Anthony, if you're talking about the Guild of Thieves, it's not so secret that you can't ever ever talk about it. Especially OOCly on an external forum that I don't even have any control over, lol. I admire your willingness to not go into detail through.

What you're going to want to do is find an existing member. There's like 3 of them that are semi-active right now, one in particular plays quite a bit, daily. The Guild is entirely player-initiated. Just have one of them vouch for you and you're in.

Though, a good thief doesn't get caught. You might want to tone it down a bit. If your character gets a reputation of overt crimes and constantly being in jail, then that's actually going to work against you. the Guild doesn't want it's members revealing themselves to the public. A thief with a reputation is no good to them.

If you're talking about the Claw of Star, there's no restrictions to join, you just need to find the right NPC...

Yeah, I think I'm gonna try and live the strait and narrow life from now on, at least for a little while anyway heh. The guild of thieves is what I'm talking about. I just haven't figured out a way to approach someone, because it's like how do you ask someone if they're a thief? I'll get it though, now that I know that's what I gotta do.

What confuses me, hmm, a lot of little things. I am liking the game a lot though, especially since the new server is far less laggy. I want to make some money to buy a horse so I can go further without always having to be worried about food things, but they cost a lot, and I don't have a lot, so I'm just gonna have to work up to it. I do feel like the system fights me sometimes though, because certain objects don't have logical aliases, but I did figure out it usually aliases to the last word in a name. It's frustrating at times when stuff doesn't work the way you'd think it should, and you have to play guess the syntax to try to get it to behave.

It really is so much better now with the new server. I'm enjoying myself a ton playing. As to making money, I always start a new char off atempting to do tasks if they join a guild, asuming I found a decent weapon in the crate usually in the town square. If not that, then  foraging out in the forest, and once I've saved up a little over 400 riln more or less, I buy an axe and borrow a handcart to do some logging. But that's just me, there are a lot of ways to earn riln.

Ironcross.  All objects in the game have a "pre-read" which is basically the adjectives such as "large oak", a noun, which is just that, such as "gate", and may optionally have a "post-add" which is some additional details on the item such as "bound with cast iron reinforcements". Very few objects in the game have multiple nouns, but general rule for those is to match based off the first word in the noun. If it is hyphenated, you can match based off of either the first or second.

You always target the item by the noun. If there are multiple items with the same noun in a room, you can use part of the pre-read to assist in targeting the item. The post-add is never used for targeting.

For example, in a room with two gates, you could "go oak gate", "go large oak gate", or even "go second gate" to go through the gate that shows up second. Note that "other" is also an alias for second.

If you've found items that aren't following the above, it sounds more like a problem in the way the item was designed than a difficulty with our parsing system. Do you have any specific examples?

Actually, there's the other way around items with the same name. Instead of typing go second gate when there're two gates in the room, you can type go gate 2 and it works just the same.:)

I've been going on Clok a lot in the past few days. Just waiting for the sound pack update, but still, it works well with MudRammer for iOS. The lag is way better, and I managed to create a crude dagger... Once. IC: Not sure how I did it, but I just can't get it to happen again yet. Perhaps I'll rediscover it if I practice more. End IC.

Hmm, nothing really sticks out to me, except I have a memory of another character like a year or two again in another town trying to get a booth in a diner and fighting with it for a while before being able to. I do use the options to help. Actually I just thought of something, but its not a matching issue, I was having trouble adding stuff to a fire and asked and was told what I had to do was swap so the thing to add was in the right hand. Also, I couldn't figure out how to give something to someone, it just wasn't working, item was in my right hand, and it just didn't work, that was really frustrating because it kind of messed up my RP. I'm sure the other person didn't really put much stock in it, but for me to drop something on the ground and them pick it up, you wouldn't do that IRl lol. Let me see what I tried. The help messages were saying if the item was in the right hand you would do give <person> which I tried, I thought I might have spelled their name wrong, so I looked and I was spelling it right, also I was using the automatic tab completion in my client. I tried give <thing> to <person> which the help said would work if the item wasn't in the left hand, I never did get that working.

Give item to person. Don't forget if in the case that whatever you type doesn't work.

Yeah I did try that, and verified it was matching on the item by first looking at it when it didn't work the first time. I tried both methods described, the give <name of person> with the item in the right hand, and the give <item> to <person>, neither worked for me.

after like 10 minutes, not 1, if its doing that for you, its on your end, either your internet is crapping out, your ISP is forcibly resetting the connection, or something.

I know it says way back when that this game is rp enforced, but for those familiar with actually playing the game long term, having experiences in the different guilds, how strict is it? I only ask as the game itself sounds truly wonderful, but I'll admit, I'm probably the world's worse rper ever. smile
I don't mind keeping things in character, aside from a few slip ups here and there, but the going majorly into detail to do the smallest action, I've never been good at. I tend to solo a lot, if I can and really only try to ask for help if I need it, so would that be an issue?
Either way, from all I read here about it's features and such, it sounds pretty cool.
Take care.

Jason blaze, that's your internet for sure. I have the same problem whenever I'm home, lol.
Boomstick, how strict is it depends on how much you want yourself to be "involved". Some guilds have rather serious rp, like those of the church. If you wanna go solo and never involve much, look for something casual.

Hi,
boomstick, I tend to play as you do,and probably suck at rping, but I play this fine, just have your character be a recluse, or say a few things here and there,as you pass by people,and you should be ok.
Will probably start playing this again, when I find my vipmud pack lol.
