About Me

Real life:
I grew up in the central part of America, and graduated from high school in a small town in southwest Missouri. After high school I joined the United States Marine Corps and served for four years. I am in my early 20s and am a student at Missouri State University. I am a math major and a computer science minor, hoping to become an actuary.

Aardwolf:
I began my Aardwolf adventures at the age of 12, back in 1998. I created Scars May 9, 2003. I joined The Fellowship of the Twin Lobes, but left due to disagreements with the leaders of the clan. I joined The Crimson Horde on August 21, 2005, where I currently claim membership.

There have been many suggestions from the players on Aardwolf asking for certain subclasses to get a special bonus while using a specific skill or spell. However, in all previous implementations similar to this the players would quickly forget about the change because there was not central location for a player to be informed of the changes.

Because of this, it was noted that Lasher was not very encouraged to continue making changes in this fashion. It was my opinion that the reason causing the discouragement was unnecessary and correctable.

I also discovered that comparing subclasses of one class to each other required a great deal of effort on the part of the player. A player would have to read the @allspells [subclass]@ of each subclass to get a view of what skills and spells a specific subclass would get, and to compare to another subclass another @allspells [subclass]@ command would be required. Then the player would have to go through and mark off all of the skills or spells that both subclasses had in order to find the difference. Another method of seeing this was done by typing @allspells [class] subclass@.

Why Separate Help Files?

Through my experience playing Aardwolf, I have noticed that help files are in constant usage. Even the most veteran players in Aardwolf reference help files on a very routine basis. During many discussions with friends and fellow clan members in Aardwolf, I gradually discovered that if specific features did not have a help file to reference; the features are forgotten over a short period of time.

Contributions

My biggest contribution to Aardwolf has been initiating the writing of individual subclass help files. The help files were written on the test port version of Aardwolf by Citron and were further critiqued by players with access to that port.

My hope is that these help files make distinguishing the differences between the 28 different subclasses a much easier task. I encourage all players to post notes to the Ideas board for suggested additions or subtractions for these help files, and to the Typos board for any grammar and/or spelling errors.

A Brief History

I began my Aardwolf adventures at the age of 12. I created Scars May 9, 2003. I joined The Fellowship of the Twin Lobes, but left due to disagreements with the leaders of the clan. I joined The Crimson Horde on August 21, 2005, where I currently claim membership.
