Hallohid typhomoid

Post by Maulpaw » Tue Apr 29, 2008 7:23 am

I dreamt tonight that I was playing MUME and was in some very dangerous area where you were supposed to quest for seven legendary swords.
Suddenly I entered a room with a maelstrom and the only way to get out was to type "hallohid typhomoid".
This supposedly was a technical term for putting your head below the water, letting the hair slow you down as it gets wet. You were supposed to know it or figure it out before the slow death trap killed you.
I just found it so bizarre in its weird detail and I recited it all morning since I knew I had to write it here.

Hallohid is obviously a half/human half/Fallohid race...
Typhomoid is maybe a reference to something similair to a typhoon, but more likely a "Typhom" is an uninvented term referring to a MUME typo that becomes a statement different than intended.

We sinning MUMERs, full of disdain for the real world created by G-D, will end up in the worst hell of all. MUME hell. We'll all just have our consciousness dropped into a machine running MUME, and we'll never get to take a break.

Do we get to switch chars when we want to, or will we forever be playing the same char?

You probably have to start over again from level one every time you die.
