    [Your View] Freebuild

    free build hasn't been proven to show any issues so far this map, i think the real issue lies in the time it takes to travel and the tendency for """nations""" to build oversized cities and then get pissy when their playerbase doesn't fill them. give free build some more time and pay more attention to the nations that preach that free build is the sole aspect at fault before taking action.

    Your View: Magic Part 2

    Do you like the current teaching system? I think the teaching system is fine at the moment, the only problem I have lies in how TAs are given to incapable people. It might be better to raise the standard and survey the RP of potential teachers before giving them the ability to teach other people since it's pretty evident that bad teachers lead to hordes of bad students that unknowingly PG or RP their magic wrong, it's like a butterfly effect with bad magic RP. I'm not suggesting we return to pages on pages of writing for an application, but raising the bar a bit and maybe monitoring the first few lessons these teachers give out. Do you believe that measures should be taken to ensure students get taught correctly? Yes. I explained this with my answer to the other question. Do you believe that magic accessibility is fine how it is now? Certain magic archetypes like voidal and (some) deific are accessible enough to not be an issue, but a lot of the dark arts and locked voidal magic are held in cliques, and while that's understandable, it's really boring to see an interesting magic go to waste at the hands of apathetic and generally exclusive elitists. Magics like this or some other dead magics need to be made more accessible to the players. With these magics, it really is just suck the current teachers' dicks or hope your friend slips into their clique and gets the ability to teach it to you. Do you like the addition of magical artifacts? No. The magical artifacts, mainly combative ones, ruin any balance in fights involving experienced mages who hoard these items, which mainly brought about the whole "let's have guns!" Their whole purpose is to bend lore in someway to produce interesting RP, but are only ever used to serve their creator to one-up people in fights and become more powerful, it's ridiculous with how it makes magic seem and is practically exploited by most people. I'd rather magical artifacts be kept to being given in events or only made for the purpose of things like float-y towers. Combat enchantments should be left to the boundaries of regular transmutation, and even then, some of those are questionable. Do you believe the system should be aimed at stopping an over-saturation of magics that fill a similar niche? I really don't think there's a big problem with this, I think the problem lies in how lore can lack easily comprehensible guidelines for those who don't know much about magic. Even with so much magic, if it's kept simple and a guide is made by the MT or the lore holder that can explain what it can do, can't do, etc. without making it 500 pages long, I think everything would be better off. I don't really mind magics being similar or having similar goals, they just shouldn't be direct clones of each other and if it's interesting enough, it should be fine. Ambduscias explains it pretty well, in my opinion. Do you believe the system should be aimed at preventing min-maxing/a play to win mentality? Yes, of course it should be. Currently, magic and MaRTs (is that how it's capitalized?) are just an arms race to assert roleplay power over another, and while that could be a fun character goal, it should be nothing to pursue with OOC intentions. Magic slots need to be better limited and the capabilities of some need to be better defined. There should be no "end-game" creatures or magics that take up no slots, all of that only feeds into the min-maxing mentality and ruins the enjoyment of everyone else. One thing I'd really like to see is magic slots being reduced, 5 magics is a lot to handle and lets people become a master of all trades, since the whole tier thing is never enforced, 2-3 magic slots total would be nice to see, those including any feats and artificery magic. Sorry if any of this is messy or jumbled, let me know and I can clarify anything. :'>
  12. I really don't want to see guns on LoTC, since as Oblivion said above, it'll effectively render armor useless and spur others into making LoTC into an arms race, which is already bad enough with how magic and the magical artifact application system is. Instead of adding guns or making any advancements with non-magical weaponry, transfiguration and more specifically MARTs (I think that's what they're called) need to be better regulated and limited. Currently, mages with access to transfiguration and other magics (cognatism, etc.) just **** out these slightly lore-bending artifacts all day to make themselves and their clique more powerful, and to put it simply, it's really gross and much more worse than guns would be. These artifacts need limits in how far they're able to go and how many can be produced and it'd be really nice if they were more aimed at non-combative magical advancements, like floating towers and that kinda stuff. With limits added to the MART system and transfiguration as a whole, and instead encouraging the actual casting of magic in combat (instead of pulls out laser weapon that instantly kills you!!!) magic roleplay would be made more enjoyable, and probably more tolerable for non-magic users. (sorry if this is off-topic, I just think that the root of the desire for guns comes from magic seemingly out-performing non-magical fighters and this problem would be better attacked at the root of it, not by adding more onto it.)

      sure, yoppl and maly violated the lore. my argument is that the lore is so tenuous that nobody would have even noticed had flamboyant not made a huge deal out of it. not to mention that the pistol duel was part of a genuinely interesting storyline that did not include magical starcraft units. 

      I have all the reason to believe that you wouldn't want the rules to be sacrosanct if your friend got banned for ERP. LoTC has always let rules take the backseat to allow interesting things to happen. when it doesn't, there's usually an ulterior motive that is not just "well the rules say this."

      @char-char~ i dont really understand the starcraft stuff but even if it is used as a tool for an interesting plot or w/e (even tho theres some many things that actually abide lore that could be used), theres always the possibility of it spreading into normal rp and becoming a way to pg and all that, ruining other rp experiences, kinda like how the magic guns spiralled out of control. even if the rp is isolated, there likely wouldve been backlash in a similar fashion.
