Talk:Orange glowstick

This is just a hypothesis, but, I think these are going to be the new traffic cones. I don't know why it'd be so important for the glowstick's color to be mentioned in its name otherwise. It probably provides slight spooky resistance or something but we won't know for sure until next rollover and/or when it gets a proper description. --Genbu Cosplayer 02:56, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

Description

Description available -

This is a stick made of some enchanted material that glows a bright orange when in the presence of repetitive, electronic music. Which is, I guess, somewhat less useful than glowing blue in the presence of orcs. I mean, at least you'll know that you're near a rave when it starts glowing, and then you can take steps to either avoid or thoroughly enjoy it.

References

Tolkien didn't make up the sword that glows blue in the presence of enemies, i.e. orcs. It's a common effect in plenty of books in the genre, many published well before tolkien's original publishing of the LOTR series. --Kiltan 19:48, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

  • The idea of a reference is, however, to pop culture as are many other references in this game. Tolkien may not have been first to think up of that idea, but his writing is most notable in people's minds. Think about it like Calculus. Although it was simultaneously discovered by both Newton and Leibniz, many people think of Newton and his apple when you mention Calculus. It just sticks in our minds easier.
    • On a separate note, if you think of ideas in that fashion, then nobody in the modern world can be credited as coming up with an idea because a similar idea would have certainly been in literature somewhere in the past. And indeed, the patents office does recognize modifications to existing patented things such as electronics as a different patent credited to a different creater. Thus, Tolkien "invented and is credited with" the glowing blue sword when near his orcs, even though other authors before him may have wrote of similar things. --Risrepkel 20:46, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

use?

has anyone tried to use this near a raver giant? or the jukebox? are there any special effects discovered?

Mechanic

  • it seemed at first that it went like this:
  • adventure in SSPDS until find button
  • equip button
  • adventure until exchange button for glowstick
  • rinse, repeat
however, once i'd got a glowstick i would randomly get buttons and glowsticks without equipping or losing the buttons. it seemed to go that having a glowstick equipped caused this, but that may have been coincidence.
i realise confirmation is a little difficult right now, but anybody agree with my analysis? --Evilkolbot 14:20, 27 October 2006 (CDT)
  • This was talked about on the flashing button talk. It's known that's how the day started, but at some point during SSPD, this mechanic seems to have changed so you had to exchange on a one-for-one basis.--Galapagos James 14:42, 27 October 2006 (CDT)
    • i was adventuring UK lunchtime: that's 12pm GMT. must have been later than that. --Evilkolbot 01:53, 28 October 2006 (CDT)
