Hello players,
New point bank item to announce. This one is an idea by Winston. Staff held a quick vote on it, and we've approved the following:
Vial of Ether Rain
These airtight vials of perfectly clear liquid will wash away any scars onto which they are pored. Once falling from the sky in great abundance, the ether rain is preserved using methods that are not well known and once used (in its entirety, on a single scar), the power of the water is lost and may not be used again.
This item can be purchased for 100 point bank points from the Point bank menu.
For anyone wishing to make new point bank shop suggestions, this is the thread to do it at.

Re: News & New Features!

Point Bank in the UCP & Excerpt in posts!!!
Hello!

Massive thanks to Tech Guy for our next update!

Things today!

Changes to Review Template
This change will be largely invisible to people who receive reviews, however the User Interface (UI) for reviewers has changed - we now can input all of the review (feedback, consequences, loot, losses etc) in the UI and, when the review is done it will give you the code for two layouts - either the exiting one-tab-per-pc or a new pc-by-pc-set-of-tabs. This should aid reviewers in being able to just do the review in one place, not having to move between the UCP and the post preview.

Point Banks in Review
Also - we can now award point bank points in a review. Unfortunately, at the moment, we can only award one point bank item (ie: we can award "met an Immortal" or "were awarded Favoured Blessing" - not both). However, we can also award PB via the MCP so please can reviewers be very clear what they are awarding (either just one thing, or one thing + additional stuff via MCP). This should significantly lessen the amount of admin needed for players in terms of having to make PB claims, and ifor mods in time taken to approve etc. This is a first step and future releases will make this more slick / user friendly. But it's a great first step!

Excerpts!
This is SO exciting and I believe will be enormously helpful for all players, be they PC or Mod accounts they're writing on.

We can now identify an aspect of a post as something that we can import into any of our posts in a pop-up box. This will be useful for NPCs, items, flora, fauna, etc.


An example is in this screen shot here:

Image

This can be seen in this post which is pulling the information from this one .

To identify the text as something that you want to be able to be able to appear in other posts you wrap it in bbcode like this

Code: Select all

[excerpt=NAME]
information
[/excerpt]
Where NAME is the name you want to give it. So, for this image, the code is excerpt=Joe

To then place it into your post you put

Code: Select all

[get-post=POSTNUMBER excerpt=name]Wordies[/get-post] 
get-post=
POSTNUMBER is the number of the post. If you don't know how to get that - keep reading.
put a space after the postnumber.
excerpt=NAME is the same name as you've given the excerpt in the post. This means that if you have a single post with 10 NPCs in it, for example, you can identify each individual NPC in the code.

To get the post number
1. Make sure you've selected the post itself. You do that by clicking on the date of the actual post in the top left of the post itself.
2. Then, the URL will show the post number. The post above this one has the following URL

Code: Select all

/viewtopic.php?p=195928#p195928
The post number is 195928

So - I went and put "except" tags around two separate bits of that post.

The first one, I did on the
first bit
- and also on the
last bit
. If you want to be able to follow the link included in the second one, you can "pin" the pop-up and it will then make it clickable!

Please note: these are not visible to guests - you have to be logged in to the site.

Best,

Pegs.

Fate Joins the Prophets
Melrath to Open


Hello all! First I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to Fate, and I'm especially glad as they've decided to take the plunge and join us as a Prophet on this very special day.

They will be moderating Melrath. Fate has a long history as a player character in Melrath and will be bringing that knowledge of its lore to bear as they guide it through the reopening and beyond.

Please give Fate a warm welcome, and wish them good luck!

Hello everyone! Another Prophet arrival to be announced. Please Welcome The Wanderer. He's an experienced player that got their start playing in Yaralon, and now they'll be moderating it as they bring it up to date and get it ready for play. For now he has a big task ahead of him, but please give a warm welcome to The Wanderer!

Yaralon will open once he gets the lore sorted and is ready to take over. Wish him luck!

Heya players:

We're sad to say goodbye to a couple of great staffers who've made good contributions to the site, both ooc and ic. Sadly Tempest will be stepping down as Prophet. We are sure we'll still see her scampering around in her PC guises, however, so please say thanks and hello to her if you get the chance.

Also, Vulpes, a stalwart steward of the Wiki has decided to step away from Propheteering. We hope to see him too in his PC guises, and wish him luck regardless.

These two have been not only productive in their time, but more than that contributed a great deal to general site culture and brought interesting perspectives to discussions.

If you have an interest in volunteering, don't hesitate to reach out to a Prophet you know well in order to get a recommendation for either wiki-worker or peer reviewer. We're always looking for new volunteers.

But for now we say 'See you later' to Vulpes and Tempest.

Hello all, couple of announcements.

First, a question that has often been asked is how renown should or ought to impact the play experience of a player character. Now we have an answer, thanks to the wonderful work of Fate at defining each tier of renown!

Primer to Roleplaying Renown

Also, we've added some detail to the hunting skill, specifically the tiers to make it clearer how well you can expect to do at a given level. As ever, it's possible to play skills as less effective than your current level. That's all down to player preference. This will just ensure we know the upper limits of what our pcs should be capable of in the given skill.

Hunting Skill

As ever, any questions about any of this, please direct to the Q & A Forum. Thanks!

Re: News & New Features!

The Prime Histrionics
Announcements everywhere! Syroa may have been felled during Ruin's Dawn, but her influence on Idalos isn't gone. Her Champions remain and will be active. Meet The Prime Histrionics!

These five Champions of Syroa will be around causing trouble. If you want to find them manually on the wiki, they're listed as one of Syroa's Notable creations. Other Immortals will be getting Champion groups down the road as well, but we'll get to them in due time. For now, there are other projects in the pipeline, so look forward to more news hopefully soon.
