Forum Gems

Postby the mystical one on Tue Apr 22, 2008 10:26 am

Every now and then, we will run a game that gave give one or more players a number of Forum Gems

This began with the Save Yourself game here, where the winner received a name change voucher, and the rest of the top 5 receive forum points (renamed Forum Gems for now). These will be redeemable for silly forum stuff. here's the current shop list:

1 Forum Gems: Nobility for a day! You get a special avatar and a title for a day. No special avatar currently exists, so until one does, you only get the one-day custom title.
5 Forum Gems: 1 Title Change Voucher (Gives a custom title/Custom title change) and a Reversed Sword.(the sword under your title)
10 Forum Gems: +1 Dragon on an already existing reverse sword.
10 Forum Gems: Write a custom news death message to be added to LORD! Three types possible: Said by the dead player when they're killed in self-defense (SELFDEF), said by the victor when we kills another player (PK), or said when a player dies to a forest monster (FOREST). Please tell me the type of message (selfdef/pk/forest). Use [ENEMY} to represent where the enemy's name should appear, and use [PLAYER] to show where the player's name will appear.
20 Forum Gems: May ask tmo to lock nearly any thread for a period of about 24 hours. (Important Nuklear LORD (site) discussions and certain threads such as someone asking for emotional support might not be allowed to be locked, at my discretion, but for the most part you can have anything locked)
30 Forum Gems: Clone for a round! You will be given access to a special legal clone account where you may play in an additional colored realm using that account. You may not play in the same realm as your main account. You may, however, play in special realm with both your main account and the clone account. Only one player may be using this award at any given time, and you must wait for the round to finish if someone is currently using it.
500 Forum Gems: Be an almost-winner! I will add enough dragon kills to your character to be one shy of supreme victory. Then you will be banned forever! (Don't buy this ever please.)

Others to come!

Nah, it'd be better if you could change it for say, a week and tmo disables the person's ability to change their own avatar!

Send a rival to level 11 for a day. Have a player's stats grossly advanced for a day. ie: a short sword does 1600 damage.

Good fun, but not really a forum game. Since we're supposedly keeping stats and stuff for the actual LORD game, probably a good idea to keep the shenanigans in the forum.

It's all good. Those would have to be, by their nature expensive shenanigans. Pretty funny though.

1 FC (efcey): Nobility For a Day

24 hours of a special avatar, signature and possibly reversed sword. This is for the folks who might not play the forum games much and don't have time to concentrate on getting more than the 1 FC they stumbled into. They should have something cool to spend it on instead of letting it expire like a lame gift card.

Q: Do FC expire?
Q: Are they transferrable?

Gift cards don't expire anymore--at least in California.

What magical field stops at the CA border? Can I carry all my gift cards into CA to make them last forever? What a miracle! (by Grabthor's hammer)What a savings!

[/silliness]

Yeah, I know. So FC won't expire either?

They don't expire, but they are non-transferable.

FC's that is.

Well, in America's federal system, you can never be sure some state somewhere doesn't have a different law on something like this. I don't think we yet have a national law that gift cards can't expire. I may be wrong, but I'm guessing it's just standard policy now rather than law nationally, and probably law in a number of states but quite possibly not in all of them. I definitely know, however, that it is illegal for gift cards to expire in California. And when I first moved here, it was not illegal in Indiana, because I remember being pleasantly surprised to discover that gift cards couldn't expire in California. It might still not be illegal in Indiana, although I think gift cards expiring is by and large a thing of the past. I don't feel like doing actual research on this just now. However, these magical fields you speak of do actually exist here in America, if you consider state law to be a type of magic. Germany similarly has a patchwork of provincial laws and regulations in its federal system.[/rambling]

Is there a way in the actual forum ..software?.. to keep track of the Forum Cash? I've browsed other forums before that gave out 'candy' and various other 'points', which I have no idea what the purpose is.. But it was kept track underneath the persons name by their location and post count.

Something like that could definitely be implemented but it'd have to be coded in or someone would have to dig up a mod.

Probably more like Gems because you turn them into the tmo the bartender to do out of the ordinary things.
