Minions of Mirth

I have little experience with online games, but I do enjoy Prairie Games Minions of Mirth, the one time fee of $29.95 for Premium was well worth it. I purchased premium in August 2009. The game is enjoyable but the forums were outdated with many bad links and now appear to be inaccessable.

I had found Cronus’ web site at Minion-Tools to be invaluble in equiping my characters. However, it appears the is offline now.

Minions of Mirth was an MMORPG designed by Lara Engebretson and Josh Ritter. It used the Torque Game Engine and was released by Garage Games for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh Operating Systems.

The game was a lot of fun and my first exposure to an MMORPG. It had a decent following and many of the players were active for years. A number had multiple accounts. Nearly everyone was happy to help someone new.

Sadly,the twitter and facebook feeds currently indicate the game is offline indefinately as of September 22, 2017. I understand a hard disk died. I guess keeping it running had gotten too expensive.

I recently stumbled on a group talking of a private server for MoM Reborn. Please see the following link for more information:

MoM Reborn

Minions of Mirth Handbook

I'm a little fuzzy on the details since I don't hang out on reddit or Discord. But the client works. It took a minute for my machine to run the installer. If I hadn't already crafted a script to check my criticals, I might try relocating it.

While you can always play Single Player, playing with a group is definately more fun. It is definately worth checking out.

Critical and Grievous Wound

I wrote a couple of short programs to track my best critical and grievous wounds. If you are interested, please see:

The results:

The programs were written for OS X. However they are easily adaptable to MS Windows if perl is installed. You will probably need to change the location of the data file. Just list characters one per line in the data file to initialize it. The programs only looks at the current log, but store the high values to be compared to future logs.

I currently use them under MinGW.
