Re: Badguy Race Ideas

Here's a few random thoughts: Wargs and Spiders are obviously very limited as PCs. I'd suggest giving them some kind of purpose and a level of staff support that normal PCs would not have, and turn them into a sort of human-controlled mini boss for the "good guys." For example, maybe give them a nat...

Player Staff Meeting Info for those unable to attend

Will there be logs, minutes, or recordings posted of the player staff meeting?

Also, has any consideration been given to having a forum thread or the like that players who won't be able to attend can post a question or two to?

Re: RPP Proposal

I think the essence of Songweaver's point is that too much player freedom can have a splintering effect on the playerbase from the few top-tier players each deciding to do their own, separate thing. His concern, I assume, is that this may not be ideal when we are still tiny. A very extreme example w...

Re: RPP Proposal

It would seem to disproportionately benefit skill grinders however, in a way that static costs per set amount of skill points would not. If one RPP gets you X number of skill points that benefits a player who doesn't raise many skills by a high amount over the course of their PCs life as much as it...

Speaking as someone slowly thinking about crawling out of the woodwork of inactivity and ennui, this looks like it could be a step in the right direction.

Orcish is a bastardized variant of Common Speech, as is Dalish. They really are within the same family of tongues, think of Arabic spoken in Egypt vs that spoken in Lebanon vs that spoken in Afghanistan. Or perhaps English as spoken in the heart of Wales vs that spoken in Texas. That wouldn't reall...

I see no bar for air, when swimming. If my own atonement experience is of any indication, you should probably count this as a feature, not a bug. Super aliens? No problem. Taking a dip? GOD HELP YOU.

The bar does eventually show up, it just isn't an instantaneous arrival.

I actually had to sit underwater for about 30 seconds before it showed up and started ticking away.

Re: Public Comment - Exits

It's sort of irritating when you type 'scan' to read rnames and have to scroll to read them. Also annoying that shooting bows in those directions crashes the game. Otherwise, I got over them. I haven't run into the issue of shooting in the new directions crashing the game.. I've actually done it qu...

Most of the time northwest gets you to the same place north and then west or west and then north does. But other times, it doesn't. And the real confusion is with things like downsoutheast from a room that otherwise goes east, north, west, northwest, southwest, and up. For the most part, it's not qu...
