Resignation

Dear all, I guess this is somehow you all might have expected because of my inactivity in the last year. I have been thinking about this step for a long time and it wasn't an easy decision. Often I thought, I will only take a break and motivation will come back but no, it didn't. I just checked my h...

Re: Facebook Advertisment

What about a picture with the faction crests and as a slogan: "We don't have Winter but all kinds of factions and houses!"

Maybe we can use the GoT hype for ourselves.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

What about running the video in double speed? At least for the hunting part (all the seconds after the discussion)?

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

This goes totally off-topic if we are going to discuss the state of the catholic church. Please discuss the failures of the catholic church and the effects of enlightenment and liberalisation somewhere else. Thank you.

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

Ever heard this saying? "If the mountain won't come to Mohammed, then let's take Mohammed to the mountain". ;) It isn't a one-direction approach for only one side. Both will need to move to find each other. I'm also not sure if you have read the whole priest concept in Ars Magica, because it will no...

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

Yes, a priest without followers hasn't been and will not be powerful. It has always been essential for priests to have followers but with the new system as it is drafted, people will be more interested in following priests, which should make it easier for you to get followers.

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

Furthermore, the idea of the priest system is to place priests as an important center for groups and to motivate people to gather as (bigger) groups, since we expect that it will result in more RP. If one requirement for certain gods is to have only very few followers, it opposes the idea of bringi...

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

First a tip. If you like to convince people of your ideas, you better save any flame or sarcasm for yourself. All I wanted was to give you some background where the Ars Magica concept comes from and on what it was based on. The links to the discussions, drafts, suggestions, etc. should be in Estrali...

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Is it possible to have the English and German texts in different colours in your videos? I was also wondering if it would be better to record the video with English interface and to cut out any OOC talk. What do you think?

Re: Rudimentary Priest Magic

The reason why the older gods were left out from the priest system was because we thought they should not be controlled by scripts but GMs, similar like rituals for magic currently, which need to be checked and discussed with GMs in order to allow more freedom but also to avoid abuse. If we script t...

Re: Ork Chief Duels

My experience, the Chief should be an active main character. Similar for the Shaman and the Warlord but not as important as for the Chief. Anything else tends to fail. The Dar'krest clan proved that pretty well. The same applies for any other guild/group. I feel like this is entirely directed towar...

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

I would see our shortcomings rather with missing advertising. We don't even have those 14 year old hack and slasher trying our game. Plus, if we would go this path, I think we would have to compete with graphics and other stuff, which we can't. We, therefore, need to focus on a niche, which we don't...

But you always have progress. regardless what you do in those three hours IG, you will always have the same progress. If you want to have progress, just play according to your preferences.

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

Another point jumps to my eyes and could be an issue but was never really mentioned in a way I would have recognized it. If I am not wrong (Estralis/Jupiter, please correct me if so), the MC is a global value, right? The same MC value applies for for all skills. Whether you skill farming or mining, ...

Re: Skill countdown

OK, I'm not understanding skill progress. Teflon would have me believe that if I kill 1 rat or 100 rats in 1 week's time, I will progress the same amount in my chosen weapon of Cleric's staff. Karrock would suggest that I need kill "something" to advance as a farmer. To which all of this doesn't ma...

Re: A question about dwarves for character creation

You can use the predefined values (90kg & 1.33m) in the character creation. I think most dwarven characters have around these values. You are, however, free to chose any of the possible values. Hope, it helps and welcome!

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

The fact that we are not able to monitor or check our mc is also frustrating, and implies further that we are expected to sit down and not use skills, except for rare occasions. The thing with the MC is that it would not change anything if you know the MC or not. The MC adjusts to your style of pla...

Skill countdown

http://illarion.org/community/forums/viewtopic.php?p=701982#p701982 Based on the discussion above, I would like to discuss a countdown for skilling. It sounds to me as the whole skilling system is still perceived as confusing. I feel as many players are not aware that it doesn't matter how often or ...

Re: Really?

To clarify things. - The text wasn't written by any of us but a guy who tested the game. We should be glad he did and rated us with 5/5 instead of calling him drunk. We, however, should add a more detailed but at least accurate and appealing review. - He doesn’t write that Illarion is at war but tha...

Re: Was there a time when Illarion had more than 10 players

I am sure technical aspects (account and character creation being in a terrible state, controls needing getting used to, graphics looking vintage) and the lack of advertisement (both resulting in a player influx Nitram called 'as good as none') weighting far heavier than the few quarrels sparked by...
