If you don't want to die fighting a loan warg, Heh heh... a loan warg... Everything costs an arm and a leg in the end... literally. But yea, with orcs it's just a few boxes of general built up crap.

Re: Fleeing: What does it mean and should it be more relevan

Hey I can agree completely to that sentiment. I'm honestly not a proponent of enforcing 'effects' of coded wounds that are generated by a dice roll. Which just goes further to enhance the fact that during combat, whether it's first engaging or during a character's attempt to flee for their lives, th...

Re: Fleeing: What does it mean and should it be more relevan

Hey! Why don't we make the 'Flee' command actually teleport you all the way back to your sphere or residence?! This would be great right? I fled, so I obviously am doing everything I can in order to escape combat (despite my broken legs or gushing bleeders or concussed head or terrible bite wound to...

Re: Losing interest

It comes down to simply accepting that in the world of player vs player combat, the code does equal rp. All the meaningful 'emotes' come after the engagements where the players have time to reflect on the outcomes. Either through mourning the loss of their dead, to celebrating their victories to sac...

True, a lot of that was ego stroking and I don't even remember a full quarter of the full character list that I've played.

Yea, except that forcing people to play a goblin is sort of the 'training period' for people who are interested in experiencing the 'bad guy side' for the first time. Consider it Hazing.

Re: Embarrassing

That was, If I recall Correctly, back when there were actual coded differences in the stats and racial height/weight of an 'Orc' and a 'Goblin'. These days there is just the one race and it's pretty much the player's intention whether they want to be considered a 'goblin' IE a smaller, typically wea...

In my not-so-humble opinion, I think it all basically boils down to there being so -few- players at all. On average these days I can log in and see... five or six people. I notify my sphere and maybe two or three are on. That's half the pbase. And chances are, you've interacted with those people any...
