Topics I've Started

My Resignation

26 February 2019 - 01:12 PM

Hey, I hope whoever is reading this is having a good day.

 

Some people have noticed that I no longer am a yellow-boi and wanted to just vocalize what happened.

 

Our staff team whether or not you agree with what they do or how they run things is doing incredibly fantastic right now, such a well-knit unit of community-loving people it's actually crazy. Not a lot of people give our team the credit they deserve for the thankless volunteer work that they put literally so many hours into each week whether it is in-game, on the forums, or even just in personal messages with other people, or hosting events etcetera.

 

Just wanted to give a quick shoutout to the current and late staff members we have/had on our team, you guys rock.

 

Anyways, I've felt like deadweight for a bit and have also been dealing with some personal issues for the last little while. Alora consumes me because I not only love the game but I love the community so much. I have been logging on and it feels like I'm just trying to make sure I have a presence on the server rather than just enjoying the game as I did in my first 6 months to a year as staff. I didn't want to resign but I felt like it was in my best interest, at least for right now. It's crazy what a 'video game' can do to you. I've made so many friends and had so many laughs and good memories that have stemmed from just hopping on an RSPS. Alora's community is unbeatable and I want to thank everyone for playing and enjoying the game.

 

I could give dozens of individual shoutouts but figured I'd just keep it at two, wanted to thank @Omicron for creating this game that has brought me so many good memories and helped me to meet so many amazing people. Keep doing what you do. Also, I can't thank you @Lowkey enough. When I was Server Support you just got promoted to CM and have been doing an outstanding job ever since. You were probably one of my first friends on the team and I don't see that ever going away. Thanks for giving me the opportunities you did and being such a loving and amazing person.

This month I will be interviewing Kaamea who has returned to the team

and our CM, Chief of Head Waxing, Alora Safety Administrator, Lowkey!

 

 

Hello, Kaamea

 

 

Dante: How does it feel being the Head-Veteran of Alora? What do your duties entail?

 

 

Kaamea: It honestly feels great to have such a great title which has such a big purpose, because self-promote is a beautiful thing.

 

 

Dante: Since you have come back to the staff-team and have other duties, is there someone else who is going to be considered the 'Head-Veteran'?

 
 
Kaamea: I will be passing the status to fellow countryman Inferno...
 
 

Dante: What was the most enjoyable part during your hiatus in terms of being staff?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably when I was promoted to Global Moderator made so many things easier and was able to vote on so many things as well.
 
 

Dante: If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a medal for?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably Counter Strike Source, because I love e-sports and that is game that I did grind a lot when I was a kid.
 
 

Dante: When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?

 
 
Kaamea: Usually ask to lend money, because I am known as someone who likes to save their money.
 
 

Dante: If you suddenly became a master at woodworking, what would you make?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably a boat, so I would be able to go fishing.
 
 

Dante: What age do you wish you could permanently be? Why?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably 25 old enough to drink and able to make own decision.
 
 

Dante: If you had unlimited funds to build a house that you would live in for the rest of your life, what would the finished house be like?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably something similar to this.
Spoiler
 
 

Dante: What’s something you’ve been meaning to try but just haven’t gotten around to it?

 

 

Kaamea: Start investing in stocks.
 

 

Dante: What would be your first question after waking up from being cryogenically frozen for 100 years?

 
 
Kaamea: Probably what the hell has been happening can't imagine being frozen for 100 years.
 

 

____________________________________

 

 

 

Hello, Lowkey!

 

 

 

Dante: If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

 

 

Lowkey: I would be going to the next Safety meeting with our Safety meeting coordinator Horror.

 

 

Dante: How was your trip meeting hsoJ?

 

 

Lowkey: I enjoyed my time there, met a ton of awesome people and took a big pooper on josh's toilet.

 

 

Dante: If you could be partnered with any sauce company to get free sauce for life, what sauce would you get?

 

 

Lowkey: Hidden Valley RANCH. I put that on hecking everything. My personal favourite is Frosted flakes cereal with a spoon full of Ranch right on top.

