Yeah, definitely good stuff, good rewards. I notice design choices from very various other games too, very excellently done and well mixed.

I'm yet to die. :3

By the way...your sig is neat, Chugsworth. We need to have something like that for TH. A generator, that is. But that's off topic.

Also gives Ryme a chance to possibly get some data on how high level chars. fight. Well, he could do that with the Space Station too, but.

Also, did you ever consider putting in another alternate way of levelling up besides the Space Station? That would've been interesting, but I also see how it might create problems.

I've only been to the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE*, but what I've seen so far is cool.

I didn't realize right away that the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* shows up after you find the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE*, so I spent a few extra turns at the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* (which is good anyway, since I could use the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE*). Also didn't realize that you have to *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* after *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* it to get *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* to *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* you again (although it's reasonable that if just *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* it in *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* isn't enough, you might as well try the only other thing you can *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* with it).

Whoa--isn't there some mention of content while in the 48-hr rule? Can we edit those out people?

I find the new stuff to be kick-ass. Lots of work went into it. Someone doesn't have enough to do at her night job. ;)

/me spent 150 adventures in the 4 zones today, and hasn't managed to get any equipment, not that he can use any of it anyway, being only level 36.

Jesus and Jettclecto, please edit out the specific details of the content since we're still in the 48-hr rule.

I was just trying to point out the possibility for confusion in actually getting to the new content.

Although now I'm wondering if I ought to say *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* instead of "new content" :รพ

Of course it had to be you. I particularly liked the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* of the word "do". That's a very Lord of Darkness thing, replacing two letters with seventeen.

"CENSURE"?
I don't think that word means what you think it means.

The word you are looking for is "CENSOR".

Oh, you're right. I had thought censure was a form of censor, like, an instance of censoring. But it's not :/ I guess it still kinda fits. >.>

Man, I LOVE the new areas and monsters and the quest!!! My level 67 gadgeteer gets his butt kicked HARDCORE in the higher range areas... I have 1,394 hp and they whittle it down FAST. My stats are Strength: 264, Intellect: 373, Reflexes: 840. I am getting squished in some areas, not fun. Maybe I need better gear or a higher Strength.

PS: Poor Jesus, getting censored by the government...

I really like the new content.

My only quibble, and even that is presuming something, is that I don't like new content coming in very rarely. If indeed the shimmering chaos is ultra-rare, and you need at least three of these to have all items, then I don't like it. Of course, it could be just slightly rare (say, 1 in 500 encounters) in which case it will be perfectly reasonable.

That's an interesting point. I'd like to be doing something else than trying to find 3 over the next year or so. :?

Just out of curiosity, why would an ultrarare in this new set of zones cause a different reaction than an ultrarare in any of the other zones?

Probably because you need to find 3 to have a complete item set. Personally, I could care less, because that's the zone I'm gonna be in for awhile after I get my UR disc. I assume it'll hold us until atleast retconscension.

Finding 3 of the same UR might actually take awhile, depending. Even if it doesn't last until retconscension, it'll consume a decent chunk of time, probably enough for more quests to be put in.

I realize that some people do consider finding UR's a requirement to meet their goals, but honestly I don't put them in with the intention that most people will get them. It's more of a "super-lucky bonus" than a "you're not complete until you grab this".

It's not the zone. It's the fact that this ultrarare is a requirement for at least two more items, who knows how many more, making this whole area of new content based on extreme luck. I'd much rather have my game be based on capability than luck.

As I said above, this "super-lucky bonus" is required for two other items (at least). And these two items both have unique qualities. It's not so much about being "complete" (although this does play an important part) as it is about "I need to understand this quality". That's how I tick.

I'd like to reiterate that I'm not really complaining. New content is great, especially high level content. This is just my feeling about basing items on ultra-rares, which is, after all, just a small part of the new content.

Well, some people may view as collecting all the items as being "complete". I mean, not everyone has the same goals, or definition of "complete".

I agree with MNA...

and with Muhandes... the fact that some UR is a requirement for getting some items sounds kind of weird... not impossible or unacceptable, just weird, only because we have no idea how this "lucky strike" works, we don't have a "luck" factor with us to tell us how many "special items" -not UR or SR, just, not that common- we might get

Rereading your post a couple of times, it actually sounds like you're mostly worried there may be large handfuls of shimmering chaos recipes, and that pursuing them could become a full-time occupation. I'm not going to flat-out state one way or the other, but I will say that given the amount of farming being done in those zones, there should be a pretty definitive answer as to the total quantity of options fairly soon.

Ryme should run for politics. He makes us think he answers questions without ever actually answering questions. ;) ;)
