Can I hunger kill you?

So I have been having trouble with my connection and getting the client running. Lots of getting kicked out etc etc
I logged out rather suddenly due to my connection going down and when I logged back in some hours late, I was dead. Not really so much an issue, just curious how it happened. Nothing in my log as of course I was offline.
Anyway, was it hunger?

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

If there was a lag when you logged out, it could have been your char was attacked during that time unknown, hunger if the bar totally empty used to also ghost you though I am not sure it does anymore. Do you see no yellow on the middle bar?

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

I doubt I was killed as it was right in town, well if I was someone made a very quick PK. However I am pretty sure I had no yellow bar, lots of notices about the characters stomach.
However yes strange that it would happen exactly at the time I got disconnected.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

I am not sure but think for the present, just to be safe have another char there to hand yours some food before you leave the cross. :D Are you in game now?

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

Not at the moment, still struggling with connection issues, which I do not think have anything to do with Illarion.
I did log of right by Eliza though so, how does one buy food from her?

If you go right outside Eliza's can pick the apples from the trees.btw, there are always flies in town...if you have a totally untrained char they could have attacked you while frozen.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

I think Pendar could still kill a fly, but not a problem. Next time I manage to get in game I will get some apples.
Just out of interest how does one trade with vendors? I have flat out forgotten.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

Aye, flies are the likely 'killer' in this case.
Not too powerful to ghost you, but powerful enough to drain your hunger bar over a prolonged attack, resulting in you being ghosted.
I'd say check your logs, if you're still logged in during that, perhaps the log was still being updated? If so, you'll find out if anything other than pure hunger did you in.
--EDIT
To trade with NPC, ask, what do you buy/sell, then a list will come up with the goods that they deal with. If you ask how much does -insert item - cost, the NPC should tell you.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

All NPC's you can say "help". You can also say "what do you sell/buy?" This is a little old but relatively a good link http://illarion.org/community/wiki/index.php/Newbies

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

btw, your connection is the pits :lol: , perhaps post an error log and see if someone can help? Also set your options for graphics to the lowest if haven't done.

This is NOT recommended.

Indeed, hunger can kill you after a long time of stomach rumbling. Sometimes after a disconnect your character stays ingame for a while because the client cannot send the "log the character out" message anymore. This will be fixed with the very big update.

Another possibiliy is that your character was slain by either another player (unlikely) or a wandering monster. This can be checked if you inquire.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

it was probably the flies....I noticed when my hunger was low, I seemed to take more damage from them. Where as once I was not hungry they did no damage at all, is this logical?
Yeah connection is next issue, to work through going to open a new thread in support.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

I wonder if having graphics set to lowest was not part of the problem, it seems improved now. If I keep getting troubles I will post in a new thread.

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

Actually, the flies do not cause less damage but you regenerate faster with more food in your stomach.

PS: You can cook delicious dishes with a cooking spoon and if you stick to delicious food instead of apples you can even get a bonus on constitution!

Re: Can I hunger kill you?

well changing the graphics from lowest to normal seems to have made the client more stable, I was only in game for twenty minutes but it was crash free, more testing required.
I'll get down to some chef-ing soon ;)
