He told me he still wants to be considered a newbie (even if he is big and knows enough to travel around) because he still has questions to do. That made me think (again) on this issue: if a newbie enters Genesis, and I pick him up, take him to Faerun and grow him to adventurer in a single day, he will lose his pin when he still needs it.
There could be an expert newbie if he is lucky enough to meet people to team with them, but the system won't accept that. That is why I think newbies should be considered according to their time around.
2 days would be the minimum, but would be nice to have statistics about how long it takes a newbie to graduate from the newbie land, and to determine a good time (maybe 5 days) to consider a newbie as one. This way we could stick pump them up but have time to play as newbies (asking questions, for example). Maybe have the home command removed after a couple of days, but keep considering newbies as such for a few days more?
I couldnt agree more,it is so easy for a newbie to become adventurer and loose the pin.Chamdin for example teamed with Hektor,Yanus,Madmartigan and Castaneda watching them slay trolls.I dont know how many fantastics I made that time.I was violent when the team split.
The thing was that Chamdin was far more experienced than the player behind him.
After a meeting with Death and Lars I teamed with a monk,Sharn,and we went to Faerun.I become adventurer and felt surprised when my pin vanished.I didnt have more knowledge about Genesis than before but the game considered me an experienced player.I had explored Calia and Sparkle at that time so Yes I considered me being the utter newbie.
I prefer a time limit if the person within that time reached the level Adventurer at least.
As an example,when I collected signatures for my booktask I ran into a character,younger than me but already rising hero.He could not sign my book.
He wasnt experienced enough?,or old enough.
The Newbie pin could have the same time limit insted of level limit.
