10.4.8 THE MINISTRY OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS
The Ministry of Cultural Affairs is responsible for holding events within the city, and generally keeping the morale of the citizens high. Those holding this office are encouraged to come up with innovative, fun events for citizens. If they are successful, we may support them with custom code. Aside from unsupported events, this Ministry is responsible for any Arenas that the city owns. The commands associated with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs are as follows. Note that these commands will only work on an Arena owned by your city. ARENA SHOW <arena> - Let's you see information about an Arena. For instance: ARENA SHOW HASHAN would show Hashan's Arena, assuming it had one. - See the end of this help file for an example SHOW. ARENA SET <arena> FULLNAME <name of Arena> - This lets you rename your Arena's full name. This does not affect the name that is used for these commands, but the long name, e.g. The Matsuhama Arena. ARENA SET <arena> FEE <fee> [optional: PER LEVEL] - With this, you set the fee that your Arena will charge people. If you do not include the words 'per level' at the end, the fee you set will be a flat fee that will apply equally to everybody. If you include 'per level' then the fee you have will be multiplied by the player's level. You will end up netting 1/3 of the total fees the players pay, as the winner gets 2/3 of the fees paid, at least in the case of Duels. ARENA SETUP <arena> ALLOW <organization / player> - By default, your Arena will be able to be used by anyone in the case of the various events. Doing this will limit the next event to whichever organizations (cities, orders, clans, guilds) you specify. You may also specify individuals. You can allow as many organizations and individuals as you like. - In order to select an Order, use the name of the God. ARENA SETUP <arena> DISALLOW <organization / player> - If you've already set someone or some organization as allowed, this will reverse it. ARENA SETUP <arena> MAXLEVEL <maximum level> - Only those whose level is equal to or under the maximum level will be able to participate in the next event. ARENA SETUP <arena> MINLEVEL <minimum level> - Only those whose level is equal to or greather than the minimum level will be able to participate in the next event. ARENA RESET <arena> - Resets an arena. Kicks everybody in it out and clears off any event. ARENA WITHDRAW <arena> <amount> - Withdraw gold from an Arena. ARENA DEPOSIT <arena> <amount> - Deposit gold in the operating account of an Arena. CHANGETEAM <arena> <player> <team> - Changes the team a player is on in a team free-for-all. INIT <event> <arena> - Initializes an event in an Arena. You will want to do any SETUP commands on the Arena first. Example: INIT FREEFORALL DELOS. All players who can participate in the event will see a message offering them the chance to join. - Possible events are, providing your Arena is equipped with them: freeforall, baitgame, freezetag, bloodbath, teamfreeforall START <event> <arena> - Begins an event. Example START BAITGAME DELOS. END <event> <arena> - Prematurely end an event. ARENA RESET also works for this purpose. Below is an example of what ARENA SHOW displays, and what each field in it indicates. --[Arena #1]------------------------------------------------------------------ Name: delos Basename: arena Fullname: The Fields of Valor Staging: ARENA_STAGE Spectator: SPECTATOR Gold: 113733 Owner: none Lifetime: 32458 Fee: 5 (per level) Total Events Held: Duels: 16 FFAs: 0 Freezes: 0 Baits: 0 Events and Mods: Duel FFA Freezetag Baitgame Game: Free-for-all Properties: Max level: 85 Min level: 40 Players: Hansel Gretel ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Name - Indicates what name you have to refer to the Arena by.

Battlegrounds ------------- For those who have invested within the Commerce research tree: you are now able to purchase modifications that can be applied to your arena events, increasing the value of your arena. Once purchased, they can be applied with the following syntax: INIT <event> <arena> MODS <mods>, or CHALLENGE <target> MODS <mods>. Note that adding modifications to your arena match increases its usage cost.
