It's the "Argh! Rain of Gold Coins!" face-pull that got me. Hmm. Wonder if Her Ladyship could be convinced to dress like the bint in the vid? Oh the possibilities...

PP:  Disney just bought Marvel.  Say goodbye to wonderfully bloody comics, I'm thinking.  Why the heck would Disney need to buy Marvel to begin with?

Mother of Chaos, I thought it was a wind up when a mate posted a link to the article on Live Journal. I mean it *might* still be a hoax. I bloody *hope* it's a hoax. I mean this is just plain WRONG.

It's the patching up that's a bitch. Oh and Vagabond Coats (from Violent Vagabonds in the Abandoned Subway) make good back armour until about Level 30. Wear it instead of the Small Backpack until your Adventuring is high enough to start wearing a Large Backpack. It takes 10 of Strength but it helps when you're getting shot in the back.

So do you want to date my avatar?

AP: my father finishing rebuilding the bathroom.
AP2: being online again.
AP3: my girlfriend realising that, as she rents from a housing association, she has enough points to move into a new build place that's handier for the shops, nearer a bus stop, far away from the screaming brats in the nursery over the fence at the bottom of her current garden and doing so will mean we don't have to decorate the place.
AP4: Ensouls directing me to the pdf of Chesterton's "The Man Who Was Thursday" last time I was about (and yes, it's an epic book).
AP5: The charity shops within shambling distance of my flat. There are a lot of SF, Fantasy and Gothic Horror fans in the area and they've flooded the market with good books so I can pick 'em up for half a quid a throw. Couple of weeks back I got the "Q>I> Book of General Ignorance" for 2. Brilliant.

TIL all about The Diablo Swing Orchestra.
You've heard of Pirate Metal, you've heard of Zombie Punk, now enjoy Swing Metal!

How long until Jasper a.k.a. Snarky Gasmask Guy gets ahold of the Red Button of Pain/ clones one of his own? Place yer bets!

So what if England gets a Bank Holiday and Scotland doesn't? We still get January 2nd off and they don't. Know which one I'd rather have/need.

I know, I know, double posting but this doesn't fit with the above startup guide. If you do play tell us who (and where) you are. Such as:

NAME: Opusfluke
CHARACTER: Adventurer
WEAPON: 2 times One-Hand Edged
LOCATION: Atlantean Server (Rubi-Ka 1)

And another thing- take a teleporter to Newland Desert and the Trading Post. SE of there you'll find the Bronto Oasis, which is good hunting until about Level 30 (watch out for the bvig glowing one though: not only has she got double the hit points but can do extra chemical/electrical damage). Near the Trading Post is the entrance to Rhinoman Valley, which is good for more advanced hunters though be cautious or you'll have dozens of Red Level (i.e. do not fuck with) Rhinomen chasing you back to the Trading Post though there are three NPC guards to cover your back while you get to safety.

K, here goes.
*deep breath*
Anarchy Online is a free SF MMO. Go get the client and download the pdf of the manual from the site. Flick through the manual while patching up. Trust me on this, it'll give you vital info on species and careers and how to modify the chat interface as well as giving you something to do while patching up.

 Leave off picking a side and stay Neutral as Neutrals can go anywhere. Once you chose to be Omni-Tek or Clans you can switch sides (with penalties) but can never again be a Neutral. And don't worry about getting shoulder pads as once you leave the Space Port (a.k.a. "Noob Island") there's a mission in Newland City to deliver paperwork to the Bronto Burger stand- do this twice and you get two Intelligent Kevlar Shoulder Pads.

 When you enter the abandoned subways take note of the adverts just inside the entrance. These are clues. First up is the "Dovve" ad. So open your Planet Map, click the options icon and select "Dovve" from the options. This gives you the Dovve Player's Map: zoom out and you have routes for all the whoom-pahs (teleporters), zoom in and you can see Grid exit points, places of interest, even where the Political (Player v. Player) Zones are.

 Helpbot. This uses chat commands to do various things including the command
/tell Helpbot whois PLAYER NAME
to get the full stats on a player. Use the chat command
/tell Helpbot help
to see the full list.

If you fancy a fight without getting killed (just to see how cool that shiny new weapon actually is) try duelling. Target the player and then type the command
(Note that the initial full stop is essential) and your opponent gets a Y/N choice. If they agree you get a five second countdown before unleashing hell. You can't kill each other, just nearly kill each other.

And at the last- bored of the music? May I recommend Gridstream Productions, Rubi-Ka's first dedicated radio station? Play it through Winamp or use Gridstream Productions' own client (it's about 1Mb).  As with Helpbot, there's chat commands to interact with the station (playlists, what's playing now, a Magic 8 Ball thiungummy) all via Gridbot. Use
/tell Gridbot help
for the full list.

That's about it. Though bare in mind this game is 18+ so be prepared for violence, swearing, drug references, barely dressed people/things and a lot of stuff on the Gridcast you don't get on normal radio (""Zombie Prostitute" by Voltaire was a memorable song from my last listening stint.) Oh yes, and it's FREE. Stick that in your Warcrack pipe and smoke it.

PP: being given directions by Mcninja. Coffee and nicotine are supposed to improve thought processes. I am so tonka'd.
1108  General Discussion / General Discussion / Re: PP: Not having a Pet Peeves thread. on: August 31, 2009, 09:25:21 am
PP: No "What Are You Currently Reading?" thread for me to post on (the charity shops near my flat are scoring some good donations and as they're swamped I'm loading up on hefty tomes for 50p a time). No gaming discussion area and I've been planning a quick hints 'n; tips and character contact info thread for Anarchy Online. And then there's the flaming I missed. This used to be a civilised all-commers brawling pit.

Oh ffs!!! Okay, own up! Who broke the forum? I leave you people for five weeks and  come back to a wasteland not of my making!
But seriously: Dodom, please don't leave us. We need you and the few of us (I include myself here as I hope I'm not bad-nasty but only twisted-nasty-and-you-know-I-can-be-nice-IRL in these parts) who don't act like kids in a playground to raise the tone of this joint.
*reads the "this" link*
Oh dear. I was going to do a joke about not being able to leave you lot alone for a few weeks without you breaking things but given the circumstances I won't. This used to be such a *nice* place to play in as well. At this rate the TZH Forum might go the way of chivalry, climbing trees and good Sf on the telly i.e. permanently extinct.
