    Champ Spawns and Ghost Cam Fixes

    Shadowlord Finale Event Plan

    Key Plot Lines:

    Distracting Decisions

    * The Shadowlords mislead the people of Britannia to fight monsters and hunt treasure in Tokuno while they comb the world for their sought after Artifact. The monsters have the treasure, of course, because the Shadowlords are providing the distraction.

    Strangers Bearing Gifts

    * Grey robed strangers appear at Empath Abbey, the Lycaeum, and Serpent’s Hold called “Seers.” Unlike the event manager versions, these NPCs foretell the future, and offer players a way to convert the Cloaks of Corruption into the Cloaks of Life, Death, or Power.
    * Cloaks of Command also become available in faction strongholds


    * Manifestations of the Shadowlords appear in Tokuno, searching for the Artifact after exhausting the other facets. They spawn at halfday intervals in three locations. Once dead, they drop Cloaks of Corruption to the top three attackers, and give ToT minor artifacts to all.

    Dawn of Hope

    * Dawn returns to the land, vowing to save Britannia
    * Cloaks of Silence will be available from the EMs


    * The location of the Artifact is revealed. The Crimson Dragons are prepared for a great battle with the Platinums for dominion over Britannia, as the Shadowlords make their move. The outcome of this fight (which the players can assist in) will determine if the Chaos aligned factions (Shadowlords, Minax) receive benefits after the event arc, or whether Order does. This battle is the prelude to the finale.
    * The final battle with the Shadowlords. Rewards include three “Shards of the Gem of Immortality” (one per Shadowlord), and major artifacts.

    * TB: Silver Serpent
    * SL: Daemon
    * Summoned monster will last for one hour

    * Summoned monsters act the same as monsters/animals from the "Summon Creatures" command with the following details:
    * Requires one control slot
    * Cannot friend/unfriend or transfer
    * Summoning requires the same base requirements as the "Summon Creatures" spell (mana/skill, chance of success), but doesn't consume reagents
    * The Ogre Lord's summoned version, however, is *much* weaker than its wild counterpart

    “Shard of the Gem of Immortality”

    * An exceptionally rare item that responds to the user’s karma to play upon the fate in the worlds within

    Are the Shards all ready down?... I can't log on because the only shard that shows in my list is "retribution", and I can't even seem to log on to that shard.
  3. Some cool changes...I like the ghost farming changes but the cursed items dropping could be a little harsh. Imaging stealthing around a champ only to lose power at your house. If I understand this correctly, that would mean you lose your cursed arties? If so, I think transporting them to a shrine is good enough.

    So it won´t be abused as an easy way out with powerscrolls...
  7. I meant to say cursed arties, it wouldn't affect faction arties.

    And you make a good point, that makes it worth it anyway.
