another idea

Ok, Ive been playing here since 1993, and this post isnt really about pk or the like, but possibly about improving the mud, cause im bored. The idea relates kinda to "old style" eq and the lack of ambition to do sl/pd and the other hard areas that supposedly reward the larger groups. It also relates to variable eq as well, and it goes a little something like this: For the harder areas, and maybe the easier areas as well, I think we should have various eq across the board. The various eq should contain unique items, that change with each pop or reboot. So the keeper in dis wouldn't have the same two rings every freakin time you kill him and it would make going to dis a lot funner, or for that matter anywhere to see if you can find something more unique. And let me explain a little about unique, trash the 5 stat standard, or the 3 stat 4 dam/hit standard and all the standards, throw them outta the window. Make the tougher stuff rewarding, that way old eq that all of us have tons of not as important, and maybe this can change pk/ok as well, who knows. Also, what about even throwing in colored items as bounty too? It seems stupid to have to know trivia or run around for flags or other menial tasks to get a little color, go ahead and make items that have color. I think the variable thing would work, it has been implemented somewhat, but lets expand it, lets have nice eq on tough mobs, heck throw some nice eq on a squire, and easy mobs so newbies can have something worth a crap instead of having to buy it on auction or getting their buddy to get it. It would make some of the old timers wanna play again without feeling that if you go to point a you got item a...it becomes boring that way, maybe not quick, but if you play long enough it does, it would just add a little more excitement and would give me a reason to go play some. Ive said enough... Razzzzzzzzz+--

From: Elisa Monday, July 31, 11:21PM I like the idea of random items to make the mud more exciting. But you know, there IS already a color-item you don't need trivia or flag-hunting abilities to get. For those of you who are bored, from pk losing it's luster for you, or because you know the mud well and can predict everything, try to rp a little more. I guarantee, you cannot predict how other's will react to you

From: Arte Monday, July 31, 11:57PM I don't even know why I'm bothering to post. I've left legend for 11 months now and haven't spent any significant time back on the mud since then. But from the last few posts, I can see that the players absolute LOVE legend as I still do. They are being so vocal because Legend wasn't and still isn't 'just' a game. I've seen ideas posted, I've seen requests for imm response, I've seen suggestions; every post reflects how much Legend means to this community. The bottom line is we don't want to lose that special feeling when playing. This community cares. Maybe it's already been done, but a response from an immortal, even if it is only his or her personal opinion, would mean a lot. As for the community not caring about losing players, I suggest everyone reevaluate the situation. No matter how 'evil' a person was, that person helped to make things more interesting. The things I still remember aren't the SL runs, or the Hell runs, or any runs or quests. It was getting my ass kicked by Augustus, killing besides Agyar and Keyzer, getting beat by Leatherface and Moe, and numerous otherfights. Now before you label me as a hardcore pkiller, I can tell you that I switch between rp and pkill regularly. I submitted at least a dozen articles to the LT somtimes on a bimonthly basis. I just hate to see players so disappointed in a community that they came to love so much. As you can see, I still care enough to bother to post even even after leaving for so long. This community wants to thrive. There has to be a way for it to do so.

From: Christopher Tuesday, August 01, 10:13AM in my opinion.. every MUD I've been to where the color was placed on items by immortals.. Let me just say.. I have color turned off on those muds. and Arte.. it was Mo, not Moe
