So, when are we going to have a support group? With badges. And a twelve step plan.


out of the closet

"My name is Caroline and I have a Cities addiction. I never have more than 1AP at a time and I haven't slept in four days. I only started because it's what all the cool kids were doing. All my money is spent on my internet dial up charges and I'm thinking of getting a tattoo to mark my initiation into the Fire brotherhood. I've made an arrangement to meet up with this guy at the festival, we talked for hours via palantir, he seems so nice, he promised to heal me. I need help. Thank you for your time" Caroline 17:54, 5 Sep 2005 (BST)

Update - "I've been doing so well but this week I need your support more than ever. I'm doing the standing stones quest which is going to mean I have to be near an internet connection around the clock. It's not my fault, it's the way the game is designed. I'm going to apologise in advance for running off home at odd hours of the day and night. Remember - Just take each stone as it comes." Caroline 18:34, 11 Nov 2005 (BST)

another story

I suppose my story must be typical. You know, it starts with something small - a quick Mug of Coffee behind the trading post with a couple of gnomes, but it's not long before that's just not enough... a half of Cider and Black is, like, just there, and now I'm on a Bottle of Wine-a-day habit. But I can handle it. I could give up any time. Couldn't I?

To cheer them up jmb recieves a shot of absinthe, a pouch of magic powder and 10 fags. Hopefully this will help break their current addictions. It won't be long until he's killing sandworms in search of spice. Elseware 20:11, 7 Nov 2005 (GMT)

a further story

My name is mikej, and I kill hippies. Every day is spent attacking hippies with my snark and my morning star and stealing their ale. Sometimes I wake in cold sweats and have to kill one more hippy before I can go back to sleep. When there are no hippies left, I take out my anger on stoners, but it's just not the same. It's not the same. People tell me I should worship at the dawn shrine and leave, but I can't go while there are still hippies there. It just wouldn't be right. Joe Banana has threatened to ban me if I keep attacking his clientele, but I know what I do is right.

a sad confession

My name is Havelock and I've lost my wiki password, so I can get in to the game but not the wiki could someone with admin-ish rights palantir me my password or a new one in the game please? I'm stuck in the gauntlet having done earth & air dragon so hopefully only got water and fire to face. BUT no arrows, no bandages, no glass swords and no booze left so unless talismans work in the gauntlet yhen I'm staring death in the face (and I'm scared). 09:33, 11 Nov 2005 (GMT) (but really havelock)

Talismans work just fine in the gauntlet, I used one when my only long bow broke. The downside is that to complete the gauntlet quest you'll have to start over at the beginning. The good news is you now qualify to be an earl, so the boost to your damage modifier will help.

a cautionary tale

I am known only as Kitty. I used to kill things, many things. Until the day when, hyped up on coffee and cigarettes I went wandering in the bad part of Fire city, down by the temple. This priest said he had the answer to all my problems, had a way for me to get all my agression out. He ushered me into this dark corridor. Everything I'd slain in the past, all those monsters, came back to haunt me. I fought and fought until I was insane with the bloodlust. Then a Roc got a lucky slash at me and I woke up aching and penniless with all my cards missing in my home town. I've lost everything. I hope this serves as a warning for any other hot heads like me out there. Everyone has a bad day once in a while.

What's wrong with you people?

How could you possibly let yourself get so hopelessly addicted to such a foolish little -- wait, gotta go, my AP are positive again... Sertularian 05:38, 31 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Triffid Sting Affliction Disorder

It all started when I just needed a few more AP to get to the next Standing stone so I ate a Triffid Sting, it hurt at first but then I just felt so energised. The stomach cramps I got every hour were bearable cos I was getting lots done but there is always another stone to reach. Before I knew it I was eating these things like crisps, now all my hair and teeth have fallen out and my poison level is 25. Im now stuck in the inner circle with 1 hp. I cant fight, have given all my talismans to the stones and spent all my money on healers. I think its time to admit I have a Triffid sting problem and get some help. User:The Beggar - 8th March

Perchance to dream

From IRC:

* JAD|Asleep plays cities in his sleep
<Kaos_Dragon> Had any dreams about it yet?
* dragon has.  More than once.
<JAD|Asleep> actually (and possibly sadly), I had a dream about the paparazzi quest last night
<Kaos_Dragon> I've had maybe 7 or 8...

Hmm. Maybe there should be a Ham Omelette object in the game. All you need is some sheep parts, and a couple of fish... Two sheep, perchance two bream... Darksatanic 12:27, 21 April 2007 (BST)
But would you really need the fish to make it work? Two bream, or not two bream — that is the question. -Stelio 10:42, 28 April 2007 (BST)

horsie dreams

For reasons that are beyond me, I cooked up my theory on the probabilities of horsie alignment in my sleep a few weeks ago. And I check the pedigree page every day to see if any new information has been added. But I can quit any time I like. Honest. Rhapsodie 08:33, 24 January 2008 (GMT)
