Ok so I wrote a program this weekend to provide players hirelings. For now it only for renting Dumbass to go kill shit or recover a death pile. You can hire him for an hour per runic. He will follow megamud commands sent to him if you hire him. But only from the player that hired him, minus basic party commands like @health, @heal, and so on. Plan to add others to this list of hireling npcs like a generic priest, warrior, and mage.

To hire Dumbass, check to see if he is in the halls, go up to the temple healer and “buy token” from him it cost 1 runic. Then give the token to Dumbass and he will become your happy little bot. If you hand him another token while you have time left he will extend your time by an hour. So buy 2 and hand him 2 you get 2 hours.

There is two commands beyond mega’s set of commands and those are:
@done will end your time early if your done with him
@time will tell you how much time you have left on the job.

So I added 4 new maps today. I added Mithril Hall, Many Arrows, Ocean, and Chult(part 1). That should be all my added area’s minus a few transitional areas and Icewind Dale(No one near this yet). I know I have been slacking on these and paths. So let me know which maps I’m missing and what paths do I need to add.

Also not sure if I ever mentioned there is a new MME or not so hey there a new MME with all the latest info, of course minus Chult part 2 map.

Ok finished the second part of Chult. I have added a level 70 quest that gives you 100 mil exp and a cool trinket per your class. And of course it’s a realm runner and require you to kill Jeffery(massive sand worm) per player, so enjoy that. It also includes new armour and a weapon for witchhunters at level 70. Gives some decent bonuses and actually has an on use for when you complete the set.

So I have updated the server with a new expansion, it’s actually part 1 of 2. It got so big I have to break it in half and give you the first half to learn it.

So I tried to tune it to lvl 60’s kinda of a struggle for a solo 60, but a pair should do ok. It’s in a far off land to the west, it’s a newly discovered land with ancient monsters not seen for thousands of years. Strange people, magics are yours to discover!

Ok enough of the of that lets get to the brass tacks. This is a new area that is found by jumping on the boat from the pier in Aqurious. There is a 2 runic tax to get into the boathouse(cost of the ticket). Then just “buy ticket” at the counter. This will put you in a waiting room for the rest of your party. Once your boat is loaded for everyone going on the trip 1 PERSON does “use ticket” and it will put you on the boat to the new area. The boat is a 10 min journey, there is no way around this. Enjoy the ride. There is only 3 boats so make sure it’s full before you go. Or else someone gonna be waiting for awhile.

Found in this new area, is several monsters that have been in the dats but never used. We going prehistoric in this bitch. It’s a jungle full of dino’s so watch it! Of course there is a maze in the middle of it so don’t get lost. We got 2 big boys that do wander the area so watch out. Also there is a bank there cause you will need to take some cash with you.

I’m tired and will post the new item’s and mob’s tomorrow but if you can’t wait the MME has been updated. Of course the map part is blocked out till it’s explored.

So been working on a cool new area, and it’s a good size, so far we are at 1189 rooms! So there is plenty enough room for scripting, there is 7 new area’s that can be scripted. Everything has been built except items, not sure what you guys are in need of in the lvl 60 range. Lvl 50 range you got a ton of new items. So I need to hear from you what is needed in that range, this area will probably be doable at lvl 55, but 60 easily. Scripting solo by 70.

So holler at me in game, send me a tele(I read dumbass’s tele’s all day long) or hell an email. But tell me what I should add in this update. I like to wrap this up and put in the update this next weekend.

Around noon (PST) tomorrow I will be opening up a new BradsMud (tweaked mudrev) realm.  You will find it under R from main menu and games menu.  It is Brad’s edited mudrev realm.  I have reset the realm and will be a fresh start.  So come check it out.  It will be same rules as the rest of the realms, 2 accounts till you reach a certain level.  I will post that tomorrow when I post that it’s open.

I will also be moving the server back to its new/old home on my server.  I got it shipped here finally and got it all reinstalled and running on fresh os’s.

So tomorrow I plan to run a turkey day mob hunt.  For the new people what a mob hunt is, I will make a special item that can only be gotten during a mob hunt.  I will take 4 mobs and add this special item to it, make it 100% drop.  Now these mobs can range from the cave bear to the dark mage.  So everyone has a chance to get them.  Now the only one rule I ask that if you find one you stop hunting and let others get a chance.  Then of course if it’s getting late and people had a chance rump away.

Now this mob hunt item is called cornucopia.  It will have only 5 uses for the life time of the item.  And on use it will grant you massive healing powers.  It will give you 20-30 hps per rnd and double your resting rate, for 20 rnds.  Remember this will only have 5 uses period they don’t recharge, so use them wisely.

The Server has been moved as of last night, so IP has been changed. So you need to flush your DNS to reconnect, or find the IP on the facebook group.
I’m not gonna post my public IP on the website for the whole world to view. But I did post it on FB mud group, fewer dumbass’s see it there so less likely to be messed with.

Just a little FYI Bear’s BBS will be up and down today getting the box it’s on ready to be shipped to me. So at some point today the IP will change to a new (temp) IP at some point. So if you use that too connect be aware tonight you will loose the abil to connect. You can use the domain bbs.bearfather.net to connect it will be updated.

Once again the board will be up and down all day so be prepared to see the shutdown warning…altho I will ask each time.

A little background on what’s going on. The server been having lots of power issues lately and the UPS batteries died last year. The cause of this power issue is the place it’s plugged into is very loose and they keep bumping it. So fed up with these issues I having the whole server packed up and sent to me, it’s currently in Minnesota at a friend’s house. We built it together years ago for minecraft, it was built to run a virtual multi server minecraft network, and it’s a monster of a machine with dual xeons running 48 gigs of ram. Well I gave up minecraft 5 years ago him 7, so now it just sits there running 1 vm for this board.

So today I am prepping the box to be shipped to me and transferring the VM to another server till it’s gets here and I rebuild the whole box.
