From Sincra:
===============================
Resources, The Desert Flower:
- Now respawns as per normal flowers.

As this has been made a non-once per restart resource the rare FOIG mechanic related to the flower has been stripped of a very beneficial effect.

Disguise and Races:
- Shadovar can now disguise as Humans.

From Kalopsia
==============
SPELLBOUND WANDS:
Coveted by spellcasters across Faerûn, spellbound wands bear potent dweomers that enable them to store the magic of harmful spells. Skilled wielders can harness and even amplify these powers; meanwhile, those familiar with their imbued arcana are able to recharge them by sacrificing their own energy.
  • Acquiring a Spellbound Wand:
    • Spellbound Wands are equippable items that can be enchanted at a Dweomercraft Basin.
    • They can be crafted in three tiers with increasingly expensive material requirements. This tier determines the maximum innate level a wand can contain (see below).
    • Craft recipes:
      • Lesser Spellbound Wand (Tier 1)
        Carpentry (DC: 10 - CP: 24)
        • Ingot (Silver) x1
        • Hardwood x1
        • Topaz x1
        • Alchemic Catalyst (Lesser) x1
      • Greater Spellbound Wand (Tier 2)
        Carpentry (DC: 25 - CP: 60)
        • Ingot (Mithril) x1
        • Rare Hardwood x1
        • Ruby x1
        • Alchemic Catalyst (Standard) x1
      • Masterly Spellbound Wand (Tier 3)
        Carpentry (DC: 40 - CP: 96)
        • Ingot (Adamantine) x1
        • Rare Hardwood x1
        • Star Sapphire x1
        • Alchemic Catalyst (Greater) x1
  • Empowering a blank Spellbound Wand:
    • Spellbound Wands can contain harmful spells with a maximum innate level depending on their tier (cantrips excluded):
      • Tier 1 (Lesser Spellbound Wand): Innate level 1
      • Tier 2 (Greater Spellbound Wand): Innate level 2
      • Tier 3 (Masterly Spellbound Wand): Innate level 3
    • Wands are empowered by targeting them with the desired spell. The reagent cost to do so is 2500gp per innate level. The Craft Wand feat is NOT required.
      • Only harmful spells can empower spellbound wands. Further, a number of these spells are disabled for balance reasons: Balagarn's Iron Horn, Evard's Black Tentacles, Faerie Fire, Negative Energy Burst, Wall of Fire & Ice
    • Once empowered, the wand attunes to the caster class used to empower it:
      • It becomes "Only Usable By" this class. The UMD DC to bypass this requirement is 15 per innate level.
      • It gains a character level requirement of 5 per innate level.
      • The chosen class and spell cannot be changed.
  • Activating a Spellbound Wand:
    • Spellbound wands can only be activated while equipped. Unlike regular wands, the contained spell is then available via the the "Special Abilities" radial menu (like the GSF infispells available to Wizards and Sorcerers). This means hasted characters can activate the wand twice per round.
    • Activating this "Special Ability" decreases the wand's remaining charges by 1.
      • If no charges remain, the spell fails, but the wand doesn't get destroyed.
    • Arcane Spell Failure is a factor for wands empowered by Arcane Caster Classes.
    • The caster level of spellbound wands is as follows:
      • Characters of the same class as the wand's attuned class are able to use their related caster level for the spell.
      • Otherwise (or if it is higher), the caster level is the wielder's Character Level, divided by 2.
        Exceeding a wand's UMD requirement increases this CL by +1 for every 5 ranks above its required UMD score.
        Loremaster levels increase this caster level as they normally would. Additionally, they grant the usual chance to preserve charges.
      • The calculated caster level is displayed when examining the wand.
  • Recharging a Spellbound Wand:
    • Spellbound wands can be recharged by casting any level 1 or higher spell on them. Scrolls and items do not count.
    • The replenished charges equal the spell's level in the class spellbook used to recharge the wand (i.e., a Spellsword's Time Stop, which is a level 8 spell for the class, would restore 8 charges)
    • The maximum spell charges a wand can contain are 30.

A range of 62 new upper arm options have been added. Fashion increases.
Unfortunately that means there are way too many to show off feasibly in a preview. Enjoy!

From Sincra:
===================================
Sequencers & Warlock Feat (Deceive Item):
- Now adds 2 to the Innate level check for all classes.
- This means a 25/5 Hexblade/Warlock would be technically recognised as capable of Innate level 6 spells in a Sequencer, resulting in a caster level duration instead of 10 CL.

Runic Property & Description:
- Now has a brighter purple colour.
- Now shows the rune that was used in the description. ("This object has been infused with a [Script type] rune...")

Subdual & Gold:
- Subdued people now drop all gold in a radius around themselves.

Re: Arelith Updates!

