Bug Reports / Sand trolls and Scare
January 15, 2024, 04:50:46 AM
Hey, when casting scare on sand trolls, they'll do the save, but won't actually get feared. There doesn't seem to be any event messages saying they are immune to fear, so I assumed it was a bug.
Suggestions / I need a Hero
January 12, 2024, 06:31:15 AM
One of my favorite systems in EFU has been the Randomized hero NPCs that'll show up in the wastes as well as quests. However, I think it could use some expanding- I'd personally love to see more heroes for bandits, undead, and animatronic enemy types.

Buongiorno Sergeant,

I hope the night is treating you well, and that your workload has been light!

When you have a chance to speak to me, I would like some of your time to bend an ear on political matters.

Dearest Khan,

At your earliest convenience, I would like to discuss a matter of politics with you. I think it would be to our mutual benefit- if possible, I would like to try to meet either today or before the meeting at the gold league tomorrow.

 It is not imperative that it occurs within that timeframe, but it would be beneficial.

Nadiri Lapa Taiapetra
Buongiorno, my fellow league members- It is time.

We have for too long not spoken on any of our League's matters- a situation that must be remedied as soon as possible. I want you to all write back to me on what days would best for a meeting- you may include viable times as well //Please include timezone//. I will compile these results and announce a meeting as soon as possible.

Wine will be provided for attendees. If you know any cooks, do let me know-

League Member Lapa Taiapetra.

A letter arrives at the Krak with the symbol of the gold league printed on its side


You said at our last meeting that you would be raising daily meetings for the Gold league. While I am sure you are busy, would it be possible for you to do one soon? We have been too lax in the present day and there are things I would like to discuss as soon as possible. If you do not think you are able to regularly schedule these meetings, I would gladly take such position.

League Member,

Experiment idea: Helm of Unthinking

As proposed by my colleague, using a helmet would allow the device to better impact the brain for desired outcome. The issue, however, would be a power source. While we could repurpose the suggested objects to suppress a subjects cognitive function, I doubt that would last forever by itself.

Perhaps a secondary device that acts as a charging mechanism for device A.

[The messy scrawl continues to suggest a variety of devices and methods to provide constant power, including affixing a baublium intake in the helmet.]
Suggestions / Better Conjurers
November 28, 2023, 08:56:48 AM
If character is sorcerer or wizard (with conjuration school) and they possess the feat GSF: Conjuration, I think it would be interesting to let them interact with conjuration items in a unique way.

For example, for reagents that get consumed upon use, maybe the conjurer draws additional strength from the summon focus and all summons are +1. While for summoning times, the conjurer bypasses any negative summon modifier attached to the book. 
Introductions and Group Management / The Mafia di Ferro
October 25, 2023, 04:45:19 AM
QuoteOutcasts, cultists, thugs, and freaks– all struggling to make their mark as they languish in an impoverished nook within gutters... No longer.

Looking for outcast PCs who would normally have a difficult time existing in the Well without being hunted or rejected for their particular beliefs. The Mafia di Ferros focus as a group will be to pursue multiple illegal sources of income- anywhere from smuggling drugs to assassinations and ransoming- using that money to improve upon the Creep as a minor Hub. This group is going to be centered mostly around PvP and evil pcs, but there is certainly room for Chaotic Neutral rebels who want to stick it to the Janis'. 

Race : Any
Class : No Paladins. Necromancers and Djinn-centered characters will find it challenging to fit in.
Alignment: Any Evil or Chaotic neutral

Suggestions / General suggestions for the Creep
October 23, 2023, 09:05:17 PM
Hey, since I've been playing a character aimed at the Creeps, I've noticed some things that have really made it challenging to work with. With that in mind, rather than make a number of different posts in regards to changes I'd like to see, I am going to list them out here. I'll update the post as ideas come to mind.

Sand tunnel entrance
QuoteShort and simple- the entrance into the Creep from the sandworm tunnels shouldn't be a transition that can be entered via moving, rather it should be something you can click on to enter
only. There have been a lot of times where I'll find bodies of enemies slain in the creep, and if you are particularly unlucky, someone might have pulled a really tough enemy. This is rather immersion breaking, especially when those mobs kill all the NPCs in the Creep.

