Re: Army Abilities

Thanks for replying Wren! I meant for Standards to be our craft, which means that everyone would get the slot (like Enclave tattoos). I'm a few items away from full build, but right now I have 996 spell power fully buffed (multiple buffs from spells) and am just at 1000 mana. The only way for me to ...

Re: Army Abilities

Proposed Army Abilities So key design concepts for me were moving away from abilities that heavily influence the player from discarding entire playstyles (like Warlock) because the abilities are so highly tuned for another (Heavy Armor melee). I also wanted to respond to the people who are upset tha...

Army Abilities

I’ve been asked multiple times to make a post on the forum reviewing the current mechanics of the Army. In addition to giving feedback on mechanics, I will try to make notes on “flavor” because that is an important and attractive part of this MUD. I didn’t want to do so right away because I’m only l...

Black Sapphire Tavern Officer Lounge Notices

Clinging Frost, Day 14 Year 814 Fellow Officers, It has been exactly one year since I wrote to convey Major Zado’s order to march on Bezyl, Araknai Queen. You will recall Bezyl was slain in the Turning Wheel of that year. Since then, I have engaged in constant bloody reconnaissance to discover the c...

Re: New Race: Reptilian

Great idea using the reptilians! I really like the racials. The tail rake is thematic and increased accuracy would be a desirable racial.

What do you think of switching regeneration with a small amount of damage type resistance much like Natural Resistance? You could link it to the thick scales.

Re: March on Bezyl, Araknai Queen

Soldiers! See below report. While you read, do not forget the rise in crime in Rhojidan on this date while our forces were on the March. We've received intelligence that the head of the Sinshade family told his people to stay home and profit while we risked our lives. Day 18 of the Turning Wheel in ...

Re: Enchant Item

The downside is that you lose some need to group. You can get your items enchanted and never need to see that mage again. The time limit means you will need to group with a mage or negotiate rebuffs from a friendly mage.

Re: Exploring the Northern Sea

It is true that the Northern Sea is not an easy grid. However, it is not random. The room exits are predictable once you know them. There are paths to the pirate ship and every room that can be reproduced 100% of the time. The way it is set up is for flavor - it is a giant, scary ocean as the descri...

Re: Mount bonuses

Thank you Beriedir! I appreciate you posting your test results. What is distressing for me is that I don't really want to invest in riding, but feel like I need to for Army. I've got the first four Army abilities, and so far only the 10 inventory slots means anything. The armor from level 40 was wor...
