  1. The original IE games, such as Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale, implemented a strictly health=live, no health=death mechanic. In these rpgs you are fighting monsters who crush and shred your flesh with tooth and claw, spellcasting wizards who with arcane energy can immolate or rip the life right out of you, duelling brigands and orcs with maces and iron swords. You suffer injuries of the flesh, represented by health. Perhaps the most exhilarating and horrifying aspect of the original games, was the character portrait that would fill up with crimson, from their neck up, as they their bodies were
  2. Now, now, hear me out. When I see my character's portrait fill up with red, that says health to me. Having played the IE games as well as the backer beta, I can say without a doubt that anyone coming from those games is going to be disoriented. "Endurance? WTF is that?" Well, they'll have to learn, as far as combat is concerned, it's really your health. When it reaches zero, you're out of it. That secondary bar? That's your actual health. Do you see the potential for confusion? In RPGs, health is the resource that keeps you in the fight. There is simply no reason to change this for
  3. Hello All, When playing beta I have feeling that I am quite a lot forced to rest due to problems that I am quite ok to keep stamina up with cleric however I am almost on 0 health after few minor encounters with my frontliners. Especialy monk class is suffering as he need to get hit to work properly. I think that 1/4 ration is not enough. I rather have barbarian tank in fullplate than warrior. I think this ratio should be affected by consitution. For example base line would be 10 constitution is 1/4 and for each 2 or 3 points above and bellow it should go to 1/5 or 1/3 regardless. It will m
  4. I've noticed a lot of people really don't like the term "Degenerative Gameplay". I'm really not sure why. You may disagree with how Josh Sawyer uses the term "Degenerative Gameplay" (now DG) sometimes, especially when he's referring to a mechanic or system you don't like... but that doesn't mean the term is flawed. Far from it. DG is an incredibly useful term, because it describes (as I understand it) a situation in which the incentive structure of a game mechanic is flawed. DG, as I've seen it used, describes game mechanics that lead players to take actions that would be absurd or ridicul
  5. Although not a beta participant, I have watched various youtube videos of others' experiences with the beta. From what I've seen the health/stamina mechanic seems confusing, in fact several people have a real problem getting a grip on it... My suggestion is to rename Health, Endurance and rename Stamina, Health. The ratio 1:4, Endurance:Health may remain the same. In combat Health is reduced and recovered by spells, potions etc However, Endurance is recovered only by resting. Healing a wound by magical means goes only as far as repairing the affliction, serious wounds (be
  6. So I wanted to try and make a "useless" combat character and see how well it would do in combat. But what I found out was that my main has a lot more health than she should have. I don't know if im bad at calculating it but it seems to be very wrong. Haven't done other calculations but will trie to look at it later today. Hope this is the right place to post it. My Main Cipher The BB Rogue
  7. After seen demo and listening as Josh has to explain again and again what the hell is stamina i would suggest to rename: Current health -> fatigue stamina -> health I think this would be much less confusing as current state. Fatigue will start at 0 (full bar) and raise to some level 100). 1/ healing spells will restore health (instead of stamina). Which normal naming convention to virtually every RPG. 2/ Resting will now remove the characters fatigue (this actually makes more sense). 3/ As characters gain new levels, their hit points increases. (again standard naming conv
  8. I was wandering and I believe it hasn't mentioned before, but do we have any idea about the enemies' health condition indication? Will it be like we can see their remaining hit point or maybe, like the IE games, a description of it (uninjured, near deth etc)?
  9. These are some brainstormed ideas in reply to another thread, I understand that Eternity is well underway production. See this more as inspiration for future IP's or future Eternity's. I touch a lot of subjects in a single thread here, the idea is consistent and as a whole simply different puzzle pieces to a larger picture. I call it Diamondman Mode (previously known as "HellMetal Mode" or "Strongman Mode", and reluctantly "Old-Meets-New Mode"), which I find appropriate. This is an idea to get the game as difficult, but manageable, as possible. Rogue-like-ish, and in my opinion an interesting
  10. Looking through the PE wiki just now, I realized that there wasn't much information on level advancement. Since I couldn't find anything solid, I want to get a general feel how the community feels about it. 1. Should the growth of stats like accuracy, defense, skill points, and health/stamina be dependent on class? 2. Should stat growth be more exponential or linear? 3. How often(if at all) should attribute growth happen? 4. At what rate should a character get talents, and should some classes get them faster than others? 5. How should the XP requirement for leveling up be d
  11. If some don't like Vanacian and many don't like cooldowns, what then? Here's an idea: Fatigue * EDIT: in case you havn't figured it out yet, red is health, green is morale * Lets say your mage starts the day with 100 fatigue (or 1000.. higher numbers might be better for balancing and nuances) He and the party go traveling. They've been on the road for 2 hours and the mages maximum fatigue has gone down, so now he's at 90/90. Max fatigue goes down as the day goes by and as you do physicly demanding things (long journesy, running, etc..). Even if you don't cast any spel
