       Game Update #-24 sequence (file #39)

       Admin Notes: None

         From Dorhak: [Re: Actions]
           Well, Dorhak isn't a magic user, so I don't really have
           that much of an opinion.  I think I'll abstain on this vote.
         GM: Ack. That's fine but you are allowed a vote I mean even Pyan
             voted. :)

         From Mae: [Re: Actions]
           Sorry all, if allowed, I'll return.  Please don't kill Mae.
           I know she's just loveable.
         GM: Ack.  Welcome back.

         From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
           Now that Kiet is back home, he hopes to have a ...

           "We spoke in the past about perhaps trading some NMI....
         GM: Ack.  This post was made the rest was done in email
             so not posted here.  The thread of NMI trading.

         From Wout: [Re: Actions[
           Welcome back. As if Mae never left.
         GM: Ack.

         From Arawn: [Re: Mae's Return]
           Welcome back and no worries. Arawn has a place in the
           works still for Sivas (it was really made for you, lol,
           as Arawn is almost never in Sivas:) so Mae could always
           have a good excuse to rejoin the party there whenever:)
         GM: Ack. I went back to his original plan to stay at brothels.
             Since I figured you already started IBT would be hard to
             restart.  But can still get a place for next time.

         From Dorhak: [Re: Actions]
           Wow!  That was a fun read.  Thanks Scott!!!

           That looks like a lot of work.

           +1 CEL.  Yessssss!
         GM: Ack. Yep  A lot of work.  It was fun.  Glad you liked it.
             Congrats on CEL.

         From David: [Re: Mae's IBT]
           I read this and thought that Fremea would have locked all the
           doors, just to watch people get locked out of their houses.
           She would think that was hilarious!
         GM: Ack. Well being caught would've been bad for her. :)

         From Mae: [Re" Revised IBT]
           While they both took a break, Master Sanis and...
         GM: Ack. Interesting edits.  Thanks.

         From Mae: [Re: Dog lover?]
           As for being a dog person, Mae hasn't had the best of luck
           with dogs in the city during her 4 months of IBT.
         GM: Ack. Yep 2 encounters with bad dogs.  OR are they just
             sessing what Mae is? hmmm...

         From David: [Re: Actions]
           I'm sure she is more of a dog-person...??
         GM: Ack. :)
       [New Stuff]

           [Sivas, Marentia]
           [Cholan's Tavern]

             Now that Kiet is back home, he hopes to have a little time
           to haggle about NMI with Arawn.

             "We spoke in the past about perhaps trading some NMI
           enhancement secrets.  I have four, if you are interested.
           Amaranth, Fern Seeds, Rowan, and Pigeon Stones.  I have these
           written in Katai, for now.  Would these be useful to you?
           Would you have some to give in trade?"

           Actions? Comments?

           Next Update....Soon..

           GM: Still not enough votes yet.  From chart below we are half
               done with IBTs.  The two big ones Arawn/Z are soon.  Fremea
               and Mournath should be easy.  Now to start Kiet's this week.

               Just wanted to catch up on posts and do a quick update.
               Due to issues Kiet's IBT is on hold to redo a few things.
               So at this point I have no IBT to work on.  Next one
               that comes in will be done.  I'm off 4 days next week
               so good time. Many have not started theirs yet?

               Just some clarifications on IBT.  Visual spells and
               recasting.  As well as pre-ibt.

               Pre-IBT: Many like John and even Mae have sent email
                 on things they have to clarify.  This is fine.  It
                 is good to know before IBT is processed.  So for
                 example if you don't know how long X needs to be
                 crafted or if chances of finding NMI Y then ask.  I
                 can give some of those details as best I can.  In the
                 end I don't have all the answers because events do
                 change.  The variables change like where you may be
                 in Sivas or some barbarian wilderness.  Stuff like that.
                 So if you are unsure on a procedure or game mechanic
                 please ask now.

               Visuals: In my universe magic has SOME visual cues.  But
                 not all.  For obvious reasons they should not all have
                 cues.  For example Entropy is such a chaotic random
                 spell giving it a cue is difficult.  While many do have
                 cues.  We've seen how I do healing with green cues.
                 As a MU one may not know a spell fails.  But even if
                 no cues are given there are ways to figure it out.
                 Luck spell you can roll some dice and see if odds
                 change.  Knowledge you feel new info.  And so on.
                 For IBT purposes one can use Detection, Divination (though
                 if no visual cues kind of hard), mana sensing and a few
                 other tricks to determine failure.  But common sense can
                 help out as well.  If you add appearance to a amulet
                 and don it and don't see change in mirror.  Well maybe
                 the spell failed. :)  In a table game this would be the
                 case as well.  One should assume spells will fail.  That
                 is a given.  it is how you plan for it that is critical.
                 I suppose I could sit and list what spells have visual
                 cues for the 500 or so spells.  That would be kind of
                 interesting task.  But would I remember that same cue later
                 on months later? :)

                Votes: 1- Ignore Rule
                       2- Use rule with NMI exception
                       3- 3 Items 4- 4 items

                I do agree there is a NMI exception and I found it
                in Richard's (the game's author) comments way back in
                the '90s.  Sadly no majority unless count Unali's vote
                as 2.  So will see if any others come in.  But looks like
                rule remains as is.
