    The way some Aetolian families work out, having someone share an aunt/nephew relationship while also being cousins isn't exactly a huge stretch.

    I suppose? These are actually not cousins, according to the bloodlines. Not really the point though. And either way, that kind of what-are-you-to-me confusion is not really uncommon in real life, and most people tend to group people by the closest applicable grouping even if it's not the most accurate. 'Hey Cuz' is much less wordy than 'hey second cousin twice removed' :p

    "Accidentally". I really don't feel like there is any "accident" when you commit to that kind of RP.

    I'm not sure why this bloodline thing would matter enough to be any kind of annoyance to anyone... I genuinely don't understand.

    I guess if we have a toy it might as well work properly but even then I'm still unsure of it's relevance to Aetolian life? I've been out of the game for a while so maybe I'm missing something.

    Don't know about other people, but I routinely forget who people are and how they're related to me. Especially on characters with extensive families. I don't know about you, but I generally don't forget the names of my siblings and I personally have 9 of them. I've never even met one of them and I still know her name. That's mostly what I use the bloodlines for--stuff I would remember and sorting out which familiar titles to use when I already know the person and have forgotten the relation, mostly.

    @Haven, some people reference relations more than others. When you interact with multiple such people and all their relations are confusing, it becomes a bit tedious to keep track of who they're talking about. Example (not a real conversation I've had, but it showcases the problem):
    A says, "Oh, I was so upset with my brother last week. He's been such a bother lately, especially with how he treats my grandmother. Oh, by the way, I told my nephew to come see you about a commission. Apparently he wanted something for that event my mom was planning."

    And now you're stuck trying to figure out who is who, because none of the people mentioned are in any form of records, and last week you spoke to someone else, who had a similarly diffuse family without records, and names have somehow gotten confused. Who is it I'm meeting for a commission? Am I rude for not remembering for the umpteenth time the name of said poorly treated grandmother?

    That reminds me of when I first started playing Aetolia, and I still have really old pages of paper somewhere with tons of incomprehensible notes about family trees and guild requirements.

    WTELLS # doesn't work.

    CTELLS # works...

    SHOWTELL # works..

    GTELLS # works

    CLANTELLS # works.

    this frustrates me incessantly, especially since WTELLS doesn't go through death, so I miss out on someone talking to me when I'm dead, and can't go back and see what they said, so I miss half the conversation.

    WTELLS/CTELLS/TELLS/GTELLS/CLANTELLS FULL typically works pretty well in that regard.

    WTELLS doesn't help when the tell is long enough that it ends in ellipsis (...)

    which is the thing I've got a problem with.

    Goldtouch refund. I use my goldbars exclusively for crafting. Especially since it's a forced comm in a bunch of stuff that doesn't actually bloody use gold. :( Can't we just have the gold acquired in goldtouch not be able to be put to use in cures somehow? >.>

    Plus, wtf am I supposed to do with 150 bound ironcoins. If I wanted any of the other ironcoin artifacts, I'd have bought them already, I only bound those specifically for this one thing. :/

    ETA: I get the why behind this, it's just frustrating, especially following the change to force ridiculous base-comms that don't make sense.