 

 

Dante: What is your perfect pizza and what needs to be on it?

 

 

Lowkey: Every type of meat (including yours, Dante) Also dipped in some ranch.

 

 

Dante: When Alora HQ becomes full built, who will be your two roommates in the apartment?

 

 

LowkeyKing purple so we have taco's and burritos on deck at all times of the hour and hsoJ so I can wake up every morning just to annoy him.

 

 

Dante: How many bags of flaming hot Cheetos do you think you could eat without water?

 

 

Lowkey: At least 4 bags, I personally enjoy sucking on every single Cheeto to get all of the hot seasonings off while drinking a gallon of Hidden Valley Ranch.

 

 

Dante: What is the ultimate Halloween Costume?

 

 

Lowkey: A bald monk with a hard hat, safety vest, and steel toe boots for Safety meetings.

 

 

Dante: What was your first job and did you like it?

 

 

Lowkey: My first job was working at Home Depot when I was 18. I worked as a stocker overnight and hated it.

 

 

Dante: What role in a movie do you think you would perfectly play?

 

 

Lowkey: I would want to play as a bald superhero. As I slaughter the bad guys with my shining head (which blinds them). I would then force them all to shave their heads bald and finally pull out my secret weapon (Rogaine). After they lather that onto their big heads, we watch the magic happen.

 

 

Dante: If you had $67 right now what would be your first order of business?

 

 

Lowkey: 3 Large pizzas, a $10 bond on Alora and a Donald Trump hat.

Alora Newspaper 11/28/2018

28 November 2018 - 07:09 PM

9kptQ7T.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to this month's edition of the Alora newspaper!

 

Hope you are all having a great day, enjoy reading.

 

 

1HFy851.png

 

Rule 9 and Rule 13 have received some minor changes, please acknowledge them: 

 

 

Date & time of updated rule: 16th November, 2018

 

Updated section: Rule #13.c - Ragging

 

Time of date that the update rule(s) will be put into effect: Immediately

 

Part(s) added, changed, or removed: Highlighted in YELLOW

 

Previously: 

 

• c. Ragging is prohibited in the wilderness or ::edgepvp on Alora in its entirety as it negatively affects our PvP community as a whole and debases the dignity of PvP. Alora's definition of a ragger is one who consistently goes out of their way to disrupt someone's experience in the wilderness or ::edgepvp by attacking them repeatedly (staff discretion will be used when infracting someone for ragging). All ragging reports must be reported with sufficient video proof. First offenders will serve 5 hours in jail, followed by a 24-hour ban, with an ending result of a permanent ban.

 

Updated: 

 

• c. Attacking a player with only 1 item or essentially no valuable risk with the intent to negatively effect another player's experience in the wilderness is against the rules and will not be tolerated. (ex. Using a ZGS and constantly returning to a specific area or person and harassing the player.) This rule is applied to the entirety of PvP across Alora.

 
However, certain areas of PvP will follow specific rules.  While in Edgeville and ::edgepvp, the act of griefing fights will not be allowed. (ex. Walking over players constantly or placing items such as cannons down.)
 
Pjing/Rushing is allowed; But if reported with sufficient evidence of being an on-going issue and considered harassment, it will be dealt with by staff discretion.
 

First offenders will receive a 5-hour jail followed by a 24-hour ban, increasing to a 7-day ban, and finally, a permanent ban. 

 

 

 

Date & time of updated rule: 19th November, 2018

Updated section: Rule #13.b - Scouting

Time or date that the updated rule(s) will be put into effect: Immediately

Part(s) added, changed or removed: Highlighted in YELLOW

 

Previously:

  • • b. Multi-logging in the wilderness is allowed if you have no interaction between any of your accounts. If you have one account skilling in the resource area, and another account killing people in the Revenant Caves this is OK. It is not OK, for example, to skill in the resource area and kill other players there on your alternate account. It is also not allowed to use a second account to protect your accounts in the wilderness.

