Title: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Polaris on August 24, 2013, 07:54:13 pm
Since I've been appointed Tome Keeper and all, I figured it would be good to make a thread...
I'm not sure whether this goes in Tomes or not, so if it bothers anyone, Shane or Taylor or Karjam (or even myself! :o) could move it to Endanian Chronicles or something.

Basically, use this thread to tell me of any edits you're making or planning on making to a Tome so that I don't accidentally screw something up or reverse your changes. You can also use it to complain about something I did, or suggest changes to profiles or information. I will use it to ask permission for things or tell of any edits I'm planning on making.

Got it? Get it? Good! :)

Anyway...for now, I'm planning on going through and changing the CP counts, since some people have earned a few more. At the very least, Richard currently has 5 CP as opposed to 3 as it is written. I'm checking the others as well, but I might make the edits later today, since the internet here is a bit slow...

EDIT BY SHANE:
Keeping tome edits and tome discussions in the same thread since 2013. :P

EDIT BY POLARIS:

Keeping the title classy and keeping people happy since 2013. :|

It doesn't bother me at all. :))
And I thank you for this.

Anyway, I'm adding three more tomes, since, in the Otherworld Campaign, an Eon Fox dropped the following Tomes:

However, this means that there may be a new problem: what could the Tome of Knowledge be used for now?
Well, the answer to that is, in fact, rather simple, really.
That tome will be used to list all the Moves and Magic that has been discovered... but only once all those tomes are added, and when the Locations page becomes obsolete. (Which, at the moment, requires the second boss fight of the Chronicles campaign to be dealt with. Yes, I just spoiled something as usual. :P)


EDIT:
Wow, the Tome of Dreams is the forum's 5555th post. :o

EDIT EDIT:
Also, the Otherworld enemies won't go in the Tome of Monsters.
I have yet to decide where they could go, though.

Updated the CP counts. Julio and Kush have the highest counts, at 9 CP each, while my sword has the lowest, with only 6. Everything else has 8 CP.

Also changed my profile a bit. Remember you CAN do that within reason. :P

An enigmatic entity. Polar just sort of showed up one day with partial amnesia - that is, Polar remembers everything about itself and its early life, but what happened between 14 to 16 or how (s)he came to wake up in Endania is unknown.
Um. "14 to 16" what? ???
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits
Post by: Polaris on September 08, 2013, 02:20:42 pm
*shrug*

I think that's because past me thought that maybe Polar was in a coma or can't remember those years.
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits
Post by: Taylor on September 08, 2013, 02:37:58 pm
I meant, was it 14 to 16 years? 14 to 16 weeks? 14 to 16 days? Polar's ages of 14 to 16?
Looks as though something is missing, though. ???

It's probably just me, though, but that's why I'm asking - it really does look to me as though there's something missing. :-[



@v: Thanks for clarifying. :)
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits
Post by: Polaris on September 08, 2013, 02:38:57 pm
It's age 14 to age 16.

@^:No prob. :)

You'll have noticed that Aspen's Tome of Psyche page (http://shanescavestory.createaforum.com/tomes/tome-of-psyche/msg6981/#msg6981) contains new things.

Bonuses:
This only includes Race and Class bonuses, which are used in the "Bonus" column of the Stats table.
At the moment, Aspen has this to her stat bonuses:

Bonus   0   4   0   0   0   5   0   2   5

Those are all from just her class.

Bonuses are above Class Points.
If it's already applied at the table, "(already applied)" is added to the end.
However, if it's not available, "(not available)" is added.


Class Points:
Yes, I added Cooking and Poison there. And Ashen has Ice, as of now.

If something is at maximum (i.e. 1000 CP) then the "next level" becomes **** (as with Ashen's Ice and Aspen's Poison).


Resistances:
I'm surprised this wasn't there. :o
Aspen has a Dark resistance of 20% because of her equipment.

Polaris, a favor: could you please update the Tables of Contents for every tome, and also notify me if there's something missing from any of the Tomes?

I'll try to update the Tome of Wisdom later today (regarding the equipment and such).

Hm. Nice edits, Shane. ^_^
Thanks :)

Tome Edits. Tome Discussions.
Those are both the same purposes, wouldn't you say, mr. de Goede?
Title: Re: Tome of Tome Edits
Post by: KarjamP on October 05, 2013, 06:54:58 pm
This is for discussing edits.

Tome of Tome Discussion's for discussing about the tomes itself. :P

Is this better for you, KarjamP?

Renamed it to "Tome of Tome Edits and Tome Discussions". :P

Post by: Shane on October 06, 2013, 08:53:49 am
You have my sincerest gratitude! Okay, let's see...

