Hello all. We've decided to make a change to the Point Bank system going forward. From now on, you may no longer donate real-life money for Point bank Points. All prior donations will of course be honored and have been awarded correctly. This is a going forward change.

I think we need to be clear. For the first time in site history, we've had a really big donation. This made us realize that it can lead to a significant advantage for a pc. While we will - of course - honor that, we really wouldn't ever want this to become an uneven playing field or "pay to play/pay to win" and so, we're taking away the PB rewards for making a donation. Pegasus (as the person who pays each month) is amazingly grateful to folks who donate, and she only ever uses the money to pay for the site/site stuff when it pops up (which it does). But that's the extent of it, and it should not (and from now on will not) infer any advantage IRP.

Alchemy & Knowledge


Hello all!

Two things!

1. We've updated the alchemy page to bring it in line with the Wealth System, and to clarify what's available at which Tier. Massive thanks to Doran, who put forward this suggestion.

2. We've updated the Peer Review Guide with a section on "Incomplete Knowledge Rewards" - thanks to Darius for that suggestion!

Going forward - if you're claiming less than full knowledge for a review (which many of us do ) - please consider just saying so in the review request - it helps our Peer Reviewers out enormously. Thanks so much!

Pegs.

New Point Bank List!!


The Point Bank List has changed! Please see here for an updated list of what is worth how much.
Oh no! Change! Ahh! What do I do!?
Ok.

1. If you have already claimed something - it's claimed. It's done. You've had the points for it. New points are going forward.
2. If, however, we've added something here that you have never claimed (like - getting Adored status in your Mark - Reaching GM in a skill) - you can claim for it retroactively.
3. If you are unsure what size a piece of Dev is - we'll have a look!

Hope that's clear!

Ensorcelling
Image


Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to announce the introduction of a long awaited skill. As of this moment the Ensorcelling magic is open for play! With this branch of magic, players will be able to refine the magical powers of the various wells found across idalos, and use them to craft powerful magical items. Special thanks to Prae for formating and uploading the entire thing onto the wiki earlier today, and to everyone who gave feedback on the development of this project.

If you have a read of this skil and think "Wow, wells are awesome. I'd like to develop a well myself" never fear! New development submissions for wells can be posted and reviewed in the Creating the World forum. A template will be added very soon.

Have fun!

Regards,
Trouble

FLIGHT OF THE DRAGONS


Boy has it been a hot minute. And I do apologize for the delay, there was some IRL shenanigans on my end that slowed a lot of things down. BUT. We've finally got the Dragon Q&A video uploaded and ready for y'all to watch.



More information on Dragons, and related development, will be coming before the end of the month.

Combat Update!


Thanks to a whole ton of hard work by Praetorum and with input from a number of volunteers - we've got an update to the Combat Skill, here.

What we've done is:

1) Removed the exotic school from the weapon skills, and reassigned its members to the closest existing school.

-- If you have the Exotic Weapon school - you may reassign points and knowledges to the school that exotic weapon ended up in.
-- Please PSF if an exotic weapon was your FT skill.

2) Removed the thrown school from the weapon skills, and reassigned its members to the closest existing school.

-- If you have the Thrown Weapon skill - you may reassign knowledges to the school their thrown weapon(s) ended up in. In this situation, points are refunded.
-- Please PSF if thrown weapon was your FT.

-- Thrown weapon proficiency is now determined using a knowledge system like 1/2 handedness (3 knowledges at novice, 3 more at competent )

3) Added in the rule that you can use weapon skills for improvised weapons at one skill level lower than the nearest appropriate skill..

Hello players, we have a new update to the Mount skill for you today. It was previously very confusing, and we got a lot of complaints about the way it was supposed to work. We've since devved an update to the specializations of mount skill, and think it's much clearer now.

As ever, if you have questions, please direct them to the Q&A forum.

Here are the changes to the specializations. Thank you!

Hello fellow players! :lol:

We've made some clarifications to what exactly a Legendary Mount is, which will be greatly useful as now more and more players reach that level of renown. Please have a look and as always if you have questions, please visit the Q & A Forum
Regionally Renowned. All PCs at this level receive a Legendary Mount, which must be approved through the PSF. A legendary mount is a one-off / one-of-a-kind example of an existing animal. It must be an existing, developed animal at the time of submitting the application and should be unique in a non-powered manner. So, for example, a flying goat or a glowing scalv-wing steed. Legendary mounts may be assumed to have high levels of animal intelligence and are of excellent condition and excellent training.
