    I will meet with the powers that be and rethink this a little. Maybe we can offer some alternate titles, which is really all it is.
    That would really be nice. I think an entity having a list of possible 'titles' to choose from upon joining a cult or sect is a good way to go. Some circles will obviously not use some of them - Demon Lord/Lady for AM, maybe even Elemental Lord/Lady - but that is fine. A slew of options they could pick from would be cool - Spirit, Incarnation, Angel, Elemental, Demon, Manifestation, Aspect, etc. This lets the cults that really do like the current titles retain them, while the odd cults that don't mesh well with the current titles will also have what they want.

    In response to @Juran, he's right. None of these titles are bad in any way - really, had we been told this was what happens, maybe we'd have planned a little better about our themes.

    I'm excited for my Demon Lord/Lady.

    We will probably never hit 100% belief, so it's something of an irrelevant discussion.

    There's one line of content in there that's important at all, and it's buried in 3 pages of offering spam, which is irritating as hell. Could we please get a seperate belief log?

    Or just recreate the listofferings/listofferings summary commands from achaea and make it an investable power in cults/sects
  • LalitanaLalitana Member Posts: 208 ✭✭✭
    I'd rather just have the offering spam moved to a separate log (and viewed with an investable sect power), with the main log reserved for legitimate sect operational information.

    I'd also like positions to show up properly in SECTWHO :(

  • SarriusSarrius Member Posts: 1,319 ✭✭✭✭
    Can we possibly see some reform of the 'cult promote/demote' system? It is just 'sectfavour'. Give the sect leader unlimited promotes/demotes or something, because I'm trying to set up an actual structure here.

    I will ask Garryn about cleaning up the logs and making structure a bit easier for sects.

  • LalitanaLalitana Member Posts: 208 ✭✭✭
    Another sect oddity: The Sect Ranknames privilege lets anyone with this position rename the ranks and can be invested - but apparently no one but the sect leader can see what privileges are assigned to each rank (I believe this is the SECT RANKPRIVS command).

    Does building a temple room require the additional gold investment for room title/description/environment? The system appears to be based on the housing system, which requires 10k outlays for these necessities above and beyond the room creation cost.

    It does. :(
    ‘Least I won’t have to carry it no more. You see how bloody heavy it is?’

    ‘Every sword’s a weight to carry. Men don’t see that when they pick ’em up. But they get heavier with time.”
  • GarrynGarryn Member, Administrator Posts: 527 admin
    The temple isn't really meant to be something that gets built overnight, hence the costs.

    That should probably be noted in the file, then - because it adds so much in the way of costs per room even before you get beyond the bare necessities.

    Which, frankly, since people already had to cough up 1M for the cult, 100% belief to get the sect, started from 0% belief all over again, and now need to cough up 100k, comms, and 25% belief per room, strikes me as a bit...much.


  • DelrayneDelrayne Member Posts: 457 ✭✭✭
    I'm inclined to agree, though like @Garryn said. They weren't meant to be built overnight...but still, add in the ritual research and all that jazz, it'll still take quite awhile to build even if the requirements are less stringent.

  • LalitanaLalitana Member Posts: 208 ✭✭✭
    Sect members - since there are now ranks and all, I think it would make sense for this to be more like GMEMBERS, or better yet an extension of SECTWHO, to list members and their ranks/positions.

    Here's the table I generate client-side. A command that did something like this would be snazzy.

    The alertness ritual in favours seems really out of place.
