Re: Talos Says New Thread Discussion

My point Sim, in short was that you can't really say that the health increase here disadvantages both melee and spell damage equally. The resources both are based on are not comparable in scope. What I need to impart foremost is that melee/ranged attacks target AC and that spells target saving thro...

Re: Disintegrate vs Fort immune NPCs

Perhaps I worded that poorly: Constructs encompass the realm of golems, animated objects and constructed creatures. A golem's spell immunity applies only to spells that check for SR (spell resistance) - Conjuration spells are dope for that reason. The two highest CR golems have outright immunity to ...

Re: Disintegrate vs Fort immune NPCs

Immunity to any effect that requires a Fortitude save (unless the effect also works on objects or is harmless). Just because they have no CON ability mod doesn't mean they are immune to all types of damage - that's why they have a fortitude saving throw included. Templates should allow for acid typ...

Re: Two weapon fighting and the bard class

Open up the classes to the dual wielding skill. Lower the required PC level in which to train it to 10. Dual wielding/two-weapon fighting PCs are already in the deficit to the other styles when you consider the overhead investment in feats, large penalty and skill level requirement in order to advan...

Re: Kismet system, newbies and more

What are the factors that makes thieves difficult as a first class? Thought they implemented the kismet requirement for thieves as a result of multiple griefing attempts or just overall sub-par roleplaying from thieving PCs around a decade or so ago. There most likely is an understandable reason fo...

Re: Elminster Open Discussion

Disintegrate is supposed to turn the foe into dust if they fail their save. The fact that it just does damage on stun mode is the code blocking the effect. There is no way to "control" the effect of turning someone to dust and just stun them, which is why that spell has always been considered "chee...

Re: Illusionary Pit vs Mass Hold Person

I'm not entirely sure that its really that difficult. to fix. As far as I've read, been told and observed, there are tools to apply custom effects to PCs, but there is no stock prone condition though so stunned was used in place for things like the pit and earth reaver. What earth reaver really sho...

Ah, my apologies. I didn't see that part. The timing of it coincided with the recent event in the tournament.

Re: Illusionary Pit vs Mass Hold Person

What I witnessed was the MUD policing itself in the latest USE of the spell 'Illusory Pit' in a tournament setting. The initial application of it was perfectly sound in my book; as the spell came later into the relative progression of the fight and was not the 'go-to' first response. The repeated ap...

Bug Reporting threads have long been issued on 'Orb of element' but never seem to see the light of day.

Re: Illusionary Pit vs Mass Hold Person

Damage should bring a targeted individual out of the effects of an illusiory pit. Illusiory pit should, at the very least, regardless of successful save or fail, stun a target via vertigo. That does not mean the target is prone or incompacitated. The prone condition here on FK is wildly split from S...

Re: Raising the cost of components for creating undead

The illithids seem like potential abuse, what other races are potentially abused? Raising the levels of these mobiles (making them too powerful to raise) to better match the threat posed by such races seems the easiest solution. Multiple mobs were tweaked as a result of determining the mob's specia...

Re: Game Status?

Honestly these frequent resets are making the game very difficult to play. I've already lost dozens of platinum due to rooms getting emptied or getting rolled back. I know this stuff is necessary but I wish it could just be done on a schedule or something instead of at random times. That sucks. FK'...
