I've got spare ivory! Have you anything that might interest me? I'm looking for party components, notably records & amps. A copy of the cat who walks through walls, a water catana and some random stuff that can be found on my userpage would facilitate a trade. --Corellis 20:38, 28 October 2008 (EST)

Yep, I have 4 spare ivory. How many pieces do you need? The amps are the most imporant, but the herbs will be useful until I switch to pure and start my kudos quest. --Corellis 15:38, 11 November 2008 (EST)
How many amps do you have? I was thinking of 3 amps for 2 ivory. I'll pay 2k for 3 of those magic herbs. --Corellis 18:05, 12 November (EST)


I have your cheese. Come to the pentacle and say something to let me know you're there to claim it.--LimeHan 18:38, 15 August 2008 (BST)

Oz party summon

I tried to summon you but it didn't work. Not sure why. What's your username? Theendisnigh 09:09, 23 May 2007 (BST)

Daemonic Great Sword

Out of curiosity, what 10k-hp monster wouldn't make a DGS from a DS, and did anything special occur (melting), or just nothing? Regardless, you don't need 15k--I have verified that 10240 is enough... --Dragon 08:28, 21 December 2006 (GMT)

10K was sufficient for my 8 or 9 DGSs. -- Sertularian 12:52, 21 December 2006 (GMT)
It was a Bling Wraith. I wonder if this is a bug or if I've stumbled on an unnoticed feature of daemonic weapons. (Or if I'm just an idiot. That's always a possibility.) -Scrumbucket 15:54, 21 December 2006 (GMT)

Vault Keys

You do know that the vault key is only useful to let other people into your vault, right? As far as I know, you don't need one to get into your own. -- Thog 12:55, 2 February 2007 (GMT)

  • Thanks for the liver, it was delicious! --Gretchin 01:48, 1 March 2007 (GMT)

pet sitting service

... is herewith offered to you by me for the time you're gone. As stated on the kennels page you'd need to provide enough food for the time you're gone. Since I'm saving up poop to get a dung beetle, I won't ask for any other payment (but, of course, you can bribe me with huge piles of gold if you feel generous). Rockefellow 10:30, 8 March 2007 (GMT)

Good to have you back =) I didn't get your palantir, but just sent you one. Just in case it was lost: I'm at the Rites of the Equal N0rx so you could come there to pick up your pets. There's a trading post nearby, so just send me a palantir or better ask flt in #cities. Rockefellow09:20, 26 March 2007 (BST)


From your inventory, I'd be interested in Crocodile Scales, Glass Swords, Vorpal Blades, or Gold Pieces for the fruit, in descending order of preference. Citiesberg seems to be down right now, so I can't check the current relative worth of each item; if you'd care to make an offer in the meantime.... Ravensdance 16:37, 1 April 2007 (BST)


Hey. Still looking for a new cabinet? I can do it for you for double materials. Let me know if this works - talk page is best. -- Durkon 17:16, 18 April 2007 (BST)

Double materials are fine. The talk page is actually out of date - I'm only looking for speedboat plans atm. I'm a bit low on AP, so it'll be a while, but I'll let you know as soon as it's done. -- Durkon 17:31, 18 April 2007 (BST)
I've got enough materials to make the cabinet now, so feel free to take your time forging the nails :-) -- Durkon 17:52, 18 April 2007 (BST)
No worries. Nails would be fine to make up the wood deficit. Figure I should be able to meet in about an hour (a half hour to get out of AP debt, and a half hour to work up enough AP to get to the trading post :-)) -- Durkon 01:55, 19 April 2007 (BST)
I'm at the trading post now. Say 4 nails? -- Durkon 03:02, 19 April 2007 (BST)

I will take good care of Fluffy for you, if you like. I have kept all of my pets well-fed so far - Fang, Fleabait and Fester, Finnegan, and Franklinite. Fluffy will fit right in. -- Sertularian 23:02, 6 September 2007 (BST)

I'm headed to the Swap Shop in Water City now.  :) -- Sertularian 01:10, 9 September 2007 (BST)

