Y'know, I completely forgot that. The poison-immunity ring (Snake Ring?) would prevent that, right?
No, it won't. IIRC swamp survival is the key thing (or being undead, demon, and I think lifeless).

Edit (from Executor's guide):

"Although MA C’tis has a variety of pretender to choose, half of them are useless.
They can only use lifeless, cold blooded and swamp survival pretenders."

So it looks like the cold blooded tag will also protect you. But I'd run a test to make sure. Also, undead and demon should be fine as well.

Ok, I've updated the player roster. Durecellrabbit's pretender will be ready in a few hours so we'll be on the way shortly.

Duncan_Frost can you let me know when you've had a chance to revise your pretender? I turned off the autostart feature so the game wouldn't begin before you had a chance to resend your pretender.

Alright, I'll do that now! Thanks for the heads up, it would have been pretty embarrassing to have my Great Sage die of disease four turns after I got him...

edit: Sent and confirmed, I'm all ready now

I've sent mine in. Is there anyway to check I sent the right one in? The naming scheme for these doesn't make it easy.

The best way would be to delete all your presaved pretenders and create a new one. But they're numbered in order of creation, so the highest number is the most recent pretender. There's also a program called catgod that should do that but I've never used it.

By the way valerius, I think you're doing an excellent job as admin of this game. I don't think I've ever seen an admin do a better job of starting a newbie game up than you're doing here. Keep up the good work

I deleted all the pretenders, remade and resent my pretender. Ready to go.

I've found catgod to be quite useful (link). I'll sometimes run it on all my pretenders to check out previous builds (because I've tried so many different variations of an E9N6 bless ).

Thanks! Thanks also for helping out with questions. I'll also mention that all vets reading this are welcome to participate in discussions as the game progresses if you see a question in an area of interest to you.


And without further ado, the game has begun! Good luck and have fun!

That sounds...vague. And disturbing. But no, I've never posted pictures of myself in any context.

PMing should be enabled for me now, by the way. I meant to do it immediately after making my account, but you can't access the options screen until the account is verified, and after the twelve hours that took I had forgotten.

Sorry, I was being purposely vague so as not to give either of us away if it turned out I did know you. But I guess not!
