ArPharazonV (5:01:14 PM): I joined your hum, Arathorn :-)
Eonwe Valar (5:01:22 PM): let's give it a couple more minutes anyway :}
Eonwe Valar (5:01:26 PM): Heya Arathorn :}
ArathornValar (5:01:31 PM): Aiya
ArathornValar (5:01:39 PM): Have FM in im chat
(5:01:50 PM) VardaValar1 has entered the room.
VardaValar1 (5:01:54 PM): Aiya
Eonwe Valar (5:01:56 PM): heya :}
ArPharazonV (5:02:01 PM): Aiya
ArathornValar (5:02:09 PM): he's in a library on the road :-D
VardaValar1 (5:02:55 PM): who?
ArPharazonV (5:02:59 PM): maggot
VardaValar1 (5:03:02 PM): thanks
ArathornValar (5:03:03 PM): FM
ArPharazonV (5:03:11 PM): np
Eonwe Valar (5:03:19 PM): A library on the road,.. a bookmobile?
ArathornValar (5:03:45 PM): no.. just a badly planned building :-P ... hopes he
gets out before traffic starts :-D
Eonwe Valar (5:04:22 PM): hehe
VardaValar1 (5:04:33 PM): Watch out for those semis
(5:04:34 PM) mordacil has left the room.
(5:04:36 PM) mordacil has entered the room.
Eonwe Valar (5:04:56 PM): You ther eMordacil?
ArPharazonV (5:05:14 PM): ooh... another fault in my post I've discovered...
ArPharazonV (5:05:24 PM): he decided to climb the tree as well. Helvy needed
rest now, not care. So Calion climbed the tree as well,
VardaValar1 (5:05:29 PM): Have to love the Edit button
ArPharazonV (5:05:32 PM): an annoying repeat
ArPharazonV (5:05:59 PM): earlier I edited out a triple use of 'wound' within 1
or 2 sentences
ArPharazonV (5:06:51 PM): I kinda feel bad about editing a post after it's
already been responded too... but in this case, I doubt it matters
VardaValar1 (5:07:06 PM): I just got through typing my bit so fast it's probably
loaded with need of repair items.
ArPharazonV (5:07:46 PM): he decided to climb the tree as well. Helvy needed
rest now, not care. So Calion ascended the tree like the others,
ArPharazonV (5:07:48 PM): that better?
Eonwe Valar (5:08:29 PM): As long as it doesn't seriously change the
interpretation of your part or the responses after, I think it's safe to edit a
ArPharazonV (5:08:58 PM): perhaps 'ascended the tree too'...
TurgonjustTurgon (5:09:09 PM): I will post my reply tomorrow, dead tired right
(5:09:12 PM) mordacil has left the room.
Eonwe Valar (5:09:32 PM): No excuses Turgon, get there and put your post :} j/k
ArPharazonV (5:09:47 PM): you need to wake up and scream, Turg ;-)
(5:09:48 PM) mordacil has entered the room.
VardaValar1 (5:09:57 PM): Mordacil, problems?
mordacil (5:10:07 PM): my comp keeps kicking me offline
VardaValar1 (5:10:17 PM): I can't remember your guild name. Please remind me?
VardaValar1 (5:10:20 PM): ouch
VardaValar1 (5:11:05 PM): mordacil, your name is very familiar but I'm sorry,
just can't place it.
mordacil (5:11:15 PM): I haven't joined the guild. But i come to this chat a lot
ArPharazonV (5:11:23 PM): perhaps I just should remove the whole too/as
well/like the others part....
Eonwe Valar (5:11:40 PM): You could say "He joined theothers in the tree" Phar
mordacil (5:11:45 PM): mordacil is a combo of mor=dark and dacil=victor
ArPharazonV (5:12:12 PM): So Calion joined the others in the tree.... hmm...
sounds good
Eonwe Valar (5:12:28 PM): are you a friend of one of our members Mordacil?
mordacil (5:12:36 PM): yes
ArPharazonV (5:12:51 PM): ok, edited
Eonwe Valar (5:13:00 PM): which one?
