Alien13UFO: hey, aren't you...... ** MinotaurMage enters. Alien13UFO: damn, whats your name again Alien13UFO: hey Minitaur MinotaurMage: Hello everybody, I hope I did not miss much Joshwar: Josh Ginter, the Warlock of the Titans Alien13UFO: i just got here a min ago Alien13UFO: oh yeah Alien13UFO: I don't really go to 3do that much any more except for my e-mail Joshwar: I was here for a while just waiting. Alien13UFO: when does the officially start? MinotaurMage: Hmm. Wish I could give a good reason why I stay there, but I like the feeling of the "Community" MinotaurMage: Right now actually. There aren''t any designated topics of discussion MinotaurMage: Hey, Josh. Hope you got my cmail ok ** Alien13UFO exits. Joshwar: I did. ** ksummers enters. MinotaurMage: Well, hopefully it did not take too long to do the correct patch thing. Wierd how that is different... ksummers: hi MinotaurMage: Hello. I'm taking a transcript of this meeting. Hope nobody minds... ksummers: Josh - you here? ksummers: I don't mind Joshwar: Hi K. You said to tell you when I start a new MM6 game to tell you when. Well, I started one yesterday and I'm not going to cheat once. ksummers: lol - sounds good' Joshwar: I don't mind. ksummers: what's your party? MinotaurMage: Yeah, I see him listed...Should see a few more come here to the meeting hopefully MinotaurMage: Party? I assume you're talking about MM6 ksummers: ya, I was asking Josh what his MM6 party is ** Alien13UFO enters. MinotaurMage: Ah. My first party was the default MinotaurMage: I think the optimal party is the best way to play though ksummers: mine too, and the 2nd one too actually Joshwar: Silvie the Cleric, Fett the Sorcerer, Toni(a) the Cleric, and Josh the Sorcerer. Alien13UFO: sorry bout that ** lazysod enters. ksummers: if I play again, I will also go with 2 Clerics and 2 Sorcerers ksummers: hey Lazy! Alien13UFO: I think I clicked something. MinotaurMage: I had 2 Druids, and 2 Sorcerers for my magic MM6 party lazysod: -grin- hello all.. hello K.. good to finalyl see you again.. ksummers: Josh, who's Toni? ksummers: yes, Lazy, it IS good to see you again too! Joshwar: Some girl in 5th grade. ksummers: lol Alien13UFO: so what games you guys playin now or are anticipating? Joshwar: MM6 for me and HoMM3 lazysod: alien: d2 ofcourse - waiting for stonekeep 2 ksummers: I'm looking forward to the new game that's supposed to be like M&M, but MP MinotaurMage: I still have D2 running at the moment...I'll continue in the Sanctuary ksummers: Dave, do you know anything about it? lazysod: k: yeah.. what have you been doing lately? you've missed much ksummers: the Sanctuary? MinotaurMage: Only that it's supposed to be ONLY multiplayer Alien13UFO: I don't have that game :( heard its awesome though MinotaurMage: Arcane Sanctuary ksummers: Lazy - been REALLY busy with work ksummers: disappointed that I haven't been continuing my POLLs Alien13UFO: I can't wait for Command And Conquer: Red Alert 2 to come out ksummers: ALien, are you a 3do comm member? lazysod: lol .. i miss the polls too - but work goes for pleasure i'm afraid.. i had three really easy weeks at work and spend roughly 30 hours per workweek online ;) MinotaurMage: ? For a moment, I thought that game was already out, but was thinking of the older C&C ksummers: wow, how nice for you lazysod: could use it too - the weeks before that were too stressy. ksummers: I will try to get the POLL thing going again after Oct 15th ksummers: what have I missed? Alien13UFO: yeah I am a comm member but don't go there anymore ksummers: oh, just didn't recognize you MinotaurMage: Not much on the 3DO front Alien13UFO: maybe I will when mm9 comes out but until then, its just a waist of my time ksummers: I like to play MP Heroes too, so it's a great place for me to meet up with people Joshwar: What did I miss? I'm trying to patch MM6. MinotaurMage: I'm not sure what to expect from MM9, but Legends of M&M is not leaving me optimistic ksummers: don't patch! Joshwar: