-seriously losing it,
There are obviously problems that no knows how to fix.

It's easy to forget you can't make a difference huh.

I think saying "There are obviously problems that nobody WANTS
to fix" would be more accurate.

There are problems, I want to fix them, I have a rough idea as to how to
I don't have time to fix them.

Why don't you just apply to immort?

I suppose I could apply and probably help out a lot. I have some
ideas and time to spend on it. I dont want it to take away the magic
Somehow, I think Im too active a pkiller to have access to all that
information. Can you guys imagine me pkilling with information on
every factor that goes into the percent chance to parachoke or
other fight skills? The exact chance to wfw given all the variables
that go into the equation? I would feel too guilty to attack anyone
with all that info!
I have a good idea of the way a lot of stuff works.. but only from
what I see. If I had access to the code, I think my psychotic
compulsive perfection disability would drive me mad. Im already
quite mad as a lot of you already correctly think.
Also, I would hate for someone to tell me "You beat me cause you
could look at the code and just make the perfect character." Or
even better "Poetry beat me cause she checked my playerfile
and saw that I had no this.. or that or whatever". And how would
it look to newbies to have a pyscho imm alt that talks to herself
and attacks her best friends?
I also have fear that, in my hands, the mud would become so balanced
that it gets boring. Its not easy to balance things and keep them alive
at the same time. The complexity is required in a way, so that players
like me cant figure out simple fight equations and make perfect
characters. That was the problem with dex mud. (although I do
miss some aspects of dex mud.. longer fights, 2.stun)
In other words, becoming a coding immortal here sounds interesting,
but would make it hard and no fun to play this game the way I like to.
Rufus does fine too, he just doesnt seem to have the time
to test stuff all day and sometimes things dont get changed quickly
and we have to wait. I would rather make "observations" and let HIM
make the changes. I spend a lot of time observing and being "out in
the field" taking notes. He seems respective of people like me and
Darkheart (and Splat.. sometimes) that have some first hand xp with
the system and its downfalls and pluses. That relationship works for
I dont want the code anywhere near me! Understand?
Getting mad about the code is also part of the fun, hehe. I wouldnt want
to lose that.

Not to mention, it still says this in the immort code of conduct:
"...immortals' morts may not engage in
playerkilling or stealing without extremely clear in-context
reasons that are clearly evident to the victim. If the victim
is not aware of the reason, then the immortal is at fault.
Yes, this limits the scope of an immorts' actions as a mort,
but all immortals MUST serve as an example of ideal
player behavior, or the credibility of all immortals is

Speaking of politeness, I personally feels
that if a player answers one of your questions on chat
It's only polite to say a simple thanks even though
that person might just be a newbie, some of the players
here simply look down on others who are lowlvl,doesnt have tons
of whoises or have the title, the newbie, I myself
never help "said person" again no matter which form I'm
in if he's rude to others
well. just my opinion
