Re: AMC - The Best Network On Television

Wow, that's a bold statement. I get the same feeling from Mad Men, probably due to the shared heritage. Guess I really should check Breaking Bad out after all.

Re: AMC - The Best Network On Television

Agreed on Mad Men and the Walking Dead. I've been meaning to catch on Rubicon too. I wish they'd put some pants on the Breaking Bad dude in the promo shots though. The ubiquitous shots of a weird dude in his underwear never really prompted me to give it a shot. I'll give it a try one of these days t...

That would be a nice addition, and we may do that in the future. For the current aliases, they'll all be viewable via the new "powers" command. With that command, you can list all of your powers and show info on them which includes the alias. Here's an example of what detect invisibility l...

so an example of this could in theory be that arcane spell that turns the mage into a warrior temporarily? because i can already see this being put to use!


That would be an extreme example involving adding many powers at once, but yes, that would be possible.

Re: Spell focus

Sure, I'll take a look at it. For reference, it was turned back on over a year ago so if it's not functioning now it's a bug of some sort. It should increase the effectiveness of spells regardless of your class, but it only works on the spells with the same type as the focus of course.

Damage is the % modifier to the standard damage. 200% means it does double damage, 50% means half damage, etc. I'll work on adding the base damage too so you can see exactly what it's doing. Frequency is the chance to fire each time the enchantment is checked. So for a burst enchantment that goes of...
