Re: Older Players

Wow, I recognize quite a few names here and have fond memories of them. :) Why did you start playing, what were you looking for? I was looking for an online game with a graphical interface and some sort of game mechanics where people actually roleplayed. If you quit, why did you quit playing and how...

Re:

Hi Ezor for me, i'm find i am often restricted in role play to game mechanics (ie, i want to play a lone archer, but i don't have skills to kill a rabbit), it would be great to play mid level _____, but the amount of time it takes to get there and the work is a pain in the ass. i barely have time to...

My inspiration for Moirear Sian was a mixture between a young Han Solo and a D&D thief character I had played a loooong time before Illarion. I have an inspiration for a new character to play some time soon, but I don't want to spoil it; suffice to say that any old school gamers would possibly recog...

IMO there shouldn't be any permanent penalties to character death, like losing items or skill points. That kind of stuff is really yesteryear, and I think, is wrongly supposed to instill fear of the character's death in the player . A temporary penalty where stuff is lowered for a certain amount of ...

Permanent penalties from character death are not adequate to begin with, I think. A massive but temporary cut in stats and skills would be more appropriate. As in, your character gets "ghosted", and after x time in game or y time logged out the stat and skill decreases are negated. The way to fix pe...

It had been a trident for a while, until someone or the other complained that they weren't in the game engine, so I just defaulted to what I had actually had him using: a halberd. :roll:

No worries though. There won't be anything out of the ordinary this time around. :wink:

Re: Hello.. give me a break

People where I live wave at eachother when we pass... they do it when driving too, if they are moving slow enough. The people of Illa (or Golbiath) are more friendly than people in RL. This can be chalked up to a lack of social networking and entertainment. A Illa-person's entertainment is being so...

I think it's a valid complaint though.

The original post leads me to assume that nuisance ensued, just for nodding in response to a stranger randomly greeting the character.

Thanks for all the help!

I must also note it's a lot easier to get into the game again (compared to older iterations of Illarion), with the manuals, Noobia and the packages and all that.

Good stuff.

You know how you can write descriptions for characters on the website when managing your characters on your account?
Is it possible to relay the character's written description in game or is that only for viewing via the website?

Yeah, I just checked things out. Looking good so far, great job re-organizing things and making character creation so easy, to whom it concerns. :D

Thanks again for the info Hadrian, those changes sound very promising.

Thanks for the warm welcome (back) everyone. 2. The 'character build' just gives a minor increase, its not particularly useful - but you also get starting equipment, so its mostly for that. The starting equipment is actually good enough to get you going for a while What "sets" are up for picking? In...

Starting out

Hi, I haven't played in ages and seeing this game has gone through a lot of changes, I have some questions as to how to play. If I think up a rough character concept, how well can I represent it in a new character build? Are there some starting skills you can pick from in order to have some beginnin...

Looking at adventure fiction, most characters survive by the skin of their teeth if they have a drive to live or survive; they are oftenly left mistakenly for dead. The break occurs when people envision their own character as the protagonist of a collaborative adventure fiction, which is not an ent...

As strange and sketchy as it may sound, do what I suggest for designing all sorts of villains (RPGs or fiction): Don't gamble on people's fear of death, gamble on their fear of losing something else. Making them lose face, humiliating them, hurting their loved ones, destroying their relationships. ...

Realistically speaking: You're probably all wrong about the rings in the swords. :D A type of Chinese broadsword has nine rings on the blunt side of the blade (Jiu Huan Dao), and it is widely assumed they have served the following purposes: - When parrying, they can provide more control over the op...

Keep it in-game? This is just a silly suggestion, although if you read in between the lines, it might appear less silly. A big deal of roleplaying to me is about going with the flow. What I'm trying to say is that it might be interesting to challenge (even if only verbally) "vampiric powers" of a s...

I concur with the first death in a row already giving a powerful temporary stat cut.

2. What speaks against the "maze" idea in my eyes is that it defines an "afterlife" concept too much. The more that is open to one's imagination, or rather the character's the more margin there is for creativity on the subject. What speaks against the temporary ban in my eyes is, well, durrr! You c...

In no way does a villain-wannabe player like me qualify to represent a majority of players, and that isn't really the point I was getting at. To clarify, what I meant with simplicity is that this game has gotten a whole deal more easy to play than it used to be when I started out. And seriously, th...

Yeah, but what is so bad about basic food being easily obtained otherwise? As I said above, food from cooks should be considered a luxury commodity (and be treated as such - in game terms, giving them a special edge for reward - I find that a great idea), but that's just my opinion. There were time...
