Ok, since someone earlier said noone puts up alternatives,
here's a few.. I mentioned 'em in an append to the rumors, but I
want to give them a chance of their own..
1) a pkok 'arena' of sorts.. either an actual arena area to go to,
maybe lik ooc or recalltag (not too familiar with coding so
I hope the idea is getting across right) or make a pkok area flag
so when areas get made, the immortal can decide if they want to
set aside an area to pk in (another thought.. set the area like the
dream sequences scattered throughout the mud) IE joe and bob want
fight.. both of them go to room 'x'. go to sleep, get up in a say 20
room dreamscene, fight, the body of the loser is left in the room
they went to sleep in
2) Make some pkok flag salespeople with timed pkok flags..
IE. Joe and Bob want to fight again.. the go to their friendly
neighborhood 'Death Merchant' buy a 10 minute, non-rentable pk 'token'
fight their fight and when the loser dies, he goes back to his corpse,
gets his stuff and goes on with his life..
If something like this were put into action, give all pkers a limited
time to request amnesty (like what was done way back when ...)
and allow people who are unarchiving the chance to remove the pkflag
when they unarchive..
This would allow those who want to pk without the multi/ looting risk to d
o so, but would still allow the 'pk community' to continue as it is
As disliked as they are multi, looting, and wolfpack are a part of pk
whether you play an evil character or not.. and as much as I
personally dislike all 3, I see the need for the ability of at least
wolfpacking and looting.. Both are tools in pk related rp
(add to above line jumping, as well) and add a certain quality to
the game.. especially in the clans/ clan wars ideas.. If people could
only fight people whothey choose to fun games like some of the fights
that happened when when the OTS were at war with the MOD may have
never happened.. Minister a jumped me..so I proceed to get 3 or
4 guys together, go jump him and poof 2 or 3 ministers appear and
mix it up..
that is what keeps pk excitng.. the unexpected.. everything being a
formalized duel would detract from that for me, and I think several
other in the pk community as well..

I agree with much of what you said.. I think an arena for unclanned
would be better for those not keen on the current pk scene..
Perhaps even make it cost more xp than normal pk death as its
intention would be for casual use and not just as a safe alternative
to regular pk.
Another way would be to just create 2 levels of pk enabled, psycho
and regular :) the former being for those that only exist for pk
and don't mind being jumped, the latter for those that want a
casual duel and for the RP/pkillers, if someone jumps you under
regular pk, you may report them and they'd be upgraded to psycho
or whatever you may want to call it. :)
Pretty much the same as pkok but simpler and less potential for abuse.
That said, being able to pk with ANY of my characters is the most
important thing for me.. I'd support any method where that can be
