Okay, so recently I had issued to get the org name for Iskadar to ally them to Kongol Drak, the dwarven high clan, so that we could defend them. The response is below:
2017/4/06/17:19 Greetings! In regards to your issue#79344: The org is iskadarpriests. Though do note
that Kongol Drak has no reason to defend Iskadar unless Iskadar mutually agrees to the alliance. If
you have any further questions or concerns, please file them through an ISSUE ME!
So this has got me questioning some other relations I see across the board and I'd also like to give a fair warning to people who defend areas not mutually allied. I'll give one example using Ashtan, and I'm not pointing fingers at anyone as I have definitely enemied people to Kongol Drak for hunting areas not mutually allied and was ready to defend if need be. Just wanting to get everyone's opinion on it and perhaps some clarification. Ashtan is allied to Thera. Just Thera. Yet defends Maim which by all technicalities is a different area entirely (Maim's Mansion). Maim's is not on CITY RELATIONS ASHTAN. It's only bothersome when you consider the number of people who have been attacked or in the worst case been enemied to Ashtan for it. All this when by going off my issue... should not be allowed. So I'm looking to get a feel on how everyone interprets it. Plenty of other cities/orgs/clans have defended areas that are not even mutually allied at all. A good example to look at is Mhaldor. They're mutually allied to all the places I'd expect them to defend and not just a one-way ally. I don't believe in stalling city/org/clan RP until the Garden can set up a neat RP event for you in which the area/org accepts or declines the alliance, but I also don't believe in just letting people have RP opportunities wiped away with a whole city because relations are not being used correctly and they made a mistake. I'd like to think common sense could be used and if someone is an ass after a warning they might as well expect to get enemied/attacked, but we all know there are those people who will get technical and issue and I'd rather not be on the losing end of one.
I do recognize that everyone's Patron/Divine may not be readily available to help out with the mutual ally status or any RP events that may or may not be a part of the process. If anyone has any ideas for a more streamlined process that is not prone to being abused for lolpk opportunities I'd love to hear.
