Simple idea

Postby Thilindel » Sun Mar 06, 2005 4:47 am

PLEASE make it where paladins can tog vicious on evil mobs. Just 'Tog evil' or whatever. It's been brought up before. A bunch of crap when another mob walks in that's uninjured and you hit him by accident, trying to finish the other off. AND it's totally in the way paladins are: Evil will not draw another breath.

Or maybe a command like finish mob (that we could use with other classes as well).

I can agree with this suggestion - Paladins should not have the option to turn off vic against evil mobs, IMO.

It is impossible to generalize what a paladin would or would not do within the constraints of a FR setting. Such actions would depend vastly on the particular diety they choose. As dieties are not part of class the structure on Toril, it's a difficult determination to make.

From a gameplay standpoint, togging vic is aggrivating at points, but not horrendous. At higher levels, its rare to mortally injure an enemy, sure it happens but invokers are pretty good at overkill.

Thematically, not being able to kill a defeated foe automatically seems appropriate. Mercy and forebearance are a virtue. I'll leave it to others to decide if thematic decisions are more important that the aggrivation they cause, but if we remove too many of the distinctions a paladin has, we might as well rename the entire class to knights and let them be mounted warriors.

Tog vicious on evil would also allow paladins to continually attack paralyzed evil mobs, which would be nice, rather than disengage from them and have to type kill for each attack.

I always thought it made sense to not allow Paladins to tog vicious, because aren't they supposed to say grace or something before they eat?

I think paladins should be allowed to tog vic. I mean, is letting a mob bleed out more merciful?

They're supposed to stop and attempt to turn the wicked creature, or save their soul, or say some kind of benediction before they dispatch them, silly. At least as long as the creature is somewhat sentient.

Paladin : I will smite thee for goodness and all my other priestly crap!
Evil Mob : Never try and stop me goodie scum!

*fight occurs, Evil Mob is mortally wounded*

Paladin : Have you seen our booklets on conversion? I could bandage you but this a better method I find...
Evil Mob : *groan* *cough* *gasp*
Paladin : Fine! Lay there and think about your evil ways.
Evil Mob : *whimper*
Paladin : Off to save more souls! If you wish to change your wicked ways, and you happen to live, look me up.
Evil Mob: *cough* *gasp*
Paladin : There is no reasoning with some people...
