Would it be possible to make an object such as a fountain to gain skills at level 20? lets say you have loads of experience and want to be more powerful. You go to the fountain and drink the water. The fountain will deduct a large portion of experience and at the same time give you a random stat (HP,Str,Dex..). But that wouldnt be complete without some impossible way of getting to the fountain (Having a group of oh say 10 lvl 20 peeps sweep through some beefed up monsters in a secret area and then only having 1 person get to drink the water because the fountain dries up) Sound good or do you think im insane? icon_twisted.gif

I have yet to see a group of monsters that one lvl 20 cant get by without killing, with the rpotections and heals an acs of this game youd have to put in a bunch of lvl 120s to stop one lvl 20, this might be a good place to insert some dragons?

well, you obviously weren't in Kravenwood when Gesh transformed into this impossible spear warrior thing, then a massive corrupted green dragon and finally the ancient chaos dragon. I died so many times St. Peter was sick of the sight of me! icon_biggrin.gif

Also if you have more than the maximum number of feats for your race/class combo your char becomes invalid. I can probably be scripted arounf but I don't se it being easy.

Theory:

I can create an object that is only available to players with X experience. It will basically represent to Dysotopia that you are above a level 20. This item will allow you to gain abilities abov and beyond that of your typical level 20 character...whether it is additional stats or auras or whatever...it can all be done. Time is my only enemy. icon_wink.gif Eventually we will compensate for the level cap by allowing mages to create new spells and fighters to forge new weapons...eventually...right now let's not forget we're early alpha and still have a lot of CORE to develop before we go creating things for high levels...also bear in mind that when this is beta...you will spend 250+ game hours just getting up to level 15...let alone to the mighty level 20! Anyone beyind a level 20 will be seen as other characters as a demi-god character able to do things most people can't even comprehend at this point...the rewards will be great, but the road to high levels will be long and take a very dedicated person to reach...

I realize that many people will probably leave Dysotopia when it reaches this point but those serious about becoming a powerful character in a persistant world will stick around and keep pushing their abilities...perseverence is well rewarded. We'll also be getting a lot of new more hardcore playerbase when this happens...*stops to think of all the dynamic changes this MOD has seen so far in it's lifetime, starting from a 2x2 area with a all giving dragon run on a 56k dialup to a local vault frenzy for players to a PvP pit arena onto it's own Forgotten Realms entity*...think of what's to come!

So to answer your thread....eventually it'll happen where a level 20 can advance beyiond level 20...by accumulating extra Xp they will gain access to special areas and new tools and items that will allow then to continue growing.

I like the idea of slow lvling, as long as you can get many new things at one level...


Let me guess, you get 1-5 xp points per kill, right?

the default exp was way too low, even for slow lvling, it wuld take 2 hours of playing to gain 1000 exp, even by facing really advanced monsters.

Remember although we want slow lvling we dont wanna sink to be as slow as tarala.

Their is a rule book that has been released by e3 for characters that are about lvl 20. Since NWN is based on e3 isn't this a logical guide book to upper level characters.

Man you people are good at getting off topic.

Well if all else fails you can make a search for the ___ quest dropping off clues & awarding experience. Then you can finish it off with a battle & reward the group or people that finished it item upgrades icon_biggrin.gif Dont forget that you can have random quests for people intrested in RPing as well as scheduled ones... Just a thought (Cuz I live in the middle of the pacific ocean)
