A New Subforum: Witchcraft

Postby TotalyMeow » Thu May 28, 2015 7:00 am

We have a little problem with Witchcraft in that we don't want to disseminate the information about it too widely, but at the same time, we need to properly bug test the mechanic. So, I've created a new forum for the discussion of Witchcraft (as suggested by Dallane); this forum will be visible only to witches. It will be used for Witchcraft Bug Reporting and Witchcraft Ideas. Trolling will not be allowed.

The difficult part will be in knowing who is a witch and who is faking. John can't easily parse the list of server witches to give to me, and I don't have access to that information. So, if you wish to be in the forum, you'll have to apply to be in it and offer some proof of being a witch. Dallane has volunteered to be in charge of testing. You may do one of two things: Either meet an alt of Dallane's near a darkness landmark and show that you are a friend to the rats, or let him see you curse an alt of yours in town. If Dallane scares you, you may also contact me for the test, but understand that you'll probably have a longer wait.

I'm giving the forum user-based permissions rather than group-based. Meaning there will not be a forum 'witch' group and therefore your identity will be secure if you want it to be. However, you may apply with an alt forum account if you want to be extra careful.

Does this mean you're going to delete Wishy's books from in-game or delete posts pertaining to witchcraft from the normal forum?

The bigger problem would probably be that people may not have their witch on their forum account.

Stahp trying to make me do werk!

On a serious note though, I could get a list of players who have learned sympathetic magic easily enough. Finding out exactly which forum account they post on, if their witch has died, and of course how often to run said search to 'pick up' new witches would be less than ideal from a maintenance perspective.

Am I a public enough witch to not need a test? If not, i'll just wait to catch someone online that is able to test me :)
I have neither the crayons nor the time to explain it to you.

Kandarim confirmed will break any new witchcraft content in the first day, so excellent candidate! As for me, I've given up those wicked ways as I would probably mess up again and get myself stabbed in the face while offline xD
