Qwerty is full of utter shit as usual. Mudsex is still rampant. Mudsex is still extremely relevant as the focus of brief or lasting relationships on this game. It doesn’t matter what gender I play either.
Also Reigning mudsexed plenty. The Byn one was sexing it up with all the time.
Sorry I'm responding late, I think shakes was talking about needing to respect Reigning before...
I never gave them 'respect'. They were slaves, and though popular with the crowds and fans (RPed that way), my PCs never respected them. Friendly with them? Sure. Sometimes it worked out that the slaves would give away some of their used gear to fans, so it was worth it in that regard. But slaves are slaves. And more than once, I had one of my PCs remind them of that.
It isn't so cut and dry, especially in the realm of PCs.
A slave is more valuable than a free commoner, but the most valuable and prized slaves exist outside the realm of PC opportunity, where as PCs tend to be spectacular compared to 'regular' commoners (vnpcs) almost as a universal rule. A gladiator pc may be worth considerably more than a free pc, or even a gainfully employed pc, or they may not, based entirely on who owns them, how they're performing in the Arena and how the 'fans' view them, and who they're being compared to, as well as that persons relative values.
It isn't something you can just slot into a hierarchy, there are too many nuances to account for. It's better to deal with it organically, on a case by case basis.
And this is ignoring all the other meta considerations that plague the game, too.
qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
