Aarchaeology is a special ongoing game. The end of the game occurs when
you have collected all 50 pamphlets, although you are able to start
collecting again for additional rewards. Here is how the game is played:
- Once an hour (game time) a killable mob is randomly selected, much
like trivia mobs, to drop an Aarchaeology find upon being killed. (Note:
you will not receive the token if you do not gain experience from it.)
These finds will be looted regardless of autoloot, noloot, etc.
- Players find these aarchaeology pieces while exploring. The finding
player can either sell the piece via auction, or turn it in for a reward.
- All aarchaeology piece turn ins are done via the aarchaeology
professor, who jumps around the MUD after a player turns in an item.
He is nowhere, noscan and nohunt so finding him may be a challenge!
- Give the aarchaeology piece to the professor and he will reward you
an amount he feels is appropriate for the item.
- The professor will also give you a bag, if you don't have one, to help
store and carry around your aarchaeology pieces and pamphlets.
- Finally, he will give you a pamphlet that gives a little background
information on the item. Keep these pamphlets! When you save up all
fifty (50), he will reward you greatly and you will be recognized.
- If you had pamphlets in containers upon turning in the last piece, do
not fret! You can get all the pamphlets out of the containers and just
say "done" in front of the professor.
- The pamphlets cannot be sold to other characters, but the
corresponding aarchaeology pieces can. Buy/sell wisely!
- Announcing where the professor is at a certain time or asking if anyone
has seen him is completely legal.
- If you find that the professor has wandered into an illegal zone, such
as the laser zone, or has gotten himself stuck, please contact an imm.
- We've added a little help finding the professor. Just send him a tell
asking where he is, and he'll let you know. Keep in mind though he does
not sit still for long!
- See 'help aarchaeology-rewards' for the specific reward and pamphlet
number for each item.
- Type "lbid -f treasure special" to see only Aarch pieces and
other special collectible items on the market.
- While at the professor, type say check and he will send you a
personal note with a summary of the Aarchaeology items and pamphlets you
still need to collect. You'll need to remove all pamphlets from your
container before typing this.
- It is rumored there is a special wild card that can be used to help
complete your collection.
Aarchaeology can be won more than once. If you are able to collect all
fifty pieces again, the professor will add another stat to your already
existing reward, up to a max of ten stats. Once your item is maxed,
you will start over by receiving a new reward, which you can once again
start adding stats to as well.
Remember, your reward should either be worn or in your inventory to have
an extra stat added to it. If it's in a container, the professor may not
be able to see it, resulting in him giving you a second reward. Luck will
never be added to the reward.
Powerful relics can also be found randomly within the game, allowing you
to sway the professor into adding a specific stat to your ring. See
'help aarchaeology-relics' for details.
