Thread: Mist Elves & Ratlings (spoilers)

  1. #1

    Default Mist Elves & Ratlings (spoilers)

    Let's start with the manual entries:

    Code:
    MIST ELVES -- Mist Elves are a truly ancient race, literally born from                              
    the mists of time. They are almost immortal and some of their ancient                               
    members are believed to have been present at the dawn of creation.                                  
    Their incredible lifespan gives them a very different and aloof outlook                             
    on life and civilization as they regard even Gray Elves as mere toddlers.                           
    Combined with the fact that Mist Elves are a very magical race, their
    bodies being made from magically solidified mist, they appear frightening,                          
    uncaring, cold and wise at the same time. They scoff at the views of the                            
    younger races and life doesn't mean much to them, having seen many empires                          
    rise and crumble within the span of a single Mist Elves life.                                       
                                                                                                        
    Mist Elves are even larger than Gray Elves but thin and frail beings.                               
    Their skin is almost white, their hair is pearly white and it seems to                              
    move with a slight breeze all the time. Their breath is misty and their                             
    eyes are pearly, violet, pink or yellow. Mist Elves move almost without                             
    sound. They physique is weak and they are not very strong. Additionally                             
    they are the most fairy-like of elves, going so far that the prolonged                              
    touch of mundane metal burns their skin like acid. Thus their prefer to                             
    wear and wield weapons and armaments of precious metals, like mithril                               
    or adamantium. Despite their weak physique they are dangerous warriors                              
    as the mist-like makeup of their body greatly reduces damage taken in                               
    melee combat.
    
    Grey Elves despise Mist Elves, viewing them as uncaring beings devoid                               
    of emotion and lacking the general elven love for life. Mist Elves just                             
    chuckle about the antics of their baby cousins. Mist Elves, having been                             
    lifted from the mists of time themselves during creation, have a very                               
    specific grasp of necromancy. Most of them - if not drawn towards Chaos
    due to boredom - hate undead and are very powerful in combatting them by                            
    using their magical powers to wreak great harm upon undead. Mist Elf                                
    necromancers are able to create special creatures and engage in an act of                           
    creation rather than in infusing dead beings with unholy energies, called                           
    white necromancy by themselves.                                                                     
                                                                                                        
    Mist Elves are the rarest of all elves. You will encounter a thousand                               
    Gray Elves before you see one Mist Elf. They are rumored to live in misty                           
    areas high in mountain valleys or deep in the hills but no mortal known                             
    has ever seen one of their settlements. Some sages believe them to be                               
    physical manifestations of the dreams of gods, others regard them as                                
    leftovers from the act of creation itself. Mist Elves just chuckle and                              
    move on at such useless ponderings.                                                                 
                                                                                                        
    Mist Elves train in the following skills: Literacy, Stealth,                                        
    Concentration, Dodge, Alertness and Necromancy
    Code:
    RATLING -- Ratlings are one of the numerous yet rarely noticed races.                               
    These humanoid lean and wiry rats thrive in larger settlements and                                  
    enjoy interacting with other races. Whether they are the result of an                               
    ancient lich trying to create a servitor race, chaos-spawned descendents                            
    of plain rats from the dawn of time or just one more example of the                                 
    abundance of life forms in Ancardia still is a matter of dispute with                               
    sages. No matter what they are accepted as skilled traders, quick                                   
    warriors and crafty thieves - acceptance in the latter case meaning                                 
    careful observation and quick reaction from other races.                                            
            Ratlings grow to about 5 and a half feet in size and weight                                 
    90 to 120 punds. They usually sport brown hair although black, gray and                             
    a rare albino white are not unheard of. Their eyes are either black,                                
    brown, yellow or red in color, black being dominant.                                                
                                                                                                        
    Ratlings train in the following skills: Appraising, Climbing, Detect                                
    Item Status, Haggling, Stealth, Survival and Swimming.

    It seems ratlings don't like ratling merchant food any more than other races I think I'll RFE that.

    The bard starting pets are new monsters. Gargantuan rat and mist wolf.
    You steal a scroll labelled HITME. The orc hits you.

    Ratlings skillset is pretty dreadful...
    Hoping to win with every class, doomed. Archer, Barbarian, Bard, Beastfighter, Druid, Elementalist, Farmer, Fighter, Monk, and ULE Priest down.

    Roger the lvl 1 mist elven wizard visited 1 place and was burned to death by the touch of inpure metal after 2 turns of playing.

    Mental note: Check the material of your rings before you equip them.

    Mist elf stuff:
    Mist elf assassins start with new mithril short swords.
    Mist elf archers/rangers start with a pile of mithril arrows.
    "You need a lump of clay to use white necromancy."
    Chaotic mist elves can use necromancy as normal.
    Mist elf leveling rate is fairly slow... maybe half as much as trolls. Ratling is about the same as orc.
