Subject: A Fun Game


Last evening, we decided to play a spur of the moment game on Discord. The following is the result of that game.


Haliste: We're gonna play a game. Head's up to whomever is actively watching and paying attention in here. So here's the deal. You get to ask questions in here about the upcoming June event, and I'll answer them. However...ONE question at a time. You will have to show restraint! If you toss out two questions before the first has been answered, the game is over. So you guys need to figure out who's gonna ask questions or work out amongst yourselves that no one is gonna ask questions over another person unless it has been answered.

These were the rules. Someone took notice that a player was typing a question!

>Weasel: Go, Cowboy. You're typing!
>Cowboy: Will these mounts be usable outside the event?
>Sparky: Are we going to have mounts outside the event?

And that was it. The game was over before it began.

So I decided to show some mercy and let the game proceed with different rules. Now, it was a 5 minute rule. And the timer started at 8:25. I failed a little bit and went slightly beyond that. But, here are the questions and answers for those who don't frequent Discord.

Q: Whata kind of mounts?
A: Horses.

Q: (From the big fail)
A: Mounts can be used outside of the event.

Q: How is the weight reduction stuff going to work, certs for existing containers, new containers?
A: Weight reduction is set to work on any container. I am not sure about ones that have already received weight reduction through other means (ie: Duskruin or another script)

Q: Can they hold things?
A: Only the inventory they can wear, and they cannot wear containers.

Q: is there jousting?
A: The event will have jousting.

Q: is there going to be any summit academy customization stuff?
A: Yes on customizations.

Q: can we train them in jumping and/or dressage?
A: No training at this time.

Q: are they 1 per account?
A: No. If you want 10 mounts, have at it.

Q: Is there anything for fusion? What is sylinar doing at this event?
A: There is a story about Sylinar on the forums. He's been ousted.

Q: Does the guy replacing him do any work in fusion or enhancives?
A: Enhancives are moving to another event, as Summit Academy is being repurposed.

Q: Is my mount at risk from bandits or aoe
A: Your mount will never die completely, if it dies. If you obtain a mount, it's yours forever. Until you sell it off to someone else. You can also sell/trade horses.

Q: Any weighting happening at the event?
A: No weighting. WPS will be back at Duskruin.

Q: Will the mount verb work?
A: Yes.

Q: did you answer about what actions they could do including sitting on gnomes?
A: Actions? I'm leaving most of that up to discovery.

Q: I'm hoping the "if you get a horse" (I guess something I said earlier in the chat...) means if you want to get the currency needed less than there won't be enough to go around...
A: Mounts are not limited for the event or for players. If you want 10, go for it. If you want 1, great. If you don't want any, that's okay too.

Q: is 10 the max?
A: There is no max.

Q: I want a pony. Not a horse.
A: No ponies.

Q: Wait, can I fly? Pegasus or gryphons!
A: No flying mounts right now.

Q: Will mounts appear in your player description?
A: Yes.

Q: ...we never got an answer on either breeding or genders.
A: No breeding. Yes genders.

Q: Can I use my bow from horseback?
A: There is no combat on mounts.

Q: Are the boosts for the mounts or our characters?
A: Characters.

Q: Will the mounts provide some kind of mechanical benefit?
A: Mounts do not currently provide mechanical benefits.

Q: do we get to dress them up in pretty tack? blankets, legwraps, braid their manes and tails?
A: There are features for mounts. There are inventory items for mounts.

Q: can they swim?
A: No.

Q: ...will they follow you if you aren't riding one? er, yours.
A: No.

Q: Can I unlock the loresong of my horse?
A: Horses do not have loresongs.

Q: can anyone alter horse looks, or only through certain things?
A: Right now, horse alterations are limited.

Q: limited by person or venue?
A: those could very well be one in the same.

Q: Can plat get a new bonus where we all get altered horses?
A: Probably not.

Q: Can I feed my horse apples and or carrots?
A: Yes! Horses will eat specific things. And not eat other specific things. Discovery.

Q: Can my horse have a braided mane and ribbons in its tail?
A: Possibly...

Q: Can my horse have wings?
A: No.

Q: Can my horse have tentacles?
A: No.

Q: ...do mounts have saddlebags? Can they carry stuff around for you (other than their own tack)?
A: Mounts will not be able to wear containers at this time.

Q: i wonder if groups can mount the same horse
A: No. Horses will allow one person to ride them.

Q: different breeds of horses? draft horses, etc.
A: There are varieties, but your common mount is a horse. This is our release event, and there will be much more down the line.

Q: What non horse things can we look forward too at this event? Also if you are running around in the wilds and go back to town do you have to stop at the stable before you can go inside any buildings? Or can you dismount anywhere and not worry about it. Is there upkeep?
A: There are lots of non-horse things at this event. More information is coming.

Q: As a giantkin, am I required to obtain a much larger steed than the little people and thus, beholden to higher upkeep costs?
A: No.

