Chronicles of Krynn MUD


This month’s update brings us a new prestige class and a new quest type.

The Dragonrider prestige class offers a personal dragon mount and a number of abilities that go with it. The dragonrider can choose between becoming a champion, scion or kin to their dragon mount, with each specialization offering different benefits. As they grow in ability, they are able to tap into their dragon’s innate magical presence, offering new abilities that grow in power.

Dialogue quests are quests that can be completed by using a ‘speech skill’, such as diplomacy, intimidate and bluff. Such quests offer a greater reward when completed using a dialogue skill. If the skill check fails, the quest will offer an alternate way of completing, generally with reduced awards. This will assist in current and future story quests, in allowing quests to be completed peacefully, and without the need for breaking immersion by having players ‘OOC-kill’ their targets when the intent in the story is to speak with them.
