Concertor, I hope you got a dozen of those charisma ammys, you need several wrapped around each appendage to do you any good. My contact with you was the only negative that I experienced in the event. The lucky corn was nice.....I got all my crits to 18 now :) Each crit got an ammy, thanks to the co...

Replying to Topic 'Most memorable RPG's'

I love RPG's. Everyone that posted has mentioned some great ones. I have played and enjoyed most of them. However, I don't think this series has been mentioned and it is one of my favorites:

Might and Magic.......especially M&M 7 ( M&M 9 was a bit of a let down though )

ideas for trading

With KOD being many years old, I'm sure this is not a new idea. My apologies if this has been previously deliberated, but I haven't seen it mentioned so I will present it: I've been involved with several trades recently. I am happy to say that all went very smoothly and amiably. There is an element ...

OK, Darge, you just changed the rules of engagement. Since you brought 'honesty' into the equation we'll have to remove the guantlets and settle this in a different manner. Please...Darge....everyone....join me in the Steel Flower. Let's pull tables together and all gather 'round for a little friend...

Brad stated in "Rules of Conduct", topic " Player Vs Player Combat": (edited) "Drakkar is NOT a pvp game, nor has it ever been. If you cannot live without PvP, you would be best served spending your money elsewhere." Hmmm. NOT a pvp game, NEVER HAS BEEN!! It appears that this "old code" of newbie co...

Looks like that "old code" is wonderful for getting instant gratification if you're big and the offender that PO'd you is much smaller. You get to be judge and jury !! But, what about when the reverse is the case. What? You mean you weren't aware that big guys abuse small guys? That "old code" doesn...

Since this seems to be a dying thread I will conclude with my final remarks....er....novel !! My ramblings received much more attention than I anticipated. I want to express my appreciation for the attention that you gave it, and offer a sincere 'Thank You' to each of you who bothered to post a resp...

Yeti, rolling a thief was just a subject on my mind at the time. Wondering what would make a good weapon for one in Drak just popped into my head and I asked. I really wasn't expecting detailed answers. I just wanted something as reference for a little research. Just wanted a few suggestions. When y...

if there was a discussion on daggers, I'm sorry I missed it. I must have departed a little too soon. I would have liked to have read it. The purpose of my example was to offer a simplified example of the varying quality of information gathered from two available sources. One being general, the other...

Replying to Topic 'Newbie Ramblings'

I started this thread not because I've been abused or bullied; in fact quite the opposite is true. I'm complaining of the stark apathy towards new players. Drakkar has an aura of disdain that just reeks, and I find it uncomfortable. I like RPGs very much. If I'm playing a boxed PC game that only tak...

Mihey, I may be mistaken, but I believe I read that the guild making part of the game is broken. If this is true it would explain the absense of smaller guilds. Over time all guilds will grow in level (and level requirements) putting all newer players in the scenerio that Yeti described. I sure hope...

Yeti, that is a very valid point, and I well understand that a little player has no place with such a HUGE level guild such a JIHAD. Nothing to be gained for either party. I was really aiming the comment to guilds where members are primarily in the 20's and might could soften their requirements to a...

Thanks for the reply, Braindead, but you speak of newbies stereotypically. We are not all the same. I've never asked you for anything. Haven't asked anybody for anything. I am level 14, still wear yeti because its all I can kill. To see me you would think I was a young barb....actually I am a little...

Newbie Ramblings

For someone who averages all of one comment a week in DZ chat area, I was once told that I comment just to read my own typing. *sigh* Well, that's exactly what this is! I keep a notepad by my computer, and I keep arcane notes for my own amusement. Today I walked into the SF for the twelth straight t...
