What I'm arguing is that there's not any valid reason to suddenly be worried that every single person in game is going to be killing you with a rageboner made of magick. People had perfectly good rageboners without magick
Necroing the thread: Does anyone know if using an archery dummy actually improves archery with misses?
Not positive, but my guess is that you can. I know I've ground out throw, kick, and bash on dummies. For non-passive combat skills like that, dummies are by far the best way to raise your skills because you will crit fail / get reversed every. single. time.
Practicing against a live sparring partner? Ineffective. Call me in 20 days, n00b.
Practicing against an immobile dummy that my 95 year old grandmother could school? Basically the blooper reel at the end of a Jackie Chan movie. You'll be a stud in no time.
Next time just google "Armageddon MUD" and click the first link.
The best thing about this is that it's true.
One experiment I've always wanted to run in Arm was a priority wis Warrior. I know I've seen elves come into the Byn with their low str and high wis and agility, and by the end of their runner year they were kicking the shit out of the Veteran troopers by dint of actually being able to skill up. Has anybody tried something like that? I'm sure you'll never be one of those epic top 10 (we had to raise it from top 3 to top 10 because everyone has the life span of a sorceror king these days) warriors, but it could be a fun experiment. Maybe everyone can boggle at your advanced weapon skills.

About a year ago I had a character who never used kick or bash in sparring and only did it vs the training dummy, and I notched the skillz up to Jman. I think I've done throwing vs dummy before and found it to work, but I honestly can't recall the character, so I'm not positive about that one.
I once got chewed out for using them on a dummy by an animated NPC, I got in trouble because my elf was determined to knock that dummy down someday, and one day, he did... the slaves were all angry with him, as was the Kuracci Sergeant that showed up. Needless to say, I never bashed a dummy after that.
"grumble is actually a psychotic 40+ something weirdo who lives off the government doll and does nothing but play armageddon all day every day. he has no aspirations, he has no real meaning in his life. only armageddon, getting drunk, and having bizarre pseudo-relationships with the people who play with his characters, of which there is no line between reality and fiction. he exclusively plays elves. i cant make this stuff up." -topkekm8s
vex: Like, going backwards on the karma scale, or just plain having karma at all, wtf. Ridiculousness, is the fate of everything related to Arm, I guess.

psyxypher: I'd be ashamed of myself if my bad experiences stopped you from /at least/ trying.
Mar 27, 2020 0:15:17 GMT -5
psyxypher: Though, I would like an alternative to Karma. I've come up with a few.

nile: not arm does a lot of call outs for crafts etc...tough to be one as your subguild but it shouldn't be your main focus either. i also tend to find them just useful for coins etc really...that said, not arm is far more accommodating if you want shit done

psyxypher: Would be nice if when you use the Craft command to see recipes you could make, that you could piece together what other ingredients are. Right now I'm flopping between trying for another character or seeing if I can weather this out.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:04 GMT -5
psyxypher: Both sound like pretty terrible options, to be honest.
Mar 27, 2020 15:08:17 GMT -5
vex: If you aren't having fun with it, do something else. Why waste leisure time, on something not making you happy? It makes no sense at all.
Mar 27, 2020 15:36:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: Mainly 'cause I'm worried my next character will be even less fun....but you're right.
Mar 27, 2020 17:26:41 GMT -5
psyxypher: Is there a board for ideas you'd want to add to the game?
Mar 28, 2020 18:52:21 GMT -5
nile: use the 'idea xxxx' command
Mar 30, 2020 4:22:28 GMT -5
psyxypher: I like having all my crazy ideas in one place. And getting feedback.
Mar 30, 2020 21:51:53 GMT -5
explayer: You can't count on the staff to read GDB threads. If you want a record of your ideas, submit them one by one using their request tool.
Mar 31, 2020 3:16:47 GMT -5
psyxypher: Again, I want some feedback from players before I put the ideas in.
Mar 31, 2020 9:22:24 GMT -5
explayer: Yeah, good luck with that. The GDB hates anything that isn't proposed by the staff.
Mar 31, 2020 13:01:21 GMT -5
vex: They also hate anything, that IS proposed by staff.
Mar 31, 2020 17:45:33 GMT -5
vex: Basically, the GDB is a shitchute spectacle of the worst kind, and you should respect yourself more, than to actively seek their opinion on anything.
Mar 31, 2020 17:47:28 GMT -5
vex: And you can pretty much count on them censoring, just about anything you post, that upsets one of their discord sluts, too.
Mar 31, 2020 17:49:32 GMT -5
psyxypher: I gave up on Arm a /long/ time ago. Like, sometime around Hasan's death, to be precise.
Mar 31, 2020 22:59:08 GMT -5
jkarr: did u run with hasan back then
Apr 1, 2020 9:57:56 GMT -5
psyxypher: Not at all. I was a turbo-noob back then.
