Yuna Interview

# Saturday, October 13, 2001::01:02:15 :: Now logging session to C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\yuna.txt A Pool-Side Bar. Various colored lights spot the room and ocaissionally beam. out to the sky as you step toward a more relaxed area in the poolhouse. . Though there is no bartender at the moment, prepared drinks are in abundance. on each of the tables. There are a few tables here basking in gentle. Candlelight. . [Exits: east] [Doors: none]. Many tables are on the instep of the pool-side bar, looking to be occupied.. You say 'Let me know when you're ready.' Looking around you see:. Yuna, right here.. You peer intently east.. Sucker love is-Heaven Sent. you pucker up-our passion spent. My heart's a chart-your body's rent. my body's broken-yours is bent. Carve your name in-to my arm. instead of stressed I lie here charmed. Cause there's nothing else to do-every me and every you. Sucker love: a box I choose. no other box-I choose to use. Another love-I would abuse. no circumstances-could excuse. In the shape of things to come. too much poison comes undone. Cause there's nothing else to do-every me and every you. Sucker love has-come to swing. Prone to cling and wasty stings. pucker up for heavens sake. there's never been so much at stake. I serve my head up-on a plate. it's only comfort calling late. Cause there's nothing else to do-every me and every you. Like the Naked-leads the blind. perhaps I'm 'selfish' and 'unkind' Sucker love-I always find. Someone to 'bruise' and 'leave behind' All Alone in Space in time. There's nothing here-but what is mine. Something borrowed-something blue: Every me and Every you. Yuna is in excellent condition..

Yuna wears **nWo** tattoo on her arms.. You say 'Who are you?' Yuna says [OOC] 'hehe, who am I as in Currently or Since I started? :)' You say [OOC] 'Who are you now? IC?' Yuna says [OOC] 'k' Krogenar listens.. Yuna says 'I am Yuna, High Summoner. I watch over the Shadowthieves at their request.' You say 'How did you come to WaterDeep?' Yuna says 'Waterdeep appealed to me due to it's growing popularity, I decided to give it a try, and was hired shortly after.' You say 'And why do you watch The ShadowThieves?' You say 'Do you have some connection to them?' Krogenar listens.. Yuna says 'The thieves, and I share a connection of sorts.' Dagna's Forge: Manheim has arrived.. Dagna's Forge: Manheim buys @blade of[//the Faithful/////>.. Dagna's Forge: Manheim buys @blade of[//the Faithful/////>.. Dagna's Forge: Manheim stops using a chessboard..

Dagna's Forge: Manheim stops using a potion of true sight.. Dagna's Forge: Manheim wields @blade of[//the Faithful/////> in his off-hand.. Dagna's Forge: Manheim leaves south.. Yuna says [OOC] 'pardon the dagna forge spam. it's just a form of security...' You say 'What kind of connection?' Yuna says 'A connection that bonds necessity and purpose, more, or less. They needed insight on the mechanations of Planar Mechani, I needed eyes in the mortal world. An exchange was made.' You say 'Why do they need this insight?' You say 'Can you tell me?' Krogenar withdraws a notepad and pen.. Yuna says 'Both for a nature of security, and a measure of connection. It's one in two. They give me suggestions on how to improve the game, since they usually have a rather unbiased opinion... usually, anyway.' You say [OOC] 'Lets switch to OOC for a bit.' Yuna chuckles politely.. Yuna says [OOC] 'sure' You say [OOC] 'How long have you been an immortal here on WD?' Yuna says [OOC] 'say 3.6 years.' You say [OOC] 'What are your primary duties here?' Yuna says [OOC] 'Everything :p' You cackle gleefully.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I act as front side administration over players, immortals, building, regulations, and all sorts of good stuff.' You say [OOC] 'Do you code?' Yuna says [OOC] 'on and off, I did bug-fix hacks when we were in a pinch' Yuna says [OOC] 'but WD's code is a mutant' Yuna says [OOC] 'it's very picky' Yuna says [OOC] 'I try not to code as much as I can, since I don't understand some of the re-routes ' You say [OOC] 'You said you've been here 3.6 years...' Yuna says [OOC] 'say just about, ' You say [OOC] 'I've only been here, maybe 1.5-2 years... and I've only noticed you recently.... no offense!' Yuna says [OOC] 'I started here when I first entered College.' You say [OOC] 'Did you change from another name?' Yuna says [OOC] 'Well I've had alot of names in the past' You say [OOC] 'Can you share them?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I started as Shar' Yuna says [OOC] 'then I moved to Selune' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I remained Selune for a long long time' You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Why did you change names?' Yuna says [OOC] 'say Also playing alts of Kyra and Nali for rp purposes.' