The /vm/ Ruins & Riches server has returned, this time on the Adventurers of Akalabeth fork. Unlike other forks, AoA is mostly bug fixes and QOL tweaks. Of particular note is being able to craft in bulk and get skill increases from each item crafted. You can check out all the updates and download the client (link in the discussion tab if you don't have a servuo account) here: https://www.servuo.com/archive/adventurers-of-akalabeth.2014/
I did revert the strange portal change. Having a return portal is gay and misses the point.

I've also made some other changes to keep the content from getting too easy too quickly. First is magic damage against monsters is reduced from 200% to 125%. Second is removing the 20% drop chance for messages in a bottle that all sea creatures get. This made it far too easy to sail around or go to sea dungeons and hoard treasure maps for artifacts. Now just like base UO you can only get them from fishing, krakens and leviathans.

Changes from default settings:
>stat gain every 10m instead of 15
>vendors always buy rare items
>need line of sight to see mobs
>player corpse bones persist for a year
>no hunger/thirst inside banks, inns or houses
>all creature races start as evil
>vendors have a chance to sell crafting resources

To connect, change the IP in settings.json to 15.204.209.63. The server is in Virginia and it was fine for eurofags last time.
>>
>Some hermit spent the last decade (probably more) turning UO into his own sandbox adventure game so you can enjoy it alone or with a small party
>It's very focused on exploration, it's a bunch of new world maps filled with towns and dungeons, you have to look for clues to figure out the paths between worlds.
>A lot of skills were rebalanced or extensively changed so they aren't completely useless.
>For crafting professions, if you acquire a house you can open up a shop and get crafting contracts.
>There isn't a storyline, quests are all random. Quest boards in town can give you random contracts like killing a lizard in a dungeon you've never heard of. You can also find epic quest books asking you to collect a bunch of unique items nobody knows where they were buried. You can listen to the random NPCs dialogue in town to sometimes get hints at where things are located.
>Resurrecting eats away your skill points if you can't pay the tribute, the traps in dungeons are brutal (I've had one reverse my karma once so I had to live in spooky town underground for a while as good-aligned town guards hated me), there are random portals in the overworld that can send you deep into hell or summon demons to rip your asshole in two if you're not careful
>I tried hosting it locally to play with friends and we had a good time, the world is really big so you can all do your own thing if you want to. Adventuring in groups is also fun as you can cover your asses in case someone gets fucked by a trap or a boss, we've had to organize a few rescue operations to recover the corpses of characters that made bad decisions. There's a lot of funny builds you can try out, depending on your character origin you can also get higher skill caps to expand possibilities

Oh also I recommend using the TazUO client. It has grid containers and other QOL stuff. Just download it from https://github.com/bittiez/TazUO/releases and replace the files in the AoA client directory.

Touch it.
>It starts slow AF, but once you get your first artifacts, you snowball into a gigachad.
This, but also you shouldn't approach this like a typical UO shard. Think of it more like a sandbox Ultima VII. There is a TON of shit to discover and you're well rewarded for exploring. The game world is huge. Read the PDF that came with the game, because Djeryv explains exactly what this game is and what it isn't. If you are used to modern games that tell you to go to point A, to B, to C then this ain't it.

>There are many other different elements that you will have to discover on your own. If you enjoyed tales of Conan or Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. If you played older D&D games where characters were in constant danger. If you like older computer role-playing games and want to play something where you simply exist in a fantasy world, then go ahead and give this a try. It was designed to play many different types of character classes, instead of the common ones most people play. You can be a very effective adventurer being a necromancer, alchemist, bard, thief, or assassin. You will get the most out of this game if you try different professions and see how you can navigate the dangers with them. There are a ton of things to do so you just need to pick a path and go as the only goal of the game is what you set for yourself.

>>1216193
Joining a guild makes the skills associated with the guild go up faster. For example the Warrior guild skills are Swordsmanship/Tactics/Parry. You can also switch guilds for gold, but each time you switch the cost increases.

Is it there a way to make guards as strong as a dragon, instead of making em gods that kills stuff in 1 hit? I want to get revenge on the society that hunted me once shit hits the fan.
>>
Lemme tell you a couple of three things.
>You can have 2 accounts per IP.
I originally had it set to 1 because I think having 2 characters logged in at once goes against the spirit of this thing, but people are going to want more character slots eventually and it's not a competitive server (although I'm not against PKing) so who gives a shit if someone wants to macro 2 characters all day. Go nuts if that's how you want to play.
>You can no longer sell bolts of cloth/balls of yarn to NPC vendors.
This was a setting that AoA added and I like it. Cloth farming trivializes the early game gold scarcity and remains more profitable than dungeon diving for quite a while. I haven't even created a character yet so I haven't taken advantage of it before making the change.

>>1216528
Possibly. I'm thinking of doing random events in the future, like monsters invading towns. Obviously that won't work with godlike guards.

Loaded an older save and here's my quest log right before the final boss.

>>1220381
wasn't breaking the statue for one of the 3 crystal objects you need? it's either that or it also gave a key to one of the gates in the sewers. I think after I explored that big triangular castle with the statue and the keyword for the emerald gate I went into the sewers to get into mangar's tower but I'm not 100% sure if I'm remembering correctly.

The silver object in Kylearan's tower was from a chest guarded by a dragon and Kylearan himself gives you the key to the sewers.

I reached out to the host about this. The interesting thing is that it always does it in the early morning hours EDT. In the meantime I've set the server up to autostart on reboot and the next time I restart the server save frequency will be every 20 minutes.

After searching r*ddit as a last resort according to one post you use the tree key to get into the room where Kylearan is.
I don't recall any text popping up when opening that door but I've been backtracking everywhere and couldn't find shit so I'll just accept that as the truth.

are mages bad starting characters?
>>
>>1220992
It depends, if you go elementalist, you're quite op at the start, but mages, require resources scrolls and stuff. This said, mages are the most OP class on end game. They can spam powerful ancient magic spells at 0 reagent cost, and virtually infinite mp.
>>
>>1221042
Elementalists decay hard on mid game tho, since most high level mage monsters just dispel your summons.

So... full geared with dwarven ore gear.
>>
>>1221537
That is the best thing they added. For those who don't know, it's randomized starting skills/gear hardcore mode. When you die you start as a new character in a random starting location with new starting skills/gear. You don't get any bonuses from items except resists. Instead you can accumulate "soulforce" to attain item bonuses permanently and they follow you through death. Pretty cool system that adds some longevity to the game. Would be cool to get it working without all the other less good - to be kind - additions in UA.

pic related for baby first dungeon. Paladin is a good starter class, just keep in mind you need to first get some points into your weapon of choice skill and Tactics skill so you don't miss 9 out of 10 attacks. Game controls are easy, use mouse, configure some macros in either razor or ingame to give hotkeys to certain actions like healing yourself. Get some bandages from the priest and cure potions from the local alchemist (poison is no joke). Then you just kill stuff, explore the world, buy a boat, explore other worlds, read books looking for information regarding places and treasures, etc.
>>
Also, when you get enough gold and str, try to always carry a 10 foot pole so you can deactivate traps. Traps are another fun mechanic here, because they screw you so badly its fun.

you can hit some dummies in one of the buildings near the blacksmith to get a few early skill levels. after that you should probably hit some weak animals like birds and goats to get your weapon skill and tactics up so you have higher accuracy.

>Do not play this game if your play style is that which belongs on current Ultima Online servers. This game will disappoint you. There are no champion spawns, or other types of major events where mass players are involved. This is a game of living in a virtual fantasy environment, where you explore the lands and brave the dungeons to acquire skill, treasure, and knowledge. There are no safety nets, no item insurance, and death will cost you either trained abilities or precious gold. The dangers are more worrisome than simply death. If you find older style Dungeons & Dragons games unforgiving...this game isn’t for you.
>If you need detailed web sites, telling you every secret to this game. If you need to have a character with unlimited power. If you require a character to begin their journey with powerful artifacts. If you cannot function without a game that leads you from point A to B to C...this game isn’t for you.
>A mistake players commonly make is approaching this like an Ultima Online game. They felt that information was hidden from them when in fact it was freely available in the world. So treat this like an older Ultima game and not an MMORPG. Talk to NPCs and read the books or scrolls you find. Some information may be useless to you, but you may learn something about the world that becomes your next quest.

