    Despise Dungeon Revamp

    Two brothers, both well learned in the arcane arts, lusted for the same woman. She was but a simple maiden, tending to the ranches dotting Britannian countryside, her beauty, however, was without equal. Both men knew should they compete against one another, neither would succeed in bearing fruit with such beauty. So the brothers conspired, and began to corrupt the very fabric of her love. Together the brothers conjured a powerful Polymorph spell to transfigure themselves into the perfect man for the maiden to love. For months they would deceive her love, the maiden unknowingly accomplice to a corrupt triangle. Finally, she gave birth to twins. Despite the powerful magics the brothers used to pursue their ruse, the mother’s love for her children was too great and the brother’s trickery was uncovered. Outraged at such a thing the maiden cast away her lovers forever, cursing them to the Abyss. As the twins grew and their mother aged they would learn of her hate towards their fathers. As each twin grew to adulthood and became their own man, they would blame the other for their own father’s fate, and come to despise one another. Already practiced in their fathers’ art and fully possessing their arcane talent the twins began bartering with the mysterious Wisps. Eventually each convinced the Wisps to conjure an army with which to destroy the other. Their mother, bearing witness to this feud and knowing the dangers of the likely outcome, pleaded with her sons to reconcile. Corrupt with rage, there was no foregoing their anger and so she mediated at the Shrine of Compassion, hoping in her heart of hearts for her sons to end the feud. As she meditated a mysterious Wisp appeared to her and in an instant an eternal pact was struck. The mother’s love was enough to save Britannia from impending war, but her sons, filled with despise would be cast there forever…

    at the Casino:

    I'm not sure how the dart thing works, unless thats now working yet. :)


    Despise: Good Karma characters are not attacked by the "Good" Monsters" but Bad Karma Character are attacked by both Good and Bad (Red) Monsters. Maybe Bad Karma characters should also be free from being attacked from Bad Monsters unless they attack them. 5They do after you picked a side and got a wisp)


    Suggestion : Place a NPC Healer at the Entrance of the Dungeon that can ressurect you. Make him Simular like the one in Doom Gauntlet that you have to pay him gold (5K or 10K) to get ressurected).


    (Could place these at the Entrance of Every Dungeon) If people don't want to use them they can still run to one for free ressurecting.

    What are the Anniversary gits ? I made a new character on test but when I entered TC1 I got a message saying that the character is too young to get a gift....

    I could copy an existing character from another shard but when I tried it initially I had difficulties so thought it was easier and faster to ask here.

    Thanks.

    I've ammended the page I wrote to be more clear. You double click the ankh to get the wisp orb, but single clicking it brings up the usual ankh menu with Res, lock karma and tithe. On the upper (good) level though you do have to be right next to it or can't reach it because of the slope.

    You can't customize the appearance of the steward currently and it looks exactly like Patrick Stewart.

    Unless you make it female :D

    I'm not sure why mannequins and stewards have no hair, it's strange, but I guess there must be a reason for it.
    Maybe we'll be able to buy wigs for them at some point. :)

    They are also on west Umbra, Ilshenar and every other place that spawn NPC Brigands, so I guess you just added "Raiders" to the spawn list of the Brigand camps and now they spawn on other facets as well as other locations, not just the Brigand Fort between Yew and Britain. I'm also not sure why this is noted under Bug Fixes. We just started to test the changes :).

    The fisherman's village is still full of infected gargoyles, though the healer has gone.

    Petra, can you try to rename a steward, then press the cancel menu without entering any name, and check his default name. no matter what the gender or the race is, its default name is "Pat", so I believe it was intentional. :)

    Stewards also give these messages:
    "You rotate the mannequin a little bit."
    "Enter a new name for your vendor"

    Pat the Steward (visual approximation):

    Lucky Darts / Slot Machine: Nothing to see here, but it is not mentioned in the publish notes either so I guess it will be added later.
    Chips on the tables: They act as recall runes for some strange reason.
    Cards: The radio buttons under "Number of Faces" are not grouped, clicking on one does not clear the others.
    Edit: sorry, it seems the singular form is die.

    As I said in my page - ignore the books, they're not relevant to the publish content.
    Interact with the npcs only.

    I think it will be better though if they add context menus on cashier npcs while also keeping the "double-clicking on npcs" option, the same goes for the dealers.

    Chuckles' Luck paying three times the bet for three of a specific number is ripping players off, in fact, two times the bet for two of a specific number is ripping players off as well, and brutally if I might add. You should pay ~10 times for two times and ~150 times for three times, at the very least.

    Note: Since you cant individually bet for the dice to come up multiple times, the above suggestion will bankrupt the casino, so discard it.

    No idea, but it is my understanding that the lower the odds are, the higher the table pays, and the odds of three of a kind in chuckle's luck is less than 1%, which pays triple while the odds of Outside in hi-middle-lo is about 18%, which pays five times the bet. Thus, it is not thought thoroughly.
    Note: Since you cant individually bet for the dice to come up multiple times, the above suggestion will bankrupt the casino, so discard it.

    Started to test Despise: Why other players are able to attack each others' pet? A friend trained a pet and another player just killed it by luring it to a crowded area with other side's creatures and also attacking it himself. I saw another player luring an ethereal warrior pet to the evil side and caused both the owner and the pet to die. I'm not against or for it, but if you will allow this type of action in Trammel you should warn the players beforehand.

    Also, your pet doesn't follow you in defensive mode if another creature attacks it.

    I got the "You will be teleported into the depths of the dungeon within 60 seconds" message about 15 minutes ago, haven't got any other call to arms message and I'm still waiting to be teleported.
    Edit: Forgot to conscript the creature.

    It's going to be interesting because the best way to get points is going to be farming at odd hours, but the best way to do the boss is going to be with three or more people, so I don't know. Worst part for me is you can't use wither or else you kill your own pet, lol.

    Take two: After waiting an hour without getting teleported the other day, I just gave up today after 10 minutes. I have a level 10 creature with me but the army power shows 81, which is probably the player who got teleported there with a level 9 creature. My character is a gargoyle, if it is related to that.

    Edit: Forgot to conscript the creature.

    Take three: I let my creature die, I dropped the wisp orb and logged out. I logged in, took control of another creature, got the call to arms message and at one point my creatures' hp displayed "-1.#IND", then it returned to normal but I still didn't get teleported while others did.

    Edit: Forgot to conscript the creature.

    Thanks to Galahad of Sonoma, I finally understand the issue: it seems I forgot to conscript the creature, thinking that the call to arms message was already indicating that my army was ready.

    He mentioned another thing though: he is stuck after he got teleported.

    Yes, Conscript your monster and has to be a minimum of level 4 or 5 to be teleported. But thats too early if you ask me. :)
