Easy Holy Symbol Renames

Post by Harroghty » Fri Dec 06, 2019 8:38 pm

What if major temples allowed followers to change the colors of their holy symbols for a donation and/or favor fee? Not every Cross, Star of David, etc. is the same in the real world.

I support this idea as long as rainbow is an option.







There have been a few times that I though a colour tweak would be appropriate for some characters. For some faiths the colour is important, but even within that there could be some nice variety.

I support this idea. It would be cool if you could have a "bronze trimmed" or "gilded" holy symbol. Just to give your character that little bit of extra flare.

I started with the first symbol and made a test process. Please let me know what you think about these color choices, and if you have color choices to suggest for your own PC's faith. I will also add a way to reset it to default.

Code: Select all

>give_prog i1201~
if questr(XXXXX, 0, 2, $i) == 0
  mposet i1201 short {40}a {B0}warhammer and scales{40} on a shield pendant
  mposet i1201 long {40}A {B0}richly decorated{40} pendant lies here.
else
  if questr(XXXXX, 0, 2, $i) == 1
    mposet i1201 short {C0}a {F0}warhammer and scales{C0} on a shield pendant
    mposet i1201 long {C0}A {F0}richly decorated{C0} pendant lies here.
  else
    if questr(XXXXX, 0, 2, $i) == 2
      mposet i1201 short {50}a {70}warhammer and scales{50} on a shield pendant
      mposet i1201 long {50}A {70}richly decorated{50} pendant lies here.
    else
    if questr(XXXXX, 0, 2, $i) == 3
      mposet i1201 short {80}a {F0}warhammer and scales{80} on a shield pendant
      mposet i1201 long {80}A {F0}richly decorated{80} pendant lies here.
    endif
  endif
endif

Kelemvor

Post by Areia » Wed Apr 01, 2020 11:41 am

Taken from Candlekeep:
The faith of Kelemvor does not practice the use of giving titles to priests. The title Brother or Sister is used for all priests. The scales on Kelemvor's symbol helps to identify rank.
- Iron colored for lower clergy
- Silver for full priests
- Golden for high-ranking priests
Always would have liked to have had some form of this in game, but I guess it could serve just for fashion as well, heh.

Code: Select all

{80}a skeletal hand holding {70}iron scales {80}pendant

Code: Select all

{80}a skeletal hand holding {F0}silver scales {80}pendant

Code: Select all

{80}a skeletal hand holding {B0}gold scales {80}pendant
The latter is what we have now. Maybe someone more creative could figure a suitable way to make it slightly different. Otherwise, Kelemvorites aren't generally a particularly colorful bunch.

We can tweak the Kelemvor base symbol to adjust based upon faith rank, too. Is there any interest in that generally?

There was a hard coded element built into the earlier temple for the faith of Kelemvor with three rankings like above but they required a lv 51 char and predate the current faith system. I don't think they work, but the unused items are encoded in the area file.

Tossing this in there, but I am all for recolors for holy symbols. Especially to help keep in theme with some outfits while still being faith-theme-friendly

Mystra, Sune, and Tyr are live for starters.

Added Selune and tweaked the process a little bit to make it easier.

I feel a bit like I've missed an important part of this. How has the change been implemented and how can players utilize this new feature in game?

I have given the capability to certain NPCs in the major temples of the named deities: they have a chance of sharing this new capability with faith members. The choices were either logical (e.g. Ethan the jeweler in the Temple of Beauty) or convenient (an NPC without any progs that would conflict) depending on the cases.

Should be pretty self explanatory when you find them with echoes explaining what's required. Add this to the list of random little features I like to sprinkle into temples and see who finds them. :)

Who else needs this? I guess I could do Tempus and Talos as recommended by Grenwyn.
