    Only question on imbuing was about artifacts, and... They say the reward isn't great enough. It'd be greater than the "reward" of getting those artifacts as is, at least.

    So after reading all this I only have one question.... What do you guys (@Kyronix, @Mesanna, @Bleak) have against Gargoyles? They can't wear the Tiger Stuff... Can't wear the Robe... Why have they been left out?

    Not being able to alter items that have an equivalent gargoyle graphic is a bit silly...like the shadow dancer leggings...

    We get that Hawkwind's robe has a special graphic, but that's a poor excuse to make it unalterable. Just have it alter into fancy gargish robe. Problem solved. (Shadow dancer leggings can become gargish leather legs)

    Also, what Ender says about imbuing artifacts is true. The "reward" is completely in the eye of the beholder. Furthermore, when Imbuing was released, most anything under 500 weight COULD be imbued, so we know there are no technical hurdles to overcome. As for "balance" that's kind of a silly excuse, seeing as most of the old artifacts are seriously anemic.

    A certain little goblin was less than happy with the response to her gypsy wagon question... especially after Mesanna said they might give the goblins "little red wagons". :(

    I'd like to clarify some things written about me from that transcript. Stratics does not have a "head person under owner" so it cannot be me like the person said, that's just not the way the website structure is organized and I am not sure why that was even mentioned. Also, the person said they are my "head emissary" which is not true. The person has been removed from the guild for multiple issues that have happened recently.

    I think we were all taken by surprise by that. And can you imagine Mesanna getting involved in all our little in-game dramas/misunderstandings? The poor woman would be working 24/7... :p I think she handled it well.

    Was I the only one who was confused why someone was talking to mesanna about a guild issue?

    I applaud her for how she handled that.

    In game, I'm fine with anyone RPing how ever, but on the forums... it can be a bit much. Not just goblins, anyone who types in a funny dialect, or in character.

    You know I don't even mind it on Shard forums and really in RP forums it's perfectly acceptable, but in a broad general forum, I personally find it at times a bit on the discourteous side. We're a community of varying play styles, and I try to make every attempt to respect that. When dealing with members of the RP community in game, I assume a persona fitting my character, which is and remains consistent with the adventures I've taken Him on.

    Even on the forums, if a thread is RP in nature I'd do this if I had something to contribute. But say here on UHall or in our Stratics Bug Reports forum if someone has an issue, I don't want to have to spend time deciphering the fictional dialect they write everything in before I can attempt to assist them. If someone doesn't have English as a primary language, since I don't speak any other fluently, no problem I'll happily exercise patience with them to resolve their issue. But write it in Goblin, Orkish, or Clown Shoe-ese because you elected not too, then you're just making things harder on me and yourself, because you elected to create a greater potential for miscommunication.

    used to be in the tos that posts were required to be in English (or an english translation provided)

    when did this change? i messaged ron bron about it and he said it didnt matter since we were switching (at the time) to the new site with a translate feature.