Power Crystals and Speed Boat Plans

hey, I've got 2 power crystals I could spare and a set of speed boats plans I could loan out. And I'm broke. I've kinda got a number in mind, and I don't think power crystals are worth what they sell for on the market. If you're interested, make me an offer. density 13:48, 25 April 2007 (BST)

yeah, I don't really want cash, either. Doesn't do me much good. Save that I need a New Cabinet. But I've almost raised the cash for that. Just need to sell another cheap fur coat or two (wanna cheap fur coat?). I'll loan out the speed boat plans whenever you want, that's no problem. The power crystals took a bit of work, though. I could use putters, I've an interest in killing vordor men but not found a putter yet. An Anti-hista would be cool. I don't have many crows bows right now. Whatever, I don't care much. density 14:05, 27 April 2007 (BST)
That would work. Right now I'm working on some monsters in the thieves forrest, but can break at any point. Where would you care to meet?
I'm AP'd out in the party now. Give me a bit and I'll meet you at the OLD TRADING POST? Does that work? Probably be there and online at around 7pm game time. But I'll hang there till I find you. density 16:51, 1 May 2007 (BST)
yeah, may I please have the plans back when you have time. I'll come back to the party for now, and then go to the same trading post when I hear from you?density 16:57, 3 May 2007 (BST)
haha, I'm actually up north right now. Wandering around trying to find a good ole ice dragon and some ice demons to kill. I'll head to the mall tomorrow and we can trade I guess at the pentacle that I hope they have set up.-density

hey, sorry I've been kinda busy and not getting around here. Right now density is in OZ, trying to get some totems connected. But he is in no hurry. Let me know when and where you would like to meet, and I'll do my utmost to be there. I'll try to check in on my talk page, but... if I could ask you to spend the ap on a payg... I always get those. Whenever you have time, just give me half a days notice or so. Thanks. density 18:36, 28 June 2007 (BST)


Hiya, I only really need one bottle of sparkling water but I don't mind buying them all. Just trying to get mixology finished sometime this year! Not sure what time you are around the game so can I suggest 3 pm this afternoon (game time) in the satanic circle. I guess you could be in a different time zone so let me know. I could make it earlier or later. Katerwaul 09:55, 27 April 2007 (BST)

I'm at the satanic circle now scrumbucket, have passed you the gold. Katerwaul 15:05, 27 April 2007 (BST)

Thanks for the sparkling water gratefully received!Katerwaul 19:26, 27 April 2007 (BST)


Heh. Sorry, I just came into a lot of milk, and a fair amount of quarrels. Anything else you'd like to offer? :) -- 1:37, May 1 2007 (GMT)


Am making note of suggestions like yours and will add them after the voting has finished so as not to alter the site after the deadline. Have several more features planned for the future. --Duke angelsk MD 16:26, 1 May 2007 (BST)



I'm interested in trading for your Acle. I can align one of your Catanas (or more, with additional compensation). PAYG me in-game or via wiki. 22:43, 10 June 2007 (BST)

I haven't figured out what the price would be for other Catanas yet but they'll generally be more than the cost of an acle (I'm just a whore for acles at this point, though). I'll have your catana ready tomorrow after my AP regenerates and, hopefully, I'll have made up my mind about the cost for other catanas. FYI - a Fire Catana went for $40K on IRC just a few minutes ago to a certain player named after very large fire-breathing lizards. 03:27, 11 June 2007 (BST)
I see you've accumulated a couple more Acles; can I offer my magical abilities to provide the flame to two of your weapons in exchange? 17:38, 23 December 2007 (GMT)

Flaming Sword

Hey there! I can turn your 6 Fire Swords into 3 Flaming Swords. I'm looking for cold hard cash (60K for all three). Shaman alanda 20:56, 30 July 2007 (BST)

