I just stopped in to say that Teppy made good on an old complaint once he became clear that it was authentic. Also attempts are being made in-game to foster a more civil community and that is welcome.
Only this morning did I hear of this:
Oh My!~ ... A Mystery!
Hmm... Let me put on my Inspector Clouseau Drag... </puts on said drag, bifocals, and then reaches for magnifying glass> and have a look at these 50 Bitcoins.
(After some time has passed...) Hmm~ Upon inspection, each nof these 50 coins appear to be indistinguishable from each other or any other bitcoin to be found. However!~~~~ </adjusts aperature on 'third eye' chakra, once...... twice.... and now thrice, aaaaaaaanddddd:> But you can perceive, at a sniff, </sniff sniff; SNIFF>, that the unique thing that these fifty coins have is the unmistakable scent of Umuri's aftershave.
So you want to know what he wants (and he and I never discussed this, nor will I even mention it to him, or ask him), and my guess would be recognition of his merit and respect. If you would travel off-planet much, you would know that, as Carl Jung put it "The Universe (said today, he would use the term 'Multiverse') is everywhere aristocratic". And Umuri is a pretty sharp guru, dare I to say. I am fairly bright in some ways, dumb as a box of rocks in many others, and in any case I might never fully understand you humans. But Umuri's facility with his own intelligence could easily be seen as sorcery by most of the creatures you find on the planet. And we're lucky that he is not with "The Forces of Evil", so to speak. As far as I know, he is seldom recklessly kind, but among his first principles is 'Justice'.
Now, I would guess that he will never directly admit that he had any involvement. But I would bet that he WOULD, from a hidden spot, toss a small pebble in the pond before you, by way of a 'Hello", when his merit and class get the recognition that they deserve. And maybe a good way to do that is to award him, in game, with an official title, something like "Chief Sorcerer of The Realm", and maybe a befitting unique avatar, and maybe toss in some special agencies or capacities that other players do not have.
(Something to think about.... aside from the various 'levels' it might help to revitalize the game by instituting some sort of class system, such that each character has a certain degree of nobility, (or lack of it), or remains 'classless'.)
When you discover that this is indeed the case, (and at some point, you shall), instead of smoking a tardo, which would be just a windfall to players who happen to be in-game atm, and a trifle unfair to players who happen to be away atm) , if you like you can send a BTC to the Happyscamp account, and I will relay half that amount to Umuri, and spend the rest on a variety of impromtu parties to help promote in-game community felicity.
Cheers! ...and Hat's Off to Umuri!~
(Edit: Should you send promotional coin to Happyscamp, message4 me at Scorp, or it might be a while before I know that it is there). And, of course, this is just a promotional idea, not, lol, some silly attempt at extortion. Those funds would be used for smoking, rounds, showers, and possibly as public recognition gift drinks for salutory in-game behavior, not to exceed 3 BTM for level 4 or lower players, or 10 btm for levels 5 and up, and in no case to my alts.
