    I mean... C'mon!

    Four out of seven gifts are kittens raised by Bleak? Jealous a bit of the other developers?

    I think the RNG may use time as a seed for some things. I ran through a group of chars at the same time on GL and they ALL got a Mesanna kitten :p It seemed rather streaky when I fan a few individually too, so... o_O

    If they're using such a granular unit of time, it ignores what home computers have been able to do for 30 years. If anyone else remembers the old Commodores, the internal clock counted jiffies, which was a very effective RNG seed. Ataris' RNG seed was based on noise patterns in circuitry.

    It's not impossible to get a bunch with the same name, just highly improbable, but we see an awful lot of highly improbable sequences.

    Mesanna and the devs our running a uo kitten & puppy mill Blackthorn the King was tipped off. Now to save the cuties they set up these cupids for us to save them. :)

    Seem the same with theese cuties. Maybe its common for cats and dogs to give birth to four little ones at a time?

    I'll trade you one Bleak Kitten for two of your Kyronix Puppies. Everyone knows they are worth twice as much. :D

    :) A Bleak kitten is decidedly absent from my collection, as is an Onifrk puppy, though I have 2 Onifrk kittens and 2 Kyronix puppies.