1. Accessories go in post 4770 (http://shanescavestory.createaforum.com/tomes/tome-of-inventory/msg4770/#msg4770).
Or is that not what you meant?

2. Well, for now, they're special enemies. There's probably going to be many more arachnid enemies in the Chronicles of Endania (even if it's not on Endania) so for now, they count as Special Encounter on condition if Marn is involved. (Until they're encountered normally.)

Um.
Does that make sense?
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Polaris on October 23, 2013, 10:52:49 am
Whoops, sorry.

1★I kinda just thought that it would make sense for Accessories to go after the weapons, instead of sort of being stuck in the middle there. Then again, it barely matters.

2★Understood.

Also, I'm not going to do it now since I'm STILL working on the RPG post, but I'll probably check the rest of the threads later. The ones I didn't look at are the newer ones that don't have much meat on them last I read, so I probably won't need to add to the Table of Contents, but I should check anyway. I'd also like to add some of the created abilities to the Tome of Elements soonish.
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Shane on October 23, 2013, 10:57:49 am
Um.
The new Abilities of the elements will wait until each element has 15 Abilities, and until I get the chance to add the Chess, Money and Mythic elements.
Hope that's okay. :)
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Taylor on October 23, 2013, 11:18:22 am
Speaking of which, why did you add those, anyway?
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Shane on October 23, 2013, 12:36:44 pm
Hito counts as three elements, and I'd prefer it if the total element count ends on 0 or 5. And with those three new elements, it's 55.
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Shane on November 07, 2013, 12:02:20 pm
Okay, I've added a Whip- and Claw-type Weapon to the Tome of Inventory, added three new Tome of Wisdom pages, with one of them being... hilarious, in my opinion. :))

Seriously, this character sheet (http://shanescavestory.createaforum.com/sign-ups/sign-up-thread/msg11133/#msg11133) has a seriously messed-up format. :o
The Tome of Wisdom can't decode it and encrypt it to make it easier to read.

Not to mention that it's mostly incomplete.

...

TIME FOR MANUAL DECODING AND ENCRYPTION!
I guess. :P



EDIT:
I fixed a few loopholes in the Tome of Intellect.
Any other loopholes I should know about? :P
Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Lily on November 07, 2013, 12:45:19 pm
I think the Summoning Glyph should have limits.
People could abuse it if it's at maximum Rank.

The Return Glyph has a rather neat loophole removed, it seems.

That's all I can think, as a spectator.

Title: Re: Book of Tome Edits/Discussion
Post by: Taylor on November 19, 2013, 02:34:59 pm
Charlotte, don't you mean, Lily? :P

Anyway, if Shane and Polaris allows asking of glyph ideas and so on in this thread, it's okay then.

I didn't do anything to add Tome Keeper to Charlotte's usergroup; I had PMed Shane to ask him to do it though. As Lily said, "think of it as a test", Charlotte.

Well, there's really no other place to do that sort of thing. Sure, post it here. I don't mind at all. ^_^

Although I do think making her a Tome Keeper was a little out of the blue, Shane...but, whatever, it's not my decision anyhow.

By the way, Charlotte?

I'd like you to think of a way to nerf the Summoning Glyph in the Tome of Intellect.
I could ask anyone, but I'd prefer it if Charlotte did that; I'd like to see how she'd do.

After you thought of a way (or two), post it in this thread. In terms of Tome Keepers, Polaris is your senior, and you are Polaris' apprentice. Something like that.

If Polaris, me and KarjamP agree, the changes might happen.


Um. I hope none of you have a problem with that? D:

I'll try to think of a way to make the Summoning Glyph without a loophole... but I'm horrible at this, just so you know.

TOME OF INTELLECT
Page 2: Summoning Glyph

招く

Summoning Glyph:
A glyph that can summon items to the one who inscribes the glyph.
Unlike most glyphs, it has a blood cost.
Summoning several things all at once only incurs the cost once.
The higher the rank, the lower the cost will be.

COST: 75 HP per use
RANK: I
USAGE POINTS: 1/100

Let's see...

I say we add 5 HP to the cost for every item summoned (so summoning three items require 90 HP) for each person documented in the Tome of Wisdom.
At maximum rank, the cost is doubled.

As Ashen has used the Glyph before he only took 75 HP damage due to the glyph and he's documented in the Tome of Psyche.

Or we could add a cost of SMP and MP at about 15 or 30 each for every rank obtained, with SMP / MP cost being 0 at ranks I and II?

Bumping to say that I'll be unlocking the Tome threads.
Why?
So that I can know which Tome threads I've finished up for the reboot, haha. It's going to be quite a massive thing I'll be doing, but then again, it beats getting hit with a shovel by a knight :P
Funny this thread's not stickied, but oh well. Doesn't really make much difference now, does it?
