      LotC Community Meeting Minutes 01/22/17   01/23/2017

        LotC Community Meeting Minutes 01/22/17 [!] Arockstar28 opened the meeting.   What’s going on with the forums?   Tahmas: Tythus is handling the situation as we speak. It had been fixed earlier but as Tythus had other engagements, he had to step away. Thus, the attack resumed. Tythus will return and continue working on it later. There is no set time as to when they will be back up.   Can I expect the possibility of a frequent mandatory purge of staff teams to fight stagnancy and people just doing jack****? - Jonificus   Josh3738: These decisions are left up to the team leads. Some teams may be purged while others may not.   Why is the map so big? Why was mobspawning turned on? Why do you still keep it on? - Combine   Teegah: The map is large as that is what the community had requested. Mobspawning is turned as it contributes to; The minas economy. Killing mobs have a chance to drop minas. Items for Nexus crafting: Drops necessary for crafting certain items are only given by killing mobs.   How much money do admins actually cut from the donations? Was Tythus’ college paid by LotC?- Chaotikal   Tahmas: Admins receive nothing from the donations. Any funds collected from the server go back into the server. And no, Tythus’ college education was not funded by the server.   Is there any other race being planned for the future?  - Dewlox   Lore Team representatives: No.   501warhead: When it comes down to it, the addition of races will only be considered if it is practical for the server as a whole. In order to implement new ideas that may be considered, it must be submitted the same way as any other lore - through lore submission and review of the LT.   Axios storyline? Will there be a new race implemented/introduced in the next map? - Z3m0s   RideTheSky: It’s going to revolve around a giant chicken. There are currently meetings ongoing in regards to the Axios storyline. The LT is helping with the process and things are still in the works.Things are not being written down or released as the need for confidentiality is necessary to ensure the community is introduced to it at the same time.   What happened to the chapters of Axios? - Nug   LeoWarrior14: The chapters of Axios were started by Benbo (the previous LT lead) but he has since left.   RideTheSky: Benbo took all the documents concerning the chapters of Axios with him as he left therefore there is nothing left for the LT to build upon. Tsuyose wished to continue but seeing as how there was nothing, the Devs needed to remove it.   How long does it take for a charter to get a response? - Adam_barnett   Arockstar28: Ever has appointed certain GMs to handle charter distribution as well as stating that the times to obtain a charter will be shortened. However, they may still take up to a week to be approved.   Who let a trial GM, not even on the war team, arockstar28, make a worldedit on sand during the height of fighting, in a laggy open field skirmish war claim, which inexplicably crashed the server? -Harold   Josh3738: Present members of the war team determined that it would be an interesting dynamic to add to the war claim which unfortunately caused issues along the way.   Gusmarzku: The idea of a bomb was requested by numerous people.   501warhead: The worldedit was not the cause of the crash. There are several mechanisms set in place on the server that prevent WE from interfering and crashing the server.   Addition to previous question: If this was to happen, why were both sides not informed? -Harold   Arockstar28: The underlying reason was it that the bomb was to be a surprise.   Why did the warclaim get allowed to carry on? -Harold   Gusmarzku: There was no reason to not continue it. As well, Admins and GMs came to the decision to keep going.   Did the warteam agree that the war claim should be voided and redone? -Harold   Gusmarzku: No. The war claim continued as by agreement with Admins and GMs, as stated previously.   Did the warteam agree that this worldedit was even a good idea during the middle of the battle? -Harold   Gusmarzku: Yes.   Who made the decision to allow the war claim as valid, when staff incompetency was the main contributing factor to the crash? -Harold   Josh3738: Once the server was back up, the war claim was still playable. Therefore, as the war claim was still playable, there was no reason not to continue and no reason to void it.   Crashing during an open field skirmish is, historically, a voided war claim.  Why was this one allowed? -Harold   Josh3738: Once the server came back up, the server was capable of continuing its operations so there was no reason to void it.   Why is the ET so large? - FuryFire   RideTheSky: The ET is large as it consists of both actors and builders alike. Seeing as how the actors are trying to interact with as many players of the server as possible, time zones come into play. Recruiting ET members who can accommodate and create events for certain time zones is essential. At this time, the ET is looking for players in the Pacific time zone.   