Wiki / error when trying to upload a file
« on: June 02, 2015, 05:21:19 AM »
I tried to upload a file (a .png) to the wiki and I got this error:

Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public".

Did I do something wrong? the destination file name I used was: Dwilight_May_26_2015.png

Wiki / dwilight wiki cleanup
« on: January 15, 2015, 04:30:11 AM »
I'm not sure how to fix these issues for the Dwilight page on the wiki:

Under Realms: Fissoa shows up twice on the realm list, as the Grand Duchy of Fissoa and also as the Maritime Kingdom of Fissoa. Grand Duchy of Fissoa is what shows up on their realm page. There is a redirect setup from Maritime Kingdom of Fissoa to the GDoF page, but should the realm page use the short name of 'Fissoa' instead of the longer name? Seems like using the short name is the desired wiki-style.

Under religions: Torus Renatus shows up as an active religion despite me adding the Lost Religions template to the page...Is it because of the infobox being used?

Helpline / no realm notification when purchased region joins realm?
« on: January 13, 2015, 05:19:19 AM »
Some regions in Dwilight joined Luria Nova by paying off the local officials. At least I presume so since my character in LN got no notice of any kind when they switched from Morek to LN. Is that intended, or should I post it on the bug tracker?

If so, what category would this fall under?

Dwilight / Dwilight Wiki
« on: December 10, 2014, 09:31:35 AM »
I was working on the Dwilight wiki pages and wondered if others could provide some information about two faiths listed as active religions:

Was Torus Renatus ever actually founded as a religion on Dwilight? Wondering if I can safely mark it as an inactive religion.
What about the Cult of the Bear Lords? Any information that can be shared ? Currently it is a link to a blank page.

Helpline / sympathy positive feedback loop?
« on: September 02, 2014, 07:45:09 AM »
My character on Dwilight (Ezra, Lord of Shinnen) is an Ambassador and has been trying to mitigate the penalties from having a sympathetic populace. 

It seems like sympathy to every realm slowly creeps back up despite the efforts of our realm's diplomats. For example, 4 turns ago Shinnen is very loyal to D'hara and like Fissoa (both realms at war with Luria) according to the diplomacy report. This turn, they are deeply devoted to D'hara and very loyal to Fissoa. From reports I've gotten around our realm, it seems like the sympathies to every realm on the island slowly creep upward.

Dwilight / The relentless monster hordes
« on: July 30, 2014, 10:36:23 AM »
in the south, Monster hordes have finally overrun Candiels after attacking nearly every day and sometimes every turn. (though it still shows up as part of Fissoa ???) No huge battles reported at Tower Fatmilak so I'm guessing that is as far as the Monster Hordes will advance down south.

Takeover   (1 day, 4 hours ago)
message to Everyone on Dwilight
(rogue) has taken control of Candiels. The region used to belong to Fissoa.

In the north, the hordes have been attacking Mimer less frequently but still fairly often. Did the Theocracies awaken something in the depths to allow monsters to attack the eastern sub-continent?

Feature Requests / Improved World News
« on: June 30, 2014, 08:17:26 AM »
Title: Improved World News
Summary: Expand the World News for each world to be more accessible and to include more world events.
Details: Currently World News ( contains about 2 months worth of history and only includes the following events:
  • Huge Battle Fought
  • Government Reformed
  • Rumours of a Miracle
  • Public Execution
  • Rebellion
I propose two changes.
Change 1: add additional events:
  • Change of seasons
  • City and Stronghold change of ownership
  • Federation or War declarations
  • Tournament declared/tournament results
  • Duchy Allegiance changes
  • Founding of new Realm
Change 2: Increased accessibility to world news.
Currently you can only read the world news for the island you have characters on. The new dynamic maps allows players to see the maps for all islands, the world news pages should be changed to also be accessible regardless of whether you have a character on that island. links to the world news for each island could then be added to the information side bar section as well as to the character creation screen section where players choose which island they want a character on.
Not sure if it's possible to give access to this to people not logged in as a RSS feed? Could be added to email reminders to people who are inactive?

Change 1 benefits - The Current world news doesn't help give players a good idea of what is happening on a continent as it doesn't include many important events.
Change 2 benefits -  At character creation, being able to read the world news for each island would help players make informed choices of where they want to have a character. Being able to follow events on other islands could help players decide to start characters on those islands as well.

Possible Downsides or Exploits: None that I can think of. The information added is already (as far as I know) accessible to anyone with a character on that island.

Development / Improved World News ?
« on: June 10, 2014, 08:55:52 AM »
Before submitting this under feature requests, I thought I'd ask for some feedback:
Part 1:
Currently the World News for each continent is only readily available to players with characters on that continent. I propose that players could see the world news for each continent as part of the character creation process (under step 3?) or revamped to allow anyone to see the world news just like the dynamic maps are available to everyone.

Part 2:
Current world news items are 'Huge Battle Fought','Government Reformed', and 'Rumours of a Miracle', 'Public Execution', and 'Rebellion' (did I miss any?). 'rumours of a Miracle' could probably be taken out.

