If I can use all my expendables every fight and have full power right after combat… that seems broken .. Why even have power regen as a thing, just turn it into stamina bar with another color.. and let it come back right after I drop combat..

PvP would be interesting if I could use biting gaze, hold monster. Mass hold monster.. Chain lighting, improved force missile.. every 30 seconds and not worry about running out of power during a 1.5 hour pvp window..

Hey, I'm totally happy with all that's going on smile. It's all part of the game. I've said forever you don't need "reasons" to do things, just do what you want, and you guys did. Plus, for once I don't really care what side wins (not that any side may be trying to "win" yet), I just get to enjoy the forums smile
Same here - was happy to sit in my room and drink my tea! Tried to do that in character.. and speculate on motivations… because i didn't see this coming I failed .. now ill just watch – tig you have extra popcorn?

- OOC @Caldeathe Baequiannia .

I didnt see this coming!! this is Tuffon reading the news of the day and trying to do so in character.. If you prefer for me to just go into what i think of it and leave the character stuff out .. fine .. but why start this in a role playing thread?.. ( i probably wouldn't of even responded in another location.)

.. I might not be as good at this RP as some of you but when responding to a RP thread i at least try to leave the BS! reply out of it…

All that stuff you listed as behind the scenes that you went through was not on these forums or in game .. ?
Was just trying to have fun with it.. you dodge and evaded..

Tuffon opens up the daily dispatch and reads the news of the realm..
.. he makes some mental notes and scratches his head..
*
He circles a few lines by cald…… .. he can never pronounce that name and has given up..
“I'm under the impression the bandits we identified were supporting the settlement and company that had holdings. Is that not correct? “
Tuffon scans the announcement at the top .. and sorts through the piles of mail over the past few days.. yet he doesn’t seem to find the identity of any bandits.. no announcements were made, no warnings were given no chance to stop an attack or diplomacy seems to have been tried at all ..
If you are actually proposing that diplomacy is the an appropriate way to handle banditry, I think you're on the wrong map.
.. Tuffon reads the quick reply.. and shakes his head..
He thinks about what it was like being a lone elf growing up in the world wound. He thinks about the power creatures that ruled his every waking moment and haunted the ones he had when he slept…
He writes his reply with care..
Cald…. ( he still cant even get the rest of that right..)
Diplomacy is preferred to bullies always.. you interrupted a group that was trying to make their own place in the world as you and your allies have done many times…
Certainly you can see the difference between voicing your displeasure about some behavior in your lands and journeying to the other side of the map to ruin someone’s plans of expansion..
With no notice who these people are or warnings of what their actions might bring.. the only real thing I see as a third party is a group that was looking for any reason to stop the expansion of another. Banditry had little to do with your motivations.. it was just the easiest excuse you could muster to stop another group from expanding..

Tuffon scratches his head again .. wondering who could of provoked such an attack.. It wasn’t his old mates .. while a few have reappeared they certainly weren’t around the west the past few days because they were having drinks with me …..
Tuffon had fought off some bandits during the last few days in and around his new home Callambea but while the bandits that came by were certainly enthusiastic they were lacking in their ability to actually take anything by force.. ..

Hmm Perhaps they identified them to just their members..

Tuffon takes a sip of tea and reads the remainder of the attached messages.. He coughs up the hot liquid and slightly burns his throat as his eyes read the next line from one of those goody two shoes paladins that are now his northern neighbor..
“We all feel that bandits are fun and add spice, that doesn't mean they get free pass cards when they annoy. Part of what may be fun about having them is trying to discourage them from your area.”

Tuffon glances at the map… and wonders exactly what ambition lies in the hearts of those altar boys up north… if they consider that tumbleweed of a town their area.. what does that mean about my new home that is less than half the distance away ..

No clue if its worth it I wouldn't do it .. but if something is possible you can bet it has been done or is being done.. If you know you can get a guaranteed 4-8 in an hour compared to perhaps a chance at half that number i imagine some folks would take the sure thing even if it was utterly boring..

There are many things that are broken with trial accounts ..
Influence being 1 major issue.. that said I have my own company and I do have 2 1 k alts in my roster but they are on an account that is subscribed ..
Next issue is being able to create characters to do the tutorials in order to get the maneuver/expendables .. Imagine some folks have already been doing just that to farm the maneuvers/ expendables needed to create buildings.. at the very least these should be a no trade tag..

Cant say I agree with that in anyway shape or form..
Cleric power is super broke.. and hopefully not intended that everyone gets to do that eventually.. if you are right .. why not just have power regenerate to full like your stamina does.. once you are out of combat.. for 20 seconds just top it off automatically.

Basically that is what you are asking for if you want everyone to have the same regeneration capability that exist right now on clerics.

Could of been mistaken, but i thought there was a conversation recently about OV 's confrontation with Freevale and Aragon .. at least i thought there was… you guys were fighting each other, folks came up from down south and sort of ended the conflict.. if that was not with you sorry.. but it was with someone.

Did not mean to imply OV and Aragon were forming an alliance .. was meaning to draw a connection between how the southern groups came into that conflict, with no official Alliance.. and was wondering if the same thing would happen if EoX comes back and Phaeros comes back.

@ Thorgrim
I could be wrong but Phearos had already said multiple times there would never be an agreement with EoX. They were in the EBA as was Sylva. Anything short of Sylva leaving the EBA ( as long as the EBA was intact) had to be the starting point of any agreement to stop fighting Sylva..

Like i said many times I was just a worker bee.. didn’t get involved with the policy discussion just showed up to blow stuff up and fight when able. Yet it makes sense Phyllain would make leaving the EBA the starting point of any agreement because a deal with Phaeros was out of the question..

Think the more intriguing stuff will happen if EoX and Phearos return with the news of the investors.. The EBA is dissolved.. You guys in the SE are still close friends and allies. It remains to be seen what would happen if the former members of the EBA would show up to help defend Phaeros items of interest from EoX..

Think that goes more into the alliance discussion OV and Aragon had a few days ago..
