Proposal: Replace existing non-magical shield rules with the following text: "Shields in Darkon are the most effective protection against physical attacks and will block any attack from all non-siege weapons. A participant may only use one shield. There may be no shield spikes or other 'hard' d...

Re: Monk Unarmed Ability Change

I like the unarmed ability for monks, but I disagree with the light wound taken when a monk drops his bar. Would this effected arm still be protected by the monks skin or will a follow up strike to the lightly wounded arm cause a mortal wound? If it is still protected by the skin, this could be a po...

Hello and welcome. 1. By all means show up. Adventure day usually means that there is an adventure and certain spells/abilities are available. 2. No limitations on race that I am aware of. 3. Adventure day is a day event. There will be a special battle or something. 4. For your first event just brin...

Re: DISCUSSION: Hypocricy in garb vs armor

I did just that to mine a long time ago. Looked better than a standard WW2 helm, but not nearly as sharp as the nasal helm I picked up a year or so ago.

Re: Changing Gates, bringing back rams.

You've got a point. This is probably something that is better proposed if AOE is removed from fireball. I'll keep it on the back burner until that happens.

Re: Changing Gates, bringing back rams.

what about fire balls and lightning bolts? Do they no longer damage gates in your proposal? Not really discussed in your proposal. They may not be the target of magical spells or abilities of any kind. Was trying to make it so Gates can only be destroyed by seige equipment and not by fireball. How ...

Changing Gates, bringing back rams.

I am thinking of the following: Gates - Constructed from Wood or Iron with magical "Dispel Magic" runes. They may not be the target of magical spells or abilities of any kind. Gates can be destroyed by 4 strikes from a Ram. Gates may be destroyed by 4 shots from a siege weapon. If a gate i...

Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

One thing I keep seeing that I am confused about is people wanting to keep AOE over multi ball. If I read the proposal correctly, the multi ball gives a mage the ability to instantly remove up to three players from a battle regardless of their armour level. I see this as extremely powerful without r...

Re: The Free Peoples of WAAAGH

Thrush,
Does a raid into the orc lands promise much loot? If so I am always happy to participate in a small incursion. I don't have all the 50 gold for the expedition cost, but I'll of course give you the appropriate share of any plunder.

Re: Physical Coin transactions proposal

If you force people to go through all this, it will become a hindrance and people aren't going to want to bother transferring the 100 or so gold to hire mercs. This shouldn't inhibit anyone from paying the mercs the day of the fight. I would imagine that mercs carrying 100 or so gold in payment wil...

Old countries already have money, land, and players. A new country has no chance if they can't even BUILD STUFF ON THE LAND THEY HAVE because XX country decides to attack them while they are on their way to the banker.

Noctis had a good point about the coin marshal not really being an in character entity.
