Re: MUME Ansible

No-communication theorem from Wiki (fwiw) "In these experiments, the no-communication theorem shows that failure of local realism does not lead to what could be referred to as "spooky communication at a distance" (in analogy with Einstein's labeling of quantum entanglement as 'spooky action at a di...

Re: MUME Ansible

I think what he was saying is that if you misunderstand quantum entanglement you will think of it as faster-than-light (its instantaneous). There really is no travel (velocity) though so relating it to speed doesn't make sense.

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

Time is a commodity (i.e. tradeable), and comes with a price/cost. When it comes to recovering from mob death the "opportunity cost" of that time becomes a huge factor and cannot be ignored (especially in the year 2008). Spending X hours recovering experience from a mob death is too "expensive" if i...

Re: MUME Ansible

Is quantum entanglement where a pair of particles always has the opposite charge, no matter how far apart they are?

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

First off, I am one of those sado-machoists who come back more often when I get wacked. Thankfully there aren't many of us. Second, you say you are rewarded for learning by not dieing. This is a nice thought, as living is that status quo. You left out the part where you die first to learn what not t...

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

"Players are not penalized for being new" No players are penalized for having to learn. I don't run this particular game, but I can tell you you will attract alot more people by turning the penalty around. I've been a one of those old-timer players who grumps when a game changes to make it not so da...

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

On Everquest, and some others I imagine, there is a 'resurrection' cleric spell that gains you back a large % of lost experience when cast on your corpse, depending on the level cast, I think its from 50-98%. Just a thought.

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

So you are happy that its just all old time players here and you should keep penalizing people for being new. Great, if you have played a while and don't like dealing with newbies. What you will get with this is what you already are starting to see - a handful of hardcore players and a declining pla...

Re: Question about mobdeath penalty (not complaint)

If you look at various other games, which MUME competes with for players, such as Guild Wars, Everquest, Ultima Online, etc. there is little to no penalty for dieing. It makes it hard to keep especially new people, who basically are penalized for learning the game. To be on an equal footing with the...

Too many skills, Not enough Pracs

I'm looking for some advice for my 15th lvl mage. I know earthquake, burning hands, and lightning bolt pretty well... but should I learn fireball or colour spray next. Eventually I'll have both but in the time being I have only a limited amount of Pracs. Maybe also I could just train off enchant (wh...

Re: Deep mines of the Blue Mountains

How quick do you have to be anyway? Do you get a good warning? I'll prolly wait some levels and see if I can enlist some others in an adventure. I'm going to guess you can earn the BM citizenship from questing down there
