Items

292. Thu Apr 22 2021 18:15 (Teepee) :: The One About Your Items

As many of you know several player files got corrupted recently due to some
MUD issues. There were 65 player files in total. As a result, all of those files had
to have the corrupted objects deleted from their character. I am in the process of
restoring the corrupted files, but it will take a little time due to the volume of
files and items. Currently, about 25% have been restored. I am aiming to try and
have that up to 100% by the end of the month.
If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Update on the kit restorations:

After spending about 50 hours or so on it, it's done!
All kits that were deleted from this issue have been restored.
If you were one of the players that Lefty listed, and you fill like there is
something missing, or that you were missed let me know, and I'll check.

Easter Event

291. Wed Mar 24 2021 21:39 (Teepee) :: Easter Event

The Easter Bunny will be stopping by, and will be visiting us from March 31st
until April 3rd. The Easter Bunny will have a special place in town when it
arrives. While the Easter Bunny is here, there will be a Great Egg Hunt! Many
colorful dyed eggs will be hidden around the realm. Upon finding eggs, be sure
to turn them in to the Easter Bunny. Each egg turned in will net you a small
quest point reward. When the event is over, all remaining eggs will be wiped
clean, so be sure to turn them in as you go. I hope you all have a Happy
Easter!

Crafting

290. Thu Feb 11 2021 01:57 (Lefty) :: Crafting

All crafting resources will weigh the same now instead of some being light and some super heavy. It might not make as much sense for
roleplaying, but it should be more practical for game play purposes. Enjoy!

Warrior Updates!

289. Tue Feb 09 2021 07:30 (Lefty) :: Warrior Updates!

1) The reducts avoided by Armor Penetration now scale with elements to a maximum of 75% instead of being a straight 50%
2) Conditioning 1 and 2 are now pwater only, and have been buffed slightly
3) Instead of reflecting an attack, Riposte now grants extra APR to the warrior based on elements. This will provide
chances for things like weapon crackles and dragons breath to fire, and also combo with Armor Penetration to be
extra brutal!

Valentine's Day

288. Fri Feb 05 2021 04:01 (Teepee) :: Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day I'm going to run a special event quest on Saturday
the 13th at 3:00 p.m. Central Time (21:00 UTC/MudTime). The quest will
have some decent rewards, and should be pretty fun. If you have any questions
feel free to reach out.

Fixes

287. Tue Jan 26 2021 03:37 (Lefty) :: Fixes

1) Lulluby odds in PVP have been increased (though still lower than before the last change)
2) Max duration of still in PVP has been reduced to 5 ticks (PVE unchanged)

Updates!

286. Sat Jan 23 2021 05:28 (Lefty) :: Updates!

1) PVE kills are now recorded as: level 1-10, 11-23, 24-30, 31+ to help track HS odds better.
Note that the old counts are still included so the PVE board will be off until next reset,
but since the 31+ group was not changed, actual PVE rank is not affected.
2) Room effects such as Wall of Thorns no longer receive damage bonus from wisdom
3) HS odds have been increased for solo, group and crafting
4) Reduced odds of lullaby landing in PVP only (PVE unchanged)
5) Chamber of Past Memories has received an overhaul with new pelt items, new cipher mobs and all gear has
been updated within the zone. Additionally, the mobs have been enhanced to be in line with the new gear there.

Patrons and Items!

299. Sat Jan 09 2021 06:08 (Lefty) :: Patrons and Items!

1) New patrons! Oscanius has replaced Behring as the new Lord of Diligence. Teepee has also been added as a brand new type of
patron. Since he is totally Apathetic about who follows him and what his followers do in their spare time, he can have both
Chaos and Order followers! You choose your path at char creation which determines your align, but then both Chaos and Order
can talk over psay and fight together in HWZ to become champion of Apathy! Also, the forces of Nature are notoriously neutral
in the matters of order vs chaos. Therefore, Lefty can now also be followed by either align (replacing Sunzuu for Chaos)

2) New items! Spell potency was kind of thrown into the game replacing Age but some of the resulting equipment didn't make
sense and there were gaps in available stats. To help remedy this situation we have introduced many new items with potency
(and a few other cool items) into the game! Some mobs have been buffed to protect their new eq. Items have been added to
zones and mobs that aren't frequently done so make sure to look in unexpected places. We will be releasing a few hints in
coming days to help your search. Happy hunting!
