General Questions with Spoilers

(Warning, the FAQs below might contain some spoilers, so if you really want to discover things on your own, you'd be better off not reading too far. This is not a manual. It's a self-help pamphlet.)

1. What are diamonds for?
Diamonds are magical portals into the future. Gaze into the depths of a diamond and you can see that which is to come.
Gullible? We sure hope not!
Lots of people love those little gemstones and are willing to trade things for them. Your local bartender is something of a gemologist.

2. How do you get diamonds?
To the mines with you!!
Actually, you can't mine them. (Well, you can, but only if you get lucky and find the mine. Warning though, mines can be dangerous.) Diamonds can be found on the dance floor during 'special events' that happen randomly - if you play often enough, you're bound to stumble across one at some point. Diamonds can also be gained very occasionally from a dace floor battle.

3. Why do some people seem to have so much energy at a low level?
Cause they're bigger than you.
No, really, they *are* bigger than you. You'll be big too someday.

4. Does that have something to do with the titles that people have?
But of course!
Indeed, every time you beat the aristocrat, you return to level one. If you beat the aristocrat enough times, you get a new title. So low level players with titles have had opportunities to embiggen themselves. (see Hall of Fame)

5. What's a buff?
It's what we use to shine our shoes.
Did you think it was some sort of temporary or permanent effect which affects your stats in a positive or negative manner? Hah!

6. Why does that old man keep hitting me with an ugly/pretty stick on the dance floor?
You look like a piñata!
It's a special event that can add or remove reputation.

7. Well, what's the point of reputation?
To show how popular or well known you are.
Well, actually, that *is* the point. Visit some folks at the Lofts, and you ought to be able to figure this one out. The more reputation you have, the more successful you'll be at making friends.

8. Okay, I saw the man on the dance floor and he hit me with his ugly stick, but it says I'm uglier than the stick, and I made it lose a reputation point. What's going on?
You're clearly the least experiences or popular person on the planet. And if you're the person who actually *asked* this question, you're also the dumbest. Use a little power of inference, wouldja? No. Really.
Okay, we did say you were the dumbest, so: it means you currently have zero reputation points.

9. How do I check my reputation?
Ask a bunch of people, see if they like you. If enough like you then there ya go.

10. Who is the Management?
Sara is in charge of this FAQ, but if something goes wrong, blame an invisible being. They're in charge of everything else. To get ahold of them, or one of their trusty helpers, use the Cop Call link.

11. How did they get to be so darn attractive, anyway?
Lots of at-home facials, my dear!! MightyE especially enjoys the Grapefruit Essence Facial Masque.
