I heard An Elite Midgaard Townguard yell while sleeping at the bank. help yell stipulates that the message yelled would be received only by those awake

It's a fake yell when given by the townguard, possibly. I think yelling in the same room should automatically wake you up.

monk hero skill. Undetermined name. If monk is tanking the mob and mob tries to flee, let monk get in a trip that prevents them from fleeing for that round. unsuccessful flee-trip causes typical trip.bash-lag.

Thrust - an attack that allows a person to attempt to thrust their weapon into an enemy. It can only work if you have your offhand free (i.e. no shield/offhand weapon), so that your free hand can help perform the thrust. Obviously, this won't work on enemies wearing heavy armor.

no

if lords aren't lords for most purposes on mid.. why are we lords for portal drain? i think lords should give portal drain equal to that of heroes

it's a double standard.

in line with dying and corpse retrevial, heros and lowmorts and lords who loose body parts during death should suffer penalties until that limb is missing (barring hearts breains heads etc.) could add hand/foot body part drop to limbs priests and clerics could reattach

not manageable at this time.

as lord gear works differently on midgard, have lord gear work better or worse on some lord planes. introduce new gear for lords to this effect.

too vague and broad.

new spell affect. Confusion: causes the affected person to have a 50% chance of attacking their fellow groupies. This 50% chance is on each attack during the duration of the spell. spells and midround attacks are also affected. other possible names, Delusion, Insanity, Psychosis, Brainfried.

with regard to the anti-requisite idea from last mailer. rather than applying it to existing spells/skills and forcing everyone to rebuild, code the possibility of incompatable skills for use with future skills and coding

so do a lot of code for the benefit of 5-6 new spells per year? no.

"negate": Embracing the very nature of destructive magicks, a sorcerer without fear of death can seek to undo their foe. lord level sor spell: the sor instantly dies, the mob targeted is "defeated", leaving no corpse.

I'm not a fan of the sacrifical kill spells which occasionally pop up time and time again.

mental frenzy would be a psi based spell which would add a set amount of dr to caster's stats. It would come at the expense of ac and/or save vs due to the psi being in such a mental state they would drop weapons more as a result, or could effect hp/mana regen

A flag on a room that prevents the use of teleport/portal/nexus/astral/mercy/gurney, basically any spell that can transport you out of a room. Kinda like translock I guess but then a room flag, since no-magic flag prevents all magic, and no-recall doesn't prevent transport out just recalling. And cursed flag is just for blocking entry to area. Noticed this idea was suggested before but the answer then wa

no_recall actually prevents more than just recalling.

further thoughts on blood ritual. Make the lord level blood ritual ii and actual ritual and make the size of the potion dependent on having more than one sor and their total hps.

so a ritual self only spell. A contradiction, yes?

ablution is only supposed to clear unnatural affects, right? it clears racial kick too
