#1565 closed bug (fixed (in v4))

Use affixes in artifact names

Reported by: magnate Owned by: magnate
Milestone: v4 Keywords: items affixes


The introduction of affixes has led to changes to base items to remove references to make, material or quality. This means that the following artifacts stick out, because they currently use base items that no longer exist:

  • Razorback
  • Bladeturner
  • Mediator
  • Soulkeeper
  • Celeborn
  • Belegennon
  • Deathwreaker
  • Doomcaller
  • Gondor
  • Numenor
  • Luthien
  • Tuor
  • Stormwalker

We could use different a different base item for Stormwalker without anybody really noticing, but the others really need to keep their flavourful item names. This means making sure that the affix is included in the artifact name.

This could also be used as a mechanism for generating artifacts via affixes (like themes), but that's a separate piece of work. For now let's just make sure they're not obviously identifiable across the dungeon, and have the right names when they're known.

Ok, I am inclined to do this simply, by adding a single ego_item_type affix member to the artifact_type struct, on the assumption that artifacts are only ever going to use one affix in their names. This affix will only be used for adjusting the artifact's name string - it won't actually be applied to the item, so the numbers in artifact.txt will remain authoritative.
