Bug #4977
Bug synopsis: New Armor Type
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.0
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2003-12-27, 20:01:40
Submitted by: Dorovan
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: I think that a new kind of armour would be nice. It would be called Mithril Plate Mail of Power. It would be about [+0, +10] <St +1, To +1>.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (245): There is already armor like that. the "of power" is a suffix which (SPOILER!!!!!) (does +20% to pp with no adjustment to the mana stat)

-- Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth (2004-12-08, 21:12:44)
Well. Why not. Though I would suggest change in the name - *something* of power is associated with items that add PP (as if halberds of "defense" weren't enough confusing already :)).

-- Sammael (2004-12-09, 14:15:19)
the subfix of power is a considerable idea.
oh, by the way, the plate armor doesn't exist, that protection might be a great addition in armors tree.

-- young chaos god (2004-12-10, 15:57:43)
yes it does! read the un-official guide if you want justification!

-- Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth (2004-12-17, 03:56:09)
OK, if the suffix of power already exist how about if this suffix name changes to "of might"?

-- young chaos god (2004-12-31, 22:19:23)
Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth is right. I myself have found plate mail in lesser vaults! *geesh*. The only thing different about this one is the +1 to ST and TO, which personally isn't really needed IMO.

-- Adam Ruggieri (2005-01-03, 22:44:30)
Yeah, go me! lol

-- Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth (2005-01-10, 23:33:25)
Unnecessary, IMO. There are enough armour types, there are enough objects that increase St and To... This armour wouldn't make a difference.

-- PORCO (2005-01-19, 18:11:05)
About the suffix: a suffix adding both to St and To could be called "of warriors". Why? Well, the tradition of computer RPGs... In the "Might and Magic" series (which have many anti-fans because of its extreme oldschoolism, but which I like nonetheless), "of warriors" items added some points to Might and Endurance (which are Strength and Toughness in ADOM). Similarly, there were items "of rogues", which added to Dexterity and Perception (if I remember correctly), and some other multiple suffixes. For example, "of the gods" items added one point to all stats.
I don't want to say that such suffixes should be introduced to ADOM, I just want to indicate that they exist in some other RPG. But well, maybe adding something like that to ADOM (or JADE) should be discussed?

-- Solar Scorch (2005-01-24, 00:01:18)
it's not a new kind of armor, only a subfix, "of might" which increases physical power, so why not?

-- young chaos god (2005-01-29, 18:23:00)
Yeah, where's the Jade forum!? (lol!)

-- Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth (2005-02-04, 19:36:11)
It would be a nice addition, gold made armors- helmets & swords that increases appeareance, which are acid & rust resistant

-- young chaos god (2005-03-07, 17:32:55)
prefix: Gold. ap(-2)-(+3) I think would be sufficient. but that should be placed in another post.

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!"

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
