Oegyth crystal - Teleportation device !?

Post by Osho »

Oegyth Crystal -- Using it as a teleportation device to quickly reach outside the tavern where player last rested.

Before rejecting the idea due to the term "teleportation" please read the entire post to understand the concept in entirety.

1) Purpose (a) To make use of the oegyth crystals as another option other than forging to develop a weapon. In this case, I recommend an OPTION to use as a utility device!
(b) Helps to cut long distances short by saving time of traveling BACK to tavern. Already an instance in blackwater mountain, which is ALSO used as a one-way teleportation. Oegyth crystal simply extends the same utility to other areas.
(c) Useful for permadeath players who may wish to travel areas with a high risk of death.
(d) Another choice to spend the gold by forging the crystal to a device. It will be a very expensive device!
(e) Why create a device when you can die to reach the last resting point? - Gives permadeath players a helpful tool, unlike other modes of game. There are also times when players want to simply return to tavern without passing through the same long route which is time consuming, thus saving precious experience points accumulated after a lot of grinding for magic items, or farming XP/items for gold.
(f) There's already a skill to save XP from dying then why bother with a device to teleport? - Again, the permadeath players don't have the use of this skill. The device DOES! In other modes of game, the skill can still be useful as the device cannot protect you from death (see below under Conditions). So the skill will continue to remain important for those who wish to save XP from death.

2) Recharging. It requires rest! After being teleported outside the tavern, the player will have to REST to use the device again in future adventures, whenever it wishes to quickly reach the last tavern used as a resting point.

3) Conditions -- (a) Oegyth Crystal CANNOT be used to teleport for an unlimited number of times as it'll be a rechargeable device with only 1 use per recharge.
(b) Players can only have 1 teleportation device. Cannot forge the rest of the crystals and have multiple devices for the same purpose.
(c) NOT the- get-out-of-jail-free-card. In this case, death! The device can only be equipped and used outside the combat and with no monsters around the fixed number of tiles surrounding the player. It's main purpose is to cut time from traveling long distances, and mainly a one-way teleportation only. Not to provide immunity to death.
(d) Source and Destination points are important. The device cannot be used to teleport within the same city with tavern located in the same area as the source of teleport like the blackwater mountain. The network system of teleportation for this device requires the source and destination separated by areas different from one another. So it'll work to teleport from remgard to fallhaven (if the tavern in fallhaven (or crossglen, etc) was your last resting point), but cannot be used to reach the destination point of tavern located in remgard itself.

That's all the details I have to explain the purpose behind the idea of using oegyth crystals as a teleportation device.

About the teleport, the engine has no possibility to do a teleport to a random place (except by death). We can only jump from certain map fields to another. So even if we wanted, it is technically difficult to realize.

But I like the idea to have a different use for the crystals. Not as payment for some teleport device. But maybe e.g. as payment for 1 jump between 2 specific locations? Of course such a jump should fit into the story.

Oh.

That's unfortunate.

I will come up with a different idea then. Oegyth crystals should be actually used as a utility device that grants player some special powers, like offering limited or timed (based on turns) protection against damage, or strong actor conditions.

I am very much in favor of new uses for Oegyth crystals. The difficulty is finding ones that fit the game :?
