Re: Applications for bards

So basically Strawberry Song can be joined without token, but one should submit the application with the performance regardless, right?

And preferably before joining?

Applications for bards

Asking after some people raised the matter on ask. How do applications for bards work right now? Is it fine to guild at Strawberry Song without app? Can one guild there and submit the app later? Are apps required only for the performance tokens or should they be submitted regardless? And also: is 15...

Re: Max level for ECL races

I have focused so far on the mechanical gripes, some of which are apparent and pretty objective, see orc vs. halforc from above, but this doesn't mean there are not other issues. It is a very complex issue and while I feel ECL, either by itself or because it is higher than what would be fair (take t...

Re: Max level for ECL races

The point, to expand upon my exasperation above, is that you would do better to give a substantive, practical solution without the additional and very debatable theories about the game's overall direction. That's a different conversation than ECL and you muddy the waters of your current purpose by ...

Re: Max level for ECL races

NWN is a totally different game and not a good comparison because most online gamers play MMORPGS and very few play MUDs. This is a subjective statement. :P Actually I studied that community for a while, and even if not so similar to MUDs in general, it is pretty close, in many respects, to the typ...

Re: Max level for ECL races

You have a lot of assumptions here that undermine your case. So the idea that ECL keeps low the numbers of these races falls apart. Moreover the idea that numbers of these races need to be kept low is also wrong. We could actually use more orcs, deep gnomes and drow, and it is currently pretty bad ...

Re: Max level for ECL races

What you say is false, Alitar, because it simply does not match the evidence in game. The strongest ECL races, aasimar and tiefling, as well as drow, offer comparable mechanical benefits to a shield dwarf for most character builds. Yet we see way more elves, humans and other "weaker" races than shie...

Re: Druids

- Shapechange seems not to have a trainer for Malarites. That said I had difficulty to find the following spells on my Chauntean druid: - air walk (I think there is one suitable teacher but it is kind of hard to reach, so one more would not hurt) - ice storm - drown These spells are actually easily ...

Re: Druids

Oh, for the record, summon monster 1 and monster summon are not even in the druid spell list. I think this is due to the fact in tabletop druids use a different series of spells, summon nature's ally, but in practice here this means they cannot really summon anything but an elemental. We could consi...

Re: Possible Poetry Battle?

I would like it to be opened to any class and not just to bards, personally.

And yeah, I would really love it a lot. :)

Maybe the winners could have their songs published?

As for the format I like any type, both improvisation and works prepared in advance.

Re: Druids

I had mande the original posts focusing mostly on skill lists, since they are the easiest mechanical solutions, as they can be altered via soft code, as it was the case for the (sadly broken) brew and scribe for bards or the lowering of the level rescue can be trained at for fighters. For what conce...

Re: Druids

If this is the case, I can understand why it was chosen to deny Chaunteans track and slice. Wild Chaunteans could always app to have one or both of those skills added to their skill list, though. A 100 glory tax to have a Chauntean druid work the same as other druids ? It is unfair to say the least...

Re: Druids

I don't believe that any Druids get Spontaneous casting. I am sorry (well happy) to break it out to you, but good and neutral aligned druids can spontaneously cast cure spells in a similar way clerics of the same alignments do. :P 1) Malarite druids have no problems to learn spells from Umberlant o...

Re: Druids

Thanks, Yemin. :) The first and the second are objectively minor, as druids already get find the path and mass eagles. Polymorph is quality of life, but in essence, it is a spell they already have. Spontaneous casting for Malarites may be the most aggressive proposal of the four, but it is also the ...

Re: Elminster Open Discussion

Marital comes from maritus , which in Latin meant husband and has cognates in the modern Romance languages (Fr mari , It marito , Sp marido ). Martial on the other hand is related to Mars the god of war of the Romans. So it is a curious, and in this case amusing, coincidence, but the words are not s...
