I guess you're talking about me lulz, yeah, I used to run around with a mon shield/plant and another sul shield that creates thorns behind you. I took on a dam silt horror and made it for 30 rounds or so.
All characters have a hidden intoxication skill. Repeatedly getting extremely intoxicated/shitfaced will raise the skill which will help prevent you from being intoxxed to unconsciousness by a viv. Intox can only be used in the milder climates and cannot be used in the desert.
That means that Vivaduan cannot be that deadly given one can buildup resistance to Intoxication. Had the spell's effect been immediate and bypassing a resistance I would see its value. The Poison is probably like Blood Burn which is quite easy to cure. I fail to see then how a Vivaduan can mount an effective attack.
Does Calm stop all attacks while it lasts? Can it be broken if you attack? How strong is the Health Drain? How effective is the Intoxication+Poison combo? What does Sanctuary do?
I think the others said poison was like bloodburn, but because it's magick you can't cure it with mundane means.
The mon level topped out at 150 damage over the whole duration?
One shot one kill.
Ah right. Forgot about altering the power of spells. Then by that same token Intoxication would be almost an instant unconsciousness at Mon. I suppose that does make a Vivaduan very dangerous. How about Health Drain?
It's shit IMO, not nearly as powerful as a chain lightning to the fucking face.
Yeah. I imagined so. Most drain spells suck. Apparently to make them not so game breaking since they do damage and heal at the same time. So they usually tend to be horrible at both. On flip side tactically speaking it can be used as another effect on top of the DoT from poison given the invulnerability you can get. If you get hurt you drain them. Stack the Poison and maybe Intoxication and that's a pretty solid combo.
And Sanctuary? Someone mentioned it does damage but it has no description.
Vivaduans aren't at all impressive, at least in comparison to other magick guilds, until they start crafting HP regenerating objects. At that point, you're going to be known as a magicker very quickly because people will abuse the hell out of OOC knowledge.
Tl;dr Powerful. Ungemmed. As a vivaduan you can only be one of these.

Lurklord. I'm sorry to tell you this, but if you're a magicker that casts spells. No matter what hole you're hiding in, the odds of you being unknown as a gicker for more then two months is "zero". Unless you're a sorcerer, or nilazi. Then once you pass a certain window of vulnerability, you may have a chance of being unknown for awhile.
So it doesnt matter what guild you are. If you are powerful, you're long played, and if you're long played, somebody knows you're a rogue gick.
I forgot the spell combo for the drunkenness, but if you check the pattern, you can figure it out. Green Indicates first/initial tier. Yellow Indicates second tier. Red Indicates third Tier. Purple indicates Last/Fourth tier.

qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience
Sept 5, 2019 13:01:26 GMT -5
qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
