TOPIC: Soulforged Tokens

Soulforged Tokens 4 years 2 months ago #37

Personally, I loved the idea firlz came up with: when someone with an artifact passes, if their heirs are willing, donate the token back to Jeff and create a quest out of it, where either the artifact can become soul forged to someone new or it can in story somehow lead to the creation of a new artifact. Gives a really cool in-story memorium for a beloved member of the community, and ensures the ability to keep a fixed number of artifacts in game and being used.

I have the exact opposite opinion, I think it's good that the Artifacts are Soul-Bound and will eventually phase out of the game, and I hope that no more ever replace them. I think they were a mistake in the first place. As originally envisioned they were OK as they were maybe Relic level power (Jeff described them originally as a power level of a +3 weapon with a drawback), but they grew to be FAR more than that.

I respect and like your imagination, but!!...

Soulbound means Soul Bound.

If I had an Artifact and I died I'd want that Token buried with me if no one in my family (wife, kids) wanted it.

I would actually put it in my Will that my Soulbound Token would be willed to whatever family member wanted it and would *use* it. Then Jeff would "decree" my Token is now Soulbound to whomever I decided in my Will.

I don't think Soulbound means that a family member could use it. Like you said, Soulbound means Soul Bound, it's only ever usable by that one person.

Someone else with the same name has a different soul? Or, along the same lines, the person it is soul bound to still has the same soul even if their name changes (marriage, etc)?

They say that the best weapon is the one you never have to use. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon you only have to use once! Oh - and if you really need to think about whether you're going to use the fireball or the + umpty staff of butt-whooping - you're likely to find yourself full of arrows, or fangs, or nasty knives & swords and such. Don't think - just shoot!

Based on TDs age requirement, they would have to wait 14 years. :evil:
D&D teaches all the important lessons in life - the low blow, the cheap shot, the back stab, the double cross. - Jerry Marsischky

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir

I meant that if I owned one and I died I would bequeath it to a family member as if I sold my Soul to them so they could use it. I also said it would have to be approved by Jeff to be usable that way.

Humm, of course the sale of a soul would have to be completed before death to have a chance of being upheld. Welizkzous of the 9th level v. Trump 666 Lu Rev 4th 867 (2014)(Attempted sale of Father's soul invaild on grounds individual predeceased contract)> :evil:
