Penny Story time:


A Wizard Escapes



The young wizard was very unhappy.  Things had just seemed wrong all day, and it frustrated him.  He couldn't put his finger on the problem, and it drove him crazy.  


As he trudged down the rutted roadway, he pondered his plight, regretting leaving home to start this journey, but reluctant to return all the same.  Lost in thought, he never noticed the man behind him until it was too late.  All thought faded to black as he fell to the ground.



When he woke up, he was in a dimly lit cell with several other people. It stank of urine and other even less savory things, and the sounds of moaning and weeping were horrendous.


Checking himself over, he was pleased to find that other than a bump on the head, he was uninjured.  He checked his pockets, found that they had left him his wand, and thanked his lucky stars.  Muttering a prayer, the young sorcerer went to a corner as far from the others as possible.  He began to chant softly, so as not to be heard, as he began the door spell.  Soon, the wall before him began to glow, at first very dimly, then brighter and brighter as he continued his incantation.  The other prisoners started to notice him by now and began to surge closer.  


With a loud *POP* a huge doorway appeared in the wall.  The wizard darted through, and narrowly missed being crushed in the stampede of bodies rushing behind him.  


Blindly, he rushed down the streets, looking for a place to hide until night, when he could steal a horse and some supplies.  Soon, he came to a narrow alley, and ducked in.  The alley stank, too, but not nearly as bad as the cell had, and for that he was grateful.  He slowed to a walk, and began trying doors.  On the third or fourth try, he finally found one that was unlocked, and he darted in as quickly as he could.  


It was dark inside, so he cast a simple light spell and began to look around.  As he explored, he listened carefully for the sounds of someone nearby.  


The first room he came to was the kitchen. He pulled the checkered tablecloth off the table and began to fill it with food. 


When he finished with this, he moved to the next room, which held a cot, a chair and a desk, and not much else.  There was a photo of somebody's grandparents on one wall, but other than that, there was no decor.  He searched the desk, but really didn't find much of anything.


Moving along swiftly now, with purpose, he searched the rest of the house.  He managed to scrounge up a tinder box, flint, some rope, a knife, and some string and fish hooks.  Deciding not to press his luck further, he left the dark residence.  


Outside, it was already past dusk, and the young mage scurried along looking for some signs of a stable or somewhere else that he could steal a horse.  Soon, he came to a courtyard with a well and some benches.  Dropping the tablecloth, he sank down on the nearest bench with a sigh of relief.  As he rested, he watched the fireflies around him and started to relax a little bit.  He was exhausted, and in minutes he had fallen fast asleep.  


When he awoke, it was just after dawn, and the birds were starting to sing.  Anxious to be rid of this place.  he decided to forgo the horse, and walked out of the city and disappeared into the countryside.

#998161 Backpack

I'm sure this has been covered, but I did a search and couldn't find a topic for it. Is it possible to get more spaces in my backpack, pay gold for more room? I need more items for a quest but keep running out of space.

Yes, in the upgrades section, at the top, you will find the Gold Upgrades tab.  There are BP slots in that list, but they are limited.  You can also buy BP slots with FSP.

One fine day I was perusing the Find Player list and noticed that a particular community manager was struggling with an extremely heavy load of gold.  After about 13 hours of hourly hits, I successfully relieved him of his burden.  The next day, I ended up losing 10 levels, as he posted every hit for a handful of dots each, then posted in the FSBox to let everybody compete.  As luck would have it, he swung back at me prior to posting, so, he lost a few too....

#997657 The wiki

considering that they published first version of app in 2012 and it is still not playable i have to say that you are merciless

I remember first signing up to help test an FS app when the idea was first mentioned by hoof, but it was well after 2012.  Late 2014 or early 2015.  And the first version was about a year in the making... idk what app you're referring to.

#997578 Double XP Event Soon!

Wait! We're doing one in December?!? We've not announced anything!

Well idk if anything is happening in December, outside of the aforementioned questions and speculations.  Quite possibly there really is a Santa Claus though

#997575 Double XP Event Soon!

At least now all the endless questions and speculation are over.... till December :P

Misguided? In what way might I ask? In the 8 months I have been back to the game, and a decade+ since I first logged into this game, and everything in between, I have seen most everything.


All I have seen lately is forum threads go unanswered, tickets sent to "customer service....." given the vaguest of answers, that don't remotely answer the question or rectify the situation.


This is not always the case.  

The lead programmer/HCS attendee/Boss that has been absent for who knows how long, yet is used as an ultimate answer giver/end all discussion.

Hoof is the boss to be sure, and is often unseen in the background, but he still shows up and "breaks" something quite often.

All I'm saying is congrats HCS on going from one of the most engaging company-to-consumer gaming companies out there to being one of the most........I don't even know what to call you anymore.


Like most of the rest here, I'm unsure why you think closing the forums is helpful for anybody.  It's still the first line of communication between us and the cows, and between each other.  


You seem to imply that nothing is accomplished in the FS world.  Not so.  Not including the app, recently added were things like:

  • Juvi's Thief in the Night Global
  • Quango quests up to EoC
  • BG hinting often of other new things in the offing

And judging by the buff showers from hooftest in recent days, the next version of the app will be released soon.  


I know that all of us are impatient, and some things seem to be taking much much longer to come into fruition but consider this.  It's summer and vacation season in cowland.  Things will undoubtedly go slower.  But progress is being made.


Sure, I wish all this would go faster.  We all do... But closing the forums or any other avenue of community communication is a really ill-advised idea, in this old lady's opinion.

#997525 The wiki

Wiki login has been more or less broken for some time.  BG is aware of this and says it's been passed on to hoof.  No clue when it will be fixed, but I imagine sometime after the next app update.
