black and blue seeds

We continue from part one, as the chat continues to go downhill...

[Zone] Ezekiel Ravenshield@bush1d0: is there a way to zoom the camera lol ??
[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: by praying to the dev gods to add it, otherwise, sadly, no....
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: yeah, i don't think there a FOV option
[Zone] tIP the scales@philskill1: there is...
[Zone] Mabondal@tjlongshot: type /gfxsetdefaultfov


Wau. Learn a new thing every chat. Well, not every chat. Some chats, though.

[Zone] Moob@niko9er: see, say you don't know something and people correct you
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: don't ask questions in zone
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: waste of time
[Zone] Mabondal@tjlongshot: please use google before asking in zone


I understand what you're saying here, I do, and granted, there's a lot of game information for any of the games we play online. But...if I'm asking where a certain vendor is, or how to get into a certain place, why am I going to Google first? They may not know, or may not be accurate.

Of course, by the same extension, this is Zone chat. They may not know, or be accurate.

[Zone] Moob@niko9er: lol
[Zone] tIP the scales@philskill1: but we answerd it....
[Zone] Mabondal@tjlongshot: common courtesy
[Zone] Lil ShinShank@cerialshank: Mab, stfu
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: i didn't ask i just said no
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: and you had to correct :P


It is the way of our people.

[Zone] Lil ShinShank@cerialshank: Anyone can ask anything whenever they want. Its the ZONE. Its there to talk to eachother and get help if you need it.
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: Where do your face babies come from?


I....I don't understand. What are face babies?

[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: Honestly if you want to talk talk. Don't let people shame you. The only stupid question is the one you don't ask.
[Zone] Lorea@Venivididormii: is this the danger zone?
[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: And no is forced to answer
[Zone] Nine@drartwhodent: but, please do *read* the tooltips and quest text b4 asking stuff, a lot is answered there


That's fair too, actually. A lot of the problems people run into in all online games trace back to not wanting to read the box text for quests and other events.

[Zone] Meatshield@xzarcastic: ASK WHAT EVER QUESTIONS YOU HAVE CAUSE HATERS ARE GAOING TO BE HATERS AND THUS tard monkeys . :p
[Zone] Mabondal@tjlongshot: i heard msgs are bad for your health


If they're from gold spammers, that's right.

[Zone] Moob@niko9er: Rose, how much gold ish my time worth to you
[Zone] Eshadowone@eshadowone: opinion varies from person to person, so with sense of humor.
[Zone] Eshadowone@eshadowone: sarcasm maybe funny to some but insulting to others
[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: opinions are like a**holes, everyone's got one, and more times than not theyre full of sh**....


*sighs*

[Zone] Fauxlivia@zantosa1881: questions are awesome, spam I could do without

Always.

[Zone] Moob@niko9er: hey thanks, haven't heard that 208723498274982374 times since the 80s
[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: this zonechat was funner yesterday with the pickup lines
[Zone] Goosgoos Salad@goosgoos: you make that up yourself?
[Zone] Greype Kneehigh@gimpocalypse: and it doesn't help that they broke the Sarcasm font... and won't fix it


There was a sarcasm font?

[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: never underestimate the 80s...
[Zone] Anyallah Moonshadow@thirdlevelrogue: Heh, save the city by storming the bridge and get some dirty pants and shirt for a reward. Oh boy...


No, no, that's actually the upgrade. First, your ship is attacked by a Dracolich outside of Neverwinter and you crash on the beach. For some mysterious, only-known-to-the-GMs reason, you were stripped down to just sleep attire before the attack. You're told--by Private Wilfred, the first time you meet him--to dig through some crates that have washed ashore. You end up finding (and hopefully equipping) a worn or broken weapon of your class, and some rags that barely cover you (and provide zero in-game defense). Then off you're sent to fight skeletons, zombies, and worse before ending up at the Sleeping Dragon Bridge, where, after the evil Valindra kills Private Wilfred very offhandedly, you fight your way through all obstacles and end up in Protectors' Enclave, the main neutral zone in Neverwinter.

And when you finally track down the man you're supposed to talk to about getting outfitted, Sergeant Knox, he sends you over to a man with a small fire built on the city cobbles, a tripod and cauldron set over it (one would assume food, but as we never see him eat, maybe it's leather bleach, or wood glue, or something), and he says oh sure, just rummage around in those chests over there, and thanks for saving the city.

