Re: Suggestions

Which will then make people have to place orders for armor more often bogging the crafters down even further. This doesn't sound like much of a solution to me. I don't see why ordinary quality armor should be rare at all. That's precisely what ordinary means. When good and superior quality armors a...

Re: Suggestions

Honestly, Utterby doesn't even really have a lack of supplies either. There are plenty of hunters bringing in pelts and Logs are easy to come by. There's also been a ton of iron squirreled away. The only issue is, there are maybe 2 weapon crafters for the whole sphere, and one competent armorer. Th...

Re: Suggestions

An easier solution be would to make all this stuff available in the final shop in character generation; basic leathers, low-grade spangen helms, mid to low grade weapons, and most if not all crafting tools. This would allow new characters to spend their starter coin to come IG reasonably equiped if...

How do the orcs manage it? How do the orcs manage it? Fascist Communism and active leadership. pretty much this.

Weapons -would- probably be about a -lot- faster if there was demand for anything but the absolute best, but so far there hasn't been a single person I've seen in game who didn't immediately want an oquality honed iron weapon the instant they leave chargen.

I also imagine a hefty amount of recycling arms/armor from the deceased, something that's strictly frowned upon on human sphere. That, and orcs haven't had much problem with getting weapons from humans as is. :lol:

Re: Suggestions

To be honest, I don't think it particularly matters how it is done but Utterby needs equipment readily available for new characters to buy/otherwise equip themselves with. Similarly, there needs to be opportunities for new characters to pursue that will immediately allow them to begin to progress a...

Re: Suggestions

Wait, does the PCs not have control over the pricing of goods in their shop? Didn't they use to? If not, that's an absolutely massive oversight and should really be addressed. I've always been under the impression that they had this power. If that's the case I'll have to re-assess my stance on prod...

Re: Armor Layering

I mean really, we can try and point fingers at armor and say it was to blame, but it's been the same whether we've had armor layering or not. But it's not been, because armor-layering was unique to Atonement's Alpha, which had unique problems you aren't addressing. Also: compare hatc axe Compared t...

Re: Armor Layering

The unfortunate thing that is common for SOI and other RPIs is wide speculation on how systems actually work. For instance, did you know that ambush doesn't directly increase the amount of damage that you do when you hit? Instead, it greatly increases your likeliness to hit, with a very minor impro...

If we take what Icarus said as fact, that means that if you have a gambeson and hauberk and layer them.

I don't get auction houses. I could have sworn we tried them back in the old SoI. Or was I thinking of another mud? I can't remember. Either way, they're pointless. The purpose of an auction house is to auction off items. Not to stop vNPCs to buy. So unless it's items that a lot of people want and ...

They do in fact use coin generated ICLY instead of appearing out of thin-air. At least for the lodge. The drawback however is that coin still appears from thin air thanks to vnpcs and shops.

Re: The glorious Twinking thread!

On another note, there is no cap to how many times you can raise a single skill in a given day. The timer is all that matters. Does the timer reset if you log out or does it carry over? You can also raise multiple skills at a time (not sure if there's a cap on how many exactly) but it means you can...

Hey! Why don't we make the 'Flee' command actually teleport you all the way back to your sphere or residence?! This would be great right?

Re: What do you think about hunting?

Re: What do you think about hunting?

As an aside, craft-timers are never 'exactly' what they say they are. The craft-timers represent zero skill, and then decrease rapidly as you increase in skill. I think Adroit dropped it by 2/3rds, last I remembered, but it's been a while. Someone else can say for sure. By the time you get to X hou...

Another thing to consider is that Bludgeons are the only weapon class that gets damage selection: axes (slash/cut) mace (crush). short-blade users also get this benefit. Daggers are are pierce/stab, and longknives are slash. Multiple damage types are something I'd like to see on all the weapon skil...

1+ for exotic types of animals. Whenever I see fox tracks I giggle and go for a real hunt.
