I am running into some serious problems over on the RP board with one of the creatures created.  Is there anyway that the creature could be put on the no-play list since it has so many openings and unclarified points that have caused the delightful creature to be used in a God like way?

Please PM me if you need more detailed reasons.

Thanks.

Creature:  Melorael, Mammel

Problems:  The telepathy has not been explained just how it works.  Is this creature only able to send picture like thoughts to his owner, or can he also relay verbal things like someone's conversation.  How exactly does this creature use telepathy outside of his own kind?  Does this creature truly turn invisible or like a RL cameleon only uses cameflagoue that if looked closely enough at can be seen.

I know that Godding a creature is all up to the RP who is using it, but this creature has telepathy with his owner and can turn invisible.  To me, and my opinion is like butt holes, this creature should not be playable with these traits.  It is way too easy to fall into that God Modding of he is every where, can hear everything, read everything, etc. which is then sent to his master telepathically creating a vast amount of unpleasantness.

Hi Lady Cherri, I'm no bestiary mod, but I hope I can help you also.

There is clearly a contradiction in this entry and I think there was a discussion back then when this entry was in work that the for you problematic part is too unlikely .

You are referring to this:

Quote
The Cor'hm will feed and take care of a Mlor'el community in exchange for their ability to spy on other clans. The Mlor'el will use their supposed telepathy to "inform" the Cor'hm of rival clan activity.

Well, it contradicts clearly the part above where we find:
Quote
"the capability to "meld" with its environment and become practically invisible or the very unique and still unexplainable way to communicate with others of its kind through mental means."

Here we have, that it can communicate in this way with "others of its kind" .

The part about the invisibility says clearly, that it is only a very good camouflage, it doesn't vanish. If you would touch it it would be there. I would say, that you can see it, if you are close and looking directly at it and somebody has told you before, that there is one. Like with this special moths which hide on the bark of trees.

I don't know, if the entry should or will be altered (an option would be, that the humans/elves can only sense the emotions).

Maybe an option would be, that only Coor'hm elves who are trainers can have them and use their full abilities, otherwise they are only sold as normal pets , so their special abilities cannot be used in the RPG. It would then be the task of the story mod to see that this coor'hem trainer doesn't use it in a god like way, but that errors in the interpretations of these send pictures occur.

I'd say as long as we word it very very carefully (ie. A la Psyrpents) for the trainers, we should avoid any... "unpleasantness" yes? You make sure the word is the law and that there is NO (absolutely none) of this bending ze rules non?

The telepathy is very restricted when not between two Melor'ael. The Melor'ael are able to send out primitive impressions of what they have seen (not heard) to their elven caretakers.

Take notice that only Cor'hem elves can train a Melor'ael!

Decipher (a bestiary mod) is here...

I would suggest this...Limit (like Mira pointed out) these beasts as short range scouts only for Coor'hem elves...only those whose background would require one...

The problem would be that if I decided I wanted to use one I'd just have to be co'orhem and I'm on my way. I like the idea of trainers because it speciifically limits it to a safe degree.

They were originally written with just that idea in mind; that they were only available to Coor'hem. At RPG, that limits their use, as it makes every chanracter that uses one Nybelmarian based, as the Coor'hem dont travel about much, and the journey to Sarvonia is tremendously long..

Gentlemen, Cherri was looking for some definitive answers on what this particular creature is capable of. There were some questions on how this creature was being used. You guys have answered many of the concerns regarding this beast and how it should/could be used. Thank you very much for the timely reply  hug.
@Cherri: If you feel the creature is being overplayed then you as the story-mod have the right to address the problem as you see fit. If the problem is in the strength of the creature itself, then I recommend contacting an RP Admin. to have it placed in the banned/restricted area.
~Sincerely~

Thank you guys so much for the quick responses you have supplied.  The matter has been put to bed so the problem is no more. 

Thank you very much again for your time.  If someone could remove the thread or at least lock it it would be much appreciated.  I do not wish to take up valuable Bestiary space any longer.   grin

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
