IC News travels slowly in Mizahar. Fortunately there is a constant stream of news from around campfires, from caravan to caravan and from merchants to merchants. Within this forum lies the best of the best of this talk. Also, within this forum, OOC news from the staff and players can be found. This forum requires all posts to be 'approved' by a Founder before they are displayed. So if you post within, be patient. Your post did display - it simply will not show to everyone until approved as actual 'news'. Please keep all Introductions, Status Updates, and various other discussions in their appropriate forums and leave this area for game news!

Anti-spam measures

Hey everyone,

to combat the outrageous amount of spammers, I've implemented a ban on links (the url bbcode) for new accounts. So far it's based on post number (ten). Depending on whether spammers get aggressive in response, I may also implement a limit based on registration dates.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause with new CS. I'll be adding "thread" and "post" bbcodes to generate links that will work even for accounts that are under link embargo. Thank you for your understanding!

And if you are a spammer and are reading this, go buy your own viagra. Chances are, you're the one in need of it.
Tarot's thread tickets: sold out. Not accepting any more threads for the time being unless I promised you one. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Graders Please Note :
As Ball is getting closer and closer to maxing out Pyken as a skill, I would like to request that in places where Ball is not doing enough to constitute Pyken XP if Pyken technique lores could be issued instead.

Examples of proper XP level for Pyken would be: Ball developing or refining his technique by adding new thing against an actual moving target, not a dummy.

The use of basic skills alone are not enough to accomplish XP at Ball's current level of Pyken.

Thank you.

I will be handling all Ball related posts on Mondays @ 1800 my time *

They are trying to sell me XBOX games in my PMs now. Dirty rotten spammers.

Let us know if you see them hitting any other approaches. I think they've thoroughly got our coder's attention and hes plotting revenge.
