IT TALKS - ROLEPLAY WITH IT! IF IT KILLS YOU, TRY ROLEPLAYING SOMETHING
|AC and Weapons
AC (armour class)
is a figure used to describe how protected your body is against
physical attacks. The better your AC the less damage that will be
inflicted against you. Weapons come in various types: pierce, stab,
pound, crush, hit, slash, cleave.
When you make your character,
you will be asked to choose an alignment, good, neutral,
or evil. If you choose to be good, you must do exactly that of having
a good mind. Good aligned players kill only evil mobs. If a player
kills a neutral or good aligned mob (innocents), then their mind
will become more evil. Villagers from towns are usually good and
you will receive a stiff penalty for killing them. You may become
an outlaw and will not be able to rent or buy supplies from the
town. You may also be sentenced to death, depending on the circumstances.
You can check if a mob
is innocent by typing "con <mobs name>" If there is
nothing about affecting your alignment, then it's OK to kill them.
Killing innocent good/neutral mobs will result in you becoming evil,
unless the mob attacks you first. Any mob that attacks you will
not affect your alignment since you are simply defending yourself.
Killing evil mobs will NOT result in you becoming good unless your
true alignment is also good. Please see help confess for more information
on this topic.
|Food, Water and Resting
As mentioned above your
health/mana/stamina are not always as high as you could wish. When
you are low on one or more of these you'll have to wait for them
to raise. If you rest, these numbers will rise slightly faster.
You can also sleep which would allow you to regenerate the fastest,
although you will be unable to see who is in the room, which can
be a slight disadvantage. Eating and drinking is necessary in order
to survive. You can fill up containers by finding a well or fountain.
If you wanted to fill your waterskin from a fountain, for example,
you would simply type "pour fountain waterskin" to fill it
If you are becoming thirsty
it will tell you your throat is becoming parched. You will want to take a drink to
prevent becoming thirsty. If you do become thirsty, you will not
regen as fast, in fact you will hardly at all. If you abstain from
drinking for a long period of time, you could die from thirst. Eating
also goes along the same lines as drinking. You must eat in order
to survive. When your stomach rumbles, you will want to get something
to eat. You should have a few things of food at all times everywhere
|Health, Mana and Stamina
If you type score
(or just sc) you'll be given a small status report. When you first
enter the game you may want to type "display all". This will
show in order, your health percent, mana percent, and stamina percent.
The numbers are percentages and are not actual figures.
HEALTH: When you
are fighting you'll suffer health loss each time your opponent hits
you or casts a spell on you.
MANA: When you cast
a spell it'll cost mana - how much depends on the spell. The higher
level the spell, usually the greater cost of mana it will take to
determines how tired you are. It takes less stamina if you are walking
around flat areas, vice versa on hill tops.
|Kills and Consider
Before every fight, you
may want to consider a mob. This command will tell you if you are
more or less experienced than the mob you wish to battle. To consider
a kobold for example, simply type "con kobold", and you will
receive a message on what your chances are. If you want to kill
the mob, then type "kill <mobs name>". You also may
also see a message if the mob will affect your alignment. This usually
means the mob is innocent.
If you choose to kill an
innocent, you have to type "slay <mobs name>". Note:
If you kill an innocent mob you may receive certain penalties. Please
see Alignment on more information on this.
