Damage - Help File

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When one character attacks another, the severity of the damage is displayed by
the verb used in the damage message. Damage messages vary depending on the type
of weapon or attack. Escalating damage is indicated by the use of _ _ around
the messages. Messages in all caps indicate even higher degrees of damage,
while those surrounded by * * indicate the highest levels.

The message shown reflects the actual damage you are inflicting on (or
receiving from) your opponent, and not a specific fixed amount.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is important to note that not only does damage affect a character's health,
but objects on the character or in the character's inventory are also
affected.

Damage Reduction due to Resistances

Resists are scaled so that after first 10% the reduction scales down. Affected by Resistances caps at 40% and provides 20% effective damage resistance to the damage type.

Additionally, Resist Plus1 = resist unarmed or no wielded weapon attacks. Rend/choke may be modified by plus1 damage resistance.

Foot Note:

PWReset:
- This new command will allow players to put in a hidden email address (will not show in score or whois) so that their character can be 'tagged' to 
them for purpose of password resets. Please see HELP PWReset for more information. Code adjustment by Kinux. 

Change to Constitution:
- Constitution will now have a slight affect on how much damage a player or mob receives when being dealt damage. Each additional point of constitution 
results in a slightly added impact. This applies to all sources of damage. 

In addition, if a player has a higher constitution rating than the maximum for his or her class, the additional constitution will still affect this 
bonus.

In addition:

There have been a number of behind the scenes code updates by Belkira, Sepharoth and Gonnil. Our many thanks!

Constitution will benefit your saving throws vs poison/death. Wisdom will benefit your saving throws vs wands, spells/staves. 

When killed, you may seek out your killer for vengeance. Upon killing the enemy that killed you, you will receive an experience bonus.