Q: I know this is way after like the q&a but any more info on these boosts?
A: Not yet. RSN.

If I left anything out, forgive me. We've worked really hard to make this event special. We all hope you enjoy it.

1. Mounts are completely separate entities.
2. Mounts should not add to your encumbrance, but if you are at max item inventory, you may not be able to mount it.

Two quick updates:

You should no longer be dismounted when attacked, unless you receive damage. Most forms of attack are outright blocked from being initiated by the mounted player, but if you somehow manage to perform an attack, that will also dismount you. No more roltons dismounting you though, unless they manage to actually hit you.

Most objects that blocked the mounts before should now allow you to pass. This includes town gates (after you pay the fee), the footpath from the Landing to EN (after you search it out), the icy river, the rockslide, etc.

I'll just keep things in here to make it easier to follow.

* Mounting and Dismounting will no longer incur a roundtime.
* Horses can now ride to inside destinations, provided that destination is NOT in town.

A few more updates:

* The existing movement code was rewritten, which should mostly be invisible to you, but if you notice any issues, please post/BUG/BUGITEM it.
* If there are any locations outside of towns, specifically along paths between towns, that block mounts, please BUG the room or BUGITEM the specific obstacle (e.g. the river in "go river").
* You can now lead or be a member of groups while mounted.
* Mounted players can now make use of multi-movement, which has 2 parts and must be prefixed with "go":

1) You can specify 2 directions to move in one command. e.g. "go s se`

>go s se
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed south.
[Wehnimer's, Exterior]
As you stand next to the southwest corner of the Landing, you have an unobstructed view of the plain. Some distance away you can make out the vague figures of shepherdesses tending their flocks of Rolton -- sheep indigenous to the region. Further south the grassy expanse turns hilly, eventually terminating in stark mountains that line the horizon. You also see a wooden signpost.
Obvious paths: north, southeast, southwest
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed southeast.
[Wehnimer's, Exterior]
The dirt path bends around the southwest corner of the landing. Far to the east, you can see a thin blue line that must be the river. You also see a rolton skeleton, a yellow silk ribbon and a heap of splintered timbers and torn hide.
Obvious paths: east, northwest


2) You can specify up to 8 of the same direction to move in one command. e.g. "go w w w w w"

>go w w w w w
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
Dry grasses stretch out in a plain to the south of the path here. Amber fields of tall swaying grass wave hypnotically in the slight, steady breeze. The rustling hiss of the grasses in the breeze sets the mind at ease.
Obvious paths: east, west
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
The fields to the south of the path here change from amber to the east to green and lush to the west. The fields have no paths or roads leading into them, but occasionally, the tall grasses are crushed or swept to one side as if by a traveler or a large animal. You also see a small mound.
Obvious paths: east, west
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
The road continues to the east into a wide, flat area marked by fields of tall grasses. To the west, a small wooded area crosses the road, becoming more dense and lush far to the north. The road remains well defined, and wagon wheel ruts show regular use. You also see a rocky footpath leading up into the woods.
Obvious paths: east, west
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
The road travels through a very sparsely wooded area for a stretch here. The woods are not dense, and allow direct sunlight to touch the forest floor. This is either the beginning of a very young forest, or the end of a very old one.
Obvious paths: east, west
You ride a fiery-eyed nightmare steed west.
[Vornavis, West Road]
To the east, a small wooded area crosses the path, and vibrant green leaves cling to trees swaying in the breeze. The road slopes sharply downward for a stretch before turning toward the southwest. A clump of holly bushes to the north of the path here looks out of place.
Obvious paths: east, southwest

A normal creature won't get the opportunity to attack you when using multi-movement, but anything that could trigger when entering or exiting a room still applies (webs, ice patches, etc). Multi-movement will work for a group if all members have mounts. Non-mounted peasants are left behind. Multi-movement is a base feature of all mounts and is different from Fast Travel, which will be a separate unlock.

* Boothead shouldn't happen anymore. No need to summon twice to get your inventory in the right order.
* Unique mounts have been renamed to Uncommon to avoid confusion.

Subject: Mounts: Fast Travel


Mounts will have 2 separate unlocks for Fast Travel. Each unlock is tied to the character ("riding skill"), so if you have more than one mount, it works for all of them.

