Re: Races of the Nine

He was an elf, but that's not common knowledge.
So far as most people are aware, the Nine were all human. (Some of the others had some quirks, too, that made them not quite human.)

Re: Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale

The game was unplayable for the better part of several months of an authentication problem.

I dunno if that's fixed now.

Re: Currencies of Avlis: Conversion Values IG.

Avlissian currency is on the whole minted with metal. They're of varying levels of purity and reliability in size/form which means certain countries have more reliable (and thus more universally accepted) coinage. It's similar to how England after Newton took over the mint had the most accepted coin...

Re: After nearly 2 decades, the Avlis Sourcebook is here

While I appreciate the supportive notes, I have to admit that the writing in the current incarnation of the sourcebook isn't what we're actually capable of doing. As Orl noted we're going to work on the mechanics side first, then do a general revision of the book to live up to our own standards. A2'...

Re: Question about Avlis XP System

The cap is now subtracted based on how your xp changes between one kill and another, so there's no longer a double penalty for a multiclass penalty.

Re: Strength of the Land

Damage applied to the character will always stack with damage applied to the character and damage applied to a weapon.

The only damage types that don't stack is when you apply the same damage type to a weapon twice.

Re: Nanshilae words.

Well let's see, the hebrew root words are sheker (lie) and shakran (liar)

sakharas (to lie), sakhar (a lie) and a sakhrin (liar) plural sahkrinen(liars).

Re: Nanshilae words.

*Dusts off thread.*

Okay, since this seems to be a fairly common word that needs translating: "Archer"

In nanshilae the word for bow is Keeshen.

Archer will be "keeshot". (Yes, yes, derived from "kashat" or "bowman" in hebrew.)

This is being addressed with the loot drop fix. However, it's a bit difficult to do it as you request, because that message was given whenever your character was saved.

As with any core update it'll take a copap wide update, it's also an opportunity to do some additions and fixes to existing custom content. But to my knowledge, there's some work being done already in merging 2das.

But hold your horses, folks, it's still a beta.
