Re: Armor Layering

people back in the middle ages actually did do this. Virtually anyone wearing chainmail would wear a jack of leather or padded cloth underneath to absorb blows. If doing this somehow combines the AC of both pieces of armour and gives you almost double the AC you normally have, then I'm for getting i...

keep in mind you can use grip to shift to a two-handed hold on a weapon. This way your feces covered stick will do 2 damage instead of 1

Overall thoughts on the sphere? You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious. Headed in a good direction? Yes. Icarus has been holding some amazing RPTs for us.

Re: For Blood and Glory (A PVP Guide)

the part about striking at body parts when your opponent falls is wrong. Soon as your enemy hits the floor, aimed strikes are codedly impossible until he gets back up on his feet. Only way to do it is if you type in your aimed attack right before he falls, but there's no way to know when your oppone...

Re: Losing interest

of course, the game will also need to be given a meaningful reason to want to obtain that ransom gold. Could be a good idea for staff to brainstorm money sinks. Give each side the ability to buy steel for 8000cp an ingot, or some high price like that. Once warcraft comes in, maybe highly skilled mer...

Re: Losing interest

Yes, staff has always had a no humans in vadok / no orcs in utterby rule. Tis because people abused it on old SOI and invariably created frankly absurd situations. so what motivation is there for orcs to not just kill everyone they defeat outright? I prefer capturing hostages over the idea of just ...

I did feel dirty shooting first, but the generally accepted method of pvp I get from the last 5 pages of bickering is that everyone attacks first. I opted not to attack first in the 2nd most recent pvp engagement you were involved in. If you feel dirty pulling a han-solo, then be the change you wan...

Re: The great wishlist

This is pretty random, but if there was a prog in Striza's Rudder where you could trade either rough, bog-iron shortswords or cave orc/goblin heads for 2 cp it would probably declutter the mines a lot and make a sort of bounty system to tie in with the new meat buyer. Or, we could melt them into bo...

Re: Losing interest

I hear what bjg is saying. If the conflict was something more along the lines of human kingdom vs human kingdom, there would be a lot more options and politics involved. Though I think once warcraft finally goes in, pvp will become a bit more meaningful.

Re: Losing interest

All of this. ARM just doesn't care. They recognize that in PvP code takes precedence over RP, as that's the only way to do it. I feel there's a lot to consider in this statement. I think that Jarlhen may be right, that really, in PvP it is only about the code ultimately. Perhaps we're being naive a...

Re: What do you think about hunting?

it's already possible for the variables in material type to modify an items durability, weight and deflect boosts (Though armour deflect boost is still broken, I believe).

Re: What do you think about hunting?

to balance hunting to make it a viable trade in utterby, aggro creatures could just be wolves, wargs, spiders and various other things where their meat and furs are near worthless to humans. This would prevent the common occurrence of getting all the meat and furs you need to support your crafters e...

Re: Losing interest

Its hard to pass up the massive chance to instantly kill someone to reveal yourself and rp with prey. we passed it up anyways, and I think the chance for some roleplay leading up to the combat was more rewarding than having every...
