Quote from: slipshod on July 30, 2021, 07:18:36 PMI agree with most of the OP about crossbows.I think the armor puncturing idea is a good one, and I could get behind the knocking down idea as well. What about dismounting the target if they are riding and the crossbow is powerful enough?On the third suggestion, I do think there ought to be a delay for aiming the crossbow. Maybe the delay could scale with distance. So the briefest of delays in an indoor room with the target, slightly longer in an outdoor city room, longer still in an outdoor wilderness room, near, far, etc.? I've never fired a crossbow IRL, so I don't know if that's realistic about aiming time.

Quote from: Pariah on July 30, 2021, 08:00:34 PMI've never used one because it's always been an archery > crossbow type branch and if I'm already a master (or advanced) at archery why mess with learning something new?I always assumed they did more damage but couldn't tell you codedly if they do or not.Now I want to go buy a crossbow and play with it in game.

Quote from: The7DeadlyVenomz on July 31, 2021, 01:32:15 PMOh, forgot something. Crossbows should do more damage than bows by a lot. Make bows do way less damage, but that's offset by how fast they are to fire.
Quote from: Tranquil on July 31, 2021, 02:08:02 PMJust to clarify, I don't want an -instant- knockdown, I mean a chance of one. Maybe increased with skill? *shrug
QuoteAlso, I'd like you to be able to sit down with a crossbow and fire it, gaining an accuracy bonus. It would also make it one of those scary sorta weapons that somebody could shoot you with across the table.
Quote from: Pariah on July 31, 2021, 03:04:36 PMWhile I know it's magnitudes more force. I've been shot at 10 feet in a bullet proof vest with trauma plate and it knocked me out cold, broke three ribs and punctured a lung, almost died.I've also been shot from about 100 feet into a bulletproof vest and it still knocked me onto my ass and gave me a hell of a bruise.I don't think the distance is going to drop off that much within 1-2 rooms.