>>
This mfker is camping me.
>>
>>1223617
ok and which sword would be good for starter ?
>>
>>1223735
All weapons have perks. Early on they'll feel pretty similar other than speed (maces are slower). Later on you'll get weapon skills that do different things like armor pierce or multitarget attacks. Certain weapons in a category have skills which give them an advantage, I suggest picking whichever you think looks cool in a category (bludgeoning, fencing, swordsmanship) and you can find weapon skills you like within those categories later on. Swordsmanship has the largest pool of weapons so you'll probably find more weapons for it while exploring
>>
>>1223749
I seen that weapons have also durability how fast does it degrade and is it easy to fix the weapon ? (also can i duald wield rapier and starting dagger for bonus attacks ?) (im soon going to sleep so im curious for tomorrow what to try)
>>
>>1223758
NPCs can repair them but early on it won't be a problem because you won't be using them for too long before upgrading to one you find from a dungeon. As you progress you'll eventually find items with "Self Repair" on them which means they actually repair themselves a bit each time they takes damage so it slows down durability loss significantly.

bushido parry is op, don't you know about the famous reaper samurai build in vanilla UO? necro ethereal form + bushido. Dunno if that works here tho.

I spent a couple hours tinkering with the soulbound code and I think i can get it working. It's gonna take a while and I might hit some roadblocks since I'm not a programmer and i may change a couple things, but my impression rn is it's just going to be tedious transposition.
>>
>>1224065
Based. Is it an optional mode you select on character creation / gypsy hut?
>>
>>1224501
Yes. That's one thing I have to change because Adventures has a different character creation process. Simple enough though. I've made some decent progress on it today.

I've got soulbound working (mostly) on my local test server. There are some bugs and kinks to work out, but so far so good.
>>
>>1225242
Neat, what are the features of this "soulbound" race?
>>
>>1225249
>>1221920
>>
>>1225262
I think it will be necessary to tune up this "soulforce" thing scaling, since as a feature it was meant for a multiplayer version of RnR with stronger mobs in general.
>>
>>1225274
I meant "tune down".
>>
>>1225274
>>1225296
Yeah some tuning will be needed. In Adventures you can acquire a high resist (the only item properties that apply to you) starting set of armor at the beginning of each new life for less than the gold you start with. I won't be including that. There's also a modified soulbound only version of the basement shared space (where you get the aforementioned armor) which allows for risk free training of most skills with a dungeon skill gain bonus. We won't have that.
You gain soulforce for killing mobs at varying rates depending on mob difficulty. Soulforce persists across lives. Once you have 500 soulforce you can get a soul vault from an NPC vendor called a Blood Lich. The soul vault is "ensouled" (soulbound version of blessed item) and stays in your backpack across lives. You can then purchase essences from the NPC with soulforce. These essences apply permanent item bonuses (+hits, lower reagent cost etc) to your soul vault, which are then applied to you. You can upgrade your soul vault to store more essences, up to level 10. Lowering the max soul vault level and/or amount of essences per level would be the easiest way to balance it. I don't think we have to go too crazy though, considering you lose EVERYTHING when you die. House, bank vault, everything, starting over with 1k gold, basic gear and one of several 225 skill templates.

How do runes work exactly? I found a book about runes and it seems like they're permanent reagents (as an alternative to magery reagents) you use in a certain order to cast different spells. Is this correct or am I misunderstanding?
>>
>>1225507
No
You put a handful of them at a time in a rune bag. Then use the rune bag and it casts a spell with no reagents.

By the time you probably find the runes you need and a bag you probably won't need it.

Besides one niche use for them temporarily near the endgame

>>1225537

>>
>>1225634
except lower mana cost is already capped at 40%
so that would be a massive buff instead
this is why it helps to actually know the game before you "balance" it
>>
>>1226036
You got me. I was thinking of Adventures where the cap is 90.
>>
>>1226036
I think that reagents use reduction should be capped at 40% too.
>>
>>1226106
well, you are a retard
reagents aren't a meaningful game mechanic
it is shit that someone thought to include once because d&d did it in the 70s
all it does is provide a minor annoyance that you have to make sure you have enough before you leave for a dungeon
but running out in a dungeon isn't even a real concern because the game throws hundreds of reagents at you in every chest
it is like the hunger/thirst mechanic
someone thought it would be cool for RP
but it actually serves no purpose and it just a nusiance
you have some hateboner against spellcucks in the delusion that they are overpowered
but it doesn't really matter for them
the real classes that get fucked by changing LRC are the ones that don't even use reagents, but still benefit from it
those can't easily recharge themselves in the wild like spellcucks can and some of them are just retardedly clunky like deathknight
>>

>you have some hateboner against spellcucks in the delusion that they are overpowered.

