Re: Suggestions

I just want to note a few things. And I realize it might mean agreeing to disagree on some things. :D We aren't replacing all shops or shops in general with the auction house. The ownership and running of a shop is something a lot of non-combatant aligned characters dream of and look forward to. So ...

Re: Losing interest

Or you know ... doing some of the things discussed in them. I'm not sure one can place all of the onus on one bringing up an issue so many people feel so strongly about, one way or the other. That's inferring that mentioning a problem is a worse crime than the crime itself. If the conversation has r...

Or you know ... junk it. ;) Just because you can't earn money doesn't mean throw it in the street. Maybe we need a littering ordinance with fines.

Re: Losing interest

I'd like to take this moment to remind everyone that opinions on things are amazing. But, please reread the RPP rules. Rule for 1 RPP and all subsequent levels is a basic understanding this isn't a hack and slash. It isn't unless you disagree or unless you don't see value in role playing and charact...

Re: Marriage

It's not a "fear of conflict" - it's knowing that it is a two fold path, both having documentation, but also, people buying into following it. Or at least recognizing that playing a rebel need something to revel against to help define that choice. If anything, it's wanting that conflict to be seen a...

Re: [Feedback Request] Current Armor & Weapons

I'm staying away from comments on combat or weapon code (I've expressed before that's not my field), but ... I will comment there are indeed, more than two healing items in game. There are indeed casts, multiple types of bandages, ointments, etc. However, currently they are largely textile based, so...

Re: Embarrassing

And in short, that's the concern. People want us to start advertising and reaching out to new players, but the rather blasé attitude about retaining them is a bit of a concern. Advertising can get people here, but the community will determine if stay or go. Orc RP has always been more harsh than hum...

I'll take a stab that most of your post is addressed to me, Kory. So ... I'll ask, when lore has been written that wasn't allowed in? A great amount of player written lore has actually made it into game, even if that's not readily apparent. People might have to actually stop long enough to listen to...

When we discuss alienating players, I'll note that some of the comments here that poke in the general direction of "I know what players are best for this game, and you aren't really it ..." is likely not helpful to making people feel welcome. Or determine who is or isn't "epic" - something not every...

Re: Split: 0RPP Evil Humans, a Poll

If there was a big evil Easterling warlord running around in the area who was in the thrall of Sauron, that seems like something that would have gotten a mention somewhere. ;) Also, going back to the whole Easterlings and Harad as the source of all evil in the area, I think does a disservice to our ...

I'm not sure magic missle is exactly what we are looking for though. ;) Nor probably most of the Psionics as we used to have. (Which I think most were removed from this code anyways.)

Re: New Races, Balance, and Lore

Hmm. I think we agree more than we disagree and our sticking point might be a few specifics. For example, no Men show up in the service of Sauron to the Battle of the Five Armies, so I think having them being a 1 RPP race would be a bit much. But also, IMHO, once you introduce human races as a major...

I apologized for the AC on items, Workerdrone. And we are addressing the items and balancing code. So short of offering to quit to appear even more contrite over being temporarily dumb, not sure what else I could say.
