The Styxx Gorge Skirmish
Published Date 2024-03-19T09:13:32

Due to occasional requests and questions in general, I have decided to hold a mini-tournament. To do this, I need at least four combatants and three judges (the latter of which that are not entered into the fray). Since we have met those requirements, I'll be holding the STYXX GORGE SKIRMISH sometime in April!

If four more people sign up, I will do a full-fledged tournament, so if you're interested in being on the roster to fight, send me a MUDmail or reach out to me on the Discord with the character you'd like to enter. Otherwise, our little mini-tournament is just fine.

Judges are in the The Assembly of Judges, so you are allowed to request feedback whether you win or lose. To request feedback, you'll need to send a MUDmail to Hojn.

Tournament Rules

1. All duels must be completed in the Styxx Gorge Arena. If you are unsure where this is, ask me. You can also type twist to styxx gorge if you have a glass ring, then type styxx gorge map to bring up a link to a map you can look at to find your way to the Arena.
2. No poisoning of your opponent. Temporary maladies that are non-life threatening are allowed.
3. If you are a shifter that can change or turn someone into what you are, then you are not allowed to do anything that would achieve that result, aka, no turning your opponent into a shifter.
4. No mind control spells.
5.No autohits or godmoding. If you aren't sure what those are, please ask.
6. No disrespect of the judges and/or combatants is allowed. Disrespect can be defined as complaining about their judgment, belittling an opponent's win, or bad attitude surrounding a loss. If this rule is broken, you will be barred from future tournaments hosted by yours truly. Obviously, this is an OOC rule.
7. Have fun!

Tournament Prizes

1. 10,000 gold.
2. Access to a few game secrets.
3. A wishing card to be cashed in at your leisure.

5,000 gold.

The current state of the tournament is here:

Combatants were paired up using the /roll 20 command, then paired up in order.

Please request entry as a combatant by April 1st, 2024 so that we can hopefully get the tournament started by April 8th, 2024 if you wish to participate. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!

If you're interested in just watching the duels, our Discord will probably be where individuals do their planning to meet up and get the ball rolling. So if you just want to hang out in the audience, the Discord is the place to stalk for dates.

Here's hoping for a good time! See all of you there!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you!

So I have not been very active for you on providing new things on here, but I did manage to fix some longstanding issues, that hopefully make playing more easy.

I firmly believe that 2024 will be a great year, for us all and for the Land of Karchan as well.

Release notes - version 2.0.12
Published Date 2023-10-05T12:02:46

It's been a while since I've put up a new version. Let me know of any breakage.

I'll but some Release Notes here when I have a moment.... which is now.


replaced big talk editor
I replaced the CKEditor 5 I use for Big Talk with @kolkov/angular-editor. The main reason being that CKEditor is a javascript editor that requires some changes to make it fit for Angular, while the new one is created for Angular specifically and the integration is soo much better.
fixed up chatlog

There've been issues for a long time with chatmessages, so it needed a more thorough change. I refactored it to its own component and moved most of the functionality related to it into its own service, which checks if websockets is on or off.

I make no guarantees that things work dandy now, but at least it makes it easier for me to make changes.

chatline ownership

Chatlines now have an owner. There're two new commands 'editchat' and 'deletechat'. Also, the existing chatlines are owned by nobody. Ask a dep to fix this.

Type "help chatlines" to find out how it all works.

user interface

You might have noticed some small changes to the user interface, let's break it down!

  • chatlog area is now bordered above and below
  • clear and reset are now "part" of the chatlog "area" and no longer clutter up all the buttons below your input field
  • autocorrect and autocapitalize are turned off in the command input field.
  • in your settings you find a new item called 'Debug logging'. Don't bother with it.

    Unless you are a developer and can open up the javascript console of your browser to see logmessages. If you are interested, you can change this value to the one you like, "DEBUG" for all logging, "SEVERE" only for the serious bits that break.

Release Notes

  • Fixed #226. Admins can now add several attributes in one script.
  • Fixed #221. Admins can now create several items in one script.
  • Fixed #229. Changing your own passwords in settings doesn't work. It does now.
  • Fixed #217. Checking the who in-game cleared your chatlog. Fixed.
  • Fixed #214. Chatlines now have ownership. Added two commands editchatline and deletechatline.
  • Fixed #60. Admins can now turn on (playing) or turn off (not playing) bots and shopkeepers.
  • Fixed #212. Issues with chatlog fixed. Hopefully.
  • turned off autocapitalize and autocorrect on the command input field. It was a personal source of irritation for me that on my phone my commands were capitalized, and then the server says "I don't understand that.".
  • replaced CKEditor 5 with @kolkov/angular-editor
  • did something interesting with debug logging (for developers)
  • updated karchanpersonal to the new angular 16.2.8
  • updated karchanadmin to the new angular 16.2.8

High regards,

Isle of Coldridge 2023 - Phantasmagoria
Published Date 2023-09-15T19:03:29

Greetings everyone, and Happy Spooky Season!

It is that time of the year where the annual ISLE OF COLDRIDGE event kicks off, usually starting in October until it's completion!

This is our third year holding this event, which changes in theme every year while centering around a mysterious island.

This year, the theme is THE ISLE OF COLDRIDGE 2023 - PHANTASMAGORIA!

All manner of ghosts and ghouls may be in your way should you choose to attend a very specific event.

Interested in joining this year's fun? The sign up sheet will be posted on the "coldridge-event" channel on Karchan's Discord server, so have a look at that, read the info, and if you want to be involved on the definite, sign your character's name at the bottom so I can gauge interest. I'll only hold the event if we have at least (4) participants other than myself and Zaria.

As usual, our wonderful Dice Maiden, Zaria, will be acting as DM for the rolling we'll be doing. Be sure to thank her for all of her help. These events would have never been possible without her.

If you're curious what past events looked like, they are on the wiki, and the link to that is here. The rolls and ooc things have been removed so it's just the plot for length purposes.

If you have any questions, simply pose them on the discord. Once you've signed up, I will assign you the role necessary to participate in the coldridge-event channel.

Good luck and have fun! I'm excited to see you there.

By Victoria.
