Subj: March Promotion - Beans!

For the remaining days of March, I'm very pleased to announce Imperian's brand new promotion: mystical green beans!

For every 25 credits you purchase for the rest of this month, you will receive 1 mystical bean. If your purchase is for less than 25 credits, you will still receive 1 bean. If you purchase 2000 credits, you will be given 80 beans! The amount of beans you receive is dependent only on the amount of your unmodified purchase, so you will not get beans for extra credits given by the Iron Elite membership.

What do these beans do, you ask? They do many mystical and powerful things.

Each bean, when created, is assigned a random buff and a random debuff. When you eat the bean, you will be given both the buff and the debuff. The effects of them will last for one hour. The list of possible buffs and debuffs will be listed at the bottom of this post. Some of these buffs will be very powerful, while some of the debuffs will be very debilitating. You can view the list of beans you have with BEAN LIST, and you can eat a bean with BEAN EAT <bean #>.

Since the beans are randomly created, some beans will be far more useful than others. If you have three beans that are just absolutely terrible, you can combine them into a new, random bean with BEAN SHAKE <bean 1> <bean 2> <bean 3>.

Alternatively, if you have a decent bean that's just not useful for you personally, you can trade it to another player with BEAN TRADE <bean #> TO <person>. The other person does not have to be online. As always, scamming people out of their mystical beans will not be tolerated.

HELP BEANS contains the information about mystical beans.

If you have any questions or encounter any problems with these new beans, please let me know.

Bean Buffs and Debuffs:

- Increased/decreased damage to mobs
- Increased/decreased experience gain
- Increased/decreased gold drops
- Increased/decreased balance times
- Increased/decreased equilibrium times
- Increased/decreased elixir and herb balance times
- Increased/decreased strength/dexterity/intelligence/constitution
- Increased/decreased resistance to physical damage
- Increased/decreased resistance to non-physical damage (except unblockable)
- Chance to harvest double/half herbs
- Chance to deliver double/half caravan materials
- Increased/decreased chance for critical hits
- Increased/decreased movements per second
- Increased/decreased belief gain when sacrificing
- Increased/decreased health/mana regen
- Increased/decreased maximum health/mana
- Increased/decreased fish weight
- Veil of Obtenebrate effect (buff only).

Multiple buffs of the same type do not stack. If you have a bean that offers +2 strength and another bean that offers +1 strength, you will only end up with +2 strength.

However, buffs and debuffs do stack, so if you have one bean that offers +3 strength, and another bean that punishes you with -1 strength, the end effect is that you will have +2 strength.
