Changes: Departing, dying, giving! · on 08/30/2016 11:55 PM CDT 1402
The following changes are now live in Prime and Plat (TF to follow when we're sure it won't break the world):

Changes to DEPART

  • If you type just DEPART, the system will now automatically default to the following based on your current favors: DEPART FULL (all items and coins retained) if you have 3+ favors, DEPART ITEMS (all items retained, no coins) if you 2 favors, and regular ol' DEPART at 1 or less favors.
  • You may also now DEPART GRAVE to get the standard 1-favor depart if you currently have more than 1 favor.

Death’s Grip

  • You will now keep hold of any items you had in your hands at the time of your death! This is standard, and there is nothing you need to do to activate it.
  • If you have a valid STOW container for the item you were holding when you died, that item will go into that container instead of staying in your hand.

Changes to Give

The system will now prompt you for a confirmation when trying to GIVE a registered item to another player. It will also display a reminder that you can SHOW you valuable items rather than risk losing them by handing them to someone else.

Upcoming discussion: The Policy Rewrite

Some players have been helping me copy all of our POLICY and NEWS articles over to Elanthipedia, where each article will have its own page. This project should be finished soon. (Feel free to help; follow the template Kythryn and Mistanna have set up and get these pages built, so we can get to work!)

https://elanthipedia.play.net/Category:News

https://elanthipedia.play.net/Policy_command

As we prepare to dive into the Policy updates, I invite you all to make suggestions on the DISCUSSION pages of these articles. Each and every item will be reviewed, and I welcome any and all feedback before we begin making official changes to The Rules.

The discussion on the individual articles is not going to happen on the forums. It is to happen on these DISCUSSION pages only. Respect each other and offer constructive suggestions. Follow the instructions provided, and sign your comments. If you don’t know how, ask a Moderator!
