Guys,

After making version 9.1 of UV, one of my testers sent in this, (along wioth a very long list of bugs).

What do you think about it?
-Part of the fun of another land is the option to go make a suicide charge into a fully-loaded town... why deny adventurers the fun?

(They're asking about the towns in the Vahnatai Lands)

Well, hey. I doubt there'd actually be MILLIONS of guards there, and I could hack down a decent bunch of Vahnatai at that point.

It's really up to you whether you feel like putting in the effort to add an actual Vahnatai city or not. If it's just going to be lines of monsters and a storeroom, don't bother.

To echo sentiments from other threads and distant discussions, why are my 1-4 characters deciding to attack an entire town filled with who knows how many "bad guys" of unknown strength?

I would completely understand it if a recon was permissible, showing that the town deserved annihilation. Now that would make it interesting...

Please polish what you already have to the point that everything works properly. No new additions until all the current bugs are fixed. I am waiting for it to come out. Hopefully, by this weekend. Stop adding things.

Oh, I'll release it by this weekend easily enough. This is the obly thing I'm waiting for. If the community want it, I'll put it in before Saturday. If they don't I'll just forget about it, and release UV Testing 9.2 to testers tomorrow.

Ah... I recognize my comments. But what I meant was this: give them the option to charge in via a special encounter, and if you don't feel like making a whole town, make it a huge outdoor battle (or just autokill the party).

i.e.: "This Vahnatai town appears to be brimming with guards, though it only appears to be a small port town. Attacking the town could be risky to your mission... do you really want to? (Yes/No)"
Yes -> huge outdoor battle / autokill

I hope that made sense.

I wish there was an "only do it if it will be good" option.

Well, I've decided NOT to do it, and UV will be out this weekend.

There's really nothing wrong with it whatsoever, and my testers are all busy. If any more bugs are found, I will just release an update.