The team is also large at the moment because it allows the ET to be stricter on what it is they want. Considering that the community is large, a large team is also needed. However, the ET management is in the works of sizing down the team. Seeing as how they have no quota, the need for activity is the primary requirement for ET and such is taken into consideration when taking on new members.   Are donations keeping up with the monthly and yearly costs? -Wendigo   Tahmas: The server is up and running, so yes.   501warhead: The Christmas sale helped exponentially with the revenue of donations. It should be noted once again that donations always go back to the server and that the Admins do not receive anything. A warm thank you is extended to anyone that helped contribute to the server during the holiday sale.   Any plans to upgrade the server box/host or have you already? -Wendigo   501warhead: Currently the server has more than 64 GBs of RAM and is running very well. While optimization is being sought after, there is no need to place any more expenditure in upgrading.   What’s the max run time we have with the current reserves of money (did the server need personal funds)? -Wendigo   501warhead: While personal funds have been used in the very distant past, they have not been for a long time now. Our current revenue of donations sustains our run time for the moment and donation savings maintain our run time into the distant future. As for the max runtime, that is unknown.   Current and future plans going forward A) Bring in new players & B) Player retention? -Wendigo   501warhead: There is currently a project in the works to help integrate new players into their respective player bases. Getting to know the other players and establishing a sense of community is necessary for player retention.  A majority of the players here have remained as they have established friendships and relations with other players. Therefore, catering to the newer players is essential.   RideTheSky: The AT and ET are working on a project where a new player will spawn in, immediately be immersed into roleplay with a veteran member, and will essentially be introduced into the appropriate player base.   In the past, this flopped as the players were all introduced to the human capital. So the prime idea is to showcase the diversity of the server to the new players and allow them to choose their own path.   Future plugins? -Wendigo   501warhead: Integrating new plugins takes a lot of time and because of this, along with the possibility of the plugin failing, there are no announcements in regards to releasing new plugins. However, at the moment there is a fast travel overhaul underway as well as an instance dungeon plugin. There may be new skills being worked on, but it is uncertain. There are larger projects in the works that the server will be notified of in due time.   Is anything being done concerning the voting websites? The information is outdated and some websites no longer work? -Wendigo   Tahmas: It’s all Ski’s fault, blame him.   Gusmarzku: I’ll do it.   501warhead: Tythus needs to configure the voting settings as the issue may lie within the registration on the voting sites. It’s up to him at this point.   What benefits have been seen, if any, from emerging the LT and MT? - Cybermarzku   Tahmas: The MT is now able to have more control and work more effectively with the lore pertaining to magics. The MT is also now able to vote on what magics they wish to see implemented.   JaxOff: There is more cooperation between both teams but there is not a significant amount of improvement.   Bokermon: With both teams being together in the same chat it helps a lot, communication wise. It’s not perfect, but it’s better. The MT now has more say in what it is they think will be an improvement/detriment to the magic found on the server.   1.8 pvp when???? - Flurgh   Teegah: Just this past friday there was a meeting between the Devs and some PvPers discussing said issue. During this meeting, swing timers as well  as plans concerning PvP were discussed. Also, there are currently three players on the server who have swing timerless weapons. These weapons were permitted during PvP combat and the Devs observed to see what the results were. The issue arises with the fact that, without the swing timers, there is a hit delay and no possibility of combos.   Assassin of Awesome: Removing swing timers isn’t as easy as it seems. There are problems with it.
        When are we getting rid of the two other inactive islands, that aren’t Tahn? - Kinslayer   Tahmas: This is being evaluated. The activity as well as events done on the respective islands are always being monitored. It cannot be said when or even if the islands will be removed. This is to be discussed among the Admins.   501warhead: Removing the islands will result in less space for new settlements that wish to separate away from the main capital cities. However, the problem still exists that new players will find themselves on these inactive islands and only be confused as to where they are. More will be discussed.

