Simply speaking your character is the most hated being on earth... almost EVERYONE wants to kill you.
Yeah but Id never be chosen as the save that is used... I am just not epic enough
Alright I have a very lame idea but I think it would be a rather funny joke
There could be an item called "Chicken Soup" that heals you and cures poison. (but has no chance to regrow bodyparts)
I am going to bow out of this arguement... I don't want it to become heated
"Where does it say each square is 5 feet? If that's true then the main character is 5 feet tall and 5 feet wide, and hedgehogs are 5 feet long."
-What is the point of this statement? I said over 5 feet and you seem to think I said "Five feet exactly". It is obtained simply by finding what fits in the square enemy wise and item wise. Though Height is a entirely different matter all together.
"have you ever shot a bow, crossbow, or a gun? You can't aim for shit unless you're standing still. Hell, you can't even string an arrow on a decent bow while moving unless you're a professional."
-This statement only proves that ranged weapons are difficult to use... especially on the run... but ineffectiveness of the unskilled isn't a sufficiant reason... Since you can still just load a crossbow... Unleash a bolt into someone's head... Then take out your short sword and slice them up... or heck if you have time hit them multiple times.
"guess what? In all the other siege scenes in the books and movies the archers are up on a wall firing from hundreds of feet away"
-Except for... you know... all the ones where Archers and Crossbowmen have been in the front lines for short periods of time.
--You have found a situation where they are useful... but it is hardly their only niche
---In fact the Mongols tended to use Mounted Skirmishers (ranged) quite a bit... part of the reason they were so effective.
Ranged weapons are not made useless in IVAN... You are only presenting reasons of why they wouldn't be the "Greatest weapon ever"
What do you mean? I like the idea of Ranged weapons...
Though I do agree that there could be more Wand Variety
The fact that if something is poorly done enough to get tossed into the "Spam" section means that technically only the "Spam" section is supposed to have unserious discussions.
In fact a "Serious discussion" section may just turn everything else into the "Spam" section
If you want only serious discussion with no sidetracking you could put it in your initial post.
"What kind of a retard brings a ranged weapon into a dark, dank, can't-see-more-than-10-feet cave?"
One who can obviously run faster then his enemies and pelt them with ammo? One who doesn't want to get into melee combat with his enemies? I am pretty sure that Legolas didn't drop his bow and arrows the second he went into the abandoned Dwarven home. (I think he was with them).
Though mind you that your not in a cramp cave... each square represents over 5 feet making certain rooms in the game larger then my house.
I mean it is hardly stupid to bring bows and arrows into the dungeons (Afterall, it would be like saying Strike wands are stupid since all they are is a strong ranged weapon)
Ohh I thought that heart was blood...
I ain't too interested mostly because I can't possibly compete with anyone... I don't Sci-talk period
