PostPosted: Tue Jun 21, 2005 1:34 pm    Post subject: New shopkeepers added to Winter.

It saddens me to announce the arrival of new competition for my auctions.
Rumors from the far-off land of Winter tells of the best weapons money can
buy being forged by the Metalsmith in the Faction of Steel. And songs are
being sung of a long-suffering thief who has eluded capture in the Faction
of Blood, who would like nothing more than to unload his ill-begotten cache
of the most powerful randomized equipment in Thera. If you have not spent
all your gold at my auctions in Seringale and you wish to tempt fate and
death, you can always bring your hard-earned gold with you on your next trip
to Winter.

Remember that the frozen wastelands of Winter can be reached through the
Seringale Nexus during a time of surge. Fierce beasts and unknown treasures
await on you the other side, as does death for the unwary or the unlucky.

Just a few samples to whet your appetite. You can definitely roll better stuff than the ones here -- for example, the +39 hp ring above could be had with no penalties at all -- but those will give you some idea of what the Winter gambler is like. His bonuses aren't necessarily higher, but you're more likely to find items either fewer penalties or with additional bonuses from him. It's quite possible to roll an item with two separate high-powered bonuses at Winter. Bring your life savings to Winter, and try not to leave it all on your corpse when you die.

We've also fixed the AC for random items from all shoppies so that they're competitive with AC from regular items. In fact, if you have a poor roll now, often your item's AC will be increased to somewhat compensate for it. If you've been gambling so far (and I've seen a number of you gambling addicts out there already), here's your opportunity to reroll your items some more to get ones with new improved AC. Yes, these changes (and also the new TASK command) are like passing out crack to schoolkids. You're welcome.

I'm not at all sure that, for example, going to Winter and shelling out a fat wad of cash to roll the hitroll equivalent of a frost burned is "uber". Remember that gambling comes with a lot of failures.

True, but if you're alone and can't seem to either a) find the frost-burned, or b) get it yourself, then this is a nice and seemingly far less risky avenue to pursue.

aha I think it's easier to pk someone for a frost burned, than take 2 hours to go to winter only during surge.