ArPharazonV (5:13:29 PM): the Avar had been taken into the trees, and was now
being looked after by Auros. The dwarf had also climbed the tree,
mordacil (5:13:34 PM): akhoril(i think that how its spelled)
ArPharazonV (5:13:35 PM): meh... trees sounds fine
ArPharazonV (5:13:57 PM): all agree on that?
Eonwe Valar (5:14:29 PM): Ah
VardaValar1 (5:14:46 PM): Are we in more than one tree?
ArPharazonV (5:15:11 PM): If I change it to tree, we get another annoying repeat
Eonwe Valar (5:15:21 PM): well, Estarion, Fainan, and Auros are by necessity in
the same tree
TurgonjustTurgon (5:15:40 PM): not necessarily
ArPharazonV (5:16:00 PM): I could say 'big branched plant'... but it's just not
TurgonjustTurgon (5:16:01 PM): the bows above the path are so intertwined that
they may very well be in several trees at the same time
ArPharazonV (5:16:27 PM): is the tree of a certain type? perhaps I could use
that instead
ArPharazonV (5:16:57 PM): 'The dwarf had also climbed the mighty oak' or
something like that
VardaValar1 (5:17:34 PM): That would work, oaks are all over. Or refer to the
action more specifically as swung up onto the branch near Auros or whatever
ArPharazonV (5:18:14 PM): He sighed heavily and climbed up to where they catered
to Estarion. That's what Arathorn said
VardaValar1 (5:18:24 PM): That works well : )
VardaValar1 (5:18:38 PM): Are we finished inviting?
ArPharazonV (5:18:38 PM): and how would I fit it into my post?
ArPharazonV (5:18:48 PM): I am, still got 6 in the invited list
ArPharazonV (5:20:02 PM): I'll just leave it.... 'trees' and 'tree' is just
fine: Estarion was perhaps taken to an intertwining piece of branches from 2
trees, while Haran only used one to climb up.
VardaValar1 (5:21:06 PM): Let's start the meeting
ArPharazonV (5:21:07 PM): Yes! Enough! My post is done! No more editing until it
is necessary for the story.
ArPharazonV (5:21:14 PM): go ahead with meeting

Meeting: from Varda as Arathorn crashed in a few spots
VardaValar1: Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo.
VardaValar1: Membership
VardaValar1: Thror says hi, internet connectivity problems
VardaValar1: Any other member news?
ArathornValar: FM said hi...
VardaValar1: We show 125 full members currently
ArathornValar: still on vacation... pops in now and then on Aim as they travel
ArPharazonV: ooh, nice number
VardaValar1: Plus a batch of Tolkien-only and those who drop by
ArPharazonV: hmm... and how many of those 125 are regularly active?
VardaValar1: We usually start removing inactives at about 150, but it's too soon
VardaValar1: Many are active but not at the meeting
VardaValar1: They email, play other games, do Tolkien
ArPharazonV: ic
VardaValar1: To many, the meeting is about gaming too much and not interesting, or they are at work or asleep

VardaValar1: Web News:
VardaValar1: We have a new page for D2X Ladder 2
VardaValar1: Eonwe is at the top of Ladder 2 with a 21 paladin : )
VardaValar1: Any other Web news?
ArPharazonV: congrats :-)
VardaValar1: We need everyone to email their last updates for Ladder 1, and to send in Ladder 2 info, and please label which is which : )
mordacil has left the room.

ArPharazonV: and so the dark victor arises again...
VardaValar1: Turgon, Eonwe says you are ahead of him. Please email your Ladder 2

TurgonjustTurgon: just made it there :-)
VardaValar1: class? name of account and character?

TurgonjustTurgon: Turgon(V) (account)
VardaValar1: Thanks
TurgonjustTurgon: np :-)
VardaValar1: Best to email so we don't spend all our meeting time on this
VardaValar1: Anyone know Gwaihir's?
VardaValar1: Gaming:
VardaValar1: Since we are sort of there : )
VardaValar1: Any news on the other games?
mordacil has left the room.
Eonwe Valar: European Beta WoW signups are going
VardaValar1: Turgon, you still play DAoC?
VardaValar1: Thanks Eonwe
ArathornValar: Orodreth was downlaoding AA
VardaValar1: Oropher, how about EverQuest?
