Or staff could set up a notification system that collects a list of accounts that have X amount of karma but haven't gained karma in Y amount of time, then review them and grant karma as appropriate. Y'know, do their job of making the game a pleasant thing to play.

Player priorities are so funny. I could care less about this change.
I feel mostly the same. Oh, some other high-karma gick can spy on me or hurt me in some way? *SNORE*.
I would genuinely be much more excited to see a new city on the other side of the Silt Sea, or a thousand more rooms added east of the Grasslands, or something like that. Something accessible to the entire playerbase.
In terms of code, this was probably just removing the comment indicators around some old code or a cut-and-paste into a new subguild template. Really don't mind some high fantasy magic spilling back into my low fantasy world, but I'd like to see something new maybe.
Staff has confirmed new areas are in the works. There are also a few bits and pieces around the south that are new-ish if you look for them. I too would be more excited by a new city than drovians but hey it's worth talking about
I think the world in general could use some "livening" up. I've posted this before; more random ruins/outposts/oases for people to rest at it. Or fight over?
Deeper ruins that can be explored in mundane fashion. With ... I dunno ... the occasional possible reward for doing it.
I've found a number of ruins in the game now ... one killed me with some sort of magic fog. Another spawned giant spiders on me. Another I just flat out died for no apparent reason. Just boom. Dead. Heart attack? WTF.
The game world is so potentially interesting. It's just not exploited very deeply.

grumble: A hater, complaining about haters, who aren't really haters.

grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there

grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
