I have this feeling that, at rent/login base, there is a random spell variable that is set.
On combo charmers, it is very perceptible...
Is it a myth? Or new feature?

To be honest, I think it's kinda true with thieves, too. Sometimes I fail every single stab on silly mobs, rent, relog, and don't fail anymore. Might just be in my head, but it's nice to see someone else thinking the same.
I do it often on Sudo. The wierd thing is that when Im able to easily charm 2 meagles after failing alot and rent/log, my buffing is not that good... Maybe its psycological...

One of MUME's best kept secrets have been revealed. It was meant to be a secret advantage for V+ who play mortals, but I might as well tell you; the way to guarantee a good random seed is to typo your password twice before logging on.

I doubt it has anything to do with random seed, because MUME probably shares one random number generator for everyone (as well as for NPCs, etc.) - there is just no good reason to use more than one.
But possible explanation is that there is a glitch in backstab-sense code and renting/relogin performs some sort of reset that fixes it. As for spells, I don't know what it could be. What Rato says could be explained if MUME assigned warrior/mage level semi-randomly at login time, but I doubt that is the case (there is no reason for randomness).
client echoes me % of successfully stored quakes. Usually around average value all the time.

Rogon lets talk later privately about that fullset for good seed thing ok?

Last one on 'who' list gains extra % of exp, remember?

And Rogon forgot to mention that we are wasting our V+ time playing level 100 hobbits with all stats at 25, in full shining on test mud and with all these bonuses and V+ random seed it is a bit boring :-)

I think next 6 months people can play without the weird randomness because Rogon notices that Teoli will be gathering statistics and turned 'Random login spell' off.
Hell yeah, I can tell you that random login behaviour is true! Why? Beacause it works irl too. When I woke up and fucked up a project at work, I did a powernap later that day and everything turned out smooth. So yes, when first login feels like a fail, it's good to restart. Mind-boggling, I know!
Edit: I think it's the lizard people of Bildenberg group controlling magnetic waves with HAARP on flat Earth thus probably affecting Mume logon too.
