Feature Requests / Re: Secondary Class Idea
« Last post by Gordy77 on Today at 07:54:03 AM »
Do other classes have so many pro and con? I don't feel like they do (with the exception of Hero), and not counting the priest.

It might be better if you were able to summarise other classes and get a feel for how much away they each have compared to Warrior class, and settle on something equally powerful, rather than a dizzy list of skills and abilities that other classes lack.

On Beluaterra

Tam, pulled at the reins of his horse, and it came to a plodding stop, even his horse seemed like it had fallen into despair.

Tam Looked upon the Priestess as she approached him and then she spoke.

"Welcome, Noble of Bara'Khur…….are you here because you know what must be done to save this land? Will you join us in prayer and be inducted into The Order as the official second member? Your contribution could mean the salvation of the world itself with sacrifices across it! To prevent the scourge of disease and abominations from spreading further. Come to me and show your piety, then I shall then induct you if you so wish...…"

Tam listened to her words and thought. Would he? His Family had always followed the Daishi faith, but he was born into it, he can’t even remember if he ever met or saw a Daishi Priest. It ranked at him, here he was fighting, his men dying and the Priests of Daishi did nothing.

Tam motioned to his men and they tentatively helped him dismount, with solid ground under his feet he stepped towards the Priestess. Tam was quite tall and as he got closer to the Priestess he tilted his head down, he met her eyes and spoke. “So be it”

Tam withdrew his sword and with some effort he bent down on one knee, placing it in front of Priestess and spoke “Priestess of Mordok , I Tam Gardarr, Inquisitor of Bara'Khur, Noble of this Realm hereby denounce my ties to Daishi and all it entails and pledge my sword and life to The Order of Mordok.

Behind him Tam’s remaining men also knelt and took the oath.

With a sigh Tam rested his head against the hilt of his sword. He was so very, very tired.

Roleplay from Angela Barrett

"More people would believe if there's a city to spread the truth in.... I cannot remain here." Angela mumbled to herself while wandering the ruined battlefield where Bara'Khur's forces were forced to withdraw for now. She decided to make her way down to Wunderkin in order to properly spread the faith, hoping that the Nobles would catch on. In truth Angela is hoping for more than that, she knows that for the Peasantry to take The Order seriously they must have a permanent dwelling in form of a Temple or Shrine. In order to do that....she must preach to the masses in the city.

So she gathered in the Town Plaza and spoke and spoke and spoke for twelve whole hours, attracting a large crowd of listeners although only a few actually took the truth to heart. Angela was not worried, for after the sermon she sees someone approaching her on a horse in Noble garb. So she advances to them and poses them a interesting question.

"Welcome, Noble of Bara'Khur…….are you here because you know what must be done to save this land? Will you join us in prayer and be inducted into The Order as the official second member? Your contribution could mean the salvation of the world itself with sacrifices across it! To prevent the scourge of disease and abominations from spreading further. Come to me and show your piety, then I shall then induct you if you so wish...…"

Meanwhile on Beluaterra

Tam rode through the dusty streets of Wundekin, his arm in a sling. A vicious monster even by its own kind had taken a hold of it and broken it right in half before he could dispatch of it.

Walking is his wake was what was left of his men, some wounded others happy to be alive, and in total they amounted to eight. Tam felt despair take hold of him again.

What was the point, it never ended …

Tam came back to himself as his horse stopped moving, a massive group of peasants was in the city plaza listening to a priestess. Tam let her voice carry him away, he closed his eyes and her voice washed over him. For the first time since the invasion of the Hordes he felt at peace.

Tam didn’t know how long he sat there in his saddle, but when he came to again the crowd had dissipated and only a few were in the center plaza surrounding the Priestess.

He spurred his horse closer to her.

BM General Discussion / Re: Script to copy your Battle Report to the Wiki easily
« Last post by MTYL on June 19, 2018, 01:00:01 PM »
Gabanus is right. It's very much possible to translate his script to php, js or anything web-usable really. In fact with all the variables already there for battle reports it shouldn't even be that much effort to make it part of bm official. And since it already uses wiki heavily I don't see why not.

Feature Requests / Re: Allow knights to build shrines
« Last post by pcw27 on June 18, 2018, 04:21:11 PM »
As a priest, I would love this idea.

Though if if it were implemented, I would want Shrines to no longer drain money from the religion banks.  As is, if too many knights did this it could bankrupt a religion in short order.

Then limiting it to one per estate would help.

Gabanus, any chance of you doing this in something I can host on a website, in PHP perhaps?

I'm afraid that my knowledge on that end is somewhat limited.

The initial purpose of these scripts were to have actual challenges for me to expand my knowledge on coding. I'm not entirely sure how you would transform a VBA script into something webbased.

In the case of BM itself for instance I would imagine it may even be easier to just take a look at the part of the script that gives the layout of a battle report and in turn give a second option to change that layout to a wiki friendly one. In the BM code you already have the different variables after all, which I now had to retroactively reproduce as the source code was just a piece of text, void of the variables used to create it.

If you have specific questions or suggestions on how to do this and think I may be able to aid feel free to let me know though. So far I've only really been focussing on VBA and SQL though, so my knowledge on any other language is limited at best. Do plan on adding php within a few months, but will focus on SQL properly first.

BM General Discussion / Re: Best Unique Item Names!
« Last post by Sharpspeare on June 18, 2018, 02:05:18 AM »
It's a realm, not a character. They were on BT, and they died in the Third Invasion because when they were losing the war they started against Riombara, they absolutely refused to accept any peace that didn't amount to Riombara surrendering (for instance, they insisted upon taking several regions from Riombara in any peace treaty), and when the Invasion came, they still wouldn't give up even to fight against the monsters, undead, and daimons.

So the monsters, undead, and daimons wiped them out.

Thank you Anaris. See how little I knew, I thought it was a person, not a realm.
