Imprison -> Freedom = dead Valen?
« on: April 08, 2003, 11:27:54 AM »
While cleaning out the Beholder lair in the Underdark an Elder Orb cast Imprisonment on Valen. After the fight I used a Freedom spell from a scroll and Valen immediately died after being freed.  :o
Now I don't see why being imprisoned should kill Valen (or any Vampire for that, after all it's a spot well away from the sun. :) So is this intentional or a bug?

Documented bug.  Check the ReadMe.

It's not explicitly in the README, but I just added it.

Anyway, in some sense this is a game engine bug -- they count imprisonment as death (presumably because they didn't want to have to duplicate all of their death-checking code).

Hehe, seems Weimer ahs the 6th sense, I just came here, read the response saying it's in the readme and went to check if I'm really that blind (cause I had checked that before posting). 2 min laters I come back and find Weimers answer. :)

Anyway thanks for the info... oh and thanks for creating Valen in the 1st place. She's tons of fun. :)
