A recurring superstition in game is that moons affect things in the world, or in the code. People say the black moon causes you to fail crafts/spells or roll lower, that the red moon makes mobs' combat rolls more effective, etc. etc.
I have always felt that all of this talk is bullshit. What is your take? Anyone know for sure?
You need a visibility of 0 to see and 1 to forage Default is 3, storms reduce them by 1 incrementally starting from the lightest sand storm, the exception is tremendous storms that lock your visibility at -1 right at the END of calculations. During "late night" and "before dawn" visibility is set to -1 instead of the default 3. Jihae or Lirathu adds 1 to visibility when out, so having both moons out let's you forage even at latenight/beforedawn, assuming there is ZERO storms. Moons also help visibility in the day, of course, since they help temper the effects of storms, other than the tremendous storms that fix visibility at -1, as mentioned.
The moon cycles are easy to follow, they both (Jihae/Lirathu) set and rise at a random time of day, when it is their rising day or setting day. For Jihae the Cycle is RISING DAY, 2 X SKY DAY, SETTING DAY, 3 X NOT HERE, then repeat. For Lirathu the Cycle is RISING DAY, 4 X SKY DAY, SETTING DAY, 5 X NOT HERE, then repeat. The cycles stay the same across every month, it's just a bit weird where they begin though, Jihae has its RISING DAY on the 3rd, Lirathu on the 4th. Easy to make an excel with this info.
They're up together quite often, a total of like 70ish days out of the 231 in the month (including rising days and setting days)
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

qwerty: ask jcarter. I think he's giving it away

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
