  1. Artificial restrictions along the lines of 'black powder is bad, do not even try and go down that path' regardless of RP feasibility. Honestly, the fact that magitech has advanced to a psuedo-futuristic point, yet we cannot accept the development of gunpowder, is absurd.
  2. The issue is not with the development of magitech, but more with the artificial restrictions put on conventional technology.
  3. Honestly, artificial restrictions on technology are not an effective way to manage things. Telling people that guns are not technologically feasible will just lead to the development of alternatives that are just as bad. We've banned cannons and guns, and replaced them with 'rune cannons' and 'mana rifles'. I guess what I am trying to say is, if it looks like a dog, and barks like a dog... LoTC needs to take a good, long look at its tech level and develop something that is consistent all across the board. I personally am all for simple firearms, and considering we all ready have the capabilities to create black powder, I do not see why there is a ban in place. Perhaps add a gunsmithing equivalent as a MA or MArt, similar to Further Alchemy.

  6. Really heckin' dope. Quick question though: Does this magic conflict with lichdom?
  7. A figure draped in roughspun robes sits atop the rooftops of Old Veris. A single, skeletal hand reaches from the shroud, adjusting the brim of an absurdly large hat. "Rot and ruin..." the hobbit-shape curses under its breath, "It's incredible what a ghoul with a crossbow can accomplish..."
  8. MC Name: ForeverGinger Character's Name: Shamblebones Character's Age: Pretty heckin' old Character's Original Race (N/A if not applicable): Morghuul Transformed form: Lich Creator's MC Name: SaltyGoblin, Parkins, and Geoboy66 Creator's RP Name: Malineer, Gravelord Adremeich, and Gravelord Naruntah Briefly explain the lore behind this construct or creature: A lich is to the arcane as a darkstalker is to the blade. They are each a side of the same coin, cousins in their undeath. When a ghoul has consumed the soul-essence of seven descendants, they may be taken into this fold, to join the ranks of the greater undead. A ritual is undertaken by three necromancers, who utilize this soul essence to mend the soul-shadow of the ghoul, creating a greater soul-shadow. This creation is housed in a phylactery, a container for the soul; Should it be broken, the creature will embrace the long sleep upon their next passing. Liches lack the inhibitions of mortal man. They do not tire, they do not eat, they do not breathe as they did in life. Instead, they must set about harvesting the lifeforce of Descendants in order to keep their minds sharp and their skeletal frames strong. In order to continue their shambling existence, liches are gifted with a powerful tetherdrain, though not the crippling touchdrain that darkstalkers inherint. Yet, for all their strengths, these skeletal casters suffer from grave weaknesses. The sun burns away at their stored life, causing them to drape themselves in heavy robes to block out the rays. Clerical magic is their bane, causing pain the likes of which are never felt past death. Liches are fragile creatures, unlike their kin the darkstalker. It takes little effort to dispatch them, should it come to a martial encounter. Luckily, unlike the previous generation of undead mages, with the rise of third generation necromancy a lich no longer suffers from a slowed rate of learning when adopting new magic. A lich is able to ascend to a gravecaller, should they be found worthy by their necromantic masters. If they are gifted their phylactery, and a certain ritual is undergone, these skeletal magi are able to delve deeper into the nature of undeath, gaining the ability to learn necromancy. Should they wish to leave the arcane life behind and instead delve into martial matters, liches are able to take up the mantle of darkstalker, and vice versa, once every elven month with the aid of a necromancer learned in the Sacrament of Transference.

  9. While these creatures are functionally identical, they do fill their own specific niece. Paleknights are spectral warriors born from mysticism, while Dreadknights and Darkstalkers are based in blood magic and necromancy respectively. Seeing as most dark magics revolve around raising the dead as a means to an end, it makes sense that each sect would have their own variant of a greater dead; Something a little more competent that the average ghoul or ghost. Stepping away from defending dark creatures, the opinions expressed in this thread seem incredibly polarized. People are either complaining about a 24/7 spook parade, or bemoaning the fact that they never see any of the creatures mentioned. While I do agree that the massive influx of playable creatures should be looked at, perhaps the issue is simply the saturation of roleplay in an area. Druidic creatures are naturally (see what I did there?) going to be centralized around bases of Druid power. Necrotic creatures are going to be more common around places where Dark Arts are practiced. Of course, this is simply my opinion.
  10. Shamblebones whistles innocently as the ghoul cleans its halfling-sized crossbow... Halflingly...

      That is genuinely horrifying.

  13. Nexus is a grindfest, there's no denying that. You can't even dig a hole in the ground without specializing in mining. Let me reiterate, YOU CANNOT DIG A HOLE WITHOUT GRINDING. I understand that a lot of time and effort has been put into the plugin, but by now we just need to let it die. It's tedious, boring, and broken. Dev time should be spent creating small, immersive plugins that offer more RP potential than 'Gather X of Y to make Z'. The Hoo-kah addition is a great example of this; Brewing is another. We shouldn't strive to emulate an MMO, this is Minecraft, not WoW. Freedom is central to RP, and promoting grindy, AFK-intensive systems is just taking away from that freedom.
  14. The single largest issue I see with LoTC is a blatant refusal to listen to what the community at large thinks of things. How long have people been complaining about Nexus? How many times have people voiced their opinions on modern PvP? There are clear issues that people have brought to light, and yet those with the ability to change things refuse. Personally, I brushed this topic off as a transparent attempt to garner community goodwill. The ol' ask for advice, then never act on it maneuver. Perhaps this is the nihilist in me speaking, but it seems like no matter how many times issues like this are discussed, nothing happens and the community gets more and more disillusioned. //Endrant
  15. I said this somewhere before, but I suppose I will say it again: There has to be a large variety of spook creature types simply because they are static characters. A Darkstalker cannot learn magic, and must dedicate themselves to martial combat. Liches must be arcane casters, as they are physically too brittle to take a hit. The massive influx of dark creature is natural: Each is locked into one niche skillset, so a menagerie of sorts is necessary to cover all the bases.
