Re: Starting skill levels & combat skillgains

To say that "blunt wolf ends" or other silly ends didn't occur in SoI is inaccurate, but it's true enough that it didn't occur with as much alarming frequency in the latter stages of the old game as it does now in this game, especially with Atonement Engine's admittedly more brutal code. But I think...

In hindsight this probably detracts from the main conversation since it derails the thread, but with people coming close to being banned over stupid bullshit, and I don't think either Rivean or MrDvAnt deserve to be banned over a simple misunderstanding, I'll just end this detour with the following:...

Re: Ongull Adasson

You didn't just write, "Frigga, you're doing a good job, try not to let the criticism get you down!" You quote unquote labeled any criticism, which would reflect on Rivean and what he wrote, as "something he would never dare say in person" without having any idea what he wrote. Your choice of words ...

Yeah, I was looking for a different word. Okay but the whole skipping over Rivean's walls of texts is admittedly something I expected. I read about half of what Rivean posted, but I didn't disagree with what he used as a preamble to it, that he wasn't trying to rain on anyone's parade or anything. I...

Re: Ongull Adasson

Not being contrite about everything would be just as effective for cozy conversations on this forum, too, bro.

ETA: I'm missing the correct word. Uh. I guess contrary? Anyway, contrite is the opposite of what he was being.

Re: Starting skill levels & combat skillgains

You can't deny in entirety that scaling is partly motivated by having fine-tuned game mechanics for the sake of a "game" rather than the story. You can make arguments for why it aides the story, but you only need a good writer to have a good story, you don't need game mechanics for one. While it's a...

Re: Sparring, whether the target or 'fring fighter'

If there was a viable path to increasing skills other than nearly dying every single week due to the constraints of the "reasonable armor" being P-Quality leather and maybe an P-quality iron hat, there'd be less sparring. That's the focus of my posts, thus far. There are none, because there's a huge...

Re: Sparring, whether the target or 'fring fighter'

Alternatively, there'd be even less sparring if Deflect wasn't hard capped at 30 through chargen, as the bulk of this mass training in the first 2-4 weeks of a new character is directed at getting that to either Familiar or Talented for the ultra concerned players. I still don't really know why the ...

Re: Sparring, whether the target or 'fring fighter'

Crafts to bring combat skills up to a modicum of "has a chance at survival" would be the only alternative to sparring for skill gains that I can think of, as it doesn't require admin attention or abuse of the teach command to get anywhere, and can be capped at say, Talented, which is about where peo...

Re: So many Wargs.

Just set up the far shore rooms on the bog-side to keep mobs out. That means they'll wander around deeper within their territory instead of sliding around the outer edge of it, which actually increases danger because it means people have to embed themselves within the heart of darkness before the le...

Re: Medicine

Medicine might have some crafts down the line to make medical supplies, but as of now there is a use for it, it increases your chances of passing skill checks for treating wounds. First-Aid, Medicine and Education all help with that, alongside the quality of the item you use to treat someone.

Not that I'm invalidating your point that people continually play certain types of characters over a long period of time, I'm still gonna say that's a cop-out to avoid the effort of stepping outside everyone's comfort zone.

Just a good scare. To receive or to give. Dying sucks no matter how you hatch it. I'd rather steal off a living enemy and let them tell the tale than kill and loot like they were some mob.

OOCly ridicu--what?

So this suggestion will probably fall on deaf ears, but since work on crafts is being done anyway I thought why not.

Nope, keep it open. I'm still interested. There's shifting tides and players migrate all the time. Even with the bad form of breaching the IC/OOC divide, as the above, this is still relevant.
