The Walkabout (Chauntea, All)

Come seek the wild path from Shadowdale to wherever the spirit leads! Set out on the walkabout to find ones self within nature, and seek fresh nutmeg. Of all her splendors nutmeg may be one of the finest things Our Mother has given us! Tenderfeet, be wary of the thorned path; there is always danger...

Come to the eaves of Ardeep and join in the dance for the trees; bring with you a good nature, strong drink, and manure for the fertilizing. There we shall bles...

The Trueseed Oengus bids any who bear respect for the Mother of All to seek the Shrine of Nature and join in giving homage ...

Re: The High Harvesttide

This event will run from the 23rd to the 29th, and I propose we gather at the Goldenfields Abbey around 3PM PST on the 29th (as not to interfere with other events) where there will indeed be a gathering! Chaunteans from all necks of the woods are especially encouraged to attend. If Adventurers wish ...

The High Harvesttide

O adventurer, the High Druid of Chauntea calls upon thee! There has been such an abundance of corn and wheat that the farms and fields must be harvested in doubletime, lest the sweet Bounty of the Earth be lost to the first snap of cold in coming days. Oengus bids thee, take up thy sacks, packs, buc...

Re: How would you role play spar damage?

A great question. I've always believed (like the Society for Creative Anachronism) that mauls and other brutish blunt weapons are off limits for demonstrations and spars. Why? There's no way to hold back with them, you're going to really badly injure someone if you hit them with a warhammer. For tha...

Speaking for the Trees

Whispers spread throughout the temples of Chauntea and soon echo from the chatter of hearty farmwives. The Talking Tree of Chauntea has called together those faithful disciples of the Earth Mother. It seems he wishes to discuss the turning of seasons, the turning of soil, and the magic of planting t...

Re: Crafting Anew

Enchantment would be balanced if it required a base item with the enchantment to transfer to a new item. For instance if I wished to enchant a pair of +2 strength gauntlets, I would require a +2 strength item to use as a basis for the enchantment, the masterwork item to be enchanted, and the differe...

Re: Can we really have hot chocolate?

If I recall correctly, a check with said USE progs to see if the item is in the inventory or being used will help expand on the messages. It has been awhile but I seem to recall the USE progs working on GET/TAKE and EQUIPping. So checking if the item is held prior to the action, and using different ...

Re: lower rescue for fighters

The only downside is that the flee skill is elusive to train, which would probably be more useful to Fighters at lower levels thrusting themselves in harms way.

Re: Poison!

With just a SMAUG spell it's possible to create effects that last the duration of a poison spell, but specific types beyond that will require a lot of work (i.e. a table for poisons/medicines.) This can be done by factoring the negative amounts into the positive, and making the wear-off for the nega...

Re: Poison!

SMAUG has always had ItemVariable 3 for food and drink, which checks for poison. It might not be a stretch to have a 'lace' command that would poison the food or drink, consuming the poison powder from inventory, though these poisons really are quite weak. It would be interesting to see new poisons ...

Re: Mithril Armor

I agree that crafted armors should be canonical, after all this is potentially -hundreds- of hours of work to accomplish masterwork ingots and armors.

I agree with Alitar, it's not as if Nixa is standing there with a pose that she has hiked her gown up. I would think you could find a 'gusset' or similar things to wear as well.