The first Fast Travel unlock is Town to Hunting Grounds. You will be able to use your mount from within town to instantly go to any number of hunting grounds for your local area. As an example (and this is purely an example, any or all the locations listed below are not guaranteed to be available in the end product), you will get a list of locations and be able to pick one of these while in the Landing:

Cavernhold, Main Hall (gnoll workers, gnoll thiefs, gnoll rangers, gnoll guards, gnoll priests)
Spider Temple, Entry Hall
Upper Trollfang (lesser orcs, cockatrices, forest trolls)
Graveyard, Crypt
Mine Road (manticores, lesser orcs, goblins, kobolds, thraks)
Mine (cave trolls, troglodytes, cave gnomes, cave nippers, greater spiders, cave worms, crystal golems)
Upper Trollfang, Glatoph (ice trolls, steel golems, snow crones, ice skeletons, fire guardians, ice trolls
firephantoms, frost giants)
Lysierian Hills, Valley (pumas, krolvin warriors, krolvin mercenaries, krolvin warfarers)
Monastery, Misty Chamber (monastic liches, spectral monks)
Kobold Village, Commons (kobolds, big ugly kobolds)
Darkstone, Outer Chamber (troll kings, harbingers)
Sea Caverns (goblins)
Wehntoph, Labyrinth (minotaurs)
Wehnimer's Sewer, Nexus (giant rats)
Castle Anwyn Gatehouse (carcerises, hornets, arch wights, moaning spirits)
Stronghold, Entry (stone giants, Illoke mystics, stone mastiffs, Illoke shamans, stone giants)

In most cases, the mount will not allow you to circumvent normal obstacles (skill and level checks), but can get you closer to the desired area than as if you had to walk all the way. A common exception to that rule is if you can teleport there with a gold ring, a mount will probably be able to take you there too. After your hunt, you can return to the same room, then Fast Travel back to town. You may use this type of Fast Travel with no cooldown.

The second type of Fast Travel will be Town to Town. Your mount will take you on a relatively short journey as you move from one town's stables to another. It will be similar to the caravan system that is used to travel from Solhaven to the Sanctum of Scales (but with no bandits). It will be quicker than walking and will only take a few minutes to go to most towns. This type of travel is taxing on your mount and may only be performed once per day.

Both unlocks will be available to purchase for 50,000 raikhen at each town's local stables once released in the near future.

[Erenad Courtyard]
Surrounded by a pale grey stone wall, the cobblestone courtyard of the carriage house fans out in semi-circular pattern with the focal point leading to a white paneled house. To the other side of the building is an archway that leads into the stable. Pots of blooming flowers are set about decorating the area with their bright colors.

Something suddenly shifts in the undergrowth near the trail forcing you to steer to the opposite side.

You ease the reins of your chestnut horse as you canter toward your destination.

[Gyldemar Road]
Worn away by rain and the underground action of continual water, the road has sunk to swamp level. At this point, though, it remains firm enough for passage and rises slightly out of the swamp to the west. To the east the road disappears entirely under black water for twenty yards or so then emerges again to proceed unsteadily on its way. Continuing east is most likely a sink or swim proposition, and perhaps both. You also see the ruins of a paved stone road disappearing further into the swamp to the south.

You do not have to own a stall for fast travel. You can travel from any stable, inside of town, and from your stall (if owned).

Purchase the mount, purchase the upgrade, find a room in town. Good to go!

MOUNT TRAVEL TOWN RETURN
This is a new command that will allow you to ride back to where you started your journey from with MOUNT TRAVEL TOWN. The RETURN command must be used within 24 hours of using your TRAVEL TOWN. It must also be used from the room you arrived in to return to whence you came.

Thanks to Haliste, Wyrom, and Estild for coming together on these changes.

Quick question: Does the cooldown reset at midnight, or is it 24 hours real-time? Also just want to reiterate again, fantastic changes - I purchased my town to town unlock yesterday! ~Land Pirate Maylan~

24 hours real-time from use.

Subject: Titles and Mounting in Combat


The limited run jousting titles (Serpentine Knight, Vermilion Knight, Virescent Knight, and Niveous Knight) requirements have been lowered from 1000 to 500 wins for each side.

You can now mount while in combat. This should allow you to immediately fast travel after a hunt without issue. You will still be dismounted if attacked or attacking though.

>Thandiwe taught me via discord that INSPECT [PLAYER NAME] [MOUNT] should work for others to see the details of your mounts. But I do think a simple LOOK would be better. This is part of the reason I have held off on purchasing anything to fancify my turtle friend for now. ~Land Pirate Maylan~

>But I do think a simple LOOK would be better.

Agreed -- but that won't be able to be implemented. It's just not possible given all the things. I've inquired.

Horses should be able to eat stuff that meet criteria of being 1) food 2) foraged and 3) things that fall into the nouns of foods they can eat. I'll look at this if there seems to be issues with them not eating the things that they should be able to eat. Let me know if they're NOT eating things that they should.

Subject: Mount inventory limits


There was a bug that was allowing you to put more than the 10-item limit on (some) mounts. This was causing inventory to disappear! (Think of it as the last itee you put on the mount pushes off the first item because there's only room for 10 things!) This has been resolved. However...

Just because the limit is 10 items doesn't mean you will be able to have 10 items! Horse mounts have lots of inventory locations - tortoise mounts not so much. They only have: head (2), neck (1), front legs (2) and back legs (2), which means the most they will have (not included the leads) is 7.

In addition, there was another bug that allowed you to put more than the declared inventory limit (ie: 3 bracelets on the front legs), but this has also been squashed.

Let me know if you have any questions.
