Truth is, regardless of what happens to pk, i've spent way
too much time here to say "i'll perma all my chars and go!"
Pkok, for me, just made me go look at other alternatives
that involve quite a bit more resources than zMUD, but
it's not too bad. I still log on every now and then (prolly
still about once every week or two) for 30 minutes or
But this isn't a game that is moving on, for me. There's
not enough incentive to create a new char, nor enough to
try re-eq'ing an old one. I don't have to be as competitive
as I had been before; heck, i duel without any of my
aliases, paths, triggers... and wits, it seems. There's
no point crashing people to Aengus, setting up traps or
anything since all that does is shorten the hard-to-get
duel. So i end up choosing to trade blows like silly
folk staying in one room, one era...
I'm sure there are still players around who simply love
being able to form groups to go to SL or PD for the gazillionth
time, knowing exactly what to do when and what kind of chars
you need for that group, leading it over and over and over
until you get another whois. It's comfortable being in
those areas and knowing that nothing out of the ordinary
will happen. I mean, a hound of cullan won't aim up and
snipe you, and blackbeard won't run around and crash
you into other captains.
Maybe it's that i'm a bit weird, but i personally enjoyed
ooc-rivalry (well... rivalry is sorta euphemistic, i guess)
and knowing that every attitude i gave would generate some
future conflict, even if i didn't foresee it.
Oh hell, I don't know what i'm babbling about. PKOK is
fine with me now that i can't spend as much time playing
and paying attention to the happenings of the mud.
Mmm... just curious, Dune, Mac... what are you guys doing
nowadays anyway? Miss ya.

This's Mac, I archived and got stuck into Duris again..
It may be harsh, you get beat down by others constantly
but I still prefer it to MUDs without pkill. -poke Legend-

-comf Mac- Poor little guy, you have managed to not hear
about pkok? If you read the posts on various boards, and type
"help pkill" and/or "help pkok", you will learn a little about
pk on legend.
Good luck with it.

argh, got cut off, don't feel like writing the whole thing, i'll just
PKOK now is like diet coke. It may be healthier for some, but for
those of us fit, it's simply an alternative that tastes worse.

ok, attempting to help pkok, I'm going accpet alll, and
will probably heal pk'ers during fights, if I get jumped too much, I don't
really care, If I get multi'd and looted, I'll stop
