A few of you were angry today when Aban took part in a Lesser! Let me address that real quick.
Under old Aetolia rules Abhorash did that once or twice. Aban has too. It's been a long time so it passed out of memory. As old as it may be, I never changed that rule. (And there is a rule, they get graced when they die and moved somewhere else)
The bad look here is that an admin took a side. We never want bias, so that's hardly what we were going for. We just felt like Spirit might appreciate some bolstering and rah-rah, a little admin attention. Things have clearly changed, so I'll amend the rule and you won't see this sort of thing again.
Let's make this a learning moment. What's your opinion? Is it better if the Adminchar dies instead of the grace stuff? Can this be done without frustration? The goal was to blur the line between NPCs being animated and never helping, or Gods just throwing lightning and blowing people up. Note, I ask this for education, not that we're going to make binding decisions with quick consensus here.
Is it okay if there's no XP loss?
Do we need to make sure someone is active on both sides?
