     Scissors of Atropos
Prize:
     a pair of Atroposian scissors
Current bid:
     1 credits.
Description:
     These curious scissors allow you to strike a bargain with

     a misty Censer of the Clouds
Current bid:
     1 credits.

     Lighting this censer will temporarily change the
     environment to clouds (in the same manner as a Aeromancer

     recovery for condensating the environment will be cut by .5
     seconds. Costs 1p to activate.
************************************************************************

     environment. In the hands of a Crow Druid, equilibrium recovery
     for changing the environment to wyrden woods will be cut by .5
     seconds. Costs 1p to activate.
************************************************************************

     Transplanar Torus
Prize:
     a transplanar torus
Current bid:

     the administration and are subject to certain restrictions.

     Drums of Kiakoda
Prize:
     the Drums of Kiakoda
Current bid:
     1 credits.
Description:
     Beating upon these drums causes the natural way of things
     to re-exert itself where resistance is not too great; any
     locations in the local area which have had false terrains
     imposed upon them (by mages and druids), but which are not
     melded, will revert to normal (as if truegrounded). This feat
     takes sixty seconds to climax, during which you can do nothing,
     and at which point you will expend 10 power. You cannot beat
     these drums in territory to which you are enemied, and everyone
     in the local area will hear when you start to beat.

    Does the jar work on influenced denizens for the purposes of a revolt?

    How much damage does the feedback field do?

    Custom deathsight.

    I doubt I'd win that now after getting the ur'stone but whoever takes it PLEASE write something decently visceral (and be active enough to use it >.>)

    1) Yes, it will work in revolts.

    2) A similar amount to the recharging field: 2.5% - 5.0%

    If we already have the ability of creating the manse in glamours, would the wand of relocation allow us to create the manse for longer by any chance? Or for a reduced cost?

  • KiradaweaKiradawea Member Posts: 1,750 Transcendent
    Please ensure that the Mist isn't useable on denizens in a revolt. Being able to negate someones victory on an important named denizen is far too much.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
  • SsalissSsaliss Member Posts: 3,575 Transcendent
    Since it was just brought up in a clan... Do the mists stack? I.e. can you buy all three and reset three mobs (or the same mob three times) per hour?

    Because many artifacts don't stack, so I figured it was better to ask and be certain.

  • IosaiIosai Member, Gods Posts: 201 Divine
    Sure, they stack, each mist gets one use.

    Is there some bug with the auctions, because I'm seeing several items with a bid of 1, I bid on something and it instantly climbed to 305?
    [BANNERCODE]
  • AlbanAlban Member Posts: 93 Apprentice
    I've never bid on an auction, but that doesn't sound like a bug.

    If someone has entered a max bid of 305, it should bid the minimum bet, then if you bet 304 or whatever it should automatically bid 305 on their behalf.

    That means an earlier bid was at 300, which means that's the most that person would pay. If you bid over 300, it will make your bid at (last bid) + 5 credits.
    Everiine said: The reason population is low isn't because there are too many orgs. It's because so many facets of the game are outright broken and protected by those who benefit from it being that way. An overabundance of gimmicks (including game-breaking ones), artifacts that destroy any concept of balance, blatant pay-to-win features, and an obsession with convenience that makes few things actually worthwhile all contribute to the game's sad decline.
  • TurnusTurnus The Big Bad Wolf Member Posts: 581 Transcendent
    Those Lirangshan Mists sound yeah... not digging them as an artie for revolts.

    Yay, they used another of my ideas!

    *cuff* Terrible idea is terrible then. It creates much too massive an advantage to those who get the mist. The ability to freely influence someone you already should have lost at your advantage means that you essentially get a free villager per round per mist.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
  • ThulThul Member Posts: 568 Fabled
    Hey, I specifically put it in the "game-imbalancing addition" entry. It was in there with the jars that let you make someone paranoid and the Music for Everyone Belt.
  • TurnusTurnus The Big Bad Wolf Member Posts: 581 Transcendent
    It strikes me as an easy extra-win on the village leader whenever you have the advantage there. Potentially multiple extra grabs of the village leader depending on how many per a given side have the artie.

    I know. Just felt like cuffing someone. Really though, the mist will have a use outside of revolts. Someone making an important quest mob paranoid, or influencing it in general when it needs be influenced. It really doesn't need to be useable within revolts.

    Question about the shields, if they are razed, do they still give health or retaliate in that one instance?