  3. Location: An anonymous tavern along the coast of war-torn Banard At an indecent hour on an indecent day for drinking, a dire-eyed young man (who’d look a dead ringer for his father, if he had one) slinks into the smoky old watering hole, home sweet home. As the mercenary walked very deliberately around the bar, his hands out and away from his pockets, a dusty tavernkeep polished an even dustier glass whilst nonchalantly peeking under the bar for his dagger, his old wounds acting up something fierce. The barkeep warily eyed Guildenstern all the way past the bar, until the man slipped through the kitchen doorway and out of sight. A cadre of men surrounded the butcher’s table in the kitchen, brooding over a couple of letters and other documents stained with pig’s blood. They turned toward the newcomer one by one, and the tension in the room was palpable. Some of the younger men peered up in excitement. Others, the older and wiser only looked on in weariness and bewilderment. Baurus even drew his knife. Guildenstern produced a rolled up map from his sleeve and raised his hands to his ears as he approached the table. Although he greeted his knife-clad mate with a brotherly smile, Guildenstern’s cat eyes gave away nothing. He brushed past the gathering to the table and hastily swept away the previous documents, instead laying down his map. “Gentlemun, wae’ve a job.” The man sounded more like he was fighting with his accent then speaking with it. “And wot happens when all goes south, on dis job o’ yers, Guild?” Spoke up Tullian, one of a few navigators truly worth his salt. Guildenstern dared not turn his eyes up from the map as he unrolled it, neither did he grace Tully with a response. “All yew lads familiar wit de whelp who sits 'pon Ulmsbottom’s roightful swumpland on Taahn isle, aye?” Some men nodded in affirmation, while others only muttered confusion. “Well 'es got sumfin' belongs to mae, savvy?” He’d place his hand on his chest. “Dis sounds like revenge, Guild, not a job. Yew tryin’ to crown yerself a King?” Roared old Glenroy. Some of the other men joined him in mocking laughter. “Nah mate... I got nofin in common wit dad.” Guildenstern muttered grimly and frowned up at the old warrior, the look in his eye as cold and alien as ever. “All de loot wae split, eaven.” This had the intended effect, causing a murmur to ripple through the stuffy kitchen. “All de gold, iron… de land.” He let that last word hang a moment. “Devils know oi’ll cot my own cos inta twenty pieces and give each man a share.” ... When Guildenstern and his merry band set sail on a boat requisitioned from Charles II’s fleet to gather allies, they flew this flag: WARCLAIM Tier Chosen: 1st Type of battle: Skirmish Date And Time: 3pm est April 1st the year of our lord, 2017 Side A: The Bastard’s Band & Friends Side B: The Free Dutchy of Mardon & Allies Location and boundaries: Direct Area: https://puu.sh/uZEB3/496b23552e.png Surrounding area of battlefield for reference to location: https://puu.sh/uZEfz/f2ad520e49.png Terms of Victory Upon Victory For...

