ok, my current mission is to beat the sumo and see what I get (no spoilers please). but I'm not sure the best aproach. for example, how can unarmed combat stand up to armed combat?
I BEAT GENETRIX VESSENA unarmed once, with ommel tooth armour. my proudest ivan moment. but whats damage and accuracy numbers? we shoud have a weapons skills guide and bestiary here .

My way:
Dress up in some armor, equip banana peels as weapons, and kill stuff until you have like 30-40 Dex. It will then be a matter of seconds to kill the sumo wrestler.

But there are better methods. And I think they've been mentioned earlier today?
Well I assume that a bolt has a given, numeric, amouunt of perwer. (assi in enegri)... unless it's LAERSER SKISKLS POEWN PEWN!

I believe tame mystic dark frogs keep casting invisibility and haste quite regularly on you when you are near them although you don't recieve any message, did anyone else noticed this?

if you equip banana peels you dont get to level up your unarmed combat skill though.

Indeed, you level up your dexterity which helps quite a lot more and moreso in the long run than high unarmed skill.

Also, don't double post.

No, but unless you have massive leg strength with which to kick down the walls, you won't be getting to them any time soon.

In my wizmode tests I have found that massive leg strength only goes so far; it is not possible to kick down some walls even with, say, 200+ leg strength. For example, while said strength helps with kicking down the stone walls of the Cathedral you really need to have enchanted boots of kicking equipped if you want to do it within a reasonable number of turns.

Perhaps a test of how much the enchantment power changes the LStr required to take out a wall in one kick is in order, hmmmmm.

do walls take cumalitve damage like a limb? or is there just a 1:X chance of breaking the wall depending on Lstr/Equip?

I think it's a combination. If you're not strong enough, you'll do no damage at all, similar to the wall having armor or block skisls. If you're strong enough, you'll do cumulative damage. Not sure though, but that's how I always imagined it worked.

wierd so if you do more than x damage the remained is applied as damage to the wall until it breaks, where x is the strength of the material?

Something like that. Maybe. It's also possible that if your Lstr is above a certain value, there is a chance, depending on the Lstr - value, that the wall will break on every hit. But I'm quite sure you can't slowly wear down a wall if your Lstr is low.

I'm pretty certain you can in fact wear down a wall given the "no effect" text received when not strong enough vs. the wall/tree/boulder and the lack of such text when stronger.

Go SoCM your leg to something ungodly strong maybe?
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.
Ivan find mounting on ass funny.

i rarely get into the arena, but if my memory serves me correcdtly socm'd limbs revert to normal in the arena correct? so even if i made my legs adamant, they would be normal in the arena.

Nope, I just tested it. You keep your artificial limbs in the arena.

The game actually makes two mirrored characters, one is the player, while the other is the sumo. The mirrors are then transported into the sumo arena. The spectators, on the other hand, are transported directly to the sumo arena without being mirrored first.

Wow, you're right. They survive whatever happens in there too, somehow.

so did you "win" the arena by killing the tourist? I think that was what originally suggested back at the root of this thread
Booooooooooo!
