Making priests great again! At least slightly more enjoyable with two changes

Figured that I will take the two viable ideas from there and put them as separate suggestion. So my suggestion is to allow priests to weight in on other people plots for added success chance/level of success/lowered costs etc. In few words, we could look at it as that the priest provides a blessing ...

Re: Individual Piety

I can't count that to that high how many times the order was attacked in places where such attack should be borderline unthinkable - like the inquisitor's office in the cathedral or middle of town hall etc. And that absolutely is part of the problem, that order has none of the advantages, they are n...

Re: Individual Piety

People used to play plenty of priests. We had the preach command for piety then, but it was basically a non-issue. So if this isn't the reason people stopped, what is? Speaking as someone who has played quite a few high-ranking Orderites, I think I know a few reasons. One, being a GL is miserable w...

Re: Individual Piety

I personally don't like that either, as this is still a situation where you force someone into a scene more for benefits than the RP coming out of it, just that if you ignore it the loss is not as severe and is smaller PITA to maintain. But what I would love this idea for is a machine fueling the he...

Re: Individual Piety

And yes, of course, that this is my opinion (or more precisely observation), that is what we do on here - exchange opinions. I urge you to apply a priest and gauge how many people are willing to go for priestly RP, and for how long without being forced by code to do so. Then it won't be just an opi...

Re: Individual Piety

So your solution to the problem you ask to introduce is to give people the option to be atheists (high unthematic IMO, but you elected to not respond to that part), but not roleplay the atheism in fear of the order. That... just seems to be circular logic to me. I think we all know that there have ...

Re: Individual Piety

That's the problem with most upkeep coded systems - they require meticulous balance to not simply create another chore which you do for the sake of the coded benefit, not because it creates RP. And I don't think that those changes would help, because once you take the code away - you only have RP h...

Re: Individual Piety

All I have to say on this is much like Puciek said, there used to be a coded piety, but it was removed because everyone used it but never rped it. Alot of these suggested commands, quite frankly too many in my opinion, go the same route.Type in the command and get a bonus to rpxp, no reason to actu...

Re: Individual Piety

- Atheism I don't think should belong, as that would be unthematic. We live in a world where we have Orkin woods, the sultanate and regular mages activity and never ending Order indoctrination; how can someone not believe in a higher being? You could be sceptical about the church, but I am no so su...

Re: Individual Piety

Couple things to note: - There used to be coded piety years ago which, when high, provided some level of protection from magical attacks. It was removed because everyone was simply keeping it at high without any actual boost to Order rp. - Mages can also be davites. Just because we call them as here...
