  1. Turns to the next page, Mr. Mane is delighted to have a source of news once more in the Empire since his beloved Grape Vine was pushed out of the Capital. So many articles and information! He turns to the world section and notices the interview with Elendil.. “More nonsense about a supposed deficit I see...” the Secretary of the Treasury mutters.. He turns to the next page and resumes excitement on the topic of Legal Death.
  2. Mister President, I rise to introduce the State of the City Address Livery Proposition of 1769
  3. Missed some people due to name changes.. this team is made up of Ex-GMs and you want us to be thorough? ?
  4. Ex-GM Team Annual Newsletter 2020 Estimated Membership ~230 and Rising! [Click Here For Google Doc Formatted List] <Introduction> Since 2011, the Ex-GM team has been a home to those who still wish to be a part of a team, but this time the members are allowed to neglect their duties. This team is made up of veterans of this Roblox server, ex-larpers as well as players ranked Bronze-Silver on the well-known Point and Click Space MMORPG, League of Legends. The annual newsletter allows the team to stay up to date on current members and assist in the recruitment of prospective members, see list of possible recruits below. As a disclosure the Ex-GM Team Board acknowledges that there are some members of our team with an unsavory history, while we could kick them off the team, that would put that member back onto staff which would not be swell with the community so we shall carry the burden. Benefits Members of the Ex-GM Team receive comprehensive counseling for their loss of authority and self-believed power, funding provided by the Ex-Staff Foundation for a Better Life. Graduates receive a lifetime membership to the EXATUTOEXGMOLOTC, or Ex-GM’s Against The Unfair Treatment Of Ex-GMs on Lord of The Craft. A gravestone in LOTC’s Ex-GM graveyard, when administration realized this was not worth the effort the graveyard was moved to Chairmen Anorexichippo’s Single Player World “Anore’s World Save 2” Responsibilities and Dues As an Ex-GM you are responsible for reminding the community at least once a month that you were indeed once a GM. Upon leaving the server, you are obligated to return to the forums on occasion and post a status about how staff used to be better. Whether you are active on the server or not, all of your opinions are welcomed and valid in any dramatic server issue the community is dealing with. Current Matters Planning of the Ex-GM Team Wellness Retreat We are currently looking into multiple venues for the upcomming Ex-GM wellness retreat, we have reached out to KorvicCraft and Warlords but have not been able to confirm whether they can support our 230 members online without a waiting queue. SchoolRP has reached out but we believe it is best to keep some of our members at least 5 miles from a school. Anorexichippo Stepping Down Upon leaving the Ex-GM team and changing his name to BasketWeaver, Anorexichippo has decided it is best for the future and in line with our mission that he steps down from position of Chairman of the Board. He will move into an Vice-Chairman Advisory Counsel to the Board on future matters handing off the position to Bungo. The New Chairman Bungo will serve the board well and will create a great future for Ex-GMs everywhere. Tombstone Designs for Future Ex-GM Graveyard We are still on the look for compact but tasteful tombstone designs for the Ex-GM graveyard, while we have received various submissions, tombstones in the shape of phallic objects will no longer be accepted. Rescheduling of Infraction Bingo As many members of our team do not understand how infractions work, Infraction Bingo is going to be postponed until further notice, we are looking into bringing in special counsel to explain how infractions work so we may actually play the game. Search for Forgotten Members Many names of members have been lost over the years, if you know of someone missing on our membership list below, please contact Anorexichippo at Basket#4977 to make the necessary adjustments. We cannot leave anyone behind. Recruitment Strategies for New Ex-GMs Currently our class of 2020 is quite small in comparison to past years, while we are not worried, we are looking into better recruitment strategies to pull from the current prospective members of the team. We are sure more will join before the year is up. Notable Mentions Cruzazul ‘16,’19 - Longest time trying to avoid being on the Ex-GM team, from 2013-2016 and in 2019.

  5. Gustav Ratmane, seasoned Gunner of the 2nd Brigade, had not attended training prior to the operation, he had not operated siege equipment since the battle at Mohk Uruk over two decades ago.. He did not know Vitaly Valic, but what Gustav remembered of the battle was that at one point, one of his rats chewed the rope setting off the trebuchet. In that moment he looked around, his superiors had not realized his misfire.. so he began to load up another shot and carry on with the siege.

  8. I. Introduction Mane & Associates was established in the year 1759 with their current base of operations being held in the canals of Helena. Their primary business venture involves the production, distribution, and promotion of Kelp products and utilization. The Mane’s first business venture involved the operation of Helena’s first barbershop owned by Gustav Mane. Gustav’s Hair Cutlery had been profitable until Gustav was forced to close due to financial hardships during the war. The Mane family discovered that their specialty made shears for hair cutlery worked tremendously in the harvesting of Kelp, because of this, Theodore Mane, Gustav’s younger brother, decided to form Mane & Associates along with his business partner, [REDACTED]. II. Operations The primary source of revenue for Mane & Associates is through the production, processing and distribution of Kelp and Kelp-based Products. Mane & Associates currently operates in the cities of Helena & Selm but is continuing to expand their reach. The current product line involves: Bulk-Order Dried Kelp Dried Kelp has been found to be a cost efficient and eco-friendly fuel source for consumers of all sizes. This fuel burns slowly, efficiently and costs much less then you’ll be charged by coal miner price gougers.

