The Case of the Black Bear's Hatchet Recently in my endeavors, I came across a black bear in the mines underneath an inactive (but deeded) settlement. I engaged in combat with the bear, and during my fight, I somehow activated ranged combat by accident. Some backstory: before entering the mine, I was felling some nuisance trees which had grown in front of the mine entrance (it was long abandoned) and the hatchet (rare, 92ql, 90 enchants - a very nice hatchet) was still active. So whenever I engaged in ranged combat, the hatchet, of course, was first to be thrown. The hatchet struck the bear square in the shoulder! A few more wacks from my steel staff, and the bear was dead. It was then I noticed that my hatchet was no longer on my toolbelt and I realized my mistake. I looked around, and sure enough, the hatchet was square inside the black bears corpse. So I went to grab it and be on my way, but nope. "That would be very bad for your karma and is disallowed on this server". So I looked around and I assumed the problem was the fact that the bear I had just killed was on a player owned deed, and since I threw the hatchet, the player who owned the deed now owned my treasured rare hatchet. This assumption was later found incorrect. Queue me calling in the GM's via support ticket, and panicking about the possibility of me never seeing my precious hatchet again. Alas, after a long 30 minutes, the fabled Enki showed up. He explained that the hatchet no longer belonged to me, and it was not owned by the deed holder, but in fact, became the black bears hatchet! The bear was dead, how is that possible? But it was true. Enki grabbed the hatchet right from the bears now stiff paws and handed it back to me. But the whole encounter got me thinking. If this is the case in this accidental scenario, how would anyone actually use ranged combat on purpose if things like this come up. In my opinion, it would deter me if I was throwing weapons on purpose. You could theoretically use a thrown weapon (think throwing daggers) with the caveat that you would never receive the weapons back again. They become the creatures possession, yes, even after death, which defeats the purpose entirely. My suggestion: Allow thrown weapons to retain ownership to the thrower, and not be transferred to the victim. It makes logical sense (A dead bear cant possess much of anything) and it enables a new style of combat - ranged fighting without the use of a bow. Alternative suggestion: Disable the option of throwing items. Using a bow is one thing, but the throwing of previously selected hatchets is simply not feasible in a combat scenario, even if it was by accident. What does the Wurm community think? ~Lei
right now the amount of dye items need makes no sense for example a sailboat needs 5,4kgs of dye a large cart 25kgs and a bulk storage bin 128kg, and most items people wants to dye depends on an item that was never meant to exist (the fountain containers). so there is no doubt that it could be much better,and i think now that wood textures are going away would be a good time to rethink the amount of dye items need maybe even allow painting directly from containers using the crafting gui or something.that would solve the problem not having containers that are meant to paint big objects.
After going through the 5 easy things for PvP thread and seeing the BL need PMK suggestions I took a step back and realised that this was one of the few hard coded things we cannot change as players. I'm always against hard coding where possible and of course that led to this suggestion. It comes in several parts The first is the splitting of the white light, one light for each god. Splitting means a Green Light of Fo, a Blue Light of Vynora, a Red Light of Magranon and of course the Black Light for Libila. Each god gets to be represented as an individual. This will offer up some tactical decisions for kingdoms as outlined below. The second is that religion becomes an individuals choice totally unrelated to to the kingdom you are a part of. When creating the kingdom the whole template thing is dropped. You just make a kingdom and then make of it what you will. This means that each kingdom can legitimately have priests/followers of all four gods. Things like Libila's mycelium influence still stands and her followers can still leech the stuff for sustenance. The third is that the lights are more "involved" with each religion. No building or terra-forming would be allowed within the influence of any of the lights but priests of the appropriate faith within a kingdom could pray and sacrifice to their god at the primary altars. Sufficient effort here grants some small bonuses to those of that faith within the kingdom. It could be as simple as all casts come out +1 power or no shatters. There could be different effects for different gods. The prayer and sacrificing has to be sustained over time to keep the benefits. Efforts from the same faith of another kingdom can wipe those benefits out and they can then try and gain them for themselves. Any kingdom can have a champion of any faith, they simply need a good enough priest to step up. Alternatively if the kingdom template still enforced a "primary" god as part of the kingdoms character, then only priests of that primary god could champion. To then create a "BL" PMK the majority of the population simply choose to be Libila followers. All kingdoms already keep opposing priests for casts, stuck in caves outside of their kingdoms this removes that artificial get around and the priests can be full members of their kingdom. Caveat : - With all spells available within a single kingdom it might be necessary to review some with a mind to balance. - The rules for mycellium spread may have to change. - Other? there is always an other......
