Re: The Search for Maelstrom- 1/12/14

In the north? In the Ice Cream Wastes near the North Hold?

Oh, dear...

This is worse than I originally imagined.

My services are available for those of you who do not have a wizard in your country. I'm looking directly at you, Minathlan. For a mere five gold I will accompany you with my spell book, which will allow me to throw fire, ice and lightning, as well as decipher ancient, unreadable scripts and learn t...

Re: Physical Coin transactions proposal

1. Country coffers can only be used for land actions 2. ... 3. substituted. So if I read the comments correctly, the biggest dislike here is the use of both the banker of darkon and the need to physically transfer money for in country uses (Building ships, castles, etc. etc.) That in mind: 1.

Re: Physical Coin transactions proposal

No. No way.

1. Puts small countries at a great disadvantage.

2. Makes zero sense. Your treasury is in your castle. Why would you need to transfer the money to build a ship or structure to anywhere other than within your own borders where you have armies to defend the land?

Re: Eliphas fighter/cav proposal discussion.

Cosign.

I'd also let the other black-using classes just go ahead and have all of the black weapons now since shield break is limited to classes. But maybe make that proposal after this one succeeds (well, hopefully it does).

Re: The Rogue 2.0

Perhaps we should make consequences for assassinations. As in, actually codify some rules on trials and executions. Then being an assassin that can kill for 24 hours at least puts you at greater danger yourself.

Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

Second: The multiple spell balls vs AOE is an age old debate. One that can be decided by Senate when and if this gets there. I have no issues going either way on that one. The biggest problem I've always seen with this is that it negates fire protection capes. Even if you have to throw them at the ...

Funny story here, but Darkon (the Facebook group) is an official Facebook group. It is controlled by members of the IT committee and the BoD.

Which means it is, in fact, a moderated forum BY Darkon.

His post seems to be about a different issue, anyway. It is quoting text about shield edging.

Missile weapons are different, Iltzafein, because: 1. You get an effectively limitless number of spear stabs. 2. You can apply a lot more force with a stab to push through/past weapons. 3. The rules are designed around blocking melee weapons with melee weapons and shields, and are generally balance...

Too much reality in your post, shroom. Think about other reasons people hold swords in front of them in this game... To block spears. Would holding two swords in front of you help you block an actual spear? There's a good chance that would be "NO", and even if it were "YES", you ...

The general rule for races in Darkon is simple: A player may RP as any normal, or fantasy race, that could fit in a late Roman to Medieval/Feudal period.

I think it's definitely acceptable to play anything before the Roman era, too.
