Re: [Feedback Request] Current Armor & Weapons

A lot of code seems to be funneled into the after effects of being shot with an arrow in these requests, it seems, but for good reason. Getting shot with an arrow should generally just SUCK ASS. But at the same time, shields should definitely block arrows. That was a component in the old engine, not...

Well, this isn't pressing, so I can put it on hold until time is less of a factor I suppose?

Re: PVP: how is it these days?

Because of the way bleeding works, in relation to archery, no, unless that person is entirely willing to let you sit down and bind before making any other emotes or actions, and why do that? That takes away a coded advantage, one of the only, and you'd have been better off not shooting the arrow to ...

Re: PVP: how is it these days?

On the other hand, I would expect Warg pcs to have a higher behavioral standard than to just attack someone outright even if it -does- look like they are trying to 'combat log' as it were. There is so much that the Wargs as a race need to prove right now such as interaction capability beyond 'hit x...

The Great Hunt and the Darkness That Swallowed the Land

I'm organizing an RPT of sorts for those occupying the Bad Guy sphere. It's somewhat combat oriented, as is typical for our sort of player, and also some other stuff. Some hashing out of when would be the most optimum time for this would be wise. And of course, for the Good Guys, you're welcome to j...

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

I don't know what happened here, but Songweaver isn't -just- being sarcastic when he says "less controversial than I am". It's pretty patently true that he's more likely to cause a stir by getting crap past the proverbial radar than, say...someone else who's recently done just that has. Apparently j...

Re: Warg Docs

Even if a female warg were to somehow rise to a position of prominence, the reaction wouldn't be automagically accepting and equitable. There IS going to be sexual bias, that's kind of unavoidable when you're discussing what is basically a patriarchal society. Does that mean that I support inequali...

Yes, I'm entirely sure those two things are exactly the same in every respect. How did it never once ever occur to me? Clearly I have been enlightened by this exchange of information.

Re: Warg Docs

I don't really think there needs to be less. There's already nothing stopping anyone from attempting to roleplay a female warrior-queen with long flowing locks and a shining steel sword. Dave Poole, the sellsword from Sharteshane, is still going to treat her with contempt, but Dave Poole is but a po...

It must be 0%, or you must provide deterrents or advantages to the "bad guys" in which they are able to cause harm and life-threatening wounds to the guys wearing the 20%, oh so better, kick your asses dwarf chain. Yeah, that seems awfully black or white, but the reason we're dealing in absolutes is...

Re: Warg Docs

In the words of a fellow gibbering, sputtering non-PC maniac I know, I really don't see why everything has to be completely socially just in the context of a fictionalized world in which role playing and writing occurs for the purposes of fun. Why equity has to be at the forefront of policy or perso...

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

It stands to reason, that orcs wouldn't ever be mentioned, by the way, as it's heavily implied that the Lord of the Rings and indeed the Hobbit are told from the perspective of a person, in a "history is written by the victor" sort of sense. So who WOULDN'T exaggerate the powers and deeds of people ...

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

I've always been partial to special applications combined with a requisite level of trust/decorum. I don't think someone who can't play an Elf as far in line with canon as possible should play an Elf, although the problem is, if that really was the case, then everyone who ever played an Elf would ha...

Also, to tail-end both of what Krelm and Oblivion and Kory have said, you as an admin, or if you're a player, who was playing one of the "good guy superfriends", might say, Confirmation Bias !

I'm not close to having enough rpp to play a warg -anyway-, but I wonder what you would think would happen if a female warg was the strongest in the pack? I mean, if she could hypothetically beat everyone up, what would really stop her from running the show? Also, is there anywhere in canon that st...

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

Largely hyperbole. I'm of the mind that Elves and Dwarves should be playable. I'm not of the mind that they should be kickass Superfriends who romp in like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator, chewing through one-liners like bubblegum and gibbing PCs. Obviously that's probably not going to happen, but...
