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.

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
