Re: Newbie Feedback

Why split the kill XP up by damage done? D&D ships with group XP distribution rules that work just fine. I won't pretend to know all the reasons, but I suspect this was originally intended to curb powerleveling. That said, it's a personal pet peeve of mine, as well. As a player who primarily plays ...

Re: Spell: Extended duration for Polymorph

I tend to agree with the belief that the duration's fine, but is there perhaps a middle ground? What if non-combat forms are increased in longevity? If I want to polymorph into a rat, chances are I'm not doing it for the +hitroll bonus. I don't see it being exceptionally imbalanced. Maybe we can eve...

Re: Newbie Feedback

Lyndin, we are extremely fortunate for you and others who came before you who provided such insights. Many of us have been here for so very long that we forget some of the smallest things that plague new players. For what it's worth, I agree with you. I feel confident I'm not the only one, either.

I really like what Areia did by explaining why. I'm going to update my list and explain why I miss the characters on my list.

Re: Miss List

Not an exhaustive list, but I'll start with a few that come to mind that I miss: Akordia - I wouldn't even be here if not for her player; she brought me to the game. There's a kindness to Bonnie's characters that bled in from her personality and they were always enjoyable to be around. Krunk (I thin...

Miss List

One of the best things about FK is the community. The characters are great, but it's the players that make them shine. Ever have great roleplays with specific characters, but the character logged off over a year ago (or more)? Maybe the player even lurks the forums, but hasn't played the game (or th...

Re: Selling crafted mithril items

I am not aware of anything in canon about dwarves refusing to trade mithril to nondwarven communities at large. That being said, there are numerous instances where dwarves to this day refuse to trade with certain groups; "a dwarf never forgets his grudges" says the Dwarves Deep (TSR 9300) supplemen...

Re: Standardize the harvesting of food from plants?

That's a very good idea, Gwain. I have to question whether or not all the "fake" commands are necessary, though. I remember when I first started off on the MUD there were so many non-standard commands (commands not in the "commands" list) it was really daunting. I can't imagine being new again, but ...

Your first post and I'm pretty sure the answer is: it doesn't work.

Re: Newbie Temple Weapons Trainer

This is great feedback. Obviously, I can't speak for the staff, but I think feedback like this is absolutely invaluable regardless of some of us who know where every trainer in the game is.

Thank you for bringing this up. :)

Re: Crafting Anew

Speaking of costs of forging, I've noticed that even selling full plate armors barely makes up the cost of actually forging them (not including all the materials wasted). It's really disheartening to craft your armor and then see this: <100%hp 100m 98%mv> value cuir Jonathon tells you 'I'd give you ...

Re: Evil Halfling Priests

One thing important to remember is that PCs are not normal members of their race. They're different and better. There's a reason why they, almost always, have higher statistic distribution than the mundane of their race. While every Drow may be seen as evil, there was a Drizzt. While Dwarves are see...

Conversations in Quest Areas

Is there any chance that we can avoid saying 'yes' or 'no' in the middle of sentences to cause quests to start or fail? I'm sure it's happened to others, but it's something that really annoys me because you can't just carry on a normal conversation without risking breaking quests. Here's an example:...
