Potential Problem with Talisman Random Generator

    Hi there:

    I've done many thousands of fletching quests. I've also rummaged through thousands of bags from the carpenter's quest. I've got a couple of gm carps, but I've never actually done the quest. I just have trouble leaving bags with 100s of items in them without looking at them.

    Anyway, I've only found 69 different names of creatures (monsters and animals) total in all those many thousands of attempts. The only elementals I've found are snow and ice. The only demon is the ice fiend. Meraktus the named Minotaur drops, but I haven't seen another named monster. I am confident there are more than 69, but I really don't believe all the monsters and animals have talismans that drop at this time.

    I'd think I just have had poor luck, but this isn't just my bags it's thousands of other peoples bags too. I think there is an excellent chance the random number generator is having a problem.

    Yeah, and what about the results of "A Frightened Orc"? That's an event creature from years ago, with no natural spawn. Hell, I got a Frightened Orc Killer 100% the other day...
