download mushclient. make two worlds, one called "arctic one", the other "arctic two".

go to world settings, go to scripts. turn the script type to VB Basic.

create aliases. the simplest is z *, to output this:

set otherworld = world.getworld ("arctic two")

if not (otherworld is nothing) then
  otherworld.send "%1"
  set otherworld = nothing 
end if

turn the "send to" dropdown box to "script" in the alias. now in your main window, just type "z rest", and the other window will rest. now you play with one window, but in split screen. make sure to turn the output to script in the alias though or it won't work.

you can also set real aliases. i.e. in my thief window, i have an alias for "rit" to send "cast 'ritual voyage' thief" to my shaman, i generally on tank types use "qq" for assist, bite, swarm, then trigger instinct outputs to bite/swarm again... you can pretty easily create a ghetto setup that will make your life a lot easier

I also seem to recall a stat dump on the website that included other information like the number of characters at each rank, the number of characters with each spell, etc. Any plans to restore that at some point?

Or maybe I'm dreaming and that was never a thing, but I could swear it was at one point or another...

other ideas:

**double pk damage
**double medal rank (everyone solos!!!)
**double skill learn rate
**quadruple alignment change rate (for all those poor neutrals)

That is awesome! Thanks so much! I have been trying to get this information for years now. (and no, I am not being sarcastic, knowing which zones no one runs is important!)

Playing 2 characters without triggers and scripts is easy, you just have to decide to not be lazy. I simply open 2 clients and use alt-tab on a PC to switch between the characters.

If you are unable to manage playing 2 characters with the speed and precision you'd like then you're always welcome to simply play 1.

smart factories everywhere, autonomous driving, etc.

I played a custom codebase called The Forest's Edge from '97 till.. eh, some years ago. It was an amazing game for the non-PvP inclined... deep in story, rich in content.  But, the play was such that intrepid coders started making intricate full-class automated triggersets.. first for cleric, and then for other things.  When automated tanking became the standard, and people looked oddly at those who ran manually, I chose to leave.  Regrettable situation, especially since healing via trigger has been the standard in Arctic for a few wipes now. Bodes poorly.

This was actually not my event, I just helped run it.

The Top 3 feather catchers were:
   757 - Tahiry
   303 - Juxta
   259 - Ges

I can't speak to any bonus rewards (again, not my event), but I know these players were rewarded with *heaps* of steel coins for their efforts!

Hey Anista.  Just out of curiousity‚Ķ..What were the special prizes for the highest turkey turnins and how many did they turn in?

If willing to say.

It is hilarious I got this warning, as I am known for being a huge pain in the ass for people who wanted to peacefully cheat in my old guild, Myth. But hey... wag that finger all you want, Anista.

Peacefully cheat is a good way to say it.

In GSIV there's a pretty amazing overlay program that someone wrote ages ago that accepts scripts in Lua and Ruby. Basically you could script the entire game, every trigger, mob, spell and condition. But if you were caught, and they checked often, you would get a warning and after so many warnings a ban. Pretty rough for a P2P text based MUD, but hell even their script check emotes were becoming easy to trigger-check.
