Re: How to be evil?

I've never been a fan of the evil / good axis of the alignment system. Truthfully I could have and do get along quite well with the original Lawful - chaotic axis though. An interesting tidbit I've picked up over the years is that the original DND lawful and chaotic alignments weren't actually meant...

Re: Paladin/Squire board

In addition to what Katheryn has said... it might be cool to see the Code of Honor(s) for the various faiths as they will be different from faith to faith. Though, I don't know if the Code of Honor is different from person to person? I would think there would be something 'solid' for each faith, wh...

Disfigurements from birth can't be fixed by healing magic in some Fr novels / sources Abject poverty such as monks who forswear possessions. Monk in the theological sense, not martial sense as martial monks will probably go out of their way to get anything that makes htem stronger. Being cursed by e...

Re: How would you role play spar damage?

I tend to try and rp injuries on the rare occasion I spar. I don't have a sparring character anymore. or at least, not one that will do it often. But I remember on Xand I used to try and at least give a smote at the end to the effect of dizzy from bloodloss. I view the FK IC sparring attitude to be ...

Re: new command: Skillcheck <skill>

I'm curious why you present power emoting with this idea as a negative thing. On a MUD I played perhaps some 6 years ago which has arguably the most involved roleplay mechanics I've ever experienced this exact thing was used to determine whether you could say, tackle someone to the ground or poke th...

Re: More In Character

I find the less church orientated your roleplay is, the easier it is to mix crowds. Also, having played here for 3 ish or more years, I feel not getting too involved in the player's rl lives helps me rp with any char that crosses my path really. Its a completely human thing to want to stick in a spe...

My reaction to OOC chatter is usually to suggest we go back to IC after 4 or so lines of this. My reaction to OOC chatter that is generally unpleasant like an argument brewing is just to walk away. Being the ardent argument lover that I am. I know the only way to kill this particular fire is to star...

Far as I knew, the SOW was going to get some form of adjustment / makeover.

Yeah, if you search criplling strike, there is an entire back and forth forum topic about backstab and its duration.

Waterdeep soldier guides

Seems like the Waterdhavian code that governs where the soldiers take you pon being paid is broken. The new areas added to the city now have them take you to the grand mezzanine since that seems to have closed but visible exits to the gates. Its a shame to lose the functionality of this piece of cod...

Casting whilst sitting

Nothing elaborate, just wondering if there was any chance of changing stuff so casters can also cast whilst sitting. To my knowledge, all somatic components can be satisfied with just the hands.

Re: Random Level Advancement?

Even if you don't gain xp after being drained. As long as the amount of xp you originally lost through drain is enough to level and you are restored. The game will auto level you.

Re: Magical Gear Wipe (shops only)

Were this a suggestion, I'd give it some serious thought. Likely finding it a favourable outcome. Perhaps its simply my contrary nature, but *shops* in a game based on DND was not really meant to be stocked in a normal / natural way. By this I mean, the shops in a DND game are by no means stocked by...

Re: First Edition had titles to indicate level ranks

Still, this topic sparks a thought I've had on and off. is there a better use for the title system in game than the random malange of semi relivant words occasionally present after people's names? Even if it isn't used to denote your relative strength, what might we use titles for. And overall how u...
