Re: And I thought I was an addict (old SOI stats)

I'm happy to see Midas made the Atonement list with the least amount of effort. Part of me thinks he would have preferred it that way.

Re: How Do We Do This Thing?

As long as the staff are active, I'll do my best to stir up my own fun on the game. As long as I'm having fun, I'll keep playing. I do feel like I've gotten my money's worth from SOI. ;)

Re: Omotes!

I like to at least see a proper omote included, instead of just the OOC number flag. I use the numbers at times, especially after reorganizing a large area of objects, and usually the info is for the benefit of newbies.

Beef Made Easy

If we ever get cows, I thought this diagram would be useful for future reference on their cuts, quartering parts, and cooking preferences.

Don't treat PCs the same as NPC threats. This sort of behavior is a surefire way to lose my respect.

Re: Farewell For Now

Frankly, up until a day ago, I was going stop frequenting the forums. I used to be a member of RPI communities in the past, but this negativity really is cancerous.

Re: Gear Creep and Perception

... I did introduce broken flame-torches in ALPHA, though, which I've always admitted was a mistake; I got better at scripting these sorts of things in more balanced ways later on. In the final two phases of Atonement that I ran (second half of GAMMA with Tiamat, and OMEGA), the only real nasty tha...

Can folks no longer see this craft on the General-cooking list? I don't have the cooking skill: You know the...

Re: Presence

It seems the smarter thing here is to add more support and uses, not remove a stat and need to rebalance every PC in game. ;) I'm actually sort of tempted to make some gambling crafts/progs that call on it. Mmm, I've had some luck-based characters in Fallout New Vegas that cleaned out all of the ca...

You set aside 12 hunk of raw horse meats and 6 chunk of raw boar fats, finishing your work. You take up a shar...

As you sleep, you dream of a wondrous addition to the game. Suddenly, upgrade only takes a month! And presence is visible in score, and works with upgrade!

Re: Object Adjustments

I think the durability for maille needs to be checked. One good hit in bog-iron left a huge damage on it. Kind of sucks to get such a damage so easy when the armor takes 4 ingots to make. I understand the need for it to have constant upkeep as a price for having armor. But going out a few times and...

Re: Crafting Requests

Boar fat turns rancid very fast in comparison to most meats. To the point where if you want to process it, you better cut it and be ready to craft with it immediately afterwards.

Re: Policy: Teach Command Usage

So, having acquired a bit more experience with the SoI3 teach command, I get the impression it's not what it used to be: 1. A single teach no longer appears sufficient to open a skill to the point where it's visible on one's skillsheet and one can access associated crafts. 2. Most skills don't requ...
