The summon I seems a bit out of sorts, it gives a 101 hp Giant Ant Soldier that is level (10)
the summon II seems more in order, as it gives a beetle level (4)
august 18, "Current module 190817 Puffy 6241"
tried to rest twice, paid innkeeper twice, tried, failed, paid again and failed a second time
still unable to rest in rooms in the Faceless inn, tried to click the room rest thing and got "no resting allowed in this area"
clicking the rest button on the character is met with "you may not rest at this time"
1- what sort of story would you like to see? Stories where the server population is forced to work together
2- what sort of event would you like to do? something light and fairly short (my time is not always the best, many times having to leave before the conclusion of the event, when i do tag along, lately i have been lucky and my time to leave has lasted just slightly longer than the expedition)
3- what sort of foes would you like to fight? easy ones, i do not really like fighting (that is what allies are for)
4- do you like puzzles, riddles and none-combat mysteries? i do prefer these personally, but the server has to prosper, if these can get people in, but i think more people prefer action
5- do you prefer serious tales, funny and light, wild and ridiculous? funny and light, and even wild and ridiculous (i abhor tales where there are helpless victims we are powerless to aid, those events, i simply will turn around and walk away, there were some in the past i found offensive, especially in v3 where children and powerful villains were involved, those i HATE, the one event very nearly had me quit the server)
6- what sort of areas would you like to adventure into? i personally prefer wide open areas (i like avenues of escape available)
7- can you think of anything new that could bring entertainment to the server? perhaps a return of the arena events in some form, this always seemed popular with many of the players and do draw a lot of people (i do not like participating, i am ok with watching, it is pretty evident i am really weak in combat, so for me to participate is really out of the question, i tried a long time ago and failed miserably, that left a sour taste in my mouth, but i have noticed others having a lot of fun in these events, and i did mention i am ok watching)
@amy-veln said a lot of what i feel, i try to limit when i explore now, i have found a lot of things that can see invisible characters, and even with my summons i do not fully feel safe in many areas, i still try to explore, but the distance i will go is limited to how long my duplicate spells last, the exploring set, and when they wear of, the ones to get me home
there are a awful lot of things in the land now that can see you while invisible, and i am discovering more as time goes on. in the past if i came across a new creature, i would sometimes test it, or retreat depending on where my characters spell situation was at.. far too often i find myself scrambling when to my horror i find a creature that can see me, and i have found a few of them, granted the creatures according to their kind should be able to see invisible, but that is taking a toll on my in game morale when it comes to exploring
i do not like the idea of a wipe, but if it were what is needed to save the server, i guess it is needed
keeping that in mind who will a wipe remove from the playerbase as to who it will bring in? but sitting in the server 1/96 something needs to be done. but i have made my suggestions to the point of irritation
from one of the remaining, i guess i must be one of the vile garbage.
numbers attract numbers, i will not mention what i suggested numerous times in the past, no one needs to hear it one more time.
guiding and helping new players will be paramount when this is turned around, there will always be grievers, cannot be helped, just make sure they do not set the rules and drive away plyers, i had people in the very distant past send me tells telling me i have to do this..ie: follow them other wise i was metagaming..we no longer have that problem, our problem is numbers
bottom line..in a single phrase "numbers attract numbers"
there is no end to suggestions on how to make this happen
