possible 'hold' bug

Post  exkilter on Mon Dec 31, 2012 5:04 pm

my character was down by the river and ran into a bunch of grigs. all of a sudden she was no longer commandable -- same symptoms as cutscene immobilise.

she was wearing a belt of agility, so should not have been affected by anything resembling paralysis, and the 'entangle' spells the grigs were casting should also have had no effect.

Sadly, we have not a very 'animated' move to go with it but Grigs have a certain power known as Otto's Irresistable Dance. You were almost certainly under the effect of this spell.

Be well. Game on.

hmmm.... could i suggest making something indicate that in the chat window? there was absolutely nothing, and w/o that it's pretty irritating to have your character suddenly freeze in place and become non-commandable. you know, just something to advise the player that s/he's been hit by otto's irresistible dance and it's not a bug.

also, if it's like the original spell, the recipient has to be hit [range is touch] and this effect seemed to be spontaneously applied. any possibility of getting it to work as intended, or if not, allowing a save?

thanks!
