More on 100 mil xp
what exactly is there left to do after the 100 mil xp? nope, nothing. and imagine the monotony of all those xp runs that will take to get there.
a council of super chars will help, but making requests to imms doesn't guarantee a fulfillment of those requests. Especially when it comes to implementing features that might be tough to code into a MUD.
What would be nice would be a council that implements a sort of player code of ethics and stuff. Something like a clan but with a higher power enforced by imms? bah. i'm beginning to think i'm babbling.
omigosh. i AM babbling.
oh well. enough then.
For example, say a council was formed of a group of players who had reached 100 mill xp and were therefore known to be long-term players who are undoubtedly knowledgeable about the game and presumably would have the best interests of the game at heart.
If they met and advanced the suggestion that everyone should be able to string their own equipment, we would likely politely turn down that request. If, however, they met and asked for somehting like, say, a roll of bandages weighing one kg so you could peel off bandages and not have to carry 10 million at once, then, hmmm, we might listen and implement it, especially if it came from such a group.
My thoughts on such a council were not that it necessarily be a forum for asking for stuff from the immortal (the idea so many people jumped on), but rather that the players could use it to improve things on the mud themselves, without immort intervention or with limited help when necessary. Actions such as organization of RP events, newbie outreach programs, suggestions on ways to improve the mud would be more in the line of what I was thinking. If such a council came to me and wanted some minor imm help with a RP plot, I would be much more likely to spend my limited time helping than if it was an individual.
And, of course, if the council asked for something, like, say, for instance, titles for its members, I'd be willing to bet it would be considered much more readily than a suggestion posted to this board by a single player.
whatever, i'm sick of arguing for things. I'll just wait for skilltrees i spose.
