I have never lifted a finger to improve any script... ever, even if
 I had I would not ever find it appropriate to publicy barrade a clan
for making a change (one as stated before was made years ago).

If having to read your trash notes is what we have to put up with
to get "improvements" on S&D then please kindly stop updating it :)

Peace and love, and all that jazz.

Not sure this would benefit anyone anyone as much as Retri, but would
be nice if a clan's abbreviated name could be used for who swho
drank yrank mrank etc. just the same as the clans full name.

would be nice to drank 1 retri etc. instead of spelling out the
spo :can now quest
whole thing all the time. I'm sure other clans could benefit too
just not as familiar with others short names as our own.

Just an idea!

Reply to: Note 40639 posted by KoopaTroopa

I have not paid any attention to this thread at all, but I'd like to offer
a scenario I've run into with OPK on/off as some insight.

I have zero interest typically with OPK while actively pupping, but I have
it on all the time while leveling. However I sometimes forget to remove it
right away, or even have someone sitting waiting for me to hit 200 so they
can jump me. In this situation I would absolutely be reminded about how
I forgot to "Opk off" and go ahead and do that.

Obviously I can't speak for others who have done that, as I know for a fact
that people want the rewards but really have zero interest in actually being
OPK for any other reason than the free xp and qp.

Subject pretty much says it all, I know and appreciate the idea of cleaning

don't really want to read through every line of gossip to see if someone
is talking about sports and often keeps the channel off due to spam
it would be nice to have a sports channel again. Even if not used often.

Wondering how this system works on items when you loot more than one item
from a mob, I.E. I kill the mob for map of the world and possessed aura
in Glamdursil, 200 or so attempts has gotten me 5-10 Polished or better
portals, but 0 auras. Just kind of doesn't seem like its the same odds
for the second or third items looted as it is the first.

I have actually thought this to be true a few times (not just since enhanced

it would buy some time.

It is a well known fact that evading pk is far too easy, OPK is a great
attempt to give pking a boost, but as it is everyone gets perks, but its
inevitably still very easy to bail out, so its little risk currently for
a pretty high reward IMO

It is my opinion, that if you flag yourself as OPK, then you accept the risk
of openly being targeted, anytime. anywhere...

I think that if you flag yourself OPK that as soon as you're in combat
with another player, no form of evasion should be allowed, no flee,
no retreat, no recall etc. etc.

The only addendum I would make is that to keep from making
a gang bang situation happening that no one else can engage
in pk with either player.

I don't know what the cost should be, but there should be a way to anonymously
call wars from anywhere in the mud, except maybe prison rooms..

maybe 1tp?

Currently most player called wars end up with either no combatants because
typically speaking the person calling the war is most likely to win it
or it gets a few extremely low level newbies to join.

Personally I'd rather not waste 500k on a war that doesn't get a single
other participant, and I don't care about war kills enough to enjoy
slapping a newbie once to pad my stats and get a war win, I'd rather
call a war anonymously and lose than have it that way.

Your idea is actually kind of cool, could just revamp setwanted to make that
happen, but you don't actually lose exp other than getting half exp during
pk grace period, which can be reduced by clearing grace

I do like the idea of a hightened rewards system for it too.

Depending on how bad you want someone killed for you, pony up 500qp for the
kill, person who kills gets 75% and the other 25% goes into a sink, cant be
killed by clannies or allies

really the amount spent on this could be endless, as long as someone was
willing to pony up the dough

Obvious qp transfers etc would be a concern, but also be pretty obvious
it was happening too if a qsitter was paying 10k qp for a kill then
immediately logged out and into a t9 char to kill the person..

not a bad idea if I say so my self

New grouping idea
Note #28362
posted on Ideas
Wednesday, January 22, 2014 @ 19:26
Have been considering this thought it was worth throwing out there
I think there should be more motivation to grouping, currently there
are draggers and dragees, and depending on the tier of each
sometimes grouping in this manner can slow the dragger down and be inconvenient
and thus convince the dragger to stop grouping as often unless its equally
as beneficial.

My proposal is a rough idea at best and rather than replacing the current
grouping situation, this might be a cool alternative.

Currently a big problem I've noticed with grouping is that while grouped
its pretty temporary, and usally caused by someone outleveling the other

however with my idea, you might have a semi-perma groupie or small handful
of groupies that you group with all the time, to give a small bit of
motivation to stay levelign with the same people regularly, if the two
have differing tnl an average of the two peoples tnl would be applied to
both, I think capping this would clearly be important otherwise t9's would
group with t0's constantly etc.

Before anyone stops reading and replies here, hear me out.

If a person with 10k tnl and a person with 5k tnl group, the average
would be 7.5k tnl each, ultimately the same exp per level would be gained
but rather than one of the two gaining 2 levels to the other persons 1
they could level up at similar rates of speed and thus allowing them
to group together for longer periods of time and more consistantly.

I think a 5k tnl gap would be a good place to start, but thought this
was an interesting idea and would make leveling seem a bit less like a
grind and more fun still. 

Like I said just a rough idea, but thought it was worth a mention

gtell [Repop] loqui @@ 15:25:48
I was grouped in Adaldar with someoen who was Elf race last night. I under
stand that the trolls don't like elves and when they walk into the
room they're going to be attacked. and vice versa. However I noticed that
there seem to be 2 things off here. Being a paladin I was charing rooms
and the trolls would still aggro my groupie, even though I charged into
the room they'd all aim to him and say the same 'says' line as if my groupie
walked into the room solo. I feel like this could be a bug if not it
probably should be changed either way.

The second thing is, after having charged a room without my groupie, then
my groupie dooring in afterwards after restocking, the trolls did not bother
him. I did not test him dooring into a room with them without me engaged
with the room but I feel like it'd probably have the same turnout via doorway
