Re: Brigandine head armor

I believe this is do to the signed cookie accords of 2015. The ancient god of the Snickerdoodles forbade the use of any head-wear that made use of the brigandine style. Perhaps because it mirrored the image of the God of Healthy Bran Cookies whos scaled leathery visage is loathed throughout the lan...

Re: Necks are too tough

I would argue that the chest should be more vulnerable, considering it houses your vital organs. This is the whole reason breast plates existed (and modern day ballistic armor, which in its most basic iterations only covers the area from the diaphragm/bottom of the ribcage to the bottom of the colla...

Re: Stomach growling audible for other characters

Also, please transmit bathroom sounds to the room outside of water closets.

"A sound reaches your ears emitted from the water closet to the north. *SplOosH!*
You hear someone whisper, 'That was a gift.'
You mumble, 'That's a dead kid.'"

Re: Sound Off!

I'm a healthcare provider, and our local and state health departments have all but denied our clinic access to testing for my patients, even though commercial laboratory testing is available in our area. This has basically been the conversation: "Well, you can't test anyone without our permission." ...

If you must get your fix, however, you can always search for the historical record of the second-ever telling of the Legend of the Frigid Cuirass on this very BBS. A bit primitive, yes, bu...

Re: Making arrowheads out of softer metals

In the context of consistency between crafting systems your suggestion makes sense, but you framed your initial argument within the context of realism. The metal in the arrow is small and the large part of the force is born by the shaft, not the head, so it would be a totally realistic change I also...

Re: Making arrowheads out of softer metals

What's the purpose? Aesthetics? You're not really saying WHY you want this feature, other than "because I can make other stuff out of it" (paraphrase), which is not a very arguable point considering that there would be no functional difference. I would say the opposite; it's not realistic to have ar...

Re: Monks under review

I thought it was obvious I was speaking in hyperbole and generalizing. My character also is not overly combat focused. The point was that people gravitate towards characters that they subjectively view as more desirable to play, and less people are attracted to the healer class than most others. I f...

Re: Monks under review

The numbers show that people don't want to play monks I think this is the core of the issue, and that this can be extrapolated to many other games of various genres: The majority of players generally have less interest in playing healer characters than other arguably more interesting or subjectivel...

Re: Monks under review

Fun fact: My first character accidentally became a monk. If I logged onto him today, it would be like starting a new character (who happens to already be a monk). You can basically thank him for the existence of Jaster. I don't play him, because I don't like to play healers. I'm a "healer" in real l...

Re: Talking in emotes, without abuse

I always did prefer the simplicity of using hard coded speech and socials, to me that has seemed to flow better as opposed to waiting on someone to type out an elaborate emote.

Re: Alt conflict?

I would say no, if Dimon is not your alt.

The same used to happen with all of Kiyaani's alts flirting with Jaster. They weren't flirting with each other, so no conflict.
