As the wizard said to the monk, "You MAD, bro?"

If you created a char with lots of int and wis for spellcasting and then wanna become a fighter, you kinda need to create a new char, or suffer from being much worse than other fighters? This is why we should consider changing the stat selection system from allocation limiting to results limiting. ...

Re: Being Hidden As A Substitute For Range

If you go back and re-read my note, I think you'll see that we are almost completely in agreement, Zhar. I mean, I am actually of the opinion that spatial awareness is actually in the can't be done without completely rewriting Genesis one way or another category, and that inter-container combat is a...

Re: Racestat modifiers, 'ere we go again!

Let's get back to the discussion and come up with some ideas how to remedy the problem (if we decide that there is a problem) with race stat modifiers. I think you put the cart (poll) before the beating of the possibly dead horse, such that I am not sure we'll get much of anywhere. Still, I think t...

Being Hidden As A Substitute For Range

The Elven Archers are also scheduled for recode. [...] we're still at the planning stages. I can't recall the thread(s) that spawned this, but I've been kicking around a couple thoughts about Genesis' lack of spatial awareness and the difficulties of location based combat... It occurs to me that it...

Re: What are you reading right now?

Thanks to the game you can now buy The Witcher books in english. I recommend those if you like the "down and dirty" fantasy. Okay. It looks like I want to start by adding The Last Wish translated by Danusia Stok to my queue, right? As long as we're talking books: I am just starting the fourth Flavi...

Conflating Players, Characters, Guilds and Councils

I don't think anyone here is really arguing that a player should not be able to determine most aspects of their character(s). Guilds are much more static things and many of them have specific lore that needs to be honored. It should be possible to role play against type with a guild. However, it is ...

It ends: Therefore, if Santa did exist, he's dead now.

One thing that I would find illuminating, and might be good for community processing of this issue, would be a well-constructed list of what people consider to be the most reprehensible examples of guild councils who show full disregard for roleplay. What guilds are we talking about? Is it the enti...

The Calian Teaming Tangent

Normaly I wouldn't suggest this since I like the idea of infiltrating enemy teams and trying to corrupt goodies but lately I have seen somethings that just makes me wonder what happened to Genesis. I remember talks about Calians teaming with DA (I did it too! :P) when DAs opened even back then ther...
