A diary/journal for the pre-wipers!

Post by Sertraline » Mon Apr 07, 2008 1:43 am

Why do we like our items and levels and money so much? It's the memories, of course. It's only right that we give everyone a place to write them down. :P :D

Edit Here's a better effort, dyable too.

Maybe an NPC could give these out for a week after the wipe/rollback/whatever-will-happen. :)

Coming up... Don's version!

As well as text memories, perhaps a place to store those last screenshots of your multi-millionaire character with their amazing range of attributes, and common, not so common, rare and super-rare items collected over many hours of levelling and horse trading with other characters.

Why not indeed! :lol:

Sert was wanting the word Diary to be on the book so I came up with this

Very nice but it would only come in that color then?


A book mark :shock: why didn't I think of that.

Is this proposition serious about distributing these items, in-game, for the described reason? If you want these items to record screenshots and text, prior to a wipe, how do you expect your characters to retain them after a wipe actually happens? If you really need a place to reminisce, it would seem more appropriate to simply record your nostalgia on a thread, such as this one. (though maybe relocated to the "Player Talk" forum) In general, I have nothing really against the idea of blank books for player use.. it'd just be nice if they had a more functional use.

It's a joke, a token, a consolation prize. The item would be entirely useless.
