...Could one of you clarify? I would assume it would be the former, but...
In almost every MMO ive played, its been the latter. This is usually because flat XP bonuses are
A. Skill-less (The player does not work too hard for it, and is generally unfun)
B. Useless (Flat XP would be pretty annoying to code for each level, instead of giving a 25% bonus to every monster kill)
C. Lame (What is the point of killing monsters if people can just get one of those nifty useless potions)

Not sure how it works here

Well in terms of MMOs and RPGs in general, XP potions that give XP upon being drunk do exist. Generally the timed boosts are in the case of the former and usually aren't drops, but when they are they're rare and are also often found in Free-to-Play stores (as well as in non-Online RPGs, often times in the case of Action RPGs but found in pretty much any sub-genre). The ones that give (E)XP are generally found in Single Player RPGs and MMOs, though aren't really common in general and are pretty much always rare drops.

Though the reason I asked in this case was solely because Shiren actually said that it gave XP while Robin seemed to think it would temporarily give him increased XP for a set amount of time. I wouldn't be surprised if both types existed, though.

So...which is it? EXP Potion gives some EXP or boosts rate of EXP? I like simple answers, simple & clean only.

    Clever Kingdom Hearts reference, or maybe it was unintended.

      It's the former. In Wolf's words:

          Ok, thanks. And I can't believe I made that typo, as I used to play the violin. *Facepalms* Oh well. Regardless, where should I jump in?

                      Aha, I was wondering when the day/night cycle would come into effect. I've got an idea up my sleeve that makes Turnip particularly good company at night - especially if anyone's camping out in the dungeons instead of going back into a town.

                        I apologize, but my posting for July will be inconsistent at best. I am currently in the phase of college prep and I am also going on a few trips. I will post when I can, but nothing is guaranteed.

                              Bulletin board's looking good. Would that be posted in the IC or OOC thread? Not sure how we'd initiate the quests, I assume there'd be material boards in towns or something. Or maybe something on the UI.

                                For the sake of humor and half-relevancy, here is something I found very amusing. Firstly, this Flash game:

                                http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/495903




                                Second, this video, which makes a mockery of someone's review of the flash game, since the poster didn't seem to get the joke.

                                  Hey guys, I thought I'd let you know that I'll be going abroad on holiday on the 8th of this month (July). I don't know if I might be able to get wifi there, so I might potentially be able to post. Don't count on it though.

                                  At any rate, I'll be gone for two weeks. Just hope that's alright, and not too much of a pain.
