Heya good folk of Avlis, I would like to bump the remorts.

Maybe you were thinking about this but for some reason decided not to for whatever reason, maybe you hadn't thought about it but now would like to or maybe you just missed it first time around.

If you have any questions, thoughts of things you'd like to do but are just not sure about anything at all, feel free to PM me and I will get back as soon as i can (spellchecker not included), theres peopel out there who have remorted and are very happy with the results and then of course theres Jazz, who we banned (yeah thats what happened to him) for trying to make a half sereg half wemic dual scimitar weilding shadow dancer, with assasian levels.

But seriously I want to hear from you, no matter how unlikely/stupid you thikn yoru question or remort idea is.

Thanks

Well, my 2 cents and a few thoughts.

1. For the love of all that is good, make sure you really, really want to remort before doing it.
2. If you're doing a custom race remort, prepare for unforeseen problems. Your pc might have trouble with chairs, doors etc if they're strangely shaped or sized. It's not game-breaking but can be annoying.
3. If you're doing a strange-looking remort, prepare for unpleasantness (dare I say assholishness) from the direction of players. You might get tells and snide remarks calling you a 'cheese-changeling' and some people will do all in their power to make your play less enjoyable (which is fine IC but bit frustrating OOC).
4. Make sure you really want to remort, again.

Good points, but if the above situation happens to you - no matter what character you play - if you do feel griefed by a player in tells, please send a screenshot and/or any logs you have of the incident to the staff email address, every complaint is looked into and taken seriously.

In line with Tangleroot's advice, if you belong to the group of "I quit. Now I'm back." people, then remorts probably aren't for you. It's a permanent goodbye to your epic PC so you have to be really really sure you can live with that without regrets.

Here's something I thought of and wondered about. Let's say Player 264 decides to remote his epic character and chooses the NPC option for the epic. Then a few months later; Player 264 joins the ranks of the DMs. DM's have the option of possessing NPC's. Can Player 264 now; as DM zyx take possession of his old epic that is now an NPC .... or can he possess any NPC except that one?

A DM can do whatever he wants is my guess. Who else would be better to play the NPC, than the dude who has played him from level 1 to 21+?

We have some guidelines about playing yourself as an NPC... in theory it's possible, but in practice the only DM who has done so was Choraldances.

PostAuthor: Blue Wolfy » Wed May 14, 2008 3:46 am

i am 'considering' remorting my character "suki" Sakura Darksstar (fighter/cleric halfnyph in the COB) since ive not been on (and shes not been seen) in rl months. The cover story for my absense been shes been in training to become a equalizer in the basement of the fort near blandenburg all this time and hardly comes out for air.

1. Her armor and helm belong to the council of balance (shes just added other armors to it), would thiose be returned to the council first?, shes also got a AKA belt and a 4A uniform. I would assume the heir pc would not be auto joined to those guilds, and those items returned.

2. since its been rl months since i player her, IG time would it have been long enough for her to have a child? backstory she fell in love with a fellow student, or instructor and ended up pregnant to explain why suki hasnt even been seen by her best freind kate or her family in the COB

3. suki is a weaponsmith and tailor, would her heir (or son, if child is allowed) be able to start with a a small boost to either skill. ive not seen trade skills mentione about heir, but one would naturally assume that one would teach their heir skills to carry on a trade. ((suki also has severa outfit patterns in her out of home buisness "KISS Specialty Cloths" they all are basic normal cloths just original suki designs and renamed but there is a dozen or so, would the heir have access to them if it took over the buisness))

thats all the questions i could remember for now, nomatter the answers thanks for your time on them.
I only feel myself, when i'm sombody else.

Blood relatives aren't allowed... we won't break our pregnancy rule even for remorts. If you want to pass on items to an heir, it'll have to be some other story.

Guild items should either be kept or given back according to the IC rules your guild set up. AKN belt and 4A uniform you probably don't need to worry about, but the CoB would likely appreciate getting their merged armor back.

We could work with the trade skill request and the patterns. Shoot me or Jazz a PM with your complete request and we'll get cracking on it.

Is there someone in particular handling remorts on the team that could answer a few questions? Is it still spool32?

I thought the rule was that your character could get pregnant, but only if you NPC-ified them and never played them again ever? Isn't that one of the remort options?

PostAuthor: Dirk Cutlass » Tue Dec 09, 2008 3:30 pm

Hi, I recently came back (again) to Avlis. Someone suggested a remort, which I'd never considered before, but I guess is a possibility now. Inevitably I have a few questions...

A. Significant Item/Gold transfer to Guilds. No Item limit and up to 25% or 2 million gold, whichever is less.

Can it be any guild, or does it have to be one that I was a member of? I rather be donating gear to a guild with a good and active player base, etc.


B. No Property transfer to new PC. All property is auctioned off by the Epic, and added to their gold or item total, or becomes an NPC home.

I never owned any property, so no questions there.


C. 1 of the following:
- New PC starts with 3 nice items. 2 of which can be Custom Items with background describing how they got it. Power of items is limited to the strength of the 3 best items not given away by the Epic PC.

You mean the new PC starts with 3 nice "new" items (or are they somehow harvested from the retired epic?). If the former, then do I get to chose these items?

And the next line... "power of the items is limited to the strength of the 3 best items not given away by the Epic PC". So, e.g. if I decided to not donate say a +4 armor, +3 weapon, +4 cloak ... in which case they go to The Team I guess or trashed or whatever*, then my new PC could somehow get something equivalent for his 3 "new" items, i.e. +4, +3, +4 ? Sounds too good to be true... is it? :wink:

(How is this calculated, by toolset value etc?)


D. 1 of the following:
- Retired Epic becomes NPC.
- New PC has appearance changed to model of a nonstandard custom race, subject to approval from the Team.
- New PC gets 2 bonus levels.

Tantalizing options. No questions.

I would say something that you are a member of, or at least are friends with. We don't want Thorfinn to remort, then give all of his gold to the reavers, because his new PC may be a reaver (although that would break celedor's heart)

You mean the new PC starts with 3 nice "new" items (or are they somehow harvested from the retired epic?). If the former, then do I get to chose these items?

You can pick items from the pallete, or come up with a neat idea for custom items, with descriptions and properties.

And the next line... "power of the items is limited to the strength of the 3 best items not given away by the Epic PC". So, e.g. if I decided to not donate say a +4 armor, +3 weapon, +4 cloak ... in which case they go to The Team I guess or trashed or whatever*, then my new PC could somehow get something equivalent for his 3 "new" items, i.e. +4, +3, +4 ? Sounds too good to be true... is it? :wink:

(How is this calculated, by toolset value etc?)


You can get equivalent stuff. For example, if you donate a +3 ring of protection, you can get a +3 AC boots or +2 sword that does 1d4 cold, or something similar.All of that is a judgement call. If we went by toolset value, people would trade in +5 amulets for boots of speed or dragon slippers. That is bad.

if you have detailed questions, send a note to staff@avlis.org. Also, figure out a backstory so we can help customize the items for you.

I have a question on this newfangled process.

I want to remort, but don't want to remort my only epic character. Could I remort Hert Snyder instead? I've been wanting to turn him into an undead priest for the longest time.

Newfangled, weve been doing it for over a year!

Myself and Jazz tried to remort Aeveras without him knowing, apparently "thats not on" so yes it does have to be one of your own PCs, alledgedly. If you can prove to me you play Hert, Ill do it for you.