Post by Sincra » Mon Nov 21, 2022 11:08 pm

From The Team:
=======================
Bard Balance Adjustments:
Silence:
* The Song Source (Bard):
- * Entering the Silence aura removes the song from all affected by that Bards' song, including the Bard.
- * Exiting the Silence re-applies the song for free, as if newly cast.

* Song Effected individuals:
- * Entering the Silence drops the song effect from themself.
- * Exiting the Silence re-applies the song only if they are within a relevant radius around the original Bard they lost the song effect from.

--Feat Changes--
Unremitting Cadence:
* Split into two, Unremitting Cadence 1 and Unremitting Cadence 2.
* Unremitting Cadence I applies to Innate spells 1 through 3.
* Unremitting Cadence II applies to Innate spells 4 through 6.
* Unremitting Cadence II requires Unremitting Cadence I.

Song of the Heart now requires:
* Epic Reputation
* Unremitting Cadence 2

--Song Changes--
Base song:
* Base song now gives 1 skill per 6 levels, was 1 per 3.

--Specific Songs:
Song of the Hunter or Ranger's Round:
* Now gives Animal Empathy at Song Level / 4.

All Specific songs:
* Skills they provide are now capped by the targets hard rank investments.
* This is calculated as a % investment of your max possible hard ranks for any given level and your hard ranks.
* Functionally, this means if the person that hears the song is level 30 and has 5 Animal Empathy hard ranks invested, the Ranger's Round would at best give 1 more Animal Empathy, totalling 6 from a level 30 Song.
* Mathematically this is as follows:
Bonus To Skills = Song Skill Bonus * (Hard Skill Ranks / (PC Level + 3))
If Bonus To Skills > Hard Skill Ranks, instead use Hard Skill Ranks.

Masking Melody:
* No longer protects from Scry.

Noisy Songs:
* If a song is noisy (it applies to others) then it will negate bonuses to listen and move silently for the Bard.
* This means only Selfish Solo provides any Listen or Move Silently to the Bard.

Reasoning for change:
Bard had become a class that was capable of out competing almost all other support built classes, in almost every scenario, while then also retaining the capacity to be incredibly hard to defeat.
The above changes are designed address this.

All Bards with Unremitting Cadence will be re-leveled, any other Bard wising to relevel can make use of the -relevel command.

From Amnesy & Kalopsia
============================

Fixes to what classes can select new epic spells (PMs should be able to select Vampiric Feast at lvl 15).

Druids who selected Mummy Dust or Vampiric Feast will be releveled.

Invokers who will in the future pick up multiclass with Vigilante (Path of Vigilance) will not stack Dodge AC from Invoker features (i.e. Path of Air 3 dodge AC). Same approach as with Monk.

Evil Blight AOE sphere origin should now be centred on the spell target, not defaulting to the caster.

==========================
Stores and Desired Stacks:
I have rolled out an experimental feature that will auto-populate NPC Stores with stacks of items that people have commonly requested be added in larger amounts.
These are as follows:
- Writing Paper (1,5,10)
- Water Bottles (1,5,10)
- Brew Potion Bottles (1,10)
- Blank Scrolls (1,5,10)
- Blank Wands (1,5,10)

As this is experimental it may not work in all locations, please make a bug report if you notice a store that does NOT create any of the listed stacks above and make sure to include:
- Area details (using -area command)
- Location in area
- Name of NPC
- Item you expected the variant stack sizes to appear for

Bard and Epic Skill Focus Perform:
- Bonuses should now work as intended.

SPELL BREACHES:
  • Spell Breaches now dispatch a list of all removed spells to affected targets.
AREA SPELLS:
  • Spells with persistent areas of effect are now using an improved DC framework that addresses various inconsistencies regarding DC bonuses & penalties applied by custom classes and paths.
  • Spellbound wands with such spells, as well as the Grease and Web wild surges, should also use the correct DC.
TENTACLE SPELLS:
  • Empowered tentacle spells no longer increase the CL-based amount of tentacles by 50%, only the random amount. The damage per tentacle is unaffected by this change.
  • After entering a tentacle spell area of effect and receiving the initial burst of damage, targets cannot be affected by the same spell again for about 3 seconds. This addresses an issue where the heartbeat script, which fires independently every 6 seconds, occasionally did so very shortly after the initial damage, effectively doubling it.

===============================
Stores and Desired Stacks:
- Changes have been made to make this more reliable on checks across all NPC stores.
- This new method, while far more reliable, requires atleast 1 item bought in a store per server reset to function, for this reason if you aren't seeing the stacks try buying a 1gp item. (Secret economy solution?!)
- As before, please make note of any issues and make a bug report if you notice a store that does NOT create any of the stacks and make sure to include:
- Area details (using -area command)
- Location in area
- Name of NPC
- Item you expected the variant stack sizes to appear for
