The Help You Need

Rate this Entry
Behold the arcane magicks of reanimation, as a clunky forum thread is struck down and risen anew as the almighty blog!


Hi guys.

So within the next something something period of time, Jaethor and the Godlettes (this is also the name of our band and forthcoming album) will be looking into refining and patching holes in our one and only help file system. While we have a small list of things to tackle on that note when the time is right, what we'd like from you all is...well. More things to tackle.

We're currently looking for requests along the lines of:
1. topics missing help files*
2. topics requiring more expansive or clear help files
3. topics requiring more accessible terms (aliases, such as DEITIES, GODS and PANTHEON all linking to HELP 12.1)


* if you can't find what you're looking for, it's entirely possible that the file you intend to find isn't yet labelled correctly. Put HELPSEARCH to use, just in case!

    Per request (and severe need):

    HELP 4.9 (previously HELP MOTIONS) has been updated to include all relevant syntax and information pertaining to city elections, guild elections and (yes) city motions. Access expanded to include the terms: election, elections, vote, voting, motions, contest, question.

    HELP 4.8 (gpolitics) has received a facelift, with various notes of heresy and happy lies removed.
  3. Nakarym's Avatar
    Each entry in HELP 1 has been modified, citing typo fixes, information refreshers and an expansion in keywords.

    The latter are as follows:
    1.1 - introduction, intro
    1.2 - concept
    1.3 - environment
    1.4 - syntax
    1.5 - connecting, connect, telnet, client, clients

    new keyword

    Thank the player of Nohwan for pointing out an issue with HELP 11.10 (apothecaries)

    File now correctly states PUFF as the interaction verb for smoking pipes. Changes also include the addition and specification of certain bits of information, nothing of import to seasoned players. New keywords (there are a lot): herb, herbs, curing, cure, cures, curative, curatives, smoke, pipe, pipes, affs, afflictions

    not sure if this is in the works or not... but a help file for fishing basics would be nice. tried help searching fish, and fishing.

    also since this is new, this could be in the works as well, but a help file on combat ranks would be nice so I don't have to keep searching for the bb posts on it.

    A wild HELP 13.11 (fishing) has appeared!

    Behold also, HELP 13.12 (feats).

    This comes also with a bit of shuffling. HELP LIBRARY, previously directing players to the file on the Worldsend Library, has since been changed to HELP GREATLIBRARY or HELP WORLDSEND.

    The first now routes to a new file detailing city libraries (HELP 4.17).
