  1. Funny story, I almost campaigned to change Valeros' armor power feat, until my programmer, George, pointed out a number of armor cards that take advantage of discard.


    We do want to support a way to reset powers eventually, but it may be a little bit. I'll probably package it with another feature set that I can't talk about yet.




    Lol cheers. I'll keep Val the way he is. If I'm not mistaken, I could've sworn I collected a light armor with the discard trait out of deck 4 (from a chest). I'll have to double check when I get a chance. But thanks for the teaser, and letting us know his role will be useful :)

  2. No doubt you're doing your best. Just a suggestion to save everyone a headache, both players and staff - it seemed a lot of posts were getting repetitive regarding the daily thing.


    Feel free to /delete this post if it sounded accusatory at all. Just to reiterate, this is a really fun game. And I do really appreciate you and the other staff hammering out the issues. There are and have been many games where you'd kind of have to deal with bugs for months before getting any help or even acknowledgement (*cough*Vanguard* cough*). You guys do a good job hopping on the problems quickly.

  3. ...that buying daily gold is a bad idea right now? Maybe there should be a freeze on purchases that aren't working til the bugs get worked out and the people who've spent money on things get what they're owed or a refund? I imagine the customer service reps are probably up to their eyeballs in emails asking about this as well.


    Honestly, this is a great game when it works. But I hate to see people get upset about paying for nothing. That's not to say that things aren't going to get fixed in the near future, but it seems like these last two patches have added as many bugs as they've fixed (as evidenced by the bug forum lighting up after each one).


    I haven't downloaded the most recent patch yet, partly because I've been busy, but also in part because I've heard people talk about not being able to even finish a campaign.

  4. @Rhygar - first of all, hiking is no big deal. You start out with a few basic items, some water and a sandwich, a buddy, pick a spot in a state park and go walking. Later, you start to learn about gear you wish you had on that last walk and buy it, then you figure out what kinds of trails you like and hike them. Eventually you end up with some sweet packs and gear, a pair or two of Oboes shoes/boots, and a camera filled with pics of all your favorite plants, wildlife, and views. Try it! :)


    I also played a few mmo's back in the day (EQ, WoW, Vanguard, Rift). I wish there were still gritty mmo games out there, the ones that really made you think and required precise teamwork and thoughtful play, but it seems these days they cater too much to getting a high level character asap and don't involve a whole lot of risk.

  5. Man cumin and chili powder on anything is delicious. A Korean buddy of mine makes a mean bbq, won't tell me the ingredients but swears the main one is Coca-Cola.


    And speaking of lime - try grey goose, splash of cran-grape, some club soda, and 2-3 limes. Awesome summer drink.


    Where do you hike? I used to live in VA and played in the Shenandoah twice a week.

  6. Working that night shift. RN in cardiology.


    Gaming wise, besides this I'll play just about any board game from old-school Civil War games to the new stuff off the rack at the FLGS. Fav's include munchkin, d&d, anything trivia, cranium.


    I stay well rounded though and try not to stay in my nerd shell longer than deemed appropriate. Weekends usually spent wrenching on my jeep, mountain biking, whatever gets me in the sun.


    Capt & coke is one of my fav's, only second to a good top shelf whiskey on the rocks. You'll have to share that bbq recipe if it's good.

  7. Ya, I farm quite a bit with Meri. My experience with the general store has been the same. When I evade a monster the deck gets shuffled, I get to redraw (because of the general store trait), and VERY often that same monster is right back on top of the deck. Fortunately, I can just keep evading forever. But literally out of a deck with 10 cards left, I'll see that same monster on top 4-5x in a row. This is of course somewhat anecdotal - I haven't kept exact count.

  8. As for the why - we got off topic. My point is, if there's a role, etc that has a bit of a grey area that can't be explained in a short phrase in the digital version except quoting the physical game then maybe we should have the option of changing that role? Just saying...


    Also, I appreciate the spoiler about armors yet to come. Maybe I won't scrap Val as originally planned.

  9. Ya, I wanna hear the answer from staff.


    What's the point of taking this role if it doesn't apply to any armor because it's not being "played" if I choose to discard it to absorb damage?


    Let's say I take 1 point of poison damage and I have Magic Half-Plate in my hand. I can't recharge it because of the nature of the poison damage (as opposed to combat damage). In my opinion, I should be able to discard it and have Val's armor proficiency kick in to recharge it.


    If that's not the case, then what? It's either a complete waste and my character is stuck in this role for good, or I should just wait for a few months and hope a couple armors actually have some sort of "discard" feature? I mean for gods sake, the icon for armor mastery is a breastplate lol. Highly misleading if I can't actually recharge a breastplate! Lol. I would go so far as to say even buried breastplates should be recharged for someone who chooses to take this role.

  10. Personally I feel cheated after putting cash towards this game and picking roles that claim to do something beneficial for the characters. The Meri and Val examples were the ones that I picked. Meri's issue is obviously a bug, but Val's issue ... That one I'm not sure about. I'm waiting to hear anything official about what exactly "armor mastery" is supposed to do. It does not give you any sort of recharge ability for breastplates - even though the icon for the ability is a breastplate. If this is working as intended, I'll be pretty upset.

  11. I second this idea. Give us the ability to change roles and other things so that we can get around these broken mechanics. And by broken I mean both because of bugs and actual gameplay.


    Bug example - Meri loses blessings left and right for her dex recharging (esp when played on another character)


    Gameplay mechanics example - Valeros armor recharge, which clearly has a breastplate icon, does nothing. Armors are thrown into the discharge and bury piles without any sort of check to recharge. Just awful.