ArathornValar: He may try it out with me
VardaValar1: Cool. Maybe we'll have an AA branch yet : )
ArPharazonV: I've signed up only once for WoW beta... who knows, I'll hit the jackpot ;-)
VardaValar1: Good luck : )
ArathornValar: I played it a bit...
ArathornValar: The bridge defend map was pretty good...
ArathornValar: soem others you die before you run 10 feet (too many snipers
mordacil has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Which game Ara?
ArathornValar: AA
ArathornValar: (was just talking about the download)
ArathornValar: *re:
ArathornValar: Turgon tried a few maps, but didn't like the gameplay.. could just be the maps
ArPharazonV: ok, got a new invite... Theoden's online!
ArPharazonV: *steps back, lets conversation continue
VardaValar1: Mordacil, do you have a favorite Tolkien character in any of the books? Sil, LotR, any?
TheodenValar has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Theoden-King!
ArPharazonV: aiya
TheodenValar: Aiya
ArathornValar: Not sure anyone else in the guild plays AA type games... seems limited.. haven't seen Caranthir around at all so...
ArathornValar: seems that branch may not take off
VardaValar1: He may be having connection problems, give it some time
TurgonjustTurgon: nope, haven't played DaoC since almost a year now
VardaValar1: Thanks Turgon
ArPharazonV: I saw Caranthir in TFT the last few days
VardaValar1: Any further suggestions, comments, news?
VardaValar1: Tolkien:
VardaValar1: Any Tolkien topics?
VardaValar1: Mordacil picked Tuor as his favorite Tolkien character in all the books
VardaValar1: Any seconds? : )
VardaValar1: If not, who is yours?
ArPharazonV: great-great-great-great-etc-daddy!!
VardaValar1: hehe
VardaValar1: So did any of you read the books? : )
Eonwe Valar: Can't argue much with Tuor :}
mordacil: first man to reach the atlantic ocean and witness the fall of gondolin and sail to many places around the world.
 and the father of earendil. tuor did a lot for being mortal
VardaValar1: Eonwe seconds : )
mordacil has left the room.
Eonwe Valar: I haven't read LotR :} Never heard of it before :} Who are you all? :}
VardaValar1: hehe
ArPharazonV: it doesn't take much time to become a father (physically speaking)
ArPharazonV: witnessing the fall of gondolin also took less than a day
ArPharazonV: :-)
Eonwe Valar: That would be the Sea of Belegaer, not the Atlantic ocean :} It would more cloesly match the Pacific anyway :}
ArPharazonV: well, actually... wasn't ME in Europe?
ArPharazonV: that would bring Beleriand and the Sea in the Atlantic ocean
ArPharazonV: I've always seen Bermuda as the last remains of Numenor...
Eonwe Valar: ack pardon :} was just thinking "West" and "Valinor":}
ArPharazonV: with the US being the 'new land' formed on the now round world
Eonwe Valar: but either way, it's the Sea of Belegaer :}
ArPharazonV: still hoping to dig up Rivendell in the Netherlands....
TurgonjustTurgon: more likely to find the Grey Havens at Rotterdam :-)
ArPharazonV: neh, Shire was in Britain
ArPharazonV: and the Veluwe are the last remains of the MM
VardaValar1: afk a minute, beg pardon
VardaValar1: will scroll
ArPharazonV: which would put Rivendell... right under my home! Meh, more like Utrecht or something..
TurgonjustTurgon: shire in britain....
TurgonjustTurgon: neh
TurgonjustTurgon: too rainy
TurgonjustTurgon: moist
TurgonjustTurgon: weather's not good
ArPharazonV: now it is, yes, because Britain became an island
Eonwe Valar: Switzerland might be the former location of Nan Curunir? :}
ArPharazonV: becoming a small island always brings more rain....
Eonwe Valar: The Shire is Iceland, where Eonwë arrives from Valinor, fattens up, then flies his sleigh pulled by Yavanna's reaindeer around the world to deliver presents :}
VardaValar1: back
ArPharazonV: Iceland is greener than Greenland, I believe... with the latter having more ice
Eonwe Valar: wb :}
VardaValar1: hantal
VardaValar1: Presents? : )
ArPharazonV: no need to scroll ;-)
VardaValar1: too late : )
VardaValar1: mordacil ever make it back?
