Does it work now? --Duke angelsk MD 10:29, 29 August 2007 (BST)

For the Thieves' Den and Dojo, it will cost 7,000 to summon you to each (2,000 if you provide the Summon Stone), and after an initial summon, you won't need us anymore since you can talisman in and out. For the Bomb Squad quest, I would say 50,000 for an escort through the Caverns (if you summon one of us to the entrance; 55,000 if we have to make our own way there and/or summon you with one of your stones; and 60,000 if we have to summon you with one of our stones.) I'm water aligned at the moment and have plenty of water wands, so we could do the Bomb Squad soon. Let me know. Azuaron 18:50, 12 February 2008 (GMT)

Well, if you want to pay more, I'm certainly willing to take your money... Although, I did just realize I forgot the mechanics of the Caverns, as I was originally thinking that you just needed the tarot cards to pray, but now I'm remembering I'll need them as well to move. So, at a card price of 1,000 each, that would add another 22,000 (assuming we, for some crazy reason, travel in the least efficient manner possible: actual cost will reflect actual path). This fee will, of course, disappear if you provide the cards (sorry for springing a hidden cost on you). Other than that, I think we'll be good. 3 Summon Stones, tarot cards/extra cash, and 59,000 for the whole deal. I'll be at the party collecting AP. Azuaron 21:20, 12 February 2008 (GMT)
I'm certainly fine with money in advance. My upper AP cap is already pretty high, so I wasn't too worried about wasting AP while waiting for you. And I've always got assorted ores to be smelted, food to be prepared, etc. Also, there's a pentacle right next to the party which works as a trading post, if that would work. Since, as you mentioned, you'll be consuming a lot more AP than I will be, would you mind charging at the party for a bit before we go? Azuaron 01:33, 13 February 2008 (GMT)
I'm at the Pentacle, waiting for delivery. Azuaron 13:29, 13 February 2008 (GMT)
Seems we can't double-up on the Horsie (which is unfortunate, but probably planned). I went to Foundation using Card: The World. Azuaron 04:43, 14 February 2008 (GMT)

Still looking for someone to enchant talismans for you? Bort was talking about doing the same. If you're both interested, I'd be willing to do it for you for 79KGP plus the blanks (100KGP is the going rate for the totems - it'd be 75KGP if you're both getting totems, since I'll be there already, plus an additional 4KGP for Moo Moo (since sea travel is expensive). If you're interested, let me know. -- Belkar 00:03, 3 July 2008 (BST)

Actually, the cost would be 79K PLUS the talismans (25 in all) - if you can bring them (plus half the cost - 37K) to the Brighthelm TP tomorrow, I'll go ahead and get started. -- Belkar 19:13, 4 July 2008 (BST)
I'm at Brighthelm now (sorry for the delay). If you have Talismen (or want to give me the cash to go by the Talismen) let me know. I can summon you, if need be. -- Belkar 22:05, 7 July 2008 (BST)
Summoned. Once I get the talis, I'll head off. May take a little while, since I've got two sets to put together (one for you, and one for Bort). -- Belkar 23:56, 7 July 2008 (BST)



I was on holiday all summer and just recently came back and formed a guild based on a similar group (Stonecutters) I started spring 2006, before there was in-game support. Now I expect it to really take off. I'm mostly recruiting senior members, but I'd like to invite you as well because your wiki skills are as valuable to us as any in-game support. If you maintain the group's wiki pages, our high-level guys should be able to give you a quick boost up the ladder. Whaddya say? Billz8 23:05, 18 August 2007 (BST)

I wouldn't have offered if I didn't want to help. See, the thing is that if you're just starting off, most of the things you need are things we probably have just lying around, or stuff we won't miss. Take the treasure hunt quest, for instance. That might take weeks for a new player to assemble, but I have probably 99% of the stuff just lying around. On the other hand, if all of the guild members are at the same level and after the same things, it's much harder to share resources because we all need the same things. So I think it's a good deal for both of us. If nothing else, you can give some of your AP to help finish our projects. My offer stands. Billz8 21:06, 19 August 2007 (BST)