Updated:

  • • b. Multi-logging in the wilderness is allowed if you have no interaction between any of your accounts. If you have one account skilling in the resource area, and another account killing people in the Revenant Caves this is OK. It is not OK, for example, to skill in the resource area and kill other players there on your alternate account. It is also not allowed to use a second account to protect your accounts in the wilderness. Scouts are also allowed to an extent, as long as they do not allow an unfair advantage over other players in the Wilderness. Firstly, scouts must be Level 3 combat and have ABSOLUTELY NO ITEMS equipped or in their inventory. Secondly, for example, if you bring a scout to the Chaos Elemental to see who is there before teleporting there, this is okay. It is not okay, however, to plant a scout outside of the Rev Caves entrance while you kill Revs so that you can see when PKers are coming.

I have decided to interview our newest Server Support Sassafras, and our most beloved member Trailer Park! I hope you enjoy hearing what they had to say.  ^_^ 

 

 

Greetings, @Sassafras.

 

 

Dante : How are you liking being a Server Support for Alora?

 

Sassafras: It's chill, it's nice to be helping solve problems behind the veil. I'm getting more exposure to how streamlined the process is, and I can't wait to gain more experience at it.

 

Dante: What is one down-side you've come across being staff on Alora?

 

Sassafras: I'll admit I'm struggling a bit with the no-AFK staff rule, but it's just something I'll adapt to. Playing two accounts while staffing is also harder than I thought!

 

Dante: What is something very simple that you find most people get wrong?

 

Sassafras: Brushing their teeth. You shouldn't be trying to saw off your teeth with the brush, just vibrate it in one small spot and repeat that throughout your whole mouth.

 

Dante: If you could live in any era before the one we're in now, when would it be and why?

 

Sassafras: Probably the late 1400's, I think the age of exploration would have been incredible to witness first-hand . Of course that's only if I wasn't one of the unlucky to die from disease/poor nutrition.

 

Dante: What is your greatest achievement?

 

Sassafras: I think my best achievement was finishing college in 4 years. I went through a rough period and almost dropped out of school my sophomore year. I had to take a full load of credits every semester until graduation to make up for it, but I finished on-time when I didn't really believe I could do it.

 

Dante: What is your closest close-call?

 

Sassafras: I was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident a couple years ago. Was riding on the back of a friend's bike with no protection (stupid), and it started wobbling like crazy at high speeds.

 

 

Dante: What is the worst purchase you've ever made?

 

Sassafras: An airsoft rifle: Spent $200 of hard-saved allowance, used it once, and moved onto other things.

 

Dante: What is your favorite pass-time (besides Alora)?

 

Sassafras: Getting really drunk and watching terrible movies. If you ever want to almost die laughing, watch some of Neil Breen's movies or "The Room". The stupider the better.

 

Dante: What is the most irritating thing someone can do?

 

Sassafras: Litter. Just don't do it, it's infuriatingly lazy. Take the extra 30 seconds and throw it away in a garbage/recycling bin. So many beautiful places around me are ruined by trash, and it could be easily avoided.

 

Dante: What is the worst thing to have a phobia of?

 

Sassafras: Snakes, they're such amazing and curious animals.

 

____________________________________

 

 

Next on our list is Trailer Park!

 

 

Greetings, @Trailer Park.

 

 

DanteHow does it feel to be the most beloved person on Alora (to me)?

 

Trailer Park: It feels neat as heck it rustles my jimmies when you shoot kissy emojis at me.

 

 

Dante: What is your favorite thing to do outside of PKing on Alora?

 

Trailer Park: When I'm not PKing you can find me helping the special needs kids of Alora.

 

Dante: What is your most memorable moment that you are willing to share?

 

Trailer Park: My most memorable moment is when me and Horror made friendship bracelets together.

 

Dante: Do you play any other games outside of Alora?

 

Trailer Park: The only other game I play is farm simulator because I was meant to plow.

 

Dante: What is the most interesting fact you have about yourself?

 

Trailer Park: I'm the most interesting person I know because of my uncontrollable drinking problem.

 

Dante: If you could meet one person IRL from Alora who would it be?

