Notes from the Realms:

Joysinger: a little quest reminder

i'd just like to remind everyone that you have just a little more than a week to finish this one!
so get your butts up and working! ;)

for further info, questions, or anything, please take a look at the quest forum where i posted rules and stuff.
www.barrenrealmsmud.com/forum for those of you who don't know how to get there ;)
also, if you aren't a member yet, make sure to get an account! it's fun!! ;)


--------------------------------
IDEAS:

CrazyChaos: A spell that reduces spell lag, and maybe as a downside it makes spells cost twice as much mana.

Brodgar: I found this post from Slart in the ideas waaay back in a '97 newsletter, but I think it still has
merit. How about a $undo for C4, that has to be confirmed by your opponent?

Solomnius: interest for having money in the bank?

Kiri-- as I always say, only if we have bank robberies too :)

Cinder: To cast a harmfull spell like fireball or acid blast on yourself, you should have to type your whole
name (c 'acid blast'cinder). Everytime I attack a mob that starts with "c" I do at least 1000 damage to myself first.

Reply by Bluestar:

Rubrik: a whois command that will tell you a little about a person, such as level, race, title, last logon,
maybe kills in arena or something like that.

The only thing it doesn't show from that list is kills in the arena Otherwise that's the command
you were speaking of For more info on how to change the information in your profile type help profile.

Reply by Everybody:

Actually, profile doesn't show their current title, either... you'll have to wait to see them online and use the "whois <player>" to see that.
(or the ever useful who command, of course...)

can't blame me for trying - aren't banks insured these days? even if the bank is robbed my money would still be safe no? if so... sure, bring in the robbers (i spose you could let smeagain be a robber if he wants)

Awww come on, that's just plain lazy. Type more than a C. If you're so lazy you can't type more than a "c" you deserve the damage you inflict on yourself. Sheesh!
