Re: What would you change?

If I ruled MUME for a day I would like to take it back to its Lord of the Rings origins. There is a too much powerful magic that allows players to dominate battles and move great distances across the game. I don't remember the books being THAT focused on spells. A greater focus on healing and other...

Re: Next zones for Building

Yes, Eriador was not safe. No, it did not have any orc encampments! If we wanted to make Eriador more dangerous, then we'd have to use other ways for doing that. Although, I'd say that the GH-BM area is pretty dangerous already for the non-experienced player. And I see no reason why all areas should...

Re: where are the gods?

Yeah, it's mostly from European noon to a few hours into the "European night-time", when Europeans are sleeping there's rarely anyone there. Because of my new location you might find me logging on at all sorts of odd hours, but generally I don't really semi-idle around like some people... However, i...

Re: New server linkspeed

I think that's normal, the two ways of pinging use different methods of reaching the result. For example I get 192ms with the "link" command and 63ms by pinging pub1.heig-vd.ch from command.

Re: New server linkspeed

Ok, so a standard american link to mume is 200-250ms , anything changed after the server move ? Some european players must be better off since they now are physically closer to the mume host. Thanks for reply. Afaik the average american link is now faster than it was to the old server, though not b...

Re: Legend rerolls after 6 months

While I agree completely with the proposal that rerolls and ageresets shouldn't take that long, then I don't think that current effects of the training system are that confusing. Yes, they're not what they were intended to be, but they are not confusing. Instead of having an effect on the base stats...

Re: Cannot log into the game now??

It probably shows up as that only because of some as-of-yet undiscovered bug and in reality I still rule! *nod self*

Re: Scout changes - ideas

I think Ugurz is overpowered and scouts should be nerfed All lvl80+ characters are overpowered compared to the regular char. Nothing new in that. And it's certainly not unique to scouts. A mage of Ugurz' level is just as scary. They've put weeks or months of playtime in a character, of course they ...

And it also (just) got fixed by Mint.
You sure about that? I told this to Mint like 30 minutes before I posted it here. At least then he wasn't even aware of this possibilitity. :)

Re: Cannot log into the game now??

Flin, I reported the issue with the Java applet to an Arata, hopefully it'll get fixed.

However, I would encourage you to try out a client for playing MUME. :)

There's lots of different clients available.. powtty, jmc, powwow... make your pick! :)

Re: Next zones for Building

Yes, you can't get into Isengard because it's not finished, thus not open. If you do find a way, then it's a bug. :)

There are also sapphire rings that can give bonus OB or bonus DB, aside those phials can be made as well.

Re: What targets should I be going for?

Wobbler, I understand what you're aiming at here, but the keyword in your posts is "following". I would not suggest a newbie of low level to wander around abr alone. Very likely you'll end up dying and losing your equipment (and we all know that this is an eq-mud...). Make that char a hero+ scout an...

Re: What targets should I be going for?

Especially Wobbler, but Chark as well in his "testing" are totally misunderstanding the situation here: There is a newbie asking for advice. If we look at things from that perspective, then: 1. Just ignore Wobbler's advice. It's a lot of nonsense. There's the time for learning and there's the time f...

Re: What targets should I be going for?

Uuugh! So much bad advice from experienced people, I'm confused. Telling a lvl9 to go for robbers is like asking them to mobdie. (A lvl9 can solo a robber only perhaps if he has full shining + some mighty artefact, otherwise not really..) So, definitely avoid robbers. Bandits, ruffians, thieves, eve...

Re: Any future ahead? I guess not.

Well, Wobbler, I can start that kind of reports with some data about the things I've been doing. For those who don't know: before a builder can build anything bigger, he needs to have successfully finished a testzone. A testzone is 1/4 of a real zone. That means 25 standard rooms, plus a few extra r...

My thoughts on what you wrote. First of all, let me emphasise that if I don't reply to something, then it means that I totally agree with that statement. :) Now... 3. Have a bank where players can get their cash, but when they die, the bank takes 50% of it. It's a money sink, and means when you die ...
