Veldrin said:@Nadiel Shallam would do just fine without Evil, Darkness and Chaos, in fact the teachings state that the ideals Shallam stand for would be standing even without the opposite to 'define it'. They are Eternal and are not defined by their opposites, if anything the opposites are defined as by going against the teachings. Shallamese are supposed to be upholding Good, Light and Creation because it's the natural order of things, not because it's 'right'.
confident that the current generation of these "PvP asshats" will exercise a
reasonable amount of restraint. I am also confident that the admins will
be able to sort out those trying to circumvent these rules.
And the fact that I, the player, is against PvP stuff because I find it more repulsive and moronic than anything else that's ever been thought up by mankind.
See that Veldrin? The new PK rules just went -live-.
You're going to have to live with this fact. Don't worry, so far my battles are 2/3 in my favor (no more snub, no more PK lawbook.) Next up, issues. But thats a battle I'll win down the road, I'll take this 2/3 win and cash out like a fat casino payday.
Don't worry. The same administrators you have been using to handle your issues will still be there should anyone cross the line. As I said earlier, give the new rules a chance. Honestly, you don't even have a choice here. The rules are -live-, and you are going to either live with it, or quit Achaea, those are your only options. It seems very straightforward too. "Don't be a jerk." Easy as pie.
This allows some pretty free reign when conducting PK Achaea-wide, and I'm confident the system will work very well. Take me for example. I don't look at this as a situation as an opportunity to start killing everything left and right, incorporating it into some grand RP scheme just so I can kill you. These new rules are great, allow the players more levity, and also, your admin buddies can take a breather.
Things could be worse, Veldrin. In -my- rulebook, you should be open PK for the amount you use the market channel to post that damned Crescents Moon post. No offence, but I want to punch you everytime I see that thing. I also get pretty angry looking at your avatar too, it's been around way too long. I'm in full agreement with Cooper on this too. Shallam is the city of light and faces a lot of hardship fighting enemies on multiple fronts, but they do so with grace and dignity. As the house leader that you are, I feel a little bad for your subordinates knowing they have a pacifist in charge that's telling them god knows what.
Magi newbie says, "Damn, I died. How can I prevent broken limbs and paralysis sir?"
Leader says, "Issue them, consider it a platinum tree tat!"
Now its none of my business, but if I was a betting man, which I am, I'd quickly wager every credit I've put into Achaea that you were one of the top five most prolific issuer/snubbers in Achaean history. I can confidently and without shame drop that truth bomb.
In summary, thank the divine for trusting in the playerbase with such a good set of rules, and one that places characters in charge of more IC approaches. Handle things IC before you tug teachers skirt with a tear in your eye. You'd be surprised how well thing will be for everyone in the long run. I was right about snub being for the weak and OOC, and I'll be right about this too.
Next up, issues. Sarapis, if you want me to handle the issue system and fix it, just make an announce post telling the players if they have a grievance, to message Xenomorph for a verdict. I'm sure Mhaldor and Ashtan would be extremely happy with my skills as a judge. Can't speak for the rest of you guys, but in the end, you don't really matter
See you IG
