unexpected loss of Int points

My Draconian suddenly had lost (temporarily) an Int point in [[0.12]. Why? No potion, no orb of energy, no brain drain enemy in melee. I looked up the protocol: "The orc hits you with an orcish dagger. You feel dopey." - Nothing in the wiki description of dranonian characters gives any hint how this could happen. Anybody ou there who has knowledge or hypothesis on the possible cause? The cold liability of draconians? Anything new in 0.12? -- Bwijn 11:59, 1 June 2013 (CEST)

Sorry, it was a bad mutation: "Your body is slowly deteriorating." Had overlooked it. -- Bwijn 12:33, 1 June 2013 (CEST)

Where do some resistances come from?

Resistances w/o obvious origins
It's 0.14a/trunk. See graphics. Where do some resistances come from? Poison and elec resist is not naturally part of Draconians, even less the cold resistance. No equipment and no mutations are base of it. How come? Any ideas out there? -- Bwijn (talk) 13:18, 12 November 2013 (CET)
I'm seeing an unexplained rF+, rC+, rElec, and rPois. My guess would be the user just quaffed a potion of resistance. Have I solved your riddle, good sir Bwijn? --MoogleDan (talk) 13:44, 12 November 2013 (CET)

Some new edits

The organization of the color information, etc., all looked quite good. However, I would definitely consider Draconians relatively easy as far as species go, so I moved them. I also edited some of the information that I found to be misleading or not particularly relevant; the synergy with dragon form is not something to base one's background off of, for instance. Also Draconian aptitudes are average or above average (0 is above average for most aptitudes).

Yours, and into

Tail-slap in water

So, I recently ran a grey draconian transmuter (who got killed in the Shoals by a snapping turtle I didn't even notice, dammit!), and there were a couple of times when I hit something with a tail-slap while standing in water and it got knocked backwards a space. How does that work? Is it exclusive to grey draconians, or does it happen with other draconians and merfolk? Does it only happen while I'm standing in deep water? --spudwalt (talk) 23:59, 23 March 2014 (CET)

Black draconian breath

Is a black draconian breath weapon the same thing as a disc of storms? If I find one does my breath weapon become obsolete? --Fingolfin (talk) 21:15, 30 June 2015 (CEST)

Well, the two are similar. I know a disc of storms has a considerably lower success rate -- the success rate doesn't start getting reasonable until like 20 Evocations. However, discs of storms aren't subject to a breath timer. I'd say, if you've got good Evocations skill and you want to fire electricity at ALL the things, use your breath weapon first, then start trying the disc of storms while you're waiting for your breath to recharge. Of course, I rarely use discs of storms/black draconian breath attacks anyways, since they're so unpredictable and likely to backfire horribly. --spudwalt (talk) 23:15, 30 June 2015 (CEST)