Smuggler favor
QuoteWhile there is a smuggler you can buy potions from, I find that once you get yourself cut-off from the hub, you'll struggle a lot with supplies. With that in mind, I would like to suggest that per reset, if you spawn in the Creep, you amass a number of favor points that can be redeemed at the nearby smuggler to buy supplies- Things like potions or waters would be very appreciated.

Alternative Wormer
QuoteIt'd be nice to have somewhere in the creep to drop off worm bits- same limit as the one located at the hope (100 max) and perhaps a worm grinder as well. Just for those who aren't able to enter the hope.

Public and private Sendings
QuoteOne of the hardest parts about playing a Creep only character is that you might end up banned from both the Krak and the Well. While you still have the ability to bellow, the fact that they don't show on discord is both a blessing and curse. Its great for general messages, but its not so great if you're trying to quest. In that regard, I'd like to request that the sending machine in the spires area be able to send public messages (In that they show on discord). This sending machine in particular is actually rather risky to use, as the spawns you might run into on the way can kill you quite fast.

Gentile Signore Jackle,

Should you have time, I would wish to discuss matters of mercantile with you.

Suggestions / Poisonous blunt weapons

If it isn't hardcoded, I'd like to suggest that poisons be able to be applied to blunt weapons.

Correspondence / A letter to Ettore Lazzari

[From a single envelope two sheets of a paper are delivered. Upon the first:]

Gentile Signore Lazzari,
We should speak another time, on other things.
Tuo amico.

[Upon the second paper:]

I'm not great at writing obits, but i'll give it a try for Ferric.

Ferric was created because of two things I wanted to try- first being a Janissary since I loved playing a Watcher in prior chapters, and second being a strength monk. I had a lot of fun with it, and I can honestly say that playing a Janissary is a blast. They have a lot of good friction with other factions, especially the Banda Ross,  whom I swear were always a hair away from street brawling with us. The legal stuff is a lot of fun- as is the politics. There is just a lot to enjoy from it- its a great experience.

In fact, the only reason I am retiring Ferric is because he is a monk and I have weird hang-ups about playing them. My biggest hang-up regarding monks has always been their philosophy aspect- which in Ferric's case, I feel like I may have not done well enough to actually explore or represent. Nevertheless, I had a good time with Ferric which is in not short thanks to the PC's he interacted with. Namely, Averroes, Joachim, Colmes, All of the Banda Rossa, Marcellus, Domnhall, the Apothars, and others.

I also want to thank Roxy, Bearic, Abala, and HB for giving me some things to do and interact with the NPCs of the Janissary.

I have a few Screenies, but not many since I suck at remembering to take them.

Ferric was my first Pc to drop as low as 0 on the good and evil spectrum, that was cool!

Big thanks for these:

Suggestions / Better light crossbows
October 11, 2023, 07:59:34 PM
With the new change making all crossbows a x3, which I think is overall better for crossbows, I wanted to suggest that light crossbows be changed from a d8 to a d6 with an increase to their critical mod from a x3 to a x4. Less per shot damage, but with a chance to do a huge amount of damage from a lucky crit- especially as players gain better ammo and if they have access to self buffs like bard song. Currently the only major difference between a light and heavy crossbow is the damage and weight.
The Many-Fold Paths

Correspondence / A letter to Deputy Chief Scribe

Dearest Deputy Chief,

I would like request a certain trial record for an individual, last name Childkiller. I believe these would be public records at this point.

This is an update regarding that old case you asked me to look into. Unfortunately, given that the case was handled immediately, there seems to be no record available for me to check. That said, I do have an alternative idea of where I can find these records, but I wouldn't get your hopes up for another trial.

I do remember there was trial and a ruling. Given that, it means that we would be unable to retry them for the same crime as it has already been seen to- likely by former legate Sol. That said, it may be possible for a current legate to overturn the trial results; though that is only a hypothesis. It might not hold any weight in court.

Suggestions / Let XP ticks progress through questing
September 24, 2023, 11:16:22 PM
I've noticed that when dying on a quest, you'll generally lose your xp ticks after turning that quest in. That means if you die moments before turning in a quest, you'll likely not see much from the ticks.

If that's the intent, fair enough. But it really does suck if you die at the boss near the end of a quest.

Dear Legate,

In regards to your athletics club, I would be willing to lead a jogging class. Please send any information regarding the club to me at the Garrison.

Thank you,
