The parrot isn't a supported wearable VFX for that reason (and others).

Bug Reports / Emote Interactivity Causing VFX Breaks
« Last post by Grendel on January 27, 2023, 03:25:30 PM »
I have limited access to verify which attachable VFXs suffer from this problem, but at minimum the shoulder mounted parrot does. Using any of the listed emotes below will cause the placement of the VFX to break, relocating from the shoulder to hovering in front of the shoulder as per the attached screenshot.



The emotes that cause this are;

@emote 10 (taunt animation)
@emote 17 (knockdown backwards)
@emote 25 (pushups)
@emote 26 (dancing)
@emote 27 (holding hands behind back)
@emote 28 (sitting - legs drawn up)
@emote 29 (pushing)
@emote 30 (grapple)
@emote 31 (point)
@emote 32 (holding chin, hand on hip)
@emote 33 (cower)
@emote 34 (crossing arms)
@emote 35 (sleep in bed, left-aligned)
@emote 36 (sleep in bed, right-aligned)
@emote 37 (crouch)
@emote 38 (hanging from ceiling)
@emote 39 (attacking/splitting wood)
@emote 40 (sleep on floor)

By comparison, other wearable VFX such as the masks (included in above screenshot), are not impacted by this. Something about performing these emotes, most of which are the newer ones implemented relatively recently, changes the location of the parrot anchor point until the user relogs.

Updated the harassment, verbal abuse entry in Consistent Rulings and Punishments as follows:

Quote
Rule Broken: Harassment, threats, verbal abuse, willfully trying to get members of staff or CC to share confidential information
Punishment: Verbal warning (First offense)
                   1 Week Ban (Second offense)
                   1 Month Ban (Third offense)
                   Indefinite Ban (Final offense)

*Egregious cases may warrant accelerated progression on this disciplinary track. Trying to coax confidential information from CC/DMs/Developers will also disqualify the person from serving in the future as part of the Community Council, DM and Development teams.

As indicated, we reserve the right to skip steps in this track for egregious cases. Also, and this is not new, but we reserve the right to bar someone from joining one of the staff teams or the Community Council to community members who have tried to coax information out of staff teams, as it is seen as a serious breach of trust.

I learned early what this land had to teach me. It wasn't quite so unlike the more hostile islands of the Moonshae. Thankfully, there are less bugs, though that is not counting the rather large beetles in a hole close to Vallaki. Or the giant ants I fought with a, well, maybe there are as many bugs. The point is, I learned that we needed to be ready to fight and to flee. Just like the raids.

However, I also learned that there was time for music now. And a need for it. What with how dour things can be here a song is just what some people need. When I play in the Lady's Rest, I can transport people away from their thoughts of the day, help them relax. The music may not always land exactly with people but that is fine. Even the locals who have a distinctly different taste in song are at least outwardly polite and applaud. Performing is how I have met many of those I would call friend now.

Ser Anders was the first, a Knight with a Lion's Jaw on his head. He looked as if he was some ancient king of my people. Or Alice, a mysterious woman who is so cheery I am immediately put in a good mood. I can't forget Nebet Neferet as well, the Akiri woman who has given me the opportunity to perform and pushed me to be better than I imagined. She is also quite the seamstress. There is also Aeric, a stoic man who says they were a member of "The Kinship", who is willing to listen to this Skald sing and help others in need. There is Mortimer the researcher, and quite clever as well. And Carlyah, a well meaning woman who can, Tempus bless her, hardly handle her liquor.

Many more are bouncing around this head of mine, but to write them all would take more hours than this night includes. For now, I will leave off, secure knowing that even though I am without my Clan, I am not without allies. And dare I say it... Friends.

The beginning then. We had just pushed off after a successful raid against the Ffolk, our southern neighbors. As Northlanders it was almost tradition to raid them, to keep our skills sharp and to blood new warriors. And, I admit with some reluctance, it was fun. To see great men and women you have known since birth take up arms and achieve great acts of skill and bravery... it is magnificent.

Still I shouldn't let my thoughts wander. Ships full of the wailing prisoners and the spoils taken, we pushed off. As was customary to one of my craft, I stayed up late into the night. I stared out into that inky darkness and noticed a fog coming towards us. It was then that those crafty Merfolk has assaulted us from below! Horns blew, people cursed, and battle was joined. I sang out, emboldening our people as I dispatched a Merman, a grin has he spilled his insides. The fog kept coming, enveloping everyone and everything as it all grew quiet. My eyes had grown heavy and against my own will, I had fallen to slumber.
