    What other method has someone actually used to break into your house to interrupt your private roleplay, other than prism? I know you're not going to have a log, but I'd love the anecdote. 

    ETA: I'm not even going to address the other thing. If you don't see why it's stunningly fucked up to equate telling someone to buy no-prism to stop prisming to victim-shaming people who have been assaulted/harassed, I have no idea what to say to you.

    My goal isn't to make invaders and their supporters feel good about themselves.

    Sometimes you should really take a step back when arguing about a text game.

    You said no-prism 'only stops so much.' So, in the interest of actually drawing out something positive in the form of an upgrade to stop the other stuff, I'd like to know- what other methods have you seen people use to get into a house? 

    Using telepathy to force someone to get rid of a monolith requires deaf strip (attack) and causes damage via mushroom, both of which are definitely attacks, so you can't do them to other people without a legit reason. 

    I can't really think of anything else except for eye infiltration, and it's already been suggested that that should be addressed. 

    So- what are we missing? Do enlighten us.

    Well, if you guys read the thread, I am pretty sure I mentioned increased infamy for.prisms before anyone else brought it up, I also suggested other things like no more subdivisions which would make cities safer. And I am plenty for ways to display pretty stuff that you can't be stolen from.

    But I have also mudsexed for hours straight and never been interrupted, the only stuff I have had stolen were a couple of fullplates I had left in my house when I went inactive. I don't think there is anywhere near the massive problem people seem to think there is. Sure if you are a known person you will be targetted more than those of us who have tiny social circles, but you known people usually have prettier stuff too, usually get to participate in stuff that I only get to read about in events posts even on the off chance I was online at the time.

    Every single house I have been in, from the time houses were founded from guilds, has had part of the first tier of novicehood antitheft techniques. And theft berely exists anymore. Stop being scared of stuff that doesn't happen, if you are chatting in your house do it in the lounge that has furniture not your collection of rare skulls or whatever, and don't be a pussy if someone comes knocking wanting to play, it never happens anyway.

    As for mining, if a mine produces more than the rift can hold that is a seperate issue and should be brought up somewhere else.

    In my case, I had a plan to make an outdoor courtyard garden of sorts in the middle of my house. You can probably guess where this is going....... (track)

    And again, the burden continues to lie with potential victims, since a couple of deaths (at best) is nothing to your usual invader. Not when they have the opportunity to frustrate someone, make them waste their time, and possibly make off or destroy that awesome bazaar item that was left out of the display case because the owner wanted to give her guests the ability to interact with the aforementioned item.

    You opt in to allow someone to track to you, though. That's 100% on you, you know that's a vulnerability. 

    To wit: it's already been agreed that the methods for displaying items should be house-owner-only accessible. I can't think of anyone except Vender, in the last RL years, who's actually destroyed someone else's items. Most people steal them to ransom them back, or just to keep them, but actually going around destroying property? That's virtually unheard of, in my experience.

    The issue at this point doesn't even seem to be theft, it's coming down to "I don't want people to interrupt me when I'm busy". Doesn't it interrupt you just as much if we start a raid in your city? Most cities I know wouldn't let people stay in their house during a raid. 
    So raid the city, at least in that way you get to fight people with actual PK ability, and the burdens are shared by that city as a whole instead of the single homeowner (because as has been said, guests have no rights!).

    And it's not about the crime per se, but the similar attitudes and worldviews that perpetuate and encourage those things to happen.

    So no one should ever attack anyone else, because it might be inconsiderate? 

    Or is it conflict by appointment only? 

    Or can you only inconvenience people who 'deserve it?' 

    I'm really not sure where you're going with this.

    Mhaldor has a free time slot Tuesday, May 15th if anyone wants to raid. Unfortunately we are all booked until then, I can sign you up to be alerted if someone pulls out of their appointment though!

    It's simple. If someone doesn't want to be involved with that sort of interaction at that specific point in time, they should be allowed to do so. 

    If you drop in on a conversation between friends and they include you (even as an antagonist), great. If not, then ideally, they should have the option to not involve you. The problem lies with the fact that methods to solve this are very limited: ships (also super secure temples). And furthermore, ship security itself is abused by people who want to escape all consequences from conflicts that they themselves have started.

    It would be good to differentiate those two sorts of people: those who just want to be left alone for a bit, and those who want to never face consequences from their crap. I am hopeful, at least, that more people would be amenable to protecting the former and discouraging the latter,

    Nicola already posted, in this thread, that the admins don't like the seclusion ships afford, and that the only reason they haven't changed the way they work is because people would bitch up a storm about it. 

    Now you want to add more of what the admins explicitly have told us they don't like.

    For the record, you're not advocating for security, you're advocating for non-interaction. Non-interaction on a wide scale is a lot more harmful than someone occasionally being prismed to because they weren't careful/couldn't be arsed to bash some and save up for non-prism. 

    Removing yourself from even the -possibility- of having someone unplanned and unwarranted enter your bubble within the game world is an incredibly harmful desire, and one of the biggest and most significant changes (in the sense of Achaea's identity as a game) was just implemented because gems and veils encouraged non-interaction. Think of how much grief the admins must've gotten (and continue to get) over that, and they still felt it was the right move. Right now, you're arguing the complete opposite of that.

    ETA: Nicola worded things much more kindly than that, I'm paraphrasing.

    They have an option to not involve the person: walk out.

    You're arguing in extreme bad faith for not even recognizing maybe you shouldn't compare text breakins to sexual assault, though, so I'm not sure why anyone's bothering.

    To actually contribute something...

    I was walking through my house counting for sigils, and trying to remember what upgrades are where. A command to list all upgrades you have in a house and in what rooms, and another command to list what upgrades you have in that room alone, would be nice for us forgetful folks.
    Feel free to IDEA that, so we can look at how feasible this is.

    On that note - everyone, do get this thread back to its original topic.

    That's what the system is for, yes! There is never a guarantee we will actually spot ideas that are simply mentioned on the forums, after all. (Especially if they're nested between derailing posts)

    Disagree. I don't believe that existing in an outdoor room should equate to opting in to tracking.

    Tracking is almost as big of a problem as prisming. The existence of tracking significantly impacted our RP in the Black Lotus Monastery, for example. Overshadowed every Master's ceremony we held.

    Also, I don't agree with purchasing no-prism (or no-track). If I buy a house, I want to spend my money on furniture, descriptions, reactions, expansions. Having to buy upgrades to safely use the damn thing is just going to turn me off. Especially if I have to continue buying those upgrades everytime I expand.

    Question for those more familiar with other classes as I haven't dabbled in them, with prism-proof and mono that stops the prism, wand of portals, and any other similar class abilities?

    Also, for consequences on the home owner, this might only be in my city but I also think it sucks that outside of being interrupted and possibly losing your stuff that not only does it risk city security but there are city involved consequences if it happens more than once. I understand there are the above listed precautions but if one hasn't yet earned the price of no-prism then monolith only holds it off for so long, and there's a number of unexpected things that can happen which people don't think to leave the plot or journal. Such circumstances can be a parent suddenly hearing their kid get into something or getting hurt and jumping up without a thought to investigate, turning away to check on a pet getting into something, and even in my case I've DC'ed a number of times while passing the time logged in during the multiple times my grandparents have been at the hospital (in this case I am thankful for the way ships are now currently). Things like that where the trespasser has perfect timing and the homeowner gets screwed by something in real life is where I agree with those who feel it's very lopsided on consequences and I'm still not sure the Marks system is enough, but I'm also at a loss for what a better alternative is and I don't envy the admins for their positions.

    HOUSING SHOW ROOM UPGRADES. There's not one for the entire property, but you can at least check each room.

    What do you need a room upgrade to make it be outdoors for, except for flying into and out of it?

    In terms of role-playing, you can call any room an outdoor room without adding outdoors to it. 

    If you want to be able to fly out, you're by extension agreeing that others can fly in. Given rooms are not by default outdoors, how is this not opting in, given you have to confirm a room becoming an outdoor room?

    My OCD will not allow me to create a room that claims to be outdoors when the room title clearly states '(indoors)'. :(

    I only walk around the gardens to harvest tho, so whatevers I guess.
