1. Make maps (such as those given to newbies of their home towns) available for purchase in OOC, or in the inns of those towns... to assist Newbie exploration.
2. To balance the loss of snipe, perhaps gun damage could be increased, or alternatively a new high per skill added, called "Sixth Sense", that will allow you to sense when you are being hunted or when there is an invis/hidden item/mob/char in your room. E.g "You sense you are being hunted" or "You sense a hidden presence".
3. Another suggestion i have involves the disproportionate strength of magic stun. Perhaps a new herb could be added that gives a potion/poultic (preferably a potion) of Magic Sink. Or a new item that could do the same thing, high rent or difficult to get, or taking a prominant place (like an ear) or be non-rentable or timed, or any combination of the three etc.
4. This may have been mentioned before, but what about a coupon to each character when they reach level 50? to aid Role-play.
I am not a coder, so i don't know if any of these are practical, but thoug i would put them down anyway, maybe i will get a coupon if they are used..
Malthus... please comment... ;)
