    I'm peeved that player generated conflict was squashed by a volunteer. Good, clean, not even remotely toxic conflict with just the smallest traces of salt. Opt in style. You didn't want in it, then just don't be in it. Was that simple.


    @Tiur was there a rule change saying that we can't shout that no one knows about? Are we not allowed to generate our own PK ICly? Nothing about what happened came anywhere near close to breaking any rule I have ever heard of, but it was stifled by your staff regardless.

    Mortals shouting nonsense until Gods yell shut up has been a time-honoured tradition for over 15 years. You used a Sapience wide means of communication, and got a reply from a Divine; most players feel like that's part of the fun. In fact, a number of players expressed that fun when Tanix joined in, and conversations all over started up.

    I wonder if we play the same game sometimes.

    I'd have no issue if the gods actually added to the script. Telling people to stop shouting or be zapped/eaten isn't adding to that script, it's just telling people to shut up and stop what they're doing, especially when it's their sole purpose for going vis.

    The only reason why anything about Tanix's involvement was interesting was because I logged out due the pure disgust I had for the conflict getting snuffed out

    Edit: Cus let's be real, otherwise it'd just have been 'nothing to see here, someone got zapped'.

    Hello friends!


    I apologize for getting involved, after shouting - in a way that has generally felt fluid on Tanixalthas - to join in. As a result, after getting to interact with a couple of people due to the shouts, even after I wasn't fully visible on Tanixalthas to all of you on the WHO list, I thought I had added to the overall enjoyment of the game. That has only ever been, and still remains, my sole goal as the staff member behind two of our Gods. I am only just returning to RP capacity after working on something behind the scenes, so it seemed like a good place to jump in.


    My judgment was misplaced so, again, I am sorry I ruined your fun, but I appreciate those who engaged with me afterwards also. Thank you.

    Who did you interact with? Who expressed 'fun' like Tiur said? Having spoken with multiple players involved I'm not getting that vibe and according to the general public you ghosted again right after.

    Tiur has a history of lying (to me, at least) and you have a history of playing damage control for him. I truly do not want to be the person I am right now with how upset I am over everything that seems to happen lately, but I'm at the point where I need proof that anything like this happened at all.

    I appreciate your questions, but I won't name characters, and by extension, players, myself. I have no desire to put anyone in a place they don't want to be.

    If they would like to join in themselves, they are welcome. Otherwise, the question of 'who' will have to go unanswered, I'm sorry.

    However, as for ghosting, unfortunately I'm at work, so I simply removed myself from the WHO list so as to not unintentionally ignore any NEW enquiries but continued to interact with those not-mentioned-by-name who reached out to continue what stemmed from my interruption.

    I know that doesn't really help you, but I wanted to explain why I won't name-names. It isn't my place in this situation - the limelight is on my actions and your disappointment in them, not theirs.

    You're right, it doesn't help me. It's just convenient for you.

    I feel someone needs to reiterate that Kyna bothered to get on the forums and apologize. This isn't a witch hunt.

    Personally, I thought the stun wasn't necessary but the fact that Gods come on to yell "SILENCE" or further add to whatever is being shouted in order to get it to stop is nice.

    I'd esteem any Celeni that makes the effort to come out and join the RP. People complain that they don't get enough interaction and when it's given people complain that it isn't the kind they want.

    Seriously?
    An elaborate training post gives a pained sigh.

    The shouts weren't getting out of hand, it wasn't an ongoing back and large back and forth and the result was guild RPK. Before anything can even come if it there's the call for "Silence".

    I mean it's cool some people got to drink lemonade, but the issue is less about the RP we were given and more about an ongoing feeling like conflict and interesting, organic, player initiated RP is being neutered.

    People who immediately go OOC to whine after they die in open PK zones and then act holier than thou later on.

    One thing that has always been mildly annoying and disappointing for me is the rampant cliquiness in this game. Instead of this situation diminishing the further we all get from our high school days it seems like it's actually getting worse.

    I pride myself on having a very thick skin. This means I could sit down and have a beer and laugh with someone regardless of race, creed, color, or any disagreements I may have with how they live their life really so long as that person is willing to treat me with the same respect.

    Aetolia would be a better place if everyone would just have nice thick troll skin.

    The song "High School Never Ends" came out when I was in high school and I remember thinking that it must be an innacurate representation of most adults.

    It is not, and that is just so disappointing. But, it makes me appreciate the song a lot more.

    Unless you're part of the OTHER clique, then it's ok. Also, I graduated from highschool, rushing Carni house in da fall.

    I don't even get it, I just don't care. Quit whatever low key passive stuff this is. Don't anyone add to it, just stop.

    2019/06/17 19:31:23 - Giliand has claimed the bounty of 25000 gold on Swara.


    Honestly, this is a huge pet peeve of mine. It's taking advantage of mechanical loopholes to avoid consequences and simultaneously benefit.

    Do explain! Is it something needing fixing?

    E:

    An attentive Celani explained it in small words with pauses for me to nod. We're kinda of two minds on it, but it can go in the stack for brainstorming a solution. My first thought is that you should just make it illegal.

    Bounty them for 1gp if possible - they can't split 1gp.

    It doesn't drain your city of funds, but doesn't answer your primary concern.

    We tend to prefer to allow corruption, then leave players to fix it. It's one thing to disable the ability to rob a city blind and ruin the game for everyone, and another to allow small stuff like a corrupt leader RP.

    It is one thing to allow corruption, but to allow someone with a bounty to get a buddy to claim it to be free of said bounty defeats the purpose of even setting bounties. In my opinion. They should be tethered aligned.

    To be fair, I would agree with it being tether aligned. However this was also a deal brokered with Bloodloch citizens and they took part of the gold.

    To re-bounty me is one thing, but to complain and then bounty Giliand for following through on a deal agreed upon? Just saying, maybe people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