  9. We are working on that however, just want to get the structure in place first.
  10. Infraction Log Update Otherwise known as. Operation K.O.I. P.O.N.D Keep. Organized. Infractions. Please. Or. No. Desert. <Introduction> Good afternoon, everyone! Its been a long process for this small project, but we’d finally like to let you in on some changes being made to how moderation handle infractions and how that affects you! <Old System and Its Flaws> Prior to the transition, Moderation have been using a discord channel to file our infractions, while this system was convenient for many reasons such as Moderation being able to see any time an infraction is made as well as easily view the form and media that came with it, it was lacking in some areas of more concern. For one, the system was flawed in its organization, having to search discord chat for the log history but it also had a severe lack of a backup solution. We set out to improve the system that our infraction protocol operates out of, to make it more organized and secure, along the way we added some features that will help to create better transparency on the protocol and also a path for a smooth and easy upcoming infraction appeal system. <Improvements to the System> New Interface - One of the biggest problems with the infraction system way the failure to explain the structure of the infraction system and what the levels of tiers mean. This has not only led to miscommunication, but also to many feeling they were caught off guard by a punishment because the ability to view where they sit with infractions was not readily available. This system will require the moderator to enter the UUID and it will pull up a list of past infractions as well as mark on the chart your current history. This chart will soon be updated to reflect the new organization structure for infraction protocol. The Moderator can then view the individual infractions for more information. One big thing that this system improves upon is areas of organization, of the moderators are more organized with their collection of information and documentation then they will make more appropriate decisions. Look to the Transparency section below on what else this could mean for the community. Security of Data - All of the infractions are now stored on a separate tab of the program, the actual database of the infractions is locked and secured only accessible for edits by Mod Managers and Admins, actions are logged and tracked to prevent tampering. In addition the database will be routinely backed up to ensure it cannot be lost. Improved Transparency - Now this is the area that I believe will be more important to the player. Part of making this system more user friendly was to open up the opportunity for the player to better understand it. Because of this, everyone on the server can request to pull up their personal infraction history with a Moderator and go over their various infractions and see the chart as a whole and where they sit. From that point the player will have a better understanding of what having multiple infractions means for them, but more importantly but allowing for the appeal of infractions. Being able to see how the infraction system currently affects you and what you can do about it will greatly increase the transparency at which moderators can use this system and continue to work and improve it. Infraction Appeals - With this system the ease of moderation and the player for appealing infractions will be improved greatly. Players are not only able to get an update with where they sit on the infraction chart but also be able to to appeal their past infractions. The new system will be put in place when all the past logs are finally imported. Please look out for further details on that to come. In addition, until a formal process is put into place, I will personally open myself up to going through your own personal infractions with you if you contact me at Basket#4977<Pros and Cons > Benefits - Improved Transparency - More Organized Logging - Adaptable to Change - Secured Data and Backups - Requires Consistency Current Flaws - Lack of Notification when a Infraction is made, for now Managers and Admins will track the history but in the future a system for notifying when you have made an infraction will be made. - Not Implemented with the Forums/Freja - Lack of image viewing without Clicking link when viewing individual infraction. - Only one person can pull up logs at a time (Though I do not foresee this being an issue) ~ Will Add any Additional Constructive Criticisms and Suggestions to Add on this list as well as a reference. ~ <Conclusion> I’d like to state that this update is not expected to be a fix for all the issues players have with the infraction system as a whole, but it will be a step in the right direction and a foundation for easier updates and improvements. The updates to the various tiers and levels related to Infractions will be posted later this week by Sykogenic. Once that is pushed out all past infractions from 1/1/19-Today will be re-classed to fit the new system to avoid mix ups when looking at old vs. new infractions. I will gladly answer any questions players have in the comments in regards to this new system or the whole system in general to try to give you all a better picture on how it all works. With a better understanding of it I believe both staff and the rest of the playerbase will have more ideas on how to improve upon it. <TLDR> New system for keeping track and logging infractions. Allows for easy viewing of infraction history. Players will be able to request it and will make the infraction appeal process run smoother. <Special Thanks> Thank you to everyone on the Moderation Team who spent time logging and moving all the old infraction data into the new system. It was a lot of data entry that I was too lazy to do on my own.

  12. Gustav returns to his humble abode deep in the murky sewers of Helena.. he contemplates whether he should run once more for Liveryman of Helena having served four terms through out his life. As he tries to pull off his self designs Liveryman sash he realizes he has worn it so long that that it has become glued to his sewage soaked clothes.. “Hmm..” he turns to his rodent companions “Perhapssss thisss is a sssign we have ssspent too long in the politicssss above.. We shall hang up our sassssh and finally retire” in that moment he rips off his sash. He only hopes that his impact on the city shall last as long as the rashes that cover his body.
  13. As Gustav Ratmane goes about his daily routine of bathing in various spaces around Helena’s waterworks he finds a flyer while reaching for his scrubbin’ brush. “Only one mina for fresssssh sssewer water? Th-h-hatsss a sssteal” he says, while literally bathing in said water for free.
  14. So you are in the same boat as me, currently Llir and Tythus are still trying to track down the issue but this problem has plagued Minecraft servers for a decade. As of now there are two fixes for this, the first is to go into your router settings and disable NAT Acceleration (it will give this option specifically, if it doesn’t do not click anything related to disabling NAT specifically). The second option is safer, but might have an additional cost to you, it is what I currently have to do to connect to the server and that is through the use of a VPN. I’ve found that the problem goes away when I connect my VPN to the UK. I’m sorry if neither solution works for you, we can only hope that Tythus and Llir figure it out, but it’s related to your IP connecting to the server so it has nothing to do with the Minecraft client itself.
  15. With Ratmane and Mr. Beautiful I feel like Helena is becoming Gotham.
