Re: Question - Gambit Triggers

I'd expect the IC Event to be the actual gambit, so it would be the present tense only.

Re: New Player Introduction

Hi Chris! Welcome! I'm not familiar with ULRPG, though that may have been TI's original owner's inspiration. From what I gather, they were highly inspired by many sci-fi and fantasy sources including the book series Dune and Black Sun Rising. As for TI's history... the first game was opened in 1998 ...

Re: GLing can be a thankless job. Are gambits making it doubly so?

GL support is calculated the same way as anyone else's support with a small bonus from guild members. I believe all players also get a small bonus from a person in their guild supporting them. Support's only role in a GL gambit is whether a GL is vulnerable to a gambit at all. A GL doesn't need supp...

Re: New Support Policy

There are a number of ways to handle a situation like that, either ICly or OOCly, as fits the player's personality, the situation, and comfort. At an absolute worst case, you can also approach staff, explain the situation, and get a waiver to allow both alts to interact. However, having two alts ext...

Re: Physicians oppose Infrastructure?

Hello! Just dropping in to make a few comments and answer some questions posted earlier from the staff point of view: Q: Does preventing new players from purchasing basics like tools for their trade and resources cause a problem? A: Players are not prevented, there's just a change in pattern of beha...

Re: Recent Changes?

Lockers are a very old system that was put into place before free phomes were around to allow all people to store equipment. They do not work the way real, physical lockers would; ie, there's an object that is a locker carried around in the inventory of a locker owner. Real lockers would persist in ...

Re: Keywords used with the READ command

This seems weird - Niamh, can you review and bug this if it is, indeed, strange? An under-the-hood rewrite shouldn't change above functionality.

Re: New Support Policy

Generally speaking, we expect social support or subversion to be more personal than "I support the ruler on high in which I've never even interacted with", and two alts are not allowed to be involved in one another's RP. Thus, two characters shouldn't be so close to the same character as to allow or...
