I've been tossing around an idea that I'm hoping for feedback on.
What would you guys think about declaring a weekly day and time
when people interested in learning more about PK could meet up
with people interested in teaching others about PK? We could
make it a mix of talking/live demos/small groups practicing,
we could hold it on the mud or on a testmud, we could just declare
it as the time to pull out your AA chars and sharpen your steel....
Some of you have offered to teach others at various times, perhaps
this could pool those resources. Setting aside a particular time
might pull people into trying it, enjoying it, and spread to
more nights of the week, or all nights of the week.
Please add your thoughts!

Sure, seems an interesting idea. But if offered on normal mud not sure how
I could RP it, unless you need somebody to slaughter newbies

And by the way I think it should be on regular mud. Testmud doesn't
make it thrilling enough IMHO.

I think it's a great idea. I have a lot to learn about pk and would
definitely try to attend something like this.
Thursday, August 01 2002, 10:08PM
I love the idea, actually. I'd be there, assuming I'm
available at the time. (to learn, god knows I should
never be teaching such I thing) Were you thinking like
'Sniper Night' or '3c Con Night' Or just general stuffs? At any
rate, I'm in.

It might work, worth a shot I guess. If it doesn't, we're no worse off
than before. But remember, just because you know how to PK, doesn't
mean yer goin' to PK. I don't mind teaching people, I'm not the best
or anything, but I do well enough.

if i'm here when it happens, i would probably join in :P
i dont really set aside times to play tho

haha, if morph is a teacher, everyone will suck more. Do it!
Friday, August 02 2002, 10:11PM
Yeah Be'lal, run yer mouth, blah blah blah blah, you never fought me
far as I can remember. But yer entitled to an opinion, but of course
as always, doesn't mean yer right. I may not be good with Morph, but
im good enough with my other alts

I don't think the idea was to find 'thrills' so much as to teach others
how to PK. Hopefully, doing so would encourage them to PK more on the
Garet, you had a post on the welcome board made by one character, signed
by a second and in response for a third. Again, you talk about your alts
here. I really don't care to know who they are, so please keep them to

We all have our good chars... and our bad chars..

If im here at the right time and such I would probably join in
to some degree, im barely what you'd call an active PKer these
days but I'd try show these whipper snappers a thing or two.

It is high time we had something going on with pkill
May I suggest that we start having miny tournaments, perhaps
king of the hill style at the same time. If it is going to be
a weekly thing, then for that week, you could have the crowned
king of the hill, maybe even setup a pretitle "king of the Hill"
that the winner each week could have so he could taunt the rest
of the pkillers with it.
A weekly tournament would perhaps living up pkill a little here,
but that is just imho.

I don't care what you do and don't wanna know Cyrnon, don't read my
posts, as they are my alts, I reserve the right to put them wherever
I darn well please, so like I said, do us all a favor, don't read my
posts, get off my back, and go away

That garet guy is so polite, I vote him for president!

Providing the board doesn't eat this ...
I checked the stats for July -- looks like no particular day is
better or worse than any other day in terms of pk folks being
around. Any favorite days of the week? I'm free as follows...
Sunday 4-11pm, Wednesday 7pm-11pm, Friday 7pm-11pm, Saturday noon-11pm.

We talkin teachin people by ripping out thier hearts or by talking to
them in a nice little ooc room? And in either case I will offer my
instructions on how to smell up a room, and the best ways to toss fecal
matter at people without getting caught in brown splash damage...
Oh and the two most important things a pkiller can know, well three
how and where to run, who to suck up to and how to tell "In my day, in
old pk we had blah blah blah etc..." stories properly.

I was thinking a little chatter, a little try-it-out kinda thing.
Like, one person decides they're going to show some tricks to fighting
against snipers, and another person talks about how to be a sniper.
Then the people who listened to the two instructors try out the techniques
and ideas that they just heard.
I wasn't thinking about it as a night of random pk action, but it seems
like after the event, there are bound to be a lot of pkers around, so
it might well be a hot time after the show and tell is over.

This is not a way to stimulate pk imo. This is like making a damn
tournament without prizes, There is no thrill in this to me, all duals
Saturday, August 10 2002, 02:05AM
So do what ima do provided I get my stupid mage outta hock, come in
invis listen to the dopey talking, then firestorm the entire room into
crispy fried pk chicken.
Saturday, August 10 2002, 02:42AM
I think that this is a great idea, considering I prefer dying to
winning because I get better feedback that way. Seems like this way
i need to do a lot less dying to get the info I want. I would definitely
try to get on for this to learn more about PKing. nice idea.

in response to Garet "the x-man" Jax's remarks on his
alts and how we should just ignore his posts, would it
be possible for said person to keep me posted on just which
char's posts not to read? I was thinking a weekly mudmail
on new chars I should automagically ignore or the likes
perhaps I'm not the only one and we could have a garets alts
session at the weekly Q&A, or use a board or such?

I withdraw my previous statements about a public board, as
we are supposed to ignore posts by these alts, how would be
be able to read them, we need the newsletter so to speak.