Save your Summon Stones - I can get to Oz with little problem. Where, and when, would be best to meet? I'm usually "around" from about 14:00 to 24:00 game-time. Shaman alanda
Sorry I missed you earlier! I was trying to get there but got pulled away at work. I'm at the TP in Atlantish now and should be free for the next few hours. alanda 21:43, 31 July 2007 (BST) [Edit] Heading back to the party because I believe I have another trade pending and don't want to miss a message from the other character there. Let me know when you're ready, though, and if you want a faster response from me, try finding me on IRC under the name redsnare. Thanks! alanda 01:05, 1 August 2007 (BST)
Can you meet at the Atlantish TP at 14:00 game-time today? I have a fairly tight schedule with work but I'll try to squeeze it in and get you your swords. alanda 12:41, 1 August 2007 (BST)
Trade completed! Pleasure doing business with you! alanda 14:39, 1 August 2007 (BST)

More Acles & Aligned Weaponry

Sounds good. Base weaponry required if it's a Catana or a Sharp Sword (I've got plenty of Bows). 15K plus the 2 Fire Swords per Flaming Sword. I'm at the Pentacle, too, so if you pass the stuff over I'll get it back to you ASAP. alanda 15:05, 10 January 2008 (GMT)

Done! Who said business doesn't mix with pleasure? Errr, that doesn't look quite as innocent as it really is. :-) alanda 00:40, 11 January 2008 (GMT)
Figured I'd throw a Spirit Catcher in as a gift, too, to keep you coming back to the HToW instead of that crazed wizard who's setup shop over on the dark side. ;-) alanda 00:54, 11 January 2008 (GMT)
Hey! I resemble that remark.  ;) -- A Mad Wizard

Woo-hoo! A Three Way (trade)

Sorry, I've been out-of-pocket for a couple of days here. I received all your items and am ready to hand back the 5 Flaming Swords. I started another Pentacle at the same location as the last (yes, I'm extremely lazy and still a bit busy). I'm heading out of town for the weekend starting tomorrow and will most likely not have access to Cities. I haven't had time to figure out how many Catanas I can make but it may have to be put off until I have a little more free time. Let me know. 19:06, 2 July 2008 (BST)

Fire Sword2's given. A pleasure as always. Enjoy your vacation! 21:07, 2 July 2008 (BST)


I'll be online pretty much the whole day, so just send me a message and I meet you at the Water City trading post. Well, either that or summon rockefellow to a trading post of your choice (flt wears a hat atm). And for compensation, if you have some spare diamonds I could feed my rock with, I'd gladly take them. If not, don't worry about it.

Will be online all day again, so just send me a palantir and I'll come to pick up your pets. As long as you provide enough food, I can take care of all of them. Actually I'm really interested in taking that Sea Horsie of yours on a longer trip into the deep sea and would find that trip well worth the AP spent on feeding every day. Flt 09:06, 15 June 2007 (BST)

Master Armourer Rockefellow will stay at the pentacle for the whole day (or at least until the party starts), so if you find the time, just drop Anu-Barak and his little beetle fellow there. And your assumption is perfectly right: I won't need any extra poop to extend my supply of roughly 1600 pounds. Flt 09:01, 9 September 2007 (BST)

Your two Giant Dung Beetles are with rockefellow at the current party. We can meet at the Park Bench since there seems to be no trading post closer to it. Just send me a palantir when you're there and I'll come meet you. And I have no idea what I could ask from you for my pet sitting duties. I'm always in the need of Ore (especially iron), so if you have some spares I'd be happy to put them to use.

I just saw you have a yet virgin Sea Horsie. If you want we can meet up to find out if it's male or female. You actually only need to hold another horsie and see if they would mate. Then you can still decide who to mate it with . Flt 14:34, 28 October 2007 (GMT)

Temporal Sun

Thanks for the summon to the party; I'd like to return the stone to you (and, say, 10kGP?); I'm not sure how the etiquette for these things proceeds. It'll be another day before I have AP again. (I'm also trying to get a copy of YDNY and the other records I don't have, and I have some Midas Wands (or straight GP) to trade, if you're interested (if not, no big deal).) TemporalSun 10:44, 28 July 2007 (BST)

I can get you a Rodden Berry in...~6 hours. When my AP regens, at any rate ( I also have a Demonic Letter Opener (and I'm willing to part with a Demonic Sword).

