Semi-related to this... I think it would be neat to have a page with all effects that give you a line in your description. (Possibly minus the shield ones, since those are listed here.) But I'm not sure what to call it. Any ideas? --Ilde 22:15, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Maybe just "Effects"? Or maybe "Look line" or "Desc line" or "Status"... Frazyl 04:38, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
- I like "description lines"... then it could be a page about the various stuff you see when you look at people, including various effects. Yeah. --Ilde 05:50, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Shields & covert
There's been clues (cre messages on boards or newspapers or elsewhere) that some or all arcane shields may add a penalty to covert actions, presumably similar to having lights on you.
For example, floaters are likely to penalize covert, since I remember some cre saying so.
Bug shield probably as well perhaps depending on bug type, those assassin bugs seem rather covert themselves.
Possibly others shields too. I only roughly tested with BP family guards and it seemed easier to pass them without the shields but it wasn't all that clear.
