So I have added a new feature to goslink, and important one too. It’s for the pvp tourney, but the info will help me later with other things. I need all users to register their accounts with goslink. I will need you to do this with all accounts! Slackers will be shot!

How you might ask? First /sys @account @help, will give you the basic syntax.

On main account:
/sys @account @main : This will create your main account.
On dupes:
/sys @account @dupe (main account) : This is case sensitive, so bearfather is not the same as BearFather.

That’s it.

Holy shit 3 posts in a weeks time, fuck whats the world coming too!

Okay so want to start to flesh out the pvp tourney rules. Got a rough draft of how I envision the equipment points system below. I need input, this is a rough draft and needs some refining.

Another point like to touch is how it would run. I see a section of the realm cut out and players placed in there with their gear and 1 life. My thoughts are also all players are required to join discord, and have 2 channels 1 active in tourney and those not/dead in another channel. Once again want input, need more input to make this work.

I have also thought of a way to display each players progress, not live of course don’t need anyone cheating.

POINT SYSTEM:
Each item is worth a point value. Starters are free and based off class and included the 5 standard slots. Standard slots are feet,legs,torso,head, and hands.

Starting points: 25

points for items: (type: point cost)
limit 1: 5
limit 3,4: 4
limit 5+: 3

plate: 3
leather: 2
silk: 1

Weapons:
Single handed: 1
Double handed: 2

Jewellery, non limited: 2
Non standard slot, non limited: 1

Starters:
basic chainmail
basic rigid leather
basic cloth clothes

The gith have come from their home planes to explore this interesting material plane we call home! If you don’t know Gith come in two type GithYanki and Githzerai. And they hate each other to the death! So when you find them you will have to choose which side you want to help and make enemy of the other side. More info: GithYanki and Githerai

There has also been a bunch of rework of older items. And some new items. These new items are geared towards ninjas and witchies mostly. But new items for others are still to be found.

Now this is part 1 of 3, so expect more goodies to come. New MME will be out later this week, don’t want to give away too much.

Updated items/spells:
Erevis Cale suit(did some buffing to bring up to silk)
Ogre skin cloak(changed to natural)
lvl 120 guants(wasn’t suppose to be dbea)
elven warchain tunic(made heavier)
health ion stones(fixed health spell, now gives health while wearing)

lifedrain(made evil on use)
shadow blast(fixed to be a normal combat spell)

Somethings I did forget to mention with Thay 3 release, I got excited it was released and forgot these two points.

First I have have expanded the portal room in Lost city. Now it supports Ten Towns, Thultanthar, and Amlambar. They require you to have been to the city and bought a token. Each token is a one time use. So stack them up. They are loyal so will stay with you when you die.

Second point is Patreon. I have recently started a Patreon page, for subscriptions. There is no way I can charge for subs to a BBS these days, no matter how good it is. So if you feel the work that I do is worth a buck or more a month, stop by the page and subscribe to a tier. If you sub for a buck a month you get access to extra post about content I am working on ie. spoilers. If you do 5 a month, you get a cool “Pimp” class title. And access to the spoilers. This is a way to show your love to the board, and help the parts and weed fund grow. There is a link in the right side bar to it. Click it you know you want to.

Also will release a new MME next weekend, you guys have hit Thay hard and found most the secrets to be found already.

It has been 6 months in the making, and I’m sorry for the delay!

Szass Tam has shown his face finally! Can you find him? New exciting lands have been discovered, can you find the treasures hidden throughout Thay? There is new spells, monsters, items and much much more to be found in this new area.

Hidden in this new patch is a new endgame quest for the ones that truly want to show there power. Several new areas from lvl 90-200. There is even a new town you can call home.

So stop reading me and get out there and start killing!

So this year instead of a single day event for a killer item, we are gonna do a week long event!!!  This event will last from Dec 24th to Jan 2nd.  And your gonna need the time!

Something is happening at the north pole this year, the word is something has possessed Santa! North pole has become a crazy place with killer elves running around with deadly candy canes. Can you and your crew gather the components in time to stop Santa?

This quest will start with Slim, ask him Santa to start it. There is 2 identical areas, one is from lvls 1-100, and one is for 101-200. The layout is the same, just challenge ratings differ. I’m still debating on allowing players who have defeated Santa back into the area. The low level area is more geared for 50+ players, but some of the areas will allow you to dip your tow in and survive if you don’t go too far.

UPDATE:
The event has started. If you are lower level start in the south and work your way east. The nw corner is the hardest area, and south being the easiest. Enjoy!

New Item:
Santa Beard:
Location: face
AC: 2
Casts: christmas ornaments 5 times no recharge.
— room attack 170-2050(min=lvl*4+50, max=lvl*10+50)
— (So longer you hold the item the more powerful it is.)

So I have released part 2 to the Thay module. This one is really just a filler to add in the area’s to connect to the final part of the release. We get several new forests to explore and some mysterious caves deep inside one of those forests. There is a few new mobs in here and and re-introduced to some old favorites. This area is mainly lvl 90-120, the bosses might take a little help from others till your above this level.

I also dropped a new MME with the info from Thay part 1. So time to go find the hidden areas you never found the first time thru.

New Areas:
Forest road
Golden Forest
Sunrise Forest
Rusty Forest
Violet Caves

New Bosses:
?????

New Items:

So been a long ass time since we done a mob hunt in the edited realm, so this Saturday we gonna have nice old fashion mob hunt in the edited realm.

So whats a mob hunt you ask? Well I will take several bosses in the realm from mad wizard to Neth prince and add a special limited item created for the day. Whats that item? You wont know till it drops to know what it is. I will drop hints thru the day on what it does and where they might be found.

So good luck!

EDIT:
So all three top hats have been found. They were on Queen Ant, Night Hag, and Water Giant King. Salvatore found the 2 on hag and king, while Geb found his on the queen, so now you know who to hunt to get these prized items! The top hats are a +2 ac item, with 3 charges of full cure of hps and mana. It has 3 charges for life, so use wisely.

But it has a new IP, so you will have to flush your DNS to get back on.

In windows: windows key+r with bring up the run command. Type “cmd” and hit enter. Then type “ipconfig /flushdns” hit enter. Then try to connect.

In Linux: If you don’t know how what the hell you running it for!
