Spell Energy is the channeler's link to Aryth and how much he can tap into before getting into his own life force, Taint is exactly that tie a channeler can ahve with Izrador's corruptive influence. I think there could be other choices, btu soem are very speciifc or too wordy (Whisper Awareness / Taint) and it is not that we are happy with what we have now, just lacking a better one, resistance simply doe not tell.

Maybe Attunement / Taint, but then attuned to what is what people would think.

I think I got a good idea now: Hope / Taint, it is simple straight and clean. Wink

Along that line, Spirit may be another one...

I like spirit!

Preferably only that, with no negative thingy showing beside it.

Hey, I like Taint it is a measure of one's attunement to the dark lord and its forcecs. Tongue

I like Hope. If we have to change it, we should go with that.

I'm a fan of what we have now personally.  Both measure the land's effect on you, just whether it is good or bad...

I kinda feel Hope makes a better and more clear opposition to Taint, and it is shorter than Spell Energy. Light and Dark are good but a little too gneric to my taste, Hope and Taint are both very specific in Midnight. Wink

Maybe this topic needs a poll?

At first (before I read this thread) I thought that Spell Energy/Taint was a measure of how much good or bad stuff you did on the forums. Spell energy for posting good materials or fruitfull dicussion and taint for continuing flamewars or spammin.
As it is the function is easy to misunderstand if you're new to this place.

Also, Hope, Light, Good, are all shorter than Spell energy, with a short word you might be able to fit Both Hope and Taint on one line in most resolutions.

Well, if you are new to this palce you won't be changing anyone's pool, and we are going to ahev the site FAq, rules and guidelines posted this weekend, so that will probably take care of any misunderstandings, not only that but admins can change anyone's pools as needed or required.

I felt Hope would be the best choice myself, and more in line with Taint than light or good too. I haven't really tested the current choce with other resolutions, though i did test a lot of things with 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024 that was not one of them. Good point too.

Oh, and welcome back to us. Wink

I must be too dumb these days but I can't figure how to give other posters spell energy or taint points. Are there some nice souls who could help a lonely tired traveler ?

That's because you will only be able to see/ chnage their pools once you get to 25 posts, it will appear right beneath the spel energy / taint area of an user's details. Wink

Thanks a lot for this wise note, Wearer of the Dark Crown, I bow in front of your Endless Knowledge of Untold Things. I will then wait for the years to pass on me and grant enough experience to my dumb goblin head.  Smiley
