I've always thought of it as being a shame that my characters are always rather.. Snippy. I'd love to go all Hannibal Lecter on a dorf and see if I can mind-break him into making him believe his focus is useless.
You know an RPI has turned to shit when PKing clanleads for their loot is applauded as the pinnacle of awesomeness.
You left out the part where it was poor RP. I didn't see a part like that but you did mention RPIs. So I have to assume your complaint is about poor RP. feel free to add it. Because that's the only part that matters.
Perhaps youd prefer the imms had stepped in and rescued the clanlead?
What I'm arguing is that there's not any valid reason to suddenly be worried that every single person in game is going to be killing you with a rageboner made of magick. People had perfectly good rageboners without magick
Don't need RP when you play dwarf. Does it help a focus? Counts as RP for anything and everything
For context, the breed and my char really hated each other by then. Breed was this pissy outdoors ranger, my guy was a rinther who didn't take orders well. My character's focus was to get every warrior in the city to use a shield. Breed kept asking noobs to go two weapons. They argued a lot about that because breed was sarge and my dorf was the weapons trainer. People don't trust (half)elves. I say don't trust dorfs. Dorfs are way more dirty and conniving than elves. I gave the guy a kudos for playing such a hateable character, even against his safety. He tuned up the breed bitchiness a lot after that kudos, and was almost begging to get killed. So hope he at least got half karma for that ending.
And I wish up every time I'm about to PK someone. Partly so the staff can enjoy the view, partly so there's no complaints about unfairness.
I don't even PK that much. That's why most of my characters use maces and other KO things instead of backstab. Even in the rinth, I knock people out instead of killing them because it's more fun to see that someone come back for vengeance later. Two of my assassin chars got killed that way, by someone they left alive. Or maybe someone else killed them idk.
Arm's about PVP anyway, with a good dose of RP to make the deaths memorable.
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

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.
