As the title says, a random thought on PvP.
This is a RP server. I believe the (relatively) new limited PvP rule was brought in to enhance the RP experience, not detract. Player vs Player should, in my opinion, be at the end of RP interaction, not as the 'port of first call'.
Respect those that, for reasons IC or OOC, do not wish to engage in PvP.
'That's what my character would do' only carries so much weight with me. Enjoy your character and 'do' what you think they would up unto the point where it may detract from another player's enjoyment of their character.
Housing continues to be a popular topic. One thing I find difficult to agree with is the "handing down" of houses to people that simply shared the house. If there is an IC basis for the inheritance, that would be different, but I would suggest that such could/should be approved prior to the incident of dispute.
What I suggest, then, is a new Housing Forum in which each house on the server has a stickied thread. Consider each thread to be the official records kept with the local city for each. The owner of the house would be listed and they would keep things updated such as who has keys, if it is jointly owned and by who, etc.
I'll give an example: Bumblebee uses a room at someone's home. What if that player stopped playing or the PC permed or such? Do you think he (and any other key holders) should inherit the house for free? Do you think that they should even be given first chance to purchase it? Such decisions should be made by the owning player before they leave or at the team's discretion.
I was sort of hoping these would quietly disappear in the transfer to V3, but since they are still up to their wacky antics, could we either yank them (they serve no purpose whatsoever, not even as barmaids), or adjust them to ditch the name token and just use a generic greeting instead? This has been mentioned and made fun of for time on end, I think. It's a really simple tweak, surely?
Alternatively, they could be actually given a purpose, such as adding a small conversation about the city and work to be done around it, but obviously that would mean actually adding conversations to them, which means they are no longer smile plastered generic hostesses but rather individually functioning NPCs which sort of makes the topic moot, hehe.

Hi everybody, I've added a new forum for you to post your development threads privately. They will only be able to be viewed by yourself, Administrators, Gamemasters and Character Approvers. If you wish your existing thread to be moved to that section, please reply here. Yes you can have both a public and private CDT, one in this forum and one in the other. Cheers, orth