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'RP reasons, there were enough evil gods already' You chuckle politely.. Yuna says [OOC] 'Selune's nature appealed to me, as well as her portfolio' You say [OOC] 'Do you like RP?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I eat RP for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and midnight snacks.' You nod in enthusiastic agreement with Yuna.. You say [OOC] 'I've heard some people say that there isn't enough RP here on WD... how would you respond to that?' Yuna says [OOC] 'look harder.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I never have problems looking for people to RP with'  You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Where should people look?' Yuna says [OOC] 'well' You say [OOC] 'Any tips for people?' Yuna says [OOC] 'due to the ... insolent nature of some certain players and the mentality to interfere some possess, rp polarizes on WD' Yuna says [OOC] 'groups rp in secret' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'segregated in order not to be laughed at, or to have their RP railroaded' You say [OOC] 'I've heard that as well. Could anything be done to change that?' You say [OOC] 'To bring RP out into the open?' Yuna says [OOC] 'not without coming short of snipping the balls of a few 'RP-ruining-assholes-' Yuna says [OOC] 'we can't change the nature of certain players' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'we don't ENFORCE RP, which is a median of freedom people have here' Yuna says [OOC] 'personally, however' Yuna says [OOC] 'if I run an RP event, I will literally protect it against railroading' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'but I have the trans command... people don't usually have the liberty to do that' Yuna says [OOC] 'but I try my best to monitor stuff like that, and help' You say [OOC] 'What can RPers here on WD expect in the next few months? Any plans?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'm working on a system now, that I can log RP, at people's request' Yuna says [OOC] 'and protect it from a remote system, using minbot' You say [OOC] 'Is The Rok really going to hit WD?' Yuna says [OOC] 'well... Niss and I are going to be running a long haul series of events ' Krogenar listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'the RP inititive project we're working on is guaranteed to be the biggest jolt of RP we ever had, since alot of our codework has moved along, and crashes are much rarer :)' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'll be activly pushing Minli's campaign along.' You say [OOC] 'Are these RP events already scripted out? How much will 'player input' affect the course of the story?' Yuna says [OOC] 'which more, or less, runs parallel to Nisstyre's storyline, which will eventually intersect' Yuna says [OOC] 'in my events, players usually determine the outcome with their actions.' You say [OOC] 'I apologize for cross-questioning... :/' Yuna says [OOC] 'there will be some that the event is sealed as to promote the next peice of the plot' You nod.. Krogenar listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'but under usual circumstances, the players direct and redirect' Yuna says [OOC] 'for example' Yuna says [OOC] 'when I had the event with minli' Yuna says [OOC] 'regarding the 5 suspension crates' Yuna says [OOC] 'the outcome was entirely to the players' You say [OOC] 'I remember.' Yuna says [OOC] 'wether they decided to give the crates back or not, or even find them at all' Yuna says [OOC] 'since most were recovered' Yuna says [OOC] 'the plot continued along the 'good outcome' line' You say [OOC] 'Isn't there a missing crate?' Yuna says [OOC] 'yup, and that crate has been accounted for as missing in the story' Yuna says [OOC] 'and a part of the... plot will degrade beacuse of it' Yuna says [OOC] 'action-reaction' You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. Yuna says [OOC] 'reply invervieing... busy' You cackle gleefully.. Yuna says [OOC] 'damn prefix' You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Can I ask you about the inflation problem?' Yuna says [OOC] 'of course, you can ask anything you wish' The lightning has stopped.. Yuna says 'one second' Yuna says 'lemme take care of those weather strings' Yuna says [OOC] 'ok, go on :)' You say [OOC] 'I've heard people say that PHousing, and Airships were part of a plan to take money out of the economy.' Yuna says [OOC] 'yea' You say [OOC] 'Is it working?' Yuna says [OOC] 'we... had a serious problem with over about 5-6 billion platinum being wrongly created over a period of 8 months of evasive cheating and bug abuse' Yuna says [OOC] 'the economy is almost ready to be restored to funtioning order' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'as well, the lockouts on such things as runs helps the hoards of eq (which in calculation 20% is duped)' You say [OOC] 'Whoa... 20 percent duped?!' Yuna says [OOC] 'you'd be surprised just how much eq shows officially duped on minbot.' Yuna says [OOC] 'very surprised' Yuna says [OOC] 'the ratio is 1:4 usually' Yuna says [OOC] 'high-class hero eq, anyway.' Yuna says [OOC] 'especially the stuff like shimmies' You say [OOC] 'What is your opinion on the 'Older Hero's Have Too Much EQ' debate?' Yuna says [OOC] 'be depleted due to decay, pfile loss, and wipes when we find dupers.' You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say [OOC] 'So you can track the EQ... but the people who did it?