Now now lets play nice and fair everyone :) or no one wins, Dom don't encourage them haha

I'll be closing the poll later, if its pretty even i might split it to the half way, or do one day low one day high
Unless of course we have a clear winner that is, happy polling

Should depend on what the available people want again I guess. I know a lot of the people requesting the no max aren't always around, so I guess that should be taken into account. I'd say maybe another poll situation, but just that the winning option from the previous month can't be a contender to stop repeatition. So if we poll next month max 29 wouldn't be an option.

Because I am a TWAT. I'm gunna go back on everything I've said in previous forums and ask this question?

My serkanian Ten Tigers was made at 29 skill (another character died at the end of an event and I had skill to put on a starter), at the last weekender I gaines XY skill. I have not spent this skill.

Theoretically could I play the weekend as Ten Tigers, in the exact same build as at Piddling, as if I hadn't gained this unspent skill, so AMD etc all applying exactly as they did before?

It's not downstatting, because I haven't lost any abilities, or damage grades or... well... anything!

What's the consensus? I have a back up so don't worry if it's a resounding no...

I thought you were doing 6 on the Piddling weekend? Don't you have to be 30 skill + to do 6 with a 2H?

Yeah I was doing 6, maybe I was 30 skill then? Ignore my previous statement... this is why I should probably get my characters up to date on the system ;) Thanks Andy!

Are you coming to the event btw?

Have nothing to play in the threshold and nothing i'm particularly interested in starting.

Would have had it been a no max or a 120

Ok news, as I've been asked by a few.
Yes down statting Is allowed to a responsible extent, no. 300+ characters though unless you bribe me with food :P
IC reasons will be given for the drain, but it you wanna down stat you HAVE TO tell me in advance , so send a pm over
Normal rules, downed to 29,29 spend on stuff that doesn't require heroic and up, and of course unquies Turn off unless they are race or classes

Just updating on the down statting front:

something may, could, might, should, possibly will happen to you to explain this.
please have written down or in your head a 29 skill and essence version of your hero for this event if you wish to downstat from 30 and above
no skills or abilties that require 30 and above
unless your unquie was at starting level they also turn off for this adventure.
items and gear can be retained
max damage is for 29 and under

if you have any questions or issues with this drop me a pm, again though i need to know how many are downstatting as i still want to try and balance things and get it all set up

the reason im doing this instead of what pete did for piddling is people stil retained their hits and extra soul, stats and what not from being over 60, they just were limitied to how much power and essence they could wield, and abilities that could manifest. this worked really well for this event but as a starting level adventure i think its a bit too much
longer serving and more exp'ed heroes are likly to already have better gear than a starting character and giving them acess to extra hits would just unbalance the scale even more in my view.

hope that makes somes sense peps, just want everyone to feel useful, rather than someone with 20 hits stomping through everything.

Am I correct in assuming that whilst Items can be kept, they are still limited by their threshold.

So whilst you may have a +2 Sword, being pre 29 you can still only utilise it as a +1 Sword.

I don't know whether Armour and extra hits has a direct threshold, but afaik no one has a Leather Armour of +20 (yet.)

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5614

For this adventure you are <29 so although you may own a +5 sword as you are <29 you can only utilise +1 of it
