Scrying system - Corpses
« on: September 14, 2020, 05:49:56 PM »
Greetings,

In the past year we've held numerous discussions regarding player vs player conflict and problems with the current system that has been put in place a decade ago. We have decided to make a few adjustments to our systems to hopefully solve some of these problems. The first such change is the implementation of scrying for corpses by speaking to Madam Vadoma, the Raunie in the Mist Camp.

For a price based on the dead character's level, the NPC will give a vague description of the domain where the corpse currently is (including the Mists) and its state (pristine, mutilated, remains). However, to balance this and still give weight to such deaths, this information won't be available until a certain amount of time has passed after the character's death based on their level, ranging from a week for level 2 characters to seven months for a level 20. Madame Vadoma will only be able to find the corpses of players who have logged in since the last server reset or crash since the corpse needs to be in-game to be found.

Here is a detailed table of the costs and delay before information on a corpse is available:

Spoiler: show


We are putting the final touches on this system but it should be implemented shortly. Like other systems, we value your feedback and encourage you to try it in game before giving us your thoughts on it.
