My post is not spam. I am trying to find a partner for collaborative play. More collaboration helps the game, and blocking collaboration hurts it. The Current Events page has been used the same way since it was created.

If you want people to post their offers on another page instead, then I recommend constructive efforts to build up that page and get people to watch it (I have treid to help by placing my post there as well). Until it is watched, it will remain a place where collaborative offers go to die. I also recommend refraining from destructive efforts by deleting the posts of the people you are trying to convince.

Your post is unmitigated spam. And spam gets deleted. - Isambard 17:41, 17 March 2007 (GMT)
Please explain. My post is an attempt to raise in-game cooperative play. It is exactly the kind of thing the wiki was intended for. Why is it offensive to you? Billz8 17:43, 17 March 2007 (GMT)

Bargain Time

To yourself and the other anon person who reformatted my shop page, thank you very much. Did you do this manually or use some sort of script?

- Timekeeper

It was no trouble. I used a search/replace tool in EditPad. - Isambard 16:56, 13 December 2006 (GMT)

Category:Item changes

I noticed that you're stripping the "Category:Item" off of all of the individual item pages where you find them. Can I ask why? I believe that having pages in multiple categories is useful, and the current "Category:Items" is used only for the original multi-item-per-page pages, so cluttering it with individual item pages would be counterproductive. Eventually, having each individual-item page linked through a category will create an excellent auto-generated table of contents divided by first letter, which is much easier to search than the TOC-of-doom that the multi-item pages have. PotatoEngineer 19:51, 12 April 2006 (BST)

I think it's standard procedure in Wikis not to have articles in both categories and sub-categories. And a single, massive list of all items isn't particularly useful. Searching for a specific item can be done with the search bar, and general browsing of items is easier when they're listed in separate categories. - Isambard 01:20, 13 April 2006 (BST)
Good point. I'll toss some index pages together later if they feel necessary, but I'll skip the category. PotatoEngineer 02:14, 14 April 2006 (BST)

Incorrect page redirection: Emissary Message

I believe you redirected this page to the wrong place, but I don't know how to fix it. It should redirect to Event/Emissary, not to Piece of Torn Parchment. BlaisedeC 03:54, 16 April 2006 (BST)

The Emissary Message and Event/Torn Parchment pages were virtually identical in content, so I redirected one to the other. - Isambard 06:01, 16 April 2006 (BST)
No, they were not. The Events/Torn Parchment page had the torn parchment, while the Emissary Message page had the responses the Emissary monsters have given to being hit. BlaisedeC 17:39, 17 April 2006 (BST)

Thank you. I didn't know you could do that! -- Sertularian 01:39, 10 June 2006 (BST)


Planting beans

Last time I checked it was still 3 cucumbers per bean in the desert, any reason why you changed that ?

My mistake. - Isambard 20:12, 24 August 2006 (BST)


Thanks for adopting! I passed the Peeve onto joolsholland, along with 5 kudos for the first few feedings. Let me know how it goes! Zingus 21:35, 20 February 2007 (GMT)

It looks as though everything the Peeve's eat is sticky unfortunately, otherwise I'd give you more food items. Measures of serenity don't exactly come cheap. I think Sheepshank will just have to be a cautionary tale for other potential Peeve owners. Thanks for trying though! Zingus 16:21, 22 February 2007 (GMT)


Good morning Sir, my name is rockefellow and I'll be your armourer today. I have a New Cabinet embossed with your name on the lid ready. I'm currently at the party, so could meet you at the Old Trading Post in Fire City.


What is the benefit to using {{img|arm3}} instead of class="arm3"? --BlaisedeC 22:39, 26 July 2007 (BST)

The template also has a fix for the borders. - Isambard 22:41, 26 July 2007 (BST)

alanda for the HToW

Regarding your order: Sorry for the delay! I had to transcribe the spell and then go on a Mana hunting mission. I now have 6 Miracle Pills and am currently at the Pentacle. I had to cast the spell at the Pentacle but I'm not sure if you need to force the pill down the pets throat there as well. I'm also not sure if the process still requires 2 pills per pet or if that was deemed a bug and has since been corrected. It's 30K/pill which would be 120K GP to revive the two pets. I'll definitely consider interesting counter-offers, too (i.e. bulk copies of spells, acles, strikes, etc). Leave me a message on my talk page, PAYG me in-game, or catch me on IRC as redsnare; I'm usually on-and-off between 14:00-2:00 game-time. 23:37, 17 September 2007 (BST)

You don't need to feed them at a pentacle, and you still need 2 pills, but each one only makes it 1% evil (instead f 10% before)--Solune 08:31, 18 September 2007 (BST)

Spirit Catchers

In case it slips your mind, best use them on Hungry Ghosts. They will get a shot at you, so bag your foods and drinks; doesn't matter if you catch them, they're just hungry that way. Thought I'd warn ya. Any other ghosts are, of course, a waste of time. 06:16, 16 October 2007 (BST)


Actually, I have a couple of plain Catanas that I wouldn't mind getting Bound Gnomes for so I can align them, but I have no idea what that's worth. I do have the Bind Spirit spells and Skull Gull Skulls required. Let me know how this sounds? Rhapsodie 06:48, 11 January 2008 (GMT)

The other option is that I discovered after I left this message that my Dung Beetle died (how embarrassment). I don't know that a Miracle Pill would be worth the spell (feel free to correct me if I am wrong!), but I don't currently own a Bowling Ball to try and get a Strike for myself, so I can get a pill made later. Let me know what you think - I see you have plenty of bowling balls! :) Rhapsodie 11:20, 11 January 2008 (GMT)
Good point. I'd hate him to kill me or something! Rhapsodie 23:34, 11 January 2008 (GMT)
I just gave you the Water Walking Spell. Did you want the Bind Spirit Spells as well, or are we good? :) Rhapsodie 07:18, 12 January 2008 (GMT)
Thanks very much - enjoy the spell! Rhapsodie 02:00, 13 January 2008 (GMT)
