just an idea... but you know how snipers can shoot at
double speed if they dont have a weapon wielded?
What if we make a true "mage" that casts at double speed!
But only if not wielding...... If you guys actually like
this idea, then Ill post some more ideas on how this could work.

I would rather be shot at 4 times as fast than hit with
2 firestorms in two consecutive fight rounds. Or gusted then

Carrying that idea out... perhaps it should affect all
sorts. Druids can make/augment faster and better, surgeons can
operate faster and better, and, uh, the other people can do what
they do better and faster, all if unarmed. I think it's nifty in

but if you get bashed.... then you do NOTHING for 2 rounds
while taking 100+hps of damage.. we could make it work
out really cool. When you stand, you get one spell,
and then you might get bashed again!

Theoretically, your chances of success and speed should increase
depending on the items you also hold in your hands
if you really want realism...
having to -hold- the bandages, or a roll
and an herbal bag or some container with herbs
to speed up poulticing
dunno what you could do for mages as held items
unless any +mind item would do..

I hope that double speed thing dosent work for backstab.
getting backstabed twice in a tick is downright nasty.
Think it would be funny if someone could backstab without
weidling a weapon :P

Well.. if you were able to make your hand rigid enough
you -could- run it through someone's back and grab ahold of their spine
and yank it out....
but then.. that'd be pretty devastating...

I like dunes idea
i have a weaponless (at least till level 35+) str cause guy
and umm, if i could do spells quicker as a reward for whatever, 800 mana
and no weapon, i think that would be cool
give a reason to be a good mage, instead of a Vendetta
but dont get nutz, poulticing double speed wif no weapon? no :p
and christopher, stop trying to add reality to legendmud :p
they cannot, and will not co-exist.

That'd be pretty damn hard to balance and what we have now
still needs work in that department. If anything major like
that were to happen I think it's more reasonable to give
2c only advanced weapons training and 3c basic. It could
be adjusted so there isn't as much difference between them
if neccessary, but anyway.. it's been mentioned before so
I won't go on about it, I just don't think mages should
hit as hard as plain fighters when they have so many more
options available to them.
