I just think whoever game up with Jesters in their original iteration was smoking way too much weed
the class was (literally) designed to pay tribute to Insane Clown Posse and most of the early guildhelp files were copied from the Principia, ad verbatim.clanhelp juggalos if you don't believe me.
@Moonfox: The problem is that none of it is entertaining; it's all camp and puns and crass sight gags. I appreciate the few jesters who do satire and do it right despite this, because they're playing the royal fool at his best. It's clever and biting and it has the sting of truth, and it's actually working toward a goal that isn't LOL GIRAFFES SO RANDOM XD.Nice motto, by the way:His motto: 'I didn't choose the hug life... the hug life chose me!'
Jesters are a medieval thing, just like knights bards and the rest of Achaea.
I've heard plenty of "wah, wah, flavor text, wah" but Jester has a zesty flavor and laugh-in-your-face-ed-ness that keeps Achaea from being Greyfaced. The primary reason I never considered joining the CIJ is because they put rules on Jesters too, and those rules suppress all the grand utility of the class and the fun side.
Yes there are limits, and even being foolish should be done with appropriate grace, but summary: I wouldn't change a damn thing about the roleplay side of jesters.
I wouldn't be opposed to somehow having a subclass of dark jester with altered pranks flavor text so that Mhaldorians don't get upset tummies: black balloons, jerk-in-the-box, mhunskin peels, dragonflybombs, bitchpowder...
Re: Greyfaces, notice how You damned kids with your walkmans and your Donnie Osmond.
@Delphinus That's fair, but I think some of the things you're portraying as negative are the meat and potatoes that CiJ members love. I don't think the CiJ would appreciate if Quackers was suddenly replaced with Ruphio the Lion-Tamer. Jesters don't even use whips.Personally I feel like most of your concerns would be addressed by bringing Eris back.
