Sparring on permanently

Postby lanyara » Thu Mar 25, 2010 4:24 pm

Ok, I may be a bit dumb ... if I set sparring mode on, what happens as a result of this alone? (I am not talking about stunmode or killmode, only sparring:on )

I have no clue since I dont spar much but my guess is possibly if you wanted to kiss someone in your team type kill by mistake you then maybe you will try knock is block off instead of knocking his socks off.

Hmm but technically if he would be still in killmode and sparring on? Wouldn't that target die?

From what I got told the "sparring" switch only removes any reputation changes resulting from fighting someone within city limits. But it must be active on both sides in order to really work. So being in sparring and attacking everyone would still ruin your reputation, at least I hope it does!

Maeh. Don't you people read help reputation?

Code: Select all

        Every once in a while, two characters will want to
        test their fighting skills against one another, to
        demonstrate a certain technique or to test who is the
        strongest, without it becoming a mortal competition
        and without the reputation of the characters dropping
        because they are fighting someone with a similar belief
        system. This is called sparring.

Hmm. I have another question ...

What if everyone would be in sparring mode turned on all the time?

They could still be in killmode or stunmode of course. Aside from an impact on the reputation, does sparring mode on have any other disadvantage?

If the two competing parties have sparring turned on, they won't affect each others' reputations. That's it. If you're in killmode and sparring with someone, you will still lose favour and or karma from the assault/murder. (I discovered this the hard way.) It only protects your reputation. Nothing else.
