    Well I guess that Phallus thing worked out pretty good for him. I imagine that’s how he hooked up with women that liked them as well. That was what got him killed wasn’t it?

    We know the Vampires will be aware of Ricther freeing them from Lich. Coukd it be possible that all the sentient undead received a prompt in regards to Ricther of the Mist Village?

    RICTHER of the Mist Village has slain the Lich! You have been freed by this action.

    Shouldn’t Ricther have received some points for that? I’m not saying that they should automatically become allies. Out of the thousands of troops what’s the chance that some of them had previously served the MV or as Sepulcher raised troops?

    How many of those sentient undead will be aware of the MV’s location?

    How many of those sentient dead will end up living at the vampires PoP? That should help Ricther some if they do. The vampires will still want to be sovereigns by their own right. A group living inside the vampires realm not being openly hostile with Ricther and the MV could be very important.

    I don't think they would be given the name of the slayer, just that their lord has been slain and they are now free. The vampire lords would know though.

    Might be some of those less important prompts he still hasn't gotten around to.

    He should also have gotten a slayer title for undead I think.

    Slayer?

    You mean Hero?

    Ricther just set a bunch of sentient dead free that have been living a life of involuntary servitude for an untold amount of time. At the very least they would be very appreciative. I also believe that in the land prompts have a purpose. I would certainly think that those freed would receive a prompt stating that their enslaver was killed and by whom even if it just says the Lord of the Mist. I think the Land is good at giving you credit for your actions no matter what they are.

    Vamps might only value strength and maybe some of the Honor! Maybe.
    Still they are a great asset and If Richter would say hey I killed the Litch, he would get a crap ton of street cred lol
    So at very least they would not be hostile to him, also with his Bigger size now and Tier 2 and Undead Charizma I would put 60% to 40% that Vamps would come to help killing some bugbears.

    Slayer titles aren't a bad thing, unless its for something fucked. Probably don't wanna go around with the tier 3 baby or unicorn slayer title out on display, but most higher tiered slayer titles mean you are one hell of a badass. What goblin would mess with Richter if they knew his title? He has slain thousands.


    He gets an additional 35% to attack and defense. Most goblins at his powerlevel would be crushed by the disparity.

    I hadn’t thought about getting them to help against the big bears. That’s not a bad idea.

    I’m not saying a slayer title is bad. I just think that the sentient undead won’t get a notification saying Ricther is a slayer.

    I dont think Goblins got a notification like that either. Wasn’t it sad that with him having that title Goblins will want to attack him on sight?

    My point was that he should be working to at least friendly with all the sentient dead he freed. Ricther had already received some relationship points with the dead due to the crypt mistress blood given to the dungeon. So since freeing the sentient dead he should be doing pretty good. Even if the vampires don’t like him that much the sentient dead living around them would. That’s an advantage he might need to exploit at some point.

    I diden't mean to say that he shouldn't be friendly or that they should be getting notifications, but Richter and Alma must have slain a lot of sapient undead when the cavern caved in and during the fighting. He could get a notification for killing enough of some race, much as he gained one for unwittingly slaughtering those innocent goblin civies. Shit happens in war.

    Vampires respect strength. Vampire slayers are hated, feared and respected, as Richter would be if he was one. I think it would be much like a calling card, saying "I can destroy you". Its a way of going from food to rival predator.

    That said, if he gets one it will probably be for sapient skeletons or another low-rank race that the lich had in vast numbers.

    Most of the deaths would have been caused by the Exiles Mana Energy Bolts and Blasts, so even though it was Richters and Alma's actions that triggered his rampage it is quite unlikely that those deaths would count towards a Slayer Title.
    Those directly killed by Richter would (so a fair number of Ghasts, as well as some other strong sentient types), due to Alma being Soul Bonded Familiar of Richter and acting under his orders those Ghosts/Spirits she killed might well count towards(?) a Slayer Title and anything that was killed by Richters Abyssal-Celestial Bombs Explosion and the Falling Exiles Statue/Icon are also likely too count towards one as well, but I could be wrong(?).

    But the Real question is about the Maulers kills? It's first Kills when it was under Richters Control as his Pet should count towards Slayer Titles, but after Richter Evolved it and it Broke Free from Richters Control then it is highly likely that the Maulers Kills that followed stopped counting towards any of Richters Titles, but I might be wrong and as long as the Evolution Spell was in effect then they still might, but it's pretty unlikely.

    Plus another thing to think about is that like his Preferred Enemy Buff that he can Purchase from his War Leader Skill where there was different Buffs that he could have bought for different types of Undead and Living Dead that he had fought in the past I strongly suspect that the Slayer Titles his kills are counting towards in regards to Undead and Living Dead will fall into many different categories. For instance - Ghast Slayer, Skeleton Slayer, Bodak Slayer, Ghoul Slayer, Fade Slayer, Zombie Slayer, Barrow Beast Slayer, Wraith Slayer, Ghost Slayer, Lich Slayer, ect. Which would also help to explain why he didn't get a Slayer Title towards them yet. As would if(?) Alma's and Pets kills don't count to wards them, but I think that that would be unlikely.
    But there is probably plenty of Titles that are pretty close to getting to the point of becoming active, so we'll just have to wait for him to fight and kill some more of those types in the future.

