Re: The case for closure – fighter guilds

Dudes.. This was an exercise in arguing for something I don't believe in. Some would call it playing devil's advocate. I don't want to close any guilds any more than you do, and for the record: I think Hektor is right.

The case for closure – fighter guilds

So lately the same argument has been is repeated over and over – we need fewer occupational guilds, lest we end up in a reality where there’s an occupational guild per person. Guilds in Genesis define a character for life or exist either as a stepping stone towards something greater or just a source...

Re: The rise of the Nameless Horror!

Zhar, You think the days of the Khiraa are (sadly) over, and that is of course an opinion. One you’re much welcome to have. Your personal preference to an “evil/neutral ranger-style guild” is already met – you’d know them as the Fire Knives. A sneaky, backstabbing bunch with a certain fondness for ...

Re: The rise of the Nameless Horror!

I was going to wait with my reply, but Varian just demonstrated what happens when you don't pay attention in class (I might be guilty of this myself, so bear with me). I present to you, exhibit A, the link to the thread on which it happened: https://www.genesismud.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=374...

The rise of the Nameless Horror!

Some of us have been around long enough to remember the Khiraa. For me, as a fresh newbie, meeting a death knight riding an undead horse was one of my first "awe inducing" moments in Genesis. However, many of the active players today have no idea what the hell Khiraa was and what all the fuss is abo...

Re: Racial Rebalancing News?

You can have a human be good at anything, but I can only recall one goblin mage and a couple gnome/Kender warriors. If you're going to edit racials, take away the drawbacks and add very minor increases to choice stats, or a free secondary focus. The "original" 100 100 100 100 100 100-human would of...

Re: Racial Rebalancing News?

What a load of horse manure. The problem isn't derailing, at least if you're also able to stear back onto the tracks, so here goes (again): There is no problem with races, save one - the dwarf. The goodies really do lack a goblin equivalent, and the solution to this is to just remove the penalty to ...

Re: Alignment

From another post I've always had issues with how alignment is determined in Genesis, and if it were up to me it would be elective at character creation, with possibility of changing it upon death, same as one can change race. I can't be bothered to get all philosophical about this (pearls before sw...