I'm trying to get a copy of the Heinlein I Will Fear No Evil, as well as the CDs you mentioned ('Believe', 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun,' 'Macho Man', 'Relax', and 'Y.M.C.A.'). I simply need to borrow the Heinlein book (I can hand it back after I've read it). TemporalSun 00:43, 29 July 2007 (BST)

Okay. I have a Rodden Berry now (they had one in the mall for fairly cheap, and I had to go to the mall anyway), but I'm several hours away from getting back to the party (I AP'd out, and I have a few more things to do before I head back). I'll trade 2 Bones, a DLO, a DS, and the Rodden Berry for the five CDs above and a copy of I Will Fear No Evil. Does that work for you? TemporalSun 02:51, 29 July 2007 (BST)
Actually, I don't need I Will Fear No Evil anymore, and I'm on my way back to the party tick-by-tick. (Instead, I need Glory Road...*sighs*)
2 Bones, a DLO, a DS, that summon stone I got from you originally, and the Rodden Berry for the five CDs above. TemporalSun 03:06, 29 July 2007 (BST)
I'm ready whenever - I'll be around for the next few hours, and I have AP to hand it over. Currently, I'm at the trading post south of the party. TemporalSun 05:48, 29 July 2007 (BST)


Welcome back! I'll be at the Pentacle near Windy City for the forseeable future, so if you could wait there, I'll return Watson to you ASAP, along with 190 Diamonds. (About all I have left. I don't really have any use for them.) As far as payment goes, I could use Doses of Magic Powder or useless Bling, but you're already doing all of us aspiring Wizards a favor by taking part in the Spring Cleaning Contest. :) Good luck!

S. Mackie


So! 31200 sound good for your Sea Horsie? 10:23, 7 January 2008 (GMT)

The copy of the spell would shave off 7200, making it 24000. The strike... see, that's an excellent idea, but there's just no price on them at the moment. A copy of the spell, two magic-goods, and a strike is, in total, everything I'd need to cast the spell except about 26 AP or so, which is what, 2600 gold?
So if you really care to just hand stuff off for expedience, it would be 2600 gold, two magic-goods, and a strike.
To clarify, mana at 1000 apiece, AP at 100 apiece, and strikes not taken into account for cash purposes (I've been bringing them to the table myself gratis.) Magic-goods I buy at 1000 per mana (12000) and two of them would be 24 mana, the cost of the spell...
I'm sorry. I'm a little zoned right now. My point is, if you just hand me everything and 2600, you're fine. Find the price you prefer. I'll be at the penty very soon. 04:55, 8 January 2008 (GMT)
Everything received, including the precious deceased. Risen from the dead and fed on my fronds, it waits to be reunited with its loving master. I'll get the source code and figure out its ID number before I hand it over. 07:34, 9 January 2008 (GMT)
Addendum: For your notes, <option value="Pwny.10616">Sea Horsie (Spot)</option> 07:35, 9 January 2008 (GMT)


John T. Clark inquired about our pwny, and I made him a reply. I helped him out when he was only a runt, and remember him being nice and thankful about it. So, I have no problems right now with sending him a pwny. If you do, let me know. I told him that we're not really interested in money right now, since it's not worth much. But that if he wanted to butter us up, we like butter. Mm.... buttery goodness... Also, I asked for a promise to keep the pwny alive and healthy and to further the genome project. Does this sound ok to you?density 14:19, 15 February 2008 (GMT)

To Anonymous Benefactors

Thank you.

Seridipitus gives you 4 Glass Swords.

Hydra Spading

How about the amount of damage you do is taken as a percentage chance of that hit spawning a new head, irrespective of the total hit points of the hydra? I wasn't exactly keeping meticulous records back when I was killing massive hydras, but I didn't notice any reduction in the head-spawning rate as the heads went into the hundreds (or thousands...). The spawning definitely scaled with the damage, though, and was automatic when I used attacks that did more than a hundred points of damage. Ravensdance 08:36, 13 June 2009 (BST)
