Town Jail

Post by anto_capone on Sun Jun 03, 2012 8:58 am

The Town JailDear Seekers,

The coding for the Town Jail has been completely finished!
Whenever a town builds the Jail structure they will have a complete working jail.

The Jail is to put away Seekers who for example didn't pay taxes or did
other naughty stuff. It is the game who will calculate your time in
prison, not the council itself.
As long the towns do not build a jail, they are not capable to jail people neither Smile

Let me tell you in short what options you have in the jail.
- Visitors can give bread to prisoners. This is handy as in jail you do
not get food! So to stay alive in jail its good to have friends.
- Visitors can throw rocks & eggs to the prisoner. Great for your mood and agility!
- Prisoners can sit and wait for their release. Every day their time in jail gets automaticly reduced.
- Prisoners can pay their debt to the town(if they have any).
- Prisoners who are debt-free can work for their release. The Grail
Lords will use their diplomatic skills to get the prisoner released
faster.
- Prisoners can try to escape out of jail. Especially handy for big criminals who would have to stay long time.

Further updates remain possible. We will first see how things work out with what we have now!

Thanks for reading!

Arogandor Grail Lord

Is there any way to fight guards before you are taken to jail?

That depends on the situation.

If for example you try to sneak out the town, and the guard catches you, you will be able to resist your arrest.

But...this is not supposed to be another fight for experience. The guard represents the town and will not be an easy target.
When the new combat is in play you will be able to fight with (and against) multiple targets. So fighting...will be a challenge Smile

I recently noticed that some Seekers have trouble with the Town Jail. So here is some info.

First of all, the Jail is considered to be a sanction. Not paying your taxes and beating up the Town Guard is not exactly considered to be "noble".

When you are in the Jail you are a prisoner in all it's aspects.
- You won't be able to eat.
- You won't be able to feed your animals
- You can't leave the jail just like that.

Your skills will decrease if you are starving from hunger. The only way to get food in the jail, is if a friend of yours bring you a bread. You will eat that bread automatically when you are hungry.

There are 4 click-able area's on the image
- The broom: helps you to pay your debt to the town, where you are jailed.
- The Grail: Allows you to lower your penalty. Can only be done if you are debt free.
- The hole in the floor: offers you a chance to escape.
- The barred window: offers you a chance to escape.

If there are more questions, post them here, so that I can answer them Smile

How many units does it take to dig out of jail and break the bar off the window? Also can any stats affect these? And in case you're not willing to answer those questions, does digging the hole and breaking the bar require the same amount of units to complete either option?

Exact amount I will not give.

Digging and breaking start with the same amount of units. But each time the prisoner works on one of the way's to escape the amount drops, so escaping is the work of many prisoners. And only one will succeed. After that the units of the way are set to starting amount again.

Your mining & Endurance skill have effect while digging.
Your Patience & Blacksmith skill have effect while breaking the bars.

Does each cell in the Jail have a different amount of units to dig/break ?
or
Does the whole jail have a common amount of units to dig/break ??

Each Town has it's own Jail.

That Jail can be seen as one big cell.

Strength has many uses already and in Jail you are supposed feel weak. I prefer to keep it the current way.

I'm sure the jail was designed to hold the occasional troll thief anyways, right Aro? Very Happy

Town Jail Update


After the ongoing Feast Event we plan to make a change in the Town Jail.


Instead of giving penalty points like we do now, prisoners will be in jail for complete days rather than penalty points. Using days in jail will be more easy to keep track of criminals and make the system less complicated. This update will result that "working for your release" no longer will be possible. However you might still be able to pray to the Grail Lords, lowering your time with a day.


Feel free to add your suggestions & opinions.
