Re: Fermented Milk Beverages

I believe this item already exists (and is sold IC) by NPCs so it might just need a craft (maybe in Brewing?).

Re: craftable smoke bomb item

But.. I mean, what about a dust bomb? Throwing flour or sawdust at a target temporarily reduces their %hit chance if it successfully hits them?
We have Sneezing Powder and Strangledust for consideration of use.

Re: Steal & Stealth

As far as trinkets go ... one option would be for an NPC in the Brotherhood HQ that takes said items and gives a set amount for them.

(Maybe the amount offered could vary by Metrics somehow?) As loathe as I am to suggest that poor Tristan gets robbed all the time. :lol:

Re: Steal & Stealth

Law/order players are stuck basically harassing people over petty misdemeanors, which makes the grand epic crime drama real hard, if not impossible, and I feel contributes to petty OOC vibes. Sometimes, I feel a major contributor to this is the ephemeral pool of knowing -any- crime and -any- magica...

Re: Steal & Stealth

Peek only captures newbies, I feel.
It honestly doesn't. You'd be surprised what people (even long term certainly 'aware' people) will totally forget and randomly walk around with from time to time.

Re: Mage v Knight Balance, Revisited

Please explain to me how your response has anything to do with an OOC mage channel being available in chargen? Because I am not seeing the relationship. One "downside" of the mage channel as it is presently setup is that the players who might be best apt to help answer said questions have to be on ...

Re: Mage v Knight Balance, Revisited

Also, latent mages need way more love. From what I understand, they get a single message coming out of cyan, and that's it. No further direction, advice, RP hooks, nada. It was mentioned at the time that the latent coding changed ... that it is more awkward now that latent mages (to my understandin...

Re: Mage v Knight Balance, Revisited

Being an outed mage has put me in a fun position - I've had numerous new players approach me OOC for advice on "Okay what? Element? Moon? Astral Avatar? Rituals?? What does any of this mean??!" Which I was thrilled to be able to assist with. This is literally the core reason for the discussion on b...

Re: Mage v Knight Balance, Revisited

There are other reasons for the dearth of mage RP of late and I hope to see them discussed as well. I'll start here. First we'd have to identify what we mean by 'mage RP' ... there are at any given time I think a healthy portion of the playerbase that is indeed, mages. Depending on activity waxing ...
