@Rookie: Well, that's what the Introduction page is for. Click on Navigation on top to read details on how to move around. Personally I recommend using the numpad only - you don't need a mouse at all.

Picking up stuff: Also explained on that page, try GET or TAKE [ITEM] and DROP [ITEM]. Note that only things that are defined as items can be picked up, the rest is static at the moment. You will see that you can take itme when the room descriptions show at the bottom:

You see the following items:
- A piece of cheese

In Nepris for example we only have the items you are carrying - so you can try dropping them, taking them again, etc. In the Lorehold you find a piece of cheese in the cheese room near the kitchen, a note as part of the Gamoren quest etc. But there's a lot more we need to add content-wise. We've focused fully on the program engine for now.

@Mira: Yup, greenhouse would be fine :D

Santhworld Ranks will soon be available, where the percentage of your achieved score ia analyzed compared to the maximum points available per module. At the moment these ranks are not module specific, but this might change later. So that's why we keep the titles general for now.

Broken down the text that will be displayed by entering the SCORE command will look like this:

You currently have achieved a score of [Player score] out of a possible [Maximum module score] points. This qualifies you for the rank of

0%: Utterly Lost Person
0-10%: Good-For-Nothing
10-20%: Aimless Rambler
20-30%: Rookie Traveller
30-40%: Hobby Quest Collector
40-50%: Ambitious Explorer
50-60%: Aspiring Adventurer
60-70%: Respected Santharian
70-80%: Master of Puzzle Solving
80-90%: Valiant Santhworld Hero
90-100%: Official Santhworld Grandmaster
100%: True Santharian Legend

Not entirely happy with "Master of Puzzle Solving" e.g., so if there are suggestions what to adjust or add, please let me know.

Arti: this is probably just me, but the introduction page is *really* hard to find if you don't have a direct link to it. Which heading in the site menu is it under? (even with the search function it's really hard to find).

Quizmaster is grammatically fine but perhaps a bit too modern - why not 'Puzzlemaster' or "Mage of Puzzlery"?  :)

Er... "Quizmaster" sounds more like a game show host, doesn't it? lol Completing quests is more what we seek. I'm not such an English pro to know if "Mage of Puzzlery" would fit that bill (it could as well mean that you are somewhat making puzzles...). But it sounds quite cool nevertheless.

@Irid: The introduction page is directly available from the site menu by now. Just enter the site and then enter Santhworld through the Santworld link. You get the introduction page then, and from there to the program itself.

Oh >.> Obviously, I was trying to make it too difficult lol I didn't realise you could access it from the first page you get when entering, so I was looking under 'Treasures and Oddities' and couldn't find it :P

Are you going with "Mage of Puzzlery"?  (it does sound cool) 

If not, what about "Questmaster"?  I guess "The Riddler" is already taken, right?  (All together now:  "WRONG FANTASY UNIVERSE!) 

Perhaps  "Lord of the Puzzles"?  or "Puzzleknight"? (starts giggling helplessly and runs away before somebody brings out the whacking fish)

Ok, let's keep "Mage of Puzzlery" then - it has a certain ring to it, I'd say :) - Will send these details to Grinch for integration!

Hello all!

I want to give you a quick overview of the upcoming changes of the santhworld-program:

We redesigned the parsing of what the user types in. There are now pre-defined keywords. All of them have synonyms.
Every synonym links to its pre-defined keyword. E.g. speak. Synonymes are discuss, converse, discourse, chat, talk.
The outcome is, that there will be very few cases in which we don't understand what you just typed in.

Your achieved score will grant you a special title. You can print it out and nail it right over your bed ;)

You will be able to equip armor and weapons or turn on lantern. Simply, you can interact with your items. We can base conditions then to make quests more in depth.

In addition to all of that, there will be an all new battlesystem. Hopefully it will make quests, items and player progression much more interesting.

Features of the first version will be:

- Dynamically calculation of stats and attack values based on your equipment like:
hit/miss/critical/block/riposte chances and mitigation

- Experience points, level up and point distribution.

- Skills/spells for player and monsters like: debuff/damage/mesmerization/healing

- Area of effect attacks, both based on range and amount of targets affected

- Useable items with effects like: healing/manarefresh/buffs

- Coordinate system for players and monsters. They move on an invisible chessboard, interesting for displaying the battle
graphically later on.

- Range attacks with bows or slings

- Pictures and sounds for monsters and player

Actually we are pretty far with all of this but its still some work to do before this goes live. :D But keep an eye on this thread ;)

(jaw drops)

Are we talking about the same game here?  Santhworld?  Our little text-based room by room walk through with a hobbit chef, some mad mushrooms, and a room of cheeses?

(looks warily over her shoulder) 

Obviously I will need more than my dictionary and my belt knife the next time I visit...

As long as you keep playing your music and charm everything, you'll be just fine judith ;)

Actually it won't be all new, it's still a step by step project :)

I assume there won't be monsters lurking in the Lorehold, but the Nepris module will get the role playing stuff integrated bit by bit. :)

Grinch does a lot of work with the battle system, so the code already exceeds the whole main Santhworld program code! But until we can make it available for you to fight with a few zombies a lot of water will still run down the Danube - it's all a pretty complex thing, we need to define items according to certain types, items need be to equipable, the player needs to have varies properties and abilities as well, items need to affect those properties, monsters need to have other properties and abilities, and there are dozens of battle options... - So quite a task Grinch is tackling here!  cool

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
