    Yes, you will have a different character on each forum, so if you want to play more than one, we can do that.

    But, to pvp youself would be unethical. Dont make us code safeguards around that. We all are here to have fun, arent we?

    Just out of curiosity-

    In the game there are various places where you can post text. I found a message about how to use color. If I as a player specify a white or yellow color (for example, using `&), will that still get through?

    Okay, after some experimentation, white/yellow text shows up readable when posted even if I specified white or yellow, but shows up white/yellow in the little preview under the text entry area.

    That would be the javascript preview. Im not gonna edit that code. If you dont TRY to use white and yellow, it wont give you that issue.

    I don't intend to fight myself. That's hardly any fun (besides being unethical).

    Speaking of unethical, I wonder if I could write a script to just log myself in every four hours so I can get new game days (and earn interest) over night.

    Could? Easily. Too lazy.

    Yes, I see now. I thought it added gold after the message! Sorry.

    • prcAdap agrees : I did it once to find out - second time I asked the does it hurt bit - no reverse from there. Do that and you get reborn too.

    So, stuff like "The PIT of Rebirth" and "It is believed that by giving yourself to the pit, you will be reborn to this world, and can start your life with a clean slate." dont warn you from jumping into the pit?

    I guess I'll edit the module to make it warn you even more...

    I've now added the text:

    A sign hovers above the pit, reading 'YOU RISK LOSING EVERYTHING IF YOU DONT LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!'

    Is that warning enough?


    P.S. - The Pit was created so users who arent happy with thier choice of characters can be reborn and start over.

    Yeah - I assumed it was something like that, but I clicked the "Does it hurt" option as I thought this would give a description or something. It doesn't and throws you in anyway (Of course it hurts! in you go).

    Most annoying

    Question, when I hit level 4 I got a new special move (Increased healing). My bash had a 1 beside it an the Increased healing had a 2. Apparantly this doesn't mean I have one bash use and 2 healing uses because I used the healing once and then I couldn't do any more special moves. So, what do those numbers mean.
    Dear God. What is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.

    They're usage points. The "healing" uses 2 of them, bashing uses 1. So, you can do 2 bashes or 1 heals per turn. As you level up, the number of points will increase.
