Re: Top Gear's Stig

[*]Removing the item limit on all items in the game. I am all for removing the item limit. [...] With a point system, hoarding against enemies could be more difficult, because racked versions would count less than carried, which in turn would count less than those recently used. It could also be tu...

< 1 ohm

Someone wearing armour protects against melee attacks. Someone with magic resistance protects against magical attacks. If you have no resistance, it is exactly the same as going into combat without any armour if you encounter a spellcaster. With melee, it's not quite so simple as all that, though, ...

Top Gear's Stig

[*]Removing the item limit on all items in the game. I am all for removing the item limit. It seems to me that if you go to the trouble of killing an upper echelon NPC, you should get it's gear. That said, this would currently introduce a game-distorting amount of gear inflation, so a correction fo...

Good Mourning!

Well there should definitely be something, but just not the heartbreaking "I wanna stop playing" feeling if you're big and do happen to get killed now. While they are related, I would think that feelings of loss from character death are actually different and distinct from a rational accounting of ...

Lies, Damn Lies, and Stats

Is there an official Genesis definition of what each stat actually is, somewhere? Perhaps unfortunately, these stats are given names in English and then seemingly left to be self-explanatory. There have been a lot of posts here that suggest that they are not. Mind you, I am not asking for an under-t...

Back Up On My High, Pale Horse

What would it be like if a feature were introduced that allowed players to use money to purchase something that would provide an instant full-recovery of all deaths? Perhaps I am misinterpreting "all deaths", but when we discussed this recently , I wanted to discuss the game differences between the...

Nuthin' but a 'G' Thang

[C]hanging the way stats play into combat would be one of the most significant things we could do to actually change the way the game plays. Therefore, it should be done with extreme caution, strong rationale, and not simply to "do something" to try to fix a perceived imbalance between racial optio...

What we've got here is failure to communicate.

Sometimes I wish I had a Strider-translator... Well, seriously, since english isnt my native language I sometimes have real trouble understanding your posts Strider... which means I probably miss the point you are trying to make. I apologize, but unfortunately I am imagining such density, nuance an...

Dump(ed Upon) Stats

Racial stat modification doesn't happen in a vacuum; it happens in a donut.

The correct solution is to make everyone more obviously MAD.

So far it hasn't surfaced But I'm sure it exists

What argument for not balancing the races is there? I just cant think of one myself, but that doesnt mean there arent any. Is this a rhetorical flourish or do you not see the arguments in these two threads that could explain not favoring some unspecified change to racial stat modifiers? I see somet...
