Orcs/Infravision/Night/Day penalties

Post by Matt » Mon Apr 14, 2014 8:01 pm

So what's the stance on how orcs will deal with daytime? Will it be like classic SOI where they take negatives in the day and see in the dark?

Sticking with a more classical interpretation. Orcs are more comfortable than humans in low light, and don't like the sun, but really there are no coded penalties or benefits.

Orcs still need torches down in the darkness.

This makes me a little sad... but I'll learn to accept it. :)

Can I have an orc craft for big floppy sun hats?

Frigga, please include big floppy hats in the hat varlist for Zargen ;)

I think this is a great decision because it will promote interaction between orcs and men at all times. No reason now for Men not to respond to a night raid because of OOC penalties.

I think it's great because men will feel fear rising within them as they see the flicker of torches out by the old shed.

Wait, what were we talking about again? :twisted:
