Blackmojo says, 'you got dick head like serrik making people not want to pkill'
Huma nods solemnly.
Freaky says, 'Im not sure how to fix pK, I tried coming up with a big change, most people didn't like it'
Freaky says, 'I truely think pk needs a radical change'
Huma nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'its tough'
Huma says, 'whats a radical change?'
Salvatore says to Freaky, 'it sure needs something..'
Freaky says, 'no idea, if I had that answer, Id be the king of PK'

Freaky says, 'not radical enough I don't think'
Huma chuckles politely.
Xuvenia says, 'but those are my big ones'
Salvatore says, 'ive been asking for pk clans to go back to what clans were before.. you had to get them approved etc'
Xuvenia says, 'doesn't need to be hugely radical, a few small tweaks could he.lp'
Huma says, 'well we already have the problem of professional killers, turning off anndeath will only encourage the professional killers'

Huma giggles.
Huma nods his agreement with Freaky.
Salvatore says to Freaky, 'i try to stick with something ive always played..'
Huma says, 'well you just do that because you dont have more people around to keep you interested'
Freaky says, 'if I win 80% of my fights on a build, I get disinterested'
Huma nods his agreement with Freaky.
Salvatore says to Freaky, 'its not that that bothers me.. its the fact jumpings dont happen.'
Freaky says, 'I want a war, a thunderous stick it up your arse, lets get the bloody bastards war'
Salvatore says, 'i wouldnt win 90% of my fights if players actually jumped me'
Mertjai ponders a ransom note from Mertjai's existence.

Salvatore nods solemnly.
Freaky nods his agreement with Huma.
Huma says, 'Freaky would jump Sal and vice versa'
Huma says, 'but lalalaI'manubcakePK'er'
Huma says, 'he wont'
Salvatore says, 'and the sad thing is.. you cant really make a clan without throwing in a lot of experienced players in'
Freaky nods his agreement with Salvatore.
Salvatore says, 'then that clan becomes pretty much the clan.. and nobody can compete with it'
Huma says, 'final fantasy 13 looks pretty sweet'
Mertjai sits down on a chair.
Freaky says, 'last jump I had fun with, I jumped sal in SL on the bridges, before that, it was a good 2 months before that'
Salvatore says, 'why i have stayed rogue now.. one of the many reasons....'

Freaky says, 'anyway, personal fights aside'
Salvatore says, 'why i picked this weapon, its funny.. tho it does hurt my hitroll and ac'

