And that has carried down to the EoD descendants. I used to play on The
Creator's Shadow, and saw "chaos mode" twice. Once for a planned pwipe,
and once because too many pfiles got messed up and they decided to turn it
into a wipe.

The roleplayers stayed away, but both the "casual players" and the
"killers" had a hell of a blast.

Out of curiousity, Greg, which imm were you from EoD? :)
