It would be impossible to actually 'dead end' on XP. Learn more zones.

If there were a DF style port of ArcticMUD, I don't think I'd ever see the light of day again.

I haven’t dug in to df for years but I’m pretty sure editing and adding races or monsters is very doable. You could add draconian, replace goblins with kenders... etc.

xp loss on death seems to be tied to the xp required to level.  after a few reincarnations and enough unlucky deaths, the kill history might get to the point where a player would not be able to reliably gain xp.

Isn’t the kill list finite?  Someone who has reincarnated multiple times is probably going to be playing it safe while leveling and know enough zones, or be in a clan with people who know enough, that they won’t hit a dead end.

Plus i don’t think you can max out on quest xp, or did that change in recent years?


E: to be clear, I’m also ok with no xp penalty when reincarting because that’s going to be hell for neutrals unless it’s less than what good and evil aligns get.

I think Kam explained it well. And I'm on board. Is this a next wipe type thing?

xp loss on death is confusing.  If i die at 1x on two characters (woops!) at the same time, they often require different amounts of XP to get to 1x again.

Mysterious!

A theoretical example of progression here:

 - You are level 30, 1X and rank 15 (out of 50).
   - You reincarnate, you are now level 1 and rank 17 (out of 52).
   - You reach level 30 and 1X again, say you're rank 24 (out of 52) now.
     - You reincarnate the second time, you are now level 1 and rank 26 (out of 54).
     - You reach level 30 and 1X again, say you're rank 34 (out of 54) now.
       - You reincarnate the third time, you are now level 1 and rank 36 (out of 56).
       - You reach level 30 and 1X again, say you're rank 42 (out of 56).
         - You reincarnate the fourth time, you are now level 1 and rank 44 (out of 58).
         - You reach level 30 and 1X again, say you're rank 50 (out of 58).
            - You reincarnate the fifth time, you are now level 1 and rank 52 (out of 60).
            - You reach level 30 and 1X again, say you're rank 56 (out of 60).
               - You reincarnate the sixth time, you are now level 1 and rank 58 (out of 62).
               - You can continue to level 30/1X/rank 62.

By now you've gained +12 points to your base stats (in increments of 2).
You have been able to change races six times.
You have +120 movement points.
You have +90/60/30 hitpoints class depending.
You have a permanent -6 saving spell bonus.
Each time you've reincarnated all your spell failures have been removed (this also happens each level and each rank gained, remember).
Each time your kill history (this is how you "max" on mobs) is reset.


The ranks you gain do not count toward the max, effectively raising the max rank by 2 each time you reincarnate.
The ranks you gain from reincarnation do not affect the amount of rankxp it takes to gain a new rank.
- This is maybe a little convoluted, but: if you're rank 20 and reincarnate you're now rank 22 but the rankxp required to reach rank 23 is the same as it would have been to reach rank 21 before you reincarnated.
You will lose any progress toward your next rank when you reincarnate. So if you are rank 10 and 54% to rank 11, when you reincarnate you'll be rank 12 and 0% to rank 13.

There is no 'problem' that the reincarnation feature is intended to solve.

Reincarnation is simply a new facet that we are adding to the game.
It is optional and may not be for everyone, we understand that and are fine with it.

Those who want the most powerful character will have to delay legendary and let those who legendary early get ahead of them.  Those who go for an early lead will be far behind those who reincarnate 6x when the reincarnaters finally legend.

I'd like to see someone catching up to a 45+ rank wipe legendary character if you reincarnate 6x. Maybe Adepali can try this and see how much fun it is after 9 months being still rank 1.

It's the bought ranks that are to be reset, as I understand it, not character back to rank 1
