Playing a Fae Shadowchild.

If I venture outside during the day, every so often fire swirls around me, but no actual damage occurs.

Is this a bug, or a feature of my low level?

I have all the required haks (obviously), but none of the optional ones.

I do not think it's a bug as I experienced the same back when my two shadowchild characters were created; lasting the first couple of levels.
That is, if I recall correctly. Smile

Also, Welcome to Aenea! sunny

Same with my shadowchild when she was at low levels.  Assumed that it was because at low hitpoints, just one exposure to sun could kill you, like just running between buildings, before a newbie can discover the various ways and methods to deal with it.

Welcome to Aenea! cheers

The shadowchild sunlight burning is worked out as 5% of Max HP per round... so if I calculated that correctly you need at least a 20HP Max+ to get at least 1HP damage (and will also mean that you can last approx 19 rounds in sunlight before dying~ which goes by pretty fast)..

The good/evil thing with sunlight damage is it's a %of Max, so regardless how much HP/Con you have, you will always burn up at the same rate/ratio.

Bonuses to the system come in the form of "shady spots" such as the path from the Sleeping Dragon Inn (default start location) to the Asis Shrine (behind on the slopes of the hill- where you respawn after death)...

-Also if the weather is overcast/raining you are protected..
-Under the effects of a Darkness spell (or effect)...
-Slightly mitigated by holding a "Sunblock" Umbrella (~ actual name escapes me, but it is NOT a standard umbrella)
-Wearing a Cloak of Shadows (NOT a Shadowcloak, check the description, you'll know the one when you find one!)....  

I would also suggest typing ;;option sunshelter into the chatbar, to switch on this very useful function... this will display a purple? fire/smoke visual at the entrances to caves/buildings/shaded areas to you and you alone (ie your party members don't see what you see)... which can really help you out whilst exploring Aenea for the first time !

The sun rises between 0600 and 0700 and sets between 1800 and 1900... hover your mouse over the compass for a quick update on the time, or type ;;info time into the chatbar to get a full rundown of the time,date, etc

Hope those quick pointers help you out and ....

Welcome to Aenea, I really hope you enjoy life as a fellow shadowchild Smile

I know that theoretically it's by percentage of HP, but I recall dying several times from the sun at low levels, and it seemed to take my HP down a whole lot faster than a percentage of my HP at the time.  Maybe the algorithm rounds up to the nearest integer or something...

Darkness is unfortunately borked atm, not providing sun protection (at last I checked about a week or so ago) , but I'm hoping The Amethyst Dragon will fix that soon. (bug thread)

The sunblocking umbrella does an awesome job, with just a little of regeneration from an item, I can stand in the sun all day when holding it.  To me, it seems to give more protection than it promised.