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I can do both' Yuna says [OOC] 'so long as eq falls under a certain timeframe' Yuna says [OOC] 'though the 'timestamp' of eq is constant' Yuna says [OOC] 'the 'history' of the object, like past users, isn't an old-school addition' You say [OOC] 'Ok... here's another question.' You say [OOC] 'How would you describe the PK situation in WD?' Yuna says [OOC] 'in all honesty, pk is healthy, though wimpy should be removed and cleave should see a change to NOT kill off the users arm and weapon.' You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Is there any class that is truly unbalanced, positive or negative?' Yuna says [OOC] 'frankly the classes are rather ok. Except striders who totally ..fuck other people, and the liches that ... do need something to speed the 16% and lower system. Both of which I am workin on.' You say [OOC] 'You think striders are overpowered?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I think the classes are well balanced, though people prefer to use certain classes due to percieved super-advantages :P' Yuna says [OOC] 'I think they are fine, Cleave just needs to be tweaked,' Krogenar looks sad.. You shrug.. You smile happily.. Yuna says [OOC] 'gimping a character over one simple command isn't worth it' Yuna says [OOC] 'no character should -have- to die or -have- to get a certain spell to work effectively, especially one simply possessed by one class :)' You say [OOC] 'You know best.' You say [OOC] 'Ok... not back to YOU...' You say [OOC] 'What's your day usually like?' Yuna says [OOC] 'encompassing the activity I do irl as well?' You say [OOC] 'As an imm, what do you spend most of your time doing?' Yuna says [OOC] 'well, my worklist, has never seen a day that is less than 50-jobs long. I usually focus on one of the large, or long existing problems, and jump to important small ones, or mortal concerns when necessary' Yuna says [OOC] 'sorta like, working on building a car' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'but jumping to do the dishes in between' You say [OOC] 'Are you interupted often?' Yuna says [OOC] 'yes. but usually it's a legitamate reason.' You say [OOC] 'Have you ever been an immortal on another mud?' Yuna says [OOC] 'many' You say [OOC] 'Which ones?' You say [OOC] 'What were they like?' Yuna says [OOC] 'Cyclus, Deadly Temptation, Fallen Dream, The Core, Aavandar, Lands of Legend, Safekeep, Magic the Gathering Mud, Planescape, Chronica, Chronodream, among a few' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'm employed on a number of muds that request me to be a think tank.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I help friends with others' Yuna says [OOC] 'I have along history with muds in general, as well as the mud community' You say [OOC] 'Wow... how old are you in real life?' Yuna says [OOC] '22 on the 25th of october' You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'So, they hire out your brain...' You say [OOC] 'For when they need ideas, etc.' Yuna says [OOC] 'more or less.' You say [OOC] 'What made you settle on WD?' Yuna says [OOC] 'the concept and the staff.' Yuna says [OOC] ' wd has exponential potenital' You say [OOC] 'That's a powerful statement.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I know it is' You say [OOC] 'What makes you say that?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I've seen muds with wd's potential rise to pbases of 400.' You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say [OOC] 'Is that a lot or a little?' You say [OOC] 'You mean 400 players online at once?' Yuna says [OOC] 'a flexible, malleable concept, with a dedicated owner, and the fact that it dosen't infringe too strongly on the aspect of the players' Yuna says [OOC] 'wd has it's values straight' You smile happily.. Yuna says [OOC] 'that is shown with the constant growth.' You say [OOC] 'What are those values?' Yuna says [OOC] 'always try to improve upon yourself.' Krogenar nods, listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'never think something is impossible' Yuna says [OOC] 'hunt down and crush cheaters like the vermin they are' Yuna says [OOC] 'have fun playing the game, and lots of it.' Yuna says [OOC] 'wd also will not do the grand mistake many other muds do' You say [OOC] 'Which is what?' Yuna says [OOC] 'punish the players as a body.' Yuna says [OOC] 'one big big big error many muds make is to 'twink' and 'gimp' eq' You say [OOC] 'I don't understand..' You say [OOC] 'Twink? Gimp?' Yuna says [OOC] 'like... how an idea over the immstaff waved in once, saying to remove all the current standard tch eq (altogether), in favor of weaker eq which would be forcibly replaced' You wince in agony.. You say [OOC] 'That wouldn't go over well.' Yuna says [OOC] 'to twink is to render a command a class or player RELIES on, that is legitamate, into something that is mere useless' Yuna says [OOC] 'to gimp' Yuna says [OOC] 'is to eliminate objects by de-rezzing it's presence in the building procedure... like' Yuna says [OOC] 'if I suddenly take vnum 18213' Yuna says [OOC] 'the elvenkind cloak' Krogenar nods, listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'and strip it of it's ability' Yuna says [OOC] 'then order a trade in for a weaker, new standard hero run cloak' Yuna says [OOC] 'that is a gimp' Yuna says [OOC] 'it's one thing to force the oldschool eq out, that's punishing players' Krogenar nods, listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'non-forcible replacement is a better answer' Yuna says [OOC] 'and can allow the mud to back up from a 'dead end' and try to take a different turn' You say [OOC] 'How would that work?' You say [OOC] 'Decaying EQ?' Yuna says [OOC] 'EEEK! NO. NO. NO.' Yuna says [OOC] 'decaying eq is death' Yuna says [OOC] 'death evil death evilness' You nod.. Krogenar listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'making old eq decay selectively is punishing players' Yuna says [OOC] 'it's more like, keep the old elvenkind resets in the game,' Yuna says [OOC] 'but' Yuna says [OOC] 'have the runs contain different eq' Yuna says [OOC] 'which isn't as powerful, or has differnt variations of power' Yuna says [OOC] 'the old eq rises in value' Yuna says [OOC] 'and becomes a trade commodity' You say [OOC] 'So the old timers don't feel cheated.' Yuna says [OOC] 'precicely' You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. Yuna says [OOC] 'it's a way of reinforcing the economy, by enticing the oldtimers to relinquish the oldstyle eq to the newer players' Yuna says [OOC] 'eventually it will trickle down'  You say [OOC] 'I feel better - not that I have great EQ, mind you. but that makes very good sense to me.' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'contrary to popular belief, we're not here to fuck you over, I have moved to strike such actions in the past, and I wouldn't let it happen now.' You say [OOC] 'Considering what you've told me of your background in mudding, have you ever read Bartle's paper on mud personality types?' You say [OOC] 'I imagine you would...' You smile at her.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I'm not sure, but the name dosen't ring a bell' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'd have to say no.' You say [OOC] 'He describes four different types of players... Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, Spades' You say [OOC] 'Socializers, PKillers, Achievers, and Explorers?' You say [OOC] 'Respectively... interesting article. You would enjoy it. I'll post a link.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'd probably have to read the paper in order to classify myself into any of those categories' Yuna says [OOC] 'sure note it to me when you have the tiem' You say [OOC] 'Let me rephrase the question then... how balanced do you think WD is, in terms of PK and RP?' Yuna says [OOC] 'people say the pk players don't rp. I am living proof otherwise.' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I am a pkiller, and I rp.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I am a pkiller, and I've seen other pkillers rp.' You say [OOC] 'Are you a rarity, in that respect?' Yuna says [OOC] 'yes, I'd have to say Pkillers that rp are rare.' Yuna says [OOC] 'though most don't, but that's pk. Pk isn't rp-sterile, but it's not made in the best interest of RP' You nod.. You say [OOC] 'What do you do IRL? A student?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I have two jobs, and one job-hobby' You say [OOC] 'What does Yuna do for money IRL? :)' Yuna says [OOC] 'Off and on, I work night shifts in a hotel, to help a family friend' Yuna says [OOC] 'for money?' Krogenar nods, listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I work for the Blue-level Federal Bureau of Deployment and Finances.' Krogenar blinks.. You say [OOC] 'Do you carry a gun?' Yuna says [OOC] 'no, I'm not required to carry a side arm :)' You say [OOC] 'but would you?' You smile happily.