    Working on the park picnic scenario, actually, it's common courtesy for those soccer players to apologize if their ball did go into someone's picnic, and then adjust. Especially if the picnicking person got to the spot first.

    In this case, the druid presumably did imprint on the grove first, which means that visitors should at least be courteous enough to adjust to accommodate them and their needs.

    As a druid, I have to say that Aralaya is right. Groves are very special (although perhaps not as much as they used to be back in the day), they are a home away from home. They are very different from a cart or a tent.

    That being said, the druid of course does not OWN the Grove. I personally would not eject someone hanging out in my Grove, unless they were vandalizing or something, but I might entertain the notion. It would feel like an intrusion.

    I feel like both of them had RP justification for what they did. There was nothing amiss.

    I don't think anyone disagrees that it is different for the follower of Nature. Unfortunately, the world does not revolve around those who hold that opinion.

    We should probably go back to quotes. Neither side did anything wrong. The grove user is free to use grove eject, but that does open him up to retaliation.

    Common courtesy like that is nice, but it's not all that assured even in the real world, let alone in a world with people who worship a destructive force like Chaos, or an Evil overlord like Sartan. You can have a nice picnic, but if a mobster or yakuza steps in, are you going to tell them to bugger off too and expect an apology?

    For as long as I can remember, moving someone has been an attack.

    Analogies are a terrible way to argue.

    When it comes to rules in a game, what you 'feel' doesn't really matter. I get what you mean when you say a grove is special to you, but I don't get to say that going around murdering people for laughing is special to me. The ruling on groves is neither new, nor ambiguous: there's nothing special about a grove from a rules standpoint, and you definitely never own it, no matter how much you love your grove, in your heart. 

    I'm not entirely sure why @Pyori is adamant about forum-shaming some random, ill-informed dude, and if you want to call 'em out for being rude, then great! Just don't fish around for rules that don't exist. Be straight up; you can tell someone you think they're rude, it's not a crime.

    Let us all remember that if you assert something (like an analogy) to be true, it is not on others to prove that it is not true. It is on you to prove that it is true.

    That's how these things work.

    It was a situation where no one did anything wrong too, so bizarre.

    No...it really cant.

    Constructive discussion about a city and its path does not equal "I got mad and hit someone for pushing me, AND I want to take it public!".

    You're just grasping at straws now.

    Nobody is mad. You should probably read the posts.

    I think the point is that we don't want to read the posts and would like to read something actually memorable.

    If it was how you wanted it to be, the thread would be all of about 20-30 pages long, not 739. Discussions happen as a result of posts, that's how forums tend to work.

    Nobody is holding a gun to your head, forcing you to read through every post.

    You post a log of someone doing something you feel is unacceptable, seeking people agree with you that what they did is wrong and thus validate your point of view?

    The implication that you're in some way superior to the person whose log you're posting for everyone to see and agree with you, is pretty evident. That's shaming.

    For the record, no judgment! You do you. 

    Eta: just to clarify, nothing about that is wrong.

    If that's your definition of shaming (which is correct; not denying that) then you prolly shouldn't be using it to refer to what I did. Considering nowhere did I say what he did was unacceptable, or unjustified. In fact, I rather clearly stated the opposite.

    You need to go back and read the original post, and not take everyone else's posts as my PoV.

    Now now, children, be nice. Those are not memorable quotes

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    Millenials is like, people aged 18-35 I think right now, which I think is the greater majority of our playerbase.
