Hammers' Homecoming: A Call to Mithral Halls

TO ALL WAY-FARING DWARVES, BE YE BORN OF THE HALLS OR ABROAD: The clergy of the Soul Forger has seen it fit to bring home our ranging brothers and sisters to assess and increase our community's strength. As such, any dwarf who has access to the Halls--or is pledged to a God that is right and just--...

Proposed Changes to Rangers

Here are collected my proposals for ranger changes that would allow them access to a competitive, fighter/paladin-equivalent build with highly specific ranger flavor. There are likely flaws in this, and the body itself is far older than this preamble, so if LITERALLY ANYONE wants to critique it, fee...

Re: PvP Questions?

I think the OOC statement should stay in effect. However, it shouldn't require someone to reply. Obviously there would be varying situations, but I think it should serve as a warning of, "You're putting yourself in danger. You have a few minutes before I attack. Extricate yourself from the situatio...

Re: General Questions

I can recall a fight with Harroghty in which Cahir had a surprisingly low amount of 5th attacks for GM, and investigated it afterwards. This led me to believe there may be a correlation between missing 4th and 5th failing to fire, but I never could find enemies that Cahir missed often + survived lon...

Re: Investment

My longest investment in a character is now Cahir, surpassing even this forum handle's namesake. The bulk of his time (probably 1500+ hours of his 2500) was spent during two years, a few years back now. During that time, Cahir progressed mechanically at a pretty average pace with a regular companion...

Re: General Questions

I've seen PC items made of mithril, silver, and adamantine--leaving the 4th special material up for grabs. Is cold iron a product that PCs can actually make? The RMI table only ever seems to drop longswords, but this material does have practical applications in game.

Re: Pet Peeve - Idle Players

Man, what a read! I'm wondering what this adds to the already very clear message that Mele has sent and why you felt the need to personally elaborate on it from the capacity of a PC Member. So far as I know, we are not enforcers or adjudicators in any capacity, but if I'm missing something here, I'd...

Court of Law Kickback

The interaction with the guards of the Court of Law end up kicking characters "removed" deeper into the temple, resulting in a potentially fatal loop.

Okay, I'll repost it for bards specifically: 18 14 18 10 10 18 / WF:Polearms / Power Attack / Still / Heighten/ Extend / 3 choice. 2d4+6STR+3HSTR+6PA+2Weap+2Spell = 24 average damage x3 for 72 DPR (x4 in crit rounds, for 288).

Re: Two weapon fighting and the bard class

I decided to redact myself--don't worry, it wasn't anything mean, I just don't feel comfortable posting in-depth guides to character creation on the forums. Regardless, the math does not support the claim that dual wield bards or paladins are superior to their 2H counterparts or dual wield fighters ...

Re: Two weapon fighting and the bard class

I argue exactly the opposite. We should approve this, as it exists in d20srd where ANYONE can dual wield, and let people find out how trash it would be for themselves--and paladins too, even, because being so MAD you can't afford 19 DEX definitely isn't a real thing. LOL

The new grates/gates/meshes in the WD sewers seem to conform to this. They can be bashed or c 'knock' open, but cannot be picked.

Unpickable Doors -- Feature or Oversight?

Hi there. During my recent adventures on a thief, I have come across several doors that are not pickable. This isn't the typical failure result repeated; after one or two attempts, it seems a successful attempt instead results in "This door is not pickable." I know in the past builders sometimes did...

Just wanted to point out that a common alternative to flooding the game with OOC messages but still being able to communicate with the community exists.

Re: Faith withdraw

I'm with Thurgen on this one at heart, but I also understand the massive amount of time some people put into their RP's to groom new brothers and sisters in faith--hopping around can feel like a slap in the face of the IC and OOC effort. However, that is also a largely inconsistent experience depend...

Wanted to chime in and say this was a very fun and entertaining outing. The mood and uncanny peacefulness of a Realms' wide villain shindig was hilarious, but also chilling at times. Definitely a unique event, and glad to have made it.

Re: General Questions

Do aligned weapons (and DR/alignment) currently exist in the game? I've been looking into DR since maining a rogue (as we rarely have the raw damage to break through them, especially vs. undead) and this one's had me curious.

Re: Improved Disarm

I believe it functions like 2nd-5th attack skills and/or backstab/circle: the skill itself determines if it happens, the roll determines if it succeeds. This is just an educated guess, though. On my rogue I do not currently have disarm trained and have never seen an auto/counter disarm fire, leading...
