Gameplay questions / Problems with rituals
« on: April 11, 2020, 11:22:22 AM »
I am having problems with the whole F4 thing, this is not a game problem but a problem with my philosophy of life.

My view is you are born, you stuggle in various ways to live then you die, no afterlife, rebirth, gods or such like. I have difficulty with suspension of disbelief in a game that is supposed to emulate life. I can cope with magic and supernatural beasts in fantasy games as they are not like life at all. I can also accept that so called 'primitive' races would invent explanations of a spiritual nature to explain things the do not understand, such rituals etc. may appear to work to them but would of course not do anything. At best they may make the person better at a task because they think some spirit is helping them though in fact any benefit is their better concentration or just luck.

I have forced myself to try playing using the rituals I know and have played the same character without using rituals at all, there seems to be very little difference, at least in 6 months of playing. The main difference is I feel better about my character when I play without using rituals, especially with some of the illogical ones.

My question is basically, is it possible to play long term with using rituals? Or does it get more complicated with years of playing while ignoring the F4 button?

General Discussion / wiki and email

It is not clear who the administrator of the wiki is, but I have come across a problem that might need administrator access.

In creating an account there is an option to add an email address to enable things like notifications. In order to get email actions enabled you need to reply to a setup mail but no mail is ever sent. I have tried several email address' just in case the system does not like some domain names. Could whoever has privileges look into this?

The ctd does not seem to be related to any particular action I perform. Using Arch linux.
