I'm thinking about getting some of the threads posted up soon.

What do you all think about having a riddle to solve to earn some VCoins right from the start?

Hey, I like that, I'm decent at riddles. I did have a question of Combat though. Some of us might want to run away sooner than "nearly dead" I was wondering if we could base run away on the margin of failure, say, 5% of health lost per point? Kind of make it tactical, so that maybe we can run back on lower health losses, take risks, simulate "kiting", that sort of thing?

Is that too mathy?

Well there are no actual numbers.

So basically, if you rolled within a couple points just over the victory line then you could write that you used a kiting technique to achieve victory.

The reason for this is precisely because I don't want to make it too mathy. But it makes a bit of sense if you barely win then yes.. you get beat up and yes you take a lot of damage and you use your skills and tactics to achieve victory.

Alternatively if you rolled just a couple points under and lost then you fought hard and came close to victory but had to get away at the last minute or you finally ended up losing.

A wide margin(winning/losing by a number of greater then 5 points) of victory or defeat would translate into losing badly or winning easily - depending of course on if you won or lost.

I hope I explained that clearly. I might add this question and answer to the Simple System post.

Why not go with NC Exotic System Small Groups?
That is precisely then what I'll do unless something else comes up.

Quote
It seems the most sensible in a game where PvP is allowed, as PvP is rarely a consensual thing between characters (although it needs to be between players).
Well, PvP is going to be very limited as most worlds will not allow PvP.. so any PvP that does occur will need to be very intentional with a conscious choice of traveling to a PvP enabled zone. Although there is some rivalry for winning the game that can take place involving no actual physical fighting.

Quote
Because, as with your other VERY useful list (that I have used once again, fairly recently), it is something that would be useful to many other players!
Where would I put it? And is it really that useful of a "simple system?"

Quote
When you say "No weapons", does that include my claws?
Claws are always useful in a combat zone.

It's going to be amusing to see the characters react when they realize that they have no powers/skills/items/weapons/equipment/VCoins etc...
How literal should I take that? are we talking gear of some use or has the system gone all out in the fan service department, thus allowing us to start off actually naked if we click the little uncensor button?

Since this is an adult forum.. I'll go with "naked as the day your avatar was born"...

Translated: Fully nude.. or in Silverfyre's case.. completely furry.

I would like to check out this touching of the seating surface for myself. Purely for academic reasons or course.

Okay, question time. Did our characters also get stripped of all their gear and stats at the time of Parisa's announcement? Or is that going to happen in the near-future?

Yes, thank you for reminding me. I'm going to update the initial post in WikiTube World with that information.

I made a few posts... already to get it started so you can start posting any time.

I'm going to make a post soon in WikiTube about Blue's initial reaction too here shortly.

Go ahead anytime.

Moraline, I know I'm being a pain, but... I changed Silverfyre's avatar! I'm really sorry. I was looking for naked kitties and that one is just SOOOOO CUUUUUUUUTE! I couldn't resist her.

I'm really sorry!