 

Trailer Park: I'd want to meet Jonttu and give him English lessons.

 

Dante: What is your dream job?

 

Trailer Park: My dream job is yelling at people for money.

 

Dante: Which movie do you wish you were living in?

 

Trailer ParkSchindler's list.

 

Dante: Which person on Alora would be the worst leader of a Country?

 

Trailer Park: Lowkey would be a terrible leader he'll set the country back like his hairline.

 

Dante: What is the highest pressure situation you've been in and how did it go?

 

Trailer Park: I had to poop once on a lift 50 storeys up with the wind shaking us I never made it and pooped myself then cried.

 

Thank you for answering these questions, Trailer Park !

One-Year Anniversary

06 November 2018 - 07:22 PM

Hey everyone!

 

I'm not looking for kudos or anything like that, just wanted to vocalize something that has been on my mind lately, and happened to creep up on me.

 

As of today, November 6th 2018, I've officially been on the Alora staff team for one year. There are no balloons and there is no cake but I just wanted to make a post because I think this is one of my biggest milestones to date.

 

I've had a lot of ups and downs being on the staff team, and I believe I've done more good than bad (I hope) since I've been working alongside the other members of the team.

 

I would like to personally thank Lowkey for doing such an amazing job, and although I wasn't initially promoted to Server Support a year ago by him directly, he has been in reign of the team for Alora for almost the entire time I have been around. There have been a lot of members who have come and go, and I owe a lot to the other members of the team at any point in time I was on it for everything that they've taught me.

 

That's as far as I wanted to go with this, there isn't much to be said overall, lol. Just a happy moment since Alora has been so close to me for the past year and a bit since I've joined (May 2017). I've made some incredible friends along the way that I believe will go further than my time here, and I've learned a lot of new things as well.

 

I've played RSPSs for as long as I can remember, and I can honestly say Alora has the best community of any server I've ever been apart of, and has an amazing team running it. Big kudos to you Omicron for creating such an amazing game for thousands of players to enjoy!

 

 

Some Honorable Mentions:

 

Omicron, Lowkey, King purpleSalterhsoJDraisaitlSheepTo gainMoeScuffed EIMNot HellishCode 002M A C KHC KAZOOPaineEIM 1gpNeckryaelLord AizenPostimeesThorruF 8, uTorrentSceneryMewtwoJareCollerkar76HarisErrorSyntaxCasualRamonMtamRyuuThunkLord of RatsChaseD ScimmyWreckageDoctor DrewHondeneiAnother CowEIM HentaiElite UltimaKaameaEim 40aMobIron AritusRaud Flame IClassic jokeTrailer ParkHorrorMADASFUK , and most importantly ragragrag46 (dont hate me for muting you so much).

 

The list can go on and on, most of these were off of the top of my head, I would like to thank our current Server Supports as well but they are still slaves and need to earn their specific tag :Kappa:

 

And I can't tag everyone like I can in discord (although I think everyone would hate me even more than they already do) but I would like to thank the community as a whole for helping me create some awesome memories on this fun journey I've been on so far.

 

That's it. Road 2 Year 2 achievement thread coming soon with a nice loot tab as well.

 


Alora Newspaper 10/01/2018

01 October 2018 - 04:05 PM

9kptQ7T.png

Hello everyone, welcome to the newest edition of the Alora Newspaper! 
 
This month we have a few rule changes, some updates to our staff team
 
and a few in-game updates!
 
1HFy851.png
Added/changed:
 

7. Account Sharing

 

An account should be used by one person only. There are no cases or circumstances where another person is allowed to play on your account. This goes for all types of accounts whether it is a level 3 scout for the wilderness, a shared account people used to Teleblock other players, or an account you would share with a friend. There is absolutely zero tolerance for account sharing in any way, shape, or form and people will be punished with a Permanent ban for both parties.

 

  • a. Any attempt to give an account away will not be tolerated on Alora. Offenders will receive a Permanent ban on the account being given away. 

