Eschalon: Book II - Question of the Week

by Magerette, 2008-08-03 18:24:35

After skipping a week, Basilisk Games has returned to the fray with Question #6  in their "Question of the Week" feature on the content of Eschalon: Book II, presently in development.

It's a short one so I'll quote it in full:

Question #6:
[realmsmaster] Since there will be weather and climate effects, will the type of weather or climate have an effect on the character? Example, I am in a desert. I should roast in full plate armor. Will I have to switch my armor to something more appropriate?

As of now we have no plans of doing this type of statistic tracking (i.e. comfort level of character based on temperature or climate).

However, it has been mentioned that climate will affect your hunger and thirst bars, if you have the hunger/thirst rule turned on. Specifically, the desert region will make you consume water more quickly and the arctic regions will make you consume food more quickly.
