The Aaron, Arcane Scriptomancer

"While wizards may learn to bend magic to their will, the Scriptomancer alone understands the language of the gods, in which the very building blocks of the world are written. Wielding both his esoteric knowledge and the hammer of the Ay'p Eye, The Aaron reshapes the world at its most fundamental level, producing results that benefit the common man; though their workings may be beyond mortal comprehension." - Quote from PaulOoshun(Forum)

Misc API threads

  • Calendar (Mystara) -- Currently just supports the Mystara Calendar (12 months, 12 days, etc), but I play to expand it to be a more universal campaign calendar, including annotation of dates, personal notes, tracking the passage of time, etc.
  • isGM -- Provides a function isGM() for determining if a player id refers to a gm. Unlike other solutions, this one builds it GM list automatically by detection via chat messages. The first time a player speaks as themselves, they are detected as being either a GM or a Player, and that determination is stored in the state object. This is native functionality with the playerIsGM() function now.
