    @Kodaza but people on ignore CAN skill attack and kill you and you them, so knowning the people are around you is a good thing.

    I had that thought, myself, but since it would in this way disadvantage the person putting the other on ignore it might actually discourage an over-use of ignore that I occasionally see now (being used to get the last word in IC arguments, for example).

    Since the idea of ignore is "I have tried to reason with this person and it just isn't working, so I want to have nothing to do with this person ICly or OOCly", letting the person ignoring put themselves at a mechanical disadvantage for sake of truly not having to see the other around their happy-fun-time-entertainment-box activity seems reasonable it to me.

    The problem is, and whether or not I agree this is a problem is up for debate, if I have PK cause against @Zaila and insult her some and hurt her piddle feelings, she might needlessly put me on IGNORE and then I can't claim my legitimate cause on her. It would make it very easy for people to circumvent the point of the system and just keep themselves from being PK'd. I think there just is no good solution with IGNORE, so we do what we can with what we have.

    I'm confused, Kodaza's idea wouldn't do anything to limit this, either. If I put you on ignore, you'd still be able to see me around like usual and PK me without any limitation since IGNORE doesn't save you from PK in any way; the only difference is that I wouldn't be as able to hide from you coming to get me because I wouldn't know you were around to kill me!

    Yeah, what Zaila said. Let's say I have Arbre on ignore, and I don't even want to know when Arbre is online -- not in LOOK, not in CWHO, nothin'. This wouldn't stop Arbre from killing me, and if anything would just get me ambushed a lot.

    Trying to use IGNORE to circumvent PK would be a misuse of the system regardless, so it'd be reasonable for the people who abuse the system to be punished or otherwise handled by admin.

    Given how serious it's taken when people try to circumvent being ignored, it seems that the system is designed as a tool to protect users. So more protection would be a good thing, and that protection shouldn't be withheld from people who need/want it just because it might be abused. Give the intended, correct users their functionality, and deal with the abuse cases when they arise.

    Not interacting will never save anyone from PK. Would it reduce reasons of the other side? Sometimes. But in the end we are playing a game where everything is connected to each other organically by choice & consequence.

    But if the person wants to put himself/herself at a disadvantage by not learning about online status of the other person that looks like a nice "optional" thing.

    @Tiur I don't suppose it could be a thing for Wayfarers to be able to cobble together their own handaxes using like.. stone and wood. It'd make a terrible axe, compared to anything crafted, but something usable. (Sort of like Soul Cleaver for Carnifex, or Earthen Flail for Teradrim.)

    It could also be completely uncustomized, in terms of stat alotment. Just a static like.. 120/90/120 or something.

    Currently we have DESIGN LIST ACCESS to look through all the designs we have access to. These are the options currently DESIGN LIST [ACCESS] [GUILD|CITY|HOUSE|ORDER|CLAN [alias]] [[skill]|[item]|[tag]]. Is it possible to add in two more categories there? NAME [person] and also EXPIRED. For some unknown reason when I do DESIGN LIST ACCESS GUILD not all of the Carnifex come up then I have to go through hundreds of designs in DESIGN LIST ACCESS to find the expired ones.

    side note: DESIGN LIST EXPIRED only shows designs you have made that are expired not ones aligned to an Org or shared with you.

    DESIGN LIST ACCESS GUILD will show the designs that people have kept but allowed the guild access to. DESIGN LIST GUILD shows all the designs the guild itself owns.

    For whatever known reason, we some designs that are saved to the Carnifex and some to the different Carnifex clans. So being able to DESIGN LIST ACCESS EXPIRED would be beneficial to me.

    Artifact bonedagger!
    (Or if there's a reason this can't be, maybe an artifact bag of femurs? So I can DRAW BONEDAGGER FROM BAG. I would like to customize my bonedagger though.)

    i am curious why bonedaggers aren't among the things that can be made permanent & customized similar to mage staff, shaman quarterstaff, archivist codex/token, etc. the bonedagger appears to technically be coded as a weapon with stats, but its stats are 0/0/0 and have no relationship to damage or any other uses. so, if what @Leana's asking for isn't possible, could we maybe have a short explanation why? i find it confusing XD thanks

    My initial guess is that, while the bonedagger itself is an item, its messages are hard coded and without expansions. That means a custom one wouldn't do anything. We'd need to spiff up all the code in the skillset.. which even the Celani I whip SPECIFICALLY for horrible tasks like that won't do. Maybe someday

    I'd still buy one if it didn't show up in the messages when used. I just want it to be custom when held and never decay. :)

    On the subject of customized things, it'd be swell if vampires could customize their feed messages and/or undead minions.

    Edit: Speaking of undead minions, I'd likely spring to buy an artifact one that has max stats (or close to) with the ability to mutate it every 30 minutes if it meant I didn't have to go kill a mobile to make it. Would solve the customization issue, too.

    maybe ask the celani who gave me a custom, permanent bonedagger how they did it :p

    Wtb Relic Info (relicpower) sort like AP INFO does!

    Also. Would love to be able to describe what I smell like when stinly as a Nazetu or Arqeshi over the cap of level 50. If shedding is supposed to surpress the stinky affliction, but doesn't, I'd like to be able to denote without the use of perfume or cologne, that my xenobleb self smells like spiced fruit without hoping people look at his description

    You know what would be truly great!?! When you are in the stock room of a shop and look at an item, there is another column added with base price so you do not have to figure it out with percentages if you have a discount.