I've spent all my gaming time this week toiling over merging the soulbound system. It was a bit more involved than just tedious transposition, but it's now running well on my local test server. There's just some housekeeping to do and a couple changes I'm considering. First, you always start a new life as the sex you picked at creation. Currently it's random. Second, I think I want to scrap the blood lich NPC and transfer its functionality to a soul item that remains in your inventory. This way you don't have to go to an NPC to spend your soulforce.

to be clear, Lower Reagent Cost isn't a percent reduction, it's a chance to not use reagents. if you're basing your knowledge of knight off of ingame experience and you're only just starting out, you're very likely to miss it working, but unless AoA specifically changed this and called out that it changed it, it doesn't really make sense to assume that it doesn't work for Knight anymore.

Not only was Tithe a reagent for Knights, but Jedi and Syth crystals are too, and they benefit from reagent cost as well.

You can literally go on for a solid 10 hour gameplay with 10k gold/tithe. What the fuck are you on about. 10k is like an antfart in the financial wind.

for the same reason we shouldn't cap quiver arrow use to 40%, there's a tangible goal in making sure you're not pulling your own pants down by accident for not packing 50 nuts of horse or not stopping by the shrine in your loot run.

on top of that, it feels empowering to cut them out of your main gameplay loop eventually, like how good it feels to eventually be generating arrows through combat instead of stopping by the fletcher you'd definitely never be visiting otherwise.

arbitrarily removing that aspirational goal from multiple classes because they... >>1226180
...do less DPS than the fighting skills that don't need the stat is weird.
>>
>>1228516
>...do less DPS than the fighting skills that don't need the stat is weird.
Melee classes are restricted by the attack speed cap. Wizards at some point can spam multiple spells per second. They just melt stuff with their summons tanking for them and dealing really good damage (necro summons cannot be dispelled). It just doesn't feel good that a wizard can cast spells faster than a warrior or a pugilist can attack, it feels so wrong.
>>
>>1228567
>(necro summons cannot be dispelled)
unless i'm mistaken, there's a few things that made that a nonissue last server, like any undead summon more complex than a small zombie sharing health with the necro (golems did this too)

i had dabbled in wizardry myself after getting to titan of ether off of just knightship archery and utility spells, and stopped trying to use spells for DPS after it felt like there was a (worse) cast speed cap than auto attacks. if there's just no cast cooldown at all anymore then the obvious solution would just be to... put it back
>>
>>1228567
just to be clear, what experiences are you basing this on? were you in the ruins and riches server or are you talking about stuff you see in other codebases?

the heaviest hitters in the R&R server were Terry Davis, a paladin, and me, a paladin archer who decided to go jedi for fun

if you're drawing on experience elsewhere can you say what it is clearly

There are both cast speed and cast recovery caps. Let's just play with these settings and see how it feels. Like I said nothing is written in stone.

Made some more progress on soulbound. In Adventures every time you die you get a new name/random NPC title befitting your template ("the burglar," "the barbarian"). This is cool thematically, but annoying practically, especially because client profiles are tied to character names. So I removed that. You will also always respawn as the sex you picked at creation.
The last thing I want to do is scrap the blood lich NPC and transfer its functionality to an item that stays in your backpack. Once that's done I'll roll this bitch out to the server.

Fought a lich at the top of a tower and found the magic mirror a book mentioned previously. I already knew the words I had to speak from the book I found in a dungeon on an island. I immediately appeared in a big dungeon and while the mobs didn't seem too bad there were so many and my bags filled up so I had to leave. Ended up finishing my exploration of the pyramid and got to the Isles of Dread. Went to a nearby town to sell some stuff and then sailed through the map looking for cool stuff and almost died to a Daemon and some Lizardmen. They kept casting on me while walking on water. Had to run away unfortunately and dropped to 10% of my health during the escape. Not sure how bricked I would have been if I died while on a ship. I think I'd have to grind out money for a new ship and sail back to loot myself?

With ClassicUO play on 2k with 125% windows scaling and a 4k with 200% scaling. Both of those should make UO look like you are on a 1080p screen. Adjust windows scaling to your taste.

If you are using the original client with steam or razor edit the exe properties like this so it responds to scaling.

Mortal guards and invasions for sure. Also a BOD rework. Both Adventures and Confictura have these things so I can just steal theirs like I did soulbound. I'm gonna take a break from big updates because I'd like to actually play for a bit though. In hindsight I probably should have focused on the BOD rework first.
Just a heads up on the other changes coming with soulbound:
>SDI cap vs monsters bumped to 150
>LRC capped at 75%
>Quivers nerfed
There was a miscalculation with the "damage modifier" property that makes high DM quivers way too OP. All quivers will get a flat damage modifier of 10 with the only exception being the Quiver of Rage, which always has a DM of 15. This will be applied to all existing quivers.