  7. A Treatise on Cures to Mental Malignations In the following articles I hope to strictly define my findings on the curing of the ill psyche. The mentally unstable being is a tragic figure, thus, it is the duty of the experimentalist and philosopher to generate effective and efficient panaceas to the most debilitating of malignancies. The subsequent remedies outlined thusly are, hence, experimentally proven. I have penetrated deep into the material mind and emerged the other end an enlightened man. Dr. Ambros, Wiz.D. Allow me to preface this article by denouncing one particular cure, that is, trepanation or the drilling of a hole into one’s head in order to drive out demons or other ill-intent spirits which might cause cerebral maladies. I myself have attempted this form of treatment on several civilians patients and found it to be far from effective. If one believes they are infected by a demonic force, I would suggest they speak with their nearest local priest in order for a professional exorcism to be executed. Note that the best form of treatment is a mixture of all the following. It is difficult to determine which treatment works best for each patient, thus, it is far safer and efficient if the practitioner conducts all form of treatment on the patient until they find one which is particularly effective for the individual. Only after should they proceed to more extreme measures such as lobotomy. Hydrotherapy While cold showers or relaxing baths might seem effective, I can assure you, dear reader, such practices are temporary at best and bolstering to the mental illness at worst. Nae, more provocative and aggressive measures need be taken in order to make the gentleness of water potent enough for effective medical treatment. One such method I found effective is to wrap the patient in gauze and place them into a tub of ice water. Allow them to remain in the tub for exactly fifteen seconds or until bubbles stop rising to the surface. Accordingly remove the patient from the water, allow them one minute of breathing time and then place them back under. Repeat until patient seems wholly soothed and sober in their demeanour. Patients given this sort of therapy were generally tranquil in nature after ten sessions, if not a bit cold. Prolonged hydrotherapy seems to cure forms of delusion and hysteria, however, may lead to loss of memory and cognitive function. Rotational Therapy One materialistic theory of the mind is that particular fluids flow through the brain allowing for thought and consciousness. The clear mind has free flowing fluids, the ill mind has slower fluids or potentially even clogged fluids. I have found the best way to remedy such contentions is to strap the patient into a chair suspended from the ceiling by a single chain. The patient is then rapidly spun until they lose coherence. Do not be alarmed, this is simply the fluids in their head readjusting and loosening. However, in order for permanent fluidity of these fluids, several sessions of rotational therapy is ideal. Though repeated weekly to daily sessions for a lifetime is recommended in order to avoid further blockage. Focal Infection Therapy This form of therapy functions on the observation that mental illness is a disease and not innate. Much like the common cold, mental illness can be transmitted from individual to individual through open wounds or poor sanitation. I find that mental illness most often finds its way into the individual via the mouth, namely the teeth. Infected teeth can cause far worse maladies than poor breath. To be most effective, I advise that the infected patient have all their teeth pulled to avoid any further infection. After such, they should be treated with a variety of other forms of therapy to cure the remaining illness. Alchemically Induced Seizures It is a most horrific sight to see those who suffer from tremors and fits of aggressive uncontrollable shaking to lose themselves in their mania. However, the astute observer would notice that victims of such convulsions are serenely calm after their episodes. Therefore, I am of the professional belief that if a convulsions is induced and maintained for a long period of time, the resulting calmness after such convulsions will last equally as long, if not more so. Therefore, to avoid allowing a patient to be overcome by their illness at the most inopportune of times, they ought to schedule regular episodes of convulsion and experience predictable peace of mind afterwards. Patients are to be strapped down to avoid injuring themselves or the practitioners. They are then to be fed or injected with a large dose of seizure inducing drug, something I am sure a capable alchemist or apothecary can produce with the proper reagents. This state of controlled convulsions is to be maintained as long as the professional practitioner sees fit (several hours would be recommended). Once the drug has worn off the patient is then to be closely monitored, though will have peace of mind that they can control their embarrassing convulsions. Do note that I myself have not used such a drug as I am unaware if any exist. However, I found a similar effect of convulsion occurs when a patient is exposed to rapidly flashing lights as a result of illusionary magics, though I do believe an alchemical drug would be far easier to control. Sedation Considering the previous method of curing mental ailment, there are other methods of using alchemical medications when curing the sick. Preparing diluted doses of sleeping potion to induce a sedated state in the patient is quite effective when dealing with the manic and hysterical. While by no means permanent, it can be used to calm the individual while transitioning between other forms of treatment, or simply put them at ease when sleeping for another day of treatment. Be wary, the mentally ill are highly prone to addiction, particularly when perpetually sedated. Granted, perpetual sedation is most effective. Electroconvulsive Therapy Having been a magician by trade some years ago, I am quite aware of the medical potential of the arcane arts despite their generally destructive nature. (i.e. the cauterization of wounds with the evocation of flames). As if to solidify my views of the medical applications of the voidal arts, I have found electroconvulsive therapy to be by far the most effective form of psychological treatment. It can be performed on a wide range of maladies including depression, mania, and catatonia. The treatment is as follows: the patient is strapped to a table or chair to avoid having them injure themselves or the practitioner. Then, two metal rods are placed on either side of their head, just above their temples. Finally, a practitioner of electrical evocation is to send pulses of evoked electricity into the metal rods, and thusly, into the patient's diseased cranium. This is to be repeated several times or until the practitioner feels the patient has received enough for their daily treatment. Long term side-effects may include amnesia, loss of cognitive function, and retardation. However, I am of the belief that the benefits far outway the side-effects. Lobotomy Certainly a permanent solution to mental illness, all instances of lobotomy have shown no relapse from the patients in question. The lobotomy is the practice of inserting a rod into the side of the eye socket, as not to damage the eye, the rod is then used to “tussle” the brain. The resulting effect is a positively placid individual that is, while a bit dull, cured of their previous mania or hysteria. Excellent in soothing the excitable wife, particularly after child rearing. So often do mothers fall into fits of delirium and frenzy after childbirth.
