Re: Hunger/Thirst

Hunger and thirst seem to build up insanely fast. I'm having trouble actually keeping enough liquid around for a PC.

Re: Trust

Am droll. Honestly? Kory and Risthe's posts are actually exactly how I would handle it. Make a staff post, putting out a call for something. Keep said role in line with everything else. Exactly as we would looking for the infirmary replacement. Seems like the simplest way to handle it, my opinion. Y...

Re: Trust

Am I offended? No, just bringing up points that others have already voiced. As Songweaver has said, you've got a player base in a game that has had some very shady staff problems over the last 10 plus years. Ignoring the pitfalls that Kite, Rhubarb, Shadow, etc/etc fell into while staffing is danger...

Re: Broken Crafts

You know the following admin crafts:

This replaced the craft to start iron ingots, making iron ingots impossible to make now.

Re: Paying RPP for Stat Boosts

I am in favour of people being able to do a 1 time deal, where they spend RPP to get a mixture of stat boosts and debuffs, like how we do it for newly created characters with RPP. Right now players are able to game the system to roll 8 presence, luck out and end up with 93 total stat points, and en...

Re: Riveted Coifs

I never would have guessed what a coif is. I feel enlightened. This is the rough set of mail: Chausses, Gauntlets, Hauberk, Helm. This is riveted: Chausses, Gauntlets, Hauberk, Coif. We used to have rough coifs and spangehelms. Now all we have is the helm. They got taken out of the game, presumably ...

1. Thank god for the endurance or whatever its called on mail going up. It was frankly kind of ridiculous having worn stuff after a single spar. 2.

Re: Higher quality shields craftable

Would love this as well. Just because as it currently stands, there is 0 reason to actually be a shield man. The starter shields just don't give any benefit, deflect wise. You are better off with a second weapon out.

I don't really have an opinion on concussion vs bleeding, but the weapon speeds in game bug me. For some reason short swords and long swords attack at the same speed.
