Re: Patch week!

The only "melee" stat that isn't as important to a caster as it is to a fighter, is strength. A caster without dex and con is dead meat. So... in a name of fairness, how are fighters penalized for not having any mental stats? Do you see the completely insane setup that fighters need to rely on only...

Re: Patch week!

Spell casting success now - for the first time - takes into account the targets stats (or stat) in comparison to the casters. Discipline is the caster dexterity now. A low disciplined caster is going to have a hell of a time successfully casting against a disciplined target. Generally try to avoid ...

Re: Patch week!

I think most players are overthinking the impact of racial modifiers for the more common caster races. And I wouldn't recommend dying down to focus on discipline without doing some testing. Also the argument that melee guilds only need to focus on three stats is in most cases not true. And the chang...

Re: Patch week!

Does this mean magic resistance will be as readily available as normal armours? No. It means magic resistance damage mitigation needs to scale in a similar fashion to armours. It doesn't do that currently. Might I suggest adding some resistance to all items? Some low roll upon spawn? Maybe based on...

Re: Vampire RPG

Genesis has had quite a few iterations of vampire guilds in the game... and it was the original one which resulted in this game getting its hooks in to me... the Vampyrs of Emerald. Those closed in mid-1994 from memory before I ever joined them (thematically awesome, terrible code), but it was the h...

Re: Underlying cause and proposed solution to broken trust

Do I understand correctly that the design of mercenaries is such as not to achieve the CAID limit? Or do I have this wrong? In the way guilds are currently assessed with caid special caps, that is technically correct. They don't use anywhere near the maximum occupational caid cap allowed for occupa...

Re: Underlying cause and proposed solution to broken trust

Excellent answers Arman, thank you. I don't feel the current system is 40:40:20 atm (WH/SP/LSp), it feels more like 70:20:10 of what i can see on the npcs i kill, but its excellent if you're aiming for the 40:40:20 then just need to figure out why its not the way it is right now. Run simulations on...
