Do wards have an effect if on worn rings, or is that just another way of learning them?
At the moment, it is just a way of learning them.
I intend to make worn rings have a chance of scaring opponents in melee, and to definitely scare opponents when used with unarmed combat.
So, the un-learnable ward that can sometimes appear on rings...?
Oh, you can scare monsters by (a)pplying a ring with a ward they are vulnerable to on it. So you can scare Mind Flayers etc by applying a ring with a Cerulean Sign on it at them. At the moment there is no special effect for just wearing the ring, though.