I would add the following game events to world news to give a fuller idea of events on the island.
  • Change of seasons
  • City and Stronghold change of ownership
  • Federation or War declarations
  • Tournament declared/tournament results
  • Duchy Allegiance changes

Any other events that would be beneficial to add?

Feature Requests / Change Gold Transfer message
« on: April 03, 2014, 04:11:26 AM »
Title: Add Recipient to gold transfer message

Summary: Add the recipient name to your message history for gold transfers

Details: The message in a character's sent message history for gold transfers doesn't tell who you sent the gold to. The message in your character's sent messages shows:
Gold Transfer   (x minutes ago)
personal message
You received bonds worth 100 gold from [Your Character].

I propose to change the message to:
Gold Transfer   (x minutes ago)
personal message to [character who received gold]
You received bonds worth 100 gold from [Your Character].

Benefits: Player wouldn't need to go to a city to check who they sent gold to and it wouldn't be limited to your last 10 transactions.

Possible Downsides or Exploits: none that I can think of beyond more work for the dev team.

Feature Requests / add warchest amount to army assignment page
« on: November 06, 2013, 03:14:58 AM »
Title: add warchest amount to army assignment page
Summary: Add the amount in each army's warchest to the army assignment page.
Details: Adds a column to the ArmyAssignment.php page showing the current balance of each army's warchest. A Lord and his knights are not always in the same army. The balance of the army warchests can be helpful in deciding to place their knight in an army.
Benefits: Provides the Lord with relevant information when assigning their knights (or themselves) to armies.
Possible Downsides or Exploits: none that I can think of, the information is available on the ArmyInfo.php page of whichever army the character is assigned.

Development / World News
« on: July 29, 2013, 10:42:03 AM »
So, the world news for the continents I have characters on (Atamara, Beluaterra & Dwilight) have these events listed:
  • Huge Battle Fought
  • Rebellion (maybe this should be cut down to only when the rebellion is declared and the result)
  • Public Execution*
  • Government of (realm name) Reformed

Am I missing any? I was thinking about making a feature request to have some more events added but figured I'd ask to see what else people would want in the world news. Too many events would probably clutter it up and reduce its usefulness as a summary of important events, but I think it would be good to list the following events in the world news:
  • Tournament declared/tournament results
  • Duchy Allegiance changes
  • Federation signed/War declared
  • Secession
Some other possibilities might be:
New Ruler elected
City/Stronghold change of ownership
New duchy formed

*note: Eddard's execution on Atamara didn't get listed but Kuvio's execution on Beluaterra did.

Wiki / spam in user pages and recent changes page question

two users with spam in their user pages:

Also, is there a way to toggle the user creation log entries in the recent changes page?

Dwilight / Year 23
« on: April 05, 2013, 09:12:24 AM »
Well, its the first day of spring of Year 23 in Dwilight. I thought it might be of value to have a thread to discuss the events that happen during the next in-game year.

Here in the southwest, Falkirk is starting off the year with only it's capital left but Aurvandil has vowed to restore Madina Isle to Falkirk. Aurvandil however faces internal challenges (to put it mildly) and the recent loss of Tovabur on Falmilak Isle to Fissoa. Meanwhile, Luria Nova has been slowly gaining strength as it absorbs the former lands of Luria Vesperi.

Wiki / unique items pages
« on: February 28, 2012, 04:02:19 PM »
My Beluaterra character recently obtained Ucdauh's Book of the Blessed. Ucdauh's Book of the Blessed already has a wiki page, but for a different island. What is the proper procedure for adding this item to the wiki for Beluaterra? 

Roleplaying / Daimons Death (Beluaterra)
« on: February 17, 2012, 07:31:46 AM »
The death of 1st Son

Captured by Lord Antonio, Yorick's torturer descends into the dungeon. Yorick himself would observe the events.

An older man enters the cell. His shield arm is a mess, hanging limp on his side. Perhaps in his younger days he looked heroic, but no longer. His eyes are full of hate towards the Daimon. "Welcome to my prison Daimon. I look forward to seeing what you are made of as soon as preparations are complete."

The Daimon replies "If you had the slightest idea what I am made of, you would never have come this close to me." and he begins a magical incantation...

The older man boots the Daimon in the chest while the guards that waited just outside the room  flood in with rods to beat the Daimon for as long as he keeps trying to cast the spell. The older man draws a blade with the arm that looked crippled and says "The arrogance of your kind is your weakness. Did you think we didn't know you could do magic or that he would endanger himself by coming face to face with you himself? Kill me and you just hasten your own death. But, perhaps you would like to hear a story?"

The Daimon responds "You are beating on a physical body. My equivalent of you wearing a coat. Why do you think this would prevent anything?" and attempts to break loose and escape, but is unable to as the guards bind him and restraint him.

The torturer begins his work by telling the Daimon what is about to occur. "This is the story of how you die. It is funny that you mention wearing us as a coat. For that is part of your torture. We will see what a Daimon is made of and if you can feel pain. First, I will break each of your bones in your limbs, then while you still live I will take knives and skin you. Metal rods have been prepared, which I will drive through your body and then I will give you over to the executioner who will lope off your head and toss your body into a furnace specially prepared for you."

And as described by the torturer, the Daimon 1st Son was killed.
