Seeking Goldsmith

Dearest Traders, I am seeking the services of an amenable Goldsmith or merchant. My aim is to procure rings, amulets, and candleholders. In exchange for these goods, I am pleased to offer coins, precious stones, or foodstuffs. I have my eye on copper, silver, and gold jewelry but only those set with...

Re: Magic in Illarion

From a practical standpoint, the ruling that Achae linked seems pretty clear. It makes sense that GMs are responsible for determining what is possible, and what is not to maintain a coherent world. I think that players should know definitively what they can do with magic (the aforementioned rule), b...

Re: The Game // Das Spiel

During their travels in the feral reaches of Eastland, a trio discusses plans for the future. "I think it would be in our interest to collect them, for further study." "Might be worth it." "Yes, if we're in agreement, I'll collect the artifacts on my return to town." "Our first study: the dice?" Wit...

Re: Whose RP did you like today?

Kyre knocked me flat. Really interested in seeing more of her. Her character, her story, and her place in the world drew me in, and it feels there's still a lot more to discover.

Re: Bad guy dos and donts

I think the most important question you need to ask when designing an 'evil' character is, "Why will people want to interact with me?"

If you can't come up with a convincing answer to that question, the character is unlikely to be thought of as a good villain.

Re: The Government of Troll's Bane

I assure you that my quill is not guided by malice towards the council. I have no dissatisfaction with the individuals currently holding titles. That being said, this action is a precedent that can not be set. A precedent can not be set that allows the acting council to determine when elections are ...

Re: Pssst...interested in the VBU?

Cool screenshot! I'm sure this has been brought up before, but in the interest of effective communication, I'll bring it up again. Yes, it is a reasonably large amount of work to type up a full NPC, but I don't think that's the major obstacle in creating NPCs. While there is ample documentation on t...

Re: Skill limit

Whoa, when did everyone start spewing poison over this? I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that everyone is well aware that the design stage of the VBU is well past, or else they wouldn't be so eagerly awaiting it. On the other hand, I don't expect the VBU will be the final update Illarion sees, so why ...

Re: Skill limit

While I agree that making skill gain more rapid would make certain aspects of the game more dynamic, I think there are disbenefits to consider as well. If skill gain is quick enough for everyone to take advantage of the full range of skills, variability between characters is harmed. Every smith is a...

Item Quality

Does perception affect perceived item quality in any way? Is my character seeing the true quality/wear of an item when I view it, or a rough approximation of what it really is? Will different characters see an item as having different levels of quality/wear?

If any attribute relates to charisma, it would be willpower. As far as temporary jobs go, try anything that doesn't require you to produce high-level goods to make a profit (NOT blacksmithing, tailory, or goldsmithing). Consider something where quality isn't so important, like farming, collecting he...

I think the primarily difficulty with the whole magic system is that the vision is to keep it extraordinary, unlike all the other skills. Regretfully, I have to say I'm behind that idea, that magic shouldn't be something that's widespread and frankly, banal. Unfortunately, at the moment the only way...

This is probably going to be pretty unpopular, if anyone bothers to read it, but I think mages should be a 'support' class, rather than a 'combat' class. Rather than trying to have fighters and mages have the same offensive capabilities, they should have different areas of expertise. All fighters re...

That's a terrible analogy. Movies don't rely on the interaction of viewers for their appeal (Except Snakes on a Plane and the Rocky Horror Picture Show).
