    We don't plan on adding any more content, so this should be considered the final version (though hotfixes will be applied if needed).

    I know, and I've contacted Tal about this, and we're working on a solution.

    The readme has been moved to another location so you should no longer encounter this problem. Check the initial post for the new link.

    [​IMG] Awesome to see this again! Am downloading now and will have a play later on :D

    Have had a play around, is looking good! Items are powerful, but not over the top, and cost accordingly. I haven't encountered any scripting errors, though the odd typo has crept in here or there (have only had one or two jump out at me, one being in Aikanaros' item, can't remember the others offhand, could look again I suppose :xx:)

    Overall it's been fun cutting through the hordes of hostile forces with items from other members. Reminds me of the good old battles in the chat room where we'd frequently steal one anothers weapons and run off with them :D

    I'd very much appreciate if you reported any form of typo, scripting error or whatever you might encounter :).

    That's what I thought when I first came up with the idea :D.

    An update? Good good. I shall remember to update before starting another run of this game (whenever that may be).

    Lol no, unfortunately there's no pithril armour. Although I did actually happen to stumble upon the old Pink Dragon Disciples of the World Unite! thread earlier today and was struck by a severe case of nostalgia; and I must admit the thought of adding some 20 more items, including some of the legendary pithril items, pushing the total amount to 100, struck me briefly :p.

    Hello, and congratulations for the new version of the mod. (even though I do not have an item of named after me, ah well...) I have the previous version installed right now, and have visited Tal once in my current game. Say, if I uninstall my current and install the new version, will it work without problems?

    Also, about typos and mistakes...Quarterstaff+3 Calm to the Chaos, this is one awesome weapon for my wild mage! However, item history is wrong, IMHO, as it says it is granted to master of Enchantment school, whereas it is pretty obvious that this staff is intended for wild mages and wild mages only! (alas, my wild mage can wield it!) I wonder if this bug fixed in new version? I have checked the new read me and it is stated wrongly even in there!

    Also, icicles throwing dagger do not expend in my game, and they have a base attack rate of 4/round which is overkill, considering the damage capability of these babies, if I cast STR and Imp. Haste I can way laste to any enemy doing crazy amounts of damage with this weapon (with 8 attacks/round for a mage!) Readme says its non-expending bug is fixed though, what about attack rate?

    You should go for it!

    Complete with Pithril Plate granting a Charisma bonus due to 'cuteness'. :rolleyes:

    Thanks!

    I think you should be able to just install over the old one, at least I havne't encountered any bugs doing so.

    Arh you are correct. That staff is supposed to be usable by Wild mages and have a wrong description attached to it.

    Oh, it looks like it adds a cumulative attack/round modifier instead of a flat one (all throwing daggers in the game adds a flat value modifier to your number of attacks per round), and it wrongly uses str bonus as well.

    I can have both items fixed by tomorrow, I reckon. Have guests coming over tonight so can't be today.

    Actually, the 'original' Pithril armour added an aura of ugliness that negated the dreaded aura of cuteness :p.

    The readme that pops up for the mod says version 1.3, I'm assuming that's because the readme hasn't been replaced, and the download link is actually 2.0?

    I'm about to start another run through, just want to make sure :).

    woops, might accidentally have bundled the wrong readme with the mod :p.

    Rest assured though, it is version 2.0 that is online. Gonna mail a minor update to Tal one of the days.

    Quick question: I have been to the Promenade, if I install afterwards, will it get screwed up? I know that that usually happens, but I was just wondering.

    It might. I wouldn't recommend it, but you can try if you really want to.
