The Last Days / Combat Damage Discussion (unrelated to RCM)
« on: November 10, 2011, 08:31:21 pm »
I thought elves were still wiping out orcs easily?

Is it possible to change the code to make elves aim lower when dealing with orcs?

The Last Days / Orc Troops Equal to Human Troops?
« on: June 08, 2011, 03:53:10 am »
My knowledge of tLotR books isn't the best. There's a general impression I get, that humans are superior warriors to orcs and goblins. I'm not sure how much this superiority would apply to uruks, or uruk-hai (the latter might be slightly better than regular warrior men?), though.

What I'd like to ask, is whether this impression is true to the books, or just conjured up by the movies. Also curious as to how the TLD team sees this topic.

TLD.808 / Bloodpit/Gauntlet RCM
« on: May 18, 2011, 04:42:08 am »
Gah, I'm so frustrated by the Blood Pit/Gauntlet >:( !!


Has anyone beaten this thing with RCM going...? If so, how strong were you (and your guys, if you weren't doing it alone)?
Even using the cheat to kill enemies via cntrlF4, it took a long time to win. Since the enemies get armour, and sometimes even helmets... it's very hard to beat them up quickly enough to not be swarmed (especially with the fast respawn rate), mostly because of those awful shieldmen (gah, how I long for the Kick ability x.x").

TLD.808 / Companion Locations
« on: May 13, 2011, 06:16:19 am »
I'm a bit confused as to how to get NPCs for the evil side. Didn't notice any help threads of this kind, so I figured I post one. Could you please tell me which companions are available to the evil side, and how?

Onin No Ran / [Suggestion] Dual-Wield-Katanas Item
« on: December 14, 2008, 08:38:58 am »
I used the search function to look for a weapon thread or a thread where someone may have suggested this, but I found nothing--so I figured I may as well give these two cents.

Basically: To be able to wield two Katanas would be greatly frilling. Statistics would be similar to a katana, except a little slower (from using two blades) and much more damaging. So as to show players that it isn't a simple technique, you could make it so that gaining the dual katanas item takes a Quest of some sort to master the fighting style (perhaps a dojo quest?).

It has occurred to me that the reason this has not already been implemented will likely be that it is too difficult to do so. Still, I figured I should suggest it all the same (if it isn't possible now, it may be later).

My apologies if I wasted your time...

Onin No Ran / Knight vs. Samurai
« on: October 20, 2008, 03:45:17 am »
I've been asking myself this question for a while now... could a Samurai beat a Knight, or an army of samurai beat a small army of knights?

At first glance, I don't see how the Samurai could win, unless he was somewhat more skilled than the knight. Their weapons seem to consist of the Katana, Spear, the occasional axe, and the bow and arrow.
Swords aren't much good against plate. Not sure how effective spears are against plate, but I'm guessing not incredibly. Axes do have weight on their side--but weren't they rarely used? I have heard the Japanese had masterful bows and good armour-piercing arrows... but considering they apparently only wore leather armour, would the arrows be any good against plate which they never knew of?

On the side of the Knights, the only disadvantages I can see are:
Their armour would make them slower than the samurai. They may not do so well in the horse department, due to travelling overseas. If they decided to use the horses in Japan, they may not be able to armour them--making oh so easy for the Japanese to de-horse them. They wouldn't know the country as well as their enemy.
On the good side: They have shields (why this was not part of Japanese warfare, I still cannot fathom), possibly picks or crossbows, and plate armour (since knights are being used in this example).

I'm not an expert with Medieval weaponry or combat, though I'd like to be for the sake of my writing. Please help me to understand what would happen if plate-wearing knights went to war against the katana-bearing samurai.

Onin No Ran / Huge Armour
« on: May 08, 2008, 06:50:58 pm »
Similar to the Long sword VS. Katana thread. I was wondering how huge armour would work, as in a foot-tick of plate.

This sounds extreme, but it's for a story I plan on writing about a warrior race with incredible armour and weapons.

Note that the metal they use in the story is somewhat lighter than steel, and somewhat stronger.

Onin No Ran / Editing Onin No Ran 0.903 module.ini
« on: May 06, 2008, 12:46:35 am »
I recently tried to edit the module.ini for Onin No Ran (0.903 version). The game, I found, didn't work after the editing... I was wondering how much I am capable of editing it without the game crashing.

This is what I did:


[Original]                      ------------------------------                                      [Edit]

hero_wounded_treshold = 15                     -----             hero_wounded_treshold = 10
player_xp_multiplier = 2.0                           -----             player_xp_multiplier = 4.0
hero_xp_multiplier = 2.0                             -----             hero_xp_multiplier = 6.0
damage_interrupt_attack_treshold = 0.0      -----             damage_interrupt_attack_treshold = 5.0


Are any of these scripts capable of being edited without causing a crash?

Onin No Ran / Long-sword VS. Katana
« on: May 06, 2008, 12:36:49 am »
After reading the "Katana bashing and weapon discussion thread", I was wondering about how a western sword would do against a katana... I'm planning on making a story where someone uses katanas but is up against long swords and other such weapons, and I was wondering if a long sword could shatter a katana (and with how much difficulty, if it can?).

Since the Japanese (from what I've heard, at least) would've been smaller in the feudal era, from lack of meat, it would lead me to believe that the katana would be even shorter and therefore thinner than normal--making it supposedly easy for a well-made long sword to shatter a katana. I don't really have many facts on this subject, so I might be wrong.

I like both the long sword and the katana, I am not attempting to say one is better than the other. I merely wish to know out of curiosity, as well as for the good of my story.
