The Felian Newspaper - For the Latest Forum Related News

Post by RabidFox »

Welcome to the Felian Newspaper.

This thread is for updates on new features, revamps, bug reports, contests, and other such things of importance to the forum. If you'd wish to discuss anything posted here, feel free to do so at the Prowl Space. Unlike the monthly Feilan Journal, the Feilan Newspaper publishes a new issue whenever there is a need, and is focused on functional subjects, such as updates to the forum's BBC code and official contests.

Issue 5 - Tuesday, May 30, 2006


Official Annoucements

I am in the process of creating species lists for the different animal families. These lists are to help people get their minds going when they are having trouble thinking of a new character to create. The lists will be posted as stickys in The Entrance Hall. The species list for the canine family is already posted and much of it has been completed.

Issue 7 - Wednesday, June 07, 2006


Bug Reports

For one reason or another that I am not clear on, new quotes are no longer displaying correctly, while old quotes remain working. The Fox is off to fix this annoying little bug and will report back when it has been solved. In the meantime, please use "@ -Enter Username Here-" and then your reply in replace of quoting. Thanks.

If anyone sees a strange image followed by seemingly random numbers in an old post, rest assured that it is simply part of the Puzzle Quest and not a glitch. For more information, see The Puzzle Quest sticky located in The Carnival.

Issue 14 - Friday, June 30, 2006


Revamps

Battling has been slightly revised to include the following features:

"Special items that improve battle performance like Wind Bolt and Daigor's Shield must be equipped before battle just as you would any weapon, except that you state what affect that they will have on the battle. Special items that permanently increase stats like Blessed Water can only be used via Private Message to RabidFox, in which you must request their effects and, if you have multiple characters, state which character that you want these effects for."

Leveling up is a feature of the Midas Arena that is not yet available, though, an item does exist for it specifically. Only after the tournament is completed will battling undergo a major revision so that a better leveling up system can be constructed. Until then, all characters ready for leveling up will simply retain all experience points. This little detail is nothing to worry about for now, but I still thought that it should be mentioned.
