I respectfully disagree. I am not saying all of it should be. But, I'm not a rogue and you are. And I think our differences on this issue are why you play a rogue and I play a cleric. I'm happy to talk in pm if you feel slighted in quest, and I'd like to keep this discussion general rather than incite specific complaints.

Don't worry, I don't feel slighted, :laugh:  Guts got an awesome weapon, and that's cool! I just think that loot distribution and money making skills should be kept seperate, that's my opinion, how I will lead a party (and have done so twice and a bit without complaints :tongue: ), and if you disagree with that, that's fine too. :tongue:

In my view, generally speaking Rogue earnings should not be considered for loot distribution; however, in a large battle with lots of Heroes but few items, Rogues who earn a lot of Gold in-battle should keep in mind that this will likely put you at the bottom of the loot distribution tree, simply because you HAVE gained something good from the battle while the other Heroes have not.

That said, if there's an item that's perfectly suited to a Hero roleplaying-wise, special consideration should be given for that even if it means matchmaking item swaps; story is THE biggest strong point of the game, and our game-mechanical abilities should reflect this. :wink:

Man, poor little Hybros is just carrying an abundance of weapons from Zoot.

Question - will we be hearing more of Hybros' origins soon, JimBee?  It featured heavily at first, but has (right-fully) taken a back seat.  I'd love to see some of it again  soon!

I agree. I usually try not to consider the Gold Rogues get when I distribute the loot; that is their class strength and they shouldn't receive less loot for taking advantage of it. But when we're talking as ridiculous an amount as 700 Gold, then I think you have to at least think about that when you're distributing the Gold. I wouldn't ask the Rogue to give up Gold, though. If there's an item among the loot that he wants badly enough, he's probably going to give up Gold buying it from another player or offer to give up Gold to get it anyways. You shouldn't make someone spend Gold on something they don't want. I'd rather have 700 Gold and no loot than 500 Gold and an item I don't really want.

Not to get all political, but this debate seems strangely familiar to the one the Congress is having right now about taxing the rich more.  I can see both sides of the coin, but in my opinion if I was rich I wouldn't mind getting taxed a bit more (i.e. less loot).  Like I said, if I was Party Leader I would take the amount of Gold stolen into consideration, but it certainly wouldn't be the main point I base my decision off of.  When you get that rich in one round, though, you shouldn't complain when you get slightly less loot unless you're a greedy person with no consideration for the poor people beneath you. :tongue:

Honestly, if Arthur ever met Guts, he would legitimately try to kill him.  I simply cannot see any interaction whatsoever between those two that would not result in direct combat, unless one or both of us broke character.  Seriously, QMs, do not put Guts and Arthur together even by chance, it WILL destroy the mission. :sceptic:

Guts has a really, really strict worldview, and unlike Cronk he doesn't bother to be diplomatic about what he says.  (Note how even Cronk lost some of Arthur's respect because of this towards the end of Quest 38.)  Arthur is, for the most part, on the side of Chaos, which to Guts seems to automatically mean "evil".  Even if Guts didn't automatically attack Arthur for being a Chaos-aligned Mage, he would very likely say something slighting Arthur's beliefs, and (as we saw with Haldor), Arthur won't take that lying down, whether or not he's actually right.

Plus, it's more than likely that, on a Quest, Guts would do something to a rare artifact like he tried to do to the book of Chaos in the Temple of Zoot.  Trust me: if Arthur had seen you do that, he would have a.) called Guts a fool for attempting to destroy Chaotic knowledge that (in Arthur's view) is inherent in the nature of the world, and then b.) laughed in his face for thinking he even had the power to destroy such knowledge.

EDIT: Arthur also doesn't take well to racial epithets, especially directed towards his friends.  (Calling De'kra "demonspawn" is yet another quick way to get on Arthur's nerves.)  Guts acts bluntly superior to everyone else, and Arthur doesn't like people who think they're better than others, anyway.

In short, both are characters who respond strongly, sometimes even violently about what they believe, and their beliefs are diametrically opposed.  That's not going to end well no matter how you slice it. :wink:
