weather-mastery

Certain spells are affected by the weather. For example, fire spells do less when it is raining and lightning bolt spells do increased damage when it is thunderstorming.

Those with the Weather Mastery skill are able take increased advantage of positive weather elements to do greater damage. For example, a druid with Weather Mastery will do greater damage using lightning spells in a thunderstorm than those using lightning without Weather Mastery. Weather Mastery II further improves the benefits that Weather Mastery confers.

Weather Masteries increase the base environmental effects listed under elements-and-environments by multiplying that by:

 base environmental modifier * (Weather Mastery I + II) / 50
So for example, if a druid had 90% in Weather Masteries I+II and was casting a lightning spell in during a downpour (which gives a base modifier of 20%), their net modifier would be 20% * (90+90) / 50 = 72* ... i.e. this turned the base bonus from damage due to lightning in a downpour from 20% to 72%.

who

Syntax:who [linkdead] [gods|lfg|<name>|<level>|<low level> <high level>]

Lists the people currently in the game. Some people may choose to remain unseen. If the "`bgods`n" parameter is used, a listing of all the active and visible gods will be shown. The "`blfg`n" option will show only those players who are currently looking for a group. If the player name parameter is used, only that player will show up on the who list. You can also get a listing of all players that are equal to or higher than "level" or who are between the levels of "low level" and "high level".

The linkdead clause will tell the mud to list people who are linkdead as well. (Normally people who are linkdead do not appear in the who lists...)

wimp-mode

See wimpy

wimpy

(also WIMP-MODE)

Syntax:wimp [hit points]

If you are in wimp mode, and are really low on hit points, you will automatically flee from the battle. This is a good mode to be in as people often lose link in combat or are terribly lagged and are can die even before they realize they are in mortal danger. However, if you have wimp mode set, the mud will auto-flee for you at a certain level.

If you do not specify the hit point level you would like to flee it, the mud will flee whenever you are less than 20% of your total hit points (you still must have wimp mode active, however).

The wimp command works like a toggle, if you enter "wimp" after you are already in wimp mode, the setting will be turned off.

write

Syntax:write [on] <paper name> [with] <pen name>
