Hey folks,

 

Thanks to Monkey wiggling through a hole in the system (that I kind of left open by testing what I was doing), I have turned on the Inventory system early.

 

You may have noticed that you have accrued Gold Pieces which are listed in your Profile and  listed when you post next to the Karma buttons.

 

You earn Gold Pieces by posting to the site; starting new topics, replying to topics and having others reply to topics that you start. Certain sections of the forum will earn more or less Gold.

 

You can also earn and lose Gold by using the Karma system. If you vote someone up or down you will earn Gold. If you are voted up you will earn Gold. If you are voted down you will lose gold.

 

You can use the Gold you earn to purchase items from the Inventory link at the top. I have not managed to complete adding everything I intended before The Monkey Thief snuck in but I have decided to open it up to everyone now and let you have at it. Items in the various stores will restock at different rates and at the moment none of the weapon items do anything other than add colour to your avatar when you post (but I guess they could in incorporated into forum games in the future).

 

There are a few items that will allow you to do things that most of you can't currently do (like pin topics or steal Gold Pieces from other users). Please don't be a douchebag with these :) The admins can undo anything that seems stupid and if you are all very good I will add more things for you to do later as I work through the stuff...

 

There may also be plans to run a GP lottery as well as the possibility for investing GP in various ventures but for now we just have items to play with.

 

Let me know what you think and let me know if you spot any issues.

Ooooh - and I forgot to mention that Patrons earn twice as many points for everything because they are awesome...

I think I need some traps or a horde dragon to protect my modest gold pile from Rogues and such.

I guess I need to get me some items - Monkey looks like a king of awesome with all those things he has that actually do something :)

 

Anyone else given this a try?

Well I managed to sneak in through the back door Monkey pointed out and snagged me a nifty cane! I think I need a hireling to follow me around though. Perhaps a bard to sing my praises... or make some up.

Hey Hal, how about adding some kinda tokens that people could use to signify their allegiance to one or more of the gaming groups? Make 'em reasonably cheap, like the weapons, so people can afford to buy one of each, if they so choose. For example:

This could be done and is a good idea. It may end up being so...

On a related note: Rather than, say, hiring a nameless Unscrupulous Bard or Cunning Rogue, how about giving people a chance to hire Feylin Hilltopple, or Gillaran the Nimbic, or Max Jollity, or Kasnas, or RJÄGJÜJÄR HJËLSTJRÜM themselves? Or would that be too over-powered? ;)

Another solid idea Monkey. I may make those adjustments as well :)

Figures that I am poor.  I picked up a bit of offensive capability.  Well weaponry.  I am already offensive at times I am told.

Ah! Thanks for reminding me.

Hal, we're gonna need a Girdle of Uploading Old Mortifying Audio of Danny Singing Show Tunes, as well. ;)

Ooh! Ooh! How about badges and tokens for some of the major campaigns? That way, people can boast about having listened to the entire Warlords & Accordions, or WLD, and so on. Much like @Daniel would have wanted (except totally not the way he wanted it). ;)

Hey @Pencil-Monkey and other Site Artist folks :)

 

I love the idea of group affiliation badges and stuff like you suggested :) Would you guys like to make up a set of badges that are consistent looking and nicely cohesive so I can use them for all the groups in the site? :)

 

I have been using images at 48 x 48 which makes it a little bit of a challenge and they are reduced even further when they are displayed on the side bar of the forums.

 

What say you all?

A few quickies:

OOTAK (Hopefully, @Twyst won't be too upset by the fact that all the fine detail disappears at such a degree of miniaturization, also: it's been colorized. The blue tone seems to be an OOTAK favorite, though.) :)

*Well, self-awarded, anyway.