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I am cleared for one, if we fall under martial law.' You cackle gleefully.. Yuna says [OOC] 'but I work behind a desk' You poke her in the ribs.. Yuna says [OOC] 'so a firearm isn't part of my equipment, yet :P' You say [OOC] 'Ok... I have a tough question for you.' Yuna says [OOC] 'sure' You say [OOC] 'Considering what you've told me about your experience....' You say [OOC] '.. and you've displayed (in my opinion) a lot of common sense, in mud admin...' You say [OOC] 'What does WD need to improve upon?' You say [OOC] 'What are our problem areas? Start with our strengths, though, if you wish.' Yuna says [OOC] 'It -really- -really- needs to crack down on what I dub 'anti-players'' Krogenar listens eagerly.. You say [OOC] 'What are they like?' Yuna says [OOC] 'for respectiveness sake, we have players here that pose constand problems to other players through attitude, conduct, and otherwise morals.' Yuna says [OOC] 'whiners, bitchers, abusers, people that have nothing better to do than start or fan flames on channels or with playesr' You say [OOC] 'player abuse?' Yuna says [OOC] 'exactly.' You say [OOC] 'And how can that be handled?' Yuna says [OOC] 'by kicking their pansy asses :P' You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Any other areas of improvement?' Yuna says [OOC] 'tighter crossport security' You say [OOC] 'You lost me there.' Yuna says [OOC] 'we've been having problems with off the wall builders lately' You say [OOC] 'You mean the building port?' Yuna says [OOC] 'and build-abuse' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'crossporting is the type of setup wd has' Krogenar listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'ports that run parallel and copy over each other on command' Yuna says [OOC] 'build on the other port, and it won't occur here until we command it' You say [OOC] 'So Areas need to see better quality control?' Yuna says [OOC] 'however, certian builders continually insist on abusing their priviledges' Yuna says [OOC] 'quality and content are different aspects' You say [OOC] 'Overpowered weapons? That sort of thing?' Yuna says [OOC] 'wd's areas usually are of adequate quality to begin with' You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'it's the invasive content that we need to kill ' You say [OOC] 'Can you explain that? Invasive?' Yuna says [OOC] 'more like... purposeful abuse like, platinum bugs, weapons that deal over 502352 damage ect' You say [OOC] 'Some builders have done that intentionally?' Yuna says [OOC] 'it happens.' Yuna says [OOC] 'all too often' Yuna says [OOC] 'to be 'accidents'' Yuna says [OOC] 'a person can only be stupid so many times before it's no longer a fluke' You say [OOC] 'Ok... now something better, more positive.' Yuna says [OOC] 'hehe' You say [OOC] 'What's the _best_ thing about WD? Your favorite aspect of WD?' Yuna says [OOC] 'the fact that the rp here is flexible, even in the first time I entered WD, I was able to slide seamlessly into the unfolding rp of the game without problem.' Yuna says [OOC] 'it took effort, but it happened' Yuna says [OOC] 'a rarity in Muds.' You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Is there any question you wish I had asked you? That I haven't?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'm not sure really... ' Yuna says [OOC] 'I wouldn't know what I'd ask myself if I interviewed me' You say [OOC] 'Do you have any questions for me?' Yuna says [OOC] 'heh, this is unexpected.' Yuna says [OOC] 'off the top of my head, not really.' You cackle gleefully.. You nod.. Yuna says [OOC] 'but you can ask me anything pretty much' Yuna says [OOC] 'I'm not one to censure stuff. :P' You say [OOC] 'Oh! Boxers or Briefs?' You say [OOC] 'Which do you prefer?' Yuna says [OOC] 'panties, thank you.' You say [OOC] '(someone asked me to ask you that)' Your cheeks are burning.. Yuna says [OOC] ':P' You say 'Thong or Grandma Style?' You cackle gleefully.. Yuna says [OOC] 'lol you freak' Your mouth is parched.. You say [OOC] 'There are some freaks out there who need to know!' Yuna says [OOC] 'say neither, I usually wear just, I dunno what the 'title' for them is, just generic underwear, really' You jump in the air and give a BIG high five to Yuna!. You say [OOC] 'Good answer... keep 'em guessing.' You smile at her.. Yuna says [OOC] 'hah' You say [OOC] 'Anything else you want to add, before we're done?' Yuna says [OOC] 'hehe, I expected this to be longer ^-^ :)' You say [OOC] 'I think I kept the pace up, yes?' Yuna says [OOC] 'but I guess not.' You say [OOC] 'I try to keep things moving along. You want to spend more time?' You say [OOC] 'Fine by me!' Yuna says [OOC] 'heh, I have all night' You say [OOC] 'Can you tell me about any memorable mud experiences? On WD or elsewhere?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I can sit here and watch minbot for trouble' You say [OOC] 'Anything that stands out?' Yuna says [OOC] 'hell you didn't even notice I took care of a multiplayer and fixed a room typo while we were talking.' Yuna says [OOC] 'memorable... hmm' You say [OOC] 'You did all that?