People can discuss/post whatever they want as long as it's not carrying over to RL harassment.
Things that are fine: Complaining/outing characters or players Discussing how Vanth is probably mentally ill Posting IG secrets/information regarding active clans or players (soandso is a coded vampire and can be insta-killed by 'dispel magick') Making fun of Nessalin for being a geek
Things that are not fine: Posting specific information intent on carrying harassment over to real life - phone numbers, addresses, places of business, etc.
You suffer a penalty to defense. Meaning you will be more likely to be hit AFTER blocking/parrying is taken into account. However I dont really know the formulas all that well compared to other people. Doesn't seem right that you automatically hit every time if the person doesnt have the skill. I'm sure parrying is calculated still on some level. It also means you will be more likely to reel/crit people with that defense penalty.
Using advanced weapon skills are PERFECT for warriors. Why? Because other classes do not have those weapon skills. Not having a weapon skill means you are unable to properly defend it.
Let's say I'm advanced in piercing, bludgeoning, slashing and chopping. That means I will be able to better defend against attacks using ANY of those variants.
However, if my attacker is using a polearm and I have NO experience in using one, they have a significant advantage.
Polearms increase your parrying ability. Razoring destroys armor. Pikes are apparently terrible. Tridents might do heavy damage, that is just a guess though. Knives maybe increase your speed, that is just a guess though.
Just going off what people have said on this forum. It would be nice if we could flesh what we know in this department.

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.
