In Dyso:
Say your best friend is running from the law, ur taken to jail by the authortities and in the jail cell you are tortured to try and get you to talk...
now we all know that if u lose a few hp or constitution, ur not gunna talk, because ooc u know that u lose nothing really from it, and ur not about to risk ur best friends life because u lost a few HP, sad but true.

so the original idea was to have the torture device drain exp, which it currently does, When you lose your precious exp then you may be a little more inclined to reveal where u friend is, seeing as u actually lose somethign of value, and if you decide that your paladin or whomever is too honorable to reveal his friend's position and will sit through the torture then thats good rp, if your char is too weak willed then thats also good rp. other than people losing hp and never speaking at all cuz they never...well you understand.

Anywho....With the new Xp system lvl 20 is now reachable and eventually everyone or atleast most people will get to that point, which makes the XP draining torture device useless. and lets those lvl 20s run around thinking they are invincible to the tools of the law...

so i ask you the question, what are you most afraid of losing?

Why not allow it to drain levels? I've seen it done, when the xp reaches the borderline, it drops a level, then goes back to draining xp.  Reply with quote

You don't really need anything new, because if this is done to a good RPer, you only need to SAY what you are doing. If something is drained for real then it's not RP anymore. It's more like PG.

I like the Idea....Even though lvl 20 is reachable now, it is a painfully slow process so xp is still very valuable. I think it would addd to the game icon_twisted.gif .

Well yes, to an extent it would be a good addition.

I believe for level 20s, they should stop draining after 10,000 xp. I mean in RL, you're not going to chop off limb after limb- you're just going to maim them enough so they will talk.

Besides, 10k is more than enough me thinks.

Speak for yourself,i love chopping off limb after limb. It takes special skill to keep your victim alive and preferably awake during the whole procedure. It's not that they'll talk because they fear death, they merely need to fear the excrusiating pain i will inflict on them for hours on end that 'll make them talk.

I do have an idea, how about making a device like a brain sucker or something so that if you knock someone out (bleeding and disabled) after tying them up in RP terms, you can drain the knowledge from their brains (get xp from them while they don't loose anything) and the device is called a DM???

LOL

that would be some neet RP i think, like a mind flayer or something similar.. mmm.....

Well, how about putting them in a jail with two creatures casting darkness and dispel all the time. this would annoy them to death and is bad for their eyes *Wicked laugh* icon_twisted.gif icon_twisted.gif icon_twisted.gif icon_twisted.gif icon_twisted.gif

that might work, but instead cast that truly obnoxious spell from the 2da known only as. ... "Sphere of Chaos" and that will make them talk, in a hurry icon_mrgreen.gif
