Re: ESP Q&A

Hi, It is mentioned elsewhere, but I believe the esp network specifically only works within the quarantine. The phrasing seems to suggest it is more than simply having a pendant; even owning a pendant without being in the appropriate regions will not grant access to the network. "I feel like at some...

Re: Words Breaking Words

Hi, IN an attempt to both re-rail the thread and have an answer to the slight derailing, it may help to understand this is not so much a thread about 'are mummers overpowered' as it is one about 'how and why mummers are overpowered'. Regardless of whether or not someone feels other aspects of the ga...

do elemancy staves and wands have runes?

Hi, Sorry for the specificity of the question, but are there any discernable markings on elemancy staves and wands which set them aside from regular wands or wooden rods? The shop descriptions state they are 'imbued', but the items themselves have no written description, so I was only wondering if t...

Re: arrow deflection and hurled weapons

Re: Skills, toys, and the dreaded metagaming

Hi,

Given the current somewhat more cvc driven nature of CLOK recently, I wanted to remind everyone about this helpful thread in an attempt to keep the game fun and interesting for everyone.

arrow deflection and hurled weapons

Hi! I am cluttering the forums with a suggestion again, but hopefully this one is not so long. Arrow deflection can slap away arrows and stones from bows and slings: it seems maybe feasible it could similarly deflect small thrown weapons, like knives of varying lethality, hurled stones, snowballs, d...

Re: The Dangers of Dying

That is very true, Maina. There is still opportunity for recklessness in the undying, particularly in the first suggestion for the skill gains penalty, but it is also lore that dying has a cost. The suggestion is that maybe that cost is not entirely in the riln, but also something to do with the sou...

Is an ability required to intercept ranged attacks at all? It's a very niche abilities ...
