Challenge from the Dead Information Forum No. 4
1: This is a forum to gather information related to the Challenge from the Dead.
Absolutely no trolls. Since 950 people had posted, I made the next thread.
144: Gathering together all the info we have at the moment; having Thief Skill is absolutely necessary, always assume there’s traps, and don’t say Thief Skill is overkill; is that OK?
145: That’s about it, right?
For the monsters, Zombies and Skeletons are weak, but Wights and Soldier Skeletons are about medium.
146: Actually, forget monsters, death by traps is a lot more-ish?
147: Traps are scarier, ne, at least for now. Some nasty guys might come out in the floors we haven’t got to further down, though.
148: No one has the impossible Thief Skill required, naiwa-.
149: Even in my Guild no one’s taken it, so we’re a wee bit in trouble …
150: ‘cause it throws all your plans and stuff full-blast out of order; that 8 ExP needed to take it is heavy as shit.
151: But actually, it’s not if you get down to it; even though I thought it would be fine without, I was a dumbass and suicided a few hours ago.
152: >151 what happened?
153: They’re different from all the other traps up until now; you can’t get any sort of feel for them naa, the challenge’s traps.
154: >152, staggering from a landmine I stepped on, I fell into a pitfall that was there and died from the fall damage …
155: > Are you in some old cartoon skit or something? Lol, the total slapstick victim, na, lolololol
156: >154, dumbass; good combo lolol
157: I’m not 154, but since the number of traps really are a lot, you just continue to step on them one after another, ne.
158: Actually, there’s quite a few instant-death combos … when you step on one, it’s over; ridiculous.
159: But traps and all are things that are supposed to be like that … Eh? There’s a game like that na …1
160: 159> don’t say anything more about it.
161: >155&156, I was seriously depressed when I took the hit …? If it was you guys, you’d be depressed too.
162: > MonHouse (monster house) is also properly included, but it’s beyond nasty …
163: >It looks like you can’t exit it, the MonHouse. There’s nothing you can do other than to get completely wiped out.
164: Is it impossible to get people on the otherside of the door to open it so you can leave?
165: >164, I tried it but got stopped by an invisible wall; it’s impossible. The devs here aren’t that soft.
167: A, so it really won’t work.
168: And there are a lot of them; when you go to enter a large room, you better go in prepared, yo.
169: But there’s a good chance of there being treasure chests, na, ~ big rooms.
170: Yeah,yeah! A lot of gold rolling around in your hands – like that, ne
171: And then you die in a MonHou, lol
172: yeah, like that, like that, lolol
173: oldest trick in the book lol
174: But you know, this is from a previous party, but there’s this story about when they were trapped in the MonHou and another party came in to save them.
175: Ho ho, and then?
176: And then the party that came to save them were really strong, and they helped heal them; up until they won, everything was good.
177: E? It’s not over after they won?
178: They have to open the treasure chest after for it to be over, right?
179: You’ll need to split it equally among everyone in the room … A, could it be that they got kicked out and it was stolen?
180: It’s pretty much what you guessed, but when he went to open it, the mob-looking bow user said, “There’s a trap, don’t open it!”
181: E, as if the reward treasure from the MonHou would have a trap…
182: A super easy-to-tell thief – lolololol
183: Anyone who reads this here won’t fall for him lolololol
184: And a bow; an idiot, he has to be an idiot lolololol
185: And, that party also thought that, and said, “Are you trying to monopolize it?”
186: Damn right.
187: Of course, you need to stand up to thieves.
188: Just because you came to save them, you can’t just take all of it.
189: Un, he didn’t do anything wrong.
190: After he said that, it seems the other said, “We’ll be leaving right away, so don’t open that treasure chest until we leave.”
192: He’s … not a thief?
193: Oi oi, the direction of the story is changing.
194: And then, they really left the room super fast, it seems …
195: Ee-? Why are they abandoning the reward?
196: I’ve heard of the practice where they save you from the MonHou and demand everything, but this is the first time I heard of abandoning it.
197: Are they just nice guys … well, that’s not the feeling I’m getting, naa?
198: Isn’t it simply because it’s their first challenge so they don’t know?
199: A- that could be it.
200: And after they had left the room, he opened the reward treasure chest, and then …
201: Rare drop-?
202: Something good come out? I mean, you’re dragging it out like this.
204: … a ton of Grim Reapers came out of the treasure chest and killed them …
206: There’s that kind of trap too!?
207: They couldn’t escape? Those guys.
208: They probably couldn’t fight them? Just from what I heard. First of all, they couldn’t fight, since it seems like their weapons just went through them.
209: What’s with that, then it really was meant to be a trap?
210: Just slipping through is impossible-
211: And then the door of the room closed again and they couldn’t open it to escape.
212: Uwa … they got done.
213: So you mean they can’t escape until they die.
214: Even though they completely thought there weren’t any traps at all until they opened it … scaaaary!?
215: That trap; it’s a trap we’ve never heard of …
216: Then, the bow user was totally just trying to warn them.
217: He was a good person, then.
218: And just look at you guys before; you were totally treating him like a thief lol
219: How did the bow user see through it …
220: Cause his Thief Skill is high level, not gut instinct?
221: No way it was his gut, with that kind of trap detection ability, he’d never die.
222: So then it’s purely because he has a high-level Thief Skill?
223: Bow and Thief combo so he can do Search & Destroy, that’s not so weird.
224: I get that it’s useful if for fighting long distance, but leveling it up to there?
225: Anyway, there’s that sort of trap too, so everyone out there, be careful.
226: Isn’t this info that should be posted on the Wiki?
227: yeah, I’ll go do that.
228: Thanks for your efforts.
230: That was good info; it was a bit long, but I approve.
231: Or like, there are really that many traps? There are a lot of stories about having Thief Skill but still triggering them.
232: And the ones with high levels are probably all snagged up by the Guilds.
233: A stray Thief is pretty rare, na.
234: No, well, right now they’re even more rare?
235: You said it … we’ve got tons of people with combat capabilities, but people with Thief are SERIOUSLY few.
236: Once in a while there are people who say they have Thief so add them, and they’re always picked up right away.
237: but if you want to enter the dungeon, it’s a dilemma
238: Yeah, yeah
239: I totally feel your pain …
240: It really feels like we’re playing THAT1 from a long time ago …
231: I even have GuilMem(guild members) who’ve had their spirits broken, so I understand your feelings …
242: It’s a dungeon that really tries to kill you, na–
243: All the guys who half-heartedly play are probably stunned – na.
A/n: Since this is an extra edition, there is no Skill Writeup.
And, it’s the net forums.
- Probably both Wizardry. I’m not sure if there are any others…
<t/N: Thank you RS for your donation!
It’s a good chapter hehehe… The extra editions (esp the BBS ones) are a whole lot more fun to translate.
I wonder when I can get back to translating more often…>
