Re: Status?

I mostly just tried to conglomerate a bunch of the stuff that had already been posted, with some edits for grammar and the like. The document reads a little Khuroc focused right now, but I'm rather okay with that, given that that was a pretty great write-up to start with. :P I did a hasty writeup of...

Re: The great wishlist

I'd like the amount of magic, mysticism, and mystery to be increased in the game. I don't really care about across the board monster balance, economy changes, or fold baby-clothes crafts; I'm really interested in the plot of this roleplay intensive MUD. The other stuff is nice, I suppose, but if I w...

Re: Trust

You have spiders, wargs, orcs, elves, dwarves, humans, dragons, etc all in one place. The idea was that, unlike in past iterations, Dwarves and Elves would be much more mundane. They get drunk, imprison trespassers, party in the forest, drink with the humans in their tavern. Dwarves live in a mount...

Re: Shadows of Sparville II: Grind, Twinks, and Power Creep

But I want to be able to get to adroit AT least before I'm going out to try and solo warg packs for skill gains. This is, literally, the exact argument that Songweaver is arguing against. You can solo spar your way to Adroit without ever being forced to go and interact with anyone else. This is bad...

Re: Massively increasing the unconscious health pool

This is in fact an RPI, which is why death is a crucial aspect, and should be capricious, cruel, and not always satisfying. I feel like there's probably a large difference between the capricious, cruel, and dissatisfying nature of death for my character and the frustrating lack of RP or plot or sto...

Re: Massively increasing the unconscious health pool

You should also understand that if you're going to battle with [weapons] there is a coded chance that you might be struck with a critical hit that will outright kill you. The gamble! The excitement! That's why PVP is such an amazing aspect of this game. Really gets your heart rate up! This is an ad...

Re: SOI Wiki - Open Access

I'd love for people to use this as a source of common gossip about their character, and keep their character pages updated accordingly with the simple things I could find out by asking the tavern gossips about them. It'd also give people an angle to, at their convenience, release miniplot hooks into...

Re: Embarrassing

I'm not an orc player, but am very confused by this. I thought one of the entire premises of playing an orc was that if you talked shit, you might get hit? Isn't that like ... their whole schpeel? Lacking in morality and ethics, encouraged by barbarism, ambition, the strong rule and stuff? I'd alway...

Re: Bored

Not every person has it in them to be proactive. By nature the sorts of people who choose the more reserved roles tend to be the reactive players. You can't expect people to fundamentally change who they are just to progress in a game. This needs to be taken into consideration. As much as I respect...

Hello! I was wondering why moonflowers have been pulled from the gameworld.

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

That's one of the major themes of Tolkien's world, though; the races are not equal. The other races are just better than Men at certain things, specifically crafting and fighting. Watching a human warrior defeat an Elf warrior or a Dwarf warrior in single combat should be immersion breaking. I under...

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

I believe that there should absolutely be a noted, key difference between any of the RPP races and something else. They shouldn't be invincible (hence agreement on being sans Noldo Elf), but should be noticeably more powerful with noticeably better equipment, as I am spending RPP on them. Unlike a r...
