Re: Mods to Nyss Script

I've removed the instructions on how to unlock the map. Here's a little background: The mapper in Nyy's client is a great feature and we're glad that it's available to new and existing players. However, we'd like to keep some mystery for new and old players alike that haven't been to every zone yet....

Re: Donate?

Re: Shevarash ok?

I'm good, thanks for checking.

Some of that time was spent working on something for the MUD that isn't quite ready yet, but there was also a lot of real life in there getting in the way. Things are settling down now, and I have some fixes in progress that will hit the MUD soon.

They can be already, but most are intentionally setup to only recharge when worn, to prevent the "big bag of unlimited proc items" effect. Are there particular items that you think are useless because of this that should be reconsidered?
