Sandworms for Sarducaa, Death Worms for Herabalter

This discussion in the Mortal Online forums, about the next continent and what might be on it or in it, leads me to suggest: There could be 'sandworms' in Sarducaa and some other kind or colour of worm in Herabalter, along the lines of this
(as imagined by artist Pieter Dirkx)
Mongolian Death Worm.

Also known as the Allghoikhorkhoi, this cryptid (its existence disputed and unconfirmed In Real Life) is described as a bright red worm with a wide body that is 2 to 5 feet (0.6 to 1.5 m) long. It's allegedly got corrosive poison spit, an electrical range attack, and a nasty habit of lurking underground.

In fact, this fable is probably the inspiration for Tolkien's references to "wild Were-Worms in the Last Desert". Whether real but rare or utterly fantastic, it's perfect for adoption into Mortal Online.

Darkshotz = Gorax, True or False?

Darkshotz, AKA Hybushie, AKA LuBu, AKA Gorax? -- this time according to what purports to be a screenshot of Google's cache of some page, by a highly dubious source, Eladriel (AKA ravagerx).

kov.freeforums.net is 404

The image gives two other URLS,

    , and

  • which as you and I both can see have 'gone missing', assuming I transcribed them correctly.

    I guess we'll never know if this material is all there is to go on.


    The Subscription Problem

    Part of a Response to this other Article

    I play Mortal Online, a game noted for its problems. I want to talk about *just* the payment -and- non-payment setup for this product.

    Star Vault, the makers, have adopted a kind of hybrid system. On top of many, I believe it's yet another problem. People can't even talk about it without getting embroiled.

    Some call it F2P: Free to Play. It's free to play a crippled version that's supposed to get you hooked (and sometimes, that works); how crippled? Skills will not operate at more than 60 percent-- not a PvP-viable situation-- and, because of the skill tier system, some abilities remain unavailable. F2Players can't own houses or accept trades of certain items or materials. (This is pretty much how I think it should be for trial players, by the way. If you want to knock over paying customers' sand castles, subscribe.)

    Some call it Pay to Win: P2W. However, paying a subscription only gives you an advantage over those who, presumably, are there to try the game and buy if they like it. Supposedly.
    • There's no way, as of yet, to pay more in any kind of cash shop to have an advantage, account for account, over others who also pay.
    Naturally, a lot of F2P accounts are actually started to enable those who are already paying to have more storage, do more activities on the side, and participate in the Peen-v-Peen[TM] on some anonymous basis, without paying for another/more accounts.
    • F2P characters can't PvP toe-to-toe, but they can do some other things which people find to be valuable uses of their playing time. Right now, AFK mining with macros is the rage.
    I don't know how Star Vault keeps going while letting these non-subscription accounts never expire; though they do have their investors. But development is slow, and more income could only help, to get more people on the team if nothing else.

    Seeing how it works for the people making and playing this one game that's gone from subs only to subs plus time-unlimited but gimped trials, I am sure it is premature to announce that the subscription model is dead for games in general.

    Bizarre New Dinosaur Blasted By Game Critics: "Ruins Low-Fantasy Earth We've Come To Love"


    A Bizarre New Dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of the American West

    By Hans-Dieter Sues, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology
    [Note: Yes. The creature below was written up by Dr. Sues. I could not make this stuff up if I tried.]

    A life reconstruction of Anzu wyliei. We know from several partial skeletons that Anzu had a beak, a crested head, huge claws, and long powerful legs. We infer that it had feathers because fossils of closely related species from China preserve clear feather impressions.

    ArcheAge - An Early Look | Free Online MMORPG and MMO Games List - OnRPG by @ApocaRUFF

    Another fun game review...

    By Jordan Hall (ApocaRUFF)

    ArcheAge is an MMORPG that sets out to achieve the perfect balance of themepark and sandbox. Being developed by XLGames in Korea, it will be published by Trion in North America. Unfortunately, that's still far off. Right now, myself and hundreds of other English-speaking gamers are playing ArcheAge on foreign servers, with the Russian Mail.ru servers being the most popular. This Early Look will be based on my time in the Russian open beta of ArcheAge, where I played with many other OnRPG forum members.
    Character Creation and Customization
    Character creation in ArcheAge is fairly extensive. If you enjoy sliders, you'll enjoy making your character. With the extensive customization available to you, creating a beauty (or a monster) is quite possible. Personally, I went with a mutated demon cat with an afro. Needless to say, I was impressed with the creation process.

    Cats with a K, Prowlers without an L

    We take you to a Mortal Online Official forums conversation, in progress:

    ("Why Does Every (sic) Attack RPK?")

    Najwalaylah said: ?
    • Please explain why "cats" is spelled with a "k".
    • Does this have anything to do with "Amerika with a K"?
    • If the internet hates role playing, why is it the home of so much roleplaying? Discuss the difference between the Internet as a collective person and as a place.
      • For extra credit, give an interpretative dance on the same subject.
    • Who is "Tom" and why is "Jerry"?
      • Link video example, please.
    • Please explain why Star Vault spells "prowlers" without an L.
    And Mattk50 answered:
    1. because its kool
    2. No, Amerika is an unkool (also known as "cool") idea, mainly used by survivors of the third reich
    3. Many consider the internet to be a series of tubes. This however, is incorrect. It is actually a tube of series, and as such the collective nature of the internet reflects reality as a whole, with variations due to demographics usage of technology. It is fair to say that in general, the internet is home to a lot of everything. Additionally, due to the increased accessibility of everything on the internet, not only is there a lot of everything, but it is very easy to come across more of everything on a daily basis. As a result, to many it seems that the internet is a home to an excessive amount of roleplaying but this is in fact, not the case, rendering that portion of the question invalid.

      The internet as a place is simple, it is a distributed, decentralized network. The internet is everywhere, it is within you in the form of wifi waves and that dragon dildo you ordered off amazon. As a Collective consciousness, the location of the internet does not matter, and as previously explained the presence of something on the internet is not to be unexpected, rather it should be expected. therefore, the significance of the internet as a place where people may or may not be mentally ill is questionable. The internet as a collective being does not exist as we think of it. It is actually a higher life form, similar to how many consider earth to be a life form under the Gaia theory proposed by James Lovelock so many years ago. As stated by the theory, this means that the internet will one day collapse inward, forming a giant planetary mouth and eat us all for its own entertainment.
    4. Performed by myself, i think this describes the entirety of the subject perfectly.
    5. Tom is the collective representation of our human, flawed selves. Just as tom feels greed and is then struck down, beaten, maimed, and disgraced only to get right back up to stab himself in the gut all over again, we humans are truly pathetic and must strive towards self extermination as soon as im done with this burrito. Jerry is because him has yesterday even go been decided to why look more like.
    6. Be careful, this also proved the existence of our Illuminati overlords.
    7. I am unable. 
    Bravo, Mattk50. Bravo.
