Question about Usurper Stats

Post by Fenris Wolf » Fri Sep 15, 2006 7:39 pm

What exactly is the function of the Usurper stats? I know that Strength directly relates to attack power and Wisdom probably relates to mana pool...but what do Agility, Charisma, Dexterity, Stamina, and Defense do?

I was hoping someone else would comment here, but here goes.
These are my opiions, not neccarily true tho.
Strength and hitpoints are fairly straight forward. one caveat is in final encounters.
Your strength helps determine supreme being's hitpoints,
Your hitpoints helps determine supreme being's strength,
the multiplication factor is somewhere about 7 times your values.
mana is used in magical use.
Agility and dexterity seem to affect attacking and dodging abilities.
Defense effects how hard it is to hit you,
Stamina not sure, as you never require food nor do you auto-heal, but may well affect your barfighting endurance.
From the What's new, I found
Charisma is good to have in haggle situations.

Whenever I am in serious play, i try to keep as even a balance as possible on all attributes.

just my quick opinion, mileage may vary, and I'm certain I'll change my thoughts soon.:)

Ahh, that makes sense. Stamina I've found does help in brawling, bar fights, fighting Grull's sons when stealing barrels, fighting for gym control, and fist fighting in the dorm when you wake up the residents. The other things I never knew, thank you, I guess they're all good to have then. 8)

Hah, and there's the King from the game I play.

Speaking of which... is there a way to change your name on Usurper .20d Classic Mode? I don't know why I went with a different name than what I always use online... stupid names. :(

You are pretty much stuck with the character name you started with for this character.
NOW having said that!!
If your on a good basis with your SYSOP, and
IF your SYSOP knows how to use the PLAYER editor, they could change just your character name.
BUT this would probably mess up the Usuper data files, where messages and such are stored.
Also team's, relations, etcetera...
I'll do just a little testing and get back to this subject.

If I were your SYSOP though, I'd have reduce your gold in bank and in hand by 50%, and probably reduce most of you abilities and possessions.:twisted: I'd probably change your character to being a gnome jester as well. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

HAR HAR Har!! you re probably correct. Often Usurper players do not make good SYSOP's because you have to keep the game and the BBS seperate. But there are some that can do the two roles fairly and seperately.
