I remember why this timer was put in place. It was cause players like
Arsene would backstab... go ooc, dip an arrow... reload, check time, come
back, shoot... flee kick, go ooc.. check inventory... people were using
OOC for IC purposes.
I support this timer! HOWEVER, its really annoying to have to wait 10
ticks just go read the discussion board.... SO
Can we make a command that cancels the timer for the person that we
are fighting? In other words, DH is my friend, we are dueling... he wins
or I win, whatever... and then we have the option to cancel the others
so that we dont have to sit around.
This way, the timer prevents what it was designed to prevent without
spilling over onto friendly duels and just plain annoying situations.
Is this codeable using the "hatred" flag?
Do people agree that giving the option to cancel the ooc timer if both
parties agree would benefit legend without hindering anyone? BTW, I
havnt thought of the PKOK healing implications. Maybe that messes the

Good idea, though not sure how hard it would be to code, so maybe not :P

if it can be coded, im all for it

I'm all for it, might even want to look into using
it on the pk timer, if it works well.

I shoot down all your PK ideas?
I have no interest or opinion for this one :P

Wouldnt it just be easier to put the discussion board
with the news and welcome board?
most inns have the welcome and news board
just adding the Discussion board to it would be
much easier I think

actually, like all furniture, you can carry one around.
no clue if it'll update itself though, I imagine it will.

The reason this is OOC is because everything on the
discussion board is of an OOC nature.

However, you could buy one and use it IC... meaning
that imms COULD put a discussion board somewhere IC.

the war board is ooc too but that's not of ooc nature :P

sometimes we sacrifice realism for convinience/balance chris

Not sure whether this would work, but how about swapping the pk/ooc timer
i.e. You can go ooc after pk action without waiting, but when you come
back, you have to wait 10 ticks before you can fight again?
Or, since that could be abused to escape fights (but if someone wants to
get away that badly, they'd probably rent anyway), perhaps the 10 ticks
could be split, can't go OOC 5 ticks after a fight, and can't fight 5
ticks after coming IC.
Just a random idea,
(who likes the IC boards idea, would like to be able to read while
regenning without buying a house to put the boards in)

Fight enemy, get long timer, fight friend, have friend ok it for
you to go ooc. Nope, won't work. =)

Mmm, how about simply making it so that any pk fights with somebody
on your befriend list doesn't set the pk timer?