I saw that El Forjador is looking to become an Armourer in the long run. Any interest in joining the Hammered Anvil Society? If he's looking to become a Master Armourer without killing much if at all, getting help from those of us who are already there would make it a lot easier. He wouldn't be the first pacifist member of the Society, either - Calm Breeze (our resident Mage) is a nonviolent type as well. -- Durkon 23:39, 25 September 2007 (BST)


Thank you very much! I had no problems inserting the code you gave me. -Jon 13:07, 11 September 2007 (BST)


PotatoFeeder tweak: "find nearest pasture"

Unfortunately, finding the nearest pasture would require loading a map into Firefox (as I did for the Golden Condor Navigator), and I'm rather leery of that sort of thing. The Great Cities Map's public map data consists of about 60,000 tiles, and storing that information in the registry (as I did for GCN) adds around six MB to the Firefox registry, and makes Firefox load slowly every time you load it, regardless of whether you use GCN. You're probably better off just using the GCM to find nearby meadows and pastures, rather than shoehorning it into a pet-feeder script.

Mind you, I might be able to squeeze this ability into the Golden Condor Navigator, because I keep tweaking that script. It shouldn't be too hard to put in a brushfire algorithm looking for meadows and pastures. GCN might end up as the Cities Navigator (Golden Condor capable) rather than just purely a GCN. If you'd like this done in the near future, I do accept commissions. (This particular ability would probably be on the order of a Furious Bow or two, a handful of Power Crystals, or something else in that ballpark.) PotatoEngineer 21:53, 22 June 2008 (BST)

There's no actual way to tell if a horsie is at your feet and hungry, unless you keep your equipment in the side pane on the left. (Personally, I don't.) However, one of my eventual plans is to add a "search" function into GCN, so it can be used to locate healers (including Jude and other non-standardly-named healers), standing stones, and other points of interest. It's easy enough to add "pasture/meadow" into the search terms once I get the search working. I even have some vague plans to make searches user-configurable, should you find something interesting I didn't think of. PotatoEngineer 05:31, 27 June 2008 (BST)
It's done! There's now 3 built-in searches for GCN (pasture/meadow, healer, and standing stone), and you can create your own. If you know regular expressions, you can make some pretty clever searches, but if not, it should still work for you (and there's now a bare-bones tutorial at Regex). As a default, GCN won't search more than 40 spaces away, but you can set that to further if you like. PotatoEngineer 02:43, 30 June 2008 (BST)
This was a tweak for a script, not a complete create-a-new-script, so I charge a bit less for that. I'm thinking something along the lines of one Furious Bow (|=ur10u5 |3ows not accepted ;) ), three Power Crystals, one Possibility (admittedly, that's a bit steep; I can give you a couple of power crystals in change if you pay with a Possibility), or anything in that ballpark. I have some vague plans for Pizza, too, so if you've nothing else but your AP, we can work out a price (maybe 8-10 pizzas' worth of stuff, or 7 actual pizzas). Does any of this work for you?

I'm currently parked at the Trading Post in Earth City, 97E 5N. I'll be there for a day or two, so drop on by! PotatoEngineer 05:06, 2 July 2008 (BST)


Wiki formatting

My, my. That's some lovely work you've done (and presumably are still doing). I must say that in terms of Wiki formatting, yours is by far the most beautiful page around. :-) It's a very elegant style and a tastefully erudite choice of colours. I'm very impressed.

You say, "If you need help doing something don't be afraid to ask." Well there was one thing that I was thinking about and I wondered if you might know the trick of it. I'd like to make hideable sections of text under a title with [+] to show the text, and [-] to hide it again; that standard technique. I have found methods to do this from WikiMedia but they require JavaScript which I don't believe we can use here. I rather suspect that this would be possible otherwise, but I thought I might ask someone who is clearly very experienced in case there is another way.

Thanks, Stelio 11:19, 22 July 2007 (BST)


I have a book bag with all the Heinlein Books except 2 and a golden sickle you can borrow. --TerrorRemedy 23:14, 27 August 2007 (BST)

Park Bench in Air City will be fine. --TerrorRemedy 21:55, 28 August 2007 (BST)
No rush. Take the time you need to reed those books. Palantir me when you're done.
