Re: What types of characters are needed?

Whatever you would enjoy more. Though steer clear of religion, switching it out for stories with a moral has long been the preferred way of dealing with any sort of religion. It has never been a large part (or even a significant part) of the game. The orc side however, by all means you can create yo...

Re: What is Shadows of Isildur?

It will forever be the place i met my wife of some 5 years now, as a roguish skirtchaser in snakeskin pants. It is to me a beautiful woman you want to spend all your waking hours with, to make her laugh, to smile, to blush and giggle, to recall fondly with and be smashed in the gut with a mace with.

Re: sharpen wicked-blade

This is a roleplay mandatory game, there is more to than skill gains. The aim is roleplay, to engage with each other, to create stories, tales, memories and celebrate the Tolkien legend. It is not to go out, kill, craft, rinse and repeat. Though I have taken this off topic. Wicked-blades yes! Keep t...

Re: sharpen wicked-blade

If the town has a plethora of a given type of hide, i see no issue with it being used for hide armour... thats standard economics there. The only real issue I see is the fact that it detracts from the vision of staff. Not a bad reason, just saying its likely the main reason. But if that is the case...

Re: sharpen wicked-blade

Honestly, I would love to see the crafts be the same for everyone, regardless of sphere. Now, having the craft take your racial/cultural differences into account, and change the finished product accordingly.... That would be sweet, but likely hell to code. Just because human's aren't fond of maggot...

Re: How Do We Do This Thing?

The issue here is that the existing veterans probably aren't welcoming newbies in such a way, when there are newbies. They probably aren't even welcoming non-newbies very effectively. At least, this wasn't the case from the hour or two of play experience I had, and it's something I've seen become a...

Re: Interacting with important NPCs

Can staff write in players journals? If so it would make use of an under used asset. It is essentially a private IG board for a character.

Re: Orc Gambling : Toss

That's the thing, in the past people would draw a weapon and shout "HA! NOT SO TOUGH NOW ARE YOU?" as they attack their opponent which utterly defeats the point of the art of spatting. It's mean to get under the skin, to annoy, to distract, shame, offend and such. Another thing is you don't just str...

Re: Skillcap

I'm really amazed at how quickly some folks are able to increase their skills. Translated: You little dirty twinks. As a new player I wish I knew their secrets, my skills (Except for one) seem to rise at a glacial rate. :( Then good! You roleplay! We want you to stay, live long and enjoy yourself! :D

Re: Skillcap

You're right, but I think you misunderstood or I said that in a way that reasoned misunderstanding. In my opinion a hardcap dictates how much you are able to do and how proficient you'll be at it. That's fine. What I don't agree with is that is limits you the player to two roles, that of a crafter ...

Depth does not come from skill-gains. If you feel your character lacks depth it is an RP problem, not a coded one.
