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)

grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there

grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
