Re: Talking the talk..

just dont personally feel there is a need to allow newbies to enter high tier areas so they can be drug around. Feelings do not equal good game design. Agreed! Hence why a lot of suggestions get tossed in a pile and forgotten about. I believe it's bad game design to give newbies a optimal path to b...

Re: Talking the talk..

Taking newbies along already significantly reduces exp generation to the point where a sizable percent of the MUD wouldn't bother.  Is it helpful or necessary to gatekeep the generosity of veterans further? (Thank you Nils for recently making this point.  I wrote all this before my forum access was...

Re: Talking the talk..

...really? Really. An area is coded and balanced for guilds and then someone comes in with darkness and turns a challenging area into a snooze. ToA was a perfect example of watching small players run through an area not exactly meant for them to solo as they obtained massive amounts of gold coins. ...

Re: Talking the talk..

The question would be are you doing it for the newbies sake or for yours?

Re: The rise of the Nameless Horror!

Reading the previous posts from Arman and Cherek reminds me, why I stopped posting, not only because of the incredible conservatism that keep insisting not to manage Genesis as an actual game, but most of all the unwillingness to actually READ what is written in good faith, instead of picking at a ...
