Here should go all the projects people have or may have (or may have the intention of doing some time) along with all the people who are doing something about it (fortunately, Lojbab doesn't come here too often, so he won't have his name down for all of them zo'o).

==  What you can do in here ==
 
 
 
You can fight!
 
 
 
You might have noticed, that there are two evil persons in the room you're in: the palci spero (''evil esperantist'') and the palci gerku (''evil dog'')
 
 
 
As they are both evil they both deserve to get a little spanking, don't you think? ;)
 
 
 
===  The combat System ===
 
 
 
Combat in LQ world is based completely around Lojban. You attack other people and enemies using Lojban sentences. You form those with words out of your wordbags.
 
 
 
===  Wordbags ===
 
 
 
Wordbags contain the words you can shoot at your enemies - so called Wordshots.
 
 
 
See what you've got! ''words''
 
 
 
~pp~You have the following cmavo:
 
 
 
Cu #5  1    do #5  1    le #10 1    mi #5  1    nu #5  1 
 
 
 
se #5  1 
 
 
 
You are carrying 35 cmavo of a possible maximum of 100.
 
 
 
You have the following gismu:
 
 
 
Cmalu #2 4    cusku #3 1    klama #3 4    mutce #3 3    tavla #2 5 
 
 
 
zvati #2 4 
 
 
 
You are carrying 15 gismu of a possible maximum of 50.~/pp~
 
 
 
that's not terribly much, is it? oh well!
 
 
 
The numbers behind the # show how many wordshots you got of a word and the number next to that is the amount of damage a word will cause under normal circumstances.
 
 
 
You have means of getting more of those Wordshots, but we'll talk about that later on.
 
 
 
===  actually attacking ===
 
 
 
The command for attacking is ''cast [[jbocre: spell|spell]] at [[jbocre: enemy|enemy]]''
 
 
 
let's go ahead and give the snobbish esperantist a little punch, shall we?
 
 
 
''cast "do mutce tavla mi" at the palci spero''
 
 
 
~pp~You cast the attack spell "do mutce tavla mi" at the palci spero for 10 damage!
 
 
 
The palci spero casts the attack spell "poi ba barda nelci" at you for 17 damage!  Ouch!~/pp~
 
 
 
woops, that wasn't so good! let's have a look at how much beating we can still take!
 
 
 
===  looking at the stats ===
 
 
 
using the command ''status'' reveals our stats:
 
 
 
~pp~Your dexterity is 1.  Your current health is 183.  Your maximum health is 200.  You have 0 gold pieces.~/pp~
 
 
 
===  Healing ===
 
 
 
before we jump back into combat we should try to get healthy again. Fortunately wordshots are not only good for hurting, but also for healing:
 
 
 
Another look into our wordbag and we come up with a sentence to heal ourselves:
 
 
 
''heal "le klama cu mutce cmalu" at me''
 
 
 
~pp~You cast the healing spell "le klama cu mutce cmalu" at you for 13 points of healing.
 
 
 
The palci spero casts the attack spell "djica" at you for 6 damage!  Ouch!
 
 
 
It's your turn to cast a spell in your fight against the palci spero.~/pp~
 
 
 
woops, ouch! looks like the evil esperantist didn't like our attempt at becoming all healthy again! That's because we're still fighting the evil esperantist and healing used up one of our turns :(
 
 
 
===  Getting new words - The Chest Game ===
 
 
 
After a few turns of fighting and healing our wordbag went pretty dry, didn't it?
 
 
 
Let's get a few more. You might have noticed that there is also a chest lying around: ''the Test Chest''
 
 
 
it contains all the words we'd ever want!
 
 
 
''use the Test Chest''
 
 
 
~pp~Using "choose N" or "pick N", where N is a sentence number, please select from the following sentences the one you believe was written by a human.
 
 
 
1: le klama cu zvati le mutce tavla
 
 
 
2: zo nu cusku ta lei nu ciska
 
 
 
3: ku'i do cusku ci stedu je cusku
 
 
 
4: le gunka cu ca ka'e zvati sutra
 
 
 
5: lei mi troci cu se djica ri~/pp~
 
 
 
number 4 seems quite human-ish!
 
 
 
''pick 4''
 
 
 
~pp~Sorry, that's not a human sentence.~/pp~
 
 
 
oops :( let's try that again: ''pick 1''
 
 
 
~pp~Congratulations!  You are correct.~/pp~
 
 
 
cool!
 
 
 
''words''
 
 
 
~pp~You have the following cmavo:
 
 
 
Ci #1  10      cu #6  1      do #5  1      je #1  2    ku'i #1  2
 
 
 
le #11 1      lei #2  2      mi #5  1      nu #7  1      ri #1  5
 
 
 
se #6  1      ta #1  7      zo #1  3
 
 
 
You are carrying 48 cmavo of a possible maximum of 100.
 
 
 
You have the following gismu:
 
 
 
Ciska #1 9    cmalu #1 4    cusku #6 1    djica #1 6    klama #3 4
 
 
 
mutce #2 3    stedu #1 9    tavla #2 5    troci #1 8    zvati #3 4
 
 
 
You are carrying 21 gismu of a possible maximum of 50.~/pp~
 
 
 
Not bad, we certainly got stronger now that we've got a 10 damage word :)
 
 
 
=== Dropping Useless Words ===
 
 
 
Try: drop "cu" (or whatever) to get rid of words you don't want.