Why? ksummers: ask Dave MinotaurMage: NO!!! Don't use the bug exploits! ksummers: why isn't Ledgends leaving you optimistic? Joshwar: What? MinotaurMage: You could just patch to version 1.1 Alien13UFO: I know for a fact that legends will NOT work on my comp ksummers: why not alien? Alien13UFO: I am hopefully getting a new comp for christmas though Joshwar: That's what I'm doing at the moment. Version 1.1 MinotaurMage: Just the way they changed the orientation of the game to ONLY multiplayer when initiially they had plans for a single player capability as well Alien13UFO: cuz my computer is too old lazysod: -grins- i'm guessing LoMM will need some pretty hefty system.. i'm afraid that even my machine may need some upgrading before m&m 9.. ksummers: ya, that's too bad ksummers: do you know when it's supposed to be out ksummers: (I hadn't heard the MP only thing, btw) Alien13UFO: its a 96 and doesn't even have a 3d accelerator or a pentium 2! ksummers: wow, dump the dinosaur ;) ksummers: brb MinotaurMage: Hmmm. I'm using my P-233 to play D2 Multiplayer. It's ok, as long as I can take the lag... Joshwar: Aren't I supposed to do 1.1 then 1.2? or just 1.1? MinotaurMage: It's yo9ur call on whether to patch to 1.2 Josh...It DOES put in the dungeon bugs, but I think the fixes are worth it lazysod: dave: doing d2 multiplay on a p233? how much memory is in the thing? MinotaurMage: 128K lazysod: -lol - i guess that would be M? MinotaurMage: Yeah, 1.1 first and then 1.2 Josh MinotaurMage: Wierd how doing 1.0 to 1.2 causes an error MinotaurMage: On the Dragon Edition anyway ksummers: back Joshwar: What are the dungeon bugs anyway? MinotaurMage: Is there a different loading screen on DE, Josh? I saw a nifty .PCX file from sifting thru the MM6 data contents ** Adrian-Tepes enters. MinotaurMage: Just the Shadow Guild(Frozen Highlands), and Kreigspire Castle(Jeweled Egg door) *** Adrian-Tepes floats in looking around the pale room ksummers: ya, they're bad bugs ksummers: especially the Kriegspire one, imo MinotaurMage: Maybe my cousins just like to keep the Egg for themselves... *** Adrian-Tepes raises a brow and drops to the ground Joshwar: Well, tell them I'll sick the titans on them if they don't give it up. ksummers: lol *** Adrian-Tepes looks at the colection of people and nods walking to a wall and leans against it folding his arms acrossed his chest ksummers: love those titans MinotaurMage: ]But for the armor fixing and the no experience cap, it's worth the minor hassle to do the workaround Adrian-Tepes: collection* ksummers: adrian, are you a 3do comm member? Joshwar: experience caps? MinotaurMage: Though I think the exp cap is now 16 million times 256 Adrian-Tepes: hmmm..? ksummers: I'll take that as a no Alien13UFO: hey minitaur, you should get a better message board. Like E-Z board or something. Its a lot better in my opinion MinotaurMage: Yeah, before the 1.1 patch had a cap of 16 million experience for characters Joshwar: I see. Adrian-Tepes: No ksummers: Dave, how high have you gone in XP/levels in MM6? Adrian-Tepes: whatever 3do is ksummers: they make games (3do.com) *** Adrian-Tepes nods MinotaurMage: Level 175 from dumping ALL my excess gold into the Kriegspire well Adrian-Tepes: I roleplay in real LU rooms Adrian-Tepes: not games ksummers: lol, I used that well, but only for a few levels ksummers: could only get enough gold if I kept going to NWC and depositing in back ksummers: bank MinotaurMage: Kinda like all the gold and experience I got from the LoG well in MM7 *** Adrian-Tepes rises off the gorund and floats out into the air ksummers: haven't finished MM7 yet Joshwar: K, have you gotten back to MM7? Adrian-Tepes: ground* MinotaurMage: I'm getting close(was in Titan Stronghold) Joshwar: darn! *** Adrian-Tepes feels his back rip out into black feathered wings MinotaurMage: Killing Josh's evil brethren... ksummers: I killed the red dragon on Emerald Isle though! ksummers: and saved before looting ksummers: got some killer chain armor *** Adrian-Tepes takes off from the tiny group of bandits Joshwar: I couldn't sadly. MinotaurMage: Yep, I did that and the Wrmothrax both at level 5 ** Adrian-Tepes exits. Alien13UFO: I got through the titans stronghold and killed everything in it ksummers: and I've spent a couple "months" since then Joshwar: I did that too. Poor titans. : ( Alien13UFO: I don't go for score though ksummers: but I'm finding it more difficult to get where I have to go to get what I want MinotaurMage: Good work. Still think MM6 had the best approach instead of "nerfing" the skills and character classes MinotaurMage: I NEVER go for score ksummers: neither do I MinotaurMage: Just fun and finishing the game ksummers: and I like MM6 better than MM7 so far ksummers: me too MinotaurMage: Which is why I've played my D2 single Bowazon to level 30 Joshwar: I don't go for score either. ksummers: don't play D2 ksummers: lazy, you still here? Joshwar: I don't play d2 either MinotaurMage: It's basically the same as D1, just with more things added lazysod: yep.. lurking a bit if you don't mind.. i'm trying to write a c program.. MinotaurMage: Sorta like an expanded edition of Hellfire ksummers: got a question though . . . if you can pay attention for a sec lazysod: k- sure.. shoot. ksummers: I was hoping to get some ideas for MM6 POLL questions while I have you guys herre Joshwar: Favorite monster! Alien13UFO: have you ever beat hellfire? I never could beat the guy in the crypt MinotaurMage: He's easy! ksummers: (didn't I do favorite monster?) Joshwar: Not that I know of. ksummers: I may not have lazysod: pooowwaa.... hmm.. how about favourite place in the land to fly over, or favourite goose egg to tell newbies? MinotaurMage: It depends on the class, but Lightning Wall is all you really need ksummers: ooh, good ones MinotaurMage: He'll just stand there and take the damage without coming out of his little area ksummers: *writing down the ideas* ksummers: any ideas Dave, alien? ** Siuan enters. ksummers: Hey Siuan!!! Alien13UFO: oh yeah, by the way, I can't play diablo anymore cuz the cd got scratched :( ksummers: -*kisses her* MinotaurMage: How about obscure ways to use spells? Or "potion recipes" from mixing the various scroll messages you get in the game Alien13UFO: ummmmmm any ideas for what? ksummers: MM6 POLL questions ksummers: Dave, not exactly sure what you mean there Alien13UFO: how about favorite tows to use the armagheddon spell in? Alien13UFO: or favorite things to turn to stone? MinotaurMage: Or "Fun with Dark Containment" Joshwar: How about how many times you would commit suicide in the game? ksummers: never tried turned "things" into stone - does that work? MinotaurMage: Yep ksummers: gimme some examples Dave MinotaurMage: Just lasts a brief time ksummers: (answers to your questions) ksummers: commit suicide? MinotaurMage: Casting DE on Goblins is a favorite tactic. You see them shrunk and stoned Joshwar: Go into battle when you were pretty sure you would lose, but didn't. ksummers: Siuan, you here? ksummers: (I see you, but don't see you talking) MinotaurMage: Ah, I remember that feeling in VARN MinotaurMage: But I survived Alien13UFO: that place is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!! MinotaurMage: Yep, I hated that dungeon the most Joshwar: Me too. I still do whenever I play. ksummers: I loved VARN the most Alien13UFO: there is like a million guys in there MinotaurMage: And for some reason liked the Firelord dungeon a lot ksummers: hated Kriegspire the most Alien13UFO: my brother killed everyone in VARN lazysod: hm.. k- how about strangest bug encountered while cheating? ksummers: I did too Alien13UFO: took him forever though MinotaurMage: I did VARN, but it took three game days to clear ksummers: heh heh, gimme an example Lazy lazysod: alien: i did so too .. i killed everybody in the whole game lazysod: k: well.. i wandered into an 'assert' message when i had my team of 4 flying knights shoot arrows with the speed of a gatling