The fishshape pretty much makes one susceptible to all types of
attacks. But, what does this really mean? Someone told me once
that this meant you take 66% more damage. This is not true. If
that is how it is supposed to work it is broken. If it is not how,
then please explain exactly (yes, use numbers) it does work. If its
not something you want to put on a board send me a tell because I
really want to know how this works.
Question: How does a 385 hitpoint 100dex 100mind char tanke down
a 100str/dex fighter with more hitpoints WHILE wearing a fishshape?
Barring all the worse for wears, I still got many a round in and
it sure didnt seem to me that I was hitting any harder at all.
Please explain coders/builders/Rufus?

resistance = 33% less, immune = 66% less
immune & resist = no damage at all from that attack type
Suscept is 50% more damage
Trust me, it works (I have some new mobs in my area that do a fixed
amount of damage and they happen to be susceptible to their own
attack type, when I fight one against one exactly like it, they
demolish instead of massacre).

Hmm sounds good, but since the 50% comes after parrying, blocking and dodg
I was thinking the fishshape should be also a +50 or so to AC. That would
also make it fairer imo.

Thats +50 in the bad sense.

Umm its got no armor and no stats, so you miss out on a very good
slot for both of those things. Plus the fishshape sets you to no legs
and if I read the last code change right, that means if you fall
down in a fight you can't get up again any more. Thats in addition
to all those susceptibilities. While you might think this list is
not long enough, I would say you should think about adjusting your
tactics to take advantage of them. And if you come back and say 'all
I can do is headbutt/bash + rage' then I am just going to laugh at

Fishshapes are pretty stupid, although make them so you cant
be stunned or a spell cast on you and they would be um, different,
anyway. Not sure if they would be more stupid or less, everyone
could wear them then anyway. The sheer stupidity of them makes
it hard to judge. And Davien I really kinda doubt, they make it
so you cant stand, cuz then you couldnt walk around or anything.
Hey that might work, heh, make em so you have to fly to get around
or be in water, and throw in -50 mind also.

Actually, I rather like the idea of having water walk added to the
fishshape, while making the wearer unable to move in a land-based room
Would make the fishshape still useable in the quest it's needed for while
adding an interesting twist to it.

The point of the fish shape is mainly the sustained breath it gives.
Water walk does not permit entering underwater rooms, otherwise, it's
a good idea.
