Pkok can be duneok as long as it allows for some of the thrill
to remain. I have some ideas on how this could happen, and
make EVERYONE happy, hopefully.. not just me.
There should be 3 options for pk... pkOFF, pkokSOME, and pkokALL
There should be some cost to being selectivly pk (pkokSOME)..
that is, pkok to some, but not all. This cost is avoidable if
the player choose pkOFF... or pkallON. The transition from one
option to another should be costly, costing maybe a quarter the
the xp the player ever got up to a max of 3 million. All players
start with pkOFF. You get one transition to one of the other 2
options.. pkokALL, or pkokSOME for free. If you dont like
your choice, you can switch back an xp _cost_.
Here is what this accomplishes:
1. It keeps players from being pkOFF for most the time, and then
switching randomly when the mood hits.
2. It would give an "out" for players that choose the pkall option,
and hated it. Or an out for players that choose the pkselective
option, and dont like its cost. No more people trying to get
xp while getting decimated by stalkers. You change to pkOFF,
and then you make the xp after.. and not nearly as much.
3. It makes selective pkill an "option" that costs.. its a
luxury, the ability to pick and choose who you fight. I really
see a danger in letting this option be used freely...
As far as the cost of pkokSOME, Im not sure what it could
be. Im pretty sure that imms would NOT agree to damage and hitroll
disadvantages. Maybe access to certain mobs that tf, praise
etc.. or special areas that regen mana faster... or hps. Something
to make the danger of a jump, worth it.
I would like to get at least some partial support for this idea
from the imms before I really start brainstorming on this "cost"
factor. I hope you like this idea as much as I do!
I understand that something must be done to make happy the
majority of players that dislike being "stuck" in pkill, and
the players that want to pkill occasionally through RP. I
really think that this system solves both of these problems,
while maintaining the thrill factor for those that dont
want to see it die.
I expect more pkillers than ever underthis system!
People would be willing to try it without signing their
lives away for 50 million xp.. etc... People will be able to
occasionally pkill at some acceptable cost.. etc... and people
would still be able to rp evil characters that jump others.
Clans like the Mercenarys will still get to RP hired killers,
clans like the Knights could still save people from evil types,
and evil clans can still terrorize legend. And everyone has an
out that doesnt cost too much if they really hate what
option they chose.
Just some ideas to keep this game fun for all, not just most.

I agree with Dune on all of his ideas. It allows old pkillers to get
out of pkill (at an adequate cost for such a benefit), and in general
it makes everyone happy. He makes it so you can change your mind, but
it is going to cost you. So we wont have people switching back and forth
on a whim.
Just wanted to give support

I third the motion. Dune, I bow to your wisdom.
