nomad veil
Note #16953

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 @ 02:04
It looks like the nomad veil item 2106828332 has some color 
code capital N's in the name before and after the worlds nomad 
veil: NnomadN NveilN -- this makes folks like me who haven't 
seen the item before try to identify it with keywords nnomad 
and nveil thinking it's part of the item. Please remove the extra 
N's or add keywords to include them if the N's were intentional.
Thanks!

I'm a cleric who just got this spell and read the help file.
It seems the help file was written ONLY for thieves. It even 
mentions clerics... but not like they can use the skill.
I recommend changing this help file to reflect all of the 
classes that can use it. Perhaps it is out of date.

>This is no longer the case.

This statement is false. It is still the case that a clan who chooses not to
participate in PK in any form can choose to have the NOPK flag.
 
OPK is an indiviaul choice, not a clan choice. If a person chooses to join a
NOPK clan, it's possible that they do not want to deal with PK at all. However,
a player can elect to go OPK without affecting the clan's status as a NOPK
clan.
 
If OPK isn't listed in 'help clan' (I haven't read it in forever), then maybe
it does need to mentioned in the help file that NOPK clan members can still
elect to go OPK.

The first paragraph of "help clan" says as follows:

Clans that do not want to take part in PK in any form whatsoever can
choose to have the NOPK flag.

This is no longer the case. OPK is an option in all clans. The help
file should reflect this.

Target is appropriate, since frenzy can be cast on a target.  Can understand
it being confusing, though; maybe 'the frenzied player will be easier to hit'?

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 @ 04:29
The help for frenzy is :

This spell fills the target with righteousness, holy wrath and an insatiable
bloodlust. In this blood-hazed state, blows will land more easily, and much
harder, but as little heed is paid to personal safety, the target will
be easier to hit. This spell may only be cast on a target of the same
alignment as the caster.

documenting wis effect on healing potions
Note #16938
posted on Typos
Saturday, March 9, 2019 @ 12:43
It may not be clear to someone that healing potions are casting magical
spells on you using your stats (as opposed to, say, just healing you).
Is the effect of the Wis stat on heal potion effectiveness documented anywhere?

Help wisdom says:
"The amount of healing granted by heal and similar spells is determined..."

I think it would be an improvement if "spells" there were changed to something
like "spells (including potions)".

From Help envenomL
Venomists using an envenomed weapon also 
have chances of dealing additional poison damage
 they may get an 
additional hit (which does poison damage) on a backstab, and may also deal 
an additional hit of poison damage when the poison flag infects a target.

  Harried servants, backs bent double under the weight of dirty dishes
shuffle through the dining hall.  With the constant influx of diners, their
work is seldom finished.  The diners take little notice of the servants as
they attempt to keep some order about the tables, usually taking no more
notice of the poor creatures other than to shove them out of their way... 
The poor shived creature more often than not ending up on the floor under a
mass of broken dishes and leftovers.

>Poker:
>Welcome to the card game poker, which is very different from help poker.

Yep, card games are way different from help files. :P  "This is a version of the
classic game of poker using the collectable cards explained above, rather
than playing the game against others (see 'help poker')."
 
 
It would be nice if the hands and rewards were on the same line- e.g.
  Royal Flush  (50 Quest Points):
to condense the entire list and make it easier to view at a glance.


At the bottom of the help file:
 
>** You do not need to have autoloot toggled on, these will be looted
>   automatically from a corpse as long as you get exp from killing it.
>   You must also have the capacity to carry the card, if you are over
>   weight or item count, the card will not be looted.
 
This should be up under 'The deck:" section since it pertains to the cards,
not just poker.  Also  could use a few changes to the paragraph:
 
** Cards will be looted automatically regardless of autoloot and other
   settings, provided you received experience for the kill that generated
   the card.  Normal inventory limits still apply- you will not loot cards
   if you are    over weight or item capacity limits.
 
 
Also, 'help aardpoker' as an alternative keyword, for those of us that still
remembered it as such, would be nice
