Okay I knoweth this hath been spoken of alot. But in a recent
PK or mine, vs Willo, I bash'd at least 5 times, ALL of these
bashes twere tumble'd. One tumble fine, two he wast lucky, three
very lucky, but 5, should that naught be impossible? I thinketh
there should be a law against it! I knoweth Tumble ist purely
random and all that, but why doth he tumble so with 100 dex,
when I haveth the same dex and ist lucky to tumble once per month.
Perhaps hometowns... Oh well just something that made he win,
naught that mine landing one bash twould have change'd that though,
two land'd perhaps...

Isnt this an OOC board? Is there really any need for the
IC dialect/accent? It just makes it harder to read and
understand the message....and most skills depend on
more than just one stat, which is most likely the case
in this situation.

Doth thou mock I?
For any that knoweth I, then they shalt know that I do
NAUGHT break character. If thou hath a problem with this,
then tis thou's problem naught mine, for I shalt speaketh
how I wisheth.

I took a look at the code, short story is that you were just
really unlucky, Jen.

The Discussion board is by its very nature considered to be OOC.
If you don't want to be heard or taken seriously, though, your call.

The moment you send a message to the cute Beatle to transfer you to
another dimension where ordinary rules do not apply, you are stepping
out of character, whether you choose to or nay. And the moment you begin
to write on this board about skills and statistics and other in-game
things your character should know nothing about, the pretense of remaining
in character becomes absurd. Unless of course, she has the existential
philosophy that life is but a game.

1) jen, you can speaketh anyway you want :)
2) as for tumble, please review the code because from my experiences
the chances of tumbles a 'bash' are far, far greather than tumbling
a headbutt or stun spell, and complicating this issue is the fact that
when a bash is tumbled you are skill-lagged 3 fight rounds not 2

I never stated that the chance to tumble a magic spell was
the same as that of tumbling a physical attack.
And again, I stated that I checked the code and what happened
was a run of bad luck. Those things happen for and against
you, truly random things do "clump".

yes but what about the odds of headbutt vs. bash?