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I can edit, delete, add or move anything I like from this room, with a command called 'at' and 'edit'' Yuna says [OOC] 'hmm' Yuna says [OOC] 'memorable' Krogenar listens.. Yuna says [OOC] 'that's a good question, but the most memorable would have to be when a mud a friend and I, now closed, hit a pbase of 200.' Yuna says [OOC] 'that was a milestone for us.' You say [OOC] 'What was that like? Did you celebrate?' Yuna says [OOC] 'yea, ... well we didnt' pop champaigne or anything, but we were really happy. ' You say [OOC] 'What is WD's pbase?' Yuna says [OOC] '50 pbase average is a stellar achievement, 100 is... incredible, 200 is godlike :P' Yuna says [OOC] 'one second' You say [OOC] 'I mean,,, when you say pbase... do you mean, the number of people online at ONCE, or the number of players TOTAL - on and offline.' !!Minbot>WdCurr-ave>PlrOline> 56.2>>10.12.2001. Yuna says [OOC] '56.2' You say [OOC] 'Average number of players then, at any given time.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I mean, average online at one time' Yuna says [OOC] 'yup' Yuna says [OOC] 'counting players or pfiles is non accurate' You say [OOC] 'How does the pbase here on WD, compare to other muds?' Yuna says [OOC] 'for example' Yuna says [OOC] 'wd has 46,700+ pfiles.' Yuna says [OOC] 'Wd's pbase is something of pride.' Yuna says [OOC] 'we are the biggest RoT on the net.' Yuna says [OOC] 'at least, we're the biggest rot on mudconnector' Yuna says [OOC] 'I should specify'  You say [OOC] '.. have you ever wiped someone?' Yuna says [OOC] '.. is that a trick question? :P' You shake your head.. Yuna says [OOC] 'I've wiped over 200 people.' Yuna says [OOC] 'denied alot more :P' You say [OOC] 'How does WD's pbase differ from other muds, besides just size?' Yuna says [OOC] 'it's much more volatile.' Yuna says [OOC] 'I digress from saying anything more.' You say [OOC] 'Volatile? You mean people deleting madly...' Yuna says [OOC] 'nah, people deleteing madly is just stupid' You nod.. You say [OOC] 'What's your favorite type of character to RP?' Yuna says [OOC] 'Well, I don't usually like to rp leading characters.' Yuna says [OOC] 'though I do for the most part.' You say [OOC] 'Well, do you have a favorite class?' Yuna says [OOC] 'I like exotic characters, truly unique, in apperance, socio-ernamic, and demeanour.' Yuna says [OOC] 'on wd?' You say [OOC] 'Anywhere..' Yuna says [OOC] 'well I'm partial to a Neuromancer, but that's a unique part of a mud I create' Yuna says [OOC] 'but I like Priests' Yuna says [OOC] 'on wd' Krogenar looks at Yuna slyly..

You say 'Thanks for the followup interview...'. You say 'First question...'. You say 'I've had a few people who want to know more about minbot.'. Yuna says 'What did they want to know'. You say 'Is it this omniscient 'thing'?'. You say 'Some people thinks its this little magic wand thing you carry...'. You say 'Explain what it does for people.'. Yuna says 'nah, minbot is an actual program that runs on a computer I own.'. You tell Yuna 'Did you write it?'. Yuna says 'it sits as a background program, and syphons every bit of data that goes through wd'. You OOC 'Going off OOC for a bit, into quiet mode. Interviewing Yuna.'. OOC channel is now OFF.. From now on, you will only hear says and emotes.. Yuna says 'No, Minbot was written by JF and a friend of his, Erik.'. Yuna says 'I write operational scripts for it though'. Yuna says 'which are sets of logic-commands that the bot can operate with'. You say 'Are they imms here?'. Yuna says 'nope.' You say 'Are they the original creators of the mud platform?'. You say 'RoT?'. Yuna says 'mud platform? nope'. You say 'Just someone you know from another mud?'. Yuna says 'Rot was transormed from ROM by russ taylor and a bunch.'. Yuna says 'no, JF is my brother'. You nod.. Yuna says 'Erik is his friend :)'. Yuna says 'Minbot started off as a controlling entity for my own mud'. Yuna says 'but it wasn't a very big mud, and they wanted to see what minbot was capable of doing it'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Yuna says 'So they took a look at the '. You say [OOC] 'Controlling?'. You say 'And what does RoT stand for?'. Krogenar waits.. Yuna says 'Realm of Thoth.'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Yuna says 'Minbot tracks all pertinent information on the game, ESPECIALLY loads, sets, pfile, and area information.'. You say 'Is there any information it DOES NOT track?'. . Yuna says 'well, it can technically track anything, but there's a huuuuuge amount of information it dosen't'. Yuna says 'conversations, tells, ect ect.'. You nod.. Yuna says 'but it does pick up tells ect, bearing certain words.'. You say 'Ok... I had a VERY good question for you.'. Yuna says 'sure.'. Krogenar backs up.. You say 'So, it can do a filter type search.'. Yuna says 'it's always filtering, '. You say 'So you could set it to monitor tells, and says, etc... and if someone says 'Yuna' - you'd know?'. Yuna says 'yep'. You say 'So you do track that...'. You nod.. Yuna says 'yup'. You say 'Ok... on to the question.'. You say 'In our last interview, you pointed out that there are 'anti-mud' players...'