  1. ^ This would be a really good mechanic. This leads me to... I'd really like to be able to distribute some roles in my party as: speaker, collector, first in stealth (someone who has the reflexes to NOT trip into traps) They could be really helpful if the whole party is selected.
  2. Sounds to me like a Titan Quest dream/fighter hybrid. What could be interesting is the roleplay of such a class.
  3. This looks like a soul tick to me --> mindwaving/stunning an opponent, shielding oneself, sticking to them. From what I have read a cipher can be a very defensive fighter who is centered on a 1 on 1 fight. Ciphers could be devastating against monks (no real damage for their abilities) and would gain a lot if they would have ways to regenerate or suck stamina and health. I'd like to play one.
  4. I have the feeling the story of P:E resembles somehow a parralel world in which a high civilised african "Columbus" has discovered a lesser technical advanced slavic/celtic/roman europe. Something in that way with soul magic. mostly celtic/slavic/germanic until now. But we nearly know only the monster's names, the similarity of languages/words.
  5. My first mission over all others will be to find El Dorado and place it in my stronghold. Wholely. Not an ich of gold should be spared... After that I will wait until the end boss wants to rob me of my riches and crush this envy bastard with hired defenders.
  6. The odd emphasis on I and you in this particular screenshot example is part of Oswalds habits. He always speaks to the party as if they were deaf or not intelligent enough to understand him. Therefore the pronounciation. You didn't like Oswald, Hiro, didn't you?
  7. I'd really like to be able to cast an "orb of shadows" to take out a single foe. The idea is to clad an area in shadows, giving me time to position my entire group around him. The foe will either be alerted and flee or keep standing still on his spot dazzled. Then my men and women will strike unseen and unheard. If he survives it, the foe will want to fllee again but maybe he keeps engaged. If he can flee the illusion will break which exposes my entire group. I could also just pickpocket him to get the stuff I want...
  8. Pickpocketing Level < Alert Level ---> chance of getting caught + incease of AL after trying rises. PL<<<AL ---> chance of getting slapped/ knocked own rises. You wont get nothing from this trial than trouble. PL>>>AL ---> chance of getting heavier or hidden (worn /in stack) belongings rises, chance of not getting noticed at all rises.. PL>AL ---> you get more time to run away, still the AL rises for some time (maybe days). everything else is up to your speechcraft or your cold steel...
  9. I really hope the Reviving Exhortation is worth its later use... I mean its ( in other RPGS) in most of all situations a better choice to revive characters earlier than later --> fighting value is longer at the important situations (mid-combat) of use. What use does it have to restore a character at the end of combat if everything is nearly over? - it would be good if the characters were given additional damage/ stamina points if they were longer in 0 stamina-state. - maybe they can ignore engagement zones for a while if they were longer out. The enemies might forget a threat over the time... - faking death with rouges should use the same effect without a real stamina crash. --> which leads to some tactical possibilities you wouldn't have if you revived a character who just fell. ( But please let them stay down for a reasonable minimum of time. I dont want to fight with or against tumblers.)
  10. - oppression/ psychoterror out of other reasons than the mentioned. - pariahs - organ/soul trade + illegal removals - identity theft
  11. Druids should get their bonuses everywhere besides foreign planescapes or bewitched/unholy ground. I like the thought of Druids b(e)eing controllers of all surroundings that bear the essence of life. This includes raising barrages of wood/stone, stalagtite-rain, spikes and thorns, walking on/splitting water. In comparison a necromancer would get huge bonuses in graveyards/mausoleums or places where death is deep woven into: Ther you'd gain the ability to raise bone-barrages and other Dead stuff (I like Diablo 2 for its view on necromancy) and bonuses on the quantity of raised dead things. But: Are necromancers even announced yet? Would be fun to have the possibility for Druids to either have life or death as power source... Both are one side of the coin called equilibrium :D
  12. Sounds like Kresselack in IWD 1. I would really like to see many factions of dungeon keepers having war against each other constantly (No exp for killing is quite awesome in the context of respawning enemies ^^). If enemies like Kresselack in IWD1 and the priests of Auril in IWD2 would be fighting all the time in some area with maybe 3 dungeons (2 HQ and at least 1 place both want to conquer besides extinguishing the enemy would be great) it would perfectly hit my intent. I didn't like the fight between the druegar and the monks in IWD2 because it was too linear in which way you encountered them. i would like to see the war first and then seek out for one of their HQs. Many layers of vast dungeons upon each other and linked in many spots might be difficult and costly to design, but for a battlegrund this would be soo goood...
  13. Then why dont you start a thread with your thoughts to a proper fraction system? In here it could go under... By the way: Interesteng characters can lead to interesting relationships (unless you don't slay them on first sight). I dont think these things exclude each other. But if you want romance waaaay down the priority ranking in a RPG I have to disagree. For me its more like: 1. Interesting characters 2. Interesting relationships 3. Interesting friendship/ romance (deeper close relationship concepts) 3. Interesting fractions (deeper society relationship concepts) Just imagine Gothic 1 without Diego, Gorn and the others. You need key persons to fractions so you need interesting characters and relationships first. But its just better, if they are not only key persons but can establish a closer relationship! 4. having family... ...If it still fits in the context of the game world with you as an adventurer. I like the concept of the "fun" wife in FO: NV because it merges with the concept of the game world. For me it sounds nice to have "family" under the circumstances of a foreign world, but it should have written "this kind of family is quite impossible to realize in your world" all over it! Nonetheless it should still give the feeling of family. ...If your PC is able to survive the game. He could maybe retire from his adventurous deeds and found a more "normal" family or return to his family which he had to abandon in order to fulfill his selfcentered heroic urges. 4. Invest in the ecosystem. Lumber Dyrwood. Get the richest man/ woman in the new world! . . . n+1. Well implied exchange of body fluids. But only if someone really wants to found that. n+1. Unlock a video which shows your PC counting lots of money... if you hit the score of 1.000.000 GM!
