Why was this changed? It was great to have a check to see if someone was PK enabled. I guess you would rather us use headbutt/ backstab/bash/elbow/kick/shoot/kill/stun/choke huh? Yeah, great change .... NOT! Zeus

I just use backstab. -shrug- Fright

Why would you want to check if someone was pk-enabled without having any intention of fighting him? I don't think you should be able to check if someone was killable without actually trying to.. the beg command always seemed more like a bug to me. Nice change. Rei Ayanami

Okay, first off, I'm not the one that made this change (although I think it was a bug in the first place)... but I've always found the 'ask' command to be very effective. Not necessarily asking the person themselves, but other people who might know them. In fact, way back when, there was a group of people who made money off this kind of knowledge (who was pkenabled, who was allied with whom, etc) but now that you've all become so open book about your pkenabled chars, it leaves little room for espionage and RP along those lines. -Ruf

Well said Rufus. Always seemed stupid to me that the skill could be used that way. And like you said, this might bring some of the knowledge back into pkill and allow more options to those who are enabled.

Seriously doubt it.

I like the Idea the more I think about it. Now lets stop announcing pk death on info channel. then maybe we can get back to something like what Rufus is talking about - instead of pkillers loitering in safe rooms and clan halls. But that's just My $.02 Conspiracy (Brought to you by the immortals of this great mud)

Um, you can already not have your deaths announced on info if you want.

Sure, but you may be multi'd for it as it is.

Hrm, RP to learn about others charecters, thats so paradoxil or however you spell it. Sir Rictor Belmont

There are still ways of finding out whether someone's enabled which aren't -technically- aggressive. Since I've always found beg to be rude and annoying anyway, and since I've always attacked people who begged from me if they were in range, this doesn't strike me as a huge cha change. -bounce- Bryn!
