Enhanced Client Action – Target by Resource

Found in the ‘targeting’ section of the ‘actions’ menu and used in macros, this function is a boon to many characters. Its use is governed by the tool type. Mining More obviously used to mine ore, placing a shovel or pick in the box also gives the miner the option to mine sand, provided the appropriate book has been purchased from Ter Mur and read by the miner.  Less obviously it also gives characters undertaking the quest The Witches Apprentice the option to dig graves for Bones Buried In Hallowed Ground.

1 – The Locket of Winter

By EM Malachi Ages ago… The winds screamed as they raced past the tall mountain peak. Even protected from the worst of it by magic, the climber felt the numb of deep winter. Still, Drogeni continued her climb. At the top, the mage dropped her pack and removed what she needed for the ritual. Drogeni opened a delicate silver locket and placed it on the snow. It was the work of a decade’s research and a year’s enchantment. Standing tall against the howling winds, Drogeni began to sing. The anthem was filled with magic, inviting the winter itself to dance.

Forest of the Dark

Something odd was going on in Britannia, people were being reported missing in several towns, no one knew anything. The day following these reports Jaana appeared outside Empath Abbey in Yew. I recognised the name and decided to see if she knew anything. I opened a conversation with her by greeting her by name, “hello Jaana”. “Hello!

I can ask about those lost from Yew, but if you could travel to MINOC, that would help.” I asked her […]

11 – The Dark Monk

By EM Malachi The Dark Monk I was lost in the forest. My journey had been one disaster after another. I had lost most of my supplies fording an icy river. The string of my bow snapped trying to bring down the elk that would have been dinner. With the replacement strings at the bottom of the river, I could hunt nothing on the trek to the logging camp. If I was even going in the right direction… It was nightfall at the end of the third hungry day when I saw the campfire. I was desperate, so I approached […]

Melee Damage Increase

Damage Increase falls into two types, both types have an overall cap of 300%, however they are calculated differently: First, damage bonus, this comes from your stats, your skills and any items with the magic item property ‘damage increase’ and is additional to the base damage of the weapon wielded. The chivalry spell ‘divine fury’ also falls into this group. Second, damage modifier, this comes from slayer properties, special moves, special abilities and cast spells and is a multiplier. Damage Bonus Tactics Damage Bonus% = Tactics ÷ 1.6 (Add 6.25% if Tactics >= 100) Anatomy Damage Bonus% = (Anatomy ÷ […]

10 – The Three

By EM Malachi A page from the journal of Queen Helena of Rhiannon Something is very wrong. My husband, the great and mighty Praecor Loth, rides into battle with the three I trust least in the world. When the Magician Umbria came to court, I feared that he was a charlatan. Oh, if only that were so! In truth, he is a terrifyingly powerful necromancer. I have witnessed the dark arts he wields in his tower. One of his failures still skitters in the dungeon, begging for a death that can never come. When Umbria looks at me with those […]

09 – The Black Gate

By EM Malachi 10/19/20 The Black Gate The sky was a swirl of colors, as raw mana poured in from the other worlds in orbit around Sosaria’s sun. Eight columns focused the magic toward a massive slab of blackrock etched on the border with runes: the Black Gate. The Fellowship forces fought with zeal and desperation. The Black Gate was everything Brother Batlin had promised, and failure meant death or imprisonment. The cult was not alone. Humanity had other enemies, brought here by the Fellowship’s influence. Britannia’s forces were much smaller. The location was discovered at the last minute, and […]
