Re: DISCUSSION: Hypocricy in garb vs armor

I was thinking of putting a fir rim around the lip at the bottom and a chainmail piece in the back to hang down. The fur will disguise the shape I believe, making it a round topped helm with fur trim. If that doesn't work I suppose I could hammer the thing into a slightly different shape at the bott...

Re: DISCUSSION: Hypocricy in garb vs armor

This is as good an excuse as any to get off my ass and mod my WW II helmet like I've been wanting to. They can be made to look good, I'm sure of it, and I've had the inclination to fix mine up but always find something else I should be doing instead.

Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

Here's an idea I've kicked around in my head for a day after reading this. Do with it what you will, I know it's flawed but maybe someone can refine it to something workable. To enhance a mage's versatility and make use of the various protection spells we currently have, how about instead of specifi...

Re: Replacement system for land map

I've used that program too. Super easy, you can zoom in and actually create those cities if you wish (no need for Darkon's landmap that i can see though), and there's a free version although I don't remember if you can save or whatnot. I haven't had any luck starting my own Darkon off-shoot up here ...

Re: june 30th event at burtonsville lost and found

Middle one is mine, lost it last campout after I loaned it out Friday night and haven't seen it since. Can you get it to someone in Kindred and let them know it belongs to Ogre? I moved to Pittsburgh and only can make it down a couple times a year.

Re: Open Discussion: Furs

I don't know about all of it, but most of the synth fur I've seen in fabric shops has a cloth backing. Real fur is backed by what is was when it was alive... animal skin.

I could be wrong, but in my experience with the faux stuff it's obvious when you turn it around.

Re: Campout LnF

Did anyone pick up a white sword, no stab tip, huge white quillions, and a super wide pommel? I loaned it out Friday night and when Saturday morning rolled around no one could locate it. We never did find it after tearing down camp either. No idea where it was lost.

Re: Stance on Hay Bail Walls

Maybe it wouldn't have to be a requirement to have physical walls (leave rope as an option) but modify the abilities that would be affected by them to make them feasible at least. As written, the rules don't allow them unless there's a huge gap at the bottom.

Besides what Havoc said, it's stupid for us to be bound by a rule we invented AFTER rope walls, simply to ACCOUNT for rope walls. Make it so that Thieves can clamber over the bales. Done. Easy. I'm not saying things can't be changed, just pointing out that physical walls interfere with the way the ...

Last time I saw that would be at the O.R.C.S. campout; last year? 2010?, Nurgle captured, bond and then tortured a goblin NPC for information. Nurgle did that too?

One big issue is on page 27 of the rulebook: "There must be an open area of no less than 3’ at the base of 90% of the fortification to allow for the use of the ‘Climb Walls’ Thief skill (see Chapter Five: Types of Characters)." At most, 10% of your walls could be hay bails, the other 90% b...

Re: Get rid of res potions

I don't know about the use on the same day only thing. I know I sure wouldn't bother making any. It costs me 10 spell points to make a rez potion or 2 to cast it (3 to prayer touch and insta-cast it). I'm not going to lose the 10 points just to make a potion if it's only good for the day.

Re: Removing Alignment requirement from Monks

I've actually used the lawful requirement to create the concept for my monk character, but no big deal if it's removed I suppose. The D&D alignments worked there because there could be consequences for breaking them, in Darkon we have no such consequence so alignment is meaningless.
