Changes 15 June 22

Building off a new version of the GPTuna engine that brought us the Orbs of Escher and the Ancient Cave, the Dimensional Corridor is now linked. Intended primarily as a building assistant, the Dimensional Corridor lets you write a room description (or two, or three) and, overnight, will riff on your input and produce twenty similar room descriptions as output. Suffering from writer's block or just want to expand on some ideas? The Corridor is here for you!

Because the Dimensional Corridor can only accommodate three inputs per day, it is currently linked in an out-of-the-way location (it's in the Monotoli Building). If you find it, feel free to give it a spin!

  • overpower
  • smash
  • hammerhand
  • riposte
  • ultra jump

For Thieves:

  • soulblade (both versions)

For Dancers:

For people hanging on to weird skills:

  • aurablast

Since the damage from these skills is nominally based on your weapon attacks, this will bring them more in line with expectations at high levels.

Changes 5-3-2021

  • Comet Punch Fluff

Comet punch now factors in strength, dexterity, hitroll and damroll. This is gated by a requirement that strength and dexterity are at 16 or higher.

  * Strength and damroll have a chance to give bonuses to damage
  * Dexterity and hitroll determines the chances of the strength/damroll damage bonus.
  * Successful bonuses are indicated by an all-caps message.

  • Double Image Fluff

Double now factors in dexterity and speed(EG haste, slow, fast, frenzy).

  * Skill success slightly increases with a dexterity of 16 or higher (higher dexterity = higher chance bonus)
  * Skill success slightly increases with speed affects (and they stack) (Fast, Frenzy, Haste)
  * Skill success slightly diminishes with Slow (still offset by other speed affects and dexterity)
   * Chance of the double being the target is slightly boosted by dexterity, if it's 16 or higher
  * Chance of double remaining after having been the target is slightly boosted by dexterity, if its 16 or higher
  • Bloodsuck doesn't work on players for now because it's crashy.


Changes 5-1-2021

EG if area $i == 1 // is $i in the immortal area? 
  • New rset arguments!
  • Affects:
   consecrate or consecrate_neutral

   flags the area of the mobs room as changed and then runs 'asave changed'
   useful for saving rset room descs etc
