Major/minor Shield Tweaks., posted on Fri Jan 29 21:27:52 2021
Posted by: Aristophanes
Category: Guilds
So, there have been a couple of changes to faith shields. Most of these are cosmetic, one is functional.

The functional change is the major shield now counts as "outer" armour. This means it protects you before your clothes and other worn things and these will therefore get less damaged than before.

The most important of the cosmetic changes is that there is now a "high level" major shield message. Gapp's had one for a while (the "cloth of gold" message you may have seen) but now every other p...

I have tweaked the alignment values for nobleman groups in Bes Pelargic to be less extreme.

You may therefore find maintaining your alignment when fighting these specific NPCs easier :)

You can now change your character's gender by visiting research witch Hannah Morgenstern in Pekan Ford and asking her about potions.

NB: witches cannot take advantage of this, for lore reasons.
