hover over your portrait in the upper right and it displays the area you're in

I'm quite aware.

This is useful for logs.

Can we get a handful more templar's at Ste. Mere des Larmes? Like 2-3. There's currently just a single lone templar.

I would like more fancy hats.

Hats that are not cloaks, but hat-hats.

Pretty ones, too.

Certainly not imperative but it's something I think about during the cold winter nights.

Cloak-hats don't track the character's head movements, so actual-hats are preferable.

If someone wants to make such a model we are always interested but we rarely generate new modeling content.

Spellcraft will reduce the DC of using scrolls by 2 when you invest 5 hard ranks into it - But this is not mentioned in either Spellcraft's skill description, nor Use Magic Device's - Though oddly it's mentioned on the wiki of all places.






Would be advisable to add it to the descriptions in-game I would think.
Active: Vorrala Dalael

Shelved: Dirge Driftwood - Jezebel Redcherry - Silf Argyros - Ledewif Oberholtz

Closured: Razik Slepnel - Azaulia Curantus - Gavril Dragnea

I'll update the Use Magic Device description to indicate Spellcraft's synergy when using scrolls, and change it to increase the UMD skill rather than decrease the DC.

Mordekainens Disjunction to be added to Beguiler Spell List

Pros:
They have the full extent of dispel spells except this one, sorta makes sense.
It would add to their support capabilities.

Cons:
It's a powerful spell, it's not like they're going without with current capabilities.

I'd do it myself if I knew how. I imagine it's not super easy.

Anyone knows any good resources to get started doing stuff like that, feel free to reach out

Is there a possibility to add head 161 as a hood option? Would be nice to be able to take on and off a veil and there are similiar heads with masks as hood options :) And I think it already should have all the color options if made into a hood?

The downside on using heads as helmets is that the hair and skin channels on PLT textures (how dyes work) isn't available and uses a different palette than leather, cloth, and metal.

I had made a few different hood models with this intention and while you can get close by manually setting the colors but it's not quite the same.

Indeed, but seeing there is a masquarade mask close to it, it would be nice to be able to use this instead so that ones character can actually remove the veil without the need to go change your face :) It's a luxury thing I know, but think it would be nice

For this purpose, I'd really like to see the @customize command distances from the OOC room. I'd like to be able to use some dynamic appearances with head models to their fullest extent without having to excuse myself to a private area with a full rest trigger such as an inn room or common area. This becomes most prominent when playing female characters trying to pursue utilizing certain head models, such as listed above, and when attempting to apply makeup. These things do not necessarily require an Inn room to do, and are the single most common usage of the feature. If this is abused, it should be dealt with as an abuse, rather than restricting the command to there.

The problem is that this veil would have to work for all sorts of heads for all races, phenotypes and genders, which is impossible with a helmet.

Some more options for turn spirit for voodans. Plant and vermin came in mind. If it's not source material that's fine

Perhaps, but since there already is a handful of helmet options with the exact same restriction I imagine it isnt that big a problem? I think I can count some... 5+ helmet options just of the top of my head so it was more i felt it fitting better and also not going to the OOC lounge to visually unveil

I'd prefer if being the best counterspeller was left for sorcerers, a beguiler/spontaneous caster having mordenkainens for free (no requirement to learn the spell at cost; no memorized dedication or limited choice decision) is awfully strong.

Disjunction would be a good addition and I find it agreeable that PWK seems very strange for a Beguiler to have.

The power words are enchantment spells, beguiler's bread and butter. Disjunction meanwhile would be a massive power creep with no downside.