gun... :) ksummers: loved it ksummers: ? lazy? what's an assert message? Alien13UFO: WoW thats pretty fast! whew MinotaurMage: That's an error code ksummers: oh ksummers: the only dungeon I didn't clear was Kreigspire ksummers: just goot the good stuff and RAN MinotaurMage: I've never seen a problem or error crop up in MM6 playing(even inability to go to an area) lazysod: k : you're no programmer i see.. an assert message is a programmers way of making sure something doesn't happen... like making sure the sum of 1 and 1 is 2 Joshwar: I didn't clear Castle Darkmore last time. ksummers: ok, ya, I'm NOT a programmer lol ksummers: (dave, how can I get a transcript of this?) ** Siuan exits. Joshwar: Copy and Paste Alien13UFO: I am going to be a programmer MinotaurMage: You could try putting Stealing into MM6 Lazy... Alien13UFO: but not yet lazysod: dave : i found plenty.. got stuck in some walls - flipped out of the game a few times, and quite some more weird thigns.. non showstopping though, like the arena bug in m&m 8 that kicked you out of the game. lazysod: alien : what are you goign to code in? MinotaurMage: Or rather back into the game MinotaurMage: Just copy and paste the contents lazysod: dave: grin- but i hated that skill.. hmm.. though i'd love stealing the purses of these pesky peasants again.. MinotaurMage: That's how I do it MinotaurMage: Or you could also change the monster database quite significantly for a challenge MinotaurMage: Or even the Loot Generator ** Joshwar exits. MinotaurMage: All sorts of possibilities... ksummers: how much of the game can you really change with the programming? lazysod: hmm.. changing the monsters.. that would be something to do.. do you know how to do that on m&m 8? then it would finally get challenging.. lazysod: k - in programming everything is possible.. we could even make it x- rated :) ksummers: LOL! lazysod: m&m 6.1 - the procreation years ;) ksummers: could you, say, add a white goblin in the volcano off NS? ksummers: ;) ksummers: lol lazy! Alien13UFO: wow. Alien13UFO: lol MinotaurMage: Yep Alien13UFO: brb ksummers: now THAT would be fun . . . MinotaurMage: Just edit the picture file. No problem... ksummers: create a new version of MM6 lazysod: sure... but i'd rather add a shovel quest - dig a hole between the teleporters on the mountain in ironfist and find the secret teleport to vori ;) ksummers: MM6: the wooden flute lazysod: hmm.. -grins- i'm still no member - i like the bell better. lazysod: m&m 6 : the plane of the wrong bell ksummers: will we EVER be able to get to Vori? maybe in MM9??? MinotaurMage: Well, in order to do that you either need a hex editor or Stormcat's MM7View program lazysod: hmm.. a hex editor i do have.. i've got stormcat's editor too - but that's an old version.. ksummers: lazy, you're not in the GWF?!? ksummers: lol lazysod: k: nope.. never got around to it.. i might as well apply though - but i wouldn't be any better a guild member then the most of them MinotaurMage: He's an honorary member. Especially since he and ropsemaria get along so well ksummers: I wonder why someone hasnt' edited the game in a big way and let other people play it to see what they think ksummers: or is that a copyright infringement? MinotaurMage: You're better than most. I've seen a lot of people disappear right after they join the GWF ksummers: lazy is? MinotaurMage: I don't see how it could be... MinotaurMage: You can add MM7 or MM8 characters to MM6 with no problem lazysod: k : i guess that is a copyright infringement - at least when you post the results somewhere, like a patched exe.. MinotaurMage: Might be interesting... lazysod: k: lazy is what? ksummers: hm . . . well, even doing it in "secret" Alien13UFO: its not as long as you don't seel it. by the way. Im back Alien13UFO: sell it ksummers: "better than most" about leaving after becoming a member? lazysod: wb alien... lazysod: alien: Welcome Back MinotaurMage: Welcome back Alien13UFO: oh. didnt know MinotaurMage: Gotta