95 AP

Timestamp: 01:28, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Kyosuke Aoki
Status: not a bug
Severity: high
Description: For some reason, when I logged on today, I had 95 AP, as a pirate. I thought the AP cap was 75, not 95. I used some AP until I got to 82, and the AP doesn't regen past that.

I saw this on two of my chars. --Htkl 02:53, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Happened to me too. From 0 to 20 AP with 20 minutes passed (should be 1 AP). I suggest not fixing this ;). --Wulla-mullung 03:24, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I started a forum thread on this as soon as i noticed, all my characters had it. Pretty cool, maybe its a bonus for us, not a but. I'm going back to the thread now to see. --Rozen 05:39, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

maybe simon made the ap limit higher. ;) good for us! -Elegost 10:46, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

  • It was a one-off bonus of 20AP.. not a bug. --Simon 20:21, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Severity: low
Description: I'm at trader Harry's hut in York and decide to trade gold coins for gems. He says:
You ask to trade your gold coins for his gems. Trader Harry makes you an offer, "Gems are in short supply so I want more than the usual price. I want thirty four gold coins for a gem"

When I try to trade gems for gold coins he says: You ask to trade your gems for his gold coins.

Trader Harry makes you an offer, "I'll give you four gold coins for a gem"

Are you a new/old trader, is he happy to see you or bored with your presence in his store? Are you using a native character? Either of these conditions could result in over the top price differences, or it could just be a bug! --Simon 15:41, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Probably old Outsider. He keeps saying something about how there's an entire island to explore, but I don't see how that can account for a 850% price difference. --One of many doctors 01:30, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
It's a "feature" of the trading, although it does seem a little harsh. --Simon 12:49, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
"blunt knives are in short supply so I want more than the usual cost. I want two knives for a blunt knife." today. This isn't a glitch but you should still fix it. why don't we suggest blunt and non-blunt weapons being added together for the price? --AlexanderRM 00:30, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Contact list numbers

Timestamp: 21:24, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Logged by: Frisco
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: My contact list for player id #74 somehow got 52 contacts on it. I can't add anymore - the contacts.cgi page says: "You have 52 added so far and can add -2 more." - but i was wondering if there was a bug that allowed me to get 52 contacts, or if the restrictions that were in place weren't effective until a couple days ago (i don't recall when i last added to my list), or if there's some off-by-two math errors going on. I counted up the number of contacts i have, and indeed there are 52.


  • Restrictions have been in place from the start. Probably just a buglet and I've a fairly good idea where. --Simon 13:17, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Sharpening Stone Glitch

Timestamp: Jan. 06 2006(UTC)
Logged by: Earl Madness
Status: new
Severity: medium
Description: sharpening stones don't dissapear when I use them.

This isn't a bug, it's normal. You wouldn't normally use an oilstone once and throw it away. However, perhaps sharpening stones should wear out after a number of uses. Might be worth proposing on the forum or wiki suggestion page. --Simon 19:14, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Can't pick or change clans

Timestamp: 13:09, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Crowjane and all alts
Status: new
Severity: med
Description: The edit profile page neither allows me to change my clan nor pick more than one clan.

Visit the relevant clan page, join the clan by clicking the button. Visit another clan page, click the join button. By default, the primary clan will be the first one you joined, but using the edit profile page, you can change your primary clan to be the other one. This is slightly different to how the edit profile clan section used to work, but given that there are more restrictions possible on the clans now, it seemed a logical change. --Simon 22:08, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Haggling Text when Selling

Timestamp: 23:39, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Johan Crichton
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: When you're selling items to a trader, if you have haggling you get a message about the trader not prepared to lower his prices (IIRC). Shouldn't it be that the trader isn't prepared to pay more?

Redirect on login to //game.cgi

Timestamp: 05:12, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Johan Crichton
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: When you login to Shartak, the redirect often takes you to http://www.shartak.com//game.cgi (double slash before game.cgi), while a quick refresh while get you to http://www.shartak.com/game.cgi this seems possibly a quick bug to fix.

This isn't a problem for the average user - but for those of us with greasemonkey scripts it can be problematic - and avoiding a refresh of the page would seem desirable?

I was to post it myself, quite an annoying one - Lama.

Don't get XP when hitting someone with glancing blow

Timestamp: 21:58, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Che, slayer of Arminius.
Status: not a bug
Severity: low
Description: When attacking Charles the Dead, I noticed I only received 1 XP when I hit him for 3 damage. That isn't the bug. It was when I hit him with a glancing blow I didn't get any XP. This may be a bug, or it could be whatever.


  • This seems to be fairly simple. When you attack someone of your same faction, you get 1/2 XP as normal, rounded down. So instead of 1.5 XP for 3 HP damage, you get 1 XP. And instead of .5 XP for 1 HP damage, you get none. -Mark D. Stroyer 02:46, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Quite right. This is not a bug. :) --Simon 14:52, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Buying Items over Inventory limit

Timestamp: 03:20, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Johan Crichton
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: While I don't think I could trade for more items to carry, it was possible for me to buy (with gold) the item putting my invsize at 72 / 70. This seems wrong?

Item multiplication in holes

Timestamp: 13:38, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Xintlaer
Status: new
Severity: critical
Description: I dug the maximal depth of hole right south of the pirate shaman. Then I dropped a blowpipe into it, yet it didn't dissapear from my inventory, so I repeated it three times. Afterwards I filled the hole with earth up to the top, and the blowpipe was still in my inventory. When I dug back into the ground I found 3 blowpipes... I believe that this may lead to item multiplying and players multiplying their gold to insane amounts.


  • Shhh... don't tell everyone ;) Seriously though, this does seem like a bug, but I could have sworn this was fixed during testing. I'll have a poke around and see what's going on. --Simon 14:55, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Tracking: A body is right here!

Timestamp: 06:34, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Johan Crichton
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: I was tracking a large stag, and killed it. Afterwards, I looked for tracks in the same square and was told:

Dense jungle with a few tall trees and plenty of vines hanging from them.
Also here is the body of a large stag.
There are a few tracks here.
A large stag is right here!
I have to assume the large stag that was 'right here' was the body... Which doesn't seem right?


  • That would be because the deer did not leave the square. If it had, that would trigger the change. But this is useful when you discover a player body, because you can track and see whether the body is outsider or native. And whether outsider or native killed the player. -Mark D.

New clan not showing up

Timestamp: 02:43, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Black Joe
Status: not a bug
Severity: med
Description: I created a new clan last night. It shows up when I go to the "Clans" screen and click "Edit my current clan", but it doesn't show up in my profile, nor does it show up on the list of clans. Clan ID is 165.

93. Shartak Merchants' Association
It's currently showing in the list of clans. Are you a member of your clan?--Johan Crichton 06:59, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

It does indeed show up - I should make the clans be listed by id rather than whatever the database order is. To add it to your profile, you need to join the clan using the clanview page ([1]) - the profile part only lets you change which is your primary clan. --Simon 22:11, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

Two dead animals

Timestamp: , 11:57, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
Logged by: Postcardsaremine
Status: new
Severity: low
Description: I killed two wild boars today. But i had this:

Here you can see Michael Edwards (84 of 85 HP). Also here is the body of a wild boar, and the body of a wild boar.

shouldn't it say something like there are two dead wild boar bodies here. or something shorter?

This is just like "Also here is a tiger, a tiger and a wild boar." instead of "Also here are 2 tigers and wild boar." At some point this may be fixed, but probably not any time soon. --Simon 22:00, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
