Re: Search, Reveal and Flush

But why do you expect to always see a superb sneaker when you are just looking around quickly (especially when many characters have no pracs in awareness)? Could he not simply wait until you are looking the other way? Then I should also be able to stand back-to-back with a groupmate or two to make ...

Re: Odd moments in RL caused by MUME

I'd say I'd rather encounter a water moccasin or rattlesnake on MUME than in real life. Man, I hate coming across rattlesnakes, and it's only happened to me once.

Re: Search, Reveal and Flush

if someone is sneaking or hidden and seeks the path into rivendell, which is also hidden does that reveal them, and if so, why?

Re: Odd moments in RL caused by MUME

at work, i've been listening to the LOTR dramatized BBC radio play (pretty good except for some of the singing) and somehow i'm always relating it to MUME in my head. for instance, when merry and pippin have been captured by orcs, i wondered to myself: how do those orcs have so many mvs? i also wond...

Re: Let's put together a newbie guide.

I would like to see a guide that doesn't focus on the commands, but the things that are really hard to figure out and help a whole lot. putting the default color scheme on is one... aliasing commands... why you should use a good client, base stats, and classing (esp. class purity since it doesn't ma...

Re: What would you change?

Well, I was thinking of spells other than healing ones, although I didn't know that was a NOIDEA. and as for a lockbox at an INN, i mean, it'd be pretty cool to have 10 gold to fall back on when you died, even if that was all you could put in there. but i guess NOIDEA is NOIDEA.

Re: What would you change?

I'd re-do the weapons and armor because it seems unbalanced and unrealistic. (See my thoughts on wooden shields and bows on the weapons and armor thread) I also think there isn't enough fun things to do with the gold you earn. Perhaps I'd make some existing and never used weapons more powerful, but ...

Re: Odd moments in RL caused by MUME

There is nothing like typing random MUME commands in instant messages to friends.

Abbreviations

How about a location abbreviation guide, or even a general abbreviation guide? To newbies, simple things like OER are unintelligible. It took me so long to realize that it meant Old East Road. Even items and other things can have confusing alternate names that make no sense to the new player. DT can...

Re: Roleplaying within MUME - Remember to roleplay?

Hm, I know this may be an unpopular opinion, but I am more interested in the people playing than their characters. MUMErs are an interesting bunch. Maybe I just wish people had more of a sense of humor and weren't so stuck up when you throw in some RL reference or anything. I do enjoy creating a cha...
