Tomorrow late morning/early afternoon, a mini epic will kick off to explain the meaning of the ominous web. Depending on players’ level of success will determine the final reward.

Just a note… The thing you have to do is meant to take awhile (days).

arghhh I hope the wifi holds on up on the train(s) that I’ll be on. If so, I’ll have nothing but time to dedicate to this… not that I don’t already do that but.

Is the reward available to everyone or just participants? Out of town the finale week so curious when it will end and what level of effort I may need to make to get in game.

Depending on which reward happens, there will be a window to claim the reward. Strongly depends on the level of success though.

What if we all jsut wait to see what happens? is there a new map ready for a broken world?

this is an instant gratification world. Waiting is not looked well upon. I am interested in what is going to
happen but in this case waiting doesn’t bother me

Has anyone found any way to determine if we’ve done any discernible damage to this giant outer space pinata?

I saw a few comments in game that I want to make clear.

Stopping this meteor is going to take awhile. Not just hours, but days. Don’t feel compelled that you need to spend every waking moment bashing it. The flow is dependent on players though. Progress is slow, but eventually you’ll move into the next phase. Because this can happen at any point, it may not happen during a time where a lot of people are present.

The reward will be for everyone. You do not need to participate in saving the world to receive it. You do not need to be there if you are successful in stopping the meteor.

There are two phases to the meteor. You are currently in phase one.

Rewards are dependent on which phase is completed. There is also a very large consequence if you are not successful.

Muwahahahah!

A smoking hole east of the Spine would be favorite.

Of course, while we were having this very discussion at the meteor, there were those who suggested west of the Spine a better fit. Pfft. . .

Sadly, Clunk wasn’t there to speak to just stopping up Zul and generating harmony.

Such great fun!

Thanks for that info, Wyrom. I think a lot of us were just unclear if we were on the right track. This confirms we are!

Looking forward to this one.

I also stopped the messaging since it was just adding to the spam. I’ll only have key messaging show up.

I don’t suppose you’d consider adding some kind of progress indicator for how we’re doing on the current stage? Seems IC to have a sense of how much impact you’ve had so far.

And at the rate people are taking friendly fire with this event, 🙁 I’d like to suggest implementing a very handy way it’s done in DragonRealms. I was rather shocked 2ish years ago when I learned no such thing existed here.

There are options to CAST on an area spell.

CAST CREATURES means you get the area-ness invoked, but never hits an unfriendly.

CAST AREA means you’re gonna hit creatures and characters if there are any.

Please tell me you’re going to share what all the results were when this is over? Also failure to stop the meteor will result in an instance reset. The One, The Other, The Many, and the Grey will recreate the world from scratch. Good news we’ll have all new races. Bad news we’ll have all new characters.

I heard if we win against the meteor, Savants will be added. If not, Wizards will get nerfed.

As far as progress goes, I’ll think about it.

You guys really did a number on it today. I’m surprised to see how far along things are.

>>Re: Death and Logout

Getting a lot of reports/concerns about dying and decaying in the event area, as well as logging out. The web is a temporary event area, which typically means we don’t want you to stick around after the event closes. Those who log off will be booted to a predetermined room. You are over Mount Aenatumgana, there is a rope of spidersilk up there (that’s the “true” way to the event, I added several others around the game since I didn’t see anyone investigating). The closest location is Pinefar to where you are.

I’m temporarily disabled the log out issues, but it will be in full force during phase two.

>> Luxies cast post

That’s been a sticking point a long time. Some spells can be cast player friendly, some can’t. Most that can be target fewer creatures when they are cast player friendly, so people use the unfriendly version just to not be reduced.

Bigger discussion than this thread.