Your 'reward' for all this? A basic set of clothing that's barely protective at all, suited to your class, and--even worse--what looks for all the world like a tunic and trews in faded, ill-fitting burlap and leather, to 'wear around town'. Not on your life, son, those are disturbingly ugly, and they look infested with bugs, and these are supposed to be what we wear when we're not in full armor??

Because seriously, this is how we're enticed into the game. Look awesome! Get incredible armor! Be stylish and badass! But what we actually get, when first starting out, is closer to mended scraps passed down from people who likely died in them.

I understand why--in a world of plentiful change and exciting buyable items, the admins are still trying to create an initial impression of scarcity--that Neverwinter is still a city under attack, by vastly more powerful (and better equipped) sources. It sort of works, if only to convince every player who starts out to lay cash down immediately for better gear, but I think the main intent got lost in the shuffle.

[Zone] Ponyo@ponrazzle: wow
[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: Show me potato salad!!!
[Zone] Ra3nDr0pS@lahollo: i wash my gear in the blood of mine enemies
[Zone] Kaylee Krankenwagen@abell39: I would hope my chars find time to wash their clothes while I'm logged out.
[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: technically our characters are homeless
[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: we saved neverwinter, but don't even have a studio apt to live in
[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: yeah we need some player housing, or at least a decent pub!
[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: you can't even push a button to get back to protectors enclave
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: hookers. we need hookers.


WHY? Though technically, they do exist, it's just not possible to...erm..."interact" with them. In fact, one of the most luminously beautiful builds in the game is the Moonstone Mask, where courtesans of all races and genders live in a mansion atop a floating island, hovering over Protectors' Enclave. The Moonstone Mask is also the home (unsurprisingly) of much of the actual player-based roleplay in the game, considering it is equal parts tavern, dance party, quest anchor and multiroomed entertainment venue.

But I won't lie, Neverwinter lacking player homes is a (small) disappointment.

[Zone] Xatmo@xatmo99: player housing = make a house in foundry
[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: i hang out at the pub, but every time i fall asleep i wake up with a drunken dwarf spooning me....
[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: We really are homeless
[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: Neverember told me the other day: thanks hero for saving us again. now get out of my throneroom, stinky bum
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: who needs a bed when you have hookers.
[Zone] Moob@niko9er: you just pile their dead bodies up


Wau. Why did I not ban this idiot before now? Banned the next time I go in.

[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: in fact, forget about the pub and tha blackjack
[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: The Driftwood Tavern!
[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: what hookers. No one told me about any hookers
[Zone] Galt@s0rc3r0r: hookers! where?


Moonstone Mask. Seriously, people, keep up.

[Zone] Roujin@NighthawkICH: awe screw the whole thing [Zone] Nobu@noburitsu: HOW DO U MOUNT A HORSE
[Zone] Ra3nDr0pS@lahollo: from behind?
[Zone] NZkiwi@gomjaz: not like a hocker


Um...

[Zone] Greype Kneehigh@gimpocalypse: from behind?
[Zone] Nalik@nalikk: 6, after you equip it


Thank you for actually providing a real answer!

[Zone] Haddock@haddock000: depends on preference
[Zone] Greype Kneehigh@gimpocalypse: never mount it from the front
[Zone] Ra3nDr0pS@lahollo: wtb slightly used dead hookers

[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: If you are not making a TV show, why do you need dead hookers
[Zone] Mika Hawklight@miscdebris1: Do people seriously not know to keep the adds off the healer?


Nope. Not ever, not at all.

[Zone] Ra3nDr0pS@lahollo: slightly used dad hookers are good for pron

[Zone] Moob@niko9er: they also make great fertilizer

Dads, or...DEAR GODS NEVER MIND!

[Zone] Eliza Urthadar@naddasleepy: You prefer them dead. Sounds like a Kermit moment to me.
[Zone] Galt@s0rc3r0r: that's kinda what's goin down here...
[Zone] Ra3nDr0pS@lahollo: yeah plenty of lonely housewives like em ded and slightly used

This whole conversation is gross. Done.