get used to the Usenet lingo lazysod: k : well.. i've been to a few meetings - i guess dave is pointing to that.. ksummers: is rose comin? Alien13UFO: I have been to all of them since I have been a member. well, I missed like, 2 lazysod: k: don't know.. as far as i know she won't be online before 1am mt, that would be in two hours. MinotaurMage: Well, I'm glad for the turnout. Usually we only get 3 people to the most, and the more people that come to these meetings means better chance to keep in touch with each other in my opinion ksummers: in two hours it will be about 5pm mt ksummers: glad to be here, now that I have the chance AND the address! ksummers: had to "format c:" not long ago ksummers: lost everything ksummers: including web addresses MinotaurMage: Yes, I apologive for that. I'll make sure I put that on all notifications of meetings lazysod: -grins widely- hmm.. i'm glad to be here too - as it is i only found out about this meetnig about 5 minutes before it started ;) ksummers: so I could actually GO to the last meeting ksummers: but didn't know where it was MinotaurMage: EEK! What happened? ksummers: ;) lazysod: k: formatting c? that's a monthly business here.. ksummers: well ksummers: I had installed a few "free" ISP's ksummers: and they made the whole system crash ksummers: it was terrible ksummers: now I'm using Windows 2000 ksummers: I couldn't get 98 to work anymore ksummers: go figure MinotaurMage: Hmm. Could have been something else too. I've had problems with dying hard drives the most ksummers: the hard drive is ok, I think ksummers: it very well could have been something else ksummers: but I'm not a big "computer" expert MinotaurMage: I've been using Win. 2K to play D2. And I have yet to see a crash or Blue Screen of Death unlike 98 ksummers: ya, I like 2000 so far MinotaurMage: And networking is so effortless under Win 2K MinotaurMage: I'm really liking that feature lazysod: dave.. i've got win98se running for quite some time now.. havent' seen a blue screen in ages.. ksummers: is the blue screen of death where it's scanning the hard disk? lazysod: dave: networking effortlessly? does that include getting two network cards to run properly in the same pc? then i would finally have the cable modem online for both pc.. MinotaurMage: I usually see Netscape crash constantly under 98, but no crashes under Win 2k Alien13UFO: i get the bsod a lot. lazysod: have to admit to that.. both netscape and ie crash down a few times under 98.. lazysod: alien: what are you doing ? have you installed a lot of rogue drivers? ksummers: rouge? ksummers: I had to get my computer friend to help me ksummers: I really don't know much about computers ksummers: just gaming ;) ksummers: I'm an accountant MinotaurMage: I know quite a bit, as I used to build machines from the "ground up" Alien13UFO: brb. gotta check my mail ksummers: I actually used to build computer and networks MinotaurMage: I still do, but maybe once a year now... ksummers: but this was back inthe days of . . . ksummers: ready for this? ksummers: 425's/433's . . . ksummers: and Novell was king MinotaurMage: CPUs? ksummers: ya ksummers: lol ksummers: 4 MB RAM MinotaurMage: I have a 667 MhZ P3 ksummers: I have a 550Mhz ksummers: P2, I think ksummers: HD's were 130MB MinotaurMage: And I'll "milk it" until I think I REALLY need to upgrade ksummers: so we're talking a while back ksummers: me too lazysod: k: rogue drivers - drivers for hardware that is no longer present. they tend to destabalize the system.. -sigh- and here i am with my measly p3 450 with 256 megs.. ksummers: geez MinotaurMage: My 667 has 256K ksummers: no, don't think so (rougue drivers) lazysod: my 450 as well.. ksummers: brb lazysod: megs that is.. and 32 on the video card.. MinotaurMage: Coulkd always format the drive and do a clean installation MinotaurMage: Though that's usually a last-resort option lazysod: dave: yeah .. i do that quite often.. everytime the system slows down i'll do that.. just for the