The reason there are so few people willing to
accept all to accomdate you oldstyle PKers
is due the the actions of past players
Jumping during runs excessivly
excessive multiple kills.
What you all have failed to realize fully is people are scared.
I myself never was able to create a PKer during the Olden days.
Simply put.. I couldn't level a character up high enough to test the water
When PKok went in.. I enabled my favorite character
and I've engaged in a few duels. Usually one sided.
I have accepted people one at a time. People I trust not to
kill the hell out of me. And for me, it works fine.
And yes, I do get jumped. Mat and Craven jump that character
But I have never had to reject anyone because everyone I've added
has continued to behave.
Why should we non-hardcore-diehard players risk our
characters that we've put long hours into..
risk our strings that we've had to play games and pay
through the nose for.
I'll be honest.. in my 2 years on Legend my characters
(all 10+ of them) have personally held less than 10 coupons.
It seems to me that if there are people interested in playing
oldstyle you shouldn't have a problem.
but it seems to me that those of you who want oldstyle PK
simply want to prey on the weak and the inexperienced
who get sucked into it and are stuck PKing everyone.
It's my belief that.. after a time, when the fear of multi's
and the fear of idiots dies down... people will begin
playing oldstyle using accept all.
Quit whining for the Immortals to step in and take
charge of YOUR game boys and girls.
Yes, this is Kaige's MUD
Yes, this is not a democracy
Yes, we provide input, but we do not make decisions
We do influence this place
People complain that they leave because the Immorts
play favorites, or they refuse to do anything on our behalf
Complaining to England didn't get us Taxation with
damn phone.. I lost my train of thought..
anyway.. shut up already
The more you call for Imm Intervention
the more you scare people tentativly testing the water
let it be and see what happens
I, for one, have faith in the players to level the playing field.

Christ, just so you know
in oldsyle pk IT WAS AN IMM ONLY COMMAND, AND YOUR CHOICE
TO BE ENABLED.
If you EVER were enabled in oldstyle, the imm would read off a list
of disclaimers such as you run the risk of getting multid' looted
blah blah blah.
If you don't wanna do it, THEN DON'T, simple as that.

Dont you think that there should be away to accomodate
you AND others? or just you?
Do you think Im asking for looting and multi back and
bad feelings? Im asking for some excitement... not
lukewarm duels, like the ones that newbie pkillers like
you engage in. Legend consists of more than newbies.
My requests are not one-sided. Im looking for a way
to make EVERYONE happy... that is not the case now.
Dont you think that your opinions are one-sided and insensitive

I was refering to Christopher as "you".. not Wyvern, who
snuck in and posted faster than me=p

Just to add my own lil opinion.
I am probably reknowned for 'picking on the weak',
and I did in many cases... I looted, multied, and
had a good time doing it. But good god did I get it
all in return. Have you ever had a group of 8 pkillers
come after you at once Chris?!? Now thats fun!
You havn't the vaguest idea what you speak of. Dune
has an outstanding point, everyone happy, why is this so
hard to comprehend?!?!?

I'll keep this short cause im about to go out to a met game...
The risk is what made it fun, if there was no risk involved in people
lives, then everything would be BORING!!! if you have never taken a
risk in your life, then you must have a pretty dull life.

If risking is so much fun... then why aren't people risking anything
by accepting all?
You're talking to the wrong people.
What you seem to want is pandamount to the immortals
randomly making characters accept all.
As newbie pkers explore their lukewarm duels, I'm sure more and more
will branch out and accept more people.
and I'm Chris, not Christ
While my favorite quote is "I rock" I am not the Lord and Saviour.

Btw, you people haven't realized something
people are out having fun, not sitting online poking
electronic friends with imaginary swords.

Brew, please research a bit before you make a statement?
Look at how many people are online now.

You don't get the point Brew, yes there's risk in accepting all. But if yo
can't "return the favor" of someone jumping you because they just reject
you after 10 minutes of hiding, there's no reason to. And trust
me, I don't know the new areas well, but there are plenty
of places you can hide. And yes, people do accept all, look at
how much "fun" Craven is having.

Ya know, i used to fear people like Dusk and Poetry
but Poetry showed me how fun it is to actually fight instead of hiding
you people should try to experience it but the fact you can limit things i
is might sad. we're trying to accomodate for both views(die harders and
non die-hard people) I may have had disgust for all people
ive pkilled against on this mud if it was out of rage but you know
what I respect every one of you guys: Dusk, Dune, Craven, Nothing
etc..... the list goes on and on, you all are a great bunch
of people that have the same perspectives, anyways ill just go
hibernate in my recesses while this pathetic
excuse of a mud continues to go on with the lame pkok system
(yes im mad)
