Ohh... those are crystals, not colorful candles. Heh. >_>;

So what approximate level are the middling and difficult monsters supposed to be? I assume weaklings are level one.

You're level 9, so the weaklings would be level 1-3, the middling would be level 8-10 ish, and the strong would be 15-20 or higher if you wish.

For someone level 30, all of those would be weak, so for a level 30 the middling would be 28-35 and the strong would be 40+.

It's basically a general indication that "there are monsters out there for you to fight, regardless of your level, that will give you a challenge, and there are monsters out there that you can mop the floor with, and everything in between."

Don't worry too much about the specific levels of them, unless it matters to your character specifically or something.

I see. So a level one player and a level 30 player would both do equivalent damage to the same monster.

Not quite. A level 1 and a level 30 would both do equivalent damage on a Goblin Warrior, but if the level 30 attacked the same goblin warrior that the level 1 was attacking, the level 30 would wipe the floor with it, as to him it would be a goblin weakling.

This is all turning out more complicated than I had expected, so maybe I'll change that system in the next wave.

To be honest, I kind of like the system the way it is. It's only complex if you're really trying to coordinate your fights with all the other player characters (us), where it feels like the proposed system was designed around the notion that every player can adjust the non-stated elements of the fights he or she chose to participate in, adjusting it to be interesting to write about and read, while not affecting other player characters and potentially invalidating or arguing against their posts.

It sounds like it was written to be character-friendly, with more respect to their playability, than a strict monster strength system (static levels, etc.).

So a level one could go around and tap all of the monsters on the shoulder and then everyone would be fighting weedles?

The way it is, is that on the field there are monsters ranging from level 1 to level, say, 60. A level 1 player would, hopefully, be fighting monsters within their strength range. A level 30 should also be doing the same. Neither would want to challenge the level 60, though if you want to, by all means go for it, just remember you'll probably be stomped.

The point is that, for every given level, there are monsters around that are no challenge, there are monsters around that will challenge you, and there are monsters around that will stomp your shit into the ground. The three "categories" I present are those three options available to you. So no, a level 1 player going around tapping everyone on the shoulder would just get the level 1 killed by something level 20+ eventually, it won't alter the levels of the monsters.

So yeah, basically what Exangelus was saying; it's designed around telling a good story and playing it by rough challenge levels, instead of having "here are some level 10s, here are some level 20s, here are some level 30s, and the level 45 player in the corner has nothing to challenge them."

Hai from our favorite treasure-hunting long-lost Twin Blade!

So, since my duties on a dying site suddenly left me with a lot of free time... I'm in. Been a while since I added to my troph- er, I mean, rare item collection. So I'll be writing up this post, since I'll be in the car for the next eight hours on the second half of the trip up to Michigan. Yay for "I'm bored" motivation!

For those with status effects...

Goblins will take all status effects at a 40% chance of it taking hold. Mad Grass takes all but Sleep at 35%. Corrupted Souls can only be hit by Confuse at a 20% chance.

Also, my upcoming post will have Takua posted over the Chalice, handing out heals, Dek Ganz, or OrGan Dons to keep monsters off the Chalice or to weaken those that we're fighting. So the odds are quite good that he's going to bash a monster that you're fighting at some point, or weaken it. You're more than welcome to use any of those spells in your posts, given that he's trying to keep monsters from sneaking in again by flying over our objective and tagging/casting spells on those that come in range. We should also probably coordinate a strategy to keep monsters away. Does anyone want to tank monsters while he pounds away at them?

Or do we just want to fight on our own like usual without a strategy to keep the horde away?

Also, if anyone wants Rig Geam or Ap Do (or, coming up, Ap Vorma and Rig Saem), just lemme know.
