They only echo that when the area maker makes that kind of an echo.
I personally found it amusing when I ran into that mob in the same situation.

Just change rooms you're trying to mem/pray in.

why not just remove the echo? it doesnt fit in any way whatsoever. The only reason its there is to abuse triggers :shrug:

More like an imagination. I agree with Gura. Using exact wording is just to set off peoples triggers. Boo. Hiss. Why not word the text and color it so at a glance it appears like it, but isn't, just to mess with you.

Ex:

A singing sailor sends your drink sprawling with a powerful bash!

A singing sailor switches songs!

A singing sailor half kills you with his mighty drunken remake of an old sailor song!

A singing sailor knocks your backwards several feet with a piercing high note! Ouch!

You shudder in agony as a singing sailor's breath of pure alcohol blasts into you!

A singing sailor pounds you with a mighty shoulder clasp!

A singing sailor staggers from your fearsome criticism!

I stand by my statement, lol. It DOES take imagination to put that emote into a zone. As far as I know, it's unique, and I think Savras has got an extremely creative mind all around.

I'd have to log in to the mud to check my trigger and the actual thing he emotes, but I don't think it even causes my trigger to fire? I thought it was altered slightly simply *because* it used to abuse triggers and now it doesn't.. I think the actual bash message is shorter, like.. "sends you sprawling."

Savras is a total bastage. TB taught me to turn off all those response triggers. Heck, after exploring Trollbark for a while, the only response trigger I had left was "hide."

------

Basically, just end your trigger with a period after sprawling, and it won't even do anything. Of course, Ashiwi just pointed out something obvious which I never really connected... The fact that Trollbark has all those weird emotes. Of course, I never had triggers for any of them, so I always just thought they were for "atmosphere" more than anything else.

This isnt as evil as one of zones which has bash messege echoed that is colored black. A zone that takes a bit of sneak/hiding too...
