general descriptions of a characters strength

Postby Darwoth » Fri Sep 07, 2012 4:30 pm

in ultima online when you used the anatomy skill on another player it would come back with a series of very vague descriptions as to their "strength" in a given stat along the lines of "that person looks exceptionally fast with superhuman strength" and evaluating intelligence "that person looks quite stupid" or "that person looks extremely intelligent" etc.

something like this for the various biles would be pretty cool and not take away from the realism aspect.

Itd be interesting, and itd probably be better to do it relative to your own character. Compare your humors to theirs and see feedback like,"This pilgrim seems to be as strong as you" or "This pilgrim is much more hardy than you."

I like it. We need some kind of system to determine a player's relative strength. Probably doesn't need to be as precise as other games(IE, everquest's con system).

I suggested this before but I will do it again.

I think the pilgrim's should get fatter depending on what their highest bile is, or the average of all of their biles. Since the only way to level up your character is by eating massive amount of foods I think this would be pretty cool. That way, when you see a buncha big fatass pilgrims, you will know to use caution (or just run away).

I don't know what about unkinned people, but I think that I should be able to see (inspect) my friends from kinned list.
Maybe it should be made by some more complicated, multi level, permissions, like claims tresspass, theft and valdalism...
1 level I can see things that are now available by kin list (online status and name),
2 level I can see his inventory, backpack,
3 level humors and proficiencies.

It would be quite convenient to just click and check friends status, if you have 10+ fighters it is pain to ask them or wait for their update about stats on forum every day:/
