    One of the features of the Lord British Cloak was that when worn, there was a chance that something would fall from the sky and bonk you on the head. This possible event was a nod to RG's bonk on the head when walking through Origin's front door back in the day.

    Over the years, I've worn my cloak for several rl months, at least, but have never been bonked on the head by a falling object. I'm curious if anyone has had the enviable experience of being bonked on the head by a falling object while wearing the LB cloak?

    That's interesting. I have never heard this.

    I think I have one in a chest I was waiting to sell. I will test this out.


    I "think" there were more than one variety of the LB cloak. Do you have any idea which one it was?

    Could you guys add some clarification to the original OP?

    Ok, I have to ask: are you using the original cloak or did you reshape a crafted cloak using the pattern?

    There was also supposed to be some kind of "effect" when you wore the original obsidian order cloak. Needless to say, in the six years I have worn it, nothing has happened either.

    I have a LB cloak which has a mysterious effect but I have not personally seen it. Some have told me it hides health.

    I have an alt who wears the LB cloak and last time I logged on to visit the Oracle, I got bonked on the old noggin. I thought someone was picking a fight with me in my own POT, but no! It was Fate stepping in and slapping me upside the head! LOL (That was the first time I've ever noticed that happening.)

    I am using the first and original LB cloak. From the other posts, it looks like it actually does the bonk thing, but in a kind of underwhelming way?!

    I think it should draw a target on the ground where you're standing moments before it bonks you (so that you can avoid it if you're paying attention) and it should be an anvil that hits you and the anvil should remain on the ground for a few moments (needed for the full comedic effect).

    It used to bonk me on the head, at least once a gaming session. But I haven't worn it for a while... so I cannot say if it still works.

    It would be 14.6% funnier if it were a headless that immediately jumps up off the ground and runs off.

    I'll have to give it a try. I've had mine in storage for a while now. Time to bring it out and see what it does :D

    It would be funny if there was a mode where you can walk around and have like a meteor shower of objects bonking you ;D
