Influence Scales and Adjectives

Some years ago, when we changed the support/IP system from a rolling one to a 2-week cadence with no carryover, we never went back and updated the influence scales/adjectives to make it easier to talk about influence ICly. This has been a chronic difficulty for me while playing a noble and especiall...

Mail recipient "does not exist."

Currently, when you try to send mail or packages to an invalid recipient, the game returns: So-and-so does not exist. The problem is that the inability to send mail to someone can have IC repercussions, such as when an intended recipient dies, silently liquidates, undergoes rebirth, etc. In those ca...

Re: Displeasure at Deletion of Old Chars

I personally lost two alts to this pwipe, and not gonna lie, that really aggravated the heck out of me. With my limited play time, I've been focused pretty solely on playing the Seneschal and don't have a lot of time for alts right now. But it was still a slap in the face to find out that I'd lost h...

Re: Displeasure at Deletion of Old Chars

I didn't want to be the one to start the bitchfest about this myself, but I was rather perturbed that -- as a longtime and active current player -- I wasn't given the courtesy of a one or two week warning prior to this pfile wipe, which was apparently announced over a busy holiday weekend. Very unco...

Re: Prestige Uses

Please write a typo board post if that information is not already in the help file. I was actually talking about a command that tells the player more information about their own prestige at any given time. Checking the helpfile for expected results against actual prestige level has been nothing sho...

Re: Feedback on Noble Projects

Not keen to add numbers to display progress. *ponder* It wasn't because we wanted people to overpay, however, it was more that these things wouldn't really be numbers on the top of the system, but rather 'degrees of sway' based on imprecise feelings or the imprecise outputs for a given action. I th...

I don't believe extra IP does anything, nope.
Incorrect, last I heard. Extra IP was allowed to "overflow the cup" so to speak to still benefit the project -- just doesn't contribute AFAIK anything extra to prestige.

Re: [Poll] Rumors

I wonder if some sort of middle ground were to exist, if it'd be cool - like, the system works like it used to, but a person could rewrite a comment on a rumor for a reasonable 'fee' related to their social power or influence over the rumor system. For example, perhaps bards could rewrite one rumor...

Re: [Poll] Rumors

I have already stated my "dislikes" in OOC chat, but one thing I DO appreciate about the new system is that it tries to capture the "living, evolving" aspect of rumors. But I REALLY HATE reading 2-3 of essentially the same rumor... even if those takes are different. There's also really no motivation...
