I will be making separate sworn mobol for those wanting to roleplay damane or sul'dam. Damane are glorified livestock. Sul'dam are Seanchan, they wouldn't swear either. In the background, they will function through the same mechanic, but it's the user end that should be right for these people.

More work!

Still needs some polishing, and a custum built mob, but the foundation is there:

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
Elysia says 'Elytest wishes to swear the Oaths.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk nods at Elysia.

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'As you command, Elysia.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'elytest, will you obey the Forerunners, await the Return and serve Those Who Come Home?'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh > sa I will obey, await and serve.
You say 'I will obey, await and serve.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk nods at you.

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'Let me write your name in the register.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'Carry on with your business then, Elytest.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'For the Empress, may she live forever!'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
Elysia says 'when has Elytest sworn the Oaths?'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'Let me check in the register.'

* HP:Healthy SP:Bursting MV:Fresh >
A silver hawk says 'They have been sworn since Fri Feb 16 2018.'


It also still needs the other part of sworn mobol: unswearing and making ships etc. work. Not done, but baby steps...

If you didn’t know, you definitely should, we super appreciate all the work the imms are doing to better our game. We appreciate the hours put in to make things fun for the rest of us.

No, we don't. I couldn't even tell you if it will be this month or in March.

There's been a lot of preliminary work going on, e.g. figuring out the bottlenecks and trying to find solutions. A majority of Seanchan mobs were already changed slightly so they are all the same in some aspects (their aggro flags) and then the mob Seanchan to human change can be done more quickly and hopefully with less chances of errors. A lot of mobol was updated so it will function for clanned Seanchan after the change as well without us having to scramble in the days immediately after the change. Mobol was documented that couldn't be changed yet, but has to be done more or less directly after we flip the proverbial switch (e.g. ships, would be handy if you could actually use them, right now they won't let humans on :P ).

Then there's some problems that we've been working to find solutions for. To give you an example: if you're an Imperial Army human in the Imperial Army clan, you can't view clan and see a members list. While for LS-humans not being able to view clan Imperial Army is not vital, there have been secret clans forever, for clan admin purposes not being able to see who is a member is less than ideal. I spent some time trying to make a moboled clanlist, but didn't succeed. I haven't given up completely yet, but if a moboled solution won't work, we may have to give each clan a Seanchan-Seanchan admin character.

There are some other imm(s) working on some nifty features as well, you will love them when they go in, I'm sure!

I got sidetracked by "wouldn't it be fun if" and I started fiddling with mobol. Sure enough, I got that to work, so now I will have to perfect that mobol and set it up so that we can implement it in conjunction with the change. I haven't managed to get started on any of the Sworn stuff yet (which reminds me, it might be in your best interest to allow Sworn without Sworn in their title unless they are an applicant to Seanchan clans, as that could lead to Sworn clanned in various clans and all that potential!!).

I guess the bottom line is that hours and hours have already gone in, things are still being worked on and I think the general idea is to try to deliver an as smooth as possible transition as we can realistically achieve. However, answering a "when?" is something that is beyond me at the moment. The evil part of me keeps wishing it will be April 1st? :lol:

Unclanned will either have to trigger some mobol themselves, or will be auto-transported if they enter certain rooms.

It's a bit like the channeler hps change, the ones with hitpoints over 280 were put in a certain room and then were only able to resume playing if they typed the command and had their hps set to 280.

The stats LS homelands yield are pretty widely known, so if you were to list what class you are, people should be more than capable of helping you select the best homeland.

Is there any negative to changing to a LS homeland? Sorry, I didn't read all 6 pages, but Is this forced for all Seanchan, to go to a LS Homeland?
Is there any reason to not do it? I mean, when trolloc stocks were created, I logged in 3 different trolls and chose Bearish.. IE, Got screwed. So, Do we just not login to Seanchan chars for a while while this happens? Or Is it sorta a, you're going to have to do it anyways, just do it thing?

Thanks!

Agreed.
Rank3 plus could assign the sworn tag.
Rank 7 plus to unswear, remove the sworn tag, for traitors etc.
I would imagine once someone swears, with the intent to persue a seanchan based clan, said tag would need to be permenantly visible, granting them access to seanchan, but also identifying their status to others.

For me, Alima, whatever the amount of time is, yes, that would be the application period/time to do tasks etc. Under the assumption the person did not "swear" rent, log back on in say 4 weeks, ready to clan.

I'm opposed to a rank 5 requirement. I think activity may continue to be an issue. I would make any rank requirement rank 3 at the highest.

The DW have not discussed this yet so I don't speak on their behalf, but I'm in agreement with Meren. I like the idea of a certain amount of activity as Sworn before clanning into one of the other clans. However, I don't want to make it super annoying to join a Seanchan clan either, so I wouldn't make it any longer than a normal application period and I certainly would take that period of time as an application period, rather than making them go through a secondary application to get into a clan, if that makes any sense.
