    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    I agree with both of your constraints and in my experience, #2 has been a stopping point from making this a viable low level staple, unless you have an established group feeding you resources. As for splitting into acids and gasses, I don't see that happening, as that would be in direct...

    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    To me, minor is "Can't be blocked by shields" to "Can be blocked by shields". It's a nerf, for sure, but this skill has long been considered very strong for its XP spend. Let's frame this another way. Instead of saying that we dislike the idea of moving the poison strike to alch 20, what would...

    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    Now, on to replying to this. I wrote the original proposal for the sorcerer class, so I am hoping that I can shed some light on the thought process here to maybe clarify its intention. For a basis on the discussion, there is an assumption that the game currently has 4 primary classes. Those...

    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    I don't know you, as a person or as a member of this community, so it is difficult for me to work to find some common ground to have a conversation. However, based on this, it is pretty clear that there are still some substantial negative opinions regarding 2.0 and how that change occurred that...

    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    We said the same thing about scaling weapon profs but I am still pretty strongly in the corner that it was a good change for the game. "That's the way it's always been" is not a valid reason to resist change, to me. I am not sure we are going to see things the same here, sorry. I am seeing a...

    AWY Consolidated 2.1 Questions/Concerns List

    I'm not sure that calling it 'gutting alchemy' is fair. It brings down the power level of the low investment in alchemy 3, which has frankly been far stronger than it should have been for its cost for a long time, especially if you have a group and resources. IMO this brings it more in line to...

    Hook Finale Favorites

    For mine, it's a bit more generic. I enjoyed the feeling that everyone seemed to be moving and shaking on things for most of the weekend. It felt like when stragglers were looking for something, there was always a group they could hook up with. Finding the balance between that and turning every...

    New Footwear

    Mine are from https://houseofandar.com and have treated me well (as long as I keep inserts updated as needed). It is similar to Son of Sandlar, but much less expensive.

    Viktor Hook

    While holding information like this close to the chest may seem advantageous, beware that it also eliminates collaboration and knowledge of others. You make an assumption that the group in the know is more knowledgeable and capable than any you leave out. Additionally, you take all backup plans...

    Splinters of Lore's knowledge

    For the record, my request was not made in anger, nor do I expect recompense, though it was offered by Desylvia. I would prefer he keep his lore tokens and we just treat them as we do other items of power in the future.

    Splinters of Lore's knowledge

    It came to my attention last market that we had potentially been obtaining small splinter's of Lore's knowledge and resources in our adventuring (OOG: Lore Tokens). When I asked about them, I was informed that they had been assigned to adventurers by a small committee to those who had performed...

    Magic, perhaps cursed, Mirrors

    Ok, so here's what I understand, so far. There are two entities we are dealing with. Both named Mary. One is "pure" and has the appearance of helpfulness (giving out the boons, information, being generally pleasant, etc), the other is bloody and is absolutely not helpful. When the large mirror...

    Magic, perhaps cursed, Mirrors

    For the record, if those mirrors are similar to others tied to the large mirror in the Flaming Skull, there are quite a few of those in circulation. They link to spirits and the ones I've seen before assist in absorbing harmful magics cast at the owner. We were told months ago that their true...

    Corrupt and Investitures/COP

    It seems that everything is consistent, per the wording on the formals and the skill, but it sure couldn't hurt to change the wording to something like "may not utilize investiture, even on themselves"

    Corrupt and Investitures/COP

    In the wording for Invest on the forums, it states "An invested Spirit outside the Circle can cause the Circle to recognize him or herself by physically touching it." This explains the mechanic as you automatically recognizing yourself in when you touch the circle/ward, if you are invested. You...
