the prestige adventure skewls - spearman

wow, it's been so long, i think i forgot the format of these things!  let's see if i can get back in the swing of things.

spearmen are experts at the use of spear and shield.  i am kinda surprised it is considered a prestige class, but it isn't a hybrid and is most def not a basic skewl, so where else is it gonna go, i suppose.  they require a skill level of 200 in one hand pierce skill, most easily gained by leveling warrior to 20th.

when you want to become a spearman, head to feladan to meet tareviel.   he's real easy to find - directly west of the port pad and under the weird elven tree.  he is quite proud of his profession, as you will learn while speaking to him.

if you would rather, you can go to dalimond instead, to meet with wei garant,  he is located in the building closest to the gate, west of the pad.  in thru the gateway, then to your right, is where you will find the human male.  however, he didn't have much to say to me.

 

well, only 3 more trainers to go!!  join me again soon to meet a couple disciples and istaria's version of the most iconic fantasy profession.  see you  then.

loyalty points

my dear beloved game has been thru a lot over the years.  no need to bore you with the sordid details.  but with that - as well as other considerations that niche games have -  in mind, the gods created the loyalty rewards program.  basically, your account receives an amount of tokens based on how long you subscribe.  in turn, you can use the tokens to buy exclusive things, like pets and upgrades to your vault.

want to know how it worx?  i am happy to tell you, and i want you to know i had to do some work to pull off the first part, because you can't take screenies of the login screens.  i had to print screen them to word docs, then save them as jpgs, so that is why you will see some strange backgrounds.......

anyhoo, when you login to your account, you will see the token section under your alt list.  the first icon is your 'delieverables' - each delieverable is worth an amount of tokens (in my case, since i have a yearly reoccurring subscript, is 20.  also, since i have been such a customer since well before 2007, i have a lot of deliverables).  under that is the icon for the actual tokens you have ready to be assigned to an alt.  choose which alt you want to have the tokens from your alt list, then click the delieverable icon.  it is here that you will be able to redeem however many delieverables you want.  keep in mind that the tokens become bound to that alt, and cannot be taken away or traded.  click okay when ready and the deed is done.  notice that the second, token icon's number has increased by 20 (1 delieverable for me is worth 20 tokens, remember).

now you have to apply tokens to the alt (you can change the alt, if you wish - i think.  i haven't tried it myself).  click on the token icon to bring up the apply screen, choose how many tokens you want to apply to the alt (i applied 16 out of 33) and click yes, and finish by clicking okay.  

now we switch over to velveeta, who went on a shopping spree.  when you login to your alt, your tokens should be in your inventory or your vault (the more i think about it, the more i think it's the vault.  i should go check.  hold on.  yeap, it's the vault).  okay, your vault.  you then need to move them from your vault to your inventory, and head for bristugo.  just outside the fort stands the lovely anarie the loyalty rewards vendor.  open the trade window with her and take a look at what she has for sale.  i bought the phoenix shoulder pet; the black widow, beetle, and combatbot pets; all the tech kits, even the dragon ones; and all the patterns.

of course, once you have your pets, you want to personalize them.  no one wants to be followed around by black widow.  so, right click on the icon in your inventory and choose the customize option.  you can do what you like as you can in the customize screen, but i usually just change names, in this case, from black widow to provolone (i changed it later, so no comments).  after provolone, i changed the bot to robocheez, and the beetle to cotswold.  i decided to keep cotswold around, because i think he looks good as an accessory.  speaking of accessory, i renamed the phoenix 'illy reborn' and put him on my other shoulder as a match for illy, jr.

 

and there you have the loyalty rewards program in a nutshell.  i love the game and don't foresee me leaving it until the lights go out, but i hope those who like a little extra will find the tokens a great idea.

see you soon for more adventure trainers!

Good writeup on tokens execpt for one small part..

""keep in mind that the tokens become 
bound to that alt, and cannot be taken away or traded.""

I do believe they are giveable.


Ouch thats what cut and paste can sometimes do to ya.

True. they are sent to that player, they are not BOUND to that player. as I tested this last night when I traded those said tokens to an alt. this only means that they are given directly to that players account/vault and can not be changed. now that change is because you are not collecting them on the main logon screen to be sent to any alt you desire. you are sending directly to a players vault. they are by no means bound to that character. they can be traded at will

 

lov's 2015 holiday party, part 4 - fashion show

to end the party, lov had us all congregate at the 'stage' area - on the other side of the gate road from the tavern - for a fashion show.

lov herself proudly showed off a small part of her dragon mask collection while in khutit form.

everyone, myself included, took a turn on the catwalk, with anzha, lupussan, and danna strutting their stuff.  the following is but a small sample of the finery on display:

anzhu in her blue celestial robes and kirasanct garb.

danna modelling red celestial robes.

lov showing her werewolf side, along with pumpkin face, mummy face, and skull face.

lupussan wearing blue holiday robes, red holiday robes, and - of course, because no fashion show is complete without them - sammy's special pants.

 

there were many more beautiful clothes that i, obviously, missed getting screenies of.  this is why you need to come to these events for yourself!!  these posts can't convey all the fun of the real thing.

 

and that takes care of this year's gnomekindle party on order.  my next post will be a brief examination of loyalty points and the goodies you can get with them.  then it is back to the last few trainers we haven't met yet.  hope to see you soon for all that!

lov's 2015 holiday party, part 3 - eating and skating

sorry it's been so long since my last post - i have been on vacation in the carribbean!   it was fun and i had a blast, but now it is time to get back to reality!

 

after all the fun and games, it was time for the feast.  there are several different items of party foods, and there are items for 'vegans' (bipeds who don't eat meat) and 'carnies' (dragons, sslik, and saris).   party foods have no value in decreasing death point penalties, like tavern food - but they do provide little benefits and minor bonuses.  there was also an exchange of gifts and presents.  the following is a short and by no means complete list of party foods (we covered the gifts in part 2):

roasted pumpkin seeds - small bonus to armor

pumpkin pie - small bonus to health

mrs. clause's special hot chocolate - small bonus to dexterity 

granny nuffle's festival punch - heals small amount of hit points

granny nuffle's festival cookies - small bonus to power and focus

mrs. clause's gingerbread gnome - small bonus to strength, dragons only

dragon celebration cake - makes you glow!  sslik and saris can eat it, too

chocolate mouse - small bonus to evasion, sslik, saris, and dragons only

ahala's sweet brew - heals hit point damage

there is also red and white wine, obtained from gnomekindle presents.  i consumed some red wine to get my lovely glow for the skating party!

after the feast, we all returned to the maze for fireworx and pictures.  some of my dragon friends joined me at the pond for some skating while we watched the brilliant display going on over our heads (go here, here, and here for some other peeps pix).

 

join me again very soon, when we will finish up the player run gnomekindle event by reviewing the fashion show.  hope you are enjoying the posts and think it was worth the wait!
