Welcome to the Barren Realms MUD Newsletter. Come visit us at telnet://barren.coredcs.com:8000/

We've been kinda slow lately. Where've you been? *peers at you intently*


Mylymok: Could you grant Illithids an 'intuition' spell that's equivalent to identify?

Jello: how about an edit to the remort code to only allow remorting once per day... incessant remorting is getting old

Christmas: i think that avians should get a healing spell so they can cure themselves something small would be
just as great or maybe a gs spell

Azalea: Is there a way to break the practice screen up into two sections, one being ig skills the other oog?

Disaster: we should have a "help weights" that lists total carry weights and max weapon weights for all strengths

Bud: could alignment be switched TO karma

Replies by DIsaster to last week's newsletter;

about pardoning: i disagree with any plan to change how pardoning currently works. with the code set up as it is,
it should be all but impossible to get either a killer or a thief flag. if you somehow find a new way to get one,
i'm of the opinion that it should be reported to imms right away, and that requiring an imm to remove it is a good
way to ensure that happens. besides, it's not like imms are rarely on, and giving such flags can be used as a low
level punishment or torment. allowing non-imms to remove it would sort of defeat that purpose. and anyways, it's not
as if having a killer flag makes it impossible to play, it just makes it a little bit harder is all.


From Dove:

1. Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says, "Dam!"

3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they started a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says, "I've lost my electron." The other says, "Are you sure?" The first replies, "Yes, I'm positive."

5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? He wanted to transcend dental medication.

6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why?" they asked, as they moved off. "Because", he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan" Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal"

8. These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

9. Mahatma Ghandi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of callouses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath This made him...(Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good)... a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to his friends with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