ArPharazonV: nope, our dark victor has lost the battle with his comp, I think
VardaValar1: Anyone here an AOL user, able to block baddies?
ArPharazonV: yeah, and already did it
VardaValar1: Bless you :-)
VardaValar1: MJKeenan, Oropher right? You alive there?
VardaValar1: I see dead people everywhere
ArPharazonV: Braaaains....
VardaValar1: Tuor is an excellent choice
Eonwe Valar: Happens when you live in AMan
VardaValar1: hehe
Eonwe Valar: *Aman
VardaValar1: Mandos is even worse
VardaValar1: Other choices I'd toss out as favorites:
VardaValar1: Beleg, Finrod
VardaValar1: Luthien
VardaValar1: Manwe : )
Eonwe Valar: Fëanor :}
ArPharazonV: ah, Luthien... were I female, I would have picked her name as a favorite....
ArPharazonV: but, were I female, I probably wouldn't have liked her that much anyway....
VardaValar1: I like her : )
VardaValar1: She was a go-getter. Knew what she wanted and went for it. Loyal to the hilt
VardaValar1: Brave
VardaValar1: Probably had a good fashion sense ;-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArPharazonV: long black robe... mysterious...
VardaValar1: She stuck by Beren
ArPharazonV: Beren had good taste
VardaValar1: But these poor Elvish king dads
ArPharazonV: heh, my Morrowind character is named Beren
ArPharazonV: created him even before I became Pharazon
VardaValar1: Been a while now
ArPharazonV: and a name of the house of Beor just fits better with a member of the Breton race
VardaValar1: What other Tolkien names did we use before joining the guild?
VardaValar1: Pharazon used Beren, for instance
VardaValar1: Eonwe, how about you?
Eonwe Valar: Beren Camlost, Mormegil/Turin, Celebrimbor, and once or twice, Fëanor :}
VardaValar1: A bunch : )
VardaValar1: No wonder you had to be dragged in
ArPharazonV: I've always put Morrowind aside if UESP was offline, always use it intensively during quests, so I didn't play it for months about half a year ago
Eonwe Valar: I thought it ambitous to go taking the name of a Vala, or I might've bene tempted to use Aulë :}
VardaValar1: Seemed a bit much to me too : )
ArPharazonV: last character before Beren I called Fingolfin
VardaValar1: Theoden, how about you?
ArPharazonV: the character before Fingolfin was an Orc, called him Azog...
ArPharazonV: and before that, I called my first character by my real name :-)
VardaValar1: Arathorn, you alive?
VardaValar1: Real name and guild name. Are they different after a while? : )
ArPharazonV: after a while, not really
VardaValar1: If I yell "Sauron", my son answers
Eonwe Valar: If someone yelled "Eonwë" in real life, I'd probably look :}
ArPharazonV: using Pharazon in games, forums, msn, aim, everywhere
VardaValar1: I was addressed as Varda, turned instantly. Was at SCA
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArathornValar: I'm around...
VardaValar1: Aiya Arathorn : )
ArathornValar: waiting for coffee to finish brewing :-)
ArPharazonV: nobody around me calls me Pharazon, not even Fladrif when I see him ;-)
VardaValar1: What Tolkien names did you use before joining the guild?
VardaValar1: Phar, do you call him Fladrif? : )
ArPharazonV: I used it once today, for fun
VardaValar1: I was surprised to be addressed as Varda at SCA, found out they picked it up from email
ArPharazonV: he came by my house today, we played a boardgame with 3
VardaValar1: Sounds fun
TheodenValar: back :-)
VardaValar1: Welcome back
ArPharazonV: aiyata
Eonwe Valar: wb :}
VardaValar1: Theoden, do you remember any Tolkien names you used before joining the guild?
