That was amazing.

I nearly choked on laughter when Cloudkill clipped me.
Bug Reports / Blackout Area

Endurance was not dispelled by subdual, but wore off while I was in the unconsciousness zone. This resulted in me being "subdued" again by the drop in hit points, putting my body placeable in the darkness. I eventually "woke up" there.

A remains item appeared where I was, independent of my inventory.
Suggestions / Petrification and Ascetics

As Stone to Flesh does not affect an ascetic, even though they would likely have high saves to resist petrification in the first place, they may need an alternative solution to the status effect.

This NPC has often died to large groups of rock worms before I even have the chance to attack him! While I understand the Worm Pits can be a dangerous place, perhaps he could be afforded some level of protection?

A single point of damage reduction, or percentage of damage resistance, is sure to keep him alive without staving off would-be bandits.

Strangely, the EFU launcher has not been properly installing HAKs and has been logging first time players in as "Player."

This thread may need to be updated!
Suggestions / Familiar Overhaul

This merits its own thread.

I know nothing of the toolkit, and a lot of this sounds unfeasibly complicated...

Quote from: ShadowCharlatan;396297
  • Retain the penalty, but incentivize familiar/companion usage through conferring some sort of minor bonus to the master (as opposed to making the creatures themselves overly mechanically strong) such as:
    • a buff that is applied on summon and disappears on unsummon or death
    • an increase in XP gain from killing monsters while the familiar/companion is summoned
    • Reduce or remove the penalty, but replace it with something else... some examples would be:
      • a simple system that prevents the familiar/companion from being summoned again for some IRL period after its death.
      • OR a more complex custom familiar system that makes familiars/companions into things that you can find or purchase ICly and bond with... (but when they die, their death is permanent and irreversible)

      Naturally this is not a very likely thing to be made, but it would enable a diversity of familiars/companions, and would also give more mechanical scope for concepts like:

      - mages/druids/rangers that go through many familiars/companions that they don't particularly give a shit about...

      - or mages/druids/rangers that seek deeper bonds with familiars/companions for the unique benefits such bonds provide (with the caveat that such bonds increase the chance that a familiar/companion's death would do horrible things to you... like slam you with negative XP, spell failure, negative stats, or even just straight up kill you)

      and a lot more potential stuff i won't bother going into since it's not really relevant to the original suggestion
    [/hide]...but all of it sounds cool, and I know this is an eventual goal for the dungeon staff.

    I particularly like the idea of a familiar's buff lasting only for as long as it's summoned. It has me tingling with nostalgia for D&D's rulebook, and would highlight how these are permanent, personal companions that travel with their masters.

    Animal partners could provide appropriately druidic advantages to the characters they're bonded with, while out and about, from totem powers to heightened senses.
    Off-topic Discussion / Official Wayfinder Colors

    Quote from: Howland;384163I think hot pink and violet green would be appropriate, yes.
    Quote from: Talir;384174Deep blue and safety orange would make them stick out too, as a viable second alternative.

    Our wise and diligent dungeon masters deliberate, even now, the best uniform for the fledgling Wayfinder association. What shall breathe the most life and innovative identity into our premier scouts? Safety cloaks to accentuate their adventurous spirit? Candy pink to highlight their spunk? Mustard yellow to emphasize their purity of heart?

    Their options our many. Too many.

    As is often asked of our community, we must guide them with our valuable and fully unbiased opinions.

    What say you?

    Can we all agree without discussing any of the content itself that this has been one of the most amazing things ever?

    Because it definitely is.

    I often have substantial levies of summoned creatures that I'd like to do away with all at once. I am free to hurriedly dismiss them one by one in decent time, but this would be a convenience if it could be made a command.

    I'm uncertain if it would be of value to anyone else.
    I walked into the quest earlier today, to be confronted by a dozen illusions left behind by the last player. I thankfully had an AC of 22 and hit count of 48, so I was fine, but can be incredibly deadly for more fragile characters.  Just one illusion by the door could take down an unprepared mage.

    Please change the summoned illusions to exist on a timer, so that they fade between quest takes.

    The bear companion goes from 2d6+STR claw damage to 1d6+STR when leveling up from 3 to 4.

    I find it strange that the companion would become weaker as the druid levels up.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been reported yet, if it hasn't. It may have already been fixed.

    When a DM directly adds a Watcher to the faction rather than through the Basic Training quest process, they can not unlock the in-between bunker. They are otherwise able to pass through the doors they should be.

    I assume there is some minute difference between the items a DM can spawn and the items Dempford gives.