. Yuna says 'it was necessary a year ago, when imms were very... disrespected. Lies were abundant.'. Krogenar backs up.. You say 'How did you handle that?'. You say 'And what kinds of lies?'. Yuna says 'one question at a time man'. Yuna chuckles politely.. . Yuna says 'I can't answer each question to the fullest if you bombard me :)'. Yuna says 'ask one.'. You say 'Sorry... just when I'm ready to go to the next question... you bring something up thats interesting.'. You say 'What kinds of lies?'. Yuna says 'well for one, there were players saying they were imms, threatening other players, imms spreading generic lies about imms, like, 'they did this' or 'they said it wasn't against the rules''. Yuna says 'to escape punishment'. Yuna says 'in one instance'. Krogenar listens.. Yuna says 'when a member of the immstaff was conducting an investigation on duped eq'. Yuna says 'and the person suspected was supposed to remain frozen'. Yuna says 'the suspect went to the higher ups, saying that the investigator was 'done''. Yuna says 'the player ended up getting unfrozen'. Yuna says 'and their eq 'disappeared'.'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Yuna says 'presumably to their alts'. You say 'But you can track alts?'. Yuna says 'that is the day, my brother basically said 'fuck that' and made a 'sweep' inclusion into minbot.'. Yuna says 'yep'. Yuna says 'Minbot keeps a list of all the players and sockets.'. You nod.. Yuna says 'especially shared characters'. Yuna says 'we do it simply to know who has access to what, since shared cahracter basically have no rights'. You say 'One character, multiple users, right?'. Yuna nods.. Yuna says 'exactly'. You nod.. You say 'Ok... so the change to minbot helped to stop that?'. Yuna says 'I'll put it this way.'. Krogenar listens.. Yuna says 'we've not had a problem with loaded eq, duping, set characters since'. Yuna says 'and people now know better than to lie about what imms said.'. Yuna says 'frankly, '. Yuna says 'it makes our lives easier'. Yuna says 'and the game is more secure in taht manner.'. You say 'And minbot logs all this, in a file someplace... so even if you're not around, you could check?'. Yuna says 'yea, I can access these files remotely, by telnetting to my own computer.'. You nod.. You say 'Ok... next question.'. You say 'In our last interview, you pointed out that there are 'anti-mud' players...'. Yuna says 'yup'. You say 'and how you enjoy getting rid of them.'. Yuna says 'I don't ENJOY getting rid of anyone...'. Yuna says 'but it, at times, is necessary'. Yuna smirks.. You nod.. You say 'I've heard of some immortal staffs that use an invisible system to punish problem players...'. You say 'By adding lag to them, invisibly lowering stats, etc...'. You say 'Does WD do that? Or would you consider doing that?'. Yuna says 'hmm, that's a little out of contention'. Yuna says 'changing stats on the fly is impossible.'. You say 'The 'problem player' would just not advance as quickly, or hopefully become discouraged... and leave on their own.'. Yuna says 'it would mess up the pfile, if done incorrectly, and it's VERY easy to do it incorrectly.'. You say 'Or change their XP earned...'. Yuna says 'xp earned is not something we can edit.'. Yuna says 'fortunately'. Watch your feet, Yuna is juggling granite boulders.. Yuna imagines imms getting all the skills then setting their xp to 1k per level. You say 'So a system like that is not possible?'. A cool breeze refreshes you.. Yuna shakes her head.. Yuna says 'first of all, any time I see a set character in the logs, and when someone sets, all the staff can see it.'. Yuna says 'sorry'. Yuna says 'most'. Yuna says 'of the staff can see it'. Yuna says 'setting stats is a very delicate procedure'. You say 'Does the pfile have to be opened directly, as a text file?'. Yuna says 'no, it can be done online'. You nod.. Yuna says 'but the pfile activity itself can disrupt setting and produce anomalous results'. Yuna says 'like negative mana and hp bases'. Yuna says 'negative trains and practices'. Yuna says 'if someone was set, they'd know it immediately.'. You say 'Ok... now an RP question...'. Yuna says 'sure'. You say 'Where is the RP story going right now?'. Yuna says 'by the way, feel free to ask anything, I'm not much into censorship :P'. Yuna says 'well, it's frozen until we can copybin and copyarea :P'. Yuna chuckles politely.. Yuna says 'niss and flaern are working on faction code, atm so I can't do much without building.'. Yuna says 'my own story will take a mostly political-talking view until we can copyarea'. You say 'Anything?'. Yuna says 'which is why I offered to answer questions about my characters or points of my story'. You say 'Ok... then let me ask you about Minli.'. Yuna says 'sure.'. You say 'What's so disturbing about her?'