I read scrolls of detect material for iron to try and find the mines. but it doesnt always find them all. is the scroll limited by a radius, or do mines come in diffrent materials?

Also I was wearing a fireproof cloak which is supposed to help with mines, but my wands keep breaking, is there any way to keep this from happening?

finalluy I found the corpse of a former player and ate it. it told me that was an evil act, does this have a negative effect on my carechter?

Cloak only protects you, not your items. Put the wands into a chest to prevent them from exploding.

Eating human corpses makes you a bit more chaotic.

A belt of levitation is the best thing against mines. You just fly over them

I believe detect matieral is limited by your INT.

The Germans built them out of wood in the later phases of WWII.

But you don't have to worry about that in IVAN. Or do you...?

That'll be interesting. Wooden mines. Makes it impossible for a crazy intelligent character to see where all the mines are with a single scroll

The only way to make mines stronger is to change their value of power in the scripts. That's how I made my Super Mine. I blew The population of New Attnam, including Decos, away, with just a few of them.

Um...if you mean REAL nuclear landmines, the whole world map would be destroyed.

Nahhh. Just a good chunk of it. I doubt the world map is really THAT small.

Considering how long it takes you to get from one place to another on the world map (walking OR running) a nuke may very well NOT destroy the entire gameworld.

I'm sure for the dungeon a tactical nuke would work better.

Or hiring the A-Team led by Chuck Norris to do a sweep through the dungeons for you.

Chuck Norris and Mr. T walk into a bar. The building is instantly destroyed, as no structure can contain that level of awesome.

I think I see him in the picture! Right there, next to the squished thing, which is right next to the ruined thing, which is right next to that...other ruined thing. Wow. That's a tornado aftermath pic, I'm guessing?

Didn't you read? That's a Chuck Norris aftermath pic.

Besides, everyone knows there are no tornados, only shockwaves from Chuck Norris' feet.

I guess it is true. I have seen Walker, and that show is awesome. He freakin beat-down some knights at a circus in one episode.

So I'm having a bad knight!

Fine, I'll admit it, not all of my jokes will get KNIGHT responses from everyone.

Alright, enough stupid jokes. I'm messing up because I really have bad nights sometimes.
