Helpfile Changes!

Post by Trillarel » Sat Sep 22, 2012 6:22 pm

Vielen Dank!

Thanks a lot. One more nitpick - as I am thinking of creating a half-orc, I'd like to know what bonuses the half-orcs get in FK. So could we get racial bonuses (pluses to attributes, darkvision/low-light vision) listed in the relevant help pages.

Personally, I'm opposed to that idea. I think that races -should- be chosen for RP reasons, not statistical ones. I know that little enough of that happens, but I personally don't see any reason to make it 'easier' for the converse to be true.

I split this because it is a recommendation, not a helpfile change.

The information on races is available in the character creation process by typing info on the respective race's page.

I don't mind Trillarel's suggestion. I think it'd be a nice reference to have. I don't think knowing something or having it readily available makes you any less a roleplayer. Having the statistics readily available makes an informed player. The change that made statistics in score sheet finally available to players didn't suddenly make everyone horrible roleplayers.

More than anything, it's a convenience. Especially for people who hate having to search online (if they don't already own the books) to find the bonuses a player gets.