. +---------------------| Waterdeep 'City Of Splendors' |---------------------+. Name: Minli . Level: 101 . Age: 25 . Race: human . Class: wizard . Clan: tpempire . Description:. A face that was once filled with happiness and innocence. has formed into one of fear and confusion. Once blue skin. now is a deep shade of purple, eyes of pink, now are eyes. of grey. Though her body is unchanged from her odd self,. Whatever being, something changed this once shining creature into. something different, something darker, something less naive.. Minli remains Minli nonethe less. . Four arms, each with three fingered hands, antannae, and tendrils. which fall from smooth slender thighs, ending in two toed feet.. Fae wings, which seem to be etherial in existance.. An absolutley beautiful body, smooth complexion and tender,. almost sexual demeanour.. Minli last logged on at Thu Oct 18 06:04:55 2001. Last on: 0 days 17 hours 28 minutes ago. . +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+. Yuna says 'disturbing?'. Yuna has pulled Minli from the pattern!. Yuna snuggles up to Minli.. You say 'Well, is she an insect of some kind?'. Minli slowly fades from existence.. Yuna has released back to the Pattern.. Yuna snickers softly.. Yuna says 'did you see her picture?'. Yuna says 'dosen't look like an insect to me :)'. You shake your head.. You say 'Where would I see the picture?'. Yuna says 'dark.angel.nali.tripod.com/nym.gif'. Yuna says 'why would you say she's disturbing? :)'. You say 'Well... the four arms, the fingers, etc.'. You say 'Was she always that way?'. Yuna says 'indeed.'. Yuna says 'minli is a unique creature created by the lifestream for an unknown reason by an unknown circumstance.'. You say 'Did you draw that picture?'. You say 'Created by the LifeStream?'. Yuna nods.. You say 'How does she figure in, with Sephiroth?'. Yuna says 'yep, created by the lifestream.'. Yuna says 'That is a question you'd have to ask her'. Yuna grins evilly.. Yuna says 'but minli is a very ... different race.'. You say 'What can you tell me about NyTek?'. Yuna says 'Nytek is pretty much, the source of about 80% of the technology that was implemented into WD.'. Yuna says 'from building the cannon, to makou gas lamps, to even a part of the technology used by Vector'. Yuna says 'she was captured during a war, in the past.'. You say 'Are all the members of NyTek like Minli?'. Yuna says 'nope'. Yuna says 'Nytek has many members from a few clans.'. Yuna says 'Toby is a Halforc for example.'. You nod.. You say 'I noticed in his recent roleplay notes.'. You say 'How was he recruited?'. Yuna says 'It was a matter of right place at the right time. It happened during the rp event with the crates.'. Yuna says 'oocly, I noticed Toby had the TP flag on'. You nod.. Yuna says '(something I look for, I take good care to see what nationality people boast)'. You say 'What will the faction coding have in it?'. Yuna says 'and icly, she asked toby to escort her to zozo, since she had no strongarm and has physically weak at the time'. Yuna smirks.. Yuna says 'that is a surprise, I will not violate'. Yuna says 'but you will be pleased at it's contents.'. Yuna says 'I guarantee'. Yuna says 'I would also suggest that the pax start showing up... '. Yuna pokes you in the ribs.. Yuna says 'many seething eyes are looking at westbridge'. Yuna chuckles politely.. You shrug.. You say 'Doing what I can..'. Mystra slaps every teenager in highschool here with a frozen flounder. Get a life.. Mystra has restored you.. Yuna says ':)'. You say 'how could someone take westbridge from us? There's no code in yet... right?'. Yuna says 'the code will be implemented onto this port soon enough'. Yuna says 'and I have a feeling the day it is'. Yuna says 'you will have a war on your hands.'. You say 'So... it will be implemented, and the Pax will lose WB that day?'. You frown disapprovingly.. Yuna says 'heh, frankly I think that many factions will start warring just for the extra land...'. Yuna says 'no, I don't guarantee they'll lose anything... or anyone for that matter'. You shrug.. You say 'eh. Just a game.'. You say 'If I have time to organize, maybe we'll have a chance.'. Yuna says 'I hope you do.'. You bow deeply.. Yuna smiles happily.. You say 'Well, sleep awaits!'. You wave.. Yuna says 'you have my support'. Yuna smiles happily.. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Yuna says 'will there be a third?'. You say 'Thank you.'. You nod.. You say 'If you'd like.'. Yuna says 'I await the day'. You smile happily.. You wave goodbye to Yuna.. The Isle of Mystra's Dance. As you suddenly appear upon the isle of Mystra's dance you kiss the. sandy earth as you are finally glad to be away from the ocean, that had. flooded your ship. You wonder how you suddenly got here from where you. sank... you had been miles from any land... Well, anyways, you see miles. of palm trees waving the wind and beautiful shells adorning the beach.... though the shell are all in the shape of what seem to be nine stars....
