On Masters - They really ought to

March 01, 2019 09:07AM
While not Masters per se (cause who doesn't like a coat of fresh paint), they really really really do need a competent ALL-INCLUSIVE mage cabal (none of this crap where even a conjurer can't find a home - I'm looking directly at you entropy... a once likely chance to have a reason to die masochistically as a chaos conji).

But the Cabal should reflect what Outlander has done with ethos and alignment on what/which skills members get. Like masters, each mage sect should have something unique:
Conjuration
Invocation
Necromancy
Alteration/Transmutation (someone clever aptly divide up the schools in which shapeshifter and transmuter are separate)

Possible Class Exceptions off top of my head: Thief -arcane path requirement, Ranger -animist path requirement

Then alignment flavors for Good, Neutral, Evil respectively
Then ethos flavors for Orderly, Neutral, Chaotic

Then a final flavor to really one-up the Outlander mix: Good/Orderly, Good/Neutral, Good/Chaotic, Neutral/Orderly, Neutral/Neutral, Neutral/Chaotic, Evil/Orderly, Evil/Neutral, Evil/Chaotic
Then in closing, a semblance of rank progression... gaining entrance shouldn't be overly difficult, true acceptance of all mages wishing to contribute to the cause, but then progression in the mage sect. An arch-mage leader position that could gain a perk from each of the schools of magic, Individual Sect Masters that gain the individual top perk of their school of magic.

On the side, Could you imagine the amount of return players that would come back for either this cabal or to revitalize Battle with some honest-to-good enemies?

I used to love empowerment classes, mainly healers.

Whyisdan, Ishuli, Ergush, Avderlain, custom empowerment, also you don't need empowerment anymore

Kstatida March 08, 2019 12:50AM

I know that empowerment isn't strictly necessary anymore, but it certainly helps. And I looked at those helpfiles, and still thought.. meh.

One Easy Fix: Weekend Double XP

kadsuane March 01, 2019 07:48PM

Hey, don't discriminate.

Kez March 02, 2019 07:09PM

But double xp all weekend would hit all time zones

kadsuane March 03, 2019 01:07PM

So long as its all weekends.

Kez March 04, 2019 01:10AM

The Forsaken(VIP) March 03, 2019 02:14PM

Some good points but I disagree with the evils having trouble ranking thing...

K-B March 01, 2019 08:11AM

I don't know what kind of mobs you are killing in darsylon at 40

kadsuane March 01, 2019 12:17PM

Kez March 02, 2019 07:00PM

Unless things have changed since I played... then not if you're d-elf. (n/t)

IrishMidnight March 01, 2019 09:07AM

Who's gonna code all of that, nevermind test it?

zoskia March 01, 2019 02:45PM

Or they could accept programmers without having to IMM :-) (n/t)

starbright March 01, 2019 07:23PM

have they ever said the cons of open source and semi-public repository?

The Forsaken(VIP) March 02, 2019 05:33AM

Most muds are rife with spaghetti. I doubt CF is much different. NT (n/t)

Quixotic March 02, 2019 06:58AM

Good professional software engineers shouldn't find it hard to follow

starbright March 02, 2019 09:04PM

Quality of the code is irrelevant

zoskia March 02, 2019 07:24AM

Where I was going with this...

Quixotic March 10, 2019 08:36AM

True story

saagkri March 02, 2019 08:07AM

I agree on Masters bringing back players

K-B March 01, 2019 11:41AM

On the ranking thing

daurwyn March 01, 2019 08:58AM

Yeah, on my list of problems with the game...

K-B March 01, 2019 11:42AM

Don't agree with the cabal views although I can see they are valid views
