Re: Tanking and AC

Are you accounting for different races and supplicated armour?

Re: General Questions

Anything you send through the mail ends up in a storage room for posts, and can be acquired by admins or imms. I know that boxes are flagged with who sent them through invisible code and I assume the same for letters, though it might still be a good idea to sign them ic.

Re: We Appreciate Mele

Mele has been a fixture in the game for over a decade and has worked very hard to manage the playerbase and various other systems. She's provided dynamic roleplay and supported and expanded services that could not otherwise exist without proper stewardship. I wish her all the best and hope to see he...

Re: Tethyr - Types of Service

I've never noticed anything in the area that would denote that the mobiles depicted were not paid wages for working there. We could post a sign that the bath house does not employ slaves though.

Re: Brew!

What people are not taking into account is that up until late 2004 you could brew any spell into a potion as was possible in version 2.5 of d&d. The change to 3.0 and 3.5 resulted in the curbing of this to below lv 4. The potions that you see with higher level spells are remnants of the older code l...

Hrm, took the quiz again and got this:

Congratulations! You are a Hamurai, a samurai who wears a suit of armour made out of meat. Mostly ham, but also steaks, sausages, and bacon strips.

Re: Max level for ECL races

Personally, I think that after reading this, we could simply expand the ECL to all races or classes to level the playing field for future characters and races. It may be easier than removing the current ecl or tweaking it.

Re: Arrow retrieval

In some games like Skyrim, you have a small percentage of a chance of recovering your arrows from corpses when they are used. In a tabletop d&d game you may start out with a certain amount of arrows in your inventory that you use up as you do combat. You don't get those back unless you make an attem...

Re: Purpose of food clock?

I'm out. It's bad enough that I have to spend half of my time thinking about how to navigate the twisted maze that is Text-Only Waterdeep. When the other half is spent thinking about the food clock and coin remaining to buy said food then the game is no longer about roleplay and adventuring. I didn...

Re: Coded vs. For-Show Storerooms?

Some of the older temples have coded storerooms, but for the most part I don't think they work or they are blocked off by old hero coding that used to have faith managers and guild heroes at lv 51. I think the only working area storerooms are either blocked by mobiles or are simply uncoded spaces se...

Re: Purpose of food clock?

The current food system is better than the older one we had. That system required you to eat regularly at a greater rate. The current one requires you to eat liberally now and then.

Re: Dark races and boredom

You don't have to build areas, you can design them, meaning item descriptions, questlines, room descriptions and mobiles etc. Then you find a builder in game interested and they build it. Personally though, I've seen a few things added to the Underdark in the last few months, all good areas for solo...

Re: Penalties for Underdark races on the surface

Are you offering to code the mechanics for this though? My goal is to present a solution that can be accomplished immediately. If you know the afflictions required why not play at being affected by them?
