  1. Three curse spells are too much, right, I was thinking of just one spell with curse status and using the other two for spells that buff undead in some way or do something to the living. Spendthrift and Paranoia spells don't have a scroll you can learn them from, not sure if those work when you debuff an enemy with them. Anyway, goth doesn't exist as a cost type so it would require deeper hacking, I could easily have skills or spells consume oberyths, though, we'll see if more people are interested in that.
  2. The trouble with ghosts is they already have float, I'll see what happens if I remove it, we will probably get something that looks like a rag rolling in the dirt, might be funny
  3. I don't think renaming existing units will be possible at all, unless I turn into a mips jedi at some point and find some way to 1) make the whole thing work and 2) add it to the shop interface. I could just circumvent the whole thing if I manage to add non-human units to shops, probably, it would make the dragon part of deneb recruitment kinda pointless, though, and I'm sure everybody would get bummed out something awful about that one. Just remembered you asked what's the point of mage pants at some point, arkhiatros pants grant 10% to all racial resistances and the ones for mages have 10% res all elements, which is pretty nice. EDIT: Honestly, no idea about implementing monkey grip, maybe the force will lead me to it if that thing above happens.
  4. Nah, I don't want to change the direction of a class without a very good reason, they merged the male and female tamers into one class here and that's fine because those are very similar, changing a dragoon into a dragon supporter turns him into something entirely different. I'd like to keep the avd bonus on fists because that's the only thing you'd want to use the pronged weapons for, it makes sense, and they're also dead useful that way on classes that don't attack much but are getting attacked a lot, like clerics. A lot of mage classes can use a dagger so it needs some kind of caster bonus and mnd also grants some spell damage, for other classes silence has a broader application as an on hit effect than, dunno, MP leech or enfeeble which would be good only for casters. I could give spellbooks enfeeble on hit, though, that would fit.
  5. I don't think beast master is really a situational class because he isn't encounter-dependent, you decide if you want to bring beasts or dragons into battle or not. It was a problem for Dragoons so they got good stats and that nifty jump skill, they aren't a dead weight when the enemy has no monsters around like in vanilla. Sure, dragoons could recruit dragons in first Ogre Battle but that's where their love affair with wildlife ended, in other games they have been either a dragon slayer or just a strong attacker with a bit of magic. I haven't been taking too many liberties with the class if it has an established image in the franchise, if I made warlocks into a semi-frontliner that's because they work that way in KoL and OB64.
  6. Yeah, they have to be heavy, now that they aren't consumable we're supposed to imagine the unit carrying a stack and retrieving them when possible, kind of, somehow. They're the strongest 1h ranged option after pistols and fire in an arc which is always useful, but I agree there's a bit more room there if we account for the weight, I could make them a bit stronger. Probably faster too, it kinda makes sense they should be the fastest ranged weapon because you don't have to reload, that would compensate for the weight somewhat.
  7. Thanks, Hart, I'll be sure to do that. Yeah, those visual changes to some of the more notable characters had a somewhat mixed reception, they kinda grow on you and being able to tell named characters from generics is nifty but I'm not adamant about keeping them. Scrolls were a bit cheesy, I think, this way the class spell selection is more meaningful, I can also make some spells more readily available and cheaper so you don't have to blow your bank if you got a ton of casters around.
