Lots of info on this topic. I started late 1988, though my earliest manual dates to 1989, and this was like Brad said on the pdp11. Sometime thereafter, 1990ish or so, the game was ported to UNIX.

Replying to Topic 'It's too easy.'

Why does it have to have manufactured chaotic-ness? Starting fresh as a level 1 with zero help other than from other level 1s would be chaotic enough for 90% of the Drakkar community. Removing chits, removing guildhalls, sissy-pansy skill gains. That would own, and I know Brad's itching to do it. "W...

Complete crit wipes would be interesting. It will never happen though. But I'd be the first one to offer up my high level crit as a sacrifice to make the game playable again. I also doubt I'm the only one. I've been slammed by certain Sysops lately for criticizing without providing solutions, so her...

State of the game, pt. 1

What makes a good game? Well, duh - one that's fun, right? Well, true. That's very important. But one person's version of "fun" is so much different than another's. I'd say the deeper people get into a game, the less superficial "fun" they have with it. It becomes more rewarding, more like the way y...

There are two missing scrolls from the Mausoleum quest. They were removed from the game after the quest was solved. One was a coded message, the other was one of the steps in decoding it. The other steps can still be found on scrolls in the game (why they all weren't removed, I don't know). The enti...

That means that you WILL gain quirk "points" by being in combat (grunting), but not by simply standing there doing nothing. Webster's definition for serendipity: "The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident." This seems to suggest quirks will come RANDOMLY. Grunting for exp, you gain a ...

- You can't "grunt" for quirks.

Here's a good way to steal loot. Grab an invis twig, head to an area rich with loot. This works best in upper, pillars, uc3.5, and such. Go invis. Be careful to avoid players using area or on-hex attacks like firebreath or earthcrush. Then, to be sure no one notices what you're doing, take note of h...
