- Overhauled melee damage messages. These messages are now two dimensional in that they try to give you an idea how strong your attack was in addition to how much it wounded the victim.
- Converted several more zones to use the new weapon code.
New Damage Messages
The new damage messages now include an adjective describing the relative strength of your attack, in addition to describing the effect it had on the victim. A few examples:
Code: Select all
A tough old pirate slightly wounds the brown bear with his powerful slash.
A tough old pirate badly wounds the brown bear with his mighty slash.
A tough old pirate badly wounds the brown bear with his average slash.
A tough old pirate critically wounds the brown bear with a strong slash!
The brown bear staggers from a tough old pirate's awesome slash!
This is of course a first draft, and I'm more than open to discuss changing some of the phrases around or adding more variance if it seems to be needed. Please feel free to leave questions or feedback in this thread.
Note that these new messages do not affect condensed mode in any way.
