Re: A good moan

IMO, y'all are missing the point a bit, re: how emoting style or length or frequency has changed. Emoting != roleplaying. A person who never emotes, and who only uses the say command with no modifiers, can be an incredible, deep, compelling roleplayer, illustrating an amazing character. A person who...

Re: Utterby Wish List

I fully recognize that this event is legitimate cause for discussion. In fact, this is a good thing; this is an alpha, after all. The time for changes to be made. This incident has pointed out that some atmospheric/environmental changes need to be made to the orcish area so that players are better a...

Re: Utterby Wish List

I agree that clear in-game communication, in the form of NPCs, different room descriptions, and so on, regarding the reality of the situation in and immediately around the mountain, would be helpful. Regarding the idea that such an action as this charge is intrinsically an "OOC" foul, I'll use an ex...

Re: Utterby Wish List

There's literally very little in the way of "metal clad orc guards", for the record. But that's beside the point. And yeah, outraged and embarrassed. That was kind of like saying, wow, we made this mistake before, and we all learned from it, right? Right? Apparently not. I don't think you're accept...

Re: Utterby Wish List

Yeah I'm legitimately pissed, speaking from the opposite side, that that came to pass. But it was one person leading a bunch of people into the maw, and then RIGHT up to the proverbial and perhaps literal doorstep, without the majority's consent. I suppose we should've known better and chosen not t...

Re: Utterby Wish List

It's about equal, in my eyes, to showing up to the gates of Utterby in large numbers and shooting human PCs standing directly outside them.

In range of the palisades, which have vNPC archers with longbows, which would have shot the orcs dead.

So, gimme a break. Don't like it? Don't do it.

Re: Skewed Board Posts

Even regardless of topic - endless walls of text posted on boards is kind of a nightmare, as an FYI. But yes - to re-iterate, the purpose of the boards is to have quips of conversation, gossip, "looking for" ads and that kind of thing. It isn't to imply large swaths of vNPCs having one opinion or a...

Re: Skill Gain Notifications

Just do what your character would do. If you're practicing a skill, it's raising. Fuhgeddaboudit.

What does partridge branch from? I can't seem to get it despite using all the hunting crafts a bunch of times. Thanks.

Re: Arrows seem too powerful

Combat should be deadly. People should fear lethal combat. It isn't something for the faint of heart. In an RPI, it shouldn't be something your character does for shits and giggles.

Re: PVP General Thread

There should not be, in any shape or form, OOC restriction on PVP, be it sphere vs. sphere, or same-sphere. Should there be IC consequences, in both spheres? Absolutely. To make OOC "rules of engagement," or any sort of restrictions on IC behavior, in an RPI, is very much at odds with the authentic ...

Crafting with no skill in the area

I made my character, and I don't want to reroll him, but I decided I'd like a crafting skill. Problem is, no one can TEACH yet due to the restrictions on the command. Is it possible to learn any of the crafting skills "from scratch"? Maybe by repeatedly using one of the general crafts? I'm particula...

A tanning pit, a forge, etc., so people can practice their crafts.
