Re: Sniffing Potions

In theory in that case though, if you are someone who has a high enough level in Herbalism to sniff and know what something else, you should be able to peek at the recipes to compare what something looks like, right? (Though that doesn't help if it's retooled something weird from the base object.) P...

Re: Seneschal Directly Ousting GLs — Why This Can Be Good

It's appropriate for players to be genuinely fearful of angering the Seneschal, and the propsed checks and balances basically come down to diluting this themely intent. Characters should be afraid of angering the Seneschal character, but a player should not be fearful of upsetting the player of the...

Finding horsehair for paintbrushes et al at various stables would be fun. :D

Re: City Lore Updates Feedback

I'm fairly certain Help player files disappear upon death, so in theory if a person is just inactive it should remain I'd always thought so as well, but looking recently at/for some folks shows some that are still going strong from like PKs that happened years ago, so ... this makes me wonder if th...

Re: City Lore Updates Feedback

As for lores, when I first came in, I read a lot of lores referring to past characters long forgotten, and found them barely interesting, if not confusing when referred to the actual state of the game. I'd be in favour that lores related to a character get related to an helpfile displaying some his...

Re: Finding RP Helpfile

Sharing rumors and such is one of the jobs of the Troubadours Guild. I'd be slightly worried that if everyone was encouraged to give rumors away, that cuts out one of their jobs/RP ins.

Instead maybe the finding RP suggestion should recommend that people seek out a Bard if they like gossip.

Re: Replacing Aides with Volunteers?

That said, we provide RPxp bonuses for RPing with cyans, and it seems this works, but a lot of cyans report that their RP drops off after they achieve the normal status. I wonder if after that point people assume people "get it" and are situated enough to understand things to naturally find RP on t...

Re: City Lore Updates Feedback

The only trouble about linking things from rumors to lore is that rumors specifically don't need to be true, and arguably (or at least I personally hope) that lore would be expected to be.

Re: Replacing Aides with Volunteers?

I don't like volunteers turning their flags off; we had that for Aides and it *seemed* to contribute to their doing nothing but having an Aide flag for prestige but doing minimal cyan-player help for the benefit. If there is a toggle, perhaps there should be an expectation of Aides of a minimum of ...

Re: Seneschal Directly Ousting GLs — Why This Can Be Good

I'm against people being able to blame NPCs or vNPCs for their own personal actions. I think that allows people to get the benefits for such actions while dodging the potential consequences in a way that seems against the core "non-consensual" concept. The balancing factor of a Seneschal booting out...
