Defensive Calls

Does a person need to call out when they use a resist or say at least no effect? I would say yes for the most part becasue it can be obivious the effect did not take. The only expection could be the sleep call.

It is not rule issue, it is a courtesy issue I suspect.

calling "resist" if your resisting fear/sleep/magic/etc or "no effect" if your just not affected does a few things:

1) acknowledges to the attacker,that you are aware you were hit by the attack and that you didnt just miss it/ignore it

2) lessens the chance or the perception of a target/victim being seen as possibly cheating or "rhino hiding" effects

3) lets the attacker garner in game info that they should have access to (they see you put effort into shrugging off the fear/sleep/poison/disease effect, or see that it takes you no effort at all and will never be effected or similar in game visuals they WOULD get if this was RL)


simply ignoring the call because your allowed mechanicly can cause confision and some conflict, and does slightly take away from the RP acpect of combat sitations.

of course, NPCs may not use this call because it may not be apperent. (damage is not visable, or what ever.)

I think if you call resist, parry and what not, it's just easier. (also, if you just assume the person resisted it, your probably better off too.)

I throw 2 vorpal knock out. I assume when it does nothing, they resisted it or are immune. or have jandium armor, or what ever. it's just easier.
