NE and EL player stores doors' color

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:28 pm

Sometimes its VERY hard to find certain store if it's master didn't colored his entrance. It would be great to have NE and EL doors in different color.. May be lets EL would be white door and NE - grey?

Charisma rings

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:28 pm

There are no +charisma rings atm (only arts).. But actually its quite logical to has such rings by Tolkien lore :)

Maybe CHA/WIS rings?

Earthquakes and experience

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:28 pm

Earthquake is quite beautiful and interesting spell, but it doesn't have much use cause you don't get any exp for it. Its ok do not give exp for Genocide or Obliteration, but earthquake magic could be also dangerous for caster so I suppose it would be fair to give at least some % of exp from killed mobs to caster, for example 20%.

It would be great to make this kind of magic more popular.

Hungry status

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:28 pm

Sometimes it hard to notice when your char become hungry, especially for beginners.

Maybe add yellow blinking at @ when you hungy? For example, when you just become hungry it could flicker once per a 3 seconds, but as more hungry you become flickering could be more often.

Also some bigger roguelike ideas (already in /rfe):

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:29 pm

- add new movement mode to any class - silent walk... It gives some bonus to stealth but dramatically reduce speed (-20 for example)
- new class idea - berserk. very storng but with intrinsic aggro. Could wield two twohanded weapons
- convert normal houses to storage ones for 5kk (to remove exceed gold from the game -> reduce inflation)
- add another "life-saving" possibility - to fall down to next lvl(s). It could be like Probability travel magic, but more dangerous (so it woudln't be too imba). For example, scrolls of deep descent? Lets it _could_ get you deeper - when you use it, you come random depth (up to -500 for example).
- new macro: drop last taken item. wrote about it before, just wanna give some more attention cause it would safe loads of keyboard pushing and would make playing much more comfortable :)

// For some of this ideas I created separate topics cause they are important to discuss imho.

Food in roguelike

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:30 pm

- nerf scroll of satisfy hunger. lets they last less time (eat air.. its nice, but its too good atm) and make common food last longer
- give "buy food and drink" in Bree tavern temporary buff to HP (+5 for 30 minutes). It wouldn't ruin balance, but would make Bree more "alive" :)

Alcohol in roguelike

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:30 pm

- lets pint of wine heal 2d6 hit points (so it would be pre-light wounds potion-like item), but would cause some side effects
- lets alcohol would be a possibility to cure sanity! Right now it could damage it for 1 point. Lets make like this: there is 40% chance that alchohol would damage your sanity to 1 point and 60% that it would heal sanity at 1 point. The problem there (to make it not imba) - you can change your sanity only with first bottle, so while you already drunk - further drinking wouldn't change your sanity state - you need to sober first. So it would be possibility to heal sanity for new players :) Useful in IDDC too hehe

Give 2 and 3 shops some job

Post by tangar » Sat Nov 05, 2016 4:30 pm

Armourer and weaponer in Bree could work on equipment enhancing (till +10). Of course there are scrolls of enhancement in 5, but its the most crowded shop, so it would be fun to move some players from 5 to 2 and 3.

if its hard to create such service, may be its possible just put there scrolls of equip. enhancement? Its the most popular scrolls for new players
