Bleh, well, I wrote a 3 page explanitions on my ideas to eleminate pk and
abusive players, but wasn't sure if it came across very clearly so am
posting ideas which I think would help, but not the exact ways I would
implement them so as to cut down on space.
Standardized personal descripts, (hair color, length, eye color etc)
Layered eq visibility (Pc and NPC alike)
Non-automatic pc name visibility
Wound based instead of hp, allows for more non-deadly battles.
Coord based world:
Adds to anonynimity, not everyone occupies same space in same room.
Sight, soun, smell, taste and touch have different ranges.
Less support for invasive player social commands:
Tell, who, shout, etc...bleh, replace with something realistic
yet still useful. Telepaths, (require name, see anonynimity) etc.
Now, I could go into a long discusion why I think some or all of this
would help to counter abusive players without restricting all the players
of the game to non-realistic "game" rules. I.e. you can't kill that
person because he is cotroled by a player, etc. And I know it's not all
worked out here, but I think some of these ideas would help to eliminate
the problems that were generated by an over simplified mu* environment.
--hope some of this makes sense, cause it's sorta late and I need sleep,
