While there was once a time when anyone could gather, a code was put in to prevent people without the skill already in their skill list to begin gathering. Now you need to actually gain the skill first and only then you can gather. Before that, you could gather even without a skill. Which caused plenty of hilarity when a 1 hour total noob stumbled onto help gather and figured "Hey, let's gather in the middle of the tavern". Insta wanted, insta NPCs, insta death. Boom.
Drovian blades can also periodically curse you. Which is an incredible power. It lowers your off/def by a certain amount. If I recall correctly, at sul or mon, it's like -30 def. And curse is not mentioned in your effects list. So you could be cursed and not know it. Though moving around like a drunk would tip you off. Anyway ... drov swords are fucking scary.
Another world, another time, in the age of wonder.AThousands of years ago, this land (Zalanthas)was green and good - until theCrystal crackedDragon came. For a single piece was lost; a shard of the Crystal.Then strife began, and two new races appeared: the cruel Skeksis, the gentle Mystics. Here in the castle of the Crystal, the Skeksis took control. Now the Skeksis gather in the sacred chamber, where the Crystal hangs above a shaft of air and fire. The Skeksis with their hard and twisted bodies, their harsh and twisted wills. For a thousand years they have ruled, yet now there are only ten. A dying race, ruled by a dying emperor, imprisoned within themselves in a dying land. Today, once more, they gather at the Crystal as the first sun climbs to its peak. For this is the way of the Skeksis. As they ravaged the land, so too they learned to draw new life from the sun. Today, once more, they will replenish themselves, cheat death again, through the power of their source, their treasure, their fate - the Dark Crystal.- Zalanthas

I remember being marked for death outside 'nak many, many, many years ago when you could gather and I emoted gathering and sent the would-be murderers running. Mind you, I saw this from a defiler in person, but they definitely did not appreciate me doing that at all.
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.

qwerty: ask jcarter. I think he's giving it away

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.
