Jumping off a roof
While in combat

Wrote to the admin about this on xhelp last night without a response.

Currently you cannot jump off an edge while in combat.

You MAY be able to stop attacking and jump off an edge - I'm not sure about that.

What do YOU think? Does this make sense? Has this disrupted anything for you or players you know? Will it make sense to a new player?

This used to be possible. However, the moment someone was losing in combat they could just jump off. If they were smart, they would have a paraglider. Meaning if they lured someone up to a rooftop, and were smart about it, they could basically try to kill the person and then flee (without contest) every time, off a rooftop, which the player they were fighting might not have been able to do, if they didn't have a glider.

We could possibly incorporate a skill check while in combat to rooftop combat, if that is something that players think is needed and will happen often enough to warrant the changes to the code.

Thoughts?

Provided it operated under the same restrictions as a flee check - I'm all for it. Ranged weapons could be a perk her but shooting across roofs isn't possible yet though.

I think it's a feature that could be cool but isn't necessarily needed.

I definitely agree this would be a nice feature. How often it would get used.. I am not so sure about, but it'd be great to have the option, with the correct skill-checks of course.

Also, since we are on the subject.. jumping off a roof with someone grappled. I would love this, also with the necessary skill-checks. Like a resist check and a shove check both before success.

Player A grapples Player B.

Player A shouts maniacally at Player B "We both die together, baka!"

Player A jumps off the s edge.

Player B is dragged along.

The possibilities.. mmmmm...

That would be mother*beeping* epic if that made it into combat code, which I will never learn how to do. Maybe next year's Rampage, I'll get it.
