Re: What is a 'puke'?

OK, I am wrong. It's not in the book. Whiteskin, yes, whitepuke, no.

Re: What is a 'puke'?

I could be wrong, but I believe that the term 'whitepukes' is used in the LotR, with the same meaning. Perhaps when the Uruk Hai were running to Isengard.

Re: Recent changes, a bright future ahead

What some of you have been getting at is that fighting in light equipment (not talking casters here) is suicide. If the Fellowship had fought in Balin's tomb armoured as they were (plain eq mostly, no shields) against the orcs (mail, spears, more numerous) in a mume setting, they would have been sla...

Re: Recent changes, a bright future ahead

I agree that surviving should be hard if you are wounded and being actively chased. However, I'd actually like to see an improvement in the power of sneak/hide, as long as you haven't been fighting recently. By that I mean being able to sneak into Bree relatively safely as a darkie (for example). On...

Re: Recent changes, a bright future ahead

What sort of feedback are you (the management) most interested in? Constructive comments on the effects of current changes. Constructive ideas for near term changes. Constructive ideas for the next version of MUME. We already know where we're headed for the next version, but thanks for your concern!...

Re: After reading through a number of guides...

First off, I would say go elf or man instead of half elf. Statwise, the latter are for clerics, because of the +1 wis (and that would be the only reason for choosing one, since to me playing a half elf for rp reasons makes no sense in a Tolkien world). Choosing stats Str, dex, con: Opinions vary, bu...

Re: Testmume feedback on scout changes revision 2

I agree with Wobbler that there should be some sort of way to see if you've canceled hide. It was somewhat surprising on testmume to see what did and did not cancel. Smiling doesn't reveal you to a player in the room, but licking your mouth and smiling does. Running into a wall doesn't reveal (it di...
