What stat allocation do people normally run with on char gen for each guild?
Thoughts on racial modifiers factoring into this?
Dwarf warrior will be thick as shit, half-elf warrior will be pretty balanced... etc
Particularly interested in allocation though
Also, parting question. If I roll a younger char and wait until middle age will my stats then be the same as if I had rolled that same char at middle age? I guess what that question is getting at is, if I roll a younger char will I be negatively impacted in the long run?
I'm thinking you want a character in their early-mid 20's if you're rolling an agility or strength based character. That gives seems to give a good balance between strength and agility. Agility seems to start dropping off around 27-28.
But if I roll a 13 year old char and wait until I'm 20 will my stats be usable and normal?
I believe Morg fixed aging code years ago. So the age effects on stats are all normalized, and it just works from your base rolls coming out the Hall of Kings.
Although, I don't know if it accounts for guild+age stat changes putting you over the racial limits.
For example Pickpocket at 13. Certainly no agility penalty at 13. Pick pockets get a +2. Let's say you roll an 18 agility. +2. so 20? No it's 19. That's the human racial limit. Part of the guild buff is wasted.
Same character but they started at 20. Rolled an 18 for agility. Pickpockets get a +2. 20 year olds have lets just say a -1 on agility. They'd still have a 19. Still have an AI agility at 20.
The 13 year old would age to 20, and end up with an 18.
The example could be the case, or Morg could of accounted for all of this. Maybe he has code limitations though.
The other 3 stats will be nowhere close to 19, due to age. Agility might be gimped, if you get a high roll for it. I've never seen a 13 year old character age to 14 and keep an AI agility though. To be fair, I haven't played a lot of 13 year olds.

So you're saying that if you roll up a younger char and wait until you're older your str, end and wis won't scale up properly and won't reach the levels they should, or that Morg fixed that and now it should scale properly?
No the not-agility stats should be fine. They will scale perfectly, because Morg has fixed that. Agility, if you roll high, would possibly be gimped. On pick-pockets it's very likely, if racial stat limits stop extra points. I don't know if the code Morg put in for aging is robust enough to not have that problem though. SO it is -possibly- the case. I've never had a 13 year old age to 14 and keep their AI agility though. There isn't anything else, I could think of, that starting at 13 makes you weaker in, long term.
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.

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.