ArathornValar: I've only ever used Stryder. That's how you first ercruited me in D2X <heh>... STryder5 at the time
VardaValar1: Feel funny to be your own father? Father/son issues? ;-)
ArPharazonV: before joining the guild, I always used either my real name, or a varying form of Minotaur-something
ArPharazonV: oh, and in Dungeon Siege, i've used Gandalf, Aragorn and Legolas
TheodenValar: hmmm, well not really I have basicly only had one online name since I joined (before I joined the guild and in some games still) and it is not tolkien
VardaValar1: I used Faramir in D1 since he seemed to fit the warrior character
VardaValar1: A lot of people who were brought into the guild were picked to talk to because they used Tolkien names
VardaValar1: In the last year, maybe longer, we get most of our people through web pages or friends
ArPharazonV: nobody got the honor of scouting me ;-)
VardaValar1: You went scout-free
Eonwe Valar: Before joining the Guild, I had only used one name on bnet, and it was my own creation, which is the name under which I came into the channel that fateful night long ago :}
ArPharazonV: I still don't recall how I found the site... I think I searched something with Lotr and Warcraft or something
VardaValar1: Web pages have been our biggest draw
VardaValar1: You came into Valar?
ArPharazonV: I saw 'valarguild'... hm.... 'That sounds cool, I'll check it out'...
Eonwe Valar: Who? Me or Pharazon?
VardaValar1: Good taste, Phar
VardaValar1: Eonwe, how did you come to the channel?
ArPharazonV: I mailed to Eonwe that very day...
VardaValar1: Phar, did you choose Eonwe for mailing because of WC3?
ArPharazonV: yeah
VardaValar1: I remember that now :-)
ArPharazonV: and 5 days later I joined the meeting under 'MinotaurofChaos' :-)
ArPharazonV: again, a varying form, the most recent, of 'Minotaur-something'
Eonwe Valar: Well, I found out about the Valar Guild doing a Tolkien search for WC2 Tolkien games,.. ended up at the valar guild's former domain :}
VardaValar1: So even with web pages, we often get gamers : )
Eonwe Valar: I believe one of the first pages I looked at was the Games Page at hte time "Gandalf's Greyheme's MIddle-Earth Archives" or such
VardaValar1: That was not an official Games page such as you have now. His personal page
Eonwe Valar: Saw a bunch of people calling themselves by "Varda" and "Aulë" and "Manwë" :] Thought it a bit ambitious, so had to check it out :} But wasn't until a month later that I came into the channel
VardaValar1: Ambitious, maybe cheeky...
Eonwe Valar: Might be a better word, yes ;} I remember being a bit surprised anyone would "claim" to be a Vala :}
VardaValar1: Felt kinda weird, actually
VardaValar1: But hey, we're the Valar Guild :-)
Eonwe Valar: :}
ArPharazonV: and now here he is... claiming to be the son of the Valar-king, leader of the army going against Morgoth
VardaValar1: hehe, way to go!
VardaValar1: Crown Prince of the Valar
VardaValar1: Not much chance to inherit
ArPharazonV: for now, I'm just satisfied with being the most powerful king of Men ;-)
Eonwe Valar: I remember stepping into the channel and running into Aulë as the first person, whom I then put to the Question to see what this Valar Guild was about :}
Eonwe Valar: hehe, True Phar :}
Eonwe Valar: the part about where I am now :}
VardaValar1: That was a historic moment
Eonwe Valar: The tester was being tested, hehe :}
VardaValar1: Always, my friend. That's why we want our testers to be good
VardaValar1: So, did Aule pass? :-)
ArPharazonV: ooh, almost forgot to activate Kazaalite....
Eonwe Valar: I'm here, so yes :} He represented the Valar Guild well :}
VardaValar1: : )
VardaValar1: I wonder how many folk we may have lost by having strangers in the channel perhaps mistaken for guild members
ArPharazonV: That's what the 'vala' tag is for, isn't it?
VardaValar1: We've had quite a few come to see us because they admired the behavior of a member in a game, despite temptations to be bad
Eonwe Valar: only helps for WC3 members, Phar
VardaValar1: A new person does not know how to tell us apart
ArPharazonV: oh, right
TurgonjustTurgon: besides, not everyone wants to change their account
VardaValar1: That was a big stopper in the early days, Manwe told me
VardaValar1: Get a high level D1 guy and be asked to start a new guy at level one
VardaValar1: They had to actually be interested : )
Eonwe Valar: :}
VardaValar1: They can keep the old account, just separate
TurgonjustTurgon: yep
VardaValar1: Shall we run off and play now? :-)

TurgonjustTurgon: wasn't a big deal for me, as I started out on East with a lvl 1 char :-)
Eonwe Valar: We asked that question often at one time, and still managed to grow.
