Crid needs some scales and a DM present to help with Concentration bug

Post by daveyeisley on Wed Nov 06, 2013 7:52 pm

The Spell Opportunist feat will be an Excellent replacement for his dinky Expertise feat (A True Archmage does not Melee, Melee is for ruffians who cannot master the Clever Craft Razz)

To do this, Crid will need at least one set of relevel scales, and I am betting I will miss something on my first try (his build is a teensy bit complex), so probably a second set too.

Once the relevel is all squared away and he gets his feat, I will need help fixing the issue he has with every relevel he does, because of that stupid bug from years ago with the 'Advanced Concentration Techniques' book that makes his concentration go into the negatives.... I will need a DM to give him a big INT bump for one level so he can take the extra skill points and use them to correct the defecit.

Whenever somebody has time, I will see about trying to be online this weekend.

Crid's apprentice Ranara took the Spell Opportunist feat, still haven't explored it very much yet tho.  [BTW, she reached Level 40 last week! cheers]

Not any character, no.

The bug occurred a loooong time ago when The Amethyst Dragon first implemented letoscript edits for various items and such... He updated the advanced concentration tome along with all the attribute tomes, etc... And for a very short period before the bug was discovered, reported, and subsequently squished, characters with very high concentration skill who used the concentration tome got a bad Leto edit... And it made the skill wonky so that on relevel the character's concentration skill would go into the negatives and they would have to spend a ton of skill points just to get a positive score again.

I was able to develop a DM workaround by using DM console commands to temporarily increase the character's intelligence before a single level up in order to grant enough extra skill points to balance out the negative... Unfortunately, this is not a permanent fix and needs to be repeated at each relevel.

Now that I'm back in Aenea after a loooong time away, a few of my A-Teamers would like some scales too in order to grab the new feats/spells available Smile (offhand, Alice, Aerith, Alastair, Audrey, and Abigail... gotta go through to see who else would likely take the opportunist/dashing and daring feats) Not sure if Aerith would need the DM assist for concentration bug fix or not

MJ, I'm assuming you've been sorted? If not, let me know when you would like to meet up and I'll help out.

I may have one or two A-teamers who need some assistance, but not sure when I'll have time for aenea any time soon.  Between firefighter training, work, and medical issues, I been short on free time lately :/
