Hm. Didn't know about the "schools" before. Also, levitate/HOW are countered by weight. You need like pav or sul to float a half-giant. If the Rukkian had stoneskin on, that could account for it because that greatly increases your weight. Stoneskin is by far the best defense against Whirans there is.
In my experience, magick is Wisdom-based to hit/effect, and I believe wisdom and/or endurance based to defend. For example, high wisdom not only gives you more mana, it causes more damage on an attack spell, and gives you a greater chance of success on an "effect" spell like blind or sleep.
Dwarves also have a racial benefit to spell resistance, I believe.
I don't think Levitate/HOW are directly affected by 'weight' so much as 'size' (ie, the combination of weight AND height, so... mass, right?) Typically it takes a reach higher to float someone your same height/weight than it does to levitate yourself. With a rukkian, even one without stoneskin, the more codedly branched they are, the more difficult it seems to get, to the point that at one point, there was one who was a half-elf without stoneskin on who at mon I could make float for only a second, then they dropped back to the ground again, which is crazy because, again, that anecdote about HGs. You can levitate a freakin' beetle with mon. I know this, I've run down the shield wall on a levitating beetle before. Heh.
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

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.
