  • It's not all cuddles for the citizens of Celidon

    Rei gives the corpse of a small human baby to you.
    
    Rei gives the corpse of a small human baby to you.
    
    You give a horrified gasp.
    
    Clutching her blanket, the bloodied corpse of a small baby is lying here.
    It weighs about 21 pounds. <-- lol
    You see nothing in it.
    
    Rei shuffles her feet uneasily.
    
    You say, "Why."
    
    Rei Lorianis, the Equinox says, "I wasn't my fault."
    
    Above a canopy of trees.
    A spectacular view awaits one here, above the canopy of the oak trees. Beyond the immediate enclosed
    area there is no safeguard against falling to the ground far, far below. A vine rope closes off a 
    square portion, another is positioned around the hole leading to the entryway below. Two chairs have 
    been placed about the hole, one has been positioned to look out over the canopy and towards Stavenn; 
    in the other, one can see the river, leading to the mountains beyond. Looking out over the canopy, 
    Igbert marks down something on a map in his left hand. Its lips pulled back in a snarl, a spectral 
    barghest paces in the nearby shadows. Rei stands here wreathed in scintillating flames reminiscent 
    of a rising phoenix. She wields a truesilver broadsword in her left hand and a wyvern-shaped shield 
    in her right.
    You see a single exit leading down.
    
    Rei Lorianis, the Equinox says, "Igbert wanted food."
    
    You pace impatiently back and forth.
    
    Rei Lorianis, the Equinox says, "But not that food, apparently."
    
    You say, "He eats babies?"
     
    Rei gives Igbert the once-over, eyeing him suspiciously.
    
    Rei Lorianis, the Equinox says, "Well no. That's the problem."
    
    You say, "We will give these babies a proper burial."
    
    Rei looks about herself, rubbing her chin thoughtfully.
    
    Stars fill the firmament, illuminating the evening sky with a pale light.
    
    Rei Lorianis, the Equinox says, "How?"
    
    Wiping away a tear, Wyll holds the deceased babies close to his chest, shielding
    their cold bodies away from the elements as he looks away from Rei, unable to look her in the eyes. 
    "I will find a place." He says, his voice shaky.
    
    Rei eyes you suspiciously. "Well then. Do I HAVE to participate or can you take care of it in your
    own?"
    
    Wyll finally turns, glancing at Rei from the corner of his eyes. "I think you've
    done enough." With that, he makes his exit.
    
    A secluded corner of an overgrown orchard.
    The softly sighing wind rustles the leaves of the overhanging trees beneath the distant sound of
    running water. The scent of apples and apple blossoms fills the air with a sweetness that can almost 
    be tasted, while the lush carpet of green and brown cushions the tread with softness. This abandoned 
    orchard exudes peace with each new breath of wind. Several large white oak trees form a peaceful 
    grove. <-- sorry to the grove owner, now you have ghost babies
    You see exits leading northeast and northwest.
    
    Wyll carefully wraps each baby in their blankets and places their cold, lifeless
    body on the ground before he begins to dig small graves. He digs two side by side so that the babies 
    will have each other in their final resting places. As he stands up from the digging, he walks over 
    to the river and washes his dirty, dirt-caked paws and then returns to the babies. He carries each 
    one carefully, sniffling as he places them into their graves. He bows his head, eyes closing as 
    tears stream down his cheek and muzzle. Finally, he buries them, making sure the area looks 
    undisturbed so that they can rest peacefully. "I will bring you flowers, little ones. Rest in peace.
    "

  • Re: Stagnation and super duper lame October promotion

    Yeah, tons of us are bored. But the tons of us that are bored are also a diverse group of player types.

    I don't think going hardcore in one direction or another is going to solve any problems and it will certainly alienate one group or another. You need a diverse group of players for a game to hum along. Admittedly, I'm quite bored right now, but I'm not going to leave the game and I don't see myself leaving anytime soon. I really do want to see more events with rewards/incentives to participate. I'm even trying Aetolia at the moment, but I don't like it enough to truly leave here.

    Out of all the IRE games, Imperian is my absolute favorite. In many ways, I enjoy the small close knit community. I use to see it as a con, but it certainly is a pro now in my eyes. I say this because I've had spats with pretty much 80% of our active population and come the next day or week, or however, we're back to business. I'm not sure if this were a more populated game, we'd be back to normal with each other if we truly got into it.

    Yesssss, let joint accounts be a thing. This way in case anywhere ever decides to RP divorce court, it will be extra juicy when joint accounts are brought up.

    PS: If anyone plans to divorce anytime soon, please do a divorce court. I desperately want to be an audience member.

    Can the path system automatically unlock and open doors you have keys to? Can we have a single command for attempting to unlock and open doors we have keys to? It isn't hard to code around, but I am lazy.

    Do you have CONFIG AUTODOORS ON? I just tested this and I automatically walked into my house which is normally locked with key in hand.

  • Re: Split Wheel Spin Discussion

    @Krysaliss and @Anette

    I'm all for calling out the faults of the wheel, but Imperian allows us to buy credit spins as well as website spins. We also get a free spin daily, granted the free spins prizes aren't anything to write home about, free is free. Get 8000 gold today from the wheel? Lame. I'll come back tomorrow and hope for a phylactery. Achaea doesn't have free spins and if you want to spin at all, you're going to be paying out of your real life pocket.

    That is one thing I appreciate here and it was something they highlighted during the recent stream is that they want to make sure that you can still participate and get involved in things without spending real money. Which is why we have a promo market and why we can pretty much trade any promo items between each other(this month we got earrings for example). This is valuable to our economy.

    All the prizes you can win from the paid website spins are prizes you can win with credit spins. It's also stuff you can buy freely from the promo market provided you have the credits to spend.

    Yes, you have to spend $300+ to get a value from the paid spins, but smaller options are available if you don't want to spend that much. The value isn't as great, but the value is still there. Yes, this is a game, but we come here knowing it is a commercial MUD.

    Personally, I prefer playing here because I know the game is actually looked after and cared for. And I know if I have problems, I'm going to get a response in a reasonable time from admin. But look, they have to eat and they have to make a living and if they are a business who wishes to grow, they're going to want to profit. So that's why they charge us money for virtual items and currencies. I'm 100% with buying things to support this game, but that's also my choice as an adult as it is yours.

    When it comes down to it, at the end of the day, when you buy credits or buy promotional spins/phylacteries/lesson packages, etc, what you are paying for is convenience. You can 100% get everything you want from this game from simply bashing and earning gold, but it's going to take you a significantly longer time to do so. It is going to depend on how you value your time.

    That's a lot for me to say, but to touch on the comment about adults with responsibility.. well adulting ain't easy and for what it is worth, the game is still Free To Play and will always be. You can also get lucky and get a phylactery on your free spin and end up with a 500 credit artifact from it.
