on the other hand, a glowing mage might not be a bad idea


Moonlight flitters in night dark, the unheard sound of elven feet. Firelight flickers in bar bright, the sloshing of Dwarven brew. No light but that of eye, the dragon warden endures.

Is that a glowing mage's stick in your pocket or you're just happy to see me?

actually it's kinda a good idea....it would make added light, for those dark dungeons, or dark moonless nights wandering the land with your scorpion boots of nightvision, and the Helmut of Radience..... added visual area,
can you see now....

Or just put glowing pants on a spear and use it as a torch during the night.

Actually, yes, you are right Jurak, besides just looking cool, glowing weapons and armor can have good practical use in dark areas.

I think my mind's too clean to fully understand the meaning of your post

What if an evil character will have glowing eyes which are used like two flashlights?

I pity the evil assassin who's trying to sneek up on people in the dark. They'd have to keep their eyes closed so as to not be spotted.

Creeping forward... creeping forward... I hope there's no rakes there. What's this? Oh, it's a fence. Over the fence... creeping forward... What's this? Oh, it's human! "Excuse me, are you Kirnmath? I've got a contract here for your head."

Bleah... I'm thinking more along the lines of some very warped version of Sailormoon.

I think more detail could be put into summoning. In a sense, DD1 was entirely based on summoning the God of Chaos, right? I want to be able to summon more than a dreadknight and some skeletons...

By the wa<y, why is summoning only related to some dark, deadly figures ?

I mean that summoning Skeletons, Demons, Lichs, whatever is quite normal in an RPG. Everything nice dark and gritty.

Why aren't some lighter creatures to be summoned ? Fairies, for example ?

Are RPG players so that they just can'tcope with "cute-looking" creatures, especiually whwn they are summoned ?

And why do the big bad bosses often so poverly cool and the "Good guys" so boring ?

Time to recall some clichés, I'd say ...

Yeah... I remember bitching about the cool and ugly stuff some time ago. Glad to find another mate who shares my sentiments. C'mon, even the most ordinary of soldiers will find ways to look presentable, so that the army can have self-esteem.

Why not just put in some light stuff like faeries, unicorns, etc.? That way... players can choose whether to summon them or not. I'd love to see monkeys or orang-utans, though. It gets boring having the same fantasy stuff again and again: isn't fantasy about having imagination?

Edit: Just 'cos the setting for a certain dimension is European medieval, doesn't also mean that other dimensions should be the same either. It'd be nice to see eh, Africans, Asians, etc.

I think that comes from the fact that necromancy requires bodies, and bringing pepole back from the dead isn't particulary nice. The same goes for demons, they allready exist (and they're all evil! EVIL!), and you can bring them up by useing a gate. How would you summon (say) a fairy? Bring her here from Neverland through a gate? And wouldn't be cruel to rip her from that world into our cold, hard world?
