Here you go (http://www.gearthhacks.com/gemmo/leaderboard.php)

Now, who can be the best?

SpiderX22 has a big lead in crystals, though he had a head start as one of the earliest beta testers.
GEHgadget has the most experience points, though he hasn't captured a crystal yet. Those level ones should be easy to beat now that he's a level 9 player.

Fun stuff.

Ruskets attacks Crime Lord with Wooden Sword for 10 points. Crime Lord was killed. Ruskets has defeated the boss of Denver and captured that crystal! Level Up! Ruskets is now a level 5 player.

I'm now 8th on the leader board by crystals, but I doubt I'll stay there for long. Too many higher level players with fewer crystals.

In GE, under character it says:
HP: 70/70
Crystals: 15

On the leaderboard, it says I have 14 crystals.

I checked with the cities, and I only have 14 crystals. So why is it displaying that I have 15?

Two reasons that it doesn't:

1 - In case we add and pvp stuff, I thought that might want to stay hidden.
2 - It doesn't necessarily show how good/bad you are. A smart player spends money, but spends it wisely.

However, I can easily add it in there.

Interesting. I'll check it out.

I'm a fantasy roleplayer since years, i often did the "master" job in our RPG group. And here comes the criticism: Health- (Mana-, Life-) potions are an inherent part of those games. Every character can carry some of them.

But: Do you really have a chance to use them mid-battle ?

"Oh. sorry, Mr. Boss Monster, please one minute, i have to drink my potion to kill you!"

Wow, in mid-fight situations ... this will not end well. Maybe the ampullae are on your side, in a belt -or whatevar- take them out - open them- drink - and wait till (or if) it works. That's not real.

You can do it if a party of adventurers come to the scene, and one replaces another in the battle. Maybe.

Battling on a chief monster without a silver sword? Danm, you guys are hardcore! I, for myself, have a lil' dream: The first who can purchase a Diamond Sword.

Good luck. mates!

I totally see what your agreeing and agree. It's as if every battle you're running away from the enemy, chug this instantaneously-healing potion, then run back into battle. However, completely removing potions from use in battle would mean all the hapless beginners who attack someone with low hps and then die because they heal..they'll quit the game thinking it's dumb.

What I see as a solution is this: when you drink a potion, it acts as your attack phase, meaning that although you may heal some, the enemy still hits you. This is a bit more realistic...while your drinking your potion....the enemy doesnt sit back and watch...it attacks you. This might be hard to implement (from a programming/making viewpoint...but seems a vital part of the game).

I don't quite understand what you're saying...can you reword this? Are you trying to say that a silver sword is a pretty weak weapon to use against a boss? If so, I agree with you again...i'd rather be using like a lance (or a bazooka).

For Mickey...I suggest you either add more weapons or change the types of weapons around. Maybe add "bow & arrows" or "lance" or something big that can realistically take down a boss. Cause really, I don't see a man with a silver sword taking down a Dragon or even a Giant Squid.

Nope. The silver sword is ok as it is. I just tried to say that a wooden or steel sword is f***ing weak. But when i look at the board and see that there are players under level 10 (level to purchase the silver sword) i wonder how much of that delicious healing potions they needed to slay teh boss. ;)

Ohh..yea..about that. =P
At one point, (of course, just to test the game ;) ), I had like 100 healing potions. Was pretty spiffy. Except the level 4 bosses now take me out with 1 shot. :(

Yes, that's the problem. You need to get over 100HP's to battle the level 4's and I am not sure when that happens. I'm at level 13 and "only" have 94 HP's available.

Fritriac
03-09-2008, 12:32 AM
I'm with 150 hp, and i've no good feeling to match a lvl3 boss (without drinking lots and lots od those delicious drinks). C'mon, no one did this shotload of Crystals whithout gallons of potions.

Meh.

As i said in a previous post: I'm a FRPG player - and game master for years -
and the only thing i can say is that real balance in such a game is difficult to obtain.

Gallons of the stuff, Lucky I found a "Camelback of slurping" off the coast of Taipai when I was nowt but a wee level three!

Should I start adding higher levels (5+), or stick with 1-4?

How about adding 'Poison Poitions' that you add to your sword to make it hit harder, or do DOT (damage over time)?

No offence but my elf would struggle to lift a Gold sword, he has enough trouble with a Steel one (Just glad its not Stainless Steel :) )

Good idea. Done! I did a few other things while I was in there:

- Expanded the list to the top 25 instead of just the top 10.
- Numbered the list.
- Linked each username to their profile.
- Added their race, as suggested. Not many mages, huh?

I think that is pretty easy to explain. With how the game is currently structured Mage come at a huge disadvantage while the game is truly build for Warriors. Don't get me wrong I love and enjoy being an Elf but the magic just don't reach the level of a Warrior. You have to constantly buy more magic as it is used while a Warrior you buy your weapon and your done. All you have to do to play is buy health.

Well done! One more question: How many players are actual registered/active (i think there are some who registered just to take a look and then never played) ;)

- Added their race, as suggested. Not many mages, huh?
No surprise for me. I'm, personally, starting all my games as a warrior (P&P RPGs, computer RPGs (single or MMO)), it's (in the majority of cases) the safer and most simple way to start in this kind of games.

Oh, by the way ...

640 registered, not sure how many are active. I'll see if I can figure that out.
