I've been really excited for the Tarot Card System for ages. I love playing games within a game. Witcher and FF8 I could play for hours with their subgames.

Because if it's a stat you gain for doing it repeatedly, what keeps raiders from practicing in their own base, not under brazier fire and not in any real danger? I guess even if it's just learning the puzzles, the possibility to do it at home slightly defeats the purpose, perhaps. Perhaps if you need to stay up to date and locks themselves cost quite a bit to spam to practice, but at that point it becomes as always a case of investment versus potential reward, like with bell-ing a pclaim.


I expect many people will practice in their bases, dropping summonable scents all the while. So, it's a risk, and you can only learn so much from each lock, so there's also a cost. But you won't be able to memorize it, you'll really be relying on that practice level to give you good or bad info.

I believe I've already thought of a way to exploit lockpicking, and my crime IQ is around 45.

:lol: That would be hilarious and if it's not their actual intention for that to happen... that should at least be part of the "risk" of picking a lock.. that if it has a spring on it it has a X% chance of closing on it's own after it's been picked.

Too bad lockpicking simply can't work in Salem.

Sure it can, we were playing Tree of Life for several months and they had it covered properly, just like they had Raiding covered much better.
Containers simply would only drop a specific amount of items based upon the locks people locked them and the items would be random, your lockpicking skills were relevant in locking. It however was significantly easier than destroying everything instead.

Its just whether you want to revamp the current mechanics enough to adapt to new systems, thats the larger concern. It would locking your containers alot more valuable, nowadays hardly anyone does that.

tree of lifes system sounds pretty stupid as with most other things there, i am sure it can be implemented better here.