fun of it.. have all isntallation discs on the harddisk anyway. MinotaurMage: Well, did any of you happen to hear about Intel loosing a LOT of money on their stock value yesterday? Alien13UFO: Im back ** nelle_m enters. lazysod: hello nelle. lazysod: wb alien. nelle_m: hi lazysod MinotaurMage: What's the difference between this chat channel and the E-Z board one, Alien? lazysod: dave: nope.. i don't follow the stock markets. Alien13UFO: i said the message board Alien13UFO: ez board doesn't have a chat. I like this chat though Alien13UFO: but I don't like the board nelle_m: so how is everyone? MinotaurMage: Ah...Sorry. Alien13UFO: you wanna see my might and magic ez board to see the dif? MinotaurMage: I don't see much traffic at the GWF/GMG board or my board either for that matter ksummers: phone call. sorry guys, I should go. see ya next time! :) MinotaurMage: I'm familiar with EZ boards, Behemoth was kind enough to give me one of my own lazysod: see you soon k.. ** ksummers exits. lazysod: no need to whisper nelle.. i'm from holland.. yourself? Alien13UFO: http://pub14.ezboard.com/fworldsofmightandmagicjadame Alien13UFO: thats mine nelle_m: i'm from uk Alien13UFO: I live in the USA nelle_m: where in USA? MinotaurMage: Only one post so far, but my board does not have many posts either so I should not try to make you feel bad Alien13UFO: New York Alien13UFO: yeah. I don't have a site to go with mine but I do for both of my other ones Alien13UFO: so they have more posts ** nelle_m exits. MinotaurMage: Ok. Well, I feel a need to take out the Summoner from D2 so I'll make sure I keep everyone informed of the next meeting MinotaurMage: Thanks everyone for coming, and as always feel free to email or cmail me suggestions lazysod: gmm... so that's the end of this meeting already? we haven't event talked about the guild yet.. MinotaurMage: Well, um what would you suggest? Alien13UFO: ok. cya everyone lazysod: glad to have been here though.. Alien13UFO: yeah me too ** Alien13UFO exits. lazysod: hmm.. don't know dave.. i'll see that i'll sign up so i learn earlier about the meetings - then i might find something to talk about MinotaurMage: D'oh! MinotaurMage: Well, I'm always looking for ways to have others participate and do things lazysod: hmm... that would be the way to revive the guild - getting them back together.. lemme think about it.. i'll let you hear when i find something. MinotaurMage: But I certainly can't do it alone, as my sporadic updating of the MoW shows MinotaurMage: Ok, thanks. I really appreciate that. azysod: where are the rest of the site operators then? (i would assist - but my html knowledge is too small and i'm not too rich on time either) MinotaurMage: There's only me and Steve Jaqvaar and maybe Steve Soap, but I'm not sure how often he does updates to the site lazysod: hmm.. that's 2.5 people.. that should be enough i guess. but again - my knowledge of pages is too small yet - i don't know how much work it takes to do an update MinotaurMage: I've done MoW updates myself of course. I could always put a bit more time into the Guild itself I suppose lazysod: i don't know.. first the sheep must be back at the flock ... MinotaurMage: Well, again the problem is that many leave after joining the GWF. I could give you my email list, but I'm not sure how much I should do to ask older members to come back lazysod: well.. it was fun being here.. next time i'll try to -be- here a little bit more.. i was too distracted by my c-program today.. see you around dave.. lazysod: hmm.. wait. MinotaurMage: It's their decision, and I'd certainly would like to see this last 10 more years at least lazysod: oh - i guess you should ask all members that left at least one question - do they still want to be part of the gwf? if they say no they should fade away .. ofcoruse - it would help to spice it up a little to keep them from saying no lazysod: 10 years of gwf?? that would be something.. especially with the fast aging of computer users.. the