Bug #4963
Bug synopsis: Old Barbarian gift (spoily?)
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2004-01-30, 00:32:22
Submitted by: Jason Jackson
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: well any ways if you get courage before you finish the quest that he gives you all that he does is give you a normal iron two handed sword. So i was wondering if you could switch it so that he gives you something else like:

- an artifact: not neccessarily powerful but useful nonetheless like "Grog" or a shield or something

- a companion: he is impressed by your ability and wants to join you on your quest (only if 70+ courage skill)

- unlimited training: sorta like the carpenter

I think that this would be an interesting variation.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (81): This would be rather interesting. He may be old, but strong and sturdy.. though about his stats?.. that would be up in the air. The training concept is nice too.. he could "train" the courage skill for you, but not with money.. perhaps with item exchange, or optional quests? Even throw in a messenger or two, that could visit you randomly, telling you that the "old barbarian feels you are ready for the next step" or something similar.. Make messengers more frequent then just the one for the pyrimid. I like Ideas involving making ADOM more versitile with skills and events. ^_^

hmmm, how about if he gives you a quest in that cave filled of greater claw bugs if you have a surpass a required quantity of points, and courage 100.

Hmm, I like this RFE. Especially Adam Rugieri's idea. This implies a master - apprentice relation between the OB and th PC. I can imagine him as Obi-Wan... ;)

I'd just make him give a better weapon; say, lawful adamantium two-handed sword of the sun, adamantium halberd of the eagle, and so on.

-- Note from Thomas Biskup: One or more comments for this report have been banned because they contain HTML code and this website recently has been spammed by idiots trying to swamp the website with advertisements.

I think that would be good. cause then the OB would become a real part of the game. you probably don't understand, so I'll explain. there are alot of places in adom which are just done if you feel like it. and/or you're bored. such as the ruined city. and so I think that if we did some tweaking to the OB. he would become something that most characters did. give him some quests etc...then the OB would become a real part of ADOM PC's.

Hi, I recently went on a trip and saetyd in a houseboat rental. We saetyd there for 5 nights and the last morning I woke up itching my back but didn\'t think much of it. We flew home, got home late and went right to sleep. 10 hours later I noticed bites on my back in a straight line which I\'ve read is the tell-tale sign of bed bugs. I immediately unpacked everything, washed dried all clothes, and the sheets/blankets on my bed. I ran to the store to get rubbing alcohol, sprayed it on my empty bags, stuffed them in giant ziploc bags, and stored them outside. I also washed the clothes that were sitting on the floor next to our bags. I then vacuumed the whole apartment and sprayed my mattress with alcohol. I even opened the windows in my bedroom and turned off the heat in hopes to freeze and bugs overnight (it got down to 36F and I slept in the guest bedroom on the other side of the apartment). We inspected the zippers/folds in our bags and found nothing. I have not seen evidence of bed bugs, other than the bites that I got the last day of our trip. We stored our bags, inside the houseboat, about 25 feet from the bed on the hardwood floor so I\'m hoping any bed bugs would not travel that far to be able to be hitchhikers! Have I done everything possible?! Is it possible that I am bed bug free? I\'m worried that in the 10 hours of our bags sitting on the bedroom floor that the bugs could have escaped and spread around the apartment. Do PCPs do any preventative treatment for bed bugs? Thanks!!

The Universal Principles of Design Thomas Biskup recommends: The Universal Principles of Design
"A great book about design principles, no matter whether you are designing games, software or tools. I like the two-page structure: First the design principle is explained and then you get real world examples of how the principle can be applied. Combined with clear writing, a crisp layout and streamlined editing this makes for great reading!"
