Update on Host / Server Issues!!!


Hi all!

We appear to be having a gremlin! That gremlin makes the new server reboot every 20 minutes or so. We've had long. Looong talks with the host today and are looking at what the problem is and what the solutions might be.

If the site "refuses to connect" it's literally just that the server is automatically doing something it shouldn't. Give it a second or two and then refresh and it should be up pretty quickly. Our tech support is really good and really on it, so I'm confident this won't be a long term issue.

Any questions, let me know and I'll update here when we have an answer.

Dreamwalking has received an update on how the Experience works. Rather than being 1 Dream = 1 Dreamwalking Exp, it now works as follows.

Progressing Dreamwalking, however, does not work the same way as other abilities or skills. One cannot elect to spend skill points into it, like other skills or even magics. Instead, Dreamwalking is progressed by threading in Emea, be it simple Dream threads or something more intricate and complex. All threads that are completed within Emea (when they are submitted for review) automatically progresses Dreamwalking along the 100 point track. From 0-50 Dreamwalking, each Dream thread grants 2 Experience Points in Dreamwalking. From 51-100 Dreamwalking, each Dream Thread grants 1 Experience Point in Dreamwalking. In practice, this means that full mastery of Dreamwalking requires 75 completed dream threads. Because of this, new abilities and facets of previous abilities are unlocked every 10 points, rather than applying normal skill level tiers to it.

Minor Change to Staff Rank

Hello everyone!

After voting we have decided to change the starting staff rank from New Staff to Apprentice Staff. This is meant to be more than a name change. Prospective and current staff members can remain in or as needed return to the Apprentice position for as long as is desired. This was done to suit those individuals that simply have less time to volunteer and who are happy simply working under a more senior staffer perpetually. Of course this will also remain the starting role for all staff, those that wish to progress to full staff may do so after their first three months, or remain in the rank for as long as they choose.

Feedback!

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that we have the new Wealth System coming out on Feb 1st. We are looking for - and very much welcome - feedback on any aspect of it. To that end, because we've more or less got the system clear now - I've created a "feedback thread" here. By nature, it's going to impact on a lot of areas - so we're creating those guides and so on ready for roll out.

Please consider giving feedback, or helping out with the Wealth Working Group. We've got a team made up of both staff and non-staff players, and every opinion is really important.

Thanks!

Chronicle's Retirement
I am sorry to announce that Chronicle has decided to step down from staff, owing to IRL concerns. He'll be remaining on as a player, so he's not leaving us entirely. Everyone give him a big lovely farewell snoogle!

After a great deal of time and effort the Mutation Guide has been released to the Wiki. This article was created to help everyone better understand the nature of Domain Magic mutations so they can more easily create their own.

*There is now lore that is specific to Spark Personalities and Domain Magic Themes to help you better understand magic as a whole.

If anyone has any questions on the article please let me know and I will try to clarify.

Thanks,

Oracle

Wiki!

Hello everyone!

So we are about to move to a new structure for our wiki menu. This will be happening over the next day or two. The main changes that will be happening are, in fact, already there - underneath the "usual" wiki menu is the new one - which has a number of advantages.

It is drop down so, you can expand the menu as you choose - this also means that you have access to every page via that menu on the left. It is also dynamic, meaning that when we add a page / delete a page / move things around - then the menu will auto update.

We are making use of "categories" - which you can also navigate by - these are on the bottom of each page, and we've tried to make the layout more user friendly. We most certainly welcome feedback!

One specific aspect I'd like to draw your attention to is the PC ACHIEVEMENT section. This is where we are going to record (unsurprisingly) PC achievements. We've taken the "Technology, Invention & Discovery" thread to showcase it - but now - we want you to let us know your pc achievements.

If you have achieved 500 renown, or have reached Exalted in an Immortal Mark, if you've done something which you feel is a pc achievement, please post in the PSF and let us know. Done something that you think is on par with this level of achievement? Please inform us! We'll be updating as we go! And if you've got an image of your pc you'd like us to use? Feel free to link it.

Enjoy!!

A small update to Dreamwalking has been added. Below is the addition, the purpose of which is to answer a what-if question as well as to offer up an additional method of acquiring Dreamwalking.

Any person or being with a soul may enter their own dreamscape from another part of Emea if they fall asleep. This transports them completely into their dreamscape. If they don't already have Dreamwalking, falling asleep within Emea will initiate them. This does not require moderator permission, however, upon receiving a review, a moderator will need to review the thread in order to update your Prophet Notes.
