In effect, Erik was exactly the type of character everyone is complaining about? :P A few of those are good to have, but at least those types have an excuse - and can be balanced by less-aggressive personalities.

I for one welcome a sudden flood of Goats 'round our corner of the world. I'd wager a big enough stampede could give those undead a run for their money.

Yxevarii's going to have about as many friends as Astros himself after today's shenanigans.  ;D

Sometimes you need the open palm... Others, the clenched fist.

If I don't get at least one protest tomorrow, I'm not sure if I'll be relieved or disappointed.  :o

Hmm. Good idea. Prevents abuse from people siphoning gold to enrich their family coffers, and makes things more intelligent.

Would be cool to slate a few more passive growth messages too. Make it feel more intimate/connected.

Maybe its made up of really big ringlets? More like a metallic fishnet bodice than actual chainmail, heh. Take it from me: fishnet garb does nothing to hide your naughty bits.

Just goes to show that players have found a way to manipulate an obvious flaw in the combat mechanics which the coders never planned for.

Happens. A LOT. In game development. Or, honestly, any kind of engineering really.

Someone, somewhere, will find some completely insane or ridiculous way to obsolete an entire system by uncovering an unexpected oversight.

Then, you fix/patch/redesign and become more robust than ever. :)

...Because 1,000 archers loosing a massive volley of arrows will *totally* land within a perfect 3-by-3 box and miss everyone else in the army, and no one else will have maybe tried aiming for the huge ocean of warm bodies a few paces behind them, because logic

Arthion Eyolf Serpentis has the best item of all ... the majestic... Mediocre Warhammer.

But... my adv just found the Sturdy Chainmail of Perleone. I need to find someone from Perleone... or someone who won against Perleone.

...Or someone who lost against Perleone, LOL. Give it to Kinsey!

You're right about a few things, sadly. Magnus (I) didn't want to believe you (Sayuki) because he thought Robb was a friend and actually meant what he had promised. As a player I was cynical but as a character, Magnus' personality dictated his reaction.

Starfall straight up informed me OOC that he'd be pursuing an alliance with Caligus to wreck GX due to us pulling out of the alliance negotiations due to that ill-advised referendum after the no-allies faction got loud, and did roughly the same IC albeit more veiled. Apologies were said both ways, and we parted. To each his own.

Robb never liked Selenia, nor her personality or playstyle, nor did a number of other people. I was warned (for reasons I did not comprehend at the time) not to let a JeVondair take power for what it'd do to Xavax, but Selenia was my 2nd-in-command and the only person I could trust not to completely derail Xavax and erase its history&culture.

Also, for the record, Xavax had a secret faction super-early-on that wanted to conquer Ibladesh, so you're only half-right. They put pressure on certain key figures, including Magnus, in exchange for favors and support. I dunno what went on after Magnus abdicated early, but I doubt they just abandoned their entire plot-arc of reconquering Ibladesh and founding a Xavax-Ibladeshi satellite realm just because Selenia took power. I, at least, had convinced them to do it my way rather than overthrow the government and gun for Ibladesh right off the bat. They were even open to peaceful religious conversion, so long as their religion ended up being in charge of Ibladesh.

That one noblewoman was their leader, I forget who else was part of the faction though. God, we had so many factions... Too many influential, powerful players used to running the show.

Too many leaders, not enough followers. Probably what screwed us in the end.
