PostPosted: Sat Mar 21, 2015 9:18 pm    Post subject: Guild Banners

There are now guild banners, which you use by typing "banner". This functionality is similar to berserker grim ward, if that helps.

The guild banner is the way of actually applying the guild reward you get when you "accept guild". Although you do have a 'guild commision' affect when you use this, you need to place the guild banner to receive the bonus from it. You also need to return to the guild banner to regain the bonus (it lasts 12 ticks from initial application)?.


This may seem like a little unnecessary a change for the solo player, but there are some key differences with this - because the guild banner and its bonus does apply to groupmates as well, so you can basically share guild rewards. Also with this change all the 'quest reward' from questing are the same as the general guild reward was.

Code:

BANNER'
Syntax: banner
Syntax: banner reclaim
Syntax: banner customize <argument>

Mortals may from time to time choose to display their allegiance to
their guildhall by deploying their guild's banner.  This is essentially a
cosmetic flag, but the banner also serves as a conduit for the guild
commision bonus to be bestowed on the mortal, as well as rallying those
he travels with.  Only one banner may be placed at a time.

Guild banners may be enhanced by completing many quests, including both
their affects and the possibility of personalizing their appearance.


Customization is available at 100 quests

Sweet jesus, they work on an entire group?

Also - you can pick up your banner, so it can be replaced, to refresh the time limit.

For example, syntax 'banner' then 'banner reclaim'. This way, if you're moving around, you can reset it where you need it during the action.

I will be adding a timer after reclaiming it, so that you can't deploy it instantly. There's supposed to be a risk of this banner being located. Trying to stimulate a bit of pk'ing obviously.

A nice use for the banner is to make it something demeaning and deploy it by corpse

On topic, I think I love this change. A bit aside, I like the idea of the desecration banner, and I wonder why people forgot about stomping corpses. I miss when everyone did that.

Interesting change.

I don't stomp corpses because it's not immediately obvious. You'd have to 'examine corpse'.
