    Curse

    First, in the beginning I will like to salute all readers if this (and non-readers) , off course with the word hi, not with hello because reminds me of one song that is very painful for me. OK, so lets be serious. *annoying smile* I was thinking of new way how to make the fighting system more interesting, or maybe the right word more unpredictable. Why unpredictable and how? We all fight, we all use VE during the fight , afer that we regenerate and so and on. However, I had one new feature coming in my mind that can be in great benefit during the fights, but will bring consequences within. That is curse, or anathema maybe. We have tokens, which we can add on the creatures, but many people don't like them. I'm still abstemious about them. My way of implementing the curses is with using new slot just for them. They can be activated during the fight and can have different abilities. For example, not allowing a creature to regenerate more that it's half vitality capacity. And not just during the fight, that will long for a week or until is cured with something. How we can get this curses is a thing that i don't considered yet. But it must be something hard reachable. Now the more interesting part. Like anything else curses brings some cost. That cost come from their natural modus operandi. You like to use them, then face with the consequences. What consequences? Temporarily, unknown decomposition of your main VE. It will simple drop. What is the point of this? It will give more options to the players, they can have more unique style of playing, this will make fighting system even more unpredictable, will make this game even richer and in the end it won't make the fighting so isolated part from your character. Off course there are much more things to be think of, but if there is a will for this and real base to get implemented then why not? Please post your comments, short or long, good and bad, let me read what you think.

    Wp Name Change

    Anyone else consider it funny that some think a name is too important to change, while others argue it is not important enough to change? As others have said, I doubt it is easily exploitable. Even cheating to a WP, if such does happen (let's not go there in this thread), requires you to know - suck up to - people that have WP to spare. Which should take enough time for several people to know enough about you to notice your 'disappearance' and be suspicious of that new guy with 100+ AD that looks faintly familiar but absolutely nobody ever saw before. @dst: why are you against people wasting WP on silly things? Consider it natural selection.

    Wp Name Change

    "Because the name identifies a person, for heaven's sake!" changing identity also means changing how people identify you "This is about reputation and 'the records' of people, whether you can trust somebody or not, and everything else around them!" scamming and lying is part of life... someone's role might be to trick and tease. What's wrong with that? you need to have diversity of roles in our world... "Same goes for multiple offences, how do you count them on somebody who changes his name?" I doubt someone would change their name and waste a WP only to "break the dojo rules" for 100 times. and about "false reasons" of giving a WP... how come an ability to change name will affect that? what, other options in WP shop aren't good enough as changing name, and this will go people fall into temptations???!!!!

    I support Fenrir's idea. it would actually be very realistic to be able to change your identity with costs. Why not? If someone doesn't want their history to be forgotten (well if someone changes their identity it might also mean that they do not care about "near mortal annals") they can always announce it on their papers, forums, wherever that that new character is an evolution of previous one. Why are you all so sceptical about this?

    And for exactly the reasons Fenrir brought up there shouldn't be a name change. People can switch avatars like socks nowadays if they want to, their papers are under their own control anyway, and i'd guess we are not far from an ignore function for PL, then even that is under your control. If you get the name change added on that, a normal player can't identify anybody else anymore, which means basically deleting one's history. Does the police delete your records just because you didn't misbehave in a few months? Therefore: [size="7"]NO[/size]

    What is wrong with changing your name? If you want to change your character's identity, why not do so? If MD is an allegory for the human psyche, then this would make perfect sense. People change who they are through hard work and determination. Isn't that how one acquires a WP? Through hard work and determination? It takes weeks, months, years perhaps to truly change your identity, and this can be related to the amount of work that is required to acquire a WP. It is incredibly easy to change your character's image now. As it is in real life. Plastic surgery or personal training can change your body in extreme ways. It requires a bit of money to do so in most cases too, like the Avatars. Changing who you are though, that requires work, and WPs can be related to that work. If we can have a remove all xp WP, I am sure we can have a WP option to change our names too.

    Changing a name means a LOT, you could easily reforge a totally new character by changing your name. I think a name, like an avatar is very important. Like with Eigger, I think that name Changes should only be able to be done by Mur because of some serious reason. So my answer is no, A name is special, and being able to change it should only be done by Mur. For the most he will fix spelling mistakes with just a simple email, so i dont see that as a valid reason.

    I'm all for this. The requirement for such a thing: 10 used WP's.

    Guardians Recruitment

    [quote name='CrazyMike' date='07 May 2010 - 01:23 AM' timestamp='1273213438' post='59522'] For other potential candidates who are interested in joining GOTR, it is good that the candidate is a strong individual. But joining GOTR means you will be part of the Guardians family. Caring what other GOTR says or thinks about you is important. GOTR does not require grovelling or apple polishing. We seek in individuals who can reflect the spirit of GOTR. We want individuals who can carry the principles of GOTR. We want an individual who is not afraid of being in a team. GOTR is not just an alliance, we are also a family who cares for each other. [/quote] Oh nicely said, CrazyMike. That is so true.

    Wp Name Change

    Why not put there a wish for the tags? I bet I will see lots of awarded WPs following that for things like hmm...let me quote a bit: "Guardian quest" "Mentorship" "for services" Also, if you can't RP with a name like Smarty Pants then you will not be able to do it if you change it to Dumb Shoes. A name is just a name. It doesn't affect you in any way(of course unless you call yourself mentally challenged guy or <insert not that smart name here>) .So basically it's a waste of WPs and wishes in the Wish shop.

    Dear Community,

    People are legends for different reasons. Some, like Khal are mentioned and remembered a lot it seems, others not so much. Personally, I feel that this is a job for the legend speakers or archivists in general. Often the most important things people do are the things that few people know about. It is this that makes people real heroes and tragically often forgotten or unknown by many. You could say that hero is a better word than legend. Some legends are more myth than reality. Has Jonn a legend? it seems not. But he meant a lot to me and his absence has been felt I think. He should not be forgotten, I feel that would be a crime somehow. Jonn was definately a person that I admired and respected and I feel he made a very real and definate contribution to life in MD. He should be remembered, a definate hero.

[/quote] You're right. I should not complain about players wasting WPs on silly things. The problem is that the wish shop gets full of things I don't need (yes, I am an egotistic person). I want something that is worth a WP. Name change? Why not put it in the MD Shop? Somewhere after the gold coin? Because as I already said: stupidity should be payed (in case of a mistake). And also vanity should be payed (in case you wish to change your name just because Dumb shoes fits more your role then Smarty pants).

    No. If you were stupid enough to make mistakes or to choose your name wrong then you should be stuck with it.
