The DM staff has decided that the costs for several DC items are hence forth reduced.

This concerns DC Requests which are purely for roleplay benefit and bring no mechanical benefits. Hence, this does not effect anything that needs time consuming scripting or customizes your gear power wise.

Requests and RP requirement remain.

The changes are the following:

  • Reskins of familiars/companions/summons: 5 DC
  • Custom bio for familiars/companions: 1 DC
  • Simple skinchangers of shape altering without scripting: 5 DC
  • PC Phenotype changes: 5 DC
  • Bottled Companions and Generic summons: 5 DC
  • Visualizers: 5 DC

DCs for Requests performed and delivered before today are not refunded. This only concerns future and still pending requests, which have not been paid for yet.

Wooo!

(Granted sad my last one was 10 DCs but this benefits a lot of people! )

Ugh...

Can I apply for a 5 DC return on the basis of my skinchanger not being 100% complete yet?

Does a reskin still include a custom bio and portrait for the 5DC cost?

Yes.

The other option for 1 DC is simply if you want to have your familiar/companion as a standard one but want to give it a neat little description of the visible characteristics.

Hmn.

Was pondering about coming back, needed just a little "wow" factor I guess.

You're dragging me back to Amia.

Yup.

( Yaaaay! )

I'm not sure what 'Simple skinchangers of shape altering without scripting' or 'PC Phenotype changes' mean in this context, exactly. Which is going to make me feel quite ridiculous in a moment, but I felt I needed to ask; could someone elaborate?

The former is simply a widget that places an NPC skin over you with no mechanic benefit, the latter changes your character's Phenotype (Such as normal, fat, old phenotypes).

Do these changes apply to wings, feet, tails, or cosmetic spell effects that do not involve mechanical changes?

I don't think anything outside that list was changed, though I'm no DM.

This is really good because I'm so tempted to try and request a summon for a custom creature (Caravan) for Xkugab... but 5 DC's... eeeeeegggghh!! I have them, but I must save up for more!

Aren't those falling into scripting category though?

Can this be Posted in the Requests forum? Or at the end of Sune's thread there? It would make it so much more convenient for new DMs/Requesters alike :)

Why are horns and glowing eyes still 10 DCs when the "visualizers" are 5?

Because they are far more special traits and a normal visual of a bit of light or sparkles which you often can even do with special effects. Glowing eyes especially, are very special and rare outside of the monk class. Hence why tails also are still 10 DC and shall remain so.

Anyways... thanks for pointing the request forum out. Instead of moving the topic I will just update the existing one. Was totally forgotten it seems. I shall see to it.

We made a small change to the pricing of DC rebuilds. Minor changes are now free if approved. A request still has to be made for documentation reasons.

A rebuild is considered minor IF the only change is EITHER

only up to 10 skill-points total

OR

only up to 2 ability points total

OR

only one feat.

Please understand that this is an announcement, not a discussion.

We have to draw a line somewhere and it was decided this is it.

The Price of the Item Spawner has been reduced if the spawned items are of pure RP purpose.

Examples for RP items:

-Holdables or Equippables with no powers that need to be mythalled entirely by yourself and just have a custom name/bio.
-Inventory items which have no power and only a custom name/bio.
-Inventory items which have a very minor "on use power" simply so you can use them up (custom food, drinks, salves etc.) and a custom name/bio. Those minor powers must be of no true power benefit with a short duration.

The new price for these RP item spawners now is:

1 Base DC and then 1 DC per spawnable item.

The old price still accounts for spawned items which give the character a benefit. For example items that have an 1x use Endurance (15) or spawn weapon poisons etc.

VFX horns have been reduced from 10 DC to 5 DC. Mostly because horns are a feature any character (who has reason to have horns) can already get them via head selection and merely then is limited to a few heads so we decided they should not be quite as expensive as the more special, not on creation selectable horns and tails.

We also decided the VFX helmets and masks are reduced to 1 DC.

Any other VFX or VFX combi (the spawner can hold up to 3 VFX at once) remain the same.

PLC prices are reduced from 1 DC per PLC to:

1-3 PLC = 1 DC
4-7 PLC = 2 DC
8-10 PLC = 3 DC

This only counts so long as the PLC are on one PLC Spawner.

Examples:
A requests 1 PLC tent on a widget and one wagon on another widget. That is still 2 DC. Aka 1 DC + 1 DC.

A requests a PLC tent on one widget and on another widget A requests a Table + a Chair. That would also be 2 DC. Also 1 DC + 1 DC.

A requests a PLC tent on one widget and on another widget a merchant stall + a pottet plant + 2 bolts of cloth + an armor stand. That would be 3 DC. 1 DC (for the single spawner) and 2 DC (for the spawner with 5 PLC)
