      A Personal Note

      It has been brought to my attention that there has been a serious breakdown of communication between staff and players, and even between the staff itself. There have been many misunderstandings and inconveniences due to this and I wish to let the players know that I plan on rectifying this situation. In the very near future, I plan on bringing on a few new staff members (GMs and SGs alike) so I may be contacting some of you in the near future. I plan on trying to hold more frequent meetings with the staff to try and avoid this situation in the future.

      Also, on a bit more personal level, it seems some players feel that I was showing favoritism to certain players. I can do nothing more than promise you that this is NOT the case. In the 11 years I have been a GM for TEC I have prided myself in treating each player fairly, regardless of my or any of my staff members’ personal feelings towards them. As some of you may have noticed, some steps have been taken into removing SOME of what has caused these accusations.

      I would like to thank all of you that have been patient and understanding in this time, and reassure those of you that have not that I am actively formulating a plan to alleviate these issues in the future.

        Four new staff members will be joining our ranks this weekend . Among the new staff we have two new SG (Quadrigarius and Beleren) and two new GM coders (Scolve and Pranzor). Please help us in making them feel welcome and try not to scare them off as they begin their journey in helping us make your gaming experience more enjoyable.

          The ability to purchase a domus in the game will be available next weekend via the Play > Spend StoryPoints menu in the Welcome Area. Quantity is limited so purchases will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Don’t fret if you miss out on this initial release, there will be more to come! The cost of this purchase will be 500 StoryPoints and will be available to paid subscribers only. When a purchase is made in this manner, you will receive a golden ticket and will need to send in an @request to redeem it for the character you wish to receive the domus. These tickets are able to be “gifted” to friends, if you’re the generous sort and wish to purchase one for a friend.

          The available domii are pre-built, so choosing a location is not an option. Until further notice, any domus purchased in this manner will be located in the Sandbar district.

          We have made an effort to make all the domii purchased in this fashion very similar so everyone will be getting equal value for their StoryPoints. The Room Makeover option of Role-Point expenditures can be used to remodel these domii. In Game cost will be dependent on the extent of remodeling and IC materials required.

            The ability to purchase a domus for your character IG will be enabled Saturday morning. We don't want to give a specific time which may give some an unfair advantage in purchasing some of the limited stock this go-around. This option is accessed via the PLAY command in the Welcome Area under the SPEND STORYPOINTS menu.

              Be advised: The game will be restarted after today's afternoon backup (and will be restarted using data from that backup), for routine maintenance. This will cause a revert of a just few minutes.

              Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Creativity is putting tomatoes in a fruit salad to make mango salsa. Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is actually a smoothie. Common Sense is knowing that no, ketchup is not a smoothie.

                  Seneda's Lottery has now opened!
                  The lottery office is located a pace west of the main bank counter.


                  Tickets cost one talent each and are withdrawn from your Seneda's bank account. Seneda's takes a 50% administration fee for running the lottery.
                  The first drawing has had an additional prize added to it to celebrate the opening.
                  Drawings occur on the first day of every full month. If you have a winning ticket, you have until the next drawing to turn in your ticket. Unclaimed winnings will roll forward into the next drawing.

                  To check your ticket, you can OFFER it to the lottery clerk after the drawing has occurred.
                  You can ask the clerk for the following information:
                  How the LOTTERY works.
                  What the current PRIZE is.
                  What ticket number WON the latest drawing.
                  Or simply to BUY a ticket.

                  You can READ the ticket number off of your ticket as well.

                    As an accomodation for illiterate characters, lottery tickets will display the same text when you LOOK at them as when you READ them, since the text is more of a description already anyway.

                          (4/6/15) After this afternoon's Backup, the game will be taken down for maintenance for approx 10-30 minutes before being brought back online. Please plan accordingly.

                          {EDIT} Game is back up, and everything looks good.

                          Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Creativity is putting tomatoes in a fruit salad to make mango salsa. Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is actually a smoothie. Common Sense is knowing that no, ketchup is not a smoothie.

                            Belhrad, Gaedene Weaponsmith and brother of Farhad, has opened his shop north of Bronze Lane.

                            One pace north, then one pace east from Apula's, Belhrad will have a number of unique and rare items for sale, with stock rotating on a random, but regular, basis.

                                Custom Item Reminder

                                Since this has come up more frequently recently, I figured it was time to remind everyone about the @CUSTOM command. Be sure to use this command on all your custom items.

                                There are catches in place to attempt to prevent the system from destroying (deleting forever) certain items. Flagging an item as custom using the @CUSTOM command is one way to make sure the system never just destroys an item automatically during the clean-up process.

                                Keep in mind that although an item may be saved from being destroyed, we won't just give it back if it was, for example, legitimately stolen from your character by some creature or PC in the the game. In a case such as that, we can still save the item and reintroduce it back into the gameworld which would give the character it was obtained from a "chance" to get it back.