Was great for me. First time playing anything Ultima was on the old (R&R) server and the game does a real great job guiding you through things. Just gotta get in the habit of going through NPC dialogue or books. Also the singleplayer-ish nature of this version means you are typically capable of tackling anything the game throws at you.
Do watch a quick video on how the UI works though. Probably the biggest struggle for the first hour was trying to figure out how to play the game.

And we're back. Of course I just noticed an issue with the starting clothes for the soulbound wizard template. It's probably something stupid that I'm overlooking, but that's an easy direct edit of the script on the VPS once I figure it out. For now if you respawn as that template you'll start out missing a couple clothing items.
To make a soulbound character pick THE CHARIOT tarot card in the gypsy gump at character creation. Make sure you replace those art files in the last post.

R&R was a significantly more stable, coherent, and consistent experience. Enjoy having half of your item properties not working or straight-up lying (especially attribute point increases), having entire spell schools bugged and dysfunctional (ancient research, secret classes, etc.), enhancing a dwarven steel weapon actually damages its statline, partial weight reduction bags can ruin your character for days with fake weight, etc.

>You're gonna have to provide some receipts
Sure. Here's they are, live from the server, made with a default client:
Arti Helm - 20 Str Bonus, 5 Dex, 5 Int, gives none of those. I even upgraded the item during so that you can see that the stat increases just don't work.
https://files.catbox.moe/ogqru3.mp4
How about deceptive item tooltips and stats on weapons, like Dracula's Sword, with 20% hit chance increase and 35% damage increase, oh nvm, it's only +10% hit chance and 0 dmg bonus.
https://files.catbox.moe/t8o5d3.mp4
And then for contrast I provide a katana with 23% dmg increase, which actually gives only +3%
https://files.catbox.moe/odmgaz.mp4

Here's me messing around with items showcasing its stat increase inconsistent behaviour, equipping both randomly generated ones and crafted arti ones.
https://files.catbox.moe/lsu4r7.mp4

If it was only a visual bug, it would be ok, but those stats really are eaten up and don't apply to the character. When I have +20 str from gear, I can't equip gear that I need 5+ more strength for than I already have.
I believe from my experience, and that of other people, that the full item properties only fully apply after a server restart, and if you unequip them you'll lose bonuses from them until the next reboot.

Here are two videos with me messing around randomly with the alchemy rucksack and some bottles. I started at 1 fake weight, ended up with 2. I assume with a systematic effort this can be replicated >>1254803 (it wasn't the fault of bulk orders, at all, it just made this flaw more apparent)
https://files.catbox.moe/vwkj9t.mp4
https://files.catbox.moe/4mqoiz.mp4

And here's a video of me on my actual client bricking a +50% hit chance increase dagger with a extraordinary hammer, dumping it to +15% as soon as the hammer touches it.
https://files.catbox.moe/phhz65.mp4

I believe that more videos won't be necessary as with this I've made my point clear.

>>1279673
I don't think that's AoA, I think it's an oversight on my part in the onequip/unequip changes for soulbound. It's my fault, but damn how has no one else noticed this for so long? lol I'll see if I can fix it today

>but damn how has no one else noticed this for so long?
I think every active player noticed it, to the point that "QoL fork" and "god I love this game" became a ingame chat meme whenever someone stumbled onto a bug, its just that no one bothered to post in the spectre's thread once it closed down (or this one)

I wasn't testing it locally since I assumed that you weren't a dweeb (an assumption which I think is proven correct). Anyway, it doesn't matter now, it shouldn't be your code, as I've managed to replicate the exact same bug on my local instance of AoA https://files.catbox.moe/95jtsy.mp4
I'll be able to help out in a few days if you struggle or get stuck somewhere (if you're willing, ofc) , since currently I am on a trip and thus have no access to my tools. A simple diff-check and de-vandalizing the scripts should likely get it fixed.
>>
>>1279807
So interesting news. Spectre didn't abandon AoA, he just removed it from servuo and made a thread for it on reddit. Idk why he wouldn't announce that in the servuo thread but whatever. Can you post about this bug there?