Freaky says, 'I just can't figure out a fix'
Salvatore says, 'i want group wars!'
Xuvenia says, 'uh brb'
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'I can make a group war game'
Salvatore says, 'i want to be jumped by a 4 man!'
Huma says, 'to drum up interest?'
Salvatore says, 'i want to jump sl more.. without ppl crying!'
Freaky says, 'not going to happen'
Huma says, 'naw that wont happen'
Salvatore says, 'i jumped kastina in my rp defense.. and ppl got upset =p'
Huma says, 'best I can do is offer a gang war tournament maybe'
Huma says, 'would that be OK be people?'
Salvatore says, 'it wont do anything.. we need more actives..'
Salvatore says, 'we need more ppl wanting to try out pk..'
Salvatore says, 'we need ppl to trust some of us to teach them..'
Freaky says, 'you know what would be the only true way to make a start on fixing pk on legend, and you wont like it but I truely think its the only way, is to seperate it completely from the regular mud'
Salvatore nods solemnly.
Huma says, 'we arent gonna run two muds'
Huma says, 'thats not the point, it'll never happen'
Salvatore says, 'it wont happen..'
Huma says, 'its not even the point of why we're here' 
Salvatore nods solemnly.
Freaky says, 'I think trying to keep all your eggs in one basket is the biggest problems with legend'
Freaky says, 'I know, I just said that'
Blackmojo says, 'any pkiller now have been pkilling for 7+ years and anyone new is gonna get an ass kicking'
Freaky says, 'it won't happen so it will remain this way im afraid'
Salvatore says, 'what i miss, and im sorry but this should be in game and used... is zip strings looting'
Huma says, 'hey AFK one moment'
Salvatore says, 'problem is not everyone has steal..'
Samule waves happily.
Blackmojo nods his agreement with Salvatore.
Xuvenia says, 'why steal zips when you can steal their real eq :P'
Huma says, 'thats not the problem though =P'
Freaky says, 'no one steals :P'
Salvatore says to Xuvenia, 'i get flack for stealing vials =p'
Xuvenia points at Freaky.
Huma says, 'steal is not the cureall'
Xuvenia laughs at Freaky.
Salvatore says, 'think im going to steal an item??'
Salvatore says, 'thats suicide'
Mertjai ponders Salvatore's stolen wooden leg's existence.
Salvatore says, 'and these dumb ass grudges have to go..'
Salvatore peers at Blackmojo, looking him up and down.
Salvatore says, 'if someone makes an alt.. and you find out who they are.. then begin to multi them... i mean jesus..'
Blackmojo says, 'you think i start this shit ?'
Freaky says, 'well I think Ill go read a little before ultimate fighting comes on'
Salvatore grins evilly at Freaky... Wonder what he's thinking... 
Blackmojo says, 'i multy him cuz he wolf packed me'
Salvatore rolls his eyes heavenward.
Blackmojo says, 'i didnt know who he was tell well after that'
Salvatore says, 'you jumped a lowbie, who was grouped with another pke lowbie..'
Freaky says, 'you know what, I should log on here and just start multiing everyone, go nutzo'
Salvatore says, 'that is not wolf pack..'
Salvatore says, 'let me show you what a wolf pack is...'
Freaky says, 'start taking eq and freaking out completely'
Salvatore says to Freaky, 'grab about 3 friends and meet me and mojo outside.'
Salvatore says, 'we can then show him a true wolf pack'
Huma giggles.
Huma says, 'if you do that it'll be the end of PK'
Freaky says, 'I know'
Huma says, 'well PK is already kinda done atm'
Salvatore says, 'oh, we would need a waller also.. the old walls.. so he cant flee'
Freaky nods solemnly.
Freaky nods his agreement with Salvatore.
Salvatore rolls his eyes heavenward.
Huma says, 'but going on a multi parade'
Salvatore says, 'the new generation of pkers, and i dont mean to be rude to you mojo... are wussies'
Huma says, 'will make you the king of a lonely castle'
Blackmojo says, 'i havent been active for  2 weeks and dont plan  being active again'
Freaky nods his agreement with Huma.
Salvatore nods his agreement with Huma.
Huma flops about helplessly.
Salvatore says, 'pk today is now.. if you jump me low you are a thug ass..'
Freaky nods his agreement with Salvatore.
Huma says, 'heh theres no good way to jump anyone anymore'
Salvatore says, 'i want to be jumped low!'
Blackmojo says, 'new generation ?'
Salvatore says, 'i want to be jumped on runs!'
Salvatore says, 'i want to be packed!!'
Blackmojo says, 'ive been pkilling for 7 dam years'
Huma chuckles politely.
Huma says, 'any questions?'
Salvatore says to Blackmojo, 'then you should know better man...'
Huma says, 'or are we just gonna talk why PK is broken'
Freaky says, 'my first pk experience, I had been playing edric for maybe, 15 days on this mud, level 50 and Sandra and a bunch of old school pkillers were having it out, coven and anti paladins I think'
Salvatore says, 'we need a pk meeting =p'
Huma says, 'I'll give ya a couple minutes to ask a question then I'm pullin the plug'
Freaky says, 'and I walked in and jumped a coven!'
Huma says, 'I lied'
Huma says, 'any questions?'
Salvatore raises his hand.
Huma says, 'yes Sal?'
Freaky says, 'omg, the entire mud blew up, I had 6 sisters running after me all over the place and the anti paladins freaking out'
Salvatore says to Huma, 'pk meetings possible to start up sometime again?'
Salvatore nods his agreement with Freaky.
Huma says, 'as far as I know... this right now IS a pk meeting :)'
Huma laughs.
Blackmojo says, 'that clan wars kinda sparked it but it died off fast'
Salvatore says to Freaky, 'i remember when I jumped a merc the first time.. it wasnt pretty.'
Bananana sits down on a jeweled throne.
Huma says, 'ok this is over'
Freaky says, 'I acctually lived that day, but got my butt womped on later by ruby for interferance' 
Kryptonite thuds as Huma attempts to bounce it - what a klutz.