 

Previously:

 

Account sharing: We've changed our stance to now allow account sharing. We say this firmly with no exceptions; If you are hacked by a friend or anyone that YOU allow onto your account, it is all on you. We hold no responsibility for hacked accounts due to account sharing. This also applies if your account is breaking rules. If you allow someone onto your account and they get your account punished, the punishments will stick.

 

 

• a. Buying/Selling (even if free) any type of service for an account is prohibited ex: Inferno cape service. First offenders will receive a 7-day ban with a wipe of the cape and GP used to make this exchange, the second offence will result in a Permanent ban. 

 

   • b. Any attempt to give an account away will not be tolerated on Alora. Offenders will receive a Permanent ban on the account being given away.

Since the last Newspaper there has been one new update that dropped on 9/20/2018
 
Here is the contents of that update:
 
  • Patch notes:

     

    • Theatre of blood passages fixed
    • Blast Furnace updates:
      • All bars can now be smelted in the Blast Furnace (fixes Gold, Steel, Iron)
      • Maximum amount of time you can buy in 1 shot for the Blast Furnace is 5 hours (to avoid people spending their entire cash stack)
    • Ironman/Classic/Elite were unable to see ‘global’ items such as Snape grass spawns following the previous update. This has been fixed.
    • “Stomp” emote would not work in certain areas, giving the “You cannot use this emote in the wilderness” error message. This should no longer occur outside of the wilderness.
    • A warning message will now be given upon login to players using an outdated client. Anyone using a client from August or prior to will not be able to play Alora after October 9th, so we strongly urge you to get the latest client if you see this error message.

     

    Hello everyone,

     

    Today’s update is slightly delayed as I had to work on our security extensively this month. Now that I feel comfortable with the current state of things in terms of security, we can get back to the frequent updates  :) This update is packed with many QOL updates, as well as some content which many of you will find useful such as the Blast Furnace. We’ve also managed to squeeze in some bug fixes, as well as some other cool things such as the metamorphosis Raids 1 pet and auto-looting coins with the Ring of wealth.

     

    Please note that some of these updates (particularly the bug fixes) may have already been applied in-game, but were not yet included in an update thread.

