First, I’d like to say thank you to Ranger Sheck for such a fun game. It certainly is more compelling than work :D
Over the last week or so, I’ve had some trouble with advancing active skills. Passive skills have gone up, but I haven’t noticed any increases in active skills, even with hunting ventures where the enemy mops up the forest floor with my party. Does skill progression just slow down after around 40 active points?
(It doesn’t help that I didn’t notice the skill decrease when fleeing a tough battle, either.)
Wow – I really screwed up! I’m so sorry – I tweaked the check that compares your level to your target’s level to see if you’re able to notch your skills, and I botched it! I was trying to make it easier for lowbies and I made it harder for everyone above skill level 20…sigh
Ok, it’s fixed now. Also, I should point out that skill levels no longer decrease when you flee a battle. Instead, upon fleeing you lose some gold. (does it say they will decrease somewhere? let me know and I’ll correct it….)
Thank you so much for the speedy fix! The bit about decreasing skill levels is in an old announcement, not in the later September one. Was just guessing, since some of the fleeing characters lost a few skill points after fleeing recently. [shrugs]
The losing gold bit works just fine. This is quite a game you’ve put together!