TheodenValar: I have to go now, good night all :-)
mordacil has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Good night, Theoden
ArPharazonV: namarie
mordacil has left the room.
ArPharazonV: aiyata
VardaValar1: Poor mordacil
ArPharazonV: too late
TurgonjustTurgon: run off and play... that being D2x?
VardaValar1: yes : )
VardaValar1: Ladder 2 is calling
TheodenValar has left the room.
TurgonjustTurgon: arda-l already up :-)
VardaValar1: But if Mordacil is still trying to come in, I'll stick around
ArPharazonV: ooh... turning off Kazaalite... already lagging in AIM
VardaValar1: I'm a little 18 zon
TurgonjustTurgon: that being arda-L
TurgonjustTurgon: 23 zon here, so you're welcome :-)
mordacil has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya mordacil
ArPharazonV: aiyata
mordacil: I finally got back on
VardaValar1: Congrats
VardaValar1: Eonwe and I will attempt to help mordacil join
VardaValar1: pardon, running phone message
ArPharazonV: so, and the rest of us?
ArPharazonV: Tolkien? Aftermeeting?
ArPharazonV: TFT?
ArPharazonV: Well of Souls?
VardaValar1: Chat or play or whatever. But have fun : )
Eonwe Valar: Disperse as you wish, or share your impressions of the Valar Guild at joining :}
Eonwe Valar: or chat at your leisure :}
ArPharazonV: well... anybody here playing 'night of the dead' from time to time?
TurgonjustTurgon: which is?
ArPharazonV: a map for tft
ArPharazonV: each player is a marine, can get up to 10 or 11 players, and you have to survive 15 waves of enemies
ArPharazonV: you have to roam the map, a city, for ammo and landmines and anti-venom and that sort of stuff
ArPharazonV: several types of marines, including medic, heavy support, demolitions, marksman, etc
ArPharazonV: and several grunts
ArPharazonV: you start each game with a level 1 character, but you can earn and save experience and medals you earn, to take them with you in the last game
ArPharazonV: experience grants you ranks and stuff
ArPharazonV: *the next game
ArPharazonV: once you die, you become an observer... no reviving
ArPharazonV: you can save, however, both during the game and after death, your experience and medals, as I said
ArPharazonV: it's pretty cool... although I've never lasted further than wave 6
ArPharazonV: this 'survival'-mode is only one of the modes to play the game, but it is the only one so far, more will be introduced in the future versions
ArPharazonV: and, well, that's just all I have to say for now
ArPharazonV: anybody interested?
Orodreth V has entered the room.
VardaValar1: Aiya Orodreth
Orodreth V: I, er, live.
VardaValar1: Eonwe and I are doing a test, glad to see you : )
ArPharazonV: aiya
Orodreth V: Aiya Varda.
Orodreth V: Heyo, I'll be back soon.
VardaValar1: okie dokie

Orodreth V (6:42:51 PM): Sigh..still waiting for Evan... he's too much like me, sometimes.
Orodreth V (6:42:53 PM): Oh.
ArPharazonV (6:43:02 PM): hm? I can wait
Orodreth V (6:43:04 PM): Sure, I need to download the patch though.
ArPharazonV (6:43:12 PM): oh lord... new patch?
Orodreth V (6:43:18 PM): A81
Orodreth V (6:43:29 PM): Actuall feature this time.
Orodreth V (6:43:43 PM): Nothing that's likely to bother us for awhile, but, hey.
ArPharazonV (6:44:03 PM): well, won't it download automatically? or is my memory tricking me?
Orodreth V (6:44:20 PM): Opens up the page, but you have to download it yourself.
Orodreth V (6:46:05 PM): Be fun playing with the slot machine, though.
ArPharazonV (6:46:34 PM): ok, got it
ArPharazonV (6:46:58 PM): howling wolves?
Orodreth V (6:48:50 PM): If Ulfric has it up, yea.