    • Server:
      • Ladder/Staircase changes:
        • When using a ladder or staircase on Alora, you would previously be delayed 1 tick (0.6s) while you perform the animation.
          • This has been removed, and you will instantly use the staircase or ladder, similar to on OSRS.
      • Crafting guild fixes/changes:
        • The Crafting guild had many weird looking objects such as stalagmites, ice columns, etc that did not belong there. This map has been fixed entirely.
        • With the above fix, the following has changed:
          • More ores (particularly gold ores) can be mined.
          • A staircase to go upstairs to multiple Spinning wheels is now available.
      • Paul right-click trade:
        • We know how much some of you loved navigating through Paul’s dialogue to get to the Ironman shop, but unfortunately we’ve decided to add a right-click “Trade” option to speed things up for the rest of us!
      • Barrows change:
        • The dig radius around mounds has been increased.
      • Music cape emote:
        • The Music cape emote, “Air Guitar” has now been added.
      • Theatre of Blood fixes:
        • Sotetseg’s projectile attacks that disable prayer were disabling it too early — upon performing his animation, not upon the projectile landing on you. This has been fixed.
        • Fixed a problem with prayer icon not turning off (Chivalry)
        • Fixed an issue which blocked you from attacking some of the spiders in the Nylocas wave.
      • Rejuvenation pool update (in POH):
        • Rejuvenation pools can now be used to restore your health, special attack, run energy, prayer and cure poison with only half the usual delay provided that you have not been in PvP combat within the last 3 minutes.
          • This does not apply to the rejuvenation pool at home, but only to the ones location in player-owned-houses.
      • Blast Furnace:
        • The Blast Furnace is now accessible! It can be reached through the Minigames section of the Teleport Wizard’s menu.
          • How does it work?
            • The Blast Furnace allows you to smelt bars while only using half the required amount of coal, while still receiving full experience. 
            • Ores are deposited onto the conveyor belt, and then smelted within seconds.
            • You can collect your bars from the dispenser, which may be cooled down with a bucket of water.
              • You can optionally use Ice gloves to collect your bars rather than cooling down the dispenser.
            • There is a bank chest very close to the furnace.
          • Cost:
            • The cost to smelt your bars in the furnace is 480k GP per hour. You can pay this fee to Ordan every hour, or pay him for many hours at once. This is to cover the labor of the 5 dwarves who run the machinery. You may find these dwarves’ names familiar. If your time runs out, you will not be able to deposit any more ores onto the conveyor.
              • You will be notified of your time remaining in the Blast Furnace periodically, and notified when your time runs out.
          • Notes:
            • You can store up to 200 ores in the melting pot.
            • If you logout, any ores or bars within the machinery will be lost.
      • Ice gloves:
        • These gloves, which allow you to collect bars from the Blast Furnace without needing to use a bucket of water, can be purchased from the Loyalty Point store for 50k points.
      • Buckets of water:
        • Buckets of water (used in the Blast furnace) can now be created:
          • Empty buckets can be purchased in the General/Ironman/Classic shops, and can be filled at any water source. 
            • There is also a bucket spawn at the Blast furnace.
    • Chambers of Xeric reward update:
      • A new reward has been added to Raids 1: Metamorphic Dust!
        • This item can be used on an existing Raids 1 pet (Olmlet or Vanguard) to give your pet the ability to morph between 6 different Raids pets:
          • Olmlet, Mini Vanguard, Vasa Minirio, Tektiny, Vespina and the Puppadile!
        • Previously, there were only 2 pets that you could get (separately) through the raid, the Olmlet and Vanguard. These pets still function as usual, and are both still rewards from raids. The Vanguard can also be purchased in the donation shop. Note that the Metamorphic dust can be used on either of them to get the same final result (morphing pet).
      • How do I obtain it?
        • The Metamorphic dust can be obtained through the Chambers of Xeric if you’re lucky, with the drop rate being 1/400 as long as you complete the dungeon within average time and points.
          • This roll is completely separate from the usual drop table, so it will not affect your chances of obtaining other loot.
    • Ring of wealth update:
      • The Ring of wealth (and it’s imbued version) can now optionally auto-loot your coins and tokkul from slain enemies! You can toggle this setting by right-clicking either ring and selecting the “Features” option.
      • Miscellaneous bug fixes:
        • Barbarian icons (defender, attack, healer, collector) will now be worn in the glove slot rather than the cape slot, allowing you to wear a cape while having an icon equipped.
        • Justiciar armour requirements fixed (75 defence)
        • Pathfinding bug:
          • Fixed a major bug which allowed players to interact with objects/npcs/etc even though they were not close enough. For example, if you somehow could stop your movement forcefully (being frozen in combat or by other means) you could enter a cave from many steps away.

     

    • General
      • Further improvements have been made to our protection systems for DDoS attacks. We were hit with some attacks just over a week ago and did experience bouts of lag, but the server never fully crashed which is a great sign, and the attacks were mitigated relatively quickly. We’ve made even more changes to improve our firewall, and we’ll continue monitoring and improving our systems as required.
      • We've also improved our stability and are able to have longer uptime without lag as many of you have likely noticed  :)

     

    • Store:
      • Pet booster price reduced to 10 tokens from 15 to more accurately reflect its value.

Dante: Do you have any ancestral sets I can borrow?

 

Smiv: Currently borrowing a set if you would like to borrow it..?

 

Dante: What is your favourite thing about the Alora community?

 

Smiv: My favorite aspect of the Alora community is the uniqueness. You have people from all different parts of the world. So i think it's cool to hear and learn about what everyone does around their different environments.

Dante: What is the most difficult part about being on the staff team?

 

Smiv: I would say the most difficult part of being on the staff team is competing with the other members to help others. Whether it assisting people with certain things on forums or being in the Alora clan chat assisting players.


Dante: What is your favourite pass-time besides video games?

 

Smiv: My favorite pass time IRL is playing soccer. I've played soccer all my life and through high school I was chosen all conference / all state mention and continue to play now post high school in a Sunday league.