old members would really be 'ancient' in the end MinotaurMage: Well, I've always tried to make a point that I appreciate contributions from others. MinotaurMage: I don't see why not? The old computers still have message forums dedicated to them MinotaurMage: And we're talking from the TRS days here lazysod: the trs? or is that TSR? lazysod: be right back.. need to take a leak .. MinotaurMage: TRS-80 was the model of one of the first computers MinotaurMage: Though it's pretty primitive in retrospect. Basically the 8-bit machines(Commodore, Apple, Atari, and TRS) lasted from the late 70s(77 I think was the beginning) to around 1984 or so ** Charun enters. lazysod: ah... hmm.. i didn't start withy computers until 1990 when i started studying computer engineering.. so i'm a kid when it comes to comptuers i guess. the first computers i had being three c64s lazysod: hello charun Charun: Hello lazysod: charun.. strange name.. are you on the 3do community? Charun: No I'm not. lazysod: hmm.. i guessed that much - i guess i know most of the names on 3do.. where are you from then? Charun: Why do you ask? Charun: What do you mean where am I from? lazysod: hmm .. just interested.. this started out as a gwf meeting - and as far as i knew all of the members of the gwf are 3do members as well.. Charun: gwf? lazysod: well - where do you chat or go otherwise? Charun: At LiveUniverse. lazysod: ah.. the page that hoists these chatboxes.. hmm .. i don't know them really well.. are they any good? Charun: Sometimes yes,sometimes no..it varies. Charun: I just got on. lazysod: ah.. -grin- it's the same with all chatboxes i guess .. some of them are good - some are not.. most of them suffer from netconjestion once in a while. MinotaurMage: Is it like the E-circles on the LiveUniverse stuff? I never explored past this area Charun: What? lazysod: well - i've gotto go.. my c program calls me.. it was good to be here. see you all soon MinotaurMage: E-circles is like an area where you can move to different areas, like chatting pages and other things MinotaurMage: Thanks LS Charun: Perhaps we will.Valete. ** lazysod exits. Charun: I guess you could say that it's an E-circle. MinotaurMage: Well, it was nice meeting you. Perhaps in this small world we shall meet again... Charun: Whats gwf? MinotaurMage: Guild of the Wooden Flute MinotaurMage: It's based from a computer game Charun: Oh Charun: Which one? MinotaurMage: I'd like to think of it as a fun place for friends to share their experiences MinotaurMage: Might and Magic 6 Charun: Where is there a wooden flute in MM6? MinotaurMage: It's part of a quest in one of the dungeons in the game Charun: Oh Charun: Oh that flute Charun: Where do you drop it off? MinotaurMage: Though it does not have a use in the game, a lot of people have come together to create a guild so that the flute does have a use Charun: I haven't figured it out Charun: Does it have a use now? MinotaurMage: Well, there's a guy who wants a harp. Along the way, you find a flute and the guy who wants the harp says he does not want it of course MinotaurMage: Yes MinotaurMage: In Might and Magic 8, the Wooden Flute does indeed have a use Charun: What is that? MinotaurMage: It lets you into a special dungeon in the game Charun: Ok MinotaurMage: In fact I and a few others are part of a tribute in the game itself to a departed person Charun: Who? MinotaurMage: He was known as "Lord Brinne" in the various chat groups he associated with Charun: What happened to him? MinotaurMage: He died, and Ultima 9 also had a tribute to him. Many people keep saying they were fond of knowing him, although I never got a chance to meet him online myself MinotaurMage: We all generally use an area called the 3DO community. You can see what it looks like by selecting the Community Log-on and creating an ID for yourself Charun: I'm sorry but I have to go. MinotaurMage: Ok. Thansk for coming Charun: Perhaps I will. MinotaurMage: I hope to see you again soon ** Charun exits.