    Ricther got that for the Goblins because he literally cast the spell. Yes it was the bloodstone acting through him but it was his physical being that uttered the words. Plus Ricther agreed to work with the bloodstone in order to get it done. He had struck a deal.

    I agree about the Vampires. I think he only needs to worry about one of them anyway.

    My point has been and still is Ricther should have received a shit load of relationship points with the sentient undead. With the bonus from the dungeon for giving it the crypt mistress blood and some sizeable relationship points Ricther should be looking pretty good to those sentient undead.

    Especially if he used his BloodLine when interacting with them.


    I am wondering what other types of Non-Slayer Titles that Richter might be heading towards activating and what Buffs they may grant him? Things like Savoir/Hero Of, or Friend Of, or Creator Of Titles?

    I totally agree Lynas!

    I would think everything that did die to Ricthers direct plan, his orders, or by those he ordered should count. There could be an argument made about his direct causation. For instance the bombing of the statue led the exile to destroying the mausoleum. Which Ricther did get credit for. I really don’t recall any cavern falling in and killing the sentient undead. I do recall them joining together in order to fight their way out of the place. I also have my doubts wether the magical eruption was like the epicenter of a nuclear strike. Honestly from what I understood it was more of a directional discharge of energies. Recalling it from my short memory it was beams of energy cutting swaths through the Litches forces and his mausoleum. It had to be blast of rays or it wouldn’t have only destroyed the staircase to start with. If it would have been completely radiant blast everything else including Ricther would had been hit at that point.

    That is EXACTLY what I have been thinking of. He had to earn some relationship points. After all it was even sad the Nien seemed to hate Singh. Think of how long some of those characters would have been enslaved by the litch. If I had were freed from over 2000 years of slavery by a Litch I think I would owe someone dinner and a beer! They might even deserve one of those thumb down jobs.

    One thing I really want to Know is wether Magic Users are Limited to only having one (Regular) Familiar at a time?
    Or if it is possible to use the Familiar Summon Spells from Different Elements to Summon/Call and Bond more then one Familiar to them and so have multiple Familiars?
    Presumably Familiar Spells are rare and probably difficult to Cast and may well require additional Items and Spell Materials, that combined with the fact that Multi Element Casting Magic Users aren't the Norm would mean that even if it was possible it would be pretty rare for someone to have more then one but it would be very useful, especially for Richter that could Theoretically have a Familiar from all of the Magic Types that he has Awoken and can find a Familiar Spell for.

    I also want to know about different types/strengths of Familiar Spells and how they might effect a Lesser Familiar you already have? For instance Beyan has a Spell for Summon(/Create?) a Lesser Undead Familiar, after he uses that Spell and gets his Lesser Undead Familiar what if he then later gets a Spell for a Medium Undead Familiar(or even Greater?). What will using that upgraded stronger Spell do? Will it Upgrade his Existing Familiar, or will it Replace his Existing Familiar with the Stronger one, or will it even give him a second Stronger Familiar alongside his Lesser Family?

    It was sort of vaguely implied that it might be possible to have more then one Soul Familiar, at least as long as there was more then one Soul Fragment in existence that could be made into another Soul Familiar? If Richter can find another Soul Familiar Spell/Tome I guess we will find out. Would be interesting to see what type of creature it might be, be especially interesting if it turned out to be another Draconic being.
    The Fact that Beyan has a Lesser Undead Familiar Spell and that Richter has most Likely Copied it likely means that once Richter gets his Death Magic to a higher enough Level that he will at least try to use it to get himself an Undead Familiar, I guess we will see them wether he can have a Soul Familiar and a regular Familiar. If he can that might mean the possibility of having multiple regular Familiars is more likely. I guess we will see when Richters Death Magic gets high enough.

    You know as much trouble as Beyan has had with women and his death magic it only seems fair if he gets a familiar. Beyan, needs something in his life and if Ricther ever does learn the summon soul Familiar he should create a scroll for Beyan. That way Beyan could summon his soul familiar

    Ricther had pondered the growth situation in his village. He had mentioned the rate of pregnancies and the growth rate of his people. The thing I am curious about is the increased ambient mana. We have been told how it effects the monsters and how it has affects on the land itself. With the increase of different types of higher magical ambient manas shouldn’t we see the people of the Mist gain infinities? Being raised in an area with high celestial mana should increase those children’s infinity for that type. So with the Dungeon utilizing blood magic should we not see an increase in those infinities as well.

    Affinities are largely determined by the nature of your race. Dwarf life mages like Krom are very much outliers. I wouldn't be surprised if dwarves are a rank 2 specialised race - hence the extra point per level - where part of the reward is specialised affinities. Humans would be a rank 1 race, with no affinity focus area.

    I don't think more/stronger affinities will come from rising the mana level, not directly. Instead newborns will get stronger affinities as the mist village is developed. Already the likelihood of a life mage being born in the village is much greater than elsewhere.



    For building a level 3 house of healing on a life place of power the bonus is 3x higher.

    So depending on how Aleron calculates this there are either 4 or 3 times the regular number of life mages in the next generation, across races.

    This seems to be a bonus for building a third level building, though only for a factor 1 increase.
