WOODLORE - Achaea Online Help
Woodlore is a skill composed of four types of abilities: Setting traps Summoning animal guardians Weapon abilities Survival abilities TRAPS ----- - Each trap is constructed of commodities. When laying a trap, you must have the required commodities (listed in the AB HELP files) in your inventory. - Traps get laid in directions. The general syntax is LAY <trap> <direction>. - Traps are set off _only_ by those on your enemies list. They will be set off when someone either enters or leaves the room by the direction you specified. - Some traps will stop movement when sprung. For instance, if you are leaving a room with a snare trap in it set to the direction you are leaving, you will set off the snare before you leave the room, and it will prevent you from moving. ANIMAL GUARDIANS ---------------- - The animals you summon may be ordered about with the commands in HELP DENIZENS. - If you leave Achaea and do not come back quickly, they will disappear back into the forest. - You may call your summoned animals to you with CALL ANIMALS. - You may CALL ANIMALS PASSIVE to call them back to you in passive form, if they are aggressive. - You may DISMISS <animal> to return a summoned animal to the wild. WEAPON ABILITIES ---------------- - When you gain the skill of woodlore, you are given the axe proficiency and given the choice between the spear and trident proficiency. Spear and trident are exactly the same for the purposes of Woodlore, so choose whichever you prefer. CHOOSE SPEAR or CHOOSE TRIDENT. The choice is irreversible. SURVIVAL ABILITIES ------------------ - These abilities assist you in surviving out on your own.
