Okay, two things seem obvious to me. the first is Rufus and some
other Imms/imps want changes in the system. The other is that
a lot of people who are just players are concerned that the
mud we call home, enjoy playing, and have a vested interest may
not be able to live up to our expectations as before
Mobs/skills/items/tohit/spells/potions and other things have
changed, and frankly the test period aroused a lot of genuine
concern in some frequent players. I have a small proposal.
I am fairly certain of two things, You are going tomake some
signifigant changes, and a lot of people are goingto react.
what I would like to propose is a group of players who play here often
KNOW how the system works, are able to question maturely, and
have the interest of keeping Legend the best mud online should
be allowed some form of input, forhand knowledege of planned
changes, and be assured that they, their complaints, comments,
and suggestions will be regarded. There are a lot of players who
are here every day, and would not mind looking at, considering, and
reviewing proposed changes. I am not asking for handing us veto
power or anything, just a chance to have input, and try and help.
It would not be hard to find 10 or so ofus capable, and willing to
(I think it would alsoshow that the staff here does care for
our opinion some, and that it would contribute to a lot less
complaining, boards and on channels, if we KNEW someone listened

So, sort of like a Mortal Council which has a chance to voice its opinions
on immortal matters, eh?
Some immorts might say, 'If you want input into such things you should
try to immort.' Unfortunately, there seems to be a measure of distrust
between immortals and mortals these days that is growing. For whatever
reason once a player crosses the line they lose some amount of their
respect from mortals. So, perhaps a mortal council would be a good idea
at this point. But who would get to belong, and who decides, how?

I think its not hard to figure out who plays, kills mobs, and knows the
system well. Most of us arent that popular who arent imms with imms,
but we still should have some voice.

Hmmmm, I never had any respect as a mortal, yet I think that my rapor
with the morts is pretty good. I don't know if people think that I'm
some high-falutin' snob or not. I personally think that anyone can bring
anything to me at any time. If you think that I am a snob, please let me
know. Then at least I can start acting like it!

Even though I'm not an immort (and I hope nobody thinks I am),
I'd be interested in joining a "mort council" or whatever you
want to call it. I've been around for a while and know the mud
very well (don't whois me or you'll get a lot of spam). And
ParticleMan, put some clothes on!

Actually, there is a forum in which to be heard and to hear from imms about
propose changes in the code and areas -- a) this board, and b) the web
discussion page. In these, ALL players can be heard and heard from, rather
than just a select few. In addition, if you all are interested, PR can run
more real time forums on specific issues, such as has been already done fo
underwater code changes (charity) and shadowlands (rufus). We're also all
to mail, both email and mud mail
and work hard to get upcoming changes into the LT (the upcoming skill tree
are an excellent example of that)
