Checking Your Equipment

Medievia is big, having evolved over time. Consequently, there are thousands of different items available for players to collect and use. Different items come with different values and this can be confusing. Players can spend a long time with pieces of paper and a pencil to come up with the best statistics possible for their character. Some equipment can only be used by certain classes, by people of a certain level, and even by people of the appropriate alignment. To find a set of equipment that is ideal for your character can be very time consuming.

Medievia makes all this simpler by three ingame commands - Appraise, Compare and Mode.

The Identify spell (available by casting or through scrolls) allows you to know what an item does and, once cast on a particular item, your character will remember it until you give it away. Use the Appraise command to remember statistics instantly and evern tell others what your equipment can do over many of the communication channels we have to offer.

Identified items can be Compared to each other using, as you may expect, the Compare command. Compare two or more items of the same type...

=(inventory) Lev(7) Loc(body) AC-ap(4) NoBits hps(6) Cond(pristine) - a worn leather tunic
(inventory) Lev(7) Loc(body) AC-ap(4) NoBits hps(10) Cond(pristine) - a worn leather tunic

You can even compare all items for a specific location on your character, for example anything that could be worn on your body...

(inventory) Lev(0) Loc(body) AM AT AW NoBits armor(-10) Cond(pristine) - a robe of dusty sackcloth
=(inventory) Lev(7) Loc(body) AC-ap(4) NoBits hps(6) Cond(pristine) - a worn leather tunic
(inventory) Lev(7) Loc(body) AC-ap(4) NoBits hps(10) Cond(pristine) - a worn leather tunic

It's easy to know what your equipment does, but with the many aspects of Medievia you will find that some arrangements of equipment are more useful than others. Maybe you want to be more resilient for being in the front of a formation, or maybe you want more mana to heal with from the back. Perhaps you want to be able to move quickly for trading or to outrun a hunting dragon - for any of these cases you could have a lot of different equipment to wear.

This is where the Mode command comes into its own. You can set up any number of different modes of equipments and set them all with different statistics. The game will remember these for you so all you have to do is set them up and just tell Medievia what mode you want to use.

Who needs complicated client scripts when the game allows you to do any and all of these?
