Welcome to the forums! A lot of us have been here for quite some time, years for some. We love to see new people and hear new ideas. We are glad to see you.
With that said, please remember this is Alpha. This game is far from finished. Things are broke, things aren't in game yet, some are temporary. Of you are unsure about the way it is working, ask. There are a lot of well informed people around.
One thing we have learned is, Goblinworks listens. But being negative won't get you much attention by them. If you don't like the way some thing works, state why and purpose a solution, or ask if there isn't a better way. For over two years we have been going back and forth with them to come up with waits to get this game to work as intended. New ideas are welcome and probably needed.
Also, we as a community have strived to keep negativity and toxic behavior out. A good debate is great and needed. But the negativity isn't. Our current community is awesome, but we are going to be getting tons of new faces. Please help to keep things going in the right direction.
It is alpha, it is a test! Enjoy.
With the new blog out on PoI's, I started this thread to get ideas flowing for my "Bat Cave". We can assume that hide-outs are a PoI much like a watch tower or inn. They aren't resource producers and are more permanant than a mine etc.
So let's start the process of building my "Bat Cave". First thing is to clear this hex of its monsters and claim it. Once that is done, the first group of questions come up. With my "Bat Cave" active, will monsters respawn? This question is important due to the fact that the absence of monsters would be a give away that the PoI has been claimed. If it has been claimed, people are going to be curious what's there, probably leading to discovery. Monster would provide some cover as to the "Bat Cave" being in that area. If so, how many should there be? This could be considered an upgrade possibly. Do you have to keep the balance so you aren't over run or possibly have this controlled by upgrade options also. They could be considered your gaurds, non aggressive to you and named allies by default.
Now my "Bat Cave" is established, it has two outposts nearby. A second group of questions come to mind. Can other people use those outposts? If some one else tries to use it, will it notify them of my presence? Would I be notified of thier presence? Can they be used as an extension of my "Bat Cave"?
Whats going to be available for my "Bat Cave"? Is it going to be considered a watch tower with stealth for all intent and purpose? Will it have a storage and power regeneration properties?
Just some questions and ideas I have. Put some input and suggestions in.
A friend and I started playing WoW together, his first MMO. One time when we were playing together he gives away this 1% rare purple drop. I was like, "Holey crap dude, you could have sold that on auction for a boat load !" He thought it was blue. Come to find out he is color blind. Red and orange, blue and purple look like the same color to him. He didn't know they had a color blind setting.
No dot= White item <common>
Monsters levels etc were done in the same fashion. And of coarse the name plates also had a different design also for type, rare, elite etc.
So my question is this, now that I finally got to it... is PFO going to add a setting for this ?? I truelly hope so.
Just out of curiousity, what's your favorite TT class and why? Mine so far has been the Inquisitor. She started off going to be the bounty hunter, but ended up more as the tank of the group. Spells and judgements to augment fighting, team work feats which included escape route etc. to allow my group mates to maneuver with out AoO. Team work feats solo. To bad it was tied to a god.
Now I may have missed this somewhere, but I think it is important to get some opinions and ideas out about systems you like and dislike. In most games a have played, they have had to battle the "ninja" with looting systems. Now a days, looting systems are pretty complex with need before greed and master looter options etc. What would like to see GW use in thier game ?
HAHA, one can only hope. I was wondering if GW and Paizo will be doing some type of clothing releases. My friends and I use Jinx for our WoW gear. I think it might be beneficail to you guys to do something like this. It could help raise money for PFO. Customizable shirts with players characters woould be awesome. Be it through Jinx or another company, it would be something nice to have.