If its not a bother, it would be really great if you post your findings there for Spectre. Also I would like to thank you for archiving your foundings. IT sure be great to actually sew some cloths with stat bonuses lel
Also, on an unrelated note, the server just crashed

Skara brae sucks. I have died more than two dozen times. The humanoids in the cellar are just too strong and i can only kill zombies,skeletons and other weaklings. No one seems to want to sell me armor or anything useful.
Atleast my hiding is 50 and I can hide from them around corners now.

And how do you even talk in public chat?
>>
>>1281151
Are you trying to do a Skara run with a new character? is that even possible?
>>
>>1281220
Well i got here at level 5 i am level 16 now. Maybe if something drops a proper armor it won't be as hard.

I never played this game before.
>>
>>1281220
You put [c before your message. What kinda build are you going for I'd be happy to bring you some starter gear.

>>
>>1281298
I dont really know. I am a necromancer, but i didn't get any spells yet.
I leveled taming slightly to 17, but i think some skills like that one are meant to be leveled with gold since leveling it takes forever.

50 hiding
50 necro
50 spirit
100 focus
40 swordmanship
10 parry
X tactics
And there are only enough points for 7 skills to 100 i read, so i don't have a lot of choices left.


Thanks for offering starter gear, but i'll just continue with the dungeon and complain in the thread when i feel truly stuck.

The limit is 10 skills normally, unless zombies got extra shafted somehow. It goes up to 13 if you decided to be an outlaw at character creation (and are thus barred from going into towns and shit), or 20 if you're an alien (but then you have stupidly high death penalties). There's also a super secret, super pain-in-the-ass quest that lets you get 100 in another 5 skills but that's basically the endgame.

As a fellow melee chud (though not the guy you're replying to) I would advise you get Bushido and/or Knighthood up at some point. Bushido gives you some nice temporary defensive buffs and a spammable attack that increases your hit chance, while Knighthood lets you tithe gold* at shrines to cast some useful spells (highlights: cure poison in exchange for some HP, restore some HP, make your melee weapon do whatever damage type enemies are weakest against, do way more damage against the next enemy type you attack, resurrect anyone nearby).
*Once you get 100% reagent reduction it no longer uses gold for spells

With your necromancy that high I assume you're going for negative karma which wouldn't play well with knighthood but after you find a book you can be a death knight. I didn't play much as one on R&R but iirc they had some interesting spells too.
>>
>>1281347
Ah that makes we less worried about all these skill points.
I didn't pick outlaw, i can enter a town, but guards do kill me on sight because i am a zombie.

I'll do the bushido route, i passed by some samurai training spot near yew before i got stuck here. I can only eat brains and they give -50 karma each, so positive karma is a no go.

Don't do this, its not worth. It doesn't only affects your social life, but also cuts your game content. I'm a criminal and i can't go to Skara Brae, not sure if bug or intended, but i cant do Skara, and it sucks.

I tried to empower my staff of ultimate power with the core of exodus when it crashed. I have everything still so I can attempt to recreate it if you want.

How do you train skills? Someone asks for 109 gold and i drag 109 gold onto him.

What am i doing wrong?

You're a criminal. Hanged man route is cucked af.
>>
>>1283759
I guess i will be saving my gold. Thanks
>>
>>1283766
If you went for the hanged man meme, just don't. Make another character, it really is THAT bad. You will not be able to do skara brae, and any quest that involves talking to certain NPCs. The disguise mechanic is cucked af tho, since game options are bounded to the character name, which means your options and UI will reset to default once you relog until the disguise effect is over.
>>
>>1283759
Fugitive start is great IF you have an already estabilished alt char with porting access and a house. Otherwise you are going to have a bad time.

maxiumum overal stat cap is raised by 50
from 250 to 300
and maximum skillpoints is rasied by 300 or 500, I cant seem to find correct information on this
>>
>>1283783
I guess this is fine. I reached a new obstacle anyway, the wizards i am supposed to kill at the end of the dungeon are too strong.

It did seem like everyone would talk to me? Unless it just a few specific npc's that ignore me.
>>
>>1215003
Oh, nice, I didn't know there were /v/core servers besides vidyascape. Any other ones?
>>
>>1283759
Basically, any "fugitive" or "criminal" route you take is hard mode, not because the game itself is harder, but just significantly more inconvenient, you do get better skill point cap thanks to it, though, which potentially makes you stronger. I recommend taking it after you get your first character situated and set-up, because its a major pain in the ass.

It's a transactional relationship. Kill enough of your fellow bad guys and you can eat this much brains.