ArPharazonV (6:49:11 PM): ok, I'm there
Orodreth V (6:51:40 PM): Ok.
Orodreth V (6:51:42 PM): Coming now.
Orodreth V (6:53:30 PM): Grr.
Orodreth V (6:53:31 PM): brb
ArPharazonV (6:53:37 PM): :-)
ArPharazonV (7:03:15 PM): which weapon type does a pet use?
Eonwe Valar (7:03:52 PM): claw/tooth class weapons :}
ArPharazonV (7:04:18 PM): so... if I wanted to upgrade her attack...
Eonwe Valar (7:05:36 PM): I was kidding, don't knwo which game you're talking about :}
ArPharazonV (7:05:48 PM): oh... Well of Souls
ArPharazonV (7:05:56 PM): aiyata, btw
Orodreth V (7:06:31 PM): Bah.
Orodreth V (7:06:37 PM): Responsibilities.
ArPharazonV (7:06:43 PM): no wos?
Orodreth V (7:06:53 PM): No, NOW I can get on.
ArPharazonV (7:06:59 PM): :-)
Orodreth V (7:07:02 PM): Pets use all weapons.
ArPharazonV (7:07:10 PM): ah, cool
Orodreth V (7:07:17 PM): Well.
Orodreth V (7:07:23 PM): Rather, they use the A/D of them.
ArPharazonV (7:07:34 PM): and how do you know what weapon to give her? How can you see what she already has'
ArPharazonV (7:07:35 PM): ?
Orodreth V (7:07:46 PM): So if you gave a pet a shield with +0D and +255 A, then your pet would attack more.
Orodreth V (7:08:06 PM): And they, for all intents and purposes, eat the equipment.
ArPharazonV (7:08:22 PM): so... effects are stacked?
Orodreth V (7:08:25 PM): So you can give your pet 20 swords, and all the bonues will work.
Orodreth V (7:08:30 PM): Bingo.
ArPharazonV (7:08:33 PM): very nice
Orodreth V (7:08:38 PM): All that matters is A/D
ArPharazonV (7:08:57 PM): so if I just give her all of my junk weapons, she'll gradually go up beyond myself?
ArPharazonV (7:10:04 PM): I just buy stuff for me, or use what I find, and everything not my type or below my level I can give to her?
ArPharazonV (7:10:17 PM): well, that sounds nice..
Orodreth V (7:11:05 PM): Yes.
Orodreth V (7:11:12 PM): And I, er, forgot about the patch.
Orodreth V (7:11:31 PM): Minor detail, there. *cough*.
ArPharazonV (7:11:40 PM): what?
Orodreth V (7:11:47 PM): Forgot to get the patch.
Orodreth V (7:11:50 PM): Getting now.
ArPharazonV (7:11:52 PM): ok
ArPharazonV (7:12:01 PM): I'll see you here or in howling wolves
Orodreth V (7:12:04 PM): Ok.
ArPharazonV (7:12:14 PM): probably both... I love desktop games :-)
ArPharazonV (7:14:59 PM): ooh, this surely cleans up my weapon and armor list....
ArPharazonV (7:15:10 PM): my own little garbage can
Orodreth V (7:18:50 PM): Connected
ArPharazonV (7:19:10 PM): ooh... from 7 % to 30... and just over half my inventory cleansed

Eonwe Valar (7:52:57 PM): btw, Mordacil passed his test to become Aerandir
ArPharazonV (7:52:58 PM): ah, somebody present? did not expect that
Eonwe Valar (7:53:11 PM): I look at the channel every several minutes
ArPharazonV (7:53:19 PM): Aerandir? can't say I recall the name...
ArPharazonV (7:53:26 PM): I'll look him up in the encyc
Eonwe Valar (7:54:02 PM): good idea :}
ArPharazonV (7:54:28 PM): mehehehe.... one of the 3 sailors from the trivia question... quite a coincedence
Eonwe Valar (7:54:56 PM): indeed :}
ArPharazonV (7:55:35 PM): well, you know what, I'll leave the meeting on for now, as I play tft
ArPharazonV (7:55:57 PM): I seriously doubt I'll be interrupted much by any responses ;-)
