Thrown Weapon Foot Slot in TEST · on 09/20/2014 10:49 PM CDT 185
Howdy folks. Losing throwing weapons is a HUGE problem for both staff and players. To try and address this I've designed a possible fix.


THIS IS ONLY LIVE IN TEST AND I NEED HELP TESTING IT!! :)

Throwing weapons that miss or fail to lodge will become a part of the throwing players' inventory, lying at their feet. Items at your feet prevent you from moving (though there will always be some forms of movement that sidestep this, it is intended to be restrictive enough to prevent abuse). You can otherwise interact with these items and GET them to retrieve them.

Many players throw an item and disconnect or die... which leads to the item getting lost and needing replacement. My hope is this mechanic reduces those assists and adds to everyone's enjoyment. Please let me know how testing goes!

Lying at your feet is a scimitar.