  8. Okay. Rockstar makes a somewhat valid point. I haven't been able to a lot for the server over the past three months because I've been preparing for my School musical which I had a lead role in so I haven't been able to play as much as I'd like to and interact. However tonight was my last performance of the musical which now gives me plenty of time to reestablish my presence on the server and in the community of the server. As for the accusation that I don't do anything for anyone on the server and am simply looking to get the pex of a GM is simply slander. I truly do wish to be able to help others on the server and become more tightly woven with the community as much as possible. This is ironic coming from Rockstar who genuinely surprised me when he got a staff member position and frankly I didn't think he would do well but to my and many others surprise he has done a wonderful job as a staff member. That being said if anyone should be the proponent of giving people a chance to prove themselves it would be Rockstar, and I would love to be one of the people to prove themselves.

  21. Battle Of the Wall _________________________________________________________________________________ Westerlandic forces hold of the undead assault on Leopold's wall- circa 1604 ______________________________________________________________________________________ The sun shone brightly upon the orange fields of carrots and along the ice wooden shingled roofs of Bastion, for many it had been a hectic and sad week after the destruction of Quarryville during the undead counterattack. The undead had been pushed beyond Leopold’s Wall for the first time in a while the people of the Westerlands had some breathing room. The forces of Mordring however had other plans. While soldiers of the Westerlands lined up on the mustering grounds to prepare for a patrol they heard shouts and turned to see smoke rising in the distance, the undead were determined, They would take the wall and end the pitiful existance of the Westerlands and take Bastion in Mordring’s name. Scouts placed their ramshackle ladders up against Leopold's wall as loose bones and dangling flesh bodies wielding rusty weapons clambered over the wall. Within moments the Undead scouts quickly found themselves blade to blade and outmatched by the superior westerlandic and Uruk forces. “Charge!! Fight! For Mordring!” The newly promoted undead lieutenant screeched to his forces in the forest. With his new promotion he was determined to keep it. Another wave of undead riders slammed into the sturdy wooden palisade clambering over the top to engage in fierce combat with the stout defenders. Over the forest however a new threat lingered, soaring closer, yells came up from the already engaged human and orc forces alerting one another to the flying demon now hurling spells towards the wall. Combat was fierce, arrows flew, swords parried. Westerlandic soldiers killed by the forces of Mordring quickly reanimated and joined the undead on their assault of the wall. Soon enough however the humans got their break, the last of numerous volleys of arrows plunged into the demon and it slammed to the grass and moss outside the palisade. The forces of the Westerland quickly took their places at the wall loosing volley after volley of arrows at the undead charging out of the forest and soon it fell quiet. “Team one! Team two! Prepare to move into the forest! Team three remain at the gate!” Cried Commander Polaren as the forces fell into rank and marched into the forest. Not even a few hundred yards out the undead lieutenant unleashed his reserve force of spider cavalry and it slammed into the unprepared and spread out human forces. Through skill and sheer luck the brave men of the westerlands and their allies formed a loose line and began to push back against the undead advance. Blade met flesh, arrows flew through the dense thicket to hit their mark, soon enough however the forest fell silent again. The forces of Mordring could not keep up with the will of humanity to survive. Weakened by their previous defeat the Undead attack upon Leopold's wall was ruined. For now the Westerlands held onto the scrap of land they had claimed. However it would be a long road ahead.
