Night fighting

Post by michellembrodeur » July 12th, 2010, 5:15 pm

Can you make it so not all enemies can see in the dark like its daylight.

Seems totally unfair to me. Thugs and such should have to use a torch or lantern or something also.

Also bees to not fly at night and so forth.

Most of the enemies in the game recieve penalties for fighting in darkness.

They're not bees, but I'm not sure what that has to do with them flying at night.

Apparently, bees don't. I think that was his point, anyway.

That said, as a rogue I'd have to kill myself if thugs carried lanterns.

Yeah, on Earth at least, bees are diurnal. I don't personally make assumptions as to how biology's come about in Eschalon, though. :)

(That said, the bees-flying-around-at-night in Book 1 did kind of bug me, for that reason.)

They are Hornets/wasps. Big difference as they sting over and over without dying.
Humm, Wiki doesn't say if they can or will fly at night. Interesting read though.

Apparently some varieties of hornet/wasp do in fact fly at night.
